RESUMEN

Pentraxin-3 (PTX3), a modulator of tumor-associated inflammation, is known to be positively correlated with tumor grade and severity of malignancies, but the function and molecular underlying mechanisms of PTX3 remain unclear. In the present study, the expression of PTX3 in human lung adenocarcinoma (LAC) was examined by immunohistochemical assay using a tissue microarray procedure. A loss-of-function experiment was performed to explore the effects of lentiviral vector-mediated PTX3 shRNA (Lv-shPTX3) on cell growth and invasive potential in LAC cell lines (A549 and LETPα-2), assessed by MTT and Transwell assays, respectively. We found that the expression of PTX3 protein was significantly increased in LAC tissues compared with that in adjacent non-cancerous tissues (ANCT) (60.42% vs. 29.17%, P=0.004), and positively correlated with lymphatic invasion of the tumor (P=0.006). Furthermore, knockdown of PTX3 suppressed tumor proliferation and invasion of LAC cells, followed by decreased expression of p-AKT, p-NF-kappa B, PCNA, and MMP-9. Taken together, our findings demonstrate that upregulation of PTX3 expression is correlated with tumor metastasis of LAC patients, and knockdown of PTX3 blocks the development of LAC through inhibition of the AKT and NF-kappa B pathways, suggesting that PTX3 may serve as a potential therapeutic target for the treatment of cancer.
