To improve nanoliposomal-doxorubicin (DoxNL) delivery in tumor cells using liposome membrane-incorporated short-chain sphingolipids (SCS) with selective membrane-permeabilizing properties. DoxNL bilayers contained synthetic short-chain derivatives of known membrane microdomain-forming sphingolipids; C8-glucosylceramide (C8-GluCer), C8-galactosylceramide(More)
BACKGROUND Phospholipase D (PLD) hydrolyzes phospholipids to generate phosphatidic acid (PA) and a free headgroup. PLDs occur as both intracellular and secreted forms; the latter can act as potent virulence factors. Exogenous PLD has growth-factor-like properties, in that it induces proto-oncogene transcription, mitogenesis and cytoskeletal changes in(More)
Diacylglycerol kinases (DGKs) metabolize diacylglycerol to phosphatidic acid. In T lymphocytes, DGKa acts as a negative regulator of TCR signaling by decreasing diacylglycerol levels and inducing anergy. In this study, we show that upon costimulation of the TCR with CD28 or signaling lymphocyte activation molecule (SLAM), DGKa, but not DGKz, exits from the(More)
Our improved understanding of the molecular processes that determine cellular sensitivity to ionizing radiation has accelerated the identification of new targets for intervention. Indeed, novel agents have become available for combined clinical use to overcome radioresistance and increase the therapeutic ratio of radiotherapy. Synthetic alkyl-phospholipid(More)
Alkyl-lysophospholipids have been shown to possess antitu-moral activity in animal and in human tumors. Among them, racemic 1-O-Å " tadecyl-2-O-methylglycero-3-phosphocholine (ET-18-OCH3) had an antimetastatic effect in experimental tu mors. We investigated the effect of ET-18-OCH3 on invasion of MO4 mouse fibrosarcoma cells and on cellular activities(More)
