BACKGROUND Cryptopleurine, a phenanthroquinolizidine alkaloid, was known to exhibit anticancer activity; however, the underlying mechanism is poorly understood. Because the nuclear factor-κB (NF-κB) transcription factors control many physiological processes including inflammation, immunity, and development and progression of cancer, we investigated the(More)
Nuclear factor-kappa B (NF-κB) has been reported to play a pivotal role in many physiological processes including inflammation, apoptosis, and angiogenesis. We discovered a potent natural NF-κB inhibitor, dihydromyricetin, from the traditional herb Ampelopsis grossedentata, which has a long history of use in food and medicine. In this study, we demonstrated(More)
Zinc finger protein 91 (ZFP91) has been reported to be involved in various biological processes. However, the clinical significance and biological role of ZFP91 in colon cancer remains unknown. Here, we show that ZFP91 expression is upregulated in patients with colon cancer. We found that ZFP91 upregulated HIF-1α at the levels of promoter and protein in(More)
