Our former report indicates that calcyclin-binding protein or Siah-1-interacting protein (CacyBP/SIP) is over-expressed in the SGC7901/ADR cell line. However, the potential role of CacyBP/SIP in the development of multidrug resistance (MDR) of pancreatic cancer is still uncertain. In this paper, we investigated the role of CacyBP/SIP in MDR of pancreatic cancer cells and its possible underlying mechanisms, and found that CacyBP/SIP was over-expressed in the Gemcitabine induced MDR pancreatic cancer cell PC-3/Gem compared with its parental cell PC-3. Up-regulation of CacyBP/SIP expression could enhance resistance of chemotherapy drugs on PC-3 cells and inhibit Adriamycin-induced apoptosis accompanied by decreased accumulation of intracellular Adriamycin. Furthermore, CacyBP/SIP could significantly up-regulate the expression of P-gp, Bcl-2, and the transcription of the MDR1 gene. In addition, the decrease of CacyBP/SIP expression using RNA interference or P-gp inhibitor could partially reverse CacyBP/SIP-mediated MDR. In brief, our study demonstrated that CacyBP/SIP could enhance the MDR phenotype of pancreatic cancer cells by increasing the expression of P-gp and Bcl-2, thus inhibiting apoptosis of pancreatic cancer cell.
