Processing bodies (PBs) are ribonucleoprotein granules important for cytokine mRNA decay that are targeted for disassembly by many viruses. Kaposi's sarcoma-associated herpesvirus is the etiological agent of the inflammatory endothelial cancer, Kaposi's sarcoma, and a PB-regulating virus. The virus encodes kaposin B (KapB), which induces actin stress fibers (SFs) and cell spindling as well as PB disassembly. We now show that KapB-mediated PB disassembly requires actin rearrangements, RhoA effectors, and the mechanoresponsive transcription activator, YAP. Moreover, ectopic expression of active YAP or exposure of ECs to mechanical forces caused PB disassembly in the absence of KapB. We propose that the viral protein KapB activates a mechanoresponsive signaling axis and links changes in cell shape and cytoskeletal structures to enhanced inflammatory molecule expression using PB disassembly. Our work implies that cytoskeletal changes in other pathologies may similarly impact the inflammatory environment.

Selective autophagy receptors contribute to host defence by targeting intracellular microbes for degradation and fine-tuning inflammatory processes by directing the degradation of macromolecular immune signaling platforms. Processing bodies (PBs) are cytoplasmic ribonucleoprotein granules that control inflammation by silencing and/or degrading labile messenger RNAs (mRNAs) that encode inflammatory mediator proteins. PBs often disassemble in response to virus infection, which correlates with incr...

The Hippo signaling pathway is involved in the pathophysiology of various cardiovascular diseases. Yes-associated protein (YAP) and transcriptional enhancer activator domain (TEAD) transcriptional factors, the main transcriptional complex of the Hippo pathway, were recently identified as modulators of phenotypic switching of vascular smooth muscle cells (VSMCs). However, the intrinsic regulator of YAP/TEAD-mediated gene expressions involved in vascular pathophysiology remains to be elucidated. H...

Host nucleases are implicated in antiviral response through the processing of pathogen-derived nucleic acids. Among many host RNases, decapping enzymes DCP1 and 2, and 5′→3′ exonuclease XRN1, which are components of the RNA decay machinery, have been extensively studied in prokaryotes, plants, and invertebrates but less so in mammalian systems. As a result, the implication of XRN1 and DCPs in viral replication, in particular, the spatio-temporal dynamics during RNA viral infections remains elusi...

Cellular non-membranous RNA-granules, P-bodies (RNA processing bodies, PB) and stress granules (SG), are important components of the innate immune response to virus invasion. Mechanisms governing how a virus modulates PB formation remain elusive. Here, we report the important roles of GW182 and DDX6, but not Dicer, Ago2 and DCP1A, in PB formation, and that Kaposi’s sarcoma-associated herpesvirus (KSHV) lytic infection reduces PB formation through several specific interactions with viral RNA-bind...

Autophagy, besides ensuring energy metabolism and organelle renewal, is crucial for the biology of adult normal and cancer stem cells. However, it remains incompletely understood how autophagy connects to stemness factors and the nature of the microenvironmental signals that pattern autophagy in different cell types. Here we advance in these directions by reporting that YAP/TAZ transcriptionally control autophagy, being critical for autophagosomal degradation into autolysosomes. YAP/TAZ are down...

Abstract Basic research has shown that signal pathways play significant roles in the development and progression of endometriosis (EMS). We first reported that the Hippo-YAP (Yes-associated protein) pathway promotes cell proliferation and anti-apoptosis in endometrial stromal cells (ESCs) of EMS. Cell autophagy has been found to be involved in the endometrial regulation and the pathophysiology of EMS. We speculated that there may be an elaborate dialogue between Hippo-YAP and autophagy pathway i...

Summary Biological phase transitions form membrane-less organelles that generate distinct cellular environments. How molecules are partitioned between these compartments and the surrounding cellular space and the functional consequence of this localization is not well understood. Here, we report the localization of mRNA to stress granules (SGs) and processing bodies (PBs) and its effect on translation and degradation during the integrated stress response. Using single mRNA imaging in living huma...

Background. In the pathogenesis of atherosclerosis, a central role is represented by endothelial inflammation with influx of chemokine-mediated leukocytes in the vascular wall. Aim of this study was to analyze the effect of different shear stresses on endothelial gene expression and compute gene network involved in atherosclerotic disease, in particular to homeostasis, inflammatory cell migration, and apoptotic processes. Methods. HUVECs were subjected to shear stress of 1, 5, and 10 dyne/cm2 in...

: Endogenous adult cardiac regenerative machinery is not capable of replacing the lost cells following myocardial infarction, often leading to permanent alterations in structure-function-mechanical properties. Regenerative therapies based on delivering autologous stem cells within an appropriate 3D milieu could meet such demand, by enabling homing and directed differentiation of the transplanted cells into lost specialized cell populations. Since type I collagen is the predominant cardiac tissue...
