Elevated expression of heat shock protein 5 (HSPA5) promotes drug resistance and metastasis and is a marker of poor prognosis in breast cancer patients. Adenovirus type 5 E1A gene therapy has demonstrated antitumor efficacy but the mechanisms of metastasis-inhibition are unclear. Here, we report that E1A interacts with p300 histone acetyltransferase (HAT) and blocks p300-mediated HSPA5 acetylation at K353, which in turn promotes HSPA5 ubiquitination by GP78 (E3 ubiquitin ligase) and subsequent proteasome-mediated degradation. Our findings point out the Ying-Yang regulation of two different post-translational modifications (ubiquitination and acetylation) of HSPA5 in tumor metastasis.
