Sex hormones reduce NNK detoxification through inhibition of short-chain dehydrogenases/reductases and aldo-keto reductases in vitro.

Sex hormones reduce NNK detoxification through inhibition of short-chain dehydrogenases/reductases and aldo-keto reductases in vitro. Chem Biol Interact. 2017 Feb 28;: Authors: Stapelfeld C, Maser E Abstract Carbonyl reduction is an important metabolic pathway for endogenous and xenobiotic substances. The tobacco specific nitrosamine 4-(methylnitrosamino)-1-(3-pyridyl)-1-butanone (NNK, nicotine-derived nitrosamine ketone) is classified as carcinogenic to humans (IARC, Group 1) and considered to play the most important role in tobacco-related lung carcinogenesis. Detoxification of NNK through carbonyl reduction is catalyzed by members of the AKR- and the SDR-superfamilies which include AKR1B10, AKR1C1, AKR1C2, AKR1C4, 11β-HSD1 and CBR1. Because some reductases are also involved in steroid metabolism, five different hormones were tested for their inhibitory effect on NNK carbonyl reduction. Two of those hormones were estrogens (estradiol and ethinylestradiol), another two hormones belong to the gestagen group (progesterone and drospirenone) and the last tested hormone was an androgen (testosterone). Furthermore, one of the estrogens (ethinylestradiol) and one of the gestagens (drospirenone) are synthetic hormones, used as hormonal contraceptives. Five of six NNK reducing enzymes (AKR1B10, AKR1C1, AKR1C2, AKR1C4 and 11β-HSD1) were significantly inhibited by the tested sex hormones. Only NNK reduction catalyzed by CBR1 was not significantly impaire...

Propofol suppresses the progression of non‑small cell lung cancer via downregulation of the miR‑21‑5p/MAPK10 axis. Oncol Rep. 2020 May 21;: Authors: Wu X, Li X, Xu G Abstract Non‑small cell lung cancer (NSCLC) accounts for>80% of lung cancer cases and is the leading cause of cancer‑associated mortality worldwide. Propofol is an anesthetic drug frequently used during tumor resection. It is also known to exert inhibitory effects on cancer. Although the role of propofol in NSCLC has been reported, its underlying mechanisms remain unknown. The present study aimed therefore to investigate the m...

Knockdown of ubiquitin‑specific protease 51 attenuates cisplatin resistance in lung cancer through ubiquitination of zinc‑finger E‑box binding homeobox 1. Mol Med Rep. 2020 May 27;: Authors: Zhou F, Du C, Xu D, Lu J, Zhou L, Wu C, Wu B, Huang J Abstract Lung cancer is a devastating cancer with high morbidity and mortality. Ubiquitin‑specific protease (USP) is a type of deubiquitinating enzyme (DUB) that has been implicated in numerous cancers, including colorectal, myeloma and breast. In the present study, the expression of USP51 was determined in the lung cancer cell line A549 and cisplatin (a...

Effect of AGER on the biological behavior of non‑small cell lung cancer H1299 cells. Mol Med Rep. 2020 May 22;: Authors: Wang Q, Zhu W, Xiao G, Ding M, Chang J, Liao H Abstract Advanced glycosylation end-product specific receptor (AGER) is a multi-ligand cell surface receptor abnormally expressed in lung cancer, and is a member of the immunoglobulin superfamily. Therefore, this study aimed to explore the effect of AGER on the biological behavior of non‑small cell lung cancer (NSCLC) H1299 cell line. A microarray‑based gene expression profiling analysis of the GSE27262 dataset from the Gene Expres...

We examined 329 patients from February 2002 to July 2013. There were 131 MPM cases with ADA levels of 32.29 IU/L; 117 LC cases with ADA levels of 21.12 IU/L; 54 benign disease cases with ADA levels of 20.98 IU/L. A significant difference existed in pleural effusion ADA levels between MPM and benign disease patients. Pleural effusion ADA levels were significantly higher in MPM patients.
