Poly (I:C), which is a synthetic double-stranded RNA, have significant toxicity on tumor cells. The immobilization of Poly (I:C) onto nanoparticles is important for the fabrication of targeted delivery systems. In this study, different generations of newly synthesized PAMAM dendron-coated magnetic nanoparticles (DcMNP) which can be targeted to the tumor site under magnetic field were efficiently loaded for the first time with Poly (I:C). Different generations of DcMNPs (G(2), G(3), G(4), G(5), G(6), and G(7)) were synthesized. Poly (I:C) activation was achieved in the presence of EDC and 1-methylimidazole. Loading of Poly (I:C) onto DcMNPs was followed by agarose gel electrophoresis. Acidic reaction conditions were found as superior to basic and neutral for binding of Poly (I:C). In addition, having more functional groups at the surface, higher generations (G(7), G(6), and G(5)) of PAMAM DcMNPs were found more suitable as a delivery system for Poly (I:C). Further in vitro and in vivo analyses of Poly (I:C)/PAMAM magnetic nanoparticles may provide new opportunities for the selective targeting and killing of tumor cells.


Collagen-chondroitin sulfate-based PLLA-SAIB-coated rhBMP-2 delivery system for bone repair
Keskin, Dilek; Tezcaner, Ayşen; Hasırcı, Vasıf Nejat (2005-06-01)
Bone morphogenetic proteins (BMPs) are osteoinductive proteins used intensively in clinical investigations involving various bone-related treatments. Owing to their high potential in new bone formation they require local application at the treatment site. For this purpose various controlled delivery systems with BMPs as the excipients have been prepared in recent years. Focusing on this clinical need a disc-shaped BMP carrier was designed as a local delivery system using soluble collagen and chondroitin sul...
Speciation of Selenium in Supplements by High Performance Liquid Chromatography-Inductively Coupled Plasma-Mass Spectrometry
BAKIRDERE, Sezgin; Volkan, Mürvet; Ataman, Osman Yavuz (2015-06-13)
Anion and cation exchange high-performance liquid chromatography (HPLC) combined with inductively coupled plasma-mass spectrometry (ICP-MS) were used for speciation of selenium in supplements. All the parameters in the extraction, separation, and determination procedures were optimized. Recovery studies for the selenium species from the anion and cation exchange columns were performed and there were no analyte losses. Limits of detection for selenium(IV), selenium(VI), Se in selenomethionine, and Se in sele...
PAMAM dendrimer-coated iron oxide nanoparticles: synthesis and characterization of different generations
Khodadust, Rouhollah; Unsoy, Gozde; Yalcin, Serap; Gunduz, Gungor; Gündüz, Ufuk (2013-03-01)
This study focuses on the synthesis and characterization of different generations (G(0)-G(7)) of polyamidoamine (PAMAM) dendrimer-coated magnetic nanoparticles (DcMNPs). In this study, superparamagnetic iron oxide nanoparticles were synthesized by co-precipitation method. The synthesized nanoparticles were modified with aminopropyltrimethoxysilane for dendrimer coating. Aminosilane-modified MNPs were coated with PAMAM dendrimer. The characterization of synthesized nanoparticles was performed by X-ray diffra...

ARID3B (AT-rich interaction domain 3) is a member of the family of ARID proteins, which constitutes evolutionarily conserved transcription factors implicated in normal development, differentiation, cell cycle regulation and chromatin remodeling. In addition, ARID3B has been linked to cellular immortalization, epithelial-mesenchymal transition (EMT) and tumorigenesis. Given the emerging role of ARID3B in tumor development, we examined its expression in primary patient-derived breast cancer samples and breast...

APOBEC3B belongs to a protein family of cytidine deaminases that can insert mutations in DNA and RNA as a result of their ability to deaminate cytidine to uridine. It has been shown that APOBEC3B-catalysed deamination provides a chronic source of DNA damage in breast cancers. We investigated APOBEC3B expression in four drug resistant breast cancer cell lines (Doxorubicin, Etoposide, Paclitaxel and Docetaxel resistant MCF-7 cell lines) using a novel RNA in situ hybridization technology (RNAscope) and compare...
