Strongylocentrotus nudus is an edible sea urchin, mainly harvested in China. Correlation studies indicated that S. nudus with larger diameter have a prolonged marketing time and better palatability owing to their precocious gonads and extended maturation process. However, the molecular mechanism underlying this phenomenon is still unknown. Here, transcriptome sequencing was applied to study the ovaries of adult S. nudus with different shell diameters to explore the possible mechanism. In this study, four independent cDNA libraries were constructed, including two from the big size urchins and two from the small ones using a HiSeq™2500 platform...

The Tumor suppressor SMAR1 (scaffold matrix attachment region binding protein 1) has a crucial role in maintaining genomic stability, cell cycle progression and apoptosis.Our previous finding showed that it is highly suppressed in higher grade of cancer. However, the underlying mechanism of this suppression was not well understood. In this study, we show that SMAR1 expression levels are controlled at the proteasomal level by five RING finger E3 ubiquitin ligases including, Cdc20, a substrate receptor of ubiquitin ligase APC/C complex...

Serous ovarian cancer (SOC) is the most lethal gynecological cancer. Clinical studies have revealed an association between tumor stage and grade and clinical prognosis. Identification of meaningful clusters of co-expressed genes or representative biomarkers related to stage or grade may help to reveal mechanisms of tumorigenesis and cancer development, and aid in predicting SOC patient prognosis. We therefore performed a weighted gene co-expression network analysis (WGCNA) and calculated module-trait correlations based on three public microarray datasets (GSE26193, GSE9891, and TCGA), which included 788 samples and 10402 genes...

The Spindle Assembly Checkpoint (SAC) is part of a complex feedback system designed to ensure that cells do not proceed through mitosis unless all chromosomal kinetochores have attached to spindle microtubules. The formation of the kinetochore complex and the implementation of the SAC are regulated by multiple kinases and phosphatases. BubR1 is a phosphoprotein that is part of the Cdc20 containing mitotic checkpoint complex that inhibits the APC/C so that Cyclin B1 and Securin are not degraded, thus preventing cells going into anaphase...

Cells undergoing meiosis produce haploid gametes through one round of DNA replication followed by 2 rounds of chromosome segregation. This requires that cohesin complexes, which establish sister chromatid cohesion during S phase, are removed in a stepwise manner. At meiosis I, the separase protease triggers the segregation of homologous chromosomes by cleaving cohesin's Rec8 subunit on chromosome arms. Cohesin persists at centromeres because the PP2A phosphatase, recruited by the shugoshin protein, dephosphorylates Rec8 and thereby protects it from cleavage...

In mammalian females, germ cells remain arrested as primordial follicles. Resumption of meiosis is heralded by germinal vesicle breakdown, condensation of chromosomes, and their eventual alignment on metaphase plates. At the first meiotic division, anaphase-promoting complex/cyclosome associated with Cdc20 (APC/C(Cdc20)) activates separase and thereby destroys cohesion along chromosome arms. Because cohesion around centromeres is protected by shugoshin-2, sister chromatids remain attached through centromeric/pericentromeric cohesin...

To investigate differentially expressed genes regulated by microRNA-451a in colorectal cancer. We detected expression of microRNA-451a in colorectal cancer samples and normal pericarcinous tissues from 68 colorectal cancer patients and the correlation between microRNA-451a and clinical features of these patients. Then, the expression of microRNA-451a in HCT116, SW620, HT29, SW480, and DLD cells was also measured. The suppression subtractive hybridization method was used with two HCT116 cell lines with overexpressing or underexpressing microRNA-451a, respectively...

LSM family member 14 (LSM14) belongs to the RNA-associated protein (RAP) family that is widely expressed in different species, and whose functions include associating and storing mRNAs. In the present study, we found that LSM14b was essential for oocyte meiotic maturation. Lack of LSM14b caused oocyte meiotic arrest at metaphase, and misalignment of chromosomes, as well as abnormal spindle assembly checkpoint (SAC) and maturation promoting factor (MPF) activation. Cyclin B1 and Cdc20 mRNAs, whose contents changed with LSM14b expression, were likely direct targets of LSM14b...

The malignant transformation of astrocytoma may result from the accumulation of multiple genetic alterations. Current research shows that diffuse astrocytoma (AIIs, WHO grade II) is inherently predisposed to recur locally, and to spontaneously progress to anaplastic astrocytoma (AAIIIs, WHO grade III) and eventually secondary glioblastoma (sGBMIVs, WHO grade IV). The aim of the study was to identify and validate the important gene(s) associated with malignant progression and poor prognosis of astrocytoma. Average expression levels of 82 samples (35 AIIs, 13 AAIIIs and 34 sGBMIVs) were compared to each other through no-paired student test...

PURPOSE OF THE STUDY: Reduced levels of the tumor suppressor protein CCDC6 sensitize cancer cells to the treatment with PARP-inhibitors. The turnover of CCDC6 protein is regulated by the de-ubiquitinase USP7, which also controls the androgen receptor (AR) stability. Here, we correlated the expression levels of CCDC6 and USP7 proteins in primary prostate cancers (PC). Moreover, we tested the efficacy of the USP7 inhibitors, in combination with PARP-inhibitors as a novel therapeutic option in advanced prostate cancer...

PP2A comprising B56 regulatory subunit isoforms (PP2A(B56)) is a serine/threonine phosphatase essential for mitosis. At the kinetochore, PP2A(B56) both stabilizes microtubule binding and promotes silencing of the spindle assembly checkpoint (SAC) through its association with the SAC protein BubR1. Cells depleted of the B56 regulatory subunits of PP2A are delayed in activation of Cdc20-containing APC/C (APC/C(Cdc20)), which is an essential step for mitotic exit. It has been hypothesized that this delay arises from increased production of the mitotic checkpoint complex (MCC), an APC/C(Cdc20) inhibitor formed at unattached kinetochores through SAC signaling...

BACKGROUND: Anaphase promoting complex (APC) is the biggest Cullin-RING E3 ligase and is very important in cell cycle control; many anti-cancer agents target this. APC controls the onset of chromosome separation and mitotic exit through securin and cyclin B degradation, respectively. Its APC3 subunit identifies the APC activators-Cdh1 and Cdc20. MATERIALS AND METHODS: The structural model of the APC3 subunit of APC was developed by means of computational techniques; the binding of a natural inhibitory compound to APC3 was also investigated...

During mitosis, cells must segregate the replicated copies of their genome to their daughter cells with extremely high fidelity. Segregation errors lead to an abnormal chromosome number (aneuploidy), which typically results in disease or cell death [1]. Chromosome segregation and anaphase onset are initiated through the action of the multi-subunit E3 ubiquitin ligase known as the anaphase-promoting complex or cyclosome (APC/C [2]). The APC/C is inhibited by the spindle checkpoint in the presence of kinetochore attachment defects [3, 4]...

The mitotic checkpoint is a cellular safeguard that prevents chromosome missegregation in eukaryotic cells [1, 2]. Suboptimal functioning may foster chromosome missegregation in cancer cells [3]. Checkpoint signaling produces the "mitotic checkpoint complex" (MCC), which prevents anaphase by targeting Cdc20, the activator of the anaphase-promoting complex/cyclosome (APC/C). Recent biochemical and structural studies revealed that the human MCC binds two Cdc20 molecules, one (Cdc20(M)) through well-characterized, cooperative binding to Mad2 and Mad3/BubR1 (forming the "core MCC") and the other one (Cdc20(A)) through additional binding sequences in Mad3/BubR1 [4-6]...

Cell cycle arrest can be imposed by inactivating the anaphase promoting complex (APC). In S. cerevisiae this arrest has been reported to stabilize a metaphase-like intermediate in which the nuclear envelope spans the bud neck, while chromatin repeatedly translocates between the mother and bud domains. The present investigation was undertaken to learn how other features of nuclear organization are affected upon depletion of the APC activator, Cdc20. We observe that the spindle pole bodies and the spindle repeatedly translocate across the narrow orifice at the level of the neck...

INTRODUCTION: Hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC) is the most common liver malignancy, and ranks the fifth most prevalent malignant tumors worldwide. In general, HCC are detected until the disease is at an advanced stage and may miss the best chance for treatment. Thus, elucidating the molecular mechanisms is critical to clinical diagnosis and treatment for HCC. The purpose of this study was to identify dysregulated pathways of great potential functional relevance in the progression of HCC...

REVIEW
Maria Kapanidou, Natalie L Curtis, Victor M Bolanos-Garcia
Cell-division cycle protein 20 homologue (Cdc20) has important functions in chromosome segregation and mitotic exit. Cdc20 is the target of the spindle assembly checkpoint (SAC) and a key cofactor of the anaphase-promoting complex or cyclosome (APC/C) E3 ubiquitin ligase, thus regulating APC/C ubiquitin activity on specific substrates for their subsequent degradation by the proteasome. Here we discuss the roles of Cdc20 in SAC signalling and mitotic exit, describe how the integration of traditional approaches with emerging technologies has revealed new details of Cdc20 functions, comment about the potential of Cdc20 as a therapeutic target for the treatment of human malignancies, and discuss recent advances and controversies in the mechanistic understanding of the control of chromosome segregation during cell division...
