In this study, the response of choriocarcinoma cells (JAR) to tumor necrosis factor-α (TNF-α) mediated oxidative stress was searched with the intention of offering new approaches for placental pathologies.Cells were cultured in DMEM containing 10% FBS in a humidified incubator at 37?C with 5% CO2. Time and concentration depended preliminary experiments were performed. The effects of TNF-α (100ng) on NF-κB pathway, cell proliferation and apoptotic cell death and the effect of pentoxifylline (PTX) (10 mM) on TNF-α mediated NF-κB expression in choriocarcinoma cells were investigated by immunocytochemical tecniques. Cell proliferation rate was detected by PCNA, on the other hand determination of apoptotic cells was performed by anti-caspase-8. Staining intensities were semi-quantitatively evaluated by HSCORE.As a result of immunocytochemical staining; we determined that NF-κB expression was significantly changed at both nuclear and cytoplasmic levels according to the application time of TNF-α. TNF-α induced nuclear NF-κB levels was significantly lowered in choriocarcinoma cells when TNF-α was combined with PTX. In only PTX applied group, there was no nuclear NF-κB immunoreactivity in these cells.According to our results, PTX may be a potent therapeutic agent targeting NF-κB related signalling pathways.
