HDAC inhibitors induce apoptosis but not cellular senescence in Gadd45α-deficient E1A+Ras cells.

HDAC inhibitors (HDIs) induce irreversible cell cycle arrest and senescence in E1A+Ras expressing cells. Furthermore, HDIs activate Gadd45α/NF-κB signaling pathway to suppress apoptosis thereby promoting the cell survival. Here, to clarify the role of Gadd45α in realization of the antiapoptotic program, we compared wild-type E1A+Ras cells and the cells with… (More)
