1-β-D-Arabinofuranosylthymine (araT) may be used as a substrate and inhibitor to study the specificity and kinetics of thymidine kinase(s), such as herpes simplex virus type 1 and 2 thymidine kinases, the HSV1-tk and HSV2-tk gene products. AraT is also used to study the specificity and kinetics of various mitochondrial nucleoside kinases.

Nucleoside kinases from several species are investigated as suicide genes for treatment of malignant tumors by combined gene/chemotherapy. In the present study, we have investigated a novel strategy where nucleoside kinase proteins are directly delivered to cells without delivery of

Cellular models of mitochondrial thymidine kinase (TK2) deficiency require a reliable method to measure TK2 activity in whole cell extracts containing two interfering deoxyribonucleoside kinases, thymidine kinase 1 (TK1) and deoxycytidine kinase. We tested the value of the thymidine analog

Nucleoside kinases from several species are investigated as "suicide genes" for treatment of malignant tumors by combined gene/chemotherapy. We have recently cloned a multisubstrate deoxyribonucleoside kinase of Drosophila melanogaster (Dm-dNK), and we have shown that the enzyme phosphorylates cytotoxic pyrimidine

Prostate cancer (PCa) is the second most common cancer in men. Androgen receptor (AR) signaling pathway plays a crucial role in prostate development and homeostasis. Dysregulation of this pathway activates AR leading to PCa pathogenesis and progression. AR binds testosterone

The industrial synthesis of ammonia (NH3) using iron-based Haber-Bosch catalyst requires harsh reaction conditions. Developing advanced catalysts that perform well at mild conditions (<400 °C, <2 MPa) for industrial application is a long-term goal. Here we report a Co-N-C catalyst with high
