Extracellular interleukin 1 alpha (IL-1α) released from keratinocytes is one of the endpoints for in vitro assessments of skin irritancy. Although cells dying via primary skin irritation undergo apoptosis as...
Anti-Proliferative Activities of Vasicinone on Lung Carcinoma Cells Mediated via Activation of Both Mitochondria-Dependent and Independent Pathways

Dey T, Dutta P, Manna P, Kalita J, Boruah HP, Buragohain AK, Unni B

  • Biomol Ther.
  • 2018 Jul;26(4):409-416.
  • doi: 10.4062/biomolther.2017.097
Vasicinone, a quinazoline alkaloid from Adhatoda vasica Nees. is well known for its bronchodilator activity. However its antiproliferative activities is yet to be elucidated. Here-in we investigated the anti-proliferative effect...
Molecular and Functional Characterization of Choline Transporter-Like Proteins in Esophageal Cancer Cells and Potential Therapeutic Targets

In this study, we examined the molecular and functional characterization of choline uptake in the human esophageal cancer cells. In addition, we examined the influence of various drugs on the...
Melatonin Rescues Mesenchymal Stem Cells from Senescence Induced by the Uremic Toxin p-Cresol via Inhibiting mTOR-Dependent Autophagy

Yun SP, Han YS, Lee JH, Kim SM, Lee SH

  • Biomol Ther.
  • 2018 Jul;26(4):389-398.
  • doi: 10.4062/biomolther.2017.071
p-Cresol, found at high concentrations in the serum of chronic kidney failure patients, is known to cause cell senescence and other complications in different parts of the body. p-Cresol is...
Neural Stem Cell Differentiation Using Microfluidic Device-Generated Growth Factor Gradient
