Study Description

Glioblastoma is a highly aggressive and lethal brain tumor, with limited treatment options. Abnormal activation of the neddylation pathway is observed in glioblastoma, and the NEDD8-activating enzyme (NAE) inhibitor, MLN4924 was previously shown to be effective in glioblastoma cell line models. However, its effect has not been tested in patient-derived glioblastoma stem cells. Immunohistochemistry and public data were analyzed to determine whether NEDD8 pathway proteins are important in glioblastoma development and patient survival. The effects of MLN4924 were evaluated in 4 glioblastoma cell lines and 15 patient-derived glioblastoma stem cells using high content analysis. Immunoblot analysis assessed the NEDD8 pathway proteins and biomarkers. Whole transcriptome analysis identified pathways associated with MLN4924 sensitivity. NAE1 and UBA3 levels increased in glioblastoma patients; high NEDD8 levels were associated with poor clinical outcomes. Glioblastoma cell lines and patient-derived stem cells were highly susceptible to MLN4924, while normal human astrocytes were resistant. ... (Show More)

Dataset ID Description Technology Samples
To identify what factors cause a different reactivity to MLN4924, 15 cells were categorized into high, intermediate, and low MLN4924 resistance groups based on the half-maximal inhibitory concentration (IC50) of MLN4924. PDC1, PCD2, PDC3, PDC4, and PDC5 showed high MLN4924 sensitivity, whereas PDC12, PDC13, PDC14, and PDC15 showed low MLN4924 sensitivity. Whole-transcriptome sequencing of these 9 patient-derived glioblastoma stem cells was performed.
