Yanli Ren et al.
Cancer letters, 390, 126-136 (2017-01-22)
Dyregulation of autophagy is implicated in human cancers and the mechanism details remains largely unclear. Herein we report the regulatory role of miR-638 in autophagy of esophageal squamous cell carcinoma (ESCC) and breast cancer cells. We found that miR-638 overexpression...
Ming Y Lee et al.
EMBO reports, 18(1), 48-60 (2016-11-10)
PEX13 is an integral membrane protein on the peroxisome that regulates peroxisomal matrix protein import during peroxisome biogenesis. Mutations in PEX13 and other peroxin proteins are associated with Zellweger syndrome spectrum (ZSS) disorders, a subtype of peroxisome biogenesis disorder characterized...
Yizhe Sun et al.
Cell death & disease, 8(8), e3031-e3031 (2017-10-20)
Autophagy is a highly inducible system of intracellular degradation that occurs in lysosomes or vacuoles. Transmembrane 74 (TMEM74) has been shown to induce autophagy. However, the mechanism by which TMEM74 stimulates autophagy and the impacts of TMEM74-induced autophagy on tumor...
Sweta Sikder et al.
The FEBS journal, 286(22), 4422-4442 (2019-06-07)
Multifunctional human transcriptional positive co-activator 4 (PC4) is a bona fide nonhistone component of the chromatin and plays a pivotal role in the process of chromatin compaction and functional genome organization. Knockdown of PC4 expression causes a drastic decompaction which leads...
Kevin A Guttenplan et al.
Cell reports, 31(12), 107776-107776 (2020-06-25)
Glaucoma is a neurodegenerative disease that features the death of retinal ganglion cells (RGCs) in the retina, often as a result of prolonged increases in intraocular pressure. We show that preventing the formation of neuroinflammatory reactive astrocytes prevents the death...
Xiaoyu Tian et al.
Autophagy, 16(5), 797-810 (2019-06-30)
Autophagosome and lysosome fusion is an important macroautophagy/autophagy process for cargo degradation, and SNARE proteins, including STX17, SNAP29, VAMP7 and VAMP8, are key players in this process. However, the manner in which this process is precisely regulated is poorly understood....
Anca M Paşca et al.
Nature methods, 12(7), 671-678 (2015-05-26)
The human cerebral cortex develops through an elaborate succession of cellular events that, when disrupted, can lead to neuropsychiatric disease. The ability to reprogram somatic cells into pluripotent cells that can be differentiated in vitro provides a unique opportunity to...
Yuying Fan et al.
Autophagy, 13(1), 41-56 (2016-10-30)
Autophagy is a housekeeping lysosomal degradation pathway important for cellular survival, homeostasis and function. Various disease models have shown that upregulation of autophagy may be beneficial to combat disease pathogenesis. However, despite several recently reported small-molecule screens for synthetic autophagy...
Zhenlu Li et al.
Cell death & disease, 9(5), 483-483 (2018-05-01)
Autophagy is an essential cytoprotective response against pathologic stresses that selectively degrades damaged cellular components. Impaired autophagy contributes to organ injury in multiple diseases, including ischemia/reperfusion (I/R), but the exact mechanism by which impaired autophagy is regulated remains unclear. Several...
Kohichi Matsunaga et al.
The Journal of cell biology, 190(4), 511-521 (2010-08-18)
Autophagy is a catabolic process that allows cells to digest their cytoplasmic constituents via autophagosome formation and lysosomal degradation. Recently, an autophagy-specific phosphatidylinositol 3-kinase (PI3-kinase) complex, consisting of hVps34, hVps15, Beclin-1, and Atg14L, has been identified in mammalian cells. Atg14L...
Ye Zhang et al.
The Journal of neuroscience : the official journal of the Society for Neuroscience, 34(36), 11929-11947 (2014-09-05)
The major cell classes of the brain differ in their developmental processes, metabolism, signaling, and function. To better understand the functions and interactions of the cell types that comprise these classes, we acutely purified representative populations of neurons, astrocytes, oligodendrocyte...
P S Yoder et al.
Journal of dairy science, 102(10), 8977-8985 (2019-08-20)
Extracellular amino acid profiles affect intracellular AA concentrations and profile as well as signaling proteins that regulate protein translation rates. The objective of this study was to assess whether various extracellular AA profiles and varied ratios of Lys to Met...
Somya Vats et al.
Molecular biology of the cell, 30(17), 2283-2295 (2019-06-13)
Autophagy is an evolutionarily conserved intracellular lysosomal degradation pathway. It is a multistep process involving de novo formation of double membrane autophagosomes that capture cytosolic constituents (cargo) and eventually fuse with lysosomes wherein the cargo gets degraded and resulting simpler...
