The human homolog of the Drosophila prune protein (from PRUNE, which encodes h-prune), which interacts with glycogen synthase kinase 3, promotes cellular motility. H-prune also interacts with nm23-H1, a suppressor of cancer metastasis. It has been reported that stimulation of cellular motility by h-prune is enhanced by its interaction with nm23-H1 in breast cancer cells. In the present study, we examined the expression of h-prune and nm23-H1 during tumor progression in gastric cancer (GC). PRUNE mRNA was overexpressed in 12 (32%) of 38 GC cases by quantitative reverse transcription-polymerase chain reaction. PRUNE mRNA levels correlated significantly with advanced T grade, N grade and tumor stage. Immunohistochemical analysis revealed that 43 (30%) of 143 GC cases were positive for h-prune, and h-prune-positive GC cases showed more advanced T grade, N grade and tumor stage than h-prune-negative GC cases. One hundred and twenty-four (87%) of 143 GC cases were positive for nm23-H1, and nm23-H1 was expressed in almost all (42 cases, 98%) h-prune-positive GC cases. Many GC cases positive for both h-prune and nm23-H1 showed more advanced T grade, N grade and tumor stage than other type GC cases. Patients with h-prune-positive GC had a significantly worse survival rate than patients with h-prune-negative GC. These findings indicate that overexpression of h-prune is associated with tumor progression and aggressiveness of GC. nm23-H1 may enhance motility of cancer cells by interacting with h-prune.
