Cellular processing of platinum anticancer drugs
Cisplatin, carboplatin and oxaliplatin are platinum-based drugs that are widely used in cancer chemotherapy. Platinum–DNA adducts, which are formed following uptake of the drug into the nucleus ofExpand

Basis for recognition of cisplatin-modified DNA by high-mobility-group proteins
The anticancer activity of cis -diamminedichloroplatinum(II) (cisplatin) arises from its ability to damage DNA, with the major adducts formed being intrastrand d(GpG) and d(ApG) crosslinks. TheseExpand

Organic cation transporters are determinants of oxaliplatin cytotoxicity.
Although the platinum-based anticancer drugs cisplatin, carboplatin, and oxaliplatin have similar DNA-binding properties, only oxaliplatin is active against colorectal tumors. The mechanisms for thisExpand

Vesicular Zinc Promotes Presynaptic and Inhibits Postsynaptic Long-Term Potentiation of Mossy Fiber-CA3 Synapse
The presence of zinc in glutamatergic synaptic vesicles of excitatory neurons of mammalian cerebral cortex suggests that zinc might regulate plasticity of synapses formed by these neurons. Long-termExpand

Crystal structure of double-stranded DNA containing the major adduct of the anticancer drug cisplatin
THE success of cisplatin in cancer chemotherapy derives from its ability to crosslink DNA and alter the structure. Most cisplatiná¤-DNA adducts are intrastrand d(GpG) and d(ApG) crosslinks1, whichExpand
