Inhibition of carbonic anhydrase activity modifies the toxicity of doxorubicin and melphalan in tumour cells in vitro.

Abstract:

Carbonic anhydrase IX (CA IX) is a hypoxia-regulated enzyme, overexpressed in many types of human cancer. CA IX is involved in pH homeostasis, contributing to extracellular acidification and tumourigenesis. Acidification of the extracellular milieu can impact upon cellular uptake of chemotherapeutic drugs by favouring weak acids (e.g. melphalan), but limiting access of weak bases (e.g. doxorubicin). We investigated whether alterations of CA IX activity affected anti-cancer drug uptake and tox...
