    Promega micrococcal nuclease treated rabbit reticulocyte lysate
    IRES-mediated translation and IRES inhibition in a cell-free system and in cells. (A) Diagrammatic comparison of general protein synthesis to IRES-mediated translation. General protein synthesis is mediated by cap-dependent ribosomal scanning from the 5′-end of the mRNA and may be modulated by mTOR inhibitors. Internal ribosome entry sites (IRESs) allow the 40S ribosome to engage the mRNA at a position much closer (in many cases immediately adjacent to) the AUG initiation codon. IRES-mediated translation is independently regulated and serves as a fail-safe mechanism ensuring the synthesis of proteins most critical for cell survival. (B) Structure of IRES inhibitor lead compound W (cpd_W): Ethyl 2-{[2-(1,3-benzoxazol-2-ylthio)butanoyl]amino}-4-methyl-1,3-thiazole-5-carboxylate, MW 405. (C) In vitro translation assays: <t>Rabbit</t> <t>reticulocyte</t> <t>lysate</t> was programmed with a bicistronic reporter RNA in which translation of the second cistron (firefly luciferase coding sequence) is mediated by the IGF1R IRES, while translation of the first cistron ( Renilla luciferase coding sequence) is mediated by ribosomal scanning. IRES inhibitor cpd_W (or vehicle control) was included in the reaction in increasing concentrations as indicated. The result is indicative of selective inhibition of IRES-mediated translation. A structural analog of cpd_W (W-7) in which a single atom has been modified (converting the benzoxazole to a benzimidazole) was completely inactive in this assay, indicative of the chemical specificity of IRES inhibition. Cycloheximide (5 µg/ml, chx) and puromycin (250 µg/ml, puro) were included as reference standards for non-specific translational inhibition (far right). (D) IRES inhibitor cpd_W completely blocked de novo synthesis of IGF1R in breast tumor cells under adverse conditions (serum-deprivation, loss of adhesion) relevant to the microenvironment of the tumor. T47D breast tumor cells were seeded in 6-well plates and allowed 48 h to recover and resume proliferation, then incubated in the presence of IRES inhibitor cpd_W (10 µg/ml) or vehicle control (0.1% DMSO) as indicated. The cells were simultaneously subjected to acute serum deprivation (0.5% fetal calf serum, no added insulin) to increase dependence on IRES-mediated translation. After 24 h, the cells were harvested and whole cell lysates prepared, equivalent aliquots separated by SDS-PAGE and immunoblotted for IGF1R-β and α-tubulin. In lanes 7–12, the cells were trypsinized and seeded into 6-well plates and immediately incubated in the presence of IRES-inhibitor cpd_W or vehicle control as indicated. Robust regeneration of trypsin-catabolized IGF1R was observed within 24 h in <t>vehicle-treated</t> cells, however, this was completely blocked in the presence of cpd_W (10 µg/ml as shown; IC 50 , 2 µg/ml). The asterisk (*) marks the position of trypsin-catabolized IGF1R. In lanes 13–17, the cells were treated as described for lanes 7–12, except that following trypsinization, cells were transferred to low-adherence plates, forcing cells to adapt to a state of anchorage-independence. The results confirmed the activity of cpd_W against the endogenous IRES in genetically-unmodified tumor cells. Similar results were obtained with IRES inhibitor lead cpd_P ( 11 ).

( B ) At 48 h post-transfection, the GFP (as Control) and Flag-VP2-GFP (as wild-type; WT) were found in the CHO cells. Next the lysates were immunoprecipitated using Flag M2 beads and immunoblotted against VP2 and MCM3 antibodies.

A structural analog of cpd_W (W-7) in which a single atom has been modified (converting the benzoxazole to a benzimidazole) was completely inactive in this assay, indicative of the chemical specificity of IRES inhibition. Cycloheximide (5 µg/ml, chx) and puromycin (250 µg/ml, puro) were included as reference standards for non-specific translational inhibition (far right). (D) IRES inhibitor cpd_W completely blocked de novo synthesis of IGF1R in breast tumor cells under adverse conditions (serum-deprivation, loss of adhesion) relevant to the microenvironment of the tumor. T47D breast tumor cells were seeded in 6-well plates and allowed 48 h to recover and resume proliferation, then incubated in the presence of IRES inhibitor cpd_W (10 µg/ml) or vehicle control (0.1% DMSO) as indicated. The cells were simultaneously subjected to acute serum deprivation (0.5% fetal calf serum, no added insulin) to increase dependence on IRES-mediated translation. After 24 h, the cells were harvested and whole cell lysates prepared, equivalent aliquots separated by SDS-PAGE and immunoblotted for IGF1R-β and α-tubulin. In lanes 7–12, the cells were trypsinized and seeded into 6-well plates and immediately incubated in the presence of IRES-inhibitor cpd_W or vehicle control as indicated. Robust regeneration of trypsin-catabolized IGF1R was observed within 24 h in vehicle-treated cells, however, this was completely blocked in the presence of cpd_W (10 µg/ml as shown; IC 50 , 2 µg/ml). The asterisk (*) marks the position of trypsin-catabolized IGF1R. In lanes 13–17, the cells were treated as described for lanes 7–12, except that following trypsinization, cells were transferred to low-adherence plates, forcing cells to adapt to a state of anchorage-independence. The results confirmed the activity of cpd_W against the endogenous IRES in genetically-unmodified tumor cells. Similar results were obtained with IRES inhibitor lead cpd_P ( 11 ).

    VP2 binds to chromatin and interacts with MCM3 but this does not require dual phosphatase activity . ( A ) The soluble (S) and chromatin (C) fractions were prepared by using CSK buffer containing 0.5% Triton X-100 in CHO cells of transfected with VP2-GFP plasmid. The fractions were treated with 0 U (-) and 150 U (+) of MNase or the indicated concentrations of NaCl. Nuclear extracts (N) containing VP2-GFP were as positive control and all fractions were subjected to immunoblotting against with lamin B receptor, MCM3, and VP2 antibodies. ( B ) At 48 h post-transfection, the GFP (as Control) and Flag-VP2-GFP (as wild-type; WT) were found in the CHO cells. Next the lysates were immunoprecipitated using Flag M2 beads and immunoblotted against VP2 and MCM3 antibodies. ( C ) The WT and mutants (C95S, C97S, and C95S/C97S) of the Flag-VP2-GFP in CHO cells were also examined at 48 h post-transfection. The cell lysates were immunoprecipitated using Flag M2 beads and immunoblotted against with VP2 and MCM3 antibodies. The arrow head was indicated a none-specific band. The nuclear extracts containing VP2-GFP were designated as N

    Genome-wide nucleosome positioning in Dictyostelium . ( A ) Normalized read midpoint frequency distributions of MNase-protected fragments (nucleosome dyads) of all 12,750 genes in growth-stage WT cells were aligned relative to their ATG codons. Peaks (arrows) correspond to dyad midpoints for globally phased nucleosomes in the 5′ region of intragenic DNA, and distances between mapped read peaks correspond to ∼170 bp NRL. The protein coding DNA sequence (cds) region is shaded. ( B ) Normalized read midpoint frequency distributions of all genes in growth-stage WT cells were aligned relative to their translational termination sites (stop codons). Peaks (arrows) in the mean normalized frequency distribution correspond to globally phased nucleosomes in the 3′ region of intragenic DNA. The protein cds region is shaded. ( C ) Normalized dyad read midpoint frequency distributions for WT chromatin (CHR; dotted line) (see A ) were adjusted for sequence mappability by dividing with equivalent control data from MNase-digested naked (protein free) WT DNA (DNA; red line) and replotted as the ratio (CHR/DNA; thick black line) within 1.2 kb of flanking chromatin relative to ATG sites of all 12,750 genes. An ∼170-bp nucleosome-depleted (“free”) region (NDR) is centered near the AT-rich regions of Dictyostelium TSS. Positioned nucleosomes upstream (+) and downstream (−) to the NDR are indicated by arrows. The protein cds region is shaded.
