It is becoming more understandable that an existing challenge for translational research is the development of pharmaceuticals that appropriately target reactive oxygen species (ROS)-mediated molecular networks in cancer cells. In line with this approach, there is an overwhelmingly increasing list of many non-marine drugs and marine drugs reported to be(More)
Oncogenic fusion proteins belong to an important class that disrupts gene expression networks in a cell. Astonishingly, fusion-positive prostate cancer cells enable the multi-gene regulatory capability of miRNAs to remodel the signal transduction landscape, enhancing or antagonizing the transmission of information to downstream effectors. Accumulating(More)
Prior research has demonstrated how the endoplasmic reticulum (ER) functions as a multifunctional organelle and as a well-orchestrated protein-folding unit. It consists of sensors which detect stress-induced unfolded/misfolded proteins and it is the place where protein folding is catalyzed with chaperones. During this folding process, an immaculate(More)
Cancer is a multifaceted and genomically complex disease, and rapidly emerging scientific evidence is emphasizing on intra-tumor heterogeneity within subpopulations of tumor cells and rapidly developing resistance against different molecular therapeutics. There is an overwhelmingly increasing list of agents currently being tested for efficacy against(More)
Apoptotic response in hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC) cells is impaired because of interconnectivity of proteins into complexes and signaling networks that are highly divergent in time and space. TNF-related apoptosis-inducing ligand (TRAIL) has emerged as an attractive anticancer agent reported to selectively induce apoptosis in cancer cells. Although(More)
Breast carcinogenesis is a multidimensional disease that has resisted drug-related solutions to date because of heterogeneity, disorganized spatiotemporal behavior of signal transduction cascades, cell cycle checkpoints, cell transition, plasticity, and impaired pro-apoptotic response. These synchronized oncogenic events, including protein–protein(More)
Prostate cancer is a multifactorial, multistep progressive disorder that is undruggable to date because of stumbling blocks in the standardization of therapy. It is triggered by a broad range of proteins, signaling networks and DNA damage response modulators. It is becoming increasingly apparent that DNA repair mediators have split personalities, as they(More)
Progress in our understanding of molecular oncology has started to shed light on dysregulation of spatio-temporally controlled signaling pathways, inactivation of tumor suppressor genes, tumour and normal stem cell quiescence, overexpression of oncogenes, extracellular and stromal microenvironments, epigenetics and autophagy. Sequentially and(More)
Prostate cancer is a life-threatening molecular disorder that is undruggable to date because of stumbling blocks in the standardization of therapy. An emerging framework of research is addressing how pathways that are derailed during tumorigenesis are linked to immunological responses, which are instrumental in immunosurveillance of cancer. However,(More)
Parkinson disease is a multifactorial molecular disorder. Miscellaneous regulators have been characterized to date and their implication in disease progression is well documented. Compromised neuromuscular activity is a serious threat posed by malfunctioning of various regulators. The integrity and maintenance of neural architecture underpins neural(More)
