抄録: The incidence of distant metastases is higher in the tumors with low oxygen pressure than in those with high oxygen pressure. It is well known that hypoxia induces the transcription of various genes involved in angiogenesis and anaerobic metabolism necessary for the growth of tumor cells in vivo, suggesting that hypoxia may also induce the transcription of metastasis-associated genes. We sought to identify the metastasis-associated genes differentially expressed in tumor cells under hypoxic conditions with the use of a DNA microarray system. We found that hypoxia enhanced the expression of autocrine motility factor (AMF) mRNA in various cancer cells and also enhanced the random motility of pancreatic cancer cells. AMF inhibitors abrogated the increase of motility under hypoxic conditions. In order to explore the roles of hypoxia-inducible factor-1α (HIF-1α), we established HIF-1α-transfectants and dominant negative HIF-1α-transfectants. Transfection with HIF-1α and dominant-negative HIF-1α enhanced and suppressed the expression of AMF/PHI/NL mRNA and the random motility, respectively. These results suggest that hypoxia may promote the metastatic potential of cancer cells through the enhanced AMF/PHI/NL mRNA expression and that the disruption of the HIF-1 pathway may be an effective treatment for metastasis.
