Association between IL-1RN VNTR, IL-1 beta -511 and IL-6 (-174, -572, -597) Gene Polymorphisms and Urolithiasis
(Karger, Allschwilerstrasse 10, Ch-4009 Basel, Switzerland, 2013)
Urolithiasis is a common multifactorial urological disorder that is characterized by stone formation. Interleukin (IL)-1 and IL-6 are pro-inflammatory cytokines that might be linked with urolithiasis. The single nucleotide ...
mTOR signalling alters cell fate following inhibition of cyclin-dependent kinases due to androgen receptor status in prostate cancer cells
(Spandidos Publ Ltd, Pob 18179, Athens, 116 10, Greece, 2014)
Purvalanol and roscovitine are cyclin dependent kinase (CDK) inhibitors that induce cell cycle arrest and apoptosis in various cancer cells. We further hypothesized that co-treatment of CDK inhibitors with rapamycin, an ...
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 ...
Activation of polyamine catabolic enzymes involved in diverse responses against epibrassinolide-induced apoptosis in LNCaP and DU145 prostate cancer cell lines
(Springer Wien, Sachsenplatz 4-6, Po Box 89, A-1201 Wien, Austria, 2014-03)
Epibrassinolide (EBR) is a biologically active compound of the brassinosteroids, steroid-derived plant growth regulator family. Generally, brassinosteroids are known for their cell expansion and cell division-promoting ...
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 ...
CDK Inhibitors Induce Mitochondria-mediated Apoptosis Through the Activation of Polyamine Catabolic Pathway in LNCaP, DU145 and PC3 Prostate Cancer Cells
(Bentham Science Publ Ltd, Executive Ste Y-2, Po Box 7917, Saif Zone, 1200 Br Sharjah, U Arab Emirates, 2014-01)
Androgen signaling is critical in prostate cancer development and progression. The co-existence of hormone responsive and irresponsive cells due to functional androgen receptor (AR) in prostate gland is the major obstacle ...
