AbstractZEB1 and SNAIL repress CDH1 and induce epithelial-mesenchymal transition (EMT). However, SNAIL and ZEB1 also activate or regulate other target genes in different ways. For instance, vitamin D receptor (VDR), which activates CDH1 expression upon ligand binding, is repressed by SNAIL but induced by ZEB1. We examined whether the biological activity of SNAIL and ZEB1 in colon cancer is regulated by interacting cofactors. The mRNA expression levels of SNAIL and ZEB1, and of transcriptional regulators p300 and CtBP, were measured by RT-PCR in tumor and normal tissue from 101 colon carcinoma patients. Overexpression of SNAIL was associated with down-regulation of CDH1 and VDR (p = 0.004 and p < 0.001). CDH1 correlated with VDR (r = 0.49; p < 0.001). ZEB1 expression also correlated with VDR (r = 0.23; p = 0.019). However, when CtBP was strongly expressed, ZEB1 was inversely correlated with CDH1 (r = -0.39; p = 0.053). Furthermore, when there were elevated p300 expression levels, the correlation between expression of ZEB1 and VDR was stronger (r = 0.38; p = 0.070). Association between SNAIL expression and down-regulation of CDH1 and VDR was lost in tumors in which p300 and CtBP were strongly expressed. These results indicate that the levels of expression of CtBP and p300 are critical for the action of SNAIL and ZEB1, which have a pivotal role in EMT, and show the importance of CtBP and p300 for tumor progression. © 2006 Wiley-Liss, Inc.
