Title: Identifying the downstream effectors of E2F7 in squamous cell carcinoma (SCC) cells      
dateReleased:
05-30-2014
description:
Advanced head and neck squamous cell carcinomas (HNSCC) are frequently drug resistant and have a mortality rate of 40%. We have previously shown that E2F7 may contribute to drug sensitivity. In the present study, we conducted an –omics screen to identify factors that were responsible for E2F7-dependent resistance to anthracyclines by HNSCC. We provide, in vitro, in vivo and patient data that identifies the existence of a novel E2F7/Sphingosine kinase 1/Sphingosine-1-phosphate/AKT axis that regulates sensitivity to anthracyclines in HNSCC. Specifically, we show that E2F7-dependent sensitivity to doxorubicin occurs via induction of the sphingosine kinase 1/AKT axis. We also show that pharmacological inhibition of Sphingosine kinase 1 or AKT sensitizes SCC cells to the cytotoxic actions of doxorubicin in vitro and in vivo. Combined, these findings highlight a novel mechanism through which SCC cells acquire resistance to anthracyclines and identify specific pharmacological combinations that could be used to treat SCC. Duplicate total RNA isolated from i) untreated, KJD cells, ii) 1µM doxorubicin-treated KJD cells, iii) control plasmid (pcDNA3) transfected, untreated KJD cells, iv) control plasmid (pcDNA3) transfected, 1µM doxorubicin-treated KJD cells, v) E2F7 expression plasmid transfected, untreated KJD cells, vi) E2F7 expression plasmid transfected, 1µM doxorubicin-treated KJD cells, vii) untreated, SCC25 cells, viii) 1µM doxorubicin-treated SCC25 cells, ix) control siRNA (GFPsiRNA) transfected, untreated SCC25 cells, x) control siRNA (GFPsiRNA) transfected, 1µM doxorubicin-treated SCC25 cells, xi) E2F7siRNA transfected, untreated SCC25 cells, xii) E2F7siRNA transfected, 1µM doxorubicin-treated SCC25 cells were hybridised to an RNA microarray to identify genes which are downstream of E2F7 and regulate chemosensitivity in SCC.
