Scientists found that the reparative macrophage transition was dictated by B-cell adapter for PI3K (BCAP). Mice harboring a macrophage-specific deletion of BCAP fail to recover from and succumb to dextran sulfate sodium-induced colitis due to prolonged intestinal inflammation and impaired tissue repair.

Investigators determine the phenotypic responses of DMD cardiomyocytes (DMD-iCMs) after long-term exposure to DMD cardiac exosomes. DMD-iCMs were vulnerable to stress, evidenced by production of reactive oxygen species, the mitochondrial membrane potential and cell death levels.

Researchers measured the expression levels of Prokineticin receptor 1 (Prokr1) in the skeletal muscle of mice as well as human skeletal muscle cell‐derived myotubes. Prokineticin 2 (PROK2), a ligand of PROKR1, induced calcium mobilization in a dose‐dependent manner and altered the mRNA levels of 578 genes in PROKR1‐overexpressed HEK293T cells.

Peptidyl-tRNA hydrolase 2 is an underappreciated regulator of adhesion signals and Bcl2 expression. Its key roles in muscle differentiation and integrin-mediated signaling are central to the pathology of a recently identified patient syndrome caused by a cluster of Ptrh2 gene mutations.

Scientists investigated whether miR-590-3p participates in the radioresistance of colorectal cancer (CRC). High expression of miR-590-3p and low expression of CLCA4 was found in both CRC tissues and cell lines.

High expression of miR-590-3p and low expression of CLCA4 was found in both colorectal cancer (CRC) tissues and cell lines. CLCA4 was indicated as a target gene of miR-590-3p. CAF-derived exosomes were extracted and co-cultured with CRC cells which were then exposed to radiation.

In five human NSCLC cell lines tested, histamine receptor H3 (Hrh3) was significantly upregulated. In NSCLC cell lines H1975, H460, and A549, Hrh3 antagonist ciproxifan exerted moderate and concentration-dependent inhibition on the cell growth and induced apoptosis, whereas its agonist RAMH reversed these effects.
