The 3-Phosphoinositide-Dependent Protein Kinase 1 Inhibits Rod Photoreceptor Development

68 views | Jun 04 2019

Xing T et al. indicated that PDPK-1 and other intrinsic kinases downstream of IGF-1 are key regulators of rod photoreceptor formation. [Read the Full Post]

The expression of endothelin-1 in chronic lymphocytic leukemia is controlled by epigenetic mechanisms and extracellular stimuli

84 views | Jan 31 2019

Martinelli S et al. demonstrated the fundamental role of NF-kB signalling pathway in promoting and maintaining ET-1 expression in CLL cells, both in basal conditions and after CD40 activation. [Read the Full Post]

HCV core protein binds to gC1qR to induce A20 expression and inhibit cytokine production through MAPKs and NF-κB signaling pathways

956 views | May 04 2018

Song X et al. suggested that HCV core protein ligates gC1qR to induce A20 expression in macrophages via P38, JNK and NF-κB signaling pathways, which leads to a low-grade chronic inflammation during HCV infection. It represents a novel mechanism by which HCV usurps the host for persistence. [Read the Full Post]

Reduced expression of CD109 in tumor-associated endothelial cells promotes tumor progression by paracrine interleukin-8 in hepatocellular carcinoma

356 views | May 04 2018

Ye BG et al. indicated that CD109 expression on tumor vessels is a potential prognostic marker for HCC, and its reduced expression on TEC promoted tumor progression by paracrine IL-8. [Read the Full Post]

TGF-β1 activates the canonical NF-κB signaling to promote cell survival and proliferation in dystrophic muscle fibroblasts in vitro.

0 views | Apr 21 2018

Ma ZY et al. suggested that TGF-β1 prevents apoptosis and cell cycle arrest in dystrophic muscle fibroblasts through the canonical NF-κB signaling pathway. [Read the Full Post]

Osteoclast-Primed Foxp3+ CD8 T Cells Induce T-bet, Eomesodermin, and IFN-γ To Regulate Bone Resorption.

0 views | Mar 11 2018

Shashkova EV et al. demonstrated a novel link between NF-κB signaling and induction of IFN-γ in TcREG and establish an important role for IFN-γ in TcREG-mediated protection from bone loss. [Read the Full Post]

Insulin-induced cytokine production in macrophages causes insulin resistance in hepatocytes

456 views | Mar 05 2018

Manowsky J et al. indicated that hyperinsulinemia per se might contribute to the low-grade inflammation prevailing in overweight and obese patients and thereby promote the development of insulin resistance particularly in the liver, because the insulin concentration in the portal circulation is much higher than in all other tissues.

Advanced glycation end products regulate anabolic and catabolic activities via NLRP3-inflammasome activation in human nucleus pulposus cells

679 views | Mar 05 2018

Song Y et al. revealed that accumulation of AGEs in NP tissue may initiate inflammation-related degeneration of the intervertebral disc via activation of the NLRP3 inflammasome. [Read the Full Post]

Overexpression of GAB2 in ovarian cancer cells promotes tumor growth and angiogenesis by upregulating chemokine expression

0 views | Mar 04 2018

Duckworth C et al. suggested that overexpression of GAB2 in ovarian cancer cells promotes tumor growth and angiogenesis by upregulating expression of CXCL1, CXCL2 and CXCL8 that is IKKβ-dependent. Co-targeting IKKβ and PI3K pathways downstream of GAB2 might be a promising therapeutic strategy for ovarian cancer that overexpresses GAB2. [Read the Full Post]

A novel, rapid method to compare the therapeutic windows of oral anticoagulants using the Hill coefficient

1148 views | Feb 17 2018

Zhang Q et al. showed a significant variation among the Hill coefficients, suggesting a similar variation in therapeutic windows among anticoagulants in our assay. [Read the Full Post]
