Amsacrine hydrochloride (Amsidine, m-AMSA) is an inhibitor of topoisomerase 2 .
Amsacrine hydrochloride is a chemotherapy drug of antineoplastic, used to treat some types of lymphoma and acute leukaemia. In addition, Amsacrine hydrochloride has shown the sensitivities to the cancer cell lines with the IC50 values of 190.2±27.4ng/ml, 46.1±3.9ng/ml,22.6±3.1ng/ml, 11.8±2.0ng/ml, 5.0±0.4ng/ml, and 11.7±1.5ng/ml for three bladder cancer cell lines (HT1376,RT112, RT4) and three testis cancer cell lines(833K, Susa, GH), respectively. And it has been found that the testis tumor cell lines are more sensitive to inhibiting by Amsacrine hydrochloride than the bladder cell lines .
