RESUMO

Migrating cells move across diverse assemblies of extracellular matrix (ECM) that can be separated by micron-scale gaps. For membranes to protrude and reattach across a gap, actin filaments, which are relatively weak as single filaments, must polymerize outward from adhesion sites to push membranes towards distant sites of new adhesion. Here, using micropatterned ECMs, we identify T-Plastin, one of the most ancient actin bundling proteins, as an actin stabilizer that promotes membrane protrusions and enables bridging of ECM gaps. We show that T-Plastin widens and lengthens protrusions and is specifically enriched in active protrusions where F-actin is devoid of non-muscle myosin II activity. Together, our study uncovers critical roles of the actin bundler T-Plastin to promote protrusions and migration when adhesion is spatially-gapped.

RESUMO

Individual cells detach from cohesive ensembles during development and can inappropriately separate in disease. Although much is known about how cells separate from epithelia, it remains unclear how cells disperse from clusters lacking apical-basal polarity, a hallmark of advanced epithelial cancers. Here, using live imaging of the developmental migration program of Drosophila primordial germ cells (PGCs), we show that cluster dispersal is accomplished by stabilizing and orienting migratory forces. PGCs utilize a G protein coupled receptor (GPCR), Tre1, to guide front-back migratory polarity radially from the cluster toward the endoderm. Posteriorly positioned myosin-dependent contractile forces pull on cell-cell contacts until cells release. Tre1 mutant cells migrate randomly with transient enrichment of the force machinery but fail to separate, indicating a temporal contractile force threshold for detachment. E-cadherin is retained on the cell surface during cell separation and augmenting cell-cell adhesion does not impede detachment. Notably, coordinated migration improves cluster dispersal efficiency by stabilizing cell-cell interfaces and facilitating symmetric pulling. We demonstrate that guidance of inherent migratory forces is sufficient to disperse cell clusters under physiological settings and present a paradigm for how such events could occur across development and disease.

RESUMO

We perform a bidimensional Stokes experiment in an active cellular material: an autonomously migrating monolayer of Madin-Darby canine kidney epithelial cells flows around a circular obstacle within a long and narrow channel, involving an interplay between cell shape changes and neighbor rearrangements. Based on image analysis of tissue flow and coarse-grained cell anisotropy, we determine the tissue strain rate, cell deformation, and rearrangement rate fields, which are spatially heterogeneous. We find that the cell deformation and rearrangement rate fields correlate strongly, which is compatible with a Maxwell viscoelastic liquid behavior (and not with a Kelvin-Voigt viscoelastic solid behavior). The value of the associated relaxation time is measured as τ=70±15 min, is observed to be independent of obstacle size and division rate, and is increased by inhibiting myosin activity. In this experiment, the monolayer behaves as a flowing material with a Weissenberg number close to one which shows that both elastic and viscous effects can have comparable contributions in the process of collective cell migration.

RESUMO

Shear stress induces directed endothelial cell (EC) migration in blood vessels leading to vessel diameter increase and induction of vascular maturation. Other factors, such as EC elongation and interaction between ECs and non-vascular areas are also important. Computational models have previously been used to study collective cell migration. These models can be used to predict EC migration and its effect on vascular remodelling during embryogenesis. We combined live time-lapse imaging of the remodelling vasculature of the quail embryo yolk sac with flow quantification using a combination of micro-Particle Image Velocimetry and computational fluid dynamics. We then used the flow and remodelling data to inform a model of EC migration during remodelling. To obtain the relation between shear stress and velocity in vitro for EC cells, we developed a flow chamber to assess how confluent sheets of ECs migrate in response to shear stress. Using these data as an input, we developed a multiphase, self-propelled particles (SPP) model where individual agents are driven to migrate based on the level of shear stress while maintaining appropriate spatial relationship to nearby agents. These agents elongate, interact with each other, and with avascular agents at each time-step of the model. We compared predicted vascular shape to real vascular shape after 4 hours from our time-lapse movies and performed sensitivity analysis on the various model parameters. Our model shows that shear stress has the largest effect on the remodelling process. Importantly, however, elongation played an especially important part in remodelling. This model provides a powerful tool to study the input of different biological processes on remodelling.

RESUMO

Many complex systems, ranging from migrating cells to animal groups, exhibit stochastic dynamics described by the underdamped Langevin equation. Inferring such an equation of motion from experimental data can provide profound insight into the physical laws governing the system. Here, we derive a principled framework to infer the dynamics of underdamped stochastic systems from realistic experimental trajectories, sampled at discrete times and subject to measurement errors. This framework yields an operational method, Underdamped Langevin Inference, which performs well on experimental trajectories of single migrating cells and in complex high-dimensional systems, including flocks with Viscek-like alignment interactions. Our method is robust to experimental measurement errors, and includes a self-consistent estimate of the inference error.

RESUMO

Experiments and theory have shown that cell monolayers and epithelial tissues exhibit solid-liquid and glass-liquid transitions. These transitions are biologically relevant to our understanding of embryonic development, wound healing, and cancer. Current models of confluent epithelia have focused on the role of cell shape, with less attention paid to cell extrusion, which is key for maintaining homeostasis in biological tissue. Here, we use a multiphase field model to study the solid-liquid transition in a confluent monolayer of deformable cells. Cell overlap is allowed and provides a way for modeling the precursor for extrusion. When cells overlap rather than deform, we find that the melting transition changes from continuous to first order like, and that there is an intermittent regime close to the transition, where solid and liquid states alternate over time. By studying the dynamics of five- and sevenfold disclinations in the hexagonal lattice formed by the cell centers, we observe that these correlate with spatial fluctuations in the cellular overlap, and that cell extrusion tends to initiate near fivefold disclinations.

RESUMO

In mice, experimental influenza virus infection stimulates CD8 T cell infiltration of the airways. Virus is cleared by day 9, and between days 8 and 9 there is an abrupt change in CD8 T cell motility behavior transitioning from low velocity and high confinement on day 8, to high velocity with continued high confinement on day 9. We hypothesized that loss of virus and/or antigen signals in the context of high chemokine levels drives the T cells into a rapid surveillance mode. Virus infection induces chemokine production, which may change when the virus is cleared. We therefore sought to examine this period of rapid changes to the T cell environment in the tissue and seek evidence on the roles of peptide-MHC and chemokine receptor interactions. Experiments were performed to block G protein coupled receptor (GPCR) signaling with Pertussis toxin (Ptx). Ptx treatment generally reduced cell velocities and mildly increased confinement suggesting chemokine mediated arrest (velocity <2 µm/min) (Friedman RS, 2005), except on day 8 when velocity increased and confinement was relieved. Blocking specific peptide-MHC with monoclonal antibody unexpectedly decreased velocities on days 7 through 9, suggesting TCR/peptide-MHC interactions promote cell mobility in the tissue. Together, these results suggest the T cells are engaged with antigen bearing and chemokine producing cells that affect motility in ways that vary with the day after infection. The increase in velocities on day 9 were reversed by addition of specific peptide, consistent with the idea that antigen signals become limiting on day 9 compared to earlier time points. Thus, antigen and chemokine signals act to alternately promote and restrict CD8 T cell motility until the point of virus clearance, suggesting the switch in motility behavior on day 9 may be due to a combination of limiting antigen in the presence of high chemokine signals as the virus is cleared.

RESUMO

PURPOSE: Metastasis is an unavoidable event happened among almost all small cell lung cancer (SCLC) patients. However, the molecular driven factors have not been elucidated. Recently, a novel hydrolase called cell migration inducing hyaluronidase (CEMIP) triggered both migration and invasion in many tumors but not SCLC. Therefore, in this study, we verified that CEMIP promoted migration and invasion in SCLC and applied proteomics analysis to screen out potential target profiles and the signaling pathway related to CEMIP regulation. METHOD: Immunofluorescence was conducted to exam the expression of CEMIP on SCLC and paired adjacent normal tissues among enrollment. RT-qPCR and Western blot (WB) assays were conducted to valuate cellular protein and mRNA expression of CEMIP and EMT markers. Lentivirus-CEMIP-shRNAs and CEMIP plasmid were used for expression manipulating. Changes of cellular migration and invasion were tested through transwell assays. Tandem Mass Tag (TMT) peptide labeling coupled with LC-MS/MS was used for quantifying proteins affected by reducing expression of CEMIP on H446 cells. RESULTS: The expression of CEMIP showed 1.64 ± 0.16-fold higher in SCLC tissues than their normal counterpart. Decreasing the expression of CEMIP on SCLC cells H446 regressed both cellular migration and invasion ability, whereas the promoting cellular migration and invasion was investigated through over-expressing CEMIP on H1688. Proteomic and bioinformatics analysis revealed that total 215 differentially expressed proteins (DEPs) that either their increasing or decreasing relative expression met threshold of 1.2-fold changes with p value ≤ 0.05. The dramatic up-regulated DEPs included an unidentified peptide sequence (encoded by cDNA FLJ52096) SPICE1 and CRYAB, while the expression of S100A6 was largely down-regulated. DEPs mainly enriched on caveolae of cellular component, calcium ion binding of biological process and epithelial cell migration of molecular function. KEGG enrichment indicated that DEPs mainly exerted their function on TGF-ß, GABAergic synapse and MAPK signaling pathway. CONCLUSION: It is the first report illustrating that CEMIP might be one of the metastatic triggers in SCLC. And also, it provided possible molecular mechanism cue and potential downstream target on CEMIP-induced cellular migration and invasion on SCLC.

RESUMO

Diabetic nephropathy (DN) is a serious microvascular complication of diabetes across the world. Recently, many circular RNAs (circRNAs) can exert a crucial role in DN progression. Our investigation was designed to study whether circ_0123996 was associated with DN and aimed to find out the underlying mechanisms. We observed that circ_0123996 expression was significantly increased in Type 2 diabetes (T2D) with DN in comparison to those patients without DN. Consistently, circ_0123996 was also obviously elevated in DN mice models and high glucose (HG)-incubated MMCs. Then, it was proved transfection of circ_0123996 siRNA in mice mesangial cells (MMCs) restrained MMCs proliferation greatly. In addition, it was demonstrated that decrease of circ_0123996 alleviated fibrosis-related protein expression including FN and Col-4 in MMCs. Next, it was confirmed by our study that circ_0123996 can serve as a sponge for miR-149-5p. miR-149-5p has been identified in several diseases including diabetes. At present, we observed that miR-149-5p was decreased in DN. Overexpression of miR-149-5p greatly repressed the effect of circ_0123996 on MMCs. BTB and CNC homology 1 (Bach1) is reported in various disease including some vascular diseases.Here, Bach1 was confirmed as a target of miR-149-5p. Circ_0123996 upregulated Bach1 expression and restrained MMCs proliferation and fibrosis through sponging miR-149-5p. Thus, it was revealed that circ_0123996 was involved in DN via sponging miR-149-5p and modulating Bach1 expression.

RESUMO

OBJECTIVES: Skin serves as the major interface between the external environment and body which is liable to many kinds of injuries. Mesenchymal stem cell (MSC) therapy has been widely used and became a promising strategy. Pre-treatment with chemical agents, hypoxia or gene modifications can partially protect MSCs against injury, and the pre-treated MSCs show the improved differentiation, homing capacity, survival and paracrine effects regard to attenuating injury. The aim of this study was to investigate whether the exosomes from the educated MSCs contribute to accelerate wound healing process. MATERIALS AND METHODS: We extracted the exosomes from the two educated MSCs and utilized them in the cutaneous wound healing model. The pro-angiogenetic effect of exosomes on endothelial cells was also investigated. RESULTS: We firstly found that MSCs pre-treated by exosomes from neonatal serum significantly improved their biological functions and the effect of therapy. Moreover, we extracted the exosomes from the educated MSCs and utilized them to treat the cutaneous wound model directly. We found that the released exosomes from MSCs which educated by neonatal serum before had the more outstanding performance in therapeutic effect. Mechanistically, we revealed that the recipient endothelial cells (ECs) were targeted and the exosomes promoted their functions to enhance angiogenesis via regulating AKT/eNOS pathway. CONCLUSIONS: Our findings unravelled the positive effect of the upgraded exosomes from the educated MSCs as a promising cell-free therapeutic strategy for cutaneous wound healing.

RESUMO

Maintaining intracellular pH is crucial for preserving healthy cellular behavior and, when dysregulated, results in increased proliferation, migration, and invasion. The Na+/H+ exchanger isoform 1 is a highly regulated transmembrane antiporter that maintains pH homeostasis by exporting protons in response to intra- and extracellular signals. Activation of Na+/H+ exchanger isoform 1 is exquisitely regulated by the extracellular environment and protein cofactors, including calcineurin B homologous proteins 1 and 2. While Na+/H+ exchanger isoform 1 and calcineurin B homologous protein 1 are ubiquitously expressed, calcineurin B homologous protein 2 shows tissue-specific expression and upregulation in a variety of cancer cells. In addition, calcineurin B homologous protein 2 expression is modulated by tumorigenic extracellular conditions like low nutrients. To understand the role of calcineurin B homologous protein 2 in tumorigenesis and survival in lung cancer, we surveyed existing databases and formed a comprehensive report of Na+/H+ exchanger isoform 1, calcineurin B homologous protein 1, and calcineurin B homologous protein 2 expression in diseased and non-diseased tissues. We show that calcineurin B homologous protein 2 is upregulated during oncogenesis in many adeno and squamous carcinomas. To understand the functional role of calcineurin B homologous protein 2 upregulation, we evaluated the effect of Na+/H+ exchanger isoform 1 and calcineurin B homologous protein 2 depletion on cellular function during cancer progression in situ. Here, we show that calcineurin B homologous protein 2 functions through Na+/H+ exchanger isoform 1 to effect cell proliferation, cell migration, steady-state pHi, and anchorage-independent tumor growth. Finally, we present evidence that calcineurin B homologous protein 2 depletion in vivo has potential to reduce tumor burden in a xenograft model. Together, these data support the tumor-promoting potential of aberrant calcineurin B homologous protein 2 expression and position calcineurin B homologous protein 2 as a potential therapeutic target for the treatment of non-small cell lung cancer.

RESUMO

Glioblastoma is a deadly cancer, with no effective therapies. Better understanding and identification of selective targets are urgently needed. We found that advillin (AVIL) is overexpressed in all the glioblastomas we tested including glioblastoma stem/initiating cells, but hardly detectable in non-neoplastic astrocytes, neural stem cells or normal brain. Glioma patients with increased AVIL expression have a worse prognosis. Silencing AVIL nearly eradicated glioblastoma cells in culture, and dramatically inhibited in vivo xenografts in mice, but had no effect on normal control cells. Conversely, overexpressing AVIL promoted cell proliferation and migration, enabled fibroblasts to escape contact inhibition, and transformed immortalized astrocytes, supporting AVIL being a bona fide oncogene. We provide evidence that the tumorigenic effect of AVIL is partly mediated by FOXM1, which regulates LIN28B, whose expression also correlates with clinical prognosis. AVIL regulates the cytoskeleton through modulating F-actin, while mutants disrupting F-actin binding are defective in its tumorigenic capabilities.

RESUMO

This study aimed to evaluate the modulatory role of sex-related hormone estradiol on cancer stem cells with the origin of colorectal adenocarcinoma in vitro. Cancer stem cells were incubated with 100 nM estradiol for 48 h. The cell survival rate was analyzed using the MTT assay. Immunocytochemistry staining of Ki-67 and Inhibin and Apoptosis PCR array were done to measure proliferation/apoptosis. Cell migration was monitored via the Transwell Migration assay. The expression of exosome biogenesis genes was measured using a real-time PCR assay. The fatty acid profile was monitored using gas chromatography. The level of FAK, SQSTM1, ER, and SIRT1 was examined using Western blotting. Cancer stem-endothelial cell interaction was investigated using Surface Plasmon Resonance assay. Data showed no significant differences in cancer stem cell viability and proliferation between control and estradiol-treated groups (p>0.05). PCR array highlighted the up-regulation of both pro- and anti-apoptosis effectors in the treatment group compared to the control cells (p<0.05). Cell migration capacity was increased after treatment with estradiol (p<0.001). Both exocytosis and exosome biogenesis were decreased in cancer stem cells exposed to estradiol (p<0.05). Data showed the reduction of palmitic acid, and increase of Palmitoleic and Linolenic acids in estradiol-treated cells. Estrogen induced estrogen receptor, SQSTM1 proteins and decreased SIRT1 factor after 48 h. Surface Plasmon Resonance revealed the suppression of cancer stem-endothelial cell interaction and affinity. Estradiol could change the migration, juxtacrine and paracrine activities of cancer stem cells, showing the importance of sex-related hormones in the dynamic of cancer development.

RESUMO

AIM: Inflammatory and oxidative microenvironment at diabetic' wound site hinder the therapeutic efficacy of cell-based therapies in diabetic patients. The purpose of this study is to explore the competence of curcumin preconditioned human adipose derived cells (hASCs) in combination with platelet rich plasma (PRP) for the repair of wounds in diabetic rats. MAIN METHODS: The cytoprotective effect of curcumin preconditioning for hASCs against hyperglycemic stress was evaluated through analysis of cell morphology, viability, cytotoxicity, senescence, and scratch wound healing assays. Subsequently, the healing capacity of curcumin preconditioned hASCs (Cur-hASCs) added to PRP was examined in excisional wounded diabetic rat model. Healed skin biopsies were excised to analyze gene and protein expression of wound healing markers by qPCR and western blotting. Histopathological changes were observed through hematoxylin and eosin staining. KEY FINDINGS: We found that Cur-hASCs counteract the glucose stress much better than non-preconditioned hASCs by maintaining their cellular morphology and viability as well as metabolic potential. Further in vivo results revealed that, Cur-hASCs co-injected with PRP resulted in faster wound closure, improved fibroblast proliferation, increased neovascularization, marked reduction in inflammatory cells, and compact extracellular matrix with completely covered thick epithelium. Moreover, Cur-hASCs + PRP treatment significantly improved the expression of key healing markers such as pro-angiogenic (Vegf), dermal matrix deposition (Col1α1), cell migration (bFgf) and cell proliferation (Pcna) at wound site. SIGNIFICANCE: Our findings propose a combinatorial therapy (Cur-hASCs + PRP) as a novel modality to improve the efficacy of hASCs-based therapy for diabetic wounds.

RESUMO

Microtubules (MTs) mediate mitosis, directional signaling, and are therapeutic targets in cancer. Yet in vivo analysis of cancer cell MT behavior within the tumor microenvironment remains challenging. Here we developed an imaging pipeline using plus-end tip tracking and intravital microscopy to quantify MT dynamics in live xenograft tumor models. Among analyzed features, cancer cells in vivo displayed higher coherent orientation of MT dynamics along their cell major axes compared with 2D in vitro cultures, and distinct from 3D collagen gel cultures. This in vivo MT phenotype was reproduced in vitro when cells were co-cultured with IL4-polarized MΦ. MΦ depletion, MT disruption, targeted kinase inhibition, and altered MΦ polarization via IL10R blockade all reduced MT coherence and/or tumor cell elongation. We show that MT coherence is a defining feature for in vivo tumor cell dynamics and migration, modulated by local signaling from pro-tumor macrophages.

RESUMO

OBJETIVO: Las células madre mesenquimales (MSCs) son atractivas en la terapia regenerativa de patologías humanas. En los modelos murinos, en los que se trasplantan MSCs humanas, es muy importante poder distinguir el origen de las MSCs identificadas en los órganos de ratones. El objetivo de este estudio fue determinar el rendimiento del análisis basado en PCR de secuencias Alu humanas para detectar ADN humano después de la infusión de células madre de médula ósea humana (hBMSCs) en ratones inmunodeficientes. MATERIAL Y MÉTODO: Las hBMSCs se obtuvieron de la cabeza femoral de pacientes sometidos a cirugía de reemplazo de cadera. Se infundieron 106 hBMSCs por vía intravenosa mediante inyección en el seno retro-orbitario de ratones NOD/SCID. Después se evaluó la presencia de ADN humano en pulmón, hígado y hueso. RESULTADOS: En mezclas de ADN in vitro, el ADN humano se detectó fácilmente con una buena relación logarítmica-lineal. De manera similar, cuando se mezclaron osteoblastos humanos y de ratón, se detectaron fácilmente 1-10 células humanas entre 105 células de ratón. Asimismo, se detectó el ADN humano en los pulmones 1 y 7 días después de las infusiones celulares en ratones NOD/SCID. Sin embargo, el ADN humano se detectó de manera inconsistente en el hígado y los huesos. CONCLUSIÓN: La detección de secuencias Alu es un procedimiento eficaz para detectar ADN humano. Los resultados confirman que la mayoría de las hBMSCs inyectadas por vía intravenosa quedan atrapadas en los pulmones. Por lo tanto, de cara al tratamiento de trastornos esqueléticos, se necesitan procedimientos para aumentar la migración de dichas células al hueso


OBJETIVE: Mesenchymal stem cells (MSCs) are commonly used in regenerative therapy of human diseases. In murine models, in which human MSCs are transplanted, distinguishing the origin of the identified MSCs in the organs of mice is important. The objective of this study was to determine the performance of PCR-based analysis of human Alu sequences to detect human DNA after infusion of human bone marrow stem cells (hBMSCs) in immunodeficient mice. MATERIAL AND METHOD: HBMSCs were obtained from the femoral head of patients undergoing hip replacement surgery. 106 hBMSCs were infused intravenously by injection into the retro-orbital sinus of NOD/SCID mice. The presence of human DNA in lung, liver and bone was then assessed. RESULTS: In in vitro DNA mixtures, human DNA was easily detected with a good logarithmic-linear relationship. Similarly, when human and mouse osteoblasts were mixed, 1-10 cells were easily detected among 105 mouse cells. Likewise, human DNA was detected in the lungs 1 and 7 days after cell infusions in NOD/SCID mice. However, human DNA was inconsistently detected in the liver and bones. CONCLUSION: Detecting Alu sequences is an effective procedure to observe human DNA. The results confirm that most intravenously injected hBMSCs are trapped in the lungs. Thus, for the treatment of skeletal disorders, procedures are needed to increase the migration of these cells to the bone

RESUMO

The mechanism for segregation of cargo proteins into the regulated and constitutive secretory pathways in exocrine cells remains to be elucidated. We examined the transport of HaloTag proteins fused with full-length cystatin D (fCst5-Halo) or only its signal peptide (ssCst5-Halo) in parotid acinar cells. Although both fusion proteins were observed to be colocalized with amylase in the secretory granules, the coefficients for overlapping and correlation of fCst5-Halo with amylase were higher than those of ssCst5-Halo. The secretion of both the proteins was enhanced by the addition of the ß-adrenergic receptor agonist isoproterenol as well as endogenous amylase. In contrast, unstimulated secretion of ssCst5-Halo without isoproterenol was significantly higher than that of fCst5-Halo and amylase. Simulation analysis using a mathematical model revealed that a large proportion of ssCst5-Halo was secreted through the constitutive pathway, whereas fCst5-Halo was transported into the secretory granules more efficiently. Precipitation of fCst5-Halo from cell lysates was increased at a low pH, which may mimic the milieu of the trans-Golgi networks. These data suggest that the addition of a full-length sequence of cystatin D facilitates efficient selective transport into the regulated pathway by aggregation at low pH in the trans-Golgi network.NEW & NOTEWORTHY The mechanism underlying the segregation of cargo proteins to the regulated and constitutive secretory pathways in exocrine cells remains to be solved. We analyzed unstimulated secretion in salivary acinar cells by performing double-labeling experiments using HaloTag technology and computer simulation. It revealed that the majority of HaloTag with only signal peptide sequence was secreted through the constitutive pathway and that the addition of a full-length cystatin D sequence changed its sorting to the regulated pathway.

RESUMO

Pancreatic cancer has a dismal prognosis, and there is no targeted therapy against this malignancy. The neuronal membrane protein sortilin is emerging as a regulator of cancer cell development, but its expression and impact in pancreatic cancer are unknown. This study found that sortilin expression was higher in pancreatic cell lines versus normal pancreatic ductal epithelial cells, as shown by Western blot analysis and mass spectrometry. The increased sortilin level in pancreatic cancer cells was confirmed by immunohistochemistry in a series of 99 human pancreatic adenocarcinomas versus 48 normal pancreatic tissues (P = 0.0014). Sortilin inhibition by siRNA and the pharmacologic inhibitor AF38469 strongly reduced the adhesion and invasion of pancreatic cancer cells without affecting cell survival and viability. Sortilin inhibition also decreased the phosphorylation of the focal adhesion kinase in Tyr925. Together, these data show that sortilin contributes to pancreatic cancer invasion and could eventually be targeted in therapy.

RESUMO

OBJECTIVES: HOXD3 is associated with progression of multiple types of cancer. This study aimed to identify the association of YY1 with HOXD3-ITGA2 axis in the progression of hepatocellular carcinoma. MATERIALS AND METHODS: Bioinformatics assay was used to identify the effect of YY1, HOXD3 and ITGA2 expression in HCC tissues. The function of YY1 and HOXD3 in HCCs was determined by qRT-PCR, MTT, apoptosis, Western blotting, colony formation, immunohistochemistry, and wound-healing and transwell invasion assays. The relationship between YY1 and HOXD3 or HOXD3 and ITGA2 was explored by RNA-Seq, ChIP-PCR, dual luciferase reports and Pearson's assays. The interactions between YY1 and HDAC1 were determined by immunofluorescence microscopy and Co-IP. RESULTS: Herein, we showed that the expression of YY1, HOXD3 and ITGA2 associated with the histologic and pathologic stages of HCC. Moreover, YY1, recruiting HDAC1, can directly target HOXD3 to regulate progression of HCCs. The relationship between YY1 and HOXD3 was unknown until uncovered by our present investigation. Furthermore, HOXD3 bound to promoter region of ITGA2 and up-regulated the expression, thus activating the ERK1/2 signalling and inducing HCCs proliferation, metastasis and migration in the vitro and vivo. CONCLUSIONS: Therefore, HOXD3, a target of YY1, facilitates HCC progression via activation of the ERK1/2 signalling by promoting ITGA2. This finding provides a new whole way to HCC therapy by serving YY1-HOXD3-ITGA2 regulatory axis as a potential therapeutic target for HCC therapy.

RESUMO

OBJECTIVES: Bone mesenchymal stem cells (BMSCs) play critical roles in tumour microenvironment. However, molecular mechanisms of how BMSCs to be recruited and effect subsequent tumour progression are poorly understood in oral squamous cell carcinoma (OSCC). MATERIALS AND METHODS: The distribution of CXCL8 was detected by immunohistochemical staining in OSCC tissues. The chemotaxis of conditioned media from different epithelial cells to BMSCs was examined by trans-well assay. Real-time quantitative PCR (qPCR) and ELISA were used to detect the expression of related cytokines and chemokine receptors. The migration of BMSCs was observed in BALB/c nude mice. The roles of BMSCs in proliferation, migration and invasion of OSCC were detected by CCK-8, flow cytometry and trans-well assay. Epithelial-mesenchymal transition (EMT)-related markers were analysed by qPCR and Western blot in vitro, and growth was evaluated in BALB/c nude mice using subcutaneously implanted OSCC in nude mouse model in vivo. RESULTS: Using OSCC, we show CXCL8, secreted by OSCC, binds to exclusively CXCR2 in BMSCs to facilitate migration of BMSCs to OSCC. TGF-ß secreted by BMSCs subsequently induces EMT of OSCC to promote their proliferation, migration and infiltration. We also showed that the Ras/Raf/Erk axis plays a critical role in tumour progression. CONCLUSIONS: Our results provide the molecular basis for BMSC recruitment into tumours, and how this process leads to tumour progression and leads us to develop a novel OSCC treatment target.
