Title Temozolomide Sensitizes ARID1A-Mutated Cancers to PARP Inhibitors.
Abstract Text ARID1A is a subunit of SWI/SNF chromatin remodeling complexes and is mutated in many types of human cancers, especially those derived from endometrial epithelium, including ovarian and uterine clear cell carcinoma (CCC) and endometrioid carcinoma (EMCA). Loss-of-function mutations in ARID1A alter epigenetic regulation of transcription, cell-cycle checkpoint control, and DNA damage repair. We report here that mammalian cells with ARID1A deficiency harbor accumulated DNA base lesions and increased abasic (AP) sites, products of glycosylase in the first step of base excision repair (BER). ARID1A mutations also delayed recruitment kinetics of BER long-patch repair effectors. Although ARID1A-deficient tumors were not sensitive to monotherapy with DNA-methylating temozolomide (TMZ), the combination of TMZ with PARP inhibitors (PARPi) potently elicited double-strand DNA breaks, replication stress, and replication fork instability in ARID1A-deficient cells. The TMZ and PARPi combination also significantly delayed in vivo growth of ovarian tumor xenografts carrying ARID1A mutations and induced apoptosis and replication stress in xenograft tumors. Together, these findings identified a synthetic lethal strategy to enhance the response of ARID1A-mutated cancers to PARP inhibition, which warrants further experimental exploration and clinical trial validation.The combination of temozolomide and PARP inhibitor exploits the specific DNA damage repair status of ARID1A-inactivated ovarian cancers to suppress tumor growth.


  • Case insensitive filtering will display rows if any text in any cell matches the filter term
  • Use simple literal full or partial string matches
  • Separate multiple filter terms with a space. Any order may be used (i. e. a b c and c b a are equivalent )
  • Filtering will only apply to rows that are already loaded on the page. Filtering has no impact on query parameters.
  • Use quotes to match on a longer phrase with spaces (i.e. "mtor c1483f")


  • Generally, the default sort order for tables is set to be first column ascending; however, specific tables may set a different default sort order.
  • Click on any column header arrows to sort by that column
  • Hold down the Shift key and click multiple columns to sort by more than one column. Be sure to set ascending or descending order for a given column before moving on to the next column.
