Cell death mediated by alloreactive cytotoxic T cells via the granule exocytosis or the Fas pathway is independent of p34 cdc2 kinase: Fas dependent killing of cells arrested in the cell cycle

Waring, Paul; Mullbacher, Arno


Inappropriate activation of p34cdc2 kinase has been shown to occur during apoptosis induced by cytotoxic T-cell derived perforin and fragmentin. We analysed the effect of two inhibitors of p34cdc2 kinase on alloreactive Tc-cell-mediated lysis and DNA fragmentation of P815 and L1210 target cells. Olomoucine, a specific inhibitor of cyclin dependent kinases, did not affect DNA fragmentation in the target cells. Lysis of olomoucine-treated target cells as assessed by 51Cr release over a typical...[Show more]
