Figure 6

Reduced constitutive expression of Ku80 in MT-4 and C81-6645 (C81) cells compared to Jurkat cells. Total cell lysates were prepared from the indicated cell lines and probed with anti-serum which recognizes both Ku70 and 80 proteins. Where indicated the cells were also treated with 1 μM mitomycin C (MMC) for the stated time period before harvesting. Note that constitutively reduced Ku80 expression remains inducible by MMC in the two Tax expressing cell lines (MT-4 and C81).
