B-Cell-Intrinsic Type 1 Interferon Signaling Is Crucial for Loss of Tolerance and the Development of Autoreactive B Cells.

Type 1 interferon (T1IFN) signaling promotes inflammation and lupus pathology, but its role in autoreactive B cell development in the antibody-forming cell (AFC) and germinal center (GC) pathways is unclear. Using a lupus model that allows for focused study of the AFC and GC responses, we show that T1IFN signaling is crucial for autoreactive B cell development in the AFC and GC pathways. Through bone marrow chimeras, DNA-reactive B cell transfer, and GC-specific Cre mice, we confirm that IFNαR signaling in...


Modified cells as potential ocular drug delivery systems.

Drug delivery to ocular targets is problematic, especially in retinal disease treatment. Therefore, targeted drug delivery, prolonged drug action, and minimally invasive treatments are needed. In this review, we describe cell technologies for drug delivery. These technologies are based on genetic engineering and nongenetic-based approaches for cell modification. In principle, cell technologies enable targeted delivery, long drug action, and minimally invasive administration, but they have only been sparsely...

The Domino Effect in EGFR-ERK Signaling.

A gradient of EGFR-ERK signaling has been classically implicated in various developmental processes. In this issue of Developmental Cell, Ogura et al. (2018) show that in the Drosophila tracheal placode, EGFR-ERK signaling propagates via a cell-by-cell relay mechanism rather than a gradient, and this sequential ERK activation controls proper placode invagination.


Wnt signaling in development and tissue homeostasis.

The Wnt-β-catenin signaling pathway is an evolutionarily conserved cell-cell communication system that is important for stem cell renewal, cell proliferation and cell differentiation both during embryogenesis and during adult tissue homeostasis. Genetic or epigenetic events leading to hypo- or hyper-activation of the Wnt-β-catenin signaling cascade have also been associated with human diseases such as cancer. Understanding how this pathway functions is thus integral for developing therapies to treat disea...

Comparative Analysis of Regulatory Role of Notch Signaling Pathway in 8 Types Liver Cell During Liver Regeneration.

Notch signaling is closely related to cell proliferation, cell apoptosis, cell fate decisions, DNA damage repair, and so on. However, the exactly regulatory mechanism of Notch signaling pathway in liver regeneration (LR) remains unclear. To reveal the role of Notch signaling pathway in rat liver regeneration, Ingenuity Pathway Analysis (IPA) software and related pathway database were firstly used to construct the Notch signaling pathway in this study. Next, eight type cells with high purity were obtained by...

On the use of abiotic sialic acids to attenuate cell inflammation.

Sialic acid (Sia) residues on cell surface are critical for myriad cellular events such as immunity and inflammation. We herein reported the use of abiotic Sia to raise the thresholds of inflammatory cell responses. Identified from a panel of structurally diversified Sia analogs via a cell inflammation assay, Sia-2, with N-butyryl moiety at C-5, markedly lowered LPS-stimulated NF-κB activity in macrophages. Further analysis shows that Sia-2 attenuates phosphorylation of IκB and Erk1/2/p38/JNK, critical fo...

Integrative analysis of single-cell expression data reveals distinct regulatory states in bidirectional promoters.

Bidirectional promoters (BPs) are prevalent in eukaryotic genomes. However, it is poorly understood how the cell integrates different epigenomic information, such as transcription factor (TF) binding and chromatin marks, to drive gene expression at BPs. Single-cell sequencing technologies are revolutionizing the field of genome biology. Therefore, this study focuses on the integration of single-cell RNA-seq data with bulk ChIP-seq and other epigenetics data, for which single-cell technologies are not yet es...

Binding of EphrinA5 to RET receptor tyrosine kinase: An in vitro study.

Eph/Ephrin signaling pathways are crucial in regulating a large variety of physiological processes during development, such as cell morphology, proliferation, migration and axonal guidance. EphrinA (efn-A) ligands, in particular, can be activated by EphA receptors at cell-cell interfaces and have been proposed to cause reverse signaling via RET receptor tyrosine kinase. Such association has been reported to mediate spinal motor axon navigation, but conservation of the interactive signaling pathway and the m...

Information flow in the presence of cell mixing and signaling delays during embryonic development.

Embryonic morphogenesis is organized by an interplay between intercellular signaling and cell movements. Both intercellular signaling and cell movement involve multiple timescales. A key timescale for signaling is the time delay caused by preparation of signaling molecules and integration of received signals into cells' internal state. Movement of cells relative to their neighbors may introduce exchange of positions between cells during signaling. When cells change their relative positions in a tissue, the ...

Antigen-Presenting Cell-Intrinsic PD-1 Neutralizes PD-L1 in cis to Attenuate PD-1 Signaling in T Cells.

The PD-1 pathway, consisting of the co-inhibitory receptor PD-1 on T cells and its ligand (PD-L1) on antigen-presenting cells (APCs), is a major mechanism of tumor immune evasion. PD-1 and PD-L1 blockade antibodies have produced remarkable clinical activities against a subset of cancers. Binding between T cell-intrinsic PD-1 and APC-intrinsic PD-L1 triggers inhibitory signaling to attenuate the T cell response. Here, we report that PD-1 is co-expressed with PD-L1 on tumor cells and tumor-infiltrating APC...

A Protocol to Study T-Cell Signaling in an Immune Synapse by Microscopy.

The immune synapse is a complex cellular structure that enables cell-cell communications between immune cells, mainly at the interface of an effector T-cell and an antigen-presenting cell (APC) that expresses the appropriate peptide-MHC complexes. With progressive technological advances, there has been increasing interest in understanding molecular events that take place in motile T-lymphocytes at the immune synapse. Here, we provide an optimized method to induce the formation of an immune synapse between a...

UBTOR/KIAA1024 regulates neurite outgrowth and neoplasia through mTOR signaling.

The mTOR signaling pathways regulate cell growth and are involved in multiple human diseases. Here, we identify UBTOR, a previously unannotated gene as a functional player in regulating cell growth and mTOR signaling. Reduction of UBTOR function in cultured hippocampal neurons and PC12 cells promotes neurite outgrowth. UBTOR depletion activates mTOR signaling and promotes cell growth, whilst UBTOR overexpression suppresses colony formation in cancer cell lines. Studies in cultured cells and zebrafish model ...

Cre/lox-controlled spatio-temporal perturbation of FGF signaling in zebrafish.

Spatio-temporal perturbation of signaling pathways in vivo remains challenging and requires precise transgenic control of signaling effectors. Fibroblast Growth Factor (FGF) signaling guides multiple developmental processes including body axis formation and cell fate patterning. In zebrafish, mutants and chemical perturbations affecting FGF signaling have uncovered key developmental processes; however, these approaches cause embryo-wide perturbations, rendering assessment of cell-autonomous versus non-auton...

B Cell Receptor Crosslinking Augments Germinal Center B Cell Selection when T Cell Help Is Limiting.

Antigen-dependent engagement of germinal center (GC) B cell receptors (BCRs) promotes antigen internalization and presentation for follicular helper T cells. However, whether BCR signaling is critical or synergistic with T cell help for GC B cell selection or differentiation is unclear. Here, by adapting an experimental approach that enables independent delivery of BCR-crosslinking antigen or T cell help to GC B cells in vivo, we showed that T cell help was sufficient to induce GC B cell expansion and ...

Co-signaling receptors regulate T-cell plasticity and immune tolerance.

We took an experimental database mining analysis to determine the expression of 28 co-signaling receptors in 32 human tissues in physiological/pathological conditions. We made the following significant findings: co-signaling receptors are differentially expressed in tissues; heart, trachea, kidney, mammary gland and muscle express co-signaling receptors that mediate CD4T cell functions such as priming, differentiation, effector, and memory; urinary tumor, germ cell tumor, leukemia and chondrosarcoma expr...

An optimized protocol to quantify signaling in human transitional B cells by phospho flow cytometry.

Phospho flow cytometry is a powerful technique to analyze signaling in rare cell populations. This technique, however, requires harsh conditions for cell fixation and permeabilization, which can denature surface antigens or antibody-conjugated fluorochromes. These are among several technical limitations which have been a barrier to quantify signaling in unique B cell subsets. One such immature subset, transitional B cells (TrBs), may play a role in suppressing solid organ transplant rejection, graft-versus-...

Achieving greater efficiency and higher confidence in single-cell cloning by combining cell printing and plate imaging technologies.

In recent years, health authorities have increased emphasis on demonstrating that a cell line, which is used for the generation of biologics, is clonally derived. Within the past few years, single-cell manipulation technologies, especially microfluidic drop-on-demand dispensing, have gained increased attention in the biopharmaceutical industry. This work discusses the development and characterization of a single-cell printing workflow followed by plate imaging. By combining single-cell printing and plate im...

How cellular Zn signaling drives physiological functions.

Zinc is an essential micronutrient affecting many aspects of human health. Cellular Zn homeostasis is critical for cell function and survival. Zn, acting as a first or second messenger, triggers signaling pathways that mediate the physiological roles of Zn. Transient changes in Zn concentrations within the cell or in the extracellular region occur following its release from Zn binding metallothioneins, its transport across membranes by the ZnT or ZIP transporters, or release of vesicular Zn. These transient...

Thy-1, a Pathfinder Protein for the Post-genomic Era.

Thy-1 is possibly the smallest of cell surface proteins - 110 amino acids folded into an Immunoglobulin variable domain, tethered to the outer leaflet of the cell surface membrane via just the two saturated fatty acids of its glycosylphosphatidylinositol (GPI) anchor. Yet Thy-1 is emerging as a key regulator of differentiation in cells of endodermal, mesodermal, and ectodermal origin, acting as both a ligand (for certain integrins and other receptors), and as a receptor, able to modulate signaling and hence...

The Tuberin and Cyclin B1 complex functions as a novel G2/M sensor of serum conditions and Akt signaling.

A great deal of ground breaking work has determined that the Tuberin and Hamartin Complex function as a negative regulator of protein synthesis and cell cycle progression through G1/S. This is largely attributed to the GTPase activity of Tuberin that indirectly inhibits the mammalian target of rapamycin (mTOR). During times of ample nutrition Tuberin is inhibited by growth factor signaling, including direct phosphorylation by Akt/PKB, allowing for activation of mTOR and subsequent protein synthesis. It is w...

Unleashing the Therapeutic Potential of CAR-T Cell Therapy Using Gene-Editing Technologies.

Chimeric antigen receptor (CAR) T-cell therapy, an emerging immunotherapy, has demonstrated promising clinical results in hematological malignancies including B-cell malignancies. However, accessibility to this transformative medicine is highly limited due to the complex process of manufacturing, limited options for target antigens, and insufficient anti-tumor responses against solid tumors. Advances in gene-editing technologies, such as the development of Zinc Finger Nucleases (ZFNs), Transcription Activat...

HER2 Signaling Hijacks the Creatine Shuttle to Fuel Breast Cancer Cell Growth.

Alteration of cell energy metabolism represents a major determinant of cancer progression; however, our understanding of oncogenic mechanisms underlying this rewiring remains elusive. In this issue of Cell Metabolism, Kurmi et al. (2018) show that HER2 signaling promotes ABL-mediated phosphorylation of the mitochondrial creatine kinase (MtCK1), providing ATP to support breast tumor growth.

TCR signal strength controls thymic differentiation of iNKT cell subsets.

During development in the thymus, invariant natural killer T (iNKT) cells commit to one of three major functionally different subsets, iNKT1, iNKT2, and iNKT17. Here, we show that T cell antigen receptor (TCR) signal strength governs the development of iNKT cell subsets, with strong signaling promoting iNKT2 and iNKT17 development. Altering TCR diversity or signaling diminishes iNKT2 and iNKT17 cell subset development in a cell-intrinsic manner. Decreased TCR signaling affects the persistence of Egr2 expres...

TGF-β Determines the Pro-migratory Potential of bFGF Signaling in Medulloblastoma.

The microenvironment shapes cell behavior and determines metastatic outcomes of tumors. We addressed how microenvironmental cues control tumor cell invasion in pediatric medulloblastoma (MB). We show that bFGF promotes MB tumor cell invasion through FGF receptor (FGFR) in vitro and that blockade of FGFR represses brain tissue infiltration in vivo. TGF-β regulates pro-migratory bFGF function in a context-dependent manner. Under low bFGF, the non-canonical TGF-β pathway causes ROCK activation and cortical...

Propofol inhibits Wnt signaling and exerts anticancer activity in glioma cells.

Aberrant activation of Wnt signaling is implicated in gliomagenesis. Propofol, the most commonly used intravenous anesthetic agent in clinics, exhibits potent antitumor activity in a variety of cancer cells through different mechanisms. However, the role of propofol on Wnt signaling and glioma cell growth remains to be fully elucidated. In the present study, propofol was identified as a potent inhibitor of Wnt signaling. In 293T cells transfected with Wnt1 or Wnt3 expression plasmids or treated with Wnt3A-c...
