Abstract
Abstract Aims: To investigate the effect of chloride intracellular channel 1 (CLIC1) on the proliferation, migration, and apoptosis of prostate cancer cell lines PC-3 and DU145 and the possible molecular mechanisms.Using the technique of RNA interference, the expression of CLIC1 was downregulated in the PC-3 and DU145 cell lines. MTT assay, Transwell chamber, and flow cytometry were used to determine the effect of CLIC1 on the proliferation, migration, and apoptosis ability of PC-3 and DU145 cells. The levels of phosphorylated extracellular signal-regulated kinase 1/2 (p-ERK1/2), ERK1/2, matrix metalloproteinase (MMP)-2, and MMP-9 were examined by western blotting.The results showed that the knockdown of CLIC1 exerts inhibitory effects on the proliferation and migration of PC-3 and DU145 cells. At the same time, the authors found that the knockdown of CLIC1 has no effect on the apoptosis in PC-3 and DU145 cells. Meanwhile, the levels of p-ERK1/2, MMP-2, and MMP-9 were decreased in the CLIC1 small interfering RNA (siRNA) group compared with the control and vector groups.These results indicate that CLIC1 could regulate prostate cancer cell proliferation and migration by regulating the mitogen-activated protein kinase (MAPK)/ERK pathway and offers a candidate molecular target for prostate cancer prevention and therapy.
