Astrocytes and neuronal and oligodendroglial perikarya isolated by the method of Norton and Poduslo (1970) were examined by transmission and scanning electron microscopy and inverted phase contrast microscopy. The viability of the cells, as determined by the eosin exclusion method, was also determined. The three cell fractions showed only slight(More)
Curcumin (CUR) is a compound that has antibacterial, antiviral, anti-inflammatory, and anticancer properties. In this study, we have analyzed the effects of CUR on the expression of ERα and p53 in the presence of hormones and anti-hormones in breast cancer cells. Cells were cultured in a medium containing charcoal-stripped fetal bovine serum to deplete any(More)
