Background/Aims: Hedgehog (Hh) pathway has been considered as a therapy target for various cancer entities. However, its mechanism in colorectal cancer is still unclear. Methodology: We analyzed the expression of Hh pathway members in colorectal adenomas and cancer cell lines and then studied its relationship with survival of colorectal cancer cells through inhibiting Hh pathway by cyclopamine. Moreover, we studied the regulation of Gli1 on insulin-like growth factor binding protein 6 (IGFBP6) and B-cell CLL/lymphoma 2 (Bcl-2) genes at the level of transcription by XChIP and cyclopamine inhibition assay. Results: Sonic hedgehog (Shh), Smoothened (Smo), patched (Ptch) and Gli1 genes mRNA were expressed in SW116 cells. Gli1 bound to promoter regions of Bcl-2 and IGFBP6 genes, cyclopamine inhibited proliferation and induced apoptosis through inhibiting the transcriptions of IGFBP6 (p=0.003), proliferating cell nuclear antigen (PCNA) (p=0.014) and Bcl-2 (p=0.013), and increasing that of BCL2-associated X protein (Bax) and BCL2-antagonist/killer 1 (Bak1) (p=0.003 and 0.001, respectively) in SW116 cells. Conclusions: Hh pathway is aberrant activation in part colorectal carcinomas cell lines and its inhibitor may be an effectual agent for colorectal cancer chemoprevention. It may be one of the mechanisms that Gli1 maintained cell survival by binding the promoter regions and facilitating transcription of IGFBP6 and Bcl-2 genes.
