Although Kruppel-like factor 5 (KLF5) is a transcription factor that has been implicated in pathways critical to carcinogenesis, controversy persists as to whether it functions as a tumor suppressor or as an oncogene. Here, we describe a novel role for KLF5 in a p53-independent apoptotic pathway. Using RNA-interference technology, we show that cells(More)
Various nitric oxide (NO) regulators [including the NO donor sodium nitroprusside (SNP), the NO scavenger 2-(4-carboxyphenyl)-4,4,5,5-tetramethylimidazoline-1-oxyl-3-oxide (cPTIO), the NO-synthase inhibitor N (G)-nitro-L-Arg-methyl ester (L-NAME), and the SNP analogues sodium nitrite/nitrate and sodium ferrocyanide] were investigated to elucidate the role(More)
AIM To study genetic polymorphism of S-mephenytoin (S-Mep) 4'-hydroxylation in the Chinese population of Han nationality. METHODS The lg metabolic ratio (MR) and lg hydroxylation index (HI) in the urine (0-12 h) after oral administration with 100 mg of racemic Mep tablet were determined by HPLC method in 148 consangeously unrelated native Chinese subjects(More)
