DJ-1 and sphingosine-1-phosphate (S1P) receptors (S1PRs) are implicated in the control of physiology and pathophysiology of cardiovascular systems such as blood pressure, atherosclerosis, and restenosis. Here, we investigated whether DJ-1 with antioxidant function participates in the regulation of S1PR1 and S1PR2 expression in vascular smooth muscle cells (VSMCs) and whether this response is related to vascular neointima formation. In vitro studies used cellular migration assay, western blot, reverse transcriptase and real-time PCR analysis, and immunocytochemistry...

14-3-3ζ is overexpressed in several cancers, including esophageal squamous cell carcinoma (ESCC), and plays an important role in tumorigenesis. However, the mechanisms underlying its tumorigenesis remain unclear. Here we report that 14-3-3ζ was upregulated in ESCC tumors, compared with adjacent normal tissues; 14-3-3ζ levels were positively correlated with ESCC lymph node metastasis and recurrence. Overexpression of 14-3-3ζ promoted the tumor growth and invasion of ESCC in vitro and in vivo, whereas depletion of 14-3-3ζ suppressed these effects...

Background -Obesity plays crucial roles in the development of cardiovascular diseases (CVDs). However, the mechanisms that link obesity and CVDs remain elusive. Compelling evidence indicates that adipokines play an important role in obesity-related CVDs. Here, we found a new adipokine named family with sequence similarity 19, member A5 (FAM19A5), a protein with unknown function that was predicted to be distantly related to the CC-chemokine family. We aimed to test whether adipose-derived FAM19A5 regulates vascular pathology upon injury...

Sphingosine-1-phosphate (S1P) is an inflammatory mediator increased in the tissue in the number of inflammatory conditions. Preliminary data indicate that the vagal afferent neurons express several S1P receptors including S1PR2-3. We therefore evaluated the hypothesis that S1P induces cough and/or enhances the cough evoked by other tussive stimuli (TRPA1 and TRPV1 activators) in naïve guinea pigs. Inhalation of S1P in the concentrations of 0.1 mM and 1 mM did not evoke cough. Preinhalation and continuing inhalation of S1P (1 mM) during citric acid (0...

Blood-brain barrier (BBB) disruption caused by reperfusion injury after ischemic stroke is an intractable event conducive to further injury. Brain pericytes play a vital role in maintaining BBB integrity by interacting with other components of the BBB. In this study, we found that sphingosine-1-phosphate receptor (S1PR)2 expressed in pericytes was significantly up-regulated after ischemia in vivo and in vitro. By using a S1PR2 antagonist (JTE-013), we showed that S1PR2 plays a critical role in the induction of BBB permeability of transient middle cerebral artery occlusion (tMCAO) rats and the in vitro BBB model...

Inhibition of histone deacetylase-2 (HDAC2), which is a prohypertrophic factor in the heart, can functionally attenuate cardiac hypertrophy. The present study aimed to investigate whether sphingosine‑1‑phosphate (S1P), which has recently been reported to suppress HDAC2 activity, could ameliorate the cardiac hypertrophic response and improve cardiac function in mice with transverse aortic constriction (TAC), as well as to determine the underlying mechanisms. Briefly, 8‑week‑old male C57BL/6 mice were randomly divided into sham, TAC and TAC + S1P groups; the results indicated that S1P treatment attenuated TAC‑induced cardiac dysfunction...

Eleven new sphingosine 1-phosphate receptor 2 (S1PR2) ligands were synthesized by modifying lead compound N-(2,6-dichloropyridin-4-yl)-2-(4-isopropyl-1,3-dimethyl-1H-pyrazolo[3,4-b]pyridin-6-yl)hydrazine-1-carboxamide (JTE-013) and their binding affinities toward S1PRs were determined in vitro using [32P]S1P and cell membranes expressing recombinant human S1PRs. Among these ligands, 35a (IC50 = 29.1 ± 2.6 nM) and 35b (IC50 = 56.5 ± 4.0 nM) exhibit binding potency toward S1PR2 comparable to JTE-013 (IC50 = 58...

The role of sphingosine-1 phosphate (S1P) in leukocyte trafficking has been well deciphered in mice but remains largely unaddressed in humans. In this study, we assessed the ex vivo response to S1P of primary human T cell subsets. We found that tonsil but not blood leukocytes were responsive to S1P gradients, suggesting that T cell responsiveness is regulated during their recirculation in vivo. Tonsil naive T cells were readily chemoattracted by S1P in an FTY720-sensitive, S1PR1-dependent manner. Surprisingly, S1P had the opposite effect on effector memory T cells, resident memory T cells, and recently activated T cells, inhibiting their spontaneous or chemokine-induced migration...

INTRODUCTION: Failure of trophoblast invasion and remodelling of maternal blood vessels leads to the pregnancy complication pre-eclampsia (PE). In other systems, the sphingolipid, sphingosine-1-phosphate (S1P), controls cell migration therefore this study determined its effect on extravillous trophoblast (EVT) function. METHODS: A transwell migration system was used to assess the behaviour of three trophoblast cell lines, Swan-71, SGHPL-4, and JEG3, and primary human trophoblasts in the presence or absence of S1P, S1P pathway inhibitors and 1,25(OH)2 D3 ...

Cumulating evidences suggested an important role of sphingosine-1-phosphate (S1P) and its receptors in regulating endothelial barrier integrity. Our previous study revealed that the circulating S1P levels and renal expression of S1PRs correlated with disease activity and renal damage in patients with antineutrophil cytoplasmic antibody (ANCA)-associated vasculitis (AAV). This study investigated the role of S1P and its receptors in myeloperoxidase (MPO)-ANCA-positive IgG-mediated glomerular endothelial cell (GEnC) activation...

It was previously reported that low‑dose sphingosine‑1‑phosphate (S1P) enhanced endothelial barrier integrity, whereas high‑dose S1P induced endothelial monolayer hyperpermeability responses. A number of studies have revealed the underlying molecular mechanisms of the physiological‑dose of S1P on barrier‑protective effect. However, little work has been performed to determine the effect of S1P‑induced endothelial barrier responses. In the present study, the role of moesin phosphorylation in excessive S1P‑induced endothelial hyperpermeability was investigated by western blotting, fluorescence staining and transendothelial electrical resistance detection...

The ever-increasing prevalence of metabolic diseases such as dyslipidemia and diabetes in the western world continues to be of great public health concern. Biologically active sphingolipids, such as sphingosine 1-phosphate (S1P) and ceramide, are important regulators of lipid metabolism. S1P not only directly functions as an active intracellular mediator, but also activates multiple signaling pathways via five transmembrane G-protein coupled receptors (GPCRs), S1PR1-5. S1P is exclusively formed by sphingosine kinases (SphKs)...

Bile acids (BA) are synthesized from cholesterol in the liver. They are essential for promotion of the absorption of lipids, cholesterol, and lipid-soluble vitamins from the intestines. BAs are hormones that regulate nutrient metabolism by activating nuclear receptors (farnesoid X receptor (FXR), pregnane X receptor, vitamin D) and G protein-coupled receptors (e.g., TGR5, sphingosine-1-phosphate receptor 2 (S1PR2)) in the liver and intestines. In the liver, S1PR2 activation by conjugated BAs activates the extracellular signal-regulated kinase 1/2 and AKT signaling pathways, and nuclear sphingosine kinase 2...

Disruption of insulin secretion and clearance both contribute to obesity-induced hyperinsulinemia, though reduced insulin clearance seems to be the main factor. The liver is the major site for insulin degradation, a process mainly coordinated by the insulin-degrading enzyme (IDE). The beneficial effects of taurine conjugated bile acid (TUDCA) on insulin secretion as well as insulin sensitivity have been recently described. However, the possible role of TUDCA in insulin clearance had not yet been explored. Here, we demonstrated that 15 days treatment with TUDCA reestablished plasma insulin to physiological concentrations in high fat diet (HFD) mice, a phenomenon associated with increased insulin clearance and liver IDE expression...

Aldosterone has been identified as an important factor in obesity-associated hypertension. Here, we investigated whether sphingosine-1-phosphate (S1P), which has previously been linked to obesity, increases aldosterone release. S1P-induced aldosterone release was determined in NCI H295R cells in the presence of S1P receptor (S1PR) antagonists. In vivo release of S1P (100-300 µg/kgbw ) was investigated in pithed, lean Sprague Dawley (SD) rats, diet-obese spontaneous hypertensive rats (SHRs), as well as in lean or obese Zucker rats...

The bioactive sphingosine-1-phosphatephosphate (S1P) is present in plasma, bound to carrier proteins, and involved in many physiological processes, including angiogenesis, inflammatory responses, and vascular stabilization. S1P can bind to several G-protein-coupled receptors (GPCRs) activating a number of different signaling networks. At present, the dynamics and relative importance of signaling events activated immediately downstream of GPCR activation are unclear. To examine these, we used a set of fluorescence resonance energy transfer-based biosensors for different RhoGTPases (Rac1, RhoA/B/C, and Cdc42) as well as for heterotrimeric G-proteins in a series of live-cell imaging experiments in primary human endothelial cells...
