Nanoparticles Suitable for BCAA Isolation Can Serve for Use in Magnetic Lipoplex-Based Delivery System for L, I, V, or R-rich Antimicrobial Peptides
This paper investigates the synthesis of paramagnetic nanoparticles, which are able to bind branched chain amino acids (BCAAs)—leucine, valine, and isoleucine and, thus, serve as a tool for their isolation. Further, by ...
Influence of Long-Distance Bicycle Riding on Serum/Urinary Biomarkers of Prostate Cancer
Herein, we present a study focused on the determination of the influence of long-distance (53 km) bicycle riding on levels of chosen biochemical urinary and serum prostate cancer (PCa) biomarkers total prostate-specific ...
Prostate tumor attenuation in the nu/nu murine model due to antisarcosine antibodies in folate targeted liposomes
(Nature Publishing Group, 2016-09-20)
Herein, we describe the preparation of liposomes with folate-targeting properties for the encapsulation of anti-sarcosine antibodies (antisarAbs@LIP) and sarcosine (sar@LIP). The competitive inhibitory effects of exogenously ...
The Zinc-Schiff Base-Novicidin Complex as a Potential Prostate Cancer Therapy
Prostate cancer cells control energy metabolism by chelating intracellular zinc. Thus, zinc delivery has been a popular therapeutic approach for prostate cancer. Here, we propose the use of the membrane-penetrating peptide ...
Sarcosine up-regulates expression of genes involved in cell cycle progression of metastatic models of prostate cancer
The effects of sarcosine on the processes driving prostate cancer (PCa) development remain still unclear. Herein, we show that a supplementation of metastatic PCa cells (androgen independent PC-3 and androgen dependent ...
