  • The synthetic retinoidN-(4-hydroxyphenyl)retinamide (4HPR) is being examined in both chemoprevention and therapy clinical trials. Yet, its mechanism(s) of action is still not fully elucidated. In previous studies, an increase in mitochondrial reactive oxygen species has been proposed as one mechanism through which 4HPR could exert its proapoptotic effects. This study explored whether mitochondrial respiration is required for 4HPR action using human cutaneous squamous cell carcinoma cells and… CONTINUE READING
