Speckle-type POZ protein (SPOP) plays an important role in maintaining genome stability. Disability or mutation of the SPOP gene has been reported to contribute to prostate cancer incidence and prognosis. However, the functions of SPOP in lung cancer remain poorly understood, especially in lung adenocarcinoma (LUAD). Here, we found that SPOP affects the LUAD cell response to radiation by regulating the DNA damage response (DDR) pathway. SPOP is widely expressed in lung cancer cell lines, and SPOP protein levels are upregulated when cells experience DNA damage. SPOP knockdown affects DDR repair kinetics, apoptosis and cell cycle checkpoints that are induced by IR (ionizing radiation). Furthermore, we found that SPOP positively regulates the expression of DDR factors Rad51 and Ku80. Taken together, these data indicate the essential roles of SPOP in the DDR signaling pathways and LUAD cell response to radiation.

Objective: To conduct a robust prognostic gene expression signature and characterize molecular subtypes with distinct clinical characteristics for lung adenocarcinoma (LUAD). Methods: Based on DNA repair genes from the GSEA database, a prognostic signature was conducted in the TCGA-LUAD training set via univariate and multivariate cox regression analysis. Its prediction power was validated by overall survival analysis, relative operating characteristic (ROC) curves and stratification analysis in...

Speckle-type BTB/POZ protein (SPOP) is a substrate recognition receptor of the cullin-3 (CUL3)/RING type ubiquitin E3 complex. To date, approximately 30 proteins have been identified as ubiquitinated substrates of the CUL3/SPOP complex. Pathologically, missense mutations in the substrate-binding domain of SPOP have been found in prostate and endometrial cancers. Prostate and endometrial cancer-associated SPOP mutations lose and increase substrate-binding ability, respectively. Expression of thes...

Speckle-type POZ (pox virus and zinc finger protein) protein (SPOP) is the most commonly mutated gene in prostate cancer (PCa). Recent evidence reports a role of SPOP in DNA damage response (DDR), indicating a possible impact of SPOP deregulation on PCa radiosensitivity. This study aimed to define the role of SPOP deregulation (by gene mutation or knockdown) as a radiosensitizing factor in PCa preclinical models. To express WT or mutant (Y87N, K129E and F133V) SPOP, DU145 and PC-3 cells were tra...

Purpose: We aimed to identify new prognostic biomarkers of lung adenocarcinoma (LUAD) based on cancer stem cell theory. Materials and Methods: RNA-seq and microarray data were obtained with clinical information downloaded from The Cancer Genome Atlas (TCGA) and the Gene Expression Omnibus (GEO) databases. Weighted gene coexpression network analysis (WGCNA) was applied to identify significant module and hub genes. The hub genes were validated via microarray data from GEO, and a prognostic signatu...

The initiation and progression of cancer is dependent on the acquisition of mutations in oncogenes or tumor suppressor genes that ultimately leads to the dysregulation of key regulatory pathways. Though these mutations often occur in direct regulators of such pathways, some may confer tumorigenic potential by indirectly targeting several pathways congruently thereby exerting pleiotropic effects. In recent years, the tumor suppressor gene Speckle Type POZ Protein (SPOP) has gained a lot of attent...

Background Small nucleolar RNA host gene 17 (SNHG17), a novel cancer-related long noncoding RNA (lncRNA), was reported to be responsible for processing and developing in several cancers. Nonetheless, the clinical significance and biological function of SNHG17 in human breast cancer (BC) remain rarely known.

The nuclear speckle-type pox virus and zinc finger (POZ) protein (SPOP), a representative substrate-recognition subunit of the cullin-RING E3 ligase, has been characterized to play a dual role in tumorigenesis and cancer progression. Numerous studies have determined that SPOP suppresses tumorigenesis in a variety of human malignancies such as prostate, lung, colon, gastric, and liver cancers. However, several studies revealed that SPOP exhibited oncogenic function in kidney cancer, suggesting th...
