Identification of an alternative form of caspase-9 in human gastric cancer cell lines: a role of a caspase-9 variant in apoptosis resistance

Abstract

Overcoming apoptosis resistance to chemotherapy and radiation may lead to a reduction in gastric cancer death. We hypothesize that the apoptotic machinery in gastric cancer cells is dependent upon specific cellular conditions. In the course of our study of the expression of apoptosis-related genes in human gastric cancer cell lines, we have identified a… (More)
