Epigenetics is a term coined to describe changes that are not mutation based but can still be passed on from generation to generation. Genes that are activated or repressed without any change in DNA sequence are epigenetically controlled. Epigenetic modifications
This page reviews some of our newest and most innovative technologies and their specific applications toward cancer research. One is reminded of how complex the disease of cancer is, and how difficult it is to identify one topic that is
What are primary cells? A comprehensive overview of animal and human primary cell lines and media and how they are used in biomedical cell culture applications. Primary cultures are less homogeneous relative to cell lines.
Information on fatty acid synthesis and metabolism in cancer cells. Learn how proliferatively active cells require fatty acids for functions such as membrane generation, protein modification, and bioenergetic requirements. These fatty acids are derived either from dietary sources or are
Our aim was to investigate the dimerization and activation pattern of two receptors, EGFR (ErbB1) and HER2 (ErbB2), in the EGFR-family using breast cancer cell lines and selected colon tissues as model systems.
Ginseng root extract inhibits the proliferation of human cancer cells in vitro, including those that represent many common cancers, such as breast cancer. Ginseng extracts contain over 20 different ginsenosides, saponin glycosides that are biologically active constituents of ginseng. Several
