Bottom Line: Six of seven ovarian adenocarcinoma cell lines were inhibited in their growth by RA and by synthetic retinoids in a dose dependent manner.The knowledge that RA and retinoids exert their action on the cells via nuclear receptors led us to examine the expression of RAR-alpha, -beta and -gamma mRNA by these cell lines by polymerase chain reaction following reverse transcription.Our data indicate that there was no direct association between the presence of RAR subtype transcripts and the response to retinoids in ovarian cancer cell lines.

ABSTRACT
The growth inhibitory effects of all-trans and 13-cis retinoic acid (RA) and of the synthetic retinoids TTNPB, TTNPB-ethylester and TTNN were studied on seven human epithelial ovarian cancer cell lines and one ovarian teratocarcinoma cell line. Six of seven ovarian adenocarcinoma cell lines were inhibited in their growth by RA and by synthetic retinoids in a dose dependent manner. No response to these substances was observed for the ovarian teratocarcinoma cell line. The knowledge that RA and retinoids exert their action on the cells via nuclear receptors led us to examine the expression of RAR-alpha, -beta and -gamma mRNA by these cell lines by polymerase chain reaction following reverse transcription. All cell lines expressed RAR-alpha and -gamma mRNA and six of the eight cell lines were found to express additionally RAR-beta mRNA, among them the ovarian teratocarcinoma cell line. Our data indicate that there was no direct association between the presence of RAR subtype transcripts and the response to retinoids in ovarian cancer cell lines.
