Abstract

Abrogation of negative feedback control represents a fundamental requirement for aberrantly activated signaling pathways to promote malignant transformation and resistance to therapy. Here we identify URI, which encodes a mitochondrial inhibitor of PP1γ and PP1γ-mediated feedback inhibition of S6K1-BAD survival signaling, as an oncogene amplified and overexpressed in ovarian cancer cell lines and human ovarian carcinomas. URI is an "addicting" oncogene selectively required for the survival of ovarian cancer cells with increased URI copy number. By constitutively detaining PP1γ in inactive complexes, URI sustains S6K1 survival signaling under growth factor-limiting conditions and mediates resistance of cells to cisplatin. Thus, oncogenic activation of URI defines an important mechanism for activating mitochondrial S6K1-BAD signaling and promoting cell survival through disabling PP1γ-dependent negative feedback inhibition.

TrendTerms

TrendTerms displays relevant terms of the abstract of this publication and related documents on a map. The terms and their relations were extracted from ZORA using word statistics. Their timelines are taken from ZORA as well. The bubble size of a term is proportional to the number of documents where the term occurs. Red, orange, yellow and green colors are used for terms that occur in the current document; red indicates high interlinkedness of a term with other terms, orange, yellow and green decreasing interlinkedness. Blue is used for terms that have a relation with the terms in this document, but occur in other documents.
You can navigate and zoom the map. Mouse-hovering a term displays its timeline, clicking it yields the associated documents.
