Antisense oligonucleotide (ASODN) targeting specific gene can be capable of potently downregulating proliferation and invasion in human cancer cells. However, the underlying mechanisms are less well defined. Here the authors show that matrix metalloproteinase-7 (MMP-7) ASODN changes the ultrastructure of human A549 lung adenocarcinoma cells. Transfection of MMP-7 ASODN significantly lowered the expression of MMP-7 protein in A549 cells. Decreased microvilli, endoplasmic reticulum dilation, swelling of mitochondria, and formation of apoptotic bodies were observed by transmission electron microscope. Collectively, the findings identified the morphological mechanism that MMP-7 ASODN inhibited proliferation and invasion in A549 cells.
