PURPOSE: Human Raji cells treated with fludarabine nucleoside (2-FaraA, 3 μM) undergo apoptosis with accumulation of p53 in the nuclei as multiple phosphorylated isoforms and C-terminal truncated derivatives. Changes induced by 2-FaraA in the levels of p53, p63 and p73 in the nuclear, cytosolic and mitochondrial fractions have been determined in 4 human B-lymphoid cell lines that are TP53-functional (Raji and IM9) and TP53-mutated (MEC1 and U266). EXPERIMENTAL DESIGN: The B-lymphoid cell lines were treated with 2-FaraA (3 μM, 24 h, 48 h) and viability determined. Protein extracts of sub-cellular fractions from 2-FaraA-treated cells were analysed by 1D and 2D electrophoresis, multiple phosphorylated isoforms and truncated derivatives were identified by Western blots for p53, p63 and p73. RESULTS: p53 and p63 were present in all 3 fractions, while p73 was only detected in nuclei. After treatment with 2-FaraA, nuclear p53, p63 and p73 accumulated as multiple phosphorylated isoforms and truncated derivatives. The association of p63 with mitochondria in human cells is novel. CONCLUSIONS AND CLINICAL RELEVANCE: Comprehensive information on the sub-cellular distributions and responses of p53, p63 and p73 to 2-FaraA provides additional insight into mechanisms for induction of apoptosis in the treatment of B-lymphoproliferative disorders with fludarabine.
