The interaction between actin and cisplatin or transplatin hes been studied by using the 1H-NMR spectra and measuring the critical concentration of actin polymerization.These studies show that both cisplatin and transplatin induce a depolymerization of F-actin,and that the effect of transplatin is more obvious than that of cisplatin at the same concentration.It is found that cisplatin promotes a polymerization of G-actin at low concentration and inhibits it at high concentration.while transplatin inhibits the polymerization at any concentration.The binding sites of cisplatin/transplatin to G-actin are discussen.It is probable that cisplatin binds with Cys-10 and Cys-285,while tracsplatin does not bind with Cys-10.

Key words: Actin, Cisplatin, Transplatin, 1H-NMR
