We tested antioxidant responses of the green microalga Pseudokirchneriella subcapitata exposed to different concentrations of the three antibiotics erythromycin (ETM), ciprofloxacin (CPF) and sulfamethoxazole (SMZ). Measurements included the level of lipid peroxidation, the total antioxidative capacity and three major antioxidant mechanisms: the(More)
Tumor Protein p53 (p53), cyclin-dependent kinase inhibitor 1A (p21/WAF1), and murine double minute 2 (MDM2) participate in the regulation of cell growth. Altered expression of these gene products has been found in malignant tumors and has been associated with poor prognosis. Our aim was to investigate the expression of the 3 proteins in hepatocellular(More)
Previous studies have reported conflicting results regarding the impact of neoadjuvant chemotherapy (NAC) on estrogen receptor (ER), progesterone receptor (PR) and human epidermal growth factor receptor 2 (HER2) status in breast cancer. Our aim was to investigate whether NAC induces some selective change in the breast biomarkers. We retrospectively detected(More)
AIM Recent research suggests that nucleophosmin (NPM) may be a prognostic marker in colorectal carcinomas (CRC). We here tested its use to predict the survival of CRC patients. METHODS We investigated NPM expression by immunohistochemistry in histologically normal to malignant colorectal tissues and evaluated its association with clinicopathological(More)
The aim of this study was to evaluate the frequency and prognostic impact of changes in the estrogen (ER), progesterone (PR) and human epidermal growth factor receptor 2 (HER2) status between primary and recurrent/metastatic lesions (RML). We investigated 133 breast cancer patients for ER, PR and HER2 status of primary and RML and their follow-up records.(More)
The toxic effects of different concentrations of Triclosan (TCS) (1-128 μg/L) on Daphnia magna (D. magna) were investigated by acute (48 h) and chronic (21-day) toxicity tests. The response of antioxidase system and Phase I metabolism process of D. magna exposed to TCS were investigated by measuring a series of biomarkers including glutathione S-transferase(More)
OBJECTIVE To evaluate possible prognostic factors regarding regression and relapse of complex atypical hyperplasia (CAH) and well-differentiated endometrioid adenocarcinoma (WDC) treated with conservative treatment. METHODS The retrospective study reviewed clinicopathologic, treatment, regression and relapse data from patients diagnosed with CAH or WDC(More)
In the title compound, C(25)H(19)NO(3), the oxazine ring displays a half-chair conformation. The fused benzene ring is nearly parallel to the naphthyl ring system, the dihedral angle between this benzene ring and the naphthyl system being 8.52 (11)°. The imino group is not involved in hydrogen bonding in the crystal structure.
Deregulation of ubiquitin ligases contribute to the malignant progression of human cancers. Tripartite motif 65 (TRIM65) belongs to E3 ubiquitin ligase and has been implicated in human diseases, but its role and clinical significance remain unknown in hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC). Here, we showed that TRIM65 expression was increased in HCC tissues and(More)
In the title compound, C(15)H(15)NO(4), the quinoline ring system and one of the malonate side chains are essentially coplanar (r.m.s. deviation = 0.0297 Å). The two malonate C-C(=O)-O-CH(3) side chains are oriented at right angles [89.68 (8)°] with respect to each other. The crystal packing is stabilized by weak non-classical inter-molecular C-H⋯O hydrogen(More)
