Abstract Calbindin-D, a vitamin D-dependent calcium-binding protein of 28 kD, is found predominantly in the distal tubules of the kidney and central nervous system tissues in humans. To evaluate damage to the renal tubules caused by cisplatin-based chemotherapy, levels of urinary and serum calbindin-D were determined in patients treated with cisplatin- or carboplatin-based chemotherapies using a highly sensitive enzyme immunoassay system developed in our laboratory. Levels of urinary 28-kD calbindin-D were also determined in patients with benign and malignant urological diseases. The mean urinary calbindin-D level was 2.44 + or - 0.31 (mean + or - SE) ng/mg creatinine in 40 healthy subjects. Urinary calbindin-D levels were elevated (>10 ng/mg creatinine) in 2 of 33 patients (6\%) with benign and 1 of 50 (2\%) with malignant urological diseases. Urinary calbindin-D levels were significantly increased after cisplatin-based chemotherapy in 14 patients, with peaks (71.8 + or - 13.5 ng/mg creatinine) being found 8 days after administration of cisplatin, and then a gradual return to the baseline. On the other hand, 7 patients receiving carboplatin-based chemotherapy demonstrated no significant elevation (highest level 7.7 + or - 2.5 ng/mg creatinine). In 7 patients treated with cisplatin-based chemotherapy the serum calbindin-D level was also raised after treatment, with a good correlation to urinary values. These findings suggest that urinary and serum calbindin-D may be kidney-derived and that 28-kDa calbindin-D is a useful marker for damage to the distal renal tubules associated with cisplatin-based chemotherapy.

    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.
