SapC-DOPS treatment causes redistribution of apoptogenic proteins and Bax oligomerization in mitochondria of neuroblastoma cells. A) Immunoblots from whole cell extracts showing apoptotic protein expression changes following treatment with 50 μM SapC-DOPS. Fractions indicate fold-change estimated by densitometric analysis of proteins normalized to β-Actin corresponding to the lane. Fold change indicated for caspase-3 corresponds to the cleaved 19 kDa fragment. Right lanes: (−) refers to negative control (Schwann cells treated with SapC-DOPS) and (+) refers to positive control (SK-N-SH cells treated with 10 μM staurosporine) for 24 h. B) Relocation of Smac and Cyto c in SK-N-SH cells. Cox4 and Tubulin served as loading control for the mitochondrial and cytoplasmic fractions, respectively. C) Bax redistribution in neuroblastoma cells following SapC-DOPS treatment. D) Bax oligomerization in neuroblastoma cells. **P < 0.001. Points, mean of three to five experiments; bars, SE. Western blots are representative of three independent experiments.
