Abstract [en]

Mutationally activated Ras is involved in tumor progression and likely also in drug resistance. Using survival, viability and apoptosis assays, we have here compared the cisplatin sensitivities of FR3T3 rat fibroblasts and a 12V-H-ras transformed subline (Ras2:3). Around 24 h after cisplatin treatment Ras2:3 cells showed higher apoptosis levels and lower viability than FR3T3. This increased sensitivity correlated with weaker cisplatin-induced activation of Jun N-terminal kinase (JNK). In contrast to apoptosis assays, colony formation assays showed that Ras2:3 were more resistant to cisplatin than were FR3T3. This was partly due to the increased cisplatin sensitivity of FR3T3 seeded at low densities, as required in colony formation assays. In addition, Ras2:3 cisplatin survivors had a higher relative proliferative capacity. Cell cycle analyses showed that FR3T3 cells initially responded with a dose-dependent G2 arrest, while Ras2:3 accumulated in S-phase. Experiments with an anti-apoptotic mutant of MEKK1 suggested that the apoptotic response of Ras2:3 cells is not specific to the S-phase fraction. In summary, the cisplatin response of ras-transformed fibroblasts is distinct from that of parental cells, in that they show increased apoptosis, a different cell cycle response and increased post-treatment proliferative capacity. The results illustrate the need to carefully consider methods and protocols for in vitro studies on chemotherapy sensitivity.
