Geldanamycin (GA) was identified as the first natural inhibitor of Hsp90, increasing evidence suggests that GA was not a good choice for clinical trials. In this study, we investigated two new non-benzoquinone geldanamycin analogs of Hsp90 inhibitors,(More)
OBJECTIVE To investigate the effects of LCL161, a Smac mimetic, on the proliferation and apoptosis in hepatocellular carcinoma cells and the underlying mechanisms. 
 METHODS The effect of LCL161 on the cell viability of HepG2 and SMMC7721 cells was measured by MTT assay. The effect of LCL161 at lower concentrations on the proliferation in hepatocellular(More)
Shikonin, a natural small agent, has shown inhibitory effect in many kinds of cells, which increases intracellular reactive oxygen species (ROS) level and causes mitochondrial injury. In this study, shikonin showed good inhibitory effect on nasopharyngeal carcinoma CNE-2Z cells in vivo and vitro. The results presented here revealed that ROS levels increased(More)
