Tumor infiltrated type II (M2) macrophages promote tumorigenesis by suppressing immune clearance, promoting proliferation, and stimulating angiogenesis. Interestingly, macrophages were also found to enrich in small foci of altered hepatocytes containing liver tumor-initiating cells (TICs). However, whether and how TICs specifically recruit macrophages and the function of these macrophages in tumor initiation remain unknown due to technical difficulties. In this study, by generating genetically defined liver TICs, we demonstrate that TICs actively recruit M2 macrophages from as early as the single-cell stage...

The mechanisms underlying lymphocyte lineage stability and plasticity remain elusive. Recent work indicates that innate lymphoid cells (ILC) possess substantial plasticity. Whereas natural ILC2 (nILC2) produce type-2 cytokines, plastic inflammatory ILC2 (iILC2) can coproduce both type-2 cytokines and the ILC3-characteristic cytokine, IL-17. Mechanisms that elicit this lineage plasticity, and the importance in health and disease, remain unclear. In this study we show that iILC2 are potent inducers of airway inflammation in response to acute house dust mite challenge...

G protein-coupled estrogen receptor (GPER) is a novel estrogen-binding receptor involved in many pathological conditions, including cancer. In this study, we investigated the effect of GPER on hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC). Our data show GPER knockout in a diethylnitrosamine (DEN)-induced mouse tumor model significantly accelerated liver tumorigenesis, accompanied by enhanced immune cell infiltration, fibrosis, and the production of inflammatory factors, such as interleukin-6 (IL-6). We further delineated the function of GPER in macrophages and hepatic stellate cells (HSCs)...

Lack of efficient adjuvant therapy contributes to a high incidence of recurrence and metastasis of hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC). A novel therapeutic is required for adjuvant treatment of HCC. We developed a polymer-based nanosystem (ROSE) for functional gene therapy by synthesizing a supramolecular complex self-assembled from polycations and functional adamantyl modules. The ROSE system condensing tumor suppressor microRNA-34a (miR-34a) therapeutics becomes ROSE/miR-34a nanoparticles that could facilitate gene transfection in HCC cells with satisfied stability and efficiency, possibly due to proton sponge effect by polycations, PEGlyation protection, and controlled release by breakdown of disulfide bonds...

Pancreatic ductal adenocarcinoma (PDAC) is an aggressive and lethal cancer, with poor outcomes. Infection with the hepatitis B virus (HBV) may be associated as a worse prognosis for PDAC patients; however, the mechanisms involved in this process are unclear. We evaluated whether HBV infection leads to PDAC with a more aggressive phenotype, and attempted to elucidate the mechanisms involved. Clinicopathological data and outcomes from 64 patients with PDAC were collected and compared between serum HBsAg+ and HBsAg- patients...

Hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC) is notoriously refractory to chemotherapy because of its tendency to develop multi-drug resistance (MDR), whose various underlying mechanisms make it difficult to target. The calcium signalling pathway is associated with many cellular biological activities, and is also a critical player in cancer. However, its role in modulating tumour MDR remains unclear. In this study, stimulation by doxorubicin, hypoxia and ionizing radiation was used to induce MDR in HCC cells. A sustained aggregation of intracellular calcium was observed upon these stimuli, while inhibition of calcium signalling enhanced the cells' sensitivity to various drugs by attenuating epithelial-mesenchymal transition (EMT), Hif1-α signalling and DNA damage repair...

The epithelial-to-mesenchymal transition (EMT) is a process by which differentiated epithelial cells reprogram gene expression, lose their junctions and polarity, reorganize their cytoskeleton, increase cell motility and assume a mesenchymal morphology. Despite the critical functions of the microtubule (MT) in cytoskeletal organization, how it participates in EMT induction and maintenance remains poorly understood. Here we report that acetylated α-tubulin, which plays an important role in microtubule (MT) stabilization and cell morphology, can serve as a novel regulator and marker of EMT...

BACKGROUND: Pancreatic fistula (PF) is the most common significant complication after pancreaticoduodenectomy. Invagination and duct-to-mucosa anastomoses are anastomotic techniques that are commonly performed after pancreaticoduodenectomy. There are conflicting data on invagination vs duct-to-mucosa anastomoses about which is superior for minimizing the risk of PF. In addition, all previous studies involved multiple operating surgeons and failed to control for variation in surgeon expertise...

Organ shortage is a major issue faced by both transplant surgeons and patients. To enlarge the donor pool, marginal liver grafts are being increasingly used. In this paper, we present the case of a patient in whom a polycystic liver was successfully transplanted from a donor after brain and cardiac death. To our knowledge, this is the first successful case of liver transplantation using polycystic liver from a donation after brain and cardiac death.

Pancreatic cancer has a poor prognosis and few effective treatments. The failure of treatment is partially due to the high heterogeneity of cancer cells within the tumor. T cells target and kill cancer cells by the specific recognition of cancer-associated antigens. In this study, T cells from primary tumor and blood of sixteen patients with pancreatic cancer were characterized by deep sequencing. T cells from blood of another eight healthy volunteers were also studied as controls. By analyzing the complementary determining region 3 (CDR3) gene sequence, we found no significant differences in the T cell receptor (TCR) repertoires between patients and healthy controls...

Organ size determination is one of the most intriguing unsolved mysteries in biology. Aberrant activation of the major effector and transcription co-activator YAP in the Hippo pathway causes drastic organ enlargement in development and underlies tumorigenesis in many human cancers. However, how robust YAP activation is achieved during organ size control remains elusive. Here we report that the YAP signaling is sustained through a novel microRNA-dependent positive feedback loop. miR-130a, which is directly induced by YAP, could effectively repress VGLL4, an inhibitor of YAP activity, thereby amplifying the YAP signals...

Since pro-inflammatory cytokine IL-21 and its receptor (IL-21R) are closely involved in regulating both innate and adaptive immune responses, it is conceivable that they may play important roles in the field of organ transplantation. IL-21/IL21-R regulates immune activities of CD8+ T cells, Tfh cells, Th17 cells, B cells, NK cells, dendritic cells and stimulates dendritic cells to produce high level of IL-6, TNF-alpha, and CCL2. However, their roles and underlying mechanisms remain obscure. Our present study is the first describing the role of IL-21 signaling pathway in transplant biology...
