Nonapoptotic cell death induced by Hypericum species on cancer cells
Objectives. There are approximately 400 Hypericum species that grow naturally in different geographic originsof the world. Those species have been used in different folk medicines and screened for their biological ...
A trans-platinum(II) complex induces apoptosis in cancer stem cells of breast cancer
(Pergamon-Elsevier Science Ltd, 2017)
Recent accumulating evidence has supported the notion that tumors have hierarchically organized heterogeneous cell populations and a small subpopulation of cells, termed cancer stem cells (CSCs), are responsible for tumor ...
Novel 1-(7-ethoxy-1-benzofuran-2-yl) substituted chalcone derivatives: synthesis, characterization and anticancer activity
(Elsevier France-Editions Scientifiques Medicales Elsevier, 2017)
Cancer treatment still requires new compounds to be discovered. Chalcone and its derivatives exhibit anticancer potential in different cancer cells. A new series of benzofuran substituted chalcone derivatives was synthesized ...
Enhanced cytotoxic activity of doxorubicin through the inhibition of autophagy in triple negative breast cancer cell line
(Elsevier Science Bv, 2017)
Background: The outcome of triple negative breast cancer is still poor and requires improvement with better therapy options. Autophagy has recently been shown to play a role in anticancer drug resistance. Therefore, we ...
The MTT viability assay yields strikingly false-positive viabilities although the cells are killed by some plant extracts
(Tubitak Scientific & Technical Research Council Turkey, 2017)
The MTT assay is one of the often used cell viability/cytotoxicity assays. However, when the methanol extracts of plants are used to test their cytotoxic potential, interference may occur, resulting in false-positive ...
Folic acid-conjugated cationic Ag2S quantum dots for optical imaging and selective doxorubicin delivery to HeLa cells
(Future Medicine Ltd, 2017)
We aim to develop folic acid ( FA)-conjugated cationic Ag2S near-infrared quantum dots (NIRQDs) for the delivery of doxorubicin (DOX) selectively to folate receptor (FR)-positive cancer cells to achieve enhanced drug ...
