Interferon-induced cell cycle changes in human hematopoietic cell lines and fresh leukemic cells.

A panel of 26 human hematopoietic cell lines was tested for sensitivity to growth inhibition towards interferon-alpha (IFN-alpha) by estimating the effects on cell cycle phase distribution using flow cytometry analysis. The proportion of proliferating cells was assessed by studying the fractional increase of cells in mitosis during a 24-hr vinblastine block… CONTINUE READING
