Abstract

To examine the biochemical pathways by which activated Ha-Ras(G12V) (Ha-RasV12) induces factor-independent growth of myeloid cells, Ha-Ras effector loop mutations, including Y40C, T35S, and E37G, were analysed in a mouse factor-dependent myeloid cell line, WT19. Expression of a single effector loop mutuant, Ha-Ras(G12V, Y40C) (Ha-RasV12C40), inhibited factor-withdrawal apoptosis, suggesting that activation of the phosphatidylinositol 3'-kinase (P13K) pathway is essential to prevent cell death. Neither Ha-Ras (G12V, T35S) (Ha-RasV12S35), which activates the Raf1 signaling pathway, nor Ha-Ras(G12V, E37G) (Ha-RasV12G37), which stimulates the RalGDS pathway, did not have significant effects on factor-withdrawal apoptosis of myeloid cells. Although Ha-RasV12C40 inhibited apoptosis, it did not stimulate entry into the cell cycle. Cell lines containing the combination of Ha-RasV12G37 and Ha-RasV12C40 were capable of factor-independent cell growth, while expression of the other combinations of the Ha-Ras effector mutants were not. The combined expression of Bcl-2 and Ha-RasV12G37 was not sufficient to stimulate factor independent growth, suggesting that Ha-RasV12C40 activates additional signals, besides blocking apoptosis, which are critical for factor-independent growth of myeloid cells. In factor-starved myeloid cells, inducible expression of Ha-RasV12G37 results in decreased level of p27(Kip1) protein, a cyclin-dependent kinase inhibitor (CKI). These data suggest that the factor-independent growth of myeloid cells requires the activation of at least two pathways, one inhibiting factor-withdrawal apoptosis, and another causing cell cycle progression.
