Treatment of human promyelocytic leukemia HL-60 cells with phorbol esters ultimately induces the differentiation of these cells along the monocyte/macrophage lineage, whereas treatment with retinoic acid or DMSO induces granulocytic/neutrophillic differentiation. In this study, we demonstrate the disparate fates of HL-60 cells treated with the phorbol ester(More)
The plant alkaloid camptothecin and three camptothecin derivatives were used to study responses of human malignant melanoma (BRO) cells xenografted in immunodeficient (nude) mice. Camptothecin and its derivatives 9-nitro-20(S)-camptothecin and 9-amino-20(S)-camptothecin inhibited growth of tumors and caused regression in all tumor-bearing mice. Tumor(More)
The human leukemic cell lines HL60 and K562, were induced to differentiate terminally by chemical agents. The isoenzyme patterns of lactate dehydrogenase (LD) in the cells before and after differentiation were determined electrophoretically on agarose gels. In general, treatment of the leukemic cells with inducers of differentiation resulted in a(More)
