Figure Lengend Snippet: The effects of JNK inhibition on the induction of cell death by POH in U251 cells. Before treatment, U251 cells were incubated without (A and B) or with (C and D) JNK inhibitor V (0.5 μM) for 30 minutes. The cells were treated with 0.1% DMSO (A) , 0.5 mM POH (B) 0.1% DMSO plus JNK inhibitor V (C) , and 0.5 mM POH plus JNK inhibitor V (D) . After 24 hours of incubation, the cells were stained with annexin V-FITC and propidium iodide and analyzed by flow cytometry. Figure 7E represents the percentage of dead cells as indicated by early apoptosis and late apoptosis or necrosis (right lower quadrant + right upper quadrant, respectively), which was calculated from the data shown in Figures 7A-D. The data were expressed as the means ± SD from at least three different experiments. ***p
Article Snippet: Cell death assay U87 and U251 cells were pretreated for 30 minutes with JNK inhibitor V [1,3-Benzothiazol-2-yl-(2-((2-(3-pyridinyl)ethyl)amino)-4-pyrimidinyl)acetonitrile; Calbiochem], an inhibitor of JNK1/2 activation, before treatment with 0.5 mM POH and 0.5 mM POH plus 0.5 μM JNK inhibitor V. After 24 hours of incubation, the cells were suspended in annexin and propidium iodide binding buffer as specified in the TACS Annexin V-FITC apoptosis detection kit (R & D Systems).
