Sažetak
The thermally responsive elastin-like polypeptide (ELP) has great potential as a macromolecular drug delivery vehicle due to its ability to be actively targeted to solid tumors by application of focused hyperthermia. Since, the toxicity properties of a new therapeutic delivery vehicle are crucial to its utility as an effective delivery vehicle, we evaluated the cytotoxicity of a thermally responsive Tat-ELP1 in various cell lines in response to hyperthermia. We report that Tat-ELP1 was not cytotoxic at 37 degrees C in SK-MEL-2, SKOV-3 and WI-38 cells, and only mildly toxic in the MCF-7 breast carcinoma cell line. Application of hyperthermia (42 degrees C) in combination with Tat-ELP1 resulted in cytotoxicity in all cell lines tested, and this toxicity was most prominent in the MCF-7 cell line, which was chosen to study the mechanism behind this increased toxicity. We found that Tat-ELP1 combined with hyperthermia caused membrane leakage and apoptosis, resulting in cell death, but no hemolytic effect was observed on murine erythrocytes
