Abstract
Purpose :Previously, we reported that the expression of E-cadherin was significantly decreased according to the increase of the level of hepatocyte growth factor (HGF) in gastric cancer tissue. In this work, the effect of HGF on the cell-cell adhesion and intracellular distribution of E-cadherin in the gastric carcinoma cell lines were studied.



Materials and Methods :Western blot analysis was performed to confirm the presence or abscence of c-Met and E-cadherin in SNU-1, 5, and 16 cells. Tyrosine phosphorylation of c-Met, E-cadherin, α-, β-, γ-catenins was checked by immunoprecipitation. The morphologic changes induced by HGF were studied with immunocytochemical staining. Functional proportion of E-cadherin was estimated by cell fractionation. The effect of HGF on cell proliferation and invasion was also assessed.



Results :Among SNU-1, 5, and 16 cell lines, only SNU-16 cells expressed both E-cadherin and c-Met. A morphological change from epithelial shape to fibroblastic one was observed in the SNU-16 cells after treatment with HGF. In addition, E-cadherin expression of the SNU-16 cells was shifted from the membrane and to the cytoplasm, and the functional fraction of E-cadherin was decreased in the SNU-16 cells treated with HGF. On the other hand, HGF increased the proliferation and invasion of the SNU-16 cells.



Conclusion :These results suggest that HGF may regulate cell adhesion in gastric carcinomas via the cellular redistribution and functional change of E-cadherin.
