The tricyclic compound 2,5-bis(5-hydroxymethyl-2-thienyl)furan (NSC 652287) has shown a highly selective pattern of differential cytotoxic activity in the tumor cell lines comprising the National Cancer Institute (NCI) Anticancer Drug Screen. The mechanism underlying the selective cytotoxicity is unknown. We hypothesized that differential sensitivity to the compound observed in several renal tumor cell lines could be the result of selective accumulation or differential metabolism of this agent. We demonstrated here that the capacity of certain renal cell lines to accumulate and retain the compound, determined by accumulation of [14C]NSC 652287-derived radioactivity and by flow cytometric determination of unlabeled compound, paralleled the sensitivity of the renal cell lines to growth inhibition by NSC 652287: A-498 > TK-10 >> ACHN approximately/= to UO-31. The ability of the cell lines to metabolize [14C]NSC 652287 to a reactive species capable of binding covalently to cellular macromolecules also directly correlated with sensitivity to the compound. Different patterns of metabolites were generated by relatively more drug-sensitive cell lines in comparison with drug-resistant cell lines. The metabolizing capacity for NSC 652287 was localized primarily to the cytosolic (S100) fraction. The rate of metabolism in the cytosolic fraction from the most sensitive renal cell line, A-498, was faster than that observed in the cytosolic fractions from the other, less sensitive cell lines. The data support the hypothesis that both selective cellular accumulation and the capacity to metabolize NSC 652287 to a reactive species by certain renal carcinoma cell types are the basis for the differential cytotoxicity of this compound class.
