Chitosan-mediated synthesis of biogenic silver nanoparticles (AgNPs), nanoparticle characterisation and in vitro assessment of anticancer activity in human hepatocellular carcinoma HepG2 cells.
The biopolymer chitosan is at present in widespread use due to its nontoxicity, biocompatibility and biodegradability. Subsequently, on this examine, chitosan extracted from shrimp shells was used to synthesise biogenic silver nanoparticles (AgNPs). UV-visible spectrophotometry of lowered silver nanoparticles within the colloidal answer confirmed a single peak at 400 nm, confirming the formation of AgNPs.…Read More
Co-Overexpression of TWIST1-CSF1 Is a Common Event in Metastatic Oral Cancer and Drives Biologically Aggressive Phenotype
Invasive oral squamous cell carcinoma (OSCC) is usually ulcerated and closely infiltrated by pro-inflammatory cells. We carried out a genome-wide profiling of tissues from OSCC sufferers (early versus superior levels) with 10 years follow-up. Co-amplification and co-overexpression of TWIST1, a transcriptional activator of epithelial-mesenchymal-transition (EMT), and colony-stimulating factor-1 (CSF1), a serious chemotactic agent for tumor-associated macrophages…Read More
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
