Cristina Saura et al.showed that N+C significantly improved PFS and time to intervention for CNS disease versus L+C. No new N+C safety signals were observed. [Read the Full Post]

TGF-β1-mediated Repression of SLC7A11 Drives Vulnerability to GPX4 Inhibition in Hepatocellular Carcinoma Cells

44 views | Jun 09 2020

Do Hyung Kim et al. showed that TGF-β1 repressed xCT expression via Smad3 activation and enhanced lipid peroxidation in hepatocellular carcinoma cells with an early TGF-β1 signature, which would benefit from the targeting of GPX4. [Read the Full Post]

On the Mechanism of Cytoprotection by Ferrostatin-1 and Liproxstatin-1 and the Role of Lipid Peroxidation in Ferroptotic Cell Death

0 views | Dec 23 2019

Zilka O et al. demonstrated that potent RTAs subvert ferroptosis and suggest that lipid peroxidation (autoxidation) may play a central role in the process. [Read the Full Post]

LncRNA FER1L4 induces apoptosis and suppresses EMT and the activation of PI3K/AKT pathway in osteosarcoma cells via inhibiting miR-18a-5p to promote SOCS5

125 views | Oct 03 2019

Ye F et al. indicated thatthe overexpression of FER1L4 promoted apoptosis and inhibited the EMT markers expression and PI3K/AKT signaling pathway activation in OS cells via downregulating miR-18a-5p to promote SOCS5. [Read the Full Post]

RSL3 and Erastin differentially regulate redox signaling to promote Smac mimetic-induced cell death

0 views | Aug 06 2019

Dächert J et al. showed that RSL3/BV6 and Erastin/BV6 differentially regulate redox signaling and cell death in ALL cells. While RSL3/BV6 cotreatment induces ferroptotic cell death, Erastin/BV6 stimulates oxidative cell death independently of iron. These findings have important implications for the therapeutic targeting of redox signaling to enhance Smac mimetic-induced cell death in ALL. [Read the Full Post]

Heme oxygenase-1 accelerates erastin-induced ferroptotic cell death

158 views | Aug 06 2019

Kwon MY et al. showed that hemin and CORM accelerate the HO-1 expression in the presence of Erastin and increase membranous lipid peroxidation. Thus, HO-1 is an essential enzyme for iron-dependent lipid peroxidation during ferroptotic cell death. [Read the Full Post]
