Inhibition of extracellular signal-regulated kinase potentiates the apoptotic and antimetastatic effects of cyclin-dependent kinase inhibitors on metastatic DU145 and PC3 prostate cancer cells
(Wiley Online Library, 2018-10-15)
Purvalanol and roscovitine are specific cyclin‐dependent kinase (CDK) inhibitors,which have antiproliferative and apoptotic effects on various types of cancer.Although, the apoptotic accomplishment of purvalanol and ...
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 ...
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 ...
Cyclin-dependent kinase inhibitors, roscovitine and purvalanol, induce apoptosis and autophagy related to unfolded protein response in HeLa cervical cancer cells
(Springer, Van Godewijckstraat 30, 3311 Gz Dordrecht, Netherlands, 2018-10)
Roscovitine (Rosc) and purvalanol (Pur) are competitive inhibitors of cyclin-dependent kinases (CDKs) by targeting their ATP-binding pockets. Both drugs are shown to be effective to decrease cell viability and dysregulate ...
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 ...
