Anti-angiogenic action of hyperthermia by suppressing gene expression and production of tumour-derived vascular endothelial growth factor in vivo and in vitro.

Sawaji Y, Sato T, Takeuchi A, Hirata M, Ito A - Br. J. Cancer (2002)

Bottom Line: The gene expression of alternative splicing variants for vascular endothelial growth factor, VEGF121, VEGF165 and VEGF189, was constitutively detected in HT-1080 cells, but the VEGF189 transcript was less abundant than VEGF121 and VEGF165.On the other hand, HT-1080 cell-conditioned medium showed vascular endothelial growth factor-dependent cell proliferative activity and the augmentation of pro-matrix metalloproteinase-1 production in human umbilical vein endothelial cells.The augmentation of endothelial-cell proliferation and pro-matrix metalloproteinase-1 production was poor when human umbilical vein endothelial cells were treated with conditioned medium from heat-shocked HT-1080 cells.

Proliferation of HUVECs by HT-1080 cell-derived conditioned medium. HUVECs (500 cells well-1) were treated with control medium (filled circles), with the HT-1080 cell-conditioned medium (filled triangles) or with the heat-shocked HT-1080 cell-conditioned medium (filled squares). The proliferation of HUVECs was monitored by alamer Blue assay as described in Materials and Methods. The data are the mean±s.d. of values from six wells at each point. ***Significantly different from HUVECs treated with control medium (P<0.001). Two independent experiments were reproducible and typical data were shown.

Mentions: VEGF possesses the mitogenic activity to cause proliferation of endothelial cells in angiogenesis (Leung et al, 1989; Connolly et al, 1989; Ferrara et al, 1992). We next examined the endothelial-cell proliferative activity of conditioned medium from untreated and heat-shocked HT-1080 cells. When the conditioned medium from HT-1080 cells was added to HUVECs, the endothelial-cell proliferation was increased in a time-dependent manner and doubled for 3 days (Figure 5Figure 5
