CHNQ, a novel 2-Chloro-1,4-naphthoquinone derivative of quercetin, induces oxidative stress and autophagy both in vitro and in vivo
Enayat, Shabnam; Şeyma Ceyhan, M.; Taşkoparan, Betül; Stefek, Milan; Banerjee, Sreeparna (Elsevier BV, 2016-4)
Quercetin (Qc) shows strong antitumor effects but has limited clinical application due to poor water solubility and bioavailability. In a screening of novel semi-synthetic derivatives of Qc, 3,7-dihydroxy-2-[4-(2-chloro-1,4-naphthoquinone-3-yloxy)-3-hydroxyphenyl]-5-hydroxychromen-4-one (CHNQ) could ameliorate acetic acid induced acute colitis in vivo more efficiently than Qc. Since inflammation contributes to colorectal cancer (CRC), we have hypothesized that CHNQ may have anti-cancer effects. Using CRC ce...
CHFR-associated early G(2)/M checkpoint defects in breast cancer cells
Erson Bensan, Ayşe Elif (Wiley, 2004-01-01)
Cell division is a highly regulated process. Checkpoints can halt cell-cycle progression due to adverse conditions such as misalignment of chromosomes to prevent missegregation. The search for new regulators of the cell cycle revealed the mitotic checkpoint gene CHFR (checkpoint with forkhead-associated and ring finger). CHFR coordinates an early mitotic phase by delaying chromosome condensation in response to a mitotic stress. Because aneuploidy and chromosome instability are common in malignant breast tum...
RanGTP induces an effector gradient of XCTK2 and importin alpha/beta for spindle microtubule cross-linking
Ems-McClung, Stephanie C.; Emch, Mackenzie; Zhang, Stephanie; Mahnoor, Serena; Weaver, Lesley N.; Walczak, Claire E. (Rockefeller University Press, 2020-02-03)
High RanGTP around chromatin is important for governing spindle assembly during meiosis and mitosis by releasing the inhibitory effects of importin alpha/beta Here we examine how the Ran gradient regulates Kinesin-14 function to control spindle organization. We show that Xenopus Kinesin-14, XCTK2, and importin alpha/beta form an effector gradient that is highest at the poles and diminishes toward the chromatin, which is opposite the RanGTP gradient. Importin alpha and beta preferentially inhibit XCTK2 antip...
PFAM catalyzed enantioselective diethylzinc addition to imines
Doğan, Özdemir (2015-01-01)
Chiral amines are important starting materials for the synthesis of biologically important compounds. Enantioselective addition of dialkylzinc reagents to imines is a reliable method for the synthesis of these compounds. Different chiral catalysts were developed and used for this method. Phosphorous based PFAM catalysts were tried for the first time in the enantioselective synthesis of amines by reacting diethylzinc with N-sulfonyl imines and N-diphenylphosphinoyl imines. Chiral amines were isolated with mo...
