Antiproliferative and apoptotic effects of selective phenolic acids on T47D human breast cancer cells: potential mechanisms of action
IntroductionThe oncoprotective role of food-derived polyphenol antioxidants has been described but the implicated mechanisms are not yet clear. In addition to polyphenols, phenolic acids, found atExpand

Opioid alkaloids and casomorphin peptides decrease the proliferation of prostatic cancer cell lines (LNCaP, PC3 and DU145) through a partial interaction with opioid receptors.
Opioid agonists (ethylketocyclazocine, etorphine, [D-Ala2,D-Leu5]enkephalin (DADLE), [D-Ala2, N-Me-Phe4-Gly-ol]enkephalin (DAGO), [D-Ser2,Leu5]enkephalin-Thr6 (DSLET) and morphine were found toExpand

Estrogen anti‐inflammatory activity on human monocytes is mediated through cross‐talk between estrogen receptor ERα36 and GPR30/GPER1
Estrogens are known modulators of monocyte/macrophage functions; however, the underlying mechanism has not been clearly defined. Recently, a number of estrogen receptor molecules and splice variantsExpand

Adipocytes as Immune Cells: Differential Expression of TWEAK, BAFF, and APRIL and Their Receptors (Fn14, BAFF-R, TACI, and BCMA) at Different Stages of Normal and Pathological Adipose Tissue
Adipose tissue represents a rich source of multipotent stem cells. Mesenchymal cells, isolated from this source, can differentiate to other cell types in vitro and therefore can be used for a numberExpand
