Authors: Huang SX, Fan WY, Wang L, Liu H, Wang X, Zhao H, Jiang WB Abstract Maspin has been identified as a tumor suppressor gene in breast cancer, but the underlying regulatory mechanisms remain unclear. In the present study, maspin pcDNA was transfected into MCF-7 cells. microRNA (miR) microarray and reverse transcription-quantitative polymerase chain reaction was used for analysis; the results demonstrated that maspin may inhibit miR-10b, miR-21 and miR-451 expression in MCF-7 cells. In addition, maspin increased the expression of certain miR-21 target genes (phosphatase and tensin homolog, programmed cell death...

This article reviews the spectrum of activity, the main pharmacokinetic and pharmacodynamic characteristics and the clinical efficacy and safety of ceftolozane-tazobactam in the treatment of HAP/VAP in adult patients.Expert opinion: The results of a randomized clinical trial have demonstrated an efficacy and safety profile of ceftolozane-tazobactam similar to that of its comparator for the treatment of patients with HAP/VAP. Several retrospective studies have shown good efficacy of the drug for the treatment of respiratory infections caused by MDR P. aeruginosa. The use of this drug may be incorporated as a new therapeutic...

In this study, miRNA microarrays and bioinformatics methods were employed to determine the dysregulation of miRNA by IR in HCC cells, and quantitative RT-PCR (qRT-PCR) was applied to valid the miRNA array data. Of all the 2006 miRNAs screened, 32 miRNAs were found up or down regulated between the HepG2/IR cells and its parental cells. Further literature mining revealed that some of these miRNAs may function as oncogenes or tumor suppressors that contribute to tumor progression, recurrence, and metastasis which eventually lead to chemotherapeutic resistance. Interestingly, bioinformatics analysis by Gene Ontology (GO) enric...

VOLUME 289 (2014) PAGES 21473–21489Since the publication of this article, further research has revealed mycoplasma contamination of the cell lines under investigation. In a separate article (Huff, L. M., et al. (2020) Mycoplasma infection mediates sensitivity of multidrug-resistant cell lines to tiopronin: a cautionary tale. J. Med. Chem. 63, 1434–1439), the authors demonstrate that the hypersensitivity of multidrug-resistant cell lines to tiopronin depends on mycoplasma infection. While the reported phenotype data are accurate in this Journal of Biological Chemistry article, the authors wish to add a Correctio...

elegh S, Katona K, Kristóf K Abstract Our objective was to compare the activity ceftazidime-avibactam (C/A) and ceftolozane-tazobactam (C/T) against multidrug (including carbapenem) resistant Pseudomonas aeruginosa clinical isolates collected from six diagnostic centers in Hungary and to reveal the genetic background of their carbapenem resistance.Two hundred and fifty consecutive, non-duplicate, carbapenem-resistant multidrug resistant (MDR) P. aeruginosa isolates were collected in 2017. Minimal inhibitory concentration values of ceftazidime, cefepime, piperacillin/tazobactam, C/A and C/T were determined b...
