Due to their growth arrest- and apoptosis-inducing ability, glucocorticoids (GC) are widely used in the therapy of various lymphoid malignancies. Cell death is associated with activation of members of the interleukin-1beta-converting enzyme (ICE) protease/caspase family and, is presumably prevented by the anti-apoptotic protein Bcl-2. To further address the(More)
Induction of apoptosis is the molecular basis for the therapeutic application of glucocorticoids (GC) in human leukemia. The beneficial effect of endocrine therapy is, however, hampered by the occurrence of resistant clones evolving under selective GC pressure. To delineate molecular mechanisms of GC resistance, we PCR amplified, cloned, and sequenced GC(More)
The tumor suppressor p53 has been implicated in apoptosis induction and is mutated in human T-ALL CCRF-CEM cells. To investigate possible consequences of wild-type p53 loss, we reconstituted CEM-C7H2, a subclone of CCRF-CEM, with a temperature-sensitive p53 allele (p53ts). Stably transfected lines expressed high levels of p53ts and shift to the permissive(More)
The aim of the study was to investigate the presence and distribution of PE-11, a peptide derived from chromogranin B, in the rat eye. For this purpose, newborn rats were injected with a single dosage of 50mg/kg capsaicin subcutaneously under the neck fold and after three months, particular eye tissues were dissected and the concentration of PE-11-like(More)
The tumor suppressor p53 has been implicated in gamma irradiation-induced apoptosis. To investigate possible consequences of wild-type p53 loss in leukemia, we studied the effect of a single dose of gamma irradiation upon p53-deficient human T-ALL (acute lymphoblastic leukemia) CCRF - CEM cells. Exposure to 3 - 96 Gy caused p53-independent cell death in a(More)
The effect of herpes virus infection on human dermal microvascular endothelial cells and herpes-virus-1-infected peripheral blood mononuclear cells on human dermal microvascular endothelial cells was studied as a model of herpes-associated erythema multiforme. After infection of human dermal microvascular endothelial cells with native herpes virus and(More)
This study aimed to investigate the presence and distribution of the chromogranin A-derived peptide GE-25 in the rat eye. The molecular form detected by the GE-25 antiserum was evaluated in the rat trigeminal ganglion, retina and remaining tissues of the rat eye by means of Western blots and the distribution pattern of GE-25-like immunoreactivity was(More)
