Abstract 

Transcriptional factor 4 (TCF4), encoding a basic helix-loop-helix transcriptional factor, has recently been demonstrated as a causative gene for Pitt-Hopkins syndrome, a neurodevelopmental disease. Examination of gastric cancers using the restriction landmark genomic scanning technique revealed methylation at a NotI enzyme site in TCF4 intron 8 and further identified CpG dinucleotide hypermethylation in TCF4 exon 1, strongly associated with gene silencing in gastric cancer cell lines. Treatment with 5-aza-2′-deoxycytidine and/or trichostatin A restored TCF4 expression in TCF4-silenced gastric cancer cell lines. Real-time reverse transcription-polymerase chain reaction analysis of 77 paired primary gastric tumor samples revealed that 38% of analyzed tumors had a >2-fold decrease in TCF4 expression compared with adjacent normal-appearing tissue, and the decrease significantly correlated with increased CpG methylation in TCF4 exon 1. Clinicopathologic data showed that decreased TCF4 expression occurred significantly more frequently in intestinal-type (22/37, 59%) than in diffuse-type (7/37, 19%) gastric cancers (P = 0.0004) and likewise more frequently in early (12/18, 67%) than in advanced (17/59, 29%) gastric cancers (P = 0.004). CpG methylation markedly increased with patient age among normal-appearing tissues, suggesting that CpG methylation in gastric mucosa may be one of the earliest events in carcinogenesis of intestinal-type gastric cancers. Furthermore, ectopic expression of TCF4 decreased cell growth in a gastric cancer cell line, and the knock down of TCF4 using small interfering RNA increased cell migration. Based on these results, we propose that the observed frequent epigenetic-mediated TCF4 silencing plays a role in tumor formation and progression.
