The effect of pyrimidine nucleosides on adenosine-induced apoptosis in HL-60 cells


Among several nucleosides, adenosine is the only one to induce typical apoptotic cell death in human promyelocytic leukemia HL-60 cells. Intracellularly transported adenosine seemed to be required for the induction of apoptosis, since dipyridamole, which inhibits the transport of adenosine, strongly suppressed apoptosis, and 8-phenyltheophylline, a receptor… (More)
