Abstract

Hormone therapy is the most commonly used treatment for prostate cancer, but for androgen-independent cancer, few effective treatment methods are available. Therefore, the requirement to develop novel and effective anti-prostate cancer drugs is extremely urgent. Angiogenin has been suggested as a molecular target for prostate cancer treatment; its overexpression contributes to androgen-dependent prostate cancer growth and castration-resistant growth of androgen-independent prostate cancer. The aim of the present study was to investigate whether neamine, a low toxicity angiogenin nuclear translocation inhibitor, has preferential anti-prostate cancer activity compared with cis-platinum (DDP) and the mechanisms involved. Immunofluorescence and MTT assays were used to observe the effect of neamine on the nuclear translocation of angiogenin and cell proliferation, and a PC-3 cell transplanted tumor model was used to investigate the in vivo activity of neamine and DDP. Immunohistochemistry was performed to observe the expression of angiogenin, cluster of differentiation (CD)31 and Ki-67. It was found that neamine blocked nuclear translocation of angiogenin effectively and inhibited angiogenin-induced human umbilical vein endothelial ...Continue Reading

COVID-19

Coronaviruses encompass a large family of viruses that cause the common cold as well as more serious diseases, such as the ongoing outbreak of coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19; formally known as 2019-nCoV). Coronaviruses can spread from animals to humans; symptoms include fever, cough, shortness of breath, and breathing difficulties; in more severe cases, infection can lead to death. This feed covers recent research on COVID-19.
