Natural product-derived therapy for prostate cancer: Naringenin, one of the components of Citrus fruits, inhibits the expression of mTORC1 and its downstream target AMD1, dismantles mTORC1-AMD1 signaling network, decreases polyamine levels, and inhibits prostate cancer progression via up regualtion of its target gene, 10/July/2017, 12.13 am

Introduction: What they say: A study from CIC bioGUNE (Center for Cooperative Research in Biosciences), Bizkaia Technology Park, 801 Building, 48160 Derio, Spain shows that “mTORC1-dependent AMD1 regulation sustains polyamine […]

Natural product-derived therapy for heart regeneration and repair: Aspalathin, isolated from the leaves of Rooibos (Aspalathus linearis), increases Agrin expression, activates Yap and ERK-mediated signaling, replaces scar tissue with functional cardiomyocytes, and promotes cardiomyocyte regeneration and repair after myocardial infarction, via up regulation of its target gene, 10/July/2017, 12.05 am

Introduction: What they say: A recent study from Department of Molecular Cell Biology, Weizmann Institute of Science, Rehovot 76100, Israel; Department of Biomedical Engineering, Duke University, Durham, North […]

Natural product-derived Anti-AXL therapeutics for enhancing the efficacy of chemotherapies: Combination of Solosodine and Matrine, found in solanum melongena and Sophora, respectively, decreases the expression of the AXL receptor and its activating ligand, GAS6, increases the expression of a number of tumor suppressor genes, increases therapeutic index of anticancer drugs, suppresses tumorigenesis, migration, invasion, and metastasis via up regulation of its target gene, 9/July/2017, 11.58 pm

Introduction: What they say: A study from the Department of Radiation Oncology, Stanford University School of Medicine shows that “Inhibition of the GAS6/AXL pathway augments the efficacy of […]

Natural product therapy for CyclinD3-CDK6 overexpressing cancers: Epigallocatechin-3-gallate (EGCG), isolated from Green tea, increases the levels of tumor suppressor proteins, inhibits the activity of glycolytic enzymes 6-phosphofructokinase and pyruvate kinase M2, decreases antioxidants NADPH and glutathione levels, increases reactive oxygen species levels, promotes apoptosis, and inhibits the progression of CyclinD3-CDK6 overexpressing cancers via down regulation of its target gene, 9/July/2017, 11.46 pm

Introduction: What they say A study from Department of Cancer Biology, Dana-Farber Cancer Institute, Boston, Massachusetts, USA; and Department of Genetics, Harvard Medical School, Boston, Massachusetts, USA shows […]
