Objective To investigate the feasibility and specificity of gene therapy for breast cancer by chemically modified siRNA mediated RNA interference using in-vitro RNA(siRNA) inhibited vascular endothelial growth factor-C(VEGF-C) expression.Methods siRNA targeting VEGF-C gene was designed,cationic liposome LipofectamineTM 2000 used as transfecing agent,and ds-siRNA was transfected into MCF-7 cells with lipofectamine.Blank control group(only serum-and antibiotic-free medium was added),liposome control group(only LipofectamineTM 2000),three siRNA-concentration-gradient groups(50,100 and 200 nmol/L) and siRNA SCR group(100 nmol/L) were established.The proliferation of MCF-7 cells was detected by MTT colorimetry,and apoptosis measured by Hoechst 33258 staining.The expressions of mRNA of VEGF-C and p53 gene were detected by both RT-PCR and Western blot before and after transfection.Results The growth of MCF-7 cells was inhibited at 48 h after siRNA transfection,and apoptosis bodies were observed in cells with fluorescent stain by Hoechst 33258.The expressions of VEGF-C and p53 were significantly down-regulated(F=30.74-114.11,q=5.74-20.75,P0.01).No significance of differences was noted among blank control,lipofectamine control and siRNA SCR groups(P0.05) Conclusion The interference of modified siRNA with chemically-mediated RNAi can down regulate VEGF-C gene expression and inhibit cell proliferation of MCF-7.The p53 gene in breast cancer is associated with the expression of VEGF-C,which indicates that mutant p53 is likely involved in the regulation of VEGF-C.
