要約

Curcumin (diferuloylmethane) has been widely studied for its tumor inhibiting and anticarcino-genic properties. In the present communication, we studied the effect of curcumin on matrix-metalloproteinase-2 (MMP-2), integrin receptors, and focal adhesion kinase (FAK) in human laryngeal cancer cells, HEp2. Methods: HEp2 cells were treated with curcumin (5 μM) for 30 days and then grown without curcumin for 28 days. Effect of curcumin on MMP-2 expression and activity and on membrane type matrixmetalloproteinase-1 (MT1-MMP), FAK, and integrin receptors was studied by zymography, Western blot, ELISA, RT-PCR, and cell adhesion assay. Results: Treatment of HEp2 cells with curcumin downregulated MMP-2 expression and activity and expression of integrin receptors, FAK, and MT1-MMP to almost background levels. MMP-2 (but not MMP-9) mRNA expression was abolished on curcumin treatment, indicating specific inhibition of MMP-2. Invasive potential of HEp2 cells was also significantly reduced. After drug withdrawal, expression of MMP-2, integrin receptors, MT1-MMP, and FAK returned to control levels. However, MMP-2 activity in serum free medium remained low. Conclusions: Downregulation of integrin receptors and low levels of FAK may hinder integrin-mediated signal transduction, preventing upregulation of MMP-2 activity. Reduction of MMP-2 activity and inhibition of HEp2 cell invasion by curcumin strongly indicate the potential of curcumin as an inhibitor of tumor cell invasion and metastasis.
