Lung cancer is among the most common neoplasms in Russia, the United States, and in Western Europe and is accompanied by changes in the functional activity of many genes. The transcription levels of TIMP3, DAPK1, and AKR1B10 were compared for normal and tumor lung tissues of patients with squamous-cell cancer (SCC) by RT-PCR. A substantial increase in(More)
All-trans-retinoic acid (ATRA) is the main biologically active metabolite of retinol (vitamin A) that is required for the regulation of processes such as embryogenesis, tissue differentiation, proliferation, and others. Multiple alcohol, retinol, and retinaldehyde dehydrogenases (ADHs, RDHs, and RALDHs), as well as aldo-keto reductases (AKRs) catalyze the(More)
Colorectal cancer is one of the most common cancers in the world. Changes in AKR1B1 and AKR1B10 expression levels, whose diagnostic value was previously shown for several other cancer types, were studied in colorectal tumors. These genes encode aldose reductases, members of the aldo-keto reductase superfamily, which comprises enzymes capable to reduce a(More)
