Title SSATX, an alternative splicing of sat1, functions as a tumor suppressor in human melanoma cells through RNA-SEQ analysis via regulating Wnt signaling
Data Types Transcriptome or Gene expression
Organisms Homo sapiens
Description Human sat1 gene produces two transcript varients, one translates Spermidine/spermine N-1 acetyltransferase (SSAT1), the rate limiting enzyme in the catabolism of polyamines; the other is SSATX, however, its biological functions remain largely unknown. We found that SSATX knockdown remarkably promoted the proliferation, migration and invasion of human melanoma cells. To gain insights into the mechanism of SSATX-mediated tumor cell proliferation, migration and invasion, we performed RNA-seq analysis of A2058-scramble and A2058-shSSATX cells. Our results revealed that repression of SSATX activated Wnt signaling pathways.
