Abstract

The effect of the single-chain alkylphospholipid perifosine was analyzed in p 53wild-type (SKW6.4, OCI and MOLM), p 53mutated (BJAB, MAVER) and p 53null (HL-60) leukemic cell lines. Perifosine promoted cytotoxicity with a combination of apoptosis induction in all cell lines and cell cycle block at the G 2M checkpoint, which was selectively observed in p 53mutated BJAB and MAVER cell lines. At the molecular level, perifosine induced hypophosphorylation of retinoblastoma protein and the degradation of E2F1 protein in p53mutated but not in p 53wild-type cells. These data indicate that perifosine potentially represents an innovative therapeutic approach for p53mutated hematological malignancies.
