Differential regulation of p53, c-Myc, Bcl-2 and Bax protein expression during apoptosis induced by widely divergent stimuli in human hepatoblastoma cells.

Apoptosis of HepG2 cells triggered by various agents is characterized in an attempt to delineate the common apoptosis signaling pathway in human hepatoma cells. Several hallmarks of apoptosis, including DNA laddering, chromatin condensation and fragmentation, and an apoptosis specific cleavage of 28S and 18S ribosomal RNA were observed after treatment with… CONTINUE READING
