Genome-wide CNV study and functional evaluation identified CTDSPL as tumour suppressor gene for cervical cancer
We have investigated copy number variations (CNVs) in relation to cervical cancer by analyzing 731,422 single-nucleotide polymorphisms (SNPs) in 1,034 cervical cancer cases and 3,948 controls, followed by replication in 1,396 cases and 1,057 controls. We found that a 6367bp deletion in intron 1 of the CTD small phosphatase like gene (CTDSPL) was associated with 2.54-fold increased risk of cervical cancer (odds ratio =2.54, 95% confidence interval =2.08-3.12, P=2.0x10-19). This CNV is one of the strongest genetic risk variants identified so far for cervical cancer. The deletion removes the binding sites of zinc finger protein 263, binding protein 2 and interferon regulatory factor 1, and hence downregulates the transcription of CTDSPL. HeLa cells expressing CTDSPL showed a significant decrease in colony-forming ability. Compared with control groups, mice injected with HeLa cells expressing CTDSPL exhibited a significant reduction in tumour volume. Furthermore, CTDSPL-depleted immortalized End1/E6E7 could form tumours in NOD-SCID mice.
