Although mTOR (mammalian target of rapamycin) activation is frequently observed in acute myeloid leukemia (AML) patients, the precise function and the downstream targets of mTOR are poorly understood. Here we revealed that PFKFB3, but not PFKFB1, PFKFB2 nor PFKFB4 was a novel downstream substrate of mTOR signaling pathway as PFKFB3 level was augmented after(More)
The hepatic and renal toxicity associated with hydrazine treatment has been linked to free radical damage resulting from oxidative metabolism by cytochrome P4502E1 (CYP2E1). Despite this association, there has been little characterization of the effects of hydrazine treatment on the expression of hepatic and renal CYP2E1 or glutathione-S-transferase-alpha(More)
OBJECTIVE The therapeutic use of thiazolidinediones (TZDs) causes unwanted hematological side effects, although the underlying mechanisms of these effects are poorly understood. This study tests the hypothesis that rosiglitazone impairs the maintenance and differentiation of hematopoietic stem/progenitor cells, which ultimately leads to hematological(More)
