Abstract 

The efficacy of cisplatin in cancer chemotherapy is limited by the development of resistance. To elucidate the molecular basis of resistance to cisplatin, we compared cisplatin-induced apoptotic responses of the parental human bladder cancer cell line, T24 and its resistant subclone, T24R2. In T24 cells, cisplatin induce apoptosis and the activation of caspase-8, -9 and -3 and poly(ADP-ribose) polymerase cleavage. The expression levels of Fas, FasL, and FADD were not changed by the treatment with cisplatin. Furthermore, neither Fas-neutralizing antibody nor dominant negative mutant of FADD affected cisplatin-induced apoptosis. Western blot analysis of subcellular fractions showed that cisplatin induced redistribution of Bax and cytochrome c. Thus, cisplatin causes apoptosis in a death receptor-independent and mitochondria-dependent fashion in T24 cells. In contrast, overexpressed Bcl-2 protein inhibited cisplatin-induced Bax translocation and its downstream events in T24R2. Downregulation of Bcl-2 by RNAi potentiated the redistribution of Bax and cytochrome c and reversed cisplatin-resistance. Our results indicate that upregulation of Bcl-2 contributes to the development of cisplatin-resistance and usage of siRNA which targets the Bcl-2 gene may offer a potential tool to reverse the resistance to cisplatin in bladder cancer.
