Tumor necrosis factor (TNF)-related apoptosis-inducing ligand (TRAIL) is a member of the TNF family and potent inducer of apoptosis. TRAIL has been shown to effectively limit tumor growth in vivo without detectable cytotoxic side effects. Interferon (IFN)-${gamma}$ often modulates the anti-cancer activities of TNF family members including TRAIL. We previously reported that IFN-${gamma}$ enhanced TRAIL-induced Apoptosis in HeLa cells without the unknown mechanism. In this study, we investigated whether IRF-1 involves in IFN-${gamma}$-enhanced TRAIL-induced apoptosis. We exposed HeLa cells to IFN-${gamma}$ for 12 hours and then treated with recombinant TRAIL protein. No apoptosis was induced in cells pretreated with IFN-${gamma}$, and TRAIL only induced 30% apoptosis after 3 hours treatment. In HeLa cells pretreated with IFN-${gamma}$, TRAIL induced cell death to more than 75% at 3 hours, showed that IFN-${gamma}$-pretreatment enhanced HeLa cell death to TRAIL-induced apoptosis. To investigate the functional role of IRF-1 in IFN-${gamma}$-enhanced TRAIL-induced apoptosis, IRF-1 was overexpressed by using an adenoviral vector AdIRF-1. IRF-1 overexpression increased apoptotic cell death and significantly enhanced apoptotic cell death induced by TRAIL when infected cells were treated with TRAIL. Our findings show that IFN-${gamma}$ enhances TRAIL-induced apoptosis by IRF-1 in HeLa cells.
