In the human endocrine system many protein hormones including urotensin, glucagon, obestatin, bombesin and secretin, among others, are supplied from amyloidal secretory granules. These granules form part of the so called functional amyloids, which within the whole aggregome appear to be more abundant than formerly believed. Bacterial inclusion bodies (IBs)(More)
We explored whether the combination of lurbinectedin (PM01183) with the antimetabolite gemcitabine could result in a synergistic antitumor effect in pancreatic ductal adenocarcinoma (PDA) mouse models. We also studied the contribution of lurbinectedin to this synergism. This drug presents a dual pharmacological effect that contributes to its in vivo(More)
Mouse colorectal cancer (CRC) models generated by orthotopic microinjection of human CRC cell lines reproduce the pattern of lymphatic, haematological and transcoelomic spread but generate low metastatic efficiency. Our aim was to develop a new strategy that could increase the metastatic efficiency of these models. We used subcutaneous implantation of the(More)
Abstract The effect of thyrotrophin-releasing hormone (TRH) on intracellular free Ca(2+) concentration, [Ca(2+))i, was investigated with the fluorescent dye fura-2 in cell suspensions obtained from 13 human growth hormone-secreting adenomas and 6 adrenocorticotrophin-secreting adenomas. Preoperatively, 9 out of 13 acromegalic patients showed a positive(More)
