Heme (iron protoporphyrin IX) is an essential regulator conserved in all known organisms. We investigated the kinetics of intracellular accumulation of hemin (oxidized form) in human transformed proerythroid K562 cells using [14 C]-hemin and observed that it is time and temperature-dependent, affected by the presence of serum proteins, as well as the amphipathic/hydrophobic properties of hemin. Hemin-uptake exhibited saturation kinetics as a function of the concentration added, suggesting the in...
The TCF7L2 protein is a key transcriptional effector of the Wnt/β-catenin signaling pathway, regulating gene expression. It was initially identified in cancer research and embryologic developmental studies. Later, the TCF7L2 gene was linked to type 2 diabetes (T2D), implicating TCF7L2 and Wnt-signaling in metabolic disorders and homeostasis. In fact, TCF7L2-T2D variants confer the greatest relative risk for T2D, unquestionably predicting conversion to T2D in individuals with impaired glucose tol...
The lung is the first and most frequent organ to fail among sepsis patients. The mortality rate of sepsis-related acute lung injury (ALI) is high. Despite appropriate antimicrobial therapy, no treatment strategies are available for sepsis-induced ALI. Stem cell-mediated paracrine signaling is a potential treatment method for various diseases. This study aimed to examine the effects of induced pluripotent stem cell-derived conditioned medium (iPSC-CM) combined with antibiotics on ALI in a rat mod...

The loss of dermal white adipose tissue (dWAT) is vital to the formation of dermal fibrosis (DF), but the specific mechanism is not well understood. A few studies are reviewed to explore the role of dWAT in the formation of DF. Recent findings indicated that the adipocytes-to-myofibroblasts transition in dWAT reflects the direct contribution to the DF formation. While adipose-derived stem cells (ADSCs) contained in dWAT express antifibrotic cytokines, the loss of ADSCs leads to skin protection d...

Purinergic signaling is a necessary mechanism to trigger or even amplify cell communication. Its ligands, notably adenosine triphosphate (ATP) and adenosine, modulate specific membrane-bound receptors in virtually all human cells. Regardless of the stage of the pregnancy, cellular communication between maternal, placental, and fetal cells is the paramount mechanism to sustain its optimal status. In this review, we describe the crucial role of purinergic signaling on the regulation of the materna...

Acute myeloid leukemia (AML) is a common hematological disorder with heterogeneous nature that resulted from blocked myeloid differentiation and an enhanced number of immature myeloid progenitors. During several decades, different factors, including cytogenetic, genetic, and epigenetic have been reported to contribute to the pathogenesis of AML by inhibiting the differentiation and ensuring the proliferation of myeloid blast cells. Recently, long noncoding RNAs (lncRNAs) have been considered as ...

Leukocyte cell-derived chemotaxin-2 (LECT2 or LECT-2), also called chondromodulin II (ChM-II or CHM2) plays a versatile role in various tissues. It was first identified as a chemotactic factor to promote the migration of neutrophils. It was also reported as a hepatokine to regulate glucose metabolism, obesity, and nonalcoholic fatty liver disease. As a secreted factor, LECT2 binds to several cell surface receptors CD209a, Tie1, and Met to regulate inflammatory reaction, fibrogenesis, vascular in...

RASSF4 (Ras-association domain family 4) is a protein-coding gene, regarded as a tumor suppressor regulated by DNA methylation. However, RASSF4 acts as a "Janus" in cell fate: death and survival. This review article focuses on the regulatory mechanisms of RASSF4 on cell death and cell survival and puts forward a comprehensive analysis of the relevant signaling pathways. The participation of RASSF4 in the regulation of intracellular store-operated Ca2+ entry also affects cell survival. Moreover, ...

Kynureninase (KYNU) is a key enzyme in the tryptophan metabolism pathway with elevated expression in psoriatic lesions relative to normal skin. However, whether KYNU contributes to the pathogenesis of psoriasis remains unknown. We sought to investigate the role of KYNU in psoriasis and its possible regulation mechanism. In the results, KYNU is upregulated in psoriatic skin samples from patients or animal models compared with normal skin control which was assayed in psoriatic patient samples, IMQ...

We report a novel in vitro classification system that tracks microglial activation state and their potential neurotoxicity. Mixed live-cell imaging was used to characterize transition through distinct morphological phenotypes, production of reactive oxygen species (ROS), formation of reactive microglial aggregates, and subsequent cytokine production. Transwell cultures were used to determine microglial migration (control and lipopolysaccharide (LPS) treated) to glutamate pre-stressed or healthy ...
