ARTICLE ABSTRACT

Estrogen-related receptor β (ESRRB) is a member of the orphan nuclear receptor family and mediates stem cell self-renewal and early embryonic development. Previous studies have also reported that ESRRB plays a role in the development and progression of breast cancer and prostate cancer. In this study, we observed that ESRRB was highly expressed in cervical cancer and was associated with disease progression. Knocking out ESRRB using CRISPR/Cas9 gene editing in cervical cancer cells induced cell-cycle arrest at the transition from the G0–G1 phase to the S phase, resulting in inhibition of cell proliferation in vitro and reduced tumor growth in vivo. Conversely, ectopic expression of ESRRB significantly promoted the proliferation of cervical cancer cells. ESRRB activated transcription of SMAD7, a TGFβ pathway inhibitor, which blocked phosphorylation and nuclear translocation of SMAD2/3 to the nucleus, thereby downregulating CDKN1A and upregulating CCNA2 and MYC. In turn, MYC transactivated ESRRB and upregulated SMAD7, thus forming a positive feedback loop with ESRRB. Together, these findings identify the tumor-promoting function of ESRRB in cervical cancer and reveal a mechanism by which ESRRB stimulates cell proliferation to promote cancer progression. The ESRRB/SMAD7/MYC-positive feedback loop inhibits TGFβ signaling to activate cell-cycle progression and promote proliferation in cervical cancer, thereby driving tumor growth.
