    Hepatocyte growth factor (HGF) activator inhibitor type-1 (HAI-1), encoded by the SPINT1 gene, is a transmembrane protease inhibitor that regulates membrane-anchored serine proteases, particularly matriptase. Here, we explored the role of HAI-1 in tongue squamous cell carcinoma (TSCC) cells. An immunohistochemical study of HAI-1 in surgically resected TSCC revealed the cell surface immunoreactivity of HAI-1 in the main portion of the tumor. The immunoreactivity decreased in the infiltrative front, and this decrease correlated with enhanced lymphatic invasion as judged by podoplanin immunostaining. In vitro homozygous deletion of SPINT1 (HAI-1KO) in TSCC cell lines (HSC3 and SAS) suppressed the cell growth rate but significantly enhanced invasion in vitro. The loss of HAI-1 resulted in enhanced pericellular activities of proteases, such as matriptase and urokinase-type plasminogen activator, which induced activation of HGF/MET signaling in the co-culture with pro-HGF-expressing fibroblasts and plasminogen-dependent plasmin generation, respectively. The enhanced plasminogen-dependent plasmin generation was abrogated partly by matriptase silencing. Culture supernatants of HAI-1KO cells had enhanced potency for converting the proform of vascular endothelial growth factor-C (VEGF-C), a lymphangiogenesis factor, into the mature form in a plasminogen-dependent manner. Furthermore, HGF significantly stimulated VEGF-C expression in TSCC cells. Orthotopic xenotransplantation into nude mouse tongue revealed enhanced lymphatic invasion of HAI-1KO TSCC cells compared to control cells. Our results suggest that HAI-1 insufficiency leads to dysregulated pericellular protease activity, which eventually orchestrates robust activation of protease-dependent growth factors, such as HGF and VEGF-C, in a tumor microenvironment to contribute to TSCC progression.

    High-mobility group box 2 (HMGB2) is a chromatin-associated protein that is an important regulator of gene transcription, recombination, and repair processes. The functional importance of HMGB2 has been reported in various organs, including the testis, heart, and cartilage. However, its role in the ovary is largely unknown. In this study, ovary tissues from wild-type (WT) and HMGB2-knock-out (KO) mice were examined by histopathological staining and immunohistochemistry. The ovary size and weight were significantly lower in HMGB2-KO mice than in age-matched WT littermates. Histopathological analysis revealed ovarian atrophy and progressive fibrosis in 10-month-old HMGB2-KO mouse ovaries. Compared to age-matched WT mice, the numbers of oocytes and developing follicles were significantly decreased at 2 months of age and were completely depleted at 10 months of age in HMGB2-KO mice. Immunohistochemistry revealed the expression of HMGB2 in the granulosa cells of developing follicles, oocytes, some corpora lutea, and stromal cells. Importantly, HMGB2-positive cells were co-localized with estrogen receptor beta (ERβ), but not ERα. Estrogen response element-binding activity was demonstrated by southwestern histochemistry, and it was decreased in HMGB2-KO mouse ovaries. Cell proliferation activity was also decreased in HMGB2-KO mouse ovaries in parallel with the decreased folliculogenesis. These results indicated that the depletion of HMGB2 induced ovarian atrophy that was characterized by a decreased ovarian size and weight, progressive fibrosis, as well as decreased oocytes and folliculogenesis. In conclusion, we demonstrated the crucial role of HMGB2 in mouse ovarian folliculogenesis through ERβ expression.

    MEL1 (MDS1/EVI1-like gene 1/PRDM16), a zinc finger protein, is located near the chromosomal breakpoint at 1p36 in human acute myeloid leukemia (AML) cells with the t (1; 3) (p36; q21) translocation. Mel1/Prdm16 is not only a causative gene of leukemia, but also has multiple regulatory functions, such as the regulation of fat metabolism. To investigate the function of Mel1/Prdm16, we generated Mel1/Prdm16-deficient mice, but homozygous deficiency (Mel1/Prdm16−/−) was embryonic lethal at E 11.5. Heterozygous mice showed abnormal cartilage and bone formation in the postnatal skull and long bones, suggesting that Mel1/Prdm16 expression plays an important role in bone development. In osteoblast and chondrocyte cell lines, Mel1/Prdm16 promotes the differentiation of chondrocytes and regulates the differentiation of osteoblasts. Transient repression of the master regulator Runx2 is required for chondrocyte differentiation at an early stage of differentiation. However, in Mel1/Prdm16-suppressed ATDC5 cells, the initial suppression of Runx2 was lacking and its expression was upregulated at the beginning of differentiation, suggesting that chondrogenic differentiation is suppressed in Mel1/Prdm16+/− mesenchymal progenitor cells because Runx2 expression is upregulated during the early stage of differentiation. Thus, the Mel1/Prdm16 gene may be involved in the early repression of Runx2 expression during osteochondral differentiation and promote chondrogenic differentiation.

    Prostasin is a glycosylphosphatidylinositol-anchored serine protease widely expressed in epithelial cells, with crucial epidermal barrier functions. Evidence has suggested prostasin may have served as a tumor suppressor in various cancers, but its role in oral squamous cell carcinoma (OSCC) remains unclear. Thus, herein, we conducted an immunohistochemical prostasin study in 119 resected OSCC cases. Prostasin expression was decreased in 63% (75/119) of cases. OSCC with decreased prostasin immunoreactivity (low prostasin cases) tended to show a higher histological grade (p = 0.0088) and a more infiltrative cancer cell morphology (p = 0.0024). We then explored the role of prostasin in the OSCC cell lines: SAS and HSC-4. SAS did not express detectable prostasin levels, whereas HSC-4 expressed low but distinct levels. Prostasin overexpression suppressed the proliferation and migration of both OSCC lines in vitro. Conversely, prostasin silencing significantly enhanced growth rates of HSC-4. Finally, we analyzed the impact of prostasin expression on the prognosis of patients with OSCC; decreased expression tended to correlate with shorter overall survival (p = 0.0291) after resection. This trend was supported by our analyses using a public database (Kaplan–Meier plotter) of head and neck squamous cell carcinomas. In conclusion, we showed decreased prostasin expression was associated with aggressive features and a poorer prognosis of OSCC.

  • Pivotal role of the carbohydrate recognition domain in self-interaction of CLEC4A to elicit the ITIM-mediated inhibitory function in murine conventional dendritic cells in vitro

    C-type lectin receptors (CLRs), pattern recognition receptors (PRRs) with a characteristic carbohydrate recognition domain (CRD) in the extracellular portion, mediate crucial cellular functions upon recognition of glycosylated pathogens and self-glycoproteins. CLEC4A is the only classical CLR that possesses an intracellular immunoreceptor tyrosine-based inhibitory motif (ITIM), which possibly transduces negative signals. However, how CLEC4A exerts cellular inhibition remains unclear. Here, we report that the self-interaction of CLEC4A through the CRD is required for the ITIM-mediated suppressive function in conventional dendritic cells (cDCs). Human type 2 cDCs (cDC2) and monocytes display a higher expression of CLEC4A than cDC1 and plasmacytoid DCs (pDCs) as well as B cells. The extracellular portion of CLEC4A specifically binds to a murine cDC cell line expressing CLEC4A, while its extracellular portion lacking the N-glycosylation site or the EPS motif within the CRD reduces their association. Furthermore, the deletion of the EPS motif within the CRD or ITIM in CLEC4A almost completely impairs its suppressive effect on the activation of the murine cDC cell line, whereas the absence of the N-glycosylation site within the CRD exhibits partial inhibition on their activation. On the other hand, antagonistic monoclonal antibody (mAb) to CLEC4A, which inhibits the self-interaction of CLEC4A and its downstream signaling in murine transfectants, enhances the activation of monocytes and monocyte-derived immature DCs upon stimulation with a Toll-like receptor (TLR) ligand. Thus, our findings suggest a pivotal role of the CRD in self-interaction of CLEC4A to elicit the ITIM-mediated inhibitory signal for the control of the function of cDCs.

    Although Mohs paste can control bleeding, exudates, and odors from tumors, there have been no reports of the combination of Mohs paste with other treatments, such as chemotherapy, in oral cancer. Here, we report the combination of Mohs paste and chemotherapy for a case of metastatic oral cancer to the precordium skin and bilateral axillary lymph nodes. The tumors almost completely disappeared after the treatment. Combination therapy of Mohs paste and chemotherapy appears to have a better antitumor effect than Mohs paste alone.
