Ca2+ is a universal carrier of biological information: it controls cell life from its origin at fertilization to its end in the process of programmed cell death. Ca2+ is a conventional diffusible second messenger released inside cells by the interaction of first messengers with plasma membrane receptors. However, it can also penetrate directly into cells to deliver information without the intermediation of first or second messengers. Even more distinctively, Ca2+ can act as a first messenger, by interacting with a plasma membrane receptor to set in motion intracellular signaling pathways that involve Ca2+ itself. Perhaps the most distinctive property of the Ca2+ signal is its ambivalence: while essential to the correct functioning of cells, Ca2+ becomes an agent that mediates cell distress, or even (toxic) cell death, if its concentration and movements inside cells are not carefully tuned. Ca2+ is controlled by reversible complexation to specific proteins, which could be pure Ca2+ buffers, or ...
The water space in the following sounds strange. What does it mean? Energy and infrastructure capitalization are the two main issues with the most technological solutions to our water problems. With abundant energy, half of this problem is solved..... lets now turn to capitalization. ..... The average microfinance loan in water space is between $200 and $800. Currently the cost of producing a single Slingshot is $100,000. Thank you.

Although the genes for LTα3 and TNF were identified at the same time (12), the functions of TNF have been more clearly defined than those for LTα3. LTα3 has been considered either as a mediator of inflammation or a functionally redundant form of TNF (20). Recently, with the advent of recombinant forms of LTα3, in vitro studies have delineated proinflammatory properties for LTα3 (21), although in vivo activity of LTα3, independent of TNF, has not been defined. This study demonstrates, for the first time, an essential function for secreted LTα3, but not membrane-bound LTβ, in the control of pulmonary tuberculosis. TNF production was not impaired in the LTα- and LTβ-deficient chimeric mice, with TNF mRNA being produced in the lungs of M. tuberculosis-infected LTα−/− and LTβ−/− chimeric mice (Fig. 3 C). Importantly, macrophages from LTα- and LTβ-deficient mice demonstrated normal TNF secretion in response to both nonspecific activation and infection with M. tuberculosis (Fig. 3 ...

Calcium homeostasis in cardiac myocytes results from the integrated function of transsarcolemmal Ca2+ influx and efflux pathways modulated by membrane potential and from intracellular Ca2+ uptake and release caused predominantly by SR function. These processes can be importantly altered in different disease states as well as by pharmacological agents, and the resulting changes in systolic and diastolic [Ca2+]i can cause clinically significant alterations in contraction and relaxation of the heart. It may be anticipated that a rapid increase in our understanding of the pathophysiology of Ca2+ homeostasis in cardiac myocytes will be forthcoming as the powerful new tools of molecular and structural biology are used to investigate the regulation of Ca2+ transport systems. ...

Lysosomes degrade and recycle transported cellular components and internalized material by fusing with autophagosomes, phagosomes, and late endosomes. The resulting lysosomal breakdown products are used to generate new macromolecules and to provide energy in response to the nutritional needs of the cell. Recently, lysosome functions were expanded to include roles in nutrient sensing and energy metabolism (4). In this study, we report that the exposure of macrophages to LPS or heat-killed bacteria raises AGS3 levels. The increases in AGS3 reduced signaling through the mTOR pathway. However, in a nutrient-replete state this did not lead to a substantive increase in autophagy, but it did facilitate the nuclear translocation of TFEB, which transcriptionally activates many of the genes involved in lysosomal biogenesis and function. The subsequent increase in lysosomal biogenesis/function helped macrophages to resist intracellular infections by several strains of antibiotic-resistant ...
Myeloid cells of the immune system serve a dual function in early containment and direct elimination of invading bacteria as well as in the sensing and scaling the threat of bacterial infection to mount appropriate immune responses against pathogenic bacteria. Detection of PAMPs such as bacterial cell wall constituents or CpG‐rich bacterial DNA by TLRs does not allow the macrophage to discriminate between bacterial debris and the presence of viable and virulent bacteria. Breaching of plasma membranes or spillage of proteolytic enzymes from damaged phagolysosomes, however, indicates not only bacterial viability but also virulence. Nonpathogenic bacteria typically do not enter the cytosol, and they do not deliver virulence factors into the cytosol of host cells. Rapid and robust induction of immunity is necessary to fight highly virulent bacteria, whereas elimination of bacterial degradation products does not require the same strength of response. Moreover, detecting the threat of a bacterial ...

TY - JOUR. T1 - Arachidonic acid increases intracellular calcium in erythrocytes. AU - Soldati, Laura. AU - Lombardi, Cinzia. AU - Adamo, Donatella. AU - Terranegra, Annalisa. AU - Bianchin, Cristiana. AU - Bianchi, Giuseppe. AU - Vezzoli, Giuseppe. PY - 2002. Y1 - 2002. N2 - Recently, we have measured in erythrocytes a voltage-modulated and dihydropyridine-inhibited calcium influx. Since arachidonic acid and other polyunsaturated fatty acids influence the activities of most ion channels, we studied their effects on the erythrocyte Ca2+ influx. It was measured on fresh erythrocytes, isolated from healthy donors, using the fluorescent dye Fura 2 as indicator of [Ca2+]i. AA (5-50 μM) and EPA (20-30 μM) stimulated a concentration-dependent increase in [Ca2+]i, deriving from extracellular calcium (1 mM), without affecting the intra- and extracellular pH and membrane voltage. The Ca2+ influx rate varied from 0.5 to 3 nM Ca2+/s in the presence of AA and from 0.9 to 1.7 nM Ca2+/s with EPA. The Ca2+ ...

Aequorin, which luminesces in the presence of calcium, was injected into photoreceptor cells of Limulus ventral eye. A bright light stimulus elicited a large increase in aequorin luminescence, the aequorin response, indicating a rise of intracellular calcium ion concentration, Cai. The aequorin response reached a maximum after the peak of the electrical response of the photoreceptor, decayed during a prolonged stimulus, and returned to an undetectable level in the dark. Reduction of Cao reduced the amplitude of the aequorin response by a factor no greater than 3. Raising Cao increased the amplitude of the aequorin response. The aequorin response became smaller when membrane voltage was clamped to successively more positive values. These results indicate that the stimulus-induced rise of Cai may be due in part to a light-induced influx of Ca and in part to release of Ca from an intracellular store. Our findings are consistent with the hypothesis that a rise in Cai is a step in the sequence of ...
Background: During infection by intracellular pathogens, a highly complex interplay occurs between the infected cell trying to degrade the invader and the pathogen which actively manipulates the host cell to enable survival and proliferation. Many intracellular pathogens pose important threats to human health and major efforts have been undertaken to better understand the host-pathogen interactions that eventually determine the outcome of the infection. Over the last decades, the unicellular eukaryote Dictyostelium discoideum has become an established infection model, serving as a surrogate macrophage that can be infected with a wide range of intracellular pathogens. In this study, we use high-throughput RNA-sequencing to analyze the transcriptional response of D. discoideum when infected with Mycobacterium marinum and Legionella pneumophila. The results were compared to available data from human macrophages.. Results: The majority of the transcriptional regulation triggered by the two pathogens ...
TY - JOUR. T1 - Requirement of intracellular calcium mobilization for peroxynitrite- induced poly(ADP-ribose) synthetase activation and cytotoxicity. AU - Virág, László. AU - Scott, Gwen S.. AU - Antal-Szalmás, Péter. AU - OConnor, Michael. AU - Ohshima, Hiroshi. AU - Szabó, Csaba. PY - 1999/10/29. Y1 - 1999/10/29. N2 - Peroxynitrite is a cytotoxic oxidant produced during shock, ischemia reperfusion, and inflammation. The cellular events mediating the cytotoxic effect of peroxynitrite include activation of poly(ADP-ribose) synthetase, inhibition of mitochondrial respiration, and activation of caspase-3. The aim of the present study was to investigate the role of intracellular calcium mobilization in the necrotic and apoptotic cell death induced by peroxynitrite. Peroxynitrite, in a low, pathophysiologically relevant concentration (20 μM), induces rapid (1 to 3 min) Ca2+ mobilization in thymocytes. Inhibition of this early calcium signaling by cell-permeable Ca2+ chelators ...
