Genetic interactions among ADAMTS metalloproteases and basement membrane molecules in cell migration in Caenorhabditis elegans.

PLoS One 2020 2;15(12):e0240571. Epub 2020 Dec 2.

Department of Bioscience, Kwansei Gakuin University, Sanda, Japan.

During development of the Caenorhabditis elegans gonad, the gonadal leader cells, called distal tip cells (DTCs), migrate in a U-shaped pattern to form the U-shaped gonad arms. The ADAMTS (a disintegrin and metalloprotease with thrombospondin motifs) family metalloproteases MIG-17 and GON-1 are required for correct DTC migration. Mutations in mig-17 result in misshapen gonads due to the misdirected DTC migration, and mutations in gon-1 result in shortened and swollen gonads due to the premature termination of DTC migration.

Site-specific metastasis: A cooperation between cancer cells and the metastatic microenvironment.

Int J Cancer 2021 Mar 27;148(6):1308-1322. Epub 2020 Aug 27.

The Shmunis School of Biomedicine and Cancer Research, George S. Wise Faculty of Life Sciences, Tel-Aviv University, Tel Aviv, Israel.

The conclusion derived from the information provided in this review is that disseminating tumor cells (DTC) collaborate with the microenvironment of a future metastatic organ site in the establishment of organ-specific metastasis. We review the basic principles of site-specific metastasis and the contribution of the cross talk between DTC and the microenvironment of metastatic sites (metastatic microenvironment [MME]) to the establishment of the organ-specific premetastatic niche; the targeted migration of DTC to the endothelium of the future organ-specific metastasis; the transmigration of DTC to this site and the seeding and colonization of DTC in their future MME. We also discuss the role played by DTC-MME interactions on tumor dormancy and on the differential response of tumor cells residing in different MMEs to antitumor therapy. Read More

Quantitative stain-free imaging and digital profiling of collagen structure reveal diverse survival of triple negative breast cancer patients.

Breast Cancer Res 2020 05 6;22(1):42. Epub 2020 May 6.

Division of Pathology, Singapore General Hospital, 20 College Road, Academia, Level 7, Diagnostics Tower, Singapore, 169856, Singapore.

Background: Stromal and collagen biology has a significant impact on tumorigenesis and metastasis. Collagen is a major structural extracellular matrix component in breast cancer, but its role in cancer progression is the subject of historical debate. Collagen may represent a protective layer that prevents cancer cell migration, while increased stromal collagen has been demonstrated to facilitate breast cancer metastasis. Read More

Hyaluronan arrests human breast cancer cell growth by prolonging the G0/G1 phase of the cell cycle.

Acta Biochim Biophys Sin (Shanghai) 2018 Dec;50(12):1181-1189

Department of Molecular Biology, Shanghai Jiao Tong University Affiliated Sixth People's Hospital, Shanghai, China.

In clinical breast cancer patients, quiescent disseminated tumor cells (DTCs) can persist for a long time in the bone marrow (BM) under the influence of microenvironmental cues. As a high molecular weight polysaccharide, hyaluronan (HA) not only has been shown to regulate cancer processes including cell invasion, metastasis, migration, and proliferation, but also is a major component of the BM extracellular matrix. Here, we tested whether HA promotes breast cancer cell quiescence through detecting cell proliferation, cell cycle phase distribution, and the expression of cell cycle-related regulator proteins.

PATZ1 knockdown enhances malignant phenotype in thyroid epithelial follicular cells and thyroid cancer cells.

Oncotarget 2017 Oct 2;8(47):82754-82772. Epub 2017 Aug 2.

Division of Breast, Endocrine and Respiratory Surgery, Department of Surgery (II), Shinshu University School of Medicine, Matsumoto, Japan.

This study was designed to examine the involvement of PATZ1 in carcinogenesis and dedifferentiation of thyroid cancer. Immunohistochemistry on clinical specimens indicated nuclear PATZ1 expression in all normal thyroid glands and adenomatous goiter, while nuclear PATZ1 expression decreased along with the dedifferentiation of thyroid cancer. Knockdown of nuclear PATZ1 by siRNA in an immortalized normal follicular epithelial cell line (Nthy-ori 3-1) altered cellular morphology and significantly increased cell proliferation, migration, and invasion.

The directed migration of gonadal distal tip cells in Caenorhabditis elegans requires NGAT-1, a ß1,4-N-acetylgalactosaminyltransferase enzyme.

PLoS One 2017 17;12(8):e0183049. Epub 2017 Aug 17.

Department of Molecular Genetics, University of Toronto, Toronto, Ontario, Canada.

Glycoproteins such as growth factor receptors and extracellular matrix have well-known functions in development and cancer progression, however, the glycans at sites of modification are often heterogeneous molecular populations which makes their functional characterization challenging. Here we provide evidence for a specific, discrete, well-defined glycan modification and regulation of a stage-specific cell migration in Caenorhabditis elegans. We show that a chain-terminating, putative null mutation in the gene encoding a predicted β1,4-N-acetylgalactosaminyltransferase, named ngat-1, causes a maternally rescued temperature sensitive (ts) defect in the second phase of the three phase migration pattern of the posterior, but not the anterior, hermaphrodite Distal Tip Cell (DTC).

Germline compound heterozygous poly-glutamine deletion in USF3 may be involved in predisposition to heritable and sporadic epithelial thyroid carcinoma.

Hum Mol Genet 2017 01;26(2):243-257

Genomic Medicine Institute, Lerner Research Institute, Cleveland Clinic, Cleveland, Ohio, OH, USA.

Cowden syndrome (CS) is an autosomal dominant disorder that predisposes to breast, thyroid, and other epithelial cancers. Differentiated thyroid carcinoma (DTC), as one of the major component cancers of CS, is the fastest rising incident cancer in the USA, and the most familial of all solid tumours. To identify additional candidate genes of CS and potentially DTC, we analysed a multi-generation CS-like family with papillary thyroid cancer (PTC), applying a combined linkage-based and whole-genome sequencing strategy and identified an in-frame germline compound heterozygous deletion, p.

CXCR4 Protein Epitope Mimetic Antagonist POL5551 Disrupts Metastasis and Enhances Chemotherapy Effect in Triple-Negative Breast Cancer.

Mol Cancer Ther 2015 Nov 12;14(11):2473-85. Epub 2015 Aug 12.

Division of Molecular Oncology, Department of Medicine, Washington University School of Medicine, St. Louis, Missouri.

The SDF-1 receptor CXCR4 has been associated with early metastasis and poorer prognosis in breast cancers, especially the most aggressive triple-negative subtype. In line with previous reports, we found that tumoral CXCR4 expression in patients with locally advanced breast cancer was associated with increased metastases and rapid tumor progression. Moreover, high CXCR4 expression identified a group of bone marrow-disseminated tumor cells (DTC)-negative patients at high risk for metastasis and death. Read More
