AbstractThe endoplasmic reticulum (ER) stress response is a therapeutic target for pharmacologic intervention in cancer cells. We hypothesized that combining carfilzomib (CFZ), a proteasome inhibitor, and vorinostat (SAHA), a histone deacetylase (HDAC) inhibitor, would synergistically activate ER stress in non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC) cell lines, resulting in enhanced anti-tumor activity. Five NSCLC cell lines were treated with CFZ, SAHA, or the combination and cell proliferation measured using the MTT assay. Calcusyn software was utilized to determine the combination index as a measure of synergy. Cell viability and cytotoxicity were measured using trypan blue exclusion, CellTiter, and CytoTox assays. Western blot was used to measure markers of apoptosis, ER stress, and oxidative stress-related proteins. Reactive oxygen species (ROS) was measured using the fluorophore CM-H2DCFDA. Synergistic activity was observed for all cell lines following 48 and 72 h of combined treatment. H520 and A549 cell lines were used to assess viability and apoptosis. In both cell lines, increased death and cleaved caspase-3 were observed following combination treatment as compared with single-agent treatments. Combination therapy was associated with upregulation of ER stress-regulated proteins including activating transcription factor 4, GRP78/BiP, and C/EBP homologous protein. Both cell lines also showed increased ROS and the oxidative stress-related protein, heat shock protein 70. Combining proteasome inhibition with HDAC inhibition enhances ER stress, which may contribute to the synergistic anticancer activity observed in NSCLC cell lines. Further preclinical and clinical studies of CFZ + SAHA in NSCLC are warranted.
