Hormetic dose response to -ascorbic acid as an anti-cancer drug in colorectal cancer cell lines according to SVCT-2 expression.

-Ascorbic acid (vitamin C, AA) exhibits anti-cancer effects with high-dose treatment through the generation of reactive oxygen species (ROS) and selective damage to cancer cells. The anti-cancer effects of -ascorbic acid are determined by sodium-dependent vitamin C transporter 2 (SVCT-2), a transporter of -ascorbic acid. In this study, we demonstrate that -ascorbic acid treatment showed efficient anti-cancer activity in cell lines with high expression levels of SVCT-2 for a gradient concentration of -ascorb...


Targeting Cancer Stem Cells with Dietary Phytochemical - Repositioned Drug Combinations.

The tumor microenvironment is complex with the cancer stem cell (CSC) as a member within its community. This population possesses the capacity to self-renew and to cause cellular heterogeneity of the tumor. CSCs are resistant to conventional anti-proliferative drugs. In order to be curative, it is imperative that CSCs must be eliminated by cancer therapy. A variety of dietary phytochemicals and repositioned drugs can act synergistically with conventional anti-cancer agents. In this review, we advocate the d...

Evaluation of the precision ID mtDNA whole genome panel on two massively parallel sequencing systems.

Sequencing whole mitochondrial genomes by capillary electrophoresis is a costly and time/labor-intensive endeavor. Many of the previous Sanger sequencing-based approaches generated amplicons that were several kilobases in length; lengths that are likely not amenable for most forensic applications. However, with the advent of massively parallel sequencing (MPS) short-amplicon multiplexes covering the entire mitochondrial genome can be sequenced relatively easily and rapidly. Recently, the Precision ID mtDNA ...

Platinated graphene oxide: A nanoplatform for efficient gene-chemo combination Cancer therapy.

N-cadherin in cancer metastasis, its emerging role in haematological malignancies and potential as a therapeutic target in cancer.

In many types of solid tumours, the aberrant expression of the cell adhesion molecule N-cadherin is a hallmark of epithelial-to-mesenchymal transition, resulting in the acquisition of an aggressive tumour phenotype. This transition endows tumour cells with the capacity to escape from the confines of the primary tumour and metastasise to secondary sites. In this review, we will discuss how N-cadherin actively promotes the metastatic behaviour of tumour cells, including its involvement in critical signalling ...

T-Type voltage gated calcium channels: a target in breast cancer?

The purpose of this review article is to discuss the potential of T-type voltage gated calcium channels (VGCCs) as drug targets in breast cancer. Breast cancer, attributable to the different molecular subtypes, has a crucial need for therapeutic strategies to counter the mortality rate. VGCCs play an important role in regulating cytosolic free calcium levels which regulate cellular processes like tumorigenesis and cancer progression. In the last decade, T-type VGCCs have been investigated in breast cancer p...

Combinatorial expression of microtubule-associated EB1 and ATIP3 biomarkers improves breast cancer prognosis.

The identification of molecular biomarkers for classification of breast cancer is needed to better stratify the patients and guide therapeutic decisions. The aim of this study was to investigate the value of MAPRE1 gene encoding microtubule-end binding proteins EB1 as a biomarker in breast cancer and evaluate whether combinatorial expression of MAPRE1 and MTUS1 gene encoding EB1-negative regulator ATIP3 may improve breast cancer diagnosis and prognosis.

MYC Interacts with the G9a Histone Methyltransferase to Drive Transcriptional Repression and Tumorigenesis.

MYC is an oncogenic driver that regulates transcriptional activation and repression. Surprisingly, mechanisms by which MYC promotes malignant transformation remain unclear. We demonstrate that MYC interacts with the G9a H3K9-methyltransferase complex to control transcriptional repression. Inhibiting G9a hinders MYC chromatin binding at MYC-repressed genes and de-represses gene expression. By identifying the MYC box II region as essential for MYC-G9a interaction, a long-standing missing link between MYC tran...

FusionPathway: Prediction of pathways and therapeutic targets associated with gene fusions in cancer.

Numerous gene fusions have been uncovered across multiple cancer types. Although the ability to target several of these fusions has led to the development of some successful anti-cancer drugs, most of them are not druggable. Understanding the molecular pathways of a fusion is important in determining its function in oncogenesis and in developing therapeutic strategies for patients harboring the fusion. However, the molecular pathways have been elucidated for only a few fusions, in part because of the labor-...

Magnetic field-inducible drug-eluting nanoparticles for image-guided thermo-chemotherapy.

Multifunctional nanoparticles integrating cancer cell imaging and treatment modalities into a single platform are recognized as a promising approach; however, their development currently remains a challenge. In this study, we synthesized magnetic field-inducible drug-eluting nanoparticles (MIDENs) by embedding superparamagnetic iron oxide nanoparticles (FeO; SPIONs) and cancer therapeutic drugs (doxorubicin; DOX) in a temperature-responsive poly (lactic-co-glycolic acid) (PLGA) nanomatrix.

Pancreatic Cancer Gene Therapy Delivered by Nanoparticles.

Pancreatic cancer is one of the most lethal forms of cancer and has proven to be difficult to treat through conventional methods, including surgery and chemotherapy. Gene therapy serves as a potential novel treatment to interfere with genes that make this cancer so aggressive, but free nucleic acids have low cell uptake due to their negative charge and are unstable in circulation. Nanoparticles can serve as an effective carrier for a wide variety of gene therapies for pancreatic cancer as they can improve t...

Nearing saturation of cancer driver gene discovery.

Extensive sequencing efforts of cancer genomes such as The Cancer Genome Atlas (TCGA) have been undertaken to uncover bona fide cancer driver genes which has enhanced our understanding of cancer and revealed therapeutic targets. However, the number of driver gene mutations is bounded, indicating that there must be a point when further sequencing efforts will be excessive. We found that there was a significant positive correlation between sample size and identified driver gene mutations across 33 cancers seq...

MR4Cancer: a web server prioritizing master regulators for cancer.

During cancer stage transition, a master regulator (MR) refers to the key gene controlling cancer initiation and progression by orchestrating the associated target genes (termed as its regulon). Due to their inherent importance, MRs can serve as critical biomarkers for cancer diagnosis and prognosis, and therapeutic targets. However, it is challenging to infer key MRs that might explain gene expression profile changes between two groups due to lack of context-specific regulons, whose expression level can co...

A combination of curcumin and oligomeric proanthocyanidins offer superior anti-tumorigenic properties in colorectal cancer.

Combining anti-cancer agents in cancer therapies is becoming increasingly popular due to improved efficacy, reduced toxicity and decreased emergence of resistance. Here, we test the hypothesis that dietary agents such as oligomeric proanthocyanidins (OPCs) and curcumin cooperatively modulate cancer-associated cellular mechanisms to inhibit carcinogenesis. By a series of in vitro assays in colorectal cancer cell lines, we showed that the anti-tumorigenic properties of the OPCs-curcumin combination were supe...

Immunogenomic Landscape Contributes to Hyperprogressive Disease after Anti-PD-1 Immunotherapy for Cancer.

Although PD-1-blocking immunotherapies demonstrate significant therapeutic promise, a subset of the patients could develop hyperprogressive disease (HPD) with accelerated tumor growth after anti-PD1 immunotherapy. To elucidate the underlying mechanisms, we compared the mutational and transcriptional landscapes between the pre- and post-therapy tumors of two patients developing HPD after anti-PD-1 immunotherapy. In post-therapy HPD tumors, somatic mutations were found in known cancer genes, including tumor s...
