MCPIP1-Mediated NFIC Alternative Splicing Inhibits Proliferation of Triple-Negative Breast Cancer via Cyclin D1-RB-E2F1 Axis

Investigators showed that monocyte chemotactic protein induced protein 1 (MCPIP1) was downregulated in 80 TNBC tissues and five TNBC cell lines compared to adjacent paracancerous tissues and one human immortalized breast epithelial cell line, while its high expression levels were associated with increased overall survival in TNBC patients.

Endothelial Dysfunction and Immunothrombosis as Key Pathogenic Mechanisms in COVID-19

Scientists propose that SARS-CoV-2 infection induces a process known as immunothrombosis, in which activated neutrophils and monocytes interact with platelets and the coagulation cascade, leading to intravascular clot formation in small and larger vessels.

Ontogenic Shifts in Cellular Fate Are Linked to Proteotype Changes in Lineage-Biased Hematopoietic Progenitor Cells

Through deep coverage of the cellular proteome of fetal and adult lympho-myeloid multipotent progenitors, common lymphoid progenitors, and granulocyte-monocyte progenitors, researchers established that features traditionally attributed to adult hematopoiesis were conserved across lymphoid and myeloid lineages.
