The basement membrane collagen IV-degrading matrix metalloproteinases -2 and -9 (MMPs) are most often linked to the malignant phenotype of tumor cells by playing a critical role in invasion, metastasis, angiogenesis, and vasculogenesis. We verified the activity of these two MMPs in the sera of patients affected by brain tumors (20 gliomas, 28 meningiomas and 20 metastasis) by zymography. The sera of 25 healthy volunteers with no concomitant illnesses were used for controls. Zymography showed four dominant gelatinolytic bands of 240, 130, 92 (MMP-9) and 72 (MMP-2) kDa...

Brain-invasive growth of a subset of meningiomas is associated with less favorable prognosis. The molecular mechanisms causing invasiveness are only partially understood, however, the expression of matrix metalloproteinases (MMPs) has been identified as a contributing factor. We have previously found that loss of density enhanced phosphatase-1 (DEP-1, also designated PTPRJ), a transmembrane protein-tyrosine phosphatase, promotes meningioma cell motility and invasive growth in an orthotopic xenotransplantation model...

PURPOSE: Sublethal doses of photon irradiation (IR) are suspected to increase tumor cell migration and support locoregional recurrence of disease, which has already been shown in other cell lines. This manuscript describes the effect of photon and carbon-ion IR on WHO class I meningioma cell migration and provides an approach to the underlying cellular mechanisms. MATERIALS AND METHODS: Meningioma cells were gained operatively at the university hospital in Homburg/Saar, Germany...

AIM: The matrix metalloproteinase (MMP) enzyme family has been shown to be active in tumorigenesis and tumor progression. In this study, we analyzed the prevalence of a guanine insertion in the MMP-1 gene promoter region in meningiomas and its effect on invasion and prognosis. MATERIAL AND METHODS: The study was performed with 33 meningioma patients. We also included 33 healthy patients in the study as a control group. The promoter area was amplified by polymerase chain reaction (PCR) following DNA isolation...

Matrix metalloproteinases (MMPs) are proteolytic enzymes involved with extracellular matrix degradation. They have been considered to be important for tumor growth and development of peritumoral edema. This retrospective study investigated the expression of MMP subtypes 9 and 2 in canine intracranial meningiomas and their association with peritumoral edema. Twenty-two cases of histologically confirmed grade I meningiomas based on human World Health Organization classification were enrolled. Tumor volume and peritumoral edema were measured by magnetic resonance imaging volumetry...

OBJECTIVE: SPARC is a key determinant of invasion and metastasis in some tumors, such as gliomas, melanomas and prostate tumors. SPARC can change the composition and structure of the matrix and promote angiogenesis; these effects are closely related to clinical stage and the prognosis of tumors such as meningiomas. However, little is known about the expression of SPARC in intracranial aneurysms. The goal of this study was to establish the role of SPARC in human intracranial aneurysms...

Overexpression of transforming growth factor β1 (TGF-β1) has been linked to immune suppression, tumor angiogenesis, tumor cell migration, tumor cell survival, and tumor cell invasion in many cancers. In the present study, we found abundant expression of TGF-β1 in the microenvironment of four different pathological types of meningioma tumors. TGF-β1 induced invasion in malignant meningioma cells with an associated upregulation of urokinase-type plasminogen activator (uPA), uPAR, cathepsin B, and MMP-9, and this increase in proliferation was coupled with the expression of anti-apoptotic and pro-survival signaling molecules...

OBJECT: Although bone invasion and hyperostosis are common phenomena in patients with intracranial meningiomas, the basic pathomechanism is not fully understood. Based on an immunohistochemical study of surgically resected samples with hyperostosis, we postulate a possible mechanism of hyperostosis in patients with intracranial meningiomas. MATERIALS AND METHODS: Forty-six meningiomas were evaluated in this study. Twenty-six meningiomas associated with hyperostosis specimens served as the study group, and 20 meningiomas without any bony changes served as controls...

OBJECTIVE: Abnormalities of the bone are frequently encountered in patients with meningioma, and hyperostosis and endostosis are common bone alterations in these tumors. Extensive bony destruction is very unusual in patients with meningioma. We report six cases of intracranial meningioma associated with an osteolytic lesion of the skull and discuss the underlying mechanisms that may be responsible for bone destruction in patients with meningioma. METHODS: Six patients were classified into three groups, severe, moderate and mild, according to the degree of osteolytic bony destruction...

Fifty-one meningiomas obtained from 28 dogs and 23 cats were selected for this study to investigate the immunohistochemical expression of matrix metalloproteinase (MMP)-2 and MMP-9 and to compare it to the reverse transcriptase subunit of human-telomerase, progesterone receptor expression, and the proliferative index of the tumors, expressed by Ki67 and proliferating cellular nuclear antigen. Paraffin-embedded tumor tissue was obtained from biopsy samples (28 cases) and at necropsy (23 cases). The most common histotype was malignant in dogs (12/28) and transitional in cats (12/23)...

Meningioma usually grows and expands into the brain, but invasion into the brain parenchyma is relatively rare. Meningioma arises from arachnoid cap cells, and infiltration into dura mater is the main growth pattern of meningiomas. However, little is known about the mechanism of meningioma invasion into the dura mater. In this study, seven specimens, including dural attachments, from seven cases of meningioma were used for immunohistochemical analysis. Matrix metalloproteinase (MMP)-1, -2, -9, urokinase-type plasminogen activator (uPA), vascular endothelial growth factors (VEGF), flt-1, E-cadherin, estrogen receptor (EgR), progesterone receptor (PgR), and aquaporin (AQP)-1, -4 were used as primary antibodies...

We analyzed the relation between meningioma and the brain in 50 surgical cases. So-called capsule formation was seen in 20 meningiomas, of which 13 were categorized as thin and 7 as thick. In 21 meningiomas the arachnoid membrane was intact, and 10 meningiomas had no underlying arachnoid membrane. The other 19 tumors showed partial disruption of the arachnoid membrane. The degree of arachnoid disruption correlated with the tumor grade, perifocal edema, pial blood supply on angiography, and tumor size. The existence of brain invasion correlated with the tumor grade and partially with tumor size...

BACKGROUND: The transcription factor avian erythroblastosis virus E26 (V-Ets) oncogene homolog 1 (Ets-1) is involved in tumor development and progression through the transcriptional regulation of several matrix-degrading enzyme systems, including matrix metalloproteinases (MMPs). It has been demonstrated that the MMPs are expressed strongly in high-grade meningiomas. To determine the biologic significance of Ets-1 in the progression of benign meningiomas, the authors investigated the expressions of Ets-1 and its target genes MMP-2 and MMP-9 in primary and recurrent, Grade 1 meningiomas...

We studied the expression of matrix metalloproteinases (MMP) and tissue inhibitors of matrix metalloproteinase (TIMP) in microcystic meningiomas to investigate a possible underlying mechanism for the development of microcysts and of peritumoral edema, which are frequent characteristics of this rare subtype. Between October 1995 and June 2004, 10 of 19 patients who had histologically confirmed pure microcystic meningiomas were enrolled in the study. Six patients with meningothelial meningiomas, three with atypical meningiomas, and one with a transitional meningioma were included as a control group...

AIMS: Matrix metalloproteinases (MMPs) are a pivotal enzyme system involved in extracellular matrix (ECM) degradation and are considered to be important in the development and invasion of human tumours. Little is known about the regulation of MMPs in meningioma development and prognosis. The transcription factor Ets-1 is the main regulator of several MMPs, including MMP-2 and -9. The aim of this study was to determine the relationship between the expression of Ets-1, MMP-2 and -9 and the malignant potential of meningiomas...

Although the majority of meningiomas, commonly benign tumors (WHO I), are amenable to surgical resection, a percentage of up to 3% will recur as higher-grade meningiomas with potential brain invasion. Our study aims at the in situ identification of proteolytic, extracellular matrix-degrading enzymes in a broad spectrum of meningiomas. We examined 80 meningiomas (50 classic meningiomas WHO I, 19 meningiomas WHO II, including atypical, chordoid, and clear cell types, as well as 11 anaplastic meningiomas WHO III) for the immunohistochemical expression patterns of cathepsin D and metalloproteinases MMP-2 and MMP-9...

BACKGROUND: We studied whether or not the expressions of MMP-2 and MMP-9 were correlated with the proliferative potential or recurrence of intracranial meningiomas. METHODS: The expressions of MMP-2 and MMP-9 of 56 meningioma tissues were examined and scored by immunohistochemistry (IHC). Expressions of the mRNA of each MMP were also examined by reverse transcriptase polymerase chain reaction (RT-PCR) assay in 15 cases. The relationships between IHC score and each of age, sex, tumor location, histology, MIB-1 labeling index (LI), and recurrence or regrowth rate were studied...

Meningiomas have mesenchymal differentiation and studies have confirmed that meningiomas express intermediate filaments of both mesenchymal and epithelial types including vimentin and keratin. To further characterize their mesenchymal properties, particularly the role of factors requiring adhesion, extracellular matrix degradation, and migration, meningiomas were examined for a panel of extracellular matrix markers. Immunoreactivity to the matrix metalloproteinases, MMP-2 and MMP-9, and their tissue inhibitor, TIMP-1, and to an adhesion factor, galectin-3 were found in the majority of cases...

Matrix metalloproteinases (MMPs) belong to a super family of endopeptidases which have been implicated as crucial mediators of angiogenesis and tumour invasion in brain tumours. This study was undertaken in an attempt to establish the relationship between 2 specific MMPs and the main classical subtypes of meningioma. We examined the expression of MMP-2 and -9 (gelatinase-A and -B respectively), by gelatin zymography, in a series of 18 cell cultures derived from human meningiomas of a range of histological subtypes and grades of malignancy, including 7 meningothelial, 6 transitional, 2 fibroblastic and 3 atypical meningiomas...
