Ceramide acts as a mediator of apoptosis in various cell lines, but little is known regarding the molecular mechanism linked to the cell cycle. In the present study, we examined the expression of p27(kip1) and its relationship to apoptosis induced by ceramide. We demonstrated that treatment of HL-60 cells with C6-ceramide resulted in G1 phase elevation(More)
The cyclin-dependent kinase inhibitor p27kip1 (p27) has been implicated in the regulation of cell cycle and apoptosis. Recently, we have demonstrated that ceramide induces apoptotic cell death associated with increase in the level of p27 in HL-60 cells. In the present study, we showed that overexpression of p27 increases ceramide-induced apoptotic cell(More)
