Early coronary artery reperfusion improves outcomes for patients with ST-segment elevation myocardial infarction (STEMI), but morbidity and mortality after STEMI remain unacceptably high. The primary deficits seen in these patients include inadequate pump function, owing to rapid infarction of muscle in the first few hours of treatment, and adverse remodelling of the heart in the months that follow. Given that attempts to further reduce myocardial infarct size beyond early reperfusion in clinical trials have so far been disappointing, effective therapies are still needed to protect the reperfused myocardium...

New onset of atrial fibrillation (AF) after cardiovascular surgery is associated with increased risk of complications and length of hospital stay. Identification of patients at high risk of post cardiovascular surgery AF may help to act with preventive strategies having clinical and economic relevance. Many factors such as cardiac remodelling, changes in atrial pressure, surgery trauma, inflammation, oxidative stress, and sympathetic/parasympathetic activation have been implicated in the development of post cardiovascular surgery...

Brain tumors emerge as the second commonest type of pediatric solid tumors following hematologic malignancies. Genomic profiling of low- and high-grade gliomas, ependymomas and medulloblastomas has revealed chromosomal abnormalities and specific gene mutations which have been associated with aberrant activation of crucial signal transduction pathways, including mitogen-activated protein kinase, mammalian target of rapamycin and retinoblastoma tumor suppressor signaling. Furthermore, pediatric high-grade gliomas are associated with chromatin remodeling defects and somatic histone gene mutations that affect prognosis...

ADP-ribosylation factor 6 (Arf6) is a small GTPase that regulates endosomal trafficking and actin cytoskeleton remodeling. In the present study, we comprehensively examined the cellular and subcellular localization of Arf6 in adult mouse peripheral tissues by immunofluorescence and immunoelectron microscopy using the heat-induced antigen retrieval method with Tris-EDTA buffer (pH 9.0). Marked immunolabeling of Arf6 was observed particularly in epithelial cells of several tissues including the esophagus, stomach, small and large intestines, trachea, kidney, epididymis, oviduct, and uterus...

Saccharomyces cerevisiae response and tolerance to acetic acid is critical in industrial biotechnology and in acidic food and beverages preservation. The HRK1 gene, encoding a protein kinase of unknown function belonging to the "Npr1-family" of kinases known to be involved in the regulation of plasma membrane transporters, is an important determinant of acetic acid tolerance. This study was performed to identify the alterations occurring in yeast membrane phosphoproteome profile during the adaptive early response to acetic acid stress (following 1 h of exposure to a sub-lethal inhibitory concentration; 50 mM at pH 4...

Osseointegration is the key to implant stability and occlusal support. Biomechanical response and remodeling of peri-implant bone occurs under impact loading. Sclerostin participates in bone formation and resorption through Wnt and RANKL pathways. However the mechanism of microdamage and expression of sclerostin in peri-implant bone under impact load is still unclear. In present study, specific impact forces were applied to the implants with favorable osseointegration in rabbits. The microdamage of peri-implant bone and the expression of sclerostin, β-catenin and RANKL during the process of bone damage and remodeling were investigated by micro-CT, histology, immunofluorescence and RT-qPCR analysis...

A defining hallmark of primary and metastatic cancers is the migration and invasion of malignant cells. These invasive properties involve altered dynamics of the cytoskeleton and one of its major structural components β-actin. Here we identify AIM1 (absent in melanoma 1) as an actin-binding protein that suppresses pro-invasive properties in benign prostate epithelium. Depletion of AIM1 in prostate epithelial cells increases cytoskeletal remodeling, intracellular traction forces, cell migration and invasion, and anchorage-independent growth...

Cell emergence onto damaged or organized fibrous extracellular matrix (ECM) is a crucial precursor to collective cell migration in wound closure and cancer metastasis, respectively. However, there is a fundamental gap in our quantitative understanding of the role of local ECM size and arrangement in cell emergence based migration and local gap closure. Here, using ECM-mimicking nanofibers bridging cell monolayers, we describe a method to recapitulate and quantitatively describe these in vivo behaviors over multi spatial (single cell to cell sheets) and temporal (minutes-weeks) scales...

Following cartilage injury and repair, the subchondral bone plate remodels. Skeletal maturity likely impacts both bone remodeling and inherent cartilage repair capacity. The objective of this study was to evaluate subchondral bone remodeling as a function of injury type, repair scenario and skeletal maturity in a Yucatan minipig model. Cartilage defects (4mm) were created bilaterally in the trochlear groove. Treatment conditions included a full thickness chondral defect (FCD, n=3adult/3juvenile), a partial thickness (~50%) chondral defect (PCD, n=3/3), and FCD treated with microfracture (MFX, n=3/3)...

Renal transplantation is the treatment of choice for end-stage renal disease, during which renal grafts from deceased donors are routinely cold stored to suppress metabolic demand and thereby limit ischemic injury. However, prolonged cold storage followed by reperfusion induces extensive tissue damage termed cold ischemia/reperfusion injury (IRI) and puts the graft at risk of both early and late rejection. The underlying mechanism of IRI is not completely understood and a reliable/ suitable method to protect the renal graft against cold IRI is lacking...

BACKGROUND: Interleukin-32 (IL-32) is a newly discovered proinflammatory cytokine. However, there are limited data regarding IL-32 as a biomarker for heart failure (HF). In this study, we assessed the prognostic value of IL-32 in patients with chronic HF after myocardial infarction (MI). METHODS AND RESULTS: Over a period of 1.8years, we prospectively enrolled 100 patients with chronic HF after MI. IL-32, NT-proBNP, Matrix metallopeptidase 9 (MMP-9), procollagen type I (PI) and type III (PIII) were measured at baseline...

To characterize susceptibility to HIV infection, we phenotyped infected tonsillar T cells by single-cell mass cytometry and created comprehensive maps to identify which subsets of CD4+ T cells support HIV fusion and productive infection. By comparing HIV-fused and HIV-infected cells through dimensionality reduction, clustering, and statistical approaches to account for viral perturbations, we identified a subset of memory CD4+ T cells that support HIV entry but not viral gene expression. These cells express high levels of CD127, the IL-7 receptor, and are believed to be long-lived lymphocytes...

The 70 kDa heat shock protein Hsp70 has several essential functions in living systems, such as protecting cells against protein aggregation, assisting protein folding, remodeling protein complexes, and driving translocation into organelles. These functions require high affinity for nonspecific amino acid sequences that are ubiquitous in proteins. It has been recently shown that this high affinity, called ultra-affinity, depends on a process driven out of equilibrium by ATP hydrolysis. Here, we establish the thermodynamic bounds for ultra-affinity, and further show that the same reaction scheme can in principle be used both to strengthen and to weaken affinities (leading in this case to infra-affinity)...

Hypocotyl elongation is extensively controlled by hormone signaling networks. In particular, auxin metabolism and signaling play key roles in light-dependent hypocotyl growth. The nuclear matrix facilitates organization of DNA within the nucleus, and dynamic interactions between nuclear matrix and DNA are related to gene regulation. Conserved scaffold/matrix attachment regions (S/MARs) are anchored to the nuclear matrix by the AT-HOOK MOTIF CONTAINING NUCLEAR LOCALIZED (AHL) proteins in Arabidopsis. Here, we found that ESCAROLA (ESC)/AHL27 and SUPPRESSOR OF PHYTOCHROME B-4 #3 (SOB3)/AHL29 redundantly regulate auxin biosynthesis in the control of hypocotyl elongation...

Androgen hormones play a significant role in regulating bone morphogenesis and in maintaining bone homeostasis throughout life. This study aimed to investigate the local effects of the non-aromatizable androgen stanozolol (ST) on bone regeneration in rats. Bilateral critical-size defects were created in the parietal bone of 26 male Wistar rats: the defect on one side was filled with a deproteinized bovine bone scaffold (DBB) soaked in ST solution (test) and the contralateral with DBB alone (control). Samples were collected at one month and three months...
