These lipids may be arranged in bilayers in the membranes with integral proteins between the layers and peripheral proteins attached to the outside. Membrane lipids are required for active transport, several enzymatic activities and membrane formation.Membranes: Thin layers of tissue which cover parts of the body, separate adjacent cavities, or connect adjacent structures.Intracellular Membranes: Thin structures that encapsulate subcellular structures or ORGANELLES in EUKARYOTIC CELLS. They include a variety of membranes associated with the CELL NUCLEUS; the MITOCHONDRIA; the GOLGI APPARATUS; the ENDOPLASMIC RETICULUM; LYSOSOMES; PLASTIDS; and VACUOLES.Membranes, Artificial: Artificially produced membranes, such as semipermeable membranes used in artificial kidney dialysis (RENAL DIALYSIS), monomolecular and bimolecular membranes used as models to simulate biological CELL MEMBRANES. These membranes are also used in the process of GUIDED TISSUE REGENERATION.Membrane Fluidity: The motion of phospholipid molecules within the lipid bilayer, dependent on the classes of phospholipids present, their fatty acid composition and degree of unsaturation of the acyl chains, the cholesterol concentration, and temperature.Cell Membrane Permeability: A quality of cell membranes which permits the passage of solvents and solutes into and out of cells.Erythrocyte Membrane: The semi-permeable outer structure of a red blood cell. It is known as a red cell 'ghost' after HEMOLYSIS.Membrane Potentials: The voltage differences across a membrane. For cellular membranes they are computed by subtracting the voltage measured outside the membrane from the voltage measured inside the membrane. They result from differences of inside versus outside concentration of potassium, sodium, chloride, and other ions across cells' or ORGANELLES membranes. For excitable cells, the resting membrane potentials range between -30 and -100 millivolts. Physical, chemical, or electrical stimuli can make a membrane potential more negative (hyperpolarization), or less negative (depolarization).Lipid Bilayers: Layers of lipid molecules which are two molecules thick. Bilayer systems are frequently studied as models of biological membranes.Microscopy, Electron: Microscopy using an electron beam, instead of light, to visualize the sample, thereby allowing much greater magnification. The interactions of ELECTRONS with specimens are used to provide information about the fine structure of that specimen. In TRANSMISSION ELECTRON MICROSCOPY the reactions of the electrons that are transmitted through the specimen are imaged. In SCANNING ELECTRON MICROSCOPY an electron beam falls at a non-normal angle on the specimen and the image is derived from the reactions occurring above the plane of the specimen.Freeze Fracturing: Preparation for electron microscopy of minute replicas of exposed surfaces of the cell which have been ruptured in the frozen state. The specimen is frozen, then cleaved under high vacuum at the same temperature. The exposed surface is shadowed with carbon and platinum and coated with carbon to obtain a carbon replica.Basement Membrane: A darkly stained mat-like EXTRACELLULAR MATRIX (ECM) that separates cell layers, such as EPITHELIUM from ENDOTHELIUM or a layer of CONNECTIVE TISSUE. The ECM layer that supports an overlying EPITHELIUM or ENDOTHELIUM is called basal lamina. Basement membrane (BM) can be formed by the fusion of either two adjacent basal laminae or a basal lamina with an adjacent reticular lamina of connective tissue. BM, composed mainly of TYPE IV COLLAGEN; glycoprotein LAMININ; and PROTEOGLYCAN, provides barriers as well as channels between interacting cell layers.Liposomes: Artificial, single or multilaminar vesicles (made from lecithins or other lipids) that are used for the delivery of a variety of biological molecules or molecular complexes to cells, for example, drug delivery and gene transfer. They are also used to study membranes and membrane proteins.Protein Transport: The process of moving proteins from one cellular compartment (including extracellular) to another by various sorting and transport mechanisms such as gated transport, protein translocation, and vesicular transport.Phosphatidylcholines: Derivatives of phosphatidic acids in which the phosphoric acid is bound in ester linkage to a choline moiety. Complete hydrolysis yields 1 mole of glycerol, phosphoric acid and choline and 2 moles of fatty acids.Models, Biological: Theoretical representations that simulate the behavior or activity of biological processes or diseases. For disease models in living animals, DISEASE MODELS, ANIMAL is available. Biological models include the use of mathematical equations, computers, and other electronic equipment.Cell Line: Established cell cultures that have the potential to propagate indefinitely.Diphenylhexatriene: A fluorescent compound that emits light only in specific configurations in certain lipid media. It is used as a tool in the study of membrane lipids.Membrane Proteins: Proteins which are found in membranes including cellular and intracellular membranes. They consist of two types, peripheral and integral proteins. They include most membrane-associated enzymes, antigenic proteins, transport proteins, and drug, hormone, and lectin receptors.Phospholipids: Lipids containing one or more phosphate groups, particularly those derived from either glycerol (phosphoglycerides see GLYCEROPHOSPHOLIPIDS) or sphingosine (SPHINGOLIPIDS). They are polar lipids that are of great importance for the structure and function of cell membranes and are the most abundant of membrane lipids, although not stored in large amounts in the system.Freeze Etching: A replica technique in which cells are frozen to a very low temperature and cracked with a knife blade to expose the interior surfaces of the cells or cell membranes. The cracked cell surfaces are then freeze-dried to expose their constituents. The surfaces are now ready for shadowing to be viewed using an electron microscope. This method differs from freeze-fracturing in that no cryoprotectant is used and, thus, allows for the sublimation of water during the freeze-drying process to etch the surfaces.Erythrocytes: Red blood cells. Mature erythrocytes are non-nucleated, biconcave disks containing HEMOGLOBIN whose function is to transport OXYGEN.Microscopy, Fluorescence: Microscopy of specimens stained with fluorescent dye (usually fluorescein isothiocyanate) or of naturally fluorescent materials, which emit light when exposed to ultraviolet or blue light. Immunofluorescence microscopy utilizes antibodies that are labeled with fluorescent dye.Protein Binding: The process in which substances, either endogenous or exogenous, bind to proteins, peptides, enzymes, protein precursors, or allied compounds. Specific protein-binding measures are often used as assays in diagnostic assessments.Membrane Transport Proteins: Membrane proteins whose primary function is to facilitate the transport of molecules across a biological membrane. Included in this broad category are proteins involved in active transport (BIOLOGICAL TRANSPORT, ACTIVE), facilitated transport and ION CHANNELS.Membrane Glycoproteins: Glycoproteins found on the membrane or surface of cells.Molecular Sequence Data: Descriptions of specific amino acid, carbohydrate, or nucleotide sequences which have appeared in the published literature and/or are deposited in and maintained by databanks such as GENBANK, European Molecular Biology Laboratory (EMBL), National Biomedical Research Foundation (NBRF), or other sequence repositories.Detergents: Purifying or cleansing agents, usually salts of long-chain aliphatic bases or acids, that exert cleansing (oil-dissolving) and antimicrobial effects through a surface action that depends on possessing both hydrophilic and hydrophobic properties.Temperature: The property of objects that determines the direction of heat flow when they are placed in direct thermal contact. The temperature is the energy of microscopic motions (vibrational and translational) of the particles of atoms.Cell Fractionation: Techniques to partition various components of the cell into SUBCELLULAR FRACTIONS.Calcium: A basic element found in nearly all organized tissues. It is a member of the alkaline earth family of metals with the atomic symbol Ca, atomic number 20, and atomic weight 40. Calcium is the most abundant mineral in the body and combines with phosphorus to form calcium phosphate in the bones and teeth. It is essential for the normal functioning of nerves and muscles and plays a role in blood coagulation (as factor IV) and in many enzymatic processes.Amino Acid Sequence: The order of amino acids as they occur in a polypeptide chain. This is referred to as the primary structure of proteins. It is of fundamental importance in determining PROTEIN CONFORMATION.Endoplasmic Reticulum: A system of cisternae in the CYTOPLASM of many cells. In places the endoplasmic reticulum is continuous with the plasma membrane (CELL MEMBRANE) or outer membrane of the nuclear envelope. If the outer surfaces of the endoplasmic reticulum membranes are coated with ribosomes, the endoplasmic reticulum is said to be rough-surfaced (ENDOPLASMIC RETICULUM, ROUGH); otherwise it is said to be smooth-surfaced (ENDOPLASMIC RETICULUM, SMOOTH). (King & Stansfield, A Dictionary of Genetics, 4th ed)Cells, Cultured: Cells propagated in vitro in special media conducive to their growth. Cultured cells are used to study developmental, morphologic, metabolic, physiologic, and genetic processes, among others.Carrier Proteins: Transport proteins that carry specific substances in the blood or across cell membranes.Protein Structure, Tertiary: The level of protein structure in which combinations of secondary protein structures (alpha helices, beta sheets, loop regions, and motifs) pack together to form folded shapes called domains. Disulfide bridges between cysteines in two different parts of the polypeptide chain along with other interactions between the chains play a role in the formation and stabilization of tertiary structure. Small proteins usually consist of only one domain but larger proteins may contain a number of domains connected by segments of polypeptide chain which lack regular secondary structure.Microscopy, Electron, Scanning: Microscopy in which the object is examined directly by an electron beam scanning the specimen point-by-point. The image is constructed by detecting the products of specimen interactions that are projected above the plane of the sample, such as backscattered electrons. Although SCANNING TRANSMISSION ELECTRON MICROSCOPY also scans the specimen point by point with the electron beam, the image is constructed by detecting the electrons, or their interaction products that are transmitted through the sample plane, so that is a form of TRANSMISSION ELECTRON MICROSCOPY.Golgi Apparatus: A stack of flattened vesicles that functions in posttranslational processing and sorting of proteins, receiving them from the rough ENDOPLASMIC RETICULUM and directing them to secretory vesicles, LYSOSOMES, or the CELL MEMBRANE. The movement of proteins takes place by transfer vesicles that bud off from the rough endoplasmic reticulum or Golgi apparatus and fuse with the Golgi, lysosomes or cell membrane. (From Glick, Glossary of Biochemistry and Molecular Biology, 1990)Cholesterol: The principal sterol of all higher animals, distributed in body tissues, especially the brain and spinal cord, and in animal fats and oils.Unilamellar Liposomes: Single membrane vesicles, generally made of PHOSPHOLIPIDS.Fluorescence Polarization: Measurement of the polarization of fluorescent light from solutions or microscopic specimens. It is used to provide information concerning molecular size, shape, and conformation, molecular anisotropy, electronic energy transfer, molecular interaction, including dye and coenzyme binding, and the antigen-antibody reaction.Mutation: Any detectable and heritable change in the genetic material that causes a change in the GENOTYPE and which is transmitted to daughter cells and to succeeding generations.Cellular Structures: Components of a cell.Fluorescent Dyes: Agents that emit light after excitation by light. The wave length of the emitted light is usually longer than that of the incident light. Fluorochromes are substances that cause fluorescence in other substances, i.e., dyes used to mark or label other compounds with fluorescent tags.Microscopy, Confocal: A light microscopic technique in which only a small spot is illuminated and observed at a time. An image is constructed through point-by-point scanning of the field in this manner. Light sources may be conventional or laser, and fluorescence or transmitted observations are possible.Aleurites: A plant genus of the family EUPHORBIACEAE that is the source of tung oil and a phorbol diester (PHORBOL ESTERS).Accidents, Occupational: Unforeseen occurrences, especially injuries in the course of work-related activities.Models, Molecular: Models used experimentally or theoretically to study molecular shape, electronic properties, or interactions; includes analogous molecules, computer-generated graphics, and mechanical structures.Lactalbumin: A major protein fraction of milk obtained from the WHEY.Extracellular Matrix: A meshwork-like substance found within the extracellular space and in association with the basement membrane of the cell surface. It promotes cellular proliferation and provides a supporting structure to which cells or cell lysates in culture dishes adhere.Collagen: A polypeptide substance comprising about one third of the total protein in mammalian organisms. It is the main constituent of SKIN; CONNECTIVE TISSUE; and the organic substance of bones (BONE AND BONES) and teeth (TOOTH).
Scavenger receptor BI transfers major lipoprotein-associated phospholipids into the cells. (1/160)The phospholipids of lipoproteins can be transferred to cells by an endocytosis-independent uptake pathway. We analyzed the role of scavenger receptor BI (SR-BI) for the selective cellular phospholipid import. Human monocytes rapidly acquired the pyrene (py)-labeled phospholipids sphingomyelin (SM), phosphatidylcholine, and phosphatidylethanolamine from different donors (low and high density lipoproteins (LDL, HDL), lipid vesicles). The anti-SR-BI antibody directed against the extracellular loop of the membrane protein lowered the cellular import of the phospholipids by 40-80%. The phospholipid transfer from the lipid vesicles into the monocytes was suppressed by LDL, HDL, and apoprotein AI. Transfection of BHK cells with the cDNA for human SR-BI enhanced the cellular import of the vesicle-derived py-phospholipids by 5-6-fold. In the case of the LDL donors, transfer of py-SM to the transfected cells was stimulated to a greater extent than the uptake of the other py-phospholipids. Similar differences were not observed when the vesicles and HDL were used as phospholipid donors. The concentration of LDL required for the half-maximal phospholipid import was close to the previously reported apparent dissociation constant for LDL binding to SR-BI. The low activation energy of the SR-BI-mediated py-phospholipid import indicated that the transfer occurs entirely in a hydrophobic environment. Disruption of cell membrane caveolae by cyclodextrin treatment reduced the SR-BI-catalyzed incorporation of py-SM, suggesting that intact caveolae are necessary for the phospholipid uptake. In conclusion, SR-BI mediates the selective import of the major lipoprotein-associated phospholipids into the cells, the transfer efficiency being dependent on the structure of the donor lipoprotein.

Myosin-X, a novel myosin with pleckstrin homology domains, associates with regions of dynamic actin. (2/160)Myosin-X is the founding member of a novel class of unconventional myosins characterized by a tail domain containing multiple pleckstrin homology domains. We report here the full-length cDNA sequences of human and bovine myosin-X as well as the first characterization of this protein's distribution and biochemical properties. The 235 kDa myosin-X contains a head domain with <45% protein sequence identity to other myosins, three IQ motifs, and a predicted stalk of coiled coil. Like several other unconventional myosins and a plant kinesin, myosin-X contains both a myosin tail homology 4 (MyTH4) domain and a FERM (band 4.1/ezrin/radixin/moesin) domain. The unique tail domain also includes three pleckstrin homology domains, which have been implicated in phosphatidylinositol phospholipid signaling, and three PEST sites, which may allow cleavage of the myosin tail. Most intriguingly, myosin-X in cultured cells is present at the edges of lamellipodia, membrane ruffles, and the tips of filopodial actin bundles. The tail domain structure, biochemical features, and localization of myosin-X suggest that this novel unconventional myosin plays a role in regions of dynamic actin. (+info)
Coordinated gating of TRP-dependent channels in rhabdomeral membranes from Drosophila retinas. (3/160)Using a newly developed dissociation procedure, we isolated the specialized rhabdomeral membranes from Drosophila retinal photoreceptors. From these membranes, we have recorded spontaneous active currents in excised patch, voltage-clamp recordings. We observed rapid opening events that closely resembled those ascribed to one class of light-activated channels, TRP. All activity exhibited Ba(2+) permeability, little voltage dependence, and sensitivity to La(3+) block. Mutational analysis indicated that the spontaneous activity present in these membranes was TRP-dependent. Excised patches from wild-type rhabdomeral membranes exhibited a wide range of conductance amplitudes. In addition, large conductance events exhibited many conductance levels in the open state. Block of activity by La(3+) both developed and recovered in a stepwise manner. Our results indicate that TRP-dependent channels have a small unitary conductance and that many channels can be gated coordinately. (+info)
p(1),p(4)-diadenosine 5'-tetraphosphate induces the uptake of arginine and citrulline by a pore on the plasma membrane of bovine aortic endothelial cells. (4/160)We have previously demonstrated that p(1),p(4)-diadenosine 5'-tetraphosphate (Ap(4)A) induces the release of nitric oxide (NO) and modulates the uptake of extracellular L-arginine (L-Arg) and L-citrulline (L-Cit) by bovine aortic endothelial cells (BAEC) [Hilderman, R.H. and Christensen, E.F. (1998) FEBS Lett. 427, 320-324 and Hilderman, R.H., Casey, T.E. and Pojoga, L.H. (2000) Arch. Biochem. Biophys. 375, 124-130]. In this communication we report that extracellular Ap(4)A enhances the uptake of L-Arg and L-Cit through a pore on the plasma membrane of BAEC that is selective for these two amino acids. We also demonstrate that Ap(2)A, which induces NO release, enhances L-Arg uptake while Ap(5)A, a vasoconstrictor, does not enhance the uptake of L-Arg. The potential physiological significance of the uptake of these two amino acids in relation to NO synthesis is discussed. (+info)
The yeast inositol polyphosphate 5-phosphatases inp52p and inp53p translocate to actin patches following hyperosmotic stress: mechanism for regulating phosphatidylinositol 4,5-bisphosphate at plasma membrane invaginations. (5/160)The Saccharomyces cerevisiae inositol polyphosphate 5-phosphatases (Inp51p, Inp52p, and Inp53p) each contain an N-terminal Sac1 domain, followed by a 5-phosphatase domain and a C-terminal proline-rich domain. Disruption of any two of these 5-phosphatases results in abnormal vacuolar and plasma membrane morphology. We have cloned and characterized the Sac1-containing 5-phosphatases Inp52p and Inp53p. Purified recombinant Inp52p lacking the Sac1 domain hydrolyzed phosphatidylinositol 4,5-bisphosphate [PtdIns(4,5)P(2)] and PtdIns(3, 5)P(2). Inp52p and Inp53p were expressed in yeast as N-terminal fusion proteins with green fluorescent protein (GFP). In resting cells recombinant GFP-tagged 5-phosphatases were expressed diffusely throughout the cell but were excluded from the nucleus. Following hyperosmotic stress the GFP-tagged 5-phosphatases rapidly and transiently associated with actin patches, independent of actin, in both the mother and daughter cells of budding yeast as demonstrated by colocalization with rhodamine phalloidin. Both the Sac1 domain and proline-rich domains were able to independently mediate translocation of Inp52p to actin patches, following hyperosmotic stress, while the Inp53p proline-rich domain alone was sufficient for stress-mediated localization. Overexpression of Inp52p or Inp53p, but not catalytically inactive Inp52p, which lacked PtdIns(4,5)P(2) 5-phosphatase activity, resulted in a dramatic reduction in the repolarization time of actin patches following hyperosmotic stress. We propose that the osmotic-stress-induced translocation of Inp52p and Inp53p results in the localized regulation of PtdIns(3,5)P(2) and PtdIns(4,5)P(2) at actin patches and associated plasma membrane invaginations. This may provide a mechanism for regulating actin polymerization and cell growth as an acute adaptive response to hyperosmotic stress. (+info)
Restricted accumulation of phosphatidylinositol 3-kinase products in a plasmalemmal subdomain during Fc gamma receptor-mediated phagocytosis. (6/160)Phagocytosis is a highly localized and rapid event, requiring the generation of spatially and temporally restricted signals. Because phosphatidylinositol 3-kinase (PI3K) plays an important role in the innate immune response, we studied the generation and distribution of 3' phosphoinositides (3'PIs) in macrophages during the course of phagocytosis. The presence of 3'PI was monitored noninvasively in cells transfected with chimeras of green fluorescent protein and the pleckstrin homology domain of either Akt, Btk, or Gab1. Although virtually undetectable in unstimulated cells, 3'PI rapidly accumulated at sites of phagocytosis. This accumulation was sharply restricted to the phagosomal cup, with little 3'PI detectable in the immediately adjacent areas of the plasmalemma. Measurements of fluorescence recovery after photobleaching were made to estimate the mobility of lipids in the cytosolic monolayer of the phagosomal membrane. Stimulation of phagocytic receptors induced a marked reduction of lipid mobility that likely contributes to the restricted distribution of 3'PI at the cup. 3'PI accumulation during phagocytosis was transient, terminating shortly after sealing of the phagosomal vacuole. Two factors contribute to the rapid disappearance of 3'PI: the dissociation of the type I PI3K from the phagosomal membrane and the persistent accumulation of phosphoinositide phosphatases. (+info)
Differential dynamics of alpha 5 integrin, paxillin, and alpha-actinin during formation and disassembly of adhesions in migrating cells. (7/160)To investigate the mechanisms by which adhesions form and disperse in migrating cells, we expressed alpha 5 integrin, alpha-actinin, and paxillin as green fluorescent protein (GFP) fusions. All localized with their endogenous counterparts and did not perturb migration when expressed at moderate levels. alpha 5-GFP also rescued the adhesive defects in CHO B2 cells, which are alpha 5 integrin deficient. In ruffling cells, alpha 5-GFP and alpha-actinin--GFP localized prominently at the leading edge in membrane protrusions. Of the three GFP fusion proteins that we examined, paxillin was the first component to appear visibly organized in protrusive regions of the cell. When a new protrusion formed, the paxillin appeared to remodel from older to newer adhesions at the leading edge. alpha-Actinin subsequently entered adhesions, which translocated toward the cell center, and inhibited paxillin turnover. The new adhesions formed from small foci of alpha-actinin--GFP and paxillin-GFP, which grew in size. Subsequently, alpha 5 integrin entered the adhesions to form visible complexes, which served to stabilize the adhesions. alpha 5-GFP also resided in endocytic vesicles that emanated from the leading edge of protrusions. Integrin vesicles at the cell rear moved toward the cell body. As cells migrated, alpha 5 vesicles also moved from a perinuclear region to the base of the lamellipodium. The alpha 5 vesicles colocalized with transferrin receptor and FM 4-64 dye. After adhesions broke down in the rear, alpha 5-GFP was found in fibrous structures behind the cell, whereas alpha-actinin--GFP and paxillin-GFP moved up the lateral edge of retracting cells as organized structures and then dissipated.

The Dictyostelium CARMIL protein links capping protein and the Arp2/3 complex to type I myosins through their SH3 domains. (8/160)Fusion proteins containing the Src homology (SH)3 domains of Dictyostelium myosin IB (myoB) and IC (myoC) bind a 116-kD protein (p116), plus nine other proteins identified as the seven member Arp2/3 complex, and the alpha and beta subunits of capping protein. Immunoprecipitation reactions indicate that myoB and myoC form a complex with p116, Arp2/3, and capping protein in vivo, that the myosins bind to p116 through their SH3 domains, and that capping protein and the Arp2/3 complex in turn bind to p116. Cloning of p116 reveals a protein dominated by leucine-rich repeats and proline-rich sequences, and indicates that it is a homologue of Acan 125. Studies using p116 fusion proteins confirm the location of the myosin I SH3 domain binding site, implicate NH(2)-terminal sequences in binding capping protein, and show that a region containing a short sequence found in several G-actin binding proteins, as well as an acidic stretch, can activate Arp2/3-dependent actin nucleation. p116 localizes along with the Arp2/3 complex, myoB, and myoC in dynamic actin-rich cellular extensions, including the leading edge of cells undergoing chemotactic migration, and dorsal, cup-like, macropinocytic extensions. Cells lacking p116 exhibit a striking defect in the formation of these macropinocytic structures, a concomitant reduction in the rate of fluid phase pinocytosis, a significant decrease in the efficiency of chemotactic aggregation, and a decrease in cellular F-actin content. These results identify a complex that links key players in the nucleation and termination of actin filament assembly with a ubiquitous barbed end-directed motor, indicate that the protein responsible for the formation of this complex is physiologically important, and suggest that previously reported myosin I mutant phenotypes in Dictyostelium may be due, at least in part, to defects in the assembly state of actin. We propose that p116 and Acan 125, along with homologues identified in Caenorhabditis elegans, Drosophila, mouse, and man, be named CARMIL proteins, for capping protein, Arp2/3, and myosin I linker.

Abstract: During macropinocytosis, cells remodel their morphologies for the uptake of extracellular matter. This endocytotic mechanism relies on the collapse and closure of precursory structures, which are propagating actin-based, ring-shaped vertical undulations at the dorsal (top) cell membrane, a.k.a. circular dorsal ruffles (CDRs). As such, CDRs are essential to a range of vital and pathogenic processes alike. Here we show, based on both experimental data and theoretical analysis, that CDRs are propagating fronts of actin polymerization in a bistable system. The theory relies on a novel mass-conserving reaction-diffusion model, which associates the expansion and contraction of waves to distinct counter-propagating front solutions. Moreover, the model predicts that under a change in parameters (for example, biochemical conditions) CDRs may be pinned and fluctuate near the cell boundary or exhibit complex spiral wave dynamics due to a wave instability. We observe both phenomena also in our ...

The purposes of this study were to investigate the systemic and characteristic metabolites in the serum of dairy goats induced by aflatoxin B1 (AFB1) exposure and to further understand the endogenous metabolic alterations induced by it. A nuclear magnetic resonance (NMR)-based metabonomic approach was used to analyse the metabolic alterations in dairy goats that were induced by low doses of AFB1 (50 µg/kg DM). We found that AFB1 exposure caused significant elevations of glucose, citrate, acetate, acetoacetate, betaine, and glycine yet caused reductions of lactate, ketone bodies (acetate, β-hydroxybutyrate), amino acids (citrulline, leucine/isoleucine, valine, creatine) and cell membrane structures (choline, lipoprotein, N-acetyl glycoproteins) in the serum ...

We investigate biochemical mechanisms by which omega-3 fatty acids and ethanol modify neuronal cell membrane structure, and characterize consequential molecular and cellular signaling involved in neuronal survival and differentiation. We also investigate the metabolism of polyunsaturated lipids to bioactive mediators and their in vivo implication in neurodevelopment and neuroprotection. To this end, we devise multidisciplinary approaches using molecular, cellular and modern instrumental techniques as well as animal models. The current research topics include 1) neurogenesis, neuritogenesis, synaptogenesis and neuroinflammation affected by DHA and DHA metabolites; 2) identification of target receptors of active DHA-metabolites; 3) molecular ...

In their key experiment, Dr Wang used fluorescent dye that changes in intensity as the electric potential of the cell membrane changes. When two cells connected by forming a nanotube, he poked into one of them with a microinjection needle to depolarise that cells membrane potential. This caused the fluorescent indicator on the cell membrane to light up like a firework, and it was soon followed by a similar light display in the cell on the other end of the nanotube ...

Nature Methods. 2012, volume 9: 195-200. doi: 10.1038/nmeth.1812. http://f1000.com/13978956 An analytical approach based on the concept of fluorophore localisation provides dynamic super-resolution data of xFP- labelled live cells using a common arc lamp based wide-field fluorescence microscope. One method of achieving fluorescence super-resolution is based around finding the positions of fluorescent molecules that label the cellular structure of interest. In this approach, positions can be determined precisely and accurately using fluorescent probes that can be photoactivated, photoconverted or photoswitched to generate single images with emitter densities of only about one active fluorophore per diffraction-limited area. Many images each containing subsets of active ...

When handling parts smaller than an 1/8-in. (3mm) a small-part tip is recommended. The business end of the small-part tip typically has conical point ending in a flat area with a hole drilled down the center. The holes vary in size from 0.060 to 0.003-in. (1.5 to 0.076mm). The tip with the smallest hole size easily handles 100µm size parts. This style of tip is used with any of the abovementioned systems that provide a constant vacuum source such as the bench top tools that plug into an electrical outlet. In this case the vacuum pen has an air hose connected to the back of the tool and the pick-up tip is on the front of the tool. To handle parts with this system, simply touch the tip to the part and it is gripped for pick and place. To release the part, just tap the control button on the side of the pen. Applications for this style of tip include handling items such as SMD components, small ball lenses, miniature springs, small optical fibers, and other equally tiny and fragile parts ...

Osteoclasts are large, multinucleated cells whose primary function is bone resorption. This process is regulated at multiple levels, including the proliferation and homing of osteoclast progenitors and their fusion into multinucleated cells (reviewed by Teitelbaum, 2000). Upon identification of appropriate resorption sites, osteoclasts reorganize their small matrix adhesions - podosomes - into a circular adhesion structure at the cell periphery known as the `sealing zone, and secrete protons and lysosomal enzymes into the space between the cell and the bone surface (Nesbitt and Horton, 1997; Salo et al., 1997). These structures form readily on bone surfaces; similar organization of podosome super-structures was observed in cells grown on standard tissue culture surfaces (Calle et al., 2004; Lakkakorpi et al., 1993; Zambonin-Zallone et al., 1988).. Podosomes are small (∼1 μm in diameter) dot-like adhesion structures found in osteoclasts, macrophages, dendritic cells and several types of ...
In this study single-cylinder engine experiments and computational fluid dynamics (CFD) modeling were used to evaluate the classic two-step Hiroyasu soot model. A broad range of direct injected (DI) combustion systems were investigated to assess the predictive accuracy of the soot model as a design tool for modern DI diesel engines. Experiments were conducted on a 2.5 liter single-cylinder engine. Combustion system combinations included 3 unique piston bowl shapes and 7 variants of a common rail fuel injector. The pistons were a Tier 4 final production piston, a re-entrant piston, and a Volvo WAVE-like piston. The injectors featured 6 or 7 holes and systematically varied included spray angle from 120 to 150 degrees and hole size from 170 to 273 microns. Two nominal operating conditions were studied: 25% and 100% load at 1800 rpm. Start of injection timing sweeps at varied injection pressures were run at two exhaust gas recirculation (EGR) levels at each load condition ...

Rafiq et al. demonstrate that the small G protein ARF1 and its activator, cytohesin 2 (ARNO), are required for podosome formation in macrophage-like cells and fibroblasts. Inhibition of ARNO-ARF1 signaling results in increased RhoA activity and disassembly of podosomes in a myosin-IIA-dependent fashion. In fibroblasts that normally do not form podosomes, constitutively active ARF1 induces actin-rich puncta associated with sites of matrix degradation, putative precursors of podosomes. ...

We have rationally designed two-dimensional Au and Ag hole arrays for high performing surface plasmon resonance (SPR) sensing. The figure-of-merit (FOM), which is defined as sensitivity/linewidth, is found to be highly geometry-dependent. For sensitivity, we find it is equal to the period of array when exciting low order surface plasmon modes at low incident angle. Therefore, increasing period improves sensitivity. On the other hand, narrow linewidth can be obtained from small hole size so that the radiative decay loss is minimized. By using a pair of orthogonally oriented polarizer and analyzer, the signal-to-noise ratio (SNR) can be greatly enhanced due to the elimination of the nonresonant reflection background. As a proof of our strategy, we have obtained FOM larger than 100/RIU and SNR higher than 110 from Au arrays. Our results show the importance of understanding the basic properties of surface plasmon polaritons in order to systematically optimize the performance of the plasmonic system ...

The Institute of Pharmacology and Structural Biology (www.ipbs.fr) has an open postdoctoral position to work on podosomes, cell structures involved in adhesion, matrix proteolysis, mechanosensing and cell migration in 3D environments (1-9). Macrophage tissue infiltration plays beneficial roles in protective immunity and detrimental roles in several diseases. Tissue infiltrated macrophages favor the progression of e.g. most cancers and chronic inflammations. Therefore, it is a challenging issue to control macrophage migration as a new therapeutic strategy.. Our team has reported that podosomes are instrumental in the protease-dependent 3D migration of macrophages. To progress in the knowledge of this cell structure, we developed a method called Protrusion Force Microscopy (3,10,11) and we used STORM-SAF microscopy (12) that allowed drawing a preliminary picture of the podosome architecture which explains the generation of protrusive force (13). Now, we plan to further characterize the ...

0040] In digital microfluidic chips, through-holes (or via holes) are drilled through the center of the drive electrodes on one side of a multi-layer board to make electrical connections on the opposite side of the board. The foot print of a droplet is defined by the area of a drive electrode. In order to obtain small droplet volumes, the area of the drive electrodes need to be minimized. Since via holes are drilled through the drive electrodes, it is important to minimize the diameter of the via holes including the pad/land diameter. Therefore, via holes play an important role in defining the minimum volumes of droplets obtainable in a PCB process. The PCB industry is driving down the via hole sizes for a different reason which is to avoid blocking the wire routing channels and to maximize the PCB surface area available for traces. Many built-up processes use small vias which are formed by punching through using an excimer laser. There are a number of variations of the built-up processes used ...
The domain structure of Tuba suggests its potential to act as a scaffold for the recruitment, coordination and regulation of signaling molecules and molecular machinery involved in membrane-proximal cellular events. Overexpression of mTuba, an isoform of Tuba lacking the dynamin-binding SH3 domains, induced uncoordinated dorsal ruffling, distinct from conventional circular dorsal waves, in the low metastatic B16-F1 cell line. The ability of mTuba to stimulate ruffling suggests that dynamin is not required for this process. However, as Tuba 1 was observed to co-localize with mTuba at puncta when co-expressed (Table 1), we cannot rule out the possibility that dynamin function is integrated through the dimerization of different Tuba isoforms.. Interaction with actin-regulatory proteins was shown to be a key determinant for mTuba-stimulated membrane ruffling as deletion of the C-terminal SH3 domain prevented puncta and ruffle formation. Moreover, specific inhibition of N-WASP using a small molecule ...

This report is the first demonstration that podosome assembly is critically gelsolin-dependent. The role of gelsolin in actin filament assembly and stimulus-response coupling associated with cell motility is well known (Stossel et al. 1985; Janmey and Stossel 1987; Janmey et al. 1987; Stossel 1989; Yin 1989; Weeds and Maciver 1993). However, most cells function well without gelsolin, indicating that gelsolins functions are effectively substituted for in most cells by other actin severing or capping proteins. In these cells, attachment to matrix utilizes focal adhesions, and motility is often accomplished by lamellipodia. On the other hand, we demonstrate here that cells such as the osteoclast, which rely on podosomes for attachment and motility, are rendered hypomotile by the absence of gelsolin, and furthermore, the actin ring structures of the osteoclast that derive from podosome fusion are not formed. As a result, gelsolin deficiency is associated with abnormal actin cytoskeletal ...

- Of particular interest were membranes based on proton-conducting micro and nano particles dispersed in a curable or solvent-based matrix. (uconn.edu)
- The morphology of the membrane was modified by aligning the SXLPS particles in the matrix using electric field. (uconn.edu)
- Membranes were fabricated by aligning the acidic SXLPS particles with an external magnetic field of 0.1 Tesla, which is easily achievable in an industrial scale. (uconn.edu)
- Magnetofection is a simple and highly efficient transfection method that uses magnetic fields to concentrate particles containing nucleic acid into the target cells. (wikipedia.org)
- The magnetic particles are then concentrated on the target cells by the influence of an external magnetic field generated by magnets. (wikipedia.org)
- Cubosomes are liquid crystalline nano-structures formed from the cubic phase of lipids, such as monooleate, or any other amphiphilic macromolecules with the unique property to be dispersed into particles. (wikipedia.org)
- The difference between the concentrations of these charged particles causes a difference in electric potential between the inside and outside of cells, known as the membrane potential. (wikipedia.org)
