The cytotoxic effect of estramustine-phosphate (EMP) and the uptake in tumor tissue were investigated in a rat glioma model in vitro and in vivo. EMP, a combination of nornitrogen mustard and 17beta-estradiol, is a cytotoxic drug which main target is assumed to be the microtubule system. EMP and its metabolite estramustine (EaM) have a demonstrated(More)
To improve the efficacy of therapeutic options in chronic lymphocytic leukemia (CLL) an in vitro system to determine the response of mononuclear blood cells from blood of patients was elaborated. The study combines four approaches, i.e., cell viability, apoptosis rate, differential scanning calorimetry (DSC), and immunoblotting to develop personalized(More)
Estramustine-binding protein (EMBP) is a glycoprotein shown to be expressed in the cytoplasm of astrocytoma cells. Originally, it was found in rat prostatic tissue and described as a secretory protein. Its expression has been demonstrated to positively correlate with the degree of neoplastic transformation in astrocytoma tissue. EMBP has been proposed to be(More)
Expression of interleukin (IL)-10 influences the frequency of rejection events after organ transplantation. Therefore, 70 heart transplant patients were genotyped for three single nucleotide polymorphisms and a microsatellite polymorphism in the promotor region of the IL-10 gene. The promoter region was amplified by polymerase chain reaction and genotyped(More)
Biochemical studies provide evidence that the pathway from visual cortex to the superior colliculus (SC) utilizes glutamate as a neurotransmitter. In the present study, we have used immunocytochemistry, visual cortex lesions, and retrograde tracing to show directly by anatomical methods that glutamate or a closely related analog is contained in(More)
S-(1-Acetoxymethyl)glutathione (GSCH(2)OAc) was synthesized and used as a model for the reaction of glutathione (GSH)-dihaloalkane conjugates with nucleosides and DNA. Previously, S-[1-(N(2)-deoxyguanosinyl)methyl]GSH had been identified as the major adduct formed in the reaction of GSCH(2)OAc with deoxyguanosine. GSCH(2)OAc was incubated with the three(More)
