Constant formation of free radicals mainly reactive oxygen species (ROS) is the main characteristic of all living systems which use oxygen for their basal metabolism. Primarily, ROS are considered an integral component of basic cell regulation and signaling pathways certainly, suppressing tumor progression which forms the basis of the most chemotherapeutic(More)
Several epidemiological studies show that aspirin can act as a chemopreventive agent and decrease the incidences of various cancers including melanoma. In this work, we investigated the in vitro and in vivo efficacy of acetylsalicylic acid (ASA) as an antimelanoma agent in B16-F0 cells and skin B16-F0 melanoma tumor mouse model. Our findings indicate that(More)
Glutathione S-transferase (GST) and multidrug resistance-associated proteins (MRPs) play major roles in drug resistance in melanoma. In this study, we investigated caffeic acid phenethyl ester (CAPE) as a selective GST inhibitor in the presence of tyrosinase, which is abundant in melanoma cells. Tyrosinase bioactivates CAPE to an o-quinone, which reacts(More)
