Resumo

Molecular alterations in cell death pathways and imbalances in regulators of up- or downstream signaling pathways can lead to resistance to cell death, which is one of the hallmarks of cancer. These signaling modifications are strategies that tumor cells use to resist chemotherapy and that contribute to the high recurrence rate of head and neck squamous cell carcinoma (HNSCC). The SET oncoprotein is a PP2A inhibitor that accumulates in HNSCC and represents a promising therapeutic target. Here we report the role that SET protein plays in resistance to death of two HNSCC cell lines: Cal 27 and HN13. SET protein regulated intracellular redox balance by controlling cellular localization of APE 1 an endonuclease that is part of the SET complex and regulates antioxidant gene transcription. SET protein knockdown (siSET) associated with tert-butyl hydroperoxide-induced oxidative stress sensitized Cal 27 and HN13 cells to apoptosis via the extrinsic and intrinsic pathways, respectively. SET protein upregulated autophagy in HNSCC cells in a PP2A-dependent manner and apparently regulated ULK1 expression. The fact that siSET lowered Bcl-2 phosphorylation levels indicated that SET protein interfered with an alternative pathway that modulated autophagy in HNSCC cells. Overall, SET protein regulated intracellular redox state and sustained autophagy in HNSCC cells, which may explain resistance to death of HNSCC cells. Altogether, the findings reported herein support SET protein as therapeutic target for HNSCC. (AU)
