The aim of the present study was to investigate the potential role of HIF-2a in regulating RCC susceptibility to natural killer (NK) cell-mediated killing. We demonstrated that the RCC cell line 786-O with mutated VHL was resistant to NK-mediated lysis as compared to the VHL corrected cell line (WT7). This resistance was independent of immunological synapse formation and NK ligand expression but was found to be reliant on HIF-2a stabilization in 786-0 cells. In order to elucidate the molecular basis of HIF-2a-induced impairment of NK-mediated killing, we performed global gene analysis using DNA microarray. Three candidate genes (ANGPTL4, ADM and ITPR1) were selected on the basis of their fold change and their involvement in cell death and survival. SiRNA targeting of these genes revealed that only ITPR1 silencing resulted in a significant increase of 786-O susceptibility to NK-mediated lysis. Using gene silencing of HIF2-a and chromatin immunoprecipitation assay, we showed for the first time that ITPR1 was a direct novel target of HIF2-a. Notably, a strong and significant correlation was found between ITPR1and HIF2-a staining in RCC patients. Transcriptional profiling of ITPR1silenced RCC cells indicated that several important genes involved in cell survival and apoptosis were differentially regulated. Using ITPR1 silenced Renca cells, we further found that ITPR1 was involved in the control of tumor progression. Moreover ITPR1 targeting combined with NK depletion significantly enhanced tumor growth as compared to ITPR1 knocked down Renca xenografts. Our data provide insights into the link between HIF-2a, ITPR1-related pathway and natural immunity and suggest a role of the HIF2/ITPR1 axis in regulating RCC cell survival.
