BACKGROUND: Alexander disease (AxD) is a rare disease caused by mutations in the gene encoding glial fibrillary acidic protein (GFAP). The disease is characterized by presence of GFAP aggregates in the cytoplasm of astrocytes and loss of myelin. OBJECTIVES: Determine the effect of AxD-related mutations on adult neurogenesis. METHODS: We transfected different types of mutant GFAP into neurospheres using the nucleofection technique. RESULTS: We find that mutations may cause coexpression of GFAP and NG2 in neurosphere cultures, which would inhibit the differentiation of precursors into oligodendrocytes and thus explain the myelin loss occurring in the disease...

Purpose: We used a light-induced retinal degeneration animal model to investigate possible roles of heat shock protein 27 (HSP27) in retinal/photoreceptor protection. Methods: Sprague-Dawley rats were used for the light-induced retinal degeneration animal model. The histology of eye sections was observed for morphologic changes in the retina. Cell apoptosis was examined in each group using the terminal deoxynucleotidyl transferase dUTP nick-end labeling assay, and electroretinography was used to evaluate retinal function...

Hypothermia causes systemic cellular stress. The pituitary gland is an endocrine gland and plays an important role in thermoregulation. When the core body temperature drops, the pituitary gland is activated by stimulation of hypothalamic hormones. In this study, we investigated morphological alterations of the pituitary gland in cases of fatal hypothermia. Several morphological alterations of the anterior lobe of the pituitary gland, such as hemorrhage, vacuolization, and hyperemia, have been previously described in fatal hypothermia...

Porcine epidemic diarrhea virus (PEDV), is the etiological agent of porcine epidemic diarrhea virus (PED), causes high mortality with severe vomiting, diarrhea, and dehydration in swine farms. In this study, the PEDV strain 85-7 could be proliferated effectively in MARC-145 cells, and caused a distinct inhibition of the expression of interferon-β (IFN-β, encoded by IFNB1), which suggested that a full understanding how this virus manipulates the host immune responses is critical in the fight against the spread of PEDV...

AIMS: Heat shock proteins (HSPs) are a group of molecules induced by a variety of environmental and pathophysiologic stresses, including cancer. HSPs are implicated in the regulation of apoptosis and immunity in neoplasm. Transcription factor heat shock factor1 (HSF1) acts as the master regulator to control HSP expression, and therefore is involved in tumorigenesis. The purpose of this study was to evaluate the expression and clinicopathologic relevance of HSPs and HSF1 in clear cell renal cell carcinoma (ccRCC)...

Heat shock protein 27 (Hsp27) is a putative biomarker and therapeutic target in atherosclerosis. This study was to explore the potential mechanisms underlying Hsp27 effects on ATP-binding cassette transporter A1 (ABCA1) expression and cellular cholesterol efflux. THP-1 macrophage-derived foam cells were infected with adenovirus to express wild-type Hsp27, hyper-phosphorylated Hsp27 mimic (3D Hsp27), antisense Hsp27 or hypo-phosphorylated Hsp27 mimic (3A Hsp27). Wild-type and 3D Hsp27 were found to up-regulate ABCA1 mRNA and protein expression and increase cholesterol efflux from cells...

Sphingosine 1-phosphate (S1P) is as an extracellular factor that acts as a potent lipid mediator by binding to specific receptors, S1P receptors (S1PRs). However, the precise role of S1P in human platelets that express S1PRs has not yet been fully clarified. We previously reported that heat shock protein 27 (HSP27) is released from human platelets accompanied by its phosphorylation stimulated by collagen. In the present study, we investigated the effect of S1P on the collagen-induced platelet activation. S1P pretreatment markedly attenuated the collagen-induced aggregation...

Neuroblastoma is the cause of >15% of cancer-associated mortality in children in the USA. Despite aggressive treatment regimens, the long-term survival rate for these children remains at <40%. The current study demonstrates that secreted protein acidic and rich in cysteine (SPARC) suppresses radiation-induced expression of heat shock protein 27 (HSP27) in vivo and suppresses mitochondrial membrane potential (Δψ) in neuroblastoma cells. In the present study, the overexpression of SPARC in SK-N-BE(2) and NB1691 neuroblastoma cell lines suppresses radiation-induced G2M cell cycle arrest, proliferation, HSP27 expression (in vitro and in vivo) and induces the collapse of the mitochondrial Δψ...

Mutations in the small heat shock protein Hsp27, encoded by the HSPB1 gene, have been shown to cause Charcot Marie Tooth Disease type 2 (CMT-2) or distal hereditary motor neuropathy (dHMN). Protein aggregation and axonal transport deficits have been implicated in the disease. In this study, we conducted analysis of bidirectional movements of mitochondria in primary motor neuron axons expressing wild type and mutant Hsp27. We found significantly slower retrograde transport of mitochondria in Ser135Phe, Pro39Leu and Arg140Gly mutant Hsp27 expressing motor neurons than in wild type Hsp27 neurons, although anterograde movement velocities remained normal...

When cells are exposed to heat shock and various other stresses, heat shock factor 1 (HSF1) is activated and the heat shock response (HSR) is elicited. To better understand the molecular regulation of the HSR, we used 2D-PAGE based proteome analysis to screen for heat shock-induced posttranslationally modified cellular proteins. Our analysis revealed that two protein spots typically present on 2D-PAGE gels and containing heterogeneous nuclear ribonucleoprotein K (hnRNP K) with trioxidized Cys132 disappeared after the heat shock treatment and reappeared during recovery, but the total amount of hnRNP K protein remained unchanged...

BACKGROUND: Gliomas are aggressive brain tumors with very high resistance to chemotherapy. Therefore, the aim of the present study was to investigate the effectiveness of sorafenib and Temozolomide in elimination of human glioma cells through apoptosis and autophagy. METHODS: MOGGCCM (anaplastic astrocytoma) and T98G (glioblastoma multiforme) cell lines incubated with sorafenib and/or Temozolomide were used in the experiments. Cell morphology (ER stress, apoptosis, autophagy, and necrosis) was analyzed microscopically while apoptosis and mitochondrial membrane potential were assessed with flow cytometry...

The mammalian target of rapamycin (mTOR) and mitogen-activated protein kinases (MAPKs) pathways are frequently upregulated in cancer. Some authors have reported that some antioxidant molecules could be potential inhibitors of these pathways. Therefore, we investigated the in vitro antitumor effect of guaraná by inhibiting the AKT/mTOR/S6K and MAPKs pathways. Colorectal and breast cancer cell lineages, HT-29 and MCF-7 cells, respectively, were exposed to different guaraná concentrations (0.1, 1, 10, and 100 µg/mL) as well as its main bioactive molecule, caffeine, in proportional concentrations to those found in the extract...

In mammals, small heat-shock proteins (sHSPs) typically assemble into interconverting, polydisperse oligomers. The dynamic exchange of sHSP oligomers is regulated, at least in part, by molecular interactions between the α-crystallin domain and the C-terminal region (CTR). Here we report solution-state nuclear magnetic resonance (NMR) spectroscopy investigations of the conformation and dynamics of the disordered and flexible CTR of human HSP27, a systemically expressed sHSP. We observed multiple NMR signals for residues in the vicinity of proline 194, and we determined that, while all observed forms are highly disordered, the extra resonances arise from cis-trans peptidyl-prolyl isomerization about the G193-P194 peptide bond...

Many types of cancer express high levels of heat shock proteins (HSPs) that are molecular chaperones regulating protein folding and stability ensuring protection of cells from potentially lethal stress. HSPs in cancer cells promote survival, growth and spreading even in situations of growth factors deprivation by associating with oncogenic proteins responsible for cell transformation. Hence, it is not surprising that the identification of potent inhibitors of HSPs, notably HSP90, has been the primary research focus, in recent years...

Extracellular vesicles (EVs) serve an important function as mediators of intercellular communication. Exercise is protective for the heart, although the signaling mechanisms that mediate this cardioprotection have not been fully elucidated. Here using nano-flow cytometry, we found a rapid increase in plasma EVs in human subjects undergoing exercise stress testing. We subsequently identified that serum EVs were increased by ~1.85-fold in mice after 3-week swimming. Intramyocardial injection of equivalent quantities of EVs from exercised mice and non-exercised controls provided similar protective effects against acute ischemia/reperfusion (I/R) injury in mice...

BACKGROUND: The platelet (PLT) storage lesion is in part caused by the collection and/or production process. Pathogen inactivation (PI) further accelerates its development leading to a reduced in vitro PLT functionality and hence quality. Although the treatment of PLT concentrates (PCs) with riboflavin and ultraviolet light PI should occur within 22 hours of collection, in this study the impact of treatment timing on in vitro PLT quality was investigated. STUDY DESIGN AND METHODS: Apheresis PCs were PI treated on the day of production or on Days 1, 3, or 4 of storage or left untreated as control...

The penicillinase-resistant antibiotics (PRAs), especially the highly prescribed flucloxacillin, caused frequent liver injury via mechanisms that remain largely non-elucidated. We first showed that flucloxacillin, independently of cytotoxicity, could exhibit cholestatic effects in human hepatocytes in the absence of an immune reaction, that were typified by dilatation of bile canaliculi associated with impairment of the Rho-kinase signaling pathway and reduced bile acid efflux. Then, we analyzed the sequential molecular events involved in flucloxacillin-induced cholestasis...
