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
Vitamin D2 (ergocalciferol) is naturally synthesized from ergosterol by invertebrates, fungi, and plants in response to ultraviolet B irradiation, while vitamin D3 synthesis (cholecalciferol) is uniquely initiated in the skin of vertebrates. During sun exposure, ultraviolet B photons are absorbed
Autophagy is a highly regulated process that is involved in cell growth, development, and death. In autophagy cells destroy their own cytoplasmic components in a very systematic manner and recycle them.

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
Sigma-Aldrich presents an article about how proliferatively active cells require both a source of carbon and of nitrogen for the synthesis of macromolecules. Although a large proportion of tumor cells utilize aerobic glycolysis and shunt metabolites away from mitochondrial oxidative
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
We deliver the broadest selection available of carcinogenic and chemopreventive biochemicals, as well as research reagents and kits for apoptosis, angiogenesis, biomarker identification, metabolomics, and functional genomics.
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.
Immunohistochemistry (IHC) is used to characterize intracellular proteins or various cell surfaces in all tissues. Individual markers or more often panels of various marker proteins can be used to characterize various tumor subtypes, confirm tissue of origin, distinguish metastatic from
