PURPOSE To explore the possibility of stathmin as an effective therapeutic target and to evaluate the synergistic combination of stathmin RNAi and the antimicrotubule agents paclitaxel and vincristine to retinoblastoma Y79 cells. METHODS RNAi-mediated specific inhibition of stathmin expression in Y79 cells was shown by real-time quantitative RT-PCR(More)
PURPOSE The molecular markers cluster of differentiation (CD)24, CD44, adenosine tri-phosphate (ATP) binding cassette protein G2 (ABCG2), and epithelial cell adhesion molecule (EpCAM) are widely used, individually or in combination, to characterize some types of cancer stem cells. In this study we characterized the EpCAM+ retinoblastoma (RB) cells for their(More)
AIM OF THE STUDY The aerial parts of Pamburus missionis (Wight) Swingle (Rutaceae) are traditionally used in the treatment of swelling, chronic rheumatism, paralysis, and puerperal diseases.The aim of this work was to investigate the chemical composition and antibacterial activity of essential oil of Pamburus missionis against different bacterial strains.(More)
To develop a suitable formulation with high entrapment efficiency, etoposide-loaded poly(lactide-co-glycolide) nanoparticles (NPs) were formulated by single emulsion-solvent evaporation method by changing different formulation parameters such as drug loading, choice of organic solvent and percentage of emulsifier polyvinyl alcohol. The NPs showed higher(More)
A novel carboxylic acid derivative of monoacetylmorphine (MAM-COOH) was synthesized and conjugated with bovine serum albumin (BSA) for generating polyclonal antibodies against the target molecule heroin and its major metabolites. The conjugate was characterized by fluorescence spectroscopy, polyacrylamide gel electrophoresis, and mass spectrometry to(More)
OBJECTIVE To evaluate the antibacterial and antioxidant activity of methanol extract of Evolvulus nummularius (L) L. MATERIALS AND METHODS Disc diffusion and broth serial dilution tests were used to determine the antibacterial activity of the methanol extract against two Gram-positive bacterial strains (Bacillus subtilus NCIM 2718, Staphylococcus aureus(More)
The nuclear cycle among several diverse genetic stocks of Zea mays root meristem cells was compared and it was found that there were no significant differences among the nuclear cycle durations and its component phases. The durations of various periods of their mitotic cycles were studied by autoradiography of cells pulse-labelled with tritiated thymidine(More)
Unfortunately section 2.13 was not included in the paper. The missing section is given below. 2.13 cDNA Microarray analysis For microarray analysis, cells were seeded in 6-well plates (Corning, NY, USA) at 1×10 6 cells per well, and after 24 h, they were then treated with (0.0005 μg/ml) the drug either as a solution or encapsulated in nanoparticles for 5(More)
Cells sense external mechanical stimulus and respond to it through mechanotransduction mechanism. Fluid shear stress (FSS) has been found to be an important element among the mechanical stimuli. Recent advancements in microfluidics made mechanotransduction studies possible in near physiological conditions using microfluidic devices. FSS on human cells(More)
