Microbiota-Derived Metabolite Promotes HDAC3 Activity in the Gut

Intestinal exposure to inositol trisphosphate and phytate ingestion both promoted recovery following intestinal damage. Remarkably, inositol trisphosphate also induced growth of patient-derived intestinal organoids, stimulated HDAC3-dependent proliferation, and countered butyrate inhibition of colonic growth.

Src Family Tyrosine Kinases in Intestinal Homeostasis, Regeneration and Tumorigenesis

The authors review recent findings on Src family kinase (SFK) signalling during intestinal homeostasis, regeneration and tumorigenesis. They also describe the key nongenetic mechanisms underlying SFK tumour activities in colorectal cancer, and discuss how these mechanisms could be exploited in therapeutic strategies to target SFK signalling in metastatic colon cancer.

The HIF Target ATG9A is Essential for Epithelial Barrier Function and Tight Junction Biogenesis

Investigators found that lentiviral-mediated knockdown of ATG9A in intestinal epithelial cells prevented epithelial barrier formation by >95% and resulted in significant mislocalization of multiple tight junction proteins.

An Immunohistochemical Prostate Cell Identification Key Indicates that Aging Shifts Procollagen 1A1 Production from Myofibroblasts to Fibroblasts in Dogs Prone to Prostate-Related Urinary Dysfunction

Scientists characterized the regional distribution of prostatic cell types in the young intact dog to enable comparisons with human and mice and they examined how the cellular source of procollagen 1A1 changes with age in intact male dogs.

miR-135a Inhibits Non-Small Cell Lung Cancer Progression by Suppressing RAB1B Expression and the RAS Pathway

Researchers showed that miR-135a was aberrantly downregulated in non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC) cells in comparison with normal bronchial epithelial cells, and the expression of miR-135a inhibited proliferation, invasion and metastasis of NSCLC cells in vitro.

Regenerative Reprogramming of the Intestinal Stem Cell State via Hippo Signaling Suppresses Metastatic Colorectal Cancer

The authors demonstrated that the Hippo kinases LATS1/2 and MST1/2, which inhibited YAP activity, were required for maintaining Wnt signaling and canonical stem cell function.
