Blockade of EIF5A hypusination limits colorectal cancer growth by inhibiting MYC elongation.

Cell Death Dis 2020 12 10;11(12):1045. Epub 2020 Dec 10.

Department of Molecular Medicine, Sapienza University of Rome, Viale Regina Elena 291, 00161, Rome, Italy.

Eukaryotic Translation Initiation Factor 5A (EIF5A) is a translation factor regulated by hypusination, a unique posttranslational modification catalyzed by deoxyhypusine synthetase (DHPS) and deoxyhypusine hydroxylase (DOHH) starting from the polyamine spermidine. Emerging data are showing that hypusinated EIF5A regulates key cellular processes such as autophagy, senescence, polyamine homeostasis, energy metabolism, and plays a role in cancer. However, the effects of EIF5A inhibition in preclinical cancer models, the mechanism of action, and specific translational targets are still poorly understood. Read More

Distinctive crypt shape in a sessile serrated adenoma/polyp: Distribution of Ki67-, p16INK4a-, WNT5A-positive cells and intraepithelial lymphocytes.

Oncol Rep 2017 Aug 15;38(2):775-784. Epub 2017 Jun 15.

Department of Tumor Pathology, Gifu University Graduate School of Medicine, Gifu 501-1194, Japan.

Serrated lesions in the colorectum are currently predominantly classified as hyperplastic polyps (HPs), sessile serrated adenomas/polyps (SSA/Ps), and traditional serrated adenomas (TSAs) according to their morphology. However, the histological morphology and the molecular changes in the serrated lesions are still unclear. We performed immunohistochemistry for Ki67, p16INK4a, and WNT5A in human HPs (n=22), SSA/Ps (n=41), and TSAs (n=19). Read More

Age dictates a steroid-resistant cascade of Wnt5a, transglutaminase 2, and leukotrienes in inflamed airways.

J Allergy Clin Immunol 2017 Apr 20;139(4):1343-1354.e6. Epub 2016 Aug 20.

Center of Allergy and Environment (ZAUM), Member of the German Center for Lung Research (DZL), Technical University of Munich and Helmholtz Center Munich, Munich, Germany. Electronic address:

Background: Airway remodeling is a detrimental and refractory process showing age-dependent clinical manifestations that are mechanistically undefined. The leukotriene (LT) and wingless/integrase (Wnt) pathways have been implicated in remodeling, but age-specific expression profiles and common regulators remained elusive.

Objective: We sought to study the activation of the LT and Wnt pathways during early- or late-onset allergic airway inflammation and to address regulatory mechanisms and clinical relevance in normal human bronchial epithelial cells (NHBEs) and nasal polyp tissues. Read More

PARP-1 expression is increased in colon adenoma and carcinoma and correlates with OGG1.

PLoS One 2014 19;9(12):e115558. Epub 2014 Dec 19.

Department of Clinical Biochemistry, Collegium Medicum, Nicolaus Copernicus University, Karlowicza 24, PO-85-092 Bydgoszcz, Poland.

The ethiology of colon cancer is largely dependent on inflammation driven oxidative stress. The analysis of 8-oxodeoxyguanosine (8-oxodGuo) level in leukocyte DNA of healthy controls (138 individuals), patients with benign adenomas (AD, 137 individuals) and with malignant carcinomas (CRC, 169 individuals) revealed a significant increase in the level of 8-oxodGuo in leukocyte DNA of AD and CRC patients in comparison to controls. The counteracting mechanism is base excision repair, in which OGG1 and PARP-1 play a key role. Read More

Detection of colon polyps by a novel, polymer pattern-based full blood test.

J Transl Med 2013 Nov 4;11:278. Epub 2013 Nov 4.

INDAGO GmbH, Deutscher Platz 5a, Leipzig D-04103, Germany.

Numerous studies have shown that early screening for the presence of pre-cancerous colon polyps and their subsequent removal decreases the risk of developing colon cancer. Colonoscopy is currently the most effective screening method, but due to the invasive nature of the procedure many patients avoid forgo testing. Futhermore, the procedure itself requires perfect execution by the gastroenterologist. Read More

Non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs in cancer prevention and therapy.

Anticancer Res 2007 Sep-Oct;27(5A):3147-62

Department of Laboratory Medicine and Advanced Biotechnologies, IRCCS San Raffaele Pisana, Rome, Italy.

Long-term use of non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs) can be regarded as an effective approach for cancer chemoprevention, as demonstrated by a bulk of clinical and experimental evidence. However, the clinical use of these drugs as chemopreventive agents is limited by many open questions about the optimal drug, dose, duration of therapy and knowledge about the mechanism(s) by which these drugs act. In particular, the recent data on cardiovascular toxicity of coxibs has posed some limitations on the use of NSAIDs for cancer chemoprevention in the general population. Read More

Elevated levels of 2',5'-linked oligoadenylate-dependent ribonuclease L occur as an early event in colorectal tumorigenesis.

Clin Cancer Res 1995 Nov;1(11):1421-8

Departments of Cancer Biology, Urology, and Colorectal Surgery, Research Institute, The Cleveland Clinic Foundation, Cleveland, Ohio 44195, USA.

RNA decay in IFN-treated cells is controlled by 2'5'-linked oligoadenylate (2-5A)-dependent RNase (RNase L), a uniquely regulated endoribonuclease that requires short 5'-phosphorylated, 2-5A for its activity. Because RNase L is also implicated in the regulation of cell proliferation, we monitored its expression in colorectal adenocarcinomas and noncancerous polyps from familial adenomatous polyposis patients. Elevated levels of RNase L mRNA and activity were found in 17 of 20 tumors compared with corresponding normal mucosa. Read More

Evaluation of the ras and myc oncoproteins in benign gastric lesions.

Anticancer Res 1990 Sep-Oct;10(5A):1127-33

Ippokration General Hospital, Athens, Greece.

Ras and c-myc oncoprotein expression was analyzed using specific monoclonal antibodies Y13-259 (for ras p21) and mycl-9E10 (for c-myc p62) in 144 histological sections derived from benign gastric lesions. Increased expression of ras p21 was observed in inflammatory metaplastic, dysplastic, hyperplastic and cystic histological changes, and on the basis of ras p21 staining three distinct histological groups emerged: (i) cystic changes, hyperplastic polyps; (ii) inflammatory gastritis; (iii) metaplastic, dysplastic and adenomatous polyps. Elevated levels of ras p21 expression were found at significantly higher levels than those of c-myc expression in dysplastic lesions. Read More
