Abstract

Gamma linolenic acid (GLA) has been recently shown to inhibit tumour-induced angiogenesis. The present study investigated the effects of GLA on the HUVEC-specific adhesion. After treatment with GLA, HUVECs decreased the amounts of Triton soluble and insoluble VE-cadherin and beta-catenin and reduced tube formation in matrix in a concentration-dependent manner. An anti-VE-cadherin antibody dissociated HUVECs' colonies and exerted similar inhibitory effects on tube formation of HUVECs. These data indicate that the VE-cadherin/catenins complex is essential for formation and maintenance of new capillaries. It is concluded, therefore, that GLA inhibits tumour-induced angiogenesis partly via the decrease in the expression of VE-cadherin and beta-catenin.
