The effects of all-trans retinoic acid (ATRA) on cancer are complex. ATRA has anti-cancer effects as it promotes cancer cell differentiation. However, ATRA also up-regulates expression of vascular endothelial growth factor (VEGF) in cancer cells, which leads to angiogenesis and can, thus, facilitate cancer growth. Genistein, a crucial non-nutrient component(More)
Photodynamic therapy (PDT) is an effective therapeutic regime for lung cancer. Mitochondrial functional failure is considered to be one of the most important factors causing cell death after PDT. However, the detailed mechanisms that are involved are still unclear. We previously reported that apurinic/apyrimidinic endonuclease (APE1) plays a critical role(More)
A number of growth factors secreted by bone marrow stromal cells (BMSCs), including interleukin-6 and -8 (IL-6/8), are important for the initiation and progression of multiple myeloma (MM). However, the mechanisms that regulate the production of IL-6/8 by BMSC have not yet been well characterized. Human dual functional protein apurinic/apyrimidinic(More)
The main goal of this work is to investigate the killing effects and molecular mechanism of photodynamic therapy (PDT) mediated by the Ad5/F35-APE1 siRNA recombinant adenovirus in combination with a hematoporphrphyrin derivative (HpD) in the A549 human lung adenocarcinoma cell line in vitro to provide a theoretical reference for treating lung cancer by(More)
Photodynamic therapy (PDT) is considered to be effective treatment for many cancers including lung cancer, head and neck cancers, and prostate cancer. It uses the combination of nontoxic photosensitizers and harmless visible light to generate reactive oxygen species and kill cells. However, DNA repair and reactive oxygen species-induced signaling pathway(More)
