In DG cultures exposed to 10 mM NaCN for 45 min, ≈90% of neurons (identified by immunoreactivity against NeuN, a neuronal marker) died 24 h after hypoxia, because they stained with propidium iodide. Survival of GFAP-immunoreactive glia was not affected (data not shown). Combining the same cyanide treatment with glucose deprivation ("ischemia") had very similar effects on the neurons. By EM, many hypoxic neurons showed early swelling of mitochondria and endoplasmic reticulum, in the presence of an intact nucleus (Fig. 1B), and evolved later toward necrosis with severe cytoplasmic swelling and membrane rupture (Fig. 1C). This finding was in sharp contrast to staurosporine-treated apoptotic neurons, which displayed nuclear breakdown into large, round masses of chromatin (Fig. 1D). Hypoxic necrosis evolved rapidly: we observed a progressive loss of the mitochondrial membrane potential Δψ within a few minutes of cyanide application (Fig. 2 A-D). This Δψ decay was always synchronous with release ...
Expression of the HTLV receptor was strictly dependent on de novo protein synthesis. It has been shown that prior to T-lymphocyte proliferation, there is a 7- to 10-fold increase in protein synthesis and a 30- to 40-fold augmentation in mRNA synthesis.33This "pre-proliferation" characteristic appears to be a particularity of T lymphocytes and is not observed in other cell types. The required pre-proliferation burst in mRNA/protein synthesis likely results from the extremely low metabolic rate of resting G0T lymphocytes, which make up the vast majority of the circulating T-lymphocyte pool. Thus, it is intriguing to speculate that it is this low metabolic rate that accounts for the fact that T lymphocytes are the first and only cell type, identified to date, which do not constitutively express the HTLV receptor. Notably, Wodarz and Bangham have recently used a mathematical model to suggest that the rate of evolution of HTLV-1 is limited by the restricted availability of activated uninfected T ...
Studies were performed to investigate whether electrically-induced long-term depression (LTD) within rat hippocampal slices in vitro shares any common cellular features with LTD in the intact animal, with particular emphasis being placed on mechanisms required for its late maintenance. Our initial studies have led to the development of stimulation protocols which are able to reliably produce different forms of LTD. Depending on the induction protocol applied, we are able to demonstrate a transient protein synthesis-independent early-LTD with a duration of up to 3-4 h, together with a de novo protein synthesis-dependent late-LTD lasting for at least 8 h. Furthermore, we are able to show input-specific LTD within the CA1 region, with expression shown only by those synapses specifically stimulated by a low-frequency protocol. These studies are important pre-requisites to investigate mechanisms of synaptic tagging and late-associativity during LTD ...
Troemels team of researchers-who included Tiffany Dunbar, Zhi Yan, Keir Balla and Margery Smelkinson-found in their experiments that a particular genetic system-the "ZIP-2 surveillance pathway"-was used by the roundworm in detecting an infection by the disease-causing bacterium Pseudomonas aeruginosa. The biologists also found that a specific toxin in the bacterium-"Exotoxin A"-blocks protein synthesis in the worms intestine.. "Surprisingly, this block leads to increased protein levels of the ZIP-2 transcription factor to ultimately induce expression of defense genes," the scientists conclude in their paper. "Thus, a common form of pathogen attack acts to switch on host defense, allowing discrimination of pathogens from innocuous microbes.". "In addition to P. aeruginosa Exotoxin A," said Troemel, "there are several other bacterial toxins known to block protein synthesis, such as Diphtheria toxin, Ricin toxin and Shiga toxin. These toxins cause substantial impact on public health. For example, ...

BioAssay record AID 327182 submitted by ChEMBL: Inhibition of JNK1 in rat H9c2 cells assessed as inhibition of anisomycin-induced cJun phosphorylation after 30 mins.
We have investigated the effect of chemotherapeutic and DNA damaging agents on binding of the tumor suppressor phosphoprotein p53 to its consensus DNA sequence. Activation of p53-DNA binding was seen for treatment with radiation, hydrogen peroxide, actinomycin D, Adriamycin, etoposide, camptothecin, 5-fluorouracil, mitomycin C, and cisplatin. These results showed that DNA strand breaks were sufficient to lead to increased levels of p53. The protein synthesis inhibitor cycloheximide blocks the increase in p53 following DNA damage. The increase in p53 activation in camptothecin treated cells may result, at least in part, from an increased half-life of the protein and consequent increases in intracellular protein concentration.. ...
Although high-level resistance to streptomycin arises from mutations in a ribosomal protein, the source of low-level resistance to this antibiotic remained obscure for several decades. Now that mystery is solved, although it raises several others, according to Kenji Nishimura, Susumu Okamoto, and others who work with Kozo Ochi at the National Food Research Institute, Tsukuba, Japan. They report that low-level streptomycin resistance arises because of a mutation to a gene encoding a specific methyl transferase that, in turn, leaves a particular nucleotide unmethylated at the site along the ribosome called the 530 loop. In this unmethylated state, the ribosome remains capable of making proteins even in the presence of streptomycin, which ordinarily blocks protein synthesis.

The data presented here demonstrate that blocking dopaminergic signaling within the BLA either at the D1R with SCH23390 or at the D2R with raclopride prevented the amnesia that normally follows post-reactivation protein synthesis inhibition. Therefore, the CS−sucrose memory, retrieved and behaviorally expressed during the memory reactivation session, did not require protein synthesis in order to restabilize and subsequently persist-consistent with the hypothesis that activity at either D1Rs or D2Rs is required for destabilization of the CS−sucrose memory. That the memorys persistence was independent of protein synthesis cannot be attributed to the parameters of the memory reactivation session, since rats having received intra-amygdala vehicle infusions prior to reactivation were subsequently amnesic at test following post-reactivation administration of the protein synthesis inhibitor anisomycin. Furthermore, nonselective antagonism at dopamine receptors with α-flupenthixol did not block ...
The protein synthesis inhibitor anisomycin features a unique benzylpyrrolidine system and exhibits diverse biological and pharmacologic activities. Its biosynthetic origin has remained obscure for more than 60 y, however. Here we report the identification of the biosynthetic gene cluster (BGC) of anisomycin in Streptomyces hygrospinosus var. beijingensis by a bioactivity-guided high-throughput screening method. Using a combination of bioinformatic analysis, reverse genetics, chemical analysis, and in vitro biochemical assays, we have identified a core four-gene ensemble responsible for the synthesis of the pyrrolidine system in anisomycin: aniQ, encoding a aminotransferase that catalyzes an initial deamination and a later reamination steps; aniP, encoding a transketolase implicated to bring together an glycolysis intermediate with 4-hydroxyphenylpyruvic acid to form the anisomycin molecular backbone; aniO, encoding a glycosyltransferase that catalyzes a cryptic glycosylation crucial for ...

Fig. 5. Identification of Pax3 binding sites on Pax3 promoters in vitro (A) Pax3, but not Zic1 alone, can trigger synthesis of the endogenous Pax3 transcript (primers in 3UTR, not amplifying the inducible form) either in absence of the translation inhibitor cycloheximide (induction is 5-fold compared to uninjected animal caps) or in the presence of cycloheximide (induction is 31-fold, compared to cycloheximide-treated uninjected animal caps). Endogenous pax3 expression level in a stage 11 whole embryo is set at a relative value of 1 unit. After co-injection of Pax3 and Zic1, endogenous pax3 was activated as an immediate-early target as well (77-fold compared to uninjected animal caps; and, in presence of cycloheximide, 16-fold when compared to cycloheximide-treated uninjected animal caps).

Treatment with the protein synthesis inhibitor cycloheximide (CHX) or silencing of the core component of the NMD machinery, Upf-1 (also known as Rent1), are widely used to determine if transcripts are subject to NMD (Montfort et al., 2006). CHX is an indirect NMD inhibitor since NMD activation is posttranscriptional, but translation-dependent, and ribosomal association is required during the pioneer round of translation. Upf-1 silencing is believed to produce direct suppression of NMD. The RNA helicase, Upf-1, is a central effector of NMD that links the translation-termination event to the assembly of a surveillance complex. Upf2 and Upf3 are believed to recruit and activate Upf1 on NMD substrates (Lykke-Andersen et al., 2000). Although the discrimination of PTCs from normal termination codons and the molecular links that trigger NMD are still unclear, it is well established that the core components of the NMD machinery are the conserved proteins, Upf-1, Upf-2 and Upf-3. PTC-containing mRNAs ...
Previous studies have led to the hypothesis that some proteins of the postsynaptic membrane are locally synthesized at postsynaptic sites. To evaluate this hypothesis, synaptosome fractions that included fragments of dendrites were allowed to incorporate labeled amino acid into protein. The labeled synaptosomes were then subfractionated to the level of the synaptic plasma membrane (SPM) and then the synaptic junctional complex (SJC). The specific activity (cpm/microgram protein) of the synaptosome fraction and its subfractions was assessed by scintillation counting and protein assay, and labeled polypeptides were characterized by SDS-PAGE and fluorography. The contribution of mitochondrial and eucaryotic protein synthesis to the overall incorporation was evaluated using cycloheximide (CYC), a eucaryotic protein synthesis inhibitor, and chloramphenicol (CAP), a mitochondrial protein synthesis inhibitor. Both the SPM and the SJC subfractions obtained from labeled synaptosomes contained labeled ...

Memory traces, once established, are no longer sensitive to disruption by metabolic inhibitors. However, memories reactivated by reminder are once again vulnerable, in a time-dependent manner, to amnestic treatment. To determine whether the metabolic events following a reminder recapitulate those following initial training we examined the temporal dynamics of amnesia induced by the protein synthesis inhibitor anisomycin and the glycosylation inhibitor 2-deoxygalactose. The effects of both were transient and dependent on time of reminder post-training and time of injection relative to reminder, and differed from those following initial training. 2-[C-14]-deoxyglucose uptake increased in two brain regions, the intermediate medial hyperstriatum ventrale (IMHV) and lobus parolfactorius (LPO) following reminder as it did following training, but the increase was bilateral rather than confined to the left hemisphere and was more marked in LPO than IMHV. C-fos expression after reminder was increased ...

The inhibition of protein synthesis in eukaryotic cells will prevent them from entering mitosis. Emetine inhibits peptide elongation. When it was added to asynchronous populations of Chinese hamster ovary (CHO) cells, the mitotic index decreased sharply 30 to 40 min later. It was found that the inhibitory effect of emetine could be reversed when it was removed and the reversibility was dependent on both the initial concentration of emetine and the pH of the medium. Cell populations that were blocked by emetine for up to 2h showed a four- to fivefold increase in mitotic index approximately 1 h after the emetine was removed. These results indicate that there is a point or period in G2 phase at which critical mitotic proteins are being synthesized, and if their synthesis is interrupted cells will fail to enter mitosis. ...
SR9243 is a potent and selective LXR inverse agonist. SR9243 kills cancer cells by inhibiting lipid production and the Warburg effect. SR9243 induces cell death in multiple types of cancer and does not cause the side effects that have derailed previous attempts to target these processes. In cancer cells, SR9243 significantly inhibited the Warburg effect and lipogenesis by reducing glycolytic and lipogenic gene expression. SR9243 induced apoptosis in tumors without inducing weight loss, hepatotoxicity, or inflammation. Malignant cells exhibit aerobic glycolysis (the Warburg effect) and become dependent on de novo lipogenesis, which sustains rapid proliferation and resistance to cellular stress.

Weigh out the appropriate amount of cycloheximide and add it to the appropriate amount of DMSO to get a 50mg/ml solution. Use the Botstein labs balance as it is much more accurate than ours. It seems to make the most sense to aim for about 100mg (but if it is slightly over or under that is fine) and then put this in a 2ml eppendorf or similar tube (you can use a 15ml conical if you are going to make a larger volume) and add the appropriate amount of DMSO to this based on what you weighed out.

TY - JOUR. T1 - RNA trafficking and local protein synthesis in dendrites. T2 - an overview.. AU - Martin, Kelsey C.. AU - Zukin, R. Suzanne. PY - 2006/7/5. Y1 - 2006/7/5. N2 - It is now widely accepted that mRNAs localize to dendrites and that translation of these mRNAs is regulated in response to neuronal activity. Recent studies have begun to reveal the underpinnings of these processes and to underscore the importance of local protein synthesis to synaptic remodeling and plasticity. When Steward and Levy (1982) first reported their observation of polyribosomes at the base of spines, the prevailing view was that all proteins were synthesized in the cell body and then transported to distal compartments of neurons. Steward and Levys discovery, however, raised the intriguing possibility that mRNAs could be transported to synapses and locally translated in response to synaptic stimulation. This provided an elegant mechanism for spatially restricting gene expression within the neuron, such that ...

Cells exposed to stress or toxins either in vitro or in vivo respond in a variety of ways depending on the stress and the cell type. Key front-line target organs such as heart, kidney, liver, and skin are equipped to respond to stressors or toxins in an organ-specific way. Toxicologists use cultured cells from these organs as model systems to ascertain the effects of test compounds. Reactive oxygen species induce oxidative stress, and elevated temperatures induce heat shock. Imbalances in osmolarity and inhibitors of ion channels cause osmotic stress, while protein synthesis inhibitors activate the unfolded protein response. Stress response pathways often cross-talk or synergize with one another, particularly under prolonged exposure conditions or exposure to multiple stresses. For example, inflammation induces stress responses, but specific chronic sources of stress, such as oxidative stress and heat shock, also induce inflammation. These stresses ultimately cause DNA damage or other types of ...
