Summary: Our group focuses on apoptosis in human diseases. We study both molecular mechanisms of drug-induced apoptosis resistance in human cancer and molecular mechanisms of cellular damages caused by an excessive apoptosis. In particular, we focused on anti-apoptotic function of PED and AKT. AKT activation causes cellular proliferation and apoptosis resistance. We identified new AKT interactors: PED and Bcl-w. AKT-mediated PED phosphorylation blocks apoptosis and DISC formation induced by TNF, TRAIL and FAS-L. Bcl-w is an anti-apoptotic member of Bcl2 family proteins. It is stabilized by AKT and protects cells from drug-induced apoptosis. We are actually characterizing anti-apoptotic function of novel AKT interactors. Recently we focused on microRNAs (miRs) and their involvement in apoptosis resistance for development of innovative tools for cancer diagnosis and therapy. miRs are small endogenous non coding RNAs which negatively regulate mRNA translation. We associated miRs-221/222 expression to TRAIL resistance in human non small cell lung cancer, by their specific targeting of p27kip1. In order to better characterize miRs-221/222 role in apoptosis resistance, we are identifying new miRs-221/222 targets and we are identifying new miRs involved in apoptosis resistance in human glioma. Furthermore, we are trying to isolate a specific marker of the cell undergoing to apoptotic cell death. This marker could be used as in vivo-imaging tool, to follow the therapeutic response of human cancer cells. These projects are in collaboration with Prof. Carlo Maria Croce, Ohio State University, Ohio, USA, Vittorio de Franciscis, IEOS/CNR. Existing grants: AIRC, FIRB-International, EU 6 FP
