Calreticulin (CRT), a molecular chaperone in the endoplasmic reticulum (ER), plays a variety of roles in cell growth, differentiation, apoptosis, immunity, and cancer biology. It has been reported that CRT is expressed in the human placenta, although its function in placental development is poorly understood. Appropriate invasion of extravillous trophoblasts (EVTs) into the maternal decidua is necessary for successful pregnancy. The objective of the present study was to investigate the expression and functional role of CRT in EVTs by utilizing the human EVT cell line HTR8/SVneo, in which CRT gene expression was knocked down...

It is known that endoplasmic reticulum (ER) stress in cells and extracellular vesicles (EVs) plays a significant role in cancer cells, therefore the evaluation of compounds that can regulate ER stress and EV secretion would be a suitable system for further screening and development of new drugs. In this study, we evaluated chemical chaperones derived from natural products based on monitoring Bip/GRP78 promoter activity during cancer cell growth, at the level of the single cell, by a bioluminescence microscopy system that had several advantages compared with fluorescence imaging...

Toll-like receptor (TLR)-7 is an endosomal innate immune sensor capable of detecting single-stranded ribonucleic acid. TLR7-mediated induction of type I interferon and other inflammatory cytokine production is important in antiviral immune responses. Furthermore, altered TLR7 expression levels are implicated in various autoimmune disorders, indicating a key role for this receptor in modulating inflammation. This review is focused on the regulation of TLR7 expression and localization compared to that of the other endosomal TLRs: TLR3, 8, and 9...

Newly synthesized proteins engage molecular chaperones that assist folding. Their progress is monitored by quality control systems that target folding errors for degradation. Paradoxically, chaperones that promote folding also direct unfolded polypeptides for degradation. Hence, a mechanism was previously hypothesized that prevents the degradation of actively folding polypeptides. In this study, we show that a conserved endoplasmic reticulum (ER) membrane protein complex, consisting of Slp1 and Emp65 proteins, performs this function in the ER lumen...

Calnexin is a type 1 integral endoplasmic reticulum membrane molecular chaperone with an endoplasmic reticulum luminal chaperone domain and a highly conserved C-terminal domain oriented to the cytoplasm. Fabp5 is a cytoplasmic protein that binds long-chain fatty acids and other lipophilic ligands. Using a yeast two-hybrid screen, immunoprecipitation, microscale thermophoresis analysis and cellular fractionation, we discovered that Fabp5 interacts with the calnexin cytoplasmic C-tail domain at the endoplasmic reticulum...

N‑acetylcysteine (NAC), a precursor of glutathione, is a widely used thiol‑containing antioxidant and modulator of the intracellular redox state. Our previous study demonstrated that excess reduced glutathione (GSH) from NAC treatment paradoxically led to a reduction in glutathione redox potential, increased mitochondrial oxidation and caused cytotoxicity at lower reactive oxygen species levels in H9c2 cells. However, no detailed data are available on the molecular mechanisms of NAC‑induced cytotoxicity on H9c2 cells...

Binding immunoglobulin protein (BiP) is a molecular chaperone important for the folding of numerous proteins, which include millions of immunoglobulins in human body. It also plays a key role in the unfolded protein response (UPR) in the endoplasmic reticulum. Free radical generation is a common phenomenon that occurs in cells under healthy as well as under stress conditions such as ageing, inflammation, alcohol consumption, and smoking. These free radicals attack the cell membranes and generate highly reactive lipid peroxidation products such as 4-oxononenal (4-ONE)...

Neuronal cell death induced by an accumulation of amyloid beta (Aβ) peptides, which are pathogenic molecules for Alzheimer's disease, is closely related with endoplasmic reticulum (ER) stress. In the ER stress condition, part of the ER resident chaperones is known to be translocated to another cellular location, such as the cell surface. The ER chaperone 78-kDa glucose-regulated protein (GRP78), which shows ATP-dependent chaperone activity, also shows translocation to the cell surface. In this study, we examined the influence of GRP78 on Aβ fibrillation in the presence or absence of ATP...

Hedgehog (Hh) signaling plays an important role in the viability maintenance of hepatic stellate cells (HSC). HSCs have been identified as the major profibrogenic cells in the liver. The present study revealed that a novel Hh antagonist GANT61 induced apoptosis in the activated human hepatic stellate cell line LX-2 cells, as it dose-dependently caused mitochondrial inner transmembrane potential (ΔΨm) loss and caspase-3 cleavage. Autophagic flux was markedly increased after GANT61 treatment in LX-2 cells...

Molecular chaperones are pivotal in folding and degradation of the cellular proteome but their impact on the conformational dynamics of near-native membrane proteins with disease relevance remains unknown. Here we report the effect of chaperone activity on the functional conformation of the temperature-sensitive mutant cystic fibrosis channel (∆F508-CFTR) at the plasma membrane and after reconstitution into phospholipid bilayer. Thermally induced unfolding at 37 °C and concomitant functional inactivation of ∆F508-CFTR are partially suppressed by constitutive activity of Hsc70 and Hsp90 chaperone/co-chaperone at the plasma membrane and post-endoplasmic reticulum compartments in vivo, and at single-molecule level in vitro, indicated by kinetic and thermodynamic remodeling of the mutant gating energetics toward its wild-type counterpart...

PURPOSE: The glucose-regulated protein 78 (GRP78), also referred to as immunoglobulin heavy chain binding protein (BiP) (BiP/GRP78), is a major molecular chaperone in the endoplasmic reticulum (ER) and is extensively expressed in human neoplasms. Although the enhanced expression of BiP/GRP78 has been described to be associated with poor prognosis in gastric cancer (GC), details regarding its prognostic significance remain unclear. The aim of this study was to elucidate the prognostic role of BiP/GRP78 in patients with GC...

Protein disulfide isomerase (PDI) has diverse functions in the endoplasmic reticulum as catalyst of redox transfer, disulfide isomerization and oxidative protein folding, as molecular chaperone and in multi-subunit complexes. It interacts with an extraordinarily wide range of substrate and partner proteins, but there is only limited structural information on these interactions. Extensive evidence on the flexibility of PDI in solution is not matched by any detailed picture of the scope of its motion. A new rapid method for simulating the motion of large proteins provides detailed molecular trajectories for PDI demonstrating extensive changes in the relative orientation of its four domains, great variation in the distances between key sites and internal motion within the core ligand-binding domain...

Lymphatic filariasis results in an altered lymphatic system and the abnormal enlargement of body parts, causing pain, serious disability and social stigma. Effective vaccines are still not available nowadays, drugs against the disease is required. Protein disulfide isomerase (PDI) is an essential catalyst of the endoplasmic reticulum which is involved in folding and chaperone activities in different biological systems. Here, we report the enzymatic characterization of a Brugia malayi Protein disulfide isomerase (BmPDI), which was expressed and purified from Escherichia coli BL21 (DE3)...

Hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC) is one of the most difficult cancers to treat owing to the lack of effective chemotherapeutic methods. Sorafenib, the first-line and only available treatment for HCC, extends patient overall survival by several months, with a response rate below 10%. Thus, the identification of an agent that enhances the anticancer effect of sorafenib is critical for the development of therapeutic options for HCC. Endoplasmic reticulum (ER) stress response is one of the methods of sorafenib-induced cell death...

Endoplasmic reticulum (ER) is a subcellular organelle involved in protein folding and processing. ER stress constitutes a cellular process characterized by accumulation of misfolded proteins, impaired lipid metabolism and induction of inflammatory responses. ER stress has been suggested to be involved in several human pathologies, including neurodegenerative diseases and obesity. Different studies have shown that both neurodegenerative diseases and obesity trigger similar cellular responses to ER stress. Moreover, both diseases are assessed in astrocytes as evidences suggest these cells as key regulators of brain homeostasis...

Heat shock proteins (Hsp) are molecular chaperones that are responsible for protein folding and maintenance of cellular homeostasis. Hsp90, an important member of HSP family, has an important role in breast cancer. Glucose-regulated protein 94 (Grp94) is the endoplasmic reticulum paralog of Hsp90 encoded by Hsp90B1 gene. To test if this protein is overexpressed in dogs with mammary tumor, we estimated and compared its serum levels in healthy dogs and that of dogs with mammary tumors. Hsp90B1 mRNA expression was measured in tumorous and healthy mammary tissues (from age- and breed-matched dogs) by real-time PCR...

The cellular environment of the mammalian heart constantly is challenged with environmental and intrinsic pathological insults, which affect the proper folding of proteins in heart failure. The effects of damaged or misfolded proteins on the cell can be profound and result in a process termed "proteotoxicity". While proteotoxicity is best known for its role in mediating the pathogenesis of neurodegenerative diseases such as Alzheimer's disease, its role in human heart failure also has been recognized. The UPR involves three branches, including PERK, ATF6, and IRE1...

Protein quality control in the early secretory pathway is a ubiquitous eukaryotic mechanism for adaptation to endoplasmic reticulum (ER) stress. An ER molecular chaperone, immunoglobulin heavy chain-binding protein (BiP), is one of the essential components in this process. BiP interacts with nascent proteins to facilitate their folding. BiP also plays an important role in preventing aggregation of misfolded proteins and regulating the ER stress response when cells suffer various injuries. BiP is a member of the 70-kDa heat shock protein (HSP70) family of molecular chaperones that resides in the ER...

Paraoxonase-2 (PON-2) is a membrane-bound lactonase with unique anti-oxidative and anti-atherosclerotic properties. PON-2 shares key structural elements with MEC-6, an endoplasmic reticulum resident molecular chaperone in Caenorhabditis elegans MEC-6 modulates the expression of a mechano-transductive ion channel comprised of MEC-4 and MEC-10 in touch receptor neurons. Because pon-2 mRNA resides in multiple rat nephron segments, including aldosterone-sensitive distal nephron where the epithelial Na(+) channel (ENaC) is expressed, we hypothesized that PON-2 would similarly regulate ENaC expression...
