Caffeine-induced apoptosis reveals a persistent lesion after treatment with bromodeoxyuridine and ultraviolet-B light.

Ultraviolet-B (UVB) light treatment of synchronized V79 Chinese hamster cells after pulse-labeling with bromodeoxyuridine (BrdUrd) reveals a marked age response for cell killing. Incubation after treatment in growth medium containing caffeine increases cell killing during the resistant portions of the cell cycle, resulting in a much less marked age response to UVB irradiation. Examination of the split-dose survival curves for BrdUrd and UVB light in the presence or absence of caffeine indicates that sensitization by caffeine is completely independent of the sparing effect of dose fractionation. Further, sensitization by caffeine is nearly complete after the first mitosis after the UVB exposure. With delayed addition of caffeine, however, nearly full sensitization can be elicited as late as two cell cycles after the treatment with BrdUrd and UVB light. Also, synchronized cells exposed to caffeine after treatment with BrdUrd and UVB in the S phase cease to incorporate radiolabeled thymidine and undergo apoptosis after the second mitosis. Thus exposure to caffeine reveals a persistent sensitivity lasting for at least two cell cycles, after the injury induced by treatment with BrdUrd and UVB.[1]
