Previous reports have suggested that dimethyl sulfoxide (DMSO) may be a useful reversible G1 arresting agent for synchronizing Raji Burkitt's lymphoma cells (K. Takase et al. (1992) Cell Growth Differ. 3, 515-521; M. Sawai et al. (1990) Exp. Cell Res. 187, 4-10). We have therefore critically evaluated several aspects of DMSO's effects using Daudi and Ramos Burkitt's lymphoma (BL) cells. In BL cells starved in the presence or absence of DMSO for 4 to 6 days (approximately four to six doubling… CONTINUE READING
