Abstract

Human GLTP on chromosome 12 (locus 12q24.11) encodes a 24 kD amphitropic lipid transfer protein (GLTP) that mediates glycosphingolipid (GSL) intermembrane trafficking and regulates GSL homeostatic levels within cells. Herein, we provide evidence that GLTP overexpression inhibits the growth of human colon carcinoma cells (HT-29; HCT-116), but spares normal colonic cells (CCD-18Co). Mechanistic studies reveal that GLTP overexpression arrested the cell cycle at the G1/S checkpoint via upregulation of cyclin-dependent kinase inhibitor-1B (Kip1/p27) and cyclin-dependent kinase inhibitor 1A (Cip1/p21) at the protein and mRNA levels, and downregulation of cyclin-dependent kinase-2 (CDK2), cyclin-dependent kinase-4 (CDK4), cyclin E and cyclin D1 protein levels. Assessment of the biological fate of HCT-116 cells overexpressing GLTP indicated no increase in cell death suggesting induction of quiescence. However, HT-29 cells overexpressing GLTP underwent cell death by necroptosis as revealed by phosphorylation of human mixed lineage kinase domain-like protein (pMLKL) via receptor-interacting protein kinase-3 (RIPK-3), elevated cytosolic calcium, and plasma membrane permeabilization by pMLKL oligomerization. Overexpression of W96A-GLTP, an ablated GSL binding site mutant, failed to arrest the cell cycle or induce necroptosis. Sphingolipid assessment (ceramide, monohexosylceramide, sphingomyelin, ceramide-1-phosphate, sphingosine, and sphingosine-1-phosphate) of HT-29 cells overexpressing GLTP revealed large decreases (>5-fold) in sphingosine-1-phosphate with minimal change in 16:0-ceramide, tipping the ‘sphingolipid rheostat’ (S1P/16:0-Cer ratio) towards cell death. Depletion of RIPK-3 or MLKL abrogated necroptosis induced by GLTP overexpression. Our findings establish GLTP upregulation as a previously unknown suppressor of human colon carcinoma HT-29 cells via interference with cell cycle progression and induction of necroptosis.
