This article is from Oncology Letters, volume 5.AbstractEffective chemotherapy against esophageal carcinoma is considered achievable with a combination of 5-fluorouracil (5-FU) and cisplatin (CDDP). However, chemo-therapy remains ineffective in certain patients. The aim of this study was to clarify the factors which affect sensitivity to 5-FU and CDDP. The effects of factors known to influence sensitivity to 5-FU and CDDP, namely transporters, DNA repair enzymes and metabolic enzymes, were examined. mRNA levels of four transporters, SLC22A2, SLC23A2, ABCB1 and ABCC2, two DNA repair-related enzymes, Rad51 and MSH2, and one metabolic enzyme, dihydropyrimidine dehydrogenase (DPYD), showed a strong correlation (|r|>0.7) with IC50 values for 5-FU. In addition, the mRNA levels of ABCC2, MSH2 and DPYD showed a strong correlation (|r|>0.7) with the IC50 values for CDDP. Gimeracil, a DPYD inhibitor, enhanced the sensitivity of some cells to 5-FU but decreased the sensitivity of all the cells to CDDP. The inhibitory effects of ABCC2 with MK571 did not correspond to those observed in the correlation analysis. In conclusion, mRNA levels of SLC22A2, SLC23A2, ABCB1, ABCC2, Rad51, MSH2 and DPYD were confirmed to be strongly correlated with IC50 values for 5-FU, and mRNA levels of ABCC2, MSH2 and DPYD were confirmed to be strongly correlated with IC50 values for CDDP. In addition, the inhibition of DPYD appeared to affect the cytotoxicity of CDDP.
