Biological effects of platelet-derived growth factor receptor alpha lockade in uterine cancer


ABSTRACT: Platelet-derived growth factor receptor alpha (PDGFRα) expression is frequently observed in many kinds of cancer and is a candidate for therapeutic targeting. Here, we evaluated the biological significance of PDGFRα and PDGFRα blockade (using a fully humanized monoclonal antibody, 3G3) in uterine cancer. PDGFRα was expressed in uterine cancer cells, and its blockade with 3G3 resulted in inhibition of PDGFRα phosphorylation and of downstream signaling molecules, AKT and MAPK. Cell viability and invasive potential of uterine cancer cells were also inhibited by treatment of 3G3. Moreover, greater therapeutic effects were observed for 3G3 in combination with chemotherapy than for either drug alone in orthotopic mouse models of uterine cancer. These findings identify PDGFRα as an attractive therapeutic target for uterine cancer. Two groups of samples are included: 1.Hec-1A 2.Rl-95-2. Gene expression profiles of Hec-1A cells were compared to that of RL95-2 cells.

Platelet-derived growth factor receptor α (PDGFRα) expression is frequently observed in many kinds of cancer and is a candidate for therapeutic targeting. This preclinical study evaluated the biologic significance of PDGFRα and PDGFRα blockade (using a fully humanized monoclonal antibody, 3G3) in uterine cancer.Expression of PDGFRα was examined in uterine cancer clinical samples and cell lines, and biologic effects of PDGFRα inhibition were evaluated using in vitro (cell viability, apoptosis, an  ...[more]
