Pharmacological inhibition of HSP90 radiosensitizes HNSCC xenograft by inhibition of DNA damage repair, nucleotide metabolism, and radiation-induced tumor vasculogenesis.

Int J Radiat Oncol Biol Phys 2021 Apr 7. Epub 2021 Apr 7.

Radiation Biology Branch, National Cancer Institute, National Institutes of Health, Bethesda, MD. Electronic address:

Purpose: Recent pre-clinical studies suggest combining the HSP90 inhibitor AT13387 (Onalespib) with radiation (IR) against colon cancer and HNSCC. These studies emphasized that AT13387 down-regulates HSP90 client proteins involved in oncogenic signaling and DNA repair mechanisms as major drivers of enhanced radiosensitivity. Given the large array of client proteins HSP90 directs, we hypothesized that other key proteins or signaling pathways may be inhibited by AT13387 and contribute to enhanced radiosensitivity.

Enhanced cytarabine-induced killing in OGG1-deficient acute myeloid leukemia cells.

Proc Natl Acad Sci U S A 2021 Mar;118(11)

Oregon Institute of Occupational Health Sciences, Oregon Health & Science University, Portland, OR 97239;

Human clinical trials suggest that inhibition of enzymes in the DNA base excision repair (BER) pathway, such as PARP1 and APE1, can be useful in anticancer strategies when combined with certain DNA-damaging agents or tumor-specific genetic deficiencies. There is also evidence suggesting that inhibition of the BER enzyme 8-oxoguanine DNA glycosylase-1 (OGG1), which initiates repair of 8-oxo-7,8-dihydro-2'-deoxyguanosine (8-oxo-dG) and 2,6-diamino-4-hydroxy-5-formamidopyrimidine (Fapy-dG), could be useful in treating certain cancers. Specifically, in acute myeloid leukemia (AML), both the RUNX1-RUNX1T1 fusion and the CBFB-MYH11 subtypes have lower levels of expression, which correlate with increased therapeutic-induced cell cytotoxicity and good prognosis for improved, relapse-free survival compared with other AML patients.

DNA breaks-mediated fitness cost reveals RNase HI as a new target for selectively eliminating antibiotic resistant bacteria.

Mol Biol Evol 2021 Apr 8. Epub 2021 Apr 8.

Instituto Gulbenkian de Ciência, Oeiras, 2780-156, Portugal.

Antibiotic resistance often generates defects in bacterial growth called fitness cost. Understanding the causes of this cost is of paramount importance, as it is one of the main determinants of the prevalence of resistances upon reducing antibiotics use. Here we show that the fitness costs of antibiotic resistance mutations that affect transcription and translation in Escherichia coli strongly correlate with DNA breaks, which are generated via transcription-translation uncoupling, increased formation of RNA-DNA hybrids (R-loops) and elevated replication-transcription conflicts.
