Natural product-based therapy for p53-deficient tumors: Celastrol, an antioxidant & anti-inflammatory drug from herb Thunder of God vine, suppresses & increases the expression of DNp63α & IAPP(Amylin), respectively, and induces regression of p53-mutated human tumors via down regulation of its target gene, 18/March/2015, 10.07 am

The 1989 Noble prize winner in Chemistry, Prof. Thomas R. Cech, from the University of Colorado BioFrontiers Institute, USA, has published a research paper in the 13 December 2012 Nature (492(7428):285-9; and I.F: >42) stating that “The TEL patch of telomere protein TPP1 mediates telomerase recruitment and processivity.”  This study provides mechanistic insights into how TPP1 regulates telomerase function.

In connection with this finding, Dr Boominathan, Founder Director-cum-chief scientist of GBMD, reports that: Molecular therapy for Human Cancer: Menin suppresses the expression of Tripeptidyl Peptidase 1 (TPP1) via up regulation of its target gene Remarkably, over 90% human tumors over express telomerase, suggesting that inhibition of its activity may increase the efficacy of anticancer therapy.  Together, this study suggests that pharmacological formulations containing “Menin or its activators” can be used in the treatment of human cancers.
