Scientists report that a positive modulator of canonical WNT signaling pathway, RSPO-LGR4, upregulates key self-renewal genes and is essential for leukemia stem cell self-renewal in a subset of acute myeloid leukemia.

Researchers showed that S100A6 regulated intracellular and mitochondria calcium buffering of HSC upon cytokine stimulation and have demonstrated that Akt activator SC79 reverted the levels of intracellular and mitochondrial calcium in HSC.

The authors isolated a mouse strain with a single missense mutation, MlklD139V, that altered the two-helix ‘brace’ that connects the killer four-helix bundle and regulatory pseudokinase domains.

Scientists analyzed the expression and clinical significance of Y-box binding protein 1 and markers of autophagy in NSCLC and examined their roles in regulating sensitivity to cisplatin in NSCLC.

Investigators determined the specific localization of Porphyromonas gingivalis in relation to mouse and human pancreatic α- and β-cells using 3-D confocal and immunofluorescence microscopy and orthogonal analyses.

Scientists uncovered sequence-specific changes in RNA splicing enforced by mutant p53 which enhanced KRAS activity. Mutant p53 increased expression of splicing regulator hnRNPK to promote inclusion of cytosine-rich exons within GTPase-activating proteins, negative regulators of RAS family members.

Scientists found that active RhoA and ROCK effector phospho-myosin light chain (pMLC) were downregulated in endothelial cells by severe hypoxia. CA4P failed to activate RhoA/ROCK/pMLC but its activity was restored upon reoxygenation.

Both endogenous nitric oxide (NO) from endothelial NO synthase and exogenous NO from NO donor compounds decreased soluble guanylate cyclase (sGC) protein and activity.

Investigators tested the therapeutic concept that chimeric antigen receptor (CAR) T cells that target senescent cells could be effective senolytic agents. They identified the urokinase-type plasminogen activator receptor (uPAR)11 as a cell-surface protein that is broadly induced during senescence and showed that uPAR-specific CAR T cells efficiently ablated senescent cells in vitro and in vivo.

Investigators examined the transcriptomic profile of adipose-resident eosinophils and posit that KLF3 regulates adipose tissue function via transcriptional control of secreted molecules linked to beiging.

Investigators found that human and mouse macrophages underwent a switch to glycolysis in response to IgG immune complex stimulation, mirroring macrophage metabolic changes in inflamed tissue in vivo. This metabolic reprogramming was required to generate a number of proinflammatory mediators, including IL-1β, and was dependent on mTOR and hypoxia-inducible factor-1α.
