Differential involvement of reactive oxygen species and nucleoside transporters in cytotoxicity induced by two adenosine analogues in human prostate cancer cells.

Abstract

BACKGROUND Elevated levels of cellular oxidative stress represent a specific vulnerability of malignant cells and exposure to cytotoxic drugs is known to induce oxidative stress in cancer cells. The effects of two adenosine analogues, 2-chloroadenosine and 2-chlorodeoxyadenosine, were investigated to assess their mechanism of action in prostate cancer cells… (More)
