A magnetite nanoparticle, NPrCAP/M, was produced for intracellular hyperthermia treatment of melanoma by conjugating N-propionyl-cysteaminylphenol (NPrCAP) with magnetite and used for the study of selective targeting and degradation of melanoma cells. NPrCAP/M, like NPrCAP, was integrated as a substrate in the oxidative reaction by mushroom tyrosinase. Melanoma, but not non-melanoma, cells incorporated larger amounts of iron than magnetite from NPrCAP/M. When mice bearing a B16F1 melanoma and a lymphoma on opposite flanks were given NPrCAP/M, iron was observed only in B16F1 melanoma cells and iron particles (NPrCAP/M) were identified within late-stage melanosomes by electron microscopy. When cells were treated with NPrCAP/M or magnetite and heated to 43 degrees C by an external alternating magnetic field (AMF), melanoma cells were degraded 1.7- to 5.4-fold more significantly by NPrCAP/M than by magnetite. Growth of transplanted B16 melanoma was suppressed effectively by NPrCAP/M-mediated hyperthermia, suggesting a clinical application of NPrCAP/M to lesional therapy for melanoma. Finally, melanoma cells treated with NPrCAP/M plus AMF showed little sub-G1 fraction and no caspase 3 activation, suggesting that the NPrCAP/M-mediated hyperthermia induced non-apoptotic cell death. These results suggest that NPrCAP/M may be useful in targeted therapy for melanoma by inducing non-apoptotic cell death after appropriate heating by the AMF.
