Epigallocatechin-3-gallate decreases VEGF production in head and neck and breast carcinoma cells by inhibiting EGFR-related pathways of signal transduction.
In a recent study on head and neck squamous cell carcinoma (HNSCC) cells we found that epigallocatechin-3-gallate (EGCG), a major biologically active component of green tea, inhibited activation ofExpand

Novel Roles of Specific Isoforms of Protein Kinase C in Activation of the c-fos Serum Response Element
ABSTRACT Protein kinase C (PKC) is a multigene family of enzymes consisting of at least 11 isoforms. It has been implicated in the induction of c-fos and other immediate response genes by variousExpand

Roles of Specific Isoforms of Protein Kinase C in the Transcriptional Control of Cyclin D1 and Related Genes*
Although protein kinase C (PKC) has been implicated in cell cycle progression, cell proliferation, and tumor promotion, the precise roles of specific isoforms in these processes is not clear.Expand

Induction of apoptosis by the garlic-derived compound S-allylmercaptocysteine (SAMC) is associated with microtubule depolymerization and c-Jun NH(2)-terminal kinase 1 activation.
Epidemiological and experimental carcinogenesis studies provide evidence that components of garlic (Allium sativum) have anticancer activity. We recently reported that the garlic derivativeExpand

Oxidative stress-induced apoptosis is mediated by ERK1/2 phosphorylation.
Oxidative stress is known to induce apoptosis in a wide variety of cell types, apparently by modulating intracellular signaling pathways. High concentrations of H2O2 have been found to induceExpand

Protein Kinase G Activates the JNK1 Pathway via Phosphorylation of MEKK1*
We recently obtained evidence that treatment of human colon cancer cells with exisulind (sulindac sulfone) and related compounds induces apoptosis by activation of protein kinase G (PKG) and c-JunExpand

Dependence of Gonadotropin-releasing Hormone-induced Neuronal MAPK Signaling on Epidermal Growth Factor Receptor Transactivation*
The hypothalamic decapeptide, gonadotropin-releasing hormone (GnRH), utilizes multiple signaling pathways to activate extracellularly regulated mitogen-activated protein kinases (ERK1/2) in normalExpand

Sulindac sulfone (Exisulind) induces apoptosis and exhibits cancer chemopreventive activity, but in contrast to sulindac, it does not inhibit cyclooxygenases 1 or 2. We found that sulindac sulfoneExpand

Phosphorylation Is Involved in the Activation of Metal-regulatory Transcription Factor 1 in Response to Metal Ions*
We have studied the role of phosphorylation in the activation of metal-regulatory transcription factor-1 (MTF-1) and metallothionein (MT) gene expression. We showed that MTF-1 is phosphorylated inExpand

HSP25 inhibits protein kinase C delta-mediated cell death through direct interaction.
Heat shock protein 25 (HSP25) interferes negatively with apoptosis through several pathways that involve its direct interaction with cytochrome c or Akt. Here we show that HSP25 inhibits proteinExpand
