BACKGROUND Ataxia telangiectasia-mutated (ATM) gene downexpression has been reported in sporadic breast carcinomas (BC); however, the prognostic value and mechanisms of ATM deregulation remain unclear. PATIENTS AND METHODS ATM and miRNAs (miR-26a, miR-26b, miR-203, miR-421, miR-664, miR-576-5p and miR-18a) expression levels were evaluated by quantitative(More)
BACKGROUND AND PURPOSE Cathepsin K (CatK) is a major drug target for the treatment of osteoporosis. Potent active site-directed inhibitors have been developed and showed variable success in clinical trials. These inhibitors block the entire activity of CatK and thus may interfere with other pathways. The present study investigates the antiresorptive effect(More)
We here report the discovery of novel Plasmodium falciparum enoyl-ACP reductase (PfENR) inhibitors as new antimalarial hits through ligand- and structure-based drug design approaches. We performed 2D and 3D QSAR studies on a set of rhodanine analogues using hologram QSAR (HQSAR), comparative molecular field analysis (CoMFA) and comparative molecular(More)
Tuberculosis (TB) still remains one of the most deadly infectious diseases. Mycobacterium tuberculosis thymidine monophosphate kinase (TMPKmt) has emerged as an attractive molecular target for the design of a novel class of anti-TB agents since blocking it will affect the pathways involved in DNA replication. Aiming at shedding some light on structural and(More)
Worldwide, tuberculosis (TB) is the leading cause of death among curable infectious diseases. The emergence of multidrug resistant (MDR) and extensively drug resistant (XDR) TB is a growing global health concern and there is an urgent need for new anti-TB drugs. Enzymes involved in DNA and ATP biosynthesis are potential targets for tuberculostatic drug(More)
The ataxia telangiectasia mutated (ATM) gene encodes a protein associated with DNA damage repair and maintenance of genomic integrity. In women, ATM transcript and protein downregulation have been reported in sporadic breast carcinomas, and the absence of ATM protein expression has been associated with poor prognosis. The aim of this study was to evaluate(More)
Background Estrogen receptor (ER) status has been used as a biomarker in breast carcinomas (BC), allowing the identification of tumors that may respond to ER antagonists or aromatase inhibitors. Two previous studies by our group evaluating gene and miRNA expression profiles in BC samples from Brazilian patients revealed 15 genes and 3 microRNAs as(More)
Background Ataxia telangiectasia mutated (ATM) synthesizes a protein kinase known as a major regulator of DNA damage response. ATM mutations in women have been associated with moderate risk to develop familial Breast Cancer. ATM transcript and protein down-regulation have been reported in sporadic breast carcinomas and the absence of ATM protein expression(More)
