Paclitaxel is a potent anticancer agent known to promote microtubule (MT) assembly, inhibit MT depolymerization, and change MT dynamics required for mitosis and cell proliferation.

IC50 & Target

IC50: 4 nM (MT)

In Vitro

Paclitaxel at 0.1, 0.5, and 1 μM reduces the proliferation and survival of CCRF-HSB-2 cells in a dose-dependent fashion and that the IC50 value of taxol is about 0.25 μM[1]. Paclitaxel directly associates with the endoplasmic reticulum to stimulate the release of calcium into the cytosol, contributing to the induction of apoptosis[2].

In Vivo

In a SCID mouse xenograft model, low dose metronomic Paclitaxel treatment decreases lung dissemination of EGI-1 cells without significantly affecting their local tumor growth[3]. Low doses of paclitaxel promot liver metastasis in mouse xenografts, which correlats with changes in estrogen metabolism in the host liver[4].

Kinase Assay

To determine which caspases are involved in apoptosis induced by taxol, caspase-3 inhibitor (DEVD-CHO), caspase-6 inhibitor (Z-VEID-FMK), caspase-8 inhibitor (Z-IETD-FMK or IETD-CHO), caspase-9 inhibitors (Z-LEHD-FMK or LEHD-CHO), and caspase-10 inhibitor (Z-AEVD-FMK) are used. These caspase inhibitors are dissolved in dimethyl sulfoxide (Me2SO); the final concentration of Me2SO is 0.1%. Cells (5×105) are preincubated in the presence or absence of 100 μM each of these inhibitors for 3 h at 37°C then treated with or without 0.1, 0.5, and 1 μM Paclitaxel for 48 h and processed for annexin V binding assay.

Cell Assay

1×104 cells are plated in 100 μL of the growth medium in the presence or absence of increasing concentrations (0.1-1 μM) of taxol in 96-well plates and cultured at 37°C in 5% CO2 for 12-48 h. The cells are then incubated with 25 μL of MTT (5 mg/mL) at 37°C for 4 h. After dissolving the crystals with 0.04 N HCl in isopropanol, the plates are read in a microplate reader at 570 nm. The concentration of drug that inhibits cell survival by 50% (IC50) is determined from cell survival plots.
