Family with sequence similarity 46 member C (FAM46C) is a non-canonical poly(A) polymerase that is associated with tumorigenesis. However, its role in prostate cancer development is not fully understood. Herein, we determined expression pattern of FAM46C in prostate cancer and further identified its effect on the tumorigenesis and chemosensitivity. FAM46C expression was decreased in prostate cancer tissues and cell lines compared with corresponding controls. FAM46C expression was significantly associated with the Gleason score, tumor size and overall survival. FAM46C knockdown in 22RV1 and DU145 cells significantly inhibited apoptosis and promoted cell proliferation and cell cycle progression as well as activation of AKT. FAM46C overexpression had an inverse effect in DU145 cells and inhibited tumor growth in vivo. FAM46C inhibited cell proliferation and cell cycle progression and induced apoptosis via the PTEN/AKT signaling pathway. FAM46C promoted PTEN expression through inhibiting PTEN ubiquitination. The prostate cancer cells and patient-derived xenograft (PDX) mice with high-FAM46C-expressing demonstrated an enhanced chemosensitivity to docetaxel. These findings suggest that FAM46C control cell proliferation, cell cycle and apoptosis through PTEN/AKT signaling pathway and is associated with chemosensitivity of prostate cancer. Modulation of their levels may offer a new approach for improving anti-tumor efficacy for chemotherapeutic agents in prostate cancer.

FAM46B is a member of the family with sequence similarity 46. Little is known about the expression and functional role(s) of FAM46B in prostate cancer (PC). In this study, the expression of FAM46B expression in The Cancer Genome Atlas, GSE55945, and an independent hospital database was measured by bioinformatics and real-time PCR analysis. After PC cells were transfected with siRNA or a recombinant vector in the absence or presence of a β-catenin signaling inhibitor (XAV-939), the expression lev...

AbstractBackground: Cancer lethality is mainly caused by metastasis. Therefore, understanding the nature of the genes involved in this process has become a priority. BACH1, a basic leucine zipper transcription factor, has been shown to transcriptionally regulate expression of a range of genes that are associated with breast cancer metastasis. However, the exact role and the underlying molecular mechanism of BACH1 in prostate cancer remain unclear. This study aims to explore the expression of BAC...

: Mir-22-3p is associated with many important biological processes, including neuroprotection, tumorigenesis, and various other tumor progressions. Our study aimed to investigate the roles of Mir-22-3p in chemosensitivity of gastrointestinal stromal tumor (GIST-T1) cells to cisplatin and explore its underlying mechanisms. Mir-22-3p high-expressing cell line was established by transfecting GIST-T1 cell line cells with Mir-22-3p mimic. After treatment with cisplatin (10 μM), Cell counting kits-8 (...

Docetaxel and cabazitaxel are taxane chemotherapy treatments for metastatic castration-resistant prostate cancer (CRPC). However, therapeutic resistance remains a major issue. MicroRNAs are short non-coding RNAs that can silence multiple genes, regulating several signalling pathways simultaneously. Therefore, synthetic microRNAs may have therapeutic potential in CRPC by regulating genes involved in taxane response and minimise compensatory mechanisms that cause taxane resistance. To identify mic...

BACKGROUND: Cowden syndrome (CS) is a rare autosomal-dominant inherited disorder characterized by multiple hamartomas. While the hamartomas are benign, patients with CS have increased risk of osteosarcoma and of breast, thyroid, endometrial, soft-tissue and colonic neoplasms. Germline mutations of phosphatase and tensin homolog (PTEN) are implicated in CS and in the development of osteosarcoma. We report a patient with CS who presented with osteosarcoma, ganglioneuromatosis and a benign breast m...

: 6-Phosphofructo 2-kinase/fructose 2, 6-bisphosphatase 3 (PFKFB3) has been reported to be overexpressed in human cancer tissues and to promote the proliferation and migration of cancer cells. However, the role of PFKFB3 in the progression and prognosis of breast cancer is not yet fully understood. In the present study, we investigated the specific role of PFKFB3 in breast cancer progression and its preliminary mechanisms of action. We first used an immunohistochemistry assay to determine that P...

MiR-374a appears to play a complex role in non-small-cell lung cancer (NSCLC). Here, we demonstrate a dual role for miR-374a in NSCLC pathogenesis. The effects and modulatory mechanisms of miR-374a on cell growth, migration, invasion, and in vivo tumorigenesis and metastasis in nude mice were also analyzed. The expression of miR-374a was examined in NSCLC and non-cancerous lung tissues by quantitative real-time reverse transcription-PCR (qRT-PCR), and in situ hybridization, respectively. miR-374...

Genetic factors that influence inflammation and energy production/expenditure in cells may affect patient outcomes following treatment with external beam radiation therapy (EBRT). Sestrins, stress-inducible genes with antioxidant properties, have recently been implicated in several behaviors including fatigue. This proof-of-concept study explored whether the sestrin family of genes (SESN1, SESN2, and SESN3) were differentially expressed from baseline to the midpoint of EBRT in a sample of 26 Pue...

BACKGROUND Multiple myeloma (MM) is a hematologic malignancy characterized by the accumulation of aberrant plasma cells within the bone marrow. The high frequent mutation of family with sequence similarity 46, member C (FAM46C) is closely related with the occurrence and progression of MM. Recently, FAM46C has been identified as a non-canonical poly(A) polymerase (PAP) that functions as a tumor suppressor in MM. This study aimed to elucidate the structural features of this novel non-canonical PAP...

In over two decades since the discovery of phosphatase and tensin homologue deleted on chromosome 10 (PTEN), nearly 18,000 publications have attempted to elucidate its functions and roles in normal physiology and disease. The frequent disruption of PTEN in cancer cells was a strong indication that it had critical roles in tumour suppression. Germline PTEN mutations have been identified in patients with heterogeneous tumour syndromic diseases, known as PTEN hamartoma tumour syndrome (PHTS), and i...

Multiple myeloma is a plasma cell neoplasm characterized by the production of unfolded immunoglobulins, which cause endoplasmic reticulum (ER) stress and sensitivity to proteasome inhibition. The genomic landscape of multiple myeloma is characterized by the loss of several genes rarely mutated in other cancers that may underline specific weaknesses of multiple myeloma cells. One of these is FAM46C that is lost in more than 10% of patients with multiple myeloma. We show here that FAM46C is part o...

Prostate cancer (PCa) accounts for a high number of deaths in males with no available curative treatments. Patients with PCa are commonly diagnosed in advanced stages due to the lack of symptoms in the early stages. Recently, the research focus was directed toward gene editing in cancer therapy. Small interfering RNA (siRNA) intervention is considered as a powerful tool for gene silencing (knockdown), enabling the suppression of oncogene factors in cancer. This strategy is applied to the treatme...
