Cancer progression is regulated by multiple factors of extracellular matrix (ECM). Understanding how cancer cells integrate multiple signaling pathways to achieve specific behaviors remains a challenge because of the lack of appropriate models to copresent and modulate ECM properties. Here we proposed a strategy to build a thin biomaterial matrix by poly(l-lysine) and hyaluronan as an artificial stiffness-tunable ECM. Transforming growth factor-beta 1 (TGF-β1) was used as a biochemical cue to present in an...
Nerve growth factor (NGF) contributes to pain in knee osteoarthritis (KOA) patients. Transforming growth factor-beta (TGF-β) stimulates NGF expression in chondrocytes from KOA patients. However, the correlation between synovial TGF-β and NGF levels has not been sufficiently studied in human KOA patients. Further, the mechanism governing NGF regulation by TGF-β in synovial cells is unclear.
Do all 10 human pregnancy-specific beta 1-glycoproteins (PSGs) and murine PSG23 activate latent transforming growth factor-β1 (TGF-β1)?
Abnormal joint instability contributes to cartilage damage and osteophyte formation. We investigated whether controlling joint instability inhibited chronic synovial membrane inflammation and delayed osteophyte formation and examined the role of transforming growth factor-beta (TGF-β) signaling in the associated mechanism.
Glaucoma is a common cause of irreversible blindness. Transforming growth factor beta-1(TGF-β1) is the main isoform of TGF-β superfamily in the eye. Overexpression of TGF-β1 is shown to be related with the glaucoma. Studies have shown that the presence of mutant T allele of TGF-β1 -509C>T polymorphism (rs1800469) is associated with increased gene expression. So, in present study, association of the TGF-β1-509C>T gene polymorphism and primary open angle glaucoma (POAG) in patients from north east of Ira...
Preclinical data suggests that transforming growth factor-β (TGF-β) is arguably the most potent profibrotic growth factor in kidney injury. Despite this, recent clinical trials targeting TGF-β have been disappointing. These negative studies suggest that TGF-β signaling in the injured kidney might be more complicated than originally thought. This review examines recent studies that expand our understanding of how this pleiotropic growth factor affects renal injury.
First description of enhanced expression of transforming growth factor-alpha and glia maturation factor-beta correlate with severity of neuropathology in border disease virus-infected small ruminants.
Border disease is caused by Pestivirus and is characterized by severe neuropathology, and histopathologically observed severe hypomyelination. We have previously shown that small ruminants infected with BDV play an important role for neuropathology and pathogenesis of severe oxidative damage in brain tissue, neural mtDNA; in the production of pathologic levels of nitric oxide; in glial cell activation and stimulation of intrinsic apoptosis pathway. This study aimed to investigate the relationship between gl...
Transforming growth factor beta (TGF-beta) and Chloride channel-3 (CLC-3) are critical for inflammatory response, cellular proliferation and apoptosis in hippocampus neurons. However, the relationship between CLC-3 and TGF-beta/TGF-beta Receptor II (RII) pathway in diabetic encephalopathy (DE) is unknown. In this study, both diabetes rat model and diabetes cell model were employed to elucidate the mechanisms involved. The increased expressions of CLC-3 and TGF- beta RII with cognitive impairment were observ...
The defensive strategy against hepatitis C virus (HCV) infection depends on two antiviral pathways; interferon (IFN) and transforming growth factor β (TGFβ). We aimed at verifying the relation between TGFβ and IFN antiviral pathways in HCV infection through SMAD7 and IRF3, and whether a possible regulatory role for microRNA-16 (miR16) on the interplay between IFN and TGFβ signaling pathways exists or not.
MYCN and LMO1 amplification are commonly observed in neuroblastoma (NB), which was often accompanied by genetic loss of let-7 microRNA (miRNA). Fibroblast growth factor (FGF) was found to regulate let-7 miRNA expression via FGF receptor substrate 2 (FRS2), which then activates transforming growth factor beta (TGF-β) signaling.
Ultrasound-Targeted Microbubble Destruction Delivery of Insulin-Like Growth Factor 1 cDNA and Transforming Growth Factor Beta Short Hairpin RNA Enhances Tendon Regeneration and Inhibits Scar Formation In Vivo.
Ultrasound-targeted microbubble destruction (UTMD), which has been successfully used for the treatment of many diseases, offers a promising noninvasive approach for target-specific gene delivery. This study investigated the UTMD delivery of insulin-like growth factor 1 (IGF-1) cDNA and transforming growth factor beta (TGF-β) short hairpin RNA for Achilles tendon injury in rats. Briefly, 168 rats with an injured Achilles tendon were randomly divided into seven groups: (1) IGF-1 + UTMD, (2) TGF-β + UTMD, (3...
To investigate the roles and pathways of microRNAs 143 and 145 in transforming growth factor (TGF)-β1-induced human subconjunctival fibrosis.
Transforming growth factor-beta (TGF-β) is a known tumor suppressor, which also exerts a tumor promoting activity at an advanced stage of cancer. Previously, we reported that expression of interferon consensus sequence-binding protein (ICSBP), also known as interferon regulatory factor-8, is positively correlated with TGF-β type I receptor (TGF-β RI) expression in osteosarcoma patient tissues. In this study, we demonstrated that ICSBP upregulated TGF-β RI and induced epithelial-to-mesenchymal transition...
Dermal fibroblasts (dFBs) resist infection by locally differentiating into adipocytes and producing cathelicidin antimicrobial peptide in response to Staphylococcus aureus (S. aureus). Here, we show that neonatal skin was enriched with adipogenic dFBs and immature dermal fat that highly expressed cathelicidin. The pool of adipogenic and antimicrobial dFBs declined after birth, leading to an age-dependent loss of dermal fat and a decrease in adipogenesis and cathelidicin production in response to infection....
Alteration in the density and composition of extracellular matrix (ECM) occurs in tumors. The alterations toward both stiffness and degradation are contributed to tumor growth and progression. Cancer-associated fibroblasts (CAFs) are the main contributors to ECM stiffness and degradation. The cells interact with almost all cells within the tumor microenvironment (TME) that could enable them to modulate ECM components for tumorigenic purposes. Cross-talks between CAFs with cancer cells and macrophage type 2 ...
Preeclampsia (PE) is a pregnancy-specific hypertensive disease whose etiopathogenesis remains unclear.
Esophageal adenocarcinoma (EAC) is resistant to standard chemoradiation treatments and few targeted therapies are available. We used large-scale tissue profiling and pharmacogenetic analyses to identify deregulated signaling pathways in EAC tissues that might be targeted to slow tumor growth or progression.
Relationship between shoulder adhesive capsulitis (AC) and hypercholesterolemia is known. The connecting link might be represented by the correlation between HDL and transforming growth factor beta (TGF-β): normally, HDLs stimulate TGF-β expression; the latter is employed in the development of fibrous tissue. We assess whether the presence of the Apo-A1-G75A-polymorphism, which is correlated to an enhanced HDL function, could be a risk factor for the genesis and severity of AC.
A capillary electrophoresis (CE)-based beta-glucosidase (beta-Glu) immobilized enzyme microreactor (IMER) was constructed for enzyme kinetics study and inhibitor screening with the aid of polydopamine coating. The enzyme kinetic and inhibition studies of beta-Glu were comprehensively evaluated using p-nitrophenyl beta-d-glucopyranoside as a model substrate and castanospermine as a model inhibitor. The Michaelis-Menten constant value of the immobilized beta-Glu in the developed IMER was calculated to be 2.79...
Liver fibrosis is a common pathological response in chronic liver injury. In the pathological process of hepatic injury, signaling pathways associated with hepatic fibrosis, which mediates the repair, proliferation and fibrosis of the liver secrete different cytokines. In these pathways, transforming growth factor beta (TGFβ) and signal transducer and activator of transcription 3 (STAT3) play key roles in the proliferation and activation of hepatic stellate cells (HSCs) and promote epithelial mesenchymal t...
Transforming growth factor-β (TGF-β) is a key profibrotic growth factor that is activated in acute kidney injury (AKI) and associated with cellular responses that lead to the development of chronic kidney disease (CKD). The persistently injured, de-differentiated tubular epithelial cell is an important mediator of the transition from AKI to CKD. TGF-β signaling may perpetuate proximal tubule injury through de-differentiation, cell cycle arrest, and increased susceptibility to apoptosis. In addition, TGF-...
Currently, there is a great clinical demand for biocompatible and robust tissue-engineered tubular scaffolds for use as artificial vascular graft materials. Despite considerable research on vascular scaffolds, there has still been only limited development of scaffold materials possessing both sufficient mechanical strengths and biological effects for vascular application. In this work, we designed a mechanically robust, bilayered scaffold and manufactured it by combining electrospinning (ELSP) and three-dim...
Idiopathic pes equinovarus (clubfoot) is a congenital deformity of the feet and lower legs. Clubfoot belongs to a group of fibro proliferative disorders but its origin remains unknown. Our study aimed to achieve the first complex proteomic comparison of clubfoot contracted tissue of the foot (medial side; n = 16), with non contracted tissue (lateral side; n = 13). We used label free mass spectrometry quantification and immunohistochemistry. Seven proteins were observed to be significantly upregulate...
Fibroproliferative repair phase of the acute respiratory distress syndrome (ARDS) is followed by a restitutio ad integrum of lung parenchyma or by an irreversible lung fibrosis and patients' death. Transforming Growth Factor-β1 (TGF-β1) is involved in collagen production and lung repair. We investigated whether alveolar TGF-β1 was associated with the presence of fibroproliferation and the outcome of ARDS patients.
