- The proviral integration site for Moloney murine leukemia virus (PIM) family of serine/threonine-specific kinases consist of three isoforms, that regulate proliferation, apoptosis, metabolism, invasion, and metastasis of cancer cells. Among these, abnormally elevated kinase activity of PIM-1 contributes to the progression of gastric cancer and predicts poor prognosis and a low survival rate in gastric cancer patients. In the present study, we found that resveratrol, one of the representative chemopreventive and anticarcinogenic phytochemicals, directly binds to PIM-1 and thereby inhibits its catalytic activity in human gastric cancer SNU-601 cells. This resulted in suppression of phosphorylation of the proapoptotic Bad, a known substrate of PIM-1. Resveratrol, by inactivating PIM-1, also inhibited anchorage-independent growth and proliferation of SNU-601 cells. To understand the molecular interaction between resveratrol and PIM-1, we conducted docking simulation and found that resveratrol directly binds to the PIM-1 at the ATP-binding pocket. In conclusion, the proapototic and anti-proliferative effects of resveratrol in gastric cancer cells are likely to be mediated through suppression of PIM-1 kinase activity, which may represent a novel mechanism underlying its chemopreventive and anticarcinogenic actions.
