  • Lentiviral-Mediated Beclin-1 Overexpression Inhibits Cell Proliferation
           and Induces Autophagy of Human Esophageal Carcinoma Eca109 Cell Xenograft
           in Nude Mice
    • Abstract: Background: Esophageal carcinoma is one of the common malignant tumors in digestive tract. BECLIN-1 is a key gene that regulates autophagy, and its abnormal expression may be related with many human tumors. However, the mechanism of BECLIN-1 in esophageal carcinoma remains unknown. Objective: In this study, we explored the effect of BECLIN-1 overexpression on tumor growth in mice with esophageal carcinoma and its mechanism. Methods: Recombined lentiviral vector containing BECLIN-1 was used to transfect human esophageal carcinoma Eca109 cells and establish stable cell line. qRT-PCR was used to detect BECLIN-1 mRNA level in the transfected Eca109 cells, CCK-8 assay was used to detect cell proliferation. Beclin-1, P62 and LC3-II protein expression levels in Eca109 cells were detected using Western blot analysis. Subcutaneous xenograft nude mice model of human esophageal carcinoma was established, and the tumor growths in Beclin-1 group, control group and empty vector group were monitored. Beclin-1 protein expression in vivo was detected by immunohistochemistry. Results: Beclin-1 mRNA and protein were overexpressed in Eca109 cells. Compared with empty vector group, the growth rate of cells transfected with BECLIN-1 decreased significantly. Compared with the control group and empty vector group, the expression level of P62 protein in beclin-1 group was significantly decreased, while the expression level of LC3-II protein was significantly increased. The tumor growth rate in nude mice of Beclin-1 group was significantly lower than that of the control group and empty vector group, and Beclin-1 protein was mainly expressed in Beclin-1 group in vivo. Conclusion: BECLIN-1 can induce autophagy in esophageal carcinoma Eca109 cells, and it can significantly inhibit the growth of esophageal carcinoma.

  • Feasibility of Repurposing Clioquinol for Cancer Therapy
    • Abstract: Background: Cancer is a prevalent disease in the world and is becoming more widespread as time goes on. Advanced and more effective chemotherapeutics need to be developed for the treatment of cancer to keep up with this prevalence. Repurposing drugs is an alternative to discover new chemotherapeutics. Clioquinol is currently being studied for reposition as an anti-cancer drug. Objective: This study aimed to summarize the anti-cancer effects of clioquinol and its derivatives through a detailed literature and patent review and to review their potential re-uses in cancer treatment. Methods: Research articles were collected through a PubMed database search using the keywords “Clioquinol” and “Cancer.” The keywords “Clioquinol Derivatives” and “Clioquinol Analogues” were also used on a PubMed database search to gather research articles on clioquinol derivatives. Patents were gathered through a Google Patents database search using the keywords “Clioquinol” and “Cancer.” Results: Clioquinol acts as a copper and zinc ionophore, a proteasome inhibitor, an anti-angiogenesis agent, and is an inhibitor of key signal transduction pathways responsible for its growth-inhibitory activity and cytotoxicity in cancer cells preclinically. A clinical trial conducted by Schimmer et al., resulted in poor outcomes that prompted studies on alternative clioquinol-based applications, such as new combinations, new delivery methods, or new clioquinol-derived analogues. In addition, numerous patents claim alternative uses of clioquinol for cancer therapy. Conclusion: Clioquinol exhibits anti-cancer activities in many cancer types, preclinically. Low therapeutic efficacy in a clinical trial has prompted new studies that aim to discover more effective clioquinol- based cancer therapies.

  • Novel Selective Histone Deacetylase 6 (HDAC6) Inhibitors: A Patent Review
    • Abstract: Background: Many human diseases are associated with dysregulation of HDACs. HDAC6 exhibits deacetylase activity not only to histone protein but also to non-histone proteins such as α- tubulin, HSP90, cortactin, and peroxiredoxin. These unique functions of HDAC6 have gained significant attention in the medicinal chemistry community in recent years. Thus a great deal of effort has devoted to developing selective HDAC6 inhibitors for therapy with the hope to minimize the side effects caused by pan-HDAC inhibition. Objective: The review intends to analyze the structural feature of the scaffolds, to provide useful information for those who are interested in this field, as well as to spark the future design of the new inhibitors. Methods: The primary tool used for patent searching is SciFinder. All patents are retrieved from the following websites: the World Intellectual Property Organization (WIPO®), the United States Patent Trademark Office (USPTO®), Espacenet®, and Google Patents. The years of patents covered in this review are between 2016 and 2019. Results: Thirty-six patents from seventeen companies/academic institutes were classified into three categories based on the structure of ZBG: hydroxamic acid, 1,3,4-oxadiazole, and 1,2,4-oxadiazole. ZBG connects to the cap group through a linker. The cap group can tolerate different functional groups, including amide, urea, sulfonamide, sulfamide, etc. The cap group appears to modulate the selectivity of HDAC6 over other HDAC subtypes. Conclusion: Selectively targeting HDAC6 over other subtypes represents two fold advantages: it maximizes the pharmacological effects and minimizes the side effects seen in pan-HDAC inhibitors. Many small molecule selective HDAC6 inhibitors have advanced to clinical studies in recent years. We anticipate the approval of selective HDAC6 inhibitors as therapeutic agents in the near future.

  • SOX4 Serves an Oncogenic Role in the Tumourigenesis of Human Breast
           Adenocarcinoma by Promoting Cell Proliferation, Migration and Inhibiting
    • Abstract: Background: Breast cancer is among the most common malignant cancers worldwide, and breast adenocarcinoma in glandular tissue cells has excessive metastasis and invasion capability. However, little is known on the molecular process by which this disease develops and progresses. Objective: In this study, we explored the effects of sex-determining region Y-box 4 (SOX4) protein on proliferation, migration, apoptosis and tumourigenesis of breast adenocarcinoma and its possible mechanisms. Methods: The SOX4 overexpression or knockdown Michigan Cancer Foundation-7 (MCF-7) cell lines were established. Among the SOX4 overexpression or MCF-7 knockdown cell lines, proliferation, migration ability and apoptosis rate were detected. The expression levels of apoptosis-related proteins (Bax and Cleaved caspase-3) were analysed using Western blot. The effect of SOX4 on tumourigenesis was analysed using the clone formation assay in vitro and tumour xenograft experiment in nude mice. Results: Compared with the overexpression of control cells, proliferation and migration ability of SOX4 overexpression cells significantly increased, the apoptosis rate significantly decreased in addition to the expression levels of Bax and Cleaved caspase-3 (P < 0.05). Compared with the knockdown of control cells, proliferation and migration ability of SOX4 knockdown cells significantly decreased, and the apoptosis rate and expression levels of Bax and Cleaved caspase-3 significantly increased (P < 0.05). Clone formation and tumour growth abilities of SOX4 overexpression cells were significantly higher than those of the control cells (P < 0.05), whereas SOX4 knockdown cells had the opposite effect. Conclusion: SOX4 plays an oncogenic role in breast adenocarcinoma tumourigenesis by promoting cell proliferation, migration and inhibiting apoptosis. It can be used as a potential molecular target for breast cancer gene therapy.

  • Increased NID1 Expression among Breast Cancer Lung Metastatic Women; A
           Comparative Analysis between Naive and Treated Cases
    • Abstract: Background: Lungs are the second most common reported site of distant metastasis in Breast cancer after bone. Mostly the studies were conducted in cell lines and animal model. To date, there is no blood biomarker reported that could determine the breast cancer progression in terms of lung metastasis. Objective: The aim of this study is to determine Nidogen-1 (NID1)’s mRNA and protein expressions in non-invasive blood samples of breast cancer, in early (II) and lung metastasis advanced stages (III & IV) of naive and treated groups. To determine the functional association of NID1, we employed an in silico analysis, STRING database version 11. Methods: A total of n = 175 cases of breast cancer were recruited in our study. Real time quantitative PCR and ELISA were performed to analyze the mRNA and protein expressions of NID1 respectively. An in silico method is also used to assess NID1’s interactome. Some significant patents related to this topic were also studied and discussed in this research paper. Results: The results show high levels of NID1’s mRNA in the naive group (Group A) as compared to treated group (Group B). Similar trend of increased NID1’s protein expressions was also observed among naive and treated groups, respectively. Our results also show the significant impact of treatment on NID1’s gene and protein expressions. In silico analysis has revealed the functional association of NID1 with its different interactome protein partners. Conclusion: The increased expression of NID1 in early to advanced naive as compared to the treated groups with lung metastasis makes it a promising marker which has pro-metastatic role in breast cancer.

  • Expression of B Cell Translocation Gene 1 Protein in Colon Carcinoma and
           its Clinical Significance
    • Abstract: Background: Colon cancer is one of the most common malignant tumors, and B cell Translocation Gene (BTG)1 is involved in the occurrence and development of colon cancer, however, the underlying molecular mechanism remains unclear. Objective: In this study, we investigated the expression of BTG1 protein in colon cancer, and its association with clinicopathology and prognosis. Methods: The tumor specimens from 59 patients with colon cancer who had undergone radical colectomy were selected as the observation group. Para-carcinoma tissues from the same patients were selected as the control group. The expressions of BTG1 mRNA and protein in the specimen of two groups were analyzed by quantitative Real-Time Polymerase Chain Reaction (qRT-PCR) and Western blot. According to the immunohistochemical results, the patients were divided into BTG1-negative and BTG1-positive groups. The postoperative cumulative survival rate in the two groups was analyzed. The association of the expression of BTG1 protein with the clinicopathological features and postoperative survival was investigated. Results: Compared with the control group, the expression levels of BTG1 mRNA and BTG1 protein were significantly decreased in the observation group (P < 0.05). Immunohistochemical analysis revealed that there were 12 positive tumor samples and 47 negative samples. The expression of BTG1 was negatively associated with the degree of differentiation and lymphatic metastasis. The cumulative survival rate of BTG1-positive patients was significantly increased compared with that of BTG1- negative patients (P < 0.05). Stepwise Cox regression analysis showed that lymphatic metastasis, tumor size and BTG1 expression level were independent prognostic factors for overall survival in patients with colon cancer. Conclusion: BTG1 protein in colon cancer tissues were expressed at low levels, which was associated with the clinicopathological features, postoperative recurrence and survival of patients.
