Inhibition of DNA-PKcs activity re-sensitizes uveal melanoma cells to radio- and chemotherapy

444 views | Sep 03 2020

Bingjie Zhang et al. demonstrated increased DNA double strand break repair as a mechanism of resistance to ionizing radiation and Selumetinib, and identified DNA-PKcs as a promising target for radio-and chemotherapy in UM patients. [Read the Full Post]

Tyrosyl-DNA phosphodiesterase and the repair of 3'-phosphoglycolate-terminated DNA double-strand breaks

0 views | Nov 15 2019

Zhou T et al. indicated this chromosomal hypersensitivity, as well as a small but reproducible enhancement of calicheamicin cytotoxicity following siRNA-mediated TDP1 knockdown, suggests a role for TDP1 in repair of 3'-PG double-strand breaks in vivo. [Read the Full Post]

NU7441 Enhances the Radiosensitivity of Liver Cancer Cells

517 views | Nov 15 2019

Yang C et al. showed that NU7441 inhibited the growth of liver cancer cells, enhanced the radiosensitization of these cancer cells by interfering with the DNA repair and cell cycle checkpoint. These data implicate NU7441 as a potential radiotherapy sensitizer for the treatment of liver cancer. [Read the Full Post]
