Antiproliferative and apoptotic effects of selective phenolic acids on T47D human breast cancer cells: potential mechanisms of action
IntroductionThe oncoprotective role of food-derived polyphenol antioxidants has been described but the implicated mechanisms are not yet clear. In addition to polyphenols, phenolic acids, found atExpand

Potent inhibitory action of red wine polyphenols on human breast cancer cells
Breast cancer (one of the most common malignancy in Western societies), as well as esophagus, stomach, lung, bladder, and prostate cancer, depend on environmental factors and diet for growth andExpand

Opioid alkaloids and casomorphin peptides decrease the proliferation of prostatic cancer cell lines (LNCaP, PC3 and DU145) through a partial interaction with opioid receptors.
Opioid agonists (ethylketocyclazocine, etorphine, [D-Ala2,D-Leu5]enkephalin (DADLE), [D-Ala2, N-Me-Phe4-Gly-ol]enkephalin (DAGO), [D-Ser2,Leu5]enkephalin-Thr6 (DSLET) and morphine were found toExpand

The antiproliferative effect of opioid receptor agonists on the T47D human breast cancer cell line, is partially mediated through opioid receptors.
In the present study, we investigated the action of opioid receptor agonists on the proliferation of cells of the T47D human breast cancer cell line, grown in the absence of exogenously addedExpand

Wine Antioxidant Polyphenols Inhibit the Proliferation of Human Prostate Cancer Cell Lines
The effect of different wine antioxidant polyphenols (catechin, epicatechin, quercetin, and resveratrol) on the growth of three prostate cancer cell lines (LNCaP, PC3, and DU145) was investigated. AExpand

Morphine cross-reacts with somatostatin receptor SSTR2 in the T47D human breast cancer cell line and decreases cell growth.
In a previous study, we found that morphine decreases, in a dose-dependent manner, the cell growth of T47D human breast cancer cells, despite the lack of mu opioid receptors and an interaction ofExpand

Identification and characterization of opioid and somatostatin binding sites in the opossum kidney (OK) cell line and their effect on growth
Opioids and somatostatin analogs have been implicated in the modulation of renal water handling, but whether their action is accomplished through central and/or peripheral mechanisms remainsExpand

Opioids modulate constitutive B-lymphocyte secretion.
The opioid system plays a major role in immunomodulation, while its action on cells of the immune system may be opioid receptor-mediated or not. Opioid effects on B-lymphocytes are considered asExpand
