Abstract:
Id helix-loop-helix (HLH) proteins function as regulators of cell growth and differentiation and when overexpressed can induce malignant transformation. In a series of 34 cases of primary human colorectal adenocarcinoma, immunoreactivity for Id1, Id2, and Id3 was found to be significantly elevated in tumor compared with normal mucosa (P = 0.001 for Id1 and Id2; P = 0.002 for Id3). No elevation of Id expression was observed in 17 cases of adenoma. Expression of Id1 and to a lesser extent of Id2 was correlated with mitotic index (P = 0.005 for Id1; P = 0.042 for Id2) in human adenocarcinomas, and expression of all three Id proteins was correlated with p53 immunoreactivity (a marker of mutational 'inactivation' of p53 function; P = 0.002 for Id1; P = 0.006 for Id2; P = 0.016 for Id3). In normal intestinal mucosa of p53-null mice and in spontaneous tumors arising in Min+/- mice, expression of all three Id proteins was also found to be up-regulated. Antisense oligonucleotide blockade of Id protein expression inhibited the proliferation of human adenocarcinoma cells. Enforced, ectopic expression of the E47 basic HLH (bHLH) protein in human adenocarcinoma cell lines efficiently sequestered endogenous Id proteins as Id-bHLH heterodimers, as shown by coimmunoprecipitation and subcellular colocalization studies. This led to growth arrest of the cells. Enforced overexpression of a mutant E47 protein, deficient in transactivation and DNA binding function, also partially inhibited cell growth. Taken together, these data imply that deregulated expression of Id proteins in colorectal adenocarcinoma arises at least in part as a consequence of loss of p53 function and contributes to the uncontrolled proliferation of tumor cells in colorectal cancer.
