Abstract

Attacking angiogenesis is considered an effective strategy for controls the expansion and metastasis of tumors and other related-diseases. The aim of this study was to assess the effects of moscatilin, a bibenzyl derivative, on VEGF and bFGF-induced angiogenesis in cultured human umbilical vein endothelial cells (HUVECs) in vitro and in vivo. Moscatilin significantly inhibited growth of lung cancer cell line A549 (NSCLC) and suppressed growth factor-induced neovascularization. In addition, VEGF- and bFGF-induced cell proliferation, migration, and tube formation of HUVECs was markedly inhibited by moscatilin. Western blotting analysis of cell signaling molecules indicated that moscatilin inhibited ERK1/2, Akt, and eNOS signaling pathways in HUVECs. These results suggest that inhibition of angiogenesis by moscatilin may be a major mechanism in cancer therapy.
