Anti-Cancer Activity of a 2,5-Substituted Pyrimidine
This technology is a novel class of compounds that induce apoptosis in cancerous cells. BackgroundARR molecules (adamantyl-substituted retinoid-related) are a unique class of compounds which have been found to induce apoptosis, or cell death, in a large number of tumor types. SHP plays a role in cellular proliferation. Molecules that Interfere wi...

Antibodies to a Novel Cell Cycle and Apoptosis Regulatory Protein (CARP) -1
Wayne State University researchers have identified a novel cDNA which encodes a pro-apoptotic protein called CARP-1 (Cell Cycle and Apoptosis Regulatory Protein-1), which is expressed in many cancer cell types including breast and colon carcinoma cells. This novel cDNA can be used as a diagnostic and prognostic tool for many types of cancer. Bac...
