The effects of Benjakul extract and its isolated compounds on cell cycle arrest and apoptosis in human non-small cell lung cancer cell line NCI-H226

6 views | Jul 02 2021

Arunporn Itharat et al. demonstrated the effects of Benjakul and its compounds on S-G2/M or G2/M phase arrest and caspase-dependent apoptosis in lung cancer cells. [Read the Full Post]

Porcine Picornavirus 3C Protease Degrades PRDX6 to Impair PRDX6-mediated Antiviral Function

17 views | Apr 12 2021

Congcong Wang et al. found that PRDX6 played an important antiviral role during porcine picornavirus infection, and the viral 3Cpro induced the degradation of PRDX6 to overcome PRDX6-mediated antiviral function. [Read the Full Post]

Pyroptosis is involved in the inhibitory effect of FL118 on growth and metastasis in colorectal cancer

64 views | Aug 26 2020

Zhenxue Tang et al. found that FL118 restrained the growth and metastasis of colorectal cancer by inducing NLRP3-ASC-Caspase-1 mediated pyroptosis, which provided important evidence in the study on the role of pyroptosis and different tumors. [Read the Full Post]

Cannabinoid 1 Receptor Antagonists Play a Neuroprotective Role in Chronic Alcoholic Hippocampal Injury Related to Pyroptosis Pathway

64 views | Aug 26 2020

Dingang Zhang et al. indicated that cannabinoid receptors were regulated during this process, which suggested promising therapeutic strategies against alcohol-induced neurotoxicity through pharmacologic inhibition of CB1R. [Read the Full Post]

Giardia duodenalis induces extrinsic pathway of apoptosis in intestinal epithelial cells through activation of TNFR1 and K63 de-ubiquitination of RIP1 in vitro

94 views | Aug 11 2020

Lin Liu et al. suggested that Giardia trophozoite stimulation could activate CASP3/8 signaling pathways via activation of TNFR1 and K63 de-ubiquitination of RIP1 caused by up-regulated expressions of CYLD and A20, and promoted Caco-2 cell apoptosis. [Read the Full Post]
