Overall list the over-expressed ARE-mRNAs in breast cancer.



Defects in AU-rich elements (ARE)-mediated posttranscriptional control can lead to several abnormal processes that underlie carcinogenesis. Here, we performed a systematic analysis of ARE-mRNA expression across multiple cancer types. First, the ARE database (ARED) was intersected with The Cancer Genome Atlas databases and others. A large set of ARE-mRNAs was over-represented in cancer and, unlike non-ARE-mRNAs, correlated with the reversed balance in the expression of the RNA-binding proteins tristetraprolin (TTP, ZFP36) and HuR (ELAVL1). Serial statistical and functional enrichment clustering identified a cluster of 11 overexpressed ARE-mRNAs (CDC6, KIF11, PRC1, NEK2, NCAPG, CENPA, NUF2, KIF18A, CENPE, PBK, TOP2A) that negatively correlated with TTP/HuR mRNA ratios and was involved in the mitotic cell cycle. This cluster was upregulated in a number of solid cancers. Experimentally, we demonstrated that the ARE-mRNA cluster is upregulated in a number of tumor breast cell lines when compared with noninvasive and normal-like breast cancer cells. RNA-IP demonstrated the association of the ARE-mRNAs with TTP and HuR. Experimental modulation of TTP or HuR expression led to changes in the mitosis ARE-mRNAs. Posttranscriptional reporter assays confirmed the functionality of AREs. Moreover, TTP augmented mitotic cell-cycle arrest as demonstrated by flow cytometry and histone H3 phosphorylation. We found that poor breast cancer patient survival was significantly associated with low TTP/HuR mRNA ratios and correlated with high levels of the mitotic ARE-mRNA signature. These results significantly broaden the role of AREs and their binding proteins in cancer, and demonstrate that TTP induces an antimitotic pathway that is diminished in cancer.
