Staurosporine as an inhibitor of protein kinases can induce neuronal differentiation in PC12 cells. We investigated the role of extracellular Ca(2+) on staurosporine inducing neurite outgrowth in PC12 cells. The cells were cultured during cell differentiation in the presence of 214 nM staurosporine with 0.0-0.7 Ca(2+)mM as treatment media. We obtained the(More)
Staurosporine as a protein kinases inhibitor induced cell death or neurite outgrowth in PC12 cells. We investigated the involvement of calcium channel and plasma membrane receptors on staurosporine inducing neurite outgrowth in PC12 cells. PC12 cells were preincubated with NMDA receptor inhibitors (1.8 mM ketamine and 1µM MK801, treatment 1) or L-Type(More)
Recently we showed that staurosporine uses the extracellular calcium ions to affect on neurite outgrowth in PC12 cells. However, these mechanisms during staurosporine-induced cell death are still unclear. In this study, we investigated the relation between of reactive oxygen species (ROS) and extracellular calcium entry during staurosporine-induced cell(More)
OBJECTIVES In previous studies, we showed that staurosporine uses intracellular calcium ions to affect cell death in PC12 cells. The bulk release of intracellular excessive Ca(2+) from intracellular sources into cytosol contributes to neuronal apoptotic events, which in turn results in neuronal cell death. However, the mechanisms of Ca(2+)-induced neuronal(More)
