apoptosis in THP-1 cells
Tue Oct 14 23:59:35 EST 1997
Can anyone advise me on an easy means of inducing apoptosis for a posative
controll in THP-1 monocytes. I need something that will give me a good
ladder effect using gel electrophoresis. ETOH, TNFalpha, serum deprivation,
& K shock are all cited frequently. I need the most practical means of
induction which can be done on a routine basis with good reproducability.
I'm using Promega Wizzard kits to purify the DNA & electrophoresis to
determine apoptotic cleavage (laddering).
FACS and TUNNEL assays are options I wish to avoid if possible.
Please respond if you have any experience with THP-1's or HL-60's in this
