We have studied alterations in glutathione (GSH) levels and glutathione-S-transferase (GST) activity in a series of in vitro derived multidrug resistant and cisplatin resistant sublines of the human lung cancer lines NCI-H69 (small cell), COR-L23 (large cell) and MOR (adenocarcinoma). We have also investigated the effects of ethacrynic acid, a putative(More)
Analysis of the three-dimensional crystal structure of the Dictyostelium myosin motor domain revealed that the myosin head is required to bend at residues Ile-455 and Gly-457 to produce the conformation changes observed in the ternary complexes that resemble the pre- and post-hydrolysis states (Fisher, A. J., Smith, C. A., Thoden, J. B., Smith, R., Sutoh,(More)
Multidrug resistance (MDR), caused by overexpression of either P-glycoprotein or the multidrug resistance protein (MRP), is characterised by a decreased cellular drug accumulation due to an enhanced drug efflux. In this study, we examined the effects of genistein and structurally related (iso)flavonoids on the transport of rhodamine 123 (Rh123) and(More)
We have investigated the effects of H(+)-ATPase inhibitors, bafilomycin A1 and 7-chloro-4-nitro-benz-2-oxa-1,3 diazole (NBD), and the Golgi inhibitor, brefeldin A, on daunorubicin accumulation and doxorubicin intracellular distribution in the non-P-glycoprotein-mediated multidrug-resistant cell line COR-L23/R. This cell line overexpress a 190 kDa protein(More)
Nerve terminals ("synaptosomes") isolated from rat brain hippocampus were loaded with the fluorescent Ca2+ indicator fura-2 and were subjected to depolarization with an elevated K+ concentration in a stopped-flow spectrophotometer to measure the activity of voltage-gated Ca2+ channels in the presynaptic membrane. Three components of Ca2+ influx were seen,(More)
