Transcriptional responses of mantle cell lymphoma (MCL) lines to IKKB inhibition
ABSTRACT: MCL cell lines were treated with DMSO or 5uM AFN700 for 20hrs This experiment is designed to see if NFKB-target genes are downregulated by inhibition of IKKB in MCL cell lines that are insensitive to ibrutinib (BTK inhibitor) or sotrastaurin (PKC inhibitor) MCL cells were seeded in 6well dishes and treated for 20hrs with DMSO or 5uM AFN700
Project description:MCL lines (biological replicates) were treated with DMSO or 2.5uM Sotrastaurin for 3hrs This experiment is designed to see if a common set of genes is affected by Sotrastaurin (STN) treatment in STN-sensitive and STN-insensitive MCL lines. MCL cells were seeded in 6well dishes and treated for 3hrs with DMSO or 2.5uM Sotrastaurin
Project description:To determine the global transcriptome changes in mantle cell lymphoma cells following treatment with the BET bromodomain antagonist, JQ1 Mantle Cell Lymphoma (MCL) cells exhibit increased B cell receptor and NFkB activities. The BET protein BRD4 is essential for the transcriptional activity of NFkB. Here, we demonstrate that treatment with the BET protein bromodomain antagonist (BA) JQ1 attenuates MYC and CDK4/6, inhibits the nuclear RelA levels and the expression of NFκB target genes including Bruton’s Tyrosine Kinase (BTK) in MCL cells. While lowering the levels of the anti-apoptotic BCL2 family proteins, BA treatment induces the pro-apoptotic protein BIM and exerts dose-dependent lethality against cultured and primary MCL cells. Co-treatment with BA and the BTK inhibitor ibrutinib synergistically induces apoptosis of MCL cells. Compared to each agent alone, co-treatment with BA and ibrutinib markedly improved the median survival of mice engrafted with the MCL cells. BA treatment also induced apoptosis of the in vitro isolated, ibrutinib-resistant MCL cells which overexpress CDK6, BCL2, Bcl-xL, XIAP and AKT, but lack ibrutinib resistance-conferring BTK mutation. Co-treatment with BA and panobinostat (pan-histone deacetylase inhibitor) or palbociclib (CDK4/6 inhibitor) or ABT-199 (BCL2 antagonist) synergistically induced apoptosis of the ibrutinib-resistant MCL cells. These findings highlight and support further in vivo evaluation of the efficacy of the BA-based combinations with these agents against MCL, including ibrutinib-resistant MCL. MO2058 cells treated with vehicle, 250 nM or 1000 nM JQ1 for 8 hours. Samples were acquired and analyzed in duplicate.
Project description:The covalent Bruton’s Tyrosine Kinase (BTK) inhibitor ibrutinib is highly efficacious against multiple B-cell malignancies. However, it also has off-target effects and multiple mechanisms of resistance, including the C481S mutation. We hypothesized that small molecule-induced BTK degradation might be able to overcome some of the limitations of traditional enzymatic inhibitors. Here, we demonstrate that BTK degradation results in more durable suppression of signaling and proliferation in cancer cells than BTK inhibition and that BTK degraders are able to efficiently degrade BTK C481S. Moreover, we generated DD-03-171, an optimized lead compound that exhibits enhanced anti-proliferative effects on mantle cell lymphoma (MCL) cells in vitro as well as efficacy in a patient-derived xenograft model of MCL. These data suggest that targeted BTK degradation is an effective therapeutic approach in treating MCL and overcoming ibrutinib resistance, thereby addressing a major unmet need in the treatment of MCL and other B-cell lymphomas.
Project description:The genes regulated by SOX11 in MCL was investigated in MCL cell line Granta 519 by siRNA knock down system. Cells were transfected using the LONZA electroporation system. Results represent cells harvested after 20 hours. Details of the experiment is published in PMID 21124928. Gene expression profiles (Human Gene 1.0 ST) of mantle cell lymphoma (MCL) cell line Granta 519 treated with SOX11 siRNA. Data analyses were performed using the Affymetrix Expression Console (v. 1.1)
Project description:SOX11 (Sex determining region Y-box 11) expression is specific for MCL as compared to other Non-Hodgkin’s lymphomas. However, the function and direct binding targets of SOX11 in MCL are largely unknown. We used high-resolution ChIP-Seq to identify the direct target genes of SOX11 in a genome-wide, unbiased manner and elucidate its functional significance. Pathway analysis identified WNT, PKA and TGF-beta signaling pathways as significantly enriched by SOX11 target genes. qCHIP confirmed that SOX11 directly binds to individual genes in these pathways in both MCL cell lines and patients. Interrogation of an eighty-two patient gene-expression dataset demonstrated that SOX11 mRNA expression was inversely proportional to Ki-67, a marker of cell proliferation. Functional studies using RNA interference demonstrate that SOX11 directly regulates WNT signaling and modulates chemotherapy sensitivity to cytarabine in MCL. We analyzed SOX11 expression in three independent well-annotated tissue microarrays from the University of Wisconsin (UW), Karolina Institute and British Columbia Cancer Agency (BCCA). Our findings suggest that high SOX11 expression is associated with improved survival in a subset of MCL patients, particularly those treated with intensive chemotherapy incorporating cytarabine. Transcriptional regulation of WNT and other biological pathways affects by SOX11 target genes may help explain the impact of SOX11 expression on patient outcomes.
