Cancer is known as a group of cells that divide without control and divided into two types, malignant tumor which spread to other parts of the body and benign tumor which not spread and is treated by surgery for example to remove the tumor. Breast cancer is the second cause of death and life-threatening among women worldwide so many kinds of research had been performed to understand and treat breast cancer so many treatments had been discovered to treat breast cancer. Pomegranate and its constituents have been shown to affect cell signaling and pathways involved in inflammation, proliferation, tumorigenesis, and angiogenesis in multiple in vitro studies. Several studies demonstrated that pomegranate extract and juice has anticancer activity in breast cancer cell lines. In this study, MTT assay, cell cycle analysis and real-time PCR were performed to test the anticancer effect of pomegranate phenolic compounds extracted from seeds on GADD45A gene expression in (MDA) breast cancer cells and occurred upregulation to GADD45A tumor suppressor gene and the cell viability is decreased.
