GSE128515: Therapeutic targeting of splicing in aggressive prostate cancer

Bulk RNA sequencing

Androgen deprivation therapy (ADT) is the main therapeutic regimen for patients with advanced prostate cancer (PCa). However, most treated patients invariably develop the castration-resistant disease (i.e., CRPC). Mechanisms underlying CRPC development and maintenance remain poorly understood. Recent studies have established splicing dysregulation as a new molecular hallmark of cancer. However, the functional and clinical relevance of such misregulation have not been systematically explored in PCa. Experimentally, we show that splicing modulator, E7107, can significantly inhibits CRPC cell growth both in vitro and in vivo. To determine the mechanistic origins of therapeutic effect of E7107 in vitro, we treated AR+ LNCaP and AR- PC3 cells with DMSO or E7107 at 10nM for 6 h, followed by deep RNA-seq analysis of rRNA-depleted total RNAs isolated from biological triplicates. Furthermore, to evaluate the activity of E7107 against CRPC in vivo, we utilized Enzalutamide-resistant LAPC9-AI (androgen-independent) and PC3 models. RNA-seq experiments we performed on tumors exactly 4 h after the fifth injection of E7107 (5mg/kg/day, 5-days injection considered as 1-dose treatment). Five tumors were included for each group (vehicle or E7107) for deep RNA-seq. SOURCE: Dingxiao Zhang ( - Tang lab Roswell Park Cancer Institute
