Natural product-derived therapy for prostate cancer bone metastasis: Methyl Jasmonate, isolated from Jasmine, inhibits the expression of Monoamine oxidase A (MAOA), inhibits Shh-IL6-RANKL signaling network, suppresses tumor-stromal interactions, reduces prostate cancer metastasis and prolongs survival via up regulation of its target gene, 11/July/2017, 7.24 am

Introduction: What they say: A study from the Uro-Oncology Research Program, Department of Medicine, Cedars-Sinai Medical Center, Los Angeles, California, USA shows that “MAOA-Dependent Activation of Shh-IL6-RANKL Signaling Network […]

Anti-telomerase cancer therapy: Berberine, one of the components of Berberis, Phellodendron amurense, and Guduchi among others, suppresses the expression of Tripeptidyl Peptidase 1 (TPP1) and inhibits cancer progression via down-regulation of it target gene, 11/July/2017, 6.27 am

Introduction: What they say:   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 issue of the Nature journal (492(7428):285-9; and I.F: >42) stating that “The TEL patch of telomere protein TPP1 […]

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 […]
