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

19:02 EDT 23rd April 2014 | BioPortfolio

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.

Nutlin-3 induces HO-1 expression by activating JNK in a transcription-independent manner of p53.

A recent study reported that p53 can induce HO-1 by directly binding to the putative p53 responsive element in the HO-1 promoter. In this study, we report that nutlin-3, a small molecule antagonist of...

High Mdm4 levels suppress p53 activity and enhance its half-life in acute myeloid leukaemia.

Although p53 is found mutated in almost 50% of all cancers, p53 mutations in leukaemia are relatively rare. Acute myeloid leukaemia (AML) cells employ other strategies to inactivate their wild type p5...

Sequential treatment of HPV E6 and E7-expressing TC-1 cells with bortezomib and celecoxib promotes apoptosis through p-p38 MAPK-mediated downregulation of cyclin D1 and CDK2.

Interruption of the cell cycle is accompanied by changes in several related molecules that result in the activation of apoptosis. The present study was performed to verify the apoptotic effects of seq...

A p53 Drug Response Signature Identifies Prognostic Genes in High-Risk Neuroblastoma.

Chemotherapy induces apoptosis and tumor regression primarily through activation of p53-mediated transcription. Neuroblastoma is a p53 wild type malignancy at diagnosis and repression of p53 signaling...

Inhibition of autophagy by autophagic inhibitors enhances apoptosis induced by bortezomib in non-small cell lung cancer cells.

Bortezomib is a novel proteasome inhibitor that has promising antitumor activity against various cancer cells. We have assessed its antitumor activity in non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC) A549 and H1...

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.
