Role of interleukin-6 in cancer progression and therapeutic resistance
In the last several decades, the number of people dying from cancer-related deaths has not reduced significantly despite phenomenal advances in the technologies related to diagnosis and therapeutic… Expand
Synergistic signals for natural cytotoxicity are required to overcome inhibition by c-Cbl ubiquitin ligase.
Natural killer (NK) cell cytotoxicity toward target cells depends on synergistic coactivation by NK cell receptors such as NKG2D and 2B4. How synergy occurs is not known. Synergistic phosphorylation… Expand

ABSTRACT Autophagy is an evolutionary conserved, indispensable, lysosome-mediated degradation process, which helps in maintaining homeostasis during various cellular traumas. During stress, a… Expand
Role of BRCA Mutations in the Modulation of Response to Platinum Therapy
Recent years have seen cancer emerge as one of the leading cause of mortality worldwide with breast cancer being the second most common cause of death among women. Individuals harboring BRCA… Expand
Organ-specific phenotypic and functional features of NK cells in humans
Natural killer (NK) cells kill virus-infected and tumor target cells without prior sensitization. Each NK cell expresses a multitude of activating and inhibitory receptors, and the interplay of… Expand
Use of ligand-based pharmacophore modeling and docking approach to find novel acetylcholinesterase inhibitors for treating Alzheimer's.

Alzheimer's disease is a neurological disorder in which the patient suffers from memory loss and impaired cognitive abilities. Though the main cause of the disease is not yet known, depletion of… Expand
IL-2 mediates NK cell proliferation but not hyperactivity
Natural killer cells play a major role in innate immunity against tumor and virus-infected cells. NK cells express activating and inhibitory receptors to regulate their function. It has been… Expand
Radiation induces EIF2AK3/PERK and ERN1/IRE1 mediated pro-survival autophagy

ABSTRACT Cellular effects of ionizing radiation include oxidative damage to macromolecules, unfolded protein response (UPR) and metabolic imbalances. Oxidative stress and UPR have been shown to… Expand
Role of interaction between Ly49 inhibitory receptors and cognate MHC I molecules in IL2-induced development of NK cells in murine bone marrow cell cultures.
Murine bone marrow (BM) cell preparations lack mature cytotoxic natural killer (NK) cells, but NK cells may be induced in these cell preparations by culturing with interleukin-2 (IL2). Present study… Expand
