Objective: To investigate the biological effect of TGF-?1 on the epithelial mesenchymal transition (EMT) KATO-III gastric cancer cell line and to focus on the relation of EMT with the expression of TICs marker CD133. Methods: KATO-III cells were cultured with TGF-?1, the morphological change was observed under phase-contrast microscopy. The matrigel invasion assay was used to investigate the invasion ability of KATO-III cells. RT-PCR and Western Blot were used to detect the expression of Snail, E-cadherin, N-cadherin, Akt, p-Akt and CD133. MACS was used to separate CD133 + and CD133 - cells from KATO- III cells and the expression of EMT related factors between those positive and negative cells was analyzed. Results: TGF-?1 induced morphological alterations from epithelial to mesenchymal cells; the invasion ability of KATO-III cells were greatly enhanced after treatment with TGF-?1, the expression of Snail and N-cadherin were increased while the expression of E-cadherin was decreased. In CD133 + subset, the expressions of Snail and N-cadherin were higher than those in CD133 - cells, while E-cadherin expression was lower than CD133 - cells. TGF-?1 induced up regulation of p-Akt and CD133 while PI3K inhibitor LY294002 could reverse that process. Conclusions: TGF-?1 can induce EMT in KATO-III cells, regulate up the expression of CD133 via PI3K/Akt pathway and enhance the invasion ability of KATO-III cells.
