Abstract:
Tumors utilize aerobic glycolysis to support growth and invasion. However, the molecular mechanisms that link metabolism with invasion are not well understood. The nutrient sensor O-linked-β-N-acetylglucosamine (O-GlcNAc) transferase (OGT) modifies intracellular proteins with N-acetylglucosamine. Cancers display elevated O-GlcNAcylation and suppression of O-GlcNAcylation inhibits cancer invasion and metastasis. Here, we show that the regulation of cancer invasion by OGT is dependent on the NAD+-dependent deacetylase SIRT1. Reducing O-GlcNAcylation elevates SIRT1 levels and activity in an AMPK (AMP-activated protein kinase α)-dependent manner. Reduced O-GlcNAcylation in cancer cells leads to SIRT1-mediated proteasomal degradation of oncogenic transcription factor FOXM1 in an MEK/ERK-dependent manner. SIRT1 is critical for OGT-mediated regulation of FOXM1 ubiquitination and reducing SIRT1 activity reverses OGT-mediated regulation of FOXM1. Moreover, we show that SIRT1 levels are required for OGT-mediated regulation of invasion and metastasis in breast cancer cells. Thus, O-GlcNAcylation is a central component linking metabolism to invasion and metastasis via an SIRT1/ERK/FOXM1 axis.
