TI  - MUC1-C integrates PD-L1 induction with repression of immune effectors in
      non-small-cell lung cancer.

AB  - Immunotherapeutic approaches, particularly programmed death 1/programmed death
      ligand 1 (PD-1/PD-L1) blockade, have improved the treatment of non-small-cell
      lung cancer (NSCLC), supporting the premise that evasion of immune destruction is
      of importance for NSCLC progression. However, the signals responsible for
      upregulation of PD-L1 in NSCLC cells and whether they are integrated with the
      regulation of other immune-related genes are not known. Mucin 1 (MUC1) is
      aberrantly overexpressed in NSCLC, activates the nuclear factor-kappaB
      (NF-kappaB) p65-->ZEB1 pathway and confers a poor prognosis. The present studies 
      demonstrate that MUC1-C activates PD-L1 expression in NSCLC cells. We show that
      MUC1-C increases NF-kappaB p65 occupancy on the CD274/PD-L1 promoter and thereby 
      drives CD274 transcription. Moreover, we demonstrate that MUC1-C-induced
      activation of NF-kappaB-->ZEB1 signaling represses the TLR9 (toll-like receptor
      9), IFNG, MCP-1 (monocyte chemoattractant protein-1) and GM-CSF genes, and that
      this signature is associated with decreases in overall survival. In concert with 
      these results, targeting MUC1-C in NSCLC tumors suppresses PD-L1 and induces
      these effectors of innate and adaptive immunity. These findings support a
      previously unrecognized central role for MUC1-C in integrating PD-L1 activation
      with suppression of immune effectors and poor clinical outcome.
