Investigation of a mechanistic link between 15-Lipoxygenase-1 (15-LOX-1) and Metastasis Associated Protein 1 (MTA1) in human colorectal carcinoma cell lines

Banerjee, Sreeparna
Background: Metastasis Associated Protein 1 (MTA1) is a member of the nuclear remodeling and histone deacetylase (NuRD) complex that is known to repress the expression of several tumor suppressor genes. 15-lipoxygenase-1 (15-LOX-1), a member of the inflammatory eicosanoid pathway, has been shown by us and others to have an anti-tumorigenic role in colon cancer. ALOX15 was recently shown to be repressed by the NuRD complex. Previously we have reported that ectopic expression of 15-LOX-1 in colon cancer cells reduced MTA1 expression, indicating the presence of a crosstalk and a negative correlation between 15-LOX-1 and MTA1 expressions. To understand the mechanism behind this crosstalk, we have hypothesized the involvement of nuclear factor kappa B (NF-kB). MTA1 can be transcriptionally upregulated by NF-kB, while we and others have shown that 15-LOX-1 can inhibit the activity of NF-kB. We have ectopically expressed 15-LOX-1 in colon cancer cell lines and examined the expression of MTA1 and NFkB p65 subunit in a panel of 5 colon cancer cell lines and the transcriptional regulation of MTA1 by NF-kB. We have also checked whether there is a correlation between the expression of 15-LOX-1 and MTA1 by analyzing publicly available human colorectal cancer gene expression datasets. Materials and Methods: Cells were transiently transfected a 15-LOX-1 expression vector or the empty vector. Protein levels of 15-LOX-1, MTA1 and NFkB p65 were detected by Western blot analysis. NF-kB recruitment to the promoter of MTA1 was determined by chromatin immunoprecipitation and luciferase assays. Publicly available colorectal cancer dataset GSE41258 was obtained from Gene Expression Omnibus (GEO) and analyzed with GeneSpring GX 11.0. Results: HT-29 and LoVo cells transfected with the 15-LOX-1 vector showed a decrease in nuclear levels of NF-kB p65 and MTA1 expression. Recruitment of p65 onto its consensus sequence at the MTA1 promoter was reduced in 15-LOX-1 expressing cells. Moreover, the expression of MTA1 and 15-LOX-1 was negatively correlated particularly in the Stage 3 and Stage 4 colorectal cancer patients. Conclusion: 15-LOX-1 may inhibit MTA1 expression at least partly via reduced recruitment of NF-kB on to the MTA1 promoter. Based on recent reports by us and others on the role of MTA1 as a master regulator of cellular transformation in several tumor types, these data may help in understanding the regulation of MTA1 and open ways for therapeutic applications in the future.

Characterization and promoter identification of metastasis associated protein 1 in human colorectal carcinoma cell lines

Metastasis associated protein 1 (MTA1) is a member of the nuclear remodeling and histone deacetylase (NuRD) complex, which is known to repress the expression of several tumor suppressor genes and has been widely linked to tumor metastasis. 15-lipoxygenase-1 (15-LOX-1) is a lipid metabolizing enzyme that has tumor suppressive properties and is silenced by the NuRD complex in colorectal cancer (CRC). We have previously shown that reexpression of 15-LOX-1 inhibited metastasis in CRC, inhibited the inflammatory...
RanBPM (RanBP9) regulates mouse c-Kit receptor level and is essential for normal development of bone marrow progenitor cells.

c-Kit is a tyrosine kinase receptor important for gametogenesis, hematopoiesis, melanogenesis and mast cell biology. Dysregulation of c-Kit function is oncogenic and its expression in the stem cell niche of a number of tissues has underlined its relevance for regenerative medicine and hematopoietic stem cell biology. Yet, very little is known about the mechanisms that control c-Kit protein levels. Here we show that the RanBPM/RanBP9 scaffold protein binds to c-Kit and is necessary for normal c-Kit protein e...
APA isoform diversity in triple negative breast cancers

Alternative polyadenylation (APA) plays a role in gene expression regulation generally by shortening of 3'UTRs and relieving microRNA-mediated repression. Therefore, APA is gaining increased attention as a potential mechanism to activate oncogenes. Owing to high proliferative indices of triple negative breast cancers (TNBCs), we hypothesized APA to cause 3'UTR length changes in this aggressive subgroup of breast cancers. Our probe-based meta-analysis approach identified 3'UTR length alterations where the si...

Glycomics, a comprehensive study of glycans expressed in biologic systems, is emerging as a simple yet highly sensitive diagnostic tool for disease onset and progression. This study aimed to use glycomics to investigate glycan markers that would differentiate patients with gastric cancer from those with nonatrophic gastritis. Patients with duodenal ulcer were also included because they are thought to represent a biologically different response to infection with Helicobacter pylori, a bacterial infection tha...
Investigation of cellular mechanisms of Ser9Leu proopiomelanocortin (POMC) mutation in neuronal cells
Vural, Merve; Yanık, Tülin; Department of Molecular Biology and Genetics (2019)
Pro-opiomelanocortin (POMC) is a precursor protein and synthesized in many different tissues of the body. It is proteolytically cleaved into different biologically active peptides which have different physiological functions based on the tissues they are found. Some of these peptides act in the brain to reduce food intake. The main regulator of the food intake and energy homeostasis is the arcuate nucleus (ARC) within the hypothalamus, and hypothalamic neurons expressing POMC have important roles in the reg...
