Melanin as a target for melanoma chemotherapy: pro-oxidant effect of oxygen and metals on melanoma viability.
Melanoma cells have a poor means to mediate oxidative stress, which can be attributed to constitutive abnormalities of their melanosomes. We hypothesize that disorganization of the melanosomes will permit chemical concentrating on of the melanin inside. Chemical research present that beneath oxidative circumstances, artificial melanins display elevated metallic affinity and a susceptibility to redox biking…Read More
Allium sativum Lectin (ASA)
Resume The immunomodulatory proteins present in garlic have recently been shown to be identical to the garlic lectins ASA I and ASA II [Clement F, Pramod SN, Venkatesh YP. In t. Immunopharmacol. 2010; 10: 316-324]. In this study, the stability of garlic lectins has been examined as a function of pH, temperature, and denaturants in…Read More
