BACKGROUND: DNA hypermethylation is proved to be involved in carcinogenesis. Because chronic pancreatitis (CP) is a consistent risk factor for pancreatic cancer, the possible alteration and tumor contribute effects of hypermethylated in cancer-1 (HIC1) promoter methylation in CP was investigated. METHODS: Methylation of HIC1 promoter HIC1 and SIRT1 expression were detected in human normal pancreas (NP), CP and pancreatic adenocarcinoma tissues. Furthermore, HIC1/SIRT1 pathway was regulated by demethylating reagent and exogenous expression in PANC-1, BxPC-3 and AsPC-1 cell lines, cell biology behavior including proliferation, apoptosis, cell cycle and senescence were detected. RESULTS: The methylation of HIC1 promoter was demonstrated in 70.3 % pancreatic carcinoma (45 of 64), 47.5 % CP (19 of 40) and 11.4 % NP tissues (4 of 35). Moreover, hypermethylation of HIC1 promoter and deregulation of HIC1 expression in pancreatic cancer were significantly related to high-stage tumor and older patient age. HIC1 promoter hypermethylation was also observed in pancreatic cancer cell lines including PANC-1, BxPC-3 and AsPC-1. Restoration of HIC1 function with 5-aza-dC treatment or pCDNA3FlagHIC1 plasmid transfection leaded to a reduction in cell proliferation, obvious cell senescence, cell cycle arrest and apoptosis, accompanied with acetylated p53 and p21(WAF1 of Cip1) upregulation. While after further transfected with pCDNA3FlagSIRT1 plasmid, the growth inhibition, senescence and cycle arrest without apoptosis were partially rescued with deregulated acetylated p53 and p21(WAF1 of Cip1). CONCLUSIONS: Our results indicate that hypermethylation of HIC1 promoter in CP may contribute to the aberrant expression of HIC1/SIRT1 pathway and then involve in the pancreatic carcinogenesis.
