Background: To investigate the mechanisms of lung adenocarcinoma cell metastasis and provide a theoretical basis for the in-depth study of lung adenocarcinoma.Methods: A549 cells are incubated with different concentrations of Furin inhibitor for indicated times. The proliferation and migration were confirmed with MTT, colony formation, wound Healing and Transwell assayes. Hochest 33342 / PI double staining was used to detect apoptosis. Cell migration and apoptosis associated proteins were analysed by enzyme-linked immunosorbent assay (ELISA) and western blot.Results: We have found that Furin inhibitor play a significant role in inhibition A549 cell growth. And we also found cell migration was inhibited significantly upon Furin inhibitor treatment.Conclusion: The proliferration and migration of A549 cell were inhibited by Furin inbitor through down-regulation the expression of migration and apoptosis related proteins. © 2014 Ma et al.; licensee BioMed Central Ltd.
