Title
Cell cycle arrest and apoptosis of OVCAR-3 and MCF-7 cells induced by co-immobilized TNF-α plus IFN-γ on polystyrene and the role of p53 activation
Abstract

The aim of this study is to reveal the biological mechanism for high anti-cancer efficiency of co-immobilized TNF-α plus IFN-γ polymeric drug (co-immobilized drug) in mediating two gynecologic cancer cell lines: MCF-7 and OVCAR-3. The co-immobilized drug is prepared by mixing 10 ng/ml TNF-α plus 10 ng/ml IFN-γ which are then photo-immobilized onto cell culture polystyrene plates. The drug compositions and microstructures are characterized by Fourier transform infrared spectroscopy and scanning electron microscopy. The MCF-7 and OVCAR-3 cell cycle arrest and programmed cell death are checked by flow cytometry, and the expression of p53 is probed by immunofluorescence staining. The phosphorylation sites of the p53 regulation and the apoptosis key protein expressions of caspase3, 8 and 9 are detected by western blot assay. Our data show that, in case of short treatment time (48 h) at low cytokine concentrations (20 ng/ml), the co-immobilized drug demonstrates visible effects in comparison with the treatment using TNF-α plus IFN-γ freely attached on the polymeric plate (free drug). It is revealed that the co-immobilized drug leads to significant cell arrest in the S phase or G1 and G2 phase and offer high efficiency in mediating a caspase-dependent apoptosis via p53 transcriptional regulation. Moreover, upon the treatment by the co-immobilized drug, the two gynecologic cancer cell lines show different phosphorylation sites of p53 and then different caspase-dependent apoptosis pathways. The present work sheds deep insights into the p53 regulation mechanism responsible for the high anti-cancer efficiency of the co-immobilized TNF-α plus IFN-γ polymeric drug against MCF-7 and OVCAR-3.
