Epidemiological observations have demonstrated that taking aspirin daily exerts an anti-cancer effect. The objective of this study was to determine the effect of the acetyl group of aspirin on the acetylation of proteins in CaCo-2, a carcinoma human cell line, and HCT-116, a human colon cancer cell line.
