In hematopoietic cells, the Bcr/Abl tyrosine kinase that is encoded by the Philadelphia chromosome translocation both stimulates proliferation and activates an anti-apoptotic program that is associated with a G2/M delay upon exposure to various apoptotic stimuli. We recently reported that the monocyclic monoterpene, perillyl alcohol (POH) selectively induces in Bcr/Abl transformed cells, G0/G1 arrest and apoptosis. Therefore, POH activates anti-proliferative and apoptotic pathways against which… CONTINUE READING
