Cisplatin | Anticancer agent

Induces intra- and interstrand DNA adducts which poison topoisomerase I.1 Synergizes with topoisomerase I inhibitors such as topotecan.1 Induces apoptosis by sequential activation of caspase-8, -3 and -6 in osteosarcoma cells.2 Inhibits expression of X-linked inhibitor of apoptosis protein (XIAP) in human LNCaP cells.3 Numerous mechanisms inhibit propagation of cisplatin-induced DNA damage to signal apoptosis resulting in resistance.4 Clinically useful anticancer agent.
