    Osteosarcoma is the most common primary orthopedic malignant bone tumor in adolescents. However, the traditional neoadjuvant chemotherapy regimen has reached the bottleneck. TPZ is a hypoxic prodrug that has a powerful anti-tumor effect in the hypoxic microenvironment of tumors. And ferroptosis is a newly discovered cell death in 2012, and ferroptosis inducers have been used in anti-tumor therapy research in recent decades. Though, the role of TPZ and ferroptosis in osteosarcoma remains unclear. The aim of this study was to investigate the role of TPZ in osteosarcoma and the specific mechanism. MTT assay showed the extraordinary inhibition of TPZ on three osteosarcoma cells under hypoxia. And fluorescence of Fe2+ staining was enhanced by TPZ. Western blotting showed decreased expression of SLC7A11 and GPX4. Lipid peroxidation was confirmed by MDA assay and C11 BODIPY 581/591 staining. SLC7A11 overexpression could restored the proliferation and migration abilities inhibited by TPZ. Thus, we for the first time demonstrated that TPZ could inhibit the proliferation and migration of osteosarcoma cells, and induce ferroptosis in part through inhibiting SLC7A11.
