Response of a cell-surface NADH oxidase to the antitumor sulfonylurea N-(4-methylphenylsulfonyl)-N'-(4-chlorophenylurea) (LY181984) modulated by redox.

In previous reports, our laboratory has described a drug-responsive NADH oxidase activity of the external surface of the plasma membrane of HeLa and other cancer cells, but not from normal cells, that was shed into media conditioned by the growth of cancer cells such as HeLa and also into sera of cancer patients. The sulfonylurea-altered activity was found… CONTINUE READING
