HO-3867 Induces Apoptosis via the JNK Signaling Pathway in Human Osteosarcoma Cells.

Pharmaceutics 2022 Jun 13;14(6). Epub 2022 Jun 13.

Institute of Medicine, Chung Shan Medical University, Taichung 402, Taiwan.

Metastatic osteosarcoma often results in poor prognosis despite the application of surgical en bloc excision along with chemotherapy. HO-3867 is a curcumin analog that induces cell apoptosis in several cancers, but the apoptotic effect and its mechanisms on osteosarcoma cells are still unknown. After observing the decrease in cellular viability of three human osteosarcoma U2OS, HOS, and MG-63 cell lines, and the induction of cellular apoptosis and arrest in sub-G1 phase in U2OS and HOS cells by HO-3867, the human apoptosis array showed that heme oxygenase (HO)-1 and cleaved caspase-3 expressions had significant increases after HO-3867 treatment in U2OS cells and vice versa for cellular inhibitors of apoptosis (cIAP)1 and X-chromosome-linked IAP (XIAP).

Dihydrotanshinone I Enhances Cell Adhesion and Inhibits Cell Migration in Osteosarcoma U-2 OS Cells through CD44 and Chemokine Signaling.

Molecules 2022 Jun 9;27(12). Epub 2022 Jun 9.

Joint Research Centre for Engineering Biology, Zhejiang University-University of Edinburgh Institute, Zhejiang University, Haining 314400, China.

In the screening of novel natural products against cancer using an in vitro cancer cell model, we recently found that tanshinones from a traditional Chinese medicine, the rhizome of Bunge (Danshen), had potent effects on cell proliferation and migration. Especially for human osteosarcoma U-2 OS cells, tanshinones significantly enhanced the cell adherence, implying a possible role in cell adhesion and cell migration inhibition. In this work, therefore, we aimed to provide a new insight into the possible molecule mechanisms of dihydrotanshinone I, which had the strongest effects on cell adhesion among several candidate tanshinones.

Addressing Doxorubicin Resistance in Bone Sarcomas Using Novel Drug-Resistant Models.

Int J Mol Sci 2022 Jun 8;23(12). Epub 2022 Jun 8.

Instituto de Investigación Sanitaria del Principado de Asturias (ISPA), Hospital Universitario Central de Asturias, Avenida de Roma, s/n 33011 Oviedo, Spain.

Bone sarcomas have not shown a significant improvement in survival for decades, due, in part, to the development of resistance to current systemic treatments, such as doxorubicin. To better understand those mechanisms mediating drug-resistance we generated three osteosarcoma and one chondrosarcoma cell lines with a stable doxorubicin-resistant phenotype, both in vitro and in vivo. These resistant strains include a pioneer model generated from a patient-derived chondrosarcoma line. Read More
