Model of Human Tongue Squamous Cell Lines Stably Transfected with Human Papillomavirus (HPV)16 E6 and E7 Genes and Biological Characteristic Analysis
BioMed Research International
Background. Human tongue squamous cell carcinoma (TSCC) is the most common oral cancer with the highest human papillomavirus (HPV) infection rate in oral cancer. The purpose of this study was to research the correlation between HPV and TSCC. Method. Plasmid pEGFP/HPV16 E6E7 and plasmid pEGFP/no HPV16 E6E7 were constructed. TSCC cell lines SCC9 and SCC15 were infected by liposome transfection and would be highly selected by antibiotic. Fluorescence imaging, PCR, and Western blot were used to
... ot were used to detect the expression of HPV16 E6E7 in cells. The biological characteristics were detected by CCK-8, wound healing assay, qRT-PCR, and Western blot. Result. TSCC cell lines transfected with HPV16 E6E7 gene were successfully established and identified. And the proliferation and migration ability of the TSCC cell lines infected with HPV16 E6E7 gene were significantly stronger than that of the blank group. Conclusion. TSCC cell lines infected with HPV16 E6E7 with significantly higher ability of proliferation and migration were more malignant than those not infected with HPV16 E6E7.
