The Chemokine Receptor CXCR4 – Differential Expression in Bronchopulmonary Neuroendocrine Neoplasms Abstract #833

Introduction: The CXCR4 is a plasma membrane chemokine receptor, which is involved in organogenesis, hematopoiesis and inflammation. Additionally, an over-expression is described for many neoplastic tissues. Here, an involvement in tumor progression, metastasis, adaptation to hypoxia and in stem cell survival is postulated.
Aim(s): In the present study, the expression of the CXCR4 was evaluated in a panel of neuroendocrine tumors of the lung, comprising typical carcinoids (TC), atypical carcinoids (AC) and small cell lung cancer (SCLC).
Materials and methods: CXCR4 expression was assessed by means of immunohistochemistry (IHC) using the novel rabbit anti-CXCR4 antibody UMB-2 and by qRT-PCR. The staining was quantified with three different scoring systems. Both IHC and qRT-PCR results were correlated with patient data. Additionally, endogenous CXCR4 expression was assessed in different cancer cell lines by means of immunocytochemistry.

Introduction: The chemokine receptor CXCR4 interacts with the ligand CXCL12 to exert proliferative and chemotactic effects. CXCR4 activates mTOR through phosphorylation of its two effectors downstream:4EBP1and S6K
