1.1 Introduction The exciting physics of quantum phase transitions has been explored extensively in the last few years [1, 2]. The non-equilibrium dynamics of a quantum system when quenched very fast [3] or slowly across a quantum critical point [4, 5] has attracted the attention of several groups recently. The possibility of experimental realizations of(More)
PURPOSE Previously we showed that BDMC, an analogue of curcumin suppresses growth of human breast and laryngeal cancer cell line by causing apoptosis. Here, we demonstrate the enhanced anti-cancer activity of a heterocyclic ring (indole) incorporated curcumin analogue ((1E, 6E)-1, 7-di (1H-indol-3-yl) hepta-1, 6-diene-3, 5-Dione), ICA in short, in(More)
Understanding the influence of ubiquitously present plant steroids on mammalian cell biology is currently of interest. Feedback inhibition of HMGCoA reductase (HMGCR) catalytic activity in the transformation of HMG-CoA to mevalonate is a significant regulatory step in sterol biosynthetic pathway. To assess the role of dietary steroids in this biochemical(More)
