Abstract Our earlier studies have shown that simultaneous inhibition of glycolysis and pentose phosphate pathway using 2-deoxy-d-glucose (2-DG, an inhibitor of glycolysis) and 6-aminonicotinamide (6-AN, an inhibitor of pentose phosphate pathway) lead to metabolic oxidative stress (MOS), resulting in radiosensitization in malignant cells. Present study was carried out to investigate the effects of 2-DG and 6-AN on intricately regulated endogenous antioxidant defense against MOS during radiosensitization by this combination. Two human tumor cell lines {Head and Neck Squamous carcinoma (KB) and Glioma (BMG-1)} and one non-malignantly transformed cell line (human embryonic kidney, HEK) were used in this study. The presence of 2-DG and 6-AN (added just before irradiation) for 4h, significantly decreased the clonogenicity and metabolic viability of KB and BMG-1 cell lines, while no significant change was seen in HEK cells. Accumulation of ROS was observed only in malignant cell lines, which displayed a compromised redox status evident from enhanced NADP(+)/NADPH and GSSG/GSH ratios and a concomitant decrease in glutathione reductase level and activity at 24h following treatment. The levels and activities of Cu, Zn-SOD and Mn-SOD increased with MOS and were accompanied by a decreased GPx and unaltered catalase activity and level. These results suggest that non-coordinated expression of antioxidant defense, besides compromised redox status, led to selective radiosensitization in the malignant cells. 2010 Elsevier Ireland Ltd.
