[Clinical significance of S100A6 and Notch1 in multiple myeloma patients].

Abstract

Objective: To investigate the expression levels of S100A6, Notch1 in multiple myeloma (MM) patients and its clinical significance. Mathods: The expression levels of S100A6, Notch1 in 28 MM cases and 20 healthy controls were determined by real time quantitative PCR (RQ-PCR) , and their relationships with clinical features and outcomes were analyzed. Immunohistochemical was used to analysis the levels of S100A6 and Notch1 in bone marrow biopsy samples and intramedullary metastases soft tissues. RQ-PCR and Western blot were used to test the changes of Notch1 mRNA and Notch1 protein in U266 MM cells after S100A6 silenced by siRNA. Results: ①The expression levels of S100A6, Notch1 in primary MM patients was 2.19±1.25, 2.98±0.64, significantly higher than those in controls (0.71±0.20, 0.58±0.39, P<0.05) and patients in platform status (0.85±0.26, 0.72±0.40, P<0.05) . 8 cases with intramedullary metastasis had significantly higher levels of S100A6 (3.36±1.23) and Notch1 (5.71±3.96) , as compared to those without extra medullary metastases. ②S100A6 expression was positive correlation with Notch1 (r=0.505, P=0.007) . ③S100A6 and Notch1 proteins were positive in plasma cells of bone marrow biopsy samples and intramedullary metastases soft tissues. ④The Notch1 mRNA and Notch1 expression decreased significantly after 48 hours treatment by S100A6 siRNA in U266 cells. Conclusion: S100A6 and Notch1 were closely associated with MM progress and intramedullary metastasis. They have significant correlation and might be as two prognostic molecular markers in MM.
