Calculation of a Gap restoration in the membrane skeleton of the red blood cell: possible role for myosin II in local repair. (1/382)

Human red blood cells contain all of the elements involved in the formation of nonmuscle actomyosin II complexes (V. M. Fowler. 1986. J. Cell. Biochem. 31:1-9; 1996. Curr. Opin. Cell Biol. 8:86-96). No clear function has yet been attributed to these complexes. Using a mathematical model for the structure of the red blood cell spectrin skeleton (M. J. Saxton. 1992. J. Theor. Biol. 155:517-536), we have explored a possible role for myosin II bipolar minifilaments in the restoration of the membrane skeleton, which may be locally damaged by major mechanical or chemical stress. We propose that the establishment of stable links between distant antiparallel actin protofilaments after a local myosin II activation may initiate the repair of the disrupted area. We show that it is possible to define conditions in which the calculated number of myosin II minifilaments bound to actin protofilaments is consistent with the estimated number of myosin II minifilaments present in the red blood cells. A clear restoration effect can be observed when more than 50% of the spectrin polymers of a defined area are disrupted. It corresponds to a significant increase in the spectrin density in the protein free region of the membrane. This may be involved in a more complex repair process of the red blood cell membrane, which includes the vesiculation of the bilayer and the compaction of the disassembled spectrin network.  (+info)

Structural and functional consequences of antigenic modulation of red blood cells with methoxypoly(ethylene glycol). (2/382)

We previously showed that the covalent modification of the red blood cell (RBC) surface with methoxypoly(ethylene glycol) [mPEG; MW approximately 5 kD] could significantly attenuate the immunologic recognition of surface antigens. However, to make these antigenically silent RBC a clinically viable option, the mPEG-modified RBC must maintain normal cellular structure and functions. To this end, mPEG-derivatization was found to have no significant detrimental effects on RBC structure or function at concentrations that effectively blocked antigenic recognition of a variety of RBC antigens. Importantly, RBC lysis, morphology, and hemoglobin oxidation state were unaffected by mPEG-modification. Furthermore, as shown by functional studies of Band 3, a major site of modification, PEG-binding does not affect protein function, as evidenced by normal SO4- flux. Similarly, Na+ and K+ homeostasis were unaffected. The functional aspects of the mPEG-modified RBC were also maintained, as evidenced by normal oxygen binding and cellular deformability. Perhaps most importantly, mPEG-derivatized mouse RBC showed normal in vivo survival ( approximately 50 days) with no sensitization after repeated transfusions. These data further support the hypothesis that the covalent attachment of nonimmunogenic materials (eg, mPEG) to intact RBC may have significant application in transfusion medicine, especially for the chronically transfused and/or allosensitized patient.  (+info)

Role of bilirubin overproduction in revealing Gilbert's syndrome: is dyserythropoiesis an important factor? (3/382)

Gilbert's syndrome was diagnosed in 37 patients with unconjugated hyperbilirubinaemia without overt haemolysis or structural liver abnormality, who had a marked reduction in hepatic bilirubin UDP-glucuronosyltransferase activity (B-GTA) (as compared with that of 23 normal subjects). No significant correlation existed in these patients between serum bilirubin level and the values of B-GTA, thus suggesting that factors other than a low B-GTA must influence the degree of hyperbilirubinaemia in Gilbert's syndrome. Studies of 51Cr erythrocyte survival and 59Fe kinetics in 10 unselected patients demonstrated slight haemolysis in eight, whereas mild ineffective erythropoiesis was suggested in all from a low 24-hour incorporation of radioactive iron into circulating red cells. This overproduction of bilirubin resulting from mild haemolysis and perhaps dyserythropoiesis might reflect only an extreme degree of the normal situation. It certainly contributes to the hyperbilirubinaemia of Gilbert's syndrome and may play a major role in the manifestation of this condition.  (+info)

The effects of cell ageing on metabolism in rainbow trout (Oncorhynchus mykiss) red blood cells. (4/382)

The effects of cell age on metabolism in the nucleated red blood cells of rainbow trout (Oncorhynchus mykiss) were examined. Red blood cells were separated according to age using fixed-angle centrifugation. The mean erythrocyte haemoglobin concentration in old red blood cells was found to be 120 % of that in young red blood cells. In young red blood cells, the activities of the mitochondrial enzymes citrate synthase and cytochrome oxidase were 135-200 %, respectively, of those measured in old red blood cells. The activity of the glycolytic enzyme lactate dehydrogenase in young red blood cells was 170 % of that in old red blood cells, whereas the activity of the glycolytic enzyme pyruvate kinase was not significantly affected by cell age. In addition, young red blood cells consumed over twice as much O(2) and devoted 50 % more O(2) to protein synthesis and the activity of Na(+)/K(+)-ATPase than old red blood cells. Red blood cell age did not significantly affect the rate of lactate production. This study shows that ageing in rainbow trout nucleated red blood cells is accompanied by a significant decline in aerobic energy production and the processes it supports, as well as a corresponding increase in the glycolytic contribution to metabolism.  (+info)

Density separated trout erythrocytes, using a discontinuous Percoll gradient, yielded three distinct subfractions (top, middle and bottom) since older cells are characterized by increasing density. Cells from each subfraction were incubated with mitochondria-specific fluorescent probe Mitotracker and JC-1 in order to assess mitochondrial mass and membrane potential by means of cytofluorimetric analysis, confocal microscopy and subsequent computer-aided image analysis allowing a detailed investigation at single cell level. Both cytofluorimetric data and image analysis revealed changes in size and redistribution of mitochondria starting from the light fraction to the bottom. In particular in young erythrocytes small mitochondria were detected localized exclusively around the nucleus in a crown-like shape, the middle fraction revealed enlarged mitochondria partially scattered throughout the cytosol, whereas the last fraction represented again mitochondria with reduced size being distinctly dispersed throughout the cytosol in the cells. Concerning membrane potential considerations, our study revealed a dramatic decrease of DeltaPsi(m) in the bottom layer cell mitochondria compared to the top and unusual membrane potential increase of a subpopulation of enlarged mitochondria. DeltapH was also investigated in the three fractions by pretreating the cells with nigericin, allowing to confirm a mitochondrial energetic impairment in older cells.  (+info)

Spontaneous autorosette-forming cells in man. A marker for a subset population of T lymphocytes? (6/382)

A subpopulation of human peripheral blood lymphocytes are capable of binding with human (autologous or allogeneic) erythrocytes, forming rosettes. The conditions which lead to autorosette formation are similar to those required for sheep red-cell rosetting. Ageing human erythrocytes are shown to bear less of the determinants involved in the phenomenon than younger ones. Evidence is presented that autorosetting is a T-cell marker. As autorosette-forming cells are very sensitive to the inhibiting effects of ATG they could therefore belong to a T-cell subpopulation.  (+info)

Enzymatic removal of oxidized protein aggregates from erythrocyte membranes. (7/382)

Erythrocytes oxidized or aged in the circulation undergo membrane protein aggregation and anti-band 3 autoantibody binding to the cell surface. When human erythrocytes were mildly oxidized in vitro with 0.1 mM Fe(III) at 37 degrees C for 3 h, the aggregation of nonionic detergent C(12)E(8)-insoluble membrane protein and the binding of anti-band 3 IgG to the cell surface were increased. Incubation of membranes isolated from the oxidized cells increased the amount of protein aggregates by 5-fold after 6 h, while incubation for a further 12 h sharply decreased the amount of aggregates. In the presence of diisopropyl fluorophosphate (DFP), however, the increased amount of aggregates was maintained in the subsequent incubation. Western blot analysis of the aggregates using rabbit anti-band 3 showed that band 3 protein aggregates increased in the initial stage of incubation and decreased upon subsequent incubation, whereas the increased band 3 protein aggregates did not subsequently decrease when membranes were incubated in the presence of DFP. Incubation of the oxidized cells at 37 degrees C for 18 h caused reduction of the membrane protein aggregates and the (125)I-anti-band 3 IgG binding to the cell surface, while incubation in the presence of DFP did not cause these reductions. The results suggest that the oxidation-induced cell membrane protein aggregates were probably removed by 80-kDa serine protease, namely, oxidized protein hydrolase (OPH), in the oxidized cell membranes [Fujino et al. (1998) Biochim. Biophys. Acta 1374, 47-54; (1998) J. Biochem. 124, 1077-1085; (2000) Biochim. Biophys. Acta 1478, 102-112], and as a result the increased anti-band 3 binding to the cell surface was reduced.  (+info)

The adrenergic volume changes of immature and mature rainbow trout (Oncorhynchus mykiss) erythrocytes. (8/382)

In this study, we examined whether the adrenergic volume response of teleost erythrocytes is related to cell maturity. Rainbow trout (Oncorhynchus mykiss) were made anaemic by reducing their haematocrit to approximately 50 % of the original value. After 3-4 weeks, small, young erythrocytes were seen in the circulation. By measuring the volume distribution of blood samples from anaemic fish before and after noradrenaline stimulation (10 min, 10(-5)mol l(-1) final concentration), we were able to show that the volume response of young, immature erythrocytes to catecholamine stimulation was greater than that of mature erythrocytes. In addition, the membrane fluidity, measured using the steady-state fluorescence polarisation method, was greater in anaemic fish after 24 days of recovery from bleeding than in control fish. Since blood from anaemic fish contained a large fraction of immature erythrocytes, this result indicates that the fluidity of the membrane of immature erythrocytes is greater than that of mature erythrocytes.  (+info)

We previously demonstrated that a higher systemic DO2I was independently associated with a reduced risk of progression from AKI stage I to AKI stage III. In this study we analysed the components of DO2I individually and found that haemoglobin concentration was not independently associated with AKI progression. Instead, the need for mechanical ventilation, the presence of underlying cardiac disease, raised lactate, higher SOFA score and a higher CVP were all independent risk factors for progression; a higher cardiac index was independently associated with a reduced risk of progression.. The relationship between anaemia and AKI is not fully understood. It is well known that AKI can contribute to the development of anaemia as a result of reduced EPO production, an increased risk of bleeding and reduced red cell life span [28]. It has also been demonstrated that anaemia is a risk factor for the development of AKI in patients undergoing major surgery leading to increased mortality [12, 14, 15]. ...

BACKGROUND: Increased susceptibility to malaria in pregnancy is well recognized, and has generally been assumed to be due to hormonal changes resulting in altered immunity. Based on previous work demonstrating enhanced parasite growth in young normal and thalassemic red blood cells, we hypothesized that in pregnancy increased malaria susceptibility may be due, in part, to the increase in the population of young red cells. METHODS: FC27 strain of Plasmodium falciparum was cultured in the red cells and sera from healthy primigravida pregnant (n=9) and non-pregnant (n=9) women. Red cells from both pregnant and non-pregnant women were each placed in three cultures containing the sera from pregnant, non-pregnant and pooled control samples. Cultures were set up in triplicate and incubated for 144 hours. Parasite development and growth were assessed by slide microscopy. RESULTS: At 96 hours the median parasite growth in cells from pregnant samples (5.7%) was significantly better than that in the non-pregnant

About 1.4 million new cases of cancer are diagnosed each year in the United States, and more than 550,000 people will die each year of the disease. Cancer is the second leading cause of death in the USA. However, improvements in cancer detection, diagnosis, and treatment have increased the survival rate for many types of cancer. About 64 percent of all people diagnosed with cancer will be alive 5 years after diagnosis.. Cancer is a group of many related diseases that begin in cells, the bodys basic building blocks. To understand cancer, it is helpful to know what happens when normal cells become cancerous.. The body is made up of many types of cells. Normally, cells grow and divide to produce more cells as they are needed to keep the body healthy. Sometimes, this orderly process goes wrong. New cells form when the body does not need them, and old cells do not die when they should. The extra cells form a mass of tissue called a growth or tumor. Not all tumors are cancerous; tumors can be benign ...
This killer-disease is causing fear, death and destruction to people from all walks of life. But, thankfully, with the advancement in science and technology, cancer can be treated and cured.. What is cancer ?. Cancer is the name given to a large group of diseases, all of which have one thing in common: cells that are growing out of control. Our body is made up of cells that go through a normal cycle. That is, the old cells in our body die and before they die and vanish, new cells that are constantly formed take over the dead cells. Sometimes, this normal cycle goes out of order, and the cells in our body begin to multiply out of control. This doesnt happen overnight; it happens ...
Every time we cat, we set off the amazingly complicated series of events that make up our metabolic processes: all the chemical reactions that enable us to use food. We use food for energy; we use it for repairing old cells and for making new ones. Thanks
Cancer Cancer is caused by abnormal cells that grow quickly. It is normal for your body to replace old cells with new ones, but cancer cells grow too fast. Some cancer cells may form growths called tumors.
Cells go through a natural life cycle which includes growth, maturity, and death. This natural life cycle is regulated by a number of factors, and the disruption of the cycle is involved in many disease states. For example, cancer cells do not die the way normal cells do at the end of their life cycle. Here we look at the various processes by which cells age and die, both programmed and unprogrammed.

In physiological circumstances, erythrocyte aging leads to binding of autologous IgG followed by recognition and removal through phagocytosis, mainly by Kupffer cells in the liver. This process is triggered by the appearance of a senescent erythrocyte-specific antigen. The functional and structural characteristics of senescent erythrocytes strongly suggest that this antigen originates on band 3, probably by calcium-induced proteolysis. Generation of vesicles enriched in denatured hemoglobin is an integral part of the erythrocyte aging process. These vesicles are also removed by Kupffer cells, with a major role for exposure of phosphatidylserine. Moreover, senescent erythrocyte-specific antigens are present on vesicles. Thus, vesicles and senescent erythrocytes may be recognized and removed through the same signals. These and other, recent data support the theory that erythrocyte aging is a form of apoptosis that is concentrated in the cell membrane, and provide the context for future studies on ...
DESCRIPTION OF CURRENT RESEARCH. Sufficient iron supplies are critical for vital cellular functions, such as energy production and RNA/ DNA processing and repair. In the human body, the vast majority of iron is utilized for hemoglobin synthesis during the daily production of ~200 billion erythrocytes. However, an excess of free iron can cause oxidative damage and lead to organ failure. The maintenance of iron balance is thus essential for the proper functioning of cells and organisms. Broadening our knowledge of the genetic control of iron homeostasis is important for human health. The major objective of research in the Laboratory of Iron Homeostasis is to better understand the processes that impact systemic and cellular iron levels and identify new players in iron-regulatory pathways.. At the systemic level, more than 90% of daily iron needs are met by internal iron recycling from senescent erythrocytes by splenic macrophages. The iron pool in the body is largely preserved. Because iron ...
Expression increases with inflammation or iron overload, and decreases with anemia or hypoxia.. Hepcidin exerts its effects by binding to the iron efflux protein, ferroportin, and inducing its internalization and degradation. This interaction inhibits absorption of dietary iron and inhibits release of storage iron, thus resulting functional iron deficiency.. Inflammation can also contribute to anemia via other mechanisms. For example, inflammation has been shown to cause decreased erythrocyte survival in some species; some studies have implicated inflammatory cytokines as inhibitors of erythropoiesis via direct toxic effects on erythroid precursors, decreased expression of hematopoietic factors, or decreased expression of erythropoitin receptors; and some investigators have suggested that oxidants produced by activated neutrophils cause altered erythrocyte surface antigenicity, in turn lead to accelerated immunological destruction of erythrocytes.. Absolute Iron Deficiency. True iron deficiency ...
In mammals, O2 is transported to tissues bound to the hemoglobin contained within circulating red cells. The mature red cell is 8 μm in diameter, anucleate, discoid in shape, and extremely pliable in order to traverse the microcirculation successfully; its membrane integrity is maintained by the intracellular generation of ATP. Normal red cell production results in the daily replacement of 0.8-1% of all circulating red cells in the body, since the average red cell lives 100-120 days. The organ responsible for red cell production is called the erythron. The erythron is a dynamic organ made up of a rapidly proliferating pool of marrow erythroid precursor cells and a large mass of mature circulating red blood cells. The size of the red cell mass reflects the balance of red cell production and destruction. The physiologic basis of red cell production and destruction provides an understanding of the mechanisms that can lead to anemia. ...

Bilirubin is formed in the reticuloendothelial system during the degradation of aged erythrocytes. The heme portion from hemoglobin and from other-containing proteins is removed, metabolized to bilirubin, and transported as a complex with serum albumin to the liver. This process accounts for about 80% of bilirubin formed daily.. Other sources of bilirubin include the breakdown of myoglobin and cytochromes and the catabolism of immature red cells in the bone marrow. In the liver, bilirubin is conjugated with glucuronic acid for solubilization to form conjugated or direct bilirubin for subsequent transport through the bile duct into the digestive tract where it is metabolized by bacteria to a group of products collectively known as stercobilinogen.. Total bilirubin is the sum of the conjugated and unconjugated fractions. Pre-hepatic diseases or conditions such as hemolytic disease or liver diseases resulting in impaired entry, transport or conjugation within the liver cause elevation of ...
A team of researchers has discovered that exposing young cells to aged blood causes their gene expression to become akin to aged cells.
Editors Note: In this article, Mr. Nicola Bagalà explains a study that shows aged cells that usually resist reprogramming can be regenerated by reducing the level of Zeb2-NAT without harming the cells developmental potency. This article was originally published by the Life Extension Advocacy Foundation (LEAF).. ~ Kenneth Alum, Director of Publication, U.S. Transhumanist Party, January 28, 2018. Researchers have found that by manipulating a single RNA molecule, they can reverse some aspects of cellular aging and regenerate aged cells.. Old cells resist regeneration. As we grow older, our cells gradually age, leading to the development of various diseases. Therefore, inducing cellular regeneration is one of the approaches that researchers are using to combat the age-related diseases associated with cellular aging. Unfortunately, aged cells are often highly resistant to therapies aimed at inducing regeneration.. Ribonucleic acid (RNA) is responsible for the creation of cellular proteins. ...

Research has revealed that the presence of senescent cells is worse than one might think. These cells assume a special secretory form (SASP) in which they release various chemical signals that harm the health of nearby cells. In a domino effect they then damage their neighbors further accelerating the aging process. A breakthrough study earlier this year showed that using specialized genetic methods to remove senescent cells throughout the lifespan of rats reduced signs of aging in the animals.. The current state of the science review article [is] written by two of the scientists who performed that study. In the paper they describe how senescent cells lead to aging in many tissues in the body. They further point out that aging of tissue is the reason for the development of diseases. Therapeutic intervention in normal aging may prevent comorbidity and delay mortality in the elderly, they write. In this way, targeting of senescent cells during the course of normal aging would be a preventative ...

Tissue macrophages exhibit diverse functions, ranging from the maintenance of tissue homeostasis, including clearance of senescent erythrocytes and cell debris, to modulation of inflammation and immunity. Their contribution to the control of blood-stage malaria remains unclear. Here, we show that in the absence of tissue-resident CD169+ macrophages, Plasmodium berghei ANKA (PbA) infection results in significantly increased parasite sequestration, leading to vascular occlusion and leakage and augmented tissue deposition of the malarial pigment hemozoin. This leads to widespread tissue damage culminating in multiple organ inflammation. Thus, the capacity of CD169+ macrophages to contain the parasite burden and its sequestration into different tissues and to limit infection-induced inflammation is crucial to mitigating Plasmodium infection and pathogenesis ...
Like as the waves make toward the pebbled shore, So do our minutes hasten to their end1 John Milton wrote that he was not yet mature at the age of 23 years.2 Human red cell life is a bit different, with a maturation time of approximately 8 to 9 days, and an in vivo circulation span of approximately 115 days.3,4 Red blood cells can survive for several weeks in liquid storage at 4°C,5 depending on the storage medium,6 and apparently indefinitely when frozen at −80°C.7 In this issue of Anesthesia & Analgesia, Brown et al.8 looked at a single-center database, examining the relationship between the duration of liquid storage of transfused red cells and delirium, after cardiac surgery. Using case controls, their primary outcome measure did not support their hypothesis: they were unable to find a difference in postcardiac surgery delirium between patients who received red cells stored exclusively for 14 days or less and those who received red cells stored exclusively for ,14 days. In their ...
Slight changes in the machinery of a cell determine whether it lives or begins a natural process known as programmed cell death. In many forms of life-from bacteria to humans-a single chemical bond in a protein called cytochrome c can make this call. As long as the bond is intact, the protein transfers electrons needed to produce energy through respiration. When the bond breaks, the protein switches gear and triggers the breakdown of mitochondria, the structures that power the cells activities.. For the first time, scientists have measured exactly how much energy cytochrome c puts into maintaining that bond in a state where its strong enough to endure, but easy enough to break when the cells life span is ending.. They used intense X-rays from two facilities, the Linac Coherent Light Source (LCLS) X-ray free-electron laser and the Stanford Synchrotron Radiation Lightsource (SSRL) at the Department of Energys SLAC National Accelerator Laboratory. The collaboration, led by Edward Solomon, ...
Mechanism of genome replication arrest provides pioneering insight about cell life span and aging.. A research collaboration between the Medical University of South Carolina, the Institute of Human Genetics in France, and Howard Hughes Medical Institute at Rockefeller University has revealed the means by which cells accomplish programmed DNA replication arrest. Their results in the June 13, 2016 issue of the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences describe the conditions that require a replication fork to stop, and in doing so explain why terminator sites on DNA dont always successfully stop a replication fork. It is a matter of different proteins working together to calibrate fork movement.. In a process similar to a rail system in which trains follow a coordinated schedule of stops, cells use programmed fork arrest to halt the replication machinery at predetermined places along the DNA strand called terminator sites. Terminator sites minimize collision between replication machinery ...

We first showed that human FGF19 was stable in mouse blood and its half-time disappearance was further extended by excess FGF19. In the hot only group, there was no meaningful permeation of 125I-FGF19 into brain as seen by multiple-time regression analysis. The initial volume of distribution of 125I-FGF19 remained higher than that of co-administered 131I-albumin. The presence of FGF19 in the cerebral vasculature may allow its binding and activation of BBB endothelia and thus induce CNS function indirectly without crossing the BBB, as seen with adiponectin [19]. Nevertheless, the small portion of FGF19 entering the brain was stable for at least 10 min, so that it could exert direct CNS effects.. The influx of 125I-FGF19 became significant in the presence of excess unlabeled FGF19 or its homolog FGF15 both by multiple-time regression analysis after iv injection and by in-situ brain perfusion. Because of the low level of permeation without an increase of Vi over time, we did not perform capillary ...

CINCINNATI -- The Reds have noticed that the attendance for their annual two-day Redsfest has gotten seemingly bigger each year. Theyve also learned that if they keep expanding convention center space, they will have no shortage of people and events to fill it.

Human gene GC6 is expressed more abundantly in senescent cells than young cells. Isolated, purified, and recombinant nucleic acids and proteins corresponding to the human GC6 gene and its mRNA and protein products, as well as peptides and antibodies corresponding to the GC6 protein can be used to identify senescent cells, distinguish between senescent and young cells, identify agents that alter senescent gene expression generally and GC6 expression specifically; such agents as well as GC6 gene and gene products and products corresponding thereto can be used to prevent and treat diseases and conditions relating to cell senescence.
Cedars-Sinai ALS sesearch shows that aging astrocytes lose the ability to protect motor neurons but replacing old cells With Younger Ones may improve neuron survival.
This does well to show how there is a relation, but I think it needs to be established how it is not an all-encompassing panacea. The destruction of old cells and replacement of them with new ones is good if bad dies and the new are spawned from the good undamaged cells. It is plausible though that good cells could die, and bad cells may be the ones to increase their replication to reproduce them once the cell is anabolic once more.. The main issue is to figure out if there are any preferential regulatory mechanisms in the cell that make the new replacement cells gravitate to be drawn from healthy cells than from unhealthy ones. Im wondering if someone has an idea about this, as I am unfamiliar with the means by which the organelles regenerate their numbers.. ...

Deoxyribonucleic acid synthesis was straight related to cell country and programmed cell death was switched off in the event of cell distributing. Cellular proliferation and programmed cell death was determined under changing growing status. When cells were grown on different sized, square-shaped FN coated islands, programmed cell death declined and DNA synthesis increased with size runing from 75 to 3000µm2. Death rate for different sized islands were measured by TUNEL staining and the consequences were plotted and showed that a larger surface country of the island possessed a better status for cell spreading and growing This was besides observed that by increasing cell distributing on a homogeneous FN coated would take to cell growing when the entire country of cell to ECM fond regard were kept changeless. Under this conditions growing conditions, DNA synthesis increased and programmed cell death decreased with increased in cell spreading. Using substrates coated with specific antibodies to ...
