Expression of Apoptosis Regulators in Cutaneous Malignant Melanoma 1

Abstract

Metastatic malignant melanoma (MM) is usually incurable and responds poorly to chemotherapy. Because many cytotoxic drugs cause cell death by inducing apoptosis, an imbalance of apoptosis regulatory proteins may contribute to MM treatment resistance. We have previously shown reduced expression of Bcl-2 protein, a negative regulator of apoptosis, in MM as… (More)
