Optimization of transfection of green fluorescent protein in pursuing mesenchymal stem cells in vivo
(Turkish Society of Hematology, 2008)
Objective: Green Fluorescent Protein (GFP) has been used as a marker of gene expression and a single cell marker in living organisms in cell biology studies. The important areas that GFP is used are expression levels of ...
Upregulation of multi drug resistance genes in doxorubicin resistant human acute myelogeneous leukemia cells and reversal of the resistance
(Taylor & Francis, 2007-12)
The major problem in the treatment of acute myeloid leukemia (AML) patients results from multidrug resistance to administered anticancer agents. Drug resistance proteins, MDR1 and MRP1, which work as drug efflux pumps, can ...
Roles of ceramide synthase and ceramide clearence genes in nilotinib-induced cell death in chronic myeloidleukemia cells
(Informa Healthcare, 2011-08)
In this study, we aimed to increase the sensitivity of human K562 and Meg-01 chronic myeloid leukemia (CML) cells to nilotinib by targeting bioactive sphingolipids, in addition to investigating the roles of ceramide ...
Effect of cobalt-60 (γ radiation) on multidrug-resistant multiple myeloma cell lines
(Portland Press, 2011-07)
Emergence of resistance to chemotherapy and radiotherapy is a major obstacle for the successful treatment of MM (multiple myeloma). Prednisone, vincristine and melphalan are commonly used chemotherapeutic agents for the ...
A novel mechanism of dasatinib-induced apoptosis in chronic myeloid leukemia; Ceramide synthase and ceramide clearance genes
Sphingolipids are bioeffector molecules that control various aspects of cell growth, proliferation, apoptosis, and drug resistance. Ceramides, the central molecule of sphingolipid metabolism, are inducer of apoptosis and ...
Proteasome inhibitor bortezomib increases radiation sensitivity in androgen independent human prostate cancer cells
Objectives: To investigate the effects of a strong proteasome inhibitor, bortezomib alone or in combination with radiotherapy on androgen-independent DU145 human prostate cancer cells. Proteasomes play important roles in ...
