Краткое описание

Glioblastoma brain tumor cells and normal astrocytes were treated with plasma-activated medium (PAM). Cell proliferation assays showed that glioblastoma cells were selectively killed by PAM. PAM induced morphological changes consistent with apoptosis in glioblastoma cells and the cells decreased in size. We confirmed that those cells induced apoptosis using an apoptotic molecular marker, cleaved Caspase3/7. To elucidate the molecular mechanisms of PAM-mediated apoptosis in glioblastoma cells, we investigated the effects of survival signal transduction pathways. We found that PAM downregulated the expression of AKT kinase, a marker molecule in a survival signal transduction pathway. These results suggest that PAM may be a promising tool for therapy of glioblastoma brain tumors by downregulating the survival signals in cancers.
