α-Tomatine, isolated from Lycopersicon esculentum Linn., is a naturally occurring glycoalkaloids in immature green tomatoes. Some reports demonstrated that α-tomatine had various anti-carcinogenic properties. First, the result demonstrated α-tomatine could inhibit TPA-induced the abilities of the adhesion, morphology/actin cytoskeleton arrangement,(More)
INTRODUCTION The chemokine CXCL12, designated stromal cell-derived factor-1 (SDF-1), plays a significant role in many cancer metastases. Previous studies have shown that CXCL12-G801A, a single nucleotide polymorphism (SNP) in the 3' untranslated region, correlates with breast and lung cancer in Iran. The aim of this study was to evaluate the association of(More)
A novel spectrophotometric method for the quantification of urinary xanthurenic acid (XA) is described. The direct acid ferric reduction (DAFR) procedure was used to quantify XA after it was purified by a solid-phase extraction column. The linearity of proposed method extends from 2.5 to 100.0 mg/L. The method is precise, yielding day-to-day CVs for two(More)
