Casein Kinase II (CK2) is a ubiquitous serine/threonine kinase that is highly conserved in eukaryotic cells. CK2 has been shown to impact cell growth and proliferation, as numerous growth-related proteins are substrates of CK2. More importantly, experimental evidence linking increased expression and activity of CK2 to human cancers underscores the relevance(More)
Efficient apoptotic signaling is a function of a permissive intracellular milieu created by a decrease in the ratio of superoxide to hydrogen peroxide and cytosolic acidification. Resveratrol (RSV) triggers apoptosis in some systems and inhibits the death signal in others. In this regard, the inhibitory effect on hydrogen peroxide-induced apoptosis is(More)
Execution of the mitochondrial death signaling is paramount to an effective response of cancer cells to chemotherapeutic intervention. Therefore, factors that inhibit the engagement of the mitochondrial amplification pathway, such as the expression of the anti-apoptotic proteins of the Bcl2 family or inactivation of inducers of mitochondrial permeability,(More)
It has been reported that inhibition of protein kinase CK2 (CK2) with antisense oligodeoxynucleotides (ODN) is a potent inducer of apoptosis in cancer cells but not in normal cells. In this regard, the apoptotic-inducing effect is attributed to the catalytic activity of the enzyme, which phosphorylates proapoptotic proteins to inhibit their functions. In(More)
