The role of protein kinase Calpha in U-87 glioma invasion

To investigate the hypothesis that protein kinase Calpha (PKCalpha) is functional glial tumor cell invasion, stable PKCalpha sense and antisense transfected U-87 cell lines were established and PKCalpha expression characterized by Western blot and PKC activity assays. Invasion assays including barrier migration (Koochekpour et al., Extracellular matrix proteins inhibit proliferation, upregulate migration and induce morphological changes in human glioma lines. Eur. J. Cancer, 1995, 31, 375-380; Merzak et al., CD44 mediates human glioma cell adhesion and invasion in vitro. Cancer Res., 1994, 54, 3988-3992; Merzak et al., Cell surface gangliosides are involved in the control of human glioma cell invasion in vitro. Neurosci. Lett., 1994, 177, 11-16), and spheroid confrontation were used to study the relationship between PKCalpha expression and invasiveness. PKCalpha overexpressing clones show increased barrier migration (1.5x) relative to the control transfected clones. PKCalpha inhibited clones exhibited reduced invasiveness, to < 50%. In coculture with PKCalpha overexpressing clones, the remaining normal fetal rat brain aggregate volume was significantly decreased (up to 200%) but 90% of the initial brain volume was left in PKCal...Continue Reading

Adhesion Molecules in Health and Disease

Cell adhesion molecules are a subset of cell adhesion proteins located on the cell surface involved in binding with other cells or with the extracellular matrix in the process called cell adhesion. In essence, cell adhesion molecules help cells stick to each other and to their surroundings. Cell adhesion is a crucial component in maintaining tissue structure and function. Discover the latest research on adhesion molecule and their role in health and disease here.
