Breast cancer cutaneous metastases are associated to uMUC1 and sialyl Lewis x and to highly malignant primary tumors.

Breast cancer spreading to different organs have been related to different molecules and mechanisms, but cutaneous metastasis remains unexplored. Increasing evidence showed that MUC1 and some of its carbohydrate associated antigens may be implicated in breast cancer metastasis. In this study we analyzed these tumor markers in order to identify breast cancer cutaneous metastatic profiles. A cohort of 26 primary tumors from breast cancer patients with cutaneous metastases were included; also, cutaneous and lymphatic node metastatic samples and primary tumors from breast cancer patients without metastases were analysed. Immunohistochemical (IHC) studies demonstrated that both underglycosylated MUC1 (uMUC1) and sialyl Lewis x (sLex) to be positively associated with cutaneous metastatic primary tumors (p < 0.05). Notably, a high percentage of tumors with cutaneous metastases were characterized as triple negative and Her2+ tumors (37.5 % and 29 %, respectively). Some discordant results were found between primary tumors and their matched cutaneous metastases. To determine if MUC1 variants may be carriers of carbohydrate antigens, subcellular fractions from a cutaneous metastatic lesion were obtained, immunoprecipitated and analyzed by Western blot. We found that the isolated uMUC1 with a molecular weight of>200 kDa was also the site for binding of anti-sLex MAb; in coincidence, a high correlation of positive IHC expression of both markers was observed. Our findings confirm that breast cancer cutaneous metastases were associated to highly malignant primary tumors and sustain the hypothesis that u-MUC1 and sLe x may drive breast cancer cutaneous metastases.

The physiological and pathological roles and applications of sialyl Lewis x, a common carbohydrate ligand of the three selectins.

In the past decades, the roles of carbohydrates in living organisms and their potential use in many fields have been extensively investigated. Sialyl Lewis x (sLe), a member of body carbohydrate, is an inherent blood-type tetrasaccharide on the surface of different cells, the lymphocyte, neutrophil, some T cells, multiple tumor cells and so on. SLe is a common ligand of the three selectins, L-selectin, E-selectin and P-selectin, and plays important roles in multiple physiological phenomenas by interacting with selectins. Under normal physiological conditions, sLe can affect the immune process and fertilization process. Lower expression of sLe could cause leukocyte adhesion defects (LAD) II. Overexpression of sLe on the other hand has been linked to several cancers including melanoma, breast, pancreatic, liver, lung, head and neck, ovarian, bladder carcinomas and some blood disease including Hodgkin disease, some B cell chronic lymphocytic leukemias, acute lymphoblastic leukemias, and most acute nonlymphocytic leukemias. This paper mainly reviews the physiological functions and pathological effects of sLe and its applications in disease diagnosis, drug delivery, gene transfer and medical molecular imaging. We aim to help researchers and other readers quickly grasp the physiological and pathological roles and its medical applications of sLe, and give some suggestions for research directions.

BGN/TLR4/NF-B Mediates Epigenetic Silencing of Immunosuppressive Siglec Ligands in Colon Cancer Cells.

Human Toll-like receptor (TLR) signaling plays a vital role in intestinal inflammation by activating the NF-B pathway. By querying GENT2 datasets, we identified the gene expression level of TLR2 and TLR4 as being substantially increased in colorectal cancer. Introduction of shRNAs for TLR4 but not TLR2 dramatically recovered disialyl Lewis and sialyl 6-sulfo Lewis glycans, which are preferentially expressed in non-malignant colonic epithelial cells and could serve as ligands for the immunosuppressive molecule Siglec-7. We screened several TLR4 ligands and found that among them BGN is highly expressed in cancers and is involved in the epigenetic silencing of Siglec-7 ligands. Suppression of BGN expression substantially downregulated NF-B activity and the marker H3K27me3 in the promoter regions of the SLC26A2 and ST6GalNAc6 genes, which are involved in the synthesis of those glycans, and restored expression of normal glycans as well as Siglec-7 binding activities. We show that in the presence of TLR4, inflammatory stimuli initiate a positive loop involving NF-B that activates BGN and further enhances TLR4 activity. Present findings indicate a putative mechanism for the promotion of carcinogenesis by loss of immunosuppressive ligands by the BGN/TLR4/ NF-B pathway.

Sulphated and sialylated N-glycans in the echinoderm reflect its marine habitat and phylogeny.

Amongst the earliest deuterostomes, the echinoderms are an evolutionary important group of ancient marine animals. Within this phylum, the holothuroids (sea cucumbers) are known to produce a wide range of glycoconjugate biopolymers with apparent benefits to health; therefore, they are of economic and culinary interest throughout the world. Other than their highly modified glycosaminoglycans (e.g. fucosylated chondroitin sulphate and fucoidan), nothing is known about their protein-linked glycosylation. Here, we used multi-step N-glycan fractionation to efficiently separate the anionic and neutral N-glycans before analyzing the N-glycans of the black sea cucumber (Holothuria atra) by MS in combination with enzymatic and chemical treatments. These analyses showed the presence of various fucosylated, phosphorylated, sialylated and multiply sulphated moieties as modifications of oligomannosidic, hybrid and complex-type N-glycans. The high degree of sulphation and fucosylation parallels the modifications previously observed on holothuroid glycosaminoglycans. Compatible with its phylogenetic position, H. atra not only expresses vertebrate motifs such as sulpho- and sialyl-Lewis A epitopes, but displays a high degree of anionic substitution of its glycans as observed in other marine invertebrates. Thus, as for other echinoderms, the phylum- and order-specific aspects of this species' N-glycosylation reveal both invertebrate- and vertebrate-like features.
