BACKGROUND: Increased expression of high-mobility group box 1 (HMGB1) has been observed in many tumor types, but the role of HMGB1 in hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC) is unknown. AIMS: To examine the effects of RNA interference HMGB1 on the bioactivity of HCC cell line HCCLM3. METHODS: We synthesized three specific small interfering RNAs of HMGB1 (HMGB1-siRNAs) and transfected these into HCCLM3 cells by use of Lipofectamine 2000. RT-PCR and Western blot were performed to determine the effects of HMGB1-siRNAs on HMGB1 expression and to detect NF-κB/p65 and VEGF-C expression after transfection of HMGB1-siRNAs into HCCLM3. In vitro proliferation was assessed by MTT assay. Migration and invasive ability were determined by use of the Transwell assay. Apoptosis was demonstrated by flow cytometry. RESULTS: RT-PCR and Western blotting showed that all three specific HMGB1-siRNAs significantly inhibited HMGB1 expression, with inhibition by HMGB1-siRNA-1 being highest (70-80%). MTT assay demonstrated that the growth of cells transfected with HMGB1-siRNA-1 was significantly lower than that of control cells (P < 0.01). The Transwell assay showed that cell migration and invasion were significantly inhibited in HMGB1 knockdown cells compared with control cells (P < 0.01). FCM revealed that apoptosis was significantly increased in HMGB1-siRNA-1-transfected cells compared with control cells (P < 0.01). Expression of NF-κB/p65 and VEGF-C was inhibited in HCCLM3 cells transfected with HMGB1-siRNA-1 compared with control cells (P < 0.01). CONCLUSION: Downregulation of HMGB1 could obviously inhibit the growth of HCCLM3 cells, and their migration and invasion ability. HMGB1 may serve as a potential target for treatment of HCC.
