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)

N2 - Although eukaryotic cells are known to alternate between advancing episodes of fast and persistent movement and hesitation episodes of low speed and low persistence, the molecular mechanism that controls the dynamic changes in morphology, speed and persistence of eukaryotic migratory cells remains unclear. Here, we show that the movement of the interphase nucleus during random cell migration switches intermittently between two distinct modes-rotation and translocation-that follow with high fidelity the sequential rounded and elongated morphologies of the nucleus and cell body, respectively. Nuclear rotation and translocation mediate the stopand-go motion of the cell through the dynamic formation and dissolution, respectively, of the contractile perinuclear actin cap, which is dynamically coupled to the ...

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 ...
Nuclear shape is different in stem cells and differentiated cells and reflects important changes in the mechanics of the nuclear envelope (NE). The current framework emphasizes the key role of the nuclear lamina in nuclear mechanics and its alterations in disease 1, 2 . Whether active stress controls nuclear deformations and how this stress interplays with properties of the NE to control NE dynamics is unclear. We address this in the early Drosophila embryo, where profound changes in NE shape parallel the transcriptional activation of the zygotic genome. We show that microtubule (MT) polymerization events produce the elementary forces necessary for NE dynamics. Moreover, large-scale NE-deformations associated with groove formation require concentration of microtubule polymerization in bundles organized by Dynein. However, MT bundles cannot produce grooves when the farnesylated inner nuclear membrane protein Charleston/Kugelkern (Char/Kuk) is absent 3, 4 . Although it increases stiffness of the NE, Char

Control group remained in home cage for equiduration of time to match their corresponding treatment groups. The animals were ...
DOCK8 mutations result in an inherited combined immunodeficiency characterized by increased susceptibility to skin and other infections. We show that when DOCK8-deficient T and NK cells migrate through confined spaces, they develop cell shape and nuclear deformation abnormalities that do not impair chemotaxis but contribute to a distinct form of catastrophic cell death we term cytothripsis. Such defects arise during lymphocyte migration in collagen-dense tissues when DOCK8, through CDC42 and p21-activated kinase (PAK), is unavailable to coordinate cytoskeletal structures. Cytothripsis of DOCK8-deficient cells prevents the generation of long-lived skin-resident memory CD8 T cells, which in turn impairs control of herpesvirus skin infections. Our results establish that DOCK8-regulated shape integrity of lymphocytes prevents cytothripsis and promotes antiviral immunity in the skin.

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 ...

LINC complexes are evolutionarily conserved nuclear envelope bridges, physically connecting the nucleus to the peripheral cytoskeleton. They are pivotal for dynamic cellular and developmental processes, like nuclear migration, anchoring and positioning, meiotic chromosome movements and maintenance of cell polarity and nuclear shape. Active nuclear reshaping is a hallmark of mammalian sperm development and, by transducing cytoskeletal forces to the nuclear envelope, LINC complexes could be vital for sperm head formation as well. We here analyzed in detail the behavior and function of Sun4, a bona fide testis-specific LINC component. We demonstrate that Sun4 is solely expressed in spermatids and there localizes to the posterior nuclear envelope, likely interacting with Sun3/Nesprin1 LINC components. Our study revealed that Sun4 deficiency severely impacts the nucleocytoplasmic junction, leads to mislocalization of other LINC components and interferes with the formation of the microtubule ...

However, the mechanics and forces that shape the nucleus are not well understood. Here, we demonstrate that when an adherent cell is detached from its substratum, the nucleus undergoes a large volumetric reduction accompanied by a morphological transition from an almost smooth to a heavily folded surface. We develop a mathematical model that systematically analyzes the evolution of nuclear shape and volume. The analysis suggests that the pressure difference across the nuclear envelope, which is ...

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 ...

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
As noted earlier, some progeroid syndromes in humans are caused by missense mutations in lamin A, for example R644C and E578V (8). R644C and E578V fibroblasts did not have an accumulation of prelamin A (data not shown) but nevertheless contained misshapen nuclei, presumably because of the structurally and functionally abnormal lamin A. We predicted that a FTI might be effective in improving nuclear shape in the R644C and E578V fibroblasts because the FTI would prevent the biogenesis of mature lamin A and because the nonfarnesylated prelamin A would be located largely in the nucleoplasm. Indeed, the frequency of misshapen nuclei in R644C fibroblasts was reduced with a FTI (P = 0.0003 and P = 0.002 in two independent experiments) (Fig. 6D ). Similarly, the frequency of misshapen nuclei in E578V fibroblasts was reduced by the FTI treatment (P , 0.0001 in two independent experiments) (Fig. 6D ).. The missense mutations that we examined, R644C and E578V, are located in the carboxyl terminus of lamin ...

Since the free radical theory of aging proposed by Harman in the 1950s, oxidative stress (OS) remains one of the most frequently cited causes for aging. However, the precise molecular control of senescence induced by OS is far from being fully elucidated. In addition to OS, telomere erosion, defects in the DDR and alterations in the nuclear architecture are also associated with premature aging. The potential interplay between these different processes leading to senescence remains poorly understood, and no unifying model can be constructed. Progeroid syndromes have often been classified into two categories: laminopathies, such as Hutchinson-Gilford progeria (HGP) syndrome, associated with alterations in nuclear shape resulting from the deregulation of lamin A/Cand the DDR defect syndromes, such as Ataxia telangiectasia (AT). Lamins A/C, B1 and B2 are the major constituents of the lamina, which lines the inner nuclear membrane and determines its shape and integrity. Based on their localisation ...
LINC complexes are evolutionarily conserved nuclear envelope bridges, composed of SUN (Sad-1/UNC-84) and KASH (Klarsicht/ANC-1/Syne/homology) domain proteins. They are crucial for nuclear positioning and nuclear shape determination, and also mediate nuclear envelope (NE) attachment of meiotic telomeres, essential for driving homolog synapsis and recombination. In mice, SUN1 and SUN2 are the only SUN domain proteins expressed during meiosis, sharing their localization with meiosis-specific KASH5. Recent studies have shown that loss of SUN1 severely interferes with meiotic processes. Absence of SUN1 provokes defective telomere attachment and causes infertility. Here, we report that meiotic telomere attachment is not entirely lost in mice deficient for SUN1, but numerous telomeres are still attached to the NE through SUN2/KASH5-LINC complexes. In Sun12/2 meiocytes attached telomeres retained the capacity to form bouquetlike clusters. Furthermore, we could detect significant numbers of late meiotic ...
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 ...

textbf{BACKGROUND}$: Hutchinson-Gilford progeria syndrome (HGPS) is a fatal sporadic autosomal dominant premature ageing disease caused by single base mutations that optimise a cryptic splice site within exon 11 of the $\textit{LMNA}$ gene. The resultant disease-causing protein, progerin, acts as a dominant negative. Disease severity relies partly on progerin levels. $\textbf{METHODS AND RESULTS}$: We report a novel form of somatic mosaicism, where a child possessed two cell populations with different HGPS disease-producing mutations of the same nucleotide-one producing severe HGPS and one mild HGPS. The proband possessed an intermediate phenotype. The mosaicism was initially discovered when Sanger sequencing showed a c.1968+2T,A mutation in blood DNA and a c.1968+2T,C in DNA from cultured fibroblasts. Deep sequencing of DNA from the probands blood revealed 4.7% c.1968+2T,C mutation, and 41.3% c.1968+2T,A mutation. $\textbf{CONCLUSIONS}$: We hypothesise that the germline mutation was ...
The vascular pathology of HGPS has puzzled physicians and biomedical investigators for decades (8, 40, 41). Despite an absence of the typical risk factors for atherosclerosis, children with HGPS succumb to heart attacks or stroke, a consequence of occlusions in the coronary and cerebral arteries (52, 53). The arterial pathology in HGPS must be caused by progerin, but the underlying mechanisms have remained unclear. In the current studies, we investigated the vascular pathology in HGPS mice and developed three insights into pathogenesis. The first relates to why the aorta develops disease while other tissues are spared. We found that the aorta produces more progerin than any other tissue-more than the skin and bone (two tissues affected by HGPS) and ~15-fold more than the kidney (an unaffected tissue). Electron micrographs of aortic SMCs of HGPS mice revealed striking abnormalities-intranuclear membrane vesicles and vacuoles in the cytoplasm. The second insight is that mechanical forces influence ...

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.. ...

Correcting the mutation that causes progeria with base editing leads to strong symptom reduction and longer lifespan in an animal model
College Park, MD (PRWEB) December 10, 2015 -- Progeria is a rare genetic disease that mimics the normal aging process at an accelerated rate. Symptoms
Hutchinson-Gilford progeria syndrome (HGPS) is a rare human genetic disease that leads to a severe premature ageing phenotype, caused by mutations in the LMNA gene. The LMNA gene codes for lamin-A and lamin-C proteins, which are structural components of the nuclear lamina. HGPS is usually caused by a de novo C1824T mutation that leads to the accumulation of a dominant negative form of lamin-A called progerin. Progerin also accumulates physiologically in normal ageing cells as a rare splicing form of lamin-A transcripts. From this perspective, HGPS cells seem to be good candidates for the study of the physiological mechanisms of ageing. Progerin accumulation leads to faster cellular senescence, stem cell depletion and the progeroid phenotype. Tissues of mesodermic origin are especially affected by HGPS. HGPS patients usually have a bad quality of life and, with current treatments, their life expectancy does not exceed their second decade at best. Though progerin can be expressed in almost any tissue,
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. These mice accumulate progerin, present histological and transcriptional alterations characteristic of progeroid models, and phenocopy the main clinical manifestations of human HGPS, including shortened life span and bone and cardiovascular aberrations. Using this animal model, we have developed an antisense morpholino-based therapy that prevents the pathogenic Lmna ...

  • This gene produces a protein called lamin A, which sits just inside the cell's nucleus, under the nuclear membrane. (
  • Now, a team of investigators from the Northwestern University Center for Cancer Nanotechnology Excellence (Northwestern CCNE) has developed star-shaped nanoparticle that can deliver a drug directly to a cancer cell's nucleus an important feature for many potential anticancer therapies. (
  • The Northwestern CCNE team, led by Teri Odom, also reported that it was able to directly image at nanoscale dimensions how nanoparticles interact with a cancer cell's nucleus. (
  • They are attracted to a protein on the cancer cell's surface that conveniently shuttles the nanostars to the cell's nucleus. (
  • Create a flat blue circle for the cell's nucleus. (
  • nucleus -- a cell's control center. (
  • It coordinates the cell's activities, which include growth, intermediary metabolism, protein synthesis and cell division by regulating gene expression. (
  • It is contained within the cell's nucleus. (
  • Inside the cell's nucleus, the double helix folds up in myriad loops and twists. (
  • The mitochondria are located outside the nucleus in the cell's cytoplasm . (
  • The animal cell nucleus is a spherical structure within the cell's plasma membrane. (
  • Mitochondria - generates the energy necessary to sustain cell life by breaking down nutrients and transforming them into "food" molecules for the cell. (
  • Cells with progeria also have misshapen and defective mitochondria, which are the small organelles that produce energy for the cell. (
  • Although previous studies suggested damage to mitochondria in progeria cells, the current study is the first to document the nature and extent of this damage in detail. (
  • Cao and her colleagues found that a majority of the mitochondria in progeria cells become swollen and fragmented, making it impossible for the defective mitochondria to function. (
  • The team found that methylene blue reverses the damages to both the nucleus and mitochondria in progeria cells remarkably well. (
  • The normal aging process degrades mitochondria over time, causing these older mitochondria to resemble the mitochondria seen in progeria cells. (
  • 6. Organelles that are found in the cytoplasm of a cell include the nucleus, vacuole, endoplasmic reticulum, mitochondria and Golgi apparatus. (
  • Place these throughout the cell to serve as the mitochondria. (
  • While most of our DNA is in the chromosomes in the cell nucleus , some of our DNA is in another important structure called the mitochondrion (plural: mitochondria). (
  • Much of the DNA in our mitochondria is used to manufacture proteins involved in the key function of mitochondria -- to produce energy and power the cells in our body. (
  • On the right are CECs from heart attack patients which appear abnormally large, misshapen and with multiple nuclei. (
  • giant cells with multiple nuclei. (
  • some cells had multiple nuclei. (
  • The number and shape of chromosomes in the nucleus of a cell. (
  • Each mitochondrion has a chromosome made of DNA that is quite different from the better known chromosomes in the nucleus. (
  • The nucleolus is a membraneless organelle embedded in chromatin solution inside the cell nucleus. (
  • Ribosomal RNA genes shape chromatin domains associating with the nucleolus. (
  • 5. The nucleus consists of chromosomes and a nucleolus. (
  • Place the nucleus with the nucleolus near the centre of the box top. (
  • Nucleus contained a nucleolus-like dense region. (
  • The nucleolus is prominent within the nucleus. (
  • Other organelles and the nucleolus are found inside the nucleus. (
  • The nucleolus is the structure in the nucleus that aids in the manufacture of ribosomes and is usually. (
  • It's rare for proteins to carry out tasks in both compartments, and it's never been seen before for a structural protein like Wash, Parkhurst said, except in cases where such proteins play a different role in the nucleus. (
  • The lamin proteins form a mesh that lines the inside of the nucleus, helping to keep its shape. (
  • But so far, nobody has found proteins that shape the scaffolding of both the nucleus and cytoplasm, so the researchers were surprised to find that Wash is also present in abundance in the nucleus. (
  • Because epigenetic changes help determine whether genes are turned on or off, they influence the production of proteins in cells. (
  • This regulation helps ensure that each cell produces only proteins that are necessary for its function. (
  • For example, proteins that promote bone growth are not produced in muscle cells. (
  • Histones are structural proteins in the cell nucleus. (
  • Rough endoplasmic reticulum folds and processes proteins that have been made at the ribosomes, transports proteins around the cell. (
  • Found on the surface of animal cells, it's mainly made of lipids and proteins. (
  • Once osteoblasts turn into osteocytes, they express different proteins and settle themselves into life as active bone regulatory cells. (
  • 3. The main organic compounds in cell are carbohydrates, lipids, proteins and nucleic acids. (
  • Animation 15: DNA and proteins are key molecules of the cell nucleus. (
  • Therefore, proteins come in many different shapes and sizes. (
  • They were able to measure how much stiffer the nucleus got when prodded repeatedly, and thus find out which cell protein or proteins might play a role in controlling this response, which could work as a new method of detecting cancer in early stage. (
  • In mammals, the lamin meshworks that make up the nuclear lamina consist of mainly two types of lamin proteins, known as types A and B, which are wrapped like two nets around the nucleus. (
  • This is a cyclin dependant protein kinase called cyclin B-cdc2 (cdk1) kinase (cyclins are regulatory proteins that mediate the enzymatic activity of protein kinases) that plays a major role in the regulation of cell cycle. (
  • Efforts to understand nuclear organization in plant cells have received little assistance from the better-studied animal nuclei, because plant proteomes do not contain recognizable counterparts to the key animal proteins involved in nuclear organization, such as lamin nuclear intermediate filament proteins. (
  • Very little is known about the proteins or pathways that lead to the observed diversity in nuclear morphology or about the mechanisms that link the differentiated state of a cell to changes in nuclear morphology. (
  • It also helps the cell move proteins, chromosomes and other materials, including the cells organelles, around the cell. (
  • It also makes lipids, breaks down drugs and other substances, and packages up proteins to release from the cell. (
  • These proteins can then be used by the cell for other purposes, such as to build new structures, repair damage, and direct chemical reactions. (
  • Nucleus acts as the site for gene transcription and it is here that mRNA is formed and undergoes post-transcriptional modification before being sent to the cytoplasm for translation (for making the proteins). (
  • The proteins are responsible for the shape, and therefore the function, of most biomolecular structures. (
  • The findings may yield new insights for genetic diseases affecting proteins that help shape the endoplasmic reticulum. (
  • The endoplasmic reticulum (ER) is an organelle that makes and distributes many substances the cell needs, such as proteins, lipids, and sugars. (
  • Several proteins help shape the ER's structure within the cytoplasm (gel-like fluid) of a cell. (
  • Mutations in these ER-shaping proteins have been linked to diseases such as hereditary spastic paraplegia-a group of genetic disorders characterized by progressive weakness and stiffness of the legs. (
  • Superresolution imaging across the ER revealed that proteins and lipids are packed into a dense network of tubular-shaped structures―even in areas that have been conventionally classified as sheets. (
  • Confocal microscopy revealed that ER-shaping proteins called ATL GTPases, which are characteristic of tubules, are also found scattered throughout sheets. (
  • From a neurologic point of view, we work on a class of genetic diseases where the patients have mutations in proteins that control the shape of ER," Blackstone says. (
  • The cell walls are made up of four components: chitin, glucans, proteins and melanin. (
  • Some of the proteins keep water within the cells, protecting the fungus from dehydration. (
  • Ribosome -- structure in which the cytoplasm of a cell where proteins are made. (
  • The DNA in a gene spells out specific instructions-much like in a cookbook recipe - for making proteins (say: PRO-teens) in the cell. (
  • In the majority of healthy cells, the nucleus appears smooth and maintains an overall spherical shape, but abnormal nuclear shapes characterized by blebs have been observed in the cells of people suffering from some forms of cancer and other diseases. (
  • They noted that spherical nuclei-the most abundant type overall and the predominant nuclear shape in the meristems-were just one of many nuclear shapes found within the epidermal and pavement cells. (
  • 1 ] proposed local maxima detection followed by 3D spherical approximation for nuclei segmentation in Caenorhabditis elegans . (
  • Morphological analysis of DCN neurons patch-clamped with biocytin-containing electrodes revealed a significant overlap in the distributions of the soma sizes of GAD-positive and GAD-negative cells. (
  • We conclude that GABAergic DCN neurons are specialized to convey phasic spike rate information, whereas tonic spike rate is more faithfully relayed by the large non-GABAergic cells. (
  • Numerous pyramidally shaped neurons are present within perineuronal spaces. (
  • Cerebellar granule cells account for the majority of neurons in the human brain. (
  • The existence of gap junctions between granule cells allows multiple neurons to be coupled to one another allowing multiple cells to act in synchrony and to allow signalling functions necessary for granule cell development to occur. (
  • The granule cells in the dorsal cochlear nucleus are small neurons with two or three short dendrites that give rise to a few branches with expansions at the terminals. (
