Biochemical Physiological Actions Vincristine is a plant alkaloid that inhibits microtubule assembly by binding tubulin and inducing coiled spiral aggregate formation. It arrests cell cycle in G2/M-phase by blocking mitotic spindle formation. Vincristine triggers Raf-1 activation, phosphorylation of bcl-2-family proteins, induction of p53 expression, and apoptosis in several tumor cell lines. It inhibits VEGF production in leukemia cell lines. It is a substrate for Pgp and CYP3A4. MRP1 transports vincristine in an ATP- and GSH-dependent manner. Vincristine has some immunosuppressant effect. Vincristine may also interfere with amino acid, cyclic AMP, and glutathione metabolism, calmodulin-dependent Ca2+-transport, cellular respiration, and nucleic acid and lipid biosynthesis.
