The aim of our study was to analyze the serum levels of advanced oxidation protein products (AOPPs) and advanced glycation end products (AGEs), and protein nitrosylation in patients with B-chronic lymphocytic leukemia (B-CLL). AOPPs, AGEs, and S -nitrosylated were increased in B-CLL patients. The...
We evaluated the changes of the tumor markers CEA and CA19.9 as early predictors of progression in metastatic colorectal cancer (mCRC) patients participating in a clinical study and receiving chemotherapy and bevacizumab (Bev). Seventy-two patients had high baseline CEA or CA19.9 serum levels. By...
Peroxiredoxins are thiol-specific antioxidant proteins whose expression is elevated in several cancers. We compared the expression and function of Prdx1 and Prdx6 between the MCF-7 mammary adenocarcinoma cell line and the noncancerous MCF-10A cell line. We found elevated Prdx1 expression in MCF-7...
We studied the specific changes of the secreted protein clusterin and its cytoplasmic precursor regarding colorectal tumorigenesis, using in vitro differentiation of Caco-2 cells. In tumor-like stage, we observed an overexpression of both precursor and secreted clusterin, corroborated in the cell...
