Inhibitors of Bcl-XL/Bcl-2 can induce autophagy by releasing the autophagic protein Beclin 1 from its complexes with these proteins. Here we report a novel compound targeting the BH3 binding groove of Bcl-XL/Bcl-2, Z18, which efficiently induces autophagy-associated cell death in HeLa cells, without apparent apoptosis. Unexpectedly, the inhibition of Beclin 1 and phosphatidylinositol 3-kinase have no obvious effect on Z18-induced autophagy in HeLa cells, implying that it is a non-canonical Beclin 1-independent autophagy. Meanwhile, the accumulation of autophagosomes is positively correlated with Z18-induced cell death and the full flux of autophagy is not necessary.
