OBJECTIVE: To investigate the correlation between expressions of MMP-2 and NF-κ B in the intracranial aneurysm wall, and explore their role in the mechanism of the occurrence, growth and rupture of intracranial aneurysms.
METHODS: RT-PCR was used to detect the expression of MMP-2 and NF-κ B mRNA of 30 cases of intracranial aneurysm tissue and 10 cases of normal intracranial arterial tissue; Immunohistochemical method was used to detect the expression of MMP-2 and NF-κ B protein.
RESULTS: The semi-quantitative analysis of MMP-2 and NF-κ B in aneurysms tissues and normal tissues were statistically significant different from each other (P<0 05). Immunohistochemical staining results showed NF-κ B was expressed in different layers. The expression of them were positive in intimal and medial, and the expression sites were located in the nucleus. MMP-2 were expressed in different layers of the aneurysm wall, and the expressions were positive in media and extima. The MMP-2 and NF- κ B-positive expression of aneurysm wall were significantly higher than in normal cerebral arteries (P <0.05). MMP-2 and NF-κ B mRNA expression showed positive correlation in the aneurysm wall tissue (r = 0.689, P = 0.005).
CONCLUSIONS: The expressions of MMP-2 and NF-κ B in the intracranial aneurysm wall tissue were significantly higher than in the normal intracranial arterial tissues. They have a synergistic effect on the formation of intracranial aneurysms.
