Autophagy and apoptosis are two important cellular processes with complex and intersecting protein networks; as such, they have been the subjects of intense investigation. Recent advances have elucidated the key players and their molecular circuitry. For instance, the discovery of Beclin-1’s interacting partners has resulted in the identification of Bcl-2(More)
AIM Abrus agglutinin (AGG) from the seeds of Indian medicinal plant Abrus precatorius belongs to the class II ribosome inactivating protein family. In this study we investigated the anticancer effects of AGG against human hepatocellular carcinoma in vitro and in vivo. METHODS Cell proliferation, DNA fragmentation, Annexin V binding,(More)
Polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons (PAHs) processed by cytochrome P450 (CYP450) during metabolism is well reported to induce carcinogenesis. The present study has developed a new approach to examine apoptotic activity of a known PAH called benzo[a]pyrene (B[a]P), using protein-ligand and protein-protein interaction through in silico approach, followed by in(More)
