Studies have demonstrated that maternal consumption of a high fat diet (HFD) increases offspring susceptibility to metabolic disease. This study was initiated to identify the mechanistic contribution of oxidative stress on this phenomenon. Two weeks prior to mating, dams were fed either HFD or Control diet with or without supplementation with the anti-oxidant N-acetylcysteine (NAC). Pups born to HFD dams had reduced crown rump length (CRL) at birth and higher neonatal mortality compared to pups from Control dams...

Uveal melanoma (UM) is a lethal intraocular malignancy with an average survival of only 2~8 months in patients with hepatic metastasis. Currently, there is no effective therapy for metastatic UM. Here, we reported that niclosamide, an effective repellence of tapeworm that has been approved for use in patients for approximately 50 years, exhibited strong antitumor activity in UM cells in vitro and in vivo. We showed that niclosamide potently inhibited UM cell proliferation, induced apoptosis and reduced migration and invasion...

Xeroderma pigmentosum complementation group A (XP-A) is a hereditary disease characterized by early onset of skin cancers and freckles-like pigmented maculae in the sun-exposed sites. Although etiology of predisposition to UV-induced skin tumors in XP-A is well investigated as a repair deficiency in UV-induced DNA damage, the mechanism of exaggerated sunburn in patients with XP-A and whether UV-induced inflammation relates to skin tumor-prone phenotype remains to be elucidated. Using gene profiling of XP-A model mice, Xpa-deficient mice, we found that expression of CXCL1 in the skin and blood levels of in Xpa-deficient mice increased significantly after UVB exposure at an even a limited area in comparison to those of wild-type mice...

The phosphatidylinositol 3-kinase (PI3K) pathway is activated in chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD), but the regulatory mechanisms for this pathway are yet to be elucidated. Our aim was to determine the expression and role of phosphatase and tensin homolog deleted from chromosome 10 (PTEN), a negative regulator of the PI3K pathway, in COPD. PTEN expression and activity were measured in the peripheral lung of COPD patients compared to smoking and non-smoking controls. The direct influence of cigarette smoke extract (CSE) on PTEN expression was assessed using primary lung epithelial cells and a cell line (BEAS-2B) in the presence or absence of L-buthionine-sulfoximine (BSO) to deplete intracellular glutathione...

The liver, a main detoxification organ, has evolved a complex enzymatic system to respond to multiple pathological conditions, in which leucine aminopeptidase (LAP) has been reported to participate in detoxifying cisplatin in hepatoma cells and contribute to the intrinsic drug resistance. In vivo imaging of LAP activity in liver disease models is thus helpful to further understand the function of LAP in detoxification and medicine, but such an imaging approach is still lacking. Herein, we develop a selective and sensitive near-infrared fluorescent probe (HCAL) for this purpose...

Proper oocyte development is critical for female fertility and requires timely and accurate control of gene expression. K (Lysine) Acetyltransferase 8 (KAT8), an important component of the X chromosome dosage compensation system in Drosophila, regulates gene activity by acetylating histone H4 preferentially at lysine 16. To explore the function of Kat8 during mouse oocyte development, we crossed Kat8(flox/flox) mice with Gdf9-Cre mice to specifically delete Kat8 in oocytes. Oocyte Kat8 deletion resulted in female infertility with follicle development failure in the secondary and preantral follicle stages...

Sialic acids are monosaccharides found in terminal sugar chains of cell surfaces and proteins; they have various biological functions and have been implicated in health and disease. Genetic defects of the GNE gene which encodes a critical bifunctional enzyme for sialic acid biosynthesis, lead to GNE myopathy, a disease manifesting with progressive muscle atrophy and weakness. The likely mechanism of disease is a lack of sialic acids. There remains, however, an unexplained link between hyposialylation and the muscle atrophy and weakness...

Diclofenac (DCF) adverse reactions involve diverse mechanisms in different models. We recently demonstrated that DCF-induced toxicity in HepaRG decreases as they express DCF-metabolizing enzymes. DCF metabolism promotes toxicity in Saccharomyces cerevisiae expressing heterologous cytochromes-P450. N-Acetylcysteine (NAC) is used to treat diverse medical conditions due to its multiple properties (antioxidant, metal chelator, thiol-disulfide disruption). The latter property accounts for its mucolytic effects and broadens its potential molecular targets to signal transduction proteins, ABC transporters and others...

Alzheimer's disease (AD) is a neurodegenerative disorder pathologically characterized by severe neuronal and glial structural changes and progressive cognitive decline. N-acetylcysteine (NAC) is a well-known pharmacological agent with pro-neurogenic properties and neuroprotective effects. In this study, we evaluated NAC protective effects on cognitive impairment and associated pathological markers in a streptozotocin (STZ)-induced sporadic dementia of AD type mice model. Animals were divided into six groups: I) Sham, II) NAC, III) physostigmine (PHY), IV) STZ, V) NAC + STZ and VI) PHY + NAC...

Responses of melanocytes (MC) to ultraviolet (UV) irradiation can be influenced by their neighbouring keratinocytes (KC). We investigated the role of Nrf2 in regulating paracrine effects of KC on UVB-induced MC responses through phosphorylation of MAPKs in association with oxidative stress in primary human MC cocultured with primary human KC using a transwell co-culture system and small-interfering RNA-mediated silencing of Nrf2 (siNrf2). The mechanisms by which Nrf2 modulated paracrine factors including α-melanocyte-stimulating hormone (α-MSH) and paracrine effects of KC on UVB-mediated apoptosis were also assessed...

An increased intracellular methylglyoxal (MGO) under hyperglycemia led to pancreatic beta cell death. However, its mechanism in which way with MGO induced beta cell death remains unknown. We investigated both high glucose and MGO treatment significantly inclined intracellular MGO concentration and inhibited cell viability in vitro. MGO treatment also triggered intracellular advanced glycation end products (AGEs) formation, declined mitochondrial membrane potential (MMP), increased oxidative stress and the expression of ER stress mediators Grp78/Bip and p-PERK; activated mitochondrial apoptotic pathway, which could mimic by Glo1 knockdown...

Background -Platelet crosslinking during arterial thrombosis involves von Willebrand Factor (VWF) multimers. Therefore, proteolysis of VWF appears promising to disaggregate platelet-rich thrombi and restore vessel patency in acute thrombotic disorders such as ischemic stroke, acute coronary syndrome or acute limb ischemia. N-Acetylcysteine (NAC, a clinically approved mucolytic drug) can reduce intrachain disulfide bonds in large polymeric proteins. In the present study, we postulated that NAC might cleave the VWF multimers inside occlusive thrombi, thereby leading to their dissolution and arterial recanalization...

Inflammatory responses elicited by LRR and PYD domains-containing protein 3 (NLRP3) inflammasome is induced by a wide variety of stress signals including infectious agents and cellular disorders. E. coli O157:H7 causes serious gastrointestinal diseases that results in severe inflammation and oxidative stress, causing host cell damage. In this study, we found that E. coli O157:H7 infection induced NLRP3 assembly, caspase-1 activation and interleukin (IL)-1β and IL-18 release in Caco-2 cells. Infection also resulted in mitochondrial dysfunction with disrupted mitochondrial potential and mitochondrial complex-I activity, as well as the cytosolic release of cytochrome c and altered mitochondrial respiratory chain...
