We have evaluated the effect of NAD/poly(ADP-ribose) polymerase (PARP) metabolism deficiency on Topotecan induced apoptosis in HeLa cervical cancer cells. Cells grown in the absence or presence of NAD were treated during 24-48 hs with increasing doses of topotecan (0.1-1 μM). Our studies suggest that NAD/PARP synthesis may be involved in TPT-induced apoptotic pathway and p53 regulation (Supported by NIH- NCI-K1CA77065).
