Recently, studies on transcriptome-proteome relationships have revealed mRNA/protein expression discordance for certain genes and speculated that protein post-translational modification (PTM) may be involved. However, there is currently no evidence to support this hypothesis. Wnt-induced secreted protein-1 (WISP1) is the downstream target gene of β-catenin and plays an important role in tumorigenesis and progression, but the expression and role of WISP1 in different tumor types are controversial. Here, we first confirmed WISP1 protein expression was significantly downregulated in hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC) tissue, and could be an independent predictor of poor prognosis for patients with HCC...

AIMS/HYPOTHESIS: Wingless-type (Wnt) inducible signalling pathway protein-1 (WISP1) has been recently identified as a proinflammatory adipokine. We examined whether WISP1 expression and circulating levels are altered in type 2 diabetes and whether WISP1 affects insulin signalling in muscle cells and hepatocytes. METHODS: Serum and visceral adipose tissue (VAT) biopsies, for analysis of circulating WISP1 levels by ELISA and WISP1 mRNA expression by real-time quantitative RT-PCR, were collected from normal-weight men (control group, n = 33) and obese men with (n = 46) and without type 2 diabetes (n = 56) undergoing surgery...

Wnt1-inducible signaling pathway protein-1 (WISP1) is a novel target of the Wnt pathway for modulating osteogenesis and improving bone strength. However, it is not clear if genetic variants in the WISP1 region are associated with bone mineral density (BMD) in human. The aim of this study is to investigate the role of genetic variation in WISP1 gene as a determinant of BMD in 1,510 Old Order Amish (OOA). We performed regional association analysis of 58 tag variants within 5 kb upstream and downstream to WISP1 with BMD and found 5 variants that were associated with BMD at multiple skeletal sites (P values from 2...

Although humans with X-linked hypophosphatemia (XLH) and the Hyp mouse, a murine homologue of XLH, are known to develop degenerative joint disease, the exact mechanism which drives the osteoarthritic (OA) phenotype remains unclear. Mice that overexpress high molecular weight FGF2 isoforms (HMWTg mice) phenocopy both XLH and Hyp including OA with increased fibroblast growth factor 23 (FGF23) production in bone and serum. Since HMWTg cartilage also has increased FGF23 and there is crosstalk between FGF23-Wnt/β-catenin signaling, the purpose of this study was to determine if OA observed in HMWTg mice is due to FGF23 mediated-canonical Wnt signaling in chondrocytes given that both pathways are implicated in OA pathogenesis...

Toll-like receptor (TLR) 2 is a key regulator of innate immune responses and has been shown to play an important role in inflammation-associated cancers. In this study, we aimed to evaluate the role of TLR2 in colorectal cancer (CRC). We demonstrated that TLR2 mRNA and protein expression was significantly upregulated in tumors from CRC patients and indicated poor prognosis. Using the TLR2 agonist Pam3Cys (P3C) to activate TLR2 signaling in human CRC cell lines, we showed that TLR2 drives cellular proliferation, which was dependent upon PI3K/Akt and NF-κB signaling pathways and was associated with the upregulation of anti-apoptotic genes BCL2A1, WISP1 and BIRC3...

To date, no study has investigated the involvement of the single-nucleotide polymorphisms (SNPs) of WNT1 inducible signaling pathway protein 1 (WISP1) in uterine cervical cancer. Therefore, we conducted this study to explore the clinical implications of WISP1 SNPs in cervical cancer. One hundred and fifteen patients with invasive cervical cancer, 95 patients with preinvasive lesions, and 316 normal controls were enrolled. The WISP1 SNPs rs62514004, rs2929973, rs2977530, and rs2977537 were selected, and their genotypic distributions were determined through real-time polymerase chain reaction...

Acute lymphoblastic leukemia (ALL) is the most common childhood cancer. It is well-known that genetic alterations constitute the basis for the etiology of ALL. However, genetic abnormalities are not enough for the complete development of the disease, and additional alterations such as epigenetic modifications are required. Such alterations, like DNA methylation, histone modifications, and noncoding RNA regulation have been identified in ALL. DNA hypermethylation in promoter regions is one of the most frequent epigenetic modifications observed in ALL...

Understanding the mechanisms that control cutaneous wound healing is crucial to successfully manage repair of damaged skin. The goal of the current study was to uncover novel extracellular matrix (ECM) components that control the wound healing process. Full thickness skin defects were created in mice and used to show CCN4 up-regulation during wound-healing as early as 1 day after surgery, suggesting a role in inflammation and subsequent dermal migration and proliferation. To determine how CCN4 could regulate wound healing we used Ccn4-KO mice and showed they had delayed wound closure accompanied by reduced expression of Col1a1 and Fn mRNA...

Wnt1-inducible signaling pathway protein-1 (WISP1) is a Cyr61/CTGF/NOV (CCN) family matricellular protein involved in adipogenesis and low-grade inflammation in obesity. However, the roles of WISP1 in hepatic steatosis and insulin resistance in skeletal muscle remain elusive. Mouse primary hepatocytes and differentiated mouse skeletal muscle cells (C2C12) were treated with various concentrations of WISP1 and the functions and signaling pathways were analyzed by Western blot analysis. In vivo transfection for WISP1 knockdown was also performed to examine the effects of WISP1 on hepatic steatosis and skeletal muscle insulin resistance...

Long non-coding RNAs represent a fraction of the transcriptome that is being increasingly recognized. For most of them no function has been allocated so far. Here, we describe the nature and function of a novel non-protein-coding transcript, named WISP1-AS1, discovered in human renal proximal tubule cells exposed to the carcinogenic nephrotoxin ochratoxin A. WISP1-AS1 overlaps parts of the fourth intron and fifth exon of the Wnt1-inducible signaling pathway protein 1 (WISP1) gene. The transcript is 2922 nucleotides long, transcribed in antisense direction and predominantly localized in the nucleus...

OBJECTIVES: Urothelial cell carcinoma (UCC) of the urinary bladder is a major malignancy of the genitourinary tract. Etiological factors, such as the environment, ethnicity, genetics, and diet, contribute to UCC carcinogenesis. WNT1-inducible signaling pathway protein 1 (WISP1), also known as CCN4, a cysteine-rich protein belonging to the Cyr61, CTGF, Nov (CCN) family of matricellular proteins, has many developmental functions and might be involved in carcinogenesis. This study investigated WISP1 single-nucleotide polymorphisms to evaluate UCC susceptibility and clinicopathological characteristics...

BACKGROUND: With almost 47 million individuals worldwide suffering from some aspect of dementia, it is clear that cognitive loss impacts a significant proportion of the global population. Unfortunately, definitive treatments to resolve or prevent the onset of cognitive loss are limited. In most cases such care is currently non-existent prompting the need for novel treatment strategies. METHODS: Mammalian forkhead transcription factors of the O class (FoxO) are one such avenue of investigation that offer an exciting potential to bring new treatments forward for disorders that involve cognitive loss...

Glioblastoma is the most common and aggressive primary brain tumor and has a high mortality in humans. However, mechanisms and factors involved in the progression of glioblastoma remain elusive. WISP1 (WNT1 inducible signaling pathway protein 1), has been suggested to be a critical regulator of cancer development. The aim of this study was to investigate the role of WISP1 in regulating the progression of glioblastoma. Clinicopathological characteristics of glioblastoma were assessed, and higher levels of WISP1 were positively associated with advanced clinical stage and a poor prognosis...

WISP1, as a member of the CCN4 protein family, has cell protective effects of promoting cell proliferation and inhibiting cell apoptosis. Although some studies have confirmed that WISP1 is concerned with colon cancer and lung cancer, there is little report about the influence of WISP1 in traumatic brain injury. Here, we found that the expression of WISP1 mRNA and protein decreased at 3 d and then increased at 5 d after traumatic brain injury (TBI). Meanwhile, immunofluorescence demonstrated that there was little colocation of WISP1 with GFAP, Iba1, and WISP1 colocalized with NeuN partly...

It has been suggested that age-related neurodegeneration might be associated with neuropeptide Y (NPY); sirtuin1 (SIRT1) and forkhead box transcription factors O subfamily (FOXOs) pathways. Melatonin, a hormone mainly secreted by the pineal gland, is another anti-aging agent associated with the SIRT1-FOXOs pathway. This study aimed to compare the effects of melatonin (Mel) and caloric restriction (CR) on the expression of Sirt1, FoxO1, FoxO3a and FOXOs target genes in the aging mouse hippocampus. Neuropeptide Y-knockout (NpyKO) and wild-type (WT) male mice aged 19 months were previously treated either with food ad libitum or CR for 16 months...

OBJECTIVE: Increased Wisp1 expression was previously reported in experimental and human osteoarthritis (OA). Moreover, adenoviral overexpression of Wisp1 in naïve mouse knee joints resulted in early OA-like cartilage lesions. Here, we determined how the matricellular protein WISP1 is involved in the pathology that occurs in the complex osteoarthritic environment with aging and experimental OA in wild type (WT) and Wisp1(-/-) mice. METHODS: WT and Wisp1(-/-) mice were aged or experimental OA was induced with intraarticular collagenase injection, destabilization of the medial meniscus (DMM) or anterior cruciate ligament transection (ACLT)...

Adequate placental angiogenesis is critical for the establishment of the placental circulation and thus for normal feto-placental growth and development. Fatty acid-binding protein-4 (FABP4) plays a pro-angiogenic role in endothelial cells; however, very little information is available in placental first trimester trophoblast cells. Here we report that exogenously added FABP4 (exo-FABP4) stimulated tube formation (as a measure of in vitro angiogenesis) in HTR8/SVneo trophoblastic cells. HTR-8/SVneo cells were incubated in the presence of exogenously added FABP4 at different concentrations and time points...

WISP1 (Wnt1-inducible signaling pathway protein-1, also known as CCN4) is a member of the CCN family able to mediate cell growth, transformation and survival in a tissue-specific manner. Here, we report that WISP1 expression was highly increased in preadipocytes and decreased during adipocyte differentiation. Moreover, we observed an increase in WISP1 gene expression in adipose tissue from both diet-induced and leptin-deficient ob/ob obese mice, suggesting that WISP1 could be involved in the pathophysiological onset of obesity...
