We investigated the molecular mechanisms of cell death induced by 1-(3-C-ethynyl-beta-D-ribo-pentofuranosyl)cytosine (ECyd, TAS-106), a potent inhibitor of RNA synthesis, using mouse mammary tumor FM3A cells and human fibrosarcoma HT1080 cells. ECyd induced the characteristics of apoptosis on these cells, such as morphological changes, DNA fragmentations(More)
We investigated single nucleotide polymorphisms (SNPs) in uck2 gene encoding metabolic enzyme of 3'-ethynylcytidine (ECyd) which were associated with drug response of ECyd, and the newly synthesized antitumor ribonucleoside analog. We analized that on exon-intron junction and exon region to affect the qualitative alteration of gene product directly in ECyd(More)
The antitumor ribonucleoside analogue 1-(3-C-ethynyl-beta-D-ribo-pentofuranosyl)cytosine (ECyd), synthesized in 1995, has strong antitumor activity. In mouse mammary tumor FM3A cells, ECyd was rapidly phosphorylated to ECyd-triphosphate (ECTP) as the final product, strongly inhibiting RNA synthesis. The ultimate metabolite of ECyd, ECTP, is stable in(More)
We investigated the molecular mechanisms of cell death induced by 1-(3-C-ethynyl-beta-D-ribo-pentofuranosyl)cytosine (ECyd, TAS-106: Figure 1), a potent inhibitor of RNA synthesis, using mouse mammary tumor FM3A cells and human fibrosarcoma HT1080 cells. ECyd induced the characteristics of apoptosis on these cells, such as morphological changes, DNA(More)
The mutagenicity of 2-hydroxylamino-4-nitrotoluene (2HA4NT), 4-hydroxylamino-2-nitrotoluene (4HA2NT), 2-hydroxylamino-6-nitrotoluene (2HA6NT) or 4-acetylamino-2-hydroxylaminotoluene (4AA2HAT) towards Salmonella typhimurium strains TA98 and TA100 was investigated in the absence and presence of uridine-5'-diphosphoglucuronic acid (UDPGA), acetyl CoA or(More)
The effect of ONO-3307 (4-sulfamoyl phenyl-4-guanidinobenzoate methanesulfonate), a new protease inhibitor, was studied on various proteases in vitro and in an experimental thrombosis model in vivo. ONO-3307 competitively inhibited trypsin, thrombin, plasma kallikrein, plasmin, pancreatic kallikrein and chymotrypsin; and their Ki values were 0.048 microM,(More)
