A disintegrin and metalloproteinase domain 17-epidermal growth factor receptor signaling contributes to oral cancer pain.

Cancer cells secrete pronociceptive mediators that sensitize adjacent sensory neurons and cause pain. Identification and characterization of these mediators could pinpoint novel targets for cancer pain treatment. In this study, we identified candidate genes in cancer cell lines that encode for secreted or cell surface proteins that may drive nociception. To undertake this work, we used an acute cancer pain mouse model, transcriptomic analysis of publicly available human tumor-derived cell line data, and a literature review. Cancer cell line supernatants were assigned a phenotype based on evoked nociceptive behavior in an acute cancer pain mouse model. We compared gene expression data from nociceptive and nonnociceptive cell lines. Our analyses revealed differentially expressed genes and pathways; many of the identified genes were not previously associated with cancer pain signaling. Epidermal growth factor receptor (EGFR) and disintegrin metalloprotease domain 17 (ADAM17) were identified as potential targets among the differentially expressed genes. We found that the nociceptive cell lines contained significantly more ADAM17 protein in the cell culture supernatant compared to nonnociceptive cell lines. Cytoplasmic EGFR was present in almost all (>90%) tongue primary afferent neurons in mice. Monoclonal antibody against EGFR, cetuximab, inhibited cell line supernatant-induced nociceptive behavior in an acute oral cancer pain mouse model. We infer from these data that ADAM17-EGFR signaling is involved in cancer mediator-induced nociception. The differentially expressed genes and their secreted protein products may serve as candidate therapeutic targets for oral cancer pain and warrant further evaluation.

Renal ADAM10 and 17: Their Physiological and Medical Meanings.

A disintegrin and metalloproteinases (ADAMs) are a Zn-dependent transmembrane and secreted metalloprotease superfamily, so-called "molecular scissors," and they consist of an N-terminal signal sequence, a prodomain, zinc-binding metalloprotease domain, disintegrin domain, cysteine-rich domain, transmembrane domain and cytoplasmic tail. ADAMs perform proteolytic processing of the ectodomains of diverse transmembrane molecules into bioactive mediators. This review summarizes on their most well-known members, ADAM10 and 17, focusing on the kidneys. ADAM10 is expressed in renal tubular cells and affects the expression of specific brush border genes, and its activation is involved in some renal diseases. ADAM17 is weakly expressed in normal kidneys, but its expression is markedly induced in the tubules, capillaries, glomeruli, and mesangium, and it is involved in interstitial fibrosis and tubular atrophy. So far, the various substrates have been identified in the kidneys. Shedding fragments become released ligands, such as Notch and EGFR ligands, and act as the chemoattractant factors including CXCL16. Their ectodomain shedding is closely correlated with pathological factors, which include inflammation, interstitial fibrosis, and renal injury. Also, the substrates of both ADAMs contain the molecules that play important roles at the plasma membrane, such as meaprin, E-cadherin, Klotho, and CADM1. By being released into urine, the shedding products could be useful for biomarkers of renal diseases, but ADAM10 and 17 are also notable as biomarkers. Furthermore, ADAM10 and/or 17 inhibitions based on various strategies such as small molecules, antibodies, and their recombinant prodomains are valuable, because they potentially protect renal tissues and promote renal regeneration. Although temporal and spatial regulations of inhibitors are problems to be solved, their inhibitors could be useful for renal diseases.

Non-cell-autonomous function of DR6 in Schwann cell proliferation.

Death receptor 6 (DR6) is an orphan member of the TNF receptor superfamily and controls cell death and differentiation in a cell-autonomous manner in different cell types. Here, we report an additional non-cell-autonomous function for DR6 in the peripheral nervous system (PNS). DR6-knockout (DR6 KO) mice showed precocious myelination in the PNS Using an myelination assay, we demonstrate that neuronal DR6 acts in on Schwann cells (SCs) and reduces SC proliferation and myelination independently of its cytoplasmic death domain. Mechanistically, DR6 was found to be cleaved in neurons by "a disintegrin and metalloprotease 10" (ADAM10), releasing the soluble DR6 ectodomain (sDR6). Notably, in the myelination assay, sDR6 was sufficient to rescue the DR6 KO phenotype. Thus, in addition to the cell-autonomous receptor function of full-length DR6, the proteolytically released sDR6 can unexpectedly also act as a paracrine signaling factor in the PNS in a non-cell-autonomous manner during SC proliferation and myelination. This new mode of DR6 signaling will be relevant in future attempts to target DR6 in disease settings.

ADAM8 expression in breast cancer derived brain metastases: Functional implications on MMP-9 expression and transendothelial migration in breast cancer cells.

Metastatic breast cancer affects long-term survival and is a major cause of cancer death for women worldwide. The Metalloprotease-Disintegrin ADAM8 promotes breast cancer development and brain metastasis in a mouse breast cancer model. Here, abundant ADAM8 expression was detected in primary human breast tumors and associated brain metastases. To investigate the function of ADAM8 in metastasis, MB-231 breast cancer cells with ADAM8 knockdown (MB-231_shA8) and scramble control cells (MB-231_shCtrl) were analyzed for their capability to develop metastases. In vitro, formation of metastatic complexes in hanging drops is dependent on ADAM8 and blocked by ADAM8 inhibition. MB-231_shA8 in contrast to MB-231_shCtrl cells were impaired in transmigration through an endothelial and a reconstituted blood-brain barrier. Out of 23 MMP and 22 ADAM genes, only the MMP-9 gene was affected by ADAM8 knockdown in MB-231_shA8 cells. Following re-expression of wild-type ADAM8 in contrast to ADAM8 lacking the cytoplasmic domain in MB-231_shA8 cells caused increased levels of activated pERK1/2 and pCREB (S133) that were associated with elevated MMP-9 transcription. Application of ADAM8 and MMP-9 antibodies reduced transmigration of MB-231 cells suggesting that ADAM8 affects transmigration of breast cancer cells by MMP-9 regulation. ADAM8-dependent transmigration was confirmed in Hs578t cells overexpressing ADAM8. Moreover, transmigration of MB-231 and Hs578t cells was significantly reduced for cells treated with an antibody directed against P-selectin glycoprotein ligand (PSGL-1), a substrate of ADAM8. From these data we conclude that ADAM8 promotes early metastatic processes such as transendothelial migration by upregulation of MMP-9 and shedding of PSGL-1 from breast cancer cells.

Frontline Science: Tim-3-mediated dysfunctional engulfment of apoptotic cells in SLE.

T cell Ig and mucin domain-containing molecule 3 (Tim-3) has been found to play important roles in autoimmune diseases, but whether Tim-3-mediated engulfment of apoptotic cells is involved in systemic lupus erythematosus (SLE) remains to be elucidated. In this study, we verified the role of human Tim-3 (hTim-3) as the receptor of phosphatidylserine (PS) in human embryonic kidney (HEK)293 cells, which initiated the engulfment of apoptotic cells. Both IgV and the mucin domain of Tim-3 were crucial in the phagocytosis of apoptotic cells, and there existed the key cytoplasmic domain for signal transduction. Alanine at 111, locating around the FG-CC' loop of hTim-3, was necessary for its engulfment of apoptotic cells. In accordance, Tim-3 on CD14 cells negatively correlated with the percentage of peripheral apoptotic cells in control subjects. However, although Tim-3 was significantly increased on CD14 cells in SLE patients, peripheral apoptotic cells remained much higher than those in control subjects. Tim-3 on CD14 cells showed positive correlation with percentage of apoptotic cells and level of dsDNA, indicating the involvement of Tim-3 in SLE. Accordingly, soluble Tim-3 (sTim-3) was significantly increased in plasma of SLE patients, which might contribute to higher expression of a disintegrin and metalloproteinase (ADAM)-10. Pretreatment with both plasma from SLE patients and recombinant sTim-3 greatly inhibited hTim-3-initiated phagocytosis of apoptotic cells. Furthermore, anti-Tim-3 antibody depletion of plasma from SLE patients reversed the decreased phagocytosis of apoptotic cells. Collectively, our data suggest that sTim-3 might play inhibitory roles in impaired Tim-3-mediated clearance of apoptotic cells in SLE.

Stimulated release and functional activity of surface expressed metalloproteinase ADAM17 in exosomes.

By mediating proteolytic shedding on the cell surface the disintegrin and metalloproteinases ADAM10 and ADAM17 function as critical regulators of growth factors, cytokines and adhesion molecules. We here report that stimulation of lung epithelial A549 tumor cells with phorbol-12-myristate-13-acetate (PMA) leads to the downregulation of the surface expressed mature form of ADAM17 without affecting ADAM10 expression. This reduction could not be sufficiently explained by metalloproteinase-mediated degradation, dynamin-mediated internalization or microdomain redistribution of ADAM17. Instead, surface downregulation of ADAM17 was correlated with the presence of its mature form in exosomes. Exosomal ADAM17 release was also observed in monocytic and primary endothelial cells where it could be induced by stimulation with lipopolysaccharide. Antibody-mediated surface labelling of ADAM17 revealed that at least part of exosomal ADAM17 was oriented with the metalloproteinase domain outside and had been expressed on the cell surface. Suppression of iRHOM2-mediated ADAM17 maturation prevented surface expression and exosomal release of ADAM17. Further, deletion of the protease's C-terminus or cell treatment with a calcium chelator diminished exosomal release as well as surface downregulation of ADAM17, underlining that both processes are closely associated. Co-incubation of ADAM17 containing exosomes with cells expressing the ADAM17 substrates TGFα or amphiregulin lead to increased shedding of both substrates. This was prevented when exosomes were prepared from cells with shRNA-mediated ADAM17 knockdown. These data indicate that cell stimulation can downregulate expression of mature ADAM17 from the cell surface and induce release of exosomal ADAM17, which can then distribute and contribute to substrate shedding on more distant cells.

Characterization of Mammalian ADAM2 and Its Absence from Human Sperm.

The members of the ADAM (a disintegrin and metalloprotease) family are membrane-anchored multi-domain proteins that play prominent roles in male reproduction. ADAM2, which was one of the first identified ADAMs, is the best studied ADAM in reproduction. In the male germ cells of mice, ADAM2 and other ADAMs form complexes that contribute to sperm-sperm adhesion, sperm-egg interactions, and the migration of sperm in the female reproductive tract. Here, we generated specific antibodies against mouse and human ADAM2, and investigated various features of ADAM2 in mice, monkeys and humans. We found that the cytoplasmic domain of ADAM2 might enable the differential association of this protein with other ADAMs in mice. Western blot analysis with the anti-human ADAM2 antibodies showed that ADAM2 is present in the testis and sperm of monkeys. Monkey ADAM2 was found to associate with chaperone proteins in testis. In humans, we identified ADAM2 as a 100-kDa protein in the testis, but failed to detect it in sperm. This is surprising given the results in mice and monkeys, but it is consistent with the failure of ADAM2 identification in the previous proteomic analyses of human sperm. These findings suggest that the reproductive functions of ADAM2 differ between humans and mice. Our protein analysis showed the presence of potential ADAM2 complexes involving yet-unknown proteins in human testis. Taken together, our results provide new information regarding the characteristics of ADAM2 in mammalian species, including humans.

Circulating ADAM17 Level Reflects Disease Activity in Proteinase-3 ANCA-Associated Vasculitis.

ANCA-associated vasculitides are characterized by inflammatory destruction of small vessels accompanied by enhanced cleavage of membrane-bound proteins. One of the main proteases responsible for ectodomain shedding is disintegrin and metalloproteinase domain-containing protein 17 (ADAM17). Given its potential role in aggravating vascular dysfunction, we examined the role of ADAM17 in active proteinase-3 (PR3)-positive ANCA-associated vasculitis (AAV). ADAM17 concentration was significantly increased in plasma samples from patients with active PR3-AAV compared with samples from patients in remission or from other controls with renal nonvascular diseases. Comparably, plasma levels of the ADAM17 substrate syndecan-1 were significantly enhanced in active AAV. We also observed that plasma-derived ADAM17 retained its specific proteolytic activity and was partly located on extracellular microparticles. Transcript levels of ADAM17 were increased in blood samples of patients with active AAV, but those of ADAM10 or tissue inhibitor of metalloproteinases 3, which inhibits ADAMs, were not. We also performed a microRNA (miR) screen and identified miR-634 as significantly upregulated in blood samples from patients with active AAV. In vitro, miR-634 mimics induced a proinflammatory phenotype in monocyte-derived macrophages, with enhanced expression and release of ADAM17 and IL-6. These data suggest that ADAM17 has a prominent role in AAV and might account for the vascular complications associated with this disease.

Exosomes from human immunodeficiency virus type 1 (HIV-1)-infected cells license quiescent CD4+ T lymphocytes to replicate HIV-1 through a Nef- and ADAM17-dependent mechanism.

Resting CD4+ T lymphocytes resist human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) infection. Here, we provide evidence that exosomes from HIV-1-infected cells render resting human primary CD4+ T lymphocytes permissive to HIV-1 replication. These results were obtained with transwell cocultures of HIV-1-infected cells with quiescent CD4+ T lymphocytes in the presence of inhibitors of exosome release and were confirmed using exosomes purified from supernatants of HIV-1-infected primary CD4+ T lymphocytes. We found that the expression of HIV-1 Nef in exosome-producing cells is both necessary and sufficient for cell activation as well as HIV-1 replication in target CD4+ T lymphocytes. We also identified a Nef domain important for the effects we observed, i.e., the 62EEEE65 acidic cluster domain. In addition, we observed that ADAM17, i.e., a disintegrin and metalloprotease converting pro-tumor necrosis factor alpha (TNF-α) in its mature form, associates with exosomes from HIV-1-infected cells, and plays a key role in the HIV-1 replication in quiescent CD4+ T lymphocytes. Treatment with an inhibitor of ADAM17 abolished both activation and HIV-1 replication in resting CD4+ T lymphocytes. TNF-α is the downstream effector of ADAM17 since the treatment of resting lymphocytes with anti-TNF-α antibodies blocked the HIV-1 replication. The data presented here are consistent with a model where Nef induces intercellular communication through exosomes to activate bystander quiescent CD4+ T lymphocytes, thus stimulating viral spread.

Investigation of the expression and functional significance of the novel mouse sperm protein, a disintegrin and metalloprotease with thrombospondin type 1 motifs number 10 (ADAMTS10).

Fertilization represents the culmination of a series of complex interactions between male and female gametes. Despite advances in our understanding, the precise molecular mechanisms underlying these fundamental interactions remain largely uncharacterized. There is however growing recognition that this process requires the concerted action of multiple sperm receptors that possess affinity for complementary zona pellucida ligands and those that reside on the surface of the oolemma. Among the candidate sperm proteins that have been implicated in fertilization, those belonging to the ADAM (a disintegrin and metalloprotease) family of proteases have received considerable attention. The focus of the studies described herein has been the characterization of a closely related member of this protease family, ADAMTS10 (a disintegrin and metalloprotease with thrombospondin type 1 motifs number 10). We have demonstrated that ADAMTS10 is expressed during the later stages of mouse spermatogenesis and incorporated into the acrosomal domain of developing spermatids. During sperm maturation, the protein appears to be processed before being expressed on the surface of the peri-acrosomal region of the head. Our collective data suggest that, from this position, ADAMTS10 participates in sperm adhesion to the zona pellucida. Indeed, pre-incubation of capacitated spermatozoa with either galardin, a broad spectrum inhibitor of metalloprotease activity, or anti-ADAMTS10 antisera elicited a significant reduction in their ability to engage in zona adhesion. Overall, these studies support the notion that sperm-oocyte interactions involve considerable functional redundancy and identify ADAMTS10 as a novel candidate in the mediation of these fundamentally important events.
