Abstract [en]

Acute promyelocytic leukemia KG1 cells with t(11;17) PLZF-RAR alpha respond poorly to the differentiation inducer all-trans retinoic acid (RA), and the reason for the RA resistance is the recruitment of histone deacetylase by PLZF-RAR alpha. Here, we demonstrate that histone deacetylase inhibitors (HDACIs), FK228, BML-210, phenyl butyrate, and vitamin B3, in different combinations with RA, act as KG1 cell growth inhibitors. Partial differentiation to granulocytes was induced by 3 mu mol/L RA, and its combination with HDAC inhibitors did not enhance RA-induced but potentiated apoptosis. HDACIs induced accumulation of hyperacetylated histone H4. Chromatin immunoprecipitation analysis has revealed phenyl butyrate and its combinations with RA and vitamin B3 cause histone H4 acetylation in the p21 promoter regions corresponding to p53 and/or Sp1 sites. This was coincident with the activation of the transcription factor p53-binding activity to the p21 promoter in electrophoretic mobility shift assay. The results indicate the possibility of using the combination of agents for therapeutic strategy in RA-resistant acute myeloid leukemia to produce both differentiation and apoptosis.
