Title: Silencing of ATPase family AAA domain-containing protein 2 inhibits migration and invasion of colorectal cancer cells

Abstract: Colorectal cancer is one of the most common malignant tumors with a high rate of distant metastasis, postoperative recurrence and mortality. ATPase family AAA domain-containing protein 2 (ATAD2), a member of ATPase family, is highly expressed in various cancers, including colorectal cancer. However, whether ATAD2 plays a role in the migration and invasion of colorectal cancer cells remains unknown. In this study, we established ATAD2 knockdown in colorectal cancer cell lines by RNA interference and found that silencing of ATAD2 inhibited the migration and invasion ability of Caco-2 and SW-480 cells. Moreover, ATAD2 silencing suppressed epithelial-mesenchymal transition (EMT), and reduced the expression and enzymatic activity of matrix metalloproteinases (MMPs) in Caco-2 and SW-480 cells. In summary, our results suggest that silencing of ATAD2 inhibits migration and invasion of colorectal cancer cells by suppressing EMT and decreasing the activity of MMPs. Hence, ATAD2 could be considered as a novel molecular marker of metastatic colorectal cancer, and it may provide new insights for clinical diagnosis and treatment of colorectal cancer.
