PURPOSE: To determine a new method for radiosensitization to treat pulmonary adenocarcinoma, we down-regulated Pokemon in pulmonary adenocarcinoma cells (A549).
METHODS: Three pairs of siRNA-knockdown Pokemon fragments from a eukaryotic expression vector, liposome-mediated transfection pulmonary adenocarcinoma cell line, A549 cells, underwent RT-PCR and western blotting before and after transfection Pokemon mRNA and protein expression screening, and silencing of best recombinant plasmid transfected A549 cells were observed in the A549 cells’ Pokemon gene expression by MTT cell proliferation assay, flow cytometry and apoptosis clonogenic assay, as well as in shRNA plasmid-transfected cells after combined radiation treatment and radiosensitization.
