Dominant negative murine serum response factor: alternative splicing within the activation domain inhibits transactivation of serum response factor binding targets. (1/241)

Primary transcripts encoding the MADS box superfamily of proteins, such as MEF2 in animals and ZEMa in plants, are alternatively spliced, producing several isoformic species. We show here that murine serum response factor (SRF) primary RNA transcripts are alternatively spliced at the fifth exon, deleting approximately one-third of the C-terminal activation domain. Among the different muscle types examined, visceral smooth muscles have a very low ratio of SRFDelta5 to SRF. Increased levels of SRFDelta5 correlates well with reduced smooth muscle contractile gene activity within the elastic aortic arch, suggesting important biological roles for differential expression of SRFDelta5 variant relative to wild-type SRF. SRFDelta5 forms DNA binding-competent homodimers and heterodimers. SRFDelta5 acts as a naturally occurring dominant negative regulatory mutant that blocks SRF-dependent skeletal alpha-actin, cardiac alpha-actin, smooth alpha-actin, SM22alpha, and SRF promoter-luciferase reporter activities. Expression of SRFDelta5 interferes with differentiation of myogenic C2C12 cells and the appearance of skeletal alpha-actin and myogenin mRNAs. SRFDelta5 repressed the serum-induced activity of the c-fos serum response element. SRFDelta5 fused to the yeast Gal4 DNA binding domain displayed low transcriptional activity, which was complemented by overexpression of the coactivator ATF6. These results indicate that the absence of exon 5 might be bypassed through recruitment of transcription factors that interact with extra-exon 5 regions in the transcriptional activating domain. The novel alternatively spliced isoform of SRF, SRFDelta5, may play an important regulatory role in modulating SRF-dependent gene expression.  (+info)

Mammalian transcription factor ATF6 is synthesized as a transmembrane protein and activated by proteolysis in response to endoplasmic reticulum stress. (2/241)

The unfolded protein response (UPR) controls the levels of molecular chaperones and enzymes involved in protein folding in the endoplasmic reticulum (ER). We recently isolated ATF6 as a candidate for mammalian UPR-specific transcription factor. We report here that ATF6 constitutively expressed as a 90-kDa protein (p90ATF6) is directly converted to a 50-kDa protein (p50ATF6) in ER-stressed cells. Furthermore, we showed that the most important consequence of this conversion was altered subcellular localization; p90ATF6 is embedded in the ER, whereas p50ATF6 is a nuclear protein. p90ATF6 is a type II transmembrane glycoprotein with a hydrophobic stretch in the middle of the molecule. Thus, the N-terminal half containing a basic leucine zipper motif is oriented facing the cytoplasm. Full-length ATF6 as well as its C-terminal deletion mutant carrying the transmembrane domain is localized in the ER when transfected. In contrast, mutant ATF6 representing the cytoplasmic region translocates into the nucleus and activates transcription of the endogenous GRP78/BiP gene. We propose that ER stress-induced proteolysis of membrane-bound p90ATF6 releases soluble p50ATF6, leading to induced transcription in the nucleus. Unlike yeast UPR, mammalian UPR appears to use a system similar to that reported for cholesterol homeostasis.  (+info)

Activation of ATF6 and an ATF6 DNA binding site by the endoplasmic reticulum stress response. (3/241)

ATF6 is a member of the basic-leucine zipper family of transcription factors. It contains a transmembrane domain and is located in membranes of the endoplasmic reticulum. ATF6 has been implicated in the endoplasmic reticulum (ER) stress response pathway since it can activate expression of GRP78 and other genes induced by the ER stress response. ER stress appears to activate ATF6 by cleavage from the ER membrane and translocation to the nucleus. However, direct DNA binding by ATF6 had not been demonstrated. In this report, we have identified a consensus DNA binding sequence for ATF6. This site is related to but distinct from ATF1/CREB binding sites. The site was placed in a reporter gene and was specifically activated by ATF6 overexpression and was strongly induced by the ER stress response. A dominant negative form of ATF6 blocked ER stress induction of both ATF6 site and GRP78 reporter genes. We further found that GAL4-ATF6 could be activated by ER stress. These results demonstrate that ATF6 is a direct target of the ER stress response. A proximal sensor of the ER stress response, human IRE1 (hIRE1), was sufficient to activate the ATF6 reporter gene, while a dominant negative form of hIRE1 blocked ER stress activation, suggesting that hIRE1 is upstream of ATF6 in the ER stress signaling pathway.  (+info)

ATF6 as a transcription activator of the endoplasmic reticulum stress element: thapsigargin stress-induced changes and synergistic interactions with NF-Y and YY1. (4/241)

ATF6, a member of the leucine zipper protein family, can constitutively induce the promoter of glucose-regulated protein (grp) genes through activation of the endoplasmic reticulum (ER) stress element (ERSE). To understand the mechanism of grp78 induction by ATF6 in cells subjected to ER calcium depletion stress mediated by thapsigargin (Tg) treatment, we discovered that ATF6 itself undergoes Tg stress-induced changes. In nonstressed cells, ATF6, which contains a putative short transmembrane domain, is primarily associated with the perinuclear region. Upon Tg stress, the ATF6 protein level dropped initially but quickly recovered with the additional appearance of a faster-migrating form. This new form of ATF6 was recovered as soluble nuclear protein by biochemical fractionation, correlating with enhanced nuclear localization of ATF6 as revealed by immunofluorescence. Optimal ATF6 stimulation requires at least two copies of the ERSE and the integrity of the tripartite structure of the ERSE. Of primary importance is a functional NF-Y complex and a high-affinity NF-Y binding site that confers selectivity among different ERSEs for ATF6 inducibility. In addition, we showed that YY1 interacts with ATF6 and in Tg-treated cells can enhance ATF6 activity. The ERSE stimulatory activity of ATF6 exhibits properties distinct from those of human Ire1p, an upstream regulator of the mammalian unfolded protein response. The requirement for a high-affinity NF-Y site for ATF6 but not human Ire1p activity suggests that they stimulate the ERSE through diverse pathways.  (+info)

ATF6 activated by proteolysis binds in the presence of NF-Y (CBF) directly to the cis-acting element responsible for the mammalian unfolded protein response. (5/241)

Transcription of genes encoding molecular chaperones and folding enzymes in the endoplasmic reticulum (ER) is induced by accumulation of unfolded proteins in the ER. This intracellular signaling, known as the unfolded protein response (UPR), is mediated by the cis-acting ER stress response element (ERSE) in mammals. In addition to ER chaperones, the mammalian transcription factor CHOP (also called GADD153) is induced by ER stress. We report here that the transcription factor XBP-1 (also called TREB5) is also induced by ER stress and that induction of CHOP and XBP-1 is mediated by ERSE. The ERSE consensus sequence is CCAAT-N(9)-CCACG. As the general transcription factor NF-Y (also known as CBF) binds to CCAAT, CCACG is considered to provide specificity in the mammalian UPR. We recently found that the basic leucine zipper protein ATF6 isolated as a CCACG-binding protein is synthesized as a transmembrane protein in the ER, and ER stress-induced proteolysis produces a soluble form of ATF6 that translocates into the nucleus. We report here that overexpression of soluble ATF6 activates transcription of the CHOP and XBP-1 genes as well as of ER chaperone genes constitutively, whereas overexpression of a dominant negative mutant of ATF6 blocks the induction by ER stress. Furthermore, we demonstrated that soluble ATF6 binds directly to CCACG only when CCAAT exactly 9 bp upstream of CCACG is bound to NF-Y. Based on these and other findings, we concluded that specific and direct interactions between ATF6 and ERSE are critical for transcriptional induction not only of ER chaperones but also of CHOP and XBP-1.  (+info)

Identification of ERSE-II, a new cis-acting element responsible for the ATF6-dependent mammalian unfolded protein response. (6/241)

Herp is a 54-kDa membrane protein in the endoplasmic reticulum (ER). The mRNA expression level of Herp is increased by the accumulation of unfolded proteins in the ER. Transcriptional changes designed to deal with this type of ER stress is called the unfolded protein response (UPR). Most mammalian UPR-target genes encode ER-resident molecular chaperones: GRP78, GRP94, and calreticulin. The promoter regions of these genes contain a cis-acting ER stress response element, ERSE, with the consensus sequence of CCAAT-N(9)-CCACG. Under conditions of ER stress, p50ATF6 (the active form of the transcription factor, ATF6) binds to CCACG when CCAAT is bound by the general transcription factor, NF-Y/CBF. Here, we report the genomic structure of human Herp and the presence of a new ER stress response element, ERSE-II, in its promoter region. The gene for Herp consists of eight exons, localized to chromosome 16q12.2-13. The promoter region contains a single ERSE-like sequence. In reporter gene assays, disruption of this cis-element resulted in a partial reduction of the transcriptional response to ER stress, suggesting that the element is functional for the UPR. These results also suggest the involvement of additional elements in the UPR. Further analysis, using an optimized plasmid containing an mRNA-destabilizing sequence, revealed ERSE-II (ATTGG-N-CCACG) as the second ER stress response element. Interestingly, ERSE-II was also dependent on p50ATF6, in a manner similar to that of ERSE, despite the disparate structure. The strong induction of Herp mRNA by ER stress would be achieved by the cooperation of ERSE and ERSE-II.  (+info)

Endoplasmic reticulum stress-induced formation of transcription factor complex ERSF including NF-Y (CBF) and activating transcription factors 6alpha and 6beta that activates the mammalian unfolded protein response. (7/241)

The levels of molecular chaperones and folding enzymes in the endoplasmic reticulum (ER) are controlled by a transcriptional induction process termed the unfolded protein response (UPR). The mammalian UPR is mediated by the cis-acting ER stress response element (ERSE), the consensus sequence of which is CCAAT-N(9)-CCACG. We recently proposed that ER stress response factor (ERSF) binding to ERSE is a heterologous protein complex consisting of the constitutive component NF-Y (CBF) binding to CCAAT and an inducible component binding to CCACG and identified the basic leucine zipper-type transcription factors ATF6alpha and ATF6beta as inducible components of ERSF. ATF6alpha and ATF6beta produced by ER stress-induced proteolysis bind to CCACG only when CCAAT is bound to NF-Y, a heterotrimer consisting of NF-YA, NF-YB, and NF-YC. Interestingly, the NF-Y and ATF6 binding sites must be separated by a spacer of 9 bp. We describe here the basis for this strict requirement by demonstrating that both ATF6alpha and ATF6beta physically interact with NF-Y trimer via direct binding to the NF-YC subunit. ATF6alpha and ATF6beta bind to the ERSE as a homo- or heterodimer. Furthermore, we showed that ERSF including NF-Y and ATF6alpha and/or beta and capable of binding to ERSE is indeed formed when the cellular UPR is activated. We concluded that ATF6 homo- or heterodimers recognize and bind directly to both the DNA and adjacent protein NF-Y and that this complex formation process is essential for transcriptional induction of ER chaperones.  (+info)

ER stress induces cleavage of membrane-bound ATF6 by the same proteases that process SREBPs. (8/241)

ATF6 is a membrane-bound transcription factor that activates genes in the endoplasmic reticulum (ER) stress response. When unfolded proteins accumulate in the ER, ATF6 is cleaved to release its cytoplasmic domain, which enters the nucleus. Here, we show that ATF6 is processed by Site-1 protease (S1P) and Site-2 protease (S2P), the enzymes that process SREBPs in response to cholesterol deprivation. ATF6 processing was blocked completely in cells lacking S2P and partially in cells lacking S1P. ATF6 processing required the RxxL and asparagine/proline motifs, known requirements for S1P and S2P processing, respectively. Cells lacking S2P failed to induce GRP78, an ATF6 target, in response to ER stress. ATF6 processing did not require SCAP, which is essential for SREBP processing. We conclude that S1P and S2P are required for the ER stress response as well as for lipid synthesis.  (+info)

In response to the endoplasmic reticulum (ER) stress induced by herpes simplex virus type 1 (HSV-1) infection, host cells activate the unfolded protein response (UPR) to reduce the protein-folding burden in the ER. The regulation of UPR upon HSV-1 infection is complex, and the downstream effectors can be detrimental to viral replication. Therefore, HSV-1 copes with the UPR to create a beneficial environment for its replication. UPR has three branches, including protein kinase RNA (PKR)-like ER kinase (PERK), inositol-requiring enzyme 1 (IRE1), and activated transcription factor 6 (ATF6). IRE1α is the most conserved branch of UPR which has both RNase and kinase activities. Previous studies have shown that IRE1α RNase activity was inactivated during HSV-1 infection. However, the effect of the two activities of IRE1α on HSV-1 replication remains unknown. Results in this study showed that IRE1α expression was up-regulated during HSV-1 infection. We found that in HEC-1-A cells, increasing RNase ...
Grp78/BiP is a 78kDa protein located within the lumen of the endoplasmic reticulum (ER), where it helps store Ca2+ and acts particularly as a chaperone assisting in the folding and assembly of membrane-bound or secretory proteins. Recent evidence has implicated the protein as a sensor of ER malfunction, regulating the initiation of a signalling pathway, known as the ER stress response or Unfolded Protein Response (UPR). The work undertaken for this thesis has addressed the role of Grp78/BiP in the mammalian UPR signalling pathway and the consequent effects upon cell survival, programmed cell death, and cell cycle regulation during ER stress. Novel Grp78/BiP fluorescent and bioluminescent chimeric proteins were generated in order to study dynamic changes of EGFP-tagged Grp78/BiP proteins located in the cell. This approach simplified and facilitated the generation of stable cell lines over-expressing Grp78/BiP and provided a powerful tool for single cell analysis to help determine its role in ...

Specifically, our results confirmed direct targeting of miR-204 to the 3′UTRs of AP1S2, Bcl2l2, BIRC2, EDEM1, EZR, FZD1, M6PR, RAB22A, RAB40B, SERP1, TCF12, and TCF4 and demonstrated a significant decrease in the expression of Bcl2l2/Bcl-w, cIAP1/BIRC2, SERP1/RAMP4, M6PR, and EZR proteins induced by miR-204. Two of these genes, Bcl2l2/Bcl-w and cIAP1/BIRC2, are known to inhibit apoptosis. Bcl-w is a member of the Bcl-2 family, which inhibits apoptosis by interacting with proapoptotic members of the Bcl-2 family, such as Bad, Bax, and Bik, blocking the formation of the homodimers and, thus, the activation of the apoptotic cascade. 15,16 cIAP1/BIRC2 belongs to the family of antiapoptotic regulators known as inhibitors of apoptosis (IAP) proteins. Expression of cIAP1/BIRC2 is induced in conditions of ER stress through the phosphatidylinositol 3-kinase (PI3K)-Akt signaling pathway and contributes to cellular adaptation to stress by inhibiting the ER stress-induced apoptotic program that is ...

The unfolded protein response (UPR) is a cellular homeostatic mechanism that is activated in many human cancers and plays pivotal roles in tumor progression and therapy resistance. However, the molecular mechanisms for UPR activation and regulation in cancer cells remain elusive. Here, we show that oncogenic MYC regulates the inositol-requiring enzyme 1 (IRE1)/X-box binding protein 1 (XBP1) branch of the UPR in breast cancer via multiple mechanisms. We found that MYC directly controls IRE1 transcription by binding to its promoter and enhancer. Furthermore, MYC forms a transcriptional complex with XBP1, a target of IRE1, and enhances its transcriptional activity. Importantly, we demonstrate that XBP1 is a synthetic lethal partner of MYC. Silencing of XBP1 selectively blocked the growth of MYC-hyperactivated cells. Pharmacological inhibition of IRE1 RNase activity with small molecule inhibitor 8866 selectively restrained the MYC-overexpressing tumor growth in vivo in a cohort of preclinical ...
Purpose: : Cataracts can be induced by the unfolded protein response (UPR), which initiates diversified pathways including the production of reactive oxygen species (ROS) and apoptosis. In the UPR pathway, cell death is induced by the activation of CHOP, a member of the C/EBP family of transcriptional factors, which suppresses the expression of Bcl2 and subsequently activates caspases. CHOP is activated by activating transcriptional factor 4 (ATF4) in the UPR. The UPR also activates the expression of the ledgf gene. Lens epithelium derived growth factor (LEDGF) previously has been defined as a survival factor and activates several antiapoptotic enzymes. The purpose of this study is to determine whether LEDGF is under the control of ATF4 and CHOP in the UPR pathway. Methods: : Human lens epithelial cells (LECs) were cultured with ER stressors such as 5mM homocysteine, 1uM calcium ionophore (A23187), or 5uM tunicamycin for 24 hrs. Total protein and RNA were extracted from the resultant cells. ...
The endoplasmic reticulum (ER) is the site of folding of membrane and secreted proteins in the cell. Physiological or pathological processes that disturb protein folding in the endoplasmic reticulum cause ER stress and activate a set of signaling pathways termed the Unfolded Protein Response (UPR). The UPR can promote cellular repair and sustained survival by reducing the load of unfolded proteins through upregulation of chaperones and global attenuation of protein synthesis. Research into ER stress and the UPR continues to grow at a rapid rate as many new investigators are entering the field. There are also many researchers not working directly on ER stress, but who wish to determine whether this response is activated in the system they are studying: thus, it is important to list a standard set of criteria for monitoring UPR in different model systems. Here, we discuss approaches that can be used by researchers to plan and interpret experiments aimed at evaluating whether the UPR and related processes
Increasing evidence demonstrates that dysregulation of XBP1 function contributes to tumorigenesis in some cancers. However, little is known about the role of XBP1 in the progression of osteosarcoma (OS). The expression of XBP1 in OS samples was measured by quantitative RT-PCR and Western blotting assays. Cell cycle analysis and cell counting kit 8 (CCK8) assays were performed to determine the effects of XBP1 expression on cells growth capacity. Cell apoptosis coassay was applied to determine cell survival. The expression of genes affected by XBP1 was examined by quantitative RT-RCR and validated by Western blotting assays. XBP1 was overexpressed in OS clinical samples compared with corresponding non-cancerous tissues. Overexpression of XBP1 was significantly associated with advanced clinical stages, high degree of malignancy and low tumor necrosis rate. Furthermore, hypoxia activated XBP1, and silencing XBP1 significantly enhanced OS cell apoptosis. Knock-down of XBP1 resulted in inhibition of OS growth

Despite the relevance of the eukaryotic endoplasmic reticulum (ER)-stress response as an integrator of multiple stress signals into an adaptive response, knowledge about these ER-mediated cytoprotective pathways in soybean (Glycine max) is lacking. Here, we searched for genes involved in the highly conserved unfolded protein response (UPR) and ER stress-induced plant-specific cell death signaling pathways in the soybean genome. Previously characterized Arabidopsis UPR genes were used as prototypes for the identification of the soybean orthologs and the in silico assembly of the UPR in soybean, using eggNOG v4.0 software. Functional studies were also conducted by analyzing the transcriptional activity of soybean UPR transducers. As a result of this search, we have provided a complete profile of soybean UPR genes with significant predicted protein similarities to A. thaliana UPR-associated proteins. Both arms of the plant UPR were further examined functionally, and evidence is presented that the soybean
We have presented evidence that bZIP60 is a posttranslationally activated transcription factor involved in the Arabidopsis ER stress response. The results of microarray analysis of wild-type plants identified 129 genes that showed increases in transcript abundance of threefold or more in response to tunicamycin treatment. A majority of the proteins encoded by the induced genes are involved in protein folding, transport, secretion, or degradation. These observations are consistent with those reported in earlier studies using an 8000-gene microarray (Martinez and Chrispeels, 2003; Noh et al., 2003) and a fluid microarray (Kamauchi et al., 2005). ERSE and UPRE cis-elements were identified in the 500-bp upstream sequences of 68 of the 129 upregulated genes. Although these characteristic cis-elements were not identified in the other genes, it does not mean they do not contain such elements since they may be located outside of the 500-bp region examined.. We were unable to establish a simple ...
Protein kinase R (PKR)-like endoplasmic reticulum kinase (PERK) is a type I endoplasmic reticulum transmembrane protein containing a stress-sensing domain facing the endoplasmic reticulum lumen and a cytosolic kinase domain. PERK is a major component of the unfolded protein response (UPR), which promotes the adaptation of cells to various forms of stress. PERK is activated in response to a variety of endoplasmic reticulum stresses implicated in numerous disease states. PERK regulates proliferation of beta cells during embryonic and neonatal development and is essential for viability of acinar cells in mouse exocrine pancreas, neither of which is associated with endoplasmic reticulum stress response. PERK is also required for endoplasmic reticulum functions including proinsulin trafficking and quality control in beta cells.

In this study, we report that ER stress is induced by oxLDLs in human vascular cells and modulate the balance between survival and apoptosis induced by oxLDLs. The detection of ER stress markers (phospho-Ire1α and KDEL motif-bearing proteins) in human stable and advanced atherosclerotic lesions exhibiting high 4-HNE adduct staining indicates that lipid oxidation products (such as 4-HNE and 4-HNE-containing LDL) probably contribute to induce ER stress within the plaque. Forced expression of the ER-resident chaperone ORP150 inhibits ER stress induction triggered by oxLDLs by interacting with the ER stress sensors in vitro and in vivo in atherosclerotic lesions, which suggests that ORP150 could modulate ER stress in the vascular wall.. The first important result of this study is the induction of ER stress by oxLDLs and its potential involvement in oxLDL-induced apoptosis. The oxLDL-induced ER stress and UPR were assessed by the phosphorylation of ER stress sensors and the expression of ER-resident ...
The unfolded protein response (UPR) is an adaptive response that maintains the fidelity of the cellular proteome in conditions that subvert the folding capacity of the cell, such as those noticed in infection and inflammatory contexts. In immunity, the UPR sensor IRE1 (Inositol-requiring enzyme 1-al …
This study provides a novel perspective on the well-established link between UPR activation and FLD. Many studies have found some aspects of the UPR induced in FLD samples, and this has led to an oversimplification of the relationship between UPR activation and FLD, whereby any indicator of UPR activation is equated with ER stress and that all stressors that generate UPR induction cause FLD. Our data challenge this dogma by showing that (i) the UPR does not function as a rheostat in which all components behave synchronously in response to stress, but instead is characterized by distinct subclasses that change based on the nature and duration of the stress and (ii) some stressors induce a UPR subclass that causes FLD whereas other UPRs do not. Furthermore, our data confirm findings in other systems that an adaptive UPR can protect against the negative consequences of a robust stressor (Achard and Laybutt, 2012; Cinaroglu et al., 2011; Lugea et al., 2011; Rutkowski et al., 2006; Ye et al., 2010) ...
The unfolded protein response pathway that is induced by endoplasmic reticulum (ER) stress has important roles in immune cell development and function, which have led to new insights into the pathogenesis of inflammatory diseases. The unfolded protein response (UPR) is a highly conserved pathway that allows the cell to manage endoplasmic reticulum (ER) stress that is imposed by the secretory demands associated with environmental forces. In this role, the UPR has increasingly been shown to have crucial functions in immunity and inflammation. In this Review, we discuss the importance of the UPR in the

Roots are the frontier of plant body to perceive underground environmental change. ER stress response represents circumvention of cellular stress caused by various environmental changes; however, a limited number of studies are available on ER stress responses in roots. Here, we report the tunicamycin (TM) -induced ER stress response in Arabidopsis roots by monitoring expression patterns of BiP3, a representative marker for the response. Roots promptly responded to the TM-induced ER stress through induction of the similar sets of ER stress-responsive genes. However, not all cells responded uniformly to the TM-induced ER stress in roots, as BiP3 was highly expressed in root tips, an outer layer in elongation zone, and an inner layer in mature zone of roots. We suggest that ER stress response in roots has tissue specificity.

Endoplasmic reticulum (ER) stress and the unfolded protein response (UPR) signaling have been shown to be dysregulated in multiple cancer types. Glucose regulatory protein 78 (GRP78), the master regulator of the UPR, plays a role in proliferation, invasion, and metastasis in cancer. Cancer stem cells (CSCs) make up a crucial component of the tumor heterogeneity in pancreatic cancer, as well as other cancers.
Secreted and membrane proteins fold and mature in the lumen of the endoplasmic reticulum (ER) before they are delivered to other compartments in the endomembrane system, displayed on the cell surface, or released extracellularly. A collection of phylogenetically conserved signaling pathways, collectively termed the unfolded protein response (UPR), monitors conditions in the ER, sensing an insufficiency in the ERs protein-folding capacity (and hence the threat of misfolding) and communicates this information regarding the status of the ER lumen to gene expression programs of eukaryotic cells [reviewed in (1)]. UPR activation increases ER abundance to match needs by mediating expansion of the ER membrane (2) and populating the expanded organelle space with newly synthesized protein-folding machinery. This long-term, largely transcriptional control is accompanied by mechanisms that transiently decrease the flux of protein entering the ER. As such, the UPR is a paradigm for countless other feedback ...
IRE1 resides in the endoplasmic reticulum (ER) as a transmembrane protein with both serine-threonine kinase and endoribonuclease activities.
The unfolded protein response (UPR) is a cell-signaling system that detects the accumulation of unfolded protein within the endoplasmic reticulum (ER) and initiates a number of cellular responses to restore ER homeostasis. The presence of unfolded protein is detected by the ER-luminal sensor domains of the three UPR-transducer proteins IRE1, PERK, and ATF6, which then propagate the signal to the cytosol. In this review, we discuss the various mechanisms of action that have been proposed on how the sensor domains detect the presence of unfolded protein to activate downstream UPR signaling.

Cardiovascular disease constitutes a major and increasing health burden in developed countries. Although treatments have progressed, the development of novel treatments for patients with cardiovascular diseases remains a major research goal. The endoplasmic reticulum (ER) is the cellular organelle in which protein folding, calcium homeostasis, and lipid biosynthesis occur. Stimuli such as oxidative stress, ischemic insult, disturbances in calcium homeostasis, and enhanced expression of normal and/or folding-defective proteins lead to the accumulation of unfolded proteins, a condition referred to as ER stress. ER stress triggers the unfolded protein response (UPR) to maintain ER homeostasis. The UPR involves a group of signal transduction pathways that ameliorate the accumulation of unfolded protein by increasing ER-resident chaperones, inhibiting protein translation and accelerating the degradation of unfolded proteins. The UPR is initially an adaptive response but, if unresolved, can lead to apoptotic
Being a major factory for protein synthesis, assembly, and export, the endoplasmic reticulum (ER) has a precise and robust ER quality control (ERQC) system monitoring its product line. However, when organisms are subjected to environmental stress, whether biotic or abiotic, the levels of misfolded proteins may overwhelm the ERQC system, tilting the balance between the capacity of and demand for ER quality control and resulting in a scenario termed ER stress. Intense or prolonged ER stress may cause damage to the ER as well as to other organelles, or even lead to cell death in extreme cases. To avoid such serious consequences, cells activate self-rescue programs to restore protein homeostasis in the ER, either through the enhancement of protein-folding and degradation competence or by alleviating the demands for such reactions. These are collectively called the unfolded protein response (UPR). Long investigated in mammalian cells and yeasts, the UPR is also of great interest to plant scientists. Among

The unfolded protein response maintains protein homeostasis in the endoplasmic reticulum (ER), where the majority of transmembrane and secretory proteins are modified, folded and assembled. When the ER-resident folding machinery becomes overwhelmed, misfolded polypeptides accumulate and lead to ER stress, with toxic consequences to cells. To adjust the protein-folding capacity of the ER according to the needs of the cell, ER-resident sensor/transducer proteins constantly monitor the protein folding status in the ER lumen and take corrective actions to maintain proper ER function. This collection of conserved signaling pathways is termed the unfolded protein response (UPR).. Since its discovery some 20 years ago, our knowledge of the UPR has vastly expanded. Many of the initial insights were obtained from the budding yeast Saccharomyces cerevisiae, where a single signal transduction pathway is tasked with responding to ER stress. This pathway is initiated by the stress sensor/transducer IRE1, a ...
