BACKGROUND AND AIM:To investigate the apoptotic effect and mechanism of K562 cells exposed to cerium chloride(CeCl3)and CeCl3 combined with gamma radiation.MATERIALS AND METHODS:Apoptosis and cell cycle of K562 cells were examined using flow cytometry and expressions of Bcl-2 and Bax were assessed with Western blot.RESULTS:Compared with control,CeCl3 exposure for 26 h,gamma irradiation,and both combined could induce apoptosis of K562 cells(P0.05).The cells in S phase were reduced in CeCl3 group… CONTINUE READING
