DNA damage activates nuclear Abl tyrosine kinase to stimulate intrinsic apoptosis in cancer cell lines and mouse embryonic stem cells. To examine the in vivo function of nuclear Abl in apoptosis, we generated Abl-μNLS (μ, mutated in nuclear localization signals) mice. We show here that cisplatin-induced apoptosis is defective in the renal proximal tubule(More)
TNF-Related Apoptosis Inducing Ligand (TRAIL) binds to and activates death receptors to stimulate caspase-8 and apoptosis with higher efficiency in cancer than normal cells but the development of apoptosis resistance has limited its clinical efficacy. We found that stable, but not transient knockdown of the ABL tyrosine kinase enhanced the apoptotic(More)
Knockout serum replacement (KOSR) is a nutrient supplement commonly used to replace serum for culturing stem cells. We show here that KOSR has pro-survival activity in chronic myelogenous leukemia (CML) cells transformed by the BCR-ABL oncogene. Inhibitors of BCR-ABL tyrosine kinase kill CML cells by stimulating pro-apoptotic BIM and inhibiting(More)
