Forced overexpression of cyclooxygenase-2 (COX-2) in intestinal cells has been shown to be associated with resistance to apoptosis. However, the role of physiologically-induced COX-2 in the regulation of apoptosis remains unclear. In the present study, we examined whether hepatocyte growth...

Synthesis of 6(R)-5,6,7,8-tetrahydrobiopterin (BH(4)), a required cofactor for inducible nitric-oxide synthase (iNOS) activity, is usually coordinately regulated with iNOS expression. In C6 glioma cells, tumor necrosis factor-alpha (TNF-alpha) concomitantly potentiated the stimulation of nitric oxide (NO) and BH(4) production induced...

The activation of ceramide-generating enzymes, the blockade of ceramide degradation, or the addition of ceramide analogues can trigger apoptosis or necrosis in human cancer cells. Moreover, endogenous ceramide plays a decisive role in the killing of neoplastic cells by conventional...

The execution of shock following high dose E. coli lipopolysaccharide (LPS) or bacterial sepsis in mice required pro-apoptotic caspase-8 in addition to pro-pyroptotic caspase-11 and gasdermin D. Hematopoietic cells produced MyD88- and TRIF-dependent inflammatory cytokines sufficient to initiate shock without any...
