CASPASE EXPRESSION IN ORAL SQUAMOUS CELL CARCINOMA
Background. Apoptosis is a genetically programmed form of cell death, of which caspases are the central components. Methods. By tissue microarray of 229 cases of oral squamous cell carcinoma (OSCC), we analyzed the ...
Role of caspases on cell death, inflammation, and cell cycle in glycerol-induced acute renal failure
(Nature Publishing GroupNew YorkEUA, 2006)
Activity and expression of different members of the caspase family in the rat corpus luteum during pregnancy and postpartum
(American Physiological Society, 2007-11)
Studies were designed to examine the expression and activity of four caspases that contribute to the initial (caspases-2, -8, and -9) and final (caspase-3) events in apoptosis in the rat corpus luteum (CL) during pregnancy ...
Antioxidant dietary deficiency induces caspase activation in chick skeletal muscle cells
(Associação Brasileira de Divulgação Científica, 2003-08-01)
Apoptosis and necrosis are two distinct forms of cell death that can occur in response to different agents and stress conditions. In order to verify if the oxidative stress induced by dietary selenium and vitamin E ...
Involvement of major components from sporothrix schenckii cell wall in the caspase-1 activation, nitric oxide and cytokines production during experimental sporotrichosis
Sporotrichosis is a chronic infection caused by the dimorphic fungus Sporothrix schenckii, involving all layers of skin and the subcutaneous tissue. The role of innate immune toll-like receptors 2 and 4 in the defense ...
Single CpG island methylation is not sufficient to maintain the silenced expression of CASPASE-8 apoptosis-related gene among women with epithelial ovarian cancer
(Elsevier B.V., 2014-02-01)
Despite impressive research efforts, the biology of epithelial ovarian cancer (EOC) remains poorly understood and alterations in the expression of CASPASE-8 contribute to a worse tumor prognosis. This study assesses the ...
Expressão de topoisomerase II alfa e de caspase-3 ativada em lesão intra-epitelial cervical escamosa de baixo grau
(Universidade Federal de São Paulo (UNIFESP), 2008-03-26)
Purpose: To evaluate the correlation between the expression of topoisomerase II alpha, active caspase-3 and infection with human papillomavirus in low-grade cervical intraepithelial lesion and in the normal cervix, and ...
Expression of caspase-2, -3, -8 and -9 proteins and enzyme activity in the corpus luteum of the rat at different stages during the natural estrous cycle
Apoptosis is associated with the regression of the corpus luteum (CL) in many species. Since caspases play a central role in apoptosis, we studied several initiators (-2, -8, and -9) and the main effector (-3) caspase in ...
