Dual metabolic reprogramming by ONC201/TIC10 and 2-Deoxyglucose induces energy depletion and synergistic anti-cancer activity in glioblastoma.

ABSTRACT: BACKGROUND:Dysregulation of the metabolome is a hallmark of primary brain malignancies. In this work we examined whether metabolic reprogramming through a multi-targeting approach causes enhanced anti-cancer activity in glioblastoma. METHODS:Preclinical testing of a combined treatment with ONC201/TIC10 and 2-Deoxyglucose was performed in established and primary-cultured glioblastoma cells. Extracellular flux analysis was used to determine real-time effects on OXPHOS and glycolysis. Respiratory chain complexes were analysed by western blotting. Biological effects on tumour formation were tested on the chorioallantoic membrane (CAM). RESULTS:ONC201/TIC10 impairs mitochondrial respiration accompanied by an increase of glycolysis. When combined with 2-Deoxyglucose, ONC201/TIC10 induces a state of energy depletion as outlined by a significant decrease in ATP levels and a hypo-phosphorylative state. As a result, synergistic anti-proliferative and anti-migratory effects were observed among a broad panel of different glioblastoma cells. In addition, this combinatorial approach significantly impaired tumour formation on the CAM. CONCLUSION:Treatment with ONC201/TIC10 and 2-Deoxyglucose results in a dual metabolic reprogramming of glioblastoma cells resulting in a synergistic anti-neoplastic activity. Given, that both agents penetrate the blood-brain barrier and have been used in clinical trials with a good safety profile warrants further clinical evaluation of this therapeutic strategy.
