Abstract: The efficacy of 17 β-estradiol (E2) was valid in some cancers, while its effects on squamous cell lung carcinoma (SCLC) were still unclear. The aim of our study was to investigate the potential targets and molecular mechanisms of E2 in SCLC cells.
Two RNA libraries from human lung carcinoma cells (SK-MES-1) with and without E2 treatment were constructed and sequenced. The differentially expressed genes (DEGs) between cells with or without E2 treatment were identified by cuffdiff software. Hierarchical Clustering Analysis (HCA) was performed for displaying gene expression changes and classification. Furthermore, enrichment analyses of Kyoto Encyclopedia of Genes and Genomes (KEGG) pathway and Gene Ontology Biological Process (GO BP) terms were performed through DAVID. The protein-protein interaction (PPI) network was constructed through STRING. Additionally, differentially expressed lncRNAs were also selected by cuffdiff software.
Total 129 DEGs including 58 up- and 71 down- regulated genes were obtained. Cancer-related pathways including small cell lung cancer, hypertrophic cardiomyopathy (HCM) and pathways in cancer and biological processes including regulation of phosphorus metabolic process, protein localization and nucleus organization were enriched. The PPI network with 113 nodes and 312 edges was constructed. CASP3, ITGA2, COL4A6, PML and CDC25B were identified as hub nodes which had more interactions with others in the PPI network. Furthermore, eight up-regulated and ten down-regulated lncRNAs were selected.
CASP3, ITGA2 and Lnc-DLK1-4:31 (one of down-regulated lncRNAs) might play pivotal roles in E2 treated SCNC cells by influencing cell apoptosis, angiogenesis and cell invasion respectively.
