Dickkopf-1(DKK-1), the downstream target of β-catenin/T-cell factor, participates in a negative feedback loop in the Wnt signaling and reported as an important biomarker in many tumors. In this study, we analyzed the expression of DKK-1 in pancreatic ductal adenocarcinoma (PDAC) patients at both mRNA and protein levels. We used real-time PCR to detect the expression of DKK-1 in 32 PDAC and paired adjacent non-tumor tissues, results suggested that the expression of DKK-1 was increased in PDAC tissues. We found the similar results in the analysis of three independent microarray datasets...

We report for the first time the mechanism of action of the natural product thalicthuberine (TH) in prostate and cervical cancer cells. TH induced a strong accumulation of LNCaP cells in mitosis, severe mitotic spindle defects and asymmetric cell divisions, ultimately leading to mitotic catastrophe accompanied by cell death through apoptosis. However, unlike microtubule-binding drugs (vinblastine and paclitaxel), TH did not directly inhibit tubulin polymerization when tested in a cell-free system, whereas it reduced cellular microtubule polymer mass in LNCaP cells...

Much effort is currently focused on the p53 pathway. p53 is a key tumor suppressor, which is mutated or lost in many human cancers. Restoration of the p53 pathway holds the potential to induce selective cell death in tumor cells without harming normal cells that have intact p53 pathways. Most tumor cells express mutated p53 or suppress p53 by overexpression of MDM2. In this study, a compound referred to as CB002 with one closely related compound from the Chembridge library were evaluated for tumor cytotoxicity without affecting normal cells by restoration of the p53 pathway...

P53 tumor suppressor gene mutations occur in the majority of human cancers and contribute to tumor development, progression and therapy resistance. Direct functional restoration of p53 as a transcription factor has been difficult to achieve in the clinic. We performed a functional screen using a bioluminescence-based transcriptional read-out to identify small molecules that restore the p53 pathway in mutant p53-bearing cancer cells. We identified CB002, as a candidate that restores p53 function in mutant p53-expressing colorectal cancer cells and without toxicity to normal human fibroblasts...

Various types of stem cells reside in the skin, including keratinocyte progenitor cells, melanocyte progenitor cells, and skin-derived precursors (SKPs), and nestin-expressing hair follicle-associated-pluripotent (HAP) stem cells. HAP stem cells, located in the bulge area of the hair follicle, have been shown to differentiate to nerve cells, glial cells, keratinocytes, smooth muscle cells, cardiac muscle cells, and melanocytes. HAP stem cells are positive forthe stem cell marker CD34, as well as K15-negative, suggestingtheir relatively undifferentiated state and therefore, HAP stem cells may be the most primitive stem cells in the skin...

Telomeric sequences constitute only a small fraction of the whole genome yet they are crucial for ensuring genomic stability. This function is in large part mediated by protein complexes recruited to telomeric sequences by specific telomere-binding proteins (TBPs). Although the principal tasks of nuclear telomeres are the same in all eukaryotes, TBPs in various taxa exhibit a surprising diversity indicating their distinct evolutionary origin. This diversity is especially pronounced in ascomycetous yeasts where they must have co-evolved with rapidly diversifying sequences of telomeric repeats...

Nasopharyngeal carcinoma (NPC) is a kind of head-neck malignant tumor derived from the nasopharyngeal epithelium and is mainly prevalent in Southern China and Southeast Asia countries. Cisplatin (DDP) provides the first-line therapeutic administration in NPC patients. However, chemoresistance has been a main barrier and caused bad treatment outcome in NPC therapy. To understand the molecular mechanism of acquired resistance to DDP, multiple methods were performed to examine the morphocytology and molecular changes in DDP-resistant NPC cells...

In previous studies, we observed that Zeta-chain-associated protein kinase 70 (Zap70) regulates spindle assembly and chromosome alignment in mouse oocyte and that Ran binding protein 2 (RanBP2) is highly associated gene with Zap70 based on a microarray analysis. Because RanBP2 is related to nuclear envelope breakdown (NEBD) during mitosis, the aim of the present study was to elucidate the molecular mechanism of Zap70 with respect to RanBP2 in the germinal vesicle breakdown (GVBD) of oocytes. Results indicated that RanBP2 expression was regulated by Zap70 and that depletion of RanBP2 using RanBP2 RNAi manifested comparable phenotypes to those observed in Zap70 RNAi-treated oocytes, which presented faster processing of GVBD...

The neural precursor cell expressed developmentally downregulated protein 4 (NEDD4) plays a pivotal oncogenic role in various types of human cancers. However, the function of NEDD4 in bladder cancer has not been fully investigated. In the present study, we aim to explore whether NEDD4 governs cell proliferation, apoptosis, migration, and invasion in bladder cancer cells. Our results showed that downregulation of NEDD4 suppressed cell proliferation in bladder cancer cells. Moreover, we found that inhibition of NEDD4 significantly induced cell apoptosis...

Omar L Kantidze, Sergey V Razin
Active DNA demethylation performed by ten-eleven translocation (TET) enzymes produces 5-hydroxymethylcytosines, 5-formylcytosines, and 5-carboxylcytosines. Recent observations suggest that 5-hydroxymethylcytosine is a stable epigenetic mark rather than merely an intermediate of DNA demethylation. However, the clear functional role of this new epigenetic player is elusive. The contribution of 5-hydroxymethylation to DNA repair is being discussed currently. Recently Jiang and colleagues have demonstrated that DNA damage response-activated ATR kinase phosphorylates TET3 in mammalian cells and promotes DNA demethylation and 5-hydroxymethylcytosine accumulation...

Ceramides and sphingolipid intermediates are well-established regulators of the cell cycle. In the budding yeast Saccharomyces cerevisae, the complex sphingolipid backbone, ceramide, is comprised of a long chain sphingoid base, a polar head group, and a very long chain fatty acid (VLCFA). While ceramides and long chain bases have been extensively studied as to their roles in regulating cell cycle arrest under multiple conditions, the roles of VLCFAs are not well understood. Here, we used the yeast elo2 and elo3 mutants, which are unable to elongate fatty acids, as tools to explore if maintaining VLCFA elongation is necessary for cell cycle arrest in response to yeast mating...

Defining the roadblocks responsible for cell cycle arrest in adult cardiomyocytes lies at the core of developing cardiac regenerative therapies. p53 and Mdm2 are crucial mediators of cell cycle arrest in proliferative cell types, however little is known about their function in regulating homeostasis and proliferation in terminally differentiated cell types, like cardiomyocytes. To explore this, we generated a cardiac-specific conditional deletion of p53 and Mdm2 (DKO) in adult mice. Herein we describe the development of a dilated cardiomyopathy, in the absence of cardiac hypertrophy...

Small cell lung cancer (SCLC) is one of the most deadly cancers and currently lacks effective targeted treatment options. Recent advances in the molecular characterization of SCLC has provided novel insight into the biology of this disease and raises hope for a paradigm shift in the treatment of SCLC. We and others have identified activation of MYC as a driver of susceptibility to Aurora kinase inhibition in SCLC cells and tumors that translates into a therapeutic option for the targeted treatment of MYC-driven SCLC...

Liver cancer is the sixth most prevalent cancer, and the third most frequent cause of cancer-related deaths. Circular RNAs (circRNAs), a kind of special endogenous ncRNAs, have been coming back to the forefront of cancer genomics research. In this study, we employed a systems biology approach to construct and analyze the circRNA molecular regulatory networks in the context of liver cancer. We detected a total of 127 differentially expressed circRNAs and 3,235 differentially expressed mRNAs. We selected the top-5 upregulated circRNAs to construct a circRNA-miRNA-mRNA network...

Protection of chromosome cohesion through Shugoshin-dependent recruitment of the PP2A-B56 phosphatase to the pericentromeric region has become a cornerstone of the chromosome segregation model in eukaryotes. Shugoshin is essential for meiotic chromosome segregation in all tested eukaryotes but only found to be essential for mitotic chromosome segregation in vertebrates. Nishiyama and colleagues have now found that the protein Dalmatian, an ortholog of the vertebrate cohesion regulator Sororin, performs the function of Shugoshin in Drosophila melanogaster by recruiting PP2A-B56 to the pericentromeric region supporting an unified model of mitotic chromosome segregation in the animal kingdom...
