Numerous reports have shown an association between overexpression of the epidermal growth factor receptor (EGFR), and poor prognosis in head and neck squamous cell carcinomas (HNSCC), however, the underlying mechanisms are still unclear. In the present study, we set out to determine whether EGFR expression was associated with in vitro invasive capacity in a panel of four established and ten newly derived HNSCC lines. Ten of the cell lines expressed high levels of EGFR as determined by a ligand-binding assay and dot blot analysis, whereas the remaining four showed weak overexpression or normal levels of EGFR. The ability of cells to invade through Matrigel was found to be higher in the EGFR overexpressing cell lines (p < 0. 0001). Expression levels of matrix metalloproteinases (MMP-1, MMP-2, MMP-3, MMP-7, MMP-9, MMP-10, MMP-11, MMP-13, MT1-MMP) and tissue inhibitors of MMP (TIMP-1, TIMP-2) were evaluated by semiquantitative RT-PCR, substrate zymography and western blot. We found a strong positive correlation between EGFR levels and the expression of MMP-9 mRNA (r(2) = 0.95; p < 0.0001), MMP-9 enzyme activity (r(2) = 0.8099; p < 0.0001) and an inverse correlation with TIMP-1 (r(2) = 0.48; p = 0.0059). In six selected HNSCC lines,...Continue Reading
