Tyrosine kinase(s) regulate apoptosis and bcl-2 expression in a growth factor-dependent cell line.


Apoptosis (programmed cell death) plays a critical role in many physiological processes, but the mechanism(s) which regulate apoptosis are poorly understood. We demonstrate that in a hematopoietic cell line, which can grow in either interleukin (IL)-2 or IL-3, both of these growth factors can increase bcl-2 mRNA levels and prevent apoptosis normally seen… (More)
