Knockdown of TRIM47 inhibits breast cancer tumorigenesis and progression through the inactivation of PI3K/Akt pathway

Publication date: Available online 22 January 2020Source: Chemico-Biological InteractionsAuthor(s): Yaqiu Wang, Can Liu, Zhihui Xie, Hong LuAbstractTripartite motif (TRIM) protein family is a group of proteins, which belongs to RING family of ubiquitin E3 ligases. TRIM proteins are involved in oncogenesis, while the roles in different cancers are controversial. However, the expression pattern and biological functions of TRIM47 in breast cancer remain unclear. In the present study, we aimed to investigate the function of TRIM47 in the progression and metastasis of breast cancer. TRIM47 was found to be significantly up-regulated in breast cancer tissues and cell lines. TRIM47 knockdown in breast cancer cell lines significantly inhibited cell proliferation, migration, and invasion. Besides, TRIM47 knockdown regulated the expressions of the epithelial-mesenchymal transition (EMT)-related markers including increase in E-cadherin, and decrease in N-cadherin, vimentin and Snail. Xenograft tumor assay proved that TRIM47 knockdown also suppressed tumor growth in vivo. Furthermore, TRIM47 knockdown markedly inhibited the activation of PI3K/Akt signaling pathway, while the effects of TRIM47 knockdown were reversed by the treatment of insulin-like growth factor-1 (IGF-1), which is an activator of PI3K/Akt. Taken together, the findings indicated that knockdown of TRIM47 suppressed tumorigenesis and progression of breast cancer through the inhibition of PI3K/Akt pathway, and suggested that...

Authors: Kaprio T, Hagström J, Andersson LC, Haglund C Abstract CD63, a member of the tetraspanin family, is expressed in endosomes and enriched in exosomes. Tetraspanins participate in a variety of physiological processes, including cellular differentiation, cell-cell fusion, and cell migration. CD63 reportedly carries both protumorigenic and tumor suppressor properties, and appears to be upregulated in breast cancer, astrocytoma, and melanoma. Yet, the effect of CD63 on cancer prognosis remains unclear, and no previous reports examined it in colorectal cancer (CRC). Identifying novel biomarkers will allow us...

Utilizing a mouse model of mammary cancer to temporally delete essential autophagy regulators, ATG12 or ATG5, in tumor cells during distinct stages of carcinoma progression, we determine a stage-specific role for autophagy in suppressing metastatic colonization. In stark contrast to the tumor-promoting role of autophagy in primary mammary tumors, autophagy restricts colonization of dissem...

Conclusions: STCs with epithelial-like morphology contribute to breast cancer metastasis and represent an attractive model for studying mechanisms of metastatic seeding. The assessment of STCs in histological sections of breast tumors can be a simple and effective method for the prediction of metastasis risk.

AbstractOverexpression of either miR ‐302 or miR‐302/367 cluster induces reprogramming of cancer cells and exerts tumor‐suppressive effects by induction of mesenchymal‐to‐epithelial transition, apoptosis and a less proliferative capacity. Several reports have described miR‐16 as a tumor suppressor microRNA (miRNA). Here, we studied the impact of exogenous induction of miR‐16 in MDA‐MB‐231 and SK‐BR‐3 breast cancer cells following overexpression of miR‐302/367 cluster and investigated whether transfection of these cells by a mature miR‐16 mimic could affect the reprogramming state of the cells and ...

Conclusions: Our findings demonstrate that Regorafenib enhanced radiosensitivity of breast cancer cells by inhibiting the expression of multiple receptor tyrosine kinases, VEGF-mediated angiogenesis and DNA damage response in TNBC. Therefore, combining Regorafenib with radiation and antiangiogenic agents will be beneficial and effective in controlling TNBC. PMID: 32052681 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]

ConclusionIn leukemic cells the pyrimidine catabolism induces terminal differentiation towards monocytic lineage to check the aberrant cell proliferation whereas in some solid tumors (such as triple negative breast cancer and hepatocellular carcinoma) catalytic degradation of pyrimidines maintains the mesenchymal-like state driven by epithelial to mesenchymal transition (EMT). This review further broadens this concept to understand the effect of PyM on metastasis and, ultimately, delivers a rationale to investigate the involvement of the pyrimidine molecules as oncometabolites. Overall, understanding the non-proliferative ...

In this study, we demonstrated that GPR30 is involved in cisplatin resistance by promoting EMT in gastric cancer. GPR30 knockdown resulted in increased sensitivity of different gastric cancer (GC) cells to cisplatin and alterations in the epithelial/mesenchymal markers. Furthermore, G15 significantly enhanced the cisplatin sensitivity of GC cells while G1 inhibited this phenomenon. In addition, EMT occurred when AGS and BGC-823 were treated with cisplatin. Down-regulation of GPR30 with G15 inhibited this transformation, while G1 promoted it. Taken together, these results revealed the role of GPR30 in the formation of cispl...
