A Study of Alpha and Gamma Tocopherol and Modulation of PPARs: Chemopreventitives in Colon Cancer (2005)

Title:

A Study of Alpha and Gamma Tocopherol and Modulation of PPARs: Chemopreventitives in Colon Cancer

Key words:

gamma-tocopherol, apoptosis, PPAR-gamma

Research Institution:

East Tennessee State University

Location:

Tennessee

Researcher:

Sharon E Campbell

Project Description:

This study was designed to determine if gamma-tocopherol, one of the tocotrienols of vitamin E, induces growth arrest and apoptosis in colon cancer cell lines through a peroxisome proliferator activated receptor (PPAR)-gamma mechanism. This research was based on epidemiological studies suggesting that vitamin E negatively correlates with the incidence of colon cancer, and that the anti-proliferative effects of vitamin E are associated with PPAR-gamma.
