The X-ray crystal structure of Cowpea chlorotic mottle bromovirus (CCMV) revealed a unique tubular structure formed by the interaction of the N-termini from six coat protein subunits at each three-fold axis of the assembled virion. This structure, termed the beta-hexamer, consists of six short beta-strands. The beta-hexamer was postulated to play a critical(More)
We previously demonstrated that 5,7-dihy-droxy-8-nitrochrysin (NOC), a novel synthetic chrysin analog, preferentially inhibits HER-2/neu-overexpressing MDA-MB-453 breast cancer cell growth by inducing apop-tosis; however, the precise molecular mechanism was unclear. In this study, we demonstrated that NOC significantly induces apoptosis of MDA-MB-453 cells(More)
