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.

Elevation in the Counts of IL-35-Producing B Cells Infiltrating into Lung Tissue in Mycobacterial Infection Is Associated with the Downregulation of Th1/Th17 and Upregulation of Foxp3+Treg

Purified B cells from such patients generated more IL-35 after stimulation by antigens of Mycobacterium tuberculosis and secreted more IL-10.

Dental Follicle Stem Cells Rescue the Regenerative Capacity of Inflamed Rat Dental Pulp through a Paracrine Pathway

Researchers focused on the paracrine effects of rat dental follicle stem cells (DFSCs) on the inflammation and regeneration of rat injured dental pulp to detect whether DFSCs are a potential candidate for mesenchymal stem cell-based minimally invasive vital pulp therapy.

Suppressive Myeloid Cells Are Expanded by Biliary Tract Cancer-Derived Cytokines In Vitro and Associate with Aggressive Disease

Activated signaling pathways and cytokine production were evaluated in a panel of human biliary tract cancer (BTC) cell lines. Human peripheral blood mononuclear cells were cultured with BTC supernatants, with and without cytokine neutralising antibodies, and analysed by flow cytometry or immunoblot.

Overexpression of miR-382 Sensitizes Hepatocellular Carcinoma Cells to γδ T Cells through Inhibiting the Expression of C-Flip

As miR-382 was observed to be downregulated in hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC) tissues and cell lines, researchers found that overexpression of miR-382 increased the sensitivity of HCC cells to γδ T cells.

Progesterone Receptor Membrane Component 1 Promotes the Growth of Breast Cancers by Altering the Phosphoproteome and Augmenting EGFR/PI3K/AKT Signalling

Investigators demonstrated that progesterone receptor membrane component 1 played a prominent role in regulating the growth of cancer cells by altering the PI3K/AKT/mTOR and EGFR signalling mechanisms in both ER-positive and TNBC cells.
