Abstract: Objective: To investigate the effects of RPA1 silencing on the invasion, migration and cell cycle of human nasopharyngeal carcinoma CNE-2R cells. Methods: shRNA technology was used to construct CNE-2R cell lines with RPA1 low-expression, which were verified by RT-PCR and Western blotting. The following assays were performed using the three 3 groups: control group(CNE-2),negative control group(NC-shRNA) and RPA1 down-regulation group(RPA1-shRNA). The effects of RPA silence on the proliferation, invasion, migration, and cell cycle of CNE-2R cells were detected using Cell Counting Kit-8, clone formation experiment, Transwell, scratch test and flow cytometry, respectively. The expressions of Chk2, p-Chk2, Cdc 25c and p-cdc25c were tested by Western blot assay. Results: The expressions of RPA1 mRNA and protein in the RPA1-shRNA group were lower than those in the CNE-2 and NC-shRNA groups significantly (P<0.01 and 0.05). Compared with CNE-2 and NC-shRNA groups, the abilities of proliferation, invasion and migration of RPA1-shRNA group were decreased and the cell cycle in the RPA1-shRNA group was blocked in the G2/M phase (P<0.01). The expressions of Chk2 and Cdc25c in RPA1-shRNA group cells were lower than those in CNE-2R and NC-shRNA group cells (P<0.05), while the expressions of p-Chk2 and p-cdc25c were higher than those in the other groups (P<0.05). Conclusion: After RPA1 silenced, the proliferation and migration of radio resistant human nasopharyngeal carcinoma CNE-2R cells was inhibited, resulting in cell cycle arrested in the G2/M phase.

Key words: RPA1, nasopharyngeal carcinoma, invasion, migration, cell cycle
