Abstract: Objective · To investigate the effects of bromodomain-containing protein 4 (BRD4) inhibitor I-BET762 on histone crotonylation, proliferation and migration of prostate cancer cells. Methods · Three human prostate cancer cell lines, i.e., LNCaP, C4-2B and PC-3, were respectively treated with I-BET762 of half maximal inhibitory concentration. Histone crotonylation modification and acetylase were detectedWestern blotting. CCK-8, transwell migration test and scratch test were used to detect the effects of I-BET762 on proliferation and migration of LNCaP, C4-2B and PC-3 cells. Results · I-BET762 inhibited the of histone acetylase P300 and GCN5, and reduced the histone crotonylation modification. Transwell migration test and scratch test showed that I-BET762 could inhibit the migration of prostate cancer cell lines LNCaP, C4-2B and PC-3 (all P<0.01); CCK-8 test showed that the proliferation of three prostate cancer cell lines was inhibitedI-BET762. Conclusion · In prostate cancer cells, I-BET762 can reduce the histone crotonylation and also inhibit cell proliferation and migration.
