Resveratrol is a polyphenol found at high concentrations in grapes and red wine with reported anticarcinogenic effects. We studied the molecular mechanism of resveratrol-induced apoptosis and proliferation arrest in prostate derived cells PZ-HPV-7 (nontumorigenic line), LNCaP (androgen-sensitive cancer line), and PC-3 (androgen-insensitive cancer line).(More)
Prostate cancer represents a major concern in human oncology and the phytoalexin resveratrol (RES) inhibits growth and proliferation of prostate cancer cells through the induction of apoptosis. In addition, previous data indicate that in oestrogen-responsive human breast cancer cells, RES induces apoptosis by inhibition of the phosphoinositide-3-kinase(More)
An isolated preparation formed exclusively of the specific conducting tissue of the A. V. node, bundle of His and bundle branches was dissected from the dog heart and studied using the microelectrode technique. The preparation, being completely isolated from the normal neighboring conducting tissues, can be turned over or twisted, so as to stimulate and(More)
