  • TGF-β signaling in cancer
    • Authors: Gu S; Feng X.
      Pages: 941 - 949
      Abstract: AbstractSignals from the transforming growth factor-β (TGF-β) superfamily mediate a broad spectrum of cellular processes and are deregulated in many diseases, including cancer. TGF-β signaling has dual roles in tumorigenesis. In the early phase of tumorigenesis, TGF-β has tumor suppressive functions, primarily through cell cycle arrest and apoptosis. However, in the late stage of cancer, TGF-β acts as a driver of tumor progression and metastasis by increasing tumor cell invasiveness and migration and promoting chemo-resistance. Here, we briefly review the mechanisms and functions of TGF-β signaling during tumor progression and discuss the therapeutic potentials of targeting the TGF-β pathway in cancer.

  • Long non-coding RNA H19 contributes to hypoxia-induced CPC injury by
           suppressing Sirt1 through miR-200a-3p
    • Authors: Li L; Wang Q, Yuan Z, et al.
      Pages: 950 - 959
      Abstract: AbstractCardiomyocyte death is the chief obstacle that prevents the heart function recovery in myocardial infarction (MI)-induced heart failure (HF). Cardiac progenitor cells (CPCs)-based myocardial regeneration has provided a promising method for heart function recovery after MI. However, CPCs can easily lose their proliferation ability due to oxygen deficiency in infarcted myocardium. Revealing the underlying molecular mechanism for CPC proliferation is critical for effective MI therapy. In the present study, we set up a CoCl2-induced hypoxia model in CPCs. We found that the expression of long non-coding RNA H19 was significantly down-regulated in CPCs after hypoxia stimuli. In addition, H19 suppression attenuated the proliferation and migration of CPCs under hypoxia stress. Furthermore, we discovered that H19 regulated the proliferation and migration of CPCs through mediating the expression of Sirt1 which is a target of miR-200a-3p under hypoxia. In conclusion, our findings demonstrate a novel regulatory mechanism for the proliferation and migration of CPCs under hypoxia condition, which provides useful information for the development of new therapeutic targets for MI therapy.

  • Knockdown of LGALS12 inhibits porcine adipocyte adipogenesis via
           PKA–Erk1/2 signaling pathway
    • Authors: Wu W; Yin Y, Xu K, et al.
      Pages: 960 - 967
      Abstract: AbstractIncreasing intramuscular (IM) fat while concomitantly decreasing subcutaneous (SC) fat content is one major goal of pig breeding. Identifying genes involved in lipid metabolism is critical for this goal. Galectin-12 (LGALS12) has been proven to be an important regulator of fat deposition in mouse models; however, the effect and regulatory mechanisms of LGALS12 on porcine adipogenesis are still unknown. In this study, the effects of LGALS12 on fat deposition were explored with primary culture of porcine SC and IM adipocytes. Analysis of LGALS12 expression across different tissues revealed that LGALS12 was predominantly expressed in adipose tissue. The LGALS12 expression patterns across stages of adipocyte differentiation were also evaluated, with differences observed between SC and IM fat. Small interfering RNA (siRNA) of LGALS12 was designed and transfected into porcine adipocytes derived from SC and IM fat. After transfection, the expression level of LGALS12 was significantly reduced, and the number of lipid droplets was reduced in adipocytes from both SC and IM fat. Simultaneously, the levels of adipogenic markers, including PPARγ and aP2, were decreased, whereas hydrolysis markers, including adipose triglyceride lipase (ATGL) and hormone-sensitive lipase (HSL), were increased. Furthermore, the activation of lipolysis signals, such as the phosphorylation of PKA and Erk1/2, were observed with LGALS12 knockdown in terminally differentiated adipocytes from both SC and IM sources. Taken together, these results suggest that LGALS12 knockdown can inhibit adipogenesis of porcine adipocytes by downregulating lipogenic genes and activating the PKA–Erk1/2 signaling pathway.

  • Fam198a, a member of secreted kinase, secrets through caveolae biogenesis
    • Authors: Wei Z; Liu T, Lei J, et al.
      Pages: 968 - 975
      Abstract: AbstractFam198a is a member of four-jointed protein kinases, a secreted protein kinase family. It was identified as a caveolae-associated protein and colocalized with cavin-1 and caveolin-1 in both tissues and cells. The newly synthesized Fam198a precursor in endoplasmic reticulum (ER) was transported by caveolae biogenesis vesicles to Golgi apparatus in which it was proteolytically cleaved into the secreted mature form. The amino acid mutation analysis identified Arg 120 and 437 as the proteolytic sites in Fam198a precursor during maturation. In mouse embryo fibroblasts (MEFs) obtained from cavin-1−/− or caveolin-1−/− mice, Fam198a precursor was retained in ER and no mature Fam198a could be formed in these cells. Ectopic expression of exogenous cavin-1 in cavin-1−/− MEFs restored the blocked Fam198a post-translational process and secretion. Cavin-1 was also required for Fam198a secretion after its maturation in Golgi apparatus. Ectopic expression of cavin-1 in A549 cells restored the blocked Fam198a secretion. These results suggest that protein secretion is an important function for caveolae biogenesis pathway and the disruption of caveolae system will affect those functions played by the secreted proteins.

  • Insulin-like growth factor 1 receptor signaling regulates embryonic
           epicardial cell proliferation through focal adhesion kinase pathway
    • Authors: Yan Y; Qin Q, Wu L, et al.
      Pages: 976 - 983
      Abstract: AbstractEmbryonic epicardial cells (EPCs) can facilitate cardiomyocyte growth through secreting several essential growth factors, and participate in cardiac development through auto-differentiating into many cardiac cell lineages. Proper proliferation of EPCs is the precondition of these functions, so it is quite necessary to explore the mechanisms involving in EPC proliferation. In this study, we aimed to explore whether insulin-like growth factor 1 receptor (IGF1R) signaling participated in regulating the proliferation of EPCs. Our results showed that the expressions of IGF1R and its ligands IGF1 and IGF2 can be clearly spotted on the epicardium layer from E11.5d to E17.5d. Inhibition of IGF1R signaling using picropodophyllin or NVP-AEW541 significantly decreased the proliferation activity and blocked the cell cycle progression of epicardial cells in vitro. On the contrary, activating IGF1R with recombinant IGF1 and IGF2 promoted epicardial cell proliferation and cell cycle. We also found that decreased expression and phosphorylation of FAK in IGF1R inhibitor-treated cells and use of FAK inhibitor Y15 could significantly inhibit the IGFs-induced EPC proliferation. In conclusion, our results suggest that IGF1R signaling plays an important role in regulating EPC proliferation, and this effect may be mediated by FAK pathway.

  • Tafa-2 plays an essential role in neuronal survival and neurobiological
           function in mice
    • Authors: Wang X; Shen C, Chen X, et al.
      Pages: 984 - 995
      Abstract: AbstractTafa is a family of small secreted proteins with conserved cysteine residues and restricted expression in the brain. It is composed of five highly homologous genes referred to as Tafa-1 to -5. Among them, Tafa-2 is identified as one of the potential genes responsible for intellectual deficiency in a patient with mild mental retardation. To investigate the biological function of Tafa-2 in vivo, Tafa-2 knockout mice were generated. The mutant mice grew and developed normally but exhibited impairments in spatial learning and memory in Morris water maze test and impairments in short- and long-term memory in novel object recognition test, accompanied with increased level of anxiety-like behaviors in open-field test and elevated plus maze test, and decreased level of depression-like behaviors in forced-swim test and tail-suspension test. Further examinations revealed that Tafa-2 deficiency causes severe neuronal reduction and increased apoptosis in the brain of Tafa-2−/− mice via downregulation of PI3K/Akt and MAPK/Erk pathways. Conformably, the expression levels of CREB target genes including BDNF, c-fos and NF1, and CBP were found to be reduced in the brain of Tafa-2−/− mice. Taken together, our data indicate that Tafa-2 may function as a neurotrophic factor essential for neuronal survival and neurobiological functions.

  • LncRNA-HOTAIR inhibition aggravates oxidative stress-induced H9c2 cells
           injury through suppression of MMP2 by miR-125
    • Authors: Li L; Zhang M, Chen W, et al.
      Pages: 996 - 1006
      Abstract: AbstractAcute myocardial infarction (AMI) is one of the major causes of morbidity and mortality in the world. Ischemia/reperfusion (I/R) injury-induced cardiomyocytes death is the main obstacle that limits the heart function recovery of the AMI patients. Reactive oxygen species (ROS) generated by mitochondria is the main pathological stimulus of cardiomyocytes death during heart I/R injury process. Hence, to understand the underlying mechanism of cardioymocytes proliferation and apoptosis under oxidative stress is crucial for effective AMI therapy. In this study, we found that the expression of long non-coding RNA HOTAIR was significantly downregulated in H9c2 cells in response to oxidative stimuli. HOTAIR knockdown further attenuated H9c2 cells proliferation and accelerated H9c2 cells apoptosis in oxidative stress, while HOTAIR overexpression can protect H9c2 cells from oxidative stress-induced injury. Additionally, HOTAIR acted as a sponge for miR-125. MiR-125 inhibitors restored the H9c2 cells proliferation and migration potential after HOTAIR knockdown in oxidative stress. Meanwhile, MMP2 was identified as a target of miR-125. MMP2 knockdown blocked miR-125 inhibitors’ protect effect on H9c2 cells in oxidative stress. Further study demonstrated that HOTAIR inhibition can aggravate oxidative stress-induced H9c2 cells injury through HOTAIR/miR-125/MMP2 axis. Our finding revealed a novel regulatory mechanism for cardiomyocytes proliferation and apoptosis under oxidative stress conditions, which provided a therapeutic approach for myocardium repair after AMI injury.

  • Cell-free DNA derived from cancer cells facilitates tumor malignancy
           through Toll-like receptor 9 signaling-triggered interleukin-8 secretion
           in colorectal cancer
    • Authors: Niu Z; Tang W, Liu T, et al.
      Pages: 1007 - 1017
      Abstract: AbstractCirculating cell-free DNA (cfDNA) has become a potential diagnostic and prognostic biomarker for colorectal cancer (CRC). In non-cancerous diseases, it has been confirmed that cfDNA can be recognized by Toll-like receptor 9 (TLR9), leading to a significant biological change. Nevertheless, the biological significance of cfDNA and its relationship with TLR9 in tumor malignancy is still unclear. Therefore, the purpose of this study is to explore the biological role of cfDNA in colorectal cancer (CRC). The expression of TLR9 was measured in different CRC cell lines and cancerous samples by RT-PCR or immunohistochemistry, which showed that high expression of TLR9 was significantly correlated with the tumor metastasis, advanced TNM stage and poor prognosis of patients. Then, cfDNA was obtained from fluorouracil (5FU)-induced apoptotic cancer cells in vitro and transfection techniques were used to transfect siRNA and cDNA plasmid for TLR9. Cancer cells were stimulated using isolated cfDNA fragments, and results showed that cfDNA could promote colorectal cancer cell proliferation via TLR9. Meanwhile, we demonstrated that the cfDNA binding to TLR9 could facilitate cell migration and invasion. Finally, we demonstrated that cfDNA initiated downstream TLR9-MyD88 signaling and induced robust release of chemokine interleukin 8 (IL-8), which helped to elucidate the mechanisms underlying these phenomena. Our data suggest that cancer cell-derived cfDNA contributes to cancer progression through activation of TLR9-MyD88 signaling and IL-8 secretion in CRC. These findings provide a novel perspective for understanding of tumor progression and provoke a potential therapeutic target for CRC treatment.

  • Trail armed oncolytic poxvirus suppresses lung cancer cell by inducing
    • Authors: Hu J; Wang H, Gu J, et al.
      Pages: 1018 - 1027
      Abstract: AbstractLung cancer has a high morbidity rate worldwide and is often resistant to therapy. Oncolytic virus therapy is a developing trend for cancer treatment. Thus, we constructed an oncolytic poxvirus carrying human trail gene that expresses a membrane-binding tumor necrosis factor and associated apoptosis-inducing ligand (TRAIL, Oncopox-trail). We hypothesized that the expression of trail would increase the efficacy of the oncolytic poxvirus. The effect of the TRAIL protein depends on the death receptors on the surface of different cancer cells. The expression of death receptors in lung cancer cell lines was analyzed by western blot analysis. In vitro, the oncolytic poxvirus carrying the trail gene displayed a better cytotoxicity at the cell level in the lung cancer cell line than that carrying the Oncopox-empty. TRAIL protein mainly induced apoptosis and inhibited necrosis. In vivo, two transplanted tumor models of human A549 lung cancer cells and mouse Lewis lung cancer cells were used to verify the anti-cancer effect of the oncolytic poxvirus carrying the trail gene. TUNEL staining results of the tumor histological sections also verified the anti-cancer effect. Similarly, through systemic administration of Oncopox-trail, the oncolytic poxvirus also exhibited anti-cancer effect.

  • LncRNA HOTAIR mediates TGF-β2-induced cell growth and
           epithelial–mesenchymal transition in human lens epithelial cells
    • Authors: Zhang Z; Zhu H, Liu Y, et al.
      Pages: 1028 - 1037
      Abstract: AbstractPosterior capsule opacification (PCO) results from the proliferation, migration, and epithelial–mesenchymal transition (EMT) of residual lens epithelial cells (LECs) and fibers in the capsular bag. Previous reports have demonstrated that transforming growth factor β2 (TGF-β2) affects the cellular processes via modulation of EMT in LECs. However, the mechanisms that underlie the TGF-β2-induced EMT in LECs are still largely unknown. In this study, we confirmed that TGF-β2 induces EMT in SRA01/04 cells via the up-regulation of the long non-coding RNA (lncRNA) HOTAIR. To study the effects of HOTAIR on the proliferation, migration and EMT of SRA01/04 cells as well as the underlying mechanism, we used small interfering RNA (siRNA) to specifically attenuate HOTAIR expression in SRA01/04 cells. CCK8 cell-counting kit was used to examine SRA01/04 cell viability; EdU cell proliferation kit was used to examine SRA01/04 cell proliferation; Transwell system and scratch assays were used to observe cell migration; and qPCR and western blot analysis were used to evaluate EMT progression. We found that inhibition of HOTAIR expression repressed SRA01/04 cell viability, proliferation, migration and prevented the TGF-β2-induced changes in cellular processes via modulation of EMT. Ultimately, we found that HOTAIR affected the TGF-β/Smad signaling pathway. In summary, we elucidated that HOTAIR affected the cell viability, proliferation, and migration in the TGF-β2-induced EMT in SRA01/04 cells and suggested that modulation of HOTAIR may be helpful in PCO prevention and therapy.

  • RNF34 modulates the mitochondrial biogenesis and exercise capacity in
    • Authors: Wei P; Guo J, Xue W, et al.
      Pages: 1038 - 1046
      Abstract: AbstractThe transcriptional co-activator PGC-1α is a key regulator of mitochondrial function and muscle fiber specification in the skeletal muscle. The E3 ubiquitin ligase RNF34 ubiquitinates PGC-1α and negatively regulates mammalian brown fat cell metabolism. However, the functional importance of RNF34 in the skeletal muscle and its impact on energy metabolism remain unknown. The Drosophila PGC-1 homolog dPGC-1 and its mammalian counterparts have conserved functions in mitochondria and insulin signaling. Here, we showed that the Drosophila RNF34 (dRNF34) ubiquitinates the Drosophila PGC-1α (dPGC-1) and promotes its degradation in HEK293T cells by immunoprecipitation and western blot analysis. This allows us to use Drosophila as a powerful model system to study the physiological role of RNF34 in mitochondrial function and metabolism. In the in vivo studies, by separately expressing two independent UAS-dRNF34 RNAi transgenes driven by the muscle-specific 24B-Gal4 driver, we found that knockdown of dRNF34 specifically in muscle promotes mitochondrial biogenesis, improves negative geotaxis, extends climbing time to exhaustion in moderate aged flies and counteracts high-fat-diet-induced high triglyceride content. Furthermore, we showed that knockdown of dPGC-1 reversed the effects of the dRNF34 knockdown phenotypes described above. Our results reveal that dRNF34 plays an important role in regulating mitochondrial biogenesis in muscle and lipid metabolism through dPGC-1. Thus, inhibition of RNF34 activity provides a potential novel therapeutic strategy for the treatment of age-related muscle dysfunction.

  • LC3-II may mediate ATR-induced mitophagy in dopaminergic neurons through
           SQSTM1/p62 pathway
    • Authors: Ma K; Wu H, Li P, et al.
      Pages: 1047 - 1061
      Abstract: AbstractAtrazine (2-chloro-4-ethylamino-6-isopropylamine-1,3,5-triazine; ATR) has been demonstrated to regulate autophagy- and apoptosis-related proteins in doparminergic neuronal damage. In our study, we investigated the role of LC3-II in ATR-induced degeneration of dopaminergic neurons. In vivo dopaminergic neuron degeneration model was set up with ATR treatment and confirmed by the behavioral responses and pathological analysis. Dopaminergic neuron cells were transfected with LC3-II siRNA and treated with ATR to observe cell survival and reactive oxygen species release. The process of mitochondrial autophagy and the neurotoxic effects of mitochondrial autophagy were detected by immunofluorescence assay, immunohistochemical analysis, real-time PCR, and western blot analysis. Results showed that after ATR treatment, the grip strength of Wistar rats was significantly decreased, and behavioral signs of anxiety were clearly observed. The mRNA and protein levels of tyrosine hydroxylase, LC3-II, PINK1, and Parkin were significantly decreased in ATR-induced rat dopaminergic neurons and PC-12 cells, while the mRNA expression and protein levels of SQSTM1/p62 and Parl were increased. Exposure to ATR also led to accumulation of autophagic lysosomes and autophagic bodies along with significantly decreased levels of dopaminergic neurons and alterations in mitochondrial homeostasis, which was reversed by LC3-II siRNA. Our results suggest that ATR affects the mitochondria-mediated dopaminergic neuronal death, which may be mediated by LC3-II and other autophagy markers in vivo and in vitro through SQSTM1/p62 signaling pathway.

  • Anti-leprosy drug Clofazimine binds to human Raf1 kinase inhibitory
           protein and enhances ERK phosphorylation
    • Authors: Guo C; Chang T, Sun T, et al.
      Pages: 1062 - 1067
      Abstract: AbstractHuman Raf1 kinase inhibitory protein (hRKIP) is an important modulator of the Ras/Raf1/MEK/ERK signaling pathway. Here, we demonstrated that anti-leprosy drug Clofazimine can bind to hRKIP with a significantly stronger affinity than the endogenous substrate phosphatidylethanolamine (PE) by using Biolayer interference technology. Moreover, we identified that residues P74, S75, K80, P111, P112, V177, and P178 play crucial roles in the binding of hRKIP to Clofazimine by using a combination of Nuclear Magnetic Resonance spectroscopy and molecular docking approach. These residues are located at the conserved ligand-binding pocket of hRKIP. Furthermore, we found that 3.2 μM Clofazimine could significantly increase the ERK phosphorylation level by about 37%. Our results indicate that Clofazimine can enhance Ras/Raf1/MEK/ERK signaling transduction pathway via binding to hRKIP. This work provides valuable hints for exploiting Clofazimine as a potential lead compound to efficiently treat the diseases related to RKIP or the Ras/Raf/MEK/ERK pathway.
