Therapy targeting the neurovascular unit may provide effective neuroprotection against neonatal hypoxia-ischemia (HI). We hypothesized that the peripheral injection of hypoxia-preconditioned human umbilical vein endothelial cells (HUVECs) following HI protects against neurovascular damage and provides long-term neuroprotection in a postpartum (P) day-7 rat pup model. Compared with normoxic HUVECs, hypoxic HUVECs showed enhanced migration and angiogenesis in vitro and had augmented migration effects into the brain when administered intraperitoneally in vivo after HI...

The generation of CD138+ phagocytic macrophages with an alternative (M2) phenotype that clear apoptotic cells from tissues is defective in lupus. Liver X receptor-alpha (LXRα) is an oxysterol-regulated transcription factor that promotes reverse cholesterol transport and alternative (M2) macrophage activation. Conversely, hypoxia-inducible factor 1-α (HIF1α) promotes classical (M1) macrophage activation. The objective of this study was to see if lupus can be treated by enhancing the generation of M2-like macrophages using LXR agonists...

BACKGROUND/OBJECTIVES: Obesity is related to a dynamic extracellular matrix (ECM) remodeling, which involves the synthesis and degradation of different proteins, such as tenascin C (TNC) in the adipose tissue (AT). Given the functional relationship between leptin and inducible nitric oxide synthase (iNOS), our aim was to analyze the impact of the absence of the iNOS gene in AT inflammation and ECM remodeling in ob/ob mice. SUBJECTS/METHODS: The expression of genes involved in inflammation and ECM remodeling was evaluated in 10-week-old male double knockout (DBKO) mice simultaneously lacking the ob and iNOS genes as well as in ob/ob mice classified into three groups [control, leptin-treated (1 mg kg -1 day -1 ) and pair-fed]...

Healthy tendons are maintained in homeostasis through controlled usage of glucose for energy and redox equilibrium. Tendon cell stress imposed by overuse injury or vascular insufficiency is accompanied by activation of wound healing pathways which facilitate an adaptive response and the restoration of homeostasis. To understand this response at the gene expression level we have studied the in vivo effects of injected TGF-β1 in a murine model of tendinopathy, as well as treatment of murine tendon explants with either TGF-β1 or hypoxia in vitro...

Obese women are at high risk of pregnancy complications, including preeclampsia, miscarriage, preterm birth, stillbirth and neonatal death. In the present study, we aimed to determine the effects of obesity on pregnancy outcome and placental gene expression in preclinical mouse models of genetic and nutritional obesity. The leptin receptor null reactivatable (LepRloxTB), the LepR deficient (Leprdb/+) and high fat diet (HFD) fed mice were assessed for fertility, pregnancy outcome, placental morphology and placental transcriptome using standard qPCR and qPCR arrays...

We investigated whether intra-pancreatic coagulation, with deposition of the fibrinogen-γ dimer (Fib-γD) and hypoxia, affect the severity of acute pancreatitis (AP) in mice. Pancreata of mice with AP induced by administration of cerulein or by L-arginine, or from patients with AP, had increased deposition of Fib-γD compared to control pancreata. Heparin administration protected mice from cerulein-induced AP and prevented Fib-γD formation. Cerulein administration resulted in activation and stabilization of HIF1-alpha in pancreata of ODD-luc HIF1-alpha reporter mice...

Adaptations to changes in oxygen are critical to ensure proper placental development, and impairments in oxygen sensing mechanisms characterize placental pathologies such as preeclampsia. In this study, we examined the involvement of SUMOylation, a reversible posttranslational modification, in the regulation of the asparaginyl hydroxylase Factor Inhibiting Hypoxia Inducible Factor 1 (FIH1) in the human placenta in development and in disease status. FIH1 protein abundance and spatial distribution in the developing placenta directly correlated with oxygen tension in vivo...

Kupffer cells (KCs) play a crucial role in the pathogenesis of acute-on-chronic liver failure (ACLF) which is characterized by acute and severe disease in patients with preexisting liver disease and shows high mortality. Long noncoding RNAs (lncRNAs) are recently found to be involved in gene regulation. However, the mechanisms of how KCs are regulated by inflammatory factors, tumor necrosis factor-α (TNF-α), and whether lncRNAs are involved in the process remain largely unknown. Hence, we investigated the role of lncRNAs in the cytotoxicity of TNF-α on KCs...

It is well documented that hypoxia activates the hypoxia-inducible factor 1-alpha (HIF1α)/vascular endothelial growth factor A (VEGFA) axis to promote angiogenesis in breast cancer. However, it is unclear how this axis is negatively regulated. In this study, we demonstrated that miR-153 directly inhibits expression of HIF1α by binding to the 3'UTR of HIF1A mRNA, as well as suppresses tube formation of primary human umbilical vein endothelial cells (HUVECs) and breast cancer angiogenesis by decreasing the secretion of VEGFA...

Epigenetic regulation may play an important role in mediating microbe-host interactions and adaptation of intestinal gene expression to bacterial colonization just after birth. This is particularly important after preterm birth because the immature intestine is hypersensitive to invading bacteria. We compared the intestinal DNA methylome and microbiome between conventional (CON) and antibiotics-treated (AB) preterm pigs, used as a model for preterm infants. Oral AB treatment reduced bacterial density (∼100-fold), diversity and fermentation, improved the resistance to necrotizing enterocolitis (NEC) and changed the genome-wide DNA methylation in the distal small intestine...

Merkel Cell Polyoma Virus (MCPyV) infection has been associated with non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC). Viruses can manipulate cellular miRNAs or have a profound impact on cellular miRNA expression to control host regulatory pathways. In this study, we evaluated the expression profiles of cancer-associated and virally affected host microRNAs miR-21, miR-145, miR-146a, miR-155, miR-302c, miR-367 and miR-376c in a series of NSCLC tissue samples as well as in samples from "healthy" sites, distant from the tumour region that were either positive or negative for MCPyV DNA...

Genetic polymorphisms and sex differences are suggested to affect muscle fiber composition; however, no study has investigated the effects of genetic polymorphisms on muscle fiber composition with respect to sex differences. Therefore, the present study examined the effects of genetic polymorphisms on muscle fiber composition with respect to sex differences in Japanese population. The present study included 211 healthy Japanese individuals (102 men and 109 women). Muscle biopsies were obtained from the vastus lateralis to determine the proportion of myosin heavy chain isoforms (MHC-I, MHC-IIa, and MHC-IIx)...

Hypoxia-inducible factors (HIFs) are key elements for controlling immune cell metabolism and functions. While HIFs are known to be involved in T cells and macrophages activation, their functions in B lymphocytes are poorly defined. Here, we show that hypoxia-inducible factor-1α (HIF-1α) contributes to IL-10 production by B cells. HIF-1α regulates IL-10 expression, and HIF-1α-dependent glycolysis facilitates CD1dhiCD5+ B cells expansion. Mice with B cell-specific deletion of Hif1a have reduced number of IL-10-producing B cells, which result in exacerbated collagen-induced arthritis and experimental autoimmune encephalomyelitis...

Chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) is a type of obstructive lung disease characterized by long-term poor airflow. Recently, variants in the hypoxia-inducible factor 1α ( HIF1A ) gene were found to be associated with COPD risk. This study aimed to identify whether rs10873142 polymorphism (an intronic polymorphism) in HIF1A gene was related to COPD in a Chinese population. We genotyped HIF1A gene rs10873142 polymorphism in a case-control study with 235 COPD cases and 548 controls in a Chinese Han population...

Hypoxia (i.e. oxygen deprivation) activates the hypoxia-signalling pathway, primarily via hypoxia-inducible transcription factors (HIF) for numerous target genes, which mediate angiogenesis, metabolism and coagulation, among other processes to try to replenish tissues with blood and oxygen. Hypoxia signalling dysregulation also commonly occurs during chronic inflammation. We sampled gingival tissues from rhesus monkeys (Macaca mulatta; 3-25 years old) and total RNA was isolated for microarray analysis. HIF1A, HIF1B and HIF2A were significantly different in healthy aged tissues, and both HIF1A and HIF3A were positively correlated with aging...

Hypoxia is known to be a major player during pathological angiogenesis and adenosine as a negative feedback signaling to maintain oxygen delivery in pathological ischemic condition. We mimicked hypoxic condition and studied angiogenesis by inducing adenosine receptors using forskolin, a plant compound and NECA analogue of adenosine using zebrafish model. Vascular endothelial growth factor (VEGF) is known to play a key role during pathological angiogenesis and regulated by the factors HIF1a under hypoxic condition and recently Notch is proposed to play a negative feedback loop mechanism along with VEGF signaling but the role of adenosine receptor during the process is not known...

BACKGROUND: HIF1α, miR-210 and its downstream targets ISCU, COX-10, RAD52 and PTEN are all part of the placental hypoxia-responsive network. Tight regulation of this network is required to prevent development of maternal-fetal complications such as fetal growth restriction. HIF1α expression is increased in preeclamptic placentae, but little is known about its association with birth weight in normal pregnancies. METHODS: We measured placental levels of HIF1α, miR-20a, miR-210, ISCU, COX-10, RAD52 and PTEN in 206 mother-newborn pairs of the ENVIRONAGE birth cohort...

Thoracic aortic aneurysm (TAA) is a highly lethal vascular disease. Long non-coding RNAs (lncRNAs) are newly discovered as a regulator of protein genes and play critical roles in cardiovascular physio-pathological processes. However, there were a few studies looking at lncRNAs in TAA. In this study, we profiled differential expression of lncRNAs between TAA (TAA group, N = 6) and normal thoracic aorta (control group, n = 6) by third-generation lncRNA microarray. We identified 1352 up-regulated and 1624 down-regulated lncRNAs with differential expression (log fold-change > 2...

Endothelin-2 (EDN2), expressed at a narrow window during the periovulatory period, critically affects ovulation and corpus luteum (CL) formation. LH (acting mainly via cAMP) and hypoxia are implicated in CL formation; therefore, we aimed to elucidate how these signals regulate EDN2 using human primary (hGLCs) and immortalized (SVOG) granulosa-lutein cells. The hypoxiamiR, microRNA-210 (miR-210) was identified as a new essential player in EDN2 expression. Hypoxia (either mimetic compound-CoCl2, or low O2) elevated hypoxia inducible factor 1A (HIF1A), miR-210, and EDN2...

Hypersensitivity to non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs is a common adverse drug reaction and may result in serious inflammatory reactions of the liver. To investigate mechanism of immunoallergic hepatitis beagle dogs were given 1 or 3 mg/kg/day (HD) oral diclofenac for 28 days. HD diclofenac treatment caused liver function test abnormalities, reduced haematocrit and haemoglobin but induced reticulocyte, WBC, platelet, neutrophil and eosinophil counts. Histopathology evidenced hepatic steatosis and glycogen depletion, apoptosis, acute lobular hepatitis, granulomas and mastocytosis...
