    In clinic, we examined the expression of protein kinase C (PKC)-α and Dicer in the samples of bladder cancer patients, and found that the two proteins have a line correlation. Our study confirmed this correlation existing by clearing the decreasing expression of Dicer after the PKC-α knockdown. Treatment of bladder cancer cell lines (T24, 5637) with the PKC-α or Dicer knockdown and the PKC inhibitors (Calphostin C and Gö 6976) can promote the apoptosis. Inhibition of PKC can increase the activities of caspase-3 and PARP, however, decrease the expression of Dicer. And knockdown of the PKC-α or Dicer can also activate the caspase-3 or the PARP. Considering the reduction of PKC-α can induce the Dicer down-regulation, we make the conclusion that the reduction of PKC-α can promote the apoptosis via the down-regulation of Dicer in bladder cancer. © 2015 The Authors.
