Abstract

Transforming growth factor (TGF)-β1, a crucial molecule in metastatic bone cancer, stimulates collagenase-3 expression in the human breast cancer cell line, MDA-MB231. Cycloheximide inhibited this stimulation, indicating that de novo protein synthesis was essential for this response. We examined whether mitogen-activated protein kinase (MAPK) and/or Smad pathways are involved in TGF-β1-stimulated collagenase-3 expression in MDA-MB231 cells. Biochemical blockade of extracellular regulated kinase-1/2 and p38 MAPK pathways partially abolished TGF-β1-stimulated collagenase-3 mRNA expression; whereas overexpression of a dominant negative form of Smad3 completely blocked the TGF-β1-response. These data indicate that TGF-β1-induced MAPK and Smad pathways are involved in TGF-β1-stimulated collagenase-3 expression in MDA-MB231 cells.
