The applicability of a new type of anion exchanger, MonoQ HR 5/5, and the Pharmacia-LKB fast protein liquid chromatographic (FPLC) system to the separation of nucleotides is described. The elution characteristics of adenosine-5'-, cytidine-5'-, uridine-5'-, guanosine-5'-mono-, -di- and -triphosphates and inositol-5'-monophosphate reference compounds, and of(More)
5-S-cysteinyldopa is a precursor of pheomelanin. S-100B protein is a low molecular weight, acidic, calcium binding, cytoplasmatic protein. LDH was defined as the most important serum parameter in disseminated melanoma. The aim of the present study was to compare the prognostic values of serum 5-S-Cysteinyldopa, S-100B and LDH concentrations in Stage III-IV(More)
5-S-Cysteinyldopa (5-S-CD) is a precursor of pheomelanin. S-100B protein is a low molecular weight, acidic, calcium binding, cytoplasmic protein. In this study, the concentration changes of serum 5-S-CD and S-100B protein in melanomas of all stages were examined in parallel and patients were monitored during and after treatment. Serum samples were taken(More)
Direct antitumor activity of sea lamprey (Petromyzon marinus) gonadotropin-releasing hormone III (Glp-His-Trp-Ser-His-Asp-Trp-Lys-Pro-Gly-NH(2); lGnRH-III) was described on several tumor cells. To improve the selectivity of antitumor effects without increasing the hormone releasing activity and to enhance the enzymatic stability, lGnRH-III dimers were(More)
5-S-cysteinyldopa is a precursor of melanin. Its serum and urinary level can reflect melanoma progression. In this study the concentration changes of 5-S-CD in melanomas of all stages were examined, and patients were monitored during and after treatment. Serum samples were taken from 479 melanoma patients with different Stages on 1924 occasions, from June(More)
Human serum acid alpha-1-glycoprotein (AGP, orosomucoid) content of healthy individuals and cancer patients was measured, isolated and purified using a protocol of fast and biocompatible sample preparation, ion exchange and dye-ligand affinity chromatographic methods. In comparison to the healthy individuals significantly higher serum AGP levels were found(More)
The relative hydrophobicity of human serum alpha1-antitrypsin (AAT) and alpha1-acid glycoprotein (AGP) in comparison to various reference proteins was determined by hydrophobic interaction chromatography (HIC). Apolar character of glycoproteins was generated using three different cosmotropic salts, ammonium sulfate, sodium sulfate, sodium citrate and(More)
Using a new microanalytical method authors investigated the AGP level in the sera of 41 healthy individuals and 87 patients with and without malignant diseases of gastrointestinal tract verified clinically by other diagnostic (image forming) techniques. It could be stated that serum AGP levels measured in healthy persons were in good agreement with the data(More)
In order to characterize the estrogen receptor (ER)-positive MCF-7 and ER-negative MDA-MB-231 human breast cancer cells and xenografts, their growth kinetic parameters and some biochemical characteristics concerning the receptor status and polyamine metabolism were determined and compared. The doubling times calculated from the growth curves showed higher(More)
BACKGROUND 5-S-cysteinyldopa (5-S-DC) is a precursor of melanin. Its serum and urinary level can reflect melanoma progression. In this study we examined the concentration changes of 5-S-CD in melanomas of different clinical stages and in patients with different symptoms of melanoma, during and after treatment. METHOD Serum samples were taken from 252(More)
