Abstract :
ECRG2 is a novel tumor suppressor gene that shows sequence similarity to KAZAL-type serine protease inhibitor. We have previously demonstrated ECRG2 inhibits migration/invasion of lung cancer PG cells. However, the mechanism by which ECRG2 performs these activities remains unknown. In this study, we found that ECRG2 inhibits proteolysis activity of uPA/plasmin and MMP2, and substantially reduces the ability of HT1080 and HCT-116 cells to invade ECM. Moreover, we demonstrated ECRG2 prevents the cleavage of uPAR, disrupts the association of sD2D3 with FPRL1, and that disruption impairs FPRL1 function. Conversely, depletion of ECRG2 not only markedly increased proteolysis activity of uPA/plasmin and MMP2 but also enhanced the association of uPAR with FPRL1, stimulated cell migration/invasion. Together, our results provide evidence that ECRG2 regulates invasion/migration partly through ECM degradation and uPA/uPAR/FPRL1 pathway, and may represent a novel therapeutic target for cancer.
