The effect of treatment with D-L-2-difluoromethylornithine (DFMO) plus retinyl acetate (RA) on the promotion stage of 1-methyl-1-nitrosourea (MNU)-induced mammary carcinogenesis was evaluated in female Sprague-Dawley rats. Combined treatment was more effective than single agent treatment in decreasing cancer incidence and multiplicity and in prolonging(More)
High fat consumption has been implicated as a risk factor for breast cancer. Experimental mammary carcinogenesis studies have demonstrated that the effect of high fat consumption is mainly exerted on the postinitiation stage of the disease process. We report data that have recalled in the formulation of a new hypothesis about the effect of dietary fat on(More)
Four ADR1c mutations that occur close to Ser-230 of the Saccharomyces cerevisiae transcriptional activator ADR1 and which greatly enhance the ability of ADR1 to activate ADH2 expression under glucose-repressed conditions have been shown to reduce or eliminate cyclic AMP-dependent protein kinase (cAPK) phosphorylation of Ser-230 in vitro. In addition,(More)
Ferrous iron-promoted reduction of a hindered peroxide bond underlies the antimalarial action of the 1,2,4-trioxane artemisinin and the 1,2,4-trioxolane arterolane. In appropriately designed systems, a 1,2,4-trioxolane ring can serve as a trigger to realize ferrous iron-dependent and parasite-selective drug delivery, both in vitro and in vivo. A(More)
