    Despite substantial interest investigating bacterial mechanisms of fungal growth inhibition, there are few methods available that quantify fungal cell death during direct interactions with bacteria. Here we describe an in vitro cell suspension assay using the tetrazolium salt MTT as a viability...

    Programmed cell death 6 (PDCD6) plays an important role in apoptotic cell death and tumorigenesis. In this study, we investigated whether PDCD6 contributes to the development and/or progression of gastric cancers. PDCD6 protein expression was examined in 169 advanced gastric cancer specimens by...

    Sarcodiol (SD) is a semi-synthetic derivative of sarcophine, a marine natural product. In our previous work, we reported the significant chemopreventive effects of SD against non-melanoma skin cancer both in vitro and in vivo mouse models. In this investigation, we extended this work to study...

    The choice between life and death is one of the major events in regulation of the immune system. T cells that specifically recognize viral or bacterial antigens are selected to survive and proliferate in response to infection, whereas those that are self-reactive are eliminated via apoptosis....

    Hyperhomocysteinemia has been shown to increase the incidence of osteoporosis and osteoporotic fractures. Endoplasmic reticulum (ER) stress was recently shown to be associated with apoptosis in several types of cells. In this study, we determined the effect of homocysteine (Hcy) on the apoptosis...
