Title: Transcription profiling by array of four human breast cancer cell lines treated with protein kinase C (PKC)-activator Phorbol 12-myristate 13-acetate (PMA) to study the signalling pathway leading to L-plastin Ser5 phosphorylation which was shown to be crucial for invasion and metastasis

description:
Deregulated cell migration and invasion, which are hallmarks of metastatic cancer cells, are correlated to structural and functional alterations of the actin cytoskeleton associated to a large panel of actin-binding proteins. Among these, the actin-bundling protein L-plastin, initially detected in leukocytes, is ectopically expressed in several solid tumours and is often considered as a metastatic marker. Phosphorylation of L-plastin on residue serine 5 (Ser5) has been shown to activate L-plastin and to be crucial for invasion and metastasis formation. Here, we investigate the signalling pathway leading to L-plastin Ser5 phosphorylation in four breast cancer cell lines. Whole genome microarray analysis comparing cell lines with different invasive capacities and corresponding L-plastin Ser5 phosphorylation levels revealed that genes of the MAPK/ERK pathway are differentially expressed. In line, in vitro kinase assays showed that MAPK/ERK pathway downstream kinases RSK1 and RSK2 are able to directly phosphorylate L-plastin on Ser5. In parallel to a knockdown approach, activation and inhibition studies of signalling molecules of the MAPK/ERK pathway, followed by computational modelling analysis, confirmed that RSK is an important activator of L-plastin in all four studied cell lines. Finally and rounding up our study, RSK knockdown significantly impaired migratory and invasive capacities of a selected invasive cell line, thus consolidating RSK as a promising therapeutic target in certain invasive carcinomas. Altogether, our data provide substantial evidence that the MAPK/ERK pathway is involved in L-plastin Ser5 phosphorylation in breast cancer cells with its downstream kinases RSK1 and RSK2 being able to directly phosphorylate L-plastin on Ser5.
