Abstract null null Spalt-like transcription factors (SALLs) are evolutionarily conserved proteins that participate in embryonic development. Four members of the SALL family, SALL1, SALL2, SALL3, and SALL4, are involved in cellular apoptosis, angiogenesis, invasion, and metastasis of tumors. We used the TCGA pan-cancer data to conduct a comprehensive analysis of SALL genes. High heterogeneity in the expression of these genes was observed across various cancers, SALL1 and SALL2 were downregulated,...

During fetal development, the barrier function of the fetal skin is developed under specific conditions for epidermis formation. In keratinocyte differentiation, the well-orchestrated production and modification of various structural proteins are induced. We assessed the epidermal barrier function in different fetal stages by evaluating the enzymatic activity of cross-linking proteins, transglutaminases, and the permeation of fluorescence dye in the stained epidermal sections. During days 15.5-1...
Abstract null null Glomerular podocytes are a target for the actions of insulin. Accumulating evidence indicates that exposure to nutrient overload induces insulin resistance in these cells, manifested by abolition of the stimulatory effect of insulin on glucose uptake. Numerous recent studies have investigated potential mechanisms of the induction of insulin resistance in podocytes. High glucose concentrations stimulated reactive oxygen species production through NADPH oxidase activation, decre...

Abstract null null Impaired endothelium-mediated vasodilation and/or increased sensitivity to vasoconstrictors lead to vascular smooth muscle cell (VSMC) dysfunction in individuals with diabetes. Diabetic nephropathy is associated with a considerably higher risk of cardiovascular disease and death than their nondiabetic counterparts. We studied the activity of Cullin 3 RING ubiquitin ligase (CRL3) and its substrates in mice using an intraperitoneal injection of streptozotocin (STZ) and db/db mic...

Abstract null null Circular dorsal ruffles (CDRs) are a kind of special ring-shaped membrane structure rich in F-actin, it is highly involved in the invasion-metastasis of tumor. Shear stress is one of the biophysical elements that affects the fate of tumor cells. However, how shear stress contributes to the CDRs formation is still unclear. In this study, we found that shear stress stimulated the formation of CDRs and promoted the migration of human breast MDA-MB-231 carcinoma cells. Integrin-li...

Abstract null null Cytochrome c (Cytc) is a multifunctional protein associated with electron shuttling in the inner membrane of mitochondria and also involving in the apoptotic pathway. It has been identified that mutations located in the flexible central 40-57 Ω-loop including the naturally occurring G41S, Y48H, and A51V mutants, which are found in patients with thrombocytopenia 4, a platelet disorder, alter the structural properties of human Cytc (hCytc) that associated to enhanced peroxidase ...
Abstract null null Cancer cells can metabolize glutamine to replenish TCA cycle intermediates for cell survival. Glutaminase (GLS1) is over-expressed in multiple cancers, including colorectal cancer (CRC). However, the role of GLS1 in colorectal cancer development has not yet fully elucidated. In this study, we found that GLS1 levels were significantly increased in CRC cells. Knockdown of GLS1 by shRNAs as well as GLS1 inhibitor BPTES decreased DLD1 and SW480 cell proliferation, colony formation...
Abstract null null In erythropoietin (EPO)-producing HepG2 cells, we investigated the effect of trivalent chromium (Cr) on the promotion of EPO production and the induction of insulin resistance. Cr increased hypoxia-inducible factor (HIF)-1α protein, EPO mRNA expression and EPO protein levels in HepG2 cells. The effect of Cr on EPO production was inhibited by inhibition of proliferator-activated receptor γ (PPARγ). Insulin resistance was induced by culturing with insulin resistance induction me...

NAD+-linked isocitrate dehydrogenases (NAD-IDHs) catalyze the oxidative decarboxylation of isocitrate into α-ketoglutarate. Previously, we identified a novel phylogenetic clade including NAD-IDHs from several algae in the type II subfamily, represented by homodimeric NAD-IDH from Ostreococcus tauri (OtIDH). However, due to its lack of a crystalline structure, the molecular mechanisms of the ligand binding and catalysis of OtIDH are little known. Here, we elucidate four high-resolution crystal st...

Abstract null null FTY720 is an immunosuppressive agent which has been approved to treat multiple sclerosis (MS). The main object of the present study is to investigate whether FTY720 has the potential to induce the formation of neutrophil extracellular traps (NETs) in vitro. Using Sytox Green assay and fluorescence microscopy, our results showed that FTY720 trigged the NET formation. In contrast to classic NET formation induced by Phorbol 12-myristate 13-acetate (PMA), FTY720-induced NETs were ...
