Abstract

Mutation of breast cancer 2, early onset (BRCA2) has been identified as a vital risk factor for esophageal cancer (EC). To date, several proteins have been reported as BRCA2-interacting proteins and are associated with multiple biological processes. This study's aim was to identify a novel interactive protein of BRCA2 and to explore its functional roles in EC. A yeast two-hybrid screening was performed to identify a novel BRCA2-interacting protein. Glutathione-S-transferase (GST) pull-down analysis was performed to find out how the binding domain of BRCA2 interacts with LIM domains containing 1 (LIMD1). The interaction between LIMD1 and BRCA2 at the endogenous level was confirmed by using coimmunoprecipitation and immunobloting. Furthermore, two different sequences of short hairpin RNAs (shRNAs) against LIMD1 were transfected into the human EC cell line ECA109. Afterward, the effects of LIMD1 suppression on the centrosome localization of BRCA2 and cell division were analyzed using an immunofluorescence microscope. Results showed that LIMD1 was a novel BRCA2-interacting protein, and LIMD1 interacted with the conserved region of BRCA2 (amino acids 2,750–3,094) in vitro. Importantly, after interfering with the protein expression of LIMD1 in ECA109 cells, the centrosome localization of BRCA2 was significantly abolished and abnormal cell division was significantly increased. These results suggested that LIMD1 is a novel BRCA2-interacting protein and is involved in the centrosome localization of BRCA2 and suppression of LIMD1, causing abnormal cell division in EC cells.
