Proteasome inhibition has emerged as a powerful option for the treatment of a number of malignancies including leukemias. However, Bortezomib showed limited single-agent activity for patients with leukemia. Here, we report for the first time that Bortezomib up-regulated a novel antiapoptotic protein, BAG3, in human leukemic cells. BAG3 gene knockdown with shRNA greatly potentiated the generation of apoptosis by Bortezomib in leukemia cells. Furthermore, BAG3 silencing enhanced the antitumor… CONTINUE READING
