OBJECTIVES:: There is a clear need for better therapeutics and diagnostics for pancreatic cancer. We aimed to discover plasma membrane-associated proteins overexpressed in pancreatic cancer using quantitative proteomics and apply RNA interference (RNAi) to uncover proteins associated with cancer cell survival. METHODS:: Cell surface glycoproteins from 5 pancreatic cancer cell lines were isolated, and differential analyses were performed using mass spectrometry and the "normoid" cell line Hs766T as the comparator. For validation, immunohistochemistry was performed on tissues from 10 independent patients and 2 normal donors. Correlation of protein and mRNA expression level was determined, and functional activity characterized using RNAi. RESULTS:: Integrin β6, CD46, tissue factor, and a novel protein, chromosome 14 open reading frame 1, were identified as overexpressed on pancreatic cancer cell lines. Immunohistochemistry demonstrated the 4 targets were overexpressed in 20% to 70% of primary pancreatic tumor specimens. Small interfering RNA knockdown resulted in a reduction of cellular proliferation by inhibiting DNA synthesis, blocking S-phase progression or induction of apoptosis. CONCLUSIONS:: By combining a mass spectrometry identification platform and an RNAi validation platform, we have identified a panel of cell surface glycoproteins that not only are overexpressed, but also play a functional role in pancreatic tumor cell survival.
