Functional studies by site-directed mutagenesis on the role of Sp1 in the expression of the pyruvate kinase M and aldolase A genes. (1/1157)

During the cell cycle of mitogen stimulated rat thymocytes, an 8-10-fold induction of glycolytic enzymes and a corresponding increase in the mRNA levels has been observed. This prompted us to study the transcriptional regulation of the rat aldolase A and pyruvate kinase M genes. cis-Regulatory elements of both promoters were evaluated by site-directed mutagenesis of promoter/luciferase constructs and transient transfections of rat hepatoma FTO2B cells. Furthermore, the binding proteins were identified by mobility shift assays in the presence of specific antibodies. In the aldolase AH1 promoter, five binding sites for Sp1 and Sp3 and a TPA responsive element were identified as essential for transcriptional regulation. Most of the promoter activity can be attributed to these regulatory elements. In the pyruvate kinase M promoter three out of five binding sites of Sp1 and Sp3 (B box and GC boxes 1 and 3) turned out to be functional in the transfection assays whereas the disruption of GC box 2 had no effect, and the disruption of the GC box 4 had only a minor effect on the promoter activity. Both promoters are stimulated by Sp1 as well as Sp3, as judged by cotransfection experiments of Drosophila SL2 cells. Therefore, the Sp1- and Sp3-directed transcription provides a means for common regulatory mechanism of the aldolase A and the pyruvate kinase M genes.  (+info)

Activities of glucose metabolic enzymes in human preantral follicles: in vitro modulation by follicle-stimulating hormone, luteinizing hormone, epidermal growth factor, insulin-like growth factor I, and transforming growth factor beta1. (2/1157)

Modulation of glucose metabolic capacity of human preantral follicles in vitro by gonadotropins and intraovarian growth factors was evaluated by monitoring the activities of phosphofructokinase (PFK) and pyruvate kinase (PK), two regulatory enzymes of the glycolytic pathway, and malate dehydrogenase (MDH), a key mitochondrial enzyme of the Krebs cycle. Preantral follicles in classes 1 and 2 from premenopausal women were cultured separately in vitro in the absence or presence of FSH, LH, epidermal growth factor (EGF), insulin-like growth factor (IGF-I), or transforming growth factor beta1 (TGFbeta1) for 24 h. Mitochondrial fraction was separated from the cytosolic fraction, and both fractions were used for enzyme assays. FSH and LH significantly stimulated PFK and PK activities in class 1 and 2 follicles; however, a 170-fold increase in MDH activity was noted for class 2 follicles that were exposed to FSH. Although both EGF and TGFbeta1 stimulated glycolytic and Krebs cycle enzymes for class 1 preantral follicles, TGFbeta1 consistently stimulated the activities of both glycolytic enzymes more than that of EGF. IGF-I induced PK and MDH activities in class 1 follicles but negatively influenced PFK activity for class 1 follicles. In general, only gonadotropins consistently stimulated both glycolytic and Krebs cycle enzyme activities several-fold in class 2 follicles. These results suggest that gonadotropins and ovarian growth factors differentially influence follicular energy-producing capacity from glucose. Moreover, gonadotropins may either directly influence glucose metabolism in class 2 preantral follicles or do so indirectly through factors other than the well-known intraovarian growth factors. Because growth factors modulate granulosa cell mitosis and functionality, their role on energy production may be related to specific cellular activities.  (+info)

Oval cell numbers in human chronic liver diseases are directly related to disease severity. (3/1157)

The risk of developing hepatocellular carcinoma is significantly increased in patients with genetic hemochromatosis, alcoholic liver disease, or chronic hepatitis C infection. The precise mechanisms underlying the development of hepatocellular carcinoma in these conditions are not well understood. Stem cells within the liver, termed oval cells, are involved in the pathogenesis of hepatocellular carcinoma in animal models and may be important in the development of hepatocellular carcinoma in human chronic liver diseases. The aims of this study were to determine whether oval cells could be detected in the liver of patients with genetic hemochromatosis, alcoholic liver disease, or chronic hepatitis C, and whether there is a relationship between the severity of the liver disease and the number of oval cells. Oval cells were detected using histology and immunohistochemistry in liver biopsies from patients with genetic hemochromatosis, alcoholic liver disease, or chronic hepatitis C. Oval cells were not observed in normal liver controls. Oval cell numbers increased significantly with the progression of disease severity from mild to severe in each of the diseases studied. We conclude that oval cells are frequently found in subjects with genetic hemochromatosis, alcoholic liver disease, or chronic hepatitis C. There is an association between severity of liver disease and increase in the number of oval cells consistent with the hypothesis that oval cell proliferation is associated with increased risk for development of hepatocellular carcinoma in chronic liver disease.  (+info)

Homogeneous pyruvate kinase isolated from yeast by two different methods is indistinguishable from pyruvate kinase in cell-free extract. (4/1157)

In this report, we have compared homogeneous yeast (Saccharomyces cerevisiae) pyruvate kinase to enzyme from cell-free extracts in several different ways: 1) isoelectric focusing of cell-free extracts indicates one peak of pyruvate kinase activity whose isoelectric point is the same as that of the pure enzyme; 2) antibody prepared to the pure enzyme produces a single, fused precipitin line against enzyme in the cell-free extract and pure enzyme; 3) immunoelectrophoresis of cell-free extract produces one precipitin arc which has the same mobility as that of the pure enzyme; and 4) immunoprecipitation of the pure enzyme from cell-free extract with subsequent solubilization in 1% sodium dodecyl sulfate and electrophoresis on sodium dodecyl sulfate-polyacrylamide gels produces a single protein band attributable to pyruvate kinase which co-migrates with the purified enzyme. Within the limits of the sensitivity of the methods employed, we conclude that the homogeneous pyruvate kinase prepared from yeast lysed either by Manton-Gaulin homogenization (Aust, A., Yun, S.-L., and Suelter, C. (1975) Methods Enzymol. 42, 176-182) or by toluolysis (Yun, S.-L., Aust, A.E., and Suelter, C.H. (1977) J. Biol. Chem. 251, 124-128) is identical with pyruvate kinase in cell-free extract.  (+info)

Effects of vanadium complexes with organic ligands on glucose metabolism: a comparison study in diabetic rats. (5/1157)

1. Vanadium compounds can mimic actions of insulin through alternative signalling pathways. The effects of three organic vanadium compounds were studied in non-ketotic, streptozotocin-diabetic rats: vanadyl acetylacetonate (VAc), vanadyl 3-ethylacetylacetonate (VEt), and bis(maltolato)oxovanadium (VM). A simple inorganic vanadium salt, vanadyl sulphate (VS) was also studied. 2. Oral administration of the three organic vanadium compounds (125 mg vanadium element 1(-1) in drinking fluids) for up to 3 months induced a faster and larger fall in glycemia (VAc being the most potent) than VS. Glucosuria and tolerance to a glucose load were improved accordingly. 3. Activities and mRNA levels of key glycolytic enzymes (glucokinase and L-type pyruvate kinase) which are suppressed in the diabetic liver, were restored by vanadium treatment. The organic forms showed greater efficacy than VS, especially VAc. 4. VAc rats exhibited the highest levels of plasma or tissue vanadium, most likely due to a greater intestinal absorption. However, VAc retained its potency when given as a single i.p. injection to diabetic rats. Moreover, there was no relationship between plasma or tissue vanadium levels and any parameters of glucose homeostasis and hepatic glucose metabolism. Thus, these data suggest that differences in potency between compounds are due to differences in their insulin-like properties. 5. There was no marked toxicity observed on hepatic or renal function. However, diarrhoea occurred in 50% of rats chronically treated with VS, but not in those receiving the organic compounds. 6. In conclusion, organic vanadium compounds, in particular VAc, correct the hyperglycemia and impaired hepatic glycolysis of diabetic rats more safely and potently than VS. This is not simply due to improved intestinal absorption, indicating more potent insulin-like properties.  (+info)

Changes in mitochondrial phosphorylative activity and adenylate energy charge of regenerating rabbit liver. (6/1157)

The changes in the cellular concentrations of ATP, ADP, and AMP and in oxidative phosphorylation of mitochondria were investigated in the remaining liver of partially hepatectomized rabbits. The energy charge (defined as half of the average number of anhydride-bonded phosphate groups per adenosine moiety) of the liver remnant decreased from 0.866 to 0.767 (p less than 0.01) within 24 hr after hepatectomy, and then increased to a substantially higher level than normal within 7 days. On the other hand, the mitochondrial phosphyorylative activity increased rapidly to 170 per cent of the control within 12 hr and then retruned to normal within 7 days. The mitochondrial phosphorylative activity was inversely correlated with energy charge of the liver remnant (r = -0.75, p less less than 0.01). The maximal enhancement of mitochondrial phosphorylative activity was found in mitochondria obtained from the liver remnant with the lowest level of energy charge, suggesting a response of mitochondria in vivo involving enhanced biosynthetic ATP-utilizing reactions at an early stage of the regenerating process. The enhancement of phosphorylative activity was accompanied by a rise in the respiratory control ratio, P/O ratio and state 3 respiration. The adenylate kinase [EC 2.7.4.3] activity in the liver remnant increased to more than 160% of the control within 2 days after partial hepatectomy, while the pyruvate kinase [EC 2.7.1.40] activity decreased remarkably. However, the changes in the two enzyme activities did not correlate with those of mitochondrial phosphorylative activity or the energy charge of the liver remnant.  (+info)

Studies on the kinetic effects of adenosine-3':5'-monophosphate-dependent phosphorylation of purified pig-liver pyruvate kinase type L. (7/1157)

The effect of cyclic-AMP-dependent phosphorylation on the activity of isolated pig liver pyruvate kinase was studied. It was found that the major kinetic effect of the phosphorylation was to reduce the affinity for the substrate phosphoenolpyruvate, K0.5 for this substrate increasing from 0.3 to 0.9 mM upon phosphorylation. The cooperative effect with phosphoenolpyruvate was enhanced, the Hill constant nH increasing concomitantly from 1.1 to 1.5. V was unaltered. The change in activity occurred in parallel with the phosphate incorporation, except during the initial part of the reaction, when inactivation was correspondingly slower. The affinity for the second substrate ADP was unchanged, with an apparent Km of 0.3 mM at saturating concentration of phosphoenolpyruvate. Likewise, the requirement for potassium was unaffected, whereas the phosphoenzyme required a higher concentration of magnesium ions for maximal activity, compared with the control enzyme. The inhibitory effect of the phosphorylation was counteracted by positive effectors, fructose 1,6-biphosphate in micromolar concentrations completely activated the phosphoenzyme, resulting in an enzyme with properties similar to the fructose 1,6-biphosphate-activated unphosphorylated enzyme, with K0.5 for phosphoenolpyruvate about 0.025 mM and with a Hill constant of 1.1. Hydrogen ions were also effective in activating the phosphoenzyme. Thus, when pH was lowered from 8 to 6.5 the inhibition due to phosphorylation was abolished. The phosphoenzyme was sensitive to further inhibition by negative effectors such as ATP and alanine. 2 mM ATP increased K0.5 for phosphoenolpyruvate to 1.5 mM and nH to 2.3. The corresponding values with alanine were 1.3 mM and 1.9. Phosphorylation is thought to be an additional mechanism of inhibition of the enzyme under gluconeogenetic conditions.  (+info)

Transgenic inhibitors identify two roles for protein kinase A in Drosophila development. (8/1157)

We have initiated an analysis of protein kinase A (PKA) in Drosophila using transgenic techniques to modulate PKA activity in specific tissues during development. We have constructed GAL4/UAS-regulated transgenes in active and mutant forms that encode PKAc, the catalytic subunit of PKA, and PKI(1-31), a competitive inhibitor of PKAc. We present evidence that the wild-type transgenes are active and summarize the phenotypes produced by a number of GAL4 enhancer-detector strains. We compare the effects of transgenes encoding PKI(1-31) with those encoding PKAr*, a mutant regulatory subunit that constitutively inhibits PKAc because of its inability to bind cyclic AMP. Both inhibitors block larval growth, but only PKAr* alters pattern formation by activating the Hedgehog signaling pathway. Therefore, transgenic PKI(1-31) should provide a tool to investigate the role of PKAc in larval growth regulation without concomitant changes in pattern formation. The different effects of PKI(1-31) and PKAr* suggest two distinct roles, cytoplasmic and nuclear, for PKAc in Hedgehog signal transduction. Alternatively, PKAr* may target proteins other than PKAc, suggesting a role for free PKAr in signal transduction, a role inhibited by PKAc in reversal of the classical relationship of these subunits.  (+info)

Approach and Results-We identified a large number of JmjC domain-containing proteins regulated by endothelial differentiation of murine embryonic stem cells. Among the family of JmjC domain-only proteins, Jmjd8 was significantly upregulated on endothelial differentiation. Knockdown of Jmjd8 in ECs significantly decreased in vitro network formation and sprouting in the spheroid assay. JMJD8 is exclusively detectable in the cytoplasm, excluding a function as a histone-modifying enzyme. Mass spectrometry analysis revealed JMJD8-interacting proteins with known functions in cellular metabolism like pyruvate kinase M2. Accordingly, knockdown of pyruvate kinase M2 in human umbilical vein ECs decreased endothelial sprouting in the spheroid assay. Knockdown of JMJD8 caused a reduction of EC metabolism as measured by Seahorse Bioscience extracellular flux analysis. Conversely, overexpression of JMJD8 enhanced cellular oxygen consumption rate of ECs, reflecting an increased mitochondrial respiration. ...
Urs Giger. Anemia is one of the most common clinical signs and abnormal laboratory test results in companion animals. Although acquired conditions such as infections, immune disorders, intoxications, blood loss and chronic organ failures represent the main causes of anemia, hereditary blood diseases leading to anemia are also important in clinical practice. Several hereditary erythrocyte defects have been reported in cats and a molecular basis of the erythrocyte pyruvate kinase defect has recently been determined.. Pyruvate kinase is a key regulatory enzyme in the metabolism of sugar. Its deficiency leads to a lack of energy production and thus, an instability of erythrocyte blood cells. This will then result in anemia. PK deficient cats typically have intermittent anemia. The age of onset is quite variable and may depend on environmental factors. The youngest affected cat diagnosed with anemia was 6 months of age and the oldest affected cat was 12 years old and was only found based on screening ...

Intact rats trained on a controlled feeding and lighting schedule designated 8+16 exhibited diurnal oscillations in liver weight, glucokinase activity and liver glycogen content. Glucokinase activity expressed as units/g of liver decreased to 30% of that from unoperated controls during the first 48h after partial hepatectomy and returned to near normal values in 2 weeks. When the glucokinase activity was expressed as units/liver per 100g body wt., a decrease to 50% of control activity was observed between 24 and 48h after the operation. A similar pattern was found for pyruvate kinase type I. In contrast, pyruvate kinase type III activity increased after partial hepatectomy. It is suggested that the newly divided cells after partial hepatectomy do not synthesize glucokinase and pyruvate kinase I but do synthesize pyruvate kinase III. Glycogen was found to accumulate as early as 24h after partial hepatectomy, and normal concentrations were reached after 48h if the operation was performed at ...
Pyruvate kinase is the enzyme that catalyzes the final step of glycolysis. It catalyzes the transfer of a phosphate group from phosphoenolpyruvate (PEP) to adenosine diphosphate (ADP), yielding one molecule of pyruvate and one molecule of ATP. Pyruvate kinase is present in four distinct, tissue-specific isozymes in animals, each consisting of particular kinetic properties necessary to accommodate the variations in metabolic requirements of diverse tissues. There are four isozymes of pyruvate kinase in vertebrates: L (liver), R (erythrocytes), M1(muscles, hearts and brain) and M2 (only form detectable in early fetal tissue and present in most adult tissues). R and L isozymes differ from M1 and M2 in that they are both exclusively allosterically and reversibly regulated. From a kinetic standpoint, the R and L isozymes of pyruvate kinase have two key conformation states; one with a high substrate affinity and one with a low substrate affinity. The R-state, characterized by high substrate affinity, ...
Macrophages activated by the TLR4 agonist LPS undergo dramatic changes in their metabolic activity. We here show that LPS induces expression of the key metabolic regulator Pyruvate Kinase M2 (PKM2). Activation of PKM2 using two well-characterized small molecules, DASA-58 and TEPP-46, inhibited LPS-induced Hif-1α and IL-1β, as well as the expression of a range of other Hif-1α-dependent genes. Activation of PKM2 attenuated an LPS-induced proinflammatory M1 macrophage phenotype while promoting traits typical of an M2 macrophage. We show that LPS-induced PKM2 enters into a complex with Hif-1α, which can directly bind to the IL-1β promoter, an event that is inhibited by activation of PKM2. Both compounds inhibited LPS-induced glycolytic reprogramming and succinate production. Finally, activation of PKM2 by TEPP-46 in vivo inhibited LPS and Salmonella typhimurium-induced IL-1β production, while boosting production of IL-10. PKM2 is therefore a critical determinant of macrophage activation by ...

With these constructions, we were able to study the role of these isoenzymes in pyruvate biosynthesis. ...
Different pyruvate kinase isoforms are expressed in a tissue-specific manner, with pyruvate kinase M2 (PKM2) suggested to be the predominant isoform in proliferating cells and cancer cells. Due to differential regulation of enzymatic activities, PKM2 but not PKM1 has been thought to favor cell proliferation. However, the role of PKM2 in tumorigenesis has been recently challenged. Here we report that increased glucose catabolism through glycolysis and increased pyruvate kinase activity in c-MYC-driven liver tumors are associated with increased expression of both PKM1 and PKM2 isoforms and decreased expression of the liver-specific isoform of pyruvate kinase, PKL. Depletion of PKM2 at the time of c-MYC over-expression in murine livers did not affect c-MYC induced tumorigenesis and resulted in liver tumor formation with decreased pyruvate kinase activity and decreased catabolism of glucose into alanine and the Krebs cycle. An increased PKM1/PKM2 ratio by ectopic PKM1 expression further decreased ...

Abstract: Together with an increase in the total activity of pyruvate kinase, alterations in the isoenzyme spectrum were observed in hepatocarcinogenesis caused by treatment of rats with diethylinitrosamine. The alterations might be divided into two steps: initial, reversible changes and changes immediately related to development of the blastomatous process. The total activity of pyruvate kinase was gradually increased with appearance of hyperplastic symptoms as well as of primary tumoral foci in liver tissue. The M2-type of pyruvate kinase tended to exhibit activation. In primary hepatomas the L-type of the enzyme was decreased and activity of the M2-type was increased ...
Emerging studies have identified microRNAs as possible therapeutic tools for the treatment of glioma, the most aggressive brain tumor. Their important targets in this tumor are not well understood. We recently found that the Notch pathway is a target of microRNA-326. Ectopic expression of microRNA-326 in glioma and glioma stem cells induced their apoptosis and reduced their metabolic activity. Computational target gene prediction revealed pyruvate kinase type M2 (PKM2) as another target of microRNA-326. PKM2 has recently been shown to play a key role in cancer cell metabolism. To investigate whether it might be a functionally important target of miR-326, we used RNA interference to knock down PKM2 expression in glioma cells. Transfection of established glioma and glioma stem cells with PKM2 siRNA reduced their growth, cellular invasion, metabolic activity with decreased ATP and glutathione levels, and activated AMP-activated protein kinase. The cytotoxic effects exhibited by PKM2 knockdown in ...
Although multiple available siRNA design algorithms did not predict any sequences within alternative exon 10 that would mediate robust silencing, we have identified multiple siRNAs that afford potent and specific silencing of the M2 isoform of pyruvate kinase. An inspection of the 10 top performing sequences reveals that the number of mismatches between the M1 and M2 isoforms ranges from 4 to 13. 5 of these 10 sequences contain mismatches at one of the critical central positions 10 or 11, which have been shown to be important in conferring specificity (Wang et al., 2008b). We observed one hot spot: two of the top three siRNAs target consecutive 19-mers (si155 and si156). We also observed one warm spot: three siRNAs work moderately well over a sequence that spans 23 nucleotides (si83, si85, and si87).. Recent analysis of transcriptomes indicates that ,90% of all human genes are expressed as alternatively spliced isoforms (Wang et al., 2008a). The ability to target one isoform of a gene ...

In contrast to the case in liver and skeletal muscle, the role of AMPK in β-cell functions is less clear. Glucose stimulation of β-cells has been associated with a reduction in the AMP/ATP ratio and decreased AMPK activity (28). Activation of AMPK by 5-aminoimidazole-4-carboxamide-1-β-d-ribofuranoside (AICAR) at 200 μmol/l was reported to inhibit glucose-stimulated upregulation of liver-type pyruvate kinase (L-PK) promoter activity and pre-proinsulin promoter activity in MIN6 cells (29). Regarding insulin secretion, diverse effects have been observed with 1 mmol/l AICAR; it acutely (within 5 min) enhances 10 mmol/l glucose-stimulated insulin secretion, but inhibits it in the later phase by ∼50% (28). The effect of AICAR on insulin secretion may also be affected by glucose concentrations. Thus, in the presence of 1 mmol/l AICAR, insulin secretion was inhibited by a high glucose concentration, whereas it was enhanced by a low glucose concentration in rat islets (28). The effects of AICAR ...
There were no significant differences in sex, plasma ferritin level, use of pre-transplant chelation therapy, transfusion burden in the 12 months prior to HSCT, adapted EBMT-score, conditioning regimen, relation to donor, graft type, donor-recipient sex combination, or transplant source.. In conclusion, herein we discuss the first global study on the outcome of all patients known to have undergone HSCT in PKD. Since guidelines for HSCT in PKD are lacking, this report may be a helpful first step toward future protocols. Compared to published survival rates for other forms of hereditary anemias, cohorts that are otherwise comparable in age, time period and transplant hospital, the overall survival rate after HSCT in PKD is relatively low.11-13 The present analysis of all 16 PKD patients known to be transplanted to date showed a three-year overall survival of 65%. Significantly better survival was observed for patients transplanted before the age of ten. A negative effect of age on survival is also ...

Lara had two healthy, big litters of kittens and Bertta one litter of three. They have never been sick in their life. They are both screened negatives for HCM and any other heart conditions, they are big, strong, good mothers, wonderful temperaments, they have multiple titles both in FIFE and TICA. Bertta is full adult whited. They were perfect breeding cats and still are perfect pets. And then came this. About 6 weeks ago I had never heard about PK-def, or didin´t know what it really is. Now I know more than I ever wanted ...
Thats really interesting, thanks for posting. Its especially interesting how it can be mistaken for FIP. I dont know if its just because I come into contact with more Bengal owners over time, but it does seem to me that FIP-like symptoms are being reported more regularly and I have been wondering if they are all FIP or not. Tragically it probably doesnt change the outcome for the poor owner but knowledge is vital for future generations ...
The objective of the present work consisted on determining the effects of PTS and Pyk isozymes inactivation on cell physiology, metabolic flux distribution and PEP availability for aromatics biosynthesis. The inactivation of PTS in E. coli abolishes PEP-dependent glucose transport; therefore PYR production from PEP is dependent only on Pyk isozyme activities. In this study, by inactivating each Pyk isozyme in a PTS- glc+ background, strains were generated where the PEP to PYR reaction was dependent only on PykA or PykF activity. These strains were characterized by flux analysis, thus providing the first quantitative description of the metabolic consequences of the sequential elimination of activities catalyzing the PEP to PYR reaction.. The inactivation of PTS in E. coli causes a strong reduction in qGlc and μ, therefore, such mutant strains display a PTS- glc- phenotype. To improve qGlc and μ, strain VH33 has a chromosomal modification that increases its capacity for non PTS-dependent glucose ...
Pyruvate kinase (PK), an important glycolytic enzyme that catalyzes the final step of glycolysis through an irreversible mechanism to produce energy for the cell, contains nine cysteines, some of which are highly reactive and critical for function. This research sought to develop a protocol to measure quantitatively the functionality of PK under different experimental conditions. Using a three stage, consistent procedure, it was possible to analyze the effects of thiol modification by Ellmans Reagent (DTNB) and oxidation by hypochlorous acid (HOCl) on PK activity. Results showed that both DTNB and HOCl inhibited activity at high concentrations, which illustrates that some cysteines are essential for PK to catalyze its reaction. Furthermore, analysis of cysteine labeling with 5-iodoacetamidofluorescein on SDS-PAGE demonstrates that not all cysteines must be modified to see inhibitory effects. Additionally, incubation studies with ATP and fructose-1,6-bisphosphate, known regulators with different binding

Although Agios is involved in some relatively early stage work on pyruvate kinase deficiency -- a genetic disorder that affects red blood cells ability to carry oxygen -- its the companys oncology platform thats most exciting. Specifically, Agios work with IDH mutant inhibitors is what has me, and Wall Street, excited. Normal IDH enzymes help to generate energy for cells by breaking down nutrients; however, mutant IDH creates a molecule that fails to mature and tends to proliferate rapidly. Thus, Agios approach of inhibiting this mutant form of IDH (IDH1 and IDH2) is believed to have anti-cancer effects.. Agios work is so exciting it got the attention of Celgene (NASDAQ:CELG) years ago, with Celgene eventually licensing the rights to IDH2 mutant inhibitor AG-221, and IDH1 mutant inhibitor AG-120. At the American Society of Hematologys annual meeting in December, Agios announced that AG-221 generated an evaluable response in 37% of patients with relapsed or refractory acute myeloid ...
Blocking interaction of the immune checkpoint receptor PD-1 with its ligand PD-L1 is associated with good clinical outcomes in a broad variety of malignancies. High levels of PD-L1 promote tumour growth by restraining CD8+ T-cell responses against tumors. Limiting PD-L1 expression and function is therefore critical for allowing the development of anti-tumour immune responses and effective tumour clearance. PKM2 is also a key player in regulating cancer as well as immune responses. PKM2 catalyzes the final rate-limiting step of glycolysis. Furthermore PKM2 as a dimer translocates to the nucleus, where it stimulates Hif-1α transactivation domain function and recruitment of p300 to the Hif-1α response elements (HRE) of Hif-1α target genes. Here, we provide the first evidence of a role for PKM2 in regulating the expression of PD-L1 on macrophages, dendritic cells (DCs), T cells and tumour cells. LPS-induced expression of PD-L1 in primary macrophages was inhibited by the PKM2 targeting compound TEPP-46.

Deficiencies in the enzyme pyruvate kinase (PK), the key rate-limiting step in the glycolytic metabolic pathway, might protect some humans against infections by Plasmodium falciparum, the main parasite responsible for causing malaria, according to Philippe Gros of McGill University in Montreal, Quebec, Canada, and his collaborators. Mitochondria are absent from red blood cells, a major host target for such parasites. Hence, defects in host glycolysis, while problematic to humans carrying traits affecting this metabolic pathway, also could prove detrimental to P. falciparum parasites within those cells and, thus, could partly protect such individuals against malaria, the Canadian researchers say. Meanwhile, for those individuals who are heterozygous, although the parasites are only partly blocked when invading such cells, protective phagocytosis of parasites is enhanced-making this host situation

N2 - JMJD5, a Jumonji C domain-containing dioxygenase, is important for embryonic development and cancer growth. Here, we show that JMJD5 is up-regulated by hypoxia and is crucial for hypoxiainduced cell proliferation. JMJD5 interacts directly with pyruvate kinase muscle isozyme (PKM)2 to modulate metabolic flux in cancer cells. The JMJD5-PKM2 interaction resides at the intersubunit interface region of PKM2, which hinders PKM2 tetramerization and blocks pyruvate kinase activity. This interaction also influences translocation of PKM2 into the nucleus and promotes hypoxiainducible factor (HIF)-1α-mediated transactivation. JMJD5 ...

The major research objective of our laboratory is to understand the biochemical and genetic basis for cell growth regulation by growth factors and hormones. Research from our laboratory has led to the elucidation of a pathway by which growth factors stimulate nutrient uptake and cellular metabolism, leading to increased cell growth and cell survival. Defects in homeostatic control of this signaling network can lead to cancers or to diabetes or metabolic disease. A central node in this network is the enzyme phosphoinositide 3-kinase. In order to explore the in vivo role of this network we are generating mice in which components of the network can be switched on or off to determine their effects on cancers and other diseases References: Manning BD, Cantley LC.

During pregnancy, many women experience remission of autoimmune diseases like multiple sclerosis and uveitis. Now, scientists have described a biological mechanism responsible for changes in the immune system that helps to explain the remission.. The expression of an enzyme known as pyruvate kinase is reduced in immune cells in pregnant women compared to non-pregnant women, according to Howard R. Petty, Ph.D., biophysicist at the University of Michigan Kellogg Eye Center and Roberto Romero, M.D., of the National Institutes for Health.. The study, which appears online ahead of print in the August issue of the American Journal of Reproductive Immunology, also reports that expression of the enzyme is lower in pregnant women compared to those with pre-eclampsia, a condition with inflammatory components.. The study is significant because the newly discovered mechanism points to a pathway that could be targeted for treatment. It may be possible to design drugs that mildly suppress pyruvate kinase ...

Calcium Pyruvate aids in the reduction of fat and increases stamina. Pyruvate is widely used for weight loss enhancement and exercise endurance, and is naturally found in red apples, cheeses, and red wine. A discovery made at the University of Pittsburgh School of Medicine showed that a diet supplemented with Pyruvate increased fat loss by up to 18% and minimized the associated loss of body protein. Normally, during dietary restriction to promote fat loss, there is always a corresponding loss of muscle, but this study shows pyruvate to be an effective fat burner without the side effects associated with low calorie starvation diet plans.
