Table 1 Effect of A23187 on apoptosis. The B lymphoblasts were cultured in basal (X-VIVO15) medium in the absence or presence of 200 nM A23187 for 48 hours. Percentages of FITC-annexinV positive cells were determined as described in Methods. Two Scott B lymphoblasts independently immortalized from the patient's lymphocytes, one daughter's and two control B lymphoblasts from unrelated individuals were used for these studies. Each cell line was analyzed twice. Results are means ± SD from the four experiments for Scott and control B lymphoblasts respectively and the two experiments for daughter's cells.
