p185BCR/ABL has a lower sensitivity than p210BCR/ABL to the allosteric inhibitor GNF-2 in Philadelphia chromosome-positive acute lymphatic leukemia

Abstract

Background

The t(9;22) translocation leads to the formation of the chimeric breakpoint cluster region/c-abl oncogene 1 (BCR/ABL) fusion gene on der22, the Philadelphia chromosome. The p185BCR/ABL or the p210BCR/ABL fusion proteins are encoded as a result of the translocation, depending on whether a “minor” or “major” breakpoint occurs, respectively. Both p185BCR/ABL and p210BCR/ABL exhibit constitutively activated ABL kinase activity. Through fusion to BCR the ABL kinase in p185BCR/ABL and p210BCR/ABL “escapes” the auto-inhibition mechanisms of c-ABL, such as allosteric inhibition. A novel class of compounds including GNF-2 restores allosteric inhibition of the kinase activity and the transformation potential of BCR/ABL. Here we investigated whether there are differences between p185BCR/ABL and p210BCR/ABL regarding their sensitivity towards allosteric inhibition by GNF-2 in models of Philadelphia chromosome-positive acute lymphatic leukemia.

Design and Methods

We investigated the anti-proliferative activity of GNF-2 in different Philadelphia chromosome-positive acute lymphatic leukemia models, such as cell lines, patient-derived long-term cultures and factor-dependent lymphatic Ba/F3 cells expressing either p185BCR/ABL or p210BCR/ABL and their resistance mutants.

Results

The inhibitory effects of GNF-2 differed constantly between p185BCR/ABL and p210BCR/ABL expressing cells. In all three Philadelphia chromosome-positive acute lymphatic leukemia models, p210BCR/ABL-transformed cells were more sensitive to GNF-2 than were p185BCR/ABL-positive cells. Similar results were obtained for p185BCR/ABL and the p210BCR/ABL harboring resistance mutations.

Conclusions

Our data provide the first evidence of a differential response of p185BCR/ABL- and p210BCR/ABL- transformed cells to allosteric inhibition by GNF-2, which is of importance for the treatment of patients with Philadelphia chromosome-positive acute lymphatic leukemia.

Introduction

The der22 of t(9;22)(q34;q11), the so-called Philadelphia chromosome (Ph), is detected in 95% of patients with chronic myeloid leukemia, as well as in 20–30% of adult acute lymphatic leukemia (ALL) patients. Chronic myeloid leukemia is a myeloproliferative syndrome characterized by an indolent chronic phase with an overgrowth of the mature myeloid cell population, which is, if not treated, inevitably followed by an acute phase, the so-called blast crisis. Clinically, the blast crisis resembles acute leukemia, with a poor prognosis and resistance to therapy.13 Chronic myeloid leukemia in blast crisis displays a myeloid phenotype in two-thirds of cases and a lymphatic phenotype in the remaining one-third.4 In contrast, Ph+ ALL is an acute disease from the onset and is characterized by blasts blocked at the pre-lymphatic stage of differentiation. Patients suffering from Ph+ ALL constitute a high-risk group.5 Lymphatic blast crisis and Ph+ ALL are considered equivalent.13,6

On chromosome 22, the t(9;22) involves the Breakpoint Cluster Region (BCR) gene locus. Two principal breaks occur: the M-bcr, between exons 12 and 16 leading to the creation of p210BCR/ABL, which is the hallmark of chronic myeloid leukemia and the m-bcr, which maps to the first intron of BCR and leads to the creation of p185BCR/ABL. The breakpoint on chromosome 9 is constantly located in intron 1 of the ABL gene locus.4 p185BCR/ABL is exclusive to the Ph+ ALL, whereas p210BCR/ABL is found in about 30% of Ph+ ALL as well as in chronic myeloid leukemia.4 p210BCR/ABL differs from p185BCR/ABL by the presence of the putatively oncogenic Rho-GEF domain. Nevertheless, only few functional and biological differences between p210BCR/ABL and p185BCR/ABL are known.7 Both exhibit constitutively activated kinase activity responsible for the induction of the leukemic phenotypes.5,8 Inhibition using imatinib mesylate (imatinib), nilotinib or dasatinib, classical ATP competitors, is a valid concept for the causal therapy of Ph+ leukemia.

The rapid acquisition of therapy resistance by patients with advanced Ph+ lymphatic leukemia, together with frequent features of patients, such as age or adverse side effects, justify the need for novel approaches to the molecular therapy of these diseases.9 One such novel approach is the restoration of the allosteric inhibition of ABL-kinase activity, one of the major auto-inhibitory mechanisms of the ABL-kinase which is lost by fusion to BCR. Allosteric inhibition occurs through the binding of the myristoylated N-terminus (exon 1) to a hydrophobic pocket in the kinase domain, the myristoyl binding pocket, followed by conformational changes that allow the intra-molecular docking of the SH2 domain to the kinase domain. This process, called “capping”, leads to an auto-inhibited conformation of c-ABL. The lack of the ”cap region” in exon 1 allows BCR/ABL to “escape” auto-inhibition.10,11

In this study, we aimed to further develop allosteric inhibition in Ph+ ALL by investigating the anti-proliferative activity of GNF-2 in different Ph+ ALL models.

Design and Methods

Plasmids

The cDNA encoding p185BCR/ABL, p210BCR/ABL p185BCR/ABL Y253F, p185BCR/ABL E255K, and p185BCR/ABL T315I have been described previously.15 The p210BCR/ABL Y253F, p185BCR/ABL E255K, and p185BCR/ABL T315I were obtained by transfer of a KpnI fragment from p185BCR/ABL E255K, and p185BCR/ABL T315I mutants to a KpnI digested p210BCR/ABL in the pEntry vector (Gateway-Invitrogen, Karsruhe, Germany). The resulting p210BCR/ABL mutant sequences were then recombined in the PAULO destination vector by a Gateway reaction according to the manufacturer’s instructions (Invitrogen). All retroviral expression vectors used in this study were based on the bi-cistronic vector PAULO.12

Cell lines

The Ba/F3, BV-173, Tom-1 and Nalm-6 cells were obtained from the German Collection of Microorganisms and Cell Cultures (DSMZ, Braunschweig, Germany) and were maintained as previously described. Long-term cultures of cells derived from Ph+ ALL patients (PD-LTC) were maintained in a serum–free medium consisting of Iscove’s modified Dulbecco’s medium (IMDM) supplemented with 1 mg/mL of bovine insulin, 5×10−5 M β–mercaptoethanol (Sigma, Steinheim, Germany), 200 mg/mL Fe+–saturated human apo–transferrin (Invitrogen, Karlsruhe, Germany), 0.6% human serum albumin (Sanquin, Amsterdam, the Netherlands), 2.0 mM L–glutamine and 20 mg/mL cholesterol (Sigma).13 Transfection and retroviral infection were performed as previously described.12 GNF-2 was dissolved in dimethylsulfoxide (DMSO) (Sigma) for 1000 x stock solutions (50 μM, 100 μM, 150 μM, 250 μM, 300 μM, 500 μM, and 1 mM).

Cytotoxicity/proliferation

Cytotoxicity/proliferation was assessed using the XTT proliferation kit according to the manufacturer’s instructions (Roche, Mannheim, Germany). Cell growth was assessed by dye exclusion using trypan-blue. The IC50 was calculated using Erithacus software (Erithacus Ltd. East Grinstead, UK).

Western blotting

Western blotting was performed accordingly to widely established protocols using the following antibodies: anti-ABL (α-ABL) (St. Cruz Biotechnology, Santa Cruz, USA), anti-phospho-Y245 ABL (α-p-ABL-Y245), anti-CRKL (α-CRKL), and anti-phosphorylated CRKL (α-p CRKL)(Cell Signaling, Boston, USA).

Soft agar assay

PD-LTC (104 cells) were suspended in 1 mL “top-agar”, 0.25% bacto-agar (DIFCO Laboratories, Detroit, USA) in IMDM and stacked on 0.5% bacto-agar in Dulbecco’s modified Eagle’s medium (DMEM) with 10% fetal calf serum (FCS) in six-well plates. Colonies were counted after incubation for 15 days.

Results

Philadelphia chromosome-positive acute lymphatic leukemia cell lines exhibit a differential response to GNF-2 which correlates with the expression of p185BCR/ABL or p210BCR/ABL

To investigate the selective activity of the allosteric inhibitor GNF-2 on Ph+ ALL, we compared the human patient-derived cell lines Tom-1 and BV-173 expressing p185BCR/ABL and p210BCR/ABL, respectively. Ph Nalm-6 cells were used as negative controls. These cell lines have a nearly identical pre-B lymphatic differentiation level. Cytotoxicity was assessed by the XTT and dye exclusion assays. Here we show that GNF-2 inhibited proliferation of BV-173 and Tom-1 cells with an IC50 of 125 nM and 500 nM, respectively, without affecting the Nalm-6 cells (Figure 1A). The growth of BV-173 and Tom-1 was blocked completely at concentrations of 0.25 μM and 1 μM, respectively, whereas no effect was observed in Nalm-6 cells (Figure 1B and data not shown). The differences in response to GNF-2 were not due to differences in the expression levels of BCR/ABL between the Ph+ cell lines (Figure 1C). In fact, the BV-173 cells expressed a higher level of BCR/ABL with a stronger basic autophosphorylation, as compared to Tom-1, whereas the effect of GNF-2 on autophosphorylation was more pronounced in the BV-173 cells than in the Tom-1 cells. In contrast, the effects of GNF-2 on substrate phosphorylation (CRKL) seemed to be more pronounced in the p185BCR/ABL-positive Tom-1 cells than in the BV-173 cells (Figure 2C). Similar results were obtained with other Ph+-positive ALL cell lines, such as SupB15 (data not shown).

Taken together, these data strongly suggest a different response of Ph+-positive ALL cell lines to GNF-2 treatment in accordance to the expression of either the p185BCR/ABL or p210BCR/ABL fusion protein.

Philadelphia chromosome-positive patient-derived long-term culture cells expressing p210BCR/ABL are more responsive to GNF-2 than those expressing p185BCR/ABL

Ph+ ALL in adults is not fully represented by cell lines. We, therefore, compared the response of PD-LTC from Ph+ ALL patients to GNF-2 in relationship to the cells’ expression of p210BCR/ABL and p185BCR/ABL. The PD-LTC were directly derived from bone marrow cells of Ph+ ALL patients cultured in a specific culture medium.13 We compared the responses from increasing concentrations of PD-LTC of two Ph+ ALL patients expressing p185BCR/ABL (BV and PH) with those of two patients expressing p210BCR/ABL (CM and VB). As negative controls, we used the PD-LTC of a Ph- ALL patient (HP). Cytotoxicity/proliferation was assessed at 72 h by XTT, as described above. GNF-2 inhibited the proliferation of both p210BCR/ABL- and p185BCR/ABL-expressing PD-LTC, but with different IC50 values of 75–100 and 400–1000 nM, respectively, and did not affect the proliferation of cells from the Ph ALL patient (Figure 2A). The PD-LTC were able to form colonies in the semi-solid medium, demonstrating their transformed phenotype (Figure 2B and data not shown). The colony-forming potential of p210BCR/ABL-positive PD-LTC, but not of p185BCR/ABL-positive PD-LTC, was significantly reduced by 250 nM and 500 nM of GNF-2. The differential response was closely related to the variation in inhibition of BCR/ABL kinase activity. GNF-2 only slightly inhibited the autophosphorylation of p185BCR/ABL in cells from the two Ph+ ALL patients expressing p185BCR/ABL (BV and PH), whereas kinase activity was nearly abolished in the p210BCR/ABL-expressing PD-LTC (from patients CM and VB), even at low concentrations. In contrast to the substrate phosphorylation of CRKL, which was only slightly affected in p210BCR/ABL-positive but not in p185BCR/ABL-positive PD-LTC, that of BCR and STAT5 was reduced in both but to a greater extent in p210BCR/ABL -positive PD-LTC (Figure 2C).

In summary, these data show that Ph+ PD-LTC expressing p210BCR/ABL are more sensitive to GNF-2 than are those expressing p185BCR/ABL.

The BCR/ABL fusion proteins mediate differential sensitivity to GNF-2

To examine whether the differential effects of GNF-2 on Ph+ cell lines and PD-LTC are mediated by BCR/ABL and to avoid the bias of yet unknown common or differing features of Ph+ ALL cells, we compared the effect of GNF-2 on factor-dependent Ba/F3 cells, which become factor-independent through the expression of either p185BCR/ABL or p210BCR/ABL. Equal expression levels of p185BCR/ABL and p210BCR/ABL were controlled by western blotting excluding differences in transgene expression (Figure 3A). We exposed p185BCR/ABL- and p210BCR/ABL-expressing Ba/F3 cells to increasing concentrations of GNF-2. Cytotoxicity/proliferation and growth were assessed by XTT and dye exclusion assays. The growth of p185BCR/ABL-expressing cells was reduced to a maximum of 50%, even at 2 μM of GNF-2; p210BCR/ABL-expressing cell growth, on the other hand, was almost abolished at only 250 nM (Figure 3B and C).

The different sensitivity of p185BCR/ABL and p210BCR/ABL in Ba/F3 cells to GNF-2 correlated with a different rate of inhibition of the autophosphorylation. GNF-2 slightly interfered with substrate phosphorylation of CRKL only in p210BCR/ABL -positive Ba/F3 cells (Figure 3D).

In summary, these data show that the differential sensitivity is mediated by the BCR/ABL fusion proteins p185BCR/ABL and p210BCR/ABL.

BCR/ABL resistance mutants mediate differential sensitivity to GNF-2

The major clinical challenge in Ph+ leukemia is drug resistance, which is mainly due to the acquisition by BCR/ABL of point mutations such as the “P-loop” mutations Y253F and E255K or the “gatekeeper” mutation T315I. We, therefore, investigated whether the differential sensitivity to GNF-2 is exhibited also by p185BCR/ABL and p210BCR/ABL harboring the Y253F, E255K or T315I point mutations. To do this we compared the effect of GNF-2 on Ba/F3 cells which became factor-independent through the expression of p185BCR/ABL or p210BCR/ABL resistance mutants. We exposed the cells to increasing concentrations of GNF-2. Cytotoxicity/proliferation and growth were assessed by XTT and dye exclusion assays. For clarity cell counts at day 3 of exposure are represented by bar graphs (Figure 4). We found that the “P-loop” mutants of both p185BCR/ABL and p210BCR/ABL responded to GNF-2 whereas the “gatekeeper” mutant T315I was completely refractory to GNF-2 (Figure 4A-C). p210BCR/ABL P-loop mutants showed a clearly greater sensitivity to GNF-2 than their p185BCR/ABL counterparts. Equal expression levels of p185BCR/ABL and p210BCR/ABL mutants were controlled by western blotting, excluding differences in transgene expression (Figure 4A-C and data not shown). Taken together these data suggest that p210BCR/ABL P-loop resistance mutants are more sensitive to allosteric inhibition by GNF-2 than are those of p185BCR/ABL, whereas the “gatekeeper” mutation T315I confers complete resistance independently of the BCR/ABL fusion protein.

Discussion

Allosteric inhibition is a novel approach for targeting BCR/ABL. The aim of this study was to explore the efficacy and the clinical feasibility of allosteric inhibition in the treatment of Ph+ ALL. We investigated the effects of GNF-2 on both p185BCR/ABL- and p210BCR/ABL-positive ALL models. We found that the allosteric inhibitor GNF-2, at clinically feasible concentrations, effectively suppresses growth of Ph+ ALL cells. In all models the p210BCR/ABL-positive cells were more sensitive to GNF-2 than were the p185BCR/ABL-positive cells.

GNF-2 and its analogs are non-ATP competitive ABL kinase inhibitors, which bind to the myristoyl binding pocket in the kinase domain. It seems that the binding of GNF-2 to this pocket stabilizes the protein in an inhibited conformation,14 resulting in a structural reorganization of ABL that disrupts the catalytic machinery located in the ATP-binding region.14 This is in accordance with our recent findings that the inhibition of oligomerization of BCR/ABL - monomeric BCR/ABL is inactive - increases the effects of GNF-2.15 Thus, one can speculate that the variable sensitivities towards GNF-2 may be attributed to differences in the overall conformations between p185BCR/ABL and p210BCR/ABL due to the differences in the BCR portion of the fusion proteins. These differences seem to be maintained also in resistance mutants, as suggested by the greater sensitivity of the p210BCR/ABL forms as compared to their p185BCR/ABL counterparts. In this case, GNF-2 may have a different affinity for the myristoyl binding pocket. Fusion partner influences on the allosteric inhibition of ABL have been shown for another ABL fusion protein; the TEL/ABL is able to confer factor-independent growth through aberrant ABL-kinase activity but did not respond to GNF-2.11 The reason for the resistance of the T315I forms remains very unclear, even if the homo-oligomerization or the hetero-oligemrization with BCR seems to play a decisive role.15

The different sensitivity of p185BCR/ABL- and p210BCR/ABL-positive Ph+ ALL cells is specific for GNF-2, because no difference was seen between BV-173 and Tom-1 regarding their high sensitivity to imatinib (data not shown). On the other hand the p185BCR/ABL-positive PD-LTC (from patients BV and PH) differ for their response to imatinib but not for that to GNF-2 (15 and data not shown).

The differential response of p185BCR/ABL- and p210BCR/ABL-positive Ph+ ALL cells to allosteric inhibition can also be seen as an expression of functional and biological differences most likely due to qualitative or quantitative differences in the kinase activity between p185BCR/ABL and p210BCR/ABL, as previously shown.8,16,17 BCR/ABL kinase activity is not characterized only by the autophosphorylation, but also by phosphorylation of substrates, such as CRKL, STAT5 and BCR. It seems that GNF-2 is able to dissociate features of the BCR/ABL kinase activity, because it interferes with autophosphorylation but not with the phosphorylation of all substrates to the same extent. These effects may explain why GNF-2 only blocks proliferation but does not induce apoptosis in BCR/ABL-transformed cells.11,15 If this is the case, the higher basic kinase activity of p185BCR/ABL may be responsible for its lower sensitivity to allosteric inhibition as compared to p210BCR/ABL.

Our data presented here not only further establish allosteric inhibition as an alternative molecular therapy approach for the treatment of Ph+ ALL, but also evidence the need for an accurate definition of the breakpoint on der22 in order to optimize treatment. Furthermore there is the need for alternative allosteric inhibitors of the ABL-kinase, which overcome the partial resistance of p185BCR/ABL and the related “P-loop” mutants to allosteric inhibition.

Collectively our data show a difference between p185BCR/ABL and p210BCR/ABL with regard to their sensitivity towards allosteric inhibition, a difference which must be considered when using this novel approach for the treatment of Ph+ ALL.
