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 further investigate and elucidate the role of ARID3B in cancer pathogenesis and progression. Therefore we used immunohistochemical (IHC) staining procedure using formalinfixed paraffin-embedded (FFPE) blocks of 63 primary breast cancer samples. We compared ARID3B IHC staining according to different cellular localizations with major prognostic factors of breast cancer. Our results show that ARID3B nuclear staining is positively correlated with ER status of the tumor and negatively correlated with tumor grade, mitotic activity and HER2 expression. This study is significant in terms of revealing an important and novel relationship between ARID3B expression and ER and HER2 expression in breast cancer. Further studies will reveal the functional significance of the correlation between ER, HER2 and ARID3B expression which may improve our current knowledge of this relatively novel but potentially interesting protein.

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 f...
APOBEC3B expression in drug resistant MCF-7 breast cancer cell lines

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...
Arid4b physically interacts with Tfap2c in mouse embryonic stem cells
Keskin, Ezgi Gul; Huang, Jialiang; Terzi Çizmecioğlu, Nihal (2021-01-01)
Precise regulation of gene expression is required for embryonic stem cell (ESC) differentiation. Transcription factor (TF) networks coordinate the balance of pluripotency and differentiation in response to extracellular and intracellular signals. Chromatin factors work alongside TFs to achieve timely regulation of gene expression for differentiation process. Our previous studies showed that a member of the Sin3a corepressor complex, Arid4b, is critical for proper mouse ESC differentiation into mesoderm and ...
Visualization of interactions between fluorescently tagged g protein α11, α12/13 subtypes and adenosine 2a, dopamine 2 or homodimer adenosine 2a/2a receptors

G-Protein-coupled receptors (GPCRs) belong to one of the largest family of cell surface receptors, which transmit extracellular signals to intracellular responses by interacting with G- proteins. The G proteins are known as molecular switches that regulates different pathways via control of secondary messengers and signaling proteins. Adenosine 2A (A2A) and Dopamine 2 (D2) receptors belong to G-Protein-coupled receptors (GPCRs) family and are located mostly in striatopallidal γ-aminobutyric acid (GABA) cont...
