Semaphorin-3F (SEMA3F) is a member of semaphorins family. All the family members have a secretion signal, a 500-amino acid sema domain, and 16 conserved cysteine residues. Semaphorins not only guide axons in development, but also have major roles in immune function (classes 4, 6, and 7) and the development of bones. Class 3 semaphorins are one of the most versatile semaphorin classes, in which Sema3a is the most studied. Besides, SEMA3F is deleted or downregulated in many metastatic tumors. To test the effect of SEMA3F on inhibit cell proliferation, human lung carcinoma cells A549 were seeded into triplicate wells of 96-well plates at a density of 5000 cells/well and allowed to attach, replaced with serum-free overnight, then the medium was replaced with 2% serum standard DMEM prior to the addition of various concentrations of recombinant human SEMA3F. After incubated for 48h, cells were observed by inverted microscope and cell proliferation was measured by Cell Counting Kit-8 (CCK-8). Briefly, 10 μl of CCK-8 solution was added to each well of the plate, then the absorbance at 450nm was measured using a microplate reader after incubating the plate for 1-4 hours at 37ºC. Proliferation of A549 cells after incubation with SEMA3F for 48h observed by inverted microscope. Cell viability was assessed by CCK-8 assay after incubation with recombinant SEMA3F for 48h. And SEMA3F significantly increased cell viability of A549 cells.

This gene encodes a member of the semaphorin III family of secreted signaling proteins that are involved in axon guidance during neuronal development. The encoded protein contains an N-terminal Sema domain, an immunoglobulin loop and a C-terminal basic domain. This gene is expressed by the endothelial cells where it was found to act in an autocrine fashion to induce apoptosis, inhibit cell proliferation and survival, and function as an anti-tumorigenic agent. Alternative splicing results in multiple transcript variants encoding different isoforms. [provided by RefSeq, Jan 2016]
