We previously reported that μ-oxo N,N'-bis(salicylidene)ethylenediamine iron [Fe(Salen)], a magnetic organic compound, has direct anti-tumor activity, and generates heat in an alternating magnetic field (AMF). We showed that Fe(Salen) nanoparticles are useful for combined hyperthermia-chemotherapy of tongue cancer. Here, we have examined the effect of Fe(Salen) on human glioblastoma (GB). Fe(Salen) showed in vitro anti-tumor activity towards several human GB cell lines. It inhibited cell proliferation, and its apoptosis-inducing activity was greater than that of clinically used drugs...

D-Penicillamine (PA), a copper chelator, and one of the recommended drugs for treatment of Wilson disease (WD) has been reported to worsen the symptoms of patients with neurologic presentations. However, the cause of this paradoxical response has not been fully elucidated and requires further investigations. Accordingly, we have studied the in vitro effect of Copper (Cu) and/or PA treatment on human glioblastoma U251 cells as an in vitro model of Cu cytotoxicity. Treatment of U251 cells with either Cu or PA exerted no significant effect on their morphology, viability or ROS level...

Eva-1 homolog A (EVA1A) is a novel lysosome and endoplasmic reticulum-associated protein involved in autophagy and apoptosis. In this study, we constructed a recombinant adenovirus 5-EVA1A vector (Ad5-EVA1A) to overexpress EVA1A in glioblastoma (GBM) cell lines and evaluated its anti-tumor activities in vitro and in vivo. We found that overexpression of EVA1A in three GBM cell lines (U251, U87 and SHG44) resulted in a suppression of tumor cell growth via activation of autophagy and induction of cell apoptosis in a dose- and time-dependent manner...

Dysregulation of microRNAs (miRNAs) is actively involved in the development and progression of glioma. miR-520c was previously found to inhibit glioblastoma cell migration. However, the clinical significance of miR-520c and its biological function in glioma remain largely unknown. In the present study, we found that miR-520c expression in glioma tissues was significantly decreased compared to adjacent non‑cancerous tissues. The low level of miR-520c was prominently correlated with advanced World Health Organization (WHO) grade and decreased overall survival of glioma patients...

Progesterone-induced blocking factor (PIBF) is a progesterone (P4) regulated protein expressed in different types of high proliferative cells including astrocytomas, the most frequent and aggressive brain tumors. It has been shown that PIBF increases the number of human astrocytoma cells. In this work, we evaluated PIBF regulation by P4 and the effects of PIBF on proliferation, migration, and invasion of U87 and U251 cells, both derived from human glioblastomas. PIBF mRNA expression was upregulated by P4 (10 nM) from 12 to 24 h...

α-Synuclein is the major component of Lewy bodies, Lewy neurites, and glial cytoplasmic inclusions. It plays an important role in neurodegenerative diseases such as Parkinson's disease, multiple system atrophy, and other synucleinopathies. However, the pathogenesis and neurodegenerative effects of α-synuclein remain unknown. In this study, we established an α-synuclein and an α-synuclein-EGFP overexpressing U251 cell line. α-Synuclein overexpression increases oxidative stress and alters the cell surface and mitochondrial morphologies...

RATIONALE: Ataxia telangiectasia and Rad3-related (ATR) threonine serine kinase is one of the key elements in orchestrating the DNA damage response (DDR). As such, inhibition of ATR can amplify the effects of chemo- and radiation-therapy, and several ATR inhibitors (ATRi) have already undergone clinical testing in cancer. For more accurate patient selection, monitoring and staging, real-time in vivo imaging of ATR could be invaluable; the development of appropriate imaging agents has remained a major challenge...

Notch pathway was found to be activated in most glioblastomas (GBM), underlining the importance of Notch in formation and recurrence of GBM. In this study, a Notch inhibitory peptide, dominant negative MAML (dnMAML), was conjugated to Elastin-like polypeptide (ELP) for tumor targeted delivery. ELP is a thermally responsive polypeptide that can be actively and passively targeted to the tumor site by localized application of hyperthermia. This complex was further modified with the addition of a cell penetrating peptide, SynB1, for improved cellular uptake and blood-brain barrier penetration...

Transmembrane protein 39A (TMEM39A) belongs to the TMEM39 family. TMEM39A gene is a susceptibility locus for multiple sclerosis. In addition, TMEM39A seems to be implicated in systemic lupus erythematosus. However, any possible involvement of TMEM39A in cancer remains largely unknown. In the present report, we provide evidence that TMEM39A may play a role in brain tumors. Western blotting using an anti-TMEM39A antibody indicated that TMEM39A was overexpressed in glioblastoma cell lines, including U87-MG and U251-MG...

Previous studies indicate that the triterpene glycoside Actein from the herb black cohosh inhibits growth of human breast cancer cells. This study sought to investigate the effects of Actein on glioma cell growth and explore the potential mechanisms. Our results showed that administration of Actein significantly inhibited glioma cell viability in a dose- and time-dependent manner. Actein also increasingly inhibited the colony formation processes in glioma U87 cells and U251 cells. Administration of Actein also induced mitochondria-related apoptosis by increasing expression of pro-apoptotic factors Bax, cleaved caspase-3, cleaved caspase-9 and cleaved poly (ADP-ribose) polymerase 1 (PARP1) as well as decreasing anti-apoptotic Bcl-2 expression in U87 cells and U251 cells...

Some epidemiological studies indicate that mobile phones cause glioblastomas in humans. Since it is known that genomic instability plays a key role in the etiology of cancer, we investigated the effects of the universal mobile telecommunications system radiofrequency (UMTS-RF) signal, which is used in "smart" phones, on micronucleus (MN) formation and other anomalies such as nuclear buds (NBUDs) and nucleoplasmatic bridges (NPBs). MN are formed by structural and numerical aberrations, NBs reflect gene amplification and NPBs are formed from dicentric chromosomes...

Glioma is one of the most common types of brain tumors. DNA damage is closely associated with glioma cell apoptosis induced by X-ray irradiation. Alterations of metabolites in glioma can be detected noninvasively by proton nuclear magnetic resonance (1H NMR) spectroscopy. To noninvasively explore the micro mechanism in X-ray irradiation-induced apoptosis, the relationship between metabolites and DNA damage in glioma cells was investigated. Three glioma cell lines (C6, U87 and U251) were randomly designated as control (0Gy) and treatment groups (1, 5, 10, 15Gy)...

BACKGROUND: As the early detection and total destruction of gliomas are essential for longer survival, we attempted to synthesize a quantum dot (QD) that is capable of recognizing glioma cells for imaging and photodynamic therapy. METHODS: Using a one-pot aqueous approach, near infrared-emitting CdTe was produced. After detection of its physicochemical characteriistics, it was conjugated with RGD. The emission images were observed with confocal microscopy. To test its toxicity, CdTe-RGD at various concentrations was separately added to a human glioma cell line (U251) and a mouse embryo fibroblast cell line (3T3) (control) for incubation in dark conditions...

Dihydroartemisinin(DHA) is the active metabolic derivative of artemisinin. DHA has potential therapeutic effects on glioma but the detailed mechanism is unclear. In this study, we investigated the role and the underlying mechanisms of DHA in its inhibition of glioma cells. U87 cells are wild-type p53 glioblastoma cells and U251 cells contain mutant p53. DHA inhibited the proliferation, migration and invasion of glioma cells in a dose-dependent manner. DHA promoted reactive oxygen species production and activated p53 in two glioma cell lines, U87 and U251...

Glioma is one of the most common tumors in central nervous system. The median life expectancy for glioma patients is only 13-15 months. NIMA-related expressed kinase 2 (NEK2) is a kind of serine-threonine kinases and involves in carcinogenesis and progression of cancer, however, the specific roles in the glioma remains unknown. We found the high expression of NEK2 was positively correlated with deteriorated severity of glioma. Therefore, we sought to investigate the effects of NEK2 on U87 and U251 cells. To explore the expression of NEK2 and alteration of signaling pathway factors, qRT-PCR and Western blot analysis were performed...

Tachyplesin I is a cationic peptide isolated from hemocytes of the horseshoe crab and its anti-tumor activity has been demonstrated in several tumor cells. However, there is limited information providing the global effects and mechanisms of tachyplesin I on glioblastoma multiforme (GBM). Here, by using two complementary proteomic strategies (2D-DIGE and dimethyl isotope labeling-based shotgun proteomics), we explored the effect of tachyplesin I on the proteome of gliomaspheres, a three-dimensional growth model formed by a GBM cell line U251...
