There is currently considerable interest in the use of the endogenous oestrogen metabolite, 2-methoxyoestradiol (2-MeOE2) for the treatment and prevention of breast cancer. We have previously shown that sulphamoylation of 2-MeOE2 and related derivatives greatly enhances their ability to inhibit the proliferation of ER+ and ER- breast cancer cells. In this(More)
We have demonstrated that the truncated hepatitis C (HCV) core protein with its C-terminal hydrophobic domains deleted is translocated to the nucleus of transfected cells (22). In this study, intact and truncated core proteins of HCV were transiently expressed in a human hepatoblastoma cell line, HepG2, and their effects on the expression of the(More)
Aurora kinase (AUR) is a well-known mitotic serine/threonine kinase that regulates centromere formation, chromosome segregation, and cytokinesis in eukaryotes. In addition to regulating mitotic events, AUR has been shown to regulate protein dynamics during interphase in animal cells. In contrast, there has been no identification and characterization of(More)
