Lack of functional p53 renders DENSpm-induced autophagy and apoptosis in time dependent manner in colon cancer cells
(Springer Wien, Sachsenplatz 4-6, Po Box 89, A-1201 Wien, Austria, 2015-01)
Polyamines (PAs), such as putrescine, spermidine and spermine, are alkyl-amines that are essential for cell growth, proliferation, differentiation and cancer progression in eukaryotic cells. A designed PA analogue; DENSpm, ...
Inhibition of autophagy enhances DENSpm-induced apoptosis in human colon cancer cells in a p53 independent manner
(Springer, Van Godewijckstraat 30, 3311 Gz Dordrecht, Netherlands, 2018-06)
One of the recently developed polyamine (PA) analogues, N (1) ,N (11)-diethylnorspermine (DENSpm), has been found to act as an apoptotic inducer in melanoma, breast, prostate and colon cancer cells. Also, its potential to ...
Inhibition of autophagy by 3-MA potentiates purvalanol-induced apoptosis in Bax deficient HCT 116 colon cancer cells
(Elsevier Inc, 525 B Street, Ste 1900, San Diego, Ca 92101-4495 Usa, 2014-10-15)
The purine-derived analogs, roscovitine and purvalanol are selective synthetic inhibitors of cyclin-dependent kinases (CDKs) induced cell cycle arrest and lead to apoptotic cell death in various cancer cells. Although a ...
Diclofenac induced apoptosis via altering PI3K/Akt/MAPK signaling axis in HCT 116 more efficiently compared to SW480 colon cancer cells
(Springer Link, 2018-12)
Diclofenac is a preferential cyclooxygenase 2 inhibitor (COX-2) and member of non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs). Inflammation is one of the main reason of poor prognosis of colon cancer cases; thereby NSAIDs ...
Epibrassinolide alters PI3K/MAPK signaling axis via activating Foxo3a-induced mitochondria-mediated apoptosis in colon cancer cells
(Elsevier Inc, 525 B Street, Ste 1900, San Diego, Ca 92101-4495 Usa, 2015-10-15)
Epibrassinolide (EBR), a steroid-derived plant growth regulator, has been recently suggested as an apoptotic inducer in different cancer cells. In this experimental study, we investigated the potential apoptotic effect of ...
