BACKGROUND: Chickens are animals that are sensitive to thermal stress, which may decrease their production level in terms that it affects feed intake and thus, decreasing body weight gain. The Heat Shock Factors (HSF) and Heat Shock Proteins (HSP) genes are involved in the key cellular defense mechanisms during exposure in hot environments. Aimed with this study to analyze the expression of HSF1, HSF3, HSP70 and HSP90 genes in two local breeds (Peloco and Caneluda) and a commercial broiler line (Cobb 500®) to verify differences in resistance of these chicken to Heat stress treatment...

Heat-shock proteins (HSPs) belong to the chaperone protein family whose expression is induced by different stresses including heat-shock. In response to the extracellular or intrinsic stimuli and stresses, HSPs play important roles in the maintenance of cellular homeostasis. HSP70, a major HSP protein (molecular weight, 70 KDa), regulates diverse cellular pathways including protein quality control, translation, immune response, and cancer survival. As a critical cellular defense system to minimize damages from cellular stresses, HSP70 expression and transcriptional activation are rapidly regulated, mainly through the action of a transcription activator, Heat shock factor 1 (HSF1)...

Myocardial injury and dysfunction are critical manifestations of sepsis. Previous studies have reported that liver X receptor (LXR) activation is protective during sepsis. However, whether LXR activation protects against septic heart injury and its underlying mechanisms remain elusive. This study was designed to determine the role of LXR activation in the septic heart with a focus on SIRT1 (silent information regulator 1) signaling. Male cardiac-specific SIRT1 knockout mice (SIRT1-/-) and their wild-type littermates were subjected to sepsis by cecal ligation and puncture (CLP) in the presence or absence of LXR agonist T0901317...

Hikeshi mediates the heat stress-induced nuclear import of heat-shock protein 70 (HSP70s: HSP70/HSC70). Dysfunction of Hikeshi causes some serious effects in humans; however, the cellular function of Hikeshi is largely unknown. Here, we investigated the effects of Hikeshi depletion on the survival of human cells after proteotoxic stress and found opposite effects in HeLa and hTERT-RPE1 (RPE) cells; depletion of Hikeshi reduced the survival of HeLa cells, but increased the survival of RPE cells in response to proteotoxic stress...

Genetic variants at PTK2B-CLU locus pose as high risk factors for many age-related disorders. However, the role of these variants in disease progression is less characterized. In this study, we aimed to investigate the functional significance of a clusterin intronic SNP, rs2279590 that has been associated with pseudoexfoliation (PEX), Alzheimer's disease (AD), and diabetes. We have previously shown that the alleles at rs2279590 differentially regulate clusterin (CLU) gene expression in lens capsule tissues...

The heat shock response (HSR) is a mechanism to cope with proteotoxic stress by inducing the expression of molecular chaperones and other heat shock response genes. The HSR is evolutionarily well conserved and has been widely studied in bacteria, cell lines and lower eukaryotic model organisms. However, mechanistic insights into the HSR in higher eukaryotes, in particular in mammals, are limited. We have developed an in vivo heat shock protocol to analyze the HSR in mice and dissected heat shock factor 1 (HSF1)-dependent and -independent pathways...

DNA damage is constantly produced by both endogenous and exogenous factors; DNA lesions then trigger the so-called DNA damaged response (DDR). This is a highly synchronized pathway that involves recognition, signaling and repair of the damage. Failure to eliminate DNA lesions is associated with genome instability, a driving force in tumorigenesis. Proteins carry out the vast majority of cellular functions and thus proteome quality control (PQC) is critical for the maintenance of cellular functionality. PQC is assured by the proteostasis network (PN), which under conditions of proteome instability address the triage decision of protein fold, hold, or degrade...

Transcription is a highly regulated process, and stress-induced changes in gene transcription have been shown to play a major role in stress responses and adaptation. Genome-wide studies reveal prevalent transcription beyond known protein-coding gene loci, generating a variety of RNA classes, most of unknown function. One such class, termed downstream of gene-containing transcripts (DoGs), was reported to result from transcriptional readthrough upon osmotic stress in human cells. However, how widespread the readthrough phenomenon is, and what its causes and consequences are, remain elusive...

In nutrient restricted environments, the yeast endosulfines Igo1/2 are activated via TORC1 inhibition and function critically to initiate and coordinate the cellular stress response that promotes survival. We examined expression of αEnsa, the mammalian homolog of yeast endosulfines, in rat stroke. Prominent neuronal upregulation of αEnsa was identified in 3 patterns within the ischemic gradient: (1) neurons in GFAP-/HSF1+ cortex showed upregulation and near-complete nuclear translocation of αEnsa protein within hours of ischemic onset; (2) neurons in GFAP+/HSF1+ cortex showed upregulation in cytoplasm and nuclei that persisted for days; (3) neurons in GFAP+/HSF1- cortex showed delayed cytosolic-only upregulation that persisted for days...

Upregulation of the heat shock transcription factor 1 (HSF1) has been described as a frequent event in many cancer types, but its oncogenic role in hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC) remains poorly delineated. In the present study, we assessed the function(s) of HSF1 in hepatocarcinogenesis via in vitro and in vivo approaches. In particular, we determined the importance of HSF1 on v-Akt murine thymoma viral oncogene homolog (AKT)-induced liver cancer development in mice. We found that knockdown of HSF1 activity via specific siRNA triggered growth restraint by suppressing cell proliferation and inducing massive cell apoptosis in human HCC cell lines...

Temperature influences the distribution, range, and phenology of plants. The key transcriptional activators of heat shock response in eukaryotes, the heat shock factors (HSFs), have undergone large-scale gene amplification in plants. While HSFs are central in heat stress responses, their role in the response to ambient temperature changes is less well understood. We show here that the warm ambient temperature transcriptome is dependent upon the HSFA1 clade of Arabidopsis HSFs, which cause a rapid and dynamic eviction of H2A...

The heat shock response (HSR) was originally discovered as a transcriptional response to elevated temperature shock and led to the identification of heat shock proteins and heat shock factor 1 (HSF1). Since then HSF1 has been shown to be important for combating other forms of environmental perturbations as well as genetic variations that cause proteotoxic stress. The HSR has long been thought to be an absolute response to conditions of cell stress and the primary mechanism by which HSF1 promotes organismal health by preventing protein aggregation and subsequent proteome imbalance...

Considerable evidences have shown that both heat shock transcription factor 1 (HSF1) and autophagy can attenuate the sensitivity of hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC) cells to chemotherapeutic reagents. However, it is still little known whether HSF1 is associated with autophagy in regulating the chemosensitivity of HCC cells. In this study, we for the first time demonstrated that HSF1 markedly attenuated the killing effect of epirubicin (EPI) to HCC cells via enhancing the EPI-induced protective autophagy. Mechanistically, HSF1 upregulated autophagy related 4B (ATG4B) in HCC cells, which enhanced the EPI-triggered protective autophagy...

Autophagy plays a critical role in the maintenance of cellular homeostasis by degrading proteins, lipids and organelles. Autophagy is activated in response to stress, but its regulation in the context of other stress response pathways, such as those mediated by heat shock factor 1 (HSF1) and nuclear factor-erythroid 2 p45-related factor 2 (NRF2), is not well understood. We found that the Michael acceptor bis(2-hydoxybenzylidene)acetone (HBB2), a dual activator of NRF2 and HSF1, protects against the development of UV irradiation-mediated cutaneous squamous cell carcinoma in mice...

The Bcl-2 family protein, Mcl-1 is known to have anti-apoptotic functions, and depletion of Mcl-1 by cellular stresses favors the apoptotic process. Moreover, Mcl-1 levels are frequently increased in various cancer cells, including non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC), and is implicated in resistance to conventional chemotherapy and in cancer metastasis. In this study, we demonstrated that KRIBB11 accelerates the proteasomal degradation of Mcl-1 in the NSCLC cell line, A549. While KRIBB11 is an inhibitor of HSF1, we found that KRIBB11 induced Mcl-1 degradation in an HSF1-independent manner...

The heat shock transcription factors (HSFs) were discovered over 30 years ago as direct transcriptional activators of genes regulated by thermal stress, encoding heat shock proteins. The accepted paradigm posited that HSFs exclusively activate the expression of protein chaperones in response to conditions that cause protein misfolding by recognizing a simple promoter binding site referred to as a heat shock element. However, we now realize that the mammalian family of HSFs comprises proteins that independently or in concert drive combinatorial gene regulation events that activate or repress transcription in different contexts...

Heat-shock proteins (HSPs) are the protective proteins expressed by cells under stress. Heat-shock factors (HSFs) are the key factors to regulate HSPs. Researches about the effects of HSF1 and HSPs in cells after stress and the mechanism have become the important entry point to explore the cell response in wound healing after trauma. This article reviews the effects of HSPs and HSF1 which regulate the proteins on wound healing and the mechanism, so as to deliver message for studying effects of intervening HSF1 on expression of HSPs and wound healing and the mechanism...

BACKGROUND: Pasteurella multocida is a Gram-negative bacterium that causes economically significant infections of a broad range of animal species. Pneumonic and septicaemic pasteurellosis caused by this bacterium remain important problems in pigs, cattle, and water buffaloes in Thailand. The aim of this study was to characterise the virulence-associated gene profiles and to develop an OmpA molecular typing scheme for classifying 191 bovine and porcine isolates of P. multocida collected between 1989 and 2012 in Thailand using polymerase chain reactions (PCRs), nucleotide sequencing, and sequence and structural bioinformatics analyses...

Cardiomyopathy involves changes in myocardial ultrastructure and cardiac hypertrophy. Angiotensin II (AngII) has previously been shown to stimulate the expression of IGF-2 and IGF-2R in H9c2 cardiomyoblasts and increase of blood pressure, and cardiac hypertrophy. Estrogen receptors (ERs) exert protective effects, such as anti-hypertrophy in cadiomyocytes. Tanshinone IIA (TSN), a main active ingredient from a Chinese medical herb, Salvia miltiorrhiza Bunge (Danshen), was shown to protect cardiomyocytes hypertrophy by different stress signals...
