Abstract: In a previous study, we showed that a novel anticancer drug, 1-(3-C-ethynyl-β-D-ribo-pentofuranosyl)cytosine (TAS106, ECyd) increased the anti-tumour efficacy of X-irradiation. However, its effects on hypoxic cells in tumours remain unclarified. Herein we show that TAS106 enhances the induction of apoptosis in X-irradiated human gastric adenocarcinoma MKN45 and MKN28 cells under hypoxia in vitro. At the same time, the accumulation of HIF-1α observed under hypoxia was shown to be decreased to the level of normoxia in the presence of 0.1 μM TAS106. To study the function of HIF-1α protein in apoptosis of hypoxic cells, we employed an HIF-1α reductive approach using its specific antisense oligodeoxynucleotide. The reduction of HIF-1α gene expression dramatically enhanced X-ray-induced apoptosis in hypoxic cells. In in vivo experiments in which MKN45 cells were transplanted into severe combined immunodeficient (SCID) mice, TAS106 (0.5 mg/kg) suppressed HIF-1α expression and subsequently reduced the area of the hypoxic region in the tumour, and enhanced the induction of apoptosis in the hypoxic region when combined with 2 Gy of X-irradiation. These results suggest the possibility that TAS106 acts as a potent radiosensitiser via the inhibition of HIF-1α expression and can be a useful agent against radiotherapy-resistant hypoxic cells in solid tumours.
