Cancer Lett 293:65-72. 2010..Direct incubation of curcumin to C6 cells during the Hoechst assay also decreased SP. Since SP has been associated with stem cell populations, curcumin may be a dietary phytochemical with potential to target cancer stem cells...
- Conjugates bearing multiple formyl-methionyl peptides display enhanced binding to but not activation of phagocytic cellsShahriar Pooyan
Department of Chemistry, Rutgers University, Rutgers, Piscataway, New Jersey 08854, USA
Bioconjug Chem 13:216-23. 2002..These results suggest that multiple fMLF residues linked to a drug-delivery polymer can be used to target appended drugs to phagocytic cells with relatively little toxicity due to cellular activation...
