Iridium(III) coordination of N(6) modified adenine derivatives with aminoacid chains. J Inorg Biochem. 2020 Jan 18;205:111000 Authors: García-Raso A, Terrón A, Ortega-Castro J, Barceló-Oliver M, Lorenzo J, Rodríguez-Calado S, Franconetti A, Frontera A, Vázquez-López EM, Fiol JJ Abstract In this manuscript we report the preparation of three N6-aminoacid-adenine-derivatives: N-(7H-purin-6-yl)glycine·0.5H2O (N6-GlyAde), N-(7H-purin-6-yl)-β-alanine·1.5H2O (N6-β-AlaAde) and N-(7H-purin-6-yl)-γ-aminobutyric·2H2O (N6-GabaAde) and the synthesis and X-ray characterization of three Ir(III) NAMI-A derivatives (NAMI-A is [imidazoleH][trans-RuIIICl4(DMSO-κS)(imidazole)]) [trans-IrIIICl4(DMSO-κS)(N3-H)-(7H-purin-6-yl)glycine-κN9] (1), [trans-IrIIICl4(DMSO-κS)(N3-H)-(7H-purin-6-yl)-β-alanine-κN9] hydrate (2) and [trans-IrIIICl4(DMSO-κS)(N3-H)-(7H-purin-6-yl)-γ-aminobutyryl-κN9] (3). In all complexes the metal center shows octahedral geometry with coordination to four chlorido ligands and one S coordinated dimethylsulfoxide (DMSO-κS). The coordination sphere of the metal is completed by the modified adenine molecule which is bound via N(9) and protonated at N(3). In two complexes the importance of lone pair (lp)-π interactions involving the adenine ring have been studied using density functional theory (DFT) calculations and the Ba...

Abstract Gynaecologic and breast cancers share some similarities at the molecular level. The aims of our study are to highlight the similarities and differences about IDO1, an important immune-related gene in female cancers. The NGS data from TCGA of cervical squamous cell carcinoma (CESC), ovarian serous cystadenocarcinoma (OV), uterine corpus endometrial carcinoma (UCEC), uterine carcinosarcoma (UCS) and breast invasive carcinoma (BRCA) were analysed to identify molecular features, and clinically significant and potential therapeutic targets of IDO1. We found IDO1 was significantly up-regulated in four gynaecolo...

ConclusionThe present literature supports the pre-existing evidence suggesting an association between ovarian cancer and endometriosis and specifically its two histologic subtypes (endometrioid and ovarian clear cell cancer). The most recent population-based epidemiological studies cannot provide a clear association between endometriosis and endometrial, cervical or breast cancer.

In this study, we compared the effects of L. barbarum fruit polysaccharide fractions on the growth of hepatoma cells (SMMC-7721 and HepG2), cervical cancer cells (HeLa), gastric carcinoma cells (SGC-7901), and human breast cancer cells (MCF-7). LBGP-I-3 showed stronger inhibitory effects on MCF-7 cells (cell viability of 48.96%) than SMMC-7721 (cell viability of 78.91%) and HeLa cells (cell viability of 55.94%), and had no effect on HepG2 and SGC-7901 cells. In addition, LBGP-I-3 had no inhibitory effect on normal liver cells (L02, cell viability of 115.58%). Investigation of the underlying mechanism suggested that LBGP-I-...

The objective of the current study was to report a clinical case considered rare in the literature, as well as discuss its implications and peculiarities. This case report describes a 57-year-old patient with lobular carcinoma metastatic to the uterine cervix, >3 years after the termination of the left breast cancer treatment. A literature analysis confirmed that most cases presented with vaginal bleeding or abdominal discomfort, but many were asymptomatic. Common characteristics between the cases were the patient's age, the time period between primary tumor diagnosis and the emergence of metastatic lesions, treatm...

She had previously undergone partial breast excision with axillary lymph node dissection for right breast cancer eleven years earlier and subtotal stomach-preserving pancreatoduodenectomy with Child's reconstruction for ampullary cancer ten years earlier. Gastrointestinal endoscopy showed a stricture due to a bulging submucosal tumor in the mid-thoracic esophagus. The tumo...

Amplified in breast cancer 1 (AIB1) gene, has been reported to be associated with biological malignancy in several cancers. However, the molecular status of the AIB1 gene in cervical cancer and the clinicopathological/prognostic significance of AIB1 expression in chemoradiotherapy (CRT) sensitivity have not been determined. In our present study, we found that the high expression of AIB1 was frequent detected in specimens of cervical cancer patients, and this was significantly correlated with CRT response (P = 0.014), clinical stage (P = 0.003), T status (P = 0.027), N status (P = 0.021), M status (P = 0.015) and progression-free survival (P
