Cathelicidin antimicrobial peptide is a key component of the host innate immune system. It is constitutively expressed by the intestinal epithelial cells, but induced at further higher levels by different host-derived and microbial stimuli, including the ligands for Toll-like receptors (TLRs). While the underlying mechanisms of cathelicidin expression remain incompletely understood, altered expression may be associated with gastro-intestinal infections and inflammatory diseases. We demonstrate here that viral double-stranded RNA and its synthetic analog poly(I:C) are potent and tissue-specific inducers of cathelicidin mRNA and protein expression in the mouse as well as human intestinal epithelial cells...

In postconfluent human pulmonary microvascular endothelial cell (HPMEC)s, NEU1 sialidase associates with and desialylates the src family kinase (SFK) substrate, CD31, and disrupts angiogenesis. We asked whether the NEU1-CD31 interaction might be SFK-driven. We found that normalized phospho-SFK (PY416) signal is increased in postconfluent HPMECs compared to subconfluent cells and prior SFK inhibition with PP2 or SU6656 completely blocked NEU1 association with and desialylation of CD31. Prior silencing of each of the four SFKs expressed in HPMECs, as well as CD31, dramatically reduced confluence-induced SFK activation...

Melanoma is the deadliest skin cancer. RACK1 (Receptor for activated protein kinase C) protein was proposed as a biological marker of melanoma in human and domestic animal species harboring spontaneous melanomas. As a scaffold protein, RACK1 is able to coordinate the interaction of key signaling molecules implicated in both physiological cellular functions and tumorigenesis. A role for RACK1 in rewiring ERK and JNK signaling pathways in melanoma cell lines had been proposed. Here, we used a genetic approach to test this hypothesis in vivo in the mouse...

Pancreatic β-cells often face endoplasmic reticulum stress and/or ROS-associated oxidative stress under adverse conditions. Our previous work has verified that NR4A1 protects pancreatic β-cells from ER-stress induced apoptosis. However, It remains unknown whether NR4A1 is able to protect pancreatic β-cells against ROS-associated oxidative stress. In the present study, our data showed that NR4A1 protein expression rapidly increased in MIN6 cells upon H2O2 treatment, and overexpression of NR4A1 in MIN6 cells conferred resistance to cell apoptosis induced by H2O2...

Several studies have shown that protectins, which are ω-3 fatty acid-derived proresolution mediators, may improve insulin resistance. Recently, protectin DX (PDX) was documented to attenuate insulin resistance by stimulating IL-6 expression in skeletal muscle, thereby regulating hepatic gluconeogenesis. These findings made us investigate the direct effects of PDX on hepatic glucose metabolism in the context of diabetes. In the current study, we show that PDX regulates hepatic gluconeogenesis in a manner distinct from its indirect glucoregulatory activity via IL-6...

Approximately 70% cases of breast cancers exhibit high expression and activity levels of estrogen receptor alpha (ERα), a transcription regulator that induces the expression of genes associated with cellular proliferation and survival. These nuclear functions of the receptor are associated with the development of breast cancer. However, ERα localization is not static, but rather, dynamic with continuous shuttling between the nucleus and the cytoplasm. Interestingly, both the nuclear import and export of ERα are modulated by several stimuli that include estradiol, antiestrogens, and growth factors...

Migration and invasion of cancer cells into surrounding tissue and vasculature is an important initial step in cancer metastasis. Metastasis is the leading cause of cancer related death and thus it is crucial that we improve our understanding of the mechanisms that promote this life-threatening phenomenon. Cell migration involves a complex, multistep process that leads to the actin-driven movement of cells on or through the tissues of the body. The multifunctional scaffolding protein RACK1 plays important roles in nucleating cell signalling hubs, anchoring proteins at specific subcellular locations and regulating protein activity...

Endometrial cancer is the most common, and second most lethal, gynecological malignancy, and its rates of incidence and death are growing. This is likely attributable to increased numbers of high-risk type II endometrial cancers which account for ~30% of cases but ~75% of deaths due to their aggressive and metastatic behaviour. Histopathological and in vitro functional studies suggest that aberrant TGFβ1 signaling may contribute to endometrial cancer development and the acquisition of invasive/metastatic characteristics...

Whereas TNF-α can facilitate the metastasis of oral squamous cancer cells (OSCC), whether it inhibits the metastasis is not clear so far. In this study, we demonstrated that high dose TNF-α at 100ng/mL could in vitro significantly inhibit the migration of two OSCC cell lines, CAL-27 and SCC-25. To explore the related mechanisms, we focused on the involvement of the microRNAs and found that TNF-α increased the expression of miR-765. The upregulation of miR-765 was attributed to the inhibition of the migration...

The small molecular weight GTPase Rab7 is a key regulator for late endosomal/lysosomal membrane trafficking, it was known that Rab7 is phosphorylated, but the corresponding kinase and the functional regulation of Rab7 phosphorylation remain unclear. We provide evidence here that Rab7 is a substrate of Src kinase, and is tyrosine-phosphorylated by Src, withY183 residue of Rab7 being the optimal phosphorylation site for Src. Further investigations demonstrated that the tyrosine phosphorylation of Rab7 depends on the guanine nucleotide binding activity of Rab7 and the activity of Src kinase...

For myotube formation, proliferation and differentiation of myoblasts must be tightly regulated by various myogenic regulatory factors (MRFs) such as MyoD, myogenic factor 5 (Myf5), myogenin, and muscle-specific regulatory factor 4 (MRF4). However, it is not clear how the expression or activity of these MRFs is controlled during myogenesis. In this study, we identified ubiquitin-specific protease 4 (USP4), one of deubiquitinating enzymes, as a suppressor of MRFs by demonstrating that a knockdown of USP4 enhances myogenesis by controlling MyoD and the level of myogenesis marker proteins in C2C12 cells...

The nuclear factor kappa B (NF-κB) pathway is pivotal in controlling survival and apoptosis of cancer cells. Macrophage migration inhibitory factor (MIF), a cytokine that regulates the immune response and tumorigenesis under inflammatory conditions, is upregulated in various tumors. However, the intracellular functions of MIF are unclear. In this study, we found that MIF directly interacted with thioredoxin-interacting protein (TXNIP), a tumor suppressor and known inhibitor of NF-κB activity, and MIF significantly induced NF-κB activation...

Breast cancer is the most frequent malignancy among women worldwide. We have described the expression of α2-adrenoceptors in breast cancer cell lines, associated with increased cell proliferation and tumor growth. A mitogenic autocrine/paracrine loop of prolactin (Prl) has been described in breast cancer cells. We hypothesized that the α2-adrenergic enhancement of proliferation could be mediated, at least in part, by this Prl loop. In both T47D and MCF-7 cell lines, the incubation with the α2-adrenergic agonist dexmedetomidine significantly increased Prl release into the culture medium (measured by the Nb2 bioassay), this effect being reversed by the α2-adrenergic antagonist rauwolscine...

S1P is a small bioactive lipid which exerts its effects following binding to a family of five G protein-coupled receptors, known as S1P1-5. Following receptor activation, multiple signalling cascades are activated, allowing S1P to regulate a range of cellular processes, such as proliferation, apoptosis, migration and angiogenesis. There is strong evidence implicating the involvement of S1P receptors (S1PRs) in cancer progression and the oncogenic effects of S1P can result from alterations in the expression of one or more of the S1PRs and/or the enzymes that regulate the levels of S1P...

Protein arginine methyltransferase 5 (PRMT5) is an arginine methylation methyltransferase that regulates various physiological processes. Abnormal PRMT5 activity has been reported in inflammation and various types of cancers. Because osteoclast differentiation is characterized by the activation of inflammation-related pathways, we speculated that PRMT5 may play a role in this process. In the present study, we found that PRMT5 was upregulated during osteoclast differentiation. Knockdown of PRMT5 with siRNA in bone marrow mononuclear cells (BMMs) resulted in inhibition of receptor activator of nuclear factor-κB ligand (RANKL)-induced osteoclast formation...

The RACK1 protein interacts with numerous proteins involved in signal transduction, the cytoskeleton, and mRNA splicing and translation. We used the 2-hybrid system to identify additional proteins interacting with RACK1 and isolated the RNA-binding protein SERBP1. SERPB1 shares amino acid sequence homology with HABP4 (also known as Ki-1/57), a component of the RNA spicing machinery that has been shown previously to interact with RACK1. Several different isoforms of SERBP1, generated by alternative mRNA splicing, interacted with RACK1 with indistinguishable interaction strength, as determined by a 2-hybrid beta-galactosidase assay...

Huntingtin-associated protein 1 (HAP1) was initially identified as a binding partner of huntingtin, mutations in which underlie Huntington's disease. Subcellular localization and protein interaction data indicate that HAP1 may be important in vesicle trafficking, cell signalling and receptor internalization. In this study, a proteomics approach was used for the identification of novel HAP1-interacting partners to attempt to shed light on the physiological function of HAP1. Using affinity chromatography with HAP1-GST protein fragments bound to Sepharose columns, this study identified a number of trafficking-related proteins that bind to HAP1...

Multicellular development in Dictyostelium discoideum involves tightly regulated signaling events controlling the entry into development, initiation of aggregation and chemotaxis, and cellular differentiation. Here we show that PkcA, a Dictyostelium discoideum Protein Kinase C-orthologue, is involved in quorum sensing and the initiation of development, as well as cAMP sensing during chemotaxis. Additionally, by epistasis analysis we provide evidence that PkcA and PldB (a Phospholipase D-orthologue) functionally interact to regulate aggregation, differentiation, and cell-cell adhesion during development...

Gemcitabine is a widely-used anti-cancer drug with a well-defined mechanism of action in normal and transformed epithelial cells. However, its effect on endothelial cells is largely unknown. Acid sphingomyelinase (ASMase) is highly expressed in endothelial cells, converting plasma membrane sphingomyelin to pro-apoptotic ceramide upon activation by diverse stresses. In the current study, we investigated gemcitabine impact in primary cultures of endothelial cells. We find baseline ASMase increases markedly in bovine aortic endothelial cells (BAEC) as they transit from a proliferative to a confluent growth-arrested state...

Interleukin 1 beta (IL-1β) is a pro-inflammatory cytokine that plays a major role in inflammatory diseases as well as cancer. The inflammatory response after Toll-like receptor (TLR) 4 activation is tightly regulated through phosphorylation of MAP kinases, including p38 and JNK pathways. The activation of MAP kinases is negatively regulated by MAPK phosphatases (MKPs). MKP-1 preferentially dephosphorylates p38 and JNK. IL-1β is regulated through the activation of MAPK, including p38 as well as several transcription factors...
