Therapeutic potential of targeting ceramide/glucosylceramide pathway in cancer
Sphingolipids including ceramides and its derivatives such as ceramide-1-phosphate, glucosylceramide (GlcCer), and sphingosine-1-phosphate are essential structural components of cell membranes. They now recognized as novel ...
STAT pathway in the regulation of zoledronic acid-induced apoptosis in chronic myeloid leukemia cells
In this study, we aimed to evaluate the cytotoxic and apoptotic effects of zoledronic acid on K562 chronic myeloid leukemia (CML) cells and to examine the roles of STAT genes on zoledronic acid-induced apoptosis. The results ...
