1. Μπουκάκης, Γεώργιος. Μελέτη του βιολογικού ρόλου πρωτεϊνών με ικανότητα πρόσδεσης hnRNA και mRNA καθώς και των μηχανισμών της απορύθμισης τους στον ανθρώπινο καρκίνο του πνεύμονα.

The main goal of the present Thesis was to determine the molecular characteristics of the deregulated expression of RNA binding proteins (RBPs), in the human lung cancer, in paired biopsies taken from cancerous and normal adjacent tissue from the same patient. The study focused in members of hnRNP proteins family belonging to the hnRNP A/B subtype (A1, A2/B1 and A3), along with other hnRNPs (hnRNP K/J) as well as the splicing factor ASF/SF2 with a known antagonistic role to hnRNPs in the alternative splicing. In total, 21 biopsy pairs were examined from patients with non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC) (in collaboration with Dr.Ch. Valavanis, “Metaxa” hospital, in the frame of the PENED program). Western blotting and quantitative Real-Time PCR were applied for the semi-quantitative estimation of protein levels in combination with the quantitive estimation of mRNA levels, respectively. This approach allowed the direct comparison of protein and mRNA patterns of expression in cancer/normal tissue from the same patient. To summarize the results, the comparison of cancer related alterations of hnRNP proteins and ASF/SF2 pointed to the lack of correlation between protein and mRNA levels, with the exception of the hnRNP A2/B1. Moreover, the level of overexpression detected for hnRNP A1 and ASF/SF2 in the cancerous tissue, did not correlate with changes in the mRNA level. The results support the existence of distinct molecular mechanisms regulating the expression of closely related hnRNP A/B subtype proteins. In the course of this project new tools, useful in study of hnRNPs, were produced, refering to the expression of recombinant hnRNP A2 and A3 proteins. The application of these new tools, in a series of pull-down experiments performed in lung cell lines extracts, led to the identification of new interactions among hnRNP proteins, in hnRNP and mRNP complexes. The use of these tools also allowed us to investigate the possibility of establishing the hnRNP proteins as biomarker for the early detection of lung cancer. Experiments applying the recombinant proteins hnRNP A/B, as specific antigens, gave clear evidence for the presence of autoantibodies targeting those proteins, in the blood serum of patients with cancer, a finding that rises the perspective of using these proteins, in combination with other biomarkers, as a reliable marker for malignant detection in early stages of lung cancer.
