This study describes characteristics of a mitomycin C (MMC)-resistant human bladder cancer cell line, J82/MMC-2, which was established by repeated in vitro exposures of a 6-fold MMC-resistant variant (J82/MMC) to 18 nM MMC. A 9.6-fold higher concentration of MMC was required to kill 50% of the J82/MMC-2 sub-line compared with parental cells (J82/WT). NADPH(More)
This study was undertaken to elucidate the mechanism(s) of cross-resistance to cisplatin (CDDP) in a mitomycin C (MMC)-resistant human bladder cancer cell line, J82/MMC. The J82/MMC cell line displayed 2- to 3-fold cross-resistance to CDDP and carboplatin when compared to the parental J82/WT cells. Drug uptake studies revealed that cross-resistance to CDDP(More)
This study was undertaken to elucidate the mechanism(s) of potentiation of cisplatin (CDDP) cytotoxicity by interferon alpha-2a (IFN alpha-2a) in human squamous carcinoma cell lines SCC-25 and SCC-4. IFN alpha-2a treatment significantly increased the cytotoxicity of CDDP in both cell lines in a dose-dependent manner. In SCC-25 cells, the cytotoxicity of(More)
