The fold change of the ΔCT compared to HPRT was utilized for analysis (2-ΔCT). In summary, the localization of Lgl2 to the basolateral cell domain in normal gastric epithelium is consistent with its proposed function in control of cell polarity. Overall, these data demonstrate that loss of apicobasal polarity, but not the AJ marker E-cadherin, corresponds with decreased cellular differentiation in low-grade endometrial tumors. Loss of polarity is closely associated with advanced or metastatic tumors and epithelial-to-mesenchymal transition (EMT), a transcriptional program that down-regulates the AJ protein, E-cadherin .

The ability of polarity protein disruption to affect epithelial differentiation and proliferation may be at least partially mediated through the Notch pathway, specifically through localization of Notch receptors and ligands. To examine the underlying signaling pathways that could regulate differentiation in cells with disrupted polarity we utilized our Scr-shRNA, Par3-kd and Ezrin-kd MDCK cells. Freeman GH, Halton JH .

Cells overexpressing Par3 were treated with DAPT and the rate of migration and proliferation were measured. We like to see loss of nuclear polarity ("rounding up" of nuclei) before making this diagnosis. We observed a significant decrease in the expression of Notch receptors (Fig 4A and 4B) (S3 Fig), Notch ligands (Fig 4C and 4D) (S3 Fig), and Notch downstream targets (Fig 4E–4G) (S3 Fig) in both Par3-kd and Ezrin-kd cells indicating that altered apicobasal polarity disrupts Notch signaling in this mammalian cell-based model.

The two histological main types of gastric carcinoma: diffuse and so-called intestinal-type carcinoma. Lgl2 expression was limited to the basolateral cell domain, consistent with localization of Lgl in epithelial cells of model organisms.19, 25 The intensity of staining progressively increased from the base of the gastric pits, where less-differentiated cells are located, to the mucosal surface, suggesting that Lgl2 expression is a feature of more differentiated cells. The Par3-kd and Ezrin-kd cells displayed high concentrations of ZO-1 at tricellular contacts; however ZO-1 levels were low or absent at other apical contact points (Fig 3G–3I, 3G’–3I’ and 3J–3L). Mammalian Lgl forms a protein complex with PAR-6 and aPKC independently of PAR-3 to regulate epithelial cell polarity. Albertson R, Doe CQ . In: Hamilton SR, Aaltonen LA (eds). HES-1 was found to increase when Par3 was overexpressed in either Hec-1-A or Ishikawa cells (Fig 7C, S5 Fig).

Program of Genes and Development, Graduate School of Biomedical Sciences, University of Texas Health Sciences Center, Houston, TX, United States of America, The sections were first blocked for endogenous nonspecific protein and peroxidase activity with an application of Dual Endogenous Block (Dako Corporation) for 10 min, followed by a buffer wash. Complete loss of immunoreactivity was significantly more often observed in diffuse-type than in intestinal-type adenocarcinomas (79 vs 48%, respectively). To determine the status of apicobasal polarity in EEC, we first examined the localization of the apical protein, Ezrin or the apical polarity protein, Par3 in normal endometrium in comparison to the localization of the adherens junction protein E-cadherin. Cell lysates (30 μg total protein) were loaded onto SDS-PAGE gels and transferred to a PVDF membrane. By restoring RhoA activity in mice, ducts maintained lumen and cell polarity. Bradford assays were used to quantify the amount of proteins. We have shown that the loss of expression of Lgl2 or its aberrant localization is closely associated with gastric epithelial dysplasia and gastric adenocarcinoma. The Par3-myc construct was obtained from the Macara lab and has been previously described [35]. Reduced expression of Hugl-1, the human homologue of Drosophila tumour suppressor gene lgl, contributes to progression of colorectal cancer. All specimens had been formalin fixed, paraffin embedded, and processed routinely. On the basis of Lauren classification, we observed that 44 gastric adenocarcinomas were of the intestinal type, 24 were of diffuse type, and 9 of various patterns (mixed type: 5; mucinous type: 2; and with lymphoid stroma/medullary: 2).

Loss of cell polarity and subsequent tissue disorganization is a hallmark of cancer . Loss of anti-Lgl2 immunoreactivity in gastric dysplasia and adenocarcinoma. (a) Western blot analysis of Par3 in control transfection (control) and Myc-Par3 overexpression Hec-1-A cells. All specimens of normal gastric epithelia, including 14 antrum, 14 corpus, and 13 cardia, showed basolateral anti-Lgl2 immunoreactivity. Increased migration is a hallmark of metastatic cancer cells so migration was examined in the cultured endometrial cancer cell lines in the presence or absence of Par3. Par3-kd, Ezrin-kd, and Scr-shRNA had at least 49 cysts, 13 cysts, or 70 cysts examined per independent experiment. Lgl2 staining was either lost or exhibited aberrant localization in all cases of flat low-grade gastric epithelial dysplasia. (f) Quantification of the number of BrdU positive cells in Fig 3M’–3O’.

PubMed  Supervision, Our results show that Lgl2 expression is either lost or exhibits aberrant localization in almost all cases of gastric epithelial dysplasia and adenocarcinomas. To address this issue, we depleted the Par3 polarity gene by RNAi in combination with oncogenic Notch or Ras61L expression in the murine mammary gland. In addition to proper organization of the endometrial epithelium, the menstrual cycle and reproductive abilities also require differentiation of the epithelial cells [8,9]. https://doi.org/10.1371/journal.pone.0189081.g005. Asterisks indicate glandular lumen and arrows show apical localizing protein (a’) Ezrin or (d’) Par3. Interestingly, although apicobasal polarity was disrupted (Fig 1), E-cadherin remained present and localized to the basolateral membranes of glandular epithelial cells in G1 and G2 EEC (Fig 2A–2C, 2A’–2C’ and 2E). The intensity of staining was semiquantitatively scored as weak, moderate, or strong. Cultures were blocked for 1 hour in PBST/0.2% Triton/1% BSA/10% FBS and then left overnight at room temperature with primary antibodies in blocking buffer. Mikhail Lisovsky. Our data demonstrate that apicobasal polarity is disrupted in low-grade endometrial cancer prior to disruption of cell adhesion. Yes Grifoni D, Garoia F, Schimanski CC, et al.

However, the specific molecular mechanisms supporting tumor initiation and progression are poorly understood. No significant association was found between the grade or stage of intestinal-type adenocarcinoma and anti-Lgl2 staining pattern. The selected monoclonal antibody (see below) was titrated out to achieve the best resolution of basolateral staining from the background. In this group, negative staining was observed in 30 (69%) cases as the only or major pattern (Figure 2e and f; Table 2). To determine whether establishment of apicobasal polarity alters differentiation or proliferation in endometrial cancer, we assayed endometrial cancer cell lines for changes in apical polarity proteins. To obtain However, intestinal differentiation cannot explain the loss or aberrant localization in foveolar (gastric)-type dysplasia and in diffuse-type adenocarcinoma, neither of which is known to have close association with intestinal differentiation. The stable cytoarchitecture of normal differentiated epithelia depends on the preserved apical–basal polarity of constituent cells. The histological diagnosis of gastric epithelial dysplasia, a precursor lesion of gastric adenocarcinoma, can be challenging. https://doi.org/10.1371/journal.pone.0189081.g003.

Secondary antibodies were put on the next day for at least 30 minutes. Future studies examining how apicobasal polarity and/or downstream signaling pathways can be manipulated in dynamic tissues such as the endometrium could lead to better therapeutic strategies for patients with endometrial cancer, thus resulting in improved future overall health for the patient. The PI3K/PTEN and Ras/Raf/MEK signaling pathways are often altered in endometrial cancer [20]. beta-Catenin mutation is a frequent cause of Wnt pathway activation in gastric cancer. The gamma-secretase inhibitor DAPT (Sigma) was placed on cells at a concentration of 1 μg/ml in new media and cells were provided fresh DAPT and media every 24 hours for 48 hours for BrdU and expression experiments and up to 72 hours for migration experiments. Previous studies have linked disruption of the Akt/PTEN pathway, one of the most common pathways altered in endometrial cancer, with aberrant Notch signaling in prostate cancer [60,61]. here. Resources, Gut 1999;45:784–790. Polarity therapy involves five basic elements (ether, air, fire, water and earth) that affect five distinct energy centres. Asterisks indicate glandular lumen. PubMed  Indeed, disruption of polarity in epithelial cells caused a significant decrease in phenotypes associated with changes in cellular differentiation, specifically TJ formation, the presence of cilia and a decrease in overall proliferation. (c) qRT-PCR analysis of the Notch target HES-1 in parental, Par3 overexpression and DAPT treated Hec-1-A cells. The most important feature we look for: loss of nuclear polarity. (d-g, d’-g’) Staining of parental (d, f) and Par3 overexpressing (e, g) Hec-1-A cells. Yes Other things: tumor giant cells, ischemic necrosis (from tumor cells outgrowing their blood supply) Can you find these characteristics in the above image? Additionally, overexpression of Par3 in the endometrial cancer lines increased Notch signaling in turn decreasing proliferation and migration that can be reversed by treating cells with the gamma-secretase inhibitor DAPT. Error bars represent SEM. Indeed, negative staining was observed significantly more often in diffuse gastric adenocarcinomas than in the intestinal-type adenocarcinomas. Project administration, We propose that Lgl2 may be a potential marker to rule out gastric epithelial dysplasia and adenocarcinoma in diagnostic specimens. Additionally, we observed an overall decrease in the presence of cilia (Fig 3A–3C and 3E) analogous to our observations in endometrial cancer (S2 Fig). RNA pellets were dissolved in 30–50 μL of DEPC water at 55°C. Validation, Previous work has demonstrated that overall levels of active Notch intracellular domain is critical for downstream Notch signaling suggesting that Notch1 and/or Notch2 protein could be regulated in other manners in low-grade EEC [32,51]. However, Notch acts as a tumor suppressor in keratinocytes where Notch deficiency causes increased proliferation and decreased differentiation leading to basal cell carcinoma-like tumors [28,29]. It is disturbed orientation of anaplastic cells. Program of Genes and Development, Graduate School of Biomedical Sciences, University of Texas Health Sciences Center, Houston, TX, United States of America, Roles Data points are divided between specific figures on distinct tabs. Patterns of Lgl2 expression were scored as basolateral, cytoplasmic, and negative (no immunoreactivity present). (g’-l’) Images of (g-l) with Notch1 or Notch2 respectively showing localization to the lumen (*). here. Primary antibody was added overnight at 4°C. Endometrioid endometrial carcinoma (EEC) is the most common histotype, accounting for 80% of endometrial cancers [17,18]. Yes Article  Interference with Par6 signaling blocked TGF -dependent loss of polarity in acini-like structures formed by non-transformed mammary cells grown in three-dimen- sional structures and suppressed the protrusive morphology of mesenchymal-like invasive mammary tumor cells without rescuing E-cadherin expression. RNA was purified with 100% isopropanol and 75% ethanol. Cells were fixed 48 hours after original transfection. Expression of activated RasV12 in clones of cells of the eye disk produced noninvasive tumors. Because the loss of polarity causes a decrease in Notch signaling in epithelial cells, we postulate that establishment of apicobasal polarity is critical for normal differentiation and proliferation through signaling pathways such as Notch. (m-o) Increased BrdU incorporation observed in Par3-kd and Ezrin-kd cell lines compared to the Scr-shRNA cells. Immunostaining was performed on 5-μm sections. However, there was no correlation between the grade of intestinal-type adenocarcinoma and staining pattern. * <0.05. Sheets and large masses of tumor cells grow in disorganized fashion. Western blot analysis revealed that Par3 was not readily detected in a majority of the endometrial cancer cell lines (S4 Fig). All authors received training on working with and the ethics of human specimen research from MD Anderson Cancer Center. We determined Par3 expressing cells treated with DAPT had similar amounts of migration as either Hec-1-A or Ishikawa parental cell lines respectively treated with DAPT (Fig 7A, 7F, 7G, 7F’, 7G’, 7F” and 7G”; S5 Fig). The epithelium of the endometrium, the primary cell type thought to give rise to cancer, is shed and re-established after each menstrual cycle [8,9]. In this study, we showed that the cell polarity protein Lgl2 was expressed in normal gastric epithelium but was absent in small and large intestine, biliary and pancreatic ducts, and esophagus. All tissue samples and cells were visualized using a Nikon A1 laser scanning confocal microscope. Brumby AM, Richardson HE . MDCK cells were infected with the virus and polybrene (1 μg/mL) in DMEM with 10% FBS. Par3 overexpression was found to decrease the rate of migration in Hec-1-A cells (Fig 7A, 7D, 7E, 7D’, 7E’, 7D”and 7E”). This study shows that loss of apicobasal polarity in low-grade endometrial cancer is independent of the loss of adherens junctions. Absence of anti-Lgl2 staining was the only or major pattern in 16 (69%) cases, including 1 case of foveolar/gastric-type dysplasia (Figure 2c and d; Table 2). These data provide evidence that expression and apical localization of Par3 is critical for the proper differentiation of the endometrial epithelial cells, and that disruption of apicobasal polarity affects the ability of endometrial epithelium to regulate differentiation and proliferation (Fig 6J). Giant cell may possess a single huge nucleus or … Oncogene 2004;23:8688–8694. 2008;42:517-40. https://doi.org/10.1371/journal.pone.0189081, Editor: Mirjam M. Zegers, NCMLS, Radboud University Nijmegen Medical Center, NETHERLANDS, Received: March 28, 2017; Accepted: November 18, 2017; Published: December 5, 2017. In T-cell acute lymphoblastic leukemia, Notch displays oncogenic properties: activating mutations in Notch receptors drive downstream signaling that promotes proliferation [26]. The decrease in Notch signaling, along with the mislocalization of Notch receptors, implies that polarity is critical for proper membrane partitioning of Notch receptors in the endometrium. Additionally, we detected a significant decrease in the transcript levels of the Notch receptor, Notch4 but no decrease in Notch1 or Notch2 (Fig 5A–5C). (a) Quantification of cell migration for parental Hec-1-A cells, Par3 overexpression Hec-1-A cells, and Hec-1-A cells treated the gamma secretase inhibitor (DAPT) to block Notch signaling. Four techniques are used to restore polarity: therapeutic touch or bodywork, enhancing awareness, diet (liver flush drink, “live foods”, i.e., fruits and vegetables) and stretching exercises. (i) Quantification of BrdU incorporation in the parental (n = 3) and Par3 overexpression Hec-1-A (n = 3) cells for at least three ROI per experiment. Consequently, absence of Lgl2 staining cannot distinguish dysplasia from intestinal metaplasia with reactive change. (a-f) qRT-PCR of Notch receptors, ligands, and downstream targets in normal and in low-grade endometrial cancer (G1 & G2 EEC). In addition, when cells were treated with DAPT there was a decrease in HES-1 in both parental and Par3 overexpression cell lines demonstrating that Notch signaling was blocked in both cell lines (Fig 7C, S5 Fig). Yes For Human Endometrial Tissue Samples: The qRT-PCR was performed as indicated by Schlumbrecht et al. A correct polarized architecture is necessary for hepatic epithelial cell function, and loss of hepatic apicobasal polarity is a hallmark of liver pathology. Recent characterization of the molecular basis of cell polarity allows its function in neoplasia to be deciphered. Additionally, BrdU incorporation was similar between parental cell lines and Par3 overexpression cell lines when treated with DAPT (Fig 7B, 7H”, 7I”, 7H”‘ and 7I”‘; S5 Fig). The goal of our study was to test the hypothesis that Lgl2 protein expression and/or localization are disrupted in gastric epithelial dysplasia and adenocarcinoma. Click through the PLOS taxonomy to find articles in your field. No, Is the Subject Area "Endometrium" applicable to this article?
