Mitoxantrone is a potent antitumor drug, widely used in the treatment of various cancers. In the present study, we have investigated and compared the affinity of anticancer drug, mitoxantrone, to EDTA-soluble chromatin (SE-chromatin), DNA and histones employing UV/Vis, fluorescence, CD spectroscopy, gel electrophoresis and equilibrium dialysis techniques.(More)
In the present study, for the first time we have investigated the interaction of anticancer drug mitoxantrone with histone H1 and core histone proteins in solution using fluorescence, UV/Vis, CD spectroscopy and thermal denaturation techniques. The results showed that mitoxantrone reduced the absorbencies of H1 and core histone proteins at 210 nm(More)
Vinorelbine (navelbin) belongs to vinca alkaloid anticancer drugs family with a broad spectrum of selective activity against mitotic microtubules. The present study is the first report demonstrating chromatin components as a novel target for vinorelbine in hepatocytes. The interaction was carried out in solution, employing fluorescence, UV spectroscopy and(More)
OBJECTIVES Mitoxantrone is an anticancer drug widely used in the treatment of various cancers. In the present study the effect of mitoxantrone on chromatin proteins of intact hepatocytes nuclei was investigated and compared with soluble chromatin. MATERIALS AND METHODS UV/Vis spectroscopy, SDS polyacrylamide gel electrophoresis, and western bolting were(More)
Human nerve growth factor a member of the neurotrophin family can be used to treat neurodegenerative diseases. As it has disulfide bonds in its structure, periplasmic expression of it using appropriate signal sequence is beneficial. Therefore, in this work β-nerve growth factor (β-NGF) was expressed in Escherichia coli using pET39b expression vector(More)
