Polyamines modulate the roscovitine-induced cell death switch decision autophagy vs. apoptosis in MCF-7 and MDA-MB-231 breast cancer cells
(Spandidos Publ Ltd, Pob 18179, Athens, 116 10, Greece, 2015-06)
Current clinical strategies against breast cancer mainly involve the use of anti-hormonal agents to decrease estrogen production; however, development of resistance is a major problem. The resistance phenotype depends on ...
Curcumin inhibits autocrine growth hormone-mediated invasion and metastasis by targeting NF-kappa B signaling and polyamine metabolism in breast cancer cells
Curcumin is assumed to be a plant-derived therapeutic drug that triggers apoptotic cell death in vitro and in vivo by affecting different molecular targets such as NF-kappa B. Phase I/II trial of curcumin alone or with ...
Purvalanol A is a strong apoptotic inducer via activating polyamine catabolic pathway in MCF-7 estrogen receptor positive breast cancer cells
(Springer, Van Godewijckstraat 30, 3311 Gz Dordrecht, Netherlands, 2014)
Purvalanol A is a specific CDK inhibitor which triggers apoptosis by causing cell cycle arrest in cancer cells. Although it has strong apoptotic potential, the mechanistic action of Purvalanol A on significant cell signaling ...
Downregulation of c-Myc mediated ODC expression after purvalanol treatment is under control of upstream MAPK signaling axis in MCF-7 breast cancer cells
(Tubitak Scientific & Technical Research Council Turkey, Ataturk Bulvarı No 221, Kavaklıdere, Ankara, 00000, Turkey, 2014)
Roscovitine and purvalanol are specific cyclin-dependent kinase (CDK) inhibitors, which induce apoptosis by triggering cell cycle arrest in various cancer cells such as colon, prostate, and breast cancer cells. Although ...
Inhibition of PI3K signaling triggered apoptotic potential of curcumin which is hindered by Bcl-2 through activation of autophagy in MCF-7 cells
(Elsevier France-Editions Scientifiques Medicales Elsevier, 23 Rue Linois, 75724 Paris, France, 2015-04)
Curcumin is a natural anti-cancer agent derived from turmeric (Curcuma longa). Curcumin triggers intrinsic apoptotic cell death by activating mitochondrial permeabilization due to the altered expression of pro-and ...
DENSpm overcame Bcl-2 mediated resistance against Paclitaxel treatment in MCF-7 breast cancer cells via activating polyamine catabolic machinery
(Elsevier France-Editions Scientifiques Medicales Elsevier, 23 Rue Linois, 75724 Paris, France, 2016-12)
Purpose: The Bcl-2 mediated resistance is one of the most critical obstacle in cancer therapy. Conventional chemotherapeutics such as Paclitaxel, a commonly used in the treatment of metastatic breast cancer, is not sufficient ...
