Abstract

The treatment of renal cell carcinoma (RCC) with chemotherapy remains a challenge; therefore, improving the knowledge of the molecular mechanisms underlying RCC chemoresistance and developing novel therapeutic strategies is important. Dedicator of cytokinesis 1 (DOCK1), the first member of the DOCK family to be discovered, displays various roles during tumorigenesis; however, its role during RCC progression is not completely understood. Therefore, the present study aimed to clarify the function of DOCK1 and 1‑[2‑(3'‑(trifluoromethyl)‑(1,1'‑biphenyl)‑4‑yl)‑2‑oxoethyl]‑5‑pyrrolidinylsulfonyl‑2 (1H)‑pyridone (TBOPP), a DOCK1‑sensitive inhibitor, during RCC development and chemoresistance. The results of CCK‑8 and EdU assay indicated that TBOPP decreased RCC cell viability and proliferation compared with the control group, and sensitized RCC cells to cisplatin. Moreover, RCC cells with high DOCK1 expression levels displayed increased resistance to cisplatin, whereas DOCK1 knockdown enhanced the lethal effects of cisplatin on RCC cells. Furthermore, the results determined by western blotting, CCK‑8 and cell apoptosis assay indicated that TBOPP effectively reduced DOCK1 expression levels compared with the control group, and the TBOPP‑mediated cisplatin sensitizing effect was mediated by DOCK1 inhibition. The present study suggests that DOCK1 plays a vital role in RCC cell chemoresistance to cisplatin; therefore, TBOPP may serve as a novel therapeutic agent for RCC chemoresistance.
