Title : O GlcNAcylation enhances sensitivity to RSL3 induced ferroptosis via the YAP TFRC pathway in liver cancer


Ferroptosis is a form of regulated cell death characterized by iron-dependent accumulation of lipid hydroperoxide to lethal levels. YAP has been reported to play a pivotal role in controlling ferroptotic death, and the expression of YAP is enhanced and stabilized by O-GlcNAcylation. However, whether O-GlcNAcylation can increase the sensitivity of hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC) cells to ferroptosis remains unknown. In the present study, we found that OGlcNAcylation increased the sensitivity of HCC cells to ferroptosis via YAP. Moreover, YAP increased the iron concentration in HCC cells through transcriptional elevation of TFRC via its O-GlcNAcylation. With YAP knockdown or YAP-T241 mutation, the increased sensitivity to ferroptosis induced by O-GlcNAcylation was abolished. In addition, the xenograft assay confirmed that O-GlcNAcylation increased ferroptosis sensitivity via TFRC in vivo. In summary, we are the first to find that O-GlcNAcylation can increase ferroptosis sensitivity in HCC cells via YAP/TFRC. Our work will provide a new basis for clinical therapeutic strategies for HCC patients.
