|In this study, YC-1, a soluble guanylate cyclase stimulator, suppressed viability in Cisplatin-resistant human oral cancer CAR cells via inhibiting cell proliferation, G0/G1 phase arrest and triggering apoptosis. Results from flow cytometry analysis indicated that YC-1 promoted G0/G1 phase arrest and provoked apoptosis in CAR cells. YC-1 treatment up-regulated p21 and down-regulated cyclin A, D, E, CDK2 and protein expression. YC-1 caused apoptotic cell death and DNA fragmentation evidenced by DAPI/TUNEL staining. YC-1 time-dependently disrupted the mitochondrial membrane potential (ΔΨm). It enhanced the protein levels of cytochrome c, Bax, Bak as well as attenuated Bcl-2 expression in CAR cells. Our results support the potentially therapeutic application of YC-1 in drug resistant oral cancer in the future.|
