RIP1 Kinase Is an Oncogenic Driver in Melanoma.


PMID 25724678

Abstract

Although many studies have uncovered an important role for the receptor-binding protein kinase RIP1 in controlling cell death signaling, its possible contributions to cancer pathogenesis have been little explored. Here, we report that RIP1 functions as an oncogenic driver in human melanoma. Although RIP1 was commonly upregulated in melanoma, RIP1 silencing inhibited melanoma cell proliferation in vitro and retarded the growth of melanoma xenografts in vivo. Conversely, while inducing apoptosis in a small proportion of melanoma cells, RIP1 overexpression enhanced proliferation in the remaining cells. Mechanistic investigations revealed that the proliferative effects of RIP1 overexpression were mediated by NF-κB activation. Strikingly, ectopic expression of RIP1 enhanced the proliferation of primary melanocytes, triggering their anchorage-independent cell growth in an NF-κB-dependent manner. We identified DNA copy-number gain and constitutive ubiquitination by a TNFα autocrine loop mechanism as two mechanisms of RIP1 upregulation in human melanomas. Collectively, our findings define RIP1 as an oncogenic driver in melanoma, with potential implications for targeting its NF-κB-dependent activation mechanism as a novel approach to treat this disease.
