Abstract: Tumor vasculature plays a central role in tumor progression, making it an attractive therapeutic target. In this study, we explore the antiangiogenic potential of our melanoma gene therapy approach combining interferon beta (IFN beta) and p19Arf gene transfer. Since these proteins are modulators of tumor vasculature, we explore the impact of IFN beta and p19Arf gene transfer on murine endothelial cells (tEnd). Adenovirus-mediated gene transfer of p19Arf to tEnd cells inhibited proliferation, tube formation, migration, and led to increased expression of genes related to the p53 cell death pathway, yet IFN beta gene transfer had no significant impact on tEnd viability. Alternatively, tEnd cells were exposed to the factors generated by transduced B16 (mouse melanoma) cells using either coculture or conditioned medium. In either case, transduction of B16 cells with the IFN beta vector, whether alone or in combination with p19Arf, resulted in endothelial cell death. Strikingly, treatment of tEnd cells with recombinant IFN beta did not induce death, demonstrating that additional factors produced by B16 cells contributed to the demise of tEnd cells. In this work, we have shown that our melanoma gene therapy strategy produces desirable negative effects on endothelial cells, possibly correlating with antiangiogenic activity.
