The acquisition of apoptosis resistance is a fundamental event in cancer development. Among the mechanisms used by cancer cells to evade apoptosis is the dysregulation of inhibitor of apoptosis (IAP) proteins. The activity of the IAPs is regulated by endogenous IAP antagonists such as SMAC (also termed DIABLO). Antagonism of IAP proteins by SMAC occurs via(More)
The enzymes in the human de novo purine synthesis pathway were found to form a cellular complex, the purinosome, upon culturing cells in purine-depleted medium (An, S., Kumar R., Sheets, E. D., and Benkovic, S. J. (2008) Science 320, 103-106). Purinosome formation and dissociation were found to be modulated by several factors, including the microtubule(More)
( E)-4-Hydroxynon-2-enal (HNE), an electrophilic bifunctional cytotoxic lipid peroxidation product, forms covalent adducts with nucleophilic side chains of amino acid residues. HNE-derived adducts have been implicated in many pathophysiological processes including atherosclerosis, diabetes, and Alzheimer's disease. Tritium- and deuterium-labeled HNE ( d(More)
Computer simulation has already become an indispensible means for complex system developments, and the multi-agent oriented modeling and simulation is one of the most influential methods. In order to support multi-agent oriented simulation, a distributed platform is designed and developed to support the whole process that includes modeling, deployment and(More)
