Tripolinolate A as a new bioactive phenolic ester was previously isolated from a halophyte of Tripolium pannonicum. However, the in vitro and in vivo anti-glioma effects and mechanism of tripolinolate A have not been investigated. This study has demonstrated that (1) tripolinolate A inhibited the proliferation of different glioma cells with IC50 values of 7.97 to 14.02 µM and had a significant inhibitory effect on the glioma growth in U87MG xenograft nude mice, (2) tripolinolate A induced apoptosis in glioma cells by downregulating the expressions of antiapoptotic proteins and arrested glioma cell cycle at the G2/M phase by reducing the expression levels of cell cycle regulators, and (3) tripolinolate A also remarkably reduced the expression levels of several glioma metabolic enzymes and transcription factors. All data together suggested that tripolinolate A had significant in vitro and in vivo anti-glioma effects and the regulation of multiple tumor-related regulators and transcription factors might be responsible for the activities of tripolinolate A against glioma.

Malignant glioma is the most common type of brain tumor with poor clinical outcome and survival. Therefore, it is imperative to develop novel therapeutic agents for managing glioma. The aim of this st...
Imagery rehearsal therapy (IRT) is an empirically validated therapy targeting recurring nightmares, for which the mechanisms of action remain poorly understood. The objective of this study was to inve...
Glioma is one of the most devasting tumors and confers dismal prognosis. Long noncoding RNAs(lncRNAs) have emerged as important regulators in various tumors including glioma. A classic lncRNA-H19, whi...
In vitro effect of chlorambucil on human glioma cell lines (SF767 and U87-MG), and human microvascular endothelial cell (HMVEC) and endothelial progenitor cells (ECFCs), in the context of plasma chlorambucil concentrations in tumor-bearing dogs.
The objective of this study was to investigate a possible mechanism of action of metronomic chlorambucil on glioma by studying the in vitro cytotoxicity and anti-angiogenic effects on glioma and endot...
Glioma is one of the most frequent intracranial malignant tumors. Abnormal expression of microRNAs usually contributes to the development and progression of glioma. In the current study, we explored t...

Ultra-violet light B (UVB) therapy has been used by dermatologists to treat psoriasis for decades. Only a few studies have begun to dissect the mechanism of how NB-UVB therapy causes lesio...
Agents used for the treatment or prevention of cardiac arrhythmias. They may affect the polarization-repolarization phase of the action potential, its excitability or refractoriness, or impulse conduction or membrane responsiveness within cardiac fibers. Anti-arrhythmia agents are often classed into four main groups according to their mechanism of action: sodium channel blockade, beta-adrenergic blockade, repolarization prolongation, or calcium channel blockade.
An oral chrysotherapeutic agent for the treatment of rheumatoid arthritis. Its exact mechanism of action is unknown, but it is believed to act via immunological mechanisms and alteration of lysosomal enzyme activity. Its efficacy is slightly less than that of injected gold salts, but it is better tolerated, and side effects which occur are potentially less serious.
An anticonvulsant that is used in a wide variety of seizures. It is also an anti-arrhythmic and a muscle relaxant. The mechanism of therapeutic action is not clear, although several cellular actions have been described including effects on ion channels, active transport, and general membrane stabilization. The mechanism of its muscle relaxant effect appears to involve a reduction in the sensitivity of muscle spindles to stretch. Phenytoin has been proposed for several other therapeutic uses, but its use has been limited by its many adverse effects and interactions with other drugs.
Compounds which inhibit the synthesis of proteins. They are usually ANTI-BACTERIAL AGENTS or toxins. Mechanism of the action of inhibition includes the interruption of peptide-chain elongation, the blocking the A site of ribosomes, the misreading of the genetic code or the prevention of the attachment of oligosaccharide side chains to glycoproteins.
Cognitive mechanism based on expectations or beliefs about one's ability to perform actions necessary to produce a given effect. It is also a theoretical component of behavior change in various therapeutic treatments. (APA, Thesaurus of Psychological Index Terms, 1994)
