BACKGROUND: Ubiquilin-4 (UBQLN4) is a component of the ubiquitin-proteasome system and regulates the degradation of many proteins implicated in pathological conditions. The aim of this study was to determine the role of UBQLN4 in regulating the proliferation and survival of the normal gastric epithelial cell line GES-1.
MATERIAL AND METHODS: We constructed GES-1 lines stably overexpressing UBQLN4 by lentiviral infection. Cell proliferation, apoptosis, and the cell cycle were analyzed using the MTT assay and flow cytometric assays. Phosphorylation of ERK, JNK, p38, and expression of cyclin D1 were detected by western blot analysis.
RESULTS: Overexpression of UBQLN4 significantly reduced proliferation and induced G2/M phase arrest and apoptosis in GES-1 cells. Moreover, upregulation of UBQLN4 increased the expression of cyclin D1 and phosphorylated ERK, but not JNK or p38.
CONCLUSIONS: These data suggest that UBQLN4 may induce cell cycle arrest and apoptosis via activation of the ERK pathway and upregulation of cyclin D1 in GES-1 cells.
