LPL and endothelial lipase (EL) are associated with macrophages in human atherosclerotic lesions, and overexpression of LPL in mouse macrophages is associated with a greater extent of atherosclerosis. To investigate potential mechanisms by which macrophage-derived lipase expression may mediate proatherogenic

RNA interference constitutes a powerful tool for biological studies, but has also become one of the most challenging therapeutic strategies. However, small interfering RNA (siRNA)-based strategies suffer from their poor delivery and biodistribution. Cell-penetrating peptides (CPPs) have been shown to

Mechanisms that control lysosomal function are essential for cellular homeostasis. Lysosomes adapt in size and number to cellular needs but little is known about the underlying molecular mechanism. We demonstrate that the late endosomal/lysosomal multimeric BLOC-1-related complex (BORC) regulates the

Due to the broad toxic relevance of acrylamide, many measures have been taken since the 1900s. These measures increased day by day when acrylamide was discovered in foods in 2002, and its toxic spectrum was found to be wider than

Developmental neuroscience, 38(4), 264-276 (2016-09-27)
Iron deficiency (ID), with and without anemia, affects an estimated 2 billion people worldwide. ID is particularly deleterious during early-life brain development, leading to long-term neurological impairments including deficits in hippocampus-mediated learning and memory. Neonatal rats with fetal/neonatal ID anemia

The aim of this study was to investigate the role of miR-33-5p in abdominal aortic aneurysm progression, which regulated adenosine triphosphate-binding cassette transporter A1 (ABCA1)-mediated cholesterol efflux and lipid accumulation in THP-1 macrophage-derived foam cells through the PI3K/Akt pathway. Quantitative

Brain, behavior, and immunity, 80, 525-535 (2019-04-29)
Evidence is accumulating to suggest that viral infections and consequent viral-mediated neuroinflammation may contribute to the etiology of idiopathic Parkinson's disease. Moreover, viruses have been shown to influence α-synuclein oligomerization as well as the autophagic clearance of abnormal intra-cellular proteins

Nature, 541(7637), 417-420 (2017-01-13)
As malignant tumours develop, they interact intimately with their microenvironment and can activate autophagy, a catabolic process which provides nutrients during starvation. How tumours regulate autophagy in vivo and whether autophagy affects tumour growth is controversial. Here we demonstrate, using
