Histone deacetylase inhibitors (HDIs) have shown promise as candidate radiosensitizers for many types of cancers. However, the mechanisms of action are not well understood, and whether they could sensitize multiple myeloma (MM) to radiation therapy is unclear. In this study, we demonstrate that Suberoylanilide hydroxamic acid (SAHA) at low concentrations has minimal cytotoxic effects, yet can significantly increase radiosensitivity of multiple myeloma (MM) cells. SAHA appears to block RAD51 protein response to ionizing radiation (IR), consistent with an inhibitory effect on the formation of RAD51 focus in irradiated MM cells. These effects of SAHA on RAD51 focus are independent of cell cycle distribution changes. Furthermore, we demonstrate that SAHA selectively inhibits the homology-directed repair (HDR) pathway. The results of this study suggest that SAHA, a recently approved HDI in clinical trials for malignancies, at lower concentrations may act as a radiosensitizer via disruption of the RAD51-dependent HDR pathway.
