Metabolic acidosis-induced retinopathy in the neonatal rat. (1/540)

PURPOSE: Carbon dioxide (CO2)-induced retinopathy (CDIR) in the neonatal rat, analogous to human retinopathy of prematurity (ROP), was previously described by our group. In this model, it is possible that CO2-associated acidosis provides a biochemical mechanism for CDIR. Therefore, the effect of pure metabolic acidosis on the developing retinal vasculature of the neonatal rat was investigated. METHODS: A preliminary study of arterial blood pH was performed to confirm acidosis in our model. In neonatal rats with preplaced left carotid artery catheters, acute blood gas samples were taken 1 to 24 hours after gavage with either NH4Cl 1 millimole/100 g body weight or saline. In the subsequent formal retinopathy study, 150 newborn Sprague-Dawley rats were raised in litters of 25 and randomly assigned to be gavaged twice daily with either NH4Cl 1 millimole/100 g body weight (n = 75) or saline (n = 75) from day 2 to day 7. After 5 days of recovery, rats were killed, and retinal vasculature was assessed using fluorescein perfusion and ADPase staining techniques. RESULTS: In the preliminary pH study, the minimum pH after NH4Cl gavage was 7.10+/-0.10 at 3 hours (versus 7.37+/-0.03 in controls, mean +/- SD, P < 0.01). In the formal retinopathy study, preretinal neovascularization occurred in 36% of acidotic rats versus 5% of controls (P < 0.001). Acidotic rats showed growth retardation (final weight 16.5+/-3.0 g versus 20.2+/-2.6 g, P < 0.001). The ratio of vascularized to total retinal area was smaller in acidotic rats (94%+/-4% versus 96%+/-2%, P < 0.001). CONCLUSIONS: Metabolic acidosis alone induces neovascularization similar to ROP in the neonatal rat. This suggests a possible biochemical mechanism by which high levels of CO2 induce neovascularization and supports the suggestion that acidosis may be an independent risk factor for ROP.  (+info)

Specific inhibition of ADP-induced platelet aggregation by clopidogrel in vitro. (2/540)

1. The thienopyridine clopidogrel is a specific inhibitor of ADP-induced platelet aggregation ex vivo. No direct effects of clopidogrel (< or = 100 microM) on platelet aggregation in vitro have been described so far. 2. Possible in vitro antiaggregatory effects (turbidimetry) of clopidogrel were studied in human platelet-rich plasma and in washed platelets. 3. Incubation of platelet-rich plasma with clopidogrel (< or = 100 microM) for up to 8 h did not result in any inhibition of ADP (6 microM)-induced platelet aggregation. 4. Incubation of washed platelets with clopidogrel resulted in a time- (maximum effects after 30 min) and concentration-dependent (IC50 1.9+/-0.3 microM) inhibition of ADP (6 microM)-induced platelet aggregation. Clopidogrel (30 microM) did not inhibit collagen (2.5 microg ml(-1))-, U46619 (1 microM)- or thrombin (0.1 u ml(-1))-induced platelet aggregation. The inhibition of ADP-induced aggregation by clopidogrel (30 microM) was insurmountable indicating a non-equilibrium antagonism of ADP actions. The R enantiomer SR 25989 C (30 microM) was significantly less active than clopidogrel (30 microM) in inhibiting platelet aggregation (32+/-5% vs 70+/-1% inhibition, P < 0.05, n = 5). 5. In washed platelets, clopidogrel (< or = 30 microM) did not significantly reverse the inhibition of prostaglandin E1 (1 microM)-induced platelet cyclic AMP formation by ADP (6 microM). 6. The antiaggregatory effects of clopidogrel were unchanged when the compound was removed from the platelet suspension. However, platelet inhibition by clopidogrel was completely abolished when albumin (350 mg ml(-1)) was present in the test buffer. 7. It is concluded that clopidogrel specifically inhibits ADP-induced aggregation of washed platelets in vitro without hepatic bioactivation. Inhibition of ADP-induced platelet aggregation by clopidogrel in vitro occurs in the absence of measurable effects on the reversal of PGE1-stimulated cyclic AMP by ADP.  (+info)

Functional characterization of rat ecto-ATPase and ecto-ATP diphosphohydrolase after heterologous expression in CHO cells. (3/540)

The recently cloned ecto-ATPase and ecto-apyrase (ecto-ATP diphosphohydrolase) are plasma-membrane-bound enzymes responsible for the extracellular degradation of nucleoside 5'-triphosphates and nucleoside 5'-diphosphates. We expressed the rat-derived enzymes in CHO cells to compare their molecular and functional properties. Sequence-specific polyclonal antibodies differentiate between the two proteins and reveal identical molecular masses of 70-80 kDa. Both enzymes are stimulated by either Ca2+ or Mg2+ and reveal a broad substrate specificity towards purine and pyrimidine nucleotides. Whereas ecto-apyrase hydrolyzes nucleoside 5'-diphosphates at a rate approximately 20-30% lower than nucleoside-5'-triphosphates, ecto-ATPase hydrolyzes nucleoside-5'-diphosphates only to a marginal extent. The sensitivity of the two enzymes to the inhibitors of P2 receptors suramin, PPADS and reactive blue differs. Hydrolysis of ATP by ecto-ATPase leads to the accumulation in the medium of extracellular ADP as an intermediate product, whereas ecto-apyrase dephosphorylates ATP directly to AMP. Our results suggest that previous data describing extracellular hydrolysis of ATP by a variety of intact cellular systems with unidentified ecto-nucleotidases may be explained by the coexpression of ecto-ATPase and ecto-apyrase.  (+info)

A nod factor binding lectin with apyrase activity from legume roots. (4/540)

A lectin isolated from the roots of the legume, Dolichos biflorus, binds to Nod factors produced by rhizobial strains that nodulate this plant and has a deduced amino acid sequence with no significant homology to any lectin reported to date. This lectin also is an enzyme that catalyzes the hydrolysis of phosphoanhydride bonds of nucleoside di- and triphosphates; the enzyme activity is increased in the presence of carbohydrate ligands. This lectin-nucleotide phosphohydrolase (LNP) has a substrate specificity characteristic of the apyrase category of phosphohydrolases, and its sequence contains four motifs characteristic of this category of enzymes. LNP is present on the surface of the root hairs, and treatment of roots with antiserum to LNP inhibits their ability to undergo root hair deformation and to form nodules on exposure to rhizobia. These properties suggest that this protein may play a role in the rhizobium-legume symbiosis and/or in a related carbohydrate recognition event endogenous to the plant.  (+info)

Inhibition of an ecto-ATP-diphosphohydrolase by azide. (5/540)

Cell surface ATPases (ecto-ATPases or E-ATPases) hydrolyze extracellular ATP and other nucleotides. Regulation of extracellular nucleotide concentration is one of their major proposed functions. Based on enzymatic characterization, the E-ATPases have been divided into two subfamilies, ecto-ATPases and ecto-ATP-diphosphohydrolases (ecto-ATPDases). In the presence of either Mg2+ or Ca2+, ecto-ATPDases, including proteins closely related to CD39, hydrolyze nucleoside diphosphates in addition to nucleoside triphosphates and are inhibited by millimolar concentrations of azide, whereas ecto-ATPases appear to lack these two properties. This report presents the first systematic kinetic study of a purified ecto-ATPDase, the chicken oviduct ecto-ATPDase (Strobel, R.S., Nagy, A.K., Knowles, A.F., Buegel, J. & Rosenberg, M.O. (1996) J. Biol. Chem. 271, 16323-16331), with respect to ATP and ADP, and azide inhibition. Km values for ATP obtained at pH 6.4 and 7.4 are 10-30 times lower than for ADP and the catalytic efficiency is greater with ATP as the substrate. The enzyme also exhibits complicated behavior toward azide. Variable inhibition by azide is observed depending on nucleotide substrate, divalent ion, and pH. Nearly complete inhibition by 5 mm azide is obtained when MgADP is the substrate and when assays are conducted at pH 6-6.4. Azide inhibition diminishes when ATP is the substrate, Ca2+ as the activating ion, and at higher pH. The greater efficacy of azide in inhibiting ADP hydrolysis compared to ATP hydrolysis may be related to the different modes of inhibition with the two nucleotide substrates. While azide decreases both Vmax and Km for ADP, it does not alter the Km for ATP. These results suggest that the apparent affinity of azide for the E.ADP complex is significantly greater than that for the free enzyme or E.ATP. The response of the enzyme to three other inhibitors, fluoride, vanadate, and pyrophosphate, is also dependent on substrate and pH. Taken together, these results are indicative of a discrimination between ADP and ATP by the enzyme. A mechanism of azide inhibition is proposed.  (+info)

Insertion of atToc34 into the chloroplastic outer membrane is assisted by at least two proteinaceous components in the import system. (6/540)

Toc34 is a member of the outer membrane translocon complex that mediates the initial stage of protein import into chloroplasts. Toc34, like most outer membrane proteins, is synthesized in the cytosol at its mature size without a cleavable transit peptide. The majority of outer membrane proteins do not require thermolysin-sensitive components on the chloroplastic surface or ATP for their insertion into the outer membrane. However, different results have been obtained concerning the factors required for Toc34 insertion into the outer membrane. Using an Arabidopsis homologue of pea Toc34, atToc34, we show that the insertion of atToc34 was greatly reduced by thermolysin pretreatment of chloroplasts as assayed either by protease digestion or by alkaline extraction. The insertion was also dependent on the presence of ATP or GTP. A mutant of atToc34 with the GTP-binding domain deleted still required ATP for optimal insertion, indicating that ATP was used by other protein components in the import system. The ATP-supported insertion was observed even in thermolysin-pretreated chloroplasts, suggesting that the protein component responsible for ATP-stimulated insertion is a different protein from the thermolysin-sensitive component that assists atToc34 insertion.  (+info)

Platelet-released ADP stabilizes PAF-induced rabbit platelet aggregation by stabilizing intracellular calcium. (7/540)

AIM: To examine whether platelet-released adenosine diphosphate (ADP) would contribute to the stabilization of rabbit platelet aggregation induced by platelet activating factor (PAF). METHODS: Rabbit platelet aggregation induced by PAF was measured turbimetrically. ADP release from rabbit platelets stimulated by PAF was determined by HPLC. Intracellular Ca2+ was measured using Ca(2+)-sensitive fluorescent indicator Fura 2-AM. RESULTS: PAF > or = 1 nmol.L-1 induced full platelet aggregation, which did not deaggregate over 5 min after aggregation reached peak. Platelet aggregation was deaggregated in a concentration-dependent manner by subsequent addition of ADP scavenger ATP-diphosphohydrolase (apyrase) at 5-100 mg.L-1. PAF 3 nmol.L-1 stimulated release of ADP (29% vs 6% of control), and elicited a rapid rise in intracellular calcium ([Ca2+]i) which peaked at approximately 15 s. Then the [Ca2+]i gradually decayed from 585 +/- 80 nmol.L-1 within 100 s to a low level (364 +/- 82 nmol.L-1). Apyrase 100 mg.L-1, added 2 min after PAF, reduced [Ca2+]i to a lower level (171 +/- 29 nmol.L-1). CONCLUSION: Platelet-released ADP stabilizes PAF-induced rabbit platelet aggregation by stabilizing [Ca2+]i at elevated level.  (+info)

CD39-L4 is a secreted human apyrase, specific for the hydrolysis of nucleoside diphosphates. (8/540)

The human ecto-apyrase gene family consists of five reported members (CD39, CD39-L1, CD39-L2, CD39-L3, and CD39-L4). The family can be subdivided into two groups by conservation of proposed structural domains. The CD39, CD39-L1, and CD39-L3 genes all encode hydrophobic portions in their carboxy and amino termini, serving as transmembrane domains for CD39 and potentially for the other two members. CD39-L2 and CD39-L4 genes encode hydrophobic portions in their amino termini, suggesting that they might encode secreted apyrases. We demonstrate that the CD39-L4 gene encodes the first reported human secreted ecto-apyrase. COS-7 cells transfected with a CD39-L4 expression construct utilizing the naturally occurring leader peptide express recombinant protein outside of the cells. This expression can be blocked by brefeldin A, a chemical that inhibits a step in mammalian secretory pathways. We also demonstrate expression of CD39-L4 message in macrophages, suggesting that the protein is present in the circulation. Furthermore, we show that CD39-L4 is an E-type apyrase, is dependent on calcium and magnesium cations, and has high degree of specificity for NDPs over NTPs as enzymatic substrates. A potential physiological role in hemostasis and platelet aggregation is presented.  (+info)

Although dexamethasone (DEX), a synthetic glucocorticoid receptor (GR) analog with profound effects on energy metabolism, immune system, and hypothalamic-pituitary-adrenal axis, is widely used therapeutically, its impact on the brain is poorly understood. The aim of the present study was to explore the effect of repeated low-dose DEX administration on the activity and expression of the ectonucleotidase enzymes which hydrolyze and therefore control extracellular ATP and adenosine concentrations in the synaptic cleft. Ectonucleotidases tested were ectonucleoside triphosphate diphosphohydrolase 1-3 (NTPDase1-3) and ecto-5-nucleotidase (eN), whereas the effects were evaluated in two brain areas that show different sensitivity to glucocorticoid action, hippocampus, and cerebral cortex. In the hippocampus, but not in cerebral cortex, modest level of neurodegenerative changes as well as increase in ATP, ADP, and AMP hydrolysis and upregulation of NTPDase1 and eN mRNA expression ensued under t...he ...

Epub Apr 01, 2011 ISSN 1414-431X. http://dx.doi.org/10.1590/S0100-879X2011007500044.. Gadolinium (Gd) blocks intra- and extracellular ATP hydrolysis. We determined whether Gd affects vascular reactivity to contractile responses to phenylephrine (PHE) by blocking aortic ectonucleoside triphosphate diphosphohydrolase (E-NTPDase). Wistar rats of both sexes (260-300 g, 23 females, 7 males) were used. Experiments were performed before and after incubation of aortic rings with 3 µM Gd. Concentration-response curves to PHE (0.1 nM to 0.1 mM) were obtained in the presence and absence of endothelium, after incubation with 100 µM L-NAME, 10 µM losartan, or 10 µM enalaprilat. Gd significantly increased the maximum response (control: 72.3 ± 3.5; Gd: 101.3 ± 6.4%) and sensitivity (control: 6.6 ± 0.1; Gd: 10.5 ± 2.8%) to PHE. To investigate the blockade of ...

ADPase (adenosine diphosphatase) was assayed in rat liver homogenates with [beta-32P]ADP as substrate. The activity had a pH optimum of 8.0 and was strongly activated by Mg2+. The intracellular localization was determined by analytical subcellular fractionation with single-step sucrose-density-gradient centrifugation. Selective membrane perturbants were used to enhance the resolution of the various organelles. ADPase was localized to the mitochondria. Mitochondria were isolated by differential centrifugation and subfractionated by selective disruption of the inner and outer membranes. The intramitochondrial localization of ADPase was compared with various marker enzymes and was shown to be concentrated in the outer-membrane fractions. The effects of various inhibitors on the ADPase activity were determined and the possibility that the activity could be due to known enzyme systems was considered. It is concluded that ADP degradation is due to a hitherto unrecognized mitochondrial enzyme. ...

The 105,000 x g supernatant fluid (S[subscript HS]) from extracts of pea seedlings (Pisum sativum, var. Alaska) etiolated for 60 hours yielded a very potent adenosine triphosphatase activity. This activity was designated as an apyrase when the reaction stoichiometry indicated that adenosine triphosphate (ATP) was hydrolyzed to adenosine monophosphate (AMP) and two moles of inorganic phosphate (P[subscript i]). The apyrase has been purified 88-fold with 40% recovery from acetone powders of the S[subscript HS]. This 6-day procedure involved filtration of the acetone powder solutions through Sephadex G-200 and G-75 followed by protamine sulfate treatment to remove polyanionic material. After film dialysis the enzyme activity was chromatographed on carboxymethyl cellulose (CMC) with a gradient NaCl elution. A second more rapid purification scheme was used to purify extracts of acetone powders to 79- to 100-fold with overall yield of 67% to ,100%. This 15-hour scheme involved protamine treatment of ...

Lung cancer is the leading cause of cancer death in both sexes worldwide and has a predicted 5-year survival rate of ,20%. Immunotherapy targeting immune checkpoints such as the programmed death 1 (PD-1) signaling pathway has led to a shift of paradigm in the treatment of advanced non-small-cell lung cancer (NSCLC) but remains without effect in ∼80% of patients. Accumulating evidence suggests that several immunosuppressive mechanisms may work together in NSCLC. The contribution and cooperation between different immunosuppressive mechanisms in NSCLC remain unknown. Recently, the CD39-adenosine pathway has gained increasing attention as a crucial immunosuppressive mechanism and possible target for immunotherapy. Immune cells were extracted from lung and tumor tissue after lung resection in 12 patients by combined enzymatic and mechanical tissue disaggregation. A multiparameter flow cytometry panel was established to investigate the expression and coexpression of CD39 and PD-1 on key lymphocyte ...

The ectonucleotidases CD39 and CD73 hydrolyze extracellular ATP and ADP to generate adenosine, which binds to adenosine receptors and inhibits T cell and NK cell responses, thereby suppressing the immune system. The generation of adenosine via the CD39/CD73 pathway is recognized as a major mechanism of Treg immunosuppressive function. The number of CD39+ Tregs is increased in some human cancers, and the importance of CD39+ Tregs in promoting tumor growth and metastasis has been demonstrated using several in vivo models. Here, we addressed whether CD39 is expressed by tumor cells and whether CD39+ tumor cells mediate immunosuppression via the adenosine pathway. Immunohistochemical staining of normal and tumor tissues revealed that CD39 expression is significantly higher in several types of human cancer than in normal tissues. In cancer specimens, CD39 is expressed by infiltrating lymphocytes, the tumor stroma and tumor cells. Furthermore, the expression of CD39 at the cell surface of tumor cells ...

The cell attached configuration was an important tool in our work in assessing the role of second messengers because of its unique features: 1) it allows for controlled compartmentalization of the intra- and extracellular milieux, and 2) it isolates membrane patches, creating specific areas that can be surrounded by other areas exposed to different pharmacological stimuli.. Taking advantage of the cell-attached condition, we observed that pore formation occurred both in the patch and in the rest of the membrane, despite preincubation of cells with oxidized ATP in the pipette solution at a concentration previously shown to block P2X7 receptors (Fig. 2B). The response was the same when oxidized ATP was used in the bath and ATP applied in the pipette solution (Fig. 2G). By using apyrase (an ectonucleotidase) in similar conditions (Fig. 2, D and E), we ruled out the idea that this effect could be a mere artifact due to mechanical stimulation, a well-known mechanism of ATP release in most cell ...

A-317491 is a potent and selective antagonist of P2X3 and P2X2/3 receptors. In the present studies, the ability of [3H]A-317491 to label recombinant human P2X2/3 and P2X3 receptors was characterized. Using membranes prepared from 1321N1 cells expressing P2X2/3 receptors, [3H]A-317491 specifically labeled high-affinity (Kd = 0.9 nM) recognition sites. High-affinity [3H]A-317491 binding was not detected in membrane preparations from native 1321N1 cells or cells expressing homomeric P2X1, P2X2, or P2X3 receptors. Specific [3H]A-317491 P2X3 receptors could only be reliably detected following treatment of intact P2X3 receptor-expressing cells with apyrase (1 U/ml) both before and during membrane preparation. Under these conditions, [3H]A-317491 also labeled high-affinity (Kd = 9 nM) binding sites. Lower affinity binding components (Kd values of 87-790 nM) were detected in both assays using higher ligand concentrations that likely represent nonfunctional recognition sites. [3H]A-317491 binding to both ...

Concordant with data derived from A2A-null CD4+/CD25− (Fig. 4 D), proliferation responses of CD4+/CD25− T cells obtained from Cd39-null mice are exaggerated after 6 d of stimulation, which is coincident with the up-regulation of adenosine receptor A2A in CD4+/CD25− cells (Fig. 5 C). As a further confirmation of direct connections between CD39 expression and adenosine generation, effects of the addition of soluble exogenous NTPDases (apyrase grade VII) to Cd39-null T cell cultures were tested. This reconstitution effectively suppresses the abnormal proliferation of CD4+/CD25− cells (Fig. 5 C) and restores anergy within the T reg cell pool (not depicted).. We next examined the suppressive ability of WT and Cd39-null T reg cells to inhibit the proliferation of WT or Cd39-null effector cells, respectively. An in vitro system was chosen whereby effector cells were activated with anti-CD3 and anti-CD28. This system was chosen to eliminate the expression of CD39 on stimulating cells, which ...

Background Ovarian cancer (OvCA) tissues show abundant expression of the ectonucleotidases CD39 and CD73 which generate immunomodulatory adenosine, thereby inhibiting cytotoxic lymphocytes. Little, however, is known about the effect of adenosine on myeloid cells. Considering that tumor associated macrophages (TAM) and myeloid-derived suppressor cells (MDSC) constitute up to 20 % of OvCA tissue, we investigated the effect of adenosine on myeloid cells and explored a possible contribution of myeloid cells to adenosine generation in vitro and ex vivo. Methods Monocytes were used as human blood-derived myeloid cells. After co-incubation with SK-OV-3 or OAW-42 OvCA cells, monocyte migration was determined in transwell assays. For conversion into M2-polarized

Ecto-ATPase is an enzyme which belongs to the group of the E-NTPDases. Those enzymes are ectoenzymes, and that they participate in the metabolism of extracellular molecules. Ecto-ATPase participate in metabolism of nucleoside triphosphate and nucleoside diphosphate with higher affinity for the nucleoside triphosphate. The metabolism of extracellular molecules with the appropriate enzymes is one of the steps in purinergic signaling that mediates a variety of physiological and pathophysiological processes. Therefore it is considered that value of ecto-ATPase activity in human serum may be a potential factor in the diagnosis of diseases associated with purinergic signaling. Ecto-ATPase activity in the human serum was measured by Fiske-Subbarow method, and the average value of 13 healthy samples was 992.3±281.2 nmol/ml/h. Results showed that the most suitable sample volume for the measuring enzyme activity is 50 μL, incubation time on 37 °C is 60 min and that 100 μL 1.12 mol/L TCA is required ...

The paucity of detectable apoptotic cells in tissues where many cells undergo apoptosis demonstrates the efficiency of cell-clearance mechanisms. Apoptotic cells are thought to release factors that signal their presence to scavenger cells such as macrophages, but the nature of these signals is unclear (see commentary by Gregory). Elliott et al. found that supernatant from thymocytes in which apoptosis was induced recruited more monocytes in a migration assay than did supernatant from live cells. Similarly, supernatant from apoptotic cells introduced into a subcutaneous air pouch in mice recruited more macrophages than did supernatant from live cells. Treatment of the supernatant from the apoptotic cells with apyrase, which hydrolyzes nucleoside triphosphates and diphosphates, blocked the recruitment of macrophages to the air pouch. Of various nucleotides tested, ATP and UTP were the most efficient at recruiting monocytes in in vitro migration assays, and both nucleotides were detectable in the ...

This is an exciting time for the region, as for the first time, a community-based dialysis clinic will be available to patients living in the APY Lands, Ms Paterson said.. Patients will have access to brand new dialysis equipment in a clinic that will provide world-class dialysis treatment, with clinical oversight provided by nephrologists from SA Healths Rural Support Service and the Central Adelaide Local Health Network.. We know that remote patients often have to relocate from home to receive frequent dialysis treatment, and by the opening of this clinic we are hoping this will reduce. We are proud to be working with Purple House having provided funding towards the build and ongoing support for this project, to ensure we can continue to provide better support and care for South Australians living in remote areas.. Director of Dialysis and Senior Staff Nephrologist, Prof Stephen McDonald, said the clinic will provide dialysis patients the opportunity to receive safer care closer to home, ...
In the pig parotid gland, ATPDase was mainly associated with duct epithelium, with very little, if any, immunoreactivity on acinar cells. Myoepithelial cells dispersed among acini produced a significant signal. There have been reports of Ca2+-dependent ATPases associated with isolated parotid acinar cells, but as judged by their biochemical properties, these ATPases are different from ATPDases. However, a nucleoside triphosphatase described by Sato et al. (29) in bovine parotid gland and an apyrase described by Valenzuela et al. (34) in a microsomal fraction of rat salivary gland appear to correspond to the ATPDase described in this study and hence could well be associated with ductal epithelial and myoepithelial cells. In agreement with these findings, some studies on rat parotid acini show very little ecto-ATPase activity (9). Some P2Zpurinoceptors have been described on rat parotid acinar cells, which respond to ATP and mediate a Ca2+increase caused by both an influx and a mobilization from ...

in context of physiology and pathology. Literature data indicate that ectonucleotidases may be part of complex molecular network which may be modulated by ovarian steroids. Based on this findings, and the fact that female sex steroids, particularly 17β-estradiol (E2) play an essential role in the modulation of hippocampal synaptic plasticity therefore influencing hippocampal dependent learning and memory, we hypothesized that steroid hormones, in particular E2 has potential to modulate the activity and expression of ectonucleotidases (NTPDase 1-3 and eN) in hippocampal synaptosomes of male and female rats. Also, the aim of this doctoral dissertation was to determine the impact of steroid hormones on eN after repeated administration of 17α- estradiol, E2 and progesterone (P4) for seven consecutive days in hippocampus of both sexes. It is shown that the activity of the examined ectonucleotidases fluctuates across the estrous cycle in the hippocampal synaptosomes of female rats, while significant ...
Head and neck cancer is the sixth most common cancer worldwide. Each year 50,000 individuals in the United States and 500,000 worldwide are diagnosed with head and neck squamous cell carcinoma (HNSCC). The majority of HNSCC is identified in advanced stage, when cure rates are low, largely because there is no effective screening program available. Furthermore, minority patients and those of low socioeconomic status (SES) suffer disproportionately from this disease. Building on prior work, this study examines whether the combination of soluble CD44 (solCD44), hyaluronic acid (HA), IL-8 and total protein holds promise for early detection of HNSCC. In our previous work, we determined that a solCD44 oral rinse test distinguished HNSCC cases from benign disease (BD) controls with 62% sensitivity and 88% specificity. In this study we determined if sensitivity and specificity are improved when the model includes a panel of markers consisting of solCD44, IL-8, HA and total protein as well as demographic ...

Recently, Cdc42 has been shown to actively assist in cancer progression. Several studies have established the basis for this and hypothesized about the underlying mechanisms. Cdc42 is overexpressed in non-small cell lung cancer, colorectal adenocarcinoma, melanoma, breast cancer, and testicular cancer.[8] Elevated levels of the protein have been correlated with negative patient survival. Cdc42 has also been shown to be required for both G1-S phase progression and mitosis, and it also modulates the transcription factors SRF, STAT3, and NFkB.[8] It has been hypothesized that targeting Cdc42 in conjunction with chemotherapy may be an effective cancer treatment strategy. In one study studying the role of Cdc42 in cervical cancer, immunohistochemistry was used to detect Cdc42 expression in three types of tissues: normal cervical tissues, cervical intraepithelial neoplasia (CIN) I or below, CIN II or above, and cervical cancer tissues.[9] Cdc42 expression was gradually increased showing significant ...
... s, also known as guanine nucleotide-binding proteins, are a family of proteins that act as molecular switches inside cells, and are involved in transmitting signals from a variety of stimuli outside a cell to its interior. Their activity is regulated by factors that control their ability to bind to and hydrolyze guanosine triphosphate (GTP) to guanosine diphosphate (GDP). When they are bound to GTP, they are 'on', and, when they are bound to GDP, they are 'off'. G proteins belong to the larger group of enzymes called GTPases.. There are two classes of G proteins. The first function as monomeric small GTPases, while the second function as heterotrimeric G protein complexes. The latter class of complexes is made up of alpha (α), beta (β) and gamma (γ) subunits.[1] In addition, the beta and gamma subunits can form a stable dimeric complex referred to as the beta-gamma complex.. G proteins located within the cell are activated by G protein-coupled receptors (GPCRs) that span the cell ...
Cytoplasmic dynein, which has a molecular mass of about 1.5 megadaltons (MDa), is a dimer of dimers, containing approximately twelve polypeptide subunits: two identical "heavy chains", 520 kDa in mass, which contain the ATPase activity and are thus responsible for generating movement along the microtubule; two 74 kDa intermediate chains which are believed to anchor the dynein to its cargo; two 53-59 kDa light intermediate chains; and several light chains. The force-generating ATPase activity of each dynein heavy chain is located in its large doughnut-shaped "head", which is related to other AAA proteins, while two projections from the head connect it to other cytoplasmic structures. One projection, the coiled-coil stalk, binds to and "walks" along the surface of the microtubule via a repeated cycle of detachment and reattachment. The other projection, the extended tail, binds to the light intermediate, intermediate and light chain subunits which attach dynein to its cargo. The alternating ...
SMC dimers form a V-shaped molecule with two long coiled-coil arms.[14][15] To make such a unique structure, an SMC protomer is self-folded through anti-parallel coiled-coil interactions, forming a rod-shaped molecule. At one end of the molecule, the N-terminal and C-terminal domains together form an ATP-binding domain. The other end is called a hinge domain. Two protomers then dimerize through their hinge domains and assemble a V-shaped dimer.[16][17] The length of the coiled-coil arms is ~50 nm long. Such long "antiparallel" coiled-coils are very rare, and found only among SMC proteins (and its relatives such as Rad50). The ATP-binding domain of SMC proteins is structurally related to that of ABC transporters, a large family of transmembrane proteins that actively transport small molecules across cellular membranes. It is thought that the cycle of ATP binding and hydrolysis modulates the cycle of closing and opening of the V-shaped molecule, but the detailed mechanisms of action of SMC ...
Along with other subfamily of Rac and Rho proteins, they exert an important regulatory role specifically in cell motility and cell growth. Rac1 has ubiquitous tissue expression, and drives cell motility by formation of lamellipodia.[12] In order for cancer cells to grow and invade local and distant tissues, deregulation of cell motility is one of the hallmark events in cancer cell invasion and metastasis.[13] Overexpression of a constitutively active Rac1 V12 in mice caused a tumor that's phenotypically indistinguishable from human Kaposi's sarcoma.[14] Activating or gain-of-function mutations of Rac1 are shown to play active roles in promoting mesenchymal-type of cell movement assisted by NEDD9 and DOCK3 protein complex.[15] Such abnormal cell motility may result in epithelial mesenchymal transition (EMT) - a driving mechanism for tumor metastasis as well as drug-resistant tumor relapse.[16][17] ...
The wide variety of myosin genes found throughout the eukaryotic phyla were named according to different schemes as they were discovered. The nomenclature can therefore be somewhat confusing when attempting to compare the functions of myosin proteins within and between organisms. Skeletal muscle myosin, the most conspicuous of the myosin superfamily due to its abundance in muscle fibers, was the first to be discovered. This protein makes up part of the sarcomere and forms macromolecular filaments composed of multiple myosin subunits. Similar filament-forming myosin proteins were found in cardiac muscle, smooth muscle, and nonmuscle cells. However, beginning in the 1970s, researchers began to discover new myosin genes in simple eukaryotes[3] encoding proteins that acted as monomers and were therefore entitled Class I myosins. These new myosins were collectively termed "unconventional myosins"[7] and have been found in many tissues other than muscle. These new superfamily members have been grouped ...
The impact of KRAS mutations is heavily dependent on the order of mutations. Primary KRAS mutations generally lead to a self-limiting hyperplastic or borderline lesion, but if they occur after a previous APC mutation it often progresses to cancer.[18] KRAS mutations are more commonly observed in cecal cancers than colorectal cancers located in any other places from ascending colon to rectum.[19][20] KRAS mutation is predictive of a very poor response to panitumumab (Vectibix) and cetuximab (Erbitux) therapy in colorectal cancer.[21] Currently, the most reliable way to predict whether a colorectal cancer patient will respond to one of the EGFR-inhibiting drugs is to test for certain "activating" mutations in the gene that encodes KRAS, which occurs in 30%-50% of colorectal cancers. Studies show patients whose tumors express the mutated version of the KRAS gene will not respond to cetuximab or panitumumab.[22] Although presence of the wild-type (or normal) KRAS gene does not guarantee that these ...
