Safrole Induces Apoptosis in Human Oral Cancer HSC-3 Cells
Phytochemicals have been used as potential chemopreventive or chemotherapeutic agents. However, there are data suggesting a mutagenic effect of some phytochemicals. We hypothesized that safrole wouldExpand

The roles of endoplasmic reticulum stress and Ca2+ on rhein-induced apoptosis in A-549 human lung cancer cells.
Although rhein has been shown to induce apoptosis in several cancer cell lines, the mechanism of action of rhein-induced cell cycle arrest and apoptosis at the molecular level is not well known. InExpand

Berberine induces apoptosis in human HSC-3 oral cancer cells via simultaneous activation of the death receptor-mediated and mitochondrial pathway.
Evidence has accumulated that berberine is able to induce cell cycle arrest and apoptosis in many human cancer cell lines. However, there is no available information on the effects of berberine onExpand

PEITC inhibits human brain glioblastoma GBM 8401 cell migration and invasion through the inhibition of uPA, Rho A, and Ras with inhibition of MMP-2, -7 and -9 gene expression.
Glioblastoma is the most aggressive primary brain malignancy, and the efficacy of multimodality treatments remains unsatisfactory. Phenethyl isothiocyanate (PEITC), one member of the isothiocyanateExpand

Tetrandrine induces apoptosis Via caspase‐8, ‐9, and ‐3 and poly (ADP ribose) polymerase dependent pathways and autophagy through beclin‐1/ LC3‐I, II signaling pathways in human oral cancer HSC‐3
Tetrandrine is a bisbenzylisoquinoline alkaloid that was found in the Radix Stephania tetrandra S Moore. It had been reported to induce cytotoxic effects on many human cancer cells. In this study, weExpand

Wogonin inhibits N-acetyltransferase activity and gene expression in human leukemia HL-60 cells.
It is well documented that arylamine carcinogens are N-acetylated by cytosolic N-acetyltransferase (NAT) enzyme. NAT plays an important role in the metabolizing of those arylamine compounds.Expand
