DOWNREGULATION OF SIGNALLING MOLECULES INVOLVED IN ANGIOGENESIS OF PROSTATE CANCER CELL LINE (PC-3) BY KOMBUCHA (LYOPHILIZED)
By Thummala Srihari, Ramachandran Arunkumar, Jagadeesan Arunakaran, Uppala Satyanarayana
Kombucha is a fermented tea beverage produced by fermenting sugared black tea with tea fungus (kombucha). Prostate cancer, like other solid tumors, is also angiogenesis-dependent. The development of prostate cancer is a multi-step process, advancing from high-grade prostatic intraepithelial ...

ENHANCEMENT OF BIOCELLULOSE PRODUCTIVITY THROUGH OPTIMIZATION OF CULTURAL CONDITIONS AND GAMMA RADIATION
By Mohamed M. Roushdy, Abbas A. El-Ghamery, Ali A. Hammad, Salwa A. Abou EL-Nour, Nasser H. Mohammad
The optimum fermentation conditions for the production of biocellulose (BC) by the isolated strain Komagataeibacter rhaeticus K were determined. The isolate gave the highest cellulose production when grown on glucose ethanol medium (GEM) and was able to produce cellulose at 20-35°C with a ...

GROWTH INHIBITION AND INDUCTION OF APOPTOSIS IN HUMAN BLADDER CANCER CELLS INDUCED BY FERMENTED CITRUS KOMBUCHA
By Chung-I Kim, Seung-Shick Shin, Sung-Soo Park
Kombucha is a slightly sour beverage fermented by symbiotic micro-organisms, including bacteria and yeasts. In this study, we examined the biological activities of citrus Kombucha (CK) produced by the addition of citrus extract to the original Kombucha (K). After fermentation for 10 days, ...
