BACKGROUND Epithelial ovarian cancer (EOC) is the leading cause of gynecologic cancer death in the USA. Recurrence rates are high after front-line therapy and most patients eventually die from platinum (Pt) - resistant disease. Cisplatin resistance is associated with increased nucleotide excision repair (NER), decreased mismatch repair (MMR) and decreased(More)
We have developed a simple NMR-based method to determine the turnover of nucleotides and incorporation into RNA by stable isotope resolved metabolomics (SIRM) in A549 lung cancer cells. This method requires no chemical degradation of the nucleotides or chromatography. During cell growth, the free ribonucleotide pool is rapidly replaced by de novo(More)
Two cyanogenic beta-glucosidases, linustatinase and linamarase, were isolated and purified from flax seeds (Linum ussitatissimum). They catalyze the sequential hydrolysis of linustatin and neolinustatin to yield acetone and methylethyl ketone cyanohydrins, respectively. The purification procedure for linustatinase involved acetone extraction, precipitation(More)
Epithelial ovarian cancer (EOC) is the leading cause of gynecological cancer death in the United States. Cisplatin is a DNA damaging agent initially effective against EOC but limited by resistance. P53 plays a critical role in cellular response to DNA damage and has been implicated in EOC response to platinum chemotherapy. In this study, we examined the(More)
