Production of heat shock protein 70 (HSP70/HSPA) is induced by a wide range of cellular stress conditions, such as cancer and hypoxia. This study investigated the level of HSPA gene expression in human cell lines exposed to hypoxic conditions. Three human glioma cell lines were selected for this study, each representing different types of glioma (astrocytoma, oligodendroglioma and glioblastoma), with a normal human astrocyte cell line used as a control. HSPA RNA transcripts and proteins were examined in these samples using qRT-PCR, immunofluorescence and flow cytometry techniques. The average HSPA mRNA copy numbers detected in three glioma cell lines were approximately sixfold higher than in a normal astrocyte cell line. The expression of HSPA was induced in normal cell lines immediately after exposure to hypoxia with 33% of cells exhibiting expression. However, the effects of hypoxia on gene expression were marginal in glioma cells, due to the already increased levels of HSPA with both pre- and post-hypoxia samples showing expression in approximately 90% of cells. These results show that whilst the stress caused by both cancer and hypoxia induce HSPA expression the underlying imprint of tumour genesis leads to sustained expression.
