A human myeloid cell line, Mo7, and a daughter cell line expressing the bcr/abl oncogene, Mo7-P210, were used in a comparative study analyzing the effects of p210(BCR/ABL) expression on tyrosine phosphorylation, specific DNA binding and expression of the proto-oncoprotein c-Rel. The steady state expression of c-Rel was indistinguishable in both cell lines. Tyrosine phosphorylation and DNA binding of c-Rel were slightly elevated in Mo7-P210 cells. Further, Mo7 and Mo7-P210 cells showed different responses concerning c-Rel after stimulation with cytokines and retinoic acid. The results presented here demonstrate that c-Rel can be modulated by hematopoietic cytokines and suggest that bcr/abl expression has an impact on these responses and that c-Rel may be a downstream effector for p210(BCR/ABL).
