RESUMO

The evolutionary conserved Notch pathway that first developed in metazoans and that was first discovered in fruit flies (Drosophila melanogaster) governs fundamental cell fate decisions and many other cellular key processes not only in embryonic development but also during initiation, promotion, and progression of cancer. On a first look, the Notch pathway appears remarkably simple, with its key feature representing a direct connection between an extracellular signal and transcriptional output without the need of a long chain of protein intermediaries as known from many other signaling pathways. However, on a second, closer look, this obvious simplicity exerts surprising complexity. There is no doubt that the enormous scientific progress in unraveling the functional mechanisms that underlie this complexity has recently greatly increased our knowledge about the role of Notch signaling for pathogenesis and progression of many types of cancer. Moreover, these new scientific findings have shown promise in opening new avenues for cancer prevention and therapy, although this goal is still challenging. Vol. III of the second edition of the book Notch Signaling in Embryology and Cancer, entitled Notch Signaling in Cancer, summarizes important recent developments in this fast-moving and fascinating field. Here, we give an introduction to this book and a short summary of the individual chapters that are written by leading scientists, covering the latest developments in this intriguing research area.

RESUMO

The Notch signal transduction cascade requires cell-to-cell contact and results in the proteolytic processing of the Notch receptor and subsequent assembly of a transcriptional coactivator complex containing the Notch intracellular domain (NICD) and transcription factor RBPJ. In the absence of a Notch signal, RBPJ remains at Notch target genes and dampens transcriptional output. Like in other signaling pathways, RBPJ is able to switch from activation to repression by associating with corepressor complexes containing several chromatin-modifying enzymes. Here, we focus on the recent advances concerning RBPJ-corepressor functions, especially in regard to chromatin regulation. We put this into the context of one of the best-studied model systems for Notch, blood cell development. Alterations in the RBPJ-corepressor functions can contribute to the development of leukemia, especially in the case of acute myeloid leukemia (AML). The versatile role of transcription factor RBPJ in regulating pivotal target genes like c-MYC and HES1 may contribute to the better understanding of the development of leukemia.

RESUMO

The endosomal pathway plays a pivotal role upon signal transduction in the Notch pathway. Recent work on lethal (2) giant discs (lgd) points to an additional critical role in avoiding uncontrolled ligand-independent signalling during trafficking of the Notch receptor through the endosomal pathway to the lysosome for degradation. In this chapter, we will outline the journey of Notch through the endosomal system and present an overview of the current knowledge about Lgd and its mammalian orthologs Lgd1/CC2D1b and Lgd2/CC2D1a. We will then discuss how Notch is activated in the absence of lgd function in Drosophila and ask whether there is evidence that a similar ligand-independent activation of the Notch pathway can also happen in mammals if the orthologs are inactivated.

RESUMO

The human endometrium is a unique, highly dynamic tissue that undergoes cyclic changes of cell proliferation, differentiation, and death. Endometrial cancer is the most common malignancy among women in developed countries. Importantly, the incidence of endometrial cancer is rising in high-income countries. Currently histological classification is used for subtyping of endometrial cancer, while ongoing research is evaluating markers for more accurate molecular classification. Evolutionary conserved Notch signaling pathway regulates diverse cellular processes such as proliferation, differentiation, and cell invasion. Accumulating evidence links aberrant Notch signaling with diseases such as hyperplasia and endometrial cancer. This chapter summarizes the current state of Notch signaling investigations in the endometrium, endometriosis, and endometrial cancer.

RESUMO

Esophageal squamous cell carcinoma (ESCC) is a deadly disease that requires extensive research on its mechanisms, prevention, and therapy. Recent studies have shown that NOTCH mutations are commonly seen in human ESCC. This chapter summarizes our current understanding of the NOTCH pathway in normal esophagus and in ESCC. In normal esophagus, NOTCH pathway regulates the development of esophageal squamous epithelium, in particular, squamous differentiation. Exposure to extrinsic and intrinsic factors, such as gastroesophageal reflux, alcohol drinking, and inflammation, downregulates the NOTCH pathway and thus inhibits squamous differentiation of esophageal squamous epithelial cells. In ESCC, NOTCH plays a dual role as both a tumor suppressor pathway and an oncogenic pathway. In summary, further studies are warranted to develop NOTCH activators for the prevention of ESCC and NOTCH inhibitors for targeted therapy of a subset of ESCC with activated NOTCH pathway.

RESUMO

Interactions between liver cells are closely regulated by Notch signaling. Notch signaling has been reported clinically related to bile duct hypogenesis in Alagille syndrome, which is caused by mutations in the Jagged1 gene. Notch activation and hepatocarcinogenesis are closely associated since cancer signaling is affected by the development of liver cells and cancer stem cells. Gene expression and genomic analysis using a microarray revealed that abnormalities in Notch-related genes were associated with the aggressiveness of liver cancer. This pattern was also accompanied with α-fetoprotein- and EpCAM-expressing phenotypes in vitro, in vivo, and in clinical tissues. Hepatitis B or C virus chronic infection or alcohol- or steatosis-related liver fibrosis induces liver cancer. Previous reports demonstrated that HBx, a hepatitis B virus protein, was associated with Jagged1 expression. We found that the Jagged1 and Notch1 signaling pathways were closely associated with the transcription of covalently closed circular hepatitis B virus DNA, which regulated cAMP response element-binding protein, thereby affecting Notch1 regulation by the E3 ubiquitin ligase ITCH. This viral pathogenesis in hepatocytes induces liver cancer. In conclusion, Notch signaling exerts various actions and is a clinical signature associated with hepatocarcinogenesis and liver context-related developmental function.

RESUMO

Head and neck cancer is a group of neoplastic diseases affecting the facial, oral, and neck region. It is one of the most common cancers worldwide with an aggressive, invasive evolution. Due to the heterogeneity of the tissues affected, it is particularly challenging to study the molecular mechanisms at the basis of these tumors, and to date we are still lacking accurate targets for prevention and therapy. The Notch signaling is involved in a variety of tumorigenic mechanisms, such as regulation of the tumor microenvironment, aberrant intercellular communication, and altered metabolism. Here, we provide an up-to-date review of the role of Notch in head and neck cancer and draw parallels with other types of solid tumors where the Notch pathway plays a crucial role in emergence, maintenance, and progression of the disease. We therefore give a perspective view on the importance of the pathway in neoplastic development in order to define future lines of research and novel therapeutic approaches.

RESUMO

The NOTCH pathway is critical for the development of many cell types including the squamous epithelium lining of cutaneous and mucosal surfaces. In genetically engineered mouse models, Notch1 acts as one of the first steps to commit basal keratinocytes to terminally differentiate. Similarly, in human head and neck squamous cell cancers (HNSCCs), NOTCH1 is often lost consistent with its essential tumor-suppressive role for initiating keratinocyte differentiation. However, constitutive NOTCH1 activity in the epithelium results in expansion of the spinous keratinocyte layers and impaired terminal differentiation is consistent with the role of NOTCH1 as an oncogene in other cancers, especially in T-cell acute lymphoblastic leukemia. We have previously observed that NOTCH1 plays a dual role as both a tumor suppressor and oncogene, depending on the mutational context of the tumor. Namely, gain or loss or NOTCH1 activity promotes the development of human papillomavirus (HPV)-associated cancers. The additional HPV oncogenes likely disrupt the tumor-suppressive activities of NOTCH and enable the oncogenic pathways activated by NOTCH to promote tumor growth. In this review, we detail the role of NOTCH pathway in head and neck cancers with a focus on HPV-associated cancers.

RESUMO

Since many decades, nonmelanoma skin cancer (NMSCs) is the most common malignancy worldwide. Basal cell carcinomas (BCC) and squamous cell carcinomas (SCC) are the major types of NMSCs, representing approximately 70% and 25% of these neoplasias, respectively. Because of their continuously rising incidence rates, NMSCs represent a constantly increasing global challenge for healthcare, although they are in most cases nonlethal and curable (e.g., by surgery). While at present, carcinogenesis of NMSC is still not fully understood, the relevance of genetic and molecular alterations in several pathways, including evolutionary highly conserved Notch signaling, has now been shown convincingly. The Notch pathway, which was first developed during evolution in metazoans and that was first discovered in fruit flies (Drosophila melanogaster), governs cell fate decisions and many other fundamental processes that are of high relevance not only for embryonic development, but also for initiation, promotion, and progression of cancer. Choosing NMSC as a model, we give in this review a brief overview on the interaction of Notch signaling with important oncogenic and tumor suppressor pathways and on its role for several hallmarks of carcinogenesis and cancer progression, including the regulation of cancer stem cells, tumor angiogenesis, and senescence.

RESUMO

Thyroid cancer is the most common malignancy of the endocrine system with a steadily rising incidence. The term "thyroid cancer" encompasses a spectrum of subtypes, namely papillary thyroid cancer, follicular thyroid cancer, anaplastic thyroid cancer, and medullary thyroid cancer. Each subtype differs histopathologically and in degrees of cellular differentiation, which may be in part due to signaling of the Notch pathway. The Notch pathway is an evolutionarily conserved signal transduction mechanism that regulates cell proliferation, differentiation, survival, stem cell maintenance, embryonic and adult development, epithelial-mesenchymal transition, and angiogenesis. Its role in cancer biology is controversial, as it has been shown to play both an oncogenic and tumor-suppressive role in many different types of cancers. This discordance holds true for each subtype of thyroid cancer, indicating that Notch signaling is likely cell type and context dependent. Whether oncogenic or not, Notch signaling has proven to be significantly involved in the tumorigenesis of thyroid cancer and has thus earned interest as a therapeutic target. Advancement in the understanding of Notch signaling in thyroid cancer holds great promise for the development of novel treatment strategies to benefit patients.

RESUMO

The Notch signaling pathway controls normal embryonic development and tissue homeostasis of many cell types. It regulates cell proliferation, fate, differentiation, and cell death by short-range signaling between nearby cells that come in contact. The Notch pathway has also been critically involved in the pathobiology of a variety of malignancies, regulating cancer initiation and development, as well as early stages of cancer progression, by adjusting conserved cellular programs. Fibroblasts, an essential for tumor growth component of stroma, have also been affected by Notch regulation. Sequencing Notch gene mutations have been identified in a number of human tumors, revealing information on the progression of specific cancer types, such as ovarian cancer and melanoma, immune-associated tumors such as myeloid neoplasms, but especially in lymphocytic leukemia. Activation of the Notch can be either oncogenic or it may contain growth-suppressive functions, acting as a tumor suppressor in other hematopoietic cells, hepatocytes, skin, and pancreatic epithelium.

RESUMO

Notch promotes breast cancer progression through tumor initiating cell maintenance, tumor cell fate specification, proliferation, survival, and motility. In addition, Notch is recognized as a decisive mechanism in regulating various juxtacrine and paracrine communications in the tumor microenvironment (TME). In this chapter, we review recent studies on stress-mediated Notch activation within the TME and sequelae such as angiogenesis, extracellular matrix remodeling, changes in the innate and adaptive immunophenotype, and therapeutic perspectives.

RESUMO

OBJECTIVE: To explore the correlation of SOCS1 gene methylation with the activity of JAK2/STAT signaling pathway, genesis and progress of acute myeloid leukemia. METHODS: Several techniques, such as cell culture, qPCR, MS-PCR, Western bolt, CCK-8 assay, flow cytometry and gene transfection were used to analyze the relation of expression and methylation statues of SOCS1 gene with the genesis and progression of AML in 120 AML patients and leukemia cell lines U937 and THP-1, at the same time to analyze the changes of downstream protein expression in JAK2/STAT signaling pathway and their effect on the growth and apoptosis of leukemia cell lines. RESULTS: The positive rate of WT1/ABL in SOCS1 methylated group was significantly higher than that in SOCS1 non-methylated group, and the complete remission rate of one course treatment in SOCS1-methylated group was significantly lower than that in SOCS1 non-methylated group. The expression level of SOCS1 gene in low methylation rate group was higher, and the expression of down-stream proteins p-JAK2, p-STAT3 and p-STAT5 in JAK2/STAT signaling pathway decreased, while the expression of t-JAK2,t-STAT3 and t-STAT5 was not changed statistically significantly. The growth rate of leukemia cells graduated decreased, and the apoptosis rate of leukemia cells graduated increased along with the enhancement of methylation drug concentration. CONCLUSION: The methylation of SOCS1 gene results in the gene silencing, thereby declines its inhibition on the down-stream proteins in JAK2/STAT signaling pathway, and finally promotes the growth and proliferation of AML cells.

RESUMO

OBJECTIVE: To investigate the effect and possible mechanism of up-regulation of p-Akt by doxycycline (DOX) on myeloma cell line H929. METHODS: Multiple myeloma cell line H929 was treated with DOX at different concentrations for different times, and cell proliferation rate was measured by CCK-8 assay. The protein expression level of p-Akt, PTEN, p-PDK1, p-mTOR, p-GSK-3ß, and p-BAD was analyzed by Western blot. The mRNA levels of mTOR, BCL-2, and NF-κB was analyzed by RT-PCR. PI3K inhibitor Wortmannin was used to antagonize the up-regulation of p-Akt, and the cell proliferation and p-Akt protein expression level were analyzed by CCK-8 assay and Western blot respectively. RESULTS: DOX could inhibit the proliferation of H929 cells and up-regulate the expression of p-Akt at the same time. The protein levels of both p-PDK1 and PTEN in H929 cells did not alter significantly during DOX treatment. The expressions of p-BAD and p-GSK-3ß were up-regulated in H929 cells after treated with DOX, but the expression of p-mTOR was not altered. The mRNA levels of mTOR, BCL-2, and NF-κB in H929 were all down-regulated in H929 cells during DOX treatment. The effect up-regulating p-Akt level by DOX was suppressed when DOX combined with PI3K inhibitor Wortmannin and Wortmannin could enhance the inhibitory effect of DOX in H929 cells. CONCLUSION: DOX can activate PI3K/Akt signaling pathway in H929 cells, and antagonizing this effect of DOX may enhance its cytotoxicity to myeloma cells.

RESUMO

Antiviral strategies to inhibit Severe Acute Respiratory Syndrome Coronavirus 2 (SARS-CoV2) and the pathogenic consequences of COVID-19 are urgently required. Here, we demonstrate that the NRF2 antioxidant gene expression pathway is suppressed in biopsies obtained from COVID-19 patients. Further, we uncover that NRF2 agonists 4-octyl-itaconate (4-OI) and the clinically approved dimethyl fumarate (DMF) induce a cellular antiviral program that potently inhibits replication of SARS-CoV2 across cell lines. The inhibitory effect of 4-OI and DMF extends to the replication of several other pathogenic viruses including Herpes Simplex Virus-1 and-2, Vaccinia virus, and Zika virus through a type I interferon (IFN)-independent mechanism. In addition, 4-OI and DMF limit host inflammatory responses to SARS-CoV2 infection associated with airway COVID-19 pathology. In conclusion, NRF2 agonists 4-OI and DMF induce a distinct IFN-independent antiviral program that is broadly effective in limiting virus replication and in suppressing the pro-inflammatory responses of human pathogenic viruses, including SARS-CoV2.

RESUMO

OBJECTIVE: To study the expression of Shh singaling related gene, including Shh, Ptch1, Smo and Gli1 in bone marrow CD34+ cells of patients with myelodysplastic syndrome(MDS) and acute myeloid leukemia with myelodysplasia-related changes(AML-MRC), and to explore their clinical significance. METHODS: The count of CD34+ cells in bone marrow was detected by flow cytometry in 53 patients with MDS and 30 patients with AML-MRC. Magnetic beads were used to separate CD34+ cells. The expression of Shh, Ptch1,Smo and Gli1 on CD34+ cells was detected by qRT-PCR, the effect of the 4 gene expression on prognosis of patients in MDS and AML-MRC group was compared, 25 patients with iron-deficiency anemia were used as controls. RESULTS: The expression levels of Shh, Smo and Gli1 of patients in MDS and AML-MRC group were significantly higher than those in control group (P<0.05), moreover increased with disease progression(P<0.05). The expression of Ptch1 was not statistically significantly different between 3 groups(P>0.05). In comparison of prognosis, the expression of Smo and Gli1 in the patients of relatively high risk groups and AML-MRC groups were significantly increased (P<0.05). The median overall survival time of patients in MDS and AML-MRC groups was 12(7.5,16.5) and 6(3.0,9.0) months (P=0.000) respectively. The median survival time of MDS and AML-MRC patients with high expression of Smo and Gli1 was significantly shorter than that of MDS and AML-MRC patients with low expression of Smo and Gli1(P<0.05). CONCLUSION: Shh signaling pathway in the patients with MDS is activated, which is involved in the progress and prognosis of MDS.

RESUMO

OBJECTIVE: To study the anti-apoptotic effect of cyanidin-3-O-glucoside(C3 G) on H_2O_2-induced injury in human embryonic kidney(HEK)-293 cells. METHODS: Hydrogen peroxide induced injury of HEK-293 cell was used as the research object. HEK-293 cells were pretreated with different concentrations of C3 G(1. 25, 5, 20 µmol/L). The anti-apoptotic effects of C3 G on injured cells were examined by the release rates of LDH and mitochondrial membrane potential(MMP). Western blot and qRT-PCR were used to detect the protein expression and mRNA expression of NF-κB P65. RESULTS: The result showed that the release rate of LDH was increased, MMP was decreased, the protein and mRNA of P65 was increased after H_2O_2 inducing. Whereas, the release rates of LDH were significantly lower than that of the injured group after 1. 25, 5, 20 µmol/L C3 G pretreatment of injured cells(P<0. 05). The MMP of C3 G group was significantly higher than injured group with concentration-dependent increases. The proteins and mRNA of P65 were also significantly lower than that of injured group(P<0. 05). CONCLUSION: Cyanidin-3-O-glucoside shows anti-apoptotic effect on H_2O_2-induced injury in HEK-293 cell. The mechanisms of anti-apoptotic effects may be to achieve by protecting cell biofilms, and inhibiting the activity of NF-κB signaling pathway.

RESUMO

Tumor heterogeneity and lack of knowledge about resistant cell states remain a barrier to targeted cancer therapies. Basal cell carcinomas (BCCs) depend on Hedgehog (Hh)/Gli signaling, but can develop mechanisms of Smoothened (SMO) inhibitor resistance. We previously identified a nuclear myocardin-related transcription factor (nMRTF) resistance pathway that amplifies noncanonical Gli1 activity, but characteristics and drivers of the nMRTF cell state remain unknown. Here, we use single cell RNA-sequencing of patient tumors to identify three prognostic surface markers (LYPD3, TACSTD2, and LY6D) which correlate with nMRTF and resistance to SMO inhibitors. The nMRTF cell state resembles transit-amplifying cells of the hair follicle matrix, with AP-1 and TGFß cooperativity driving nMRTF activation. JNK/AP-1 signaling commissions chromatin accessibility and Smad3 DNA binding leading to a transcriptional program of RhoGEFs that facilitate nMRTF activity. Importantly, small molecule AP-1 inhibitors selectively target LYPD3+/TACSTD2+/LY6D+ nMRTF human BCCs ex vivo, opening an avenue for improving combinatorial therapies.

RESUMO

Brain cells continuously produce and release protons into the extracellular space, with the rate of acid production corresponding to the levels of neuronal activity and metabolism. Efficient buffering and removal of excess H+ is essential for brain function, not least because all the electrogenic and biochemical machinery of synaptic transmission is highly sensitive to changes in pH. Here, we describe an astroglial mechanism that contributes to the protection of the brain milieu from acidification. In vivo and in vitro experiments conducted in rodent models show that at least one third of all astrocytes release bicarbonate to buffer extracellular H+ loads associated with increases in neuronal activity. The underlying signalling mechanism involves activity-dependent release of ATP triggering bicarbonate secretion by astrocytes via activation of metabotropic P2Y1 receptors, recruitment of phospholipase C, release of Ca2+ from the internal stores, and facilitated outward HCO3- transport by the electrogenic sodium bicarbonate cotransporter 1, NBCe1. These results show that astrocytes maintain local brain extracellular pH homeostasis via a neuronal activity-dependent release of bicarbonate. The data provide evidence of another important metabolic housekeeping function of these glial cells.

RESUMO

Nrf2 is a key transcription factor responsible for antioxidant defense in many tissues and cells, including alveolar epithelium, endothelium, and macrophages. Furthermore, Nrf2 functions as a transcriptional repressor that inhibits expression of the inflammatory cytokines in macrophages. Critically ill patients with COVID-19 infection often present signs of high oxidative stress and systemic inflammation - the leading causes of mortality. This article suggests rationale for the use of Nrf2 inducers to prevent development of an excessive inflammatory response in COVID-19 patients.
