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 ...
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 ...
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 ...
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 ...
