RESUMO

EGFR signaling plays important roles in the development of eccrine sweat glands. We previously demonstrate that Matrigel induces eccrine sweat gland cells to reconstruct the three-dimensional (3D) structures of eccrine sweat glands, but the mechanisms are still unknown. In the study, eccrine sweat gland cells were cultured within a 3D Matrigel, and EGFR inhibitor AG1478, or MEK1/2 inhibitor U0126, were added to the medium respectively. The morphology of the 3D-reconstructed eccrine sweat gland-like structures was observed, the localization of phospho-EGFR was detected, and protein levels of EGFR, phospho-EGFR, phospho-JAK, phospho-AKT and phospho-ERK were examined. The results showed that cells treatment with AG1478 from Day 0 of 3D cultures blocked formation of spheroid-like structures. AG1478 administration caused reduced phospho-EGFR, concomitant with downregulation of phospho-ERK1/2, but not phospho-JAK or phospho-AKT. Phospho-EGFR and phospho-ERK were reduced, and only a small number of 3D-structures were formed following treatment with U0126. We conclude that EGFR plays important roles in Matrigel-induced 3D structures of eccrine sweat gland-like structures, and ERK1/2 signaling is responsible, at least in part, for the effect of EGFR.
