Abstract 

Verrucarin A (VA) is a member of the family of macrocyclic trichothecenes, which exhibit anti-cancer and immune-modulating activities. However, VA has not yet been demonstrated to be involved in the sensitization of tumor necrosis factor-alpha (TNF-α)-mediated apoptosis. In the present study, we found that VA triggers TNF-α-induced apoptosis in human breast cancer MDA-MB-231 and MCF-7 cells. In particular, activation of caspas-3 and caspase-8 as well as release of cytochrome c were significantly enhanced in response to the combined treatment with VA and TNF-α (VA/TNF-α) and the pan-caspase inhibitor z-VAD-fmk completely reversed the apoptosis, suggesting that caspases are the main effector molecules in VA/TNF-α-induced apoptosis via the intrinsic and extrinsic pathway. Moreover, we confirmed that enhanced Fas expression plays a critical role, because the Fas-blocking antibody partially inhibited VA/TNF-α-induced apoptosis. VA also increased specific DNA-binding activity of nuclear factor-kappaB (NF-κB) via nuclear translocation of p50 and p65. In addition, pretreatment with the NF-κB inhibitor MG132 blocked VA/TNF-α-induced apoptosis by suppression of NF-κB-dependent Fas expression. These results indicated that VA enhances TNF-α-induced apoptosis via NF-κB-dependent Fas overexpression.
