Colorectal carcinoma (CRC) is often lethal when invasion and/or metastasis occur. 15-lipoxygenase-1 (15-LO-1), an enzyme of the inflammatory eicosanoid pathway, oxidatively metabolizes linoleic acid and its expression is repressed in CRC. In the present study, the hypothesis that the lack of 15-LO-1 expression in CRC cells may contribute to the tumorigenesis was investigated. Therefore 15-LO-1 was introduced to colon cancer cell line HT-29 that does not have detectable levels of the 15-LO-1. The HT-29 cells were transiently transfected with the eukaryotic expression vector pcDNA3.1-15-LO-1 and the effects of 15-LO-1 expression on the proliferation, apoptosis as wells as metastatic potential of the cells were investigated. Cellular proliferation was analyzed by MTT assay and the apoptotic potential of 15-LO-1 was evaluated by acridine orange, floating cell ratio and caspase-3 assays as well as expression levels of the antiapoptotic protein XIAP. Cellular migration and invasion were investigated by Boyden chamber migration and Matrigel invasion assay.The data indicates that 15-LO-1 expression significantly decreased cell proliferation and increased apoptosis. In addition, a significant reduction was observed in migratory and invasive capacity 15-LO-1 expression also significantly reduced the expression of metastasis associated 1 protein (MTA-1). Taken together we propose that 15-LO-1 expression in CRC can inhibit colon cancer cell growth through induction of apoptotic cell death and may contribute to the inhibition of metastatic capacity in vitro which may be exploited for therapeutic purposes.

Colorectal carcinoma (CRC) is often lethal when invasion and/or metastasis occur. 15-Lipoxygenase-1 (15-LO-1), a member of the inflammatory eicosanoid pathway, oxidatively metabolizes linoleic acid and its expression is repressed in CRC. In this study, we investigated the hypothesis that the lack of 15-LO-1 expression in CRC cells might contribute to tumorigenesis. Therefore we introduced 15-LO-1 into HCT-116 and HT-29 cells that do not have detectable levels of 15-LO-1. Our data indicate that expression of...
Differential gene expression analysis in drug resistant multiple myeloma cell lines
Mutlu, Pelin; Gündüz, Ufuk; Department of Biology (2009)
The emergence of drug-resistance of tumor cells is a major complication for succesful chemotherapy. In this study, the molecular mechanisms of resistance to prednisone, vincristine and melphalan in multiple myeloma cell lines, RPMI-8226 and U-266 were investigated. Drug resistance was induced by application of the drugs by stepwise dose increments and confirmed by XTT cytotoxicity assay. Gene expression analysis demostrated that MDR1 gene is one of the most important factor causing the multidrug resistance ...
Investigation of docetaxel and doxorubicin resistance in mcf-7 breast carcinoma cell line
Darcansoy İşeri, Özlem; Gündüz, Ufuk; Department of Biotechnology (2009)
Multidrug resistance phenotype of tumor cells describes resistance to wide range of structurally unrelated anticancer agents and is a serious limitation to effective chemotherapy. It is a multifactor yet not fully elucidated phenomenon by the involvement of diverse cellular pathways. Aim of this study was to investigate the resistance mechanisms developed against docetaxel and doxorubicin that are widely used in the treatment of breast cancer in model cell line MCF-7. Resistant sublines were developed by ap...
Molecular mechanisms of vincristine and paclitaxel resistance in mcf-7 cell line
Demirel Kars, Meltem; Gündüz, Ufuk; Department of Biotechnology (2008)
Resistance to broad spectrum of chemotherapeutic agents in cancer cell lines and tumors has been called multiple drug resistance (MDR). In this study, the molecular mechanisms of resistance to two anticancer agents (paclitaxel and vincristine) in mammary carcinoma cell line MCF-7 were investigated. MCF-7 cells were selected in the presence of paclitaxel and vincristine by stepwise dose increments. The cell viability and growth profiles of resistant sublines were examined. As the resistance indices increased...
Cancer modeling via biologically validated genes
Karakelle, Barış Su; Purutçuoğlu Gazi, Vilda; Ürün, Yüksel (2017-05-10)
The cancer disease is the second most common disease type seen after the frequency of the cardiovascular diseases. The frequency of this genetic disease changes with respect to the gender. Accordingly, the gynecological cancer, which covers ovarian, endometrial or cervical cancer, is the second most common cancer type in women after the breast cancer. Similar to other cancer types, the gynecological cancer is the system disease, meaning that the malfunctions and mutations in the gene regulatory ...
