Figure 7

2-DG up-regulates TRAIL-R2 and enhances TRAIL-induced apoptosis in fresh melanoma isolates. A, Mel-CA and Mel-MC with (thick open histograms) or without (thin open histograms) treatment with 2-DG (10 μM) for 16 hours were subjected to measurement of the cell surface TRAIL-R2 expression in flow cytomety. The filled histograms are isotype controls. B, Whole cell lysates from Mel-CA and Mel-MC with or without treatment with 2-DG (10 μM) for 16 hours were subjected to Western blot analysis. C, Freshly isolated melanoma cells were treated with 2-DG (10 μM), TRAIL (200 ng/ml), or the combination of both for 24 hours were subjected to measurement of apoptosis by the propidium iodide method using flow cytometry. D, Freshly isolated melanoma cells were treated with a TRAIL-R2/Fc chimera (10 μg/ml) for 1 hour before the addition of 2-DG (10 μM) and TRAIL (200 ng/ml) for a further 24 hours. Apoptosis was measured by the propidium iodide method using flow cytometry. The data shown are either the mean ± SE (C & D), or representative (A & B), of three individual experiments.
