Z-FL-COCHO, a cathepsin S inhibitor, enhances oxaliplatin-mediated apoptosis through the induction of endoplasmic reticulum stress.

Multiple cancer cells highly express cathepsin S, which has pro-tumoral effects. However, it was previously unknown whether knockdown or a pharmacological inhibitor (ZFL) of cathepsin S acts as an inducer of ER stress. Here, ZFL and knockdown of cathepsin S markedly induced ER stress through the up-regulation of calcium levels in the cytosol. Induction of calcium levels by inhibition of cathepsin ...

Combined Effect of NF-κB Inhibitor and β2-Adrenoreceptor Agonist on Mouse Mortality and Blood Concentration of Proinflammatory Cytokines in Sepsis.

Experiments on random-bred albino mice showed that NF-κB inhibitor (BAY 11-7082) and β2-adrenoreceptor agonist (dexmedetomidine hydrochloride) significantly reduced mouse mortality in 4 and 24 h after sepsis modeling (intraperitoneal administration of E. coli) by reducing blood levels of proinflammatory cytokines TNFα, IL-1β, and IL-6. The combined administration of NF-κB inhibitor and β2-ad...

Influence of Age and Renal Impairment on the Steady State Pharmacokinetics of Filgotinib, a Selective JAK1 Inhibitor.

Filgotinib (GS-6034, formerly GLPG0634) is an oral, selective Janus kinase 1 (JAK1) inhibitor that showed early response and sustained efficacy in patients with rheumatoid arthritis and with Crohn's disease. This paper summarized the impact of age and renal impairment (RI) on pharmacokinetics (PK) of filgotinib and its main metabolite.

Tackling Pseudomonas aeruginosa Virulence by a Hydroxamic Acid-Based LasB Inhibitor.

In search of novel antibiotics to combat the challenging spread of resistant pathogens, bacterial proteases represent promising targets for pathoblocker development. A common motif for protease inhibitors is the hydroxamic acid function, yet this group has often been related to unspecific inhibition of various metalloproteases. In this work, the inhibition of LasB, a harmful zinc metalloprotease s...

Establishment and characterization of melanoma patient-derived xenograft models for preclinical evaluation of novel therapeutics.

Patient-derived xenograft (PDX) models mostly retain the histological and genetic features of their donor tumors, which have been used for investigating various types of cancer. However, PDX models for melanoma, especially acral melanoma, are reported occasionally. We aimed to establish a large panel of melanoma PDX models representing the predominant Asian melanomas. Ninety-three fresh melanoma s...

Soluble VEGFR1 signaling guides vascular patterns into dense branching morphologies.

Vascular patterning is a key process during development and disease. The diffusive decoy receptor sVEGFR1 (sFlt1) is a known regulator of endothelial cell behavior, yet the mechanism by which it controls vascular structure is little understood. We propose computational models to shed light on how vascular patterning is guided by self-organized gradients of the VEGF/sVEGFR1 factors. We demonstrate ...

Cyclin dependent kinase inhibitor 1 C is a female-specific marker of left ventricular function after acute myocardial infarction.

A significant proportion of patients develop left ventricular (LV) remodeling leading to heart failure after acute myocardial infarction (AMI). Being able to identify these patients would represent a step forward towards personalized medicine. The present study aimed to determine the ability of cyclin dependent kinase inhibitor 1C (CDKN1C) to risk stratify AMI patients, in a sex-specific manner.

Epstein-Barr virus miRNA-BART16 modulates cell proliferation by targeting LMP1.

Epstein-Barr virus (EBV) is a ubiquitous oncogenic herpesvirus associated with various human tumors. Latent membrane protein (LMP) 1 is considered a key oncoprotein in some EBV-associated tumors, while it is absent in EBV-associated gastric carcinoma (EBVaGC). In the present study, we did not detect the mRNA or the protein expression of LMP1 in 10 EBVaGC tissue samples, but we found that miRNA-BAR...
