Anti-inflammatory and immune-modulating effects of rice callus suspension culture (RCSC) and bioactive fractions in an in vitro inflammatory bowel disease model.
Background: Rice Callus Suspension Culture (RCSC) has been shown to exhibit potent antiproliferative activity in multiple cancer cell lines. RCSC and its bioactive compounds can fill the need for drugs with no side effects. ...
Nutrient enhancement of chickpea grown with plant growth promoting bacteria in local soil of Bathinda, Northwestern India
Plant growth promoting bacteria (PGPB) enhance crop productivity as part of green technology to reduce the use of chemical fertilizers. They also have the capability to enhance macro- and micronutrient content of plants. ...
Exosomes from nischarin-expressing cells reduce breast cancer cell motility and tumor growth
(American Association for Cancer Research Inc., 2019)
Exosomes are small extracellular microvesicles that are secreted by cells when intracellular multivesicular bodies fuse with the plasma membrane. We have previously demonstrated that Nischarin inhibits focal adhesion ...
Anti-inflammatory Effects of Northern Highbush Blueberry Extract on an In Vitro Inflammatory Bowel Disease Model
Blueberry anthocyanins have the ability to efficiently reach the GI tract and exhibit a broad range of biochemical effects. In the context of inflammatory bowel disease (IBD), they remain a promising complement to current ...
Bulbine frutescens phytochemical inhibits notch signaling pathway and induces apoptosis in triple negative and luminal breast cancer cells
(Elsevier Inc., 2019)
Breast cancer (BCa) is the most commonly diagnosed lethal cancer in women worldwide. Notch signaling pathway is directly linked to BCa recurrence and aggressiveness. Natural remedies are becoming a prime choice to overcome ...
Lysine and ?-Aminoisobutyric Acid Conjugated Bioinspired Polydopamine Surfaces for the Enhanced Antibacterial Performance of the Foley Catheter
(American Chemical Society, 2019)
Microbial adhesion onto implanted devices was reduced by the immobilization of amino acid lysine and ?-aminoisobutyric acid to polydopamine functionalized PET films and Foley catheters. The polydopamine functionalized film ...
Dihydropyrimidine dehydrogenase in the metabolism of the anticancer drugs
(Springer Verlag, 2019)
Cancer caused by fundamental defects in cell cycle regulation leads to uncontrolled growth of cells. In spite of the treatment with chemotherapeutic agents of varying nature, multiple resistance mechanisms are identified ...
Structural insights into the substrate specificity of SP_0149, the substrate-binding protein of a methionine ABC transporter from Streptococcus pneumoniae
(International Union of Crystallography, 2019)
Successful pathogenesis is a cumulative effect of the virulence factors of a pathogen and its capability to efficiently utilize the available nutrients from the host. Streptococcus pneumoniae, a Gram-positive opportunistic ...
