GSH inhibits 15d-PGJ2-induced apoptosis in osteosarcoma cells
By Christopher Trummer on 10/15/2018
Assay Type: In Vitro
Species: Human
Cell Line/Tissue: MG-63 osteosarcoma cells

MG-63 cells were incubated with GSH (10 μM) for 30 min prior to 15d-PGJ2 treatment (20 μM) for 24 h to follow apoptotic markers using Western blot. GSH inhibited 15d-PGJ2-induced PARP and Caspase-3 cleavage.
