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 ...
Bag-1L mediated chemoresistance mechanism through preventing downregulation of Mcl-1 and c-Raf by heat shock proteins in HeLa cells
Background: Cisplatin, a DNA damaging agent, induces apoptosis through increasing DNA fragmentation. However, identification of intrinsic resistance molecules against Cisplatin is vital to estimate the success of ...
Lack of evidence for the association of ornithine decarboxylase (+316 G>A), spermidine/spermine acetyl transferase (‑1415 T>C) gene polymorphisms with calcium oxalate stone disease
Urolithiasis is a complex and multifactorial disorder characterized by the presence of stones in the urinary tract. Urea cycle is an important process involved in disease progression. L‑ornithine is a key amino acid in the ...
Purvalanol induces endoplasmic reticulum stress mediated apoptosis and autophagy by purvalanol in HCT 116 colon cancer cells
Purvalanol, a novel cyclin-dependent kinase inhibitor, is referred to as a strong apoptotic inducer which causes cell cycle arrest in various cancer cells such as prostate, breast and colon cancer cell lines. Various ...
Curcumin Prevented Human Autocrine Growth Hormone (GH) Signaling Mediated NF-κB Activation and miR-183-96-182 Cluster Stimulated Epithelial Mesenchymal Transition in T47D Breast Cancer Cells
Autocrine growth hormone (GH) signaling is a promoting factor for breast cancer via triggering abnormal cell growth, proliferation, and metastasis, drug resistance. Curcumin (diferuloylmethane), a polyphenol derived from ...
