These investigations identify PD-1 up-regulation as a critical mediator of human interstitial lung disease through increased IL-17A production via the STAT3 signaling pathway. Key investigations have implicated aberrant STAT3 signaling and TH17 cells in murine models of pulmonary fibrosis pathogenesis (9, 28, 29). Here, we report that PD-1 up-regulation on human TH17 cells creates not only an immunosuppressive microenvironment but also a profibrotic one. We demonstrate that IL-17A and TGF-β1 produced by PD-1+CD4+ T cells induce collagen-1 production from HLF, a process that can be impeded by PD-1 pathway blockade. Mechanistically, PD-1 pathway blockade or small-molecule inhibition of STAT3 results in reduced collagen production from HLF.. Immune dysfunction in CD4+ T cells secondary to PD-1 up-regulation in sarcoidosis subjects experiencing loss of pulmonary function has been noted (10). However, the observation of a profibrotic component to PD-1 up-regulation has not been previously described; ...
Regarding your promoter question: yes, but its hard. if you put it there specially to have it expressed, then obviously you have an active promoter (unless youre utterly stupid). But there are plasmids that do not have promoters at all: they are only meant to make the bacteria copy the gene, not to express it. if you have the name of your plasmid, you can usually check with the manufacturer, they will have a map that will tell you what your promoter is. if its a viral promoter then youre all set. If its not, you dont really know unless you search the literature for it. Generally speaking though, a promoter WILL express your gene - thats what a promoter does. Its just that a lot of promoters arent active all the time. For example, the lac promoter is not active if the bacterium doesnt have a CAP protein ...
CIB1 is an important regulatory molecule that is expressed in different tissue types and has various binding partners.11-14 However, the role of CIB1 in ECs has never been explored. In this study, we use in vitro, ex vivo, and in vivo complementary analyses to provide the first evidence describing the critical role of CIB1 in EC function and signaling, growth factor-induced angiogenesis, and ischemia-induced pathological and adaptive angiogenesis.. Recent evidence suggests that CIB1 contributes to important intracellular signaling mechanisms. For example, we previously demonstrated that CIB1 binds to and activates PAK1 in different cell types and that CIB1 depletion results in decreased PAK1 activation on adhesion to fibronectin.14 Furthermore, we previously observed a Cdc42-dependent upregulation of PAK1 activity in CIB1-depeletd rat embryo fibroblasts with extended adhesion to fibronectin.14 In agreement with this, we also observed significantly reduced adhesion-induced PAK1 activation in ...

actually the cause has to do with the adaptation of the eye to light. the darkness causes all the retinen in cone cells to associate with its opsin partner, leading to an increased sensitivity of the cell to intense light. When the light is turned on, it overwhelms the receptor. It takes a few minutes for the eye to adapt and to switch from rod cells to cone cells. I believe the term for this is receptor up-regulation ...

In this study, we investigated the miRNA profile during IPC and identified the selective miRNA changes early after the IPC by comparison with normal and ISC brains. The 8 miRNAs selected in the IPC 3-hour group were categorized into 2 families of miRNAs: the miR-200 family (miR-200a, miR-200b, miR-200c, miR-141, and miR-429) and the miR-182 family (miR-182, miR-183, and miR-96). Among them, miR-200b, miR-200c, and miR-429 targeted PHD2 and had the best neuroprotective effect. Our data can be used for further researches into the IPC mechanism and can contribute to the development of neuroprotective miRNA therapeutics.. Several previous studies have investigated miRNAs as mediators of ischemic tissue damage. In the ischemia of cardiac myocytes, miR-199a is acutely downregulated as early as 30 minutes after ischemia, leading to rapid upregulation of its target HIF-1α,24 which suggests that the changes in miRNA in response to the ischemia seem to be very prompt. Given that the maximum ...
TF is overexpressed in many types of human cancers, and clinical studies have shown a correlation between the levels of TF expression and poor prognosis (22-25). Not only does TF expression occur in a wide spectrum of cancers, but also the level of expression in cancer cells is upregulated by 1,000-fold compared with the levels of normal cells that these cancer cells are derived from (26, 27). This drastic upregulation may, to some extent, be caused by the existence of common tumor microenvironmental stimuli, such as those responsible for TF upregulation during inflammation and hypoxia. Recently, it was shown that TF expression is under the direct control of oncogenic pathways activated by genetic mutations sustained by cancer cells (28). This is shown experimentally by the effect of several mutant oncogenes, including K-ras, EGFR, EGFRvIII, HER-2, and PML-RARa on TF transcription, translation, half-life, and encryption. The effect of these oncogenes was operative in colorectal, mammary, ...

This gene is a member of the HERC family of ubiquitin ligases and encodes a protein with a HECT domain and five RCC1 repeats. Pro-inflammatory cytokines upregulate expression of this gene in endothelial cells. The protein localizes to the cytoplasm and perinuclear region and functions as an interferon-induced E3 protein ligase that mediates ISGylation of protein targets. The gene lies in a cluster of HERC family genes on chromosome 4. [provided by RefSeq, Jul 2008 ...

TGF-β induced a marked and long lasting down-regulation of β2-adrenoceptors mRNA (about 90 % within 6 hrs). Also corticosteroids (dexamethasone and budesonide) alone caused a marked and long lasting up-regulation of β2-adrenoceptors mRNA, but they were not able to prevent or oppose the TGF-β induced down-regulation. Exposure to β-adrenoceptors agonists resulted in a rapid (maximum effect within 1 h), but transient up-regulation of β2-adrenoceptors mRNA level. This effect was mimicked by forskolin, a direct activator of adenylyl cyclase. Furthermore, as β-adrenoceptors agonists-induced up-regulation of β2-adrenoceptors mRNA also in presence of CHX, but not in presence of actinomycin D, it can be concluded that a cAMP direct stimulation of the expression of the β2-adrenoceptors gene may be involved ...
We now know that colonic tumors increasingly express progastrins (PG) as they progress through hyperproliferative (Hp) / adenoma (Ad) / adenocarcinoma (AdCA) sequence. We and others have recently reported that autocrine PG up-regulates expression of stem-cell-markers DCLK1/CD44/LGR5 (Gastro, 2011; IJC, 2012). Two major isoforms of DCLK1 (DCLK1-S, DCLK1-L) have been reported in neuroprogenitor cells. The two isoforms were discovered to be similarly expressed in colonic epithelial cells. Regulatory effects of PG were examined on the two isoforms in normal/cancer cells. Specific primer sets were designed to amplify S and L transcripts using qRT-PCR. Colon cancer cells either expressed S (HCT-116) or both S and L forms (HT-29, DLD1). HEK293 cells were used as a model of non-transformed cells since they respond to PG, do not express autocrine PG, and are non-tumorogenic. PG significantly up-regulated both the transcripts in HEK293 cells. The L-isoform is transcribed by the 5 promoter of the gene ...

The tyrosine kinase receptors HER2 and HER3 play an important role in breast cancer. The HER2/HER3 heterodimer is a critical oncogenic unit associated with reduced relapse-free and decreased overall survival. While signaling cascades downstream of HER2 and HER3 have been studied extensively at the level of post-translational modification, little is known about the effects of HER2/HER3 overexpression and activation on gene expression in breast cancer. We have now defined the genetic landscape induced by activation of the HER2/HER3 unit in mammary cells, and have identified interleukin (IL)8 and CXCR1 as potential therapeutic targets for the treatment of HER2/HER3-overexpressing breast cancers. Three-dimensional (3D) cultures, invasion and migration assays were used to determine the effects of HER2 and HER3 co-expression and activation. Gene expression analysis was performed to identify the gene network induced by HER2/HER3 in 3D cultures. Bioinformatic analysis and neutralizing antibodies were used to

A major challenge in the HIV field has been to understand why the strength of virus-specific CD8 T cell responses has no relationship to viral load, and yet CD8 depletion studies indicate that these cells are critical for immune control. And a major challenge in the field of immunology in general has been the rapid translation of advances in murine models to humans. In late 2005, through a telephone conversation with Rafi Ahmed, we became aware of yet unpublished data in the mouse model of chronic infection. His laboratory had shown that in mice persistently infected with LCMV, T cells up-regulate a surface molecule termed PD-1, for programmed death-1, a negative immunoregulatory molecule that turned off CD8 T cell function. The potential parallels with HIV were immediately obvious to us-perhaps persistent exposure to HIV was having a similar impact on CD8 T cell function in humans, and perhaps similar immune regulation was rendering CD4 T cells exhausted as well.. We immediately formed a ...

In the present study we addressed the question of whether the biosynthesis of secondary carotenoids in H. pluvialisproceeds via an independent second pathway that operates outside the chloroplast, as the accumulation of the astaxanthin esters in cytosolic lipid vesicles might indicate. According to our data for PDS, we conclude that, at least for this relatively early biosynthetic step of carotenogenesis, no second cytosolic pathway exists and that higher biosynthetic activity is coupled to higher amounts of enzyme. Up-regulation on both the mRNA and protein levels was observed upon induction of SC synthesis. Because of slight variability in the extent of SC accumulation between parallels (Grünewald, 1997), we do not interpret the small difference between the maxima in PDS mRNA and protein levels as a sign for post-translational regulation events-at least the main part of up-regulation takes place at the mRNA level.. Bouvier et al. (1998) showed that pepper PDS mRNA increased under different ...
Regulation of cell migration by changes in oxygen availability is a central event during the organization of host response in inflammatory and neoplastic diseases as it may influence leukocyte recruitment and activation, angiogenesis, and metastasis formation (16). Here, we report that Hyp mediates selective up-regulation of CXCR4 in different cell types, including mononuclear phagocytes (monocytes, MDMs, and TAMs), endothelial cells, and cancer cells, and demonstrate that oxygen levels act as an important regulator of CXCR4 receptor expression. Our data also indicate that HIF-1 activation is involved in the Hyp-dependent up-regulation of CXCR4 expression and that the Hyp-HIF-1-CXCR4 circuit may participate in pathophysiological mechanisms under several conditions, ranging from inflammation to tumor angiogenesis and metastasis.. In contrast to standard cell culture conditions, characterized by 20% oxygen concentration, cells in the human body are exposed to much lower oxygen concentrations, ...
In Streptomyces coelicolor, bldA encodes the only tRNA for a rare leucine codon, UUA. This tRNA is unnecessary for growth, but is required for some aspects of secondary metabolism and morphological development. We describe a transcriptomic and proteomic analysis of the effects of deleting bldA on cellular processes during submerged culture: conditions relevant to the industrial production of antibiotics. At the end of rapid growth, a co-ordinated transient up-regulation of about 100 genes, including many for ribosomal proteins, was seen in the parent strain but not the ΔbldA mutant. Increased basal levels of the signal molecule ppGpp in the mutant strain may be responsible for this difference. Transcripts or proteins from a further 147 genes classified as bldA-influenced were mostly expressed late in culture in the wild-type, though others were significantly transcribed during exponential growth. Some were involved in the biosynthesis of seven secondary metabolites; and some have probable roles in
That said, we should be careful in attributing adverse pregnancy outcomes due to preeclampsia in human pregnancy to maternal stress without clear data. The association opens the door for women to blame themselves for having too much stress in their lives and therefore being responsible for their bad outcome. A number of us have tried to find cytokine markers that would serve as markers or predictors of preeclampsia - without much success. There are may be some statistical associations - but the overlap in data point is usually very large ...

RNA binding proteins (RBPs) can regulate the stability and/or translatability of messengerRNAs (mRNAs) throughinteractions with their 30-untranslated regions. However, individual mRNAs may be regulated simultaneously or successivelyby more than one RBP, as well as by Argonaute (AGO)-bound miRNAs; the coordination of these various influenceson an individual mRNA is therefore complex and not well studied. In this report we examine the roles of two RBPs thatbind to AU-rich elements (ARE) - AUF1 and HuR - in the stability and translation of cyclin D1 (Ccnd1) mRNA in ratmyoblasts transiting the G phase of the cell cycle, and their interactions with miRNAs. Knockdown (KD) of AUF1 resultedin (1) transient upregulation of the mRNA level as well as an advancement of translation onset time (TOT) from 6 to 5 hpost-serum addition, (2) loss of miRNA loading on AGO1 and AGO2 and (3) reduction in the level of AGO-1 and AGO-2bound mRNA. In contrast, KD of HuR had no effect on the mRNA level, or on the AGO-mRNA ...

An alternative essential proapoptotic protein, BAK, was not upregulated by lethal UVB doses in either early or late passage cells . BAK, in contrast to BAX, is not really acknowledged to be a transcriptional target of P. We then examined anti apoptotic proteins. BCL was downregulated by UVB in both early and late passage cells at h submit irradiation . No visible distinction was observed among passage amounts. The scenario was quite different for BCL xL. As expected , BCL xL was quickly downregulated in youthful fibroblasts starting at h publish UVB. Strikingly, the basal BCL xL degree in outdated fibroblasts was instead rapidly upregulated following UVB and reached a plateau at h . BCLxL acts by antagonistically binding to pro apoptotic partners such as BAX. We for this reason quantitated the adjust in BAX BCL xL ratio among very low and high passage ranges . In youthful cells , this ratio increased fold h right after UVB however it was unchanged during the old cells . This end result displays ...
Hi Naomi Thanks for the reply. The issue isnt necessarily low expressing genes, but perhaps high expressing genes with a small (ish) fold change. DESeq seems to only report as significant differences that are high fold changes. Contrast this to limma for microarrays, where small fold changes can be reported as significant. For whatever reason, the transcriptomic community have become fixated on two-fold as some kind of standard cut-off. Now, Im not fixated on that, but the example in DESeq reports 428 significant genes with an estimated fold change at FDR 5%, however, NONE of these are in the range -2 : 2. The minimum positive logFC is 2.18 (4.5 fold up-regulation), and the maximum negative logFC is 2.49 (5.65 fold down-regulation). So what I am concerned about is finding genes, either highly or lowly expressed, that are differing by a small fold change - say two-fold.

Here we developed the new TS:YSOG3 reporter and used it along with TS:YSOG2 to characterize PKMζ and PKCλ turnover after cLTP induction in neurons. We found that PKMζ is upregulated following cLTP and that PKMζ copies produced after stimulation localized to synapses. We additionally demonstrated that the turnover of PKMζ copies synthesized after cLTP is more rapid than the turnover of basal PKMζ, both in the neuron cell body and in dendritic spines. These results held for PKMζ fused via its C terminus to TS:YSOG2. Furthermore, we demonstrated that PKCλ remains more stable at synapses than PKMζ and that its turnover is not altered after cLTP. We showed that our TS reporters not only allow identification of new copies of a given protein but also old copies as they degrade over time; this is possible because TS-tagged proteins synthesized during BILN application remain fused to irreversibly complemented YFP that stays stable after BILN washout. Moreover, fusion to TS did not affect PKMζ ...

This unexpected set of observations led the investigators to explore a role for APE1 in regulation of nitric oxide synthase activity. Within the vascular endothelium, endothelial nitric oxide synthase (eNOS) activity is affected by levels of expression and also by well-characterized signaling pathways that activate eNOS. Expression of eNOS cannot be the major determinant of the hypertensive phenotype of APE1+/− mice, because eNOS levels are actually increased in the vessels of these mice in spite of their impaired ability to generate nitric oxide. The effect seems to be at the level of eNOS activation. Based on the data presented in this report it is reasonable to conclude that this is due in part to upregulation of H-Ras, which lies upstream of the phosphoinositide-3 kinase/Akt kinase pathway that potently activates eNOS.. The investigators conclude that increased Akt activation occurs via APE1-dependent upregulation of H-Ras expression, although the effect on H-Ras is modest and other ...
A MADS-box gene, designated PtAP3, was isolated from a floral bud cDNA library derived from Populus tomentosa. Analysis by multiple alignments of both nucleotide and amino acid sequences, together with phylogenetic analysis, revealed that PtAP3 is an ortholog of Arabidopsis AP3. Analysis of RNA extracts from vegetative and reproductive tissues of P. tomentosa by RT-PCR indicated that PtAP3 is expressed in roots, stems, leaves and vegetative and floral buds. Notably, the expression of PtAP3 fluctuated during floral bud development between September and February with differences between male and female buds. In the former, a gradual down-regulation during this period, interrupted by a slight up-regulation in December, was followed by a sharper up-regulation on February. In developing female floral buds, expression was stable from September to November, sharply up-regulated in December, and then gradually down-regulated until February. The functional role of PtAP3 was investigated in transgenic ...
CS1 (CD319) is a member of the SLAM family of receptors, expressed on NK cells, T cells, B cells, DCs, etc. It induces NK cell cytotoxicity and is up regulated on B cell activation. CS1 is aberrantly up regulated on B cells in multiple myeloma and a therapeutic humanized anti-CS1 mAb HuLuc63 (Elotuzumab) is in Phase III of clinical trials. Recently, a unique population of CS1high B cells, implicated as major producers of pathogenic auto antibodies was detected in high SLE disease activity index (SLEDAI) patients. Regression analysis indicated direct correlation between the percentage of CS1high B cells and SLEDAI. With the available information on the pathogenic outcome of CS1 up-regulation on B cells, it is vital to study the molecular basis of CS1 expression. Here, we discuss the transcriptional regulation of mouse CS1 gene. According to our data, mouse CS1 promoter binds to Blimp1, mainly a trans-repressor and the master regulator of B cell maturation. Interestingly, mCS1 promoter also bears ...
FMRP has emerged as a central player in the regulation of protein synthesis-dependent synaptic plasticity. However, we know very little about how FMRP expression itself may be regulated as a function of neural activity in vivo, particularly during the time course over which major changes in synaptic reorganization occur. To address this question, we have determined the role of visual experience in regulating FMRP expression in the visual cortex of DR/LE rats. The most striking finding is that experience induces a rapid but transient expression of FMRP in this system. Furthermore, this transient upregulation of FMRP is observed in both dendrites and cell bodies and requires NMDA receptor activation. Our findings suggest that FMRP plays a dynamic role in experience-induced plasticity, especially during the first 15 min of synaptic reorganization.. We used both biochemical and immunohistochemical methods to study experience-dependent FMRP regulation. Immunolocalization revealed that, 15 min after ...

Thus we questioned whether IL-4-producing CD8 T cells would be induced in vivo in response to primary immunization with alum-precipitated protein. The approach has been to compare the polarization of transgenic naïve ovalbumin-specific CD4 (OTII) and CD8 (OTI) T cells during their response to alum-precipitated ovalbumin (alumOVA). By addressing this question we have obtained further insight into the way early Th2-features are acquired by CD4 T cells in vivo in response to alum-precipitated protein.. Although both CD4 and CD8 OVA-specific T cells proliferate (30) in response to alumOVA, the acquisition of Th2-features, such as IL-4 and IL-13 mRNA up-regulation, is exclusively confined to CD4 T cells (Fig. 2). In addition, we confirm that mRNA specific for IL-17RB is strongly induced in vivo in alumOVA-responding OTII cells, but not in OTI cells responding to the same antigen (Fig. 2).. Conclusions. These findings indicate that the induction of IL-17RB expression is a selective feature of CD4 T ...
