Publication date: Available online 22 August 2019Source: Life SciencesAuthor(s): Yang Ge, Bao-lin Liu, Jun-peng Cui, Shu-qiang LiAbstractLivin is an important member of the human inhibitor of apoptosis proteins (IAPs) family. IAPs are proteins with antiapoptotic abilities, and their functions are different from the Bcl-2 (B-cell lymphoma-2) family proteins. However, the precise role of Livin in colon cancer progression remains unclear. The purpose of this study is to assess the effect of overexpression Livin in colon cancer cells and to examine its molecular mechanism. We demonstrated that Livin induced a colon cancer phen...

Development of a pre-treatment planning tool for prediction of temperature distribution would greatly improve the accur...
ConclusionsTaking into consideration the central role of inflammation in the pathophysiology of CRC and the recognised connection between inflammatory events and cancer, these results enlighten the relevance of the phenolic constituents of pennyroyal as important pharmacological sources in the investigation of new treatment options for patients with inflammatory bowel diseases.Graphical abstract
