Examination of sphorylation but not depletion of Rb. Rb depletion was numerous Rb immunoblots published by different observed in both HT1080 and HCT116 colon carcinoma groups showed that in many (but not all) cases Rb cells, where p21 was induced by DNA-damaging agents.

In the present inhibited by p21-targeting short hairpin RNA or by a study, we have asked (i) whether a decrease in the Rb transdominant inhibitor of p53.

We have described previously a subline of HT1080 cells, p21-9, which expresses p21 from a promoterinducible by b-galactoside isopropyl-b-thio-galactoside(IPTG) (Chang et al., 1999). p21 induction in HT1080p21-9 leads to Rb dephosphorylation and depletion p53-inducible cyclin-dependent kinase (CDK) inhibitor without any changes in Rb mRNA levels (Chang et al., p21 (CDKN1A) is the key mediator of damage-induced 2000). As shown in Figure 1a (left lanes), Rb was cell-cycle arrest. p21 interacts with different cyclin/CDK dephosphorylated and its signal intensity decreased 24– complexes and other regulators of transcription and 48 h after IPTG addition. To determine if the reduced signal transduction, exerting broad effects on cell Rb signal indicates a decrease in protein levels rather survival, gene expression and morphology (Roninson, than altered antibody reactivity, we have used both a 2002). p21 effects are partially mediated by Rb, which is mouse monoclonal and a rabbit polyclonal antibody inactivated in proliferating cells through phosphoryla- against Rb.

The extent of Rb depletion was somewhat lower in the To determine if p53 contributes to Rb depletion in presence than in the absence of GSE56 (Figure 1a); this response to p21, we have analysed the effects of p21 on modest effect can be accounted for by the lower p21 Rb in HT1080 p21-9 cells, where p53 activity was levels. Hence, p53 is not required for p21-induced Rb blocked by GSE56, a transdominant inhibitor of p53 function (Ossovskaya et al., 1996). p21 induction by To determine if Rb depletion is a general consequence IPTG was about twofold lower in the presence of of its dephosphorylation, we compared the effects of p21 GSE56 (Figure 1a, right lanes). This inhibition most and two other Rb-dephosphorylating CDK inhibitors,p16Ink4A (CDKN1A), which inhibits CDK4/6, andp27Kip1 (CDKN2B), which inhibits CDK2. p16 andp27 were expressed in HT1080 cells from an IPTG- IPTG (hr)

In contrast, p16 caused only dephosphory- lation but not depletion of Rb. Hence, Rb depletion is not a general consequence of its dephosphorylation.
We have investigated whether Rb depletion in response to DNA damage is determined by p21.

GSE56 (Ossovskaya et al., 1996) was introduced intoHT1080 p21-9 cells via a retroviral vector LXSE (Kandel et al., 1997); the transduced cells were selected by flow sorting for greenfluorescent protein fluorescence.

In summary, we have found that p21 (which inhibits The sequence of events, wherein p21 first activates Rb CDK2 and CDK4/6) and p27 (a selective CDK2 through dephosporylation and then deactivates it inhibitor) cause not only dephosphorylation but also through depletion, suggests negative feedback regula- degradation of Rb.

We note, However, this interpretation seems unlikely, because however, that this pattern is not common to all cellular expression of p16 was shown to inhibit not only senescent fibroblast cultures, since some senescent CDK4/6 but also CDK2, by causing reassortment of fibroblasts show apparent Rb depletion by immuno- cyclin–CDK-inhibitor complexes (Jiang et al., 1998).

In contrast to normal the other hand, p21 and p27 are structurally much senescent fibroblasts, p21 expression is maintained over more similar to each other than to p16 outside their a long term in p16-deficient tumor cells rendered CDK-binding domains, and it is plausible that their senescent by DNA damage (Chang et al., 2002), and interactions with non-CDK proteins are responsible in such cases Rb appears dispensable for long-term for the degradation of dephosphorylated Rb. This maintenance of cell-cycle arrest. p21-mediated transcrip- interpretation is also consistent with the observed tional inhibition of multiple cell-cycle progression genes dephosphorylation but not degradation of Rb in cells (Chang et al., 2000) provides one of the mechanisms that expressing low levels of p21 (Figures 2a and 3a).

The finding that p21 both activates Rb by proteasome, since it is inhibited by ALLN that has dephosporylation and inactivates it by degradation proteasome inhibition as its primary effect (Drexler, provides another explanation for the dual tumor 1997). p21-induced Rb degradation is unlikely to be suppressor/oncogenic functions of p21.
