The roles of epigenetic modifications of proapoptotic BID and BIM genes in imatinibresistant chronic myeloid leukemia cells
(Taylor & Francis, 2013-07)
In chronic myeloid leukemia (CML), epigenetic modifications such as promoter hypermethylation and inactive histone modification are known mechanisms of drug resistance. In our study, we investigated the roles of promoter ...
Mechanisms responsible for nilotinib resistance in human chronic myeloid leukemia cells and reversal of resistance
(Taylor & Francis, 2013-06)
Multidrug resistance remains a significant obstacle to successful chemotherapy. The ability to determine the possible resistance mechanisms and surmount the resistance is likely to improve chemotherapy. Nilotinib is a very ...
STAT pathway in the regulation of zoledronic acid-induced apoptosis in chronic myeloid leukemia cells
In this study, we aimed to evaluate the cytotoxic and apoptotic effects of zoledronic acid on K562 chronic myeloid leukemia (CML) cells and to examine the roles of STAT genes on zoledronic acid-induced apoptosis. The results ...
miR-17 in imatinib resistance and response to tyrosine kinase inhibitors in chronic myeloid leukemia cells
(Zerbinis Medical Publications, 2013-04)
In this study we examined the expression levels of miR-17 which possesses oncogenic activities through downregulation of CDKN1A, p21 and E2F1 tumor suppressor genes, in imatinib sensitive and resistant chronic myeloid ...
The roles of macromolecules in imatinib resistance of chronic myeloid leukemia cells by Fourier transform infrared spectroscopy
Imatinib is a first generation tyrosine kinase inhibitor, which is used for the treatment of chronic myeloid leukemia. However, resistance to imatinib is an important problem. Different mechanisms have been explained for ...
