Summary: Histone deacetylase (HDAC) inhibitors have been useful chemotherapy agents in the treatment of neuroblastomas, the most frequent solid tumor of childhood. Studies have shown that the expression of the neurotrophin receptor, p75NTR, on human neuroblastoma cells are enhanced after exposure to some HDAC inhibitors. The authors used mu p75-SAP along with two HDAC inhibitors, valproic acid and entinostat, to investigate if they could exploit the upregulation of p75NTR and see if these cells were more susceptible as a target for elimination. The administration of mu p75-SAP only induced cell death in tumors of mice that were pretreated with entinostat
Usage: Cells were treated for 24 hr with entinostat and then exposed to 30 nM of mu p75-SAP for 24 hr.
