Abstract: Abstract: Pro-inflammatory cytokines and chemokines are involved in promoting tumorigenesis by facilitating tumor proliferation and metastasis. The serum levels of interleukin (IL)-6, IL-1β, and tumor necrosis factor-alpha (TNF-α) are significantly elevated in patients with renal cell carcinoma (RCC). However, the mechanisms of how these cytokines participate in the progression of RCC remains unknown. In the present study, we investigated the effects of tumor-derived cytokines on invasion and the epithelial-mesenchymal transition (EMT) of RCC cells. We found that expression of IL-1β, IL-6, TNF-α, hypoxia-inducible factor-alpha (HIF-1α), and matrix metalloproteinase-2 (MMP2) were significantly elevated in high malignancy A498 cells compared to low malignancy 786-O cells. The invasion ability of A498 was three-fold higher than that of 786-O cells. The invasiveness of 786-O cells was markedly enhanced by adding conditioned medium derived from A498 cells. This phenomenon was significantly inhibited by immunodepletion of TNF-α followed by MMP2, IL-6, or IL-1β from A498 conditioned medium. Synergistic inhibition was also noted after simultaneous immunodepletion of TNF-α, IL-1β, and IL-6. RCC cell lines with higher malignancy produced more TNF-α, which was correlated with their stronger invasive ability. The invasiveness of 786-O cells was significantly promoted by TNF-α in a dose-dependent manner. Moreover, TNF-α induced the EMT of 786-O cells by repressing E-cadherin, promoting vimentin expression, and activating MMP9 activity. Our findings demonstrate that pro-inflammatory cytokines, especially TNF-α, can enhance invasion and the EMT of renal cancer cells, which provides a therapeutic target to prevent and treat advanced RCC.
