Retinoic acid (RA) plays a role in cancer therapy. However, its long-term treatment is hindered by the acquired resistance which is not fully understood. Our previous study indicated that the transcriptional activity of RA receptor (RAR) is enhanced by association of MED25 with CREB-binding protein (CBP) through the PTOV domain, which is also present in prostate tumor over-expressed protein 1 (PTOV1). Here, we show that MED25 and PTOV1 reciprocally regulate RAR transcriptional activity through competitive bindings to CBP and opposite regulation of CBP recruitment to the RA-responsive gene promoter. Finally, we demonstrate that MED25 and PTOV1 differentially modulate RA sensitivity in cancer cells depending on their expression levels, suggesting a potential molecular mechanism underlying RA resistance which frequently emerges during cancer treatments.
