Polycomb repressive complex 2 (PRC2), an epigenetic master regulator, contributes to progression and development of biliary tract cancer (BTC). The present study investigated the effects of the PRC2 inhibitor 3-deazaneplanocin A (DZNep) on BTC cell lines. In vitro effects of DZNep treatment were analyzed for cell viability, gene expression and functional characteristics of cancer stem cell (CSC). DZNep treatment caused a cell line- and dose-dependent decrease in viability. In the EGI-1 cell line, a direct cytotoxic effect was accompanied by mRNA down-regulation of the PRC2 core components, cyclins as well as of CSC-related genes. Furthermore, DZNep affected putative CSCs by reduction of sphere formation and aldehyde dehydrogenase-1-positive cells. The stem cell characteristics of these subpopulations were verified by real-time polymerase chain reaction analysis. Taken together, our results show that DZNep might be a promising pharmacological agent for future therapies regarding BTC. Copyright© 2015 International Institute of Anticancer Research (Dr. John G.
