Mechanistic aspects of the induction of apoptosis by lauryl gallate in the murine B-cell lymphoma line Wehi 231.

The effect of lauryl gallate (antioxidant E-312) has been studied on the mouse B-cell lymphoma line Wehi 231. This compound is able to inhibit protein tyrosine kinases (PTKs) in whole cells and in crude extracts with a better efficiency than other well-known PTK inhibitors such as herbimycin or genistein. Initial events triggered upon the incubation of… (More)
