Bottom Line: Further, we found combined treatment with BRACs and RAF, MEK, or JNK inhibitors could enhance the antimetastatic activity, compared with that of each treatment.Transient transfection with small interfering RNAs (siRNAs) specific for raf, mek, and jnk inhibited their mRNA expression in MDA-MB-453 cells.Moreover, cotreatment with BRACs and siRNA induces a more remarkable inhibitory effect than that by either substance alone.

ABSTRACT
Overexpression of human epidermal growth factor receptor 2 (HER2) drives the biology of 30% of breast cancer cases. As a transducer of HER2 signaling, RAS/RAF/MAPK pathway plays a pivotal role in the development of breast cancer. In this study, we examined the molecular mechanisms underlying the chemopreventive effects of black rice anthocyanins (BRACs) extract and identified their molecular targets in HER2(+) breast cancer cells. Treatment of MDA-MB-453 cells (HER2(+)) with BRACs inhibited cell migration and invasion, suppressed the activation of mitogen-activated protein kinase kinase kinase (RAF), mitogen-activated protein kinase kinase (MEK), and c-Jun N-terminal kinase (JNK), and downregulated the secretion of matrix metalloproteinase 2 (MMP2) and MMP9. BRACs also weakened the interactions of HER2 with RAF, MEK, and JNK proteins, respectively, and decreased the mRNA expression of raf, mek, and jnk. Further, we found combined treatment with BRACs and RAF, MEK, or JNK inhibitors could enhance the antimetastatic activity, compared with that of each treatment. Transient transfection with small interfering RNAs (siRNAs) specific for raf, mek, and jnk inhibited their mRNA expression in MDA-MB-453 cells. Moreover, cotreatment with BRACs and siRNA induces a more remarkable inhibitory effect than that by either substance alone. In summary, our study suggested that BRACs suppress metastasis in breast cancer cells by targeting the RAS/RAF/MAPK pathway.

Effects of black rice anthocyanins (BRACs) extract and small interfering RNA (siRNA) on the activation of RAF/MAPK in MDA-MB-453 cells. MDA-MB-453 cells were treated with BRACs (0 or 200 μg/mL) with or without raf-, mek-, or jnk-siRNAs for 24 h. Phosphorylation of (a) RAF, (b) MEK1, and (c) JNK was determined using immunoblotting (IB). Expression of β-actin served as an internal control.

Mentions: In addition, we detected phosphorylation of RAF1, MEK, and JNK1/2 kinase in cells, while treatment with their respective siRNAs downregulated p-RAF, p-MEK, and p-JNK protein expression in cell lysates. Interestingly, the cotreatment decreased the phosphorylation of RAF, MEK, and JNK more significantly than using either substance alone (Figure 9).
