Proteomic and Mitochondrial Genomic Analyses of Pediatric Brain Tumors.
Miami, United States. In Mol Neurobiol, 25 Nov 2014
Proteins down-regulated in brain tumors compared to controls were heat shock protein 90 kDa beta, BiP; guanine nucleotide binding protein (G protein), beta polypeptide 2-like 1, isoform CRA_d; histone H2B.1; neurofilament, light polypeptide 68 kDa; Annexin I; and RAN.
Human Annexins A1, A2, and A8 as Potential Molecular Targets for Ni(II) Ions.
Warsaw, Poland. In Chem Res Toxicol, 20 Nov 2014
To test if these proteins are potential molecular targets for nickel toxicity we characterized the binding of Ni(II) ions and hydrolysis of peptides Ac-KALTGHLEE-am (A1-1), Ac-TKYSKHDMN-am (A1-2), and Ac-GVGTRHKAL-am (A1-3), from annexin A1, Ac-KMSTVHEIL-am (A2-1) and Ac-SALSGHLET-am (A2-2), from annexin A2, and Ac-VKSSSHFNP-am (A8-1), from annexin A8, using UV-vis and circular dichroism (CD) spectroscopies, potentiometry, isothermal titration calorimetry, high-performance liquid chromatography (HPLC), and electrospray ionization mass spectrometry (ESI-MS).
Correlation of ANXA1 expression with drug resistance and relapse in bladder cancer.
Beijing, China. In Int J Clin Exp Pathol, Dec 2013
OBJECTIVE: To investigate the expression of annexin a1 (ANXA1) in adriamycin-resistant human bladder cancer cell line (pumc-91/ADM) compared with the parental cell line (pumc-91) and its relevance to the drug resistance of bladder cancer, as well as explore the relevance of ANXA1 in recurrent bladder cancer tissues as pertinent to relapse.
New pathways to control inflammatory responses in adipose tissue.
Chicago, United States. In Curr Opin Pharmacol, Aug 2013
Specifically, we discuss evidence on the role of the inflammasome and its downstream products as a potential target for anti-inflammatory strategies as well as T regulatory (Treg) cells and mediators involved in the resolution phase of inflammation such as resolvins, protectins, annexin A1 (ANXA1) and galectins as potential targets for novel agonist therapies.
Resolution of inflammation: mechanisms and opportunity for drug development.
Edinburgh, United Kingdom. In Pharmacol Ther, Aug 2013
Successful resolution requires activation of endogenous programs with switch from production of pro-inflammatory towards pro-resolving molecules, such as specific lipid mediators and annexin A1, and the non-phlogistic elimination of granulocytes by apoptosis with subsequent removal by surrounding macrophages.
