Recombinant adenoviruses expressing apoptin suppress the growth of MCF ‑7 breast cancer cells and affect cell autophagy.

In conclusion, apoptin‑induced cell death may involve both autophagy and apoptosis. The induction of autophagy may inhibit apoptosis, whereas apoptosis may inhibit autophagy; however, occasionally both pathways operate at the same time and involve apoptin. This apoptin‑associated selection between tumor cell survival and death may provide a potential therapeutic strategy for breast cancer. PMID: 30896879 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]

Conclusion: Our findings indicate that the positive role of RES in diabetic wound healing via its SIRT1-dependent endothelial protection and pro-angiogenic effects involves the inhibition of FOXO1 and the de-repression of c-Myc expression. Introduction Diabetes mellitus is a metabolic disease with an increasing incidence worldwide (Zimmet et al., 2014). The disease often leads to the development of serious complications such as microangiopathy, mainly including retinopathy, nephropathy, neuropathy, and diabetic non-healing skin ulcers (Zheng et al., 2018). Diabetic non-healing skin ulcers such as foot ulcers are ca...

Laure Garnier*, Anastasia-Olga Gkountidi and Stephanie Hugues* Department of Pathology and Immunology, Faculty of Medicine, University of Geneva, Geneva, Switzerland The lymphatic system comprises a network of lymphoid tissues and vessels that drains the extracellular compartment of most tissues. During tumor development, lymphatic endothelial cells (LECs) substantially expand in response to VEGFR-3 engagement by VEGF-C produced in the tumor microenvironment, a process known as tumor-associated lymphangiogenesis. Lymphatic drainage from the tumor to the draining lymph nodes consequently increases, powering inters...

Authors: Neukirch L, Nielsen TK, Laursen H, Daradoumis J, Thirion C, Holst PJ Abstract Endogenous retroviruses (ERVs) that make up 8% of the human genome have been associated with the development and progression of cancer. The murine model system of the melanoma associated retrovirus (MelARV), which is expressed in different murine cancer cell lines, can be used to study mechanisms and therapeutic approaches against ERVs in cancer. We designed a vaccine strategy (Ad5-MelARV) of adenoviruses encoding the MelARV proteins Gag and Env that assemble in vivo into virus-like particles displaying the cancer-associated MelA...

In conclusion, cytoplasmic M‑CSF suppressed apoptosis by inhibiting the HIF‑1α/BNIP3/Bax signalling pathway, which potentiated the dissociation of Bcl‑2 from Bcl‑2‑BNIP3 compounds and the formation of Bcl‑2‑Bax compounds. PMID: 30592292 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]

Soyasapogenol B (Soy B), an ingredient of soybean, has been found to exert anti-proliferative activities in vitro in human breast cancer cells. The current study aimed to evaluate the efficacy of Soy B in suppressing CRC.Methods and materialsThe effect of Soy B on cell viability was assessed using the Cell Counting Kit-8 (CCK-8) assay...

CONCLUSION: AAV2-VEGF-Trap has an obvious anti-angiogenic effect and inhibits the growth of glioma just by a single intravenous injection, which is similar to BEV. Moreover, there is a synergistic antitumor effect between AAV2-VEGF-Trap and TMZ. PMID: 30136881 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]

CONCLUSIONS: TIS21/BTG2 significantly lost in the infiltrating ductal carcinoma, but it can inhibit cancer growth via the TIS21/BTG2-tsc1/2-mTORc1-p70S6K axis and downregulate cancer progression via the TIS21/BTG2-mTORc2-AKT1-NFAT1-PHLPP2 pathway. PMID: 29808317 [PubMed - indexed for MEDLINE]

Authors: Li S, Dai H, He Y, Peng S, Zhu T, Wu Y, Li C, Wang K Abstract Bone morphogenetic protein 9 (BMP9) is a member of the BMP family, which is involved in the regulation of tumor biogenesis, development and metastasis. The present study aimed to investigate whether BMP9 inhibits the growth of MDA‑MB‑231 breast cancer cells via the phosphoinositide 3‑kinase (PI3K)/Akt signaling pathway. It was shown that the expression level of BMP9 was significantly decreased, while that of phosphorylated Akt (p‑Akt) was markedly increased in breast cancer tissues compared with these levels in the normal adjac...
