The alternative ways of cancer

The alternative processing of genomic loci through alternative splicing (AS) to produce multiple transcripts is a prevalent mode of gene expression regulation in multicellular organisms. Although the specific function of the majority of alternative transcripts remains unknown, the differential production of transcript isoforms has been related to essential biological processes, such as the acquisition of tissue-specific functions, and it has been long recognized that disruption of splicing mechanisms can cause disease, including cancer. Cancer arises from genetic and epigenetic alterations that interfere with essential mechanisms of the normal life cycle of cells, such as replication control, DNA repair and cell death, and multiple cancer-related alterations have been described to induce AS changes in tumor transcriptomes. Cancer-related mutations that disrupt splicing regulatory motifs or create cryptic ones, as well as mutations and expression alterations in splicing factors and chromatin regulators, can lead to alterations in RNA processing and splicing of genes, which in turn impact their function and contribute to the pathological properties of tumors. The prevalence of AS in cancer genomes and its prominent role in cancer-related processes indicates that these alterations may be related to significant functional impacts and may explain some of the observed oncogenic properties.


With the aim to address this question, we have recently performed an exhaustive analysis of the functional impacts produced by AS changes in tumors (Climente-Gonzalez et al. 2017). We described how cancer specific AS changes lead frequently to shorter protein products and sometimes, although less often, to a non-coding transcript. As a consequence, transcript isoforms that are more highly expressed in tumors encode for fewer functional domains, i.e. there is a potential loss of functional capacities of genes in cancer. Interestingly, the protein domains more frequently affected by AS belong to functional families classically affected by somatic mutations in tumors. Additionally, these functional domain losses are in fact strongly associated to protein-protein interactions, and often affect partners of classical cancer drivers. Moreover, since we analyzed the splicing changes occurring in each individual tumor sample, we were able to observe that protein affecting mutations and splicing changes that affect similar functional domain families tend to occur in different patients, suggesting an equivalence between the mutations and splicing changes. Splicing alterations may thus recapitulate similar functional impacts to those observed through genetic alterations, namely protein affecting mutations and copy number alterations, more commonly associated with cancer. Transcriptome data thus shows that alternative splicing has a functional impact similar to other alterations, and may also play a driving role in cancer progression.

Large-scale analysis of genome and transcriptome alterations in multiple tumors unveils novel cancer-relevant splicing networks

We have recently studied the variability of the cell transcriptome in several tumours to describe new relevant alterations in cancer. The genetic information of cells is encoded in the DNA. This information is read by the cellular machinery, which will generate the so-called RNA and then translate it into proteins. Sometimes, the same gene can give rise to different RNA molecules, which may produce proteins with potentially very different functions. This is due to a process known as alternative splicing, which influences the synthesis of most of the RNAs and proteins of eukaryotic cells and its regulation depends on the RNA-binding proteins (RBPs).

Despite the importance of alternative splicing in cell function being widely known by the scientific community, the role it plays in cancer is only beginning to be realized. This has been possible thanks to new sequencing technologies and the availability of RNA sequencing data of multiple tumours through projects such as The Cancer Genome Atlas (TCGA). Although cancer originates from mutations in DNA, they have an impact on the set of RNA molecules of the cell, known as the transcriptome, which can induce and maintain mechanisms linked to the development of cancer. We have now studied the alterations in RBPs that could cause changes in alternative splicing linked to the development of cancer.

For this analysis, we have used various tools developed in our lab. Among them, we used SUPPA a fast and accurate tool to study splicing from multiple samples. Thanks to SUPPA, we could calculate the splicing profiles of more than 4000 samples in less than one day. We then carried out a comprehensive analysis of the mutations, copy number alterations and expression differences in genes, as well as the alternative splicing changes associated to them, for these samples from eleven different types of cancer taken from the TCGA project. This analysis showed RBPs are often altered in human tumours and that these alterations determine the cell transcriptome and induce cell transformations related to the development of cancer. Until now, these alterations remained invisible to the methods used in major cancer genome analysis projects.

With the collaboration of Juan Valcárcel’s lab (CRG) and Miguel Ángel Pujana’s lab (ICO), we were able to show that introducing the identified alterations of the transcriptome in non-tumour cells, these acquire tumourigenic properties. In addition to expanding our knowledge on the role of RBPs in tumours, these results highlight the importance of alternative splicing as a complementary mechanism in the development of cancer, becoming a new relevant factor to be taken into account in the study of this disease. This research opens up new ways of understanding the biology of cancer and searching for new therapeutic strategies. The alterations in alternative splicing are particularly important in the context of those tumours that do not harbour known mutations and for which no therapy is known, and, therefore, they may open new opportunities to understand tumour biology and search for new therapies.

This study was made possible thanks to the funding from the Sandra Ibarra Foundation, the Consolider RNAREG project from MINECO, the funding from AGAUR, as well as from other projects of the Spanish Government and FEDER funds.

The switch of cancer

For many years, scientists have struggled to understand and cure cancer. The study of the genome of multiple tumors has been fundamental to detect recurrent alterations in several types of cancer, and has facilitated their classification and the development of new therapeutic strategies. In particular, high-throughput technologies have been applied in the context of multiple international projects to detect actionable alterations, i.e. genetic changes in the genome of cancer cells that can be used to develop new targeted therapies. These studies have highlighted the heterogeneity of genetic alterations in patients suffering from the same type of cancer, motivating the development of individualized treatments. However, known actionable alterations tend to occur at low frequency, and often a tumor sample has fewer mutations than those seemingly necessary to explain the tumoral process. Thus, there is a need to expand the catalogue of cancer signatures to integrate other molecular alterations for the characterization of individual tumors.

Most of the strategies used in cancer genome projects are based on searching for genetic alterations or changes in the expression of genes. On the other hand, there is more and more evidence that alterations in the splicing regulatory program play an important role in tumor transformation. Splicing is a process by which the long RNA molecule transcribed from the gene in the genome is processed to remove segments called introns, giving rise to an RNA transcript. Alternative splicing provides a mechanism to generate multiple RNA transcripts from the same gene by eliminating introns in different ways. This process is tightly regulated, and is known to give rise to proteins with cell-type specific or opposing functions, or even provide a way to activate or deactivate gene function. This dramatic change between conditions lead by splicing is generally called a splicing switch.


Splicing switches that are not originally present and regulated in cells can induce altered cellular states, leading to disease. Accordingly, the determination of alterations in alternative splicing in tumors can be fundamental for the development of tumor specific molecular targets for prognosis and therapy. However, this analysis is generally hindered by the heterogeneity of tumors of the same origin from different individuals, as well as by the normal variability between individuals. In our group we have developed a new computational method, robust to biological and technical variability, which identifies significant splicing switches across a large number of tumor samples and shows high accuracy on held-out datasets. Moreover, the method is capable of identifying complex alternative splicing changes that cannot be described using standard methodologies. Additionally, the method is independent of parameterizations, which is especially relevant for the analysis of RNA sequencing data from samples from multiple laboratories and technological platforms.

We have applied this method to data from the Cancer Genome Atlas (TCGA) project, which is the NIH-funded branch of the ICGC project. This is the first published large-scale analysis describing the splicing alterations in 9 cancer types using RNA sequencing data from more than 4000 samples. This is possibly the first systematic study of alternative splicing alterations in 9 difference cancer types using so many patient samples. In this work, we have discovered that there exist many splicing switches in patients with the same cancer type that can separate with high accuracy tumor and normal samples, and different types of cancer from each other, providing a predictive signature. In particular, these signatures provide simple rules based on the expression of a few RNA molecules that could allow determining the cancer type from an RNA sample of a new patient. Additionally, we found such set of rules for the triple-negative breast cancer subtype, which is one of the most aggressive subtypes of breast cancer. This new computational method reveals novel signatures of cancer in terms of RNA transcript isoforms specifically expressed in tumors, providing potential novel molecular targets for prognosis and therapy.

The new voyage of the “Argonautes”

A new publication from our group describes a new function for a protein mostly characterized for its role in directing small non-coding RNAs to their targets.

Small RNA molecules, which include the so called micro-RNAs (miRNAs), provide a powerful mechanism to regulate gene expression in the cell cytoplasm either by triggering degradation of the messenger RNAs molecules (mRNA) or by inhibiting their translation into proteins. This mechanism, known as post-transcriptional gene silencing, takes place in the cell cytoplasm and has important implications for understanding developmental and disease processes. The miRNAs are guided to their targets by a molecular complex that is made of a group of proteins called Argonautes. These proteins are essential to direct the miRNAs to their mRNA targets, and their structure and role in the post-transcriptional gene silencing has been thoroughly described up to date.

In this work, we report that Argonaute proteins also play an important role in gene regulation in the cell nucleus. The published work describes how Argonaute proteins, besides their role in post-transcriptional regulation, can also affect gene expression during transcription, the cell process that makes mRNA from DNA. In particular, this work shows evidence that Argonaute can bind to specific locations of the genome. These locations are transcriptional enhancers, regions in the DNA that control of the expression of one or multiple genes by governing when these genes must be turned on or off. Enhancers are usually placed far from the genes they regulate, but they can also occur inside a gene. The activation of enhancers takes place through binding of specific factors, as well as by the acquisition of multiple chemical modifications by the chromatin, the structural packing of DNA in the cell that makes possible to hold the long DNA chains from chromosomes into small volumes in the cell nucleus. Each cell type has a specific subset of enhancers that are activated by generic biochemical modifications of the chromatin and by specific protein factors that control gene expression in that cell, and which ultimately determines the cell identity. The aberrant activation or silencing of enhancers can impact cell function and lead to cell transformation, like cancer.


This article describes how the Argonaute protein AGO1 can bind to enhancer regions inside genes when they are activated, and thereby directly affect how the RNA molecule transcribed from that gene locus is processed (see Image). In particular, using high-throughput sequencing techniques to describe the regions of the chromatin that have specific biochemical modifications, and which ones interact with Argonatue proteins, we have discovered that the Argonaute protein, specifically the member AGO1 from the Argonaute protein family, binds preferentially to active transcriptional enhancers and that this association is mediated by the RNA molecules that are produced from the active enhancers, also known as enhancer RNAs (eRNAs). Moreover, the interaction of AGO1 with enhancers occurs mostly inside genic regions and appears to affect the splicing of the host gene rather than its transcription. In summary, this work suggests that AGO1 has a function in the nucleus that is related to the activation of transcriptional enhancers, and from these sites is capable to modulate the processing of the RNA from the same locus. These results contribute to the understanding of the complex regulation of gene expression in eukaryotic cells. This work proposes that Argonautes can perform yet another voyage to the nucleus to control how genes are processed, proving to be important and versatile players in determining cell function.

This work has been funded by the Sandra Ibarra Foundation for cancer and by the European Network on alternative splicing EURASNET.

cheap Canada Goose In some cases such as Vivienne Westwood for the English National Ballet, famous fashion designers canada goose outlet kokemuksia were enlisted to attract a younger audience or renew the image of a company; in others, directors and producers canada goose uk set on specific designers who have some connections with dance or theatre or a long canada goose outlet store uk standing tradition of working for the stage. For example, Thierry Mugler was a dancer, Altuzarra studied ballet, while Christian Lacroix started working canada goose outlet los angeles for the theatre in 1986 and designed costumes for productions both in France and abroad, winning twice the Molire Award, France’s national theatre prize for Best Costume Designer. cheap Canada Goose

Yet there is one basic problems with all these contemporary designers and fashion houses suddenly turning costume designers: in most cases the designers do not have any passion for what they are doing or any basic knowledge of the disciplines canada goose outlet in new york practiced on that stage or behind that camera. An admirer of Maurice Bjart, the canada goose outlet real late Gianni Versace was one canada goose parka uk of the most prolific designers and creator of costumes, but we all know that his sister Donatella doesn have the same passion or skills.

Canada Goose Jackets Designing a costume as we learnt from previous posts on this site is a radically different art from creating a fashion collection. A costume is an exercise in theatricality that must also take into account the movement, gestures and comfort of the wearer; a fashion collection is mainly a commercial exercise, the result of a series of factors, from trends to desirability. Canada Goose Jackets

Canada Goose Outlet While some designers lack the skills and humbleness to work for the stage, the main problem at the moment is that, canada goose jacket outlet toronto than designing from scratch, most of these designers are mainly adapting borrowing from Canada Goose Outlet previous work. Canada Goose Outlet

Canada Goose Parka Tisci adapted his Autumn/Winter 2010 collection for canada goose outlet houston Givenchy with its memento mori themes in the costumes for Ravel “Bolero”, coming up with a flowing silk tulle skirt with underneath tulle bodysuits covered in embroideries that imitate bones and reproduce the outline of a skeleton. Canada Goose Parka

canadian goose jacket Apparently the main aim of the choreographers was the dancers all wearing the same canada goose shop uk costume to abandon themselves to the rhythm of music, symbolically shedding their skins and turning into moving skeletons. This is why during the piece, from dervishes in tulle skirts they become incarnations of Kriminal (ah, if only we could ask certain dancers or actors what they think about their costumes.). canada goose vest outlet canadian goose jacket

Canada Goose sale One of the moved to such famous collaborations focuses on the fact that a ballet, an opera or a theatrical piece shouldn be about the costumes, since, unfortunately, in some cases coverage given to costumes unfairly overshadowed the performance. Yet there is also another problem with these recent examples. Canada Goose sale

Canada Goose online Recycling such themes and inspirations denotes a lack of imagination and of artistic vocabulary, something that became quite clear in 2011 when, interviewed by Newsweek about designing the costumes for her father first ballet, Stella McCartney stated “I do performance wear these dancers are athletes, so I have an understanding of that. And it doesn take a rocket scientist to figure out that you have to use stretch materials if you working with ballerinas.” Canada Goose online

canada goose coats In a nutshell, clad them in Lycra and you done, this is probably why you expected some of the dancers in “Ocean Kingdom” to start singing “Jellicle Songs For Jellicle Cats” any canada goose outlet ottawa minute, their tight suits confusing the boundaries between ballet and musical (yes, there is a difference there). canada goose coats

canada goose black friday sale Talk to different costume designers and they will tell you amazing stories about finding a solution for a specific material, playing with metres and metres of plastic, spending entire weeks trying to turn pasta shapes and pan sponges into glamorously grand jewels. canada goose black friday sale

canada goose clearance Costumes create a theatrical illusion for the audience, help life a personality to a character but also free the costume designer imagination. Think about Bernard Dayd PVC and lurex costumes for “Bacchus and Ariadne” (1967): they did echo in some ways the space age fashion trends so popular at the time, but they weren borrowed from a specific fashion collection (and look at the details included in the and at the notes of the designers). canada goose clearance

canada goose deals According to reports, Tisci canada goose outlet mississauga said he had made one of his dreams come true, “It is one of the dreams of a designer to design costumes for a ballet.” You wonder why if it your dream to become a costume designer you don study for such a career. canada goose outlet boston But then we all know that many careers aren built on skills or studies, but on connections and on the celebrities you know. generating buzz, attention and opportunity, costumes tour the of flagship stores, in thirty time, will be exhibited in art museums.

Canada Goose sale It rained buckets our first evening in. We sat in our room sipping vodka we brought from Penang, watching the sky canada goose sale uk turn from mud to black and waiting for the rain to stop. It didn So around half past seven we grabbed umbrellas and went in search of dinner. Canada Goose sale

cheap Canada Goose goes to bed at sunset. The streets were empty, the sidewalks rolled up. We splashed our way past Pasar Siti Kadijah to the night market and found it a shadow of its 2005 self. There were no crowds, no buzz. Nor was there anything tempting on offer at the few stalls weathering the storm. cheap Canada Goose

canada goose So we headed back to the hotel, passing fast food joints belching out that nasty elixir of too sweet baked goods, preservatives and grease that hangs over airport food courts. No thanks. We rather go hungry, and were reconciled to doing so until we turned onto Jalan Tok canada goose outlet germany Hakim and saw, three blocks up, a promising glow. canada goose

my friend!” shouted the white taqiyah capped proprietor canada goose factory outlet toronto location as we stepped over the threshold of Kedai Kopi Din Tokyo.

Pak Din grinned at us as if we were long lost friends, then pointed to a place at his counter. “Come in, come in! canada goose outlet vip What will you eat? What will you drink?”

canada goose coats Kedai Kopi Pak Din Tokyo is an indoor kuda, the Kelantanese term for old fashioned coffee stalls with U shaped counters and long wooden benches that must be mounted like a steed (kuda is Malay for horse). Inside the interior of the U sits a big boiler on legs where Pak Din makes good, strong Chinese kopitiam style coffee and tea canada goose outlet england by pouring water through grounds filled cotton socks suspended from metal rings. At the U base is a long stainless steel trough over which he “pulls” tea by pouring it glass to glass, stirs quail eggs into hot ginger infusion and steeps eggs in boiling water before serving them in classic kopitiam green and white saucers. canada goose coats

canada goose black friday sale Short and canada goose outlet niagara falls sturdily built, Pak Din is a blur taking orders, serving drinks and food, selling cigarettes, making change and shaking hands, all the while spewing friendly banter and communicating, via the occasional shout, with the kitchen at the back of canada goose outlet buffalo his shop. If there a break in the action he makes good use of it, wiping down counters, replenishing the water boiler from a red plastic bucket and keeping glasses always at the ready, stacked in a drainer over the trough warm with splashes of water from the boiler. canada goose black friday sale

What would we eat? On a night like this, our backs wet canada goose outlet toronto address and our pants soaked to our knees, something hot and comforting sounded about right. So thought Pak Din patrons, most of whom were leaning over bowls of the house specialty: sup ekor (oxtail soup).

We ordered two bowls of soup and spooned it up slowly, marvelling at this concoction of meat, bones, tendons, cinnamon, star anise and nutmeg canada goose parka outlet that tasted too good to be medicine yet instantly rendered us healthy, happy and certain that the world canada goose outlet store calgary is a beautiful place. The hyper distilled broth was deep, real deep, a gut punch of meat essence. When we got to the bottom of our bowls it came as no surprise to find them stained sup ekor brown.

canadian goose jacket By now the rain had stopped but we lingered, reluctant to leave the comradely warmth of Pak Din U. We ordered a hot milky teh tarik just for the enjoyment of watching his exuberant way with the pull, and then another because the first was so darned tasty, the tea strong and bitter enough to not be overwhelmed by sweetened condensed milk. We sauntered back to our room wired and satisfied. canadian goose jacket

canada goose clearance We returned to Kedai Kopi Pak Din the next day and the next and the next, always around 7am for our caffeine fix and then once or twice again, for tea and a banana leaf wrapped nasi lemak or a few Kelantanese kuih plucked from the trays and plates lined up along the inside edges of the counters. During the day Pak Din staff set tables out front of the shop, and if there were no places at the U two were always found for us there. canada goose clearance

Canada Goose Outlet On our last day in, after a morning of too much food and before the long drive back to Penang, we stopped in to bid Pak Din farewell. Dave couldn resist ordering a couple of soft boiled eggs. When they arrived he followed the lead of other diners and blanketed them with black pepper from a shaker on the counter. (That black pepper is a Kelantanese touch, courtesy of the state long porous border with southern Thailand. In other parts of Malaysia it would be white). Canada Goose Outlet

We agreed that if we lived in which would never, ever in a million years happen Kedai Kopi Pak Din would be a canada goose factory outlet daily stop, if not for the sup ekor, the coffee, or the soft boiled eggs then simply for the pure pleasure of Pak Din hello.

Way back in July we spent some time in, the capital city of Kelantan state, in the northeast of the peninsula, working on a feature story for Travel+Leisure Southeast Asia September 2011 Food Issue.

Khota Baru or KB, as Malaysians call it, held many surprises for us. canada goose outlet florida In what is often described as the country most conservative Islamic state, we found its friendliest people warm and incredibly welcoming to outsiders. And there, in a city that most tourists breeze through on their way to the Perhentian islands, we ate as well as maybe even better than than we do in Penang. The food in Khota Baru and around is mind bogglingly good.

canada goose deals We ate the best of many great meals in Wakaf Baru, a scruffy town about 20 minutes from downtown by car. When the last car had passed families popped out of vehicles parked on the other side of the tracks and made their way across to Restoran Kampung Kulim. The restaurant dining area, a corrugated metal shaded patch of concrete furnished with canada goose outlet montreal plastic tables and chairs, comes with a view of a Thai Buddhist wat, one of hundreds in this northeastern Malaysian state where canada goose jacket outlet uk 95% of the population is Malay and Muslim. canada goose deals

canada goose coats on sale The family that owns and runs Kampung Kulim are Hokkien Siam, a term for descendents of marriages between immigrants from China’s Fujian province and Thailand. They speak a mixture of Malay, Fujianese and Thai, a linguistic fusion that plays out on the plate in dishes incorporating coconut milk and chilies, bitter melon and taucu (fermented bean paste), curry paste and budu, a wincingly odiferous fermented fish condiment beloved in southern Thailand and along the northeastern Malaysian coast. canada goose coats on sale

We ate a few dishes that night: hong bak, an intriguingly salty sweet stew of pork belly made with star anise and copious shavings brown palm sugar, mustard leaves simply fried with sliced pork and dang hoon heh, a sparingly seasoned red coconut curry with whole prawns and vermicelli.

canada goose store But the dish that stays with me 9 months later is siew gai or grilled canada goose uk site chicken. I have eaten much grilled chicken in my time in southeast Asia. Restoran Kampung Kulim is sublime, as in beyond description sublime. I could goose outlet canada have written 1,000 words about that siew gai alone. But then half my article would have been about chicken. canada goose store

It all in the technique, as Dave and I found when we walked out back of the restaurant to its open kitchen. There we found a lean, mean septuagenarian grilling machine laboring over a coconut husk filled trench, using upturned, jerry rigged cracker tins to infuse their canada goose outlet store new york birds with extra char.

buy canada goose jacket cheap After dropping a whole chicken unmarinated, lightly salted onto an upright “spit” set in the middle of the coconut husk embers (think beer can chicken with a rod replacing the can), the master griller drops a square cracker tin on top. As the fire rages around the can, creating enough heat to brown and crisp the chicken skin, the coals beneath the chicken burn slow canada goose outlet toronto location enough to cook its flesh without drying it out. Exces oil drips out of the chicken carcass during the cooking process. After just 20 minutes the bird is finished. buy canada goose jacket cheap

Canada Goose Parka When the chickens are done the grill master passes them on to his canada goose outlet washington dc colleague, who commands the chopping block. Before they served he arranges the cleavered birds on a banana leaf round a nice touch that lends a bit of extra fragrance to the dish. (They both also farmers.) Surprised at first to find themselves being photographed, they quickly relaxed and got into it. Canada Goose Parka

buy canada goose jacket Presumably everyone who eats at Restoran Kampung Kulim knows the story behind its spectacular grilled chicken, but I not sure how many diners make their way behind the scenes to thank these men for their brilliant work. After all they just doing what they been doing, day after day, for years. buy canada goose jacket

Canada Goose Jackets As some of you may already know, in early July we spent some time working in, the capital of Malaysia Kelantan state.
