BAP1 regulates different mechanisms of cell death

BAP1 regulates different mechanisms of cell death

Cell Death & Disease, volume 9, Article number: 1151 (2018)

The ubiquitin carboxyl terminal BAP1 is a member of deubiquitinating enzymes superfamily, which are responsible for coordinating ubiquitin-signaling processes through the removal of ubiquitin from protein substrates. Studies of families with high incidence of mesothelioma led to the discovery that all affected family members carried heterozygous BAP1 mutations (BAP1+/−), a condition that was named “the BAP1 cancer syndrome”.

 

Since the initial discovery in 2011, over 100 families have been identified worldwide affected by the BAP1 cancer syndrome.

Germline BAP1 mutations induce a Warburg effect

Germline BAP1 mutations induce a Warburg effect

Cell Death and Differentiation, June 30, 2017 (doi: 10.1038/cdd.2017.95)

Aerobic glycolysis, also known as the ‘Warburg effect’, does not necessarily occur as an adaptive process that is consequence of carcinogenesis, but rather that it may also predate malignancy by many years and facilitate carcinogenesis.

Oncotarget Advance Publication: HMGB1 targeting by ethyl pyruvate suppresses malignant phenotype of human mesothelioma

Oncotarget Advance Publication: HMGB1 targeting by ethyl pyruvate suppresses malignant phenotype of human mesothelioma

We studied the effect of ethyl pyruvate (EP), the ethyl ester of pyruvic acid, on the malignant phenotype of MM cells in tissue culture and on tumor growth in vivo using an orthotopic MM xenograft model.
