Teniposide-resistant CEM cells, which express mutant DNA topoisomerase II alpha, when treated with non-complex-stabilizing inhibitors of the enzyme, display no cross-resistance and reveal aberrant functions of the mutant enzyme.

We have examined the effects of a group of DNA topoisomerase II (topo II) inhibitors, merbarone, aclarubicin, SN22995, RP60475F, and fostriecin, in CCRF-CEM cells and two sublines, CEM/VM-1 and CEM/VM-1-5, that were selected for increasing resistance to teniposide (VM-26). The teniposide-resistant sublines have been termed "at-MDR" for altered topo II-associated multidrug resistance. These topo II inhibitors differ from the "classic" inhibitors such as teniposide in that they do not stabilize… CONTINUE READING
