Novel agents targeting bioactive sphingolipids for the treatment of cancer
(Bentham Science Publishers, 2013-01)
Sphingolipids are a class of lipids that have important functions in a variety of cellular processes such as, differentiation, proliferation, senescence, apoptosis and chemotherapeutic resistance. The most widely studied ...
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 ...
Molecular mechanisms of drug resistance and its reversal in cancer
(Taylor & Francis, 2016-07)
Chemotherapy is the main strategy for the treatment of cancer. However, the main problem limiting the success of chemotherapy is the development of multidrug resistance. The resistance can be intrinsic or acquired. The ...
Major apoptotic mechanisms and genes involved in apoptosis
As much as the cellular viability is important for the living organisms, the elimination of unnecessary or damaged cells has the opposite necessity for the maintenance of homeostasis in tissues, organs and the whole organism. ...
