OVCA1, a tumor suppressor gene, is deleted or lower expressed in about 80% of ovarian cancer. Over expression of OVCA1 in human ovarian cancer A2780 cells inhibits cell proliferation and arrests cells in G1 stage. However, the fact that the molecular mechanism of OVCA1 inhibits cell growth is presently elusive. Here we investigated the potential signaling pathway induced by over-expression of OVCA1. Our results show that over-expression of human OVCA1 in ovarian cancer cells A2780 leads to down-regulation of cyclin D1, and up-regulation of p16, but no effect on the expression of NF-κB. It indicates that OVCA1 could inhibit the proliferation of ovarian cancer cell A2780 by p16/cyclin D1 pathway, but not by NF-κB.
