Gangliosides have been known to play a role in the regulation of apoptosis in cancer cells. This study has employed disialyl-ganglioside GD1b to apoptosis in human breast cancer MCF-7 cells using exogenous treatment of the cells with GD1b and endogenous expression of GD1b in MCF-7 cells. First, apoptosis in MCF-7 cells was observed after treatment of GD1b.(More)
In the present study, we isolated pCMAH house-keeping promoter regions (Ph), which are responsible for transcriptional regulation and which are located upstream of the alternative transcript pcmah-2. Luciferase reporter assays using serial construction of each deleted promoter demonstrated that the Ph promoter was highly active in pig-derived kidney PK15.(More)
