Bottom Line: G1 arrest was p21(WAF1/CIP1)- and p53-dependent.Lack of arrest in G1 was not related to p53 mutation or binding to SV40 Tag, except in one HMCL presenting a missense mutation at codon 248.These results may help us to understand mesothelioma and develop new treatments.

ABSTRACT
Knowledge of the function of the cell cycle checkpoints in tumour cells may be important to develop treatment strategies for human cancers. The protein p53 is an important factor that regulates cell cycle progression and apoptosis in response to drugs. In human malignant mesothelioma, p53 is generally not mutated, but may be inactivated by SV40 early region T antigen (SV40 Tag). However, the function of p53 has not been investigated in mesothelioma cells. Here, we investigated the function of the cell cycle checkpoints in six human mesothelioma cell lines (HMCLs) by studying the cell distribution in the different phases of the cell cycle by flow cytometry, and expression of cell cycle proteins, p53, p21(WAF1/CIP1) and p27(KIP1). In addition, we studied p53 gene mutations and expression of SV40 Tag. After exposure to gamma-radiation, HMCLs were arrested either in one or both phases of the cell cycle, demonstrating a heterogeneity in cell cycle control. G1 arrest was p21(WAF1/CIP1)- and p53-dependent. Lack of arrest in G1 was not related to p53 mutation or binding to SV40 Tag, except in one HMCL presenting a missense mutation at codon 248. These results may help us to understand mesothelioma and develop new treatments.

Kinetics of p53 and p21WAF1/CIP1 expression in HMCLs (BL, CR and FR) showing an arrest at the G1/S transition in response to γ-radiation. Cells were exposed to 6 Gy as described in Materials and Methods and protein extracts were analysed at the indicated times postirradiation. Densitometric analyses are expressed as in Figure 3.

Mentions: p53 (A) and p21WAF1/CIP1 (B) protein expression in HMCLs after exposure to several doses of γ-radiation. At 24 h after irradiation, protein extracts were subjected to SDS-PAGE electrophoresis followed by immunoblot analysis with antibodies against the corresponding antigens. ECL detection. Densitometric analyses of p53 and p21WAF1/CIP1 expression are reported on the top of the corresponding bands as percentage of the amount of protein expressed in untreated cells.
