Expression of far upstream element-binding protein 1 correlates with c-Myc expression in sacral chordomas and is associated with tumor progression and poor prognosis

Expression of far upstream element-binding protein 1 correlates with c-Myc expression in sacral... The far upstream element (FUSE)-binding protein 1 (FUBP1), a well-known transcriptional regulator of the proto-oncogene c-Myc, has been demonstrated by previous work to be aberrantly expressed in a variety of tumors and plays a critical role in tumor progression; however, its expression and function in relatively rare and aggressive chordomas remains unclear. In this retrospective study, we reviewed clinicopathologic characteristics of 40 patients diagnosed with sacral chordoma, and analyzed 40 tumor and 20 distant normal tissues obtained from patients during the primary surgical tumor excision. Using immunohistochemistry, we observed an up-regulation in the expression of FUBP1 and c-Myc in sacral chordomas compared with the normal tissues (P = 0.001 for both). Additionally, positive correlations of FUBP1 expression with c-Myc (γ = 0.651, P < 0.001) and the cell proliferation index Ki-67 expression (γ = 0.447, P = 0.004) were indicated using Spearman's rank correlation coefficient. Increased expression of FUBP1 was significantly associated with tumor invasion into the surrounding muscles (P = 0.002). Kaplan-Meier curves demonstrated the association between FUBP1 levels and the patients' local recurrence-free survival (LRFS) (P < 0.001) but not with the overall survival (OS) (P = 0.070). The independent prognostic significance of FUBP1 levels for the LRFS was indicated by multivariate analysis (HR = 4.272; 95% CI, 1.133–16.112; P = 0.032).

Abstract

The far upstream element (FUSE)-binding protein 1 (FUBP1), a well-known transcriptional regulator of the proto-oncogene c-Myc, has been demonstrated by previous work to be aberrantly expressed in a variety of tumors and plays a critical role in tumor progression; however, its expression and function in relatively rare and aggressive chordomas remains unclear. In this retrospective study, we reviewed clinicopathologic characteristics of 40 patients diagnosed with sacral chordoma, and analyzed 40 tumor and 20 distant normal tissues obtained from patients during the primary surgical tumor excision. Using immunohistochemistry, we observed an up-regulation in the expression of FUBP1 and c-Myc in sacral chordomas compared with the normal tissues (P = 0.001 for both). Additionally, positive correlations of FUBP1 expression with c-Myc (γ = 0.651, P < 0.001) and the cell proliferation index Ki-67 expression (γ = 0.447, P = 0.004) were indicated using Spearman's rank correlation coefficient. Increased expression of FUBP1 was significantly associated with tumor invasion into the surrounding muscles (P = 0.002). Kaplan-Meier curves demonstrated the association between FUBP1 levels and the patients' local recurrence-free survival (LRFS) (P < 0.001) but not with the overall survival (OS) (P = 0.070). The independent prognostic significance of FUBP1 levels for the LRFS was indicated by multivariate analysis (HR = 4.272; 95% CI, 1.133–16.112; P = 0.032). Our findings demonstrate an association between FUBP1 levels and chordoma progression and prognosis, suggesting that FUBP1 can be used as a biomarker and a potential therapeutic target.
