Delta-lactoferrin induces cell death via the mitochondrial death signaling pathway by upregulating bax expression

Résumé

Delta-lactoferrin (∆Lf) is a transcription factor belonging to the lactoferrin family, the expression of which inhibits cell proliferation and leads to Skp1 and DcpS gene transactivation. In this study, we showed that ∆Lf expression also induces cell death via apoptosis in HEK 293 and MCF7 cells using a cell viability assay and DNA fragmentation. Western blot analyses showed that apoptosis was caspase-9, 7 and 8 dependent. Proteolytic cleavage of the endonuclease PARP was significantly increased. The levels of expression of Bcl family members were detected by immunochemistry and showed that the Bcl-xl/Bax and Bcl-2/Bax protein ratios were decreased. We determined that the pro-apoptotic effects of ∆Lf are mainly mediated by the activation of the mitochondria-dependent death-signaling pathway. Apoptosis induction by ∆Lf is concomitant with increased cellular levels of Bax protein. Analysis of the Bax promoter region detected a ∆Lf response element located at -155 bp from the transcription start site. Both luciferase reporter gene and chromatin immunoprecipitation assays confirmed that ∆Lf interacts in vitro and in vivo specifically with this sequence. Its deletion, realized using directed mutagenesis, totally abolished ∆Lf transcriptional activity, identifying it as a ∆Lf-responsive element. These results indicate that the Bax gene is a novel ∆Lf target. Moreover we also showed that the O-GlcNAc/P interplay, which controls ∆Lf transcriptional activity, modulates Bax transactivation.
