Protein p21(Cip1/Waf1) is a cyclin-dependent kinase inhibitor, which is important in the response of cells to genotoxic stress and a major transcriptional target of p53 protein. Based on the localization, p21(Cip1/Waf1) protein executes various functions in the cell. In the nucleus p21(Cip1/Waf1) binds to and inhibits the activity of cyclin dependent(More)
PURPOSE Mesenchymal stem cells isolated from bone marrow (BM-MSC) and periodontal ligament (PLSC) are cells with high proliferative potential and ability to self-renewal. Characterization of these cells under genotoxic stress conditions contributes to the assessment of their prospective usage. The aim of our study was to evaluate changes in BM-MSC and PLSC(More)
Adult human dental pulp contains stem cells (DPSCs) that are capable of differentiation into osteoblasts, odontoblasts, adipocytes, and neuronal-like cells. Because these cells have potential use in tissue regeneration, herein we characterized the response of DPSC lines to ionizing radiation (IR). These DPSC lines have been developed from the extracted(More)
The aim of our work was to evaluate peripheral blood lymphocyte subsets as in vitro indicators of the received dose of ionizing radiation (biodosimetric markers) in the range of 3-20 Gy and to determine the appropriate time interval, during which a dose-dependent induction of apoptosis occurs upon gamma irradiation. In lymphocyte subsets characterized by(More)
Valproic acid (VA), a histone deacetylase inhibitor (HDACI), in vitro induces differentiation of promyelocyte leukemia cell (HL-60) and proliferation arrest and apoptosis of various leukemia cell lines. In MOLT-4 cells (human T lymphocyte leukemia) the cell cycle arrest is caused by 2 mM VA, while 4 mM VA induces mainly apoptosis. In our work we studied(More)
AIM To determine the response of dental pulp stem cells (DPSCs) to DNA-damaging cytostatic cisplatin and compare it with the response of normal human dermal fibroblasts (HDFs). METHODOLOGY Dental pulp stem cells were exposed to 5, 10, 20 or 40 μmol L(-1) of cisplatin. The proliferation of affected cells was assessed by a Z2 Counter and viability was(More)
This work compares effect of histondeacetylase inhibitor, valproic acid (VA), on proliferation, differentiation and apoptosis induction in two human leukemic cell lines: HL-60 (human promyleocytic leukemia, p53 negative) and MOLT-4 (human T-lymphocyte leukemia, p53 wild type). Incubation with VA caused decrease in percentage of cells in S phase of cell(More)
Ataxia-telangiectasia mutated kinase (ATM) is a DNA damage-inducible protein kinase, which phosphorylates plethora of substrates participating in DNA damage response. ATM significance for the cell faith is undeniable, since it regulates DNA repair, cell-cycle progress, and apoptosis. Here we describe its main signalling targets and discuss its importance in(More)
ATM kinase (ATM) is essential for activation of cell cycle check points and DNA repair in response to ionizing radiation (IR). In this work we studied the molecular mechanisms regulating DNA repair and cell death in human T-lymphocyte leukemic cells, MOLT-4. Apoptosis was evaluated by flow-cytometric detection of annexin V. Early apoptotic cells were(More)
The main aim of this study was to compare the reaction of quiescent and proliferating, i.e. phytohemagglutinin (PHA)-stimulated, human peripheral blood mononuclear cells (PBMCs) to gamma-radiation, and analyse changes of proteins related to repair of DNA damage and apoptosis, such as gammaH2A.X, p53, p53 phosphorylation at serines-15 and -392, and p21 and(More)
