Ubiquitin and SUMO conjugation as biomarkers of acute myeloid leukemias response to chemotherapies.

ABSTRACT: Ubiquitin and the ubiquitin-like SUMO are covalently conjugated to thousands of proteins to modulate their function and fate. Many of the enzymes involved in their conjugation are dysregulated in cancers and involved in cancer cell response to therapies. We describe here the identification of biomarkers of the activity of these enzymes and their use to predict acute myeloid leukemias (AML) response to standard chemotherapy (daunorubicin-DNR and cytarabine-Ara-C). We compared the ability of extracts from chemosensitive and chemoresistant AML cells to conjugate ubiquitin or SUMO-1 on 9,000 proteins spotted on protein arrays. We identified 122 proteins whose conjugation by these posttranslational modifiers marks AML resistance to DNR and/or Ara-C. Based on this signature, we defined a statistical score predicting AML patient response to standard chemotherapy. We finally developed a miniaturized assay allowing for easy assessment of modification levels of the selected biomarkers and validated it in patient cell extracts. Thus, our work identifies a new type of ubiquitin-based biomarkers that could be used to predict cancer patient response to treatments.

Acute promyelocytic leukaemia (APML) is a subtype of leukaemia arising from a distinct reciprocal translocation involving chromosomes 15 and 17, which results in the <i>PML-RARA</i> fusion gene. Over the past three decades, APML has been transformed from a highly fatal disease to a highly curable one. This drastic improvement is because of the introduction of a new treatment strategy with all-trans retinoic acid and, more recently, arsenic trioxide. The revolutionary treatment of APML has also p  ...[more]
