The pregnane X receptor (PXR/NR1I2) gene is a critical transcriptional regulator of a number of important drug metabolizing enzymes and transporters. This study was undertaken to determine the frequencies of single nucleotide polymorphisms (SNPs) and haplotypes and to detect yet unknown SNPs in the NR1I2 gene in 210 unrelated healthy Han Chinese in(More)
WHAT IS ALREADY KNOWN ABOUT THIS SUBJECT Human pregnane X receptor (PXR/NR1I2) is a key regulator of cytochrome P450 3A4. To date, there are 198 reported SNPs for the human PXR/NR1I2 gene. Some of these SNPs are found to affect the inducing ability of PXR to CYP3A4. WHAT THIS STUDY ADDS This study, for the first time, has investigated the effect of PXR(More)
The pregnane X receptor (PXR/NR1I2) gene is a master regulator for a number of cytochrome P450s (CYPs) and drug transporters. This study aimed to detect the single nucleotide polymorphisms (SNPs) of the PXR gene in Han Chinese (n = 186) and to compare the frequencies of polymorphisms of the PXR gene with those in Caucasian and African Americans reported in(More)
A sensitive assay for the determination of SYUIQ-5, a novel telomerase inhibitor and anti-tumor drug, in rat liver microsomes was developed by using high-performance liquid chromatography with ultraviolet detection. SYUIQ-5 was incubated in vitro with liver microsomes from rats pre-treated with control vehicle, beta-naphthofIavone, phenobarbital, 20%(More)
4-Anilinoquinazolines (e.g. Iressa and Glivec) are a class of epidermal growth factor receptor tyrosine kinase (EGFR-TK) inhibitors widely used to treat non-small cell lung cancer and other tumors. However, low clinical response rate, resistance, and host toxicity of currently available EGFR-TK inhibitors prompt the development of second generation of TK(More)
SYUIQ-5, a novel telomerase inhibitor, has demonstrated antitumor activity in nude mouse studies. The objective of the present study was to examine the metabolism and pharmacokinetics of SYUIQ-5 in rats. The plasma pharmacokinetics of SYUIQ-5 was nonlinear following i.p. administration at 15, 30 and 60 mg/kg. SYUIQ-5 metabolism in rat liver microsomes(More)
