PURPOSE Quantitative methylation-specific tests suggest that not all cells in a glioblastoma with detectable promoter methylation of the O6-methylguanine DNA methyltransferase (MGMT) gene carry a methylated MGMT allele. This observation may indicate cell subpopulations with distinct MGMT status, raising the question of the clinically relevant cutoff of MGMT(More)
Nucleoside diphosphate kinase (NDPK/nm23) ATP/GDP phosphotransferase activity and serine autophosphorylation is inhibited by N6-mbcAMP, 8-ClcAMP and 8-BrcAMP. Inhibition of the enzymatic activity largely depends on the concentration of ATP and becomes significant at ATP concentrations up to 0.5 mM and at effector concentrations measured in C6 cells(More)
N6-O'2-dibutyryl cAMP (dbcAMP), N6-monobutyryl cAMP (N6-mbcAMP), 8-Chloro cAMP (ClcAMP), and O'2-monobutyryl cAMP (O'2-mbcAMP) were used to study glial fibrillary acidic protein (GFAP) induction in rat C6 glioma. With the exception of O'2-mbcAMP, these cAMP analogs induced GFAP after stimulation of cells with a concentration of 0.5-1 mM. Only dbcAMP and(More)
