Human lipodystrophies linked to mutations in A-type lamins and to HIV protease inhibitor therapy are both associated with prelamin A accumulation, oxidative stress and premature cellular senescence. (1/80)

Lipodystrophic syndromes associated with mutations in LMNA, encoding A-type lamins, and with HIV antiretroviral treatments share several clinical characteristics. Nuclear alterations and prelamin A accumulation have been reported in fibroblasts from patients with LMNA mutations and adipocytes exposed to protease inhibitors (PI). As genetically altered lamin A maturation also results in premature ageing syndromes with lipodystrophy, we studied prelamin A expression and senescence markers in cultured human fibroblasts bearing six different LMNA mutations or treated with PIs. As compared to control cells, fibroblasts with LMNA mutations or treated with PIs had nuclear shape abnormalities and reduced proliferative activity that worsened with increasing cellular passages. They exhibited prelamin A accumulation, increased oxidative stress, decreased expression of mitochondrial respiratory chain proteins and premature cellular senescence. Inhibition of prelamin A farnesylation prevented cellular senescence and oxidative stress. Adipose tissue samples from patients with LMNA mutations or treated with PIs also showed retention of prelamin A, overexpression of the cell cycle checkpoint inhibitor p16 and altered mitochondrial markers. Thus, both LMNA mutations and PI treatment result in accumulation of farnesylated prelamin A and oxidative stress that trigger premature cellular senescence. These alterations could participate in the pathophysiology of lipodystrophic syndromes and lead to premature ageing complications.  (+info)

CD200 and its receptor, CD200R, modulate bone mass via the differentiation of osteoclasts. (2/80)

Fusion of macrophages is an essential step in the differentiation of osteoclasts, which play a central role in the development and remodeling of bone. Osteoclasts are important mediators of bone loss, which leads, for example, to osteoporosis. Macrophage fusion receptor/signal regulatory protein alpha (MFR/SIRPalpha) and its ligand CD47, which are members of the Ig superfamily (IgSF), have been implicated in the fusion of macrophages. We show that CD200, which is not expressed in cells that belong to the myeloid lineage, is strongly expressed in macrophages at the onset of fusion. By contrast, the CD200 receptor (CD200R), which, like CD200, belongs to the IgSF, is expressed only in cells that belong to the myeloid lineage, including osteoclasts, and in CD4+ T cells. Osteoclasts from CD200-/- mice differentiated at a reduced rate. Activation of the NF-kappaB and MAP kinase signaling pathways downstream of RANK, a receptor that plays a central role in the differentiation of osteoclasts, was depressed in these cells. A soluble recombinant protein that included the extracellular domain of CD200 rescued the fusion of CD200-/- macrophages and their activation downstream of RANK. Conversely, addition of a soluble recombinant protein that included the extracellular domain of CD200R or short-hairpin RNA-mediated silencing of the expression of CD200R prevented fusion. Thus CD200 engagement of the CD200R at the initiation of macrophage fusion regulated further differentiation to osteoclasts. Consistent with in vitro observations, CD200-/- mice contained fewer osteoclasts and accumulated more bone than CD200+/+ mice. The CD200-CD200R axis is therefore a putative regulator of bone mass, via the formation of osteoclasts.  (+info)

Ductal carcinoma in situ of the breast (DCIS) with heterogeneity of nuclear grade: prognostic effects of quantitative nuclear assessment. (3/80)

BACKGROUND: Previously, 50% of patients with breast ductal carcinoma in situ (DCIS) had more than one nuclear grade, and neither worst nor predominant nuclear grade was significantly associated with development of invasive carcinoma. Here, we used image analysis in addition to histologic evaluation to determine if quantification of nuclear features could provide additional prognostic information and hence impact prognostic assessments. METHODS: Nuclear image features were extracted from about 200 nuclei of each of 80 patients with DCIS who underwent lumpectomy alone, and received no adjuvant systemic therapy. Nuclear images were obtained from 20 representative nuclei per duct, from each of a group of 5 ducts, in two separate fields, for 10 ducts. Reproducibility of image analysis features was determined, as was the ability of features to discriminate between nuclear grades. Patient information was available about clinical factors (age and method of DCIS detection), pathologic factors (DCIS size, nuclear grade, margin size, and amount of parenchymal involvement), and 39 image features (morphology, densitometry, and texture). The prognostic effects of these factors and features on the development of invasive breast cancer were examined with Cox step-wise multivariate regression. RESULTS: Duplicate measurements were similar for 89.7% to 97.4% of assessed image features. For the pooled assessment with approximately 200 nuclei per patient, a discriminant function with one densitometric and two texture features was significantly (p < 0.001) associated with nuclear grading, and provided 78.8% correct jackknifed classification of a patient's nuclear grade. In multivariate assessments, image analysis nuclear features had significant prognostic associations (p +info)

A novel function of plant histone H1: microtubule nucleation and continuous plus end association. (4/80)

In higher plant cells, various microtubular arrays can be seen despite of their lack of structurally defined microtubule-organizing centers (MTOCs) like centrosomes in animal cells. Little is known about the molecular properties of the microtubule-organizing centers in higher plant cells. The nuclear surface contains one of these microtubule-organizing centers and generates microtubules radially toward the cell periphery (radial microtubules). Previously, we reported that histone H1 possessed the microtubule-organizing activity, and it was suggested that histone H1 localized on the nuclear surfaces in Tobacco BY-2 cells (Nakayama, T., Ishii, T., Hotta, T., and Mizuno, K. J. Biol. Chem. (submitted)). Here we show that histone H1 forms ring-shaped complexes with tubulin, and these complexes nucleated and elongated the radial microtubules continuously (processively) associating with their proximal ends where the incorporation of tubulin occurred. Furthermore, the polarity of radial microtubules was determined to be proximal end plus. Immunofluorescence microscopy of the isolated nuclei revealed that histone H1 localized on the nuclear surfaces, distinct from that in the chromatin. These results indicate that radial microtubules are organized by a novel MTOC that is totally different from MTOCs previously found in either plant or animal cells.  (+info)

Automated learning of generative models for subcellular location: building blocks for systems biology. (5/80)

The goal of location proteomics is the systematic and comprehensive study of protein subcellular location. We have previously developed automated, quantitative methods to identify protein subcellular location families, but there have been no effective means of communicating their patterns to integrate them with other information for building cell models. We built generative models of subcellular location that are learned from a collection of images so that they not only represent the pattern, but also capture its variation from cell to cell. Our models contain three components: a nuclear model, a cell shape model and a protein-containing object model. We built models for six patterns that consist primarily of discrete structures. To validate the generated images, we showed that they are recognized with reasonable accuracy by a classifier trained on real images. We also showed that the model parameters themselves can be used as features to discriminate the classes. The models allow the synthesis of images with the expectation that they are drawn from the same underlying statistical distribution as the images used to train them. They can potentially be combined for many proteins to yield a high resolution location map in support of systems biology.  (+info)

Early-stage estrogen receptor-positive (ER+) breast cancer (BCa) is the most common type of BCa in the United States. One critical question with these tumors is identifying which patients will receive added benefit from adjuvant chemotherapy. Nuclear pleomorphism (variance in nuclear shape and morphology) is an important constituent of breast grading schemes, and in ER+ cases, the grade is highly correlated with disease outcome. This study aimed to investigate whether quantitative computer-extracted image features of nuclear shape and orientation on digitized images of hematoxylin-stained and eosin-stained tissue of lymph node-negative (LN-), ER+ BCa could help stratify patients into discrete (,10 years short-term vs. ,10 years long-term survival) outcome groups independent of standard clinical and pathological parameters. We considered a tissue microarray (TMA) cohort of 276 ER+, LN- patients comprising 150 patients with long-term and 126 patients with short-term overall survival, wherein 177 ...

Many phenomena that basic research tries to explain would simply be unknown had they not been uncovered by the study of diseases". This statement from Vogel and Motulsky is also valid with respect to protein modifications in both "normal" and premature ageing, such as Hutchinson-Gilford Progeria. Most progeria patients carry a specific lamin A/C mutation, which results in truncated protein (progerin), lacking the site essential for cleaving a farnesyl group. Incompletely modified lamins accumulate at the nuclear membrane. The same lamin modifications are also found in cells of normally aged humans. Further, lamins are non-enzymatically modified by MGO, a precursor in the formation of AGEs. These lamin modifications increase with age and might cause vascular dysfunction and atherosclerosis. Amongst others, lamins bind to the lamin B receptor (LBR). LBR has sterol reductase activity and modifies chromatin. We previously showed that LBR-deficiency results in hyposegmented neutrophil nuclei, altered ...

Description: Glyphosate based herbicides are among the most widely used herbicides in the world. The purpose of this study was to determine developmental toxicity of glyphosate, the active ingredient in the common herbicide Roundup, on developing chicken embryos. Few studies have examined toxic effects of glyphosate alone versus the full compound formulations of Roundup, which include adjuvants and surfactants. Adjutants and surfactants are added to aid in solubility and absorption of glyphosate. In this study chicken embryos were exposed at the air cell on embryonic day 6 to 19.8 or 9.9 mg / Kg egg mass of glyphosate in Roundup or glyphosate only. Chickens treated with 19.8 and 9.9 mg / Kg glyphosate in Roundup showed significant reduction in survivability compared to glyphosate alone treatments and controls. On embryonic day 18, embryos were sacrificed for evaluation of developmental toxicity using wet embryo mass, dry embryo mass, and yolk mass as indicators. Morphology measurements were ...
Rac2D57N is the only mutation in any Rho GTPase identified in a human syndrome (Ambruso et al., 2000). The patient harboring the Rac2D57N mutation had severe neutrophil dysfunction characterized by impaired responsiveness to Gram-negative bacteria. Rac2 expression in different hematopoietic cell lineages indicates the potential for defects induced by Rac2D57N in multiple cell types. Using quantitative RT-PCR, we showed that Rac2 is expressed at levels similar to Rac1 in the primary murine macrophage prompting the examination of the effect of Rac2D57N expression in the macrophage. Our studies, for the first time, clearly demonstrate two inhibitory functions of Rac2D57N that effect remodeling of the actin cytoskeleton and MAPK signal transduction. Thus, Rac2D57N functions as a dominant inhibitory mutant.. Rac2D57N has dramatic effects on the macrophage actin cytoskeleton. Rac2D57N was found in the cell cytoplasm and periphery, and colocalized with large, perinuclear actin aggregates. Rac2D57N ...

Quantify the intensity and amount of staining in cell nuclei, while including only cells of interest based on nuclear morphology and size.
The aging process can be accelerated by numerous cellular and molecular variables. Progeroid syndromes are one such example. The phenotypes of Hutchinson-Gilford Progeria Syndrome (HGPS) and Restrictive Dermopathy (RD) are both caused by an irregular pathway of the processing of prelamin A to mature lamin A, an integral component of the nuclear lamina. In wild-type cells, prelamin A undergoes farnesylation followed by cleavage that is carried out by the enzyme Zmpste24. A 50 amino acid deletion in the LMNA gene found in HGPS patients eliminates the cleavage site in prelamin A, causing an accumulation of farnesylated prelamin A. The buildup of this protein, known as progerin/LA∆50, occurs at the nuclear rim. In RD, nonfarnesylated and farnesylated prelamin A build up due to a deficiency in the Zmpste24 cleaving enzyme. In both syndromes, however, the accumulation of the different forms of prelamin A causes nuclear shape abnormalities and leads to phenotypes resembling premature aging. Currently, there
The structure of the doubly-odd180 Re nucleus has been studied by means of in-beam gamma-ray spectroscopy at the Australian National University. Excited states in 180 Re have been populated using the fusion-evaporation reaction 174Yb(11B,5n) at a bombarding energy of 71 MeV. Gamma-rays have been observed by using the CAESAR detector array which consists of six Hyper-Pure Germanium (HPGe) detector and two Low Energy Photon Spectrometers (LEPS). The level scheme of 180 Re was established from the analysis of gamma-gamma coincidence relations, Directional Correlations of gamma-rays from Oriented states (DCO), electron conversion measurements and gamma-ray intensity balances. Energy levels of intrinsic states have been compared with calculations based on the Blocked BCS (BBCS) theory as well as Potential Energy Surface (PES) calculations which were also used to determine the nuclear shape. Previously identified bands have been observed in this work. Their band-head spins, however, have been ...

North Carolina State University Oxygen-16, one of the key elements of life on earth, is produced by a series of reactions inside of red giant stars. Now a team of physicists, including one from North Carolina State University, has revealed how the elements nuclear shape changes depending on its state, even though other attributes such as spin and parity dont appear to differ. Their findings may shed light on how oxygen is produced.. Carbon and oxygen are formed when helium burns inside of red giant stars. Carbon-12 forms when three helium-4 nuclei combine in a very specific way (called the triple alpha process), and oxygen-16 is the combination of a carbon-12 and another helium-4 nucleus.. Although physicists knew what oxygen-16 was made of, they were still puzzled by the fact that both the ground and first excited states of the element had zero spin and positive parity. A similar situation occurs in carbon-12 with the ground state and second zero-spin state known as the Hoyle state. At room ...
As cells mature, from the most immature or blast cell to the final mature stage, they undergo numerous biochemical, structural and metabolic changes. The cytologic features of cells, as observed on Wrights stained peripheral blood and bone marrow smears, reflect such biochemical and structural developments. The general features of cell differentiation are common to most blood cells. Immature cells have delicate, fine nuclear chromatin which gradually becomes coarsely clumped or condensed. The size of the nucleus decreases; nucleoli are reduced in number or lost completely as in red cells. The nuclear shape which is initially round or oval may become uniquely confirgured as in myeloid cells. Mitotic competence is lost as cells differentiate.. ...

College Park, MD (PRWEB) December 10, 2015 -- Progeria is a rare genetic disease that mimics the normal aging process at an accelerated rate. Symptoms
Aging affects all people and is a complex process involving both genetic and environmental factors in a way that is not yet completely understood. Studies of premature aging syndromes might be helpful to acquire further clues to understand the molecular mechanisms explaining how aging occurs. Hutchinson-Gilford progeria syndrome (HGPS or progeria) is a genetic disease causing segmental premature aging in children, with an approximated incidence of 1 in 20 million individuals. Children affected by progeria appear normal at birth, but they begin developing symptoms of disease within the first years of life. Symptoms of HGPS include severe growth retardation, scleroderma-like skin changes, bone and tooth abnormalities, and loss of hair and body fat. The children with progeria die prematurely at a median age of 14.6 years, due to complications from cardiovascular disease and atherosclerosis ...

Parakeratosis is a mode of keratinization characterized by the retention of nuclei in the stratum corneum. In mucous membranes, parakeratosis is normal. In the skin, this process leads to the abnormal replacement of annular squames with nucleated cells. Parakeratosis is associated with the thinning or loss of the granular layer and is usually seen in diseases of increased cell turnover, whether inflammatory or neoplastic. Parakeratosis is seen in the plaques of psoriasis and in dandruff. Granular parakeratosis (originally termed axillary granular parakeratosis) is an idiopathic, benign, nondisabling cutaneous disease that manifests with intertriginous erythematous, brown or red, scaly or keratotic papules and plaques. It presents in all age groups and has no established clinical associations.

During interphase in all eukaryotic cells the double lipid bilayer of the nuclear envelope (NE) physically separates the chromosomes, and chromosome-related processes, from the cytoplasm and increases in area by 59% (Lim et al., 2007) as the nuclear volume doubles in preparation for mitosis (reviewed by Hetzer et al., 2005; Lim et al., 2007; Winey et al., 1997). In the open mitosis of animal cells, NE breakdown allows the spindle microtubules that are nucleated by the cytoplasmic centrosomes to attach to and then separate the chromosomes. In the closed mitosis of yeast, the centrosome equivalents, called spindle pole bodies (SPBs), are embedded in the NE and nucleate the formation of an intranuclear spindle (Ding et al., 1997). As the spindle elongates in anaphase B, nuclear volume remains constant but division of the roughly spherical nucleus into two smaller spheres, which occurs in less than 5 minutes, requires a rapid increase of 26% in NE area (Lim et al., 2007).. The nucleus, often thought ...
Progeria ( /proʊˈdʒɪəriə/)[1], also called Hutchinson-Gilford progeria syndrome[2][3] and HGPS progeria syndrome[3] is a very rare genetic disorder. Children born with progeria show symptoms which are like aging.[4] This can include skin wrinkles and grey hair or baldness.[1] Progeria is one of several progeroid syndromes.[5] The word progeria comes from the Greek words "pro" (πρό), meaning "before" or "premature", and "gēras" (γῆρας), meaning "old age".[6] It is very rare, only 1 child in every 8 million live births.[7] People with progeria usually only live to their mid teens to early twenties.[8][9] It is a genetic condition that occurs as a new mutation. It is rarely inherited, as people with the condition do not usually live long enough to have children. Scientists are studying progeria because it might reveal clues about the normal process of aging.[10][11][12] Progeria was first described in 1886 by Jonathan Hutchinson.[13] It was also described independently in 1897 by ...

Hutchinson-Gilford progeria syndrome (HGPS) is caused by a point mutation in the LMNA gene that activates a cryptic donor splice site and yields a truncated form of prelamin A called progerin. Small amounts of progerin are also produced during normal aging. Studies with mouse models of HGPS have allowed the recent development of the first therapeutic approaches for this disease. However, none of these earlier works have addressed the aberrant and pathogenic LMNA splicing observed in HGPS patients because of the lack of an appropriate mouse model. Here, we report a genetically modified mouse strain that carries the HGPS mutation.

Scientists have discovered a drug they believe can reverse the effects of premature aging and could extend human life by over a decade. Rapamycin was created from a chemical found in the soil on Easter Island, which is one of the most remote places on Earth and 2,000 miles off the coast of Chile. The drug, which has been nicknamed the "forever young" drug, was used in experiments on children suffering from Hutchinson-Gilford Progeria Syndrome (HGPS). HGPS is a rare condition in which aging is hyper-accelerate and sufferers die of "old age" at around 12 years. HGPS causes a protein called progerin to build up in every cell of the body, causing them to age prematurely. Rapamycin cleaned the cells of progerin, which swept away the defects and left healthy cells. Researchers are expected to start looking at whether the drug could be used more widely, after similarities between HGPS and the normal aging process were uncovered. The drug is already used to suppress the immune system in organ ...
Progeria is a rare genetic condition characterized by an appearance of accelerated aging in children. Its name is derived from the Greek and means prematurely old. The classic type is the Hutchinson-Gilford Progeria Syndrome which was first described in England in 1886 by Dr. Jonathan Hutchinson and again in 1886 and 1904 by Dr. Hastings Gilford.

Hutchinson-Gilford progeria syndrome (HGPS) is an extremely rare genetic disorder wherein symptoms resembling aspects of aging are manifested at a very early age. It is a genetic condition that occurs due to a de novo mutation in the LMNA gene encoding for the nuclear structural protein lamin A. The lamin family of proteins are thought to be involved in nuclear stability, chromatin structure and gene expression and this leads to heavy effects on the regulation and functionality of the cell machinery. The functional role of the large-conductance calcium-activated potassium channels (BKCa) is still unclear, but has been recently described a strong relationship with their membrane expression, progerin nuclear levels and the ageing process. In this study, we found that: i) the outward potassium membrane current amplitude and the fluorescence intensity of the BKCa channel probe showed higher values in human dermal fibroblast obtained from patients affected by HGPS if

Hutchinson-Gilford Progeria Syndrome is caused by a single point mutation in the gene encoding lamin A, which forms a protein scaffold on the inner edge of the nucleus that helps maintain chromatin structure and organize nuclear processes such as RNA and DNA synthesis. The mutation creates an alternative splice site that leads to the production of a truncated version of the protein known as progerin. Unlike the full-length protein, progerin does not properly integrate into the nuclear lamina, which disrupts the nuclear scaffold and causes a host of problems ...
Progerias striking features resemble the aging process put on fast-forward and afflicted people rarely live beyond 13 years. Almost all of the patients die from complications of arteriosclerosis-the clogging or hardening of arteries or blood vessels caused by plaques-which leads to heart attack and stroke. Scientists are particularly interested in progeria in the hopes that it might reveal clues to the normal human aging process. However, the disease is exceedingly rare and only 64 children living with progeria are known making access to patients very difficult.

Over the years, Ive learned three basic principles of plant growth that help me decide where to make a precise pruning cut. First, apical buds (at the tip of a branch) have dominance over lateral buds (on the side of a branch), so the removal of the apical bud results in the growth of lateral buds. When a cut is made just above a bud, that bud will usually become dominant, but if a cut is made mid stem, a flush of growth from a number of buds along the stem may occur ...

In 2008, European clinical trials began on twelve children suffering from Progeria. The treatment is based on a combination of two existing molecules: statins (prescribed in the treatment and prevention of atherosclerosis and cardiovascular risks) and aminobisphosphonates (prescribed in to treat osteoporosis and to prevent complications in some forms of cancer). The use of both these molecules aims to chemically alter progerin to reduce its toxicity. However, although this treatment aimed to slow down the development of the disease, it did not reduce the quantities of progerin. To study this aspect, researchers needed to obtain a relevant animal model. An "authentic" Progeria model… To generate a model of this kind, Spanish and French researchers decided to introduce a gene mutation (G609G), equivalent to that identified in humans (G608G), in mice to reproduce the exact pathological mechanism found in the children, with a view to then blocking it. The mice models were created under the ...
After the assessment of the genotoxic potential, further cultivation and investigation regarding carcinogenic transformations of the daughter cells can be performed. The figure shows cells of a down stream culture 384 hours after exposure and subsequent removal of the test compound. The number of nuclei with a brighter fluorescence signal is higher in exposed cells compared to control cells. These alterations of the nuclear morphology correspond to the irreversible condensation of chromatin, known as pyknosis, which is thought to be associated with the carcinogenic transformation of stem cells.. ...

|div class=ep_strongtext|Speakers: Prof. Paul Nolan, Physics Department Liverpool University |/div| |p|Speaker: Professor Paul Nolan|br|Most radioactive nuclei decay by emitting gamma radiation. For a given isotopes the energies of the gamma rays emitted are unique. This means that an accurate measurement of the gamma radiation emitted by an unknown isotope allows it to be identified uniquely. There are many different circumstances when the measurement of gamma radiation gives important information. The energies of gamma rays emitted by an excited nucleus gives information on the neutrons and protons that make up the nucleus and on the nuclear shape (spherical or deformed?). The measurement of the gamma radiation from an unknown source allows radioactive material to be identified and its exact nature determined. This has uses in security applications and following incidents such as Chernobyl or Fukushima. Gamma ray emitting isotopes are also widely used in medical diagnostic using imaging modalities
Researchers at the Centro Nacional de Investigaciones Cardiovasculares (CNIC) and the Universidad de Oviedo have discovered a new molecular mechanism involved in the premature development of atherosclerosis in mice with Hutchinson-Gilford progeria syndrome (HGPS). Moreover, the results, published in EMBO Molecular Medicine, identify a potential therapeutic target for this severe genetic disease, which is characterized by the premature onset of cardiovascular disease and early death, usually from a heart attack or stroke, between the ages of 6 and 20 years.. Progeria is very rare genetic disease caused by a mutation in the LMNA gene. The disease affects an estimated 400 people worldwide. HGPS patients show accelerated aging linked to a high risk of cardiovascular disease. In the words of study leader Vicente Andrés, studying this disease "brings us closer to a possible treatment for disease victims and can provide important information about normal physiological aging and the factors that ...

In a study, researchers found that decreased levels of HDL cholesterol may contribute to premature heart disease in children with Hutchinson-Gilford Progeria Syndrome, or Progeria.
Hutchinson‐Gilford progeria syndrome (HGPS, or just plain progeria) is perhaps the best known of the rare but striking accelerated aging conditions caused by genetic mutation. These are not in fact accelerated aging, despite the apparent outcome, but rather DNA repair deficiencies. The water is always muddy when talking about damage and aging, however. Aging is just an accumulation of damage, and progeria is perhaps best thought of as an ordinarily fairly unimportant aspect of aging run amok to create a great deal of damage and dysfunction in cells and tissues.. Over the past decade or so researchers have come to a good understanding of the cause and mechanisms of progeria. An otherwise minor mutation in the LMNA gene leads to the generation of broken forms of a vital cellular structural protein, lamin A, and things go downhill from there: a progeria patients cells are greatly malformed and perform poorly at the most crucial of their tasks. Interestingly, dysfunctional forms of this protein ...
