Prolonged use of opioids causes analgesic tolerance and adverse effects including constipation and dependence. Compounds targeting imidazoline I2 receptors are known to potentiate opioid analgesia in rodents. We investigated whether combination with the I2 receptor ligand CR4056 could improve efficacy

Fibroproliferative disorders result in excessive scar formation, are associated with high morbidity, and cost billions of dollars every year. Of these, keloid disease presents a particularly challenging clinical problem because the cutaneous scars progress beyond the original site of injury.

Likely pathogenic/pathogenic variants in genes encoding desmosomal proteins play an important role in the pathophysiology of arrhythmogenic right ventricular cardiomyopathy (ARVC). However, for a substantial proportion of ARVC patients, the genetic substrate remains unknown. We hypothesized that plectin, a cytolinker
Jun Tan et al.
Nucleic acids research, 48(3), 1285-1300 (2019-11-30)
Reactive oxygen species (ROS) inflict multiple types of lesions in DNA, threatening genomic integrity. How cells respond to ROS-induced DNA damage at telomeres is still largely unknown. Here, we show that ROS-induced DNA damage at telomeres triggers R-loop accumulation in
Daniele Vergara et al.
Frontiers in physiology, 8, 544-544 (2017-08-12)
β-catenin plays an important role as regulatory hub in several cellular processes including cell adhesion, metabolism, and epithelial mesenchymal transition. This is mainly achieved by its dual role as structural component of cadherin-based adherens junctions, and as a key nuclear
Francesca Grisan et al.
Cell death and differentiation, 28(8), 2436-2449 (2021-03-21)
Autophagy is a highly regulated degradative process crucial for maintaining cell homeostasis. This important catabolic mechanism can be nonspecific, but usually occurs with fine spatial selectivity (compartmentalization), engaging only specific subcellular sites. While the molecular machines driving autophagy are well

E2F transcription factors control the expression of cell-cycle genes. Cancers often demonstrate enhanced E2F target gene expression, which can be explained by increased percentages of replicating cells. However, we demonstrate in human cancer biopsy specimens that individual neoplastic cells display

Pig-to-human xenotransplantation seems to be the response to the contemporary shortage of tissue/organ donors. Unfortunately, the phylogenetic distance between pig and human implies hyperacute xenograft rejection. In this study, we tested the hypothesis that combining expression of human α1,2-fucosyltransferase (hFUT2)
