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
Background Recombinant adenoviruses have enormous potential in both research and therapeutic applications. There are numerous advantages in using adenovirus to introduce genetic material into host cells. The range of permissive host cells is very wide. The virus has been used to infect many types of mammalian cells (both replicative and non-replicative) for high expression of…Read More
