Therapy of cancer metastasis by activation of the inducible nitric oxide synthase.
Houston, United States. In Cancer Metastasis Rev, 1998
Direct evidence for the role of iNOS in metastasis has been provided by our data on transfection of highly metastatic murine K-1735 clone 4 (C4.P) cells which express low levels of iNOS, with a functional iNOS (C4.L8), inactive mutated iNOS (C4.S2), or neomycin resistance (C4.Neo) genes in medium containing 3 mM of the specific iNOS inhibitor NG-L-methyl arginine (NMA).
Activation of nitric oxide synthase gene for inhibition of cancer metastasis.
Houston, United States. In J Leukoc Biol, 1996
To provide direct evidence for the inverse correlation between the production of endogenous NO and the ability of K-1735 cells to produce metastasis in syngeneic mice, highly metastatic clone 4 cells (C4.P), which express low levels of iNOS, were transfected with a functional iNOS (C4.L8), inactive mutated iNOS (C4.S2), or neomycin resistance (C4.Neo) genes in medium containing 3 mM NMA. C4.P, C4.Neo3, and C4.S2.3 cells were highly metastatic, whereas C4.L8.5 cells were not.
