Antitumor Potential of the Isoflavonoids (+)- and (-)-2,3,9-Trimethoxypterocarpan: Mechanism-of-Action Studies.
TLDR
A computational study of the interactions of compound (+)-1 and (S)-monastrol, an established, synthetically derived, potent, and cell-permeant inhibitor of mitosis, with the kinesin-type protein Eg5 revealed that both bind to this receptor in a similar manner.
Casearin X exhibits cytotoxic effects in leukemia cells triggered by apoptosis.
Amyrin esters induce cell death by apoptosis in HL-60 leukemia cells.
In vitro and in vivo anticancer properties of cucurbitacin isolated from Cayaponia racemosa
TLDR
Data indicate that these naturally occurring compounds have anticancer potential, and treatment with compound 1 caused an increase in spleen weight and morphological alterations related to immunostimulatory properties.

Antimitotic properties of pterocarpans isolated from Platymiscium floribundum on sea urchin eggs.
TLDR
The antimitotic effects on sea urchin eggs of five known pterocarpans are reported, suggesting that the 2-methoxy substituent can be an important pharmacophoric unit.
Cytotoxic flavonoids from Platymiscium floribundum.
TLDR
Two new isoflavonoids, 7,4'-dimethoxy-isoflavonequinone and 2,4-dihydroxyflavanone (liquiritigenin), were isolated from the heartwood of Platymiscium floribundum and showed cytotoxic activity when evaluated against five human cancer cell lines in vitro.
Features of apoptotic cells measured by flow cytometry.
The present review describes several methods to characterize and differentiate between two different mechanisms of cell death, apoptosis and necrosis. Most of these methods were applied to studies of
Alterations in mitochondrial structure and function are early events of dexamethasone-induced thymocyte apoptosis
TLDR
delta psi m indicates that a drop in delta psi m occurs very early in thymocyte apoptosis, before DNA fragmentation, which is associated with alteration in mitochondrial structure assessed by cytofluorimetric study of NAO uptake in apoptotic cells.
Genistein sensitizes diffuse large cell lymphoma to CHOP (cyclophosphamide, doxorubicin, vincristine, prednisone) chemotherapy.
TLDR
Results show that genistein has growth modulatory effects on WSU-DLCL(2) cells and enhances the antitumor activity of CHOP.
Apoptosis: programmed cell death at a molecular level.
TLDR
How deregulation of apoptosis may contribute to autoimmunity, cancer, and neurodegenerative disorders and strategies some viruses have evolved that interfere with the host's apoptotic pathways are described.
The Evaluation of a Multi-endpoint Cytotoxicity Assay System
TLDR
The multi-endpoint screening system proved to be readily applicable, robust and rapid, and gave reliable toxicity results over a wide range of chemical concentrations.

Flavopiridol, a Novel Cyclin-Dependent Kinase Inhibitor, in Clinical Development
TLDR
Flavopiridol is the first CDK inhibitor to enter clinical trials and displays unique anticancer properties, and does optimal future development of this drug depend on the combination with other chemotherapy.
