Table 1 Percent of cells undergoing apoptosis by TNF-α treatment

From: Mesothelin confers pancreatic cancer cell resistance to TNF-α-induced apoptosis through Akt/PI3K/NF-κB activation and IL-6/Mcl-1 overexpression

Cell Line % TUNEL positive (without TNF-α) % TUNEL positive (20 ng/ml TNF-α)
MIA 0.0 27.3
Capan-1 4.7 5.3
BxPC3 4.9 7.6
PL 45 4.5 2.9
AsPC-1 4.7 1.8
Capan-2 4.8 8.7
Panc 48 4.3 8.5
  1. Cells were plated in 6 well plates, starved over night and treated with 20 ng/ml of TNF-α for 72 h. Cells were collected, fixed, washed and then processed for TUNEL assay.
