Using a human dermal fibroblast cell line in suspension culture, investigators found that high hydrostatic pressure at 50 MPa for ≥ 36 h completely induced fibroblast cell death via apoptosis based on the morphological changes in transmission electron microscopy, reactive oxygen species elevation, caspase activation and phosphatidylserine membrane translocation.

The well-organized, simplistic, and biological route of AgNPs (AgNPs) was synthesized using shrimp shell extracted chitin as reducing, capping and stabilizing factor under the optimized conditions. The anticancer potential of synthesized biogenic AgNPs was evaluated against human hepatocarcinoma cells.

Researchers developed a murine-based engineered cardiac tissues (ECTs) model to investigate cardiac injury produced by advanced glycation end-products (AGEs). One findinf was that AGEs treatment significantly increased the markers of fibrosis (TGF-β, α-SMA, Ctgf, Collagen I-α1, Collagen III-α1, and Fn1) and hypertrophy.

Cell division cycle 6 (Cdc6)-depleted pancreatic cancer cells significantly inhibited cell proliferation and colony formation, delayed G2/M cell cycle progression, and increased expression of p-histone H3 and cyclin A2 levels.
The cytotoxic effect of diltiazem, gemcitabine, and 5-fluorouracil in single and combined forms against PANC-1 and AsPC-1 cells were assayed by MTT. Flow cytometric analysis was used for the determination of cell cycle, apoptosis, and stemness markers in pancreatic cancer cells.

The authors identified a novel dual-target inhibitor, APIO-EE-07, that could block both RSK1 and MSK2 kinase activity in a dose-dependent manner. APIO-EE-07 inhibited cell growth and induced apoptosis and also increased expression of Bax as well as cleaved caspase-3 and -PARP in colon cancer cells by downregulating RSK1 and MSK2 downstream targets, including CREB and ATF1.

CB11 caused cell death via reactive oxygen species-mediated ATM-p53-GADD45α signaling in human non-small-cell lung cancer cells, and diphenyleneiodonium, an NADPH oxidase inhibitor, decreases cell death by inhibiting CB11-mediated ATM signaling.
