The role of microRNA-195 in developing acquired drug resistance in hepatocellular carcinoma cells was investigated. Expression profiling of miRNAs revealed a limited set of miRNAs with altered expression in drug resistant hepatocellular carcinoma cell line BEL-7402/5-FU compared to its parental BEL-7402 cell line.(More)
Chrysin is one of flavones constituents of Orocylumineicum vent. It has been a hot spot as a potential chemopreventive agent and as a natural molecule with numerous biological activities such as antioxidant, antitumor, antiviral, anti-hypertension, anti-diabetic, antibacterial, and so on in recent years. Because of its poor solubility, small intestinal(More)
β,β-tripyrrin-bridged earring porphyrins were synthesized through Suzuki-Miyaura cross coupling reactions. These porphyrinoids have multiple cavities and can accommodate two or three metal ions per molecule. The structures of the porphyrins have been elucidated by x-ray diffraction analysis, and feature curved π planes. The electronic spectra of the(More)
A series of genistein derivatives was prepared and tested in vitro against leukocythemia (HL-60), colorectal adenocarcinoma (HT-29), and human gastric adenocarcinoma (SGC-7901) cell lines. Among these derivatives, 4′,5-di-n-octoxy-7-gem-difluoromethylenegenistein, 9f, had the strongest activity against HL-60, HT-29, and SGC-7901 cells.
In this paper, the interaction of genistein (GEN) and its four derivatives (GEN1-4) with bovine serum albumin (BSA) were investigated by ultraviolet-visible absorption spectra, fluorescence, synchronous fluorescence, three-dimensional fluorescence spectroscopy, circular dichroism and molecular docking techniques. The experimental results showed that the(More)
Two series of amino acid derivatives containing chrysin were prepared from 7-O-carboxymethyl chrysin (4a) and 7-O-carboxypropyl chrysin (4b) and amino acid methyl esters by treatment with 1-ethyl-3-(3-dimethylaminopropyl)carbodiimide hydrochloride and N-hydroxybenzotriazole as coupling reagents. The anti-proliferative activities of these derivatives in(More)
A series of chrysin salicylate derivatives as potential antitumour agents were synthesised and evaluated their antitumour activities in vitro and in vivo. Most of the compounds exhibited moderate to good activities against MCF-7 cells, HepG2 cells, MGC-803cells and MFC cells. Among them, compound 3f showed the most potent activity against MGC-803 cells and(More)
A series of chrysin benzimidazole derivatives were synthesised and evaluated for their anticancer activity in the search for potential anticancer agents. Among them, compound 18 displayed the most potent anti-proliferative activity against MFC cells with IC50 values of 25.72 ± 3.95 μM. The flow cytometry results displayed that compound 18 induced apoptosis(More)
