AbstractEicosapentaenoic acid (EPA) is a polyunsaturated fatty acid (20:5 omega3) found primarily in aquatic organisms. We have shown previously that EPA inhibits the growth but is not toxic to human leukemic K-562 cells. In this study, the antiproliferative effect of EPA on the leukemic cells was further determined and its impacts on cell cycle progression and cyclin expression were investigated. EPA inhibited proliferation of K-562 cells, which was associated with accumulation of G0/G1 cells and down-regulation of cyclin E expression. Cyclin B1-expressing cells were also reduced showing that down-regulation of cyclin expression might be important in the anti-proliferation of EPA.
