Protein phosphatase 2A (PP2A) negatively regulates tumorigenic signaling pathways, in part, by supporting the function of tumor suppressors like p53. The PP2A methylesterase PME-1 limits the activity of PP2A by demethylating its catalytic subunit. Here, we report the finding that PME-1 overexpression correlates with increased cell proliferation and invasive(More)
Protein methylesterase 1 (PME-1) promotes cancerous phenotypes through the demethylation and inactivation of protein phosphatase 2A. We previously demonstrated that PME-1 overexpression promotes Akt, ERK, and may promote Wnt signaling and increases tumor burden in a xenograft model of endometrial cancer. Here, we show that covalent PME-1 inhibitors decrease(More)
Using yeast two-hybrid analysis, we identified several novel protein interactions for the oncoprotein Cancerous Inhibitor of PP2A (CIP2A) and confirmed a subset of these interactions in human cancer cell lines. Analysis of the interaction in prostate carcinoma cells between CIP2A and leucine-rich repeat-containing protein 59 (LRRC59) suggests that CIP2A is(More)
