Androgens Regulate SMAD Ubiquitination Regulatory Factor-1 Expression and Prostate Cancer Cell Invasion Abstract #1033

Introduction: Prostate cancer is the most commonly diagnosed male cancer and is a hormone-driven disease. Androgens have been recognized as a major promoter of PCa development and progression. However, the mechanism of androgen action in PCa, especially in PCa cell invasion remains largely unclear. SMAD ubiquitination regulatory factor-1 (SMURF1) is a C2-WW-HECT-domain E3 ubiquitin ligase that plays important roles in cancer cell metastasis. Whether there is a relationship between androgens and SMURF1 express is not known.
Aim(s): Identification of novel therapeutic targets for treatment of advanced PCa.
Materials and methods: The effect of androgens on the expression of SMURF1 in PCa cell lines was examined by Western blot and RT-PCR. The binding of AR to the SMURF1 gene enhancer was determined by chromatin immunoprecipitation (ChIP) assay, CHIP-Seq and RNA-Seq analysis. Cell migration and invasion was measured by wound healing and Matrigel invasion assays, respectively.

#2742 Anti-Tumor Effects of Semaphorin 4D Blockade Unravel a Novel Pro-Invasive Mechanism of Vascular Targeting Agents
Introduction: One of the main consequences of inhibition of neovessel growth produced by angiogenesis inhibitors is increased intratumor hypoxia. Growing evidence indicates that tumor cells escape from this hypoxic environment to better nourished locations, presenting hypoxia as a positive stimulus for invasion. Particularly, anti-VEGF/R therapies produce hypoxia-induced invasion and metastasis in a spontaneous mouse model of pancreatic neuroendocrine cancer, RIP1-Tag2.

#79 PTOV-1 overexpression in neuroendocrine tumors: a new molecular marker
Introduction: PTOV-1 (Prostate Tumor Overexpressed-1) is a novel protein encoded by 12-exon gene localized in chromosome 19q.13.3. Recently identified as an androgen-induced gene, it is involved in prostate cell proliferation and in prostate human cancer. PTOV-1 expression has been demonstrated in neuroendocrine cells of normal prostate tissue. Preliminary data indicate that PTOV-1 can be related to flotilin, integrins and other cellular factors involved in cancer progression.
