Abstract

Graphic abstract

High frequent metastasis is the major cause of breast cancer (BC) mortality among women. However, the molecular mechanisms underlying BC metastasis remain largely unknown. Here, we identified six hub BC metastasis driver genes (BEND5, HSD11B1, NEDD9, SAA2, SH2D2A and TNFSF4) through bioinformatics analysis, among which BEND5 is the most significant gene. Low BEND5 expression predicted advanced stage and shorter overall survival in BC patients. Functional experiments showed that BEND5 could suppress BC growth and metastasis in vitro and in vivo. Mechanistically, BEND5 inhibits Notch signaling via directly interacting with transcription factor RBPJ/CSL. BEN domain of BEND5 interacts with the N-terminal domain (NTD) domain of RBPJ, thus preventing mastermind like transcriptional coactivator (MAML) from forming a transcription activation complex with RBPJ. Our study provides a novel insight into regulatory mechanisms underlying Notch signaling and suggests that BEND5 may become a promising target for BC therapy.
