Summary of "Amplification of USP13 drives non-small cell lung cancer progression mediated by AKT/MAPK signaling."

USP13 is emerging as a potential target in cancer therapy. However, the effect of USP13 on tumor progression is controversial. Here we focused on non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC), a common cancer with high mortality, and studied the role of USP13 in tumor growth. By analysis of multi-level genetic database, we found USP13 is high expressed in heart among healthy primary tissues and is most amplified in lung cancer. Clinical samples of NSCLC showed tumor exhibited high USP13 level compared with adjacent normal tissues. We further utilized lung adenocarcinoma A549 and squamous carcinoma H226 cells as cell model and investigated USP13 effect by USP13 knockdown. As a results, downregulation of USP13 dramatically inhibited A549 and H226 cell proliferation by AKT/MAPK signaling and suppressed tumor growth in nude mice. Collectively, we identified USP13 as a tumor promoter in NSCLC and provide a promising target in cancer therapy.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

Malignant neoplasm arising from the epithelium of the BRONCHI. It represents a large group of epithelial lung malignancies which can be divided into two clinical groups: SMALL CELL LUNG CANCER and NON-SMALL-CELL LUNG CARCINOMA.

A form of highly malignant lung cancer that is composed of small ovoid cells (SMALL CELL CARCINOMA).

A heterogeneous aggregate of at least three distinct histological types of lung cancer, including SQUAMOUS CELL CARCINOMA; ADENOCARCINOMA; and LARGE CELL CARCINOMA. They are dealt with collectively because of their shared treatment strategy.

A basic helix-loop-helix leucine zipper (bHLHZ) transcription factor and proto-oncogene protein that functions in cell growth and proliferation. In mammals, it is highly expressed in the brain during embryogenesis and is essential for brain development; it is not expressed in adult tissues. Amplification or overexpression of N-Myc occurs in at least 20% of tumors and is associated with a poor prognosis in cases of NEUROBLASTOMA; ALVEOLAR RHABDOMYOSARCOMA; SMALL CELL LUNG CARCINOMA; and neuroendocrine prostate cancer.

A quinazoline derivative and ANTINEOPLASTIC AGENT that functions as a PROTEIN KINASE INHIBITOR for EGFR associated tyrosine kinase. It is used in the treatment of NON-SMALL CELL LUNG CANCER.
