Nasopharyngeal carcinoma (NPC) is a major cause of cancer deaths. Concurrent administration of radiation and chemotherapy is the treatment of choice for advanced NPC. Previously, we showed that apogossypolone (ApoG2) induced apoptosis by blocking the binding of Bcl-2 to Bax...

Helix B surface peptide (HBSP), derived from erythropoietin, displays powerful tissue protection during kidney ischemia reperfusion (IR) injury without erythropoietic side effects. We employed cyclization strategy for the first time, and synthesized thioether-cyclized helix B peptide (CHBP) to improve metabolic...

There is still no treatment for polyglutamine disorders, but clearance of mutant proteins might represent a potential therapeutic strategy. Autophagy, the major pathway for organelle and protein turnover, has been implicated in these diseases. To determine whether the autophagy/lysosome system...

TDP-43 (also known as TARDBP) is a pathological signature protein of neurodegenerative diseases, with TDP-43 proteinopathies including frontotemporal lobar degeneration (FTLD)-TDP and amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS)-TDP. These TDP-43 proteinopathies are characterized by cytoplasmic insoluble TDP-43-positive aggregates in the diseased cells...

Annexin A3 (Anxa3) is a member of the calcium-regulated, cell membrane-binding family of annexin proteins. We previously confirmed that Anxa3 is expressed in the endothelial lineage in vertebrates and that loss of anxa3 in Xenopus laevis leads to embryonic blood...

Autophagy has been implicated in lipid droplet (LD) turnover. Adipose differentiation-related protein (ADRP) and microtubule-associated protein 1 light chain 3 (LC3) monitor LD and autophagosomes, respectively. We examined whether immunohistochemical staining of ADRP and LC3 can monitor LD and autophagy...

Lipofuscin, or aging pigment, is accreted as red autofluorescence in the lysosomes of motor neuron cell bodies in the ventral horn of WT mice by 3 mo of age. Strikingly, in two presymptomatic ALS mouse strains transgenic for mutant human...

Angiogenesis is a complex process that is regulated by a variety of angiogenic activators and inhibitors. Disruption of the balanced angiogenesis leads to the progress of diseases such as tumor growth, rheumatoid arthritis, and various blood vessel-related disorders. Even though...

Annexin A3 is a protein belonging to the annexin family, and it is mainly present in cellular membranes as a phospholipid-binding protein that binds via the calcium ion. However, its physiological function remains to be clarified. We examined the expression...

Recent research has revealed a role for Ambra1, an autophagy-related gene-related (ATG) protein, in the autophagic pro-survival response, and Ambra1 has been shown to regulate Beclin1 and Beclin1-dependent autophagy in embryonic stem cells and cancer cells. However, whether Ambra1 plays...

The roles of annexin A3 (ANXA3) in macrophages are not fully understood. In contrast to C5a, we have demonstrated that C-terminal ribosomal protein S19 (RP S19)-tagged S-tagged C5a (S-tagged C5a/RP S19) raises an alternative cytoplasmic calcium oscillation by extracellular calcium...

Alcohol-induced injury has become one of the major causes for liver cirrhosis. However, the molecular mechanisms of ethanol-induced injury are not fully understood. To this end, we performed a dynamic plasma membrane proteomic research on rat model. A rat model...

Mitochondria dysfunction is implicated in diverse conditions, including metabolic and neurodegenerative disorders. Mitochondrial dynamics has attracted increasing attention as to its relationship with mitochondria autophagy, also known as mitophagy, which is critical for degradation of dysfunctional mitochondria maintaining mitochondrial homeostasis....

Parkin is an E3 ubiquitin ligase involved in the elimination of damaged mitochondria. Ubiquitination of mitochondrial substrates by Parkin results in proteasomal as well as lysosomal degradation of mitochondria, the latter of which is executed by the autophagy machinery and...

Recent clinical trials report that metformin, an activator of AMP-activated protein kinase (AMPK) used to treat type 2 diabetes, significantly reduces the risk of stroke by actions that are independent of its glucose-lowering effects. However, the underlying molecular mechanisms are...

Amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS) is a disease caused by motor neuron degeneration. Recently, a novel SIGMAR1 gene variant (p.E102Q) was discovered in some familial ALS patients. We address mechanisms underlying neurodegeneration caused by the mutation using Neuro2A cells overexpressing σ1R(E102Q)...
