Peroxisome proliferator-activated receptor gamma (PPARγ) plays an important role in the differentiation of intestinal cells and tissues. Our previous reports indicate that PPARγ is expressed at considerable levels in human colon cancer cells. This suggests that PPARγ expression may be an important factor for cell growth regulation in colon cancer. In this study, we investigated PPARγ expression in 4 human colon cancer cell lines, HT-29, LOVO, DLD-1, and Caco-2. Real-time polymerase chain reaction (PCR) and western blot analysis revealed that the relative levels of PPARγ mRNA and protein in these cells were in the order HT-29>LOVO>Caco-2>DLD-1. We also found that PPARγ overexpression promoted cell growth inhibition in PPARγ lower-expressing cell lines (Caco-2 and DLD-1), but not in higher-expressing cells (HT-29 and LOVO). We observed a correlation between the level of PPARγ expression and the cells' sensitivity for proliferation.
