Surface ?-enolase promotes extracellular matrix degradation and tumor metastasis and represents a new therapeutic target.

Hide Abstract
In previous research, we found ?-enolase to be inversely correlated with progression-free and overall survival in lung cancer patients and detected ?-enolase on the surface of lung cancer cells. Based on these findings, we hypothesized that surface ?-enolase has a significant role in cancer metastasis and tested this hypothesis in the current study. We found that ?-enolase was co-immunoprecipitated with urokinase-type plasminogen activator, urokinase-type plasminogen activator receptor, and plasminogen in lung cancer cells and interacted with these proteins in a cell-free dot blotting assay, which can be interrupted by ?-enolase-specific antibody. ?-Enolase in lung cancer cells co-localized with these proteins and was present at the site of pericellular degradation of extracellular matrix components. Treatment with antibody against ?-enolase in vitro suppressed cell-associated plasminogen and matrix metalloproteinase activation, collagen and gelatin degradation, and cell invasion. Examination of the effect of treatment with shRNA plasmids revealed that down regulation of ?-enolase decreases extracellular matrix degradation by and the invasion capacity of lung cancer cells. Adoptive transfer of ?-enolase-specific antibody to mice resulted in accumulation of antibody in subcutaneous tumor and inhibited the formation of tumor metastasis in lung and bone. This study demonstrated that surface ?-enolase promotes extracellular matrix degradation and invasion of cancer cells and that targeting surface ?-enolase is a promising approach to suppress tumor metastasis.

What is Visualize?

JoVE Visualize is a tool created to match the last 5 years of PubMed publications to methods in JoVE's video library.

How does it work?

We use abstracts found on PubMed and match them to JoVE videos to create a list of 10 to 30 related methods videos.

Video X seems to be unrelated to Abstract Y...

In developing our video relationships, we compare around 5 million PubMed articles to our library of over 4,500 methods videos. In some cases the language used in the PubMed abstracts makes matching that content to a JoVE video difficult. In other cases, there happens not to be any content in our video library that is relevant to the topic of a given abstract. In these cases, our algorithms are trying their best to display videos with relevant content, which can sometimes result in matched videos with only a slight relation.
