Title: Time-course effect of estradiol and ERa17p on Early Gene expression in SKBR3 cells      
dateReleased:

description:
ERα17p is a synthetic peptide corresponding to the sequence P295LMIKRSKKNSLALSLT311 of the estrogen receptor alpha (ERα) and initially synthesized to mimic its calmodulin binding site. ERα17p was subsequently found to elicit estrogenic responses in E2-deprived ERα-positive breast cancer cells, increasing proliferation and E2-dependent gene transcription. Surprisingly, in E2-supplemented media, ERα17p induced apoptosis and modified the actin network, influencing thereby cell motility. Here, we report that ERα17p induces a massive early (3h) transcriptional activity in breast cancer cell lines SKBR3). Remarkably, about 75% of the significantly modified transcripts were also modified by E2, confirming the pro-estrogenic profile of ERα17p. The different ER spectra of the used cell lines allowed us to extract a specific ERα17p signature related to ERα and its variant ERα36. With respect to ERα, the peptide activates nuclear (cell cycle, cell proliferation, nucleic acid and protein synthesis) and extranuclear signaling pathways. In contrast, through ERα36 it exerts inhibitory events on inflammation and cell cycle and inhibition of EGFR signaling. This is the first work reporting ERα36 specific transcriptional effects. The fact that a number ERα17p-induced transcripts is different from those activated by E2 revealed that the apoptosis and actin modifying effects of ERα17p are independent from the ER-related actions of the peptide. Cells after a 4h incubation with medium containing 10% charcoal stripped FBS were incubated with or without E2 (10-6M) or ERa17p in RPMI 1640 supplemented with 10% charcoal stripped FBS, for 3 hours. Total RNA was isolated using Nucleospin II columns (Macheray-Nagel, Dttren, Germany), according to the manufacturer’s instructions. RNA was labeled and hybridized according to the Affymetrix protocol (Affymetrix Gene-Chip Expression Analysis Technical Manual), using the HGU133A plus 2 chip, analyzing a total of 54675 transcripts. Signals were detected by an Affymetrix microarray chip reader.
