The effect of linoleic acid (LA) on growth and transformation of IEC6 intestinal cells was examined. IEC6 cells expressed mRNAs of 15-lipooxygenase (LOX15) and peroxisome proliferator-activated receptor (PPAR)gamma but not COX-2. Cell growth was suppressed by LA in a dose-dependent manner in IEC6 cells. Three-week treatment with LA provided IEC6 cells a quiescent state. LA-induced growth inhibition was abrogated by exposure to antisense S-oligodeoxynucleotides (S-ODNs) for LOX15 and/or PPARgamma. In an in vitro carcinogenesis model, IEC6 cells, which had confirmed CYP2E1 expression and activity, were continuously treated with AOM and/or LA for 40 weeks. DNA injury in AOM-treated cells was suppressed to the control level by concurrent LA treatment. Colony formation of AOM-treated cells in soft agar was suppressed by treatment with LA, which was reversed by exposure to antisense S-ODNs for LOX15 and/or PPARgamma. AOM-treated IEC6 cells formed s.c. tumors in 9 of 12 mice, whereas AOM+LA-treated cells formed no tumor. IEC6 cells showed no remarkable alteration of protein production by AOM treatment, whereas cells treated with AOM+LA showed decreased epidermal growth factor receptor (EGFR) and phospho-EGFR and increased BAX. These findings suggest that LA inhibited AOM-induced transformation of COX-2-negative IEC6 cells, which was possibly mediated with PPARgamma ligands generated by LOX15 from LA.
