Calmodulin Inhibitor-induced Apoptosis was Prevented by Glycogen Synthase Kinase-3 Inhibitors in PC12 Cells

Calmodulin is known to transduce Ca2+ signals by interacting with specific target proteins. In order to determine the role of calmodulin in regulating neuronal survival and death, we examined, whether calmodulin inhibitors induce caspase-dependent apoptotic cell death, and whether glycogen synthase kinase-3 is involved in calmodulin inhibitor-induced cell… CONTINUE READING
