HIF-1a Determines the Metastatic Potential of the GEP-NET Cell Line BON-1 Abstract #466

Introduction: Intratumoral hypoxia is a hallmark of solid tumor formation and a negative predictor of patient survival. Adaptation to hypoxia is mainly achieved by the transcription factor HIF-1a, which is upregulated in a diverse range of human and experimental tumors and their metastases. HIF-1a target genes have been implicated in the induction of invasion and metastasis. However, HIF-1a’s tumor-supporting action depends on cell type and microenvironment and the precise role of HIF-1a for the pathogenesis of neuroendocrine tumors (NET) is largely unknown.
Aim(s): Molecular analysis of HIF-1a’s role in the pathobiology of gastroenteropancreatic neuroendocrine tumors (GEP-NET).
Materials and methods: Functional inactivation of HIF-1a was achieved by lentiviral-mediated siRNA transduction. Substrate-independent growth was analyzed by colony formation assay. Migration capacity was examined via wound healing assays.

#770 The Axon Guidance Molecules Slit2 and Robo Control Motility and Growth of Pancreatic Neuroendocrine Tumor Cells
Introduction: Dense vascularization and high frequency of metastasis in pancreatic neuroendocrine tumors (pNET) suggest a central role for the interaction of tumor cells and vessels. Slit2 and its receptors Robo1 and Robo4 act as guidance cues in neurogenesis, angiogenesis and epithelial morphogenesis, and hence represent attractive candidate regulators at the tumor cell/stroma interface.

#246 SDHB Loss Predicts Malignancy in Pheochromocytomas/Sympathethic Paragangliomas, but Not Through Hypoxia Signalling
Introduction: To date there is no reliable histopathological marker of malignancy for pheochromocytomas/sympathetic paragangliomas (PCC/PGL). It is well-known that PCC/PGL in the hereditary context of an SDHB germline mutation very often metastasize. The immunohistochemical loss of SDHB expression was recently shown to be a surrogate marker for the presence of an SDH germline mutation in PCC/PGL. SDHB loss is supposed to be tumorigenic via activation of hypoxia signals.
