Control of ceramide-induced apoptosis by IGF-1: involvement of PI-3 kinase, caspase-3 and catalase


Insulin-like growth factor-1 (IGF-1) inhibited N-acetylsphingosine (C2-ceramide)-induced HL-60 cell apoptosis via relieving oxidative damage. This inhibitory action of IGF-1 was blocked by a phosphatidylinositol-3 (PI-3) kinase inhibitor wortmannin and enhanced by overexpression of the p110 catalytic subunit of PI-3 kinase. Either IGF-1 pretreatment or PI-3… (More)
