BACKGROUND: Leukemia cells have strong proliferation and anti-apoptosis capabilities. The purpose of this study was to investigate the effect of silencing the leucine-rich alpha-2-glycoprotein1 (LRG1) gene, which was found to regulate tumor proliferation and apoptosis in acute myeloid leukemia (AML) cell lines.

MATERIAL AND METHODS: Plasmid interference technique was used to silence the LRG1 gene in the KASUMI-1 cell line. The cell counting kit-8 (CCK-8) assay was used to test the effect of transduction on cell viability. Cell cycle and apoptosis were detected by flow cytometry. Western blot and quantitative real-time polymerase chain reaction (RT-qPCR) were applied to detect the expression levels of proteins and mRNA, respectively.

RESULTS: KASUMI-1 cells with the CD34⁺CD38⁻ phenotype were sorted by flow cytometry. After transfection of the siLRG1 plasmid, the level of LRG1 expression was downregulated and cell viability was reduced. Silencing of LRG1 gene blocked KASUMI-1 cells in G0/G1 phase and promoted apoptosis. Further experiments found that LRG1 gene silencing significantly downregulated cell cycle-associated proteins and anti-apoptotic proteins, while upregulating pro-apoptotic proteins. Downregulation of LRG1 gene expression also inhibits signal transduction of the JAK-STAT pathway.

CONCLUSIONS: LRG1 gene silencing regulates the expression of cyclin and apoptosis-related proteins to reduce cell viability and promote apoptosis, probably through inhibition of the JAK-STAT pathway.
