1. Apoptosis
  2. Apoptosis


Apoptosis is one of the major pathways of programmed cell death.

Apoptosis or programmed cell death is a critical cellular process for the maintenance of tissue homeostasis and normal development of multicellular organisms. Inappropriate regulation of apoptosis signaling pathways may lead to several diseases including cancer. In tumor cells, the pathways that lead to apoptosis are disrupted or impaired due to which cells undergo malignant transformation.Therefore, targeting critical apoptosis regulators with a goal to induce apoptosis in cancer cells has emerged as an attractive strategy in cancer chemotherapy. DNA topoisomerase (topo) is recognized as an important target in anticancer drug discovery.

ROS production in cancer cells regulates cellular growth, cell signaling and synthesis of important substances. Furthermore, mitochondria plays an important role for the survival of cancercells, hence disrupting mitochondrial function by small molecules induces apoptosis.
