Combinations of anticancer therapies with high efficacy and low toxicities are highly sought after. Therefore, we studied the effect of polo-like kinase 1 (Plk1) inhibitors on prostate cancer cells as a single agent and in combination with histone deacetylase (HDAC) inhibitors valproic acid and vorinostat. IC50s of Plk1 inhibitors BI 2536 and BI 6727 were(More)
The antimicrobial properties of dextrose-encapsulated gold nanoparticles (dGNPs) with average diameters of 25, 60, and 120 nm (± 5) and synthesized by green chemistry principles were investigated against both Gram-negative and Gram-positive bacteria. Studies were performed involving the effect of dGNPs on the growth, morphology, and ultrastructural(More)

Xylose is a natural monosaccharide found in biomass such as straw, pecan shells, cottonseed hulls, and corncobs. Using this monosaccharide, we report the facile, green synthesis and characterization of stable xylose encapsulated gold nanoparticles (Xyl-GNPs) with potent antibacterial activity. Xyl-GNPs were synthesized using the reduction property of xylose(More)
