Abstract Tyrosine kinase inhibitors (TKIs) are widely utilized in clinical practice to treat carcinomas, but secondary tumor resistance during chronic treatment can be problematic. AKR1B1 and AKR1B10 of the aldo-keto reductase (AKR) superfamily are highly expressed in cancer cells and are believed to be involved in drug resistance. The aim of this study was to understand how TKI treatment of chronic myelogenous leukemia (CML) cells changes their glucose metabolism and if inhibition of AKRs can s...

Despite progress in the use of hyperthermia in clinical practice, the thermosensitivity of cancer cells is poorly understood. In a previous study, we found that sensitivity to hyperthermia varied between ovarian and uterine cancer cell lines. Upon hyperthermia, glycolytic enzymes decreased in hyperthermia-resistant SKOV3 cells. However, the mechanisms of glycolysis inhibition and their relationship with thermoresistance remain to be explored. In this study, metabolomic analysis indicated the dow...

Individuals vary in their susceptibility to adverse reactions to medications, some of which can be potentially life-threatening. Idiosyncratic drug toxicity (IDT) has been shown to be strongly associated to specific polymorphisms in genes encoding human leukocyte antigens (HLAs) by recent genome-wide association studies. However, the pathogenic mechanisms governing such reactions remain unclarified, at least in part because of a lack of suitable experimental animal models to assess IDT. This rev...

Various types of transgenic mice carrying either class I or II human leukocyte antigen (HLA) molecules are readily available, and reports describing their use in a variety of studies have been publ...

: Bone homeostasis is maintained by bone remodeling, which involves continuous bone resorption by osteoclasts and bone formation by osteoblasts. Dysregulation of bone turnover, caused by osteoclast overactivation, causes destructive bone diseases. However, the mechanisms underlying the maintenance of osteoclast differentiation and activation are unclear. Herein, we examined the role of autophagy in the maintenance of osteoclast differentiation and maturation. We used in vitro and in vivo assays ...

The interaction of human leukocyte antigen (HLA) with specific drugs is associated with delayed-type hypersensitivity reactions, which cause severe cutaneous toxicity. Such interactions induce structural alterations in HLA complexes via several different mechanisms such as the hapten theory, p-i concept, and altered peptide repertoire model, leading to the activation of cytotoxic T cells. To date, comprehensive detection of such structural alterations in preclinical studies has been difficult. H...

: CpG oligodeoxynucleotide (CpG-ODN) is a Toll-like receptor 9 (TLR9) agonist that can induce innate immune responses. In a previous study, flucloxacillin (FLUX; 100 mg/kg, gavage)-induced liver injury in mice was enhanced by co-administration of CpG-ODN (40 μg/mouse, intraperitoneally). In this study, the mechanism of CpG-ODN sensitization to FLUX-induced liver injury was further investigated in mice inhibited of Kupffer cells (KCs) function by gadolinium chloride (GdCl3; 10 mg/kg, intravenousl...

Most cancer cells rely on glycolysis to generate ATP, even when oxygen is available. However, merely inhibiting the glycolysis is insufficient for the eradication of cancer cells. One main reason for this is that cancer cells have the potential to adapt their metabolism to their environmental conditions. In this study, we investigated how cancer cells modify their intracellular metabolism when glycolysis is suppressed, using PANC-1 pancreatic cancer cells and two other solid tumor cell lines, A5...
