    9-[2-(phosphonomethoxy)ethyl] guanine (PMEG) is a guanine acyclic nucleotide analog whose prodrugs are being investigated for chemotherapy of lymphomas. The objective of this study was to determine the requirements for caspase and CD95/Fas activation in PMEG-induced apoptosis and the influence of PMEG on cell cycle regulatory proteins in CCRF-CEM cells. As for cell cycle regulation, cyclin E1 was found to be up-regulated following PMEG treatment. Although an increase of caspase 3, 8 and 9 proteolytic activity was observed, neither pretreatment of the cells with cell-permeable caspase inhibitors nor blocking the death receptor with anti-Fas antibody did prevent apoptosis induced by PMEG. It was concluded that PMEG-induced apoptosis is caspase- and CD95/Fas-independent.
