Benzamide was used to study the effect of inhibitors of endonuclease and poly(ADP ribose) polymerase on anti-Fas monoclonal antibody treated Jurkat cells.

Biochem/physiol Actions

Benzamide is a specific inhibitor of poly(ADP-ribose)polymerase. It prevents glutamate- and methamphetamine-induced neurotoxicity in vitro in C57B1/6N mouse.
Inhibits poly(ADP-ribose) polymerase (PARP).

We compared two methods to stain apoptotic cells, one using terminal deoxynucleotidyl transferase (TDT), the other DNA polymerase I, using leukemia cell lines treated with anti-Fas monoclonal antibody (MAb). Both TDT and polymerase I strongly reacted with fragmented nuclei of...

Human fibroblasts were subjected to nutritionally induced G1 block, followed by release and subsequent entry into S phase, and exposed to nontoxic concentrations of carcinogens in early S phase. Cell transformation occurred as determined by early morphologic cell alterations, anchorage-independent...

Previous studies have indicated that the activation of poly(ADP-ribose) polymerase (PARP), an enzyme involved in DNA plasticity-related phenomena, is an early event occurring in glutamate-induced neurotoxicity in vitro, and that inhibitors of PARP, including benzamide, are protective against both glutamate-...
