Three new phloroglucinol derivatives from the aerial parts of Pogostemon auricularius and their cytotoxic activity

Publication date: December 2018Source: Phytochemistry Letters, Volume 28Author(s): Linh Thuy Thi Tran, Duc Viet Ho, Dung Viet Le, Tran Manh Hung, Hoai Thi Nguyen, Ain RaalAbstractPogostemonons A–C (1–3), three new phloroglucinol derivatives were isolated from the aerial parts of Pogostemon auricularius (L.) Hassk. Their chemical structures were established by 1D, 2D NMR and HRESIMS data. These compounds showed weak to moderate growth inhibitory activities against lung adenocarcinoma (LU-1), oral epidermoid carcinoma (KB), liver hepatocellular carcinoma (Hep-G2), colon adenocarcinoma (SW-480), and gastric adenocarcinoma (AGS) cell lines with IC50 values ranging from 39.80 ± 4.39 to 98.32 ± 8.94 μg/mL.Graphical abstract

Previous studies proposed that rs2585428, rs4809960, rs6022999 and rs6068816 in CYP24A1 gene might be greatly associated with cancer risk. To validate the findings, we here investigated the associations of these four polymorphisms and colorectal cancer (CRC) risk in a c...

The amplification of RICTOR has been proposed as a therapeutically relevant genomic alteration. However, other than next-generation sequencing, precise diagnostic methods to detect RICT...

In this study, we revealed that NLRP3 was elevated in CRC tissues and related to clinical factors, such as lymph node invasion and tumor-node-metastasis (TNM) stage. Moreover, NLRP3- positive patients had a poor prognosis. Furthermore, univariate and multivariate analysis revealed that NLRP3 expression was an independent prognostic factor for the survival of CRC patients. We investigated whether NLRP3 linked with the mTOR-S6K1 pathway. The expression of p-S6K1 was upregulated in CRC tissues and NLRP3 expression level was positively associated with the p-S6K1 level. Thus, targeting NLRP3 may be promising for targeted therap...

Follow-up abdominal computed tomography showed a 6-cm mass in the left lower mesentery. The patient underwent open laparotomy. The histological diagnosis was sclerosing mesenteritis. The previous specimens of the left adrenal mass were then re-examined with a microscope, and panniculitis was found around the small cell carcino...

Authors: Ohara N, Kobayashi M, Ikeda Y, Hoshi T, Morita S, Kanefuji T, Yagi K, Suda T, Takada T, Hasegawa G, Sato Y, Hirano K, Kosugi SI Abstract A 70-year-old man with insulinoma-associated antigen-2 autoantibodies developed diabetes mellitus (DM) without ketoacidosis after starting nivolumab to treat advanced gastric cancer. He subsequently exhibited preserved insulin-secretion capacity for over one year. Immune-checkpoint inhibitors (ICIs) infrequently cause type 1 DM associated with the rapid loss of insulin secretion and ketoacidosis as an immune-related adverse event. ICIs may also cause non-insulin-dependent...
