Resistance to the broad spectrum of chemotherapeutic agents in cancer cell lines and tumors has been called multiple drug resistance (MDR). In this study, the molecular mechanisms of resistance to two anticancer agents (paclitaxel and vincristine) in mammary carcinoma cell line MCF-7 were investigated. Drug resistant sublines to paclitaxel (MCF-7/Pac) and vincristine (MCF-7/Vinc) that were developed from sensitive MCF-7 cells (MCF-7/S) were used. cDNA microarray analysis was performed for the RNA samples of sensitive and resistant cells in duplicate experiments. GeneSpring GX 7.3.1 Software was used in data analysis. The results indicated that the upregulation of MDR] gene is the dominating mechanism of the paclitaxel and vincristine drug resistance. Additionally the upregulation of the genes encoding the detoxifying enzymes (i.e. GSTP1) was observed. Significant downregulation of apoptotic genes (i.e. PDCD2/4/6/8) and upregulation of some cell cycle regulatory genes (CDKN2A, CCNA2 etc.) was seen which may be in close relation to MDR in breast cancer. Drug resistant cancer cells exhibit different gene expression patterns depending on drug treatment, and each drug resistance phenotype is probably genetically different. Further functional studies are needed to demonstrate the complete set of genes contributing to the drug resistance phenotype in breast cancer cells.

Resistance to broad spectrum of chemotherapeutic agents in cancer cell lines and tumors has been called multiple drug resistance (MDR). In this study, the molecular mechanisms of resistance to two anticancer agents (paclitaxel and vincristine) in mammary carcinoma cell line MCF-7 were investigated. MCF-7 cells were selected in the presence of paclitaxel and vincristine by stepwise dose increments. The cell viability and growth profiles of resistant sublines were examined. As the resistance indices increased...
Effect of cobalt-60 (gamma radiation) on multidrug-resistant multiple myeloma cell lines

Emergence of resistance to chemotherapy and radiotherapy is a major obstacle for the successful treatment of MM (multiple myeloma). Prednisone, vincristine and melphalan are commonly used chemotherapeutic agents for the treatment of MM. In the current study, we examined the presence of possible cross-resistance between these drugs and gamma (gamma) radiation. Prednisone, vincristine and melphalan resistant RPMI-8226 and U-266 MM cells were generated by stepwise increasing concentrations of the drugs. The se...
A comparative study on EpCAM antibody immobilization on gold surfaces and microfluidic channels for the detection of circulating tumor cells
Cetin, Didem; Okan, Meltem; Bat, Erhan; Külah, Haluk (2020-04-01)
Detection of circulating tumor cells (CTCs) from the bloodstream holds great importance to diagnose cancer at early stages. However, CTCs being extremely rare in blood makes them difficult to reach. In this paper, we introduced different surface modification techniques for the enrichment and detection of MCF-7 in microfluidic biosensor applications using gold surface and EpCAM antibody. Mainly, two different mechanisms were employed to immobilize the antibodies; covalent bonding and bioaffinity interaction....
DETERMINATION OF THE RELATIONSHIP BETWEEN DOXORUBICIN RESISTANCE AND WNT SIGNALING PATHWAY IN HELA AND K562 CELL LINES
Mutlu, Pelin; Pourianazar, Negar Taghavi; Yucel, Meral; Gündüz, Ufuk (2018-01-01)
Activation of the Wnt signaling in some types of cancer and its relation with chemotherapy resistance is a very interesting issue that has been emphasized in recent years. Although, it is known that increase in the activity of beta-catenin is important in blast transformation and drug resistance, the underlying mechanisms are still unclear. In this study, changes in the expression levels of 186 genes that are thought to be important in drug resistance and Wnt signaling pathways were determined by using qPCR...
INVESTIGATION OF CLONAL EVOLUTION IN CAPECITABINE RESISTANT CACO-2 AND IRINOTECAN RESISTANT HT-29 CELL LINES BY USING CELLULAR BARCODING TECHNOLOGY
Danışık, Nurseda; Acar, Ahmet; Özen, Can; Department of Biotechnology (2022-10-31)
The development of drug resistance in tumor cells is one of the biggest problems currently in the clinic. As the pace of drug discovery slows and each new drug becomes increasingly expensive to bring to market, it is becoming clearer that better model systems and an understanding of drug resistance mechanisms are needed for second-line therapies. The overall aim of this project is to investigate the clonal evolution and drug resistance in colorectal cancer cell lines Caco-2 and HT-29 by using cellular barco...
