IL‑6 prevents CXCL8‑induced stimulation of EpCAM expression in ovarian cancer cells.

Epithelial cell adhesion molecule (EpCAM), which is expressed in the majority of epithelial tissues, exhibits tumor growth promoting abilities and is overexpressed in human epithelial ovarian cancer. Therefore, EpCAM is considered to be a promising target for specific immune‑based therapies. The present study evaluated the role of IL‑6 and IL‑8 in the expression of EpCAM in the A2780 human ovarian cancer cell line. Furthermore, the cellular localization of the EpCAM protein in A2780 cells was determined and the effect of EpCAM inhibition on the proliferation of the A2780 cells was investigated. An MTT assay demonstrated that blocking EpCAM with anti‑EPCAM antibodies had no effect on cellular metabolic activity (proliferation). Gene expression analysis revealed that IL‑8 increased EpCAM expression, whereas IL‑6 and the combination of IL‑6/IL‑8 had no effect on EpCAM expression. Immunofluorescence analysis confirmed that EpCAM is expressed on A2780 cell membranes. The present results demonstrated that IL‑8 increased EpCAM expression at the mRNA level in ovarian cancer cells and suggested a potential role of IL‑6 as an inhibitor of IL‑8‑stimulated EpCAM expression.

Formulation of nanoparticles ribosome inactivating proteins from Mirabilis jalapa L. (RIP MJ) conjugated AntiEpCAM antibody using low chain chitosan-pectin and cytotoxic activity against breast cancer cell line.

Ribosome Inactivating Proteins (RIPs) isolated from Mirabilis jalapa L. (MJ protein) leaves showed high cytotoxic effect on malignant. Chitosan nanoparticles have frequently been used in protein delivery applications. The aim of this study was to develop targeted drug delivery system of RIP MJ for breast cancer therapy with chitosan nanoparticles conjugated antiEpCAM antibody. RIP MJ nanoparticles were prepared using low viscous chitosan and pectin using polyelectrolit complex method, followed by conjugation process with antiEpCAM antibody. Characterization of this formula was then carried out for its entrapment efficiency, particles size, zeta potential, morphology using transmission electron microscope (TEM) and cytotoxic assay against T47D and Vero cell line. The optimal concentration of MJ protein; low viscous chitosan; pectin for preparing AntiEpCAM conjugated of RIP MJ nanoparticles was 0.1%; 0.01%;1% (m/v) respectively and showed satisfactory formula with the average particle size of 376.8±105.2nm, polydispersity index (PI) 0.401, zeta potential 43,71 mV, high entrapment efficiency 98,97±0,12%. Transmission electron microscope (TEM) imaging showed a spherical and homogenous structure for nanoparticles. The in vitro cytotoxicity analysis showed that RIP MJ nanoparticle had more cytotoxic effect compared to unformulated RIP against T47D cell-lines. AntiEpCAM conjugated RIP MJ nanoparticles however, increased cytotoxic effect of RIPs on Vero cell-lines not for T47D cell-lines. Chitosan-Pectin nanoparticles suitable for delivering protein to target cancer cells.
