Background: Deletion in liver cancer gene (DLC1) and phosphorylated focal adhesion kinase (p-FAK) have recently been reported as metastasis-related genes. However, the roles and prognostic values of their expression in epithelial ovarian carcinomas (EOCs) remain unclear. Methods: The expression and prognostic value of DLC1 and p-FAK Y397 in EOC were evaluated by immunohistochemistry and multivariate analysis. Results: Low expression of DLC1 and high expression of p-FAK Y397 were found in the 76 cases of EOC. The expression of DLC1 and p-FAK Y397 were negatively correlated. Multivariate analysis showed that the combination of them was an independent prognostic marker of EOC (P = 0.0319). Conclusions: DLC1 and pFAK Y397 had an association with the clinicopathologic characteristics of EOC. Expression of neither of these genes was a prognostic factor alone, but the combination revealed a significant prognostic value in the 60 cases of advanced stage EOC.
A decreased apoptotic response toward noxious stress is an issuing characteristic of the aging phenotype. Hydrogen peroxide or staurosporine induced apoptosis readily in young cells but not in senescent cells. We showed that focal adhesion kinase (FAK) expression and its phosphorylation at Tyr397, autophosphorylation site for focal adhesion formation, and Tyr577, Src-dependent phosphorylation site, were both increased in senescent cells. Moreover, FAK was inactivated proteolytically by apoptotic stimuli in young cells, but not in senescent cells. In addition, senescent cells whose FAK expression was downregulated by siRNA showed the increased level of apoptosis by staurosporine treatment via caspase-3 activation but not by hydrogen peroxide treatment. Interestingly dephosphorylation at Tyr577 of FAK by PP2 treatment, Src-family kinase inhibitor, induced the apoptosis by staurosporine in senescent cells but dephosphorylation at Tyr397 by downregulation of caveolin-1 was not affected. These data ...
For epithelial cancer cells to invade and metastasize, they are required to remodel their cell-matrix adhesions, detach, migrate, and adhere at distant sites within the body. A number of signaling pathways are involved in this process and here we addressed the role of Src and FAK in adhesion remodeling in colon cancer epithelial cells. Tyrosine phosphorylation of FAK is required for the ability of KM12C cells to turnover their adhesions, which is associated with cell motility. This is in accordance with work on viral Src where the Src-induced phosphorylation of FAK is linked with proteolytic cleavage of FAK by calpain required for both cell transformation and focal adhesion turnover and migration (41, 42) . Specifically, expression of FAK 407-925F prevented focal adhesion turnover and cell migration in fibroblasts (43) and a similar pathway may be initiated upon expression of this interfering mutant in KM12C cells where analysis of adhesion dynamics in real time revealed a defect in the ability ...
Materials and constructs. Sequence targeting the human PLCγ1 mRNA was subcloned into pSuper and pSuperior vectors (ref. 17; Supplementary Fig. S1B). Control vectors (pSuper 3Mut and pSuperior 3Mut) contain a three-point mutated sequence unable to target the human PLCγ1 mRNA (Supplementary Fig. S1B). Palm-HA-PLCγ1 was kindly provided by Dr. E. Bonvini (MacroGenics, Inc.). Antibodies were as follows: phosphorylated PLCγ1 (Tyr783), PLCγ1, phosphorylated epidermal growth factor receptor (EGFR; Tyr992), EGFR, phosphorylated AKT (Ser473), AKT, phosphorylated extracellular signal-regulated kinases (ERK), and ERKs from Cell Signaling; phosphorylated focal adhesion kinase (FAK; Tyr397) from BioSource; Rac1, FAK, paxillin, and glyceraldehyde-3-phosphate dehydrogenase from Santa Cruz Biotechnology; phosphorylated Tyr (4G10) from UBI; and CD44 from Novocastra Laboratories Ltd..

PND-1186, also known as SR-2156 and VS-4718, is a potent FAK inhibitor with a 50% inhibitory concentration (IC50) of 1.5 nM in vitro. PND-1186 has an IC50 of ~100 nM in breast carcinoma cells. Notably, 1.0 µM PND-1186 (|5-fold above IC50) had limited effects on cell proliferation. However, under non-adherent conditions as spheroids and as colonies in soft agar, 0.1 µM PND-1186 blocked FAK and p130Cas tyrosine phosphorylation, promoted caspase-3 activation, and triggered cell apoptosis. PND-1186 inhibited 4T1 breast carcinoma subcutaneous tumor growth correlated with elevated tumor cell apoptosis and caspase 3 activation.
OxLDL drives NF-κB activation and VCAM-1 expression through integrin-α5β1-dependent FAK signaling; however, the mechanisms regulating FAK-dependent NF-κB signaling have remained elusive (Yurdagul et al., 2014). Here, we define a new signaling pathway involving FAK-dependent activation of the RSK pathway to promote NF-κB activation through its classic upstream mediator IKKβ. Although both RSK and NF-κB activation are known to be redox sensitive, we show that preventing integrin signaling or FAK activation does not significantly affect oxLDL-induced ROS levels, suggesting that FAK-dependent activation of the RSK-IKKβ-NK-κB pathway operates independently from oxidative stress (Abe et al., 2000; Kabe et al., 2005). Instead, oxLDL drives FAK-dependent ERK activation that results in RSK-dependent signaling to IKKβ and NF-κB. We further demonstrate elevated FAK activation in the endothelium overlying both mouse and human atherosclerotic plaques, and show that transgenic mice containing an ...
Focal adhesion kinase (FAK) is an important mediator of extracellular matrix-integrin mechano-signal transduction that regulates cell motility, survival, and proliferation. As such, FAK is being investigated as a potential therapeutic target for malignant and fibrotic diseases, and numerous clinical trials of FAK inhibitors are underway. The function of FAK in nonmalignant, nonmotile epithelial cells is not well understood. We previously showed that hepatocytes demonstrated activated FAK near stiff collagen tracts in fibrotic livers. In this study, we examined the role of liver epithelial FAK by inducing fibrotic liver disease in mice with liver epithelial FAK deficiency. We found that mice that lacked FAK in liver epithelial cells developed more severe liver injury and worse fibrosis as compared with controls. Increased fibrosis in liver epithelial FAK-deficient mice was linked to the activation of several profibrotic pathways, including the hedgehog/smoothened pathway. FAK-deficient ...
A new study published in the Journal of Biology describes how a protein that promotes cell growth allows cells to metastasise and spread through the bloodstream. Cancer cells are confined to the tissue in which they arise unless they can find a way into the bloodstream. The growth factor VEGF enables cells to do this by loosening connections between endothelial cells that form the lining of blood vessel walls.. VEGF triggers the phosphorylation of a protein called VEC, which serves to fasten endothelial cells together. As a result of this process, complexes that contain VEC fall apart, opening gaps between endothelial cells. Focal adhesion kinase (FAK), which accumulates at cell-to-cell junctions in the presence of VEGF, may play a role in VEC phosphorylation.. Scientists from the UC San Diego Moores Cancer Center gave a FAK inhibitor to a group of mice with fast-spreading breast cancer and a group with ovarian tumors in an attempt to pinpoint the function of the protein. It was discovered that ...

The findings are published in this weeks online issue of The Journal of Cell Biology. Blood vessels are tightly lined with endothelial cells, which form a permeability barrier to circulating cells and molecules. Our studies show that pharmacological or genetic inhibition of the endothelial protein focal adhesion kinase, or FAK, prevents tumor spread by enhancing the vessel barrier function. The researchers found that selective FAK inhibition within endothelial cells prevented spontaneous tumor metastasis without alterations in tumor size. Schlaepfer, with colleagues at the UC San Diego Moores Cancer Center, is exploring whether inhibiting targets like FAK, which has important regulatory functions in both tumor cells and blood vessels, might provide a dual mechanism for preventing both cancer growth and spread. Using mouse models of breast, ovarian and melanoma tumors, first author Christine Jean, PhD, showed that FAK activity was elevated in the blood vessels surrounding tumors, compared to ...

A multiple-functionalized targeting delivery system was prepared by self-assembly for efficient delivery of Cas9/sgRNA plasmids to targeted tumor cell nuclei. The Cas9/sgRNA plasmids were compacted by protamine in the presence of calcium ions to form nanosized cores, which were further decorated by peptide and aptamer conjugated alginate derivatives. With the help of the nuclear location signal peptide and AS1411 aptamer with specific affinity for nucleolin in the tumor cell membrane and nuclei, the delivery vector can specifically deliver the plasmid to the nuclei of tumorous cells for knocking out the protein tyrosine kinase 2 (PTK2) gene to down-regulate focal adhesion kinase (FAK). The tumor cell apoptosis induced by genome editing is mitochondrial-dependent. In addition, FAK knockout results in negative regulation on the PI3K/AKT signaling pathway. Meanwhile, favorable modulation on various proteins involved in tumor progression can be realized by genome editing. The enhanced E-cadherin and ...

Results: Our data have shown that manipulating of the expression of CD24 in the tested cancer model cell lines resulted in a significant change in the expression level of Cten which in turn caused changes in the expression levels of ILK and FAK. Noticeable modifications to cell migration, invasion, proliferation, and colony-forming rate (all p,0.05) following CD24 manipulation have also been detected, indicating that the up-regulation of Cten, ILK and FAK expression by CD24 may reveal the mechanism via which cell functions are regulated. The up-regulation of Cten expression by CD24 was found to be due to protein stabilisation as confirmed by qPCR and CHX assy. CD24 was observed to activate AKT at Serine 473 (Ser473), rather than at the Threonine 308 (Thr308) residue, and potentially collaborate with PI3 kinase to induce the full activation of AKT. The inhibition of EGFR using a specific EGFR inhibitor, PD135053, and the stimulation of EGF using recombinant EGF in cell lines that did not harbour ...

Background Focal adhesion Kinase (FAK) is a nonreceptor proteins tyrosine kinase that is overexpressed in tumors and plays a significant role in tumor survival and PD318088 metastasis. in matched main tumors by Spearman correlation analysis. In addition a strong positive correlation was observed between high FAK expression and shorter overall survival and progression free survival in patients with metastatic tumors. Conclusions The data demonstrate a high potential for FAK as a therapeutic target especially in triple-negative breast cancer patients with high FAK expression. Rabbit Polyclonal to BLNK (phospho-Tyr84). (not shown). Thus these data suggest that targeting FAK in triple-negative breast cancer patients is usually a promising approach. It is important to note that FAK has many binding partners and integrates multiple oncogenic survival pathways and sequesters tumor-suppressor pathways [1 22 Therefore future therapeutics should involve multiple targets cross-linked with FAK survival ...
The objectives of this research were to better characterize the protein signaling complexes that form in response to spermatozoa binding to the bovine oocyte vitelline membrane and to elucidate their potential involvement in oocyte activation. Integrins located on the vitelline membrane of bovine oocytes have been implicated in mediating the sperm-oocyte interaction. Anti-integrin function blocking antibodies and immunofluorescence were utilized in order to reveal that the αV and β1 integrin subunits are essential for fertilization in the bovine and could form the integrin heterodimer involved in the sperm-oocyte interaction. Focal adhesion kinase is localized to focal adhesions and is a key component of signal transduction pathways mediated by integrins. The presence of focal adhesion kinase in bovine oocytes was verified by real-time polymerase chain reaction and immunoprecipitation and the localization of focal adhesion kinase at the site of sperm binding to the oocyte plasma membrane was verified
RhoJ is a RhoGTPase expressed in endothelial cells and tumour cells which regulates cell motility, invasion, endothelial tube formation and focal adhesion numbers. This study aimed to further delineate the molecular function of RhoJ. Using timelapse microscopy RhoJ was found to regulate focal adhesion disassembly; siRNA-mediated knockdown of RhoJ increased focal adhesion disassembly time, while expression of an active mutant (daRhoJ) decreased it. Further, daRhoJ co-precipitated with the GIT-PIX complex, a regulator of focal adhesion disassembly. An interaction between daRhoJ and GIT1 was confirmed using yeast-2-hybrid, which depended on the Spa homology domain of GIT1. GIT1, GIT2, β-PIX and RhoJ all co-localised in focal adhesions and depended on each other for their recruitment to focal adhesions. Functionally, the GIT-PIX complex regulated endothelial tube formation, with knockdown of GIT1/2 or β-PIX phenocopying RhoJ knockdown. RhoJ knockout mice showed reduced tumour growth and diminished ...
FAK (focal Adhesion Kinase or PTK2) is a focal adhesion-associated protein kinase involved in cellular adhesion and spreading processes. It has been shown that when FAK was blocked, breast cancer cells became less metastatic due to decreased mobility. FAK is found concentrated in the focal adhesions that form among cells attaching to extracellular matrix constituents. FAK is a member of the FAK subfamily of protein tyrosine kinases that included PYK2 but lacks significant sequence similarity to kinases from other subfamilies. With the exception of certain types of blood cells, most cells express FAK. FAK tyrosine kinase activity can be activated, which plays a key important early step in cell migration.

AU - Naruse, Keiji. PY - 2005/4/29. Y1 - 2005/4/29. N2 - Previously we reported that a uni-axial cyclic stretch treatment of rat 3Y1 fibroblasts induced focal adhesion kinase (FAK) tyrosine phosphorylation followed by mitogen-activated protein kinase (MAPK) activation (Wang et al., 2001) [Wang, J.G., Miyazu, M., Matsushita, E., Sokabe, M., Naruse, K., 2001. Uni-axial cyclic stretch induces focal adhesion kinase (FAK) tyrosine phosphorylation followed by mitogen-activated protein kinase (MAPK) activation. Biochem. Biophys. Res. Comm. 288, 356-361]. In the present study, we investigated whether stretch-induced MAPK activation leads to proliferation of fibroblasts. 3Y1 fibroblasts were subjected to a uni-axial cyclic stretch treatment (1 Hz, 120% in length) and the bromodeoxyuridine (BrdU) incorporation was measured ...
Fak is rapidly activated and triggers the assembly of a multicomponent signaling complex that has been considered to occupy a central position in the transduction and coordination of the earlier responses of cardiac myocytes to mechanical stress. In the present study, we showed comprehensive data on Fak tyrosine phosphorylation, subcellular distribution, and interaction with C-terminal region of myosin heavy chain, providing insight on the mechanism of its activation by mechanical forces in cardiac myocytes.. By using phosphospecific antibodies against tyrosine residues of Fak and Src, we extended previous demonstration of Fak/Src signaling complex activation by mechanical stress, to show the load-induced phosphorylation of specific Fak tyrosine residues Tyr397, 576/7, 861, and 925 in the rat myocardium. These results agree with a proposed model for Fak activation triggered by autophosphorylation at Tyr397 followed by the engagement of Src, which phosphorylates additional Fak tyrosine ...
Turnover of focal adhesions allows cell retraction, which is essential for cell migration. The mammalian spectraplakin protein, ACF7 (Actin-Crosslinking Factor 7), promotes focal adhesion dynamics by targeting of microtubule plus ends towards focal adhesions. However, it remains unclear how the activity of ACF7 is regulated spatiotemporally to achieve focal adhesion-specific guidance of microtubule. To explore the potential mechanisms, we resolve the crystal structure of ACF7s NT (amino-terminal) domain, which mediates F-actin interactions. Structural analysis leads to identification of a key tyrosine residue at the calponin homology (CH) domain of ACF7, whose phosphorylation by Src/FAK (focal adhesion kinase) complex is essential for F-actin binding of ACF7. Using skin epidermis as a model system, we further demonstrate that the phosphorylation of ACF7 plays an indispensable role in focal adhesion dynamics and epidermal migration in vitro and in vivo. Altogether, our findings provide critical ...
Immunofluorescence studies with protein phosphatase-1 (PP1) isoforms-specific antibodies detected PP1δ, but not α or γ1, at focal adhesions. PP1δ also co-immunoprecipitated with the focal adhesion kinase (FAK) and the αv-integrin. In the present study glutathione S-transferase (GST)-PP1δ pulled-down FAK from fibroblasts extract and the interaction domain localized between residues 159 and 295 of δ. The association was confirmed by the ability to GST-FAK-related non-kinase (FRNK) to pull-down PP1δ from fibroblasts extract. GST-FRNK also pulled-down purified muscle PP1 catalytic subunit, thus indicating direct interaction between FAK and PP1. FAK displays consensus sequences for phosphorylation by cell division cycle kinase-2-cyclin B, and might be a PP1 substrate. In fact, FAK immunoprecipitated from metabolically-labelled mitotic HeLa cells without tyrosine phosphatase inhibitors was phosphorylated on Ser only and was dephosphorylated in vitro by purified muscle PP1, with loss of ...

GTPase regulator associated with the focal adhesion kinase (GRAF), a putative tumor suppressor gene, is found inactivated in hematopoietic malignancies by either genetic or epigenetic abnormalities. However, the expression level of GRAF gene has not yet been studied in leukemia. The aim of this study was to investigate the expression level of GRAF gene in those patients with myeloid malignancies including acute myeloid leukemia (AML), myelodysplastic syndrome (MDS) and chronic myeloid leukemia (CML). The expression levels of GRAF transcript were determined in 94 patients using real-time quantitative PCR (RQ-PCR). Clinical and laboratory data of these patients were collected and analyzed. The significantly decreased level of GRAF transcript was observed in three myeloid malignancies compared to controls. Within AML, there was no difference in the level of GRAF transcript among different FAB subtypes (P | 0.05). Difference was not observed in the amount of GRAF mRNA between CML at chronic phase and

Focal adhesions are dynamic structures in which traction forces are exerted against the substratum during cell migration and are sites for the organization of signaling complexes. Palazzo and Gundersen discuss how focal adhesions may also be the site of cross-talk between the actin-based and microtubule-based cytoskeletons. Microtubules appear to deliver factors that can regulate the formation and dissolution of focal adhesions, whereas focal adhesions contribute to microtubule localization and stability.. ...

N2 - In an attempt to study the role of Eps8 in human carcinogenesis, we observe that ectopic overexpression of Eps8 in SW480 cells (low Eps8 expression) increases cell proliferation. By contrast, expressing eps8 small interference RNA in SW620 and WiDr cells (high Eps8 expression) reduces their proliferation rate. Interestingly, attenuation of Eps8 decreases Src Pi-Tyr-416, Shc Pi-Tyr-317, and serum-induced FAK Pi-Tyr-397 and Pi-Tyr-861. Remarkably, by virtue of mammalian target of rapamycin/STAT3 Pi-Ser-727, Eps8 modulates FAK expression required for cell proliferation. Within 62% of colorectal tumor specimens examined, ...
Cell-matrix adhesions play essential roles in important biological processes including cell motility, cell proliferation, cell differentiation, regulation of gene expression and cell survival. At the cell-extracellular matrix contact points, specialized structures are formed and termed focal adhesions, where bundles of actin filaments are anchored to transmembrane receptors of the integrin family through a multi-molecular complex of junctional plaque proteins. Some of the constituents of focal adhesions participate in the structural link between membrane receptors and the actin cytoskeleton, while others are signalling molecules, including different protein kinases and phosphatases, their substrates, and various adapter proteins. Integrin signaling is dependent upon the non-receptor tyrosine kinase activities of the FAK and src proteins as well as the adaptor protein functions of FAK, src and Shc to initiate downstream signaling events. These signalling events culminate in reorganization of the ...

The goal of this study was to determine if nanoNewton scale forces applied through specific ECM-integrin focal adhesion sites could induce myogenic-like micromechanical events from single mVSMCs. Our results indicate that forces applied to an FN-induced focal adhesion site induced mVSMCs to respond with a micromyogenic event. The micromyogenic event was dependent on interactions with α5β1-integrin, αvβ3-integrin, the actin cytoskeleton, and cSrc activity. To our knowledge, this is the first study using AFM technology to quantitatively measure the mechanical responses to applied force at single focal adhesion sites formed with specific ECM proteins. In contrast to FN, force applied to focal adhesion sites induced with CNI, VN, or LN were not able to elicit the micromyogenic event, suggesting that FN could be of particular relevance to the mechanosensing and transducing pathways in mVSMCs.. In this study, we estimated the scales of time and pulling force to mimic those approximated to occur at ...
Clinical evidence implicates FAK in the development and progression of OSCC (24). Although FAK expression is restricted to the proliferative basal cell layer in healthy human oral epithelia, full-thickness FAK protein is present in premalignant OIN lesions (24). Notably, FAK contributes to essential aspects of OIN malignant transformation by facilitating basement membrane invasion and inappropriately sustaining proliferation (25). Our data demonstrate that local delivery achievable levels of 4-HPR (11) inhibit FAKs prosurvival, mobility-enhancing functions in a spectrum of cultured oral human keratinocytes that range from normal to HPV E6/E7-transduced to malignant to metastatic.. All cell lines used in this study contained subpopulations that coexpressed cytokeratin and vimentin; findings consistent with the epithelial-to-mesenchymal transition (26). Our migration and invasion data show that 4-HPR suppressed this mobile phenotype. Also, 4-HPR treatment resulted in an intracellular gradient ...

Therefore, IL 17 derived from direct contact between FLSs from RA patients and CD4 T cells, as well as that secreted by Th17 polarized cells, can induce IL 32 expres sion in FLSs from RA patients. In both cases, IL 32 expression was arrested by IL 17 blockade. These results demonstrate that IL 17, an important cytokine in RA, has a direct role Nilotinib clinical in IL 32 expression by the FLSs of RA patients. IL 32 induced the production of IL 17 in human CD4 T cells and differentiation of Th17 cells Because IL Inhibitors,Modulators,Libraries 32 can induce inflammatory cytokines, we next assessed the IL 17 production by IL 32. To determine whether IL 32 induces IL 17 production, CD4 T cells from human PBMCs were cultured with membrane bound anti CD3 antibody to activate TCRs and the expression of IL 17 increased when was stimulated with IL 32.. CD4 T cells from healthy donors were differentiated using anti CD3, anti CD28, anti IL 4, and anti IFN g, antibodies, and IL 1b and IL 6. FACS analysis ...
