We evaluated the potential activity of novel N-1-sulfonyl derivatives of pyrimidine bases uracil and cytosine on pancreatic carcinoma cells (MIAPaCa2), colon carcinomas cells (HT-29, CaCo2), cervical carcinoma cells (HeLa) and poorly-differentiated cells from lymph node metastasis of colon carcinoma (SW-620). The cytotoxicity of N-1-sulfonylpyrimidine(More)
CIN85 is a multidomain adaptor protein involved in Cbl-mediated down-regulation of epidermal growth factor (EGF) receptors. CIN85 src homology 3 domains specifically bind to a proline-arginine (PxxxPR) motif in Cbl, and this association seems to be important for EGF receptor endocytosis. Here, we report identification of novel CIN85 effectors, all(More)
Many hypotheses have been postulated to explain the intricate nature of the metastatic process, but none of them completely accounted for the actual biological and clinical observations. Consequently, metastasis still remains an open issue with only few metastasis-inducing proteins experimentally validated so far. Recently proposed novel metastatic model,(More)
Purpose: Many biochemical processes are closely related to ion exchange, adsorption, and catalysis. Zeolites reversibly bind small molecules such as oxygen or nitric oxide; they possess size and shape selectivity, the possibility of metalloenzyme mimicry, and immunomodulatory activity. These properties make them interesting for pharmaceutical industry and(More)
The aims of this study were to assess the expression of protein products of c-myc, erbB-2, p53 and nm23-H1 gene in benign and malignant breast lesions, to estimate their possible coexpression and to correlate the results of immunohistochemical analysis with various clinicopathologic parameters. The method used was the immunohistochemical detection of the(More)
Natural silicate materials, including zeolite clinoptilolite, have been shown to exhibit diverse biological activities and have been used successfully as a vaccine adjuvant and for the treatment of diarrhea. We report a novel use of finely ground clinoptilolite as a potential adjuvant in anticancer therapy. Clinoptilolite treatment of mice and dogs(More)
We examined 36 cases of human sporadic colon carcinoma and corresponding normal tissue samples to evaluate loss of heterozygosity at the APC and DCC tumor suppressor genes loci using restriction fragment length polymorphism polymerase chain reaction and variable nucleotide tandem repeat analysis. Observed informativity was 83% for APC and 75% for DCC. DNA(More)
Two hundred eight cervical specimens from two groups of subjects, 165 nonpregnant women and 53 pregnant women with cervical intraepithelial neoplasia (CIN) of grades I to III, were positive by PCR analyses for human papillomaviruses (HPVs), adeno-associated virus type 2 (AAV 2), and human cytomegalovirus (HCMV) in 67, 6, and 4.1% of the cases, respectively.(More)
OBJECTIVE To investigate the consequences of IGF proteins dysfunction in development of endometrial adenocarcinomas. METHODS The expression of IGF 2 and IGF 1R was correlated with the expression of IGF 2R and apoptosis rate in 59 human endometrial adenocarcinomas, 10 endometrial hyperplasias and 7 normal tissues. The presence of mutations in the IGF 2R(More)
Data are presented onp53 protein presence in human oligodendrogliomas whose progress from low grade to anaplastic oligodendroglioma can be followed. Expression was evaluated by formalin-fixed paraffin-embedded section immunohistochemistry, using monoclonal PAb 1801 antibody. The frequency ofp53 protein accumulation is related to the stage of tumor(More)
