Abstract
To gain further insight into the mechanism of cell photostimulation by laser light ((lambda) equals 632.8 nm), DNA synthesis was measured in the human neuroblastoma cell line BE(2)-C. Cells were irradiated at high density to establish the characteristics of cellular energy into S- phase in response to laser stimulation. BE(2)-C cells after release from a quiescent, growth arrested state exhibited increased incorporation of isotope 12 hours after replating at subconfluent density in the presence of 2.5% fetal bovine serum (FBS) and [3H] thymidine. In contrast, cells replated under the same conditions, but stimulated with 15% FBS exhibited a time lag of approximately 16 hours in apparent DNA synthesis. These results were not corroborated by flow cytometry. Laser irradiation did not affect the fraction of cells entering S-phase. It therefore appears that the stimulatory effect of He-Ne laser irradiation on BE(2)-C cells is to enhance DNA synthesis while not altering the G1-S transition rate.
