144 views | Jun 26 2022

Lendel Correia da Costa et al. demonstrated that KRAB repressor protein was crucial to reactivation resistance phenotype. [Read the Full Post]

Histone Deacetylase Inhibitors Counteract CGRP Signaling and Pronociceptive Sensitization in a Rat Model of Medication Overuse Headache

117 views | Jun 26 2022

Matteo Urru et al. provided evidence for a key role of HDACs and epigenetics in MOH pathogenesis, highlighting the therapeutic potential of HDAC inhibition in the prevention of migraine chronification. [Read the Full Post]

Local ablation of gastric cancer by reconstituted apolipoprotein B lipoparticles carrying epigenetic drugs

909 views | Aug 03 2021

Chia-Lung Yang et al. established rABL-based nanoparticles embedded epigenetic inhibitors for local treatment of gastric cancer, which had good therapeutic effects but do not cause severe side effects. [Read the Full Post]

High-Throughput Mechanistic Screening of Epigenetic Compounds for the Potential Treatment of Meningiomas

928 views | Aug 02 2021

Philip D Tatman et al. suggested an important role of HDACs in meningioma biology and as a targetable mechanism. [Read the Full Post]

Histone Deacetylase Inhibition Prevents the Growth of Primary and Metastatic Osteosarcoma

929 views | Jul 07 2020

Jeremy J McGuire et al. provided rationale for clinical trials in osteosarcoma patients using the approved therapies panobinostat or romidepsin. [Read the Full Post]

Combination BET Family Protein and HDAC Inhibition Synergistically Elicits Chondrosarcoma Cell Apoptosis Through RAD51-Related DNA Damage Repair

771 views | Jul 06 2020

Songwei Huan et al. disclosed that BET and HDAC inhibition synergistically inhibited cell growth and induced cell apoptosis through a mechanism that involved the suppression of RAD51-related HR DNA repair in chondrosarcoma cells. [Read the Full Post]

A simple and cost-saving phenotypic drug susceptibility testing of HIV-1

1440 views | Jul 05 2018

Weng Y et al. provided a useful tool for interpreting meaningful genotypic mutations and guiding tailored antiviral treatment of HIV/AIDS in clinical practice. [Read the Full Post]

Dissecting the molecular mechanisms that impair stress granule formation in aging cells

1151 views | Jul 04 2018

Moujaber O et al. demonstrated that the loss of CReP correlated with the aging-related hyperphosphorylation of eIF2α. Together, we have identified significant changes in the stress response of aging cells and provide mechanistic insights. Based on our work, we propose that the decline in SG formation can provide a new biomarker to evaluate cellular aging. [Read the Full Post]

HMGB1-mediated autophagy decreases sensitivity to oxymatrine in SW982 human synovial sarcoma cells

1246 views | May 13 2018

Cai Y et al. showed that combining OMT with an inhibitor of autophagy or HMGB1 may make OMT more effective in the treatment of human synovial sarcoma. [Read the Full Post]

Solitary inhibition of the breast cancer resistance protein (BCRP) efflux transporter results in a clinically significant drug-drug interaction with rosuvastatin by causing up to a two-fold increase in statin exposure

2509 views | Feb 25 2017

Elsby R, et al.'s result shows that solitary inhibition of the intestinal BCRP transporter can result in clinically significant DDIs with rosuvastatin, causing up to a maximum 2-fold increase in exposure, which may warrant statin dose adjustment in clinical practice [Read the Full Post]
