The ARID, A-T Rich Interaction Domain, is a helix-turn-helix motif based domain which binds to DNA by both sequence-specific and non-sequence specific manners. The ARID protein family is found in protozoa, green algae, higher plants, fungi and metazoans, while it is not seen in archea or eubacteria. ARID domain harboring genes are involved in variety of biological processes including embryonic development, cell lineage gene regulation, chromatin modification and cell cycle control.ARID3B, a member of ARID family, is highly conserved throughout evolution. It is homologous to retinoblastoma binding proteins, mouse Bright and Drosophila dead ringer protein. ARID3B has several roles in cellular processes; histone methylation, chromatin structure modification, transcriptional activation and possibly in development. Given its known roles, ARID3B has been linked to cellular transformation and tumor progression, and was shown to be deregulated in various different cancers. A possible link between ARID3B and breast cancer was suggested by our group. We reported miR-125b, a tumor suppressor in breast cancers to target and downregulate ARID3B mRNA. In this study, we aimed to contribute to the efforts to better understand ARID3B function in breast cancers by analyzing its expression in breast cancer cell lines. Our results confirmed the immunohistochemistry (IHC) studies performed in our lab on patient samples where a positive correlation between ARID3B expression and ER positivity was detected. Interestingly, we also detected a negative correlation between ARID3B and ERBB2 positivity, also confirming the IHC studies. Future studies will be required to mechanistically confirm these observations and their significance in terms of breast carcinogenesis.

ARID3B expression in primary breast cancer samples
Oğuz Erdoğan, Ayşe Selcen; Erson Bensan, Ayşe Elif; Department of Biology (2014)
ARID3B (AT-rich interaction domain 3) is a member of the family of ARID proteins, which constitutes evolutionarily conserved transcription factors implicated in normal development, differentiation, cell cycle regulation and chromatin remodeling. In addition, ARID3B has been linked to cellular immortalization, epithelial-mesenchymal transition (EMT) and tumorigenesis. Given the emerging roles of ARID3B in tumor development, we examined its expression in primary patient-derived breast cancer samples to furthe...
Use of an intronic polyadenylation site in breast cancer
Köksal Bıçakcı, Gözd; Erson Bensan, Ayşe Elif; Department of Molecular Biology and Genetics (2020)
Alternative polyadenylation is an important mRNA processing step in which the length and/or the sequence of 3’UTR of mRNAs are altered. This change in 3’UTRs may have significant effects on mRNA stability, localization and translational efficiency. One of the APA types, called intronic polyadenylation (IPA), occurs on intronic sites rather than 3’UTRs. Recent evidence shows that almost 20% of human genes have a poly(A) site in at least one intron. In fact, some introns even may have more than one poly(A) si...
Investigation of SNX3 in colon cancer
Cingöz, Harun; Erson Bensan, Ayşe Elif; Department of Biology (2019)
Sorting Nexin 3 (SNX3) is part of the retromer complex that recycles cargo receptors back to plasma membrane or to Trans Golgi Network. WNT ligand carrier protein Wntless (WLS) is a known SNX3 cargo protein. Our earlier data suggested over expression of SNX3 in colon cancer cells. Considering its importance in receptor recycling, we hypothesized SNX3 to be a potential modulator of cancer related receptors. To begin understanding the role of SNX3, we developed RNAi models of SNX3 in SW480 colon cancer cells ...
APOBEC3B expression in drug resistant MCF-7 breast cancer cell lines
Onguru, Onder; Yalcin, Serap; Rosemblit, Cinthia; Zhang, Paul J.; Kilic, Selim; Gündüz, Ufuk (2016-04-01)
APOBEC3B belongs to a protein family of cytidine deaminases that can insert mutations in DNA and RNA as a result of their ability to deaminate cytidine to uridine. It has been shown that APOBEC3B-catalysed deamination provides a chronic source of DNA damage in breast cancers. We investigated APOBEC3B expression in four drug resistant breast cancer cell lines (Doxorubicin, Etoposide, Paclitaxel and Docetaxel resistant MCF-7 cell lines) using a novel RNA in situ hybridization technology (RNAscope) and compare...
