- Background : The fas (CD95/Apo-1)/Fas ligand (FasL) system is reported to be involved in the suppression and stimulation of immune responses, and the reactive oxygen species (ROS) play a key
role in the mechanism for resisting Fas-induced apoptosis of tumor cells. In this work, we investigated
the effect of endogenous interleukin (IL)-18 on the regulation of immune related factors such as Fas/
Fas ligand and intercellular adhesion molecules (ICAM), and of the ROS level in IL-18 receptor (IL18R) transfected C-33A cells.
Methods : The cervical cancer cell line C-33A was transfected with IL-18R (C-33A/IL-18R). For the
detection of pro-inflammatory cytokines in C-33A/IL-18R, reverse-transcriptase (RT) polymerase chain
reaction (PCR), in situ enzyme-linked immunosorbent assay (ELISA), Western blot, and Northern blot
analyses were performed. The level of p53 was determined by Western blot. Intracellular ROS, ICAM1, FasL, and apoptosis in C-33A/IL-18R were measured by flow cytometry.
Results : In situ ELISA and RT-PCR showed that, among pro-inflammatory cytokines, IL-18 was
induced in C-33A/IL-18R whereas there appeared no induction of the IL-1 , IL-1 , tumor necrosis
factor (TNF)- , and IL-6. IL-18R transfection showed a slight enhancement of the Fas via upregulation of intracellular ROS and IL-18 in C-33A cells whereas there was no effect on the expression of
p53, ICAM-1 and FasL. However, treatment with the agonistic anti-Fas antibody showed that the
enhanced surface Fas was not functional or was not enough to induce apoptosis and the C-33A/IL18R cells escaped still resistant to Fas-mediated apoptosis.
Conclusions : IL-18R transfection induced IL-18 expression and enhanced ROS and Fas expression in C-33A cells. These results show that C-33A/IL-18R cells escaped from immunuosurveillance
by failure to express ICAM-1 adhesion molecules and Fas ligand, and are resistant to Fas-mediated
apoptosis. (Korean J Lab Med 2003; 23: 455-63)
