1. Cycloheximide's Protection against Cancer

    It has been shown that cycloheximide (CHM), a well-known protein synthesis inhibitor, reduces Cytotoxicity induced by 1-B-D-arabinofuranosylcytosine, nitrogen mustard, or X-irradiation in normal cells, such as small intestine or bone marrow cells.
  2. Blockade of Hsp90 by 17AAG antagonizes MDMX and synergizes with Nutlin to induce p53-mediated apoptosis in solid tumors

      Strategies to induce p53 activation in wtp53-retaining tumors carry high potential in cancer therapy. Nutlin, a potent highly selective MDM2 inhibitor, induces non-genotoxic p53 activation. Although Nutlin shows promise in promoting cell death in hematopoietic malignancies, a major roadblock is that most solid cancers do not undergo apoptosis but merely reversible growth arrest. p53 inhibition by unopposed MDMX is...
