Each mitochondrion is surrounded by a double limiting membrane. The inner membrane is highly invaginated, and its projections are called cristae. Mitochondria are the sites of the reactions of oxidative phosphorylation, which result in the formation of ATP. They contain distinctive RIBOSOMES, transfer RNAs (RNA, TRANSFER); AMINO ACYL T RNA SYNTHETASES; and elongation and termination factors. Mitochondria depend upon genes within the nucleus of the cells in which they reside for many essential messenger RNAs (RNA, MESSENGER).

Constitutive and regulated alpha-secretase cleavage of Alzheimer's amyloid precursor protein by a disintegrin metalloprotease. (1/1953)

Amyloid beta peptide (Abeta), the principal proteinaceous component of amyloid plaques in brains of Alzheimer's disease patients, is derived by proteolytic cleavage of the amyloid precursor protein (APP). Proteolytic cleavage of APP by a putative alpha-secretase within the Abeta sequence precludes the formation of the amyloidogenic peptides and leads to the release of soluble APPsalpha into the medium. By overexpression of a disintegrin and metalloprotease (ADAM), classified as ADAM 10, in HEK 293 cells, basal and protein kinase C-stimulated alpha-secretase activity was increased severalfold. The proteolytically activated form of ADAM 10 was localized by cell surface biotinylation in the plasma membrane, but the majority of the proenzyme was found in the Golgi. These results support the view that APP is cleaved both at the cell surface and along the secretory pathway. Endogenous alpha-secretase activity was inhibited by a dominant negative form of ADAM 10 with a point mutation in the zinc binding site. Studies with purified ADAM 10 and Abeta fragments confirm the correct alpha-secretase cleavage site and demonstrate a dependence on the substrate's conformation. Our results provide evidence that ADAM 10 has alpha-secretase activity and many properties expected for the proteolytic processing of APP. Increases of its expression and activity might be beneficial for the treatment of Alzheimer's disease.  (+info)

Unaltered cleavage and secretion of angiotensin-converting enzyme in tumor necrosis factor-alpha-converting enzyme-deficient mice. (2/1953)

Mammalian angiotensin-converting enzyme (ACE) is one of several biologically important ectoproteins that exist in both membrane-bound and soluble forms as a result of a post-translational proteolytic cleavage. It has been suggested that a common proteolytic system is responsible for the cleavage of a diverse group of membrane ectoproteins, and tumor necrosis factor-alpha-converting enzyme (TACE), a recently purified disintegrin-metalloprotease, has been implicated in the proteolytic cleavage of several cell surface proteins. Mice devoid of TACE have been developed by gene targeting. Such mice could provide a useful system to determine if TACE is responsible for the cleavage of other ectoproteins. Cultured fibroblasts without TACE activity, when transfected with cDNA encoding for the testicular isozyme of ACE (ACET), synthesized and secreted ACET normally after a proteolytic cleavage near the C terminus. In addition, similar quantities of the soluble, C-terminally truncated somatic isozyme of ACE (ACEP) were present in the serum of wild-type and TACE-deficient mice. These results demonstrate that TACE is not essential in the generation of soluble ACE under physiological conditions. Finally, we also report solubilization of ACE-secretase, the enzyme that cleaves ACE, from mouse ACE89 cells and from rabbit lung. We demonstrate that soluble ACE-secretase from both sources failed to cleave its substrate in solution, suggesting a requirement for anchoring to the membrane.  (+info)

Thrombotic thrombocytopenic purpura and autoimmunity: a tale of shadows and suspects. (3/1953)

BACKGROUND AND OBJECTIVE: The key pathogenic feature of TTP is the formation of platelet aggregates within the microcirculation; however, the etiology of such aggregates has been elusive for years. A large amount of evidence points to an abnormal interaction between damaged vascular endothelium and platelets, although the cause of the primary microvascular endothelial cell injury is seldom clear. The autoimmune hypothesis often recurs, and this is based on a number of observations: the claimed superiority of plasma-exchange over plasma infusion, the anecdotal report of the presence of immunocomplexes and autoantibodies in TTP patients, the efficacy of the administration of corticosteroids and other immunosuppressant agents, and the concomitant occurrence of TTP in association with autoimmune diseases, especially systemic lupus erythematosus (SLE). This review will focus on the complex relationships between TTP and humoral autoimmunity; in particular, similarities and differences between TTP, SLE and antiphospholipid (aPL) antibodies syndrome, as well as the putative role of several other antibodies directed towards endothelial cells and/or platelets, including the recently discovered anti-CD36 antibodies and antivWF-cleaving metalloprotease, will be discussed. DESIGN AND METHODS: The authors have been involved in the study and treatment of TTP and autoimmune diseases for years; furthermore, the PubMed data base of the National Library of Congress has been extensively searched using the Internet. CONCLUSIONS: Although over the years evidence has increased in favor of the autoimmune hypothesis for TTP etiopathogenesis, TTP should not yet be considered an autoimmune disease. Autoantibodies should be regarded as only one of the many different insults which can trigger microvascular thrombosis even though the autoimmune theory of the pathogenesis of TTP is gaining more and more strength. As far as concerns the relationship between TTP, SLE and aPL antibodies-related disorders, these diseases should be distinguished on the basis of both different clinical presentations and accurate antibody screening, although this approach should definitely not delay the prompt start of treatment.  (+info)

Regulation of human ADAM 12 protease by the prodomain. Evidence for a functional cysteine switch. (4/1953)

The ADAMs (a disintegrin and metalloprotease) are a family of multidomain proteins that are believed to play key roles in cell-cell and cell-matrix interactions. We have shown recently that human ADAM 12-S (meltrin alpha) is an active metalloprotease. It is synthesized as a zymogen, with the prodomain maintaining the protease in a latent form. We now provide evidence that the latency mechanism of ADAM 12 can be explained by the cysteine switch model, in which coordination of Zn2+ in the active site of the catalytic domain by a cysteine residue in the prodomain is critical for inhibition of the protease. Replacing Cys179 with other amino acids results in an ADAM 12 proform that is proteolytically active, but latency can be restored by placing cysteine at other positions in the propeptide. None of the amino acids adjacent to the crucial cysteine residue is essential for blocking activity of the protease domain. In addition to its latency function, the prodomain is required for exit of ADAM 12 protease from the endoplasmic reticulum. Tissue inhibitor of metalloprotease-1, -2, and -3 were not found to block proteolytic activity of ADAM 12, hence a physiological inhibitor of ADAM 12 protease in the extracellular environment remains to be identified.  (+info)

Evidence for a role of a tumor necrosis factor-alpha (TNF-alpha)-converting enzyme-like protease in shedding of TRANCE, a TNF family member involved in osteoclastogenesis and dendritic cell survival. (5/1953)

Tumor necrosis factor (TNF)-related activation-induced cytokine (TRANCE), a member of the TNF family, is a dendritic cell survival factor and is essential for osteoclastogenesis and osteoclast activation. In this report we demonstrate (i) that TRANCE, like TNF-alpha, is made as a membrane-anchored precursor, which is released from the plasma membrane by a metalloprotease; (ii) that soluble TRANCE has potent dendritic cell survival and osteoclastogenic activity; (iii) that the metalloprotease-disintegrin TNF-alpha convertase (TACE) can cleave immunoprecipitated TRANCE in vitro in a fashion that mimics the cleavage observed in tissue culture cells; and (iv) that in vitro cleavage of a TRANCE ectodomain/CD8 fusion protein and of a peptide corresponding to the TRANCE cleavage site by TACE occurs at the same site that is used when TRANCE is shed from cells into the supernatant. We propose that the TRANCE ectodomain is released from cells by TACE or a related metalloprotease-disintegrin, and that this release is an important component of the function of TRANCE in bone and immune homeostasis.  (+info)

Deficient activity of von Willebrand's factor-cleaving protease in patients with disseminated malignancies. (6/1953)

An aberrant platelet immunorelated glycoprotein Ib (GPIb) receptor expressed by human tumor cells appears to participate in primary adhesive interactions required for the metastatic process. Hence, we questioned whether plasma von Willebrand's factor (vWf), its adhesive ligand, manifested comparable anomalies in patients with disseminated tumors. Plasma specimens from patients with disseminated metastases showed 68% (P < 0.013), 91% (P < 0.0009), and 207% (P < 0.0009) enhancements in FVIII:C activity, vWf-related antigen levels, and ristocetin co-factor activity, respectively, whereas their SDS-agarose electrophoretic analysis demonstrated a 165% (P < 0.001) increase in the highly polymeric forms of vWf compared to control preparations from patients with corresponding, localized solid tumors. Substantially reduced levels of vWf-cleaving protease activity were observed in study patient specimens, with no plasma inhibitors detectable. The clinical presence and absence of tumor metastases correlated significantly with vWf-cleaving enzyme activities of < or = 15% and > or = 88%, respectively (n = 20; P < 0.0001). Finally, with an in vitro model system, tumor-induced platelet aggregation was enhanced by 127% (P < 0.001) in study patient platelet-rich plasma (PRP) compared to control PRP and could be completely inhibited (P < 0.0009) when both tumor cells and their PRP substrates were incubated with monoclonal antibodies directed against the vWf binding epitope of GPIb alpha and against the GPIb binding epitope of plasma vWf, respectively. Unusually large vWf multimers observed in patients with disseminated tumors probably result from deficient vWf-cleaving protease activity and may represent a novel mechanism regulating primary platelet-tumor adhesive interactions involved in the metastatic process.  (+info)

Cysteine-rich domain of human ADAM 12 (meltrin alpha) supports tumor cell adhesion. (7/1953)

The ADAMs (A disintegrin and metalloprotease) comprise a family of membrane-anchored cell surface proteins with a putative role in cell-cell and/or cell-matrix interactions. By immunostaining, ADAM 12 (meltrin alpha) was up-regulated in several human carcinomas and could be detected along the tumor cell membranes. Because of this intriguing staining pattern, we investigated whether human ADAM 12 supports tumor cell adhesion. Using an in vitro assay using recombinant polypeptides expressed in Escherichia coli, we examined the ability of individual domains of human ADAM 12 and ADAM 15 to support tumor cell adhesion. We found that the disintegrin-like domain of human ADAM 15 supported adhesion of alphavbeta3-expressing A375 melanoma cells. In the case of human ADAM 12, however, recombinant polypeptides of the cysteine-rich domain but not the disintegrin-like domain supported cell adhesion of a panel of carcinoma cell lines. On attachment to recombinant polypeptides from the cysteine-rich domain of human ADAM 12, most tumor cell lines, such as MDA-MB-231 breast carcinoma cells, were rounded and associated with numerous actin-containing filopodia and used a cell surface heparan sulfate proteoglycan to attach. Finally, we demonstrated that authentic full-length human ADAM 12 could bind to heparin Sepharose. Together these results suggest a novel role of the cysteine-rich domain of ADAM 12 -- that of supporting tumor cell adhesion.  (+info)

Evidence that a functional fertilin-like ADAM plays a role in human sperm-oolemmal interactions. (8/1953)

Fertilin is a protein initially identified in guinea pig spermatozoa; it is the prototype of a larger family of conserved, proteins designated as a disintegrin and a metalloproteinase (ADAM). These heterodimers which consist of alpha and beta subunits, containing metalloproteinase-like and disintegrin-like domains, appear to play a role in mammalian fertilization. Peptides derived from the disintegrin domains of two ADAMs, fertilin and cyritestin, interfere with gamete adhesion and sperm-egg membrane fusion in non-human species. It has been suggested that fertilin-beta binds to an oolemmal integrin, and it is proposed that the tripeptide FEE (Phe-Glu-Glu) is the integrin recognition sequence in human fertilin-beta. We evaluated whether fertilin beta plays a role in human fertilization by studying the effects of a linear octapeptide containing the FEE sequence, SFEECDLP, and a scrambled octapeptide with the same amino acids, SFPCEDEL, on the incorporation of human spermatozoa by human zona-free eggs. The effects of G4120, a potent RGD-containing (Arg-Gly-Asp) thioether-bridged cyclic peptide which blocks both fibronectin and vitronectin receptors, and the relationship between FEE- and RGD-receptor interactions on sperm-egg interactions were also studied. The FEE-containing peptide, but not the scrampled peptide, inhibited sperm adhesion to oocytes and their penetration, over the range 1-5 microM. The inhibition induced by SFEECDLP was reversible and occurred only in the presence of peptide itself. The G4120 peptide exhibited 10-fold less inhibitory effects on sperm adhesion and penetration than did SFEECDLP. When combined, SFEECDLP and G4120 exhibited strong inhibition of both adhesion and penetration at concentrations that individually had been ineffective, suggesting co-operation between the two receptor-ligand interactions during fertilization. We propose that a fertilin-like molecule is functionally active on human spermatozoa and that its interaction with an oolemmal integrin receptor plays a role in fertilization in humans.  (+info)

Tissue inhibitor of metalloproteinase-3 (TIMP-3) is a dual inhibitor of the matrix metalloproteinases (MMPs) and some adamalysins, two families of extracellular and cell surface metalloproteinases that function in extracellular matrix turnover and the shedding of cell surface proteins. The mechanism of inhibition of MMPs by TIMPs has been well characterized, and since the catalytic domains of MMPs and adamalysins are homologous, it was assumed that the interaction of TIMP-3 with adamalysins is closely similar. Here we report that the inhibition of the extracellular region of ADAM-17 (tumor necrosis factor alpha-converting enzyme (TACE)) by the inhibitory domain of TIMP-3 (N-TIMP-3) shows positive cooperativity. Also, mutations in the core of the MMP interaction surface of N-TIMP-3 dramatically reduce the binding affinity for MMPs but have little effect on the inhibitory activity for TACE. These results suggest that the mechanism of inhibition of ADAM-17 by TIMP-3 may be distinct from that for MMPs. The

Adam protein (A Disintegrin and Metalloproteinase Protein) is a family of peptidase proteins[1]. ADAMs are also known as the Adamalysin family. ADAMs are classified as Sheddases because they cut off or shed extracellular portions of transmembrane proteins. For example, ADAM 10 can cut off part of the HER2 receptor, activating it[2] and ADAM 17 can cut off part of the EGFR once it has bound its ligand, freeing the ligand to go and stimulate another cell[3]. Therapeutic ADAM inhibitors can potentiate anti-cancer therapy[citation needed]. It is categorized under EC 3.4.24.46. Types include: ...

Disintegrin-like metalloproteases (ADAMs) comprise the major family of ectodomain sheddases. In inflammatory settings, ADAMs mediate signaling of cytokines, including TNFα and IL-6, and control leukocyte recruitment by the cleavage of cell adhesion molecules. ADAM17 and ADAM10 have been implicated in diverse diseases associated with inflammation, including psoriasis, asthma, arthritis, atherosclerosis, inflammation associated tumors, diabetes and Alzheimers disease (AD) [1-3]. With regard to the latter, it is assumed that decreased α-secretase (ADAM10 and ADAM17) activity and increased β-secretase (BACE1) activity results in abnormal processing of the amyloid precursor protein (APP). This leads to elevated levels of neurotoxic amyloid β, a key pathognomonic feature of AD. Due to the important role of ADAMs and BACE in amyloid β production, altering the ADAM10/17 and/or BACE function are being considered as a promising therapeutic approach to AD [4].. Although ADAM10 and ADAM17 were ...
Abstract. The transmembrane protein ADAM22 is expressed at high levels in the brain. From its molecular structure, ADAM22 is thought to be an adhesion molecule or a receptor because it has functional disintegrin-like and cysteine-rich sequences in its ectodomain. The phenotypic analysis of ADAM22-deficient mice has indicated the important roles played by ADAM22 in proper neuronal function and peripheral nerve development, however, the precise molecular function of ADAM22 is still unknown. To understand the function of ADAM22 on a molecular basis, we identified ADAM22 binding proteins by using immunoprecipitation and mass spectrometric analysis. This analysis revealed that Leucine-rich glioma inactivated 1 (LGI1) is the most potent ADAM22 binding protein in mouse brain. By our quantitative cell-ELISA system, we demonstrated the specific binding of LGI1 with ADAM22. Furthermore, we showed that LGI4, a putative ADAM22 ligand, also bound to ADAM22. Characterization of the binding specificity of LGI1 ...
ADAM (a disintegrin and metalloproteinase) 10 is a key member of the ADAM family of disintegrin and metalloproteinases which process membrane-associated proteins to soluble forms in a process known as shedding. Among the major targets of ADAM10 are Notch, EphrinA2 and CD44. In many cell-based studies of shedding, the activity of ADAM10 appears to overlap with that of ADAM17, which has a similar active-site topology relative to the other proteolytically active ADAMs. The tissue inhibitors of metalloproteinases, TIMPs, have proved useful in the study of ADAM function, since TIMP-1 inhibits ADAM10, but not ADAM17; however, both enzymes are inhibited by TIMP-3. In the present study, we show that, in comparison with ADAM17 and the MMPs (matrix metalloproteinases), the N-terminal domains of TIMPs alone are insufficient for the inhibition of ADAM10. This knowledge could form the basis for the design of directed inhibitors against different metalloproteinases.. ...

Many guidance receptors are proteolytically cleaved by membrane-associated metalloproteases of the ADAM family, leading to the shedding of their ectodomains. Ectodomain shedding is crucial for receptor signaling and function, but how this process is controlled in neurons remains poorly understood. Here, we show that the transmembrane protein Lrig2 negatively regulates ... read more ADAM-mediated guidance receptor proteolysis in neurons. Lrig2 binds Neogenin, a receptor for repulsive guidance molecules (RGMs), and prevents premature Neogenin shedding by ADAM17 (TACE). RGMa reduces Lrig2-Neogenin interactions, providing ADAM17 access to Neogenin and allowing this protease to induce ectodomain shedding. Regulation of ADAM17-mediated Neogenin cleavage by Lrig2 is required for neurite growth inhibition by RGMa in vitro and for cortical neuron migration in vivo. Furthermore, knockdown of Lrig2 significantly improves CNS axon regeneration. Together, our data identify a unique ligand-gated mechanism to ...

Results-Treatment with recombinant ADAMTS 13 (rADAMTS 13) reduced the levels of chemokines and cytokines, myeloperoxidase activity, and microglia activation and neutrophil recruitment after ICH. rADAMTS 13 also decreased interleukin-6 expression in brain endothelial cells stimulated by lipopolysaccharide, whereas recombinant von Willebrand factor reversed this effect. The anti-inflammatory effect of rADAMTS 13 was accompanied by reduced expression of intercellular adhesion molecule-1 and less activation of matrix metalloproteinase, enhanced pericyte coverage of brain microvessels, and attenuated BBB disruption. Furthermore, neutrophil depletion protected against BBB damage, and rADAMTS 13 treatment had no further beneficial effect. Finally, treatment of mice with rADAMTS 13 reduced cerebral edema and hemorrhagic lesion volume and improved neurological functions. ...
ADAMs (a disintegrin and metalloproteinase) have important roles in development and diseases such as cancer. Previously, an ADAM15 splice variant (ADAM15B), which contains an inserted cytoplasmic Src-binding site, was linked to clinical aggressiveness in breast cancer, yet little was known about how this splice variant affects the function of ADAM15. Here, we show that ADAM15B has enhanced catalytic activity in cell-based assays compared with ADAM15A, which lacks a Src-binding site, using shedding of fibroblast growth factor receptor 2iiib variant as an assay for catalytic activity. Moreover, the enhanced activity of ADAM15B compared with ADAM15A depends on Src because it is abolished by Src-kinase inhibitors and in Src(-/-) cells, but not in Src(-/-) cells rescued with Src. These findings provide insights into the mechanism of how a splice variant linked to clinical agressiveness in breast cancer causes increased activity of ADAM15B, and suggest that inhibitors of the ADAM15 protease activity or of the
ADAMTS-20 is a 1,906 amino acid protein of the large family of secreted zinc-dependent metalloproteases known as the ADAMTS (a disintegrin and metalloprotease domain, with thrombospondin type-1 repeats) family (Figure 3). ADAMTS-20 has an N-terminal signal peptide and a propeptide domain which contains three conserved Cys residues and ends in a basic region (aa 246-259). Following the prodomain, ADAMTS-20 contains the zinc-coordinating catalytic sequence HELGHVFNVPHD (aa 399-410) that is closely related to sequences found in metalloproteases. The catalytic domain of ADAMTS-20 is followed by a disintegrin-like domain similar in size and structure amongst all ADAMTS proteins (76 residues) and includes eight conserved Cys residues. The disintegrin domain precedes a single thrombospondin type I repeat (TSP1) which is well-conserved and similar to a domain in Thrombospondin I. The first TSP1 repeat is followed by a cysteine (Cys)-rich domain that has ten conserved Cys residues as well as a spacer ...
A disintegrin and metalloprotease (ADAM) 10 and ADAM17 are ubiquitous transmembrane "molecular scissors" which proteolytically cleave, or shed, the extracellular regions of other transmembrane proteins. ADAM10 is essential for development because it cleaves Notch proteins to induce Notch signaling and regulate cell fate decisions. ADAM17 is regarded as a first line of defense against injury and infection, by releasing tumor necrosis factor α (TNFα) to promote inflammation and epidermal growth factor (EGF) receptor ligands to maintain epidermal barrier function. However, the regulation of ADAM10 and ADAM17 trafficking and activation are not fully understood. This review will describe how the TspanC8 subgroup of tetraspanins (Tspan5, 10, 14, 15, 17, and 33) and the iRhom subgroup of protease-inactive rhomboids (iRhom1 and 2) have emerged as important regulators of ADAM10 and ADAM17, respectively. In particular, they are required for the enzymatic maturation and trafficking to the cell surface of ...

Allergic asthma severity may be associated with IgE levels. We have shown that beta-2 adrenergic receptor (β2AR) engagement on CD40L/IL-4-primed B cells increases the level of IgE produced per cell, without affecting class switch recombination. β2AR agonists alleviate bronchoconstriction by targeting the β2AR expressed on bronchiolar smooth muscle cells to trigger airway relaxation, but these drugs also target the β2AR on primed B cells, potentially producing an IgE effect that may be counterproductive to the drugs intended use. We reported that surface CD23 expression remained constant on primed B cells exposed to a β2AR agonist, while CD23 mRNA, total CD23 protein, and soluble CD23 (sCD23) increased. Thus, if sCD23 positively regulates IgE production, an increase due to β2AR engagement may worsen bronchoconstriction, albeit relieving it in the short term. We hypothesized that the primary sheddase of CD23, ADAM10, is regulated by β2AR engagement on a primed B cell. Although we found that ...
Protein ectodomain shedding is crucial for cell−cell interactions because it controls the bioavailability of soluble tumor necrosis factor-α (TNFα) and ligands of the epidermal growth factor (EGF) receptor, and the release of many other membrane proteins. Various stimuli can rapidly trigger ectodomain shedding, yet much remains to be learned about the identity of the enzymes that respond to these stimuli and the mechanisms underlying their activation. Here, we demonstrate that the membrane-anchored metalloproteinase ADAM17, but not ADAM10, is the sheddase that rapidly responds to the physiological signaling pathways stimulated by thrombin, EGF, lysophosphatidic acid and TNFα. Stimulation of ADAM17 is swift and quickly reversible, and does not depend on removal of its inhibitory pro-domain by pro-protein convertases, or on dissociation of an endogenous inhibitor, TIMP3. Moreover, activation of ADAM17 by physiological stimuli requires its transmembrane domain, but not its cytoplasmic domain, ...

No we are not inbred. On the fifth day God created the first Adams. They were many Adams or humans, who were infact able to procreate on their own it seems being completely God like. All until the Adam of YHWH couldnt find anyone he could love. No matter who he would choose among those perfect creatures of God, he could never feel that he owned it, or that she could be the part of him that he missed. He had it all, he didnt need anything the other Adams had. Then YHWH let a deep sleep come uppon the Adam, and he took a cell from his body, and he physically closed or "stitched up" the shameful wound down there. The text actually says that. That the first humans were created like malefemales. What today would be called shemales or transsexual. I have reasons to believe that while our Adam stayed human many of the other Adams ascended into angelity, and some of these later stepped down to rape Adams daughters resulting in bizarre creatures, monsters and giants. I also believe that some of the ...

3989 ADAM9, a member of the A Disintegrin And Metalloprotease family of proteins, is a membrane-anchored protein containing an SH3 domain-containing cytoplasmic tail and an extracellular domain comprised of a pro-domain, metalloprotease domain, disintegrin domain, cystein-rich domain, and an epidermal growth factor repeat. ADAM9 has been shown to regulate E-Cadherin internalization and participate in integrin-mediated adhesion processes, and is thought to play a role in tumor aggressiveness. We have developed an ADAM9-specific monoclonal antibody, termed KID24, which is the first reported antibody that inhibits the catalytic activity of ADAM9 in vitro. Immunohistochemical analysis demonstrated KID24 exhibits preferential staining of human tumor tissue over normal tissue. Elevated KID24 staining was observed in lung, colon, pancreatic and prostate adenocarcinomas, confirming previous reports defining ADAM9 as a tumor-associated antigen. ADAM9 is also expressed by a number of Raven cancer stem ...

Cannabinoids were shown to induce apoptosis in cells of the neuronal system including neurons, astrocytes, human grade IV astrocytoma, glioma C6, astrocytoma U373-MG, neuroblastoma N18 TG2, and pheochromocytoma PC12 cells and to inhibit proliferation of MCF-7, EFM-19, T47D, and DU145 cells (5 , 26) . On the basis of these findings and their analgesic properties, cannabinoids were suggested as useful drugs to support cancer therapy. Here we show that various cannabinoids potently induce mitogenic kinase signaling in different cancer cell lines. Moreover, we demonstrate, in contrast to other studies that used cannabinoids such as THC at micromolar concentrations, that nanomolar concentrations of THC induce proliferation of cancer cells (Fig. 3, A and B) ⇓ . Importantly, the concentration of THC that was used here is more likely to reflect the therapeutically relevant situation detected in serum after drug treatment (27, 28, 29, 30, 31) .. The binding of cannabinoids to their cognate receptors ...
: ADAMTS-1, -4, -5 and -9 belong to a disintegrin and metalloproteinase with thrombospondin motifs (ADAMTS) family and more precisely to the proteoglycanases subgroup based on their common ability to degrade chondroitin sulfate proteoglycans. They have been extensively investigated for their involvement in inflammation-induced osteoarthritis, and a growing body of evidence indicates that they may be of key importance in the physiological and pathological central nervous system (CNS). In this review, we discuss the deregulated expression of ADAMTS proteoglycanases during acute CNS injuries, such as stroke and spinal cord injury. Then, we provide new insights on ADAMTS proteoglycanases mediating synaptic plasticity, neurorepair, angiogenesis and inflammation mechanisms. Altogether, this review allows us to propose that ADAMTS proteoglycanases may be original therapeutic targets for CNS injuries.

After having a vision of himself and Caitlin in the outbreak future, Peter tells Adam about it and shows him an evacuation notice that he brought back with him. Adam asks Peter what he knows about the virus and when Peter tells him that it kills over 93% of the worlds population, Adam asks if he knows the name of the virus. Peter remembers Howard Lemay telling him that it was called the Shanti virus and tells Adam. Adam tells Peter that he knew a woman at the Company named Victoria Pratt who recovered a deadly virus from a sick Indian girl named Shanti on Valentines Day, 1977. Adam shows Peter a picture of the Company founders and tells him that Victoria, a biological engineer, tried to turn the virus into a weapon on Company orders. Adam claims he heard the program was shut down but was apparently misinformed. Adam explains that the picture is of the Company founders and that the virus is their sin. Peter realizes that the Company is responsible for the release of the Shanti virus in the ...
People are always asking me How is Adam? And I always respond "Great, he is so sweet".

He has 9 specialist with more to add down the road, but all in all … he is Great! And we are great too and very blessed!" However, people do not want to hear that. I think since they see Adam and he seems like everything is fine, they do not want to hear the real stuff! I think this is the same for everything. Most people when they ask How you are? How are the boys? It is better to say great instead of telling the truth, but with special needs kids it is harder to do.

Against this dystopian backdrop, the author does a great job of developing both his characters and their relationships to one another. By far the most interesting character in the novel is Herb Campbell. From the beginning Walters establishes Herb as a mysterious person with a cool demeanor that masks some rather interesting talents. Everything Herb predicts will happen eventually does happen leading the Adam to conclude that he has experienced this exact situation at least once before. This causes Adam to open his eyes and really study Herb, just as Herb studies everyone around him. But Herb is also a highly conflicted character. He tells Adam that he was both "used" and "almost used up" and that he has done things he isnt proud of and that he hopes Adam will never have to do. Herb proceeds cautiously in everything he does, but acts when he feels it is necessary. It is obvious he is trying to protect Adam from falling into similar situations but also trying to develop in him the skills he will ...
