LIM and SH3 protein 1 (LASP1) enhances tumor growth and metastasis in various cancers, but its role in nasopharyngeal carcinoma (NPC) remains unclear. Herein, we investigated the role of LASP1 in NPC and explored the underlying mechanisms in NPC. Clinically, overexpression of LASP1 is associated with tumor metastasis and poor prognosis of NPC patients. Gain-of-function and loss-of-function assays showed that LASP1 promoted NPC cell proliferation, metastasis, and invasion in vitro and in vivo. Mechanistically, we observed clear co-localization between LASP1 and PTEN in NPC cells...

The growing evidence shows that LIM and SH3 Domain Protein 1 (LASP1) is a multi-functional protein that plays important role in forming cytoskeleton and prognostic marker in different cancers. LASP1 expression is correlated with the grade, size, and the metastasis of tumor in clinical samples. And the upregulation of LASP1 facilitates tumor cells proliferation, migration, and invasion perhaps through the interaction with cytoskeleton and increased nuclear translocation. The underlying mechanism of LASP1 on tumor is still in the initial stage; therefore, the signaling pathways in various tumors are specifically summarized to deepen the biological understanding of LASP1...

Overexpression of LIM and SH3 protein 1 (LASP1) is required for colorectal cancer (CRC) development and progression. Here, C-Jun activation domain-binding protein-1 (Jab1), also known as COP9 signalosome subunit 5 (COPS5), was verified as a new LASP1-interacting protein through yeast two-hybrid assay. The role of COPS5 in LASP1-mediated CRC progression remains unknown. GST pull-down assay indicated that the SH3 domain of LASP1 could directly bind to MPN domain of COPS5. In vitro gain- and loss-of-function analyses revealed the stimulatory role of COPS5 on CRC cell proliferation, migration and invasion...

Lasp2, as well as Lasp1, is a member of the LIM-protein subfamily of the nebulin group characterized by the combined presence of LIM and SH3 domains. Lasp1 and Lasp2 are highly conserved in their LIM, nebulin-like, and SH3 domains but differ significantly at their linker regions. Lasp1 had been described as an oncogenic protein that was highly expressed in diverse cancer types and facilitated tumor proliferation, invasion, and metastasis process. However, unlike Lasp1, little is known about the functions of Lasp2...

Although usually referred to as a structural actin-binding protein, LIM and SH3 domain-containing protein may actually be dynamically involved in the control of a wide spectrum of cellular processes, by virtue of its interaction with several molecular partners. Alongside being ubiquitously expressed in physiological conditions, LIM and SH3 domain-containing protein is overexpressed in a growing number of human cancers, in which it may actively contribute to their aggressiveness by promoting cell proliferation and migration...

Rhizochalinin (Rhiz) is a novel marine natural sphingolipid-like compound, which shows promising in vitro and in vivo activity in human castration-resistant prostate cancer. In the present study, a global proteome screening approach was applied to investigate molecular targets and biological processes affected by Rhiz in castration-resistant prostate cancer. Bioinformatical analysis of the data predicted an antimigratory effect of Rhiz on cancer cells. Validation of proteins involved in the cancer-associated processes, including cell migration and invasion, revealed downregulation of specific isoforms of stathmin and LASP1, as well as upregulation of Grp75, keratin 81, and precursor IL-1β by Rhiz...

Preeclampsia (PE) is a major contributor to maternal morbidity and mortality. However, the molecular mechanisms underlying PE progression are not well characterized. Here, we investigated the role of miR-218 in PE development. The expression of miR-218 and its host genes SLIT2 and SLIT3 was up-regulated in preeclamptic placentae compared to normal placentae. miR-218 expression was induced by hypoxia and decreased after knockdown of HIF-1α in an extravillous trophoblast cell line (HTR-8/SVneo). Chromatin immunoprecipitation assays showed direct binding of HIF-1α to the promoters of SLIT2 and SLIT3...

Long non-coding RNAs are a group of non-coding RNAs longer than 200 nucleotides and possess diverse functions and exhibit exquisite cell-specific and developmental dynamic expression patterns. The role of the long non-coding RNA PVT1 in esophageal squamous cell carcinoma remains unsolved. Here, we showed that PVT1 expression is significantly up-regulated in ESCC tumor samples compared with their normal counterparts. Knockdown of PVT1 suppressed tumor growth in vitro and in vivo. Further studies revealed that silence of PVT1 lead to up-regulation of miR-203, and vice versa...

Thousands of long intergenic non-protein coding RNAs (lincRNAs) have been identified in mammals in genome-wide sequencing studies. Some of these RNAs have been consistently conserved during the evolution of species and could presumably function in important biologic processes. Therefore, we measured the levels of 26 highly conserved lincRNAs in a total of 176 pairs of endometrial carcinoma (EC) and surrounding non-tumor tissues of two distinct Chinese populations. Here, we report that a lincRNA, LINC00672 , which possesses an ultra-conserved region, is aberrantly down-regulated during the development of EC...

MicroRNAs (miRs), a class of small noncoding RNAs, are key gene regulators through inducing translational repression or degradation of their target genes. However, the regulatory mechanism of miR-133b underlying hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC) growth and metastasis remains largely unclear. Here we found that miR-133b was significantly downregulated in HCC tissues and cell lines. Moreover, low miR-133b levels were significantly associated with the malignant progression of HCC. LASP1, upregulated in HCC tissues and cell lines, was then identified as a novel target of miR-133b in HCC HepG2 and Hep3B cells...
