Garlic-derived organo sulphur compounds such as diallylsulfides provide a significant protection against carcinogenesis. Chemically synthesized, and highly pure diallylsulfides with a chain of 1-4 sulphur atoms, as well as a range of control compounds, were employed to investigate the influence of these agents on cell viability, cell cycle arrest and induction of apoptosis in HCT116 human colon cancer cells. Diallyltrisulfide, and even more efficiently diallyltetrasulfide treatment of HCT116… Expand
A scent of therapy: Synthetic polysulfanes with improved physico-chemical properties induce apoptosis in human cancer cells.
TLDR
It is demonstrated that the new odourless tri- and tetrasulfanes exhibit a similar activity compared to their natural counterparts, yet are easier to handle and also deprived of the offensive odour which so far has prevented most practical applications of such polysulfanes, at least in the context of medicine. Expand
Diallyl trisulfide sensitizes human melanoma cells to TRAIL-induced cell death by promoting endoplasmic reticulum-mediated apoptosis.
TLDR
It is shown that diallyl trisulfide (DATS), a garlic-based compound, sensitizes melanoma cells to TRAIL-induced apoptosis while DATS also potentiates apoptosis induced by agonistic antibodies against death receptors (DR) 4 and DR5, and raises the possibility that DATS may be combined with death ligands to treat TRAil-resistance melanoma without impairing its tumor selectivity. Expand
Coumarin polysulfides inhibit cell growth and induce apoptosis in HCT116 colon cancer cells.
TLDR
The novel coumarin compounds regulated the phosphatase activity of the cell cycle regulating cdc25 family members, indicating that these phosphatases are implicated in the induction of cell cycle arrest and possibly in apoptosis induction as well. Expand
Effect of coumarin and diallyl polysulfides on HCT116 colon cancer cells
My doctoral research work is directed towards studies of intracellular redox-sensitive processes triggered or influenced by external redox-modulating agents such as coumarin and diallyl polysulfanes.Expand
Diallyl tetrasulfane activates both the eIF2α and Nrf2/HO-1 pathways.
TLDR
This study shows for the first time a parallel but not equal activation of signaling pathways by DATTS with a competitive ultimate cellular outcome and this antioxidant defense is not sufficient to protect HCT116 cells from apoptosis. Expand
Plumbagin Modulates Leukemia Cell Redox Status
TLDR
The anticancer potential of plumbagin is driven by pro-oxidant activities related to the cellular thiolstat, which prevents ROS production and subsequent induction of cell death by apoptosis whereas non-thiol-containing antioxidants remained ineffective in both cellular models. Expand
Diallyl Sulfides and the Decision About Life and Death of a Cell
The medicinal benefits of garlic have been documented throughout recorded history. These known health benefits of garlic include cardiovascular protective effects, stimulation of the immune system,Expand
The Effect of Diallyl Polysulfanes on Cellular Signaling Cascades
TLDR
This review is aimed at addressing the targeting of specific intracellular signal transduction cascades by these diallyl polysulfanes in order to shed some light on possible mechanisms of action of these compounds. Expand
The Effects of Allicin, a Reactive Sulfur Species from Garlic, on a Selection of Mammalian Cell Lines
TLDR
Data show that mammalian cell lines differ in their sensitivity and responses to allicin in regard to viability, cell proliferation and glutathione oxidation. Expand
Garlic-derived natural polysulfanes as hydrogen sulfide donors: Friend or foe?
TLDR
It is hypothesize that OSCs act through H2S signaling pathways in cancer cells, and that a clearer understanding of the mechanism of action of H 2S in OSC-mediated anti-cancer activity is required for further application of these compounds in translational medicine. Expand

Diallyl trisulfide, a constituent of processed garlic, inactivates Akt to trigger mitochondrial translocation of BAD and caspase-mediated apoptosis in human prostate cancer cells.
TLDR
It is demonstrated that DATS-induced apoptosis in human prostate cancer cells is mediated, at least in part, by inactivation of Akt signaling axis. Expand
The role of reactive oxygen species (ROS) production on diallyl disulfide (DADS) induced apoptosis and cell cycle arrest in human A549 lung carcinoma cells.
TLDR
It is reported that DADS-induced cell cycle arrest at G2/M and apoptosis in human A549 lung cancer cells in a time- and dose-dependent manner and oxidative stress modulates cell proliferation and cell death induced by DADS. Expand
Effects of allyl sulfur compounds and garlic extract on the expression of Bcl-2, Bax, and p53 in non small cell lung cancer cell lines
TLDR
DADS was found to be more effective in inducing apoptosis on NSCLC and modulation of apoptosis-associated cellular proteins by DAS, DADS and garlic extract may be the mechanism for apoptosis which merit further investigation as potential chemoprevention agents. Expand
Molecular targets of cancer chemoprevention by garlic-derived organosulfides
TLDR
Current knowledge on molecular targets of cancer chemoprevention by OSC is summarized to induce apoptosis via the intrinsic pathway by altering the ratio of the Bcl-2 family of proteins both in cell culture and in in vivo models. Expand

TLDR
Since garlic and its constituents can suppress carcinogen formation, carcinogen bioactivation, and tumor proliferation it is imperative that biomarkers be established to identify which individuals might benefit most and what intakes can occur with ill consequences. Expand
Diallyl trisulfide-induced G2–M phase cell cycle arrest in human prostate cancer cells is caused by reactive oxygen species-dependent destruction and hyperphosphorylation of Cdc25C
TLDR
The results of the present study indicate that DATS-induced G2–M phase cell cycle arrest in human prostate cancer cells is caused by ROS-mediated destruction and hyperphosphorylation of Cdc25C. Expand
Checkpoint Kinase 1 Regulates Diallyl Trisulfide-induced Mitotic Arrest in Human Prostate Cancer Cells*

The results of the present study suggest existence of a checkpoint kinase 1-dependent mechanism for diallyl trisulfide-induced mitotic arrest in human prostate cancer cells. Expand
Diallyl disulfide-induced G2/M arrest of human gastric cancer MGC803 cells involves activation of p38 MAP kinase pathways.
TLDR
DADS-induced G2/M arrest of MGC803 cells involves activation of p38 MAP kinase pathways and decreased Cdc25C protein expression by p38MAPK played a crucial role in G2-M arrest after treatment with DADS. Expand

TLDR
Allitridi induced apoptosis through down-regulation of Bcl-2, and increased caspase-3 expression and its activity, and induced cells proliferation in human gastric cancer cell line BGC823. Expand

TLDR
A host of studies provides compelling evidence that garlic and its organic allyl sulfur components are effective inhibitors of the cancer process and must be viewed as part of the entire diet, since several dietary constituents can influence the degree of protection. Expand
