Oncogenic USP22 supports gastric cancer growth and metastasis by activating c-Myc/NAMPT/SIRT1-dependent FOXO1 and YAP signaling.

In this study, we investigated the role of ubiquitin-specific protease 22 (USP22) in the growth and progression of gastric cancer (GC). USP22 mRNA and protein levels were significantly higher in GC tissue samples and GC cell lines than in adjacent noncancerous tissue samples and a normal gastric mucosal epithelial cell line (GES1), respectively. USP22 knockdown significantly decreased in vitro survival, proliferation, migration, and invasiveness of GC cells compared with the controls. Western blot analysis of control and USP22-silenced GC cells showed that USP22 modulates the c-Myc/NAMPT/SIRT1-dependent FOXO1 and YAP signaling pathways. Subcutanenous injection of USP22-silenced GC cells into SCID mice generated significantly smaller xenograft tumors than did control cells. Moreover, USP22-silenced GC cells showed less lung metastasis than the controls following tail vein injection in SCID mice. In addition, high USP22 expression correlated positively with tumor size, advanced stage and metastasis, and correlated negatively with tumor differentiation and prognosis in GC patients. These results show that USP22 regulates growth and progression of GC via the c-Myc/NAMPT/SIRT1-dependent FOXO1 and YAP signaling pathways. PMID: 31689236 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]

This study revealed that the decreased expression of RORα is associated with GC development, progression, and prognosis. RORα suppressed cell proliferation, EMT, and invasion in GC cells through inhibition of the Wnt/β-catenin pathway. RORα overexpression resulted in the decreased Wnt1 expression and the increased RORα interaction with β-catenin, which could lead to the decreased intranuclear β-catenin and p-β-catenin levels, concomitant with downregulated T-cell factor-4 (TCF-4) expression and the promoter activity of c-Myc. The inhibition of Wnt/β-catenin pathway was coupl...

Authors: Zhang F, Chen C, Hu J, Su R, Zhang J, Han Z, Chen H, Li Y Abstract Helicobacter pylori (H. pylori) is a gram-negative pathogen that colonizes gastric epithelial cells. The drug resistance rates of H. pylori have dramatically increased, causing persistent infections. Chronic infection by H. pylori is a critical cause of gastritis, peptic ulcers and even gastric cancer. In host cells, autophagy is stimulated to maintain cellular homeostasis following intracellular pathogen recognition by the innate immune defense system. However, H. pylori-induced autophagy is not consistent during acute and chronic infectio...

Authors: Vergara D, Simeone P, Damato M, Maffia M, Lanuti P, Trerotola M Abstract With the advent of novel molecular platforms for high-throughput/next-generation sequencing, the communities of commensal and pathogenic microorganisms that inhabit the human body have been defined in depth. In the last decade, the role of microbiota-host interactions in driving human cancer plasticity and malignant progression has been well documented. Germ-free preclinical models provided an invaluable tool to demonstrate that the human microbiota can confer susceptibility to various types of cancer and can also modulate the host re...

TOPK promotes epithelial-mesenchymal transition and invasion of breast cancer cells through upregulation of TBX3 in TGF-β1/Smad signaling. Biochem Biophys Res Commun. 2019 Nov 20;: Authors: Lee YJ, Park JH, Oh SM Abstract TOPK has been suggested to contribute to invasion of lung, prostate, gastric, pancreatic or breast cancer cells. However, how TOPK mediates TGF-β1/Smad signaling leading to epithelial-mesenchymal transition (EMT) and invasion of breast cancer cells remains unknown. Here we report that TOPK upregulates T-box transcription factor TBX3 to enhance TGF-β1-induced EMT and in...

SDC1 has different effects in various types of cancers. On the one hand, reduced expression of SDC1 can leads to advantage stages of some cancers, such as gastric and colorectal cancer. On the other hand, SDC1 overexpression can also promote the growth and proliferation of cancer cells in pancreatic and breast cancer. Howe...

Abstract Traditional gene fusions are involved in the development of various neoplasias. DUS4L-BCAP29, a chimeric fusion RNA, has been reported to be a cancer-related fusion in prostate and gastric cancers. This chimeric RNA is believed to play a tumorigenic role. Here, we showed that the DUS4L-BCAP29 fusion transcript exists in a variety of normal tissues. It is also present in noncancerous epithelial and fibroblast cell lines. Quantitatively, the fusion transcript has a similar expression level in noncancerous gastric and prostate cell lines and tissues to its expression in cancerous cell lines and tissues. Prev...
