Reproductive hormone Progesterone 4 (P4) may find its utility in the treatment of anxiety and depression: Progesterone (P4), a reproductive hormone, decreases PHF8 levels, increases the expression of serotonin receptors Htr1a and Htr2a, and promotes resistance to stress-induced -anxiety and -depression, via down-regulation of its target gene, 8/August/2018, 9.35 pm

Awakening the sleeping/cancer-protecting angels in mutant p53-expressing human tumors: Emodin, isolated from Rhubarb and others,  increases the expression of tumor suppressors genes, such as KISS1, TCF21, TA-p73, TAp63, p53, and others, induces regression of p53-mutated human tumors, via down-regulation of its target gene, 6/August/2018, 2.18 pm

From Significance of the study to Public health relevance:  Given that: (1) cancer suppressor p53 is mutated in more than 50% of human cancers of different […]
