Imatinib Mesylate is widely used for the treatment of chronic myelogenous leukaemia (CML), and its effects on CML cells are influenced by several signalling proteins. The research is aimed at determining whether Wnt5a affects the effects of Imatinib Mesylate against BCR-ABL positive CML cells (K562 cells and KU812 cells) and which signalling proteins are(More)
CCN1 plays distinct roles in various tumor types, but little is known regarding the role of CCN1 in leukemia. We analyzed CCN1 protein expression in leukemia cell lines and in AML bone marrow samples. We also evaluated the effects of antibody- or siRNA-mediated inhibition of CCN1 on the growth of two AML cell lines (U937 and Kasumi-1 cells) and on the(More)
γ-catenin plays different roles in different types of tumors, and its role in chronic myeloid leukemia (CML) cells has yet to be identified. In our study, two CML cell lines (K562, KU812) had higher γ-catenin expression levels compared to five types of BCR-ABL-negative leukemia cells. Knockdown of the expression(More)
