Camptothecin and khat (Catha edulis Forsk.) induced distinct cell death phenotypes involving modulation of c-FLIPL, Mcl-1, procaspase-8 and mitochondrial function in acute myeloid leukemia cell lines Bredholt, Therese; Dimba, Elizabeth A. O.; Hagland, Hanne; Wergeland, Line; Skavland, Jørn; Fossan, Kjell Ove; Tronstad, Karl Johan; Johannessen, Anne Christine; Vintermyr, Olav Karsten; Gjertsen, Bjørn Tore (BioMed Central, 2009-11-13)Background: An organic extract of the recreational herb khat (Catha edulis Forsk.) triggers cell death in various leukemia cell lines in vitro. The chemotherapeutics camptothecin, a plant alkaloid topoisomerase I inhibitor, ...Journal articlePeer reviewed
Wergeland, Line (The University of Bergen, 2007-09-06)Acute myeloid leukemia (AML) is an aggressive disease with a poor overall survival rate. The most frequent mutations associated with AML are internal tandem duplications (ITD) in the juxtamembrane region of the receptor ...Doctoral thesis
Pre-apoptotic response to therapeutic DNA damage involves protein modulation of Mcl-1, Hdm2 and Flt3 in acute myeloid leukemia cells Wergeland, Line; Sjøholt, Gry; Haaland, Ingvild; Hovland, Randi; Bruserud, Øystein; Gjertsen, Bjørn Tore (BioMed Central, 2007)Background: Acute myeloid leukemia (AML) cells are characterized by non-mutated TP53, high levels of Hdm2, and frequent mutation of the Flt3 receptor tyrosine kinase. The juxtamembrane mutation of FLT3 is the strongest ...Journal articlePeer reviewed
