Abstract

Matrix metalloproteinase-9 (MMP-9) associates with cancer cell invasion and metastasis. CL1-5 cells, a human lung adenocarcinoma cell line, expressed an elevated level of MMP-9 and exhibited a highly invasive and metastatic ability. By Matrigel assay and gelatinase zymography, the topoisomerase II poison GL331 was found to dose-dependently inhibit the invasiveness and the level of secreted MMP-9 of CL1-5 cells. Northern blot analysis indicated that cellular MMP-9 mRNA level was decreased after GL331 treatment. Furthermore, GL331-induced down-regulation of mmp-9 gene promoter was demonstrated by using a luciferase reporter gene driven by the -216 to -13 region of the mmp-9 gene promoter cloned from CL1-5 cells. By PCR amplification and gel electrophoresis, we found that GL331 caused shortening of the -216 to -13 region of the mmp-9 promoter. Direct sequencing analysis revealed that the number of d(CA) was reduced from 24 to 18 at the microsatellite d(CA) repeat region of the mmp-9 promoter. The CL1-5 cells transfected with the luciferase reporter containing 18 d(CA)s expressed only 53% of those when the reporter contained 24 d(CA)s. The promoter region of mmp-9 gene contains other positive regulatory elements, such as TRE and κB. We found that GL331 did not significantly influence the luciferase activity driven by TRE or κB. Taken together, these data suggested that GL331 inhibited MMP-9 mRNA expression at least partly through the selective induction of shortening of microsatellite d(CA) repeats. This is the first report that an anti-cancer agent can inhibit mmp-9 gene expression by inducing microsatellite DNA shortening.
