The mechanisms of beneficial preventive and therapeutic effects achieved by traditional and complementary medicine are currently being deciphered in molecular medicine. Curcumin, a yellow-colored polyphenol derived from the rhizome of turmeric (Curcuma longa), influences a wide variety of cellular processes through the reshaping of many molecular targets.(More)
The influence of de novo synthesis of nicotinamide adenine dinucleotide (NAD) through the kynurenine (KYN) pathway of tryptophan (TRP) degradation on gene transcription of inducible nitric oxide synthase (iNOS) and nitric oxide (NO) production in chicken interferon gamma (ChIFN-gamma)-stimulated and non-stimulated chicken macrophage cell line HD11 was(More)
BORIS is a paralog of a highly conserved, multi-functional chromatin factor CTCF. Unlike CTCF, which has been shown to possess tumor-suppressive properties, BORIS belongs to the “cancer/testis antigen” family normally expressed only in germ cells and aberrantly activated in a variety of tumors. The consequences of BORIS expression, relative abundance of its(More)
Cancer has long been considered primarily a genetic disease, caused by different mutations throughout the genome. In 1983., Feinberg and Vogelstein discovered that the level of DNA methylation significantly varies between primary human malignant tumors and their normal counterparts (Feinberg & Vogelstein, 1983). Before this publication, there had been a(More)
