General description

Etoposide is synthesised from podophyllotoxins of plants.

Application

Etoposide has been used:
  • to prepare drug stock solution in dimethyl sulfoxide (DMSO) and also to profile and compare the sensitivity of DT40 mutant cells
  • to incubate cells for cell viability assay
  • to treat neuro-2A cells to induce programmed cell death

Biochem/physiol Actions

Etoposide is used in treating advanced testicular cancer, Kaposi′s sarcoma, non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC), SCLC (small cell lung cancer) and lymphoma.
Etoposide is an antitumor agent that complexes with topoisomerase II and DNA to enhance double-strand and single-strand cleavage of DNA and reversibly inhibit religation. Blocks the cell cycle in in S-phase and G2-phase of the cell cycle; induces apoptosis in normal and tumor cell lines; inhibits synthesis of the oncoprotein Mdm2 and induces apoptosis in tumor lines that overexpress Mdm2.
