The objective of this study was to investigate the effect of ATP7B antisense oligodeoxynucleotides (ASODNs) on regulating the sensitivity to cisplatin in ovarian carcinoma cell line SKOV3ip1. The ATP7B ASODNs and the corresponding sense oligodeoxynucleotide (SODN) as control were transfected into SKOV3ip1 cells by lipofectamine-2000. The changes of ATP7B were detected by reverse transcription–polymerase chain reaction, flow cytometry, and Western blotting. The survival rate of the SKOV3ip1 cells was assessed by MTT assay. Compared with nontransfected cell, the transfer of ASODN/lipofectin (LF) into SKOV3ip1 cells resulted in (1) 73.70% and 48.30% reduction of ATP7B in messenger RNA and protein, respectively, (2) an obviously decreased intracellular fluorescence intensity from 79.42 to 50.87 (P< 0.01), and (3) a decreased IC50 value for cisplatin from 126.63 to 80.90 μ mol/L (P< 0.01), while no significant changes were detected for groups treated with SODN/LF and LF only. ASODN transfection can inhibit the expression of ATP7B and increase the cisplatin sensitivity in SKOV3ip1 cells.
