- Cytosolic 2-cys peroxiredoxin (2-cysPrx) exhibiting thioredoxin-dependent hydroperoxide reductase activity has been demonstrated to be involved in a number of signaling processes, such as receptor tyrosine kinase and MAP kinase activation. However, its role in the cell death pathway has yet to be elucidated. Here we show that cytosolic 2-cysPrx suppresses the TNF-α-induced apoptosis of human cervical cancer cells in a caspase-8-dependent manner. The HeLa cervical cancer cells expressing a dominant negative mutant (DN) of a cytosolic 2-cysPrx manifested remarkable increase in intracellular reactive oxygen species level, which was counteracted by catalase administration, and apoptotic cell death induced by combined treatment of TNF-α and cycloheximide compared to the control (CT) cells. Similarly, the DN cells were also susceptible to apoptosis induced by the TNF-related apoptosis-inducing ligand. The apoptosis enhanced by DN expression was shown to be dependent on a typical FADD/caspase pathway. The DN cells undergoing apoptosis showed enhanced caspase-8 and -3 activations, as compared to the CT cells. In contrast, there was no difference observed in the sustained JNK activation between CT and DN cells. Thus, this study illustrates that intracellular reactive oxygen species regulated by cytosolic 2-cysPrx is involved in the TNF-α-induced apoptotic cell death via controlling caspase activation. © 2009 Elsevier Inc.
