The carcinogenesis of human papillomaviruses type 16 (HPV‐16) is mainly due to its two oncoproteins, E6 and E7. Their carcinogenic features in term of their relationship with Bcl‐2 family are still unclear. We thus aimed to analyze the expression of Bcl‐2 family members, Bcl‐2, Bax, and Bak in laryngeal cancer cells transfected with the E6 or E7 and to determine the sensitivity of these cells to apoptotic stimuli. We employed two human laryngeal cancer cell lines, UMSCC12 and UMSCC11A in this… 
Immunocytochemical Expression of BAX and BAK Proteins in Cervical Smears of Women Positive for HPV Types: A Study of 120 Cases
TLDR
This study indicates that although in several published studies there is evidence of HPV oncoproteins affecting the expression of Bax and Bak on squamous cells, this effect is not apparent by immunocytochemical protein staining.
Recent advances in the study of HPV-associated carcinogenesis
TLDR
Some recent findings on HPV-associated carcinogenesis, such as miRNAs in HPV- associated cancers, implication of stem cells in the biology and therapy of HPV-positive cancers, HPV vaccines, targeted therapy of cervical cancer, and drug treatment for HPV-induced intraepithelial neoplasias are summarized.
Evaluation of the anticancer potential of a sulphonamide carbonic anhydrase IX inhibitor on cervical cancer cells
TLDR
S-1 was able to induce apoptosis of cervical cancer cells and is a possible candidate for future anticancer studies.
Agomelatine and Duloxetine Synergistically Modulates Apoptotic Pathway by Inhibiting Oxidative Stress Triggered Intracellular Calcium Entry in Neuronal PC12 Cells: Role of TRPM2 and Voltage-Gated Calcium Channels
TLDR
Results of current study suggest that the agomelatine and duloxetine are useful against apoptotic cell death and oxidative stress in PC-12 cells, which seem to be dependent on mitochondrial damage and increased levels of intracellular Ca2+ through activation of TRPM2 and voltage-gated Ca2- channels.
Cell Selective Apoptosis Induced by Polymorphic Alteration of Self-Assembled Silica Nanowebs.
TLDR
The results showed that the therapeutic functionality of the SNW-plated template can be elucidated via the endocytosis of amorphous SNWs, and it is expected that these findings will provide new insights and opportunities for designing and engineering novel cell-material interfaces for advanced biomedical applications in cancer research.

Human papillomavirus type 16 E6 and E7 oncoproteins upregulate c-IAP2 gene expression and confer resistance to apoptosis
TLDR
Upregulation of c-IAP2 by E6 and E7 may confer resistance to apoptosis that is necessary for sustained growth of some HPV16- and HPV18-positive cancer cells.
The E7 protein of human papillomavirus type 16 sensitizes primary human keratinocytes to apoptosis
TLDR
The results indicate that the apoptosis of normal and E7-expressing keratinocytes is differentially affected by E 6 expression and that E7, when unaccompanied by E6, sensitizes keratinocyte to apoptosis.
Apoptosis in human papillomavirus16 E7-, but not E6-immortalized human uroepithelial cells.
TLDR
It is suggested that E7 immortalization primes HUC for apoptosis in response to gamma radiation, and that this enhanced apoptotic response is p53 dependent.
Human papillomavirus type 16 E7 protein sensitizes cervical keratinocytes to apoptosis and release of interleukin-1α
TLDR
High level expression of the HPV-16 E7 protein sensitizes keratinocytes to apoptosis which results in release of IL-1α, a multifunctional cytokine that promotes inflammation, tissue remodeling and epithelial hyperplasia.
Human papillomavirus type 16 E7 protein sensitizes cervical keratinocytes to apoptosis and release of interleukin-1alpha.
TLDR
High level expression of the HPV-16 E7 protein sensitizes keratinocytes to apoptosis which results in release of IL-1alpha, a multifunctional cytokine that promotes inflammation, tissue remodeling and epithelial hyperplasia.
Human papillomavirus (HPV) E6 interactions with Bak are conserved amongst E6 proteins from high and low risk HPV types.
TLDR
The E6 proteins from HPV-18, HPV-16 and HPV-11 can all bind to Bak in vitro, stimulate its degradation in vivo and reduce Bak-induced apoptosis, indicating that the ability of HPV to circumvent the apoptosis induced by Bak may contribute to the oncogenic potential of the virus.
Downregulation of Bax mRNA expression and protein stability by the E6 protein of human papillomavirus 16.
TLDR
E6 aa 120-132 were shown to be necessary for Bax destabilization and, more importantly, for abrogating the ability of Bax to induce cellular apoptosis, highlighting the functional consequences of the E6-induced alterations in Bax expression.
The E6 protein of human papillomavirus type 16 binds to and inhibits co‐activation by CBP and p300
TLDR
It is shown that the E6 protein from the oncogenic human papillomavirus type 16 (HPV‐16) binds to three regions (C/H1, C/H3 and the C‐terminus) of both CBP and p300, independent of proteins known to bind the co‐activators, such as p53.
Papillomaviruses Causing Cancer: Evasion From Host-Cell Control in Early Events in Carcinogenesis
TLDR
Modifications in host-cell genes, most likely engaged in the control of HPV gene expression in proliferating cells, emerge as important events in HPV-mediated carcinogenesis.
