AbstractFenretinide, a synthetic retinoid, is known to induce apoptosis in various cancer cells. However, the mechanism by which fenretinide induces apoptosis remains unclear. The current study examines the mechanisms of fenretinide-induced apoptosis in human hepatoma cells. The induction of Nur77 and the cytoplasmic distribution of Nur77 induced by fenretinide were positively correlated with the apoptotic effect of fenretinide in HCC cells. The sensitivity of Huh-7 cells was related to Nur77 translocation an…
scite is a Brooklyn-based startup that helps researchers better discover and evaluate scientific articles through Smart Citations–citations that display the context of the citation and describe whether the article provides supporting or contrasting evidence. scite is used by researchers from dozens of countries and is funded in part by the National Science Foundation and the National Institute of Drug Abuse of the National Institutes of Health.
