Abstract

Previously, we have shown that downregulation of POLD4 in lung cancer cells delays progression through the G1-S cell cycle transition and leads to increased genomic instability. To date however, detailed molecular mechanisms have not been elucidated to explain how this occurs. In the present study, we found that reduction in POLD4 by siRNA knockdown promoted downregulation of both p-Akt Ser473 and Skp2 as well as upregulation of p27. Furthermore, these protein expression levels were rescued when siRNA-resistant POLD4 was ectopically expressed in the knockdown cells. These data suggest that the POLD4 downregulation is associated with impaired Akt-Skp2-p27 pathway in lung cancer.
