Interferon-induced expressions of HLA class I and class II (DR, DP, DQ) antigens on human renal cell carcinoma (RCC) cell lines and bladder cancer cell lines were analyzed by flowcytometry.
Class I antigen was present on all six different RCC cell lines and the expression was enhanced with IFN-γ treatment except one cell line, Caki-2. Although no RCC cell lines expressed class II antigens without IFN-γ treatment, the treatment induced the expression of DR antigen in all cell lines except Caki-2. DP antigen was induced on KPK-1 and KPK-13 with exposure to IFN-γ. On the other hand, bladder cancer cell lines studied showed surface expression of class I antigen and enhanced expression of class I antigen with IFN-γ treatment. However, IFN-γ didn't enhance the expression of class II antigens on any of those bladder cancer cell lines.
The minimum concentrations of IFN-γ to increase the expression of class I and DR andtigens on both KPK-13 and ACHN were 4 IU/ml and 100 IU/ml, respectively. The incubation time with IFN-γ to get the maximal expression of class I and DR antigens on KPK-13 were 36 hr and 48 hr, respectively. Meanwhile, although the expression of class I antigen on RCC cell lines was enhanced by IFN-α, IFN-α could not give any effect in class II antigens. Our results demonstrate the obvious effect of IFN-γ to enhance the expression of not only HLA class I antigen but also class II antigens on RCC cell lines.
