ABSTRACT Induction of the B7 family molecules by 12-O-tetradecanoyl phorbol 13-acetate (TPA) has been reported, however, the mechanism by which TPA up-regulates these molecules remains poorly understood. In this study, the expression of B7-DC, -H1, -H2, and -H3 in response to TPA was markedly induced in K562 cells. TPA also induced activation of ERK, p38 mitogen-activated protein kinase (MAPK), JNK, phosphatidylinositol-3-kinase (PI-3K), or nuclear factor (NF)-kappaB. Pre-treatments with protein kinase C (PKC) inhibitors significantly inhibited TPA-induced expression of B7-DC, -H1, -H2, and -H3 mRNA as well as TPA-induced phosphorylation of ERK, p38 MAPK, JNK, and PI-3K. TPA-induced expression of B7-DC, -H1, -H2, and -H3 mRNA was abrogated by pre-treatments with inhibitors of ERK and p38 MAPK. However, inhibition of PI-3K and JNK only caused decrease of TPA-induced B7-DC mRNA and B7-H3 mRNA, respectively. TPA-induced degradation of IkappaB-alpha was markedly abrogated by treatments with PKC inhibitors, but not by treatments with inhibitors of ERK, p38 MAPK, JNK, or PI-3K. NF-kappaB inhibitors significantly attenuated the expression of B7-DC, -H1, -H2, and -H3 mRNA in response to TPA. These results suggest that TPA induces the expression of B7-DC, -H1, -H2, and -H3 mRNA in K562 cells via activation of PKC, ERK, p38 MAPK, and NF-kappaB. Distinctly, the expression of B7-DC mRNA and -H3 mRNA in response to TPA is also PI-3K- and JNK-dependent, respectively.

    ABSTRACT: Matrix metalloproteinase-9 (MMP-9) plays a crucial role in tumor metastasis. Previous studies showed that polyunsaturated fatty acids exhibit an anti-cancer effect in various human carcinoma cells, but the effect of docosahexaenoic acid (DHA) and linoleic acid (LA) on metastasis of breast cancer cells is not fully clarified. We studied the anti-metastasis potential of DHA and LA in 12-O-tetradecanoylphorbol-13-acetate (TPA)-induced MCF-7 cells. We found that TPA (100 ng/ml) induced MMP-9 enzyme activity both dose- and time-dependently, and 200 μM DHA and LA significantly inhibited MMP-9 mRNA and protein expression, enzyme activity, cell migration, and invasion. Treatment with PD98059 (10 μM), wortmannin (10 μM), and GF109203X (0.5 μM) decreased TPA-induced MMP-9 protein expression and enzyme activity. TPA-induced activation of ERK1, Akt, and PKCδ was attenuated by DHA, whereas LA attenuated only ERK1 activation. GF109203X also suppressed ERK1 activation. EMSA showed that DHA, LA, PD98059, and wortmannin decreased TPA-induced NF-κB and AP-1 DNA-binding activity. Furthermore, DHA rather than LA dose-dependently increased HO-1 expression. HO-1 siRNA alleviated the inhibition by DHA of TPA-induced MMP-9 protein expression and enzyme activity in MCF-7 cells, and HO-1 knockdown reversed the DHA inhibition of cell migration. These results suggest that DHA and LA have both similar and divergent signaling pathways in the suppression of TPA-induced MCF-7 metastasis.

    ABSTRACT: The purpose of this study is to investigate the anti-metastatic effect of alpha-mangostin on phorbol 12-myristate 13-acetate (PMA)-induced matrix metalloproteinase-2 (MMP-2) and matrix metalloproteinase-9 (MMP-9) expressions in A549 human lung adenocarcinoma cells. Firstly, alpha-mangostin could inhibit PMA-induced abilities of the adhesion, invasion, and migration. Data also showed alpha-mangostin could inhibit the activation of alphavbeta3 integrin, focal adhesion kinase (FAK), and extracellular signal-regulated kinase1/2 (ERK1/2) involved in the downregulation the enzyme activities, protein and messenger RNA levels of MMP-2 and MMP-9 induced by PMA. Next, alpha-mangostin also strongly inhibited PMA-induced degradation of inhibitor of kappaBalpha (IkappaBalpha) and the nuclear levels of nuclear factor kappa B (NF-kappaB). Also, a dose-dependent inhibition on the binding abilities of NF-kappaB by alpha-mangostin treatment was further observed. Furthermore, reduction of FAK or ERK1/2 phosphorylation by FAK small interfering RNA (FAK siRNA) potentiated the effect of alpha-mangostin. Finally, the transient transfection of ERK siRNA significantly down-regulated the expressions of MMP-2 and MMP-9 concomitantly with a marked inhibition on cell invasion and migration. Presented results indicated alpha-mangostin is a novel, effect, anti-metastatic agent that functions by downregulating MMP-2 and MMP-9 gene expressions.

    ABSTRACT: α-Tomatine, isolated from Lycopersicon esculentum Linn., is a naturally occurring glycoalkaloids in immature green tomatoes. Some reports demonstrated that α-tomatine had various anti-carcinogenic properties. First, the result demonstrated α-tomatine could inhibit TPA-induced the abilities of the adhesion, morphology/actin cytoskeleton arrangement, invasion, and migration by cell-matrix adhesion assay, immunofluorescence stain assay, Boyden chamber invasion assay, and wound-healing assay. Data also showed α-tomatine could inhibit the activation of extracellular signal-regulated kinase 1 and 2 (ERK1/2) and protein kinase C-α (PKCα) involved in the downregulation of the enzyme activities and messenger RNA levels of matrix metalloproteinase-2/9 (MMP-2/MMP-9) induced by TPA. Next, α-tomatine also strongly inhibited TPA-induced the activation of nuclear factor kappa B (NF-κB) and phospho-inhibitor of kappa Bα (phospho-IκBα). In addition, TPA-induced translocation of PKC-α from cytosol to membranes, and suppression of TPA elicited the expression of PKC-α by adding the PKC-α inhibitors, GF-109203X and Gö-6983. The treatment of specific inhibitor for ERK (U0126) to MCF-7 cells could inhibit TPA-induced MMP-2/MMP-9 and phospho-ERK along with an inhibition on cell invasion and migration. Application of α-tomatine to prevent the invasion/migration of MCF-7 cells through blocking PKCα/ERK/NF-κB activation is first demonstrated herein.
