Abstract Inflammation plays a central role in prostate cancer (PCa) development through significant crosstalk between the COX-2-ErbB family receptor network and androgen receptor (AR)-EGFR signaling pathways. The purpose of this work was to determine the ability of the COX-2 inhibitor Celecoxib to modulate the EGFR-AR signaling pathway in androgen-dependent PCa cells and to provide a rationale for its beneficial use in chemopreventive strategies. Functional studies of Celecoxib activity were performed on LNCaP prostate cancer cells. Western blotting, gene expression analysis, dual-luciferase reporter assay and ELISA were applied to assess the Celecoxib mechanisms of action. We found that Celecoxib, through EGF and amphiregulin (AREG) induction, caused EGFR and ErbB2 activation and consequent degradation associated with the inhibition of androgenic signaling. By upregulating the E3 ubiquitin ligase Nrdp1, Celecoxib also efficiently downregulated ErbB3, which is strongly implicated in castration-resistant prostate cancer. Lastly, Celecoxib directly regulated AR transcription and translation independent of ErbB activation by downregulating the RNA binding protein heterogeneous nuclear ribonucleoprotein K (hnRNP K). The simultaneous suppression of ErbB kinases and androgen signaling by Celecoxib represents a novel strategy to interrupt the vicious cycle of AR/ErbB cross-talk with the primary purpose of undermining their resilient signaling in prostate cancer progression. Our data provide important premises for the chemopreventive use of Celecoxib in the clinical management of prostate cancer.

BackgroundThe cardiovascular safety of celecoxib, as compared with nonselective nonsteroidal antiinflammatory drugs (NSAIDs), remains uncertain. MethodsPatients who required NSAIDs for osteoarthritis or rheumatoid arthritis and were at increased cardiovascular risk were randomly assigned to receive celecoxib, ibuprofen, or naproxen. The goal of the trial was to assess the noninferiority of celecoxib with regard to the primary composite outcome of cardiovascular death (including hemorrhagic death...

The erbB receptors, including the epidermal growth factor receptor (EGFR), erbB2 (also known as HER2/neu), erbB3 (or HER3), and erbB4 (or HER4), are often aberrantly activated in a wide variety of human cancers. They are excellent targets for selective anti-cancer therapies because of their transmembrane location and pro-oncogenic activity. While several therapeutic agents against erbB2 and/or EGFR have been used in the treatment of human cancers with efficacy, there has been relatively less emp...

The management of prostate cancer (PCa) remains challenging because to date, there has been no way to distin- guish between indolent and aggressive tumors. Heterogeneous nuclear ribonucleoprotein K (hnRNP K) is implicated in the network of mechanisms that control androgen receptor (AR) expression. We studied the expression of the two proteins in PCa to evaluate their prognostic potential and elucidate the hnRNP K function in PCa progression. HnRNP K and AR expression were analyzed immunohistoche...

The androgen receptor (AR) plays a central role in the development and progression of prostate cancer (PCa) and anti-androgen therapy is a standard treatment. Unfortunately, after a few years, the majority of patients progress, developing androgen-independent PCa. AR-driven gene transcription recruits a large number of co-activator/co-repressor complexes; among these, the heterogeneous nuclear ribonucleoprotein K (hnRNP K) directly interacts with and regulates the AR translational apparatus. Her...

Current diagnostic tools cannot predict clinical failure and androgen-independent disease progression for patients with prostate cancer (PC). The survival signaling pathways of prostate cells play a central role in the progression of tumors to a neuroendocrine (NE) phenotype. NE cells demonstrate attributes that suggest that they are an integral part of the signaling cascade leading to castration-resistant PC. In this study, making use of in vitro neuroendocrine differentiation (NED) of human LN...
Chronic inflammation is now known to contribute to several forms of human cancer, with an estimated 20% of adult cancers attributable to chronic inflammatory conditions caused by infectious agents, chronic noninfectious inflammatory diseases and / or other environmental factors. Indeed, chronic inflammation is now regarded as an 鈥榚nabling characteristic鈥 of human cancer. The aim of this review is to summarize the current literature on the evidence for a role for chronic inflammation in prostate ...
Objectives: Lapatinib (GW572016) is a selective and potent dual tyrosine kinase inhibitor of the epidermal growth factor 1 (EGFR) and 2 (HER2), approved in the treatment of HER2 positive breast cancer. Since EGFR and HER2 overexpression has also been seen in prostate cancer and appears to correlate with a worse clinical outcome, Lapatinib may represent a novel therapeutic strategy in prostate cancer. This Phase II multicenter clinical trial is the first to evaluate Lapatinib in early stage, horm...

Patients with advanced prostate cancer (PCa) are initially susceptible to androgen withdrawal (AW), but ultimately develop resistance to this therapy (castration-resistant PCa, CRPC). Here, we show that AW can promote CRPC development by increasing the levels of the receptor tyrosine kinase ErbB3 in androgen-dependent PCa, resulting in AW-resistant cell cycle progression and increased androgen receptor (AR) transcriptional activity. CRPC cell lines and human PCa tissue overexpressed ErbB3, where...

Many of genes mediating Known Drug-Disease Association (KDDA) are escaped from experimental detection. Identifying of these genes (hidden genes) is of great significance for understanding disease pathogenesis and guiding drug repurposing. Here, we presented a novel computational tool, called KDDANet, for systematic and accurate uncovering the hidden genes mediating KDDA from the perspective of genome-wide functional gene interaction network. KDDANet demonstrated the competitive performances in b...

The epidermal growth factor receptor (EGFR) family belongs to the transmembrane protein receptor of the tyrosine kinase I subfamily and has 4 members: EGFR/ERBB1, ERBB2, ERBB3, and ERBB4. The EGFR family is closely related to the occurrence and development of a variety of cancers. In this study, we used multiple online bioinformatics websites, including ONCOMINE, TCGA, CGGA, TIMER, cBioPortal, GeneMANIA and DAVID, to study the expression profiles, prognostic values and immune infiltration correl...

Extracellular vesicles (EVs) are attracting increasing interest with their intriguing role in intercellular communications. Protein phosphorylation in EVs is of great importance for understanding intercellular signaling processes. However, the study of EV phosphoproteomics is impeded by their relatively low amount in limited clinical sample volumes, and it is necessary to have a sensitive and efficient enrichment method for EV phosphopeptides. Herein, a novel Ti(IV)-functionalized and glass fibe...

Inferring novel therapeutic indications of known drugs provides an effective method for fast-speed and low-risk drug development and disease treatment. Various computational tools have been developed to accurately predict potential associations between drugs and diseases. Nevertheless, no method has been designed to unveil pharmacological (toxicological) gene interactions underlying Known Drug-Disease Associations (KDDAs). System-level interpretation and elucidation of molecular mechanism underl...
Background: Prostate cancer (PCa) is a significant health concern throughout the world. Standard therapy for advanced disease consists of anti-androgens, however, almost all prostate tumors become castration resistant (CRPC). Progression from androgen-sensitive PCa to CRPC is promoted by inflammatory signaling through cyclooxygenase-2 (COX-2) expression and ErbB family receptors/AKT activation, compensating androgen receptor inactivity. Methods: Making use of CRPC cell lines, we investigated the...
The increasing number of datasets available in the GEO database offers a new approach to identify new miRNAs related to PCa. The aim of our study was to suggest a miRNA signature for the detection of high-grade PCa (Gleason score 鈮 7) using bioinformatics tools. Three mRNA datasets (GSE26022, GSE30521, GSE46602) were selected to identify the differentially expressed genes (DEGs) in high-grade PCa. Furthermore, two miRNA datasets (GSE45604, GSE46738) were analyzed to select the differentially exp...
