|Abstract:||Na+/H+ exchanger-1 (NHE-1) overexpression is associated with carcinogenesis and is an attractive target for intervention. We report that the chemopreventive agent resveratrol (RSV) downregulates NHE-1 in a caspase-dependent manner without inducing cell death. Resveratrol triggered early activation of caspase 3 and late activation of caspase 6, which were not inter-dependent. Whereas, caspase 3 activation appeared to be a direct effect of resveratrol, caspase 6 activation was mediated via intracellular hydrogen peroxide production and iron. Moreover, downregulation of NHE-1 expression was a function of resveratrol-induced repression of NHE-1 gene promoter activity. RNAi-mediated silencing of caspase 3 or 6 blocked the effect of resveratrol on NHE-1 expression, however the effect on NHE-1 promoter was observed at different phases of promoter repression with caspase 3 controlling the early phase (4-12 h) and caspase 6 regulating the late phase (12-24 h). Scavenging hydrogen peroxide or iron only reversed the late phase of resveratrol-induced NHE-1 promoter repression. Finally, an AP2 binding region within NHE-1 gene promoter was identified as the target of resveratrol. Collectively, these data could explain the anti-cancer activity of resveratrol in the light of the association of increased NHE-1 expression with carcinogenesis. © 2008 Elsevier Ltd.
