What is PIM1 protein?

PIM1 (Pim-1 proto-oncogene, serine/threonine kinase) gene is a protein coding gene which situated on the short arm of chromosome 6 at locus 6p21. PIM1 belongs to the Ser/Thr protein kinase family, and PIM subfamily. This protein is expressed primarily in B-lymphoid and myeloid cell lines, and is overexpressed in hematopoietic malignancies and in prostate cancer. Both the human and orthologous mouse genes have been reported to encode two isoforms (with preferential cellular localization) resulting from the use of alternative in-frame translation initiation codons, the upstream non-AUG (CUG) and downstream AUG codons. The PIM1 protein is consisted of 313 amino acids and its molecular mass is approximately 35.7 kDa.

What is the function of PIM1 protein?

PIM1 is a proto-oncogene with serine/threonine kinase activity involved in cell survival and cell proliferation and thus providing a selective advantage in tumorigenesis. It regulates a variety of cellular processes such as cell proliferation, survival, and differentiation. Pim-1 phosphorylates and regulates multiple substrate proteins, including transcription factors, cyclins, and other kinases and signaling molecules. In addition, Pim-1 is also involved in physiological and pathological processes such as tumor development, immune regulation, and cardiovascular disease.

PIM1 Related Signaling Pathway

PIM1 performs its function by phosphorylating a variety of substrates, such as transcription factors, cell cycle regulatory proteins, and apoptosis-related proteins. The role of Pim-1 in cell signal transduction is mainly reflected in the following aspects: promoting cell cycle process, inhibiting cell apoptosis, regulating metabolism and influencing cell differentiation. In addition, Pim-1 also interacts with signaling pathways related to tumorigenesis and development, including PI3K/AKT, MAPK, mTOR, etc., thus playing an important role in cancer.

PIM1 Related Diseases

PIM1 is associated with a variety of diseases, especially in the field of cancer. Overexpression or enhanced activity of Pim-1 has been observed in many types of cancer, including prostate, breast, lung, and lymphoma. In addition, PIM1's role in cell survival and metabolic regulation also suggests that it may be associated with other diseases, such as cardiovascular disease and certain metabolic diseases.

Bioapplications of PIM1

Although clinical drugs that directly target PIM1 are not yet fully approved, several Pim inhibitors have entered clinical trials to evaluate their potential in the treatment of blood cancers and solid tumors. These inhibitors are typically multikinase inhibitors that simultaneously target members of the Pim family as well as other related signaling pathways.

Case study 1: Ashley Y Gao, 2022

Cellular senescence is emerging as a driver of idiopathic pulmonary fibrosis (IPF), a progressive and fatal disease with limited effective therapies. The senescence-associated secretory phenotype (SASP), involving the release of inflammatory cytokines and profibrotic growth factors by senescent cells, is thought to be a product of multiple cell types in IPF, including lung fibroblasts. The purpose of this study was to assess the role of Pim-1 kinase as a driver of NF-κB-induced production of inflammatory cytokines from low-passage IPF fibroblast cultures displaying markers of senescence.

The results demonstrate that Pim-1 kinase phosphorylates p65/RelA, activating NF-κB activity and enhancing IL-6 production, which in turn amplifies the expression of PIM1, generating a positive feedback loop. In addition, targeting Pim-1 kinase with a small molecule inhibitor dramatically inhibited the expression of a broad array of cytokines and chemokines in IPF-derived fibroblasts. These findings highlight the therapeutic potential of targeting Pim-1 kinase to reprogram the secretome of senescent fibroblasts and halt IPF progression.

Case study 2: Yangyang Yuan, 2022

Protein kinase-mediated phosphorylation plays a critical role in many biological processes. However, the identification of key regulatory kinases is still a great challenge. Here, the researchers develop a trans-omics-based method, central kinase inference, to predict potentially key kinases by integrating quantitative transcriptomic and phosphoproteomic data. Using known kinases associated with anti-cancer drug resistance, the accuracy of our method denoted by the area under the curve is 5.2% to 29.5% higher than Kinase-Substrate Enrichment Analysis.

Further experiments reveal that a serine/threonine kinase, PIM1, promotes hepatic conversion and protects human dermal fibroblasts from reprogramming-induced ferroptosis and cell cycle arrest. This study not only reveals new regulatory kinases, but also provides a helpful method that might be extended to predict central kinases involved in other biological processes.
