Regulation of PINK1-Parkin-mediated mitophagy. (7/2649)

Parkinson disease (PD) is a devastating disorder of the nervous system for which no cure exists. Although the exact mechanisms involved in the pathogenesis of PD are unclear, very recently, a novel cellular process has been identified that promises great future potential. Two PD-associated genes have been found to converge on the emerging mitophagy pathway that links the two major cellular dysfunctions implicated in the pathogenesis of PD. Thereby, PINK1 and Parkin physically associate and functionally cooperate to identify and label damaged mitochondria for selective degradation via autophagy. PD-associated mutations in both genes disrupt mitophagy although through different mechanisms, revealing a sequential multistep process. Further key players that tie into this process have been identified and provide the framework for future research aiming at a complete dissection of this neuroprotective pathway. This may not only yield novel targets for therapeutic intervention in PD, but possibly for other neurodegenerative disorders as well.  (+info)

Lungs are a very critical human organ; they are responsible for taking in oxygen and delivering it to the bloodstream. The cells in the body require this oxygen to grow and function effectively. They expand and contract a thousand times every day. During a normal course of the day, an average human being breathes about 25,000 times; but people with lung disease have a problem in breathing.. Lung disease refers to any problem, disorder or diseases including infections which impact the functioning of the lungs; thus, making it difficult to breathe. Lung diseases are a very common medical problem and often treatable. However, in certain cases, they can cause serious complications and could also prove fatal.. Some of the common types of lung diseases and their causes include:. Lung Diseases Affecting the Airways. The windpipe in the body known as trachea, branches into tubes known as bronchi. These tubes, therefore, branch further into smaller tubes throughout the lungs. Some of the problems related ...

In 2016, PQC began discussion of the issue of making the US healthcare system environmentally sustainable. PQC recognizes that hospitals are the most energy heavy users in commercial settings and that according to a major national survey, large hospital systems consume more than 5% of the energy used by all commercial buildings. The importance of reducing the carbon footprint of the healthcare industry was a conversation initiated in 2016. By working together, labor and management can begin to change the way the healthcare system uses resources and ensure a safe environment for future generations. PQC outlined a set of recommendations regarding cogeneration, combined heat and power, continuous commissioning, water efficiency, financing of new technology and of extreme importance retraining curricula for our workforce. PQC recognizes that as healthcare providers and frontline worker, it is not possible to provide preventive health and wellness if the community itself is not a healthy environment. ...
The promyelocytic leukemia gene (PML) critically regulates several cellular functions that oppose tumorigenesis such as oncogene-induced senescence, apoptosis, the response to DNA damage and to viral infections. PML deficiency occurs commonly in a broad spectrum of human cancers through mechanisms that involve its aberrant ubiquitination and degradation. Furthermore, several viruses encode viral proteins that promote viral replication through degradation of PML. These observations suggest that restoration of PML should lead to potent anti-tumor effects or antiviral responses. In this review we will summarize the mechanisms involved in PML degradation with the intent to highlight novel therapeutic strategies to trigger PML restoration.

Proteostasis, a portmanteau of the words protein and homeostasis, is the concept that there are competing and integrated biological pathways within cells that control the biogenesis, folding, trafficking and degradation of proteins present within and outside the cell. The concept of proteostasis maintenance is central to understanding the cause of diseases associated with excessive protein misfolding and degradation leading to loss-of-function phenotypes, as well as aggregation-associated degenerative disorders. Therefore, adapting proteostasis should enable the restoration of proteostasis once its loss leads to pathology. Cellular proteostasis is key to ensuring successful development, healthy aging, resistance to environmental stresses, and to minimize homeostasis perturbations by pathogens such as viruses. Mechanisms by which proteostasis is ensured include regulated protein translation, chaperone assisted protein folding and protein degradation pathways. Adjusting each of these mechanisms to ...

Winters lab, using techniques developed during his post-doc at Dana Farber, took a new approach by linking those small molecules to phthalimide derivatives. The small molecules still bind to the targeted transcription factor, but the linked phthalimide offers advantages: causing immediate degradation of the targeted protein, as well as more-rapid cell death (evidenced by cell chemistry and viability) than in competitive inhibition. Not only did they achieve target protein degradation in cultured human leukemia cells, but the approach also slowed leukemia progression in a mouse engrafted with human leukemia. This made phthalimide-linked small molecules the first such system to induce target-protein degradation in vivo.. Using small molecules to understand and disrupt gene regulation in cancer is an exciting field in truly amazing times to do science, observed Winter. He is convinced that their work on targeted protein degradation will lead to novel drug candidates and be tested in patients ...

Protein quality control systems are essential for the viability and growth of all living organisms. They protect the cell from irreversible protein aggregation. Because the frequency of protein misfolding, which ultimately results in protein aggregation, varies with the environmental conditions, the amount and activity of protein quality systems have to be accurately adapted to the rate of protein misfolding. The main goal of this thesis was to gain detailed molecular insights into the transcriptional and post-translational regulation of these protein quality control networks in the ecologically, medically and industrially important phylum of low GC, Gram-positive bacteria. In these bacteria the core protein quality control systems are under the transcriptional control of the global repressor CtsR. In a first study it was demonstrated that the arginine kinase McsB is not responsible for the regulation of CtsR activity during heat stress, as was concluded by others on the basis of previous in ...

A protein degradation pathway is found at the inner nuclear membrane that is distinct from, but complementary to, endoplasmic-reticulum-associated protein degradation, and which is mediated by the Asi protein complex; a genome-wide library screening of yeast identifies more than 20 substrates of this pathway, which is shown to target mislocalized integral membrane proteins for degradation. The endoplasmic-reticulum-associated protein degradation (ERAD) pathway mediates protein homeostasis in cells by tagging misfolded proteins of the ER with the protein ubiquitin. Ubiquitylated proteins are subsequently degraded within the cytoplasm. The nuclear membrane is continuous with the ER membrane, prompting Michael Knop and colleagues to ask whether protein quality control also operates in the inner nuclear membrane (INM). The authors find that there is a protein degradation pathway at the INM (mediated by the Asi protein complex) that is distinct from, but complementary to, the ERAD. An unbiased screening of a
The N-end rule pathway is a proteolytic system where its recognition components (N-recognins) recognize destabilizing N-terminal residues of short-lived proteins as an important part of specific degrons called N-degrons. like a scaffold E3 that promotes HR6B/UbcH2-reliant ubiquitylation of H2A and H2B however not H3 and H4 via a system distinct from normal polyubiquitylation. The E3 activity of UBR2 in histone ubiquitylation is activated by dipeptides bearing destabilizing N-terminal residues allosterically. Insufficient monoubiquitylation and polyubiquitylation on UBR2-lacking meiotic chromosomes correlate to problems in dual strand break (DSB) restoration along with other meiotic procedures leading to pachytene arrest at stage IV and apoptosis. A few of these features of UBR2 are found in somatic cells where UBR2 is really a chromatin-binding proteins involved in chromatin-associated ubiquitylation upon DNA damage. UBR2-deficient somatic cells show an array of chromosomal abnormalities ...
Regulated intramembrane proteolysis is certainly a central mobile practice included in sign membrane layer and transduction proteins turnover. condition of MHCII-containing endosomes, highlighting SPPL2a as a possible medicinal focus on for using up and/or modulating T cells.

Component of the 20S core proteasome complex involved in the proteolytic degradation of most intracellular proteins. This complex plays numerous essential roles within the cell by associating with different regulatory particles. Associated with two 19S regulatory particles, forms the 26S proteasome and thus participates in the ATP-dependent degradation of ubiquitinated proteins. The 26S proteasome plays a key role in the maintenance of protein homeostasis by removing misfolded or damaged proteins that could impair cellular functions, and by removing proteins whose functions are no longer required. Associated with the PA200 or PA28, the 20S proteasome mediates ubiquitin-independent protein degradation. This type of proteolysis is required in several pathways including spermatogenesis (20S-PA200 complex) or generation of a subset of MHC class I-presented antigenic peptides (20S-PA28 complex).
TY - JOUR. T1 - Modulating cellular balance of Rps3 mono-ubiquitination by both Hel2 E3 ligase and Ubp3 deubiquitinase regulates protein quality control. AU - Jung, Youjin. AU - Kim, Hag Dong. AU - Yang, Hee Woong. AU - Kim, Hye Jin. AU - Jang, Chang Young. AU - Kim, Joon. PY - 2017/11/3. Y1 - 2017/11/3. N2 - When a ribosome complex is stalled during the translation elongation process in eukaryotes, the mono-ubiquitination of Rps3 has recently been shown to be critical to ribosome quality control. We have discovered that the regulatory role of Rps3 mono-ubiquitination is controlled by a deubiquitinase. We also showed that an autophagic signal appears to be coupled to the mono-ubiquitination of Rps3p through the entrance of Ubp3p into the autophagosome in yeasts. The mono-ubiquitination of the Rps3 protein is tightly modulated by reciprocal action between the Hel2p E3 ligase and the Ubp3p deubiquitinase in yeasts and the reciprocal action between the RNF123 E3 ligase and the USP10 deubiquitinase ...
The proteasome is a protein-destroying apparatus involved in many essential cellular functions, such as regulation of cell cycle, cell differentiation, signal transduction pathways, antigen processing for appropriate immune responses, stress signaling, inflammatory responses, and apoptosis. It is capable of degrading a variety of cellular proteins in a rapid and timely fashion and most substrate proteins are modified by ubiquitin before their degradation by the proteasome. The proteasome is a large protein complex consisting of a proteolytic core called the 20S particle and ancillary factors that regulate its activity in various ways. The most common form is the 26S proteasome containing one 20S core particle and two 19S regulatory particles that enable the proteasome to degrade ubiquitinated proteins by an ATP-dependent mechanism. Another form is the immunoproteasome containing two 11S regulatory particles, PA28 alpha and PA28 beta, which are induced by interferon gamma under the conditions of ...

The importance of proteostasis is becoming increasingly apparent as disrupted proteostasis and dysregulation of proteostasis-associated networks has been linked with aging and many age-associated diseases such as Alzheimers, Parkinsons and Huntingtons disorders. In recognition of the importance of this subject, PLOS ONE, alongside PLOS Biology, launched a Call for Papers on the topic of Autophagy and Proteostasis earlier this year. We welcomed a range of submissions that provided insight into the molecular and cellular machinery, and mechanisms that regulate autophagy and the crosstalk of this process with other protein quality control pathways to ensure proteostasis. These studies also underline the importance of all these cellular pathways in pathophysiological conditions and aging.

In their natural environment, cells are regularly exposed to various stress conditions that may lead to protein misfolding, but also in the absence of stress, misfolded proteins occur as the result of mutations or failures during protein synthesis. Since such partially denatured proteins are prone to aggregate, cells have evolved several elaborate quality control systems to deal with these potentially toxic proteins. First, various molecular chaperones will seize the misfolded protein and either attempt to refold the protein or target it for degradation via the ubiquitin-proteasome system. The degradation of misfolded proteins is clearly compartmentalized, so unique degradation pathways exist for misfolded proteins depending on whether their subcellular localization is ER/secretory, mitochondrial, cytosolic or nuclear. Recent studies, mainly in yeast, have shown that the nucleus appears to be particularly active in protein quality control. Thus, specific ubiquitin-protein ligases located in the nucleus,
Nucleolar sequestration of RelA is an important mechanism for regulating NF-κB transcriptional activity. COMMD1(MURR1) facilitated ubiquitination acts as a critical nucleolar targeting signal for RelA, but how this ubiquitination is regulated, and how it differs from cytokine-mediated ubiquitination which causes proteasomal degradation of RelA, is poorly understood. Here we report a novel role for p300 in controlling stimulus specific ubiquitination of RelA, through modulation of COMMD1. We show that p300 is required for stress-mediated ubiquitination and nucleolar translocation of RelA, but that this effect is indirect. We also demonstrate that COMMD1 is acetylated by p300 and that acetylation protects COMMD1 from XIAP-mediated proteosomal degradation. Furthermore, we demonstrate that COMMD1 acetylation is enhanced by aspirin-mediated stress, and that this acetylation is absolutely required for the protein to bind RelA under these conditions. In contrast, TNF has no effect on COMMD1 ...
Body proteins in cats were prelabelled with [14C]valine, and protein degradation was studied in isolated hepatocytes. Amino acids appeared to have a direct inhibitory effect on protein degradation, but the effects were generally smaller than those previously shown in the rat. The amino acid control of protein degradation in the cat differs from that in the rat, as shown by the lack of effects of glutamine, asparagine, arginine or methionine in cat hepatocytes. This may be related to the unique features of protein metabolism of this species. NH4Cl, leupeptin and amino acids, which suppress lysosomal protein degradation by different mechanisms, caused less than 30% inhibition of protein degradation when used at the optimum concentrations reported for the rat. The ability of the lysosomal system to respond to nutritional deprivation is apparently lower in the cat than in the rat.. ...
BAG6 and SGTA function in the quality control of mislocalised proteins (MLPs) by promoting and inhibiting the degradation of such proteins, respectively. Here (p. 3187), Stephen High and colleagues describe, for the first time, an interaction between the C-terminal domain of Rpn13, a proteasome-associated ubiquitin receptor that facilitates delivery of substrates for degradation, and the tetratricopeptide (TPR) domain of SGTA, and investigate the role of that interaction in the quality control of MLPs. Overexpressed SGTA associated with the proteasome and caused an increase in the levels of OP91, an N-terminal fragment of opsin that acts as an MLP. By contrast, overexpression of both SGTA and the C-terminal domain of Rpn13 decreased the proteasomal association of SGTA, and reduced steady-state levels of OP91 and another model MLP, indicating that when SGTA is titrated away from endogenous Rpn13, it can no longer delay the proteasomal degradation of MLPs. The phenomenon was MLP-specific, as Rpn13 ...
Proteolysis was shown to have a significant impact on the accumulation and the final yield of recombinant proteins. Much smaller intracellular concentrations of the proteins SpA and ZZT2 compared to their stable versions SpA-?galactosidase and ZZT0 were explained by their high proteolysis rate. The reduction of proteolysis rate in Clp protease-deficient strain enabled to increase the intracellular ZZT2 concentration two-fold, but impaired the cell growth. A method to calculate a hypothetical accumulation of the product assuming complete stabilization was described, which reveals a potential to increase the productivity by eliminating proteolysis. The effects of scale-up on the production of the ZZT2 protein were investigated in reactors of different configuration and scale: a well-mixed lab-scale bioreactor, an industrial scale 12-m3 bioreactor, and a two-compartment scale-down bioreactor. The production of the recombinant protein ZZT2 was highest in the lab-scale cultivation (50 mg/g), however ...

Translational Activators and Repressors Contribute to LTP. Chenghai Dong, Svitlana V. Bach, Kathryn A. Haynes, and Ashok N. Hegde. (see pages 3171-3182). Cellular levels of a protein are determined by its synthesis and degradation rates, which can be modulated by specific translational activators and repressors and by the activity of the proteasome system. The levels of translational activators and repressors are similarly modulated, adding an extra level of complexity to the regulation of cellular processes such as long-term potentiation (LTP). Inhibiting proteasomal degradation in neurons enhances the early phase (induction) of LTP, but inhibits the late phase (maintenance). Dong et al. propose that these effects stem from proteasomal regulation of translational activators and repressors, respectively. LTP-inducing stimulation initially increased expression of two translational activators, with levels peaking after 45 min. Inhibiting proteasomal degradation before this point increased levels ...

Dipeptidyl-peptidase 3 is an enzyme that in humans is encoded by the DPP3 gene.[5][6]. This gene encodes a protein that is a member of the S9B family in clan SC of the serine proteases. This cytoplasmic protein binds a single zinc ion with its zinc-binding motif (HELLGH) and has post-proline dipeptidyl aminopeptidase activity, cleaving Xaa-Pro dipeptides from the N-termini of proteins. Increased activity of this protein is associated with endometrial and ovarian cancers. Alternate transcriptional splice variants have been characterized.[6]. ...
