Nanomechanical analysis of cells from cancer patients.
Change in cell stiffness is a new characteristic of cancer cells that affects the way they spread. Despite several studies on architectural changes in cultured cell lines, no ex vivo mechanicalExpand

Green tea extract and (−)-epigallocatechin-3-gallate inhibit hypoxia- and serum-induced HIF-1α protein accumulation and VEGF expression in human cervical carcinoma and hepatoma cells
Green tea extract and its major component (−)-epigallocatechin-3-gallate (EGCG) exhibit antiangiogenic activities in various experimental tumor models. A growing body of evidence has established thatExpand

Associations between NBS1 polymorphisms, haplotypes and smoking-related cancers.
Constituents of tobacco smoke can cause DNA double-strand breaks (DSBs), leading to tumorigenesis. The NBS1 gene product is a vital component in DSB detection and repair, thus genetic variations mayExpand
