Abstract

In most of acute myeloid leukemia patients there is an aberrant tyrosine kinases activity. The Sprouty family proteins were originally identified in Drosophila melanogaster as antagonists of Breathless, the mammalian ortholog of fibroblast growth factor receptor. This family proteins are inhibitors of RAS signaling induced by tyrosine kinases receptors and they are implicated in negative feedback processes regulating several intracellular pathways. The present study aims to investigate the role of a member of the Sprouty family, Sprouty1, as regulator of cell proliferation and growth in patients affected by acute myeloid leukemia. Sprouty1 mRNA and protein were both significantly down-regulated in acute myeloid leukemia cells compared to the normal counterpart, but they were restored when remission is achieved after chemotherapy. Ectopic expression of Sprouty1 revealed that it plays a key role in the proliferation and apoptotic defect that represent a landmark of the leukemic cells. Our study identified Sprouty1 as negative regulator involved in the aberrant signals of acute myeloid leukemia. Furthermore, we found a correlation between Sprouty1 and FoxO3a delocalization in AML at diagnosis, suggesting a multistep regulation of RAF–MEK–ERK signaling in human cancers.
