Cardiac glycosides (CGs) are approved for the treatment of cardiovascular alterations and their known cellular target is the alpha subunit of the sodium (Na+)/potassium (K+)-ATPase (NKA). Pharmacologically, they represent a well-known generation of drugs for treating cardiovascular problems, thus allowing the investigation of potential dose-depende...

Cancer development is mostly due to a deregulation of cell death as cancer cells become resistant to apoptosis by increasing expression of anti-apoptotic proteins belonging to the Bcl-2 family. Mcl-1 is one anti-apoptotic protein, which is mainly responsible for cancer cell resistance as it is overexpressed by most cancer cell types. Many research ...

Cardiac glycosides (CGs), prescribed to treat cardiovascular alterations, display potent anti-cancer activities. Despite their well-established target, the sodium/potassium (Na + /K +)-ATPase, downstream mechanisms remain poorly elucidated. UNBS1450 is a hemi-synthetic cardenolide derived from 2″-oxovorusharin extracted from the plant Calotropis ...

Molecules targeting pro-inflammatory pathways have demonstrated beneficial effects in cancer treatment. More recently, combination of natural and synthetic anti-inflammatory drugs was suggested as an appealing strategy to inhibit tumor growth. Herein, we show that curcumin, a polyphenol from Curcuma longa and celecoxib induce apoptosis in hematopoi...
