Abstract

Constitutive activation of nuclear factor-κB (NF-κB) stimulates cell proliferation and metastasis, and inhibits apoptosis in breast cancer. Transforming growth factor-β (TGF-β) signaling pathway is deregulated in breast cancer progression and metastasis. The aim of the present study was to investigate the inhibitory effects of the two small leucine rich proteoglycans fibromodulin (Fmod) and decorin (Dcn), overexpressed using adenovirus gene transfer, on NF-κB-activity and TGF-β1-expression in the highly metastatic 4T1 breast cancer cell line. The results demonstrate that Fmod and Dcn overexpression is associated with NF-κB and TGF-β1 downregulation, and that Fmod promotes this effect more effectively compared with Dcn.
