Loss of p16 functional activity leading to disruption of the p16/cyclin-dependent kinase (CDK) 4:cyclin D/retinoblastoma pathway is the most common event in human tumorigenesis, suggesting that compounds with CDK4 kinase inhibitory activity may be useful to regulate cancer cell growth. To identify such inhibitors, the 60 cancer cell lines of the National(More)
A new series of estradiol analogs was synthesized in an attempt to improve on the anticancer activity of 2-methoxyestradiol, a naturally occurring mammalian tubulin polymerization inhibitor. The compounds were evaluated as inhibitors of tubulin polymerization and the binding of [3H]colchicine to tubulin, as well as for in vitro cytotoxicity in human cancer(More)
9-Methoxy-2-methylellipticinium acetate (6), along with the 9-methyl and 9-chloro derivatives (7, and 8, respectively) have shown remarkable selectivities in vitro against the NCI human CNS cancer subpanel. In order to target these types of compounds to the CNS in vivo, a series of 1,2-dihydroellipticines was synthesized.(More)
A series of novel, sterically hindered lipophilic analogs of AG 957 was designed and synthesized as potential protein tyrosine kinase (PTK) inhibitors. The in vitro activity, in vivo anti-leukemia activity, and pharmacology of these PTK inhibitors were studied. Some aspects of the structure-activity relationship associated with the carboxylic acid, phenol(More)
AIM The aim of this ex vivo study was to compare the antibacterial activity of total-etch and self-etch adhesive systems against Streptococcus mutans, Lactobacillus acidophilus, and Actinomyces viscosus through disk diffusion method. MATERIALS AND METHODS The antibacterial effects of Single Bond (SB) and Adper Prompt (AP) and aqueous solution of(More)
