The involvement of Raf-1 kinase in the insulin signal transduction chain leading to control of cell proliferation was studied in the H4IIE rat hepatoma cell line by inhibiting expression of the kinase with antisense oligodeoxyribonucleotide directed against Raf-1 mRNA. Antisense oligonucleotide was found to reduce (at 2 microM) or completely block (at 15 microM) the stimulation by insulin of DNA synthesis, measured as thymidine incorporation. The residual DNA synthesis seen in the absence of insulin stimulation was also inhibited by the Raf-1 kinase antisense oligonucleotide.
