Abstract :

Objective. Deoxyschizandrin has a significant inhibitory effect on a variety of tumor cells. However, the effect of Deoxyschizandrin on bladder cancer cells and its mechanism are still unclear. Methods. Bladder cancer cells were treated with different concentrations of Deoxyschizandrin for 24h, 48h, and 72h. The inhibition rate of cell proliferation was detected by CCK-8 assay. The changes of cell migration and invasion were detected by wound healing and Transwell assay. Based on the structure of Deoxyschizandrin, the protein targets of Deoxyschizandrin were predicted by bioinformatics database and verified by RNA and protein. Then, the expressions of ALOX5 and PI3K-AKT signaling pathway proteins were detected by Western blot in bladder cancer cells treated with Deoxyschizandrin. Result. Deoxyschizandrin inhibited the proliferation, migration, and invasion of bladder cancer cells in a time- and concentration-dependent manner. Bioinformatics analysis showed that Deoxyschizandrin had 100 protein targets; among them, the score of ALOX5 was the highest, and the mRNA and protein levels of ALOX5 decreased after treatment with different concentrations of Deoxyschizandrin. Western blot results showed that compared with the control group, Deoxyschizandrin could significantly reduce the expression of p-PI3K and p-AKT, and overexpression of ALOX5 could significantly enhance the expression of p-PI3K and p-AKT. Compared with Deoxyschizandrin or overexpression of ALOX5, the expression of p-PI3K and p-AKT of Deoxyschizandrin combined with overexpression of ALOX5 recovered. Conclusion. Deoxyschizandrin inhibits the proliferation, migration, and invasion of bladder cancer cells through ALOX5 regulating PI3K-AKT signaling pathway.
