Abstract

The human telomerase reverse transcriptase (hTERT) gene encodes an enzyme responsible for maintaining the integrity of chromosomal ends. hTERT plays a key role in cellular immortalization, tumorigenesis and the progression of cancer. Previously, we reported that hTERT repression is required for the induction of cellular senescence. Thus, transcriptional regulation mechanisms of the hTERT gene may be related to the mechanisms of cellular senescence. In the present study, we clarified the molecular mechanism of hTERT repression by protein kinase C (PKC)-δ, one of the cellular senescence-inducing factors. The results showed that a repressor complex composed of NFX1-91, mSin3A and histone deacetylase 1 was involved in the PKC-δ-induced repression of the hTERT promoter, which resulted in the repression of hTERT transcription. These results suggest that targeted recruitment of the NFX1-91 complex to the hTERT promoter is a potential mechanism for repressing hTERT transcription and further inducing cellular senescence.
