OBJECTIVE To observe whether there is constitutive activation of nuclear transcription factor kappaB (NF-kappaB) and its effect on proliferation and apoptosis of human gastric cancer cell lines. METHODS Nuclear/cytoplasmic protein expression of NF-kappaB was analyzed by Western blot in four different gastric cancer cell lines. Trans AM(TM) NF-kappaB p65(More)
AIM To clone the cDNA of UGT1A9 from a Chinese human liver and establish the Chinese hamster lung (CHL) cell line expressing human UGT1A9. METHODS cDNA of UGT1 A9 was transcripted from mRNA by reverse transcriptase-ploymerase chain reaction, and was cloned into the pGEM-T vector which was amplified in the host bacteric E.Coli DH5(alpha). The inserted(More)
The human FL cell line contains very low levels of constitutive AHH activity, but it could be greatly induced by NE, beta-NF and 3-MC, and induced slightly by PB. When two different types of inducer, for example, 3-MC and PB or 3-MC and NE were given in combination, an additive inductive effect was not observed. Both the constitutive and induced AHH in FL(More)
Previous studies have suggested that cyclooxygenase-2 (COX-2) over-expression is associated with angiogenesis in gastric cancer. However, the relationship between COX-2 and lymphangiogenesis is still unclear. The aim of this study was to determine the relationship between COX-2 expression and lymphangiogenic factor, vascular endothelial growth factor-C(More)
AIM To investigate the stereoselective metabolism of propafenone (PPF) by human liver CYP3A4. METHODS A chiral and an achiral HPLC were combined to determine the enantiomer of PPF in S9 incubates prepared from transgenic Chinese hamster CHL cells lines expressing CYP3A4. The time-dependent study was performed using individual enantiomer or racemate at low(More)
ADP-ribosyl transferase (ADPRT) is a DNA-dependent chromatin-associated enzyme which covalently attaches ADP-ribose moieties derived from NAD+ to protein acceptors to form poly(ADP-ribose). ADPRT activity is strongly stimulated by breaks in DNA, and it is suggested that its activity is required for efficient DNA excision repair. In this paper, a(More)
Aqueous extract prepared from garlic bulbs markedly suppressed the mutagenesis in both E. coli WP2 trp- and E. coli WP2 trp- uvrA- induced by 4-nitroquinoline 1-oxide (4NQO), but not that induced by UV. Cellular toxicity, inhibition of the expression of the Trp+ phenotype and delay of the first cell division after 4NQO treatment were not observed in the(More)
Concentration dependency of stereoselective N-depropylation metabolism of propafenone was studied by using transgenic cell line expressing human CYP1A2. Enantiomers of propafenone and N-depropylpropafenone were separated and assayed simultaneously by RP-HPLC with precolumn GITC chiral derivatization. The experimental results showed that CYP1A2 was involved(More)
NAD is the substrate of a novel chromatin-associated enzyme-ADP-ribosyl transferase (ADPRT). In this study, the cell-cycle dependent change in cellular NAD content was observed in a line of human amnion FL cells. It was found that the cellular NAD content of FL cells was highest in G1 and lowest in S/G2-G2. 3AB, a potent ADPRT inhibitor, can inhibit the(More)

An alkaloid and a quassinoid were isolated from the fruit of Brucea javanica (L.) Merr, and were identified as 4-ethoxycarbonyl-2-quinolone (1) and bruceine I (2). Compound 1 was found from natural resource for the first time. The structure of the new compound 2 was elucidated on the basis of spectral data and chemical evidence. Three well known compounds(More)
