We studied cytotoxic activity of a new NO-releasing tetranitrosyl binuclear iron complex with cysteamine (CysAm) for human tumor cells, the relationship between the expression of O6-methylguanine-DNA methyltransferase (MGMT) and cell sensitivity to CysAm, and apoptosis-inducing capacity of this preparation. It was found that histogenetically different cell lines are characterized by different sensitivity to CysAm, and this parameter correlated with the basal level of MGMT. CysAm induced apoptosis via activation of caspases 3 and 7. These data suggest that CysAm can be considered as a potential antitumor agent, but definitive conclusions can be made after preclinical trials.
