Health To Be or Not to Be??
that is the question! Drug Discovery From Natural Products Main topic: Breast Cancer for using Cell line Cancer Cells are
Difficult to Target for
They are very SIMILAR to normal cells in many aspects

but NOT Impossible FOR
They are also DIFFERNT from normal cells in many other ways THE MORE DIFFERENCES ARE DISCOVERED


finding a specific chemical in a "PLANT" cell to target a specific pathway or molecule particularly in a malicious "ANIMAL" cell, looks far improbable !

But on the other hand:

Thousands of plant species containing thousands of primary and secondary chemical beside thousands of pathways have altered in cancer cells has made this approach practical!! Jering (seed and pericarp) Putat Curry Borage Organic Solvents
Ethyl Acetate
Water 5 x 4 = 20 extracts Antioxidant Assays

Secondary Compounds Evaluation
TFC MTT assay

Active extracts are identified

IC50 is calculated HPLC & LC-MS

Extract profile
Identification Pathway probable suggestion Identification of
anticancer activity gene expression Protein expression Enzyme activity Active Compound breakdown Improve our underestang of Medicinal plants
in terms of
Antioxidant Activity
Antiproliferation Activity
Anticancer Activity
Their influence on gene/protein expression

Maysam Hafezparast Mavaddat model for
bioactivity directed assays Method:
Plants are dried,
Grinded and
Sequencial Extraction
method Antioxidants Benefits
Protects cell from probable damage caused by free radicals, e.g. DNA damage
Promote faster recovery of disease
Prevent premature aging
Improve immune system function
Many exhibit anticancer properties For Better Understanding of Our Medicinal Plants Objective #1: investgation of the Antioxidant Activity of Obtained Extracts Bioactivity Test & Microscopical Observations Objective #11: Investigation of Bioactivity
of the plant extracts on normal and cancer cells bioactivity?
Anti-Cancer effect Objective #111: Isolation and Identification of active compound/compounds if any! Antioxidant Assays Proliferation Assays Few Extracts (eg. 4)
for Further Assays will be selected Bioassay Guided (eg. MTT) Objective #1V eg. Microarray, real-time PCR e.g. 2-D gel protein profiling, Western blotting, ELISA e.g. Caspase family activity e.g. using recombinant enzymes etc, Big Six of becoming a cancer cell

1- Self-sufficiency in proliferative growth signals
2- Insensitivity to growth inhibitory signals
3- Evasion of apoptosis
4-Acquisition of limitless replicative potential
5-Induction of angiogenesis
6-Induction of invasion and Metastasis Cancer is a leading cause of DEATH One of the reasons that cancer researches are so prized is References References: • Hsu, S. H., Tsai, T. R., Lin, C.
