Cancer stem cells (CSCs) are one of the main reasons behind cancer recurrence due to their resistance to conventional anti-cancer therapies. Thus, many efforts are being devoted to developing CSC-targeted therapies to overcome the resistance of CSCs to conventional anti-cancer therapies and decrease cancer recurrence. Differentiation therapy is one(More)
5-Hydroxytryptophan (5HTP), an analogue of tryptophan, is a precursor of serotonin that also has effective antioxidative and anti-apoptotic properties (1) . However, the cellular mechanisms underlying these properties of 5HTP have not been explored. In this study, we tested the hypothesis that 5HTP exerts its antioxidative action against oxidative stress(More)
Previous studies indicate that in the elderly, a morphological change in the small intestine is accompanied by apoptosis. However, currently little information is available on the molecular events leading up to the apoptotic process in aged ileum. Our current study assessed mitochondrial apoptotic signaling along with key factors known to be involved in(More)
Low dose radiation has been shown to be beneficial to living organisms using several biological systems, including immune and hematopoietic systems. Chronic low dose radiation was shown to stimulate immune systems, resulting in controlling the proliferation of cancer cells, maintain immune balance and induce hematopoietic hormesis. Since dendritic cells are(More)
In this study, we synthesized hydroxy and/or alkoxy substituted phenyl-benzo[d]thiazole derivatives using substituted benzaldehydes and 2-aminothiophenol in MeOH. The structures of these compounds were established by (1)H and (13)CNMR and mass spectral analyzes. All synthesized compounds were evaluated for their mushroom tyrosinase inhibition activity. Out(More)
BACKGROUND We synthesized (2RS,4R)-2-(2,4-dihydroxyphenyl)thiazolidine-4-carboxylic acid (MHY384) as a potential tyrosinase inhibitor and investigated its antityrosinase activity. METHODS The structure of MHY384 was established using (1)H and (13)C NMR spectroscopy and mass spectral analyses. To investigate dual mechanisms of action of MHY384 for the(More)

Breast cancer is a leading cause of death among women worldwide due to therapeutic resistance and cancer recurrence. Cancer stem cells are believed to be responsible for resistance and recurrence. Many efforts to overcome resistance and recurrence by regulating cancer stem cells are ongoing. Bub1 (Budding uninhibited by benzimidazoles 1) is a mitotic(More)
