EGFR/FOXO3a/BIM Signaling Pathway Determines Chemosensitivity of BMP4-Differentiated Glioma Stem Cells to Temozolomide

Scientists examined whether epidermal growth factor receptor (EGFR) signaling affects bone morphogenic protein 4-induced differentiation of glioma stem cells and their response to the alkylating drug temozolomide.

Rosmarinic Acid-Induced Apoptosis and Cell Cycle Arrest in Triple-Negative Breast Cancer Cells

Researchers evaluated the effects and mechanisms of rosmarinic acid (RA) in two racially different TNBC cell lines. Results obtained showed that RA significantly caused cytotoxic and antiproliferative effects in both cell lines in a dose- and time-dependent manner. RA induced cell cycle arrest-related apoptosis and altered the expression of many apoptosis-involved genes differently.

Copper (II) Metallodendrimers Combined with Pro-Apoptotic siRNAs as a Promising Strategy Against Breast Cancer Cells

The nanocomplexes formed by metallodendrimers and different siRNA were examined for their zeta potential and size, and by transmission electron microscopy, fluorescence polarisation, circular dichroism, and electrophoresis. The internalisation of dendriplexes was estimated by flow cytometry and confocal microscopy in a human breast cancer cell line, following the ability of these metallodendrimers to deliver the siRNA into the cell. In vitro cell viability experiments have indicated effective interactions between Cu (II) dendrimers and pro-apoptotic siRNAs: Mcl-1 and Bcl-2 in breast cancer cells.
