Differential effects of two-pore channel protein 1 and 2 silencing in MDA-MB-468 breast cancer cells
Jahidin, Aisyah H., Stewart, Teneale A., Thompson, Erik W., Roberts-Thomson, Sarah J., & Monteith, Gregory R. (2016) Differential effects of two-pore channel protein 1 and 2 silencing in MDA-MB-468 breast cancer cells. Biochemical and Biophysical Research Communications, 477(4), pp. 731-736.
Two-pore channel proteins, TPC1 and TPC2, are calcium permeable ion channels found localized to the membranes of endolysosomal calcium stores. There is increasing interest in the role of TPC-mediated intracellular signaling in various pathologies; however their role in breast cancer has not been extensively evaluated. TPC1 and TPC2 mRNA was present in all non-tumorigenic and tumorigenic breast cell lines assessed. Silencing of TPC2 but not TPC1 attenuated epidermal growth factor-induced vimentin expression in MDA-MB-468 breast cancer cells. This effect was not due to a general inhibition of epithelial to mesenchymal transition (EMT) as TPC2 silencing had no effect on epidermal growth factor (EGF)-induced changes on E-cadherin expression. TPC1 and TPC2 were also shown to differentially regulate cyclopiazonic acid (CPA)-mediated changes in cytosolic free Ca2+. These findings indicate potential differential regulation of signaling processes by TPC1 and TPC2 in breast cancer cells. © 2016 Elsevier Inc.
Impact and interest:
Citation counts are sourced monthly from and citation databases.
These databases contain citations from different subsets of available publications and different time periods and thus the citation count from each is usually different. Some works are not in either database and no count is displayed. Scopus includes citations from articles published in 1996 onwards, and Web of Science® generally from 1980 onwards.
Citations counts from theindexing service can be viewed at the linked Google Scholar™ search.
