Abstract

Background: MEIS1 (Myeloid ecotropic viral integration site 1), as a homeobox (HOX) transcription factor, has a dual function in different types of cancer. Although numerous roles are proposed for MEIS1 in differentiation, stem cell function, gastro-intestinal development and tumorigenesis, the involved molecular mechanisms are poor understood. Our aim in this study was to elucidate the functional correlation be-tween MEIS1, as regulator of differentiation process, and the involved genes in cell differentiation in human esophageal squamous carcinoma (ESC) cell line KYSE‐30.Methods: The KYSE‐30 cells were transduced using recombinant retroviral parti-cles containing specific shRNA sequence against MEIS1 to knockdown MEIS1 gene expression. Following RNA extraction and cDNA synthesis, mRNA expression of MEIS1 and the selected genes including TWIST1, EGF, CDX2, and KRT4 was exam-ined using relative comparative real‐time PCR.Results: Retroviral transduction caused a significant underexpression of MEIS1 in GFP‐hMEIS1 compared to control GFP cells approximately 5.5‐fold. While knock-down of MEIS1 expression caused a significant decrease in EGF and TWIST1 mRNA expression, nearly ‐8‐ and ‐12‐fold respectively, it caused a significant increase in mRNA expression of differentiation markers including KRT4 and CDX2, approxi-mately 34‐ and 1.14‐fold, correspondingly.Conclusion: MEIS1 gene silencing in KYSE‐30 cells increased expression of epithe-lial markers and decreased expression of epithelial‐mesenchymal transition (EMT) marker TWIST1. It may highlight the role of MEIS1 in differentiation process of KYSE‐30 cells. These results may confirm that MEIS1 silencing promotes differen-tiation and decreases EMT capability of ESC cell line KYSE‐30
