Cancer research, 74(17), 4922-4936 (2014-07-19)
Emerging results indicate that cancer stem-like cells contribute to chemoresistance and poor clinical outcomes in many cancers, including ovarian cancer. As epigenetic regulators play a major role in the control of normal stem cell differentiation, epigenetics may offer a useful

Mercury (Hg) is a bioaccumulating trace metal that globally circulates the atmosphere and waters in its elemental, inorganic and organic chemical forms. While Hg represents a notorious neurotoxicant, the underlying cellular pathways are insufficiently understood. We identify amyloid protein aggregation

Nucleic acid aptamer selection is a powerful strategy for the development of regulatory agents for molecular intervention. Accordingly, aptamers have proven their diligence in the intervention with serine protease activities, which play important roles in physiology and pathophysiology. Nonetheless, there

Infection and immunity, 83(4), 1523-1535 (2015-02-04)
Avoidance of innate immune defense is an important mechanism contributing to the pathogenicity of microorganisms. The fungal pathogen Candida albicans undergoes morphogenetic switching from the yeast to the filamentous hyphal form following phagocytosis by macrophages, facilitating its escape from the

In this study, we show that the role of nonmuscle myosin II (NMII)-B in front-back migratory cell polarity is controlled by a short stretch of amino acids containing five serines (1935-1941). This motif resides near the junction between the C
Nikki van Bel et al.
PloS one, 9(7), e103552-e103552 (2014-07-30)
The viral integrase (IN) is an essential protein for HIV-1 replication. IN inserts the viral dsDNA into the host chromosome, thereby aided by the cellular co-factor LEDGF/p75. Recently a new class of integrase inhibitors was described: allosteric IN inhibitors (ALLINIs).

Alterations in glutamatergic neurotransmission have been postulated to be a key pathophysiologic mechanism in schizophrenia. To evaluate hippocampal volumetric measures and neurometabolites in unmedicated patients with schizophrenia and the correlations between these markers. Our a priori hypothesis was that glutamate

Current glioblastoma (GB) small animal models for cranial radiation therapy (RT) use simple single beam technologies, which differ from the advanced conformal image-guided radiation techniques used in clinical practice. This technological disparity presents a major disadvantage for the development of

Interleukin-21 signaling is important for germinal center B-cell responses, isotype switching and generation of memory B cells. However, a role for IL-21 in antibody-mediated protection against pathogens has not been demonstrated. Here we show that IL-21 is produced by T

The invariant chain (CD74) mediates targeting of the MHCII complex to endosomal compartments, where CD74 undergoes degradation allowing MHCII to acquire peptides. We demonstrated recently that intramembrane proteolysis of the final membrane-bound N-terminal fragment (NTF) of CD74 is catalyzed by

Great challenges in transplantation of mesenchymal stem cells (MSCs) for treating ischemic diabetic ulcers (IDUs) are to find a suitable carrier and create a beneficial microenvironment. Brain-derived neurotrophic factor (BDNF), a member of neurotrophin family, is considered angiogenic and neuroprotective.

Microbes and infection, 16(7), 562-570 (2014-05-08)
In addition to antibodies, Th1-type T cell responses are also important for long-lasting protection against pertussis. However, upon immunization with the current acellular vaccines, many children fail to induce Th1-type responses, potentially due to immunomodulatory effects of some vaccine antigens
David A Magee et al.
Tuberculosis (Edinburgh, Scotland), 94(4), 441-450 (2014-06-03)
Despite sharing >99.9% genome sequence similarity at the nucleotide level, Mycobacterium tuberculosis and Mycobacterium bovis-the causative agents of human and bovine tuberculosis, respectively-exhibit distinct host preferences. M. bovis can cause disease in both cattle and humans yet rarely transmits between

TSH provokes expression of inflammatory genes in CD34(+) fibrocytes. These cells appear to infiltrate the orbit in Graves' disease (GD), where they putatively become the CD34(+) orbital fibroblast subset (GD-OF). This may have importance in solving the pathogenesis of thyroid-associated
Jian Yang et al.
Stem cells (Dayton, Ohio), 33(5), 1390-1404 (2014-12-30)
We previously demonstrated that coexpressing retinoic acid (RA) receptor gamma and liver receptor homolog-1 (LRH1 or NR5A2) with OCT4, MYC, KLF4, and SOX2 (4F) rapidly reprograms mouse embryonic fibroblast cells (MEFs) into induced pluripotent stem cells (iPSCs). Here, we further
