[A novel approach for cancer chemoprevention referred to as "gene-regulating chemoprevention"].

Abstract

We examined the effect of butyrate on the expression of WAF1, a potent inhibitor of cyclin-dependent kinases, and its relation to growth arrest in a p53-mutated human colon cancer cell line WiDr. Five millimolar butyrate completely inhibited the growth of WiDr and caused G1-phase arrest. WAF1 mRNA was rapidly induced by treatment with 5.0 mM butyrate, and… (More)
