Apoptosis plays a central role in shaping the repertoire of circulating mature B lymphocytes, but the underlying molecular mechanisms regulating B cell fate are not well understood. Human B104 B lymphoma cells undergo apoptosis after surface Ig (sIg)M, but not sIgD, ligation; sIgM-mediated apoptosis of B104 cells apparently requires new gene transcription(More)
Malignant melanoma is one of the most lethal and aggressive human malignancies. Suppressed apoptosis and extraordinary invasiveness are the distinctive features that contribute to malignant melanoma. The alkylating agent temozolomide (TMZ) is one of the most effective single chemotherapeutic agents for patients with malignant melanoma, but resistance(More)
Temozolomide (TMZ) is an alkylating agent that is widely used in chemotherapy for cancer. A key mechanism of resistance to TMZ is the overexpression of O6-methylguanine-DNA methyltransferase (MGMT). MGMT specifically repairs the DNA O6-methylation damage induced by TMZ and irreversibly inactivates TMZ. Regulation of MGMT expression and research regarding(More)
Melanoma is the most malignant skin cancer and is highly resistant to chemotherapy and radiotherapy. Curcumin is a component of turmeric, the yellow spice derived from the rhizome of Curcuma longa. It has been demonstrated to modulate multiple cell signaling pathways, including apoptosis, proliferation, angiogenesis and inflammation. In this study, we(More)
