3 Original Observation in Osteosarcoma Kobayashi et. al. Mol Cancer Ther 2010;9:
4 Argininosuccinate Synthetase 1 The protein encoded by this gene catalyzes the penultimate step of the arginine biosynthetic pathway.There are approximately 10 to 14 copies of this gene, the only functional copy is on chromosome 9.Mutations in ASS1 cause citrullinemia.
7 ASS1 Expression in Cell Lines 13/1586.7%-Expression of ASS1 in sarcoma cell lines. 3/5 osteosarcoma cell lines lack strong expression of ASS1, with the MG63 cell line expressing the highest amount. All 3 LMS cell lines lack high ASS1 expression, as do Ewing’s,Chondrosarcoma, Sunovial and Avelolar Soft Parts Sarcoma cell lines. All expression is normalized to MG63 and then to Actin.

10 Cell Cycle Inhibition is caused by treatment of ASS1 low cells with ADI-PEG20
11 AutophagyAutophagy is a catabolic process involving the degradation of a cell's own components through the lysosomal machinery.It is a tightly regulated process that plays a normal part in cell growth, development, and homeostasis, helping to maintain a balance between the synthesis, degradation, and subsequent recycling of cellular products.It is a major mechanism by which a starving cell reallocates nutrients from unnecessary processes to more-essential processes.
12 Arginine Deprivation Induces Autophagy Autophagy. The arginine depletion using ADI-PEG20 induces autophagy by day 2 as seen by in increased LC3 cleavage and p62 alterations in ASS1 low cell lines.
13 Duel Induction and Inhibition of Autophagy leads to cell Death. A BInduction of autophagy with ADI-PEG20. A. Cell counts over three days in cells treated with control, ADI-PEG20, chloroquine of the combination. B. Annexin V FACS on day 3 of cells treated with control, ADI-PEG20, chloroquine of the combination.
14 Colony Formation Assays p= p=0.001Colony formation: Colony formation assays for the ASS1 Low SKLMS1 cell line (Left) and the ASS1 High (Right) cell lines. Cells are treated with drug for 7 days and then released so that viable cells can grow out. The combination of ADI-PEG20 and Chloroquine is superior in ASS1 low cells.
15 MNNG/HOS ASS1 Low Xenografts The osteosarcoma cell line MNNG/HOS was xenografted into the back fat pad of nude mice. Mice we treated daily with chloroquine and biweekly with ADI-PEG20. Tumors were measured starting on day 6. Mice were treated with PBS (Green) ADI-PEG20 (red), Chloroquine (Blue) or the combination of ADI-PEG20 and Chloroquine (Purple). The combination demonstrated statistical significance.

18 Combination Treatment and Necroptosis The cell death induced by the combination of ADI-PEG20 and Chloroquine is best inhibited by necrostatin implicating necroptosis as the mechanism of cell death.
