The ubiquitin-proteasome system (UPS) plays an important role in maintaining cellular homeostasis by degrading a multitude of key regulatory proteins.

In addition, FBXW11 is post-transcriptionally regulated in osteosarcoma cells leading to increased levels of beta-catenin. In conclusion, our findings show the modulation of FBXW11 in osteogenic lineage and its dysregulation in impaired osteogenic cells.

Abstract

The ubiquitin-proteasome system (UPS) plays an important role in maintaining cellular homeostasis by degrading a multitude of key regulatory proteins. FBXW11, also known as b-TrCP2, belongs to the F-box family, which targets the proteins to be degraded by UPS. Transcription factors or proteins associated with cell cycle can be modulated by FBXW11, which may stimulate or inhibit cellular proliferation. Although FBXW11 has been investigated in embryogenesis and cancer, its expression has not been evaluated in osteogenic cells. With the aim to explore FBXW11gene expression modulation in the osteogenic lineage we performed molecular investigations in mesenchymal stem cells (MSCs) and osteogenic cells in normal and pathological conditions. In vitro experiments as well as ex vivo investigations have been performed. In particular, we explored the FBXW11 expression in normal osteogenic cells as well as in cells of cleidocranial dysplasia (CCD) patients or osteosarcoma cells. Our data showed that FBXW11 expression is modulated during osteogenesis and overexpressed in circulating MSCs and in osteogenically stimulated cells of CCD patients. In addition, FBXW11 is post-transcriptionally regulated in osteosarcoma cells leading to increased levels of beta-catenin. In conclusion, our findings show the modulation of FBXW11 in osteogenic lineage and its dysregulation in impaired osteogenic cells.
