Abstract

Glucocorticoid-induced apoptosis is preceded by G1 arrest and supposed to be up-regulated by polyamine-depletion, which also induces G1 arrest. In CEM leukemia cells, dexamethasone showed an antileukemic effect by inducing G1 arrest and apoptosis. DFMO, which depleted cellular polyamines by inhibiting ornithine decarboxylase, induced G1 arrest but without apoptosis, though it enhanced dexamethasone-induced G1 arrest and apoptosis. The G1 arrest was associated with hypophosphorylation of pRb. Dexamethasone inhibited the increase of mutated p53 expression but had little effect on p21(Waf1/Cip1) expression. The p27(Kip1) level was increased by dexamethasone or/and DFMO in line with the kinetics of G1 arrest. Therefore, the up-regulation of dexamethasone-induced apoptosis by polyamine-depletion may be associated with additive down-regulation of G1 progression via the p27(Kip1)-pRb pathway.
