Chronic Induction Of Breast Cell Carcinogenesis By Multiple Environmental And Dietary Carcinogens, Lenora Pluchino, Hwa-Chain Robert Wang Apr 2014

Chronic Induction Of Breast Cell Carcinogenesis By Multiple Environmental And Dietary Carcinogens, Lenora Pluchino, Hwa-Chain Robert Wang

Lenora A. Pluchino, Ph.D.

Breast cancer, the most common type of cancer among North American and European women, is mostly sporadic and attributable to long-term exposure to small quantities of multiple carcinogens. To understand how multiple carcinogens act together to induce breast cell carcinogenesis, we investigated the activity of the tobacco carcinogen 4-(methylnitrosamino)-1-(3-pyridyl)-1-butanone (NNK), the environmental carcinogen benzo[a]pyrene (B[a]P), and the dietary carcinogen 2-amino-1-methyl-6- phenylimidazo[4,5-b]pyridine (PhIP). Non-cancerous human breast epithelial MCF10A cells were exposed to NNK, B[a]P, and PhIP sequentially or in combination and then analyzed for the acquisition of cancerous ...


Combining Fk228 And Cisplatin Synergistically Induces Cancer Cell Death And Reduces Clonogenic Survival, Shambhunath Choudhary, Shilpa Sood, Lenora Pluchino, Hwa-Chain Robert Wang Apr 2014

Combining Fk228 And Cisplatin Synergistically Induces Cancer Cell Death And Reduces Clonogenic Survival, Shambhunath Choudhary, Shilpa Sood, Lenora Pluchino, Hwa-Chain Robert Wang

Lenora A. Pluchino, Ph.D.

The purpose of this study was to investigate the effectiveness of FK228 (romidepsin) to increase cisplatin’s ability to induce cell death and reduce clonogenic survival of human urinary bladder cancer cells. Human urinary bladder cancer is the fifth most common cancer in the United States, but long-term, disease-free survival in patients is still suboptimal. Therefore, it is crucial to develop effective chemotherapeutic regimens to decrease the morbidity and mortality of this cancer. FK228, a depsipeptide and histone deacetylase inhibitor, is approved by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration for treatment of T cell lymphoma. However, its therapeutic value ...

Carbohydrate Response Element Binding-Protein Is Activated By Elevated Glucose Levels In The Normal Murine Liver Cell Line Nmuli, Jackson Adams, Daniel G. Peterson Apr 2011

Carbohydrate Response Element Binding-Protein Is Activated By Elevated Glucose Levels In The Normal Murine Liver Cell Line Nmuli, Jackson Adams, Daniel G. Peterson

Daniel G. Peterson

Carbohydrate response element (ChRE) binding protein (ChREBP) is a transcription factor that is regulated by intracellular glucose levels and activates several lipogenic genes including acetyl CoA carboxylase (ACC). Previous studies of the ChREBP system have used both in vivo models as well as isolated primary hepatocytes. Due to the difficulties in isolation and genetic variability of primary cell culture, we propose the use of a normal murine liver cell line (NMuLi) as a convenient alternative to primary isolated hepatocytes. We show that high (25 mM) but not low (0.5 or 5 mM) glucose activates a luciferase reporter driven by ...
