By altering the accessibility of DNA sequences for alkylation or platination, and/or for subsequent repair, topoisomerase II can potentially affect the level of DNA interstrand cross-links induced in cells by bifunctional agents. In this study, we investigated the extent to which inhibition of topoisomerase II activity in a human glioblastoma multiforme(More)
The striatal-enriched phosphatase (STEP) is a component of the NMDA-receptor-mediated excitotoxic signaling pathway, which plays a key role in ischemic brain injury. Using neuronal cultures and a rat model of ischemic stroke, we show that STEP plays an initial role in neuroprotection, during the insult, by disrupting the p38 MAPK pathway. Degradation of(More)
The STriatal-Enriched tyrosine Phosphatase (STEP) is involved in the etiology of several age-associated neurologic disorders linked to oxidative stress and is also known to play a role in neuroprotection by modulating glutamatergic transmission. However, the possible effect of aging on STEP level and activity in the brain is still unclear. In this study,(More)
