Abstract: Six cell lines, that were cloned from murine C127 cells infected by bovine papillomavirus type 1 (BPV1), were found to differ in the degree of transformation in vitro and of tumorigenicity in vivo. In these cell lines the degree of tumorigenicity was inversely correlated with IL-6 induction by IL-1-beta. Whereas the parental C127 cell line produced 15-30 U/ml of IL-6 spontaneously, none of the transformed cell lines produced significant levels of IL-6 constitutively. On induction by human IL-1-beta the parental C127 cell line produced up to 300 U/ml of IL-6, whereas the fully transformed ID14 cell line failed to produce any. The less transformed cell lines produced lower yields of IL-1-beta-induced IL-6, dependent on their degrees of transformation and tumorigenicity. Gelatinase B (96 kDa), a matrix metalloproteinase inducible by IL-1-beta, was dose-dependently regulated in the parental C127 cell line and in the weakly transformed cell line Tlc. These data suggest that transformation processes by BPV1 generally impair IL-1-regulated gene transcription. This impairment seems not to be located at the IL-1-beta receptor level, since in all the cell lines studied the numbers and affinities of the IL-1-beta-binding sites were found to be comparable. This impairment seems not to be mediated by transformation-induced inactivation of the protein kinase C pathway since phorbol 12-myristate 13-acetate (PMA) induced IL-6 production equally well in all C127 cell-derived clones. It is suggested that BPV1 transformation can change the expression of host genes that might play a functional role in tumor immune surveillance and tumorigenicity in vivo.
