Brief description Genes down-regulated upon overexpression of PARVB [GeneID=29780] in MDA-MB-231 cells (breast cancer) cultured in 3D collagen I and 3D Matrigel only.
Full description or abstract Parvin-beta is a focal adhesion protein downregulated in human breast cancer cells. Loss of Parvin-beta contributes to increased integrin-linked kinase activity, cell-matrix adhesion, and invasion through the extracellular matrix in vitro. The effect of ectopic Parvin-beta expression on the transcriptional profile of MDA-MB-231 breast cancer cells, which normally do not express Parvin-beta, was evaluated. Particular emphasis was placed upon propagating MDA-MB-231 breast cancer cells in three-dimensional culture matrices. Interestingly, Parvin-beta reexpression in MDA-MB-231 cells increased the mRNA expression, serine 82 phosphorylation (mediated by CDK9), and activity of the nuclear hormone receptor peroxisome proliferator-activated receptor gamma (PPARgamma), and there was a concomitant increase in lipogenic gene expression as a downstream effector of PPARgamma. Importantly, Parvin-beta suppressed breast cancer growth in vivo, with associated decreased proliferation. These data suggest that Parvin-beta might influence breast cancer progression.
