Role of p38 pathway in PMA-induced in vitro invasion of JAR human choriocarcinoma cell line



Role of p38 pathway in PMA-induced in vitro invasion of JAR human choriocarcinoma cell line



Di 1 Jun Yi Da Xue Xue Bao 23(8): 792-794



To investigate the role of p38 mitogen-activated protein kinase (MAPK) signal transduction pathways in regulating the in vitro invasion of JAR human choriocarcinoma cells induced by phorbol 12-myristate 13-acetate (PMA). ELISA was used to detect the kinase activity of the JAR cells in response to PMA stimulation, and the in vitro invasion capabilities of the stimulated cells were observed using transwell assay. Changes in the proliferation and activity of the JAR cells cultured in vitro following PMA treatment were also observed by MTT assay. p38 MAPK was activated dose-dependently in JAR cells upon the stimulation by PMA, which significantly enhanced the in vitro invasion of the JAR cells, while treatment of the cells with SB203580, a specific inhibitor of p38 MAPK, inhibited the invasion of the cells. The growth of the cells, as observed from the growth curves, was not affected by the treatment of PMA and/or SB203580. Activation of p38 MAPK signal transduction pathway may enhance the invasion capability of JAR cells, and p38 MAPK inhibition may therefore yield new possibility to control the invasion of choriocarcinoma.
