Figure 6

Effect of cycloheximide on Compound K-induced caspase activities and DNA fragmentation in HL-60 cells. (A) Cells were pretreated with 1 μg/mL cycloheximide for 1 h and then treated with 20 μM of Compound K for 4 h. Cleavages of procaspase-8 and -3 were analyzed by Western blotting. (B) Compound K-induced DNA fragmentation was visualized by ethidium bromide staining.
