Nickel (II)-induced cytotoxicity and apoptosis in human proximal tubule cells through a ROS- and mitochondria-mediated pathway.
Nickel compounds are known to be toxic and carcinogenic in kidney and lung. In this present study, we investigated the roles of reactive oxygen species (ROS) and mitochondria in nickel (II)Expand

Involvement of oxidative stress and caspase activation in paclitaxel-induced apoptosis of primary effusion lymphoma cells
Paclitaxel has significant antitumor activity in several human tumors, including Kaposi’s sarcoma (KS). Human herpesvirus 8 (HHV-8) is implicated in all forms of Kaposi’s sarcoma, primary effusionExpand

Effects of vitamin A pretreatment on nickel-induced lipid peroxidation and concentration of essential metals in liver, kidney and lung of mice
Abstract In the present study we report the effects of pretreatment with large doses of vitamin A (Vit A, retinol) on hepatic, renal and pulmonary lipid peroxidation, and Ni and essential metal (Fe,Expand

Sodium butyrate induces apoptosis and cell cycle arrest in primary effusion lymphoma cells independently of oxidative stress and p21CIP1/WAF1 induction
Primary effusion lymphoma, a peculiar type of B cell non-Hodgkin lymphoma, preferentially develops in immunodeficient individuals and its pathogenesis is closely linked with human herpesvirus 8Expand

Epigallocatechin-3-Gallate Suppresses Human Herpesvirus 8 Replication and Induces ROS Leading to Apoptosis and Autophagy in Primary Effusion Lymphoma Cells
Epigallocatechin-3-gallate (EGCG), the major constituent of green tea, has been shown to induce cell death in cancer cells. Primary effusion lymphoma (PEL) is an aggressive neoplasm caused by humanExpand
