Abstract 

The antitumoral effects of antisense RNA to K-ras were investigated in gastric cancer cell lines by examining the level of K-ras expression and the tumorigenicity in vitro and in vivo. Polymerase chain reaction-single strand conformation polymorphism (PCR-SSCP), DNA sequencing, and immunoblotting analysis revealed that YCC-1 gastric cancer cells overexpressed wild type K-ras, whereas YCC-2 cells had a homozygous mutation in codon 12 from GGT (glycine) to AGT (serine), while SNU-1 cells had a heterozygous mutation to GAT (asparagine) in the identical position. Both YCC-1 and YCC-2 cells were transduced by LNC-AS/K-ras containing the antisense 2.2 kb genomic K-ras DNA fragment covering exon 2 and exon 3 specific for K-ras. The application of antisense K-ras significantly downregulated the expression of K-ras and had no influence on the expression of either H-ras or N-ras. The antisense-transduced YCC-2 cells grew considerably slower than the control group transduced by LNCX, whereas the growth inhibition of antisense-transduced YCC-1 cells was less prominent than that of transduced YCC-2 cells. In addition, the tumorigenicity of YCC-2 cells transduced by LNC-AS/K-ras was totally lost. Therefore, our results imply that the specific inhibition of K-ras p21 protein can be accomplished by introducing the antisense covering the K-ras- specific region to gastric cancer cells with aberrant K-ras expression, resulting in a reduction of the growth rate and suppression of tumorigenicity.
