ACETO ET AL. for oet ad progreio of meotheioma, ha bee demotrated [4, 12] ad very recety we howed that addreig with pharmacoogica aget i ao a promiig approach for meotheioma [13, 14]. Oxidative tre geerated by reactive oxyge pecie ha bee idicated both a a egative reguator of the urviva factor i huma eukaemia ce [15] ad a oe of the effect eicited by i gioma ce, eadig to uppreio of VEGF productio ad to ce death [16]. We how here that pecificay target meotheioma ce, but ot oeopatic HMC, ad that it proapoptotic mechaim i moty drive by oxidative tre ad ihibitio of activity. METHODS Ce cuture We ued two huma meotheia oeopatic ce ie (HMC ad MET5A) ad two etabihed huma maigat meotheioma ce ie (MMB ad MMP). A cotro we ued huma derma fibrobat (HDF) ad huma ug carcioma (A549). Primary HMC were obtaied from patiet with cogetive heart faiure ad cutured i Ham F12 medium (SigmaAdrich, St. Loui, MO, USA) uppemeted with 1% feta bovie erum (FBS; Life Techoogie, Rockvie, MD, USA). MET5A were purchaed from the America Type Cuture Coectio (ATCC; Maaa, VA, USA), ad cutured i Medium 199 (SigmaAdrich) uppemeted with 1% FBS. MMB ad MMP ce were derived from peura effuio of maigat meotheioma patiet ad cutured i Ham F12 medium uppemeted with 1% FBS. HDF were obtaied from a heathy door ad cutured i Ham F12 medium uppemeted with 1% FBS. A549 were purchaed from ATCC ad cutured i Ham F12 medium uppemeted with 1% FBS. Ce were grow at 37uC i a 5% CO 2 humified atmophere. MyrMMB were obtaied by trafectig MMB ce with Addgee pamid 98 (pcdna3 myrha 1), uig ipofectamie 2. Trafectat were eected by G418 for 3 week. Chemica Gutathioe mooethyeter (GSH), NacetyLcyteie (LNAC) ad rapamyci were purchaed from SigmaAdrich. Cytofuorimetric aayi of apoptoi Subcofuet ce were expoed to 1 mm (Tauroi1; Geitich Pharma, Wohue, Switzerad) or CD95activatig atibody 1 g?ml 1 (coe CH11; Uptate Biotechoogy, Lake Pacid, NY, USA). After 24h icubatio, ce were harveted i bidig buffer (1 mm Hepe/NaOH ph 7.4, 14 mm NaC, 2.5 mm CaC 2 ), taied i the dark for 1 mi with 5 ml of fuorocei iothiocyaateabeed aexi V (Aexi, Lauae, Switzerad), wahed with bidig buffer ad the taied with 1 mg?ml 1 propidium iodide (Sigma Adrich).

Other have demotrated that ao exert oxidative tre o meotheioma ce, with ubequet p53 activatio ad dowreguatio of urvivi, Bc2 ad Mc1 urviva protei ad ce death [27]. I the preet tudy, we oberved the effect of pecific ad timedepedet itrite productio upo meotheioma ce treatmet with. Iteretigy, i both MMB ad MMP ce, the kietic of itrite reeae i cogruet with the timecoure of cytotoxicity caued by thi drug. Moreover, ihibitio ao occur after treatmet, foowig a imiar tred. Atogether, thee reut ead u to cocude that iduce oxidative tre ad thi ceario i cofirmed by the igificat icreae of 8OHdG adduct productio iduced by i meotheioma ce compared with oeopatic meotheia ce.

I MMB ce expreig a myritoyated, cotitutivey active [22], wa ti abe to ihibit phophoryatio ad iduce cytotoxicity, a i widtype MMB ce. The fact that ihibited eve cotitutive activated (abeit at higher cocetratio) reiforce the pecific effect of o thi igaig. Iteretigy, PP2A activity wa eectivey icreaed upo treatmet oy i MMP but ot i HMC, with a peak tartig 2 h after drug expoure, wherea PP1a wa activated very ate ad PTEN activity wa ot modified at a. The roe of PP2A ha bee exteivey tudied a a moduator of igaig kiae ad a a key reguator i huma tumour [3]. Moreover, other tudie reiforced that PP2A ca be pecificay targeted by pharmacoogica aget [31] ad that thi phophatae pecificay ihibit activity [32]. Our reut revea a differece i timig of ihibitio ad PP2A activatio. We ca hypotheie either that very ow PP2A activity, beow the immuobottig detectio threhod, may be ufficiet to ihibit i the eary phae of ce repoe to or, more ikey, that PP2A ad poiby PP1a utai the ihibited tatu provoked by aother yet ukow effector. It ha recety bee uggeted that oxidative tre may ifuece activity by itratio of the p85 ubuit of phophoioitide 3kiae, eadig to the impairmet of the p85/p11 compex [33]. We oberved o detectabe itratio of the p85 reguatory ubuit i meotheioma ce upo treatmet with (data ot how).

However, we were ot abe to detect ay modificatio of tyroie phophoryatio eve of thoe RTK mot commoy expreed i meotheioma ce, uch a Met ad PDGFRb (data ot how). The dicrepacy with our reut may be due to ce ieage differece i repoivee to oxidat aget. Our reut trogy ugget that i actig o the mechaim of activatio/ihibitio more tha o the uptream igaig.
