[Effects of Wogonin on Apoptosis,Invasion,Migration and Wnt/β-Catenin Signaling Pathway of Gastric Cancer Cells SGC7901].

[Article in Chinese]



To explore the effects of wogonin on the apoptosis,invasion,migration and Wnt / β-catenin signaling pathway of gastric cancer cells SGC7901.


Three common gastric cancer cell lines( SGC7901,BGC-823 and MKN-45) were conventionally cultured to logarithmic growth. The cell proliferation was detected by MTT assay after treatment with different concentrations of wogonin( 0,20,50,100 and 200 μmol / L) for 24,48,72 and 96 h. The apoptosis rate, migration and invasion ability of SGC7901 cells were detected by Annexin V-FITC / PI annexin double staining flow cytometry, scratch test and transwell cell invasion assay, respectively. After treament with different concentrations of wogonin for 48 h,the protein levels of β-catenin, C-myc and Cyclin D1 were detected by Western blotting.


Wogonin within the range of 20 ~ 200 mol / L could inhibit the proliferation of SGC7901,BGC-823 and MKN-45 cells in a dose-and time-dependent manner. Compared with 0 μmol / L wogonin group,After treament with different concentrations of wogonin for 24 h and 48 h,SGC7901 cells had elevated apoptosis rate and decreased migration distance and number of penetrating membrane cell in the rest concentrations( P < 0. 05). The protein levels of β-catenin,C-myc and Cyclin D1 were lower in 20 ~ 200μmol /L wogonin groups than 0 μmol /L wogonin group except for the concentration of 20 μmol /L wogonin groups( P < 0. 05),and the effects in a dose-dependent manner.


Wogonin has the ability to inhibit the proliferation of gastric cancer cells,and can induce apoptosis and inhibit cell migration and invasion,which may be related to the inhibition of Wnt / β-catenin signaling pathway activation.
