Pharmacological inhibition of IKKβ dampens NLRP3 inflammasome activation after priming in the human myeloid cell line THP-1

15 views | Mar 25 2021

Adeline Unterreiner et al. suggested that IκKβ might fulfill a dual role in coupling priming and activation of the NLRP3 inflammasome. [Read the Full Post]

EGR1 knockdown alleviates the cerebral injury in rats with intracerebral hemorrhage (ICH) via STAT3/NF-κB pathway by reducing RXRα acetylation level

25 views | Feb 23 2021

Lijuan Xie et al. found that EGR1 increased RXRα acetylation level by regulating p300, thereby aggravating brain damage in ICH rat model and dysfunction in BMECs, which might through the STAT3/NF-κB pathway. [Read the Full Post]

STAT3 Is an Upstream Regulator of Granzyme G in the Maternal-To-Zygotic Transition of Mouse Embryos

24 views | Feb 05 2021

Huan Ou-Yang et al. suggested that STAT3, a maternal protein, was a critical transcription factor and regulated Gzmg transcription activity in preimplantation mouse embryos. [Read the Full Post]

To inhibit TrxR1 is to inactivate STAT3-Inhibition of TrxR1 enzymatic function by STAT3 small molecule inhibitors

41 views | Oct 29 2020

Sander Busker et al. suggested that targeting of TrxR1 might be a common feature for many small molecules that inhibited cellular STAT3 function. [Read the Full Post]

A study of human leukocyte antigen-haploidentical hematopoietic stem cells transplantation combined with allogenic mesenchymal stem cell infusion for treatment of severe aplastic anemia in pediatric and adolescent patients

68 views | Sep 29 2020

Li Ding et al. suggested that cotransplantation of HLA-haploidentical HSC and allogenic mesenchymal stem cell might provide an effective and safe treatment for children and adolescents with SAA who lacked matched donors. [Read the Full Post]

Xanthatin alleviates airway inflammation in asthmatic mice by regulating the STAT3/NF-κB signaling pathway

61 views | Sep 28 2020

Jingxia Chang et al. concluded that Xanthatin attenuated airway inflammation in asthmatic mice through blocking the STAT3/NFκB signaling pathway, indicating the potential of Xanthatin as a useful therapeutic agent for asthma. [Read the Full Post]

0 views | Jan 05 2020

Hubbard JM and Grothey A indicated that napabucasin may prove useful in targeting cancer stem cells, with the potential to suppress metastasis and prevent relapse in patients with varying cancer types. [Read the Full Post]

Fludarabine-PET in a murine model of multiple myeloma

342 views | Dec 08 2019

Hovhannisyan N et al. suggested that [18F]fludarabine-PET might represent an alternative and perhaps more specific modality for MM imaging when compared to [18F]FDG. Nevertheless, more investigations are required to extend this conclusion to humans. [Read the Full Post]

Pre-metastatic niche triggers SDF-1/CXCR4 axis and promotes organ colonisation by hepatocellular circulating tumour cells via downregulation of Prrx1

230 views | Dec 04 2019

Tang Y et al. demonstrated that decreased expression of Prrx1 stimulates SDF-1/CXCR4 signalling and contributes to organ colonisation with blood CTCs in HCC. STAT3 inhibition and specific blockade of CXCR4 have clinical potential as therapeutics for eliminating organ metastasis in advanced HCC. [Read the Full Post]

Regulation of Skeletal Muscle DRP-1 and FIS-1 Protein Expression by IL-6 Signaling

375 views | Jun 03 2019

Fix DK et al. elevated IL-6 can directly induce DRP-1 and FIS-1 expression through gp130 signaling in cultured myotubes and skeletal muscle. Furthermore, ERK 1/2 signaling is necessary for the IL-6 induction of DRP-1 and FIS-1 expression in myotubes. [Read the Full Post]
