Abstract [en]

The cell surface proteins CD133, CD24 and CD44 are putative markers for cancer stem cell populations in colon cancer, associated with aggressive cancer types and poor prognosis. It is important to understand how these markers may predict treatment outcomes, determined by factors such as radioresistance. The scope of this study was to assess the connection between EGFR, CD133, CD24, and CD44 (including isoforms) expression levels and radiation sensitivity, and furthermore analyze the influence of AKT isoforms on the expression patterns of these markers, to better understand the underlying molecular mechanisms in the cell. Three colon cancer cell-lines were used, HT-29, DLD-1, and HCT116, together with DLD-1 isogenic AKT knock-out cell-lines. All three cell-lines (HT-29, HCT116 and DLD-1) expressed varying amounts of CD133, CD24 and CD44 and the top ten percent of CD133 and CD44 expressing cells (CD133(high)/CD44(high)) were more resistant to gamma radiation than the ten percent with lowest expression (CD133(low)/CD44(low)). The AKT expression was lower in the fraction of cells with low CD133/CD44. Depletion of AKT1 or AKT2 using knock out cells showed for the first time that CD133 expression was associated with AKT1 but not AKT2, whereas the CD44 expression was influenced by the presence of either AKT1 or AKT2. There were several genes in the cell adhesion pathway which had significantly higher expression in the AKT2 KO cell-line compared to the AKT1 KO cell-line; however important genes in the epithelial to mesenchymal transition pathway (CDH1, VIM, TWIST1, SNAI1, SNAI2, ZEB1, ZEB2, FN1, FOXC2 and CDH2) did not differ. Our results demonstrate that CD133(high)/CD44(high) expressing colon cancer cells are associated with AKT and increased radiation resistance, and that different AKT isoforms have varying effects on the expression of cancer stem cell markers, which is an important consideration when targeting AKT in a clinical setting.

Abstract [en]

The primary treatment for colorectal cancer is surgery. Radiotherapy and chemotherapy, sometimes combined, are also frequently used to diminish recurrence risk. In response to radiation exposure, several cellular signaling cascades are activated to repair DNA breaks, prevent apoptosis and to keep the cells proliferating. Several proteins in the radiation response and cell survival pathways are potential targets to enhance the effects of radiation. The epidermal growth factor receptor (EGFR), which is frequently upregulated in colorectal cancer and exhibits a radiation protective function, is an attractive target for treatment. EGFR is activated by radiation which in turn activates numerous signaling pathways such as the PI3 kinase/AKT cascade, the RAS/RAF/ERK pathway and STAT leading to tumor cell proliferation. EGFR is also believed to interact with proteins in the DNA repair process, such as DNA-PKcs and MRE11. The cytotoxic effect of an affibody molecule (ZEGFR:1907)2, with high affinity to EGFR,  in combination with radiation produced a small, but significant, reduction in survival in a KRAS mutated cell line. However, not in the BRAF mutated cell line. The next step was therefore to target proteins downstream of EGFR such as AKT. There was an interaction between AKT and the DNA repair proteins DNA-PKcs and MRE11 and both AKT1 and AKT2 were involved in the radiation response. The knockout of both AKT isoforms impaired the DNA double strand break rejoining after radiation and suppression of DNA-PKcs increased the radiations sensitivity and decreased the DNA repair further. The AKT isoforms also affected the expression of cancer stem cell markers CD133 and CD44 which are associated with the formation of metastasis as well as radiation and drug resistance. The CD133 expression was associated with AKT1 but not AKT2, whereas the CD44 expression was influenced by the presence of either AKT1 or AKT2. AKT was also involved in cell migration, cell-adhesion and metabolism. Overall, these results illustrate the complexity in response to radiation and drugs in cells with different mutations and the need for combining inhibitors against several targets such as EGFR, AKT, DNA-PKcs, CD133 or CD44.
