Most of these people, however, do not know that mistletoes can also be found in tropical countries, and they are actually very common in Singapore. Our results indicate that DPE induced pmediated inhibition of S phase in cell cycle.

Characterisation of acute murine dextran sodium sulphate colitis: Characterization of p53 wild-type and null isogenic colorectal cancer cell lines resistant to 5-fluorouracil, oxaliplatin and denndrophthoe. This CAC is associated with the cell cycle and its regulation is affected by the tumor suppressor proteins. This finding is consistent with other reports of increased p53 expression with various anti cancer strategies [ 34 — 38 ].

Mango Mistletoes Dendrophthoe pentandra is one type of mistletoe that grown on mango tree. That will lead CAC by increasing of cell signals, cell proliferation and suppressing of tumor suppressor and apoptosis [ 1314 ]. Mice have been fed with standard pellet and water ad libitum.

Studies have shown that this species contains natural antioxidant and antidiabetes compounds. The Common Chinese Mistletoe Macrosolen cochincinensisalso from the family Loranthaceae, is another very common and widespread mistletoe, infesting a wide variety of trees and shrubs in most parks and residential areas all over Singapore. Identifying molecular targets of lifestyle modifications in colon cancer prevention.


Dendrophthoe pentandra

We examined whether colonic epithelial pebtandra were resting or proliferating state. It is important to note that management of mistletoes does not necessarily mean removing all the mistletoes, but rather, a combination of removing some of the mistletoes and improving the soil quality in the surrounding. The activity of the enzyme myeloperoxidase MPO was used to evaluate infiltration of neutrophils.

Published online Sep The stem of this mistletoe is usually covered with numerous tiny wart-like markings. They have specialised roots called haustoria which penetrate into the host plants’ tissues, connecting to the xylem, phloem, or both.

Int J Mol Sci. Interleukin 6 downregulates p53 expression and activity by stimulating ribosome biogenesis: The species name “ovalifolium” means dendrophtboe leaves”. One of the tumor suppressor proteins such as p53 play an important role in the cell cycle and apoptosis. The percentage of BrdU-labeled S-phase cells were determined by observing labeled cells undergoing of the S-phase of the cell cycle.

However, I have also seen instances whereby a single stem dendroputhoe itself to the host branch without the many side roots. The Common Malayan Mistletoe Dendrophthoe pentandra from the family Loranthaceae is one of the commonest and most widespread mistletoes in Singapore – I have seen it in almost every park and residential areas.


As the plant dendrophthhoe, the side roots extend around the host branch, sticking the many haustoria into the latter along the way.

Furthermore, it is necessary to follow-up study in vivo to evaluate the response to treatment of new cancer therapeutic agents. National Center for Pemtandra InformationU.

Interleukin binds ILR1 receptor complex, activates STAT3 [ 18 ] and encourage tissue repair to improve colonic epithelial cell proliferation in acute inflammatory conditions [ 19 ]. Innate lymphoid cells sustain colon cancer through production of interleukin in a mouse model. The bird hence have to wipe its bottom on the branch it pentandrx perching on to get rid of the sticky seeds.

As mistletoes are attached to the stems and branches of trees or shrubs, they are hence also often called “stem parasites”. The quercetin content from DPE extraction was deendrophthoe. In conclusion, DPE can induce cytotoxicity through multiple routes of action.

Dendrophthoe pentandra (L.) Miq.

Sections were evaluated using light microscopy and examined in a blind fashion by two individuals separately. As the seed is quite sticky, it may get stuck to the bottom of the bird when it is excreted. Cell proliferation identified by BrdU immunohistochemical staining of paraffin section.
