The fact that coimmunoprecipitation of PKR with E3 was dependent on Lys-167 and Arg-168 in the E3 DRBM suggests that PKR resides in heteromeric complexes containing both E3 and dsRNA. This seems at odds with the dsRNA sequestration model, in which E3 prevents PKR from interacting with dsRNA, and more consistent with the notion that E3 inhibits PKR via heterocomplex formation. It could be argued that E3 and PKR do not directly interact with one another in these complexes but simply bind independently to the same dsRNA molecules. To explain our coimmunoprecipitation results by this hypothesis, the numbers of dsRNA and E3 molecules would have to be nearly equivalent in yeast cells. If dsRNA molecules were in large molar excess of E3, then PKR would most frequently bind to dsRNA molecules lacking E3. If E3 was in large molar excess of dsRNA, it would compete with PKR for limited dsRNA binding sites (as suggested by the dsRNA sequestration model). In either case, most of the PKR would not be ...
BACKGROUND: Inflammation may be involved in the pathogenesis of Alzheimers disease (AD). There has been little success with anti-inflammatory drugs in AD, while the promise of anti-inflammatory treatment is more evident in experimental models. A new anti-inflammatory strategy requires a better understanding of molecular mechanisms. Among the plethora of signaling pathways activated by β-amyloid (Aβ) peptides, the nuclear factor-kappa B (NF-κB) pathway could be an interesting target. In virus-infected cells, double-stranded RNA-dependent protein kinase (PKR) controls the NF-κB signaling pathway. It is well-known that PKR is activated in AD. This led us to study the effect of a specific inhibitor of PKR on the Aβ42-induced inflammatory response in primary mixed murine co-cultures, allowing interactions between neurons, astrocytes and microglia. METHODS: Primary mixed murine co-cultures were prepared in three steps: a primary culture of astrocytes and microglia for 14 days, then a primary culture of

Biochemical data from many laboratories have clearly defined PKR as an IFN-inducible gene product whose enzymatic activity is stimulated by dsRNA (2, 10, 20, 27). Because of these properties, PKR has been predicted to play a major role in IFN-mediated antiviral defense. Indeed, PKR demonstrated an antiviral role in cultured cells following various means of overexpression of the wild type or catalytically inactive mutants (21, 22, 28). However, previous studies from our lab and others have failed to demonstrate a definitive role for PKR on an organismal level following genetic ablation of PKR in mice (1, 36). Yang et al. (36) challenged their PKR−/− mice with EMCV (∼1,000 PFU i.v.) and found no difference in survival from that of wild-type animals, but the mice did show a diminished protective effect from pretreatment with either IFN-γ or the dsRNA analogue poly(I · C). In a recent report, Zhou et al. have also shown only a very slight difference in survival between wild-type animals and ...
Studies have reported that development of congestive heart failure is associated with increased endoplasmic reticulum stress. Double stranded RNA-activated protein kinase R-like endoplasmic reticulum kinase (PERK) is a major transducer of the endoplasmic reticulum stress response and directly phosphorylates eukaryotic initiation factor 2α, resulting in translational attenuation. However, the physiological effect of PERK on congestive heart failure development is unknown. To study the effect of PERK on ventricular structure and function, we generated inducible cardiac-specific PERK knockout mice. Under unstressed conditions, cardiac PERK knockout had no effect on left ventricular mass, or its ratio to body weight, cardiomyocyte size, fibrosis, or left ventricular function. However, in response to chronic transverse aortic constriction, PERK knockout mice exhibited decreased ejection fraction, increased left ventricular fibrosis, enhanced cardiomyocyte apoptosis, and exacerbated lung remodeling ...
Recently we reported that introduction of catalytically inactive PKR molecules into NIH 3T3 cells causes malignant transformation and the development of tumors in nude mice. We have proposed that PKR may be a tumor suppressor gene possibly because of its translational inhibitory properties. We have now designed and characterized a number of PKR mutants encoding proteins that retain their catalytic competence but are mutated in their regulatory double-stranded RNA (dsRNA) binding domains (RBDs). RNA binding analysis revealed that PKR proteins either lacking or with point mutations in the first RBD (RBD-1) bound negligible amounts of dsRNA activator or adenovirus VAI RNA inhibitor. Despite the lack of binding, such variants remained functionally competent but were much less active than wild-type PKR. PKR variants completely lacking RBD-1 were largely unresponsive to dsRNA in activation assays but could be activated by heparin. To complement these studies, we evaluated the effects of point ...

Protein kinase RNA-activated also known as protein kinase R (PKR), interferon-induced, double-stranded RNA-activated protein kinase, or eukaryotic translation initiation factor 2-alpha kinase 2 (EIF2AK2) is an enzyme that in humans is encoded by the EIF2AK2 gene. PKR protects against viral infections. Protein kinase-R is activated by double-stranded RNA (dsRNA), introduced to the cells by a viral infection. PKR can also be activated by the protein PACT or by heparin. PKR contains an N-terminal dsRNA binding domain (dsRBD) and a C-terminal kinase domain, that gives it pro-apoptotic (cell-killing) functions. The dsRBD consists of two tandem copies of a conserved double stranded RNA binding motif, dsRBM1 and dsRBM2. PKR is induced by interferon in a latent state. Binding to dsRNA is believed to activate PKR by inducing dimerization and subsequent auto-phosphorylation reactions. In situations of viral infection, the dsRNA created by viral replication and gene expression binds to the N-terminal ...
One of the key mediators of the antiviral and antiproliferative actions of interferon is double-stranded-RNA-dependent protein kinase (PKR). PKR activity is also involved in the regulation of cell proliferation, apoptosis and signal transduction. We have recently identified PACT, a novel protein activator of PKR, as an important modulator of PKR activity in cells in the absence of viral infection. PACT heterodimerizes with PKR and activates it by direct protein-protein interactions. Endogenous PACT acts as an activator of PKR in response to diverse stress signals, such as serum starvation and peroxide or arsenite treatment, and is therefore a novel, stress-modulated physiological activator of PKR. In this study, we have characterized the functional domains of PACT that are required for PKR activation. Our results have shown that, unlike the N-terminal conserved domains 1 and 2, the third conserved domain of PACT is dispensable for its binding of double-stranded RNA and inter action with PKR. ...
Background In this study, we investigated whether PKR protein expression is correlated with mRNA levels and also evaluated molecular biomarkers that are associated with PKR, such as phosphorylated PKR (p-PKR) and phosphorylated eIF2α (p-eIF2α). Methodology and Findings We determined the levels of PKR protein expression and mRNA in 36 fresh primary lung tumor tissues by using Western blot analysis and real-time reverse-transcriptase PCR (RT-PCR), respectively. We used tissue microarrays for immunohistochemical evaluation of the expression of p-PKR and p-eIF2α proteins. We demonstrated that PKR mRNA levels are significantly correlated with PKR protein levels (Spearmans rho = 0.55, p|0.001), suggesting that PKR protein levels in tumor samples are regulated by PKR mRNA. We also observed that the patients with high p-PKR or p-eIF2α expression had a significantly longer median survival than those with little or no p-PKR or p-eIF2α expression (p = 0.03 and p = 0.032, respectively). We further evaluated

This study identifies PKR as an essential mediator for several forms of stress-induced apoptosis. Specifically, our results implicate PKR in a signaling pathway that is responsive not only to dsRNA, but also to TNF-α and LPS. While the activation of PKR by dsRNA has been well studied (8), the mechanism of activation by these other stimuli is presently unclear. One possibility could involve the phosphorylation of PKR by an upstream kinase that is activated by one of the above stimuli [for example, the TNF-receptor-associated kinase, RIP (27), or a TNF-α/LPS-activated MAP kinase (4)]. Regardless of the activation mechanisms involved, our data show that PKR is required for regulating the DNA-binding ability of IRF-1 in response to stress-related stimuli. Previous studies have suggested that expression of IRF-1 protein in cells is insufficient to manifest any functional activity unless a phosphorylation signal is provided, potentially by PKR (28). While the mechanistic details of the interaction ...

Hepatitis C virus (HCV) is a major cause of liver disease throughout the world. The NS5A and E2 proteins of HCV genotype 1 were reported to inhibit the double-stranded (ds) RNA-dependent protein kinase (PKR), which is involved in the cellular antiviral response induced by interferon (IFN). The response to IFN therapy is quite different between genotypes, with response rates among patients infected with types 2 and 3 that are two-three-fold higher than in patients infected with type 1. Interestingly, a significant percentage of HCV genotype 3-infected patients do not respond to treatment at all. The aim of this paper was to analyse the sequences of fragments of the E2 and NS5A regions from 33 outpatients infected with genotype 3a, including patients that have responded (SVR) or not responded (NR) to treatment. HCV RNA was extracted and amplified with specific primers for the NS5A and E2 regions and the PCR products were then sequenced. The sequences obtained covered amino acids (aa) 636-708 in E2 ...
The human 6-16 and ISG12 genes are transcriptionally upregulated in a variety of cell types in response to type I interferon (IFN). The predicted products of these genes are small (12.9 and 11.5 kDa respectively), hydrophobic proteins that share 36% overall amino acid identity. Gene disruption and over-expression studies have so far failed to reveal any biochemical or cellular roles for these proteins. We have used in silico analyses to identify a novel family of genes (the ISG12 gene family) related to both the human 6-16 and ISG12 genes. Each ISG12 family member codes for a small hydrophobic protein containing a conserved ~80 amino-acid motif (the ISG12 motif). So far we have detected 46 family members in 25 organisms, ranging from unicellular eukaryotes to humans. Humans have four ISG12 genes: the 6-16 gene at chromosome 1p35 and three genes (ISG12(a), ISG12(b) and ISG12(c)) clustered at chromosome 14q32. Mice have three family members (ISG12(a), ISG12(b1) and ISG12(b2)) clustered at chromosome 12F1
Melanoma differentiation associated gene-7(mda-7) encodes IL-24, a cytokine that can selectively trigger apoptosis in transformed cells. Recombinant mda-7 adenovirus (Ad.mda-7) effectively kills glioma cells, offering a novel gene therapy strategy to address deadly brain tumors. In this study, we defined the proximal mechanisms by which Ad-mda-7 kills glioma cells. Key factors implicated included activation of the endoplasmic reticulum stress kinase protein kinase R-like endoplasmic reticulum kinase (PERK), Ca++ elevation, ceramide generation and reactive oxygen species (ROS) production. PERK inhibition blocked ceramide or dihydroceramide generation, which were critical for Ca++ induction and subsequent ROS formation. Activation of autophagy and cell death relied upon ROS formation, the inhibition of which ablated Ad.mda-7-killing activity. In contrast, inhibiting TRX induced by Ad.MDA-7 enhanced tumor cytotoxicity and improved animal survival in an orthotopic tumor model. Our findings indicate ...

As the spread of sedentary lifestyle and obesity in the modern society, according to the data from World Health Organization (WHO), over 300 million people will suffer from diabetes mellitus by the year 2025 [32]. As one of the chronic cardiac complications, cardiovascular complications are major causes responsible for mortality of diabetes [33, 34]. In diabetes- afflicted population, increased risk for cardiac dysfunction which was termed as DCM which was considered independent from other cardiovascular diseases including hypertension, congenital heart disease, valvular heart diseases and coronary artery disease [35]. Apoptosis of cardiomyocytes is considered as one of the hallmarks of DCM, taking part in pathogenesis and progression of cardiac dysfunction during DCM [5, 36]. In this study, diabetes in rats was mimicked by intraperitoneal injection of STZ which selectively causes damage to islet beta cells to suppress insulin secretion. The induction of DCM was evidenced by cardiac pump and ...

The double-stranded RNA (dsRNA) activated protein kinase, PKR, is one of the several enzymes induced by interferons and a key molecule mediating the antiviral effects of interferons. PKR contain an N-terminal, double-stranded RNA binding domain (dsRBD), which has two tandem copies of the motifs (dsRBM I and dsRBM II). Upon binding to viral dsRNA, PKR is activated via autophosphorylation. Activated PKR has several substrates; one of the examples is eukaryotic translation initiation factor 2 (eIF2a). The phosphorylation of eIF2a leads to the termination of cell growth by inhibiting protein synthesis in response to viral infection. The objective of this project was to characterize the dsRBM I and define the dsRNA binding using biophysical methods. First, the dsRBM I gene was cloned from a pET-28b to a pET-11a expression plasmid. N-terminal poly-histidine tags on pET-28b are for affinity purification; however, these tags can alter the structure and function of proteins, thus the gene of

P58IPK also inhibits PERK, an eIF2α kinase that is localized in the endoplasmic reticulum (ER) and induced during ER stress. The ability of P58IPK to interact with and inhibit multiple eIF2α kinases suggests it is a critical regulator of both cellular and viral mRNA translation. In this study, we sought to definitively define the role of P58IPK during ...
Autophagy is currently known to be an essential component of host innate and adaptive immunity. is sufficient to render the cells resistant to virus-induced and PKR-induced autophagy. PKR expression as well as the PKR binding area of Us11 are necessary for the antiautophagic activity of Us11. Nevertheless, unlike ICP34.5, PF-04217903 Us11 didnt connect to Beclin 1.

Although the regulation of eIF-2 phosphorylation has remained a focus of several studies linking PKR to cell growth control, a connection to regulation of the proto-oncogene c- myc may be more relevant to tumor development.

Mechanisms of differential NS1 function.There are many reports describing the purported mechanisms by which NS1 functions (1, 4, 9, 17, 20, 25, 28, 31-36, 38, 42, 53), and different regions of the protein mediate specific activities. The N terminus of NS1 binds and sequesters dsRNA, which may thereby block the activation of RIG-I, 2′-5′ OAS, PKR, or other dsRNA-activated proteins. The C terminus of NS1 can block the activity of the nuclear proteins PABPII and CPSF, which prevent the processing and export of mRNA transcripts. The interaction between NS1 and CPSF appears to be stabilized by the viral polymerase complex (specifically PA) and by the viral NP protein, again suggesting that at least some NS1 functions are dependent upon viral gene constellation (26). More recently, an SH3-binding motif on the NS1 C terminus was shown to interact with the p85β subunit of PI3K, which in turn activates the PI3K/Akt pathway in order to mediate anti-apoptotic signaling responses (13, 29, 43, 44, 54). ...
The protein kinase family is large and important, but it is only one family in a larger superfamily of homologous kinases that phosphorylate a variety of substrates and play important roles in all three superkingdoms of life. We used a carefully constructed structural alignment of selected kinases as the basis for a study of the structural evolution of the protein kinase–like superfamily. The comparison of structures revealed a “universal core” domain consisting only of regions required for ATP binding and the phosphotransfer reaction.

Levels of the elF-2a-specific protein kinase, PkR, are higher in several breast carcinoma cell lines including the estrogen-responsive cell lines, MOF-7 and T-47D, as well as estrogen- independent cell lines, BT-20 and MDA-MB-468, compared with the normal breast cell line, Hs578 Bst, or the human HeLa cell line. In contrast, the phosphorylation state of elF-2a is very low in the breast carcinoma cell lines compared to the normal human breast cell line Hs578 Bst and HeLa cells, even at high cell densities, suggesting an inhibition of PkR activity in the breast oarninoma cell lines. In support of this hypothesis, treatment of cells with either alpha- or Beta-interferon, although increasing PKR levels slightly, do not result in higher steady state levels of elF-2a phosphorylation. These results suggest that deregulation of PKR activity is occurring at some level in breast carcinoma cell lines. This deregulation could result from increased levels/activities of cellular PKR inhibitory proteins, or from
CCAAT/enhancer binding protein (C/EBP)-homologous protein (CHOP) has been shown to be a key molecule in endoplasmic reticulum (ER) stress-mediated apoptosis. ER oxidoreductin 1-α (ERO1α), a target of CHOP, is an important oxidizing enzyme that regulates reactive oxygen species (ROS), which play a prominent role in hepatocellular death during acute liver failure (ALF). However, little is known about how CHOP facilitates ROS-induced hepatocellular injury. The present study was designed to investigate the roles and molecular mechanisms of CHOP in ALF. In the liver tissues from ALF patients, the expression of CHOP was significantly increased, which was accompanied by increased expression of dsRNA-dependent protein kinase (PKR)-like ER kinase (PERK) signalling, activating transcription factor 4 (ATF6) signalling, inositol-requiring enzyme-1 (IRE1) signalling and ERO1α, as compared with healthy controls. In the mouse model of galactosamine (GaIN)/lipopolysaccharide (LPS)-induced ALF, the ...
Protein kinase R (PKR)-like endoplasmic reticulum kinase (PERK) is a type I endoplasmic reticulum transmembrane protein containing a stress-sensing domain facing the endoplasmic reticulum lumen and a cytosolic kinase domain. PERK is a major component of the unfolded protein response (UPR), which promotes the adaptation of cells to various forms of stress. PERK is activated in response to a variety of endoplasmic reticulum stresses implicated in numerous disease states. PERK regulates proliferation of beta cells during embryonic and neonatal development and is essential for viability of acinar cells in mouse exocrine pancreas, neither of which is associated with endoplasmic reticulum stress response. PERK is also required for endoplasmic reticulum functions including proinsulin trafficking and quality control in beta cells.

It is found in tandem arrays of 3-16 motifs, which form scaffolds to mediate protein-protein interactions and often the assembly of multiprotein complexes. These alpha-helix pair repeats usually fold together to produce a single, linear solenoid domain called a TPR domain. Proteins with such domains include the anaphase-promoting complex (APC) subunits cdc16, cdc23 and cdc27, the NADPH oxidase subunit p67-phox, hsp90-binding immunophilins, transcription factors, the PKR protein kinase inhibitor, the major receptor for peroxisomal matrix protein import PEX5 and mitochondrial import proteins. The structure of the PP5 protein was the first structure to be determined. The structure solved by X-ray crystallography by Das and colleagues showed that the TPR sequence motif was composed of a pair of antiparallel alpha helices. The PP5 structure ...

The proper regulation of translation is required for the expression of long-lasting synaptic plasticity. a PERK-dependent increase in eIF2α phosphorylation. Our findings are consistent with the notion that eIF2α phosphorylation is definitely a key site for the bidirectional control of prolonged forms of synaptic LTP and LTD and suggest a distinct part for PERK in Read More. ...

The blastp of the GRMZM2G012966 model gives the most complete alignment to lyce1, so that model is likely the most correct model. The lyce1 alignment for Models 1 and 2 are truncated at the 3 end, suggesting that the models have a framshift mutation somewhere in exon 8. Models 1 and 2 do provide some additional information, however. The 3 end of the sequence contains a protein kinase-like (PKc_like superfamily) region, which suggests that both models should in fact be split up into two different genes. This means that the cDNA (gb,BT037027.1; GENE ID: 100216601 LOC100216601 ) is not part of the lcye1 gene, confirming that the gene is confined between coordinates 82,726 and 85,759 (or 138882727 and 138885760 in the Reference Genome).. The blastx results of Model 2 show that exons 8 and 9 (the ones not contained in Model 1 or GRMZM2G012966) aligns to lyce1 (see reading frame +1 between 2000 and 2500 of the query). This supports the idea that an alternative gene model involving alternatively ...

Drug-induced liver injury (DILI) is an important clinical problem. Here, we used a genomics approach to in detail investigate the hypothesis that critical drug-induced toxicity pathways act in synergy with the pro-inflammatory cytokine tumor necrosis factor α (TNFα) to cause cell death of liver HepG2 cells. Transcriptomics of the cell injury stress response pathways initiated by two hepatoxicants, diclofenac and carbamazepine, revealed the endoplasmic reticulum (ER) stress/translational initiation signaling and nuclear factor-erythroid 2 (NF-E2)-related factor 2 (Nrf2) antioxidant signaling as two major affected pathways, which was similar to that observed for the majority of ∼80 DILI compounds in primary human hepatocytes. Compounds displaying weak or no TNFα synergism, namely ketoconazole, nefazodone, and methotrexate, failed to synchronously induce both pathways. The ER stress induced was primarily related to protein kinase R-like ER kinase (PERK) and activating transcription factor 4 (ATF4)
Survival of mosquitoes from dengue virus (DENV) infection is a prerequisite of viral transmission to the host. This study aimed to see how mosquito cells can survive the infection during prosperous replication of the virus. In C6/36 cells, global protein translation was shut down after infection by DENV type 2 (DENV2). However, it returned to a normal level when infected cells were treated with an inhibitor of the protein kinase RNA (PKR)-like ER kinase (PERK) signaling pathway. Based on a 7-Methylguanosine 5′-triphosphate (m7GTP) pull-down assay, the eukaryotic translation initiation factor 4F (eIF4F) complex was also identified in DENV2-infected cells. This suggests that most mosquito proteins are synthesized via canonical cap-dependent translation. When the PERK signal pathway was inhibited, both accumulation of reactive oxygen species and changes in the mitochondrial membrane potential increased. This suggested that ER stress response was alleviated through the PERK-mediated shutdown of global
Methods: Using HepG2 cells, we inhibited UPR signaling using tunicamycin (Tu, 6uM) either with 450 uM leucine (L450) or without leucine (L0). To identify the UPR arms involved, cells were treated (24 hrs) with Tu in L450/L0 in presence or absence of Inositol-requiring enzyme 1( IRE-1) pathway inhibitor 4u8c (50uM), or PKR-like ER kinase (PERK )inhibitor GSK2656157 (1uM). Further, using Tu we activated UPR signaling in combination with/without mTOR activator MHY1485 (1uM) in L450 and L0. The subsequent effects on UPR activity were confirmed using Western blot. IGFBP-1 phosphorylation was assessed in cell media using phospho-site (pS101/ 119/169) specific IGFBP-1 antibodies ...
DUS2L Full-Length MS Protein Standard (NP_060273), Labeled with [U- 13C6, 15N4]-L-Arginine and [U- 13C6, 15N2]-L-Lysine, was produced in human 293 cells (HEK293) with fully chemically defined cell culture medium to obtain incorporation efficiency at Creative-Proteomics. This gene encodes a cytoplasmic protein that catalyzes the conversion of uridine residues to dihydrouridine in the D-loop of tRNA. The resulting modified bases confer enhanced regional flexibility to tRNA. The encoded protein may increase the rate of translation by inhibiting an interferon-induced protein kinase. This gene has been implicated in pulmonary carcinogenesis. Alternatively spliced transcript variants have been described for this gene.
The 5′-triphosphorylated, 2′-5′-linked oligoadenylate polyribonucleotides (2-5As) are central to the interferon-induced antiviral 2-5A system. The 2-5As bind and activate the RNase L, an endoRNase degrading viral and cellular RNA leading to inhibition of viral replication. The 2-5A system is tightly controlled by synthesis and degradation of 2-5As. Whereas synthesis is mediated by the 2′-5′ oligoadenylate synthetase family of enzymes, degradation seems to be orchestrated by multiple enzyme nucleases including phosphodiesterase 12, the ectonucleotide pyrophosphatase/phosphodiesterase 1 and the A-kinase anchoring protein 7. Here we present assay tools for identification and characterization of the enzymes regulating cellular 2-5A levels. A procedure is described for the production of 2′-5′ oligoadenylates, which are then used as substrates for development and demonstration of enzyme assays measuring synthetase and nuclease activities, respectively. The synthetase assays produce only a single
HSV-1 and HSV-2, two closely related neurotropic human herpesviruses, achieve neurotropism through ICP34.5, a major viral neurovirulence factor. In this report, in addition to the full-length 38 kD protein (ICP34.5alpha), we identified a 28 kD novel form of ICP34.5 (ICP34.5beta) in HSV-2-infected cells. ICP34.5beta is translated from unspliced ICP34.5 mRNA, with the retained intron introducing a premature stop codon. Thus, ICP34.5beta lacks the C-terminal conserved GADD34 domain, but includes 19 additional amino acids encoded by the intron. While a fraction of both HSV-2 ICP34.5 proteins are detected in the nucleolus, ICP34.5alpha is predominantly located in cytoplasm and ICP34.5beta is mainly detected more diffusely in the nucleus. ICP34.5beta is unable to counteract PKR-mediated eIF2 phosphorylation, but does not interfere with ICP34.5alphas function in this process. Efficient expression of ICP34.5beta in cell-culture assays is dependent on viral infection or expression of ICP27, a ...

One potential interpretation of the increased PERK expression in PSP patients is that of an attempt to compensate the effects of pEIF2A suppression through a long‐term feedback mechanism. Consistently, we found pEIF2A downregulation already at 2 months of age, but a compensatory PERK upregulation only at 6 months of age in brain homogenates of P301S mice (Fig EV1). However, this effect was not seen in the short‐term cell culture models. The resulting activity pattern of the UPR in PSP brains is illustrated in Fig 6B.. In the 3R/4R tau overexpression model, we detected no MC1 signal by Western blot. Thus, overexpression of either isoform is not sufficient to induce conformational change. Only annonacin‐treated LUHMES cells showed MC1 tau immunoreactivity. 3R tau is by far more abundant than 4R tau in LUHMES cells. Furthermore, the MC1 signal in annonacin‐treated LUHMES cells was running at a molecular weight compatible with the longest 3R tau isoform. Thus, it appears that also 3R tau is ...
Mfn2 is a mitochondrial fusion protein with a lower GTPase activity than that of Mfn1 (Ishihara et al, 2004; Neuspiel et al, 2005). On the basis of the mitochondrial fusion activity of Mfn2, the alterations in mitochondrial morphology and function detected upon silencing or ablation of this gene have been attributed to reduced mitochondrial fusion (Bach et al, 2003; Chen et al, 2003; Pich et al, 2005). Here we provide evidence that an ER‐related mechanism is responsible for the development of swollen mitochondria, enhanced Ca2+ overload, increased ROS production, and reduced mitochondrial respiration in Mfn2‐deficient cells. This view is based on a number of observations, namely, (a) Mfn2 KO or Mfn2‐silenced cells showed sustained PERK activation under basal conditions; (b) PERK silencing ameliorated the mitochondrial network and respiration and reduced ROS production and mitochondrial Ca2+ in Mfn2 KO cells; (c) PERK overexpression caused mitochondrial fragmentation and reduced ...
Failure of the pancreatic β-cells to compensate for high insulin needs is central to the pathogenesis of T2D, and several studies have reported a significant decrease in β-cell mass in T2D (2,26). Chronic exposure to FFAs causes loss of functional β-cell mass (34,35) and may contribute to T2D. Saturated lipids are harmful to β-cells, and pronounced ER stress signaling (especially in the PERK pathway) has been proposed to mediate lipotoxic apoptosis (7-10,15). Execution of FFA-induced apoptosis occurs through the mitochondrial pathway, as indicated by cytochrome c release from the mitochondria after palmitate treatment (13,36,37), but it remained to be clarified how palmitate-induced ER stress crosstalks with the mitochondria to culminate in β-cell death. We have now answered this question, showing that palmitate transcriptionally induces the BH3-only proteins DP5 and PUMA through PERK-dependent ATF3 expression (Fig. 6G).. In the hierarchical model for Bax/Bak activation, the BH3-only ...
RNAi refers to dsRNA-induced gene silencing, a cellular process that degrades RNA homologous to one strand of the dsRNA [1, 2]. The intermediates of long dsRNA-initiated RNAi are double-stranded small interfering RNAs (siRNA), typically 21-23 nucleotide (nt) long. The siRNAs, when introduced into cells, can be used to silence genes in mammalian systems where long dsRNAs prompt protein kinase R (PKR), RNase L, and interferon activities that result in non-specific RNA degradation and general shutdown of protein synthesis [3]. siRNAs can either be chemically synthesized then directly transfected into cells or can be generated inside the cell by introducing vectors that express short-hairpin RNA (shRNA) precursors of siRNAs. The process of shRNA into functional siRNA involves cellular RNAi machinery that naturally process genome encoded microRNAs (miRNA) that are responsible for cellular regulation of gene expression by modulating mRNA stability, translation, and chromatin structures ...

The eIF2α-ATF4 signaling pathway termed "Integrated stress response (ISR)" plays an important role in protecting cells against various cellular stresses such as deprivation of glucose and amino acids, virus infection, and deficiency of heme. Under such stress conditions, eIF2α kinases, including PERK, GCN2, PKR and HRI, phosphorylate eIF2α, resulting in reduction of general protein synthesis while facilitating selective translation of ATF4, a central transcription factor that upregulates expression of stress-induced genes for cellular adaptation. Recently, it was reported that BRAF inhibitor vemurafenib triggers activation of the eIF2α-ATF4 signaling in BRAF-mutant melanoma cell lines; however, activation mechanisms of vemurafenib-induced ISR signaling not fully understood.. In this study, we first compared vemurafenib-induced ISR activation in BRAF-mutant and -wild type melanoma cell lines. Consistent with previous studies, vemurafenib activated ISR signaling preferentially in BRAF-mutant ...

ATF6, a membrane-anchored transcription factor from the endoplasmic reticulum (ER) that modulates the cellular response to stress as an effector of the unfolded-protein response (UPR), is a key player in the development of tumors of different origin. reticulum (ER) can be particularly affected by the presence of mutations in secretory proteins or by dynamic changes in the cellular microenvironment, events which are often encountered in cancers. In the ER, these events are sensed by specific sensors, which in turn trigger select Rabbit Polyclonal to CPB2 signaling pathways, collectively named the unfolded-protein response (UPR) (1). The UPR is an adaptive response that allows the cells to either overcome the stress or promote cell death in the case of overwhelming burden (1). Three ER-resident proteins, namely, the protein kinase PKR-like ER kinase (PERK), the inositol-requiring protein 1 alpha (IRE1), and the activating transcription factor 6 alpha (ATF6), have been identified as the major ...
Carbon monoxide (CO) is neuroprotective in various models of brain injury, but the precise mechanisms for this are yet to be established. In the present study, using a rat model of recurrent febrile seizures (FSs), we found an increase in plasma CO, evidence of neuronal damage and apoptosis, an increase in the expression of the endoplasmic reticulum stress (ERS) marker glucose-regulated protein 78 (GRP78) and C/EBP homologous binding protein (CHOP), and an increase in phosphorylated protein kinase RNA-like endoplasmic reticulum kinase (p-PERK)/eukaryotic translation initiation factor 2 alpha (p-eIF2 alpha) in the hippocampus after 10 FSs. Administration of Hemin (a CO donor) in FS rats alleviated the neuronal damage, reduced neuronal apoptosis, upregulated GRP78 expression, decreased CHOP, and increased p-PERK and p-eIF2 alpha expression in the hippocampus, compared to FS control rats. In contrast, treating FS rats with ZnPP-IX (a CO synthase inhibitor) aggravated the neuronal damage, enhanced ...
Two papers have identified new substrates for dual-specificity tyrosine-phosphorylated and regulated kinases 1A and 2 (DYRK1A and DYRK2). In the first paper by Woods et al., DYRK1A is identified as a contaminating kinase in an in vitro assay for the phosphorylation of the mammalian forkhead transcription factor FKHR by protein kinase B (PKB). FKHR was phosphorylated on a novel site in vitro by DYRK1A, separate from the known PKB phosphorylation sites, and this DYRK1A site was constitutively phosphorylated in vivo. Mutation of the DYRK1A phosphorylation site enhanced transcriptional activation of a reporter gene by FKHR but did not interfere with the repression of FKHR activity in response to insulin. The second Woods et al. paper demonstrates that the cytosolic isoform of DYRK, DYRK2, was able to phosphorylate the translation initiation factor eIF2Bε, which was required for glycogen synthase kinase 3 (GSK3) to phosphorylate eIF2Bε on another site in an in vitro assay. DYRK1A or DYRK2 were also ...
The expression of ISGs is an early response of host to virus infection, and their products confers host the antiviral state which inhibits the entry process or replication of invading virus. To date, multiple proteins translated by ISGs have been validated as antiviral proteins, such as protein kinase R (PKR), myxovirus-resistance proteins, ISG15, Schlafen 11 and so on. IFITM proteins are recently identified antiviral factors that play critical roles in the intrinsic and interferon-mediated control of virus infection [20, 22]. Since initially identified by a siRNA screen for factors that restrict influenza virus replication, more and more researches revealed the inhibition effect of IFITMs on enveloped viruses through affecting the interaction between virus envelope proteins and endosomal or lysosomal [43]. Recently, a study demonstrated that depletion of IFITM1 with siRNA increased titers of H1N1 virus in primary lung fibroblast cells and in HeLa cell line, overexpression of IFITM1 resisted ...

Metabolic-stress sensing protein kinase that phosphorylates the alpha subunit of eukaryotic translation initiation factor 2 (eIF-2-alpha/EIF2S1) on Ser-52 during the unfolded protein response (UPR) and in response to low amino acid availability (PubMed:11106749). Converts phosphorylated eIF-2-alpha/EIF2S1 either in a global protein synthesis inhibitor, leading to a reduced overall utilization of amino acids, or to a translation initiation activator of specific mRNAs, such as the transcriptional activator ATF4, and hence allowing ATF4-mediated reprogramming of amino acid biosynthetic gene expression to alleviate nutrient depletion (PubMed:23921556). Serves as a critical effector of unfolded protein response (UPR)-induced G1 growth arrest due to the loss of cyclin-D1 (CCND1) (PubMed:11035797). Involved in control of mitochondrial morphology and function (PubMed:23921556).
In response to diverse environmental stresses, the phosphorylation of eukaryotic initiation factor-2 (eIF2α) induces a programme of gene expression that mitigates cellular injury. Several protein kinases phosphorylate eIF2α at serine 51, leading to the inhibition of eIF2B activity, that in turn causes a reduction in general protein synthesis and an enhancement of the translation of specific mRNAs encoding for proteins that remediate the stress. In mammalian cells, four eIF2 kinases (HRI, GCN2, PEK/Perk and PKR) inhibit translation initiation through the phosphorylation of eIF2α in response to different types of cellular stress (Dever, 2002; Proud, 2005). In Saccharomyces cerevisiae, Gcn2p is activated upon nutrient limitation (amino acids, purine and glucose), but also by high concentrations of sodium, rapamycin and methyl methanesulfonate (Cherkasova and Hinnebusch, 2003; Narasimhan et al., 2004; Valenzuela et al., 2001; Yang et al., 2000).

Avarol is a sesquiterpenoid hydroquinone with potent cytotoxicity. Although resolving endoplasmic reticulum (ER) stress is essential for intracellular homeostasis, erratic or excessive ER stress can lead to apoptosis. Here, we reported that avarol selectively induces cell death in pancreatic ductal adenocarcinomas (PDAC), which are difficult to treat owing to the availability of few chemotherapeutic agents. Analyses of the molecular mechanisms of avarol-induced apoptosis indicated upregulation of ER stress marker BiP and ER stress-dependent apoptosis inducer CHOP in PDAC cells but not in normal cells, suggesting that avarol selectively induces ER stress responses. We also showed that avarol activated the PERK-eIF2α pathway but did not affect the IRE1 and ATF6 pathways. Moreover, CHOP downregulation was significantly suppressed by avarol-induced apoptosis. Thus, the PERK-eIF2α-CHOP signaling pathway may be a novel molecular mechanism of avarol-induced apoptosis. The present data indicate that avarol
