Abstract

Microtubule interfering agents (MIAs) are anti-tumor drugs that inhibit microtubule dynamics, while kinesin spindle protein (KSP) inhibitors are substances that block the formation of the bipolar spindle during mitosis. All these compounds cause G2/M arrest and cell death. Using 2D-PAGE followed by Nano-LC-ESI-Q-ToF analysis, we found that MIAs such as vincristine (Oncovin) or paclitaxel (Taxol) and KSP inhibitors such as S-tritil-l-cysteine induce the phosphorylation of the nuclear protein p54(nrb) in HeLa cells. Furthermore, we demonstrate that cisplatin (Platinol), an anti-tumor drug that does not cause M arrest, does not induce this modification. We show that the G2/M arrest induced by MIAs is required for p54(nrb) phosphorylation. Finally, we demonstrate that CDK activity is required for MIA-induced phosphorylation of p54(nrb).
