Sp110 transcription is induced and required by Anaplasma phagocytophilum for infection of human promyelocytic cells

BACKGROUND: The tick-borne intracellular pathogen, Anaplasma phagocytophilum (Rickettsiales: Anaplasmataceae) causes human granulocytic anaplasmosis after infection of polymorphonuclear leucocytes. The human Sp110 gene is a member of the nuclear body...

A novel role for the nuclear membrane protein emerin in association of the centrosome to the outer nuclear membrane

The type II inner nuclear membrane protein emerin is a component of the LINC complex that connects the nuclear lamina to the actin cytoskeleton. In emerin-null or -deficient human dermal fibroblasts we find that the centrosome is detached from the...

Chlamydia pneumoniae inclusion membrane protein Cpn0585 interacts with multiple Rab GTPases

Chlamydiae are intracellular bacteria that develop within a membrane-bound vacuole called an inclusion. To ensure that the inclusion is a safe niche for chlamydial replication, chlamydiae exploit a number of host cell processes, including...

A mouse model for nonsense mutation bypass therapy shows a dramatic multiday response to geneticin

Aminoglycosides can bypass nonsense mutations and are the prototypic agents for translational bypass therapy (TBT). Initial results demonstrate the need for more potent drugs and an in vivo model system for quantitative assessment of TBT. Herein, we...

Increased levels of transforming growth factor beta receptor type I and up-regulation of matrix gene program: A model of scleroderma

OBJECTIVE: Previously published studies have demonstrated that a majority of systemic sclerosis (SSc) fibroblasts exhibit elevated levels of transforming growth factor beta type I receptor (TGFbetaRI). An experimental model that recapitulates this...

Rapamycin Promotes Vascular Smooth Muscle Cell Differentiation through Insulin Receptor Substrate-1/Phosphatidylinositol 3-Kinase/Akt2 Feedback Signaling

The phenotypic plasticity of mature vascular smooth muscle cells (VSMCs) facilitates angiogenesis and wound healing, but VSCM dedifferentiation also contributes to vascular pathologies such as intimal hyperplasia. Insulin/insulin-like growth factor I...

Compound Heterozygosity for Mutations in LMNA in a Patient with a Myopathic and Lipodystrophic Mandibuloacral Dysplasia Type A Phenotype

Context: Mandibuloacral dysplasia type A [MADA; OMIM#248370] is a rare progeroid syndrome characterised by dysmorphic craniofacial and skeletal features, lipodystrophy and metabolic complications. Most of Italian patients carry the same homozygous...

Kalirin/Trio rho Guanine nucleotide exchange factors regulate a novel step in secretory granule maturation

The molecular mechanisms involved in the maturation of secretory granules, organelles that store hormones and neuropeptides, are poorly understood. As granule content proteins are processed, the composition of granule membranes changes, yielding...

Involvement of integrin-linked kinase in carbon tetrachloride-induced hepatic fibrosis in rats

Integrin-linked kinase (ILK) is a multidomain focal adhesion protein implicated in signal transduction between integrins and growth factor receptors. Although its expression is upregulated in pulmonary and renal fibrosis, its role in the development...
