Abstract

It has been reported that [3-(1,1'-biphenyl-4-yl)-2-(1-methyl-5-dimethylamino-pentylamino)-3,4-dihydroquinazolin-4-yl]-N-benzylacetamide 2hydrochloride (KYS05090), a selective T-type Ca2+ channel blocker, reduces tumor volume and weight in the A549 xenograft model, but the molecular mechanism of cell death has not yet been elucidated. In this study, KYS05090 induced autophagy- and apoptosis-mediated cell death in human lung adenocarcinoma A549 cells. Although KYS05090 decreased intracellular Ca2+ levels, it was not directly related with KYS05090-induced cell death. In addition, KYS05090 generated intracellular reactive oxygen species (ROS) and reduced glucose uptake, and catalase and methyl pyruvate prevented KYS05090-induced cell death. These results indicate that KYS05090 can lead to autophagy and apoptosis in A549 cells through ROS generation by inhibiting glucose uptake. Our findings suggest that KYS05090 has potential chemotherapeutic value for the treatment of lung cancer.
