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 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 ...
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 ...
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 ...
