  • Phenotype-based screening of mechanistically annotated compounds in combination with gene expression and pathway analysis identifies candidate drug targets in a human squamous carcinoma cell model

    • The squamous cell carcinoma HeLa cell line and an epithelial cell line hTERT-RPE with a nonmalignant phenotype were interrogated for HeLa cell selectivity in response to 1267 annotated compounds representing 56 pharmacological classes. Selective cytotoxic activity was observed for 14 of these compounds dominated by cyclic adenosine monophosphate (cAMP) selective phosphodiesterase (PDE) inhibitors, which tended to span a representation of the chemical descriptor space of the library. The PDE inhibitors induced delayed cell death with features compatible with classical apoptosis. The PDE inhibitors were largely inactive when tested against a cell line panel consisting of hematological and nonsquamous epithelial phenotypes. In a genome-wide DNA microarray analysis, PDE3A and PDE2A were found to be significantly increased in HeLa cells compared to the other cell lines. The pathway analysis software PathwayAssist was subsequently used to extract a list of proteins and small molecules retrieved from Medline abstracts associated with the hit compounds. The resulting list consisted of major parts of the cAMP-protein kinase A pathway linking to ERK, P38, and AKT. This molecular network may provide a basis for further exploitation of novel candidate targets for the treatment of squamous cell carcinoma.

  • Screening of an annotated compound library for drug activity in a resistant myeloma cell line
  • 2006
  • Ingår i: Cancer Chemotherapy and Pharmacology. - 0344-5704 .- 1432-0843. ; 58:6, s. 749-758

    • Purpose: Resistance to anticancer drugs is a major problem in chemotherapy. In order to identify drugs with selective cytotoxic activity in drug-resistant cancer cells, the annotated compound library LOPAC(1280), containing compounds from 56 pharmacological classes, was screened in the myeloma cell line RPMI 8226 and its doxorubicin-resistant subline 8226/Dox40. Methods: Cell survival was measured by the Fluorometric Microculture Cytotoxicity Assay. Results: Selective cytotoxic activity in 8226/Dox40 was obtained for 33 compounds, with the most pronounced difference observed for the glucocorticoids. A microarray analysis of the cells showed a difference in mRNA-expression for the glucocorticoid receptor suggesting potential mechanisms for the difference in glucocorticoid sensitivity. In the presence of the glucocorticoid-receptor antagonist RU486, the sensitivity to the glucocorticoids was reduced and a similar effect level in RPMI 8226 and 8226/Dox40 was achieved. Conclusion: In conclusion, screening of mechanistically annotated compounds on drug-resistant cancer cells can identify compounds with selective activity and provide a basis for the development of novel treatments of drug-resistant malignancies.

  • Pharmacological profiling of disulfiram using human tumor cell lines and human tumor cells from patients

    • The thiocarbamate drug disulfiram has been used for decades in the treatment of alcohol abuse. Disulfiram induces apoptosis in a number of tumor cell lines and was recently by us proposed to act as a 26S proteasome inhibitor. In this work we characterized disulfiram in vitro with regard to tumor-type specificity, possible mechanisms of action and drug resistance and cell death in human tumor cell lines and in 78 samples of tumor cells from patients using the fluorometric microculture cytotoxicity assay and the automated fluorescence-imaging microscope ArrayScan®. Disulfiram induced cytotoxicity in a biphasic pattern in both cell lines and patient tumor cells. Disulfiram induced apoptosis as measured by cell membrane permeability, nuclear fragmentation/condensation and caspase-3/7 activation using high content screening assays. For many of the cell lines tested disulfiram was active in sub-micromolar concentrations. When comparing the log IC50 patterns with other cytotoxic agents, disulfiram showed low correlation (R < 0.5) with all drugs except lactacystin (R = 0.69), a known proteasome inhibitor, indicating that the two substances may share mechanistic pathways. Disulfiram was more active in hematological than in solid tumor samples, but substantial activity was observed in carcinomas of the ovary and the breast and in non-small cell lung cancer. Disulfiram also displayed higher cytotoxic effect in cells from chronic lymphocytic leukemia than in normal lymphocytes (p < 0.05), which may indicate some tumor selectivity. These results together with large clinical experience and relatively mild side effects encourage clinical studies of disulfiram as an anti-cancer agent.
