It has been shown that Caspy2, a zebrafish active caspase, can efficiently suppress the growth of malignant tumor. The present study was designed to test whether combined gene therapy with IP-10, a potent antitumor chemokine, and Caspy2 would improve therapy efficacy. Recombinant plasmid expressing both Caspy2 and IP-10 genes was mixed with(More)
Betel nut chewing is the most common cause of oral submucous fibrosis (OSF). Arecoline is the main component of the betel nut, and is associated with the occurrence and development of OSF through cytotoxicity, genotoxicity and DNA damage. Similar types of stimuli elicit differential responses in different cells. In the present study, we investigated the(More)
