In this study, we attempt to target Arginine auxotrophy in glioblastoma multiforme (GBM) cells using a pegylated recombinant human Arginase I cobalt [HuArgI (Co)-PEG5000]. We tested and characterized the activity of HuArgI (Co)-PEG5000 on a panel of 9 GBM cell lines and on human fetal glial cells (SVG-p12). HuArgI (Co)-PEG5000 was cytotoxic to all GBM cells(More)
In this study, we attempt to target both the urokinase plasminogen activator and the mitogen-activated protein kinase pathway in acute myeloid leukemia (AML) cell lines and primary AML blasts using PrAgU2/LF, a urokinase-activated anthrax lethal toxin. PrAgU2/LF was cytotoxic to five out of nine AML cell lines. Cytotoxicity of PrAgU2/LF appeared to be(More)
