An investigation of the effect of some stable nitroxide antioxidants in prostate cancer cells

Eng, Grace Tzi Ai (2015) An investigation of the effect of some stable nitroxide antioxidants in prostate cancer cells. Masters by Research thesis, Queensland University of Technology.


The risk of prostate cancer and disease progression may potentially be increased by oxidative stress. This project examined the stability of nitroxide antioxidants and their effects on cell growth, survival and gene regulation in prostate cancer cells. The novel nitroxide, CTMIO, synthesised here at QUT, was found to have minimal toxicity and modulated the expression of a subset of oxidative stress and antioxidant-related genes distinct from those regulated by a related derivative. This study has provided a step forward in our understanding of the mechanism of action of nitroxides within cells.

Search Google Scholar™

Citation counts are sourced monthly from Scopus and Web of Science® citation databases.

These databases contain citations from different subsets of available publications and different time periods and thus the citation count from each is usually different. Some works are not in either database and no count is displayed. Scopus includes citations from articles published in 1996 onwards, and Web of Science® generally from 1980 onwards.

Citations counts from the Google Scholar™ indexing service can be viewed at the linked Google Scholar™ search.
