Abstract

In chronic myeloid leukemia (CML), imatinib mesylate (IM; Gleevec, Glivec) induces a G0/G1 cell-cycle block in total CD34(+) cells without causing significant apoptosis. Bryostatin-1 (bryo), a protein kinase C (PKC) modulator, was investigated for its ability to increase IM-mediated apoptosis either through induction of cycling of G0/G1 Ph(+) cells or antagonism of the IM-induced cell-cycle block.
