Submitter Supplied Information

Non-metastatic 2 (NME2) is an established metastases suppressor in multiple human cancer types. However, the molecular mechanisms of NME2 action remain insufficiently resolved. We recently validated the transcription regulatory activity of NME2 with respect to control of proto-oncogene c-MYC expression. We hypothesized that large scale transcriptional potential of NME2 may be at the core of metastases suppression by NME2. Using a combination of high throughput genomic assays such as chromatin immunoprecipitation coupled to promoter array hybridization (ChIP-chip) and gene expression profiling, we characterized the transcriptional roles of NME2. Specifically, we found a set of NME2 target genes which changed expression upon selective depletion of NME2 in a lung cancer cell line, A549. The analysis of gene expression suggested control of various biological pathways esp. cell adhesion and apoptosis by NME2 target genes which could be important in regulation of metastases.
