Induction of GADD153 and Bak: novel molecular targets of fenretinide-induced apoptosis of neuroblastoma.

Abstract

Unlike 13-cis retinoic acid, the synthetic retinoid fenretinide induces apoptosis of neuroblastoma cells and in vitro acts synergistically with the chemotherapeutic drugs, cisplatin, etoposide and carboplatin. The stress-induced transcription factor GADD153 and the Bcl2-related protein Bak are upregulated in response to fenretinide. Although fenretinide is… (More)
