EDAG is a hematopoietic tissue-specific transcription regulator that plays a key role in maintaining the homeostasis of hematopoietic lineage commitment. In AML patients, the high expression level of EDAG is associated with poor prognosis. NPM1 (Nucleophosmin or B23), a ubiquitous nucleolar phosphoprotein, has been proved to be a multifunctional protein that is involved in several cellular processes, including ribosome biogenesis, centrosome duplication, cell cycle progression, cell growth, and transformation. Various studies have implicated NPM1 overexpression in promoting tumor cell proliferation, blocking differentiation of leukemia cells and resisting apoptosis. In the present study, using co-immunoprecipitation, we characterized EDAG as a physiological binding partner of NPM1; The N-terminal (1-124aa) region of EDAG interacts with the N-terminal (118-187aa) of NPM1. Under CHX treatment, the stability of NPM1 protein was enhanced by EDAG overexpression, while knockdown of EDAG by lentivirus-mediated siRNA resulted in an increased degradation rate of NPM1 in K562 cells. During PMA-induced K562 megakaryocytic differentiation, overexpression of EDAG prevented the down-regulation of NPM1 proteins, while knockdown of EDAG accelerated the down-regulation of NPM1. EDAG deletion mutant lacking the binding domain with NPM1 lost the ability to stabilize NPM1 protein. Furthermore, knockdown of EDAG in K562 cells led to increased cell apoptosis induced by imatinib, and re-expression of NPM1 attenuated the increased apoptosis. These results suggest that EDAG enhances the protein stability of NPM1 through binding to NPM1, which plays a critical role in the anti-apoptosis of leukemia cells.
