Abstract BACKGROUND AND AIM: Molecular diagnostics and therapeutics of human mesothelioma using disease-related markers present major challenges in clinical practice. To identify biochemical alternations that would be markers of human mesothelioma, we measured the intracellular steady-state levels of biologically important trace metals such as manganese (Mn), copper (Cu), and zinc (Zn) in a human mesothelial cell line, MeT-5A, and in five human mesothelioma cell lines (MSTO-211H, NCI-H226, NCI-H2052, NCI-H2452, ACC-MESO-1) by inductively coupled plasma-mass spectrometry (ICP-MS). We also aimed to investigate whether the alterations were related to the intracellular status of metal-containing superoxide dismutase (SOD). RESULTS: There were no significant differences in the contents of the trace metals among MeT-5A, MSTO-211H, and ACC-MESO-1 cells. However, each of the other three mesothelioma cell lines had a unique characteristic in terms of the intracellular amounts of the metals; NCI-H226 contained an extremely high level of Mn, an amount 7.3-fold higher than that in MeT-5A. NCI-H2052 had significantly higher amounts of Cu (3.4-fold) and Zn (1.3-fold) compared with MeT-5A. NCI-H2452 contained about 5.8-fold the amount of Cu and 2.5-fold that of Mn compared with MeT-5A. As for the intracellular levels of copper/zinc-SOD (Cu/Zn-SOD) and manganese-SOD (Mn-SOD), those of Cu/Zn-SOD were relatively unchanged among the cells tested, and no notable correlation with Cu or Zn contents was observed. On the other hand, all mesothelioma cells highly expressed Mn-SOD compared with MeT-5A, and a very high expression of the enzyme with a robust activity was observed in the two mesothelioma cells (NCI-H226, NCI-H2452) containing a large amount of Mn. CONCLUSIONS: In comparison with MeT-5A human mesothelial cells, some human mesothelioma cells had significantly higher amounts of Mn or Cu and one mesothelioma cell had a significantly higher amount of Zn. Interestingly, all mesothelioma cells overexpressed Mn-SOD compared with MeT-5A, and the cells whose Mn-SOD activity was increased contained higher amounts of Mn. It seemed that intracellular Mn content was positively correlated with Mn-SOD, suggesting that the intracellular Mn level is associated with Mn-SOD activity. These biochemical signatures could be potential disease-related markers of mesothelioma. This article was published in J Trace Elem Med Biol and referenced in Journal of Prostate Cancer

    Classically, the 3’untranslated region (3’UTR) is that region in eukaryotic protein-coding genes from the translation termination codon to the polyA signal. It is transcribed as an integral part of the mRNA encoded by the gene. However, there exists another kind of RNA, which consists of the 3’UTR alone, without all other elements in mRNA such as 5’UTR and coding region. The importance of independent 3’UTR RNA (referred as I3’UTR) was prompted by results of artificially introducing such RNA species into malignant mammalian cells. Since 1991, we found that the middle part of the 3’UTR of the human nuclear factor for interleukin-6 (NF-IL6) or C/EBP gene exerted tumor suppression effect in vivo. Our subsequent studies showed that transfection of C/EBP 3’UTR led to down-regulation of several genes favorable for malignancy and to up-regulation of some genes favorable for phenotypic reversion. Also, it was shown that the sequences near the termini of the C/EBP 3’UTR were important for its tumor suppression activity. Then, the C/EBP 3’UTR was found to directly inhibit the phosphorylation activity of protein kinase CPKC in SMMC-7721, a hepatocarcinoma cell line. Recently, an AU-rich region in the C/EBP 3’UTR was found also to be responsible for its tumor suppression. Recently we have also found evidence that the independent C/EBP 3’UTR RNA is actually exists in human tissues, such as fetal liver and heart, pregnant uterus, senescent fibroblasts etc. Through 1990’s to 2000’s, world scientists found several 3’UTR RNAs that functioned as artificial independent RNAs in cancer cells and resulted in tumor suppression. Interestingly, majority of genes for these RNAs have promoter-like structures in their 3’UTR regions, although the existence of their transcribed products as independent 3’UTR RNAs is still to be confirmed. Our studies indicate that the independent 3’UTR RNA is a novel non-coding RNA species whose function should be the regulation not of the expression of their original mRNA, but of some essential life activities of the cell as a whole.
