Human breast cancers are known to preferentially metastasize to skeletal sites, however, the mechanisms that mediate the skeletal preference (orthotropism) of specific types of cancers remains poorly understood. There is a significant clinical correlation between the expression of bone sialoprotein (BSP) and skeletal metastasis of breast cancers. Our(More)
The osteolytic bone destruction associated with breast cancer skeletal metastases represents a serious and incurable clinical condition. However, the molecular mechanisms regulating tumor cell expression of factors involved in the generation of osteolytic disease remain elusive. We demonstrated recently that breast cancer cells express the Runx2(More)
Enhancement of skin permeability of anionic diclofenac from non-aqueous vehicle isopropyl myristate (IPM) by ion-pair formation with either alkylamines or benzylamine as model cationic ions was examined in guinea pig dorsal skin. Diclofenac ion flux increased in the presence of these amines due to an increase in solubility. Maximum flux was observed in the(More)
pH-dependency of skin permeability to salicylic acid was examined in excised guinea pig dorsal skin. Permeation followed the pH-partition theory at acidic pH. However, above pH 5.0 the observed permeability coefficients were larger than the estimated values obtained from the ratio of the undissociated forms. These findings are quite different from those(More)
Experiments were performed with mature embryos of four rice mutants for in vitro callus induction and plant regeneration. Different concentrations of 2,4-D and BAP combined, Kn and NAA combined and MET were used to assess their effects on induction of callus, shoot and roots. Given concentrations of 2,4-D with BAP and rice mutants in vitro cultures showed(More)
