In this work we studied clinically relevant interactions between the BH3 mimetics and the ABCB1 and ABCG2 transporters. We observed that the intracellular levels of ABT-263 and ABT-199, but not ABT-737, might be reduced by ABCB1 or ABCG2. Importantly, this effect was proportional to the transporter expression level. High transporter expression levels decreased the intracellular levels of ABT-263 and ABT-199 substantially. Low transporter expression levels, which are clinically relevant, affected the intracellular level of ABT-263 slightly but significantly, however, they failed to decrease the intracellular level of ABT-199 below the control level in parental cells...

Cells from patients with acute myeloid leukemia (AML) that remain dormant and protected by stromal cells may escape effects of chemotherapy. We modeled dormancy in vitro and investigated the ability of Bcl-2 inhibitors ABT-199 and ABT-737 to overcome chemoprotection of dormant cells. CD34-enriched primary AML cells with aberrant leukemia-associated phenotypes (LAPs) were cultured on stromal cells. The chemosensitivity of dormant (PKH26 high ), CD34+, LAP+ cells was ascertained by 5-colour flow cytometric counting after 12 d...

The anti-apoptotic members of B-cell lymphoma-2 (Bcl-2) proteins family, such as Bcl-2 and myeloid cell leukemia-1 (Mcl-1), are the key regulators of the intrinsic pathway of apoptosis and overexpressed in many tumor cells, which have been confirmed as potential drug targets for cancers. A number of Bcl-2 proteins inhibitors have been developed and conducted clinical trials, but no Mcl-1 inhibitors are presented in the clinics. In addition, Mcl-1 is an important reason for the resistance to radio- and chemotherapies, including inhibitors that target other Bcl-2 family members...

High-grade B-cell lymphoma with MYC and BCL2 and/or BCL6 rearrangements, mostly known as double-hit lymphoma (DHL), is a rare entity characterized by morphologic and molecular features between Burkitt lymphoma and the clinically manageable diffuse large B-cell lymphoma (DLBCL). DHL patients usually undergo a rapidly progressing clinical course associated with resistance to standard chemo-immunotherapy. As a consequence, the prognosis of this entity is particularly poor with a median overall survival inferior to 1 year...

Bcl-2 is often upregulated in cancers to neutralize the BH3-only protein Bim at the mitochondria. BH3 mimetics (e.g. ABT-199 (venetoclax)) kill cancer cells by targeting Bcl-2's hydrophobic cleft and disrupting Bcl-2/Bim complexes. Some cancers with elevated Bcl-2 display poor responses towards BH3 mimetics, suggesting an additional function for anti-apoptotic Bcl-2 in these cancers. Indeed, Bcl-2 via its BH4 domain prevents cytotoxic Ca2+ release from the endoplasmic reticulum (ER) by directly inhibiting the inositol 1,4,5-trisphosphate receptor (IP3R)...

The BH3-only apoptosis agonists BAD and NOXA target BCL-2 and MCL-1 respectively and co-operate to induce apoptosis. On this basis, therapeutic drugs targeting BCL-2 and MCL-1 might have enhanced activity if used in combination. We identified anti-leukaemic drugs sensitising to BCL-2 antagonism and drugs sensitising to MCL-1 antagonism using the technique of dynamic BH3 profiling, whereby cells were primed with drugs to discover whether this would elicit mitochondrial outer membrane permeabilisation in response to BCL-2-targeting BAD-BH3 peptide or MCL-1-targeting MS1-BH3 peptide...

BACKGROUND: The BCL-2-specific BH3-mimetic ABT-199 (venetoclax) has been reported to be principally active against favourable-risk multiple myeloma (MM) cells, prompting efforts to extend its activity to include more resistant, higher-risk MM subsets. METHODS: Effects of the CDK9 inhibitor flavopiridol (FP; alvocidib) on responses to ABT-199 were examined in MM cells. Cell death and protein expression were evaluated by western blot and immunofluorescence. Xenograft models were used to study combination effects in vivo...

Acute myeloid leukemia (AML) remains challenging to treat and needs more effective treatments. The PI3K/mTOR pathway is involved in cell survival and has been shown to be constitutively active in 50-80% of AML patients. However, targeting the PI3K/mTOR pathway results in activation of the ERK pathway, which also plays an important role in cell survival. In addition, AML cells often overexpress antiapoptotic Bcl-2 family proteins (e.g., Bcl-2), preventing cell death. Thus, our strategy here is to target the PI3K, mTOR (by VS-5584, a PI3K and mTOR dual inhibitor), ERK (by SCH772984, an ERK-selective inhibitor), and Bcl-2 (by ABT-199, a Bcl-2-selective inhibitor) signaling network to kill AML cells...

B-cell lymphoma 2 (Bcl-2) family proteins are potential drug targets in cancer and have a relatively flat and flexible binding site. ABT-199 is one of the most promising selective Bcl-2 inhibitors, and A-1155463 selectively inhibits Bcl-XL. Although the amino acid sequences of the binding sites of these two inhibitors are similar, the inhibitors selectively bind the target protein. In order to determine the origin of the selectivity of these inhibitors, we conducted molecular dynamics simulations using protein-inhibitor modeling...

The crosstalk between chronic lymphocytic leukemia (CLL) cells and tumor microenvironment is essential for leukemic clone maintenance, supporting CLL cells survival, proliferation and protection from drug-induced apoptosis. Over the past years, the role of several soluble factors involved in these processes has been studied. CLL cells express higher levels of endothelin 1 (ET-1) and ETA receptor as compared to normal B cells. Upon ET-1 stimulation, CLL cells improve their survival and proliferation and reduce their sensitivity to the phosphoinositide-3-kinase δ inhibitor idelalisib and to fludarabine...

Impaired apoptosis plays a central role in cancer development and limits the efficacy of conventional cytotoxic therapies. Deepening understanding of how opposing factions of the BCL-2 protein family switch on apoptosis and of their structures has driven development of a new class of cancer drugs that targets various pro-survival members by mimicking their natural inhibitors, the BH3-only proteins. These 'BH3 mimetic' drugs seem destined to become powerful new weapons in the arsenal against cancer. Successful clinical trials of venetoclax/ABT-199, a specific inhibitor of BCL-2, have led to its approval for a refractory form of chronic lymphocytic leukaemia and to scores of on-going trials for other malignancies...

Members of the B-cell lymphoma 2 (BCL-2) gene family are attractive targets for cancer therapy as they play a key role in promoting cell survival, a long-since established hallmark of cancer. Clinical utility for selective inhibition of specific anti-apoptotic Bcl-2 family proteins has recently been realized with the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) approval of venetoclax (formerly ABT-199/GDC-0199) in relapsed chronic lymphocytic leukemia (CLL) with 17p deletion. Despite the impressive monotherapy activity in CLL, such responses have rarely been observed in other B-cell malignancies, and preclinical data suggest that combination therapies will be needed in other indications...

Background: CNS tumors, including medulloblastoma and pediatric glioblastoma (pGBM) account for the majority of solid pediatric malignancies. There remains an unmet need to identify novel treatment approaches in poor prognosis and relapsed pediatric brain tumors, where therapeutic options are limited. Small-molecule B-cell lymphoma 2 (BCL-2) family inhibitors may enhance tumor cell killing when combined with conventional and targeted chemotherapeutic agents. We investigated the effect of disrupting BCL-2 and B cell lymphoma-extra large (BCL-XL) protein function using ABT-263, ABT-199 and WEHI-539 in medulloblastoma and pGBM cells following treatment with MLN8237, an Aurora kinase inhibitor under investigation as a novel agent for the treatment of malignant brain tumors...

In 1984, we investigated the t(14;18) chromosomal translocations that frequently occur in patients with follicular lymphoma. We first identified a locus on chromosome 18 involved in these translocations with the chromosome 14 containing the immunoglobulin heavy chain locus. Within this region on chromosome 18, we then discovered a gene that we called BCL2, which was activated by the translocations. Since that time, many studies determined that BCL2 is one of the most important oncogenes involved in cancer by inhibiting apoptosis...

T-cell prolymphocytic leukemia (T-PLL) is a rare and aggressive T-lymphoid malignancy usually refractory to current treatment strategies and associated with short overall survival. By applying next-generation functional testing of primary patient-derived lymphoma cells using a library of 106 US Food and Drug Administration (FDA)-approved anticancer drugs or compounds currently in clinical development, we set out to identify novel effective treatments for T-PLL patients. We found that the B-cell lymphoma 2 (BCL-2) inhibitor venetoclax (ABT-199) demonstrated the strongest T-PLL-specific response when comparing individual ex vivo drug response in 86 patients with refractory hematologic malignancies...

BH3 mimetics are a promising new class of anticancer agents that inhibit antiapoptotic BCL-2 proteins. Here, we report that BH3 mimetics selectively targeting BCL-xL, BCL-2 or MCL-1 (i.e. A-1331852, ABT-199, A-1210477) act in concert with multiple chemotherapeutic agents (i.e. vincristine (VCR), etoposide (ETO), doxorubicin, actinomycin D and cyclophosphamide) to induce apoptosis in rhabdomyosarcoma (RMS) cells. Similarly, genetic knockdown of BCL-xL primes RMS cells to VCR- or ETO-induced cell death, highlighting the importance of BCL-xL in mediating chemotherapy resistance in RMS...

Wild-type p53 tumor suppressor activity in neuroblastoma tumors is hampered by increased MDM2 activity, making selective MDM2 antagonists an attractive therapeutic strategy for this childhood malignancy. Since monotherapy in cancer is generally not providing long-lasting clinical responses, we here aimed to identify small molecule drugs that synergize with idasanutlin (RG7388). To this purpose we evaluated 15 targeted drugs in combination with idasanutlin in three p53 wild type neuroblastoma cell lines and identified the BCL2 inhibitor venetoclax (ABT-199) as a promising interaction partner...

Mutations in the interleukin-7 receptor (IL7R) or the JAK3 kinase occur frequently in T-cell acute lymphoblastic leukemia (T-ALL) and both are able to drive cellular transformation and the development of T-ALL in mouse models. However, the signal transduction pathways downstream of JAK3 mutations remain poorly characterized. Here, we describe the phosphoproteome downstream of the JAK3(L857Q)/(M511I) activating mutations in transformed Ba/F3 lymphocyte cells. Signaling pathways regulated by JAK3 mutants were assessed following acute inhibition of JAK1/JAK3 using the JAK kinase inhibitors ruxolitinib or tofacitinib...

Venetoclax (ABT-199) is a Bcl-2-specific BH3-mimetic that has shown significant promise in certain subtypes of CLL as well as in several other hematologic malignancies. As in the case of essentially all targeted agents, intrinsic or acquired resistance to this agent generally occurs, prompting the search for new strategies capable of circumventing this problem. A logical approach to this challenge involves rational combination strategies designed to disable preexisting or induced compensatory survival pathways...

Acute myeloid leukemia (AML) remains a therapeutic challenge. Despite ongoing research, the standard therapy for AML has not changed significantly in the past four decades. With the identification of cytogenetic and molecular abnormalities, several promising therapeutic agents are currently being investigated. FLT3 mutation is a well-recognized target seen in 30% of the cytogenetically normal AML. More recently, the BCL2 family of anti-apoptotic proteins have also generated great interest as a therapeutic target...
