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)
We report a white female infant with typical features of Coffin-Siris syndrome including thick eyebrows, flat nasal bridge, anteverted, wide nose tip, generalised hypertrichosis, scalp hypotrichosis, absence of the fifth fingernails and toenails, absence of the distal phalanges of the fifth fingers and of the second to fifth toes, small patellae, inguinal(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)
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)
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)
