Sotaro Naoi et al.
The Journal of pediatrics, 164(5), 1219-1227 (2014-02-18)
To examine the effects of 4-phenylbutyrate (4PB) therapy in a patient with progressive familial intrahepatic cholestasis type 2. A homozygous c.3692G>A (p.R1231Q) mutation was identified in ABCB11. In vitro studies showed that this mutation decreased the cell-surface expression of bile
Viola Pomozi et al.
The Journal of investigative dermatology, 134(4), 946-953 (2013-12-20)
Mutations in the ABCC6 gene cause soft-tissue calcification in pseudoxanthoma elasticum (PXE) and, in some patients, generalized arterial calcification of infancy (GACI). PXE is characterized by late onset and progressive mineralization of elastic fibers in dermal, ocular, and cardiovascular tissues.
Elisabeth Kemter et al.
The Journal of biological chemistry, 289(15), 10715-10726 (2014-02-26)
Uromodulin (UMOD)-associated kidney disease (UAKD) belongs to the hereditary progressive ER storage diseases caused by maturation defects of mutant UMOD protein. Current treatments of UAKD patients are symptomatic and cannot prevent disease progression. Two in vitro studies reported a positive
Eun Sang Lee et al.
Biochemical and biophysical research communications, 450(2), 1005-1009 (2014-06-29)
Radiotherapy, which is one of the most effective approaches to the treatment of various cancers, plays an important role in malignant cell eradication in the pelvic area and abdomen. However, it also generates some degree of intestinal injury. Apoptosis in
Tao Luo et al.
Chemico-biological interactions, 225, 90-98 (2014-12-03)
Endoplasmic reticulum (ER) stress is implicated in the pathophysiology of various cardiovascular diseases, but the role of ER stress in cardiac rupture and/or remodeling after myocardial infarction (MI) is still unclear. Here we investigated whether ER stress plays a major
Nikhil N Kulkarni et al.
Molecular immunology, 63(2), 530-539 (2014-12-03)
Antimicrobial peptides (AMPs) constitute an indispensable arm of innate immunity against infectious microbes in humans. Induction of endogenous AMPs may become an alternative therapy against infections. Our previous studies have demonstrated phenylbutyrate (PBA) as a novel inducer of the AMPs
Gulab S Zode et al.
The Journal of clinical investigation, 124(5), 1956-1965 (2014-04-03)
Administration of glucocorticoids induces ocular hypertension in some patients. If untreated, these patients can develop a secondary glaucoma that resembles primary open-angle glaucoma (POAG). The underlying pathology of glucocorticoid-induced glaucoma is not fully understood, due in part to lack of
Wei Zeng et al.
Life sciences, 103(1), 15-24 (2014-03-22)
Endoplasmic reticulum (ER) stress is involved in the pathogenesis of atherosclerosis (AS). Endothelial cell (EC) dysfunction and monocyte migration to the subendothelium are considered to be essential manifestations of AS. We conducted this study to determine whether ER stress was
Hematopoietic stimulation by amifostine and sodium phenylbutyrate: what is the potential in MDS?

Ross M Tanis et al.
Biochimica et biophysica acta, 1853(1), 213-221 (2014-12-03)
While the 3T3-L1 adipocyte model is routinely used for the study of obesity and diabetes, the mitochondrial respiratory profile in normal versus high glucose has not been examined in detail. We matured adipocytes in normal (5mM) or high (30 mM)
Norihiko Yokoi et al.
Nature medicine, 21(1), 19-26 (2014-12-09)
Epilepsy is one of the most common and intractable brain disorders. Mutations in the human gene LGI1, encoding a neuronal secreted protein, cause autosomal dominant lateral temporal lobe epilepsy (ADLTE). However, the pathogenic mechanisms of LGI1 mutations remain unclear. We
Masayuki Koyama et al.
American journal of physiology. Heart and circulatory physiology, 306(9), H1314-H1323 (2014-03-13)
Pulmonary arterial hypertension (PAH) is characterized by vasoconstriction and vascular remodeling of the pulmonary artery (PA). Recently, endoplasmic reticulum (ER) stress and inappropriate adaptation through the unfolded protein response (UPR) have been disclosed in various types of diseases. Here we
