Sažetak
We examined 42 fresh non-small cell lung carcinomas for allelic loss using 4 microsatellite markers located in a 4.5 Mb region in 21q11-21, a gene-poor interval recently found by others to be homozygously deleted and exhibiting frequent allelic loss in lung cancer. We found allelic loss across the entire segment in 13/34 informative squamous carcinomas, with 2 cases showing loss in only part of the region. Analysis by fluorescence in situ hybridization of P1-derived artificial chromosomes from the region directly on paraffin sections of the tumor is in concordance with the loss of heterozygosity (LOH) results, and tentatively excludes a 2 Mb segment bearing 2 of the only 3 known genes in the area. Exon trapping in the remaining segment of loss led to identification and cloning of a novel gene spanning 150 kb within the deletion. The full.length gene encodes a protein of 1,055 amino acids with homology to ubiquitin-specific proteases across the eukaryotic evolutionary spectrum. The expressed protein acts as a de-ubiquitinating enzyme as proved by the ability to cleave ubiquitin from a model fusion protein. We found no mutations in the sequence of the functional domains of this gene in any of the LOH-exhibiting tumor DNA samples. It is, however, interesting that genes of the same superfamily have been reported on 3p21, a locus showing the most frequent allelic instability and deletions in lung cancer.
