26755138 activity of MTH1 in different breast cancer cell lines has been detected, implying the potential application of this assay method for biomedical research and clinical diagnose in the future
26520386 Results show that MTH1 plays no role in protecting the cells against ultraviolet radiation-induced cytogenetic damage.
26238318 MTH1 is the most prominent sanitizer of the cellular dNTP pool known to date.
26202347 a novel approach involving liquid chromatography-isotope-dilution tandem mass spectrometry to positively identify and accurately quantify MTH1 in human tissues, is reported.
25893378 MTH1 expression is required for effective transformation of epithelial cells by oncogenic HRAS.
25127756 Data suggest that hOGG1 could compensate for hMTH1 during oxidative DNA damage caused by H2O2, whereas hMTH1 could not compensate sufficiently for hOGG1 during the process.
25023700 results indicate MTH1 is a novel and critical component of oncogenic KRAS-associated malignancy and its inhibition is likely to yield significant tumor-suppressive outcomes in KRAS-driven tumors.
24928220 The ectopic expression of hMTH1 in the chloroplasts and mitochondria of Arabidopsis enhanced oxidative stress tolerance by activating the poly(ADP-ribosyl)ation (PAR)reaction and suppressing programmed cell death.
24695224 cancer cells require MTH1 activity to avoid incorporation of oxidized dNTPs, resulting in DNA damage and cell death; validation of MTH1 as an anticancer target in vivo
24144844 MTH1 protects cells from mutagenesis induced by ultraviolet ray A and B, but not ultraviolet ray C.hMTH1 prevents induction of transition-type mutations at AT and GC post ultraviolet ray A irradiation.
