An intracellular signaling system involving the MAP kinase cascades (three-membered protein kinase cascades). Various upstream activators, which act in response to extracellular stimuli, trigger the cascades by activating the first member of a cascade, MAP KINASE KINASE KINASES; (MAPKKKs). Activated MAPKKKs phosphorylate MITOGEN-ACTIVATED PROTEIN KINASE KINASES which in turn phosphorylate the MITOGEN-ACTIVATED PROTEIN KINASES; (MAPKs). The MAPKs then act on various downstream targets to affect gene expression. In mammals, there are several distinct MAP kinase pathways including the ERK (extracellular signal-regulated kinase) pathway, the SAPK/JNK (stress-activated protein kinase/c-jun kinase) pathway, and the p38 kinase pathway.

The intracellular transfer of information (biological activation/inhibition) through a signal pathway. In each signal transduction system, an activation/inhibition signal from a biologically active molecule (hormone, neurotransmitter) is mediated via the coupling of a receptor/enzyme to a second messenger system or to an ion channel. Signal transduction plays an important role in activating cellular functions, cell differentiation, and cell proliferation. Examples of signal transduction systems are the GAMMA-AMINOBUTYRIC ACID-postsynaptic receptor-calcium ion channel system, the receptor-mediated T-cell activation pathway, and the receptor-mediated activation of phospholipases. Those coupled to membrane depolarization or intracellular release of calcium include the receptor-mediated activation of cytotoxic functions in granulocytes and the synaptic potentiation of protein kinase activation. Some signal transduction pathways may be part of larger signal transduction pathways; for example, protein kinase activation is part of the platelet activation signal pathway.

CCAAT/enhancer-binding protein beta is an accessory factor for the glucocorticoid response from the cAMP response element in the rat phosphoenolpyruvate carboxykinase gene promoter. (1/8892)

The cyclic AMP response element (CRE) of the rat phosphoenolpyruvate carboxykinase (PEPCK) gene promoter is required for a complete glucocorticoid response. Proteins known to bind the PEPCK CRE include the CRE-binding protein (CREB) and members of the CCAAT/enhancer-binding protein (C/EBP) family. We took two different approaches to determine which of these proteins provides the accessory factor activity for the glucocorticoid response from the PEPCK CRE. The first strategy involved replacing the CRE of the PEPCK promoter/chloramphenicol acetyltransferase reporter plasmid (pPL32) with a consensus C/EBP-binding sequence. This construct, termed pDeltaCREC/EBP, binds C/EBPalpha and beta but not CREB, yet it confers a nearly complete glucocorticoid response when transiently transfected into H4IIE rat hepatoma cells. These results suggest that one of the C/EBP family members may be the accessory factor. The second strategy involved co-transfecting H4IIE cells with a pPL32 mutant, in which the CRE was replaced with a GAL4-binding sequence (pDeltaCREGAL4), and various GAL4 DNA-binding domain (DBD) fusion protein expression vectors. Although chimeric proteins consisting of the GAL4 DBD fused to either CREB or C/EBPalpha are able to confer an increase in basal transcription, they do not facilitate the glucocorticoid response. In contrast, a fusion protein consisting of the GAL4 DBD and amino acids 1-118 of C/EBPbeta provides a significant glucocorticoid response. Additional GAL4 fusion studies were done to map the minimal domain of C/EBPbeta needed for accessory factor activity to the glucocorticoid response. Chimeric proteins containing amino acid regions 1-84, 52-118, or 85-118 of C/EBPbeta fused to the GAL4 DBD do not mediate a glucocorticoid response. We conclude that the amino terminus of C/EBPbeta contains a multicomponent domain necessary to confer accessory factor activity to the glucocorticoid response from the CRE of the PEPCK gene promoter.  (+info)

p38 but not p44/42 mitogen-activated protein kinase is required for nitric oxide synthase induction mediated by lipopolysaccharide in RAW 264.7 macrophages. (2/8892)

Protein kinase C (PKC)-alpha, -betaI, and -delta are known to be involved in the lipopolysaccharide (LPS)-induced nitric oxide (NO) production in RAW 264.7 macrophages. The role of mitogen-activated protein kinases (MAPK) p44/42 and p38 in the LPS effect was studied further. LPS-mediated NO release and the inducible form of NO synthase expression were inhibited by the p38 inhibitor, SB 203580, but not by the MAPK kinase inhibitor, PD 98059. Ten-minute treatment of cells with LPS resulted in the activation of p44/42 MAPK, p38, and c-Jun NH2-terminal kinase. Marked or slight activation, respectively, of p44/42 MAPK or p38 was also seen after 10-min treatment with 12-O-tetradecanoylphorbol-13-acetate, but c-Jun NH2-terminal kinase activation did not occur. Tyrosine kinase inhibitor, genestein, attenuated the LPS-induced activation of both p44/42 MAPK and p38, whereas the PKC inhibitors, Ro 31-8220 and calphostin C, or long-term treatment with 12-O-tetradecanoylphorbol-13-acetate resulted in inhibition of p44/42 MAPK activation, but had only a slight effect on p38 activation, indicating that LPS-mediated PKC activation resulted in the activation of p44/42 MAPK. Nuclear factor-kappaB (NF-kappaB)-specific DNA-protein-binding activity in the nuclear extracts was enhanced by 10-min, 1-h, or 24-h treatment with LPS. Analysis of the proteins involved in NF-kappaB binding showed translocation of p65 from the cytosol to the nucleus after 10-min treatment with LPS. The onset of NF-kappaB activation correlated with the cytosolic degradation of both inhibitory proteins of NF-kappaB, IkappaB-alpha and IkappaB-beta. IkappaB-alpha was resynthesized rapidly after loss (1-h LPS treatment), whereas IkappaB-beta levels were not restored until after 24-h treatment. SB 203580 but not PD 98059 inhibited the LPS-induced stimulation of NF-kappaB DNA-protein binding. Thus, activation of p38 but not p44/42 MAPK by LPS resulted in the stimulation of NF-kappaB-specific DNA-protein binding and the subsequent expression of inducible form of NO synthase and NO release in RAW 264.7 macrophages.  (+info)

Role of interleukin (IL)-2 receptor beta-chain subdomains and Shc in p38 mitogen-activated protein (MAP) kinase and p54 MAP kinase (stress-activated protein Kinase/c-Jun N-terminal kinase) activation. IL-2-driven proliferation is independent of p38 and p54 MAP kinase activation. (3/8892)

We have shown recently that interleukin (IL)-2 activates the mitogen-activated protein (MAP) kinase family members p38 (HOG1/stress-activated protein kinase II) and p54 (c-Jun N-terminal kinase/stress-activated protein kinase I). Furthermore, the p38 MAP kinase inhibitor SB203580 inhibited IL-2-driven T cell proliferation, suggesting that p38 MAP kinase might be involved in mediating proliferative signals. In this study, using transfected BA/F3 cell lines, it is shown that both the acidic domain and the membrane-proximal serine-rich region of the IL-2Rbeta chain are required for p38 and p54 MAP kinase activation and that, as for p42/44 MAP kinase, this activation requires the Tyr338 residue of the acidic domain, the binding site for Shc. It is well established that the acidic domain of the IL-2Rbeta chain is dispensable for IL-2-driven proliferation, and thus our observations suggest that neither p38 nor p54 MAP kinase activation is required for IL-2-driven proliferation of BA/F3 cells. In addition, the tetravalent guanylhydrazone inhibitor of proinflammatory cytokine production, CNI-1493, can block the activation of p54 and p38 MAP kinases by IL-2 but has no effect on IL-2-driven proliferation of BA/F3 cells, activated primary T cells, or a cytotoxic T cell line. Furthermore, our observations provide evidence for the existence of an additional, unknown target of the p38 MAP kinase inhibitor SB203580, the activation of which is essential for mitogenic signaling by IL-2.  (+info)

On the mechanism of histaminergic inhibition of glutamate release in the rat dentate gyrus. (4/8892)

1. Histaminergic depression of excitatory synaptic transmission in the rat dentate gyrus was investigated using extracellular and whole-cell patch-clamp recording techniques in vitro. 2. Application of histamine (10 microM, 5 min) depressed synaptic transmission in the dentate gyrus for 1 h. This depression was blocked by the selective antagonist of histamine H3 receptors, thioperamide (10 microM). 3. The magnitude of the depression caused by histamine was inversely related to the extracellular Ca2+ concentration. Application of the N-type calcium channel blocker omega-conotoxin (0. 5 or 1 microM) or the P/Q-type calcium channel blocker omega-agatoxin (800 nM) did not prevent depression of synaptic transmission by histamine. 4. The potassium channel blocker 4-aminopyridine (4-AP, 100 microM) enhanced synaptic transmission and reduced the depressant effect of histamine (10 microM). 4-AP reduced the effect of histamine more in 2 mM extracellular calcium than in 4 mM extracellular calcium. 5. Histamine (10 microM) did not affect the amplitude of miniature excitatory postsynaptic currents (mEPSCs) and had only a small effect on their frequency. 6. Histaminergic depression was not blocked by an inhibitor of serine/threonine protein kinases, H7 (100 microM), or by an inhibitor of tyrosine kinases, Lavendustin A (10 microM). 7. Application of adenosine (20 microM) or the adenosine A1 agonist N6-cyclopentyladenosine (CPA, 0.3 microM) completely occluded the effect of histamine (10 microM). 8. We conclude that histamine, acting on histamine H3 receptors, inhibits glutamate release by inhibiting presynaptic calcium entry, via a direct G-protein-mediated inhibition of multiple calcium channels. Histamine H3 receptors and adenosine A1 receptors act upon a common final effector to cause presynaptic inhibition.  (+info)

Effect of inhibition of cholesterol synthetic pathway on the activation of Ras and MAP kinase in mesangial cells. (5/8892)

Intermediary metabolites of cholesterol synthetic pathway are involved in cell proliferation. Lovastatin, an inhibitor of 3-hydroxy-3-methylglutaryl coenzyme A reductase, blocks mevalonate synthesis, and has been shown to inhibit mesangial cell proliferation associated with diverse glomerular diseases. Since inhibition of farnesylation and plasma membrane anchorage of the Ras proteins is one suggested mechanism by which lovastatin prevents cellular proliferation, we investigated the effect of lovastatin and key mevalonate metabolites on the activation of mitogen-activated protein kinase (MAP kinase) and Ras in murine glomerular mesangial cells. The preincubation of mesangial cells with lovastatin inhibited the activation of MAP kinase stimulated by either FBS, PDGF, or EGF. Mevalonic acid and farnesyl-pyrophosphate, but not cholesterol or LDL, significantly prevented lovastatin-induced inhibition of agonist-stimulated MAP kinase. Lovastatin inhibited agonist-induced activation of Ras, and mevalonic acid and farnesylpyrophosphate antagonized this effect. Parallel to the MAP kinase and Ras data, lovastatin suppressed cell growth stimulated by serum, and mevalonic acid and farnesylpyrophosphate prevented lovastatin-mediated inhibition of cellular growth. These results suggest that lovastatin, by inhibiting the synthesis of farnesol, a key isoprenoid metabolite of mevalonate, modulates Ras-mediated cell signaling events associated with mesangial cell proliferation.  (+info)

ATP counteracts the rundown of gap junctional channels of rat ventricular myocytes by promoting protein phosphorylation. (6/8892)

1. The degree of cell-to-cell coupling between ventricular myocytes of neonatal rats appeared well preserved when studied in the perforated version of the patch clamp technique or, in double whole-cell conditions, when ATP was present in the patch pipette solution. In contrast, when ATP was omitted, the amplitude of junctional current rapidly declined (rundown). 2. To examine the mechanism(s) of ATP action, an 'internal perfusion technique' was adapted to dual patch clamp conditions, and reintroduction of ATP partially reversed the rundown of junctional channels. 3. Cell-to-cell communication was not preserved by a non-hydrolysable ATP analogue (5'-adenylimidodiphosphate, AMP-PNP), indicating that the effect most probably did not involve direct interaction of ATP with the channel-forming proteins. 4. An ATP analogue supporting protein phosphorylation but not active transport processes (adenosine 5'-O-(3-thiotriphosphate), ATPgammaS) maintained normal intercellular communication, suggesting that the effect was due to kinase activity rather than to altered intracellular Ca2+. 5. A broad spectrum inhibitor of endogenous serine/threonine protein kinases (H7) reversibly reduced the intercellular coupling. A non-specific exogenous protein phosphatase (alkaline phosphatase) mimicked the effects of ATP deprivation. The non-specific inhibition of endogenous protein phosphatases resulted in the preservation of substantial cell-to-cell communication in ATP-free conditions. 6. The activity of gap junctional channels appears to require both the presence of ATP and protein kinase activity to counteract the tonic activity of endogenous phosphatase(s).  (+info)

Properties of fast endocytosis at hippocampal synapses. (7/8892)

Regulation of synaptic transmission is a widespread means for dynamic alterations in nervous system function. In several cases, this regulation targets vesicular recycling in presynaptic terminals and may result in substantial changes in efficiency of synaptic transmission. Traditionally, experimental accessibility of the synaptic vesicle cycle in central neuronal synapses has been largely limited to the exocytotic side, which can be monitored with electrophysiological responses to neurotransmitter release. Recently, physiological measurements on the endocytotic portion of the cycle have been made possible by the introduction of styryl dyes such as FM1-43 as fluorescent markers for recycling synaptic vesicles. Here we demonstrate the existence of fast endocytosis in hippocampal nerve terminals and derive its kinetics from fluorescence measurements using dyes with varying rates of membrane departitioning. The rapid mode of vesicular retrieval was greatly speeded by exposure to staurosporine or elevated extracellular calcium. The effective time-constant for retrieval can be < 2 seconds under appropriate conditions. Thus, hippocampal synapses capitalize on efficient mechanisms for endocytosis and their vesicular retrieval is subject to modulatory control.  (+info)

Effects of eosinophil granule major basic protein on phosphatidylcholine secretion in rat type II pneumocytes. (8/8892)

Eosinophils are involved in inflammatory diseases such as asthma. We previously reported that activated eosinophils increased the phosphatidylcholine (PC) secretion in primary cultures of rat type II pneumocytes. Increased PC secretion was confirmed to be partly mediated by superoxide anions released from activated eosinophils. However, the influence of eosinophil granule proteins on PC secretion is unknown at present. In this study, we determined whether eosinophil major basic protein (MBP) influences PC secretion. MBP dose dependently increased the PC secretion in rat type II pneumocytes without producing any cell damage. The MBP-induced increase in PC secretion was significantly reduced by preadministration of either H-7, a protein kinase inhibitor, or 1, 2-bis(2-aminophenoxy)ethane-N,N,N',N'-tetraacetic acid-AM, a chelator of intracellular Ca2+, but not by H-89, a protein kinase inhibitor. Our results suggest that the MBP-induced increase in PC secretion may provide mechanical stability and protect against lung atelectasis.  (+info)

The Ras/MEK/ERK and PI3K/Akt/mTor pathways play a central role in the regulation of normal cell growth, division and differentiation. Dysregulation of these signaling pathways driven by oncogenic mutations/activation leading to elevated kinase activity has been demonstrated in many human cancers. Strong evidence suggests the existence of a feedback loop with crosstalk between these two signaling cascades leading to redundancy in survival pathways. Consequently, monotherapy targeting a single cascade may be insufficient to induce tumor cell death due to drug resistance mechanisms. Initial biological results are presented from a series of novel small molecule kinase inhibitors specifically designed to simultaneously target both MEK1 and PI3K. Structural analogs of the ATP-competitive PI3K inhibitor ZSTK474 and the ATP-noncompetitive class of MEK inhibitors PD0325901, respectively, were covalently combined to provide single compound dual inhibitors. Inhibitors showed potent MEK1 inhibition (0.015 , ...
ROS1 is a receptor tyrosine kinase (encoded by the gene ROS1) with structural similarity to the anaplastic lymphoma kinase (ALK) protein; it is encoded by the c-ros oncogene and was first identified in 1986.[7][8][9][10] The exact role of the ROS1 protein in normal development, as well as its normal physiologic ligand, have not been defined.[8] Nonetheless, as gene rearrangement events involving ROS1 have been described in lung and other cancers, and since such tumors have been found to be remarkably responsive to small molecule tyrosine kinase inhibitors, interest in identifying ROS1 rearrangements as a therapeutic target in cancer has been increasing.[7][11] Recently, the small molecule tyrosine kinase inhibitor, crizotinib, was approved for the treatment of patients with metastatic NSCLC whose tumors are ROS1 -positive.[12]. Gene rearrangements involving the ROS1 gene were first detected in glioblastoma tumors and cell lines.[13][14] In 2007 a ROS1 rearrangement was identified in a cell line ...
For glioblastoma (GBM) treatments to be effective in vivo, understanding the effects of the tumor microenvironment is imperative. In traditional cell culture conditions, glucose concentrations do not model physiologic levels, nor the diminished concentrations found in tumor niches. We therefore sought to profile the differences in kinase activity in GBM cells cultured in restricted glucose to identify pathways that could be targeted with small molecule inhibitors. Using the PamStation12 platform, we examined the ability of GBM lysates from cells cultured in standard or low glucose conditions to phosphorylate 144 tyrosine and 144 serine/threonine peptides that correspond to known protein phosphorylation sites. Potential kinase targets were identified and validated using small molecule kinase inhibitors in GBM spheroid cultures. Using results from two GBM patient-derived xenografts, we determined common changes to peptides derived from Phospholipase C, Gamma 1 (PLCG1) and Raf-1. Using PLC and Raf

Background Oligomeric and fibrillar aggregates of the amyloid -peptide (A) have been implicated in the pathogenesis of Alzheimers disease (AD). liter of lifestyle. The technique does not depend on a protein-fusion or -tag and therefore does not need a cleavage response. The purified peptides had been seen as a NMR, circular dichroism, SDS-Web page and size exclusion chromatography, and their aggregation propensities had been assessed by thioflavin T fluorescence and electron microscopy. The info coincide with those reported previously for monomeric, generally unstructured A. ZA3 coexpression furthermore permits the recombinant creation of A(1C42) holding the Arctic PX-478 HCl small molecule kinase inhibitor (Electronic22G) mutation, which in turn causes early onset familial Advertisement. A(1C42)Electronic22G is attained in predominantly monomeric type and suitable, electronic.g., for NMR studies. Bottom line The coexpression of an built aggregation-inhibiting binding proteins presents a novel ...

Long term infection of uterine cervix epithelium with individual papillomavirus (HPV) and constitutive expression of viral oncogenes have been recognized as the main cause of the complex molecular changes leading to transformation of cervical epithelial cells. specific miRNAs and to concur to the deregulation of target genes. Viral encoded circE7 has also demonstrated to overexpress E7 oncoprotein thus contributing to cell transformation. Within this review, we summarize current books in the complicated interplay between miRNAs, lncRNAs, and circRNAs and their function in cervical neoplasia. Baricitinib small molecule kinase inhibitor transcription aspect binding sites in regulatory locations, like the TERT promoter series, have been determined in a substantial small fraction of cervical SCC (14). Epigenetic adjustments, including deregulation of microRNA (miRNA), lengthy nonprotein coding RNA (lncRNA) and round RNA (circRNA) amounts, have shown to try out essential jobs in cell change during ...

N2 - Introduction: Small-molecule tyrosine kinase inhibitors (TKIs) have revolutionized the management of many malignancies. However, they also have been shown to be associated with a certain degree of cardiovascular side effects that are often reversible. Areas covered: As the number of new TKIs continues to grow, it is expected that clinicians will be facing the challenge of early detection and 10 management of these side effects while balancing the risk-benefit ratios of continuing with life-saving cancer therapy medications. This review will present the current knowledge related to incidence and proposed mechanisms of cardiovascular side effects of TKIs and also discuss treatment recommendations when available Expert opinion: We will present and discuss available data and suggest recommendations related to patient monitoring ...
Mouse monoclonal to BLK Keeping track of Package-8 (CCK-8, Beyotime, China) and regular colony development assays had been utilized to measure cell proliferation. Each test was repeated 3-4 moments. For cell routine analysis, cells had been gathered 48 hrs after transfection with indicated plasmids, stained with propidium iodide (PI, Sigma) and assayed utilizing a Beckman Coulter Movement Cytometer (Fullerton). Man BALB/c nude mice (4~6 weeks old) had been purchased from the pet Research Committee from the Institute of KU-0063794 Biology and Cell Biology (Shanghai, China) and housed in the Shandong College or university School of Medication animal facility regarding to protocols accepted by the Shandong College or university Animal Treatment Committee. HepG2.2.15 cells (1107) were transplanted subcutaneously into nude mice. After achieving a size of 0.5 cm, tumors were injected with plasmid (20g/100l) every fourth day for a complete of 3-4 injections. Tumor size was supervised every other time. ...
Steroid hormones take action in the central and peripheral nervous systems to regulate a variety of functions, including development, cell proliferation, cognition and behavior. al., 1994). PR-A and PR-B appear to have distinct functions in reproductive behavior and physiology (Mulac-Jericevic and Conneely, 2004; Mani et al., 2006). In the classic genomic mechanism of steroid action (Number 1), steroid receptors in the absence of hormone are complexed with several chaperone molecules, including heat shock protein (hsp)90 (Pratt et al., 2004). Upon binding hormone, steroid receptors undergo a conformational switch that allow receptors to dimerize (DeMarzo et al., 1991). These triggered receptor dimers bind directly to specific steroid response elements (SREs) and SRE-like sequences in the promoter regions of target genes (Mangelsdorf et al., 1995). Binding of receptors to DNA raises or decreases gene transcription by altering the pace of recruitment of general transcription factors and ...
The anti-epidermal growth factor receptor (EGFR) antibodies cetuximab and panitumumab are used to treat RAS wild-type colorectal cancers (CRCs), but their efficacy is limited by the emergence of acquired drug resistance. After EGFR blockade, about 20% of CRCs develop mutations in the EGFR extracellular domain (ECD) that impair antibody binding and are associated with clinical relapse. We hypothesized that EGFR ECD-resistant variants could be targeted by the recently developed oligoclonal antibody MM-151 that binds multiple regions of the EGFR ECD. MM-151 inhibits EGFR signaling and cell growth in preclinical models, including patient-derived cells carrying mutant EGFR. Upon MM-151 treatment, EGFR ECD mutations decline in circulating cell-free tumor DNA (ctDNA) of CRC patients who previously developed resistance to EGFR blockade. These data provide molecular rationale for the clinical use of MM-151 in patients who become resistant to cetuximab or panitumumab as a result of EGFR ECD mutations. ...
Secondary mutations in the tyrosine kinase domain (TKD) remain the most commonly encountered cause of acquired clinical resistance to small-molecule tyrosine kinase inhibitors (TKI) in human cancer (1-4). Recent pharmaceutical efforts have focused on the development of type II kinase inhibitors, which bind to a relatively nonconserved inactive kinase conformation and exploit an allosteric site adjacent to the ATP-binding pocket as a potential means to increase kinase selectivity, although recent data suggest such efforts may be misguided (5). Commonly, kinase domain (KD) mutations effect resistance to type II inhibitors via two mechanisms: (i) substitution of amino acid positions directly involved in binding inhibitor, or (ii) mutation of residues that stabilize the inactive kinase conformation required for binding (6). Type I inhibitors, which bind to the more conserved active kinase conformation, are typically vulnerable only to mutations at inhibitor contact residues and therefore may be ...
Seattle Genetics recently released data suggesting that tucatinib, when combined with trastuzumab (Herceptin; Genentech) and capecitabine, may effectively treat patients with locally advanced inoperable or metastatic HER2-positive breast cancer who have received prior therapies. In a phase II trial, the drug extended overall survival (OS) and progression-free survival (PFS) compared with trastuzumab and capecitabine alone and provided a PFS benefit in patients with brain metastases.. Patients with HER2-positive breast cancer usually receive trastuzumab and pertuzumab (Perjeta; Genentech) plus a taxane-based chemotherapy first, followed by ado-trastuzumab emtansine (T-DM1, Kadcyla; Genentech) for progressive disease. Once the disease metastasizes, however, effective therapies are lacking, especially for the 30% to 50% of patients who also develop brain lesions.. Highly selective for HER2, tucatinib is a small-molecule tyrosine kinase inhibitor (TKI). In a phase Ib trial, tucatinib plus ...
Imatinib mesylate is a small-molecule tyrosine kinase inhibitor that was initially developed as a 2-phenylaminopyrimidine derivative specific for PDGFR. Imatinib was subsequently found to be a potent inhibitor of ABL kinases, including the BCR-ABL fusion protein generated as a result of the t(9;22) chromosomal translocation (Philadelphia chromosome) found in chronic myelogenous leukemia (CML), and was…. ...
Based on genetic studies that establish the role of spleen tyrosine kinase (Syk) in immune function, inhibitors of this kinase are being investigated as therapeutic agents for inflammatory diseases. Because genetic studies eliminate both adapter functions and kinase activity of Syk, it is difficult to delineate the effect of kinase inhibition alone as would be the goal with small-molecule kinase inhibitors. We tested the hypothesis that specific pharmacological inhibition of Syk activity retains the immunomodulatory potential of Syk genetic deficiency. We report here on the discovery of (4-(3-(2H-1,2,3-triazol-2-yl)phenylamino)-2-((1R,2S)-2-aminocyclohexylamino) pyrimidine-5-carboxamide acetate (P505-15), a highly specific and potent inhibitor of purified Syk (IC50 1-2 nM). In human whole blood, P505-15 potently inhibited B cell antigen receptor-mediated B cell signaling and activation (IC50 0.27 and 0.28 μM, respectively) and Fcε receptor 1-mediated basophil degranulation (IC50 0.15 μM). ...
In a phase I trial, the combination of the BCR-ABL1 inhibitor asciminib and the small-molecule kinase inhibitor imatinib showed preliminary efficacy, safety, and tolerability in patients with chronic myeloid leukemia (CML) resistant to or intolerant of treatment with two or more prior tyrosine kinase inhibitors. These data were presented by Talpaz et al at the 2019 Society of Hematologic Oncology (SOHO) Annual Meeting and published in Clinical Lymphoma, Myeloma & Leukemia.. Methods. A total of 25 patients with chronic phase CML were enrolled in the trial; 15 of the 25 had been treated with more than two prior tyrosine kinase inhibitors and 17 of the 25 had previously been treated with imatinib. Asciminib was administered in continuous 28-day cycles at 40 mg (n = 9), 60 mg (n = 6), or 80 mg (n = 4) once a day or 40 mg twice a day (n = 6) plus imatinib at 400 mg once a day (n = 6).. Efficacy. At data cutoff, treatment was ongoing in 17 patients. Four patients had discontinued treatment due to ...

Using automated microscopy, we screened a library of approximately 16,000 compoun …
Back ground: Insulin-like growth factor-1 receptor (IGF1R) activity is upregulated in a variety of human cancers and IGF1R signaling has been implicated as a mechanism of resistance to various cancer therapies, including radiotherapy, cytotoxic chemotherapy, and targeted molecular therapy. We have demonstrated that IGF1R activation can induce resistance to targeted therapy of head and neck squamous cell carcinomas (HNSCCs) using epidermal growth factor receptor (EGFR) tyrosine kinase inhibitors (TKIs). Targeting the IGF1R by selective small molecule kinase inhibition may thus hold promise as an adjuvant treatment for HNSCC.. Aims: (1) To assess the anti-tumor effects of two IGF1R/insulin receptor TKIs, BMS-754807 and OSI-906, in multiple HNSCC cell lines in vitro. (2) To evaluate the effect of combined IGF1R and EGFR inhibition in HNSCC cell lines in vitro.. Methods: The effect of IGF1R inhibition on cell proliferation, viability, survival, and apoptosis was assessed using alamarBlue, trypan ...
Exquisitely selective turn-on probes of kinase activation and localization Protein kinase-mediated phosphorylation is a vital posttranslational modification in eukaryotic cell signaling. Efforts to understand these complex signaling pathways have been hampered by a lack of selective kinase inhibitors. Nearly all known kinase inhibitors bind in the highly conserved ATP pocket. Although potency is easy to obtain within the ATP-pocket, selectivity is difficult to obtain due to the similar nature of this binding pocket across the kinome. Non-ATP-competitive inhibitors usually possess higher degrees of selectivity than their ATP-competitive counterparts, however, they generally suffer from a lack of potency. In contrast, both high potency and high selectivity can be obtained with bisubstrate inhibitors. Bisubstrate kinase inhibitors interact with both binding pockets; interactions within the ATP pocket provide potency while interactions within the substrate site provide selectivity. Here, we propose ...
The test is intended to be used to identify patients with advanced NSCLC whose tumors harbor mutations in exons 18, 19, 20 and 21 of the EGFR gene, and to select patients for treatment with small molecule tyrosine kinase inhibitors (TKIs) that target EGFR, and where the sample tumour content is low (i.e. less 30%). Sanger sequencing is currently still the method of choice for samples with tumour content of 30% or higher. ...
Most potent protein kinase inhibitors act by competing with ATP to block the phosphotransferase activity of their targets. families encoded by the human genome and major constituents of most intracellular signaling cascades (Manning et al., 2002b),(Manning et al., 2002a). These signaling enzymes play important functions in countless cellular pathways, and the proper regulation of their activity is essential for normal cellular behavior. Aberrant kinase function is usually linked to numerous diseases, and a number of kinases are promising targets for the development of small molecule-based therapies (Cohen and Alessi, 2013). Currently, Ehk1-L a majority of potent and selective kinase inhibitors block phosphotransferase activity by competing with ATP (Zhang et al., 2009). While many of these inhibitors are able to interact with the ATP-binding clefts of kinases in an active conformation, a subset of inhibitors are conformation-selective, in that they only bind to their targets if conserved ...
Chromosomal rearrangements that lead to oncogenic kinase activation are observed in many epithelial cancers. These cancers express activated fusion kinases that drive the initiation and progression of malignancy, and often have a considerable response to small-molecule kinase inhibitors, which valid …
The advent of Gleevec® (imatinib) less than 10 years ago was a landmark for utilizing small molecule compounds as kinase inhibitor drugs (1-3). This type of drug is usually directed against one specific kinase whose malfunctioning plays a key role in the given disease. Generally these drugs are thought to be selective, easy to modify, and effective. As the molecular principles of various diseases are better understood, kinase inhibitors are being developed in various fields with cancer remaining the predominant one (4). Kinase inhibitor compounds constitute about 30% of all drug development programs in the pharmaceutical industry (5).. Kinase inhibitor drugs are typically developed with a targeted and rational strategy, often focusing on a kinase known to be involved in the etiology of a disease. Large libraries of chemical compounds, for example ATP analogs, are screened in vitro against the activity of this kinase, and their effects on a panel of manually selected kinases with similar ...
Siragen Pharmaceuticals, a spin-off from NeuroGeneration, is developing small-molecule kinase inhibitors for the treatment of prostate and hepatic cancers.
Treatment with epidermal development aspect receptor tyrosine kinase inhibitors (EGFR-TKIs), such as for example gefitinib and erlotinib, offers achieved great clinical response prices in sufferers with nonCsmall cell lung malignancies (NSCLCs). without them [1 of 7 (14%) vs 9 of 15 (60%); chi-squared check, p ?=? 0.0449], indicating the harmful correlation between your immune system responses towards the EGFR-T790M-derived epitopes and the current presence of EGFR-T790M mutation in NSCLC sufferers. This finding may be explained with the hypothesis that immune system responses towards the mutated neo-antigens produced Docetaxel (Taxotere) from T790M might avoid the introduction of tumor cell variations using the T790M Docetaxel (Taxotere) level of resistance mutation in NSCLC sufferers during EGFR-TKI treatment. Jointly, our results claim that the discovered T cell epitopes may provide a book immunotherapeutic strategy for avoidance and/or treatment of EGFR-TKI level of resistance with the ...
1qpc: Structural analysis of the lymphocyte-specific kinase Lck in complex with non-selective and Src family selective kinase inhibitors.
DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): Hematologic toxicity is a principal cause of morbidity and mortality after exposure to ionizing radiation (IR). G-Zero Therapeutics, with operations in the Research Triangle Park, North Carolina, has developed a novel approach to mitigating the hematologic toxicity of total body irradiation (TBI). This approach relies on the administration of novel, orally bioavailable small molecule kinase inhibitors around the time of exposure to TBI. These compounds in turn induce pharmacological quiescence (PQ) of the early hematopoietic stem and progenitor cells (HSPC) through the inhibition of cyclin dependent kinases (CDKs) which govern the G1-S transition of the cell cycle. As quiescent cells are resistant to IR, PQ enhances the per cell survival of HSPC by augmenting the repair of DNA damage post-TBI. This enhanced survival of HSPC in turn translates into markedly reduced acute hematologic toxicity. G-Zero has shown in mice that the PQ approach can significantly ...
Supplementary MaterialsData_Sheet_1. addition, in severe midbrain pieces of man Sprague-Dawley rats, we discovered that 6-OHDA decreased the spike rheobase and variety of DA neurons, that have been PA-824 small molecule kinase inhibitor also reversed by pretreatment with 4-PBA and ryanodine. TUNEL staining and MTT assays also showed that 4-PBA and ryanodine obviously alleviated 6-OHDA-induced cell apoptosis and devitalization. Interestingly, a IP3Rs blocker experienced little effect on the above 6-OHDA-induced neurotoxicity in DA neurons. In conclusion, our findings provide evidence of the different tasks of IP3Rs and RyRs in the rules of endogenous Ca2+ homeostasis, neuronal excitability, and viability in DA neurons, and suggest a potential therapeutic strategy for PD by inhibiting the RyRs Ca2+ channels in the ER. model system for study SNc DA neurons (Son et al., 1999). We also investigated cellular excitability in a 6-OHDA-induced PD model in midbrain slices. Our data demonstrated the ...
Olfactory ensheathing cells (OECs) are a type of specialized glial cell currently considered as having a double function in the nervous system: one regenerative, and another immune. OEC cultures resulted in continuous NF-B activation. The IFN-induced increase of iNOS manifestation was reversed in infected OECs. OECs are susceptible to infection, which can suppress their cytotoxic mechanisms in order to survive. We suggest that, in contrast to microglia, OECs might serve as safe focuses on for pneumococci, providing a more stable environment for evasion of the immune system. Olfactory ensheathing cells (OECs) are a type of specialized glial cell that accompany and ensheath the primary olfactory axons through the olfactory pathway, from your olfactory epithelium to Natamycin small molecule kinase inhibitor the olfactory tract. OECs are crucial for olfactory axonal assistance and outgrowth inside the developing and adult olfactory program1,2. This real estate of OECs makes them a superb candidate ...
TY - CHAP. T1 - Targeted Therapies in Chronic Myeloid Leukemia. AU - Jabbour, Elias. AU - Cortes, Jorge. PY - 2015/10/30. Y1 - 2015/10/30. N2 - Until 2000, therapy for chronic myeloid leukemia (CML) was limited to nonspecific agents such as busulfan, hydroxyurea, and interferon-alpha (IFN-a). The landscape changed dramatically with the development of small-molecule tyrosine kinase inhibitors (TKIs) that was shown to potently interfere with the interaction between the BCR-ABL protein and adenosine triphosphate (ATP), blocking cellular proliferation of the malignant clone. Three TKIs are commercially available for the front-line treatment of CML: imatinib, dasatinib, and nilotinib. With the updates of the DASISION and ENESTnd trials, the question often arises as to the optimal choice for front-line management of CP-CML. Based on attainment of faster and higher rates of complete cytogenetic response (CCyR), major molecular response (MMR), and complete molecular response (CMR), and a trend for lower ...
Relapse occurred in 7 (44%) of the 16 patients who stopped tyrosine kinase inhibitor treatment at the time of complete remission, 4 (33%) of the 12 who stopped treatment after additional cycles, and 1 (13%) of the 8 who were still receiving a tyrosine kinase inhibitor. The median time from complete remission to relapse was 7.9 months (range, 3-32 months). Relapse occurred at a previously involved metastatic site in 5 of 12 patients with relapse. Thus, of the 28 patients who stopped tyrosine kinase inhibitor treatment, 17 (61%) remained in complete remission after a median follow-up of 8.5 months (range, 0.3-39.1 months). Tyrosine Kinase Inhibitor Plus Local Treatment. A total of 28 patients (44%) achieved complete remission with a tyrosine kinase inhibitor and local therapy (Fig. 2), consisting of surgery in 22 (79%), radiofrequency ablation in 2 (7%), and radiation therapy in 4 (14%). Most patients received local therapy for pulmonary metastases. The median time from starting tyrosine kinase ...
AZD-0424 is an orally bioavailable small molecule tyrosine kinase inhibitor that targets both Abl and Src kinases with potential antineoplastic activity. Upon oral administration, AZD0424 selectively inhibits both Src and Abl kinase activity which may result in the inhibition of tumor growth in susceptible tumor cells. Src and Abl kinases are upregulated in certain tumor cells and play important roles in tumor cell proliferation and metastasis. Check for active clinical trials or closed clinical trials using this agent.
The transforming growth factor α (TGFα) epidermal growth factor receptor (EGFR) autocrine pathway plays a key role in the development and progression of human epithelial cancers (1). Overexpression of TGFα and/or EGFR has been detected in the majority of human carcinomas, has been associated with resistance to cytotoxic drugs and to hormone therapy, and is generally an indicator of poor prognosis (1). For these reasons, the blockade of the EGFR-driven autocrine pathway has been proposed as a target for anticancer therapy (2). Several pharmacologic approaches have been developed for blocking EGFR. The two most successful approaches for the treatment of cancer patients have been thus far the anti-EGFR-blocking monoclonal antibodies (MAb), such as Cetuximab, and the selective EGFR small molecule tyrosine kinase inhibitors (TKI), such as Gefitinib and Erlotinib (3-5).. Tumor angiogenesis is the process leading to the formation of blood vessels within a tumor and plays a key role in cancer cell ...
HER2/ERBB2-overexpressing breast cancers targeted effectively by the small-molecule kinase inhibitor lapatinib frequently acquire resistance to this drug. In this study, we employed explorative mass spectrometry to profile proteome, kinome, and phosphoproteome changes in an established model of lapatinib resistance to systematically investigate initial inhibitor response and subsequent reprogramming in resistance. The resulting dataset, which collectively contains quantitative data for ,7,800 proteins, ,300 protein kinases, and ,15,000 phosphopeptides, enabled deep insight into signaling recovery and molecular reprogramming upon resistance. Our data-driven approach confirmed previously described mechanisms of resistance (e.g., AXL overexpression and PIK3 reactivation), revealed novel pharmacologically actionable targets, and confirmed the expectation of significant heterogeneity in molecular resistance drivers inducing distinct phenotypic changes. Furthermore, our approach identified an ...
We have developed a deep generative model, generative tensorial reinforcement learning (GENTRL), for de novo small-molecule design. GENTRL optimizes synthetic feasibility, novelty, and biological activity. We used GENTRL to discover potent inhibitors of discoidin domain receptor 1 (DDR1), a kinase target implicated in fibrosis and other diseases, in 21 days. Four compounds were active in biochemical assays, and two were validated in cell-based assays. One lead candidate was tested and demonstrated favorable pharmacokinetics in mice. A machine learning model allows the identification of new small-molecule kinase inhibitors in days.
By Kevin E. Noonan -- Lest anyone think that Myriad Genetics is the only patentee asserting rights in patents having claims to isolated DNA molecules or other biological molecules, St. Judes Childrens Research Hospital, Inc. has sued Novartis Pharmaceuticals Corp. in the Federal District Court, Western District of Tennessee for infringing U.S. Patent Nos. 5,529,925; 5,770,421; and 6,696,548 (see Court Report, October 20, 2013). The grounds for St. Judes infringement allegations are activities by Novartis to research, develop, and evaluate small molecule tyrosine kinase inhibitors, including, but not limited to, LDK378, some of that research having taken place in Memphis,...
Knockdown or genetic deletion of PTEN promotes substantial axon regeneration in an mTOR-dependent manner, both in the optic nerve and in the CST (Park et al., 2008, 2010; K. Liu et al., 2010; Zukor et al., 2013; Du et al., 2015). It has therefore been suggested that the activity of S6K1, an effector of mTOR, is required for regeneration in this paradigm (Yang et al., 2014). Nevertheless, experimental results on this point are conflicting (Hubert et al., 2014; Yang et al., 2014). In our study, we found that decreased phosphorylation of S6K1s substrate, S6, strongly correlates with promotion of neurite outgrowth in primary neurons treated with a variety of small-molecule kinase inhibitors, and that pharmacological inhibition of S6K1 promotes neurite outgrowth in primary neurons. Activation of PI3K/mTOR signaling, in response to the release of S6K1-mediated negative feedback on this pathway, may be driving the induction of neurite outgrowth. Consistent with this, we observed that inhibiting S6K1 ...
Enterotoxigenic (ETEC) diarrheal disease is a worldwide problem that may be addressed by transcutaneous delivery of a vaccine. also be achieved by intravenous injection of the immune sera. Finally, a malaria vaccine antigen, merzoite surface protein 142 administered with CT as the adjuvant, induced both merzoite surface protein antibodies and T-cell responses while conferring protective antitoxin immunity, suggesting that both antiparasitic activity and antidiarrheal activity can be obtained with a single vaccine formulation. Overall, our results demonstrate that relevant colonization factor and antitoxin immunity can be induced by TCI and suggest that an ETEC travelers diarrhea vaccine could be delivered by using a patch. Enterotoxigenic (ETEC) diarrhea is a worldwide problem that is responsible for 400,000 to 800,000 deaths per year (20). It is a primary cause of morbidity and mortality in children less than 5 years old (3, 39) and is a significant cause of Linagliptin small molecule kinase ...

The cortistatins are a group of steroidal alkaloids first isolated in 2006 from the marine sponge Corticium simplex. The cortistatins were first discovered in a search for naturally occurring compounds that inhibit proliferation of human umbilical vein endothelial cells (HUVECs), with cortistatin A being the most potent compound in the class. The Shair group at Harvard along with collaborators have shown that cortistatin A is a highly potent and selective inhibitor of CDK8 and CDK19, the kinases that associate with Mediator complex. Out of 386 kinases evaluated, cortistatin A only inhibited CDK8 and CDK19, revealing that it is among the most selective kinase inhibitors. It was also shown that cortistatin A potently inhibits growth of acute myeloid leukemia cells and AML in two in vivo mouse models. Identification of dominant drug-resistant alleles of CDK8 and CDK19 demonstrate that these kinases mediate the activity of cortistatin A in AML cells. Thus, inhibition of CDK8 and CDK19 is a new ...
Background Several little receptor tyrosine kinase inhibitors (RTKI) have entered medical cancer trials alone and in conjunction with radiotherapy or chemotherapy. cells had been employed. LEADS TO fibroblasts, rays markedly triggered PDGF signaling as recognized by improved PDGFR phosphorylation that was potently inhibited by SU9518. In fibroblast clonogenic assay, SU9518 decreased PDGF activated fibroblast success by 57%. Also, SU9518 potently inhibited fibroblast and endothelial cell proliferation. In the co-culture model, rays of endothelial cells and fibroblast cells considerably activated proliferation of non irradiated fibroblasts and vice versa. Significantly, the RTK inhibitor considerably inhibited this paracrine buy 838818-26-1 radiation-induced fibroblast and endothelial cell activation. Summary Radiation-induced autocrine and paracrine PDGF signaling takes on an important part in fibroblast and endothelial cell proliferation. SU9518, a PDGFR tyrosine kinase inhibitor, decreases ...
TY - JOUR. T1 - An EGFR signature predicts cell line and patient sensitivity to multiple tyrosine kinase inhibitors. AU - Cheng, Chao. AU - Zhao, Yanding. AU - Schaafsma, Evelien. AU - Weng, Yi Lan. AU - Amos, Christopher. PY - 2020/11/1. Y1 - 2020/11/1. N2 - EGFR is an oncogene with a high frequency of activating mutations in nonsmall cell lung cancer (NSCLC). EGFR inhibitors have been FDA-approved for NSCLC and have shown efficacy in patients with certain EGFR mutations. However, only 9% to 26% of these patients achieve objective responses. In our study, we developed an EGFR gene signature based on The Cancer Genome Atlas (TCGA) RNA-seq data of lung adenocarcinoma (LUAD) to direct the preselection of patients for more effective EGFR-targeted therapy. This signature infers baseline EGFR signaling pathway activity (denoted as EGFR score) in tumor samples, which is associated with tumor sensitivity to EGFR inhibitors and other tyrosine kinase inhibitors (TKIs). EGFR score predicted sensitivity of ...
Background: Tyrosine kinase inhibitors (TKIs) have increased survival dramatically for patients with chronic myeloid leukemia (CML), but continuous administration of these drugs may elicit long-term toxicity. Objective: To investigate the incidence of vascular events in patients with CML treated with first-and second-generation TKIs. Design: Retrospective cohort study using nationwide population-based registries. Setting: Sweden. Patients: All patients diagnosed with chronic-phase CML in Sweden from 2002 to 2012 and treated with a TKI, and 5 age- and sex-matched control individuals per patient.

Orally bioavailable compounds that target key intracellular signalling molecules are receiving increasing attention for the treatment of rheumatic diseases. The mitogen activated protein (MAP) kinases are especially attractive because they regulate both cytokine production and cytokine action. The MAP kinases are expressed and activated in rheumatoid arthritis (RA) synovium. Preclinical studies using MAP kinase inhibitors are very effective in animal models of arthritis, supporting their potential utility in human disease. Although the available data suggest a rationale for MAP kinase blockade, development of drugs has been hampered by toxicity and limited efficacy. Alternative strategies, such as targeting other kinases in the cascade or development of allosteric inhibitors have been proposed. These approaches might permit effective use of MAP kinase inhibitors for the treatment of rheumatic and immune-mediated diseases.. ...

Purpose : Protein kinases play an important role in several cell processes such as proliferation, transcription, and pathologic changes. Kinase inhibitors have thus been proposed for treatment against diseases including cancer. In ophthalmology, ROCK inhibitor has already been launched as an antiglaucoma drug in Japan. However, discovery of small molecule inhibitors for specific protein kinases is still challenging. This is because approximately 500 protein kinases exist and more than 2,000 other purine-binding proteins share similar ATP binding pockets of kinases. The purpose of this study was to develop an in silico method for identifying potential kinase inhibitors, and the anticancer drug axitinib was used as a representative kinase inhibitor. Methods : Sequences for 9 typical kinases were compared to VEGFR tyrosine kinase, the three amino acid sequences on the hinge region of each kinase were identified, and the surfaces of the ATP binding cavities in the kinases were analyzed in silico ...
Introduction: Kinase inhibitors have been hailed as a breakthrough in the treatment of cancer. Extensive research is now being devoted to the development of kinase inhibitors as a treatment for many nonmalignant diseases. However, the use of kinase inhibitors in both malignant and nonmalignant diseases is also associated with side effects and the development of resistance. It may be worthwhile to explore whether cell-specific delivery of kinase inhibitors improves therapeutic efficacy and reduces side effects.. Areas covered: This review aims to provide an overview of the preclinical studies performed to examine the specific targeting of kinase inhibitors in vitro and in vivo. It gives an introduction to kinase signaling pathways induced during disease, along with the possible problems associated with their inhibition. It also discusses the studies on specific delivery and shows that altering the specificity of kinase inhibitors by targeting methods improves their effectivity and safety.. Expert ...

Background: Tyrosine kinase inhibitor (TKI)-based therapy is a recommended treatment for patients with chronic myeloid leukemia (CML). However, a considerable group of CML patients do not respond well to the TKI therapy. Challenging to overcome this problem, we tried to discover molecular signatures in gene expression profiles to discriminate the responders and non-responders of TKI therapy. Methods: We collected three microarray datasets of CML patients having total 73 responders and 38 non-responders. Statistical analysis was performed to identify differentially expressed genes (DEGs) as gene signature candidates from integrated microarray datasets. The classification performance of these genes and further selected discriminator gene sets was tested by using random forest and iterative backward variable selection methods. Results: We identified a set of genes including CTBP2, NADK, AZU1, CTSH, FSTL1, and HDLBP showing the highest accuracy more than 69.44 % to classify TKI response in CML ...

Struc tural data of HsHDAC8 pointed out the purpose in the residue D101 in the two substrate and HDACi recognition, HsH DAC8D101A mutated enzyme was inactive on protein sub strates and binding efficiency to hydroxamate inhibitor was decreased.Provided that D101 is localized from the vicinity of T99 of TgHDAC3, these data further strengthen the hypoth esis of a direct inhibition of TgHDAC3 by FR235222 and therefore are steady with a function of T99 in the interactions with cy clopeptide inhibitors. T99A and T99I adjust amino acid polarity, its as a result tempting to speculate that polar inter actions on the rim of the lively web page assistance the binding to HDACis, as proposed by Vannini et al.We predict the binding efficiency of HDACis to TgHDAC3 will be diminished while in the T99A and T99I mutated versions of TgH DAC3. On the other hand, an impact of these mutations within the regula tion and or exercise of TgHDAC3 compensating the decrease in HDAC activity triggered by drug inhibition ...

UNC2250 is a potent and selective Mer Kinase inhibitor. When applied to live cells, UNC2250 inhibited steady-state phosphorylation of endogenous Mer with an IC50 of 9.8 nM and blocked ligand-stimulated activation of a chimeric EGFR-Mer protein. Treatment with UNC2250 also resulted in decreased colony-forming potential in rhabdoid and NSCLC tumor cells, thereby demonstrating functional antitumor activity. The results provide a rationale for further investigation of UNC2250 for therapeutic application in patients with cancer..
