Zearalenone (ZEA) was a mycotoxin biosynthesized by a variety of Fusarium fungi via a polypeptide pathway. ZEA has significant toxic reaction on immune cells. Thymic epithelial cells (TECs) as a crucial constituent of thymic stroma can provide unique microenvironment for thymocyte maturation, but the mechanism of ZEA affecting the TECs is poorly understood. The basic data about gene expression differences for the ZEA on thymic epithelial cell line 1 (MTEC1) will help us to elucidate this mechanism. Here, cell viability and proliferation assay and transcriptome sequencing on MTEC1 treated with ZEA were performed. 4188 differentially expressed genes (DEGs) between ZEA treated and control groups were identified, confirmed and analyzed. Our results showed that 10–50μg/ml ZEA significantly inhibited MTEC1 proliferation and arrested cell cycle at G2/M phase. Gene ontology and KEGG pathway analysis revealed that Chemokine, JAK-STAT and Toll-like receptor signaling pathway, were involved in the cell cycle pathway. 16 key genes involved in the cell cycle processes were validated and the results suggested that Mitotic catastrophe (MC) may take part in ZEA inhibition of METC1 cell proliferation. These data highlighted the importance of cell cycle pathway in MTEC1 treated with ZEA, and will contribute to get the molecular mechanisms of ZEA inhibition of MTEC1 cell proliferation.
