The roles of bioactive sphingolipids in resveratrol-induced apoptosis in HL60 acute myeloid leukemia cells
Purpose Acute promyelocytic leukemia results from a translocation between 15 and 17 chromosomes that produce PML/RARa fusion protein. PML/RARa inhibits differentiation of myeloid precursor cells at stem cell level. Resveratrol ...
Resveratrol triggers apoptosis through regulating ceramide metabolizing genes in human K562 chronic myeloid leukemia cells
(Taylor & Francis, 2011-05)
Resveratrol, an important phytoalexin in many plants, has been reported to have cytotoxic effects on various types of cancer. Ceramide is a bioactive sphingolipid that regulates many signaling pathways, including cell ...
Quercetin-induced apoptosis involves increased hTERT enzyme activity of leukemic cells
(Taylor & Francis, 2011-09)
We aimed to examine the growth suppressive effects of quercetin on acute promyelocytic and lymphoblastic leukemia and chronic myeloid leukemia, and to find out whether the growth suppression is related to the blocking of ...
Enalapril-induced apoptosis of acute promyelocytic leukaemia cells involves STAT5A
(International Institute of Anticancer Research, 2012-07)
Background: In this study, we aimed at evaluating the cytotoxic and apoptotic effects of enalapril on human HL60 acute promyelocytic leukaemia cells and at clarifying the roles of signal transducers and activator of ...
Caffeic acid phenethyl ester triggers apoptosis through induction of loss of mitochondrial membrane potential in CCRF-CEM cells
Purpose CAPE (caffeic acid phenethyl ester) is one of the most valuable and investigated component of propolis which is composed by honeybees. In the current study, we aimed at examining apoptotic effects of CAPE ...
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 ...
