Efficient in vivo microRNA targeting of liver metastasis
We provide proof of principle for the safety and efficacy of miRNA targeting against metastatic tumors. We tested the impact of targeting miR-182, a pro-metastatic miRNA frequently overexpressed in melanoma, the in vitro silencing of which represses invasion and induces apoptosis. Specifically, we a...
Diverse mechanisms of Wnt activation and effects of pathway inhibition on proliferation of human gastric carcinoma cells.
We characterized diverse genetic aberrations leading to constitutive Wnt signaling activation in a series of human gastric carcinoma cell lines. Downregulation of TCF signaling by stable transduction of dominant negative TCF4 (DNTCF4) resulted in inhibition of proliferation in Wnt-activated AGS tumo...
Epigenetic inactivation of T-box transcription factor 5, a novel tumor suppressor gene, is associated with colon cancer.
We identified that TBX5 was preferentially methylated in cancer using methylation-sensitive arbitrarily primed PCR. We aim to clarify the epigenetic inactivation, biological function and clinical significance of TBX5 in colon cancer. Promoter methylation was evaluated by combined bisulfite restricti...
Constitutive and chemokine-dependent internalization and recycling of CXCR7 in breast cancer cells to degrade chemokine ligands.
We investigated mechanisms for CXCR7-dependent uptake of chemokines. Breast cancer cells expressing CXCR7 accumulated chemokines CXCL12 and CXC11 present at concentrations <1 ng/ml, unlike cells expressing CXCR4. CXCR7-dependent accumulation of chemokines was reduced by inhibitors of clathrin-mediat...
The stromal gene encoding the CD274 antigen as a genetic modifier controlling survival of mice with γ-radiation-induced T-cell lymphoblastic...
We have identified a critical region on chromosome 19 that regulates survival of mice suffering from T-cell lymphoblastic lymphomas. Mapped on this region, the gene encoding the Cd274 ligand is able to trigger an inhibitory effect that modulates T-cell receptor (TCR) signalling and affects thymocyte...
T-box 2 represses NDRG1 through an EGR1-dependent mechanism to drive the proliferation of breast cancer cells
We show that TBX2 drives proliferation in breast cancer cells and this is abrogated after TBX2 small interfering RNA (siRNA) knockdown or after the expression of a dominant-negative TBX2 protein. Using microarray analysis we identified a large cohort of novel TBX2-repressed target genes including th...
Mcl-1 is critical for survival in a subgroup of non-small-cell lung cancer cell lines.
We investigate the role of B-cell lymphoma 2 (Bcl-2) family members Bcl-2, Bcl-x(L) and Mcl-1, known to regulate cell survival and death, in a panel of fourteen NSCLC cell lines. NSCLC cell lines express high levels of Mcl-1 and Bcl-x(L), but not Bcl-2. Silencing the expression of Mcl-1 with small i...
Regulation of MDM4 (MDMX) function by p76(MDM2): a new facet in the control of p53 activity.
We report that p76(MDM2) antagonizes MDM4 inhibitory function. We show that p76(MDM2) possesses intrinsic ubiquitinating and degrading activity, and through these activities controls MDM4 levels. Furthermore, the presence of p76(MDM2) decreases the association of MDM4 with p53 and p90(MDM2), and ant...
EGR1 reactivation by histone deacetylase inhibitors promotes synovial sarcoma cell death through the PTEN tumor suppressor.
We report a central role of the transcription factor, early growth response-1 (EGR1), in the regulation of HDAC inhibitor-induced apoptotic cell death in synovial sarcoma. The SS18-SSX oncoprotein, characteristic of synovial sarcoma, maintains EGR1 expression at low levels, whereas it is significant...
OTX1 expression in breast cancer is regulated by p53.
