What they say: Introduction: 

The 1989 Nobel prize winner in Chemistry, Prof. Thomas R. Cech from the 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.


What we say: 

In connection with the finding presented above, Dr Boominathan, Founder Director-cum-chief scientist of GBMD, reports that: Natural product Anti-telomerase cancer therapy: Amurensin G, found in Vitis amurensissuppresses the expression of Tripeptidyl Peptidase 1 (TPP1) and inhibits cancer progression via down-regulation of its target gene


Significance:

Given that cancer causes the highest economic loss compared to all the known causes of death worldwide, there is an urgent need to find: (i) a cheaper alternative to the existing expensive drugs; (ii) a side-effect-free natural product-based drug; (iii) a way to effectively treat cancers that are resistant to anti-cancer drugs; and (iv) a way to effectively treat and eradicate metastatic progression of cancer.


From Research Findings to Therapeutic opportunity:

Amurensin G, by decreasing the expression of its target gene, it may suppress the expression of Tripeptidyl Peptidase 1 (TPP1). Remarkably, over 90% human tumors overexpress immortality gene telomerase, suggesting that inhibition of its activity may increase the efficacy of anticancer therapy.

Thus, this study suggests that pharmacological formulations encompassing Amurensin G or its analogs may be used to treat human cancers.
