The induction of chromosome damage in Chinese hamster (line CHO) cells by 4'-[(9-acridinyl)-amino]methanesulphon-m-anisidide-HCl (MAC) (NSC-141549) was studied in cell populations growing exponentially and at various stages of the cell cycle following release from isoleucine-deficient G1-arrest. Autoradiographic analysis demonstrated that cells in S-phase at time of drug addition (2 microgram MAC/ml for 2 hr) were delayed 8 hours before entering mitosis.
Multicellular spheroids were used to compare the two chemotherapeutic agents adriamycin (ADM) and 4'[(9-acridinyl)-amino] methanesulphon-m-anisidide (mAMSA). Chinese hamster cells, V79 379A, a human small cell lung carcinoma, designated ME/MAR, and a human melanoma xenograft, HX117, were grown as spheroids (200 or 400 µm in diameter) and treated with either drug for 1 h, at 37°C, in air. Cytotoxicity was assayed using both cell survival and growth delay.
