Changes of mitochondrial respiration, mitochondrial content and cell size after induction of apoptosis in leukemia cells.


Mitochondrial damage with release of cytochrome c is implicated in cell death signalling pathways. To examine mitochondrial function in apoptotic cells, we applied high-resolution respirometry to human leukemia cells arrested in the G1- and S-phase by exposure to the glucocorticoid dexamethasone and nucleotide analogue gemcitabine. At 30% apoptosis… (More)
