    Ceramide is a sphingolipid metabolite that induces cancer cell death. When C6-ceramide is encapsulated in a nanoliposome bilayer formulation, cell death is selectively induced in tumor models. However, the mechanism underlying this selectivity is unknown. As most tumors exhibit a preferential...

    Arsenic trioxide (As2O3) has shown considerable efficacy in treating hematological malignancies with induction of programmed cell death (PCD) type I, apoptosis. However, the mechanisms underlying the antitumor effect of As2O3 on solid tumors are poorly defined. Previously, we reported that As2O3...

    Abstract  There has been considerable interest in recent years in the anti-tumor activities of flavonoids. Quercetin, a ubiquitous bioactive flavonoid, can inhibit proliferation and induce apoptosis in a variety of cancer cells. However, the precise molecular mechanism by which quercetin...

    The article presents information on a study on the in vitro antineoplastic effect and mechanism of action of Casiopeina III-ia (Cas III-ia) on rat malignant glioma C6 cells. The study suggest that Cas III-ia induces cell death by autophagy and apoptosis because of the activation of ROS dependent...

    Glioblastoma multiforme is the most aggressive primary brain tumour. At the cellular and molecular levels, several mechanisms responsible for apoptosis or autophagy induction are blocked. Identification of molecular targets stimulating cells to initiate programmed cell death should be performed...

    Induction of caspase-dependent apoptosis (type I cell death) is a major mechanism by which most chemotherapeutic drugs and radiation kill tumor cells. However, conventional cancer therapies fail to mediate their effects in a target-specific fashion. The extremely unfavorable prognosis for...

    Paraptosis is the programmed cell death pathway that leads to cellular necrosis. Previously, rodent and human monocytes/ macrophages killed glioma cells bearing the membrane macrophage colony stimulating factor (mM-CSF) through paraptosis, but the molecular mechanism of this killing process was...

    Cellular senescence is an irreversible block of cellular division, and induction of senescence is being considered for treatment of many cancer types, mainly those resistant to classical pro-apoptotic therapies. Resveratrol (Rsv) and quercetin (Quer), two natural polyphenols, are able to induce...
