CDK5RAP3 Inhibits the Translocation of MCM6 to Influence the Prognosis in Gastric Cancer

Cyclin-dependent kinase 5 regulatory subunit-associated protein 3 (CDK5RAP3) was identified as a tumor suppressor in gastric cancer, while, minichromosome maintenance complex component 6 (MCM6), which is closely related to the initiation of DNA replication, was reported to be upregulated in multiple malignancies. However, the interaction between these two proteins has not been investigated in gastric cancer. Here, we evaluate the connection between CDK5RAP3 and MCM6 using mass spectrometry and immunoprecipitation. In cells, cell growth and invasiveness indicate that CDK5RAP3 acts as a tumor suppressor by preventing the effects of MCM6. The potential mechanism was revealed using immunofluorescence and nuclear protein extraction. In patients, immunohistochemistry and immunofluorescence show that the protein levels of CDK5RAP3 were markedly decreased in most gastric tumor tissues compared with adjacent nontumor tissues, and the expression levels of MCM6 in the nucleus showed the opposite trend. Prognostic analysis showed that the combined expression of CDK5RAP3 and MCM6 was an independent prognostic factor correlating with the overall survival of gastric cancer patients. Cox regression analysis indicated that the expression of CDK5RAP3 and MCM6 corresponded to T, N, and M stages. Our results demonstrate that CDK5RAP3 can interact with MCM6 and prevent MCM6 from translocating into the nucleus, which may be a potential mechanism through which CDK5RAP3 negatively regulates the prol...

AbstractExtranodal marginal zone lymphoma of mucosa-associated lymphoid tissue (MALT) lymphoma of the stomach is mainly associated withHelicobacter pylori infection, andH. pylori eradication therapy is often effective. However, 20 –30% of the cases of MALT lymphoma are resistant to the eradication therapy, and translocation of theAPI2-MALT1 gene is often found in these cases. Most cases without translocation ofAPI2-MALT1 are localized to the stomach, whereas some cases with this translocation are a more advanced stage of MALT lymphoma that spreads to other organs. The c-Met receptor is a prognostic factor involved in...

Abstract Stomach cancer is the fourth most common cancer worldwide. Identification of novel molecular therapeutic targets and development of novel treatments are critical. Against a panel of gastric carcinoma cell lines, the activity of 2-(4-amino-3-methylphenyl)-5-fluorobenzothiazole (5F 203) was investigated. Adopting RT-PCR, Western blot and immunohistochemical techniques, we sought to determine molecular pharmacodynamic (PD) markers of sensitivity and investigate arylhydrocarbon (AhR) receptor-mediated signal transduction activation by 5F 203. Potent (IC50  ≤ 0.09 μmol/L), selective (>2...

Abstract Ten-eleven translocation 3 (TET3) is responsible for the DNA methylation and plays an important role in regulation of the gene expression. TET2, another TET, is frequently mutated in hematologic malignancies and considered a driver gene for leukemogenesis. TET3 mRNA downregulation has been identified in many solid cancers, suggesting its role as a candidate tumor suppressor gene (TSG). However, somatic inactivating mutation and protein expression in solid cancers are largely unknown. The aim of our study was to find whether TET3 gene was mutated and expressionally altered in gastric (GC) and colorectal ca...

Lycopene induces apoptosis by inhibiting nuclear translocation of β-catenin in gastric cancer cells. J Physiol Pharmacol. 2019 Aug;70(4): Authors: Kim M, Kim SH, Lim JW, Kim H Abstract Reactive oxygen species (ROS) promote the development and progression of cancer by their effects on several signaling pathways. Lycopene, a major carotenoid natural product, is known to display antioxidant activity and to induce apoptosis of cancer cells. The aim of the present study was to investigate the mechanism by which lycopene induces apoptosis of the human gastric cancer AGS cells. In the present study, we s...
