PolyADP-ribosylation is a transient posttranslational modification of proteins, mainly catalyzed by poly(ADP-ribose)polymerase-1 (PARP-1). This highly conserved nuclear protein is activated rapidly in response to DNA nick formation and promotes a fast DNA repair. Here, we examine a possible association between polyADP-ribosylation and the activity of(More)
Malignant melanoma cells express the vitamin D receptor (VDR). However, some melanoma cell lines fail to respond to the antiproliferative effects of 1,25-dihydroxyvitamin D3 (1,25(OH)2D3). We reported previously that out of seven melanoma cell lines analyzed, three cell lines (MeWo, SK-Mel28, SM) respond to the antiproliferative effects of 1,25(OH)2D3,(More)
The transformed clonal isolates of Indian muntjac diploid cells by a mouse sarcoma virus, 43-2XV, were tested for tumorigenicity in athymic nude mice. In spite of the indistinguishable transformed morphology, the tumorigenicity exhibited four different patterns: (a) no tumor formation; (b) slowly growing regressive tumor formation; (c) rapidly growing(More)
