Natural product-derived therapy for prostate cancer: Eriocitrin, one of the components of Lemons, 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, 19/July/2017, 11.54 pm

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 […]
