We report several novel observations. First, we find that multiple cdk4/6 and D-cyclin combinations can robustly stimulate human β-cell replication in vitro. Surprisingly, among all of the possible cdk4/6-D-cyclin combinations, cyclin D3 appeared to be a particularly effective partner for cdk6 and cdk4. Second, we demonstrate that, although cyclin D2 is a very effective partner for both cdk4 and cdk6 in stimulating human β-cell replication, and despite its being both present and essential for rodent β-cell replication and function, it is only marginally detectable in human β-cells. Third, we observe that the D-cyclins and cdks 4 and 6 are principally cytosolic proteins in the human β-cell. Fourth, we report that a single member of the cdk4/6 D-cyclin complex, cdk6, is able to enhance human β-cell transplantation in vivo. Fifth, we demonstrate that human β-cell replication can be sustained in vivo for at least four weeks using cdk6.. The rapid proliferation induced by the D3 combinations ...

Although mutations that activate the Hedgehog (Hh) signalling pathway have been linked to several types of cancer, the molecular and cellular basis of Hhs ability to induce tumour formation is not well understood. We identified a mutation in patched (ptc), an inhibitor of Hh signalling, in a genetic screen for regulators of the Retinoblastoma (Rb) pathway in Drosophila. Here we show that Hh signalling promotes transcription of Cyclin E and Cyclin D, two inhibitors of Rb, and principal regulators of the cell cycle during development in Drosophila. Upregulation of Cyclin E expression, accomplished through binding of Cubitus interruptus (Ci) to the Cyclin E promoter, mediates the ability of Hh to induce DNA replication. Upregulation of Cyclin D expression by Hh mediates the distinct ability of Hh to promote cellular growth. The discovery of a direct connection between Hh signalling and principal cell-cycle regulators provides insight into the mechanism by which deregulated Hh signalling promotes ...
Malignant gliomas frequently show genetic aberrations of genes coding for cell cycle regulatory proteins involved in the control of G1/S phase transition. These include mutation and/or deletion of the retinoblastoma (RB1) gene, homozygous deletion of the CDKN2A and CDKN2B genes, as well as amplification and overexpression of the CDK4 and CDK6 genes. The D‐type cyclins (cyclin D1, D2, and D3) promote cell cycle progression from G1 to S phase by binding to and activating the cyclin dependent kinases Cdk4 and Cdk6. Here, we have investigated a series of 110 primary malignant gliomas and 8 glioma cell lines for amplification and expression of the D‐type cyclin genes CCND1 (11q13), CCND2 (12p13), and CCND3 (6p21). We found the CCND1 gene amplified and overexpressed in one anaplastic astrocytoma of our tumor series. Two glioblastomas and one anaplastic astrocytoma showed CCND2 gene amplification, but lacked significant overexpression of CCND2 transcripts. Amplification and overexpression of the ...
Progress through the G1phase of the mammalian cell cycle is regulated by the ordered synthesis, assembly, and activation of distinct cyclin-CDK holoenzymes (45, 46). Cyclins D1, D2, and D3 are up-regulated as cells exit from quiescence and associate with their major kinase partners CDK4 and CDK6 (3, 29, 32, 53). These two kinase molecules are highly homologous and associate exclusively with the D-type cyclins (3). Numerous studies have implicated cyclin D-CDK4-CDK6 complexes as key regulators of the cell cycle up to a hypothetical point during late G1 (24, 25), the restriction point, when hyperphosphorylation and inactivation of the retinoblastoma tumor suppressor gene product, pRB, occur (37, 44).. In contrast to mitotic cyclin-CDK complexes, the D-type cyclins do not automatically assemble into complexes with either CDK4 or CDK6. For example, when overexpressed in NIH 3T3 cells in the absence of serum, D-type cyclins and CDK4 do not interact efficiently (30). Hence, assembly of D-type cyclins ...

Myocarditis is a cardiac disease associated with inflammation and injury of the myocardium. It results from various etiologies, both noninfectious and infectious, but coxsackievirus B3 (CVB3) is still considered the dominant etiological agent. Myocarditis may be caused by direct cytopathic effects of virus, a pathologic immune response to persistent virus, or autoimmunity triggered by the viral infection. The virus enters the myocyte through internalization of the coxsackie-adenoviral receptor (CAR) and its coreceptor, decay-accelerating factor (DAF). Viral proteases cleave various proteins in the host cell. One example is viral protease 2A, which cleaves eukaryote initiation factor 4G (eIF4G) and the dystrophin protein, resulting in a complete shutdown of cap-dependent RNA translation and cytoskeletal destruction in infected cardiomyocytes, respectively. CVB3 also cleaves the member of the Bcl-2 family Bid, leading to apoptosis. CVB3 infection also induces the cleavage of cyclin D protein ...

The alternatively spliced cyclin D1b variant of the CCND1 gene has been proposed to have higher oncogenic potential than cyclin D1a (8, 9). In breast cancer, aberrant cyclin D1b expression confers resistance to therapeutic treatment (30) and is associated with poor prognosis in patients (31). Cyclin D1b was also recently shown to enhance cell invasiveness and anchorage-independent growth of bladder cancer cells (32), and this isoform has been detected in various other cancer types (8, 28, 33). In PCa, changes in the cyclin D1b/cyclin D1a ratio are of particular relevance. Indeed, whereas both isoforms support cell cycle progression, they behave differently in the interaction with the AR pathway. Cyclin D1a was reported to associate with AR and to negatively regulate its transcriptional activity, thereby representing a brake for uncontrolled proliferation of PCa cells (6). By contrast, this negative feedback function is lacking in cyclin D1b (11), and its expression positively correlated with PCa ...
The generation of robust T-cell-dependent humoral immune responses requires the formation and expansion of germinal center structures within the follicular regions of the secondary lymphoid tissues. was only observed in mature GCs (Fig. ?(Fig.5D).5D). These data correlate with the lack of cyclin D2 manifestation in adult GCs and the requirement for cyclin D3 specifically at this stage. Based on our observation that cyclin D3 transcripts were observed in both follicular and GC B cells whereas cyclin D3 protein was only detected in GC cells and previous reports showing that cyclin D3 was regulated by pre-BCR mediated inhibition of proteosomal degradation (7) we hypothesized that GC-specific signaling events promote cyclin D3 protein stability. The proteosomal degradation of D-type cyclins upon phosphorylation of a conserved threonine residue by GSK3α/β has been previously reported (10). In addition phosphorylation of GSK3α/β on serine 21/9 residues leads to reduced kinase activity (27). We ...

Cyclin/cyclin-dependent kinase (CDK) complexes are critical regulators of cellular proliferation. A complex network of regulatory mechanisms has evolved to control their activity, including activating and inactivating phosphorylation of the catalytic CDK subunit and inhibition through specific regulatory proteins. Primate herpesviruses, including the oncogenic Kaposi sarcoma herpesvirus, encode cyclin D homologues. Viral cyclins have diverged from their cellular progenitor in that they elicit holoenzyme activity independent of activating phosphorylation by the CDK-activating kinase and resistant to inhibition by CDK inhibitors. Using sequence comparison and site-directed mutagenesis, we performed molecular analysis of the cellular cyclin D and the Kaposi sarcoma herpesvirus-cyclin to delineate the molecular mechanisms behind their different behavior. This provides evidence that a surface recognized for its involvement in the docking of CIP/KIP inhibitors is required and sufficient to modulate ...
THE D-type cyclins (D1, D2 and D3) are critical governors of the cell-cycle clock apparatus during the G1 phase of the mammalian cell cycle. These three D-type cyclins are expressed in overlapping, apparently redundant fashion in the proliferating tissues. To investigate why mammalian cells need three distinct D-type cyclins, we have generated mice bearing a disrupted cyclin D2 gene by using gene targeting in embryonic stem cells. Cyclin D2-deficient females are sterile owing to the inability of ovarian granulosa cells to proliferate normally in response to follicle-stimulating hormone (FSH), whereas mutant males display hypoplastic testes. In ovarian granulosa cells, cyclin D2 is specifically induced by FSH via a cyclic-AMP-dependent pathway, indicating that expression of the various D-type cyclins is under control of distinct intracellular signalling pathways. The hypoplasia seen in cyclin D2(-/-) ovaries and testes prompted us to examine human cancers deriving from corresponding tissues.
In contrast to cyclin D1 and D2, the expression level of cyclin D3 was high in the hindbrain at the E15.5 stage (Figure 3I, arrowhead). Moreover, in the midbrain cyclin D3 was expressed in cells closer to the ventricle than those expressing cyclin D2 (Figure 3H, I, arrows).. Discussion. At the E10.5 stage, all three D-type cyclins were expressed in most of the spinal cord cells but cyclin D1 and D3 showed higher expression levels in the dorsal half of the spinal cord. Wianny et al. (1998) found that the dorso-ventral gradient of the cyclin D1 transcript also occurs in the spinal cord of 7-9 somite-stage embryos. However, in our study we found that at the E10.5 stage cyclin D2 was not missing from the floor plate and also that cyclin D3 was not expressed only ventrally, as was reported for the transcripts of the genes in 7-9 somite stage embryos by Wianny et al. (1998). This may have been due to altered expression patterns of these genes during the time course of spinal cord development and ...

PY - 1999/12/15. Y1 - 1999/12/15. N2 - An association between cyclin D3 and the C-terminal domain of pRb2/p130 was demonstrated using the yeast two-hybrid system. Further analysis restricted the epitope responsible for the binding within the 74 N-terminal amino acids of cyclin D3, independent of the LXCXE amino acid motif present in the D-type cyclin N-terminal region. In a coprecipitation assay in T98G cells, a human glioblastoma cell line, the C-terminal domain of pRb2/p130 was able to interact solely with cyclin D3, while the corresponding portion of pRb interacted with either cyclin D3 or cyclin D1. In T98G cells, endogenous ...
The protein encoded by the Bcl-1 oncogene, known as cyclin D1, belongs to the highly conserved family of cyclin-dependent kinase (CDK) regulators. It is also known as CCND1, B-cell lymphoma 1 protein (BCL1), parathyroid adenomatosis 1 (PRAD1), B-cell CLL/lymphoma 1, G1/S-specific cyclin-D1, D11S287E, and U21B31. Different cyclins exhibit distinct expression and degradation patterns that contribute to the coordination of the cell cycle during mitosis. Cyclin D1 interacts with CDK4 and CDK6, whose activity is required for the cell cycle G1/S transition. Cyclin D1 also interacts with tumor suppressor protein Rb. Mutations in the Bcl-1 gene are associated with a variety of cancers, including esophageal, breast, and bladder cancer, as well as a variety of B-cell-related leukemias and lymphomas.. ...
and a shift of cyclin D1 mRNA from the polysome-associated to free mRNA fraction, indicating that 15d-PGJ2 inhibits the initiation of cyclin D1 mRNA translation. The selective rapid decrease in cyclin D1 protein accumulation is facilitated by its rapid turnover (t1/2=34 min) after inhibition of cyclin D1 protein synthesis. The half-life of cyclin D1 protein is not significantly altered in cells treated with 15d-PGJ2. Treatment of cells with 15d-PGJ2 results in strong induction of heat shock protein 70 (HSP70) gene expression, suggesting that 15d-PGJ2 might activate protein kinase R (PKR), an eIF- ...
Metabolism of L-Arg by arginase I-producing MDSCs leads to a significant decrease in the extracellular levels of L-Arg in murine tumor models and in patients with cancer (5, 25). The decreased levels of L-Arg induced the prolonged loss in the expression of CD3ζ (7, 26) and inhibited T cell proliferation (8). These effects were not associated with the induction of apoptosis and were rapidly reversible after replenishment of L-Arg or citrulline (8). We recently showed that activated primary T cells cultured in the absence of L-Arg were arrested in the G0-G1 phase of the cell cycle (8). The G0-G1 arrest in the cell cycle observed in L-Arg-deprived T cells correlated with an inability to upregulate the expression of cyclin D3 (8). Results from cyclin D3 knockout mice had demonstrated that cyclin D3 is essential for the maturation of T cells in the thymus (27), and they suggested a potential and selective role in T cell proliferation. Additionally, silencing of cyclin D3 induced a similar inhibition ...
As described above, we have reported a new physiological function of Cyclin D2 in the neuronal development of the mouse. We next questioned whether this mechanism is conserved among mammalian species. In humans, we found an accumulation of Cyclin D2 protein at the basal side of the cortical primordium at gestation week 16 (Tsunekawa et al. 2012). We also noted that the cis-acting element identified in mice that promotes basal transportation is highly conserved in human (74% match in the National Center for Biotechnology Information [NCBI] database). Therefore, it is tempting to speculate that in the human cortical primordium, Cyclin D2 mRNA is similarly transported within the basal process toward the basal endfoot and locally translated into protein. Notably, the basal transport cis-element that we have identified appears to be unique to mammals, as similar sequences are not found in avians or amphibians (NCBI database). Similarly, no accumulation of Cyclin D2 mRNA in the basal side of the chick ...
Smad nuclear interacting protein 1 (SNIP1) is an evolutionarily conserved protein containing a forkhead-associated (FHA) domain that regulates gene expression through interactions with multiple transcriptional regulators. Here, we have used short interfering RNAs (siRNAs) to knockdown SNIP1 expression in human cell lines. Surprisingly, we found that reduction in SNIP1 levels resulted in significantly reduced cell proliferation and accumulation of cells in the G1 phase of the cell cycle. Consistent with this result, we observed that cyclin D1 protein and mRNA levels were reduced. Moreover, SNIP1 depletion results in inhibition of cyclin D1 promoter activity in a manner dependent upon a previously characterized binding site for the AP-1 transcription factor family. SNIP1 itself is induced upon serum stimulation immediately prior to cyclin D1 expression. These effects were independent of the tumour suppressors p53 and retinoblastoma (Rb), but were consistent with an interaction with BRG1, a component of
its induction represents a mechanism by which myeloma cells can induce cyclin D2 dysregulation, and contribute to disease pathogenesis ...
Cyclin D1 is an important cell cycle regulator but in cancer its overexpression also increases cellular migration mediated by p27KlP1 stabilization and RhoA inhibition. Recently, a common polymorphism at the exon 4-intron 4 boundary of the human cyclin D1 gene within a splice donor region was associated with an altered risk of developing cancer. Altered RNA splicing caused by this polymorphism gives rise to a variant cyclin D1 isoform termed cyclin D1b, which has the same N-terminus as the canonical cyclin D1a isoform but a distinct C-terminus. In this study we show that these different isoforms have unique properties with regard to the cellular migration function of cyclin D1. Whereas they displayed little difference in transcriptional co-repression assays on idealized reporter genes, microarray cDNA expression analysis revealed differential regulation of genes including those that influence cellular migration. Additionally, while cyclin D1a stabilized p27KIP1 and inhibited RhoA-induced ROCK kinase
Cyclin D-Cdk4 complexes have a demonstrated role in G1 phase, regulating the function of the retinoblastoma susceptibility gene product (Rb). Previously, we have shown that following treatment with low doses of UV radiation, cell lines that express wild-type p16 and Cdk4 responded with a G2 phase cell cycle delay. The UV-responsive lines contained elevated levels of p16 post-treatment, and the accumulation of p16 correlated with the G2 delay. Here we report that in UV-irradiated HeLa and A2058 cells, p16 bound Cdk4 and Cdk6 complexes with increased avidity and inhibited a cyclin D3-Cdk4 complex normally activated in late S/early G2 phase. Activation of this complex was correlated with the caffeine-induced release from the UV-induced G2 delay and a decrease in the level of p16 bound to Cdk4. Finally, overexpression of a dominant-negative mutant of Cdk4 blocked cells in G2 phase. These data indicate that the cyclin D3-Cdk4 activity is necessary for cell cycle progression through G2 phase into mitosis and
Expression profile and molecular genetic regulation of cyclin D1 expression in epithelioid sarcoma Epithelioid sarcoma is a distinctive, aggressive soft tissue tumor typically presenting as a subcutaneous or deep dermal mass in the distal extremities of young adults. Molecular genetic data of well-characterized cases of epithelioid sarcoma are sparse. A recent cytogenetic study of epithelioid sarcoma by conventional metaphase comparative genomic hybridization reported recurrent gains at chromosome 11q13, a region containing many genes, including the cyclin D1 gene. Cyclin D1 is a positive cell cycle regulator that is overexpressed in a variety of neoplasms, including mantle cell lymphoma and breast carcinoma. The objective of this study was to examine cyclin D1 expression in epithelioid sarcoma. Of 24 cases evaluated, 23 (96%) displayed cyclin D1 nuclear expression using immunohistochemical evaluation. Eight cases, which expressed cyclin D1 by immunohistochemistry, were evaluated by fluorescence ...

In addition, we compared cyclin D1 expression with the expression of proliferating cell nuclear antigen (PCNA), considered to be a reliable index of the proliferation rate. We found cyclin D1 expressed in more than 60% of the neoplastic cells in 26.5% of our specimens. A total of 24.5% of the specimens showed ...

The NF-κB transcription factor is one of the most important regulators of the cellular life/death balance and its aberrant activation is associated with cancer ( 4). Therefore, identifying mechanisms for switching off aberrant NF-κB activity could have a major therapeutic benefit. Here, we reveal a novel pathway for down-regulating NF-κB transcriptional activity and inducing apoptosis of colon cancer cells that involves activation of the p38 pathway, inhibition of the cyclin D1/CDK4 kinase complex, and consequent nucleolar targeting of RelA. These findings contribute to our knowledge of the complexities of NF-κB signaling. Furthermore, these findings have considerable relevance to understanding the mechanisms of chemoprevention and cancer therapeutics.. The data presented here provide evidence that p38-mediated inhibition of cyclin D1/CDK4 stimulates the NF-κB pathway to induce nucleolar sequestration of RelA. This conclusion is based on the following findings. First, p38 was rapidly ...

Cyclin D1 and p16 are involved in the regulation of G1 checkpoint and may play an important role in the tumorigenesis of nasopharyngeal carcinoma (NPC). Previous studies have examined the level of expression of cyclin D1 and p16 in primary untreated NPC but no such information is available for recurrent NPC. We set out in this study to examine the expression level of cyclin D1 and p16 in recurrent NPC that have failed previous treatment with radiation +/- chemotherapy. A total of 42 patients underwent salvage nasopharyngectomy from 1984 to 2001 for recurrent NPC after treatment failure with radiation +/- chemotherapy. Twenty-seven pathologic specimens were available for immunohistochemical study using antibodies against cyclin D1 and p16. Positive expression of cyclin D1 was observed in 7 of 27 recurrent NPC specimens (26%) while positive p16 expression was seen in only 1 of 27 recurrent NPC (4%). While the level of expression of cyclin D1 in recurrent NPC was similar to that of previously untreated

The treatment of quiescent cells with growth factors results in the transcriptional activation of the D-type cyclin genes during G1. Expression of the members of this family of cyclins, D1, 2 and 3, is spatially and temporally regulated with respect to growth factor receptor ligation. Transcription of these particular cyclins is proposed to monitor the growth factor signal and the encoded proteins participate in G1 progression. I have been defining the cis-acting elements and trans-acting factors that control transcription of the human cyclin D3 gene in T-cells. Genomic clones for the human cyclin D3 gene, isolated from a human chromosome 6 library, were analysed by restriction endonuclease digestion and a sub-clone extending 1.7kb upstream of exon 1 was sequenced and studied. The human cyclin D3 gene has a TATA-less promoter and a single dominant initiation site. The minimal cyclin D3 promoter sequence was identified as a region 173bp upstream of the transcription initiation site. Transient ...
The relative levels of cyclin D1 (CCND1) (a) and (b) transcripts were determined by real-time reverse transcription polymerase chain reaction (RT-PCR) and found to vary according to the tissue origin in both control and tumor samples. A five-fold overexpression of both isoforms was observed in 28/38 cases of mantle cell lymphoma (MCL) and of only one isoform in 10/38 MCL. No correlation was observed between expression of cyclin D1 isoforms and CCND1 genotype at position 870. ...

Using gene expression analyses, overexpression of the cyclin D genes seems to be one possible unifying event that is seen in almost all multiple myeloma cases with or without an immunoglobulin translocation as compared with normal plasma cells (30). IgH translocations directly dysregulate cyclin D1 or D3 [t(11;14) and t(6;14), respectively] and the C-MAF or MAFB transcription factors dysregulate cyclin D2 [t(14;16) and t(14;20); ref. 31]. In this study, 12 MGUS samples had a similar pattern of cyclin D dysregulation despite a lower proliferative index, suggesting that cyclin D perturbation may indeed be an early and unifying event in plasma cell dyscrasias.. MicroRNAs (miRNA) are single-stranded RNA molecules that regulate gene expression posttranscriptionally and are being implicated in a large number of cancers (32). A study comparing miRNA profiles of normal plasma cells (PC), MGUS, SMM, and multiple myeloma found overexpression of mir-21, mir-106∼25, and mir181a, and mir-181b in MGUS and ...
The cyclin D1 expression pattern is not altered by signaling inhibitors. If the PI3K/AKT/GSK3 pathway stabilizes cyclin D1 levels specifically during G1 and G2 phases as suggested above, inhibitors of this pathway would produce a reduction in cyclin D1 expression during these cell cycle phases to the low levels seen during S phase. Thus, inhibition of these signaling pathways would be expected to result in low, uniform expression of cyclin D1 throughout the cell cycle. PI3K was inhibited by LY294002, while the kinase mTOR was inhibited by rapamycin in actively cycling human diploid fibroblast (MRC5) cultures. After 2 hrs treatment, including a terminal pulse with BrdU, the culture was fixed and stained with fluorescent antibodies against both cyclin D1 and BrdU, while DNA was stained with DAPI. Individual images of each fluorochrome were collected with a sensitive CCD camera, and subjected to image analysis to accurately quantitate the level of each fluorochrome in each cell (see [20]).

Aberrant expression of cyclin D1, frequently observed in human malignant disorders, has been linked to the control of G1→S cell cycle phase transition and development and progression in carcinogenesis. Cyclin D1 level changes are partially controlled by GSK-3β-dependent phosphorylation at threonine-286 (Thr286), which targets cyclin D1 for ubiquitination and proteolytic degradation. In our continuing studies on the mechanism of prostate cancer prevention by resveratrol, focusing on the role of its recently discovered target protein, quinone reductase 2 (NQO2), we generated NQO2 knockdown CWR22Rv1 using short hairpin RNA (shRNA)-mediated gene silencing approach. We found that, compared with cells expressing NQO2 (shRNA08), NQO2 knockdown cells (shRNA25) displayed slower proliferation and G1 phase cell accumulation. Immunoblot analyses revealed a significant decrease in phosphorylation of retinoblastoma Rb and cyclin D1 in shRNA25 compared with shRNA08. Moreover, shRNA25 cells showed a 37% ...
CYCD3;1 expression in Arabidopsis is associated with proliferating tissues such as meristems and developing leaves but not with differentiated tissues. Constitutive overexpression of CYCD3;1 increases CYCD3;1-associated kinase activity and reduces the proportion of cells in the G1-phase of the cell cycle. Moreover, CYCD3;1 overexpression leads to striking alterations in development. Leaf architecture in overexpressing plants is altered radically, with a failure to develop distinct spongy and palisade mesophyll layers. Associated with this, we observe hyperproliferation of leaf cells; in particular, the epidermis consists of large numbers of small, incompletely differentiated polygonal cells. Endoreduplication, a marker for differentiated cells that have exited from the mitotic cell cycle, is inhibited strongly in CYCD3;1-overexpressing plants. Transcript analysis reveals an activation of putative compensatory mechanisms upon CYCD3;1 overexpression or subsequent cell cycle activation. These ...
Chromosomal instability (CIN) in tumors is characterized by chromosomal abnormalities and an altered gene expression signature; however, the mechanism of CIN is poorly understood. CCND1 (which encodes cyclin D1) is overexpressed in human malignancies and has been shown to play a direct role in transcriptional regulation. Here, we used genome-wide ChIP sequencing and found that the DNA-bound form of cyclin D1 occupied the regulatory region of genes governing chromosomal integrity and mitochondrial biogenesis. Adding cyclin D1 back to Ccnd1-/- mouse embryonic fibroblasts resulted in CIN gene regulatory region occupancy by the DNA-bound form of cyclin D1 and induction of CIN gene expression. Furthermore, increased chromosomal aberrations, aneuploidy, and centrosome abnormalities were observed in the cyclin D1-rescued cells by spectral karyotyping and immunofluorescence. To assess cyclin D1 effects in vivo, we generated transgenic mice with acute and continuous mammary gland-targeted cyclin D1 ...
