Frontiers in microbiology, 10, 2962-2962 (2020-01-24)
Viruses have evolved many mechanisms to escape host antiviral responses. Previously, we found that classical swine fever virus (CSFV) infection induces autophagy using the autophagosome as a self-replication site, thereby evading the host immune response and promoting long-term infection. However

Phosphorylation of intrinsically disordered eIF4E binding proteins (4E-BPs) regulates cap-dependent translation by weakening their ability to compete with eIF4G for eIF4E binding within the translation initiation complex. We previously showed that phosphorylation of T37 and T46 in 4E-BP2 induces folding

Cancer & metabolism, 8, 1-1 (2020-01-08)
Metabolic programs in cancer cells are influenced by genotype and the tissue of origin. We have previously shown that central carbon metabolism is rewired in pancreatic ductal adenocarcinoma (PDA) to support proliferation through a glutamate oxaloacetate transaminase 1 (GOT1)-dependent pathway.

Psychostimulants show therapeutic efficacy in the treatment of attention-deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD). It is generally assumed that they ameliorate ADHD symptoms via interfering with monoaminergic signaling. We combined behavioral pharmacology, neurochemistry and molecular analyses to identify mechanisms underlying the paradoxical

Bio-protocol, 5(7) (2015-04-05)
Bacterial glycoproteins are of increasing interest due to their abundance in nature and importance in health and infectious diseases. However, only a very small fraction of bacterial glycoproteins have been characterized and its post-translational modification machinery identified. While analysis of

Autophagy, 15(2), 280-294 (2018-09-11)
The involvement of macroautophagy/autophagy proteins in B-cell receptor (BCR) trafficking, although suspected, is not well understood. We show that ATG5 (autophagy related 5) contributes to BCR polarization after stimulation and internalization into LAMP1 (lysosomal-associated membrane protein 1)+ and major histocompatibility

Biological procedures online, 10, 1-8 (2008-04-04)
Activation of lymphocytes in mammals is often quantified by measuring the amount of proliferation during the expansion phase of an immune response. Bromodeoxyuridine (BrdU) incorporation and carboxyfluorescein diacetate succinimidyl ester (CFSE) dilution assays are some of the techniques widely used

Poly(ADP-ribose) polymerase 1 (PARP-1) and glycohydrolase (PARG) enzymes regulate chromatin structure, transcription activation, and DNA repair by modulating poly(ADP-ribose) (pADPr) level. Interest in PARP-1 inhibitors has soared recently with the recognition of their antitumor efficacy. We have shown that the

Autophagy, 15(3), 407-422 (2018-09-14)
Glucose produced from photosynthesis is a key nutrient signal regulating root meristem activity in plants; however, the underlying mechanisms remain poorly understood. Here, we show that, by modulating reactive oxygen species (ROS) levels, the conserved macroautophagy/autophagy degradation pathway contributes to
