Prostate carcinoma cell lines DU-145 and PC-3 express both platelet derived growth factor (PDGF)-1 and PDGF-2/sis genes. Concomitantly, these cells synthesize and secrete PDGF-like proteins, as judged by indirect immunofluorescence and by direct immunoprecipitation with specific PDGF antiserum. Conditioned media derived from DU-145 and PC-3 cells stimulated the incorporation of [3H]thymidine by 3T3 cells and competed with 125I-labeled PDGF for its binding to cell surface receptors of 3T3 cells. The biological activity was stable to heating at 100 degrees C for 10 min, sensitive to reducing agents, and neutralized by the IgG fraction of PDGF antiserum, properties similar to those of authentic PDGF. Both DU-145 and PC-3 cell lines appear to lack receptors for PDGF as indicated by their inability to mitogenically respond to PDGF and receptor binding of 125I-labeled PDGF. Production of PDGF-like proteins by human prostate carcinoma cells may play an important role in a paracrine mode in the organization of the extracellular matrix of the malignant tissue.
