Graphical Abstract:


RNA binding proteins (RBPs) associate with nascent and mature RNAs to perform biological functions such as alternative splicing and RNA stability. Having unique RNA recognition binding motifs, RBPs form complexes with RNA in a sequence- and structure-based manner. Aberrant expressions of several RBPs have been identified in tumorigenesis and cancer progression. These uncontrolled RBPs affect several mechanisms, including cell proliferation, tumor growth, invasion, metastasis and chemoresistance. Epithelial splicing regulatory protein 1 (ESRP1) is a member of the hnRNP family of proteins that play a crucial role in regulating numerous cellular processes, including alternative splicing and translation of multiple genes during organogenesis. Abnormal expression of ESRP1 alters the cell morphology, and leads to cell proliferation and tumor growth during cancer progression. ESRP1 mediated alternative splicing of target genes, including CD44, FGFR, PTBP1, LYN, ENAH, SPAG1 and ZMYND8, results in cancer progression. In addition, ESRP1 also regulates circularization and biogenesis of circular RNAs such as circUHRF1, circNOL10 and circANKS1B, whose expressions have been identified as key factors in various cancers. This multi-functional protein is also involved in imposing stability of target mRNAs such as cyclin A2, and thereby cell cycle regulation. The scope of this review is to examine recent scientific data, outcomes of the up- and down-regulated proteins, and the role of ESRP1 in various cancers. We conclude by summarizing ESRP1 dysregulation and its consequences on target genes in various human cancers. Collectively, the consequences of ESRP1 mediated splicing in cancer cells suggest the role of ESRP1 in cell proliferation and chemoresistance via apoptosis and autophagy modulation, which could, therefore, be potential targets for cancer therapeutics.

Keywords: ESRP1, alternative splicing, EMT, cancer progression, chemoresistance, RNA binding proteins (RBPs).
