Loss of caspase-8 expression does not correlate with MYCN amplification, aggressive disease, or prognosis in neuroblastoma. (1/40)

Inactivation of caspase-8 because of aberrant gene methylation has been associated with amplification of the MYCN oncogene and aggressive disease in neuroblastoma, suggesting that caspase-8 may function as tumor suppressor. However, the prognostic effect of caspase-8 in neuroblastoma has remained obscure. Therefore, we investigated caspase-8 expression and its correlation with established prognostic markers and survival outcome in a large cohort of neuroblastoma patients. Here, we report that loss of caspase-8 protein expression occurs in the majority (75%) of neuroblastoma and is not restricted to advanced disease stages. Surprisingly, no correlation was observed between caspase-8 expression and MYCN amplification. Similarly, ectopic expression of MYCN or antisense-mediated down-regulation of MYCN had no effect on caspase-8 expression in neuroblastoma cell lines. In addition, caspase-8 expression did not correlate with other variables of high-risk disease (e.g., 1p36 aberrations, disease stage, age at diagnosis, or tumor histology). Most importantly, loss of caspase-8 protein had no effect on event-free or overall survival in the overall study population or in distinct subgroups of patients. By revealing no correlation between caspase-8 expression and MYCN amplification or other established variables of aggressive disease, our findings in a large cohort of neuroblastoma patients show that inactivation of caspase-8 is not a characteristic feature of aggressive neuroblastoma. Thus, our study provides novel insight into the biology of this tumor, which may have important clinical implications.  (+info)

Caspase-8 and c-FLIPL associate in lipid rafts with NF-kappaB adaptors during T cell activation. (2/40)

Humans and mice lacking functional caspase-8 in T cells manifest a profound immunodeficiency syndrome due to defective T cell antigen receptor (TCR)-induced NF-kappaB signaling and proliferation. It is unknown how caspase-8 is activated following T cell stimulation, and what is the caspase-8 substrate(s) that is necessary to initiate T cell cycling. We observe that following TCR ligation, a small portion of total cellular caspase-8 and c-FLIP(L) rapidly migrate to lipid rafts where they associate in an active caspase complex. Activation of caspase-8 in lipid rafts is followed by rapid cleavage of c-FLIP(L) at a known caspase-8 cleavage site. The active caspase.c-FLIP complex forms in the absence of Fas (CD95/APO1) and associates with the NF-kappaB signaling molecules RIP1, TRAF2, and TRAF6, as well as upstream NF-kappaB regulators PKC theta, CARMA1, Bcl-10, and MALT1, which connect to the TCR. The lack of caspase-8 results in the absence of MALT1 and Bcl-10 in the active caspase complex. Consistent with this observation, inhibition of caspase activity attenuates NF-kappaB activation. The current findings define a link among TCR, caspases, and the NF-kappaB pathway that occurs in a sequestered lipid raft environment in T cells.  (+info)

Lidocaine induces apoptosis via the mitochondrial pathway independently of death receptor signaling. (3/40)

BACKGROUND: Local anesthetics, especially lidocaine, can lead to persistent cauda equina syndrome after spinal anesthesia. Recently, lidocaine has been reported to trigger apoptosis, although the underlying mechanisms remain unknown. To elucidate the pathway of lidocaine-induced apoptosis, the authors used genetically modified cells with overexpression or deficiencies of key regulators of apoptosis. METHODS: Human Jurkat T-lymphoma cells overexpressing the antiapoptotic protein B-cell lymphoma 2 as well as cells deficient of caspase 9, caspase 8, or Fas-associated protein with death domain were exposed to lidocaine and compared with parental cells. The authors evaluated cell viability, mitochondrial alterations, cytochrome c release, caspase activation, and early apoptosis. Apoptosis was in addition investigated in neuroblastoma cells. RESULTS: In Jurkat cells, lidocaine reduced viability, associated with a loss of the mitochondrial membrane potential. At low concentrations (3-6 mm) of lidocaine, caspase 3 was activated and release of cytochrome c was detected, whereas at higher concentrations (10 mm), no caspase activation was found. Apoptosis by lidocaine was strongly reduced by B-cell lymphoma-2 protein overexpression or caspase-9 deficiency, whereas cells lacking the death receptor pathway components caspase 8 and Fas-associated protein with death domain were not protected and displayed similar apoptotic alterations as the parental cells. Lidocaine also induced apoptotic caspase activation in neuroblastoma cells. CONCLUSIONS: Apoptosis is triggered by concentrations of lidocaine occurring intrathecally after spinal anesthesia, whereas higher concentrations induce necrosis. The data indicate that death receptors are not involved in lidocaine-induced apoptosis. In contrast, the observation that B-cell lymphoma-2 protein overexpression or the lack of caspase 9 abolished apoptosis clearly implicates the intrinsic mitochondrial death pathway in lidocaine-induced apoptosis.  (+info)

A Fas-associated death domain protein/caspase-8-signaling axis promotes S-phase entry and maintains S6 kinase activity in T cells responding to IL-2. (4/40)

Fas-associated death domain protein (FADD) constitutes an essential component of TNFR-induced apoptotic signaling. Paradoxically, FADD has also been shown to be crucial for lymphocyte development and activation. In this study, we report that FADD is necessary for long-term maintenance of S6 kinase (S6K) activity. S6 phosphorylation at serines 240 and 244 was only observed after long-term stimulation of wild-type cells, roughly corresponding to the time before S-phase entry, and was poorly induced in T cells expressing a dominantly interfering form of FADD (FADDdd), viral FLIP, or possessing a deficiency in caspase-8. Defects in S6K1 phosphorylation were also observed. However, defective S6K1 phosphorylation was not a consequence of a wholesale defect in mammalian target of rapamycin function, because 4E-BP1 phosphorylation following T cell activation was unaffected by FADDdd expression. Although cyclin D3 up-regulation and retinoblastoma hypophosphorylation occurred normally in FADDdd T cells, cyclin E expression and cyclin-dependent kinase 2 activation were markedly impaired in FADDdd T cells. These results demonstrate that a FADD/caspase-8-signaling axis promotes T cell cycle progression and sustained S6K activity.  (+info)

Novel noncatalytic role for caspase-8 in promoting SRC-mediated adhesion and Erk signaling in neuroblastoma cells. (5/40)

Neuroblastomas are extremely aggressive, although heterogeneous, cancers with a poor prognosis upon metastasis. Some evidence has suggested a correlative silencing of caspase-8 with MYCN amplification in neuroblastoma. A prognostic effect of this silencing, however, has been disputed. We report here hitherto undescribed roles for caspase-8 in the modulation of cell adhesion and subsequent activation of the Erk signaling pathway. Re-expression of caspase-8 in neuroblastoma cells lacking endogenous caspase-8 expression was found to promote cell adhesion to extracellular matrix and to activate adhesion-dependent signaling pathways, such as the Erk kinase cascade. This function of caspase-8 occurred irrespective of its proteolytic activity. Additionally, a pool of caspase-8 was shown to co-localize with the Src tyrosine kinase at the cellular periphery. Furthermore, our studies showed that caspase-8 forms a physical protein complex with Src via its death effector domains (DED) and maintains the complex in a detergent-soluble fraction. We also show that the DEDs of caspase-8 alone are necessary and sufficient to recreate the adhesive and biochemical phenotypes observed with the full-length protein, suggesting that caspase-8 may exert these effects via its association with Src. This protein complex association of caspase-8 and Src, and concomitant downstream signaling events, may help reconcile why a potential tumor suppressor such as caspase-8 is rarely absent in cancers.  (+info)

Mutation of a self-processing site in caspase-8 compromises its apoptotic but not its nonapoptotic functions in bacterial artificial chromosome-transgenic mice. (8/40)

Caspase-8, the proximal enzyme in the death-induction pathway of the TNF/nerve growth factor receptor family, is activated upon juxtaposition of its molecules within the receptor complexes and is then self-processed. Caspase-8 also contributes to the regulation of cell survival and growth, but little is known about the similarities or the differences between the mechanisms of these nonapoptotic functions and of the enzyme's apoptotic activity. In this study, we report that in bacterial artificial chromosome-transgenic mice, in which the aspartate residue upstream of the initial self-processing site in caspase-8 (D387) was replaced by alanine, induction of cell death by Fas is compromised. However, in contrast to caspase-8-deficient mice, which die in utero at mid-gestation, the mice mutated at D387 were born alive and seemed to develop normally. Moreover, mice with the D387A mutation showed normal in vitro growth responses of T lymphocytes to stimulation of their Ag receptor as well as of B lymphocytes to stimulation by LPS, normal differentiation of bone marrow macrophage precursors in response to M-CSF, and normal generation of myeloid colonies by the bone marrow hematopoietic progenitors, all of which are compromised in cells deficient in caspase-8. These finding indicated that self-processing of activated caspase-8 is differentially involved in the different functions of this enzyme: it is needed for the induction of cell death through the extrinsic cell death pathway but not for nonapoptotic functions of caspase-8.  (+info)

Alström syndrome (AS) is a rare, autosomal recessive disorder characterized by progressive cone-rod dystrophy, childhood obesity, sensorineural hearing impairment, type 2 diabetes, hypogonadism, and additional abnormalities. Herein we report a 29-year-old man with progressive cone-rod dystrophy, hearing impairment, liver cirrhosis, bilateral cryptorchidism with hypergonadotropic hypogonadism, and type2 diabetes. He had severe insulin resistance and required high-dose insulin to treat his hyperglycemia. Genetic testingrevealed a mutation in exon 8 (c.4746C | A) of the Alström syndrome protein 1 (ALMS1) gene and this is the first report of this mutation in AS. It is difficult to lead to correct diagnosis without genetic test, and physicians should suspect AS when patients show early onset visual dysfunction, obesity, or type 2 diabetes.

Alström syndrome, also called Alstrom-Halgren syndrome, is a rare genetic disorder caused by mutations in the gene ALMS1. It is among the rarest genetic disorders in the world, as currently it has only 266 reported cases in medical literature and over 501 known cases in 47 countries. It was first described by Carl-Henry Alström in Sweden in 1959. Alstrom syndrome is sometimes confused with Bardet-Biedl syndrome, which has similar symptoms. Bardet-Biedl syndrome tends to have later onset in its symptoms. The likelihood of two carrier parents both passing the gene and therefore having a child affected by the syndrome is 25% with each pregnancy. The likelihood of having a child who is only a carrier of the gene is 50% with each pregnancy. The likelihood of a child receiving normal genes from both parents and being considered to be genetically normal is 25%. The risk for carrying the gene is equivalent for both males and females.

A mutation in the tub gene causes maturity-onset obesity, insulin resistance, and sensory deficits. In contrast to the rapid juvenile-onset weight gain seen in diabetes (db) and obese (ob) mice, obesity in tubby mice develops gradually, and strongly resembles the late-onset obesity seen in the human population. Excessive deposition of adipose tissue eventually leads to a twofold increase of body weight. Tubby mice also suffer retinal degeneration and neurosensory hearing loss. The tripartite character of the tubby phenotype shows striking similarity to human obesity syndromes, such as Alstrom and Bardet-Biedl. Here we report the identification of a G --| T transversion in a candidate gene that abolishes a donor splice site in the 3 coding region and results in a larger transcript containing the unspliced intron. This alteration is predicted to replace the 44-carboxyterminal amino acids with a 20-amino-acid sequence not found in the wide-type protein. Additionally, a second, prematurely

But what if I should discover that the least among them all, the poorest of all the beggars, the most impudent of all the offenders, the very enemy himself that these are within me, and that I myself stand in need of the alms of my own kindness that I myself am the enemy who must be loved what then? As a rule, the Christian s attitude is then reversed; there is no longer any question of love or long-suffering; we say to the brother within us Raca, and condemn and rage against ourselves. We hide it from the world; we refuse to admit ever having met this least among the lowly in ourselves. ~Carl Jung ...
As an aside: isnt it interesting that Jesus gives as an example of how one should give alms something which is physiologically almost impossible. What on earth does it mean, in practice, for the left hand not to know what the right hand is doing? It suggests the kind of lack of personal coordination that only a person who isnt a stable self can manage. Im not quite sure what is being recommended here, but I got a hint of what it might mean not long ago. After some time of going along with the seemingly endless requests for money from a friend whom I had been supporting, I was tempted to do some accounting and work out how much I had given him over time as part of a way of trying to put some parameters into place as to what my giving and our relationship might look like in the future. Mercifully Im not a very good accountant, but in any case, half-way through my record-checking exercise, I realised that I was, as it were, grasping onto my own generosity, attempting to make of it something ...

Results Females in all three groups had significantly increased septal myocardial ECV compared with males (0.29±0.03 vs 0.25±0.03, p,0.01). Septal myocardial ECV was higher in ALMS than hypertensive and controls (0.28±0.02 vs 0.25±0.03 vs 0.24±0.03, p,0.05). Three male older ALMS patients (mean 43±5 years vs 27±10 years) without a history of infantile CM had patchy diffuse LE in non-coronary artery territories with an increased ECV compared to remote normal myocardium (ECV 0.41±0.08 vs 0.27±0.03, p,0.05). MAPSE was reduced in patients with ALMS and hypertension compared to controls (13±2 cm/s vs 12±3 cm/s vs 17±2 cm/s, p,0.01. There were no differences in LV ejection fraction, LV mass or LA volumes. Septal myocardial ECV was negatively correlated with a MAPSE in patients with ALMS (r=−0.64, p,0.05). NT-BNP was not correlated with septal ECV but was increased in patients with LGE (median 178 pmol/l vs 44 pmol/l).. ...
The studys data will allow clinicians to gain a unique insight into the efficacy and safety of these commonly used therapies in the treatment of renal and non-renal lupus in a racially diverse population, said Ellen Ginzler, MD (SUNY-Downstate Medical Center), the principal US investigator for the ALMS study group. This study was sponsored by the Aspreva Pharmaceuticals Corporation as part of the Roche-Aspreva collaboration agreement.

Lawrence was chief among the seven deacons who served the Roman Church during the mid-third century. The young cleric held a position of great trust, caring for the goods of the Church and distributing its alms among the poor. He was arrested under the Emperor Valerian in 258, laid upon a gridiron
This is what you shall do: Love the earth and sun and the animals, despise riches, give alms to every one that asks, stand up for the stupid and crazy, devote your income and labor to others, hate tyrants, argue not concerning God, have patience and indulgence toward the people, take off your hat to nothing known or unknown or to any man or number of men, go freely with powerful uneducated persons and with the young and with the mothers of families, read these leaves in the open air every season of every year of your life, re examine all you have been told at school or church or in any book, dismiss whatever insults your own soul, and your very flesh shall be a great poem and have the richest fluency not only in its words but in the silent lines of its lips and face and between the lashes of your eyes and in every motion and joint of your body. . . . The poet shall not spend his time in unneeded work. He shall know that the ground is always ready ploughed and manured . . . . others may not know ...
The whey and cream man stopped his truck in front of the alms mans house and eased himself out onto the sideways. The freezing-mechanism had broken, leaking Freon and bubo-gas in through the hatchback window behind the drivers seat. He planted his two feet on the pavement and shook his left arm then his right, wiggled his legs to and fro and then craned his neck as far back as it would go. At that exact moment, 27 ½ minutes past eight, the Mercury Fish truck came caroming round the corner, the back doors flapping madly, the drivers loader hanging off the door-latch, one hand wrapped around the inside of the door, the other flailing wildly, his eyes bigger than goose eggs. A peg-blue sky scurried on above the whey and cream mans head, reminding him of less timely times, times when time mattered little, and what of it did, mattered for a short time then went scurrying away. The only time that mattered to him was whey-and-milk time which occurred each and every morning at exactly 27 ½ minutes ...
Paulo Coelho. The group went down the street: the soldiers were escorting a man condemned to the gallows.. - That man was no good commented a disciple with Awas-el Salam. - Once I gave him a silver coin to help him to get out of his misery and he did nothing important.. - Perhaps he is no good, but he may now be going to the gallows because of you. Maybe he used the money you gave him to buy a dagger, which he ended up using in the crime committed. In that case, your hands are also bloodied. Instead of trying to support him with love and kindness, you preferred to give him alms and rid yourself of your obligation.. Welcome to Share with Friends - Free Texts for a Free Internet. ...
BANGKOK (Reuters) - Thais marked the birthday of King Bhumibol Adulyadej, the worlds longest-reigning monarch, early on Saturday, by giving alms at temples around the country.
Alms (Zakat) is a remedy for economic recession The economy is the power of nations and peoples, especially in this age when some of the nation has become hostage to the Section, but rather the dividing line between progress and underdevelopment. Thus, economic studies have taken center stage and have preoccupied finance, sociologists and the economy. In the field of economic transactions, Islam is replete with the rules and disciplines governing both consumer,...

It is somehow heartening to discover were hard wired for behavior that all the great spiritual traditions have urged for centuries. In 2 Corinthians 9:7, Paul exhorts, Every man according as he purposeth in his heart, so let him give; not grudgingly, or of necessity: for God loveth a cheerful giver. In the Quran, the practice of zakat, or alms giving, is one of the Five Pillars of Islam; it is intended not only to provide welfare for needy Muslims but to purify the spirit of the giver (who is cleansed of greediness and selfishness) and the receiver (who is saved from the humiliation of begging and envy). The Torah orders, If there is a needy person among you, dont harden your heart; dont shut your hand against your needy kin. For there will never cease to be people with need in your land, which is why I command you to open your heart to the poor and to the needy kin in your land ...
Occasionally, in the spontaneity of the present moment, one finds a need, and true loving-kindness arises. There is no intention to perform an act of charity, no plan to engage in a service project; simply the spontaneous arising of compassionate action. This is actual love, agape. There is no do-er. It is the action described by Jesus when he says, Giving alms to the poor, dont let your left hand know what your right hand is doing. It is the action described by Buddha in the Sutras: When a Bodhisattva performs an act of charity, he has no intention to be charitable, and no concept of charity ...

Abstract: Obesity is a major risk factor for insulin resistance (IR) and its attendant complications. The pathogenic mechanisms linking them remain poorly understood, partly due to a lack of intermediary monogenic human phenotypes. Here, we report on a monogenic form of IR-prone obesity, Alström syndrome (ALMS). Twenty-three subjects with monogenic or polygenic obesity underwent hyperinsulinaemic-euglycemic clamping with concomitant adipose tissue (AT) microdialysis and an in-depth analysis of subcutaneous AT histology. We have shown a relative adipose tissue failure in monogenic obese cohort; a finding supported by observations in a novel conditional mouse model (Almsflin/flin) and ALMS1-silenced human primary adipocytes. Whereas, selective reactivation of ALMS1 gene in adipose tissue of an ALMS conditional knockdown mice model (Almsflin/flin;Adipo-Cre+/-) restores systemic insulin sensitivity and glucose tolerance. Hence, we show for the first time the relative adipose tissue failure in human ...

To those people who were taught at childhood that only pure hard work should be rewarded, and that giving alms would encourage a class of derelicts, I wish to make a point...Pan-handling will never proliferate if patronized, because unlike Hugh Heffner, who capitalizes on the baser instincts of humans, or General Dynamics that profits on destruction, the old lady with the paper cup and the man in the wheel chair try to make money off emotions that are scarce among human beings - EMPATHY and GENEROSITY. Please put programs such as this in the proper perspective. Compare it to the way the rest of us earn our daily bread...Remember that the people you analyzed do not have politicians or the media to support their cause.

To me it takes a Bigger One to recognize a Smaller One. To those out there who have Holier than Thou attitude, this parable is for you…. There was once two Buddhist monasteries built facing each other. One was new and run by young monks and the other was old and run by older monks. One day the two of the monks from the monastery met and greeted each other while on their way to the market to collect some alms. The young monk dressed in beautiful and colourful robes whereas the old monk dressed in shabby and worn out robes. The old monk greeted the young monk and said; Amittabha, wow you look like a Buddha whereas the young monk replied by saying; Amittabha, but you look like a piece of shit. After a short journey down the road, the young monk somewhat felt a bit guilty of what he replied asked the old monk if he was offended? The old monk said not at all… not at all… because in the minds of an enlightened one, everyone looks like a Buddha, but in the mind of a piece of shit, everyone ...
Would you know who is the greatest saint in the world: It is not he who prays most or fasts most, it is not he who gives most alms or is most eminent for temperance, chastity or justice; but it is he who is always thankful to God, who wills everything that God wills, who receives everything as an instance of Gods goodness and has a heart always ready to praise God for it ...
