Abstract

Trophoblast invasion is one of the critical steps during embryo implantation. IFNG secreted during pregnancy by uterine NK cells acts as a negative regulator of invasion. IFNG in a dose dependent fashion inhibits invasion of HTR-8/SVneo trophoblastic cells. It phosphorylates STAT1 both at tyr 701 and ser 727 residues. Silencing of STAT1 significantly increases invasion (∼59%) of the cells. Based on NGS data, out of 207 genes, BATF2 expression was significantly increased after IFNG treatment. Silencing of BATF2 significantly increases the invasion of cells with (∼53%) or without (∼44%) treatment with IFNG. Expression of BATF2 and STAT1 is dependent on each other, silencing of one significantly inhibit the expression of other. Interestingly, phosphorylated JUN is also regulated by BATF2 and STAT1. Collectively, these findings showed that decrease in the invasion of HTR-8/SVneo cells after IFNG treatment is controlled by STAT1 and BATF2, which further regulates the expression of JUN.
