BACKGROUND Eribulin mesilate (eribulin), a non-taxane microtubule dynamics inhibitor, has shown trends towards greater overall survival (OS) compared with progression-free survival in late-stage metastatic breast cancer patients in the clinic. This finding suggests that eribulin may have additional, previously unrecognised antitumour mechanisms beyond its(More)
Tumor cells exhibit two interconvertible modes of cell motility referred to as mesenchymal and amoeboid migration. Mesenchymal mode is characterized by elongated morphology that requires high GTPase Rac activation, whereas amoeboid mode is dependent on actomyosin contractility induced by Rho/Rho-associated protein kinase (ROCK) signaling. While elongated(More)
Using perfused hearts from streptozotocin-induced long-term diabetic rats, we studied the coronary vasoconstrictor effect of the endothelin-1 (ET-1) precursor big ET-1 and also whether this response was modulated by N(epsilon)-(carboxymethyl)lysine (CML; a representative advanced glycation end product that is implicated in the pathogenesis of diabetic(More)
