Although family with sequence similarity 188 member B (FAM188B) is known to be a member of a novel putative deubiquitinase family, its biological role has not been fully elucidated. Here, we demonstrate the oncogenic function of FAM188B via regulation of forkhead box M1 (FOXM1), another oncogenic transcription factor, in lung cancer cells. FAM188B knockdown induced the inhibition of cell growth along with the downregulation of mRNA and protein levels of FOXM1. FAM188B knockdown also resulted in downregulation of Survivin and cell cycle-related proteins, which are direct targets of FOXM1. Interestingly, FOXM1 co-immunoprecipitated with FAM188B, and the levels of FOXM1 ubiquitination increased with FAM188B knockdown but decreased with FAM188B overexpression. In addition, in vivo xenograft of FAM188B siRNA (siFAM188B) RNA-treated cells resulted in the retardation of tumor growth compared with that in the control. Furthermore, protein levels of FAM188B and FOXM1 were elevated in the human lung cancer tissues, and FAM188B expression was negatively correlated with the overall survival of lung cancer patients. These results indicate that FAM188B exerts its oncogenic effects by regulating FOXM1 deubiquitination and thus its stability. Therefore, FAM188B might be a potential therapeutic target to control lung cancer progression.
