N-(3-oxododecanoyl)-L-homoserine-lactone (ODHL), a quorum sensing molecule, affects intracellular Zn2+ concentration ([Zn2+]i) and cellular levels of nonprotein thiols ([NPT]i) of rat thymic lymphocytes, both of which are assumed to affect cell vulnerability to oxidative stress. Therefore, it is interesting to examine the effects of ODHL on the cells under oxidative stress. ODHL augmented the cytotoxicity of H2O2, but not calcium ionophore A23187. ODHL potentiated the H2O2-induced elevation of [Zn2+]i, wherein, it greatly attenuated the H2O2-induced increase in intracellular Ca2+ concentration. ODHL did not affect [NPT]i in the presence of H2O2. Therefore, we conclude that the elevation of [Zn2+]i is involved in the ODHL-induced potentiation of H2O2 cytotoxicity. Our findings suggest that ODHL modifies cell vulnerability to oxidative stress in host cells.
