Summary of "Quercetin suppresses the proliferation and metastasis of metastatic osteosarcoma cells by inhibiting parathyroid hormone receptor 1."

Osteosarcoma is an aggressive malignant neoplasm and cancerous bone tumor. Quercetin is a well-known flavonoid abundant in vegetables, fruits, grains, leaves, and red onions. In the present study, we evaluated the effects of quercetin-induced inhibition of parathyroid hormone receptor 1 (PTHR1) on proliferation, migration, and invasion in U2OS and Saos cells. Following incubation with quercetin (20, 40, 60, 80, or 100 μM) for 48 h, the cell viability of U2OS and Saos cells were significantly reduced in a dose-dependent manner. Additionally, there were significant decreases in cell adhesion, invasion, and migration as well as reduced cell viability at higher concentrations of quercetin. Furthermore, the mRNA expression levels of matrix metalloproteinases (MMP)-2 and -9 were attenuated, whereas the mRNA expression levels of tissue inhibitors of metalloproteinases (TIMP)-1 and -2 were elevated. Quercetin treatment also significantly reduced the mRNA expression levels of PTHR1 by 0.27-, and 0.55-fold at 80, and 100 μM, respectively, whereas 0.19 and 0.41 folds in Saos cells. PTHR1 protein expression in U2OS cells was reduced by 0.19-, and 0.43-fold at 80, and 100 μM of quercetin, respectively (P < 0.05), whereas 0.17 and 0.35 folds in Saos-2 cells. Immunofluorescence analyses revealed reduced expression of PTHR1 following treatment with quercetin. PTHR1 expression in U2OS cells was reduced by 0.18-, and 0.41-fold at 80, and 100 μM, respectively, whereas 0.15 and 0.38 folds in Saos cells. The knockdown of PTHR1enhanced quercetin-inhibited proliferation and invasion. Taken together, the present findings indicate that quercetin reduced human metastatic osteosarcoma cell invasion, adhesion, proliferation, and migration by inhibiting PTHR1.

Metastatic breast cancer characterized by EDEMA and ERYTHEMA of the affected breast due to LYMPHATIC METASTASIS and eventual obstruction of LYMPHATIC VESSELS by the cancer cells.

An antiviral antibiotic produced by Cephalosporium aphidicola and other fungi. It inhibits the growth of eukaryotic cells and certain animal viruses by selectively inhibiting the cellular replication of DNA polymerase II or the viral-induced DNA polymerases. The drug may be useful for controlling excessive cell proliferation in patients with cancer, psoriasis or other dermatitis with little or no adverse effect upon non-multiplying cells.

Nuclear phosphoprotein encoded by the p53 gene (GENES, P53) whose normal function is to control CELL PROLIFERATION and APOPTOSIS. A mutant or absent p53 protein has been found in LEUKEMIA; OSTEOSARCOMA; LUNG CANCER; and COLORECTAL CANCER.

A GPI-linked cell adhesion protein originally identified as a heat stable antigen in mice. It mediates antigen-dependent activation and proliferation of B-CELLS. It is also involved in METASTASIS and is highly expressed in many NEOPLASMS.

Cell surface receptors that bind the hypothalamic hormones regulating pituitary cell differentiation, proliferation, and hormone synthesis and release, including the pituitary-releasing and release-inhibiting hormones. The pituitary hormone-regulating hormones are also released by cells other than hypothalamic neurons, and their receptors also occur on non-pituitary cells, especially brain neurons, where their role is less well understood. Receptors for dopamine, which is a prolactin release-inhibiting hormone as well as a common neurotransmitter, are not included here.
