    ABSTRACT: We report for the first time that Guanine nucleotide-binding protein subunit beta-2-like 1(RACK1) formed a complex with Annexin A7. Hca-F and Hca-P are a pair of syngeneic mouse hepatocarcinoma cell lines established and maintained in our laboratory. Our previous study showed that both Annexin A7 and RACK1 were expressed higher in Hca-F (lymph node metastasis > 70%) than Hca-P (lymph node metastasis < 30%). Suppression of Annexin A7 expression in Hca-F cells induced decreased migration and invasion ability. In this study, knockdown of RACK1 by RNA interference (RNAi) had the same impact on metastasis potential of Hca-F cells as Annexin A7 down-regulation. Furthermore, by co-immunoprecipitation and double immunofluorescence confocal imaging, we found that RACK1 was in complex with Annexin A7 in control cells, but not in the RACK1-down-regulated cells, indicating the abolishment of RACK1-Annexin A7 interaction in Hca-F cells by RACK1 RNAi. Taken together, these results suggest that RACK1-Annexin A7 interaction may be one of the means by which RACK1 and Annexin A7 influence the metastasis potential of mouse hepatocarcinoma cells in vitro.

    ABSTRACT: We have previously demonstrated that Annexin A7 is involved in the lymphatic metastasis of hepatocarcinoma in vitro. The expression of Galectin-3 and Gelsolin, which were also relevant to tumor lymphatic metastasis, had shown the same tendency concordantly with the expression of Annexin A7 alteration by qRT-PCR and Western blot analysis. Here, we gain an insight into the role that Annexin A7 is playing in Hca-P, PAnxa7-upregulated and PAnxa7-downregulated cells in vivo. Then, Hca-P, PAnxa7-upregulated and PAnxa7-downregulated cells were injected into a mouse footpad to establish primary tumors in mice. On the fourth week after HCC cells inoculation, the mice were sacrificed for inspection the expression of Annexin A7, Galectin-3 and Gelsolin in primary tumors and in serum. Our work indicates that Annexin A7 and Gelsolin are both valuable in tumors and in serum evaluating lymph node metastasis in mice with hepatocarcinoma; Galectin-3 in tumors is significant but no much contribution in serum.

    ABSTRACT: The existence of breast cancer stem-like cells (BCSCs) has profound implications for cancer prevention. Genistein, a predominant isoflavone found in soy products, has multiple robust anti-tumor effects in various cancers, especially in the breast and prostate cancer. In this study, we aimed to evaluate genistein inhibition of BCSCs and its potential mechanism by culturing MCF-7 breast cancer cells and implanting these cells into nude mice. Cell counting, colony formation and cell apoptosis analysis were used to evaluate the effect of genistein on breast cancer cells' growth, proliferation and apoptosis. We then used mammosphere formation assay and CD44CD24 staining to evaluate the effect of genistein on BCSCs in vitro. A nude mice xenograft model was employed to determine whether genistein could target BCSCs in vivo, as assessed by real-time polymerase chain reaction (PCR) and immunohistochemical staining. The potential mechanism was investigated utilizing real-time PCR, western blotting analysis and immunohistochemical staining. Genistein inhibited the MCF-7 breast cancer cells' growth and proliferation and promoted apoptosis. Both in vitro and in vivo genistein decreased breast cancer stem cells, and inhibited breast cancer stem-like cells through down-regulation of the Hedgehog-Gli1 Signaling Pathway. We demonstrated for the first time that genistein inhibits BCSCs by down-regulating Hedgehog-Gli1 signaling pathway. These findings provide support and rationale for investigating the clinical application of genistein in treating breast cancer, and specifically by targeting breast cancer stem cells.

    ABSTRACT: Hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC) is one of the leading causes of cancer death in China. This study investigated the effects of Annexin A7 (ANXA7) on the inhibition of HCC lymph node metastasis in a mouse model. The stable knockup and knockdown of Annexin A7-expressing HCC cells using Annexin A7 cDNA and shRNA vectors, respectively, were injected into a mouse footpad to establish primary and metastatic tumors in mice. On the 14th, 21st, and 28th days after HCC cells inoculation, the mice were sacrificed for inspection of primary and secondary tumors and immunohistochemistry of Annexin A7 expression. The lymph node metastasis rate of the FANXA7-control group was 77%, and the lymph node metastasis rate of the FANXA7-down group was 100% (p < 0.05). In contrast, the lymph node metastasis rate of the PANXA7-up group was 0% and that of the PANXA7-control group was 36% (p < 0.05). Furthermore, immunohistochemistry experiments revealed that the subcellular localization of Annexin A7 protein in both primary and lymph node-metastasized tumors was mainly in the cytosol. In addition, the expression of the 47 kDa and 51 kDa isoforms of Annexin A7 protein changed during tumor progression. This study indicated that Annexin A7 expression was able to inhibit HCC lymph node metastasis, whereas knockdown of Annexin A7 expression significantly induced HCC metastasis to local lymph nodes.

    ABSTRACT: One of the best prognostic predictors for patients with epithelial ovarian cancer is the Federation of Obstetrics and Gynecology (FIGO) stage at diagnosis. Advanced-stage ovarian serous carcinoma (OSC) generally have poor prognosis. The goal of this study is to develop and validate a miRNA expression profile that can differentiate the OSC at early and advanced stages and study its correlation with the prognosis of OSC. To identify a unique microRNA (miRNA) pattern associated with the progression of OSC at early and advanced stages, a miRNA microarray was performed using Chinese tumor bank specimens of patients with OSC stage I or III in a retrospective analysis. The expression of four dysregulated miRNAs was validated using quantitative real-time polymerase chain reaction (qRT-PCR) in an external cohort of 51 cases of OSC samples at stages I and III. Kaplan-Meier analysis was performed to analyze the correlation between the expression of some miRNAs and prognosis. Of the 768 miRNAs analyzed in the microarray, 26 miRNAs were significantly either up- or downregulated, with at least a 2-fold difference, in OSC stage I compared with stage III. The qRT-PCR results showed that miR-510, miR-509-5p, and miR-508-3p were significantly downregulated and that miR-483-5p was upregulated in stage III OSC compared with stage I, which was consistent with the microarray results. Kaplan-Meier analysis showed low miR-510 expression, low miR-509-5p expression, and advanced FIGO stage, and chemotherapy resistance were significantly associated with poorer overall survival (P < 0.05). Our results suggest that miRNAs may play a role in the progression of OSC, and miR-510 and miR-509-5p may be considered novel-candidate clinical biomarkers for predicting OSC outcome.

    ABSTRACT: To investigate the effect of enoyl coenzyme A hydratase-1 (Ech1) on the proliferation and invasion ability of mouse hepatocarcinoma Hca-P cells in vitro. Recombinant pcDNA3.1(+)-Ech1 gene and pcDNA3.1(+) were transfected into Hca-P cells by cationic liposomes introduction. Clone of PEch1 cells that stably expressing Ech1 and clone of control Pvector cells were screened by G418. The Ech1 expression was identified subsequently by reverse transcriptase-polymerase chain reaction (RT-PCR) and enzyme-linked immunosorbent assay (ELISA), respectively. The malignant behaviors of the cell lines were compared by proliferation, invasion and migration test. The cell line Hca-P cells stably expressing Ech1 gene was constructed. The relative expression of Ech1 mRNA in the PEch1 group was 3.21 ± 0.43 and in the Pvector group was 1.44 ± 0.03, with a significant difference between the two groups (P = 0.029). The results of ELISA revealed that the expression of Ech1 protein was 0.140 ± 0.005 in the PEch1 group, 0.088 ± 0.003 in the Pvector group, and 0.078 ± 0.006 in the Hca-P group, showing a significant difference between the PEch1 group and the Pvector and Hca-P groups (P < 0.05). Transwell migration test showed that the number of penetrated cells in the PEch1 group was 143.00 ± 7.25 cells, significantly higher than that of the Pvector group (95.73 ± 3.88 cells) and un-treated Hca-1 group (106.67 ± 3.54 cells, both P < 0.05). The Transwell invasion assay showed that the number of penetrated cells was 77.20 ± 5.46 cells in the PEch1 group, significantly higher than 46.34 ± 4.35 cells in the Pvector group and 49.80 ± 5.21 cells in the un-treated Hca-1 group (both P < 0.05). The results showed that overexpressed Ech1 in Hca-P cells may significantly increase the cell proliferation in a time-dependent manner. The up-regulation of Ech1 may increase to some extent the migration and invasion capacity of Hca-P cells. The efforts aiming at up-regulation of Ech1 expression may become a therapeutic target in the treatment of hepatocarcinoma.

    ABSTRACT: To investigate the influence of down-regulating Smoothened (SMO) gene expression through short hairpin RNA (shRNA) on the proliferation of breast cancer stem cells. Human SMO shRNA was designed, synthesized chemically, and transfected into MCF-7 cells to down-regulate SMO gene. By using G418, stable cells with down-regulated SMO were selected. In vitro proliferation of these cells was measured by CCK8 assay. The proportion of CD44(+)/CD24(-) cells was detected by flow cytometry and the mammospheres formation was determined by suspension sphere culture. The expression of SMO, GLI1 and Oct4 was detected by Western blot. In vivo, the volume of tumor was measured every 3 days and the expression of SMO, GLI1 and Oct4 detected by Western blot. In vitro, the cells were transfected with SMO-shRNA and selected by G418 after 21 days. SMO-shRNA effectively down-regulated the expression of SMO gene and protein, and inhibited the proliferation of MCF-7 and markedly reduced the proportion of CD44(+)/CD24(-) cells and mammospheres. In vivo, SMO-shRNA treatment of MCF-7 significantly inhibited the volume of tumor. The positive rate of SMO in negative control and SMO-shRNA group was 5/5 and 2/5, respectively. The expression of SMO, GLI1 and Oct4 in different groups were 0.72 ± 0.17 and 0.21 ± 0.09, 1.21 ± 0.21 and 0.47 ± 0.12, 0.83 ± 0.13 and 0.25 ± 0.07. SMO, GLI1 and Oct4 down-regulation significantly suppressed at protein levels (P < 0.05). The shRNA by chemical synthesis can effectively down-regulate SMO gene expression and inhibit the proliferation of breast cancer stem cells.

    ABSTRACT: We have previously demonstrated that Ech1 is involved in the lymphatic metastasis of tumors in vitro. Here, we gain an insight into the role that Ech1 is playing in Hca-F cell. The expression of Annexin A7, Gelsolin and Clic1 genes, which were also relevant to tumor lymphatic metastasis, had been inhibited due to downregulation Ech1 gene by Western blot analysis. And downregulated of Ech1 inhibits the metastasic capability of Hca-F cells to peripheral lymph nodes in vivo. Our work indicates although the involvement of Ech1 in tumor metastasis development and progression, but the subcellular location of Ech1 has not much contribution to that.

    ABSTRACT: Breast cancer is currently the most lethal gynecologic malignancy in many countries, and paclitaxel is a cornerstone in the treatment of this malignancy. Unfortunately, the efficacy of paclitaxel is limited due to the development of drug resistance. Evidence has suggested that cancer stem cells (CSCs) are involved in resistance to various forms of therapies, including chemotherapy. However, the interaction between paclitaxel resistance and CSCs and its underlying mechanisms have not been previously explored. In this study, we confirmed that paclitaxel enriched breast CSCs (CD44+/CD24-) in a dose-dependent manner in MCF-7 human breast cancer cell line. We then demonstrated that Notch1 was overexpressed in breast CSCs isolated from paclitaxel-treated MCF-7 cells compared to non-CSCs. The short hairpin RNA (shRNA) mediated knock-down of Notch1 inhibited MCF-7 cell proliferation and induced cell apoptosis. The anti-apoptosis protein NF-κB was decreased significantly when treated with shRNA-Notch1, and this effect was sharply improved by combination with paclitaxel. Paclitaxel decreased CD44+/CD24- cell population in MCF-7 cells and reduced the size and number of primary mammospheres after down-regulating the Notch1. Furthermore, shRNA-Notch1 inhibited the growth of tumor xenografts in nude mice noticeably. RT-PCR and Western blotting analysis showed that the expressions of ALDH1, NICD, Hes-1 and the drug transporter ABCG2 were decreased both in vitro and in vivo. These results suggest that Notch1 might play a critical role in the resistance to paclitaxel, and targeting Notch1 may have important clinical applications in cancer therapy.

    ABSTRACT: Cancer stem cells (CSCs), stem-like cells, or tumor-initiating cells (TICs) may initiate tumorigenesis and metastasis, but neither the basic cell biology of CSCs nor the mechanisms of CSC-mediated tumor growth and lymphoid node metastasis are understood. Evidence suggests that CSC phenotype is maintained, at least in part, by altered JNK signaling. In this study, factors influencing the growth and metastatic potential of CSCs were examined by comparing CD133 surface antigen expression, proliferation, clonogenicity, invasive capacity, tumorigenicity, and expression of JNK-associated signaling molecules between the highly metastatic mouse hepatocarcinoma ascites syngeneic cell line Hca-F and the low metastasis potential line Hca-P. The Hca-F line exhibited higher clonogenic, proliferative, and invasive capacities than Hca-P cells, and a greater proportion of Hca-F cells were CD133 positive. In both cell lines, the CD133+ subpopulation showed significantly enhanced tumorigenicity and metastatic potential. An in vivo tumorigenicity assay in nude mice indicated that Hca-F cells possessed significantly higher tumorigenicity than Hca-P cells as indicated by larger tumors after inoculation. Expression levels of E-cadherin (CDH1), annexin VII, and JNK1 proteins were inversely correlated with CD133 expression in both Hca-F and Hca-P cells. These results demonstrate that CD133+ subpopulations of both Hca-F and Hca-P lines show CSC-like properties. However, Hca-F cells showed greater tumorigenicity and invasiveness, consistent with greater lymphatic metastasis capacity. We propose that tumorigenesis and lymphatic metastasis are regulated by JNK/P53/annexin VII and JNK/ATF-2/CDH1/annexin VII signal transduction pathways.

    ABSTRACT: Hca-P and Hca-F is a pair of synogenetic mouse hepatocarcinoma ascites cell lines, possessing different capacity of lymphatic metastasis. Receptor of activated C-kinase 1 (Rack1), together with Jnk1 and gelsolin (Gsn) were previously identified as differentially expressed proteins for lymphatic metastatic potential between the two cell lines. As an intracellular scaffold protein, Rack1 could recruit such signaling molecules as integrins, Src, PKC which are involved in many important biological processes and play key roles in cancer progression. In our present studies, pCDNA3.1(+)-Rack1, a eukaryotic expression plasmid, was constructed and stably transfected into Hca-P cells with a low metastatic potential. CCK8 assay and transwell system were used to evaluate the effects of Rack1 on proliferation, migration and invasion of Hca-P cells in vitro. Then, LY294002, an inhibitor of PI3K, was added into the culture medium of pCDNA3.1(+)-Rack1-Hca-P cells and their biological behaviors observed further. Moreover, the expression of Jnk1, Rac1 and Gsn of pCDNA3.1(+)-Rack1-Hca-P cells were detected by western blot after pretreated with various doses of LY294002. As a result, the proliferation, migration and invasion of pCDNA3.1(+)-Rack1-Hca-P cells were significantly enhanced and could be inhibited by LY294002. In addition, the expression of Gsn, Rac1 and Jnk1 of pCDNA3.1(+)-Rack1-Hca-P cells also decreased after pretreated with LY294002. The expression of Gsn can be inhibited by NSC33766 (an inhibitor of Rac1). Taken together, Rack1/PI3K/Rac1 signaling pathway may play a crucial role in malignant biological behaviors of mouse hepatocarcinoma cells with lymphatic metastasis potential. It may be a potential target for therapy of cancer lymphatic metastasis.

    ABSTRACT: To examine the differential expression pattern of Ech1 protein in mouse Hca-F and Hca-P hepatocarcinoma cell lines with high and low rates of lymphatic metastasis, respectively, and to investigate the relationships between Ech1 expression and adhesion of Hca-F cells. Fluorescence two-dimensional difference in-gel electrophoresis (2D DIGE) and mass spectrometry were used to detect Ech1 expression. Ech1 gene silencing was achieved by stable transfection of Hca-F cells with a plasmid vector harboring short hairpin RNA (shRNA) targeting Ech1, pGPU6/GFP/Neo-shRNA-Ech1. Ech1 mRNA and protein expressions were detected by real-time quantitative polymerase chain reaction (qRT-PCR) and Western blotting analysis, respectively. Adhesive properties of cells were assessed by hematoxylin-eosin staining and fluorimetric detection of extracellular matrix (ECM) proteins. Endogenous Ech1 protein level was remarkably higher in the highly metastatic Hca-F cell line than in the Hca-P cell line (2.7-fold by 2D DIGE; 1.5-fold by Western blotting). shRNA-induced silencing of Ech1 significantly reduced the adhesion ability of Hca-F cells, as evidenced by decreased absorbance values of fibronectin and collagen I (Hca-F cells vs. pGPU6/GFP/Neo-shRNA-Ech1 cells: 1.42+/-0.26 vs. 1.01+/-0.27 and 1.14+/-0.07 vs. 0.90+/-0.09, respectively; P less than 0.05). Down-regulation of Ech1 can inhibit the adhesive capacity of metastatic Hca-F cells.

    ABSTRACT: After discovering new miRNAs, it is often difficult to determine their targets and effects on downstream protein expression. In situ hybridization (ISH) and immunohistochemistry (IHC) are two commonly used methods for clinical diagnosis and basic research. We used an optimized technique that simultaneously detects miRNAs, their binding targets and corresponding proteins on transferred serial formalin fixed paraffin embedded (FFPE) sections from patients. Combined with bioinformatics, this method was used to validate the reciprocal expression of specific miRNAs and targets that were detected by ISH, as well as the expression of downstream proteins that were detected by IHC. A complete analysis was performed using a limited number of transferred serial FFPE sections that had been stored for 1-4years at room temperature. Some sections had even been previously stained with H&E. We identified a miRNA that regulates epithelial ovarian cancer, along with its candidate target and related downstream protein. These findings were directly validated using sub-cellular components obtained from the same patient sample. In addition, the expression of Nephrin (a podocyte marker) and Stmn1 (a recently identified marker related to glomerular development) were confirmed in transferred FFPE sections of mouse kidney. This procedure may be adapted for clinical diagnosis and basic research, providing a qualitative and efficient method to dissect the detailed spatial expression patterns of miRNA pathways in FFPE tissue, especially in cases where only a small biopsy sample can be obtained.

    ABSTRACT: c-Jun N-terminal kinase (JNK) is located in focal adhesion plaque (FAP). JNK is necessary to growth, morphogenesis, and differentiation of cells; especially JNK1 has a close relation with tumors. In this study, we silenced JNK1 by using short hairpin RNA (shRNA) and examined the effect on migration and invasion of mouse hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC) cell line Hca-F in vitro. Three shRNA expression vectors (JNK1shRNA-1, JNK1shRNA-2, and JNK1shRNA-3) were constructed and transfected to Hca-F cells stably. The most effective shRNA was selected by detecting the expression levels of mRNA and protein. Transwell assay was performed to detect the ability of migration and invasion of cells. A negative control sequence (JNK1shRNA control) and non-transfected normal Hca-F cells were treated as control groups. The "Results" showed that the expression vectors of pSilencer-JNK1shRNA were constructed and transfected to Hca-F cells successfully. The most effective shRNA was JNK1shRNA-2. The expressions of mRNA and protein of JNK1 in Hca-F cells after transfection of JNK1shRNA-2 were decreased significantly compared with the other groups (all, P<0.01; all, P<0.05). The ability of migration and invasion was decreased after down-regulation of JNK1 expression (all, P<0.05). These results suggest that the inhibition of JNK1 expression can decrease ability of migration and invasion of mouse hepatocellular carcinoma cell line in vitro. JNK1 plays an important role in lymphatic metastasis of HCC. It may be a new target for gene therapy of lymphatic metastasis of HCC.

    ABSTRACT: To study the expression of enoyl CoA hydratase 1 (ECH1) and the effect when down-regulation of ECH1 gene expression in mouse hepatocarcinoma cell. Immunofluorescence was used for detecting the expression of ECH1, and stably transfected Hca-F cells with pGPU6/GFP/Neo-shRNA-ECH1 expression plasmids. Cell proliferation was assessed by Cell counting kit-8 (CCK8) assay. The Boyden-transwell assay (8 µm pore size) was performed to analyze the inhibitory effect of shRNA on Hca-F cell migration and invasion. ECH1 expression was obtained in the cytoplasm and upregulated expression in Hca-F cells than that in Hca-P cells. The down-regulation of ECH1 could inhibit the cell proliferation of Hca-F cells, decrease the number of cell pass through Transwell (27.07 ± 17.49) compared with scramble-negative (72.38 ± 18.83) and Hca-F controls (59.06 ± 30.33), decrease the migration capacities of Hca-F cells, increase the ratio of Hca-F cells in S phase (86.1%) compared with scramble-negative (75.8%) and Hca-F controls (66.2%) and decrease the ratio of G(1) phase (9.4%) compared with scramble-negative (24.2%) and Hca-F controls (30.3%). ECH1 serves as a potential critical factor attributes to tumor lymphatic metastasis.

    ABSTRACT: We have previously demonstrated that enoyl coenzyme A hydratase 1 (Ech1) is involved in the lymphatic metastasis of tumors. In this study, RNAi was used to investigate the role of Ech1 in Hca-F, a hepatocarcinoma cell line with high rates of lymphatic metastasis. The downregulation of Ech1 inhibited proliferation of the Hca-F cells, increased the ratio of Hca-F cells in S phase to G(1) phase and decreased the adhesion and migration capacities of Hca-F cells. A higher expression level of Ech1 was confirmed in tissue from patients with gastric carcinoma (GC) with lymph node metastases (LNM), indicating the clinical association with tumor metastasis. The results indicate that Ech1 is a critical factor in the development of lymphatic metastasis in these tumors.

    ABSTRACT: To study the localization and expression of CLIC1 in mouse hepatocarcinoma ascites cell lines with different metastatic potentials. Mouse hepatocarcinoma ascites models (a high potential of lymphatic metastasis cell line-Hca-F, and a low potential of lymphatic metastasis cell line-Hca-P) were investigated using fluorescent two-dimensional difference-gel electrophoresis (2-D DIGE) and mass spectrometry for detecting the localization and expression of CLIC1. Immunofluorescence, immunocytochemistry and Western blot were used to assess CLIC1 protein status in the two cell lines. CLIC1 expression was obtained in the cytoplasm and plasma membrane of cells in both cell lines. 2-D DIGE showed that CLIC1 was overexpressed in Hca-F cells, 1.6 folds higher than that of the Hca-P cells. Hca-F cells also had a higher integral membrane CLIC1 in the Hca-P cells. Although CLIC1 expression is detected in both Hca-F and Hca-P cell lines, a higher protein expression level is present in Hca-F cells. CLIC1 may play an important role in tumor metastasis.
