There has been an enormous interest in the literature that phyto-compounds have therapeutic and beneficial effects in various diseases including inflammatory associated arthritis, diabetes, hypertension, parasitic infections, and cancer. The leaves from the tropical tree Annona Muricata, also known as Graviola have been reported to have positive and effective properties against many of the above mentioned diseases. Cancer still remains the number one killer in the Western nations and most… Expand
Annonacin promotes selective cancer cell death via NKA-dependent and SERCA-dependent pathways
TLDR
The results demonstrated that GLE can promote selective cancer cell death via inhibiting NKA and SERCA, and thus can be considered as a potential novel treatment for cancer. Expand
Antiproliferative activity of ionic liquid-graviola fruit extract against human breast cancer (MCF-7) cell lines using flow cytometry techniques.
TLDR
In vitro antiproliferative effects and apoptotic events of the ionic liquid extract of Graviola fruit (IL-GFE) on MCF-7 breast cancer cells and their cytokinetics behaviour are investigated to observe their potential as a therapeutic alternative in cancer treatment. Expand
Hepatic and Renal Protective Effects of Annona muricata Leaf and Fruit Extracts on Ehrlich Ascites Carcinoma in Mice
