Hyperexpression of p16(INK4a) protein is an early marker of cervical cancer. Hyperexpression of INK4a gene encoding this protein at the level of mRNA and p16(INK4a) was detected in tumor cells of some patients with bladder cancer associated with human papilloma virus-16. However, in contrast to cervical cancer, this phenomenon in urothelial carcinomas does(More)
A female patient with recurrent bladder cancer underwent complex examination. The primary tumor removed in 2004 showed human papillomavirus (HPV) 16 DNA, mRNA corresponding to HPV16 oncogene E7, as well as HPV16 protein E7. The patient is a smoker who has been working at a chemical factory for over 20 years. During tumor recurrence in 2009, there was no DNA(More)
We studied the expression of peroxiredoxin genes (PRDX1, PRDX2, PRDX3, and PRDX6) in human erythroleukemia K652, human breast carcinoma MCF-7, and human ovarian carcinoma SKOV-3 cells during cisplatin resistance development. It was found that drug resistance formation was accompanied by a significant increase in the expression of PRDX1, PRDX2, PRDX3, PRDX6(More)
Novel derivatives of tris(indol-3-yl)methane and tris(indol-3-yl)methylium salts with the alkyl substituents at the N-atoms of the indole rings were synthesized. An easy substitution of indole rings in trisindolylmethanes for other indoles under the action of acids is demonstrated, and the mechanism of substitution is discussed. To obtain(More)
We developed the synthesis of a series of thiophene-fused tetracyclic analogues of the antitumor drug ametantrone. The reactions included nucleophilic substitution of methoxy groups in 4,11-dimethoxyanthra[2,3-b]thiophene-5,10-diones with ethylenediamines, producing the derivatives of 4,11-diaminoanthra[2,3-b]thiophene-5,10-dione in good yields. Several(More)
We developed the synthesis of a series of furan-fused tetracyclic analogues of the antitumor agent ametantrone. The reactions included nucleophilic substitution of propoxy groups in 4,11-dipropoxyanthra[2,3-b]furan-5,10-diones with ethylenediamines, producing the derivatives of 4,11-diaminoanthra[2,3-b]furan-5,10-dione in good yields. Studies of(More)
A series of new 4,11-diaminoanthra[2,3-b]furan-5,10-dione derivatives with different side chains were synthesized. Selected 2-unsubstituted derivatives 11-14 showed high antiproliferative potency on a panel of mammalian tumor cell lines including multidrug resistance variants. Compounds 11-14 utilized multiple mechanisms of cytotoxicity including inhibition(More)
We describe the synthesis of derivatives of 4,11-diaminonaphtho[2,3-f]indole-5,10-dione and their cytotoxicity for human tumor cells that express major determinants of altered anticancer drug response, the efflux pump P-glycoprotein, and non-functional p53. Nucleophilic substitution of methoxy groups in 4,11-dimethoxynaphtho[2,3-f]indole-5,10-dione with(More)
It was found that dinitrosyl iron complexes (DNIC) with thiol-containing ligands (cysteine or glutathione) of concentrations up to 1 mM produce no cytotoxic effect on cultured cells from human milk gland carcinoma (MCF-7). The cytotoxic action on MCF-7 cells was produced by S-nitrosocysteine: at a concentration of 1 mM, it induced the death of 50% cells. A(More)
We studied the cytotoxicity of acadesine (5-aminoimidazole-4-carboxamide-1-β-D-ribofuranoside) for tumor and normal cells of various species and tissue origin. In tumor cells, acadesine triggered non-apoptotic death; the potency of the compound to normal cells was substantially lower. Acadesine was toxic for tumor cells with multidrug resistant phenotypes(More)
