Cancer has presented to be the most challenging disease, contributing to one in six mortalities worldwide. The current treatment regimen involves multiple rounds of chemotherapy administration, alone or in combination. The treatment has adverse effects including cardiomyopathy, hepatotoxicity, and nephrotoxicity. In addition, the development of res...
Article
Context: Consuming whole grain food has been motivated due to numerous health benefits arising from their bioactive components. Aims: This study aims to study whether the active compound extracted from Proso and Barnyard millets inhibits cell proliferation and induces apoptotic cell death in MCF-7 cell line. Materials and methods: Cell prolife...
Article
Doxorubicin or Adriamycin, is one of the most widely used chemotherapeutic drug for treating a myriad of cancers. It induces cell death through multiple intracellular targets: reactive oxygen species generation, DNA-adduct formation, topoisomerase II inhibition, histone eviction, Ca²⁺ and iron hemostasis regulation, and ceramide overproduction. Mor...

Cancer cells require higher levels of ATP for their sustained growth, proliferation, and chemoresistance. Mitochondrial matrix protein, C1qbp is upregulated in colon cancer cell lines. It protects the mitochondria from oxidative stress, by inhibiting the Membrane Permeability Transition (MPT) pore and providing uninterrupted synthesis of ATP. This...
Article

The aqueous extract of Cichorium intybus (CIE) leaves have shown the properties of protecting against pancreatic β-cell damage by streptozotocin (STZ), but the molecular mechanisms of its protection are not completely elucidated yet. Our current study focuses on elucidating the mechanisms of these preventive effects of CIE in MIN6 cells and an in-v...
Article
Curcumin has anti‐oxidant, anti‐cancer and anti‐carcinogen property. Our laboratory had previously reported that, curcumin treatment induces reactive oxygen species (ROS) generation in HT‐29 cell line, an effect contradictory to its anti‐oxidant property. This study evaluates the role of p53 in curcumin mediated ROS generation and cell death. Curcu...

In the present study, we hypothesized that the active compound extracted from Proso and Barnyard millets inhibits cell proliferation and apoptosis induction in colon cancer cell line. The bioactive compounds from these millets were purified by supercritical fluid extraction and their structure was elucidated using spectroscopic methods. Extracted b...
Article
Curcumin is a natural dietary polyphenol compound has various pharmacological activities such as anti-proliferative and cancer-preventive activities on tumor cells. Indeed, the role reactive oxygen species (ROS) generated by curcumin on cell death and cell proliferation inhibition in colon cancer is poorly understood. In the present study, we hypot...

Objective: The main aim of the study was to investigate the bioactive compound vanillin extracted from proso millet (compound 1), and barnyard millet (compound 2) induces apoptotic cell death and whether it is mediated through mitochondrial pathway in HT-29 and MCF-7 cell line.Methods: The cells were treated with 250 μg/ml and 1000 μg/ml concentrat...
Article
Curcumin, a natural polyphenolic compound and it is isolated from the rhizome of Curcuma longa, have been reported to possess anticancer effect against stage I and II colon cancer. However, the effect of curcumin on colon cancer at Dukes' type C metastatic stage III remains still unclear. In the present study, we have investigated the anticancer ef...
Article
Full-text available
Transforming growth factor-β (TGF-β) induces the expression of Disabled-2 (Dab2), an endocytic adaptor and tumour suppressor, concomitant with the induction of an epithelial-mesenchymal transition (EMT) in mammary epithelial cells. Here we show that following TGF-β-mediated EMT, sustained TGF-β treatment leads to proteolytic degradation of Dab2 by...
Article
Colon cancer is one of the third most common cancer in man, the second most common cancer in women worldwide, and the second leading cause of mortality in the USA. There are a number of molecular pathways that have been implicated in colon carcinogenesis, including TGF-β/Smad signaling pathway. TGF-β (transforming growth factor-beta) signaling path...

The clinical utility of nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs) is often limited by the adverse effects that they produce in the small intestine. Alterations in the composition and functions of the glycocalyx and brush border membranes of the rat small intestine have been shown to occur in response to indomethacin, an NSAID often used in the...
Article
Full-text available
Nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs), widely used in clinical practice, cause adverse effects in the gastrointestinal tract. These effects have been attributed to mechanisms such as drug-induced cyclooxygenase inhibition, oxidative stress, mitochondrial dysfunction and changes in cell membrane lipids. Our previous study showed that indomet...
Article
Oxidative stress and mitochondrial dysfunction have been implicated in the pathogenesis of indomethacin-induced enteropathy. We evaluated the potential of curcumin, a known cytoprotectant, as an agent to protect against such effects. Rats were pretreated with curcumin (40 mg/kg by intra-peritoneal injection) before administration of indomethacin (2...
Article
Non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs) are commonly used in clinical medicine. Their utility is, however, often limited by the adverse effects they produce in the gastrointestinal tract. Oxidative stress has been shown to occur in the small intestine in response to the oral administration of indomethacin, an NSAID commonly used in toxicity...
