Oxidative stress (OS) is an indispensable condition to ensure genomic instability in cancer cells. In breast cancer (BC), redox alterations have been widely characterized, but since this process results from a chain of inflammatory events, the causal molecular triggers remain to be identified. In this context, we used a microarray approach to inves...
Current drug targets
Peroxisomal proliferator receptor gamma (PPARγ) is a class of nuclear hormone receptor family involved in insulin sensitization. In addition, PPARγ has a key role in the protection against oxidative stress and inflammation through regulation of NFkappaB levels and crosstalk with the Nrf2 pathway. Also, its role in the modulation of immune response ...

Background The Nuclear Factor kappaB (NF-kB) family consists of transcription factors that play a complex and essential role in the regulation of immune responses and inflammation. NF-kB has recently generated considerable interest as it has been implicated in human cancer initiation, progression and resistance to treatment. In the present comprehe...

Saliva has a potential impact on inflammation of dental pulp fibroblasts in vitro but not when cells are embedded in the intrinsic extracellular matrix of the explant tissue.
Astrocytes, the most abundant glial cell population in the central nervous system, have important functional roles in the brain as blood brain barrier maintenance, synaptic transmission or intercellular communications. Numerous studies suggested that astrocytes exhibit a functional and morphological high degree of plasticity. For example, following...

Wnt/β-catenin signaling plays a crucial role in the regulation of colon tissue regeneration and the development of colon tumors. Under physiological conditions, β-catenin activity is tightly controlled. However, the majority of sporadic forms of colorectal cancer are characterized by inactivation of the tumor suppressor gene APC due to loss of hete...
