The effects of depleting glytolytic ATP on EDKC mediated cellular phototoxicity has been investigated using squamous carcinoma cells (FaDu) in vitro. Cells were pretreated with a non-metabolizable glucose analog 2-deoxy-D-glucose (5 mM) for 13-15 hr that resulted in 40-45 % decrease of cellular ATP. Subsequent exposure of the cells to EDKC resulted in twice as much dye uptake compared to control cells and upon radiation induced 4-5 fold more killing. Pretreatment with 2-deoxy-D-glucose (2-DG) alone did not have any effect on cell survival. We conclude that if cellular glycolytic ATP is lowered prior to their exposure to EDKC and radiation, cells become more vulnerable to the dye mediated photosensitization.
