Title: Foxp3 is a key downstream regulator of p53-mediated cellular senescence      
dateReleased:

description:
The downstream events and target genes of p53 in senescence responses are not fully understood. Here, we report a novel function of the forkhead transcription factor Foxp3, a key player in mediating T cell inhibitory function, in p53-mediated cellular senescence. Overexpression of Foxp3 in mouse embryonic fibroblasts (MEFs) accelerates senescence, whereas Foxp3 knockdown leads to escape from p53-mediated senescence in p53-expressing MEFs. Consistently, Foxp3 expression resulted in the induction of senescence in epithelial cancer cells, including MCF7 and HCT116. Foxp3 overexpression also increased the intracellular levels of reactive oxygen species (ROS). The ROS inhibitor N-acetyl-L-cysteine rescued Foxp3 expression-induced senescence. Furthermore, the elevated ROS levels that accompanied Foxp3 overexpression were paralleled by an increase in p21 expression. Knockdown of p21 in Foxp3-expressing MEFs abrogated the Foxp3-dependent increase in ROS levels, indicating that Foxp3 acts through p21 induction and subsequent ROS elevation to trigger senescence. Collectively, these results suggest that Foxp3 is a downstream target of p53 that is sufficient to induce p21 expression and ROS production and is necessary for p53-mediated senescence. control and treated samples (human), young passage (p3) or old passage (p7) samples (mouse)
