Özet

Objective: The purpose of this study was to investigate if stimulating auto-paracrine muscarinic receptor signalling pathway could change human erythroleukemia K562 cell proliferation and caspase 3, 8 and 9 expression levels. To better understand the role of muscarinic receptors in cell signalling mechanism, we investigated the effects of several compounds on human erythroleukemia K562 cell proliferation and caspase 3, 8 and 9 expression. These compounds were M-3 muscarinic receptor agonist, pilocarpine, pro-inflammatory cytokine, tumor necrosis factor (TNF)-alpha, and the wortmannin which is a phosphoinositide 3-kinase inhibitor.
