John R. Kuhnmuench III asked:

"I am in search of a cell line that may be a model for human

apoptosis.  Does one exist?  If so where could I find it? Thanks,

You can use HL60 cells - there are a number of procedures

you can use. We have a short review on some of these procedures
which  you can find from Methods in Cell Biology book below

You can download a copy of the chapter from our website

or buy the book!!
