PURPOSE: In this study, we investigated the role of Aurora kinase A (AURKA) in regulating EIF4E, cap-dependent translation, and resistance to mTOR inhibitor, RAD001 (everolimus). EXPERIMENTAL DESIGN: Tumor xenografts and in vitro cell models of upper gastrointestinal adenocarcinomas (UGCs) were used to determine the role of AURKA in activation of EIF4E and cap-dependent translation. Overexpression, knockdown, and pharmacologic inhibition of AURKA were used in vitro and in vivo...

Extracellular cues regulate cell fate, and this is mainly achieved through the engagement of specific transcriptional programs. The TORC1 and TORC2 complexes mediate the integration of nutritional cues to cellular behavior, but their interplay is poorly understood. Here, we use fission yeast to investigate how phosphatase activity participates in this interplay during the switch from proliferation to sexual differentiation. We find that loss of PP2A-B55(Pab1) enhances the expression of differentiation-specific genes and leads to premature conjugation...

OBJECTIVES: Cancerous inhibitor of protein phosphatase 2A (CIP2A) has emerged as a therapeutic determinant mediating the anti-cancer effects of several new agents. We investigated the efficacy and mechanism of TD52, an erlotinib derivative with minimal p-EGFR inhibition but significant CIP2A downregulation, in triple-negative breast cancer (TNBC) cells. METHODS: TNBC lines were used for in vitro studies. Cell apoptosis was examined by flow cytometry and Western blot...

Mammalian oocytes are arrested at prophase of the first meiotic division in the primordial follicle pool for months, even years, after birth depending on species, and only a limited number of oocytes resume meiosis, complete maturation, and ovulate with each reproductive cycle. We recently reported that protein phosphatase 6 (PP6), a member of the PP2A-like subfamily, which accounts for cellular serine/threonine phosphatase activity, functions in completing the second meiosis. Here, we generated mutant mice with a specific deletion of Ppp6c in oocytes from the primordial follicle stage by crossing Ppp6cF/F mice with Gdf9-Cre mice and found that Ppp6cF/F; GCre+ mice are infertile...

Protein phosphatase 2A (PP2A) plays a major role in maintaining cellular signaling homeostasis by dephosphorylation of a variety of signaling proteins and acts as a tumor suppressor. Protein phosphatase methylesterase-1 (PME-1) negatively regulates PP2A activity by highly complex mechanisms that are reviewed here. Importantly, recent studies have shown that PME-1 promotes oncogenic MAPK/ERK and AKT pathway activities in various cancer types. In human glioma, high PME-1 expression correlates with tumor progression and kinase inhibitor resistance...

: Middle T antigen (MT), the principal oncoprotein of murine polyomavirus, transforms by association with cellular proteins. Protein phosphatase 2A (PP2A), YAP, Src family tyrosine kinases, Shc, phosphatidylinositol 3-kinase (PI3K), and phospholipase C-γ1 (PLCγ1) have all been implicated in MT transformation. Mutant dl1015, with deletion of residues 338 to 347 in the C-terminal region, has been an enigma, because the basis for its transformation defect has not been apparent. This work probes the dl1015 region of MT...

Self-repair of nuclear DNA damage is the most known reason that leads to drug resistance of cancer tissue and limited therapeutic efficacy of anticancer drugs. Inhibition of protein phosphatase 2A (PP2A) would block DNA damage-induced defense of cancer cells to suppress DNA repair for enhanced cancer treatment. Here, we combined a PP2A inhibitor LB (4-(3-carboxy-7-oxa-bicyclo[2.2.1]heptane-2-carbonyl) piperazine-1-carboxylic acid tert-butyl ester) and the DNA damage chemotherapeutic drug cisplatin through a simple physical superposition...

B-cell receptor (BCR) signaling plays a pivotal role in the pathogenesis of diffuse large B-cell lymphoma (DLBCL) and targeting the BCR pathway is a highly promising therapeutic strategy in this malignancy. The oncogenic microRNA miR-17-92 modulates multiple cellular processes such as survival, proliferation, apoptosis, angiogenesis, and BCR signaling. In the present study, we identified new targets of miR-17-92, PTPROt (protein phosphatase, receptor type O, truncated) and PP2A (protein phosphatase 2A) phosphatases, which regulate the activity of spleen tyrosine kinase (SYK) and AKT, critical components of BCR signal transduction in DLBCL cells...

Recent evidence suggests that inhibition of protein phosphatase 2A (PP2A) tumor suppressor activity via the SET oncoprotein contributes to the pathogenesis of various cancers. Here we demonstrate that both SET and c-MYC expression are frequently elevated in T-ALL cell lines and primary samples compared to healthy T cells. Treatment of T-ALL cells with the SET antagonist OP449 restored the activity of PP2A and reduced SET interaction with the PP2A catalytic subunit, resulting in a decrease in cell viability and c-MYC expression in a dose-dependent manner...

Decidualization of human endometrial stromal cells (hESCs) is crucial for successful uterine implantation and maintaining pregnancy. We previously reported that phospholipase D1 (PLD1) is required for cAMP-induced decidualization of hESCs. However, the mechanism by which phosphatidic acid (PA), the product of PLD1 action, might regulate decidualization is not known. We confirmed that PA induced decidualization of hESCs by observing morphological changes and measuring increased levels of decidualization markers such as IGFBP1 and prolactin transcripts (P < 0...

Triple-negative breast cancer (TNBC) is very aggressive and currently has no specific therapeutic targets; as a consequence, TNBC exhibits poor clinical outcome. In this study, we showed that cancerous inhibitor of protein phosphatase 2A (Cip2a) represents a promising target in TNBC because Cip2a was highly expressed in TNBC cells and tumor tissues, and its expression showed an inverse correlation with overall survival in patients with TNBC. We found that inhibition of Cip2a in TNBC cells induced cell cycle arrest at the G2/M phase, inhibited cell proliferation and delayed tumor growth in the xenograft model...

Insulin regulates an essential conserved signaling pathway affecting growth, proliferation, and metabolism. To expand our understanding of the insulin pathway, we combine biochemical, genetic, and computational approaches to build a comprehensive Drosophila InR/PI3K/Akt network. First, we map the dynamic protein-protein interaction network surrounding the insulin core pathway using bait-prey interactions connecting 566 proteins. Combining RNAi screening and phospho-specific antibodies, we find that 47% of interacting proteins affect pathway activity, and, using quantitative phosphoproteomics, we demonstrate that ∼10% of interacting proteins are regulated by insulin stimulation at the level of phosphorylation...

Tumours progress despite being infiltrated by tumour-specific effector T cells. Tumours contain areas of cellular necrosis, which are associated with poor survival in a variety of cancers. Here, we show that necrosis releases intracellular potassium ions into the extracellular fluid of mouse and human tumours, causing profound suppression of T cell effector function. Elevation of the extracellular potassium concentration ([K(+)]e) impairs T cell receptor (TCR)-driven Akt-mTOR phosphorylation and effector programmes...

Recently, β-arrestin1 was indicated as a tumor promoter in prostate cancer, but its exact role in cancer metastasis still have not been well clarified. Here, our data revealed that β-arrestin1 could promote the migration and invasion of prostate cancer cells via initiating epithelial-mesenchymal transition (EMT). Mechanically, β-arrestin1 could increase the transcriptional activity and expression of β-catenin, together with Akt activity, whereas decrease the activities of GSK-3β and PP2A. In addition, β-arrestin1 could function as a scaffold protein in modulating the interactions between PP2A, Akt, GSK-3β and β-catenin...

Aberrant activation of signal transduction pathways can transform a normal cell to a malignant one and can impart survival properties that render cancer cells resistant to therapy. A diverse set of cascades have been implicated in various cancers including those mediated by serine/threonine kinases such RAS, PI3K/AKT, and PKC. Signal transduction is a dynamic process involving both "On" and "Off" switches. Activating mutations of RAS or PI3K can be viewed as the switch being stuck in the "On" position resulting in continued signaling by a survival and/or proliferation pathway...

Activation of the Protein Kinase B (PKB), or AKT pathway has been shown to correlate with acute myeloid leukemia (AML) prognosis. B55α-Protein Phosphatase 2A (PP2A) has been shown to dephosphorylate AKT at Thr-308 rendering it inactive. In fact, low expression of the PP2A regulatory subunit B55α was associated with activated phospho-AKT and correlated with inferior outcomes in AML. Despite this fact, no studies have specifically demonstrated a mechanism whereby B55α expression is regulated in AML. In this study, we demonstrate novel loss of function mutations in the PPP2R2A gene identified in leukemic blasts from three AML patients...

Insulin resistance is associated with deregulation of insulin signaling owing to the chronic exposure of insulin (hyperinsulinemia) to the tissues. Phosphorylation and dephosphorylation events in insulin signaling pathway play an essential role in signal transduction and glucose uptake. Amongst all, Akt protein is considered to be central to the overall insulin signaling proteins. In glucose responsive tissues like adipose and muscles, activation of Akt is responsible for triggering GLUT4 translocation and glucose transport...

Microcystin-LR (MC-LR), a heptapeptide produced by blue-green algae, is shown to induce cytotoxicity by inhibiting protein phosphatase 2A (PP2A) activity. Our previous study revealed that MC-LR promoted cell proliferation in vitro by activating the Akt/mTORC1/S6K1 pathway. This study aims to further investigate the effects of MC-LR on cell proliferation and the correlated mechanisms in vivo. Mice were injected intraperitoneally with 20-80 μg/kg/d MC-LR from 2 h (hours) to 4 d (days). The results showed that the associations of MC-LR with PP2A/C (PP2A C subunit) were concentration-dependent but not time-dependent in the liver, whereas the total PP2A activity was inhibited in both concentration and time dependent manners...

Somatic missense mutations in the Ser/Thr protein phosphatase 2A (PP2A) Aα scaffold subunit gene PPP2R1A are among the few genomic alterations that occur frequently in serous endometrial carcinoma (EC) and carcinosarcoma, two clinically aggressive subtypes of uterine cancer with few therapeutic options. Previous studies reported that cancer-associated Aα mutants exhibit defects in binding to other PP2A subunits and contribute to cancer development by a mechanism of haploinsufficiency. Here we report on the functional significance of the most recurrent PPP2R1A mutations in human EC, which cluster in Aα HEAT repeats 5 and 7...

Expression of adaptor protein, phosphotyrosine interaction, pleckstrin homology domain, and leucine zipper containing 1 (APPL1) promoted glucose transporter 4 (GLUT4) translocation and glucose uptake in adipose and muscle tissues in response to stimulation with insulin, adiponectin, or exercise. In response to mechanical stretch, knockdown of APPL1 in C2C12 myotubes suppressed glucose uptake. APPL1-induced increased glucose uptake was mediated by protein kinase C (PKC) ζ but not AKT, AMPK, or calmodulin-dependent protein kinase...
