Summary of "MDM2 antagonist Nutlin-3 enhances bortezomib-mediated mitochondrial apoptosis in TP53-mutated mantle cell lymphoma."

This study demonstrated a pronounced synergistic growth-inhibitory effect of an MDM2 inhibitor Nutlin-3 and a proteasome inhibitor bortezomib in mantle cell lymphoma (MCL) cells regardless of TP53 mutant status and innate bortezomib sensitivity. In the mutant TP53 MCL cells which are intrinsically resistant to bortezomib, the combination of Nutlin-3/bortezomib synergistically induced cytotoxicity through the mitochondrial apoptotic pathway mediated by transcription-independent upregulation of NOXA, sequestration of MCL-1, activation of BAX, BAK, caspase-9 and -3. In the bortezomib sensitive wild-type TP53 MCL cells, the Nutlin-3/bortezomib combination caused G0/G1 cell cycle arrest followed by the increase in apoptosis induction. These findings indicate potential therapeutic efficacy of Nutlin-3/bortezomib combination for the treatment of chemorefractory MCL.

The p53 tumor suppressor gene plays a critical role in regulation of proliferation, cell death and differentiation. The MDM2 oncoprotein is a major negative regulator for p53 by binding to and targeti...

Novel Roles for P53 in the Genesis and Targeting of Tetraploid Cancer Cells.

Tetraploid (4N) cells are considered important in cancer because they can display increased tumorigenicity, resistance to conventional therapies, and are believed to be precursors to whole chromosome ...

Actinomycin D and nutlin-3a synergistically promote phosphorylation of p53 on serine 46 in cancer cell lines of different origin.

The p53 tumor suppressor protein is a transcription factor activated by phosphorylation of its N-terminus. MDM2, encoded by a p53-activated gene, acts as a negative-feedback regulator of p53 by promot...

RITA can induce cell death in p53-defective cells independently of p53 function via activation of JNK/SAPK and p38.

Significant advances have been made in the development of small molecules blocking the p53/MDM2 interaction. The Mdm2 inhibitor Nutlin-3 is restricted to tumors carrying wtp53. In contrast, RITA, a co...

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

A multi-domain mitochondrial membrane protein and member of the bcl-2 Protein family. Bak protein interacts with TUMOR SUPPRESSOR PROTEIN P53 and promotes APOPTOSIS.

An inhibitor of apoptosis protein that is translated by a rare cap-independent mechanism. It blocks caspase-mediated cellular destruction by inhibiting CASPASE 3; CASPASE 7; and CASPASE 9.

An indolocarbazole that is a potent PROTEIN KINASE C inhibitor which enhances cAMP-mediated responses in human neuroblastoma cells. (Biochem Biophys Res Commun 1995;214(3):1114-20)

A 33-amino acid peptide derived from the C-terminal of PROGLUCAGON and mainly produced by the INTESTINAL L CELLS. It stimulates intestinal mucosal growth and decreased apoptosis of ENTEROCYTES. GLP-2 enhances gastrointestinal function and plays an important role in nutrient homeostasis.

A family of proteins that were originally identified by their ability to cause NECROSIS of NEOPLASMS. Their necrotic effect on cells is mediated through TUMOR NECROSIS FACTOR RECEPTORS which induce APOPTOSIS.
