AbstractAltered lipid metabolism and aberrant protein translation are strongly associated with cancerous outgrowth; however, the inter-regulation of these key processes is still underexplored in diffuse large B-cell lymphoma (DLBCL). Although fatty acid synthase (FASN) activity is reported to positively correlate with PI3K-Akt-mTOR pathway that can modulate protein synthesis, the precise impact of FASN inhibition on this process is still unknown. Herein, we demonstrate that attenuating FASN expression or its activity significantly reduces eIF4B (eukaryotic initiation factor 4B) levels and consequently overall protein translation. Through biochemical studies, we identified eIF4B as a bonafide substrate of USP11, which stabilizes and enhances eIF4B activity. Employing both pharmacological and genetic approaches, we establish that FASN-induced PI3K-S6Kinase signaling phosphorylates USP11 enhancing its interaction with eIF4B and thereby promoting oncogenic translation.
