    摘要: This study aimed to investigate the anti-metastatic activity of alpha-carotene (AC) in Lewis lung carcinoma (LLC) and in combination with taxol in LLC-xenografted C57BL/6 mice. Cell culture studies reveal that AC significantly inhibited invasion, migration and activities of matrix metalloproteinase (MMP)-2, -9 and urokinase plasminogen activator but increased protein expression of tissue inhibitor of MMP (TIMP)-1, -2 and plasminogen activator inhibitor (PAI)-1. These effects of AC are similar to those of beta-carotene at the same concentration (2.5 mu M). AC (2.5 mu M) also significantly inhibited integrin beta 1-mediated phosphorylation of focal adhesion kinase (FAK) which then decreased the phosphorylation of MAPK family. Findings from the animal model reveal that AC treatment (5 mg/kg) alone significantly decreased lung metastasis without affecting primary tumor growth, whereas taxol treatment (6 mg/kg) alone exhibited significant inhibition on both actions, as compared to tumor control group. AC treatment alone significantly decreased protein expression of integrin beta 1 but increased protein expression of TIMP-1 and PAI-1 without affecting protein expression of TIMP-2 and phosphorylation of FAK in lung tissues, whereas taxol treatment alone significantly increased protein expression of TIMP-1, PAI-1 and TIMP-2 but decreased protein expression of integrin beta 1 and phosphorylation of FAK. The combined treatment produced stronger actions on lung metastasis and lung tissues protein expression of TIMP-1, TIMP-2 and PAI-1. Overall, we demonstrate that AC effectively inhibits LLC metastasis and suppresses lung metastasis in combination with taxol in LLC-bearing mice, suggesting that AC could be used as an anti-metastatic agent or as an adjuvant for anti-cancer drugs.
