Abstract

Basement membranes are frequently absent in small-cell lung cancer (SCLC). To study this phenomenon, the production of laminin by SCLC cells, both in vitro and in vivo, has been investigated and compared with the laminin production by lung carcinomas of other histotypes (non-SCLC, NSCLC). Immunoradiometric and immunoperoxidase tests, respectively,carried out on culture supernatants and cells using antilaminin rabbit antiserum, revealed that in 1 (H446) out of 8 SCLC cell lines testedand in the NSCLC line Calu3, laminin was detectable both in the culture medium and in the cytoplasm of the cells. After treatment of an SCLC-negative cell line (N592) with monensin, a molecule which inhibits protein secretion, laminin became detectable in the cytoplasm. Similar results were obtained by FACS analysis on cells permeabilized with saponin. Northern analysis indicated that the laminin B1 gene was transcribed. The level of mRNA for the B1 laminin subunit in the N592 cells was twice and 4 times higher than that found in the laminin-secreting Calu3 and H446 cell lines. The production of laminin in SCLC and NSCLC surgically resected samples using immunoperoxidase staining of cryostatic sections was also investigated. The results indicate that 85% of the NSCLC cases tested showed diffuse staining in the cytoplasm of the tumor cells and strong staining at the basement membrane level, whereas a similar staining was only found in 15% of the SCLC cases tested. The treatment of SCLC cells with differentiating agents in vitro has been shown to induce the adhesion of these cells. In fact, n-butyric acid induced the disaggregation of floating-clump cells and single-cell adhesion in the N592 line, whereas after treatment with retinoids the clumps of the N592 cells were still present, but 30% of these were found to adhere to the plate. However, no increase in the laminin production was found in the cytoplasmic or culture medium under these conditions.
