Title in Portuguese
O papel do fator de transcrição POD-1 na regulação de SF-1 e LRH-1 em células tumorais da suprarrenal humana.
Keywords in Portuguese

Suprarrenal humana
Abstract in Portuguese
SF-1 e LRH-1 são fatores de transcrição que exercem um papel fundamental na produção de esteroides nas gônadas e na suprarrenal, além de estarem envolvidos no processo tumorigênico desses órgãos. Por outro lado, POD-1 apresenta menor expressão em carcinomas adrenocorticais, e parece regular Sf-1. Nesse trabalho foi analisado o papel de POD-1 na regulação de SF-1 e de LRH-1 em células de tumores adrenocorticais. A hiperexpressão de POD-1 resultou em redução da expressão SF-1/SF-1. Em contraste, houve um aumento da expressão gênica de LRH-1, devido à diminuição da expressão de SHP, um regulador negativo de LRH-1. Nas células transfectadas com siRNA-POD-1, os níveis de POD-1 foram reduzidos e de SF-1 aumentado, reforçando o mecanismo regulatório entre os fatores. No ChIP assay, POD-1 se ligou a sequência E-box do promotor de SF-1. Por outro lado, não foi caracterizado a ligação de POD-1 no promotor LRH-1, embora POD-1 tenha se ligado ao E-box do promotor SHP. A redução de SF-1 diminuiu a expressão de StAR, mas não modulou a proliferação das células tumorais. Em resumo, POD-1 pode ter um papel mais amplo como regulador da transcrição de fatores que controlam o processo tumorigênico, e é um candidato a gene supressor de tumor nas células adrenocorticais.

Abstract in English
SF-1 and LRH-1 have played a critical role in steroid production, adrenal and gonads. Moreover, there are evidences that they have acted in tumorigenesis process in these organs. POD-1 is downregulated in adrenocortical carcinoma (ACC) it seems to regulate Sf-1. In this work, it has been to analyse the role of POD-1 in SF-1 and LRH-1 regulation in adrenocortical tumor cells. The POD-1 overexpression has reduced SF-1/SF-1 expression. However, there was an increase of LRH-1 gene expression due to SHP expression decrease which is negative regulate of LRH-1. The POD-1 and SF-1 gene expression in transfected cells with siRNA-POD-1 has shown POD-1 decrease and SF-1 increase emphasizing a regulatory mechanism between POD-1 and SF-1. By ChIP assay it was shown that POD-1 binded in SF-1 promoter E-box sequence. It was not characterized that POD-1 binded in LRH-1 promoter, although POD-1 can bind in SHP promoter E-box sequence. The reduction of SF-1 expression by POD-1 has decreased the StAR expression, however, it was not enough to change tumor cell proliferation. In summary, POD-1 must have a wider role as regulator of fator transcription which controls tumorigenese process being a possible candidate as tumor supressor gene in adrenocortical cells.
