Dynamics of intercellular and extracellular (exosomal) miRNAs in hypoxic RPMI8226 cells

ABSTRACT: Recently, the existence of extracellular miRNAs enclosed in exosomes has raised the possibility that they play an important role in cell-cell communication. To gain more insight into cell-cell communication via exosomal miRNAs, we investigated whether or not tumor cells exposed to hypoxia secrete exosomes which may affect angiogeneic activity. We used RPMI8226 cells, as donor cells, and HUVECs as recipient cells. Exosomes derived from RPMI8226 cells cultured in normoxia (20%) or hypoxia (1%) for 24 h were used for validation of angiogeneic activity, such as tube formation assay. The exosome secreted from RPMI8226 cells in hypoxic condition significantly enhanced tube formation by HUVECs when compared with exosome obtained from RPMI8226 cell in normoxic condition. To identify cellular and exosomal miRNAs universally responding to hypoxic condition, we assess the expression profiles of intercellular and extracellular miRNAs in RPMI8226 cells cultured in normoxia (20%) or hypoxia (1%) for 24 h using Taqman MicroRNA Array v2.0 (Applied Biosystems, Bedford, MA). RPMI8226 cells were cultured for 24 hours under hypoxic conditions (1% O2) or normoxic conditions (20% O2). The exosome fraction was obtained from culture medium using Exoquick Exosome Precipitation Solution (System Biosciences, Mountain View, CA, USA). Isolation of cellular and exosomal miRNAs was performed using the miRNsasy kit (Qiagen). The expression profile of miRNAs was determined using the Human Taqman miRNA Arrays A (Applied Biosystems). RNU6B and a spike control (ath-miR159) were used as an invariant control for the cell and exosome, respectively. QRT-PCR was carried out on an Applied Biosystems 7900HT thermal cycler using the manufacturer’s recommended program. Finally, all the raw data from each array was run on Data Assist Software ver.3.1 (Applied Biosystems).

Hypoxia plays an important role during the evolution of cancer cells and their microenvironment. Emerging evidence suggests communication between cancer cells and their microenvironment occurs via exosomes. This study aimed to clarify whether hypoxia affects angiogenic function through exosomes secreted from leukemia cells. We used the human leukemia cell line K562 for exosome-generating cells and human umbilical vein endothelial cells (HUVECs) for exosome target cells. Exosomes derived from K56  ...[more]
