Bafilomycin A1, a potent selective inhibitor of vacuolar H+-ATPase, inhibited the growth of a variety of cultured cells dose-dependently, including golden hamster embryo and NIH-3T3 fibroblasts, whether or not they were transformed, and PC12 and HeLa cells. The concentration of bafilomycin A1 for 50% inhibition of cell growth ranged from 10 to 50 n M. The dose response was nearly parallel with that of the bafilomycin A1-induced lysosomal pH increase. The degree of pH increase for growth inhibition produced by bafilomycin A1 was similar to that produced by NH4Cl in which little difference was recognized in effect among cell types.
