Autophagy is an evolutionarily conserved mechanism to protect the cells from unfavorable environmental conditions. Inhibition of autophagy has been contemplated as a novel strategy to enhance anticancer efficacy of existing chemotherapeutic agents. We previously reported that pulsatilla saponin D (PSD) was a potent autophagy inhibitor. However, its anticancer potential as adjuvant and underlying mechanisms are still unknown. In this study, we identified that PSD induced the formation of autophagosome in MCF-7 and MDA-MB-231 breast cancer cells. However, PSD alone and particularly co-treatment with camptothecin remarkably increased p62 protein levels, indicating that PSD strongly inhibited the autophagic cargo degradation. The mechanistic study indicated that PSD profoundly abolished the co-localization of EGFP-LC3 and lysosomal-specific probe LysoTracker Red, suggesting that the autophagosome-lysosome fusion was blocked by PSD, which is similar to the action of chloroquine. In addition, PSD significantly increased lysosomal pH and inhibited the activation of lysosomal cathepsins in both breast cancer cell lines. Furthermore, the accrued p62 resulted in accumulation of ubiquitinated proteins owing to the interaction with p62 and delivery to the malfunctioned autophagosome by PSD. Finally, we demonstrated that PSD synergistically enhanced the anticancer activity of camptothecin (CPT) in cultured breast cancer cells and in mouse xenograft tumor models. Our results indicated that PSD inhibited autophagic flux via blocking autophagosome-lysosome fusion and lysosomal acidification, which may confer a synergistic anti-breast cancer activity of PSD and CPT.

Clinical treatment using epidermal growth factor receptor-tyrosine kinase inhibitors (EGFR-TKIs) such as gefitinib or erlotinib has been applied in patients with non-small cell lung cancers (NSCLCs). Unfortunately, acquired drug resistance emerges in these patients due to the amplification of the Met proto-oncogene, which may be a compensatory mechanism of NSCLCs against EGFR inhibition. To overcome this resistance, identification of new small-molecule natural compounds is crucial for cancer therapeutics. In this regard, SB365, saponin D from the root of Pulsatilla koreana which has been used as a traditional medicine in Korea for several diseases, has attracted wide interest. In the present study, SB365 effectively suppressed the proliferation of gefitinib-resistant HCC827GR NSCLC cells with Met amplification. Notably, our data revealed that SB365 inhibited the phosphorylation of Met and the downstream signaling pathway required for growth and survival in the Met-amplified HCC827GR cells. Moreover, SB365 suppressed the anchorage-independent growth, migration and invasion along with induction of apoptosis in the HCC827GR cells. Therefore, these results suggest that SB365 is good candidate as a natural product for use in the treatment of Met-amplified NSCLCs.

Pulsatilla koreana has been used as a traditional medicine for the treatment of various diseases. The purpose of this study was to determine whether SB365, Pulsatilla saponin D isolated from the root of Pulsatilla koreana inhibits the progression of pancreatic cancer. We found that SB365 strongly suppressed the growth and proliferation of 5 human pancreatic cancer cell lines (MIAPaCa-2, BXPC-3, PANC-1, AsPC-1 and HPAC). The apoptotic effect of SB365 was demonstrated by increased levels of cleaved caspase-3 and decreased Bcl-2 expression via mitochondrial membrane potential, as well as elevated numbers of terminal deoxynucleotidyl-transferase-mediated dUTP nick end labeling (TUNEL)-positive apoptotic cells. SB365 was also found to exert an anti-angiogenic effect by decreasing the expression of HIF-1α and VEGF, major factors of angiogenesis, which was confirmed by the suppression of tumor sphere formation of pancreatic cancer cells. An in vivo mouse xenograft study showed that SB365 significantly inhibited tumor growth through the induction of apoptosis and inhibition of angiogenesis with strong anticancer activity. Therefore, SB365 is a good candidate as a natural product for use in the treatment of pancreatic cancer.
