Abstract

Oridonin is a diterpenoid compound isolated from the medicinal herb Rabdosia rubescens, and has shown marked antitumor effects against different types of cancer. However, the definitive systematic molecular mechanism underlying the antitumor activity of oridonin in multiple myeloma remains to be elucidated. In the present study, cell viability and cytotoxicity were examined to determine the appropriate concentration for proteomic investigation. In addition, cell apoptosis was evaluated using flow cytometry and transmission electron microscopy. A proteomic investigation using a two‑dimensional electrophoresis system and mass spectrometry was performed to identify and characterize the global proteome of the apoptosis induced by oridonin. Of the proteins identified, seven were involved in the anticancer effects of oridonin. Regulation of the expression and function of target proteins, stathmin, dihydrofolate reductase and pyruvate dehydrogenase E1β, may be potential, therapeutic strategies to effectively treat multiple myeloma. These findings provide novel information on the molecular mechanisms underlying the anticancer properties of oridonin in multiple myeloma.
