Natural product-derived therapy for brain tumor and oesophageal squamous cell carcinoma: Honokiol, one of the components of Magnolia grandiflora, inhibits the expression of Integrin a7 (ITGA7), impairs laminin-induced/FAK mediated signalling, inhibits the proliferation of glioblastoma and oesophageal squamous cell carcinoma stem cells, suppresses tumor cell migration, reduces metastasis and prolongs survival via down regulation of its target gene, 18/June/2017, 11.59 pm

Natural product-derived therapy for Chronic Myeloid leukaemia (CML): Cucurbitacin D, found in watermelon, decreases the expression of Musashi2, inhibits cytosolic aminotransferase BCAT1 expression, decreases the intracellular production of BCAAs (Branched-chain amino acids), increases the expression of tumor suppressor genes, promotes differentiation of CML cells, and inhibits cancer progression in Myeloid leukemia via up-regulation of its target gene, 18/June/2017, 12.28 am
