Bcl-2-deficient mice demonstrate fulminant lymphoid apoptosis, polycystic kidneys, and hypopigmented hair

, : Bcl-2-deficient mice demonstrate fulminant lymphoid apoptosis, polycystic kidneys, and hypopigmented hair. Cell Cambridge 75(2): 229-240

bcl-2-/- mice complete embryonic development, but display growth retardation and early mortality postnatally. Hematopoiesis including lymphocyte differentiation is initially normal, but thymus and spleen undergo massive apoptotic involution. Thymocytes require an apoptotic signal to manifest accelerated cell death. Renal failure results from severe polycystic kidney disease characterized by dilated proximal and distal tubular segments and hyperproliferation of epithelium and interstitium. bcl-2-/- mice turn gray with the second hair follicle cycle, implicating a defect in redox-regulated melanin synthesis. The abnormalities in these loss of function mice argue that Bcl-2 is a death repressor molecule functioning in an antioxidant pathway. Copyright 1993 Cell Press. .

Purpose: Trimetrexate (TMTX) is a dihydrofolate reductase inhibitor, which, like methotrexate (MTX), has been shown to potentiate fluorouracil (FU) cytotoxicity by increasing phosphoribosylpyrophosphate (PRPP) levels. We investigated the safety an...
