Involvement of c-Jun NH2-terminal kinase activation and c-Jun in the induction of apoptosis by the ether phospholipid 1-O-octadecyl-2-O-methyl-rac-glycero-3-phosphocholine.


The ether phospholipid 1-O-octadecyl-2-O-methyl-rac-glycero-3-phosphocholine (ET-18-OCH3; edelfosine) is a potent inducer of apoptosis in human tumor cells. We show that ET-18-OCH3-induced apoptosis is associated with activation of the c-Jun NH2-terminal kinase (JNK) signaling. The addition of ET-18-OCH3 to distinct human leukemic cells (HL-60, U937, and… (More)
