CARP-1/CCAR1 Functional Mimetics (CFMs): Novel small molecule suppressors of human breast cancer cell growth.
BackgroundCARP-1 (Cell cycle and apoptosis regulator protein) is a regulator of cell growth signaling. CARP-1 plays an important role in apoptosis (cell death) induction in human breast cancer (HBC) cells in the presence of the chemotherapy agent Adriamycin. The researchers have found that CARP-1 inhibits cell growth by binding with the anapha...
