Monochloramine inhibits etoposide-induced apoptosis with an increase in DNA aberration.


Monochloramine (NH(2)Cl) is a physiological oxidant produced by activated neutrophils, and it affects apoptosis signaling. We studied the effects of NH(2)Cl on the cell death induced by etoposide, a widely used anticancer agent that is directed to DNA topoisomerase II. Jurkat T cells, a human acute T cell leukemia cell line, were pretreated with 70 microM… (More)
