Transduced HEp-2 and KB cell lines using a recombinant adeno-associated virus (rAAV)-GFP vector showed a high GFP expression rate. GALR2 express in the presence of galanin suppressed cell viability in both cell lines. The annexin V-positive rate and sub-G0/G1 phase population were significantly elevated in the both cells. Furthermore, in HEp-2 cells, GALR2-mediated apoptosis was caspase-independent, involving down-regulation of ERK1/2, followed by induction of the pro-apoptotic Bcl-2 protein, Bim.
