Mutations in the growth hormone receptor (GHR) gene can cause disruption of the growth hormone signaling pathway, resulting in growth deficiency due to growth hormone (GH) resistance. Both recessive and apparently dominant mutations have been described in the literature. In order to shed some light on the molecular mechanism of partial growth hormone resistance caused by heterozygous mutations we performed an in-depth in silico analysis of a mutation found in a girl with a previous diagnosis of idiopathic short stature...

Fibrosis is known as a frequent and irreversible pathological condition which is associated with organ failure. Tissue fibrosis is a central process in a variety of chronic progressive diseases such as diabetes, hypertension, and persistent inflammation. This state could contribute to chronic injury and the initiation of tissue repair. Fibrotic disorders represent abnormal wound healing with defective matrix turnover and clearance that lead to excessive accumulation of extracellular matrix components. A variety of identified growth factors, cytokines, and persistently activated myofibroblasts have critical roles in the pathogenesis of fibrosis...

Dysregulated long noncoding RNAs (lncRNAs) and microRNAs (miRNAs) play key roles in the development of human cancers. The lncRNA growth arrest-specific 5 (GAS5) is reported to be a tumor suppressor in multiple cancers. However, the roles of GAS5 and its related miRNAs in osteosarcoma are poorly understood. This study explored the potential functions and mechanisms of GAS5 in the tumorigenesis of osteosarcoma. Here, the expression of GAS5, miR-221 and aplasia Ras homologue member I (ARHI) was determined in osteosarcoma tissues and cells by Real-time PCR (RT-qPCR)...

ROR is one of large intergenic non-coding RNAs (lincRNAs) and acts as a strong negative regulator of p53 and a sponge for miR-145 to regulate diverse cancer progression. However, the interaction of ROR, p53 and miR-145 in lung cancer and its correlation with lung cancer stem cell (LCSC) signatures were not fully understood. Here, qRT-PCR analysis revealed that p53 and ROR were upregulated while miR-145 was downregulated in non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC) tissues and LCSCs compared to their paired adjacent normal tissues and lung cancer cells (LCCs)...

Stimulation of glucose transport is an important determinant of myocardial susceptibility to ischemia and reperfusion. Stimulation of glucose transport is markedly impaired in cardiomyocytes exposed to free fatty acids (FFA). Deactivation of the Focal Adhesion Kinase (FAK) by FFA contributes to glucose transport impairment, and could be corrected by chronic treatment with the phorbol ester TPA. However, TPA must have effects in addition to FAK reactivation to restore stimulated glucose transport. Chronic treatment with TPA improved basal and stimulated glucose transport in FFA-exposed, but not in control cardiomyocytes...

During the early stages of atherosclerosis, monocytes bind and migrate into the endothelial layer, promoting inflammation within the aorta. In order to prevent the development of atherosclerosis, it is critical to inhibit such inflammation. The therapeutic effects of ginger have been investigated in several models of cardiovascular disease. However, although a number of previous studies have focused on specific compounds, the mechanisms of action responsible remain unclear. Here, we investigated five major compounds present in ginger, and observed that gingerenone A exhibited the strongest inhibitory effects against tumor necrosis factor (TNF)- α and lipopolysaccharide (LPS) induced monocyte-endothelial adhesion...

Breast cancer is the most commonly diagnosed cancer in women. The PI3K/AKT/ mTOR pathway is among the most frequently dysregulated pathways in patients with breast cancer. The activation of this pathway is associated with increased cell growth and clinical outcome, and its overexpression is associated with a poor prognosis. It has been proposed that it may be of importance as a potential therapeutic target in the treatment of breast cancer. The aim of current review is to provide an overview of the potential utility of PI3K/Akt/mTOR inhibitors in patients with breast cancer, with particular emphasis on recent preclinical and clinical studies...

Mesenchymal stem cells (MSCs) reside in a specific niche in the bone marrow however biological features of this niche are still not fully understood. Given the interactions of MSCs with endothelial cells in different tissues, bone marrow MSC niche may influence the biological features of endothelial progenitor cells (EPCs). To understand the role of the sympathetic nervous system in regulation of the MSC niche, we examined whether the manipulation of the MSC niche via β3-adrenergic signals will affect EPC features...

Reactive oxygen species (ROS) play both deleterious and beneficial roles in cancer cells. Nucleophosmin (NPM) is heavily implicated in cancers of diverse origins, being its gene over-expression in solid tumors or frequent mutations in hematological malignancies. However, the role and regulatory mechanism of NPM in oxidative stress are unclear. Here, we found that NPM regulated the expression of peroxiredoxin 6 (PRDX6), a member of thiol-specific antioxidant protein family, consequently affected the level and distribution of ROS...

Matrix metalloproteinases (MMPs) plays a critical role in the degradation of extracellular matrix (ECM). Sorting nexin (SNX) 10 is a member of the SNX family, which functions in regulation of endosomal sorting and osteoclast activation, has been implicated to play an important role in the bone erosion of rheumatoid arthritis. In this study, we aimed to investigate the possible role of SNX10 on MMP9 secretion and the potential mechanism. By immunostaining and co-immunoprecipitation, we found that SNX10 was extensively co-localized with MMP9, indicating that SNX10 might participate in MMP9 trafficking...

Amyloid-β protein (Aβ) is the main component of senile plaques in the brains of Alzheimer disease (AD) patients. Aβ is proteolytically derived from amyloid-β precursor protein by β- and γ-secretases. Secreted Aβ is then eliminated from the central nervous system by multiple clearance mechanisms, including phagocytosis, immune responses, and proteolytic degradation. These dynamic metabolic processes, which are referred to as Aβ economy, regulate steady-state brain Aβ levels. Familial AD-linked genetic mutations augment the production and aggregation of Aβ...
