Abstract :
Oridonin was reported to induce L929 cell apoptosis via ROS-mediated mitochondrial and ERK pathways; however, the precise mechanisms by which oridonin induces cell death remain unclear. Herein, we found that oridonin treatment induced an increase in G2/M phase cell percentage. And, G2/M phase arrest was associated with down-regulation of cell cycle related cdc2, cdc25c and cyclinB levels, as well as up-regulation of p21 and p-cdc2 levels. In addition, we discovered that interruption of p53 activation decreased oridonin-induced apoptosis, and blocking ERK by specific inhibitors or siRNA suppressed oridonin-induced p53 activation. Moreover, inhibition of PTK, protein kinase C, Ras, Raf or JNK activation increased oridonin-induced apoptosis. Also, the level of Ras, Raf or JNK was down-regulated by oridonin, and the inhibition of PTK, Ras, Raf activation decreased p-JNK level. In conclusion, oridonin induces L929 cell G2/M arrest and apoptosis, which is regulated by promoting ERK–p53 apoptotic pathway and suppressing PTK-mediated survival pathway.
