  • Molecular basis of flexible peptide recognition by an antibody
    • Authors: Makabe K.
      Pages: 343 - 345
      Abstract: Antibodies can recognize various types of antigens with high specificity and affinity and peptide is one of their major targets. Understanding an antibody’s molecular recognition mechanism for peptide is important for developing clones with a higher specificity and affinity. Here, the author reviews recent progresses in flexible peptide recognition by an antibody using several biophysical techniques, including X-ray crystallography, molecular dynamics simulations and calorimetric measurements. A set of two reports highlight the importance of intramolecular hydrogen bonds that form in an unbound flexible state. Such intramolecular hydrogen bonds restrict the fluctuation of the peptide and reduce the conformational entropy, resulting in the destabilization of the unbound state and increasing the binding affinity by increasing the free energy change. These detailed analyses will aid in the antibody design in the future.

  • Tactics of cancer invasion: solitary and collective invasion
    • Authors: Nagai T; Ishikawa T, Minami Y, et al.
      Pages: 347 - 355
      Abstract: Much attention has been paid on the mechanism of cancer invasion from the viewpoint of the behaviour of individual cancer cells. On the other hand, histopathological analyses of specimens from cancer patients and of cancer invasion model animals have revealed that cancer cells often exhibit collective invasion, characterized by sustained cell-to-cell adhesion and polarized invasion as cell clusters. Interestingly, it has recently become evident that during collective invasion of cancer cells, the cells localized at invasion front (leader cells) and the cells following them (follower cells) exhibit distinct cellular characteristics, and that there exist the cells expressing representative proteins related to both epithelial and mesenchymal properties simultaneously, designated as hybrid epithelial-to-mesenchymal transition (EMT)-induced cells, in cancer tissue. Furthermore, the findings that cells adopted in hybrid EMT state form clusters and show collective invasion in vitro emphasize an importance of hybrid EMT-induced cells in collective cancer invasion. In this article, we overview recent findings of the mechanism underlying collective invasion of cancer cells and discuss the possibility of controlling cancer invasion and metastasis by targeting this process.

  • LncRNA DLGAP1-AS2 modulates glioma development by up-regulating YAP1
    • Authors: Miao W; Li N, Gu B, et al.
      Pages: 411 - 418
      Abstract: LncRNA DLGAP1 antisense RNA 2 (DLGAP1-AS2) is one kind cytoplasmic long non-coding RNA; however, there is rarely little information about its function in physiological process. Here, we demonstrated that LncRNA DLGAP1-AS2 was up-regulated in glioma and was quite correlated with poor prognosis of glioma patients. Depletion of DLGAP1-AS2 in glioma cells could inhibit cell proliferation and cell migration, and induce cell apoptosis, resulting in the suppression of the progression of glioma consequently. Furthermore, knockdown of DLGAP1-AS2 inhibited the growth of xenograft glioma tumour in vivo as well. Finally, we verified Yes Associated Protein 1 (YAP1) was the downstream target of DLGAP1-AS2 and DLGAP1-AS2 modulated glioma cell proliferation, migration and apoptosis via regulating YAP1. Our study revealed novel mechanism about how did lncRNA DLGAP1-AS2 execute function in glioma and thus provided potential therapeutic interventions for the treatment of glioma.

  • Reaction of threonine synthase with the substrate analogue
           2-amino-5-phosphonopentanoate: implications into the proton transfer at
           the active site
    • Authors: Machida Y; Murakawa T, Sakai A, et al.
      Pages: 357 - 364
      Abstract: Threonine synthase catalyses the conversion of O-phospho-l-homoserine and a water molecule to l-threonine and has the most complex catalytic mechanism among the pyridoxal 5′-phosphate-dependent enzymes. In order to study the less-characterized earlier stage of the catalytic reaction, we studied the reaction of threonine synthase with 2-amino-5-phosphonopentanoate, which stops the catalytic reaction at the enamine intermediate. The global kinetic analysis of the triphasic spectral changes showed that, in addition to the theoretically expected pathway, the carbanion is rapidly reprotonated at Cα to form an aldimine distinct from the external aldimine directly formed from the Michaelis complex. The Kd for the binding of inhibitor to the enzyme decreased with increasing pH, showing that the 2-amino-group-unprotonated form of the ligand binds to the enzyme. On the other hand, the rate constants for the proton migration steps within the active site are independent of the solvent pH, indicating that protons are shared by the active dissociative groups and are not exchanged with the solvent during the course of catalysis. This gives an insight into the role of the phosphate group of the substrate, which may increase the basicity of the ε-amino group of the catalytic lysine residue in the active site.

      Abstract: Aerobic glycolysis was closely associated with the malignant transformation and prognosis of tumours. miR-206 was found to be downregulated in several cancers. However, whether miR-206 functions in non-small-cell lung cancers (NSCLCs) via the process of aerobic glycolysis remains poorly characterized. Quantitative real-time PCR was performed to detect miR-206 level in NSCLC cells and tissues. The effect of miR-206 on hexokinase 2 (HK2) expression was examined through miR-206 overexpression or miR-206 knockdown. CCK-8 assay and colony formation assay were carried out to explore the role of miR-206 on cell proliferation and colony formation, respectively. The relationship between miR-206 and HK2 was measured by dual-luciferase reporter assay. Glucose consumption, lactate production assay and ATP generation were performed in NSCLC cells following miR-206 and HK2 overexpression. We found that miR-206 was downregulated in NSCLC tissues and cells. miR-206 overexpression downregulated the expression of HK2 via targeting HK2 3′UTR in NSCLC cells. In addition, miR-206 decreased the cell viability and colony formation in NSCLC cells. Furthermore, miR-206 reduced glucose uptake, lactate production and ATP generation in NSCLC cells via HK2 repression. In conclusion, these findings suggested that miR-206 regulated NSCLC cell aerobic glycolysis by targeting HK2.

  • TXNIP induced by MondoA, rather than ChREBP, suppresses cervical cancer
           cell proliferation, migration and invasion
    • Authors: Zhang J; Tian X, Yin H, et al.
      Pages: 371 - 377
      Abstract: Evidence has indicated the associations between thioredoxin-interacting protein (TXNIP) and cancers. However, the role of TXNIP in cervical cancer remains unclear. Hence, this study aims to investigate the role of TXNIP in regulating cervical cancer cell proliferation, migration and invasion. TXNIP expression can be regulated by either MondoA or ChREBP in a cell- or tissue- dependent manner. Thus, we also explored whether TXNIP expression in cervical cancer can be regulated by MondoA or ChREBP. Our results showed that TXNIP expression was decreased in cervical cancer cells (HeLa, SiHa, CaSki, MS751, C-33A). Furthermore, TXNIP overexpression inhibited cell proliferation, migration and invasion in HeLa cells, whereas TXNIP silencing exerted the opposite effect in C-33A cells. Moreover, TXNIP expression could be induced by MondoA, rather than ChREBP in HeLa cells. Additionally, MondoA overexpression inhibited cell proliferation, migration and invasion through upregulating TXNIP in HeLa cells. In summary, TXNIP induced by MondoA, rather than ChREBP, suppresses cervical cancer cell proliferation, migration and invasion. Our findings provide new ideas for the prevention and treatment of cervical cancer.

  • lncRNA CCAT1/miR-490-3p/MAPK1/c-Myc positive feedback loop drives
           progression of acute myeloid leukaemia
    • Authors: Wang C; Chen F, Fan Z, et al.
      Pages: 379 - 388
      Abstract: Acute myeloid leukaemia (AML) is a frequently diagnosed malignancy in adults. Long non-coding RNA (lncRNA) colon cancer-associated transcript 1 (CCAT1) has been well known to play vital roles in multiple malignancies including AML. Unfortunately, the detailed mechanism of CCAT1 in AML progression remains obscure. In this study, we demonstrated that CCAT1 was up-regulated in AML samples while its target, miR-490-3p, was relatively down-regulated. CCAT1 markedly increased viability and metastasis of AML cells, while miR-490-3p had opposite effects. CCAT1 could specifically bind to miR-490-3p and reduce its expression and activity, and MAPK1 was a target gene of miR-490-3p. Overexpressed CCAT1 could induce MAPK1 expression and c-Myc reciprocally increased CCAT1 expression. Our data implied that miR-490-3p could be a novel therapeutic target for AML, and highlights the crucial role of CCAT1/miR-490-3p/MAPK1/c-Myc positive feedback loop in AML progression.

  • Characterization of PomA periplasmic loop and sodium ion entering in
           stator complex of sodium-driven flagellar motor
    • Authors: Nishikino T; Iwatsuki H, Mino T, et al.
      Pages: 389 - 398
      Abstract: The bacterial flagellar motor is a rotary nanomachine driven by ion flow. The flagellar stator complex, which is composed of two proteins, PomA and PomB, performs energy transduction in marine Vibrio. PomA is a four transmembrane (TM) protein and the cytoplasmic region between TM2 and TM3 (loop2–3) interacts with the rotor protein FliG to generate torque. The periplasmic regions between TM1 and TM2 (loop1–2) and TM3 and TM4 (loop3–4) are candidates to be at the entrance to the transmembrane ion channel of the stator. In this study, we purified the stator complex with cysteine replacements in the periplasmic loops and assessed the reactivity of the protein with biotin maleimide (BM). BM easily modified Cys residues in loop3–4 but hardly labelled Cys residues in loop1–2. We could not purify the plug deletion stator (ΔL stator) composed of PomBΔ41–120 and WT-PomA but could do the ΔL stator with PomA-D31C of loop1–2 or with PomB-D24N of TM. When the ion channel is closed, PomA and PomB interact strongly. When the ion channel opens, PomA interacts less tightly with PomB. The plug and loop1–2 region regulate this activation of the stator, which depends on the binding of sodium ion to the D24 residue of PomB.

  • A monoclonal antibody recognizing a new epitope on CD81 inhibits T-cell
           migration without inducing cytokine production
    • Authors: Hasezaki T; Yoshima T, Mattsson M, et al.
      Pages: 399 - 409
      Abstract: CD81 is involved in leukocyte migration and cytokine induction. Previous work found that anti-CD81 monoclonal antibodies (mAbs) showed therapeutic potential for several immune diseases via inhibiting leukocyte migration. Although the suppression of cell migration is a promising approach for treating immune diseases, some anti-CD81 mAbs can induce cytokine production, which may exacerbate disease. To obtain new anti-human CD81 mAbs that inhibited migration in the absence of cytokine production enhancement activity, we screened a human single chain variable fragment by phage library. One of the new anti-CD81 mAbs isolated, DSP-8250, had equivalent inhibitory cell migration activity with the established anti-CD81 mAb 5A6, but it lacked cytokine induction activity. These mAbs recognized different epitopes on CD81. mAb 5A6, which had inhibitory activity on T-cell migration and increased cytokine production, bound to three residues, Ser179, Asn180 and Phe186 of CD81. In contrast, DSP-8250, which had inhibitory activity on T-cell migration but no cytokine enhancement activity, bound to four residues, His151, Ala164, Ser168 and Asn172 of CD81 as a unique epitope. These results indicate that the set of His151, Ala164, Ser168 and Asn172 forms a novel epitope that might make the application of anti-CD81 mAb therapeutically useful.

  • Biochemical and structural analyses of the nucleosome containing human
           histone H2A.J
    • Authors: Tanaka H; Sato S, Koyama M, et al.
      Pages: 419 - 427
      Abstract: Histone H2A.J, a histone H2A variant conserved in mammals, may function in the expression of genes related to inflammation and cell proliferation. In the present study, we purified the human histone H2A.J variant and found that H2A.J is efficiently incorporated into the nucleosome in vitro. H2A.J formed the stable nucleosome, which accommodated the DNA ends. Mutations in the H2A.J-specific residues did not affect the nucleosome stability, although the mutation of the H2A.J Ala40 residue, which is conserved in some members of the canonical H2A class, reduced the nucleosome stability. Consistently, the crystal structure of the H2A.J nucleosome revealed that the H2A.J-specific residues, including the Ala40 residue, did not affect the nucleosome structure. These results provide basic information for understanding the function of the H2A.J nucleosome.
