Inhibition of PI3K signaling triggered apoptotic potential of curcumin which is hindered by Bcl-2 through activation of autophagy in MCF-7 cells
(Elsevier France-Editions Scientifiques Medicales Elsevier, 23 Rue Linois, 75724 Paris, France, 2015-04)
Curcumin is a natural anti-cancer agent derived from turmeric (Curcuma longa). Curcumin triggers intrinsic apoptotic cell death by activating mitochondrial permeabilization due to the altered expression of pro-and ...
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 ...
Polyamines modulate the roscovitine-induced cell death switch decision autophagy vs. apoptosis in MCF-7 and MDA-MB-231 breast cancer cells
(Spandidos Publ Ltd, Pob 18179, Athens, 116 10, Greece, 2015-06)
Current clinical strategies against breast cancer mainly involve the use of anti-hormonal agents to decrease estrogen production; however, development of resistance is a major problem. The resistance phenotype depends on ...
Downregulation of c-Myc mediated ODC expression after purvalanol treatment is under control of upstream MAPK signaling axis in MCF-7 breast cancer cells
(Tubitak Scientific & Technical Research Council Turkey, Ataturk Bulvarı No 221, Kavaklıdere, Ankara, 00000, Turkey, 2014)
Roscovitine and purvalanol are specific cyclin-dependent kinase (CDK) inhibitors, which induce apoptosis by triggering cell cycle arrest in various cancer cells such as colon, prostate, and breast cancer cells. Although ...
DENSpm overcame Bcl-2 mediated resistance against Paclitaxel treatment in MCF-7 breast cancer cells via activating polyamine catabolic machinery
(Elsevier France-Editions Scientifiques Medicales Elsevier, 23 Rue Linois, 75724 Paris, France, 2016-12)
Purpose: The Bcl-2 mediated resistance is one of the most critical obstacle in cancer therapy. Conventional chemotherapeutics such as Paclitaxel, a commonly used in the treatment of metastatic breast cancer, is not sufficient ...
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 ...
