REVIEW
Anna Idelevich, Roland Baron
The brain, which governs most, if not all, physiological functions in the body, from the complexities of cognition, learning and memory, to the regulation of basal body temperature, heart rate and breathing, has long been known to affect skeletal health. In particular, the hypothalamus - located at the base of the brain in close proximity to the medial eminence, where the blood-brain-barrier is not as tight as in other regions of the brain but rather "leaky", due to fenestrated capillaries - is exposed to a variety of circulating body cues, such as nutrients (glucose, fatty acids, amino acids), and hormones (insulin, glucagon, leptin, adiponectin) [1-3]...

Recent biochemical characterization of Arsenic resistance protein 2 (Ars2) has established it as central to determining the fate of nascent RNA polymerase II (RNAPII) transcripts. Through interactions with the nuclear 5'-7-methylguanosine (7mG) cap binding complex (CBC), Ars2 promotes co-transcriptional processing coupled with nuclear export or degradation of several classes of RNAPII transcripts, allowing for gene expression programs that facilitate rapid and sustained proliferation of immortalized cells in culture...

Standard treatments of adult acquired flatfoot deformity (AAFD) fail to correct associated dysfunction of the posterior tibial tendon (PTT). This study aimed to determine if a novel passive engineering mechanism (PEM) enhanced flexor digitorum longus (FDL) tendon transfer procedure would better restore physiologic PTT function to improve AAFD gait parameters compared to standard treatment. We evaluated the kinetic, pedobarographic, and kinematic effects of a pulley-based PEM-enhancement system utilizing a cadaveric flatfoot model and robotic gait simulator...

Several species of lizards from the megadiverse island of New Guinea have evolved green blood. An unusually high concentration of the green bile pigment biliverdin in the circulatory system of these lizards makes the blood, muscles, bones, tongue, and mucosal tissues bright green in color, eclipsing the crimson color from their red blood cells. This is a remarkable physiological feature because bile pigments are toxic physiological waste products of red blood cell catabolism and, when chronically elevated, cause jaundice in humans and all other vertebrates...

Dendritic cells (DC) are important in the onset and severity of inflammatory bowel disease (IBD). Tolerogenic DC induce T-cells to become therapeutic Foxp3+ regulatory T-cells (Tregs). We therefore asked if experimental IBD could be prevented by administration of bone marrow-derived DC generated under conventional GM-CSF/IL-4 conditions but in the presence of a mixture of antisense DNA oligonucleotides targeting the primary transcripts of CD40, CD80, and CD86. These cell products (which we call AS-ODN BM-DC) have demonstrated tolerogenic activity in preventing type 1 diabetes and preserving beta cell mass in new-onset type 1 diabetes in the NOD mouse strain, in earlier studies...

The present work proposes a simple, novel fixation concept for short stem hip endoprostheses, which preserves the pre-surgery force flow through femoral bone to an unprecedented extent. It is demonstrated by finite element analyses that a standard implant model endowed with minor geometrical changes can overcome bone loading reduction and can achieve almost physiological conditions. The numerical results underpin that the key aspect of the novel, so-called "collar cortex compression concept CO4 " is the direct, almost full load transmission from the implant collar to the resected femur cortex, which implies that the implant stem must be smooth and therefore interacts mainly by normal contact with the surrounding bone...

Osteodegenerative disease and bone fractures lead to bone damage or loss, requiring new bone formation to replace the damaged tissues. Classical 'top-down' tissue engineering relies on seeding cell suspensions into biomaterial scaffolds, and then guiding cell fate by growth factors. However, complex tissue fabrication using this approach has important limitations. 'Bottom-up' tissue engineering has the potential to overcome the drawbacks of the top-down approach, by using 'building blocks' of cell spheroids for tissue biofabrication without a scaffold...

BACKGROUND: Immunotherapy with chimeric antigen receptor (CAR)-modified T-cells targeting CD19 for pediatric acute lymphoblastic leukemia (ALL) has demonstrated significant efficacy. The principle toxicity is cytokine release syndrome with resultant hypotension. However, the spectrum of cardiovascular effects associated with CAR T-cell therapy has not been systematically evaluated. METHODS: We reviewed all patients who received CD19-directed CAR T-cells at the Children's Hospital of Philadelphia between April 2012 and September 2016...

The elaborate anatomy of hands and feet is shaped by coordinated formation of digits and regression of the interdigital mesenchyme (IM). A failure of this process causes persistence of interdigital webbing and consequently cutaneous syndactyly. Bone morphogenetic proteins (BMPs) are key inductive factors for interdigital cell death (ICD) in vivo. NOGGIN (NOG) is a major BMP antagonist that can interfere with BMP-induced ICD when applied exogenously, but its in vivo role in this process is unknown. We investigated the physiological role of NOG in ICD and found that Noggin null mice display cutaneous syndactyly and impaired interdigital mesenchyme specification...

Tanezumab, an anti-nerve growth factor (NGF) antibody, is in development for management of chronic pain. During clinical trials of anti-NGF antibodies, some patients reported unexpected adverse events requiring total joint replacements, resulting in a partial clinical hold on all NGF inhibitors. Three nonclinical toxicology studies were conducted to evaluate the effects of tanezumab or the murine precursor muMab911 on selected bone and joint endpoints and biomarkers in cynomolgus monkeys, Sprague-Dawley rats, and C57BL/6 mice...

Pneumonia is a type of acute lower respiratory infection that is common and severe. The outcome of lower respiratory infection is determined by the degrees to which immunity is protective and inflammation is damaging. Intercellular and interorgan signaling networks coordinate these actions to fight infection and protect the tissue. Cells residing in the lung initiate and steer these responses, with additional immunity effectors recruited from the bloodstream. Responses of extrapulmonary tissues, including the liver, bone marrow, and others, are essential to resistance and resilience...

Osteoporosis is a global public health problem that is increasing along with an aging population. A major determinant of osteoporosis is high bone turnover, which results from osteoclast activation. CD109 is a glycosylphosphatidylinositol-anchored glycoprotein, a deficiency that leads to a psoriasis-like skin inflammation in mice. Although the expression of CD109 has been reported in mouse pre-osteoclast cells, its function in osteoclasts in vivo remains largely unknown. To investigate the physiological role of CD109 in bone metabolism, we analyzed bones from wild-type and CD109-deficient adult mice...

Composite materials based on hydroxyapatite are widely used for bone tissue engineering. There is evidence of a positive effect of the presence of strontium in osteoplastic materials in the case of a Ca/Sr certain ratio. To examine the effect of the addition of Sr2+ , a study was made by introducing it into the material composition based on biogenic hydroxyapatite and sodium borosilicate glass (50/50% wt.). The strontium was introduced into the composition in an amount of 1% wt. Composite materials were obtained at final sintering temperatures of 780 °C and a sintering time of 1 h...

Sarcoptic mange, caused by the parasitic mite Sarcoptes scabiei , causes a substantive burden of disease to humans, domestic animals and wildlife, globally. There are many effects of S. scabiei infection, culminating in the disease which hosts suffer. However, major knowledge gaps remain on the pathogenic impacts of this infection. Here, we focus on the bare-nosed wombat host ( Vombatus ursinus ) to investigate the effects of mange on: (i) host heat loss and thermoregulation, (ii) field metabolic rates, (iii) foraging and resting behaviour across full circadian cycles, and (iv) fatty acid composition in host adipose, bone marrow, brain and muscle tissues...

The circadian clock is a system that controls endogenous time of organisms, and it regulates the physiology and behavior of bodies. The transcription factors Brain and Muscle ARNT-like Protein 1 (BMAL1) and Period2 (Per2) are components of the circadian clock, and they play vital roles in circadian clock function. Both Bmal1-/- mice and Per2-/- mice display obvious bone volume changes. In this study, we inhibited the expression of Bmal1 in bone marrow-derived mesenchymal stem cells (BMSCs) using a lentiviral vector harboring RNAi sequences, which increased the osteogenic differentiation capability of BMSCs...

Breast cancer cells release the signalling molecule glutamate via the system xC - antiporter, which is upregulated to exchange extracellular cystine for intracellular glutamate to protect against oxidative stress. Here, we demonstrate that this antiporter is functionally influenced by the actions of the neurotrophin nerve growth factor on its cognate receptor tyrosine kinase, TrkA, and that inhibiting this complex may reduce cancer-induced bone pain via its downstream actions on xCT, the functional subunit of system xC - ...

B-cell formation, development, and differentiation are complex processes regulated by several mechanisms. Recently, there has been growing evidence indicating that microRNAs (miRNAs) are important for normal B-cell lineage development. miRNAs are small non-coding RNA molecules, about 20-22 nucleotide in length, that play an important role in regulating gene expression. They pair with specific messenger RNAs (mRNAs), resulting in mRNAs translational repression or degradation. Here, we review current research about the function of miRNAs in the aspects of B-cell physiology and pathology...

Bone metastasis is a leading cause of death in patients with breast cancer, but the underlying mechanisms are poorly understood. While much work focuses on the molecular and cellular events that drive breast cancer bone metastasis, it is mostly unclear what role bone extracellular matrix (ECM) properties play in this process. Bone ECM primarily consists of mineralized collagen fibrils, which are composed of non-stoichiometric carbonated apatite (HA) and collagen type I. Reduced bone mineral content is epidemiologically linked with increased risk of bone metastasis...

Nuclear organization is functionally linked to genetic and epigenetic regulation of gene expression for biological control and is modified in cancer. Nuclear organization supports cell growth and phenotypic properties of normal and cancer cells by facilitating physiologically responsive interactions of chromosomes, genes and regulatory complexes at dynamic three-dimensional microenvironments. We will review nuclear structure/function relationships that include: 1. Epigenetic bookmarking of genes by phenotypic transcription factors to control fidelity and plasticity of gene expression as cells enter and exit mitosis; 2...
