The effect of [10]-gingerol on cytosol free Ca(2+) concentration ([Ca(2+)](i)) and viability is large unknown. This study examines the early signaling effects of [10]-gingerol on human colorectal cancer cells. It was found that this compound caused a slow and sustained rise of [Ca(2+)](i) in a concentration-dependent manner. [10]-Gingerol also induced a(More)
Low-power laser irradiation (LPLI) is a non-invasive and safe method for cancer treatment that alters a variety of physiological processes in the cells. Autophagy can play either a cytoprotective role or a detrimental role in cancer cells exposed to stress. The detailed mechanisms of autophagy and its role on cytotoxicity in oral cancer cells exposed to(More)
Diallyl disulfide (DADS), one of the major organosulfur compounds of garlic, is recognized as a group of potential chemopreventive compounds. In this study, we examines the early signaling effects of DADS on human colorectal cancer cells SW480 loaded with Ca2+-sensitive dye fura-2. It was found that DADS caused an immediate and sustained rise of [Ca2+]i in(More)
