Dynorphin A processing enzyme: tissue distribution, isolation, and characterization. (1/1042)

Limited proteolysis of the dynorphin precursor (prodynorphin) at dibasic and monobasic processing sites results in the generation of bioactive dynorphins. In the brain and neurointermediate lobe of the pituitary, prodynorphin is processed to produce alpha and beta neo endorphins, dynorphins (Dyn) A-17 and Dyn A-8, Dyn B-13, and leucine-enkephalin. The formation of Dyn A-8 from Dyn A-17 requires a monobasic cleavage between Ile and Arg. We have identified an enzymatic activity capable of processing at this monobasic site in the rat brain and neurointermediate lobe of the bovine pituitary; this enzyme is designated "dynorphin A-17 processing enzyme." In the rat brain and neurointermediate lobe, a majority of the Dyn A processing enzyme activity is membrane-associated and can be released by treatment with 1% Triton X-100. This enzyme has been purified to apparent homogeneity from the membrane extract of the neurointermediate lobe using preparative iso-electrofocussing in a granulated gel pH 3.5 to 10, FPLC using anion exchange chromatography, and non-denaturing electrophoresis. The Dyn A processing enzyme exhibits a pI of about 5.8 and a molecular mass of about 65 kDa under reducing conditions. The Dyn A processing enzyme is a metalloprotease and has a neutral pH optimum. It exhibits substantial sensitivity to metal chelating agents and thiol agents suggesting that this enzyme is a thiol-sensitive metalloprotease. Specific inhibitors of other metallopeptidases such as enkephalinase [EC 3.4.24.11], the enkephalin generating neutral endopeptidase [EC 3.4.24.15], or NRD convertase do not inhibit the Dyn A processing enzyme activity. In contrast, specific inhibitors of angiotensin converting enzyme inhibit the activity. The purified enzyme is able to process a number of neuropeptides at both monobasic and dibasic sites. These characteristics are consistent with a role for the Dyn A processing enzyme in the processing of Dyn A-17 and other neuropeptides in the brain.  (+info)

Morphine preconditioning attenuates neutrophil activation in rat models of myocardial infarction. (2/1042)

Previous results from our laboratory have suggested that morphine can attenuate neutrophil activation in patients with acute myocardial infarction. To elucidate if morphine preconditioning (PC) has the same effects via activation of neutrophil endopeptidase 24.11 (NEP), we measured serum levels of intercellular adhesion molecule-1 (ICAM-1), gp100MEL14 and NEP in adult Wistar rats subjected to ten different protocols (n = 10 for each) at baseline, immediately after and 2 h after morphine PC. All groups were subjected to 30 min of occlusion and 2 h of reperfusion. Similarly, morphine-induced PC was elicited by 3-min drug infusions (100 micrograms/kg) interspersed with 5-min drug-free periods before the prolonged 30-min occlusion. Infarct size (IS), as a percentage of the area at risk (AAR), was determined by triphenyltetrazolium staining. Pretreatment with morphine increased NEP activities (9.86 +/- 1.98 vs. 5.12 +/- 1.10 nmol/mg protein in control group; p < 0.001). Naloxone (mu-opioid receptor antagonist) (4.82 +/- 1.02 nmol/mg protein) and phosphoramidon (NEP inhibitor) (4.66 +/- 1.00 nmol/mg protein) inhibited morphine-activated NEP, whereas glibenclamide (ATP-sensitive potassium channel antagonist) and chelerythrine (protein kinase C inhibitor) had no effects. The ICAM-1 and gp100MEL14 of the third sampling were lowest for those with morphine PC (280 +/- 30 ng/ml and 2.2 +/- 0.7 micrograms/ml; p < 0.001), but naloxone (372 +/- 38 ng/ml and 3.8 +/- 0.9 micrograms/ml) and phosphoramidon (382 +/- 40 ng/ml and 4.2 +/- 1.1 micrograms/ml) abolished the above phenomenon. IS/AAR were definitely lowest for those with morphine PC (24 +/- 7%; p < 0.05). Morphine preconditioning increases NEP activities to attenuate shedding of gp100MEL14 and to ICAM-1 and, thus, provides myocardial protection.  (+info)

Mechanism of weight gain suppressing effect of ER-40133, an angiotensin I converting enzyme inhibitor, in growing rats. (3/1042)

Effects of ER-40133, an inhibitor of angiotensin converting enzyme (ACE), on weight gain and sodium and potassium balance were studied in growing SD male rats. Thirty-two animals (seven weeks of age) were divided into two groups; one received a standard diet containing 0.227% sodium and the other a low (0.065%) sodium diet. They were divided into four subgroups; one control group and three treated groups receiving 3, 10 or 30 mg/kg of ER-40133, by gavage, once a day for five consecutive days. Body weight gain (average of the standard and low sodium diet groups) was -32% in the 3 mg/kg group,-74% in 10 mg/kg group and -99% in 30 mg/kg group, when compared with the control group. There was a highly linear correlation between suppression of body weight gain and reduction in sodium and potassium retention for both groups of animals given the standard and low sodium diet. The reduced sodium retention, the primary effect of ACE inhibitors, accounted for about 30% of suppressed weight gain, and the reduced potassium retention, the secondary effect of sodium deficiency, could account for the rest about 70% of weight suppression by ER-40133.  (+info)

Identification of kallidin degrading enzymes in the isolated perfused rat heart. (4/1042)

Kallidin (KD) is an important vasoactive kinin whose physiological effects are strongly dependent on its degradation through local kininases. In the present study, we examined the spectrum of these enzymes and their contribution to KD degradation in isolated perfused rat hearts. By inhibiting angiotensin-converting enzyme (ACE), aminopeptidase M (APM) and neutral endopeptidase (NEP) with ramiprilat (0.25 microM), amastatin (40 microM) and phosphoramidon (1 microM), respectively, relative kininase activities were obtained. APM (44%) and ACE (35%) are the main KD degrading enzymes in rat heart; NEP (7%) plays a minor role. A participation of carboxypeptidase N (CPN) could not be found.  (+info)

Interaction between neutral endopeptidase and angiotensin converting enzyme inhibition in rats with myocardial infarction: effects on cardiac hypertrophy and angiotensin and bradykinin peptide levels. (5/1042)

Combined inhibition of neutral endopeptidase 24.11 (NEP) and angiotensin converting enzyme (ACE) is a candidate therapy for hypertension and cardiac failure. Given that NEP and ACE metabolize angiotensin (Ang) and bradykinin (BK) peptides, we investigated the effects of NEP inhibition and combined NEP and ACE inhibition on Ang and BK levels in rats with myocardial infarction. We administered the NEP inhibitor ecadotril (0, 0.1, 1, 10, and 100 mg/kg/day), either alone or together with the ACE inhibitor perindopril (0.2 mg/kg/day) by 12-hourly gavage from day 2 to 28 after infarction. Ecadotril increased urine cyclic GMP and BK-(1-9) excretion. Perindopril potentiated the effect of ecadotril on urine cyclic GMP excretion. Neither perindopril nor ecadotril reduced cardiac hypertrophy when administered separately, whereas the combination of perindopril and 10 or 100 mg/kg/day ecadotril reduced heart weight/body weight ratio by 10%. Administration of ecadotril to perindopril-treated rats decreased plasma Ang-(1-7) levels, increased cardiac BK-(1-9) levels, and increased Ang II levels in plasma, kidney, aorta, and lung. These data demonstrate interactions between the effects of NEP and ACE inhibition on remodeling of the infarcted heart and on Ang and BK peptide levels. Whereas increased cardiac BK-(1-9) levels may contribute to the reduction of cardiac hypertrophy, the reduction in plasma Ang-(1-7) levels and increase in Ang II levels in plasma and tissues may compromise the therapeutic effects of combined NEP/ACE inhibition.  (+info)

A three-dimensional construction of the active site (region 507-749) of human neutral endopeptidase (EC.3.4.24.11). (6/1042)

A three-dimensional model of the 507-749 region of neutral endopeptidase-24.11 (NEP; E.C.3.4.24.11) was constructed integrating the results of secondary structure predictions and sequence homologies with the bacterial endopeptidase thermolysin. Additional data were extracted from the structure of two other metalloproteases, astacin and stromelysin. The resulting model accounts for the main biological properties of NEP and has been used to describe the environment close to the zinc atom defining the catalytic site. The analysis of several thiol inhibitors, complexed in the model active site, revealed the presence of a large hydrophobic pocket at the S1' subsite level. This is supported by the nature of the constitutive amino acids. The computed energies of bound inhibitors correspond with the relative affinities of the stereoisomers of benzofused macrocycle derivatives of thiorphan. The model could be used to facilitate the design of new NEP inhibitors, as illustrated in the paper.  (+info)

Enhanced natriuretic response to neutral endopeptidase inhibition in heart-transplant recipients. (7/1042)

Heart-transplant recipients (Htx) generally present with body fluid and sodium handling abnormalities and hypertension. To investigate whether neutral endopeptidase inhibition (NEP-I) increases endogenous atrial natriuretic peptide (ANP) and enhances natriuresis and diuresis after heart transplantation, ecadotril was given orally to 8 control subjects and 8 matched Htx, and levels of volume-regulating hormones and renal water, electrolyte, and cyclic guanosine monophosphate (cGMP) excretions were monitored for 210 minutes. Baseline plasma ANP, brain natriuretic peptide (BNP), and cGMP were elevated in Htx, but renin and aldosterone, like urinary parameters, did not differ between groups. NEP-I increased plasma ANP (Htx, 20.6+/-2.3 to 33.2+/-5.9 pmol/L, P<0.01; controls, 7.7+/-1. 2 to 10.6+/-2.6 pmol/L) and cGMP, but not BNP. Renin decreased similarly in both groups, whereas aldosterone decreased significantly only in Htx. Enhanced urinary sodium (1650+/-370% versus 450+/-150%, P=0.01), cGMP, and water excretions were observed in Htx and urinary cGMP positively correlated with natriuresis in 6 of the Htx subjects. Consistent with a normal circadian rhythm of blood pressure, without excluding a possible effect of NEP-I, mean systemic blood pressure increased similarly in both groups at the end of the study (6.9+/-2.0% versus 7.4+/-2.8% in controls and Htx). Thus, systemic hypertension, mild renal impairment, and raised plasma ANP levels are possible contributory factors in the enhanced natriuresis and diuresis with NEP-I in Htx. These results support a physiological role for the cardiac hormone after heart transplantation and suggest that long-term studies may be useful to determine the potential of NEP-I in the treatment of sodium retention and water retention after heart transplantation.  (+info)

Kallidin- and bradykinin-degrading pathways in human heart: degradation of kallidin by aminopeptidase M-like activity and bradykinin by neutral endopeptidase. (8/1042)

BACKGROUND: Since kinins kallidin (KD) and bradykinin (BK) appear to have cardioprotective effects ranging from improved hemodynamics to antiproliferative effects, inhibition of kinin-degrading enzymes should potentiate such effects. Indeed, it is believed that this mechanism is partly responsible for the beneficial effects of angiotensin-converting enzyme (ACE) inhibitors. In the heart, enzymes other than ACE may contribute to local degradation of kinins. The purpose of this study was to investigate which enzymes are responsible for the degradation of KD and BK in human heart tissue. METHODS AND RESULTS: Cardiac membranes were prepared from the left ventricles of normal (n=5) and failing (n=10) hearts. The patients had end-stage congestive heart failure as the result of coronary heart disease or idiopathic dilated cardiomyopathy. Heart tissue was incubated with KD or BK in the presence or absence of enzyme inhibitors. We found no difference in the enzymes responsible for kinin metabolism or their activities between normal and failing hearts. Thus KD was mostly converted into BK by the aminopeptidase M-like activity. When BK was used as substrate, it was converted into an inactive metabolite BK-(1-7) mostly (80% to 90%) by the neutral endopeptidase (NEP) activity, with ACE unexpectedly playing only a minor role. The low enzymatic activity of ACE in the cardiac membranes, compared with that of NEP, was not due to chronic ACE inhibitor therapy, because the cardiac ACE activities of patients, whether receiving ACE inhibitors or not, and of normal subjects were all equal. CONCLUSIONS: The present in vitro study shows that in human cardiac membranes, the most critical step in kinin metabolism, that is, inactivation of BK, appears to be mediated mostly by NEP. This observation suggests a role for NEP in the local control of BK concentration in heart tissue. Thus inhibition of cardiac NEP activity could be cardioprotective by elevating the local concentration of BK in the heart.  (+info)

Assay Kits , Alzheimers and Parkinsons Disease , SensoLyte ® 520 Neprilysin Activity Assay Kit *Fluorimetric*; Neprilysin (NEP) is a transmembrane metallopeptidase normally expressed by a variety of tissues. It is also known as neutral endopeptidase, and enkephalinase.

The reactivity of five monoclonal antibodies J5, OKB-cALLA, Nu-N1, Nu-N2 and VIL-A1 against the common acute lymphoblastic leukaemia (common-ALL) antigen (glycoprotein 100, CD10); was investigated by indirect immunofluorescence in cell suspensions, and by immunoperoxidase in cytocentrifuge slides of ALL, chronic B cell lymphoproliferative disorders, and plasma cell dyscrasias. The five monoclonal antibodies gave similar positive results with both techniques only in samples of ALL. J5 was positive in variable degrees by immunofluorescence in the majority of B cell disorders examined but this was not confirmed by immunoperoxidase. OKB-cALLA reacted in a similar way to J5 in both techniques, although with a lower percentage of cells by immunofluorescence. Nu-N1, Nu-N2, and VIL-A1 were mainly negative when tested by both immunofluorescence and immunoperoxidase in B cell disorders other than ALL and therefore seemed to be more specific for the diagnosis of common-ALL.. ...

Transmissible spongiform encephalopathies are characterized by the accumulation of PrPSc, a protease-resistant form of a host-derived protein termed PrPC. Substantial evidence indicates that PrPSc represents an essential component of the infectious agent, which is termed prion. The accumulation of PrPSc within the central nervous system of prion-infected organisms is a dynamic process that is regulated both by production and by clearance of PrPSc. Although several proteases have been implicated in proteolysis of PrPC, the mechanisms underlying proteolysis of PrPSc remain unclear. Here, it was investigated whether neprilysin, a metalloprotease known to degrade extracellular amyloidogenic proteins such as amyloid-β, plays a role in prion pathogenesis in vivo. As neprilysin has a broad substrate specificity and is localized subcellularly in the vicinity of PrP, it represents a plausible candidate for prion degradation. Prions were therefore administered to mice lacking or overexpressing neprilysin in
We have shown previously that NEP expression is decreased in most androgen-independent PCs in vivo, that the NEP gene is transcriptionally activated by androgen, and that androgen withdrawal results in a decrease in NEP transcripts and protein and enzyme activity in androgen-sensitive LNCaP cells (1) . Furthermore, castration of mice implanted with xenografts of the serially transplantable androgen-dependent primary human PC CWR22 (19, 20, 21) leads to a progressive, ,50% decline in tumor NEP enzyme activity over 10 days, whereas the CWR22R androgen-independent subline that regrows lacks NEP expression.4 Taken together, these results suggest a model in which decreased NEP expression is facilitated by the elimination of androgens and consequently contributes to the development of neuropeptide-mediated, androgen-independent PC cell growth by allowing PC cells to use neuropeptides as an alternate source to androgen to stimulate cell proliferation.. In this study, we demonstrate that CpG methylation ...

Although in experimental studies, it was found that omapatrilat increases sodium excretion,16,28⇓ the importance of this natriuretic response has often been downplayed as it was considered a marginal effect documented almost exclusively in heart failure models. One goal of the present study was to compare the natriuresis obtained with omapatrilat with that achieved with an ACE inhibitor/diuretic combination. The choice of the fixed combination was to compare omapatrilat, which combines 2 effects, with one very popular fixed combination that includes an ACE inhibitor. Our results clearly demonstrate that omapatrilat has some natriuretic properties. However, the natriuretic response is not dose-dependent, probably because blood pressure falls with the highest dose of omapatrilat and, hence, blunts the natriuretic effect of the drug. Our data also show that the acute omapatrilat-induced sodium excretion is quantitatively less important than that obtained with FOS/HCTZ. However, over 1 week, the ...

Neprilysin, a zinc-metalloendopeptidase, has important roles in the physiology and pathology of many diseases such as hypertension, cancer and Alzheimers disease. We have developed an immunocapture assay to measure the specific enzyme activity of neprilysin in brain tissue homogenates and cerebrospinal fluid (CSF). The assay uses a neprilysin-specific antibody, previously used in a commercially available ELISA kit, to isolate and immobilise NEP from brain homogenates and CSF, prior to the addition of a fluorogenic peptide substrate (Mca-RPPGFSAFK(Dnp)). This fluorogenic substrate is ordinarily cleaved by multiple enzymes. We have shown that without the immunocapture phase, even under reaction conditions reported to be specific for neprilysin - i.e. in the presence of thiorphan, at pH above 7 - the fluorogenic peptide substrate does not allow neprilysin activity in brain homogenates and CSF to be discriminated from that of other closely related enzymes. The specificity of the immunocapture ...
A summary of the article is shown below:. BACKGROUND: Entresto™ is a new heart failure (HF) therapy that includes the neprilysin (NEP) inhibitor sacubitril. One of the NEP substrates is B-type natriuretic peptide (BNP); its augmentation by NEP inhibition is considered as a possible mechanism for the positive effects of Entresto. We hypothesized that the circulating products of BNP proteolysis by NEP might reflect NEP effect on the metabolism of active BNP. We suggest that NEP-based BNP cleavage at position 17-18 results in BNP ring opening and formation of a novel epitope with C-terminal Arg-17 (BNP-neo17 form). In this study, we use a specific immunoassay to explore BNP-neo17 in a rat model and HF patient plasma.METHODS: We injected BNP into rats, with or without NEP inhibition with sacubitril.

The amyloid cascade hypothesis of Alzheimer's disease (AD) postulates that accumulation in the brain of amyloid |i|β|/i|-peptide (A|i|β|/i|) is the primary trigger for neuronal loss specific to this pathology. In healthy brain, A|i|β|/i| levels are regulated by a dynamic equilibrium between A|i|β|/i| release from the amyloid precursor protein (APP) and its removal by perivascular drainage or by amyloid-degrading enzymes (ADEs). During the last decade, the ADE family was fast growing, and currently it embraces more than 20 members. There are solid data supporting involvement of each of them in A|i|β|/i| clearance but a zinc metallopeptidase neprilysin (NEP) is considered as a major ADE. NEP plays an important role in brain function due to its role in terminating neuropeptide signalling and its decrease during ageing or after such pathologies as hypoxia or ischemia contribute significantly to the development of AD pathology. The recently discovered mechanism of
The distribution of the messenger RNA (mRNA) coding for neprilysin (EC 3.4.24.11) has been studied by in situ hybridization in the adult rat brain.

Circulating soluble neprilysin levels were lower in HFpEF patients compared to controls and there was no association between sNEP levels and NPs, CV remodeling and HF hospitalization in HFpEF patients.
The recent U.S. Food and Drug Administration approval of LCZ696, a combination of sacubitril and valsartan, has generated palpable excitement among heart failure (HF) clinicians (1). Several lines of evidence have pointed to the potential benefits of drugs combining renin-angiotensin-aldosterone system inhibition with enhanced natriuretic peptide activity (2). Neprilysin, a neutral endopeptidase (NEP), degrades endogenous vasoactive peptides, including natriuretic peptides and bradykinin. Neprilysin inhibition results in higher levels of natriuretic peptides, producing vasodilation, sodium excretion, and possible improvement in ventricular remodeling (2). Small trials of LCZ696 in patients with hypertension or HF with preserved ejection fraction demonstrated hemodynamic and neurohormonal effects that were greater than those observed by an angiotensin receptor blocker alone (3)..

The purpose of these studies was to compare the effects of CGS 30440 (CGS), a dual angiotensin-converting enzyme inhibitor (ACEI)/neutral endopeptidase inhibitor (NEPI) to benazepril (BZ), an ACEI, in a model of five-sixths nephrectomy. The doses of BZ and CGS 30440 tested were 6.5 micromol/kg/day and 2.2 micromol/kg/day. Drugs or vehicle (V) were administered subcutaneously for 6 weeks with dosing initiated 1 week after renal mass reduction. At 6 weeks of receiving drug (7 weeks after five-sixths nephrectomy), CGS/6.5 and BZ/6.5 and CGS/2.2 maintained systolic blood pressures (SBP) at presurgical values. BZ/2.2 did not reduce SBP and was similar to the V group. Urinary protein excretion increased ,10-fold in the V-treated group. BZ, at either dose, reduced the proteinuria slightly. CGS/6.5 and CGS/2.2 caused significant (p , 0.05) reductions in proteinuria. Creatinine clearance (Cr(cl)), was reduced by 82% in V, 65 and 61% in the CGS/6.5 and CGS/2.2 groups, and by 69 and 74% in the BZ/6.5 and ...
Background: Previous studies have suggested that both angiotensin II (ANGII) and endothelin-1 (ET-1) may alter cardiac adrenergic inotropic response in heart failure (HF). The increase in natriuretic peptides opposes several neurohormonal pathways, including ANGII and ET-1. We hypothesized that omapatrilat (OMA), a new vasopeptidase inhibitor that provides concomitant inhibition of angiotensin-converting enzyme (ACE) and neutral endopeptidase, may improve adrenergic inotropic responsiveness in HF.. Methods: We studied the effect of OMA (0.04 mg/kg, IV) on left ventricular (LV) relaxation and contractile response to dobutamine (DOB, 6 μg/kg/min, IV) and exercise in 8 chronically instrumented conscious dogs after pacing-induced CHF. LV contractile performance was measured by the slope of LV end-systolic pressure-volume relations.. Results: After HF, OMA produced a significant decrease in the time constant of relaxation (τ, 19.2%, 39.5 ± 2.0 vs 48.9 ± 6.1 msec) and caused increases in the slope ...

Introduction: Ambulatory blood pressure monitoring (ABPM) characterizes 24-h rhythm of BP and is useful in evaluating cardiovascular risk.. Objective: We conducted a randomized double-blind clinical study in Japanese patients with systolic hypertension (SH) to compare LCZ696, a first-in-class angiotensin receptor neprilysin inhibitor, with olmesartan for the effect on 24-h BP profile.. Methods: Patients with mild-to-moderate SH (office systolic BP [SBP] ≥150 to ,180 mmHg) were randomized to receive once-daily LCZ696 200 mg, LCZ696 400 mg (forced-titrated after 1 week on LCZ696 200 mg), or olmesartan 20 mg for 8 weeks. The change in 24-h, daytime, nighttime, and early morning (average of first two hourly means post wake-up) ambulatory SBP, diastolic BP (DBP), and pulse pressure (PP) from baseline to week 8 were assessed in a subset of randomized patients. The reductions in daytime and nighttime ambulatory SBP and DBP were also assessed in dippers and non-dippers.. Results: Of the total 1161 ...

Summary is not available for the mouse gene. This summary is for the human ortholog.] This gene encodes a common acute lymphocytic leukemia antigen that is an important cell surface marker in the diagnosis of human acute lymphocytic leukemia (ALL). This protein is present on leukemic cells of pre-B phenotype, which represent 85% of cases of ALL. This protein is not restricted to leukemic cells, however, and is found on a variety of normal tissues. It is a glycoprotein that is particularly abundant in kidney, where it is present on the brush border of proximal tubules and on glomerular epithelium. The protein is a neutral endopeptidase that cleaves peptides at the amino side of hydrophobic residues and inactivates several peptide hormones including glucagon, enkephalins, substance P, neurotensin, oxytocin, and bradykinin. This gene, which encodes a 100-kD type II transmembrane glycoprotein, exists in a single copy of greater than 45 kb. The 5' untranslated region of this gene is ...
Matrix metalloproteinase-9. For β-amyloid Degradation. The pathological hallmark of Alzheimers disease (AD) is the senile plaques primarily composed of tightly aggregated β-amyloid (Aβ) fibrils. Matrix metalloproteinase-9 (MMP-9) can degrade Aβ fibrils and soluble Aβ, an ability that is not shared by other soluble Aβ degrading enzymes, including endothelin-converting enzyme, insulin-degrading enzyme, and neprilysin (Yan et al. 2006), all of which we had been considering for our circuit. Therefore, using MMP-9 satisfies both those theories that hold fibrillar Aβ senile plaques responsible for AD. This also supports some of the newer ideas that amyloid plaque forms protectively to seal away more soluble Aβ. By expressing it in inactive microglia, we can engender plaque removal without neuroinflammation. To characterise MMP-9, we carried out a β-amyloid degradation assay. MMP-9 is a Zinc II dependent endopeptidase that in humans is encoded by the MMP9 gene. MMP-9 is readily synthesised ...

Axonal polyneuropathies are a frequent cause of progressive disability in the elderly. Common etiologies comprise diabetes mellitus, paraproteinaemia, and inflammatory disorders, but often the underlying causes remain elusive. Late-onset axonal Charcot-Marie-Tooth neuropathy (CMT2) is an autosomal-dominantly inherited condition that manifests in the second half of life and is genetically largely unexplained. We assumed age-dependent penetrance of mutations in a so far unknown gene causing late-onset CMT2. We screened 51 index case subjects with late-onset CMT2 for mutations by whole-exome (WES) and Sanger sequencing and subsequently queried WES repositories for further case subjects carrying mutations in the identified candidate gene. We studied nerve pathology and tissue levels and function of the abnormal protein in order to explore consequences of the mutations. Altogether, we observed heterozygous rare loss-of-function and missense mutations in MME encoding the metalloprotease neprilysin in 19 index
The latter half of Callass career was marked by a number of scandals. Following a performance of Madama Butterfly in Chicago in 1955, Callas was confronted by a process server who handed her papers about a lawsuit brought by Eddy Bagarozy, who claimed he was her agent. Callas was photographed with her mouth turned in a furious snarl.[76] The photo was sent around the world and gave rise to the myth of Callas as a temperamental prima donna and a Tigress. In the same year, just before her debut at the Metropolitan Opera, Time ran a damaging cover story about Callas, with special attention paid to her difficult relationship with her mother and some unpleasant exchanges between the two.[16] In 1957, Callas was starring as Amina in La sonnambula at the Edinburgh International Festival with the forces of La Scala. Her contract was for four performances, but due to the great success of the series, La Scala decided to put on a fifth performance. Callas told the La Scala officials that she was ...

The effects of combined NEP and ACE inhibition on angiotensin and bradykinin peptide levels largely represented the summation of the effects of separate NEP and ACE inhibition. NEP inhibition alone produced diuresis, natriuresis, increased urine cyclic GMP and BK-(1-9) levels, increased Ang II and Ang I levels in plasma and increased Ang I levels in heart. NEP inhibition also decreased BK-(1-7) and BK-(1-9) levels in blood and decreased the BK-(1-7)/BK-(1-9) ratio in urine, blood and heart. ACE inhibition alone reduced Ang II levels in kidney, and increased BK-(1-9) levels in blood, kidney and aorta. ACE inhibition also decreased Ang II/Ang I ratio in plasma, kidney, heart and lung, and decreased BK-(1-7)/BK-(1-9) ratio in blood and kidney. In addition to summation of the effects of separate NEP and ACE inhibition, interaction between the two inhibitors did occur. Perindopril potentiated the effects of ecadotril on diuresis, natriuresis and urine BK-(1-7)/BK-(1-9) ratio, and combined NEP/ACE ...
As a metallopeptidase with a large substrate spectrum neutral endopeptidase (Neprilysin, EC 3.4.24.11, NEP) influences diseases or pathophysiological states as different as hypertonia, Alzheimers disease or pathologic changes of the prostate. In this work the relations of NEP to Alzheimers disease and to two other pathophysiologic changes - an increased alcohol consumption under stress conditions as well as to adiposity/obesity - were examined in detail. Regarding Alzheimers disease the question was addressed why mice and rats do not show a complete Alzheimers pathology. The hydrolytic rate of the murine beta-Amyloid peptide was found to be decreased in contrast to the human form. The hydrolysis was further characterized by biochemistry. These findings were completed by the confirmation that murine abeta peptide does not form amyloid fibrils in contrast to the human peptide. By using the NEP knockout-mouse model in a free-choice drinking paradigm these mice showed an alcohol consumption ...

Calla lilies should perform well in your garden, especially if theyre planted in a shady bed (morning sun is okay, but afternoon shade is a must), in rich, moist soil. Callas thrive on heavy watering so soak the soil every few days to keep it moist. Dont cut the foliage back, but let it yellow on its own. Callas go into a dormant period after blooming so if you water less frequently beginning late summer, the foliage will die back and the roots can rest. New shoots will develop from the crowns of the plants when theyve finished resting ...
SCH 39370 (N-[N-[1-(S)-carboxyl-3-phenylpropyl]-(S)-phenyl-alanyl]-(S)-isoserin e) is a potent and specific inhibitor of neutral metalloendopeptidase (NEP) from rabbit kidney (IC50 = 11.2 +/- 1.9 nM) and is devoid of angiotensin-converting enzyme inhibitory activity at 1 microM. We evaluated the effect of NEP inhibition with SCH 39370 on the inactivation of atrial natriuretic factor (ANF) and on cardiovascular function in rats. SCH 39370 effectively prevented in vitro degradation of ANF (99-126) by a purified rabbit kidney NEP. SCH 39370 (30 mg/kg s.c) significantly delayed the disappearance of immunoreactive (ir) ANF from plasma in rats after an i.v. infusion of ANF (1 microgram/kg/min for 30 min): the plasma ir ANF level at 15 min postinfusion was 1.5 +/- 0.3 ng/ml vs. 0.3 +/- 0.04 ng/ml in the control. SCH 39370 also delayed the disappearance of ir ANF after infusion of the peptide (0.1 microgram/kg/min for 30 min) which increased plasma levels to those observed during volume expansion. This ...

This study has demonstrated that LHN/A, BoNT/A which has been enzymatically treated to remove its native cell receptor binding domain, can be chemically derivatized without loss of endopeptidase activity, conjugated to a second protein (WGA) to form a stable, soluble conjugate, and delivered to a variety of cells in vitro by a ligand-dependent process to inhibit secretion in a dose-dependent manner via a mechanism involving endopeptidase-dependent cleavage of the natural BoNT/A substrate. These data clearly demonstrate that a hybrid protein has been created by chemically conjugating WGA and LHN/A and that this conjugate is biologically active. Replacement of the cell-binding moiety of a number of toxins has been reported previously (4, 27), but this work represents the first reported replacement of the BoNT cell-binding domain to result in the creation of a functional hybrid.. We have demonstrated internalization of functional endopeptidase into three different neuronal cell culture models. PC12 ...

This receptor is expressed by activated, but not by resting, T and B cells. TRAF2 and TRAF5 can interact with this receptor, and mediate the signal transduction that leads to the activation of NF-kappaB. It is a positive regulator of apoptosis, and also has been shown to limit the proliferative potential of autoreactive CD8 effector T cells and protect the body against autoimmunity. Two alternatively spliced transcript variants of this gene encoding distinct isoforms have been reported.[5] ...
The NCLs present with progressive loss of visual function and neurodevelopmental decline, seizure, myoclonic jerks and premature death. The CTSD gene is one of the identified eight genes the deficiency of which is responsible for NCLs.[10] It has been reported that a homozygous single nucleotide duplication in exon 6 could alter the reading frame and causes a premature stop codon at position 255. Over-expression of cathepsin D stimulates tumorigenicity and metastasis as well as initiation of tumor apoptosis. This protease has been regarded an independent marker of poor prognosis in breast cancer being correlated with the incidence of clinical metastasis.[21][22] Knock-out of CTSD gene would cause intestinal necrosis and hemorrhage and increase apoptosis in thymus, indicating that cathepsin D is required in certain epithelial cells for tissue remodeling and renewal.[9] It is also reported that there might be a strong effect for CTSD genotype on Alzheimer disease risk in male.[23] Cathepsin D ...
... was first described in 1976,[16] first purified in 1977,[17] the gene was cloned in 1989,[6] and the first knockout mouse was created in 1996.[18] The function of desmin has been deduced through studies in knockout mice. Desmin is one of the earliest protein markers for muscle tissue in embryogenesis as it is detected in the somites.[12] Although it is present early in the development of muscle cells, it is only expressed at low levels, and increases as the cell nears terminal differentiation. A similar protein, vimentin, is present in higher amounts during embryogenesis while desmin is present in higher amounts after differentiation. This suggests that there may be some interaction between the two in determining muscle cell differentiation. However desmin knockout mice develop normally and only experience defects later in life.[13] Since desmin is expressed at a low level during differentiation another protein may be able to compensate for desmin's function early in development but not ...
