Abstract Previously we demonstrated that heat shock protein 27 (hsp27) overexpression confers resistance to the chemotherapeutic agent doxorubicin in MDA-MB-231 breast cancer cells. Since induction of apoptosis is one underlying mechanism of chemotherapeutic drug action, we investigated the effect of hsp27 overexpression on doxorubicin-induced apoptosis, finding that hsp27 protects MDA-MB-231 cells from apoptosis. We also examined expression of the doxorubicin target, topoisomerase II (topo II), in control and hsp27-overexpressing stable transfectants, as topo II expression is important for both drug sensitivity and the initiation of apoptosis by doxorubicin. The relative levels of both topo IIalpha and beta were higher in the controls than the hsp27-overexpressing clones, suggesting that the apoptotic protective effect of hsp27 overexpression in MDA-MB-231 cells is associated with altered topo II expression.
