BACKGROUND: Urocortin and corticotropin-releasing factors (CRFs) and their receptors are expressed in many organs, including the central nervous system. In this study, the expression of mRNAs of urocortin 1, 2, 3, and CRF and CRF receptors 1 and 2 in malignant glioma, was examined.
MATERIALS AND METHODS: The RNAs of human and rat glioma cell lines were isolated. Transcripts in these cells were analyzed using cDNA. In addition, the effects of proliferative and cytotoxic stimulation by serum supplementation, ionizing radiation, and the antineoplastic agent temozolomide were investigated.
RESULTS: Human and rat cells transcribed urocortin. CRF receptors were detected in human glioma cells. When human KNS42 cells were exposed to stimulation, transcription was altered according to the specific condition.
CONCLUSION: Expression of mRNAs of urocortin and CRF receptors was confirmed in human glioma cell lines. Although the quantities of transcripts varied with the proliferative and cytotoxic stimulation, the overall transcription pattern was not influenced by these stimuli.
