α-Mangostin suppresses 12-o-tetradecanoylphorbol-13- acetate-mediated matrix metalloproteinase-9 expression in human osteosarcoma cells U2OS|

Purpose: To investigate the effect of α-mangostin on matrix metalloproteinase (MMP)-2 and MMP-9
expression in U2OS human osteosarcoma cell lines.
Methods: Cytotoxicity of α-mangostin on U2OS cells was determined by MTT assay. MMP-2 and MMP-9 activities, and mRNA expression of α-mangostin-treated U2OS cells were evaluated using gelatin
zymography and real-time polymerase chain reaction (PCR), respectively. Wound healing assay was
used to determine whether α-mangostin inhibits 12-O-tetradecanoylphorbol-13-acetate (TPA)-induced
migration of U2OS cells.
Results: U2OS viability was significantly decreased when cells were exposed to α-mangostin at 2.5 and
5 μg/mL compared to the untreated control (p < 0.05). α-Mangostin inhibited MMP-2 and MMP-9
activities stimulated by TPA at concentrations of 1.0, 1.5, and 2.0 μg/mL. MMP-9 mRNA expression of
TPA treated U2OS was down-regulated by α-mangostin. However, MMP-2 mRNA levels remained
unchanged. Would healing assay revealed that α-mangostin (2 μg/mL) significantly inhibited TPA-induced
U2OS migration compared to the control (p < 0.05).
Conclusion: This is the first study reporting the inhibitory effects of α-mangostin on TPA-mediated
MMP-9 expression and TPA-induced migration of U2OS cells. Thus, it is a potential therapeutic agent
for the treatment of osteosarcoma.
