Tripartite motif 37 (TRIM37) belongs to the TRIM family of proteins and has been reported to be involved in the progression of asthma. However, the effects of TRIM37 on airway smooth muscle cells (ASMCs) proliferation and migration are still unknown. This study aimed to investigate the effects of TRIM37 on cell proliferation and migration in platelet-derived growth factor BB (PDGF-BB)-stimulated ASMCs, and the potential molecular mechanisms was also explored. Our data demonstrated that the expression of TRIM37 was significantly decreased in ASMCs stimulated with PDGF-BB...

Tripartite motif 37 (TRIM37), a member of the TRIM protein family, was involved in the tumorigenesis of several types of cancer. However, the expression pattern and role of TRIM37 in glioma remain unclear. Therefore, the aim of the present study was to investigate the role of TRIM37 in glioma, and to determine the molecular mechanisms. Our results demonstrated that TRIM37 was highly expressed in human glioma tissues and cell liens. Additionally, knockdown of TRIM37 dramatically inhibited the proliferation, migration/invasion, and the epithelial-mesenchymal transition (EMT) phenotype in glioma cells...

Osteosarcoma (OS) is among the most frequently occurring bone tumors, particularly in children. Clinical treatment of OS is limited due to several factors including resistance to chemotherapy drugs and metastasis, and the underlying molecular mechanisms remain unclear. In the present study, tripartite motif containing 37 (TRIM37) expression levels were upregulated in tumor samples and associated with the development of drug resistance in OS. Furthermore, chemotherapy drug treatment (doxorubicin, cisplatin and methotrexate) induced TRIM37 expression in OS cells in vitro ...

Prenatal growth is a complex dynamic process controlled by various genetic and environmental factors. Among genetic syndromes characterized by growth restriction, MULIBREY nanism represents a rare autosomal recessive condition presenting with severe pre- and post-natal growth failure, characteristic dysmorphic features but normal neurological development. The phenotype of MULIBREY nanism is variable and overlaps with others such as the Silver-Russell syndrome. We report here three patients in two distinct non-Finnish families from North France who were first suspected to have Silver-Russell syndrome which failed to be confirmed on molecular analyses...

Most proteins destined for the peroxisomal matrix depend on the peroxisomal targeting signals (PTSs), which require the PTS receptor PEX5, whose deficiency causes fatal human peroxisomal biogenesis disorders (PBDs). TRIM37 gene mutations cause muscle-liver-brain-eye (mulibrey) nanism. We found that TRIM37 localizes in peroxisomal membranes and ubiquitylates PEX5 at K464 by interacting with its C-terminal 51 amino acids (CT51), which is required for PTS protein import. PEX5 mutations (K464A or ΔCT51), or TRIM37 depletion or mutation, reduce PEX5 abundance by promoting its proteasomal degradation, thereby impairing its functions in cargo binding and PTS protein import in human cells...

Mulibrey nanism is a rare autosomal recessive syndrome caused by a mutation in the TRIM37 gene with severe growth retardation and multiple organ involvement. Early diagnosis is important because 50% of the patients develop congestive heart failure owing to constrictive pericarditis, and this condition plays a critical role in the final prognosis. A 37-year-old female patient presented with symptoms of dyspnea on exertion and shortness of breath. She had severe growth failure and craniofacial dysmorphic feature...

BACKGROUND: Mulibrey nanism (MUL) is a rare inherited disease caused by genetic defects affecting peroxisomal TRIM37 protein. MUL affects multiple organs, leading to growth retardation and early onset type 2 diabetes. We aimed to characterize the structure and function of kidneys and the urinary tract in a large cohort of Finnish MUL patients. METHODS: Ultrasound, magnetic resonance imaging (MRI), and autopsy findings of the kidneys and urinary tract from 101 MUL patients were retrospectively analyzed...

There is substantial research on the oncogenic role of tripartite motif containing 37 (TRIM37); however, its importance in colorectal cancer (CRC) remains to be elucidated. The present study used reverse transcription‑quantitative polymerase chain reaction, immunohistochemistry and western blotting to detect the expression level of TRIM37 in CRC. The importance of TRIM37 in cell proliferation, invasion and metastasis of CRC were investigated through overexpressing or knocking‑down of TRIM37 in CRC cell lines, to observe its function...

In mammals, gene expression is largely controlled at the transcriptional level. In response to environmental or intrinsic signaling, gene expression is often fine-tuned by epigenetic modifications, including DNA methylation and histone modifications. One such histone modification is ubiquitination that predominately occurs in mono-ubiquitinated forms on histone H2A and H2B. We recently identified and characterized a novel E3 ligase called TRIM37 that ubiquitinates H2A. This study highlights the consequence of aberrant histone ubiquitination at the promoters of tumor suppressor genes in breast cancer...

In normal human cells, centrosome loss induced by centrinone-a specific centrosome duplication inhibitor-leads to irreversible, p53-dependent G1 arrest by an unknown mechanism. A genome-wide CRISPR/Cas9 screen for centrinone resistance identified genes encoding the p53-binding protein 53BP1, the deubiquitinase USP28, and the ubiquitin ligase TRIM37. Deletion of TP53BP1, USP28, or TRIM37 prevented p53 elevation in response to centrosome loss but did not affect cytokinesis failure-induced arrest or p53 elevation after doxorubicin-induced DNA damage...

Mulibrey nanism (MUL) is a rare autosomal recessive multi-organ disorder characterized by severe prenatal-onset growth failure, infertility, cardiopathy, risk for tumors, fatty liver, and type 2 diabetes. MUL is caused by loss-of-function mutations in TRIM37, which encodes an E3 ubiquitin ligase belonging to the tripartite motif (TRIM) protein family and having both peroxisomal and nuclear localization. We describe a congenic Trim37 knock-out mouse (Trim37(-/-)) model for MUL. Trim37(-/-) mice were viable and had normal weight development until approximately 12 months of age, after which they started to manifest increasing problems in wellbeing and weight loss...

Hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC) is the most common cancer in the world especially in East Asia and Africa. Advanced stage, metastasis and frequent relapse are responsible for the poor prognosis of HCC. However, the precise mechanisms underlying HCC remained unclear. So it is urgent to identify the pathological processes and relevant molecules of HCC. TRIM37 is an E3 ligase and has been observed deregulated expression in various tumors. Recent studies of TRIM37 have implicated that TRIM37 played critical roles in cell proliferation and other processes...

The TRIM37 (also known as MUL) gene is located in the 17q23 chromosomal region, which is amplified in up to ∼ 40% of breast cancers. TRIM37 contains a RING finger domain, a hallmark of E3 ubiquitin ligases, but its protein substrate(s) is unknown. Here we report that TRIM37 mono-ubiquitinates histone H2A, a chromatin modification associated with transcriptional repression. We find that in human breast cancer cell lines containing amplified 17q23, TRIM37 is upregulated and, reciprocally, the major H2A ubiquitin ligase RNF2 (also known as RING1B) is downregulated...

Transformation of follicular lymphoma (FL) to a more aggressive disease is associated with rapid progression and death. Existing molecular markers for transformation are few and their clinical impact is limited. Here, we report on a whole-genome study of DNA copy numbers and gene expression profiles in serial FL biopsies. We identified 698 genes with high correlation between gene expression and copy number, and the molecular network most enriched for these cis-associated genes. This network includes 14 cis-associated genes directly related to the nuclear factor κB (NF-κB) pathway...

Centrioles are essential for forming cilia, flagella, and centrosomes and are thus critical for a range of fundamental cellular processes. Despite their importance, the mechanisms governing centriole biogenesis remain incompletely understood. We performed a high-content genome-wide small-interfering-RNA-based screen to identify genes regulating centriole formation in human cells. We designed an algorithm to automatically detect GFP-Centrin foci that, combined with subsequent manual analysis, allowed us to identify 44 genes required for centriole formation and 32 genes needed for restricting centriole number...

UNLABELLED: Mulibrey nanism (MUL) is a rare autosomal recessive disorder with severe primordial growth retardation and multiorgan involvement, caused by mutations in TRIM37. Early clinical detection is important since more than 50 % of the patients develop congestive heart failure. We report a 12-year-old patient who presented in infancy with severe growth retardation, dysmorphic features, and cleft palate. Clinical diagnosis of MUL was established at the age of 5 years. Postmortem, molecular diagnostic confirmed MUL as a novel 1-bp deletion (c...

PURPOSE: We sought to identify asthma-related genes and to examine the potential of these genes to predict asthma, based on expression levels. METHODS: The subjects were 42 asthmatics and 10 normal healthy controls. PBMC RNA was subjected to microarray analysis using a 35K array; t-tests were used to identify genes that were expressed differentially between the two groups. A multiple logistic regression analysis was applied to the differentially expressed genes, and area under the curve (AUC) values from receiver operating characteristic (ROC) curves were obtained...

Many studies have examined DNA copy number changes or gene expression profiling and their association with clinical outcomes in breast cancer. However, until now no study has investigated whether acquired uniparental disomy (aUPD), in which both chromosomes in a pair are derived from the same parent, may have an association with clinical outcome including initiation and recurrence of breast cancer. In this study, we used high-density SNP and expression microarrays data from primary tumors of 313 lymph node-negative breast cancer patients who had not received adjuvant systemic therapy to evaluate the association of aUPD with metastasis-free survival (MFS) and overall survival (OS)...
