Curcumin Suppresses Cell Proliferation and Triggers Apoptosis in Vemurafenib-Resistant Melanoma Cells by Downregulating the EGFR Signaling Pathway

Vemurafenib-resistant A375.S2 cells were established, and the functional mechanism of the epidermal growth factor receptor (EGFR), serine–threonine kinase, and the extracellular signal-regulated kinase signaling induced by curcumin was investigated in A375.S2/VR cells in vitro.

Valproic Acid Disables the Nrf2 Anti-Oxidant Response in Acute Myeloid Leukemia Cells Enhancing Reactive Oxygen Species-Mediated Killing

The authors demonstrated that addition of a commonly used anti-epileptic, valproic acid to low dose bezafibrate and medroxyprogesterone acetate (BaP) enhanced killing of acute myeloid leukemia (AML) cell lines/primary AML cells to levels similar to high dose BaP.

CPT2 Downregulation Triggers Stemness and Oxaliplatin Resistance in Colorectal Cancer via Activating the ROS/Wnt/β-Catenin-Induced Glycolytic Metabolism

Researchers analyzed carnitine palmitoyltransferase 2 (CPT2) expression in colorectal cancer (CRC) tissues and cells. CPT2 was overexpressed in CRC cell lines, and its effects and molecular mechanism on the proliferation, glycolysis, stemness, and oxaliplatin sensitivity were investigated.
