Paper Abstract

Interaction of DNA and phospholipids from Carcinoma Guerina resistant and sensitive cells of Wistar line rats with anti-cancer drugs - cis-platin and doxorubicin (DOX) have been studied in vivo and in vitro experiments. Surface enhanced infrared absorption (SEIRA) spectroscopy was applied for registration of conformational changes in DNA and lipids induced by anti-cancer drugs. It has been shown in vivo experiment that doxorubicin influences less structural disordering of the membrane than cis-platin. Cis-platin creates irreversible complex with memebrane phospholipids, strongly interacting with phosophates and carbohydrate chains. Doxorubicin influences the ordering of carbohydrate chains and does not strongly influence phosphate heads. This change seems to be partially reversible. In contrast, in vivo experiment the doxorubicin strongly influences the DNA structure, leading to DNA stabilization and formation of new H-bonds in DNA-doxorubicin complex. We have not registered the interaction of DNA with cis-platin in vivo experiment. Experiment in vitro for cis-platin incubation with phospholipids from cancer cells during 0.5 hour at 37°C has not shown those drastic structural peculiarities that it was observed in vivo experiments.
