Venenum bufonis has been used as an antitumor drug in China for many years. Bufotalin, as an active component of Venenum bufonis, has been proven to exhibit antitumor effects in cancer types. In the present study, the effect of bufotalin on the human melanoma skin cancer cell line A375 was analyzed using MTT and colony formation assays. Bufotalin significantly inhibited the proliferation and colony formation of A375 cells. Further studies demonstrated that bufotalin significantly upregulated the protein levels of ATM serine/threonine kinase and Chk2, downregulated CDC25C protein expression, and subsequently inhibited CDK1 expression, leading to cell cycle arrest at the G2/M phase of the A375 cells. Furthermore, bufotalin significantly increased BAX expression levels, decreased BCL‑2 expression, and then upregulated apoptosis‑related proteins, caspase‑3/-9, followed by A375 cell apoptosis. Taken together, these results show that bufotalin induces cell cycle arrest at the G2/M phase and cell apoptosis, resulting in the inhibition of A375 cell proliferation, thereby suggesting that bufotalin may be utilized in melanoma treatment

Chronic inflammatory autoimmune disease Sjogren’s syndrome (SS) is characterized by the reduced secretion of exocrine glands, suggesting strategies targeting inflammation to be a potential option for SS therapy. Bufotalin, an active constituent of Bufadienolides, exerts potent antitumor effects with unknown effects on autoimmune diseases including SS. This study aims to investigate whether bufotalin possesses therapeutic potentials to SS and the underlying mechanisms. The experimental Sjogren’s syndrome (ESS) murine model was constructed by SG-immunization and murine naïve CD4+ T cells were cultured under Th17 polarization conditions with or without low doses of bufotalin treatment. Saliva flow rate was measured, and flow cytometry was applied to analyze T cell subpopulations. ELISA was conducted to determine the levels of targeted inflammatory cytokines. Bufotalin-treated ESS mice showed higher saliva flow rates, lower serum levels of autoantibodies (anti-M3R and anti-SSA IgG), lower serum levels of pro-inflammatory cytokines, as well as lower Th17 cell population from spleens and cervical lymph nodes. Additionally, in vitro study showed that bufotalin inhibits Th17 polarization and secretion of cytokines IL-17 and IFN-γ. Bufotalin at a low dose significantly ameliorates ESS development, possibly via inhibiting pro-inflammatory Th17 population and secretion of inflammatory cytokines during ESS pathogenesis.

The search for novel and more efficient chemo-agents against malignant osteoblastoma is important. In this study, we examined the potential anti-osteoblastoma function of bufotalin, and studied the underlying mechanisms. Our results showed that bufotalin induced osteoblastoma cell death and apoptosis in dose- and time-dependent manners. Further, bufotalin induced endoplasmic reticulum (ER) stress activation in osteoblastoma cells, the latter was detected by the induction of C/EBP homologous protein (CHOP), phosphorylation of inositol-requiring enzyme 1 (IRE1) and PKR-like endoplasmic reticulum kinase (PERK), as well as caspase-12 activation. Conversely, the ER stress inhibitor salubrinal, the caspase-12 inhibitor z-ATAD-fmk as well as CHOP depletion by shRNA significantly inhibited bufotalin-induced osteoblastoma cell death and apoptosis. Finally, by using a mice xenograft model, we demonstrated that bufotalin inhibited U2OS osteoblastoma cell growth in vivo. In summary, our results suggest that ER stress contributes to bufotalin-induced apoptosis in osteoblastoma cells. Bufotalin might be investigated as a novel anti-osteoblastoma agent.
