Abstract

We investigated the effects of gossypol acetic acid (GAA) on the proliferation, apoptosis, and expression of DNA methyltransferase 1 (DNMT1) mRNA in human adenoid cystic carcinoma (ACC-M) cells in vitro. The proliferation and apoptosis of ACC-M cells after treatment with different concentrations of GAA were detected using Cell Counting Kit-8 and flow cytometry, respectively. DNMT1 mRNA expression was measured by real-time fluorescence quantitative polymerase chain reaction. The growth of ACC-M cells was inhibited after treatment with GAA for 24, 48, and 72 h. The apoptotic rates of ACC-M cells after treatment with GAA for 72 h were higher than those of control cells (without treatment) (P

We investigated the effects of gossypol acetic acid (GAA) on the proliferation, apoptosis, and expression of DNA methyltransferase 1 (DNMT1) mRNA in human adenoid cystic carcinoma (ACC-M) cells in vitro. The proliferation and apoptosis of ACC-M cells after treatment with different concentrations of GAA were detected using Cell Counting Kit-8 and flow cytometry, respectively. DNMT1 mRNA expression was measured by real-time fluorescence quantitative polymerase chain reaction. The growth of ACC-M cells was inhibited after treatment with GAA for 24, 48, and 72 h. The apoptotic rates of ACC-M cells after treatment with GAA for 72 h were higher than those of control cells (without treatment) (P < 0.05). DNMT1 mRNA expression in ACC-M after treatment with GAA for 72 h was lower than that in control cells (P < 0.05). GAA had inhibitory effects on the proliferation and induced apoptosis of human ACC-M cells, while GAA also reduced the expression level of DNMT1 mRNA in ACC-M cells.
