Cdk5, which plays a role in the development and progression of many human cancers, localizes in the mitochondria, a key determinant of apoptotic cell death. Cdk5 is upregulated in breast cancer cells but it was shown that Cdk5 loss increases chemotherapy-induced apoptosis. However, the molecular mechanism by which Cdk5 loss promotes cell death remains unclear. Here, we investigate the possibility that Cdk5 loss activates the intrinsic apoptotic pathway in breast cancer cells. We demonstrate that Cdk5-deficient breast cancer cells exhibit increased mitochondrial depolarization, mitochondrial ROS levels, and mitochondrial fragmentation that is associated with an increase in both intracellular Ca2+ level and calcineurin activity, and DRP1 S637 dephosphorylation...

Basal type breast cancer is the most aggressive and has mesenchymal features with a high metastatic ability. However, the signaling node that determines the basal type features in breast cancer remains obscure. Here, we report that FYN among SRC family kinases is required for the maintenance of basal type breast cancer subtype. Importantly, FYN enhanced NOTCH2 activation in basal type breast cancer cells through STAT5-mediated upregulation of Jagged-1 and DLL4 NOTCH ligands, thereby contributed to mesenchymal phenotypes...

BRAF is one of the most frequently mutated genes across a number of different cancers, with the best-characterized mutation being V600E. Despite the successes of treating BRAF mutant V600E lung cancer with BRAF pathway inhibitors, treatment strategies targeting tumors with non-V600E mutations are yet to be established. We studied cellular signaling differences between lung cancers with different BRAF mutations and determined their sensitivities to BRAF pathway inhibitors. Here, we observed that MEK inhibition induced feedback activation of the receptor tyrosine kinase (RTK) EGFR, and in some cases the RTK FGFR, resulting in transient suppression of ERK phosphorylation in BRAF non-V600E, but not BRAF V600E, mutant cells...

The linearization of the stromal extracellular matrix (ECM) by cancer-associated fibroblasts (CAFs) facilitates tumor cell growth and metastasis. However, the mechanism by which the ECM is remodeled is not fully understood. Hic-5 (TGFβ1i1), a focal adhesion scaffold protein, has previously been reported to be crucial for stromal ECM deposition and remodeling in vivo. Herein we show that CAFs lacking Hic-5 exhibit a significant reduction in the ability to form fibrillar adhesions, a specialized form of focal adhesion that promote fibronectin fibrillogenesis...

Latent transforming growth factor β (TGFβ)-binding proteins (LTBPs) are important for the secretion, activation, and function of mature TGFβ, especially so in cancer cell physiology. However, specific roles of the LTBPs remain understudied in the context of the primary tumor microenvironment. Herein, we investigated the role of LTBP3 in the distinct processes involved in cancer metastasis. By using three human tumor cell lines of different tissue origin (epidermoid HEp-3 and prostate PC-3 carcinomas and HT-1080 fibrosarcoma) and several metastasis models conducted in both mammalian and avian settings, we show that LTBP3 is involved in the early dissemination of primary cancer cells, namely in the intravasation step of the metastatic cascade...

The mesenchymal gene program has been shown to promote the metastatic progression of ovarian cancer; however, specific proteins induced by this program that lead to these metastatic behaviors have not been identified. Using patient derived tumor cells and established human ovarian tumor cell lines, we find that the Epithelial-to-Mesenchymal Transition inducing factor TWIST1 drives expression of discoidin domain receptor 2 (DDR2), a receptor tyrosine kinase (RTK) that recognizes fibrillar collagen as ligand...

TP53 mutations frequently occur in head and neck squamous cell carcinoma (HNSCC) patients without human papillomavirus infection. The recurrence rate for these patients is distinctly high. It has been actively explored to identify agents that target TP53 mutations and restore wild-type (WT) TP53 activities in HNSCC. PRIMA-1 (p53-reactivation and induction of massive apoptosis-1) and its methylated analogue PRIMA-1Met (also called APR-246) were found to be able to reestablish the DNA-binding activity of p53 mutants and reinstate the functions of WT p53...

Poorly differentiated colorectal cancers (CRCs) are more aggressive and lack targeted therapies. We and others previously reported the predominant role of tumor-suppressor NDRG2 in promoting CRC differentiation, but the underlying mechanism is largely unknown. Herein, we demonstrate that NDRG2 induction of CRC cell differentiation is dependent on the repression of E3 ligase Skp2 activity. In patients and Ndrg2 knockout mice, NDRG2 and Skp2 are negatively correlated and associated with cell differentiation stage...

Migration and invasion inhibitory protein (MIIP) is recently identified as an inhibitor in tumor development. However, the regulatory mechanism and biological contributions of MIIP in pancreatic cancer (PC) have been not elucidated. In this study, we demonstrated a negative feedback of MIIP and hypoxia-induced factor-1α (HIF-1α), which was mediated by a hypoxia-induced microRNA. Compared with paracarcinoma tissues, MIIP was downregulated in PC tissues. Overexpression of MIIP significantly impeded the proliferation and invasion of PC cells both in vitro and in mouse xenograft models...

Emerging notion in carcinogenesis ascribes tumor initiation and aggressiveness to cancer stem cells (CSCs). Specifically, colorectal cancer (CRC) development was shown to be compatible with CSCs hypothesis. Mutations in p53 are highly frequent in CRC, and are known to facilitate tumor development and aggressiveness. Yet, the link between mutant p53 and colorectal CSCs is not well-established. In the present study, we set to examine whether oncogenic mutant p53 proteins may augment colorectal CSCs phenotype...

Circular RNAs (circRNAs) are recognized as functional non-coding transcripts in eukaryotic cells. Recent evidence has indicated that even though circRNAs are generally expressed at low levels, they may be involved in many physiological or pathological processes, such as gene regulation, tissue development and carcinogenesis. Although the 'microRNA sponge' function is well characterized, most circRNAs do not contain perfect trapping sites for microRNAs, which suggests the possibility that circRNAs have functions that have not yet been defined...

Cancer cells have metabolic features that allow them to preferentially metabolize glucose through aerobic glycolysis, providing them with a progression advantage. However, microRNA (miRNA) regulation of aerobic glycolysis in cancer cells has not been extensively investigated. We addressed this in the present study by examining the regulation of miR-139-5p on aerobic glycolysis of hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC) using clinical specimens, HCC cells, and a mouse xenograft model. We found that overexpressing miR-139-5p restrained aerobic glycolysis, suppressing proliferation, migration, and invasion in HCC cells...

Pyruvate kinase muscle isozymes (PKMs) have crucial roles in regulating metabolic changes during carcinogenesis. A switch from PKM1 to PKM2 isoform was thought to lead to aerobic glycolysis promoting carcinogenesis, and was considered as one of the cancer signatures. However, recent evidence has argued against the existence of PKM isoform switch and related metabolic effects during cancer progression. We compared the effects of PKM1 and PKM2 in cell invasiveness and metastasis of pancreatic ductal adenocarcinoma (PDAC)...

There is growing interest in studying the molecular mechanisms of crosstalk between cancer metabolism and the cell cycle. 6-phosphate fructose-2-kinase/fructose-2,6-bisphosphatase-3 (PFKFB3) is a well-known glycolytic activator that plays an important role in tumorigenesis. We investigated whether PFKFB3 was directly involved in oncogenic signaling networks. Mass Spectrometry showed that PFKFB3 interacts with cyclin-dependent kinase (CDK) 4, which controls the transition from G1 phase to S phase of the cell cycle...

Persistent infection by high-risk human papillomaviruses (HPVs) is associated with the development of cervical cancer and a subset of anogenital and head and neck squamous cell carcinomas. Abnormal expression of cellular microRNAs (miRNAs) plays an important role in the development of cancer, including HPV-related tumors. In this study, we demonstrated that miR-146a-5p was down-regulated by E6 and, less efficiently, by E7 of high-risk HPV16 in keratinocytes and the presence of low levels of this miRNA in cervical carcinoma cell lines and in high-risk HPV-positive cervical specimens...

Phosphoenolpyruvate carboxykinase (PEPCK or PCK) catalyzes the first rate-limiting step in hepatic gluconeogenesis pathway to maintain blood glucose levels. Mammalian cells express two PCK genes, encoding for a cytoplasmic (PCPEK-C or PCK1) and a mitochondrial (PEPCK-M or PCK2) isoforms, respectively. Increased expressions of both PCK genes are found in cancer of several organs, including colon, lung, and skin, and linked to increased anabolic metabolism and cell proliferation. Here, we report that the expressions of both PCK1 and PCK2 genes are downregulated in primary hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC) and low PCK expression was associated with poor prognosis in patients with HCC...

BRAF mutations occur in ~10% of colorectal cancer (CRC) and are associated with poor prognosis. Inhibitors selective for the BRAFV600E oncoprotein, the most common BRAF mutant, elicit only poor response rates in BRAF-mutant CRC as single agents. This unresponsiveness was mechanistically attributed to the loss of negative feedbacks on the epidermal growth factor receptor (EGFR) and initiated clinical trials that combine BRAF (and MEK) inhibitors, either singly or in combination, with the anti-EGFR antibodies cetuximab or panitumumab...

As a rate-limiting step in metastasis, metastatic colonization requires survival signals from supportive stroma. However, the mechanisms driving this process are incompletely understood. Here, we showed that the proliferation of B16F10 cells was promoted when cocultured with lung fibroblasts. Meanwhile, co-injection of B16F10 tumor cells with mouse lung fibroblasts significantly increased lung metastasis. Based on GEO database, we identified stearoyl-CoA desaturase 1 (SCD1) as a novel factor promoting metastatic colonization...

The process of organ development requires a delicate balance between cellular plasticity and differentiation. This balance is disrupted in cancer initiation and progression. N-Myc and STAT interactor (NMI: human or Nmi: murine) has emerged as a relevant player in the etiology of breast cancer. However, a fundamental understanding of its relevance to normal mammary biology is lacking. To gain insight into its normal function in mammary gland, we generated a mammary-specific Nmi knockout mouse model. We observed that Nmi protein expression is induced in mammary epithelium at the onset of pregnancy, in luminal cells and persists throughout lactation...

Personalized medicine for cancer patients requires a deep understanding of the underlying genetics that drive cancer and the subsequent identification of predictive biomarkers. To discover new genes and pathways contributing to oncogenesis and therapy resistance in HER2+ breast cancer, we performed Mouse Mammary Tumor Virus (MMTV)-induced insertional mutagenesis screens in ErbB2/cNeu-transgenic mouse models. The screens revealed 34 common integration sites (CIS) in mammary tumors of MMTV-infected mice, highlighting loci with multiple independent MMTV integrations in which potential oncogenes are activated, most of which had never been reported as MMTV CIS...
