Oesophageal tissue engineering is a therapeutic alternative when oesophageal replacement is required. Decellularised scaffolds are ideal as they are derived from tissue-specific extracellular matrix and are non-immunogenic. However, appropriate preservation may significantly affect scaffold behaviour. Here we aim to prove that an effective method for short- and long-term preservation can be applied to tissue engineered products allowing their translation to clinical application. Rabbit oesophagi were decellularised using the detergent-enzymatic treatment (DET), a combination of deionised water, sodium deoxycholate and DNase-I...

Close appositions between the membrane of the endoplasmic reticulum (ER) and other intracellular membranes have important functions in cell physiology. These include lipid homeostasis, regulation of Ca(2+) dynamics, and control of organelle biogenesis and dynamics. Although these membrane contacts have previously been observed in neurons, their distribution and abundance have not been systematically analyzed. Here, we have used focused ion beam-scanning electron microscopy to generate 3D reconstructions of intracellular organelles and their membrane appositions involving the ER (distance ≤30 nm) in different neuronal compartments...

In a dominant mouse ethylnitrosurea mutagenesis screen for genes regulating erythropoiesis, we identified a pedigree with a novel microcytic hypochromia caused by a V235G missense mutation in Dynamin 2 (Dnm2). Mutations in Dnm2, a GTPase, are highly disease-specific and have been implicated in four forms of human diseases: centronuclear myopathy, Charcot-Marie Tooth neuropathy and, more recently, T-cell leukaemia and Hereditary Spastic Paraplegia, but red cell abnormalities have not been reported to date. The V235G mutation lies within a crucial GTP nucleotide-binding pocket of Dnm2, and resulted in defective GTPase activity and incompatibility with life in the homozygous state...

REVIEW
Yasunori Saheki, Pietro De Camilli
The extended-synaptotagmins (tricalbins in yeast) derive their name from their partial domain structure similarity to the synaptotagmins, which are characterized by an N-terminal membrane anchor and cytosolically exposed C2 domains. However, they differ from the synaptotagmins in localization and function. The synaptotagmins tether secretory vesicles, including synaptic vesicles, to the plasma membrane (PM) via their C2 domains and regulate their Ca(2+) triggered exocytosis. In contrast, the extended-synaptotagmins are resident proteins of the endoplasmic reticulum (ER), which tether this organelle to the plasma membrane via their C2 domains, but not as a premise to fusion of the two membranes...

Yasunori Saheki, Pietro De Camilli
The endoplasmic reticulum (ER) has a broad localization throughout the cell and forms direct physical contacts with all other classes of membranous organelles, including the plasma membrane (PM). A number of protein tethers that mediate these contacts have been identified, and study of these protein tethers has revealed a multiplicity of roles in cell physiology, including regulation of intracellular Ca(2+) dynamics and signaling as well as control of lipid traffic and homeostasis. In this review, we discuss the cross talk between the ER and the PM mediated by direct contacts...

REVIEW
Dragomir Milovanovic, Pietro De Camilli
Phase separation in the cytoplasm is emerging as a major principle in intracellular organization. In this process, sets of macromolecules assemble themselves into liquid compartments that are distinct from the surrounding medium but are not delimited by membrane boundaries. Here, we discuss how phase separation, in which a component of one of the two phases is vesicles rather than macromolecules, could underlie the formation of synaptic vesicle (SV) clusters in proximity to presynaptic sites. The organization of SVs into a liquid phase could explain how SVs remain tightly clustered without being stably bound to a scaffold so that they can be efficiently recruited to release site by active zone components...

Synaptojanin 1 (SJ1) is a major presynaptic phosphatase that couples synaptic vesicle endocytosis to the dephosphorylation of PI(4,5)P2, a reaction needed for the shedding of endocytic factors from their membranes. While the role of SJ1's 5-phosphatase module in this process is well recognized, the contribution of its Sac phosphatase domain, whose preferred substrate is PI4P, remains unclear. Recently a homozygous mutation in its Sac domain was identified in early-onset parkinsonism patients. We show that mice carrying this mutation developed neurological manifestations similar to those of human patients...

Insulin is released by β cells in pulses regulated by calcium and phosphoinositide signaling. Here, we describe how transmembrane protein 24 (TMEM24) helps coordinate these signaling events. We showed that TMEM24 is an endoplasmic reticulum (ER)-anchored membrane protein whose reversible localization to ER-plasma membrane (PM) contacts is governed by phosphorylation and dephosphorylation in response to oscillations in cytosolic calcium. A lipid-binding module in TMEM24 transports the phosphatidylinositol 4,5-bisphosphate [PI(4,5)P2] precursor phosphatidylinositol between bilayers, allowing replenishment of PI(4,5)P2 hydrolyzed during signaling...

We analyzed the distribution, fate, and functional role of phosphatidylinositol 4-phosphate (PtdIns4P) during phagosome formation and maturation. To this end, we used genetically encoded probes consisting of the PtdIns4P-binding domain of the bacterial effector SidM. PtdIns4P was found to undergo complex, multiphasic changes during phagocytosis. The phosphoinositide, which is present in the plasmalemma before engagement of the target particle, is transiently enriched in the phagosomal cup. Soon after the phagosome seals, PtdIns4P levels drop precipitously due to the hydrolytic activity of Sac2 and phospholipase C, becoming undetectable for ∼10 min...

Lowe syndrome and Dent disease are two conditions that result from mutations of the inositol 5-phosphatase oculocerebrorenal syndrome of Lowe (OCRL) and share the feature of impaired kidney proximal tubule function. Genetic ablation of Ocrl in mice failed to recapitulate the human phenotypes, possibly because of the redundant functions of OCRL and its paralog type 2 inositol polyphosphate-5-phosphatase (INPP5B). Germline knockout of both paralogs in mice results in early embryonic lethality. We report that kidney tubule-specific inactivation of Inpp5b on a global Ocrl-knockout mouse background resulted in low molecular weight proteinuria, phosphaturia, and acidemia...

The large GTPase dynamin is the first protein shown to catalyze membrane fission. Dynamin and its related proteins are essential to many cell functions, from endocytosis to organelle division and fusion, and it plays a critical role in many physiological functions such as synaptic transmission and muscle contraction. Research of the past three decades has focused on understanding how dynamin works. In this review, we present the basis for an emerging consensus on how dynamin functions. Three properties of dynamin are strongly supported by experimental data: first, dynamin oligomerizes into a helical polymer; second, dynamin oligomer constricts in the presence of GTP; and third, dynamin catalyzes membrane fission upon GTP hydrolysis...

Endoplasmic reticulum (ER) stress and unfolded protein response (UPR) are highly activated in cancer and involved in tumorigenesis and resistance to anti-cancer therapy. UPR is becoming a promising target of anti-cancer therapies. Thus, the identification of UPR components that are highly expressed in cancer could offer new therapeutic opportunity.In this study, we demonstrate that Endoplasmic Reticulum Metallo Protease 1 (ERMP1) is broadly expressed in a high percentage of breast, colo-rectal, lung, and ovary cancers, regardless of their stage and grade...

SYNJ1 encodes a polyphosphoinositide phosphatase, synaptojanin 1, which contains two consecutive phosphatase domains and plays a prominent role in synaptic vesicle dynamics. Autosomal recessive inherited variants in SYNJ1 have previously been associated with two different neurological diseases: a recurrent homozygous missense variant (p.Arg258Gln) that abolishes Sac1 phosphatase activity was identified in three independent families with early onset parkinsonism, whereas a homozygous nonsense variant (p.Arg136*) causing a severe decrease of mRNA transcript was found in a single patient with intractable epilepsy and tau pathology...

VAP (VAPA and VAPB) is an evolutionarily conserved endoplasmic reticulum (ER)-anchored protein that helps generate tethers between the ER and other membranes through which lipids are exchanged across adjacent bilayers. Here, we report that by regulating PI4P levels on endosomes, VAP affects WASH-dependent actin nucleation on these organelles and the function of the retromer, a protein coat responsible for endosome-to-Golgi traffic. VAP is recruited to retromer budding sites on endosomes via an interaction with the retromer SNX2 subunit...

BACKGROUND: Colorectal cancer (CRC) is one of the major causes of cancer-associated mortality worldwide. The currently approved therapeutic agents have limited efficacy. METHODS: The atypical cadherin FAT1 was discovered as a novel CRC-associated protein by using a monoclonal antibody (mAb198.3). FAT1 expression was assessed in CRC cells by immunohistochemistry (IHC), immunoblots, flow cytometry and confocal microscopy. In addition, in vitro and in vivo tumour models were done to assess FAT1 potential value for therapeutic applications...

Efflux-mediated macrolide resistance due to mef(E) and mel, carried by the mega element, is common in Streptococcus pneumoniae, for which it was originally characterized, but it is rare in Streptococcus pyogenes In S. pyogenes, mega was previously found to be enclosed in Tn2009, a composite genetic element of the Tn916 family containing tet(M) and conferring erythromycin and tetracycline resistance. In this study, S. pyogenes isolates containing mef(E), apparently not associated with other resistance determinants, were examined to characterize the genetic context of mega...

Acute metabolic changes in plasma membrane (PM) lipids, such as those mediating signalling reactions, are rapidly compensated by homeostatic responses whose molecular basis is poorly understood. Here we show that the extended synaptotagmins (E-Syts), endoplasmic reticulum (ER) proteins that function as PtdIns(4,5)P2- and Ca(2+)-regulated tethers to the PM, participate in these responses. E-Syts transfer glycerolipids between bilayers in vitro, and this transfer requires Ca(2+) and their lipid-harbouring SMP domain...

Infection by herpes simplex virus type-1 (HSV-1) causes several diseases, ranging from cutaneous, oral and genital infections to fatal encephalitis. Despite the availability of antiviral therapies on the market, their efficacies are incomplete, and new cases of resistant strains arise, mainly in the immunocompromised, but also recently documented in immunocompetent patients. Over the last decades a lot has been discovered about the molecular basis of infection which has been of great benefit to the investigation of new anti-HSV-1 molecules...
