Nearly 15 types of programmed cell death (PCD) have been identified to date. Among them, apoptosis is the most common and well-studied type of PCD. In this review, we discuss different apoptotic pathways in which plasma membrane and membrane organelles, such as mitochondria, endoplasmic reticulum, Golgi apparatus, lysosomes, and nucleus play the pivotal(More)
Vitamin E derivatives are known to act as agents exhibiting cytotoxity against tumor cells. The effect of vitamin E succinate on human epidermoid carcinoma cell line A431 was investigated in this study using live imaging, immunocytochemistry, and transmission electron microscopy. α-Tocopheryl succinate-induced apoptotic cell death in A431 cells was shown to(More)
The widespread occurrence of malignant tumors motivates great attention to finding and investigating effective new antitumor preparations. Such preparations include compounds of the vitamin E family. Among them, α-tocopheryl succinate (vitamin E succinate (VES)) has the most pronounced antitumor properties. In this review, various targets and mechanisms of(More)
Plant hormones play a key role in plant growth and differentiation. Certain plant hormones are known to be potential antitumor agents, affect the secretory activity of animal cells, and are produced by mammalian cells as proinflammatory cytokines. The goal of this research was to study the effect of abscisic and gibberellic acids on the secretory system of(More)
This review considers apoptosis mechanisms that have been revealed in cryopreserved cells and which can be controlled using different chemical agents, thereby improving the viability of cells after their return to normal conditions. The role of oxidative stress as of the most significant damaging factor is discussed, as well as the reasonability of(More)
