New dinuclear palladium(II) complexes: Studies of the nucleophilic substitution reactions, DNA/BSA interactions and cytotoxic activity. J Inorg Biochem. 2017 Jul 16;175:67-79 Authors: Ćoćić D, Jovanović S, Nišavić M, Baskić D, Todorović D, Popović S, Bugarčić ŽD, Petrović B Abstract Six new dinuclear Pd(II) complexes, [{Pd(2,2'-bipy)Cl}2(μ-pz)](ClO4)2 (Pd1), [{Pd(dach)Cl}2(μ-pz)](ClO4)2 (Pd2), [{Pd(en)Cl}2(μ-pz)](ClO4)2 (Pd3), [{Pd(2,2'-bipy)Cl}2(μ-4,4'-bipy)](ClO4)2 (Pd4), [{Pd(dach)Cl}2(μ-4,4'-bipy)](ClO4)2 (Pd5) and [{Pd(en)Cl}2(μ-4,4'-bipy)](ClO4)2 (Pd6) (where 2,2'-bipy=2,2'-bipyridyl, pz=pyrazine, dach=trans-(±)-1,2-diaminocyclohexane, en=ethylenediamine, 4,4'-bipy=4,4'-bipyridyl) have been synthesized and characterized by elemental microanalysis, IR, (1)H NMR and MALDI-TOF mass spectrometry. The pKa values of corresponding diaqua complexes were determined by spectrophotometric pH titration. Substitution reactions with thiourea (Tu), l-methionine (l-Met), l-cysteine (l-Cys), l-histidine (l-His) and guanosine-5'-monophosphate (5'-GMP) were studied under the pseudo-first order conditions at pH7.2. Reactions of Pd1 with Tu, l-Met and l-Cys were followed by decomposition of complexes, while structures of dinuclear complexes were preserved during the substitution with nitrogen donors. Interactions with calf-thymus DNA (CT-DNA) were followed by absorption spectroscopy and fluorescence quenching measurements. Al...

In this study, the expression levels of miR-27b-3p were significantly reduced in ESCC clinical tissues and ESCC cell lines (EC97069 and TE-1). Moreover, down-regulated expression of miR-27b-3p was associated with poor cell differentiation, TNM stage and lymph node metastasis. Specially, overexpression of miR-27b-3p significantly suppressed cell proliferation, migration and invasion in vitro using CCK-8 and transwell assays. Targetscan bioinformatics predictions and luciferase reporter assay confirmed that nuclear factor erythroid 2-related factor 2 (NFE2L2, Nrf2) was a direct target gene of miR-27b-3p. Nrf2 expression was ...

Authors: Tao R, Niu WB, Dou PH, Ni SB, Yu YP, Cai LC, Wang XY, Li SY, Zhang C, Luo ZG Abstract Nucleobindin 2 (NUCB-2) is a multifunctional protein that contains several functional domains and is associated with a wide variety of biological processes, such as food intake and energy homeostasis. NUCB-2 has been demonstrated to be associated with worse malignant outcomes and cell migration in breast and prostate cancer. However, to the best of our knowledge, its clinical and biological significance in renal cell carcinoma remains unknown. In the present study, tissue specimens from 68 patients with renal cell carcino...

Abstract BACKGROUND: Esophageal cancer is a common digestive tract tumor that is generally treated with radiotherapy. Poor responses to radiotherapy in most patients generally result in local radiotherapy failure, so it is essential to find new radiosensitizers that can enhance the response of cancer cells to radiotherapy and improve the survival of esophageal cancer patients with radiation resistance. The long non-coding RNA (lncRNA) Rpph1 is highly expressed in human gastric cancer tissues, and represses breast cancer cell proliferation and tumorigenesis. However, the expression of lncRNA Rpph1 in esophageal can...

Abstract Breast and mammary epithelial cells experience different local environments during tissue development and tumorigenesis. Microenvironmental heterogeneity gives rise to distinct cell regulatory states whose identity and importance are just beginning to be appreciated. Cellular states diversify when clonal three-dimensional (3D) spheroids are cultured in basement membrane, and one such state is associated with stress tolerance and poor response to anticancer therapeutics. Here, we found that this state was jointly coordinated by the NRF2 and p53 pathways, which were costabilized by spontaneous oxidative str...

Ebbe Boedtkjer The acidic tumor microenvironment modifies malignant cell behavior. Here, we study consequences of the microenvironment in breast carcinomas. Beginning at carcinogen-based breast cancer induction, we supply either regular or NaHCO3-containing drinking water to female C57BL/6j mice. We evaluate urine and blood acid-base status, tumor metabolism (microdialysis sampling), and tumor pH (pH-sensitive microelectrodes) in vivo. Based on freshly isolated epithelial organoids from breast carcinomas and normal breast tissue, we assess protein expression (immunoblotting, mass spectrometry), intracellular pH (fluo...

AbstractIt has been established that ZFP36 (also known as Tristetraprolin or TTP) promotes mRNA degradation of proteins involved in inflammation, proliferation and tumor invasiveness. In mammary epithelial cellsZFP36 expression is induced by STAT5 activation during lactogenesis, while in breast cancerZFP36 expression is associated with lower grade and better prognosis. Here, we show that the AP-1 transcription factor components, i.e.JUN, JUNB, FOS, FOSB, in addition toDUSP1, EGR1, NR4A1,IER2 andBTG2, behave as a conserved co-regulated group of genes whose expression is associated toZFP36 in cancer cells. In fact, a signifi...
