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 ...
A novel mechanism of dasatinib-induced apoptosis in chronic myeloid leukemia; Ceramide synthase and ceramide clearance genes
Sphingolipids are bioeffector molecules that control various aspects of cell growth, proliferation, apoptosis, and drug resistance. Ceramides, the central molecule of sphingolipid metabolism, are inducer of apoptosis and ...
Roles of ceramide synthase and ceramide clearence genes in nilotinib-induced cell death in chronic myeloidleukemia cells
(Informa Healthcare, 2011-08)
In this study, we aimed to increase the sensitivity of human K562 and Meg-01 chronic myeloid leukemia (CML) cells to nilotinib by targeting bioactive sphingolipids, in addition to investigating the roles of ceramide ...
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 ...
Bioactive sphingolipids in docetaxel-induced apoptosis in human prostate cancer cells
In this study, we examined the possible roles of ceramide/sphingosine-1-phosphate and ceramide/glucosyleceramide signaling in docetaxel-induced apoptosis by examining expression levels of the glucosyleceramide synthase and ...
