The Secretory Pathway Ca2+ ATPases SPCA1 and SPCA2 transport Ca2+ and Mn2+ into the Golgi and Secretory Pathway. SPCA2 mediates store-independent Ca2+ entry (SICE) via STIM1-independent activation of Orai1, inducing constitutive Ca2+ influx in mammary epithelial cells during lactation. Here, we show that like SPCA2, also the overexpression of the ubiquitous SPCA1 induces cytosolic Ca2+ influx, which is abolished by Orai1 knockdown and occurs independently of STIM1. This process elevates the Ca2+ concentration in the cytosol and in the non-endoplasmic reticulum (ER) stores, pointing to a functional coupling between Orai1 and SPCA1...

OBJECTIVE: MicroRNAs (miRNAs/miRs) are small noncoding RNAs that primarily function in RNA silencing and gene regulation at the posttranscriptional level in animals, plants and certain viruses. They have been reported to play a vital role in development and progression of diseases such as cancer. The present study was undertaken to establish a correlation between a specific miRNA in this cluster, termed miR92a, and its association with nonsmall cell lung cancer (NSCLC). MATERIALS AND METHODS: Total RNA was isolated from the plasma using an RNeasy mini kit and cDNA was synthesized by TaqMan MicroRNA Reverse Transcription kit...

Sorting of soluble proteins for transport to intracellular compartments and for secretion from cells is essential for cell and tissue homeostasis. The trans -Golgi network (TGN) is a major sorting station that sorts secretory proteins into specific carriers to transport them to their final destinations. The sorting of lysosomal hydrolases at the TGN by the mannose 6-phosphate receptor is well understood. The recent discovery of a Ca2+ -based sorting of secretory cargo at the TGN is beginning to uncover the mechanism by which cells sort secretory cargoes from Golgi residents and cargoes destined to the other cellular compartments...

Respiratory and arthropod-borne viral infections are a global threat due to the lack of effective antivirals and vaccines. A potential strategy is to target host proteins required for viruses but non-essential for the host. To identify such proteins, we performed a genome-wide knockout screen in human haploid cells and identified the calcium pump SPCA1. SPCA1 is required by viruses from the Paramyxoviridae, Flaviviridae, and Togaviridae families, including measles, dengue, West Nile, Zika, and chikungunya viruses...

Calcification of the breast is often an outward manifestation of underlying molecular changes that drive carcinogenesis. Up to 50% of all non-palpable breast tumors and 90% of ductal carcinoma in situ present with radiographically dense mineralization in mammographic scans. However, surprisingly little is known about the molecular pathways that lead to microcalcifications in the breast. Here, we report on a rapid and quantitative in vitro assay to monitor microcalcifications in breast cancer cell lines, including MCF7, MDA-MB-231, and Hs578T...

The Rho kinase pathway has previously been reported to possess a close relationship with the growth, migration and invasion of lung cancer cells. However, the molecular mechanisms underlying the effects of this pathway on lung cancer cells are still elusive. The aim of the present study was to investigate the effects and underlying molecular mechanisms of Ras homolog family member A (RhoA) on the proliferation and apoptosis of SPCA1 lung carcinoma cells. Stable SPCA1 lung cancer cell lines, in which RhoA expression was silenced by small interfering RNA, were isolated following Geneticin screening...

MicroRNA-221 (miRNA-221) plays an important role in occurrence and development of tumor. However, expression pattern and role of miRNA-221 in the non-small-cell lung carcinoma (NSCLC) remains poorly understood. In the current study, we explored the roles and the underlying mechanism of miR-221 in NSCLC by gain and loss of function analysis. We found that the expression of miRNA-221 is significantly higher in NSCLC tissues and NSCLC cells compared to normal tissues and cells, respectively (P<0.05). NSCLC cell lines SPCA1 and H1299 were transfected with miRNA-221 mimic or inhibitor, respectively, and then performed to analysis...

The accurate and efficient delivery of proteins to specific domains of the plasma membrane or to the extracellular space is critical for the ordered function of surface receptors and proteins such as insulin, collagens, antibodies, extracellular proteases. The trans-Golgi network is responsible for sorting proteins onto specific carriers for transport to their final destination. The role of the mannose-6-phosphate receptor in the sorting of hydrolases destined for lysosomes has been studied extensively, but the sorting mechanisms for secreted proteins remains poorly understood...

The mammalian SPCA1 and SPCA2 ATPases localize in membranes of the secretory pathway and transport ions of Ca(2+) and Mn(2+) The role of tissue-specific SPCA2 isoform, highly expressed in lungs, mammary gland and gastrointestinal tract, is poorly understood. To elucidate the function of SPCA2, we studied human colon cancer HCT116 cells, grown under ambient and decreased O2 levels. We found that in contrast with other Ca(2+)-ATPase isoforms the expression of SPCA2 was up-regulated under hypoxia (3% O2), in both adherent (2D) and spheroid (3D) cultures...

ATP2C1 gene codes for the secretory pathway Ca(2+)/Mn(2+)-ATPase pump type 1 (SPCA1) localizing at the golgi apparatus. Mutations on the human ATP2C1 gene, causing decreased levels of the SPCA1 expression, have been identified as the cause of the Hailey-Hailey disease, a rare skin disorder. In the last few years, several mutations have been described, and here we summarize how they are distributed along the gene and how missense mutations affect protein expression. SPCA1 is expressed in four different isoforms through alternative splicing of the ATP2C1 gene and none of these isoforms is differentially affected by any of these mutations...

Sorting and export of transmembrane cargoes and lysosomal hydrolases at the trans-Golgi network (TGN) are well understood. However, elucidation of the mechanism by which secretory cargoes are segregated for their release into the extracellular space remains a challenge. We have previously demonstrated that, in a reaction that requires Ca(2+), the soluble TGN-resident protein Cab45 is necessary for the sorting of secretory cargoes at the TGN. Here, we report that Cab45 reversibly assembles into oligomers in the presence of Ca(2+) These Cab45 oligomers specifically bind secretory proteins, such as COMP and LyzC, in a Ca(2+)-dependent manner in vitro...

Ca(2+)-ATPases belonging to the superfamily of P-type pumps play an important role in maintaining low, nanomolar cytoplasmic Ca(2+) levels at rest and priming organellar stores, including the endoplasmic reticulum, Golgi, and secretory vesicles with high levels of Ca(2+) for a wide range of signaling functions. In this review, we introduce the distinct subtypes of Ca(2+)-ATPases and their isoforms and splice variants and provide an overview of their specific cellular roles as they relate to genetic disorders and cancer, with a particular emphasis on recent findings on the secretory pathway Ca(2+)-ATPases (SPCA)...
