Pericyte-specific expression of RGs5: implications for PDGF and EDG receptor signaling during vascular maturation

RGS proteins finely tune heterotrimeric G-protein signaling. Implying the need for such fine-tuning in the developing vascular system, in situ hybridization revealed a striking and extensive expression pattern of Rgs5 in the arterial walls of...

Recognition of a novel stage of betaherpesvirus latency in human herpesvirus 6

Latency-associated transcripts of human herpesvirus 6 (H6LTs) (K. Kondo et al. J. Virol. 76:4145-4151, 2002) were maximally expressed at a fairly stable intermediate stage between latency and reactivation both in vivo and in vitro. H6LTs functioned...

ARF6 stimulates clathrin/AP-2 recruitment to synaptic membranes by activating phosphatidylinositol phosphate kinase type I gamma

Clathrin-mediated endocytosis of synaptic vesicle membranes involves the recruitment of clathrin and AP-2 adaptor complexes to the presynaptic plasma membrane. Phosphoinositides have been implicated in nucleating coat assembly by directly binding to...

Interactions of human myosin Va isoforms, endogenously expressed in human melanocytes, are tightly regulated by the tail domain

Primary human epidermal melanocytes express six endogenous isoforms of the human actin-associated myosin Va motor protein, involved in organelle transport. As isoforms containing exon F are most abundant in melanocytes, we hypothesized that these...

Histamine enhances TGF-beta1-mediated suppression of TH2 responses

Susceptibility of T cells to TGF-beta1 produced by regulatory T cells has an important impact on the induction and maintenance of peripheral tolerance and therefore on the development of autoimmunity, cancer, and allergy. Histamine not only mediates...

Shear stress-induced endothelial cell polarization in mediated by Rho and Rac but not Cdc42 or PI 3-kinase

Shear stress induces endothelial polarization and migration in the direction of flow accompanied by extensive remodeling of the actin cytoskeleton. The GTPases RhoA, Rac1, and Cdc42 are known to regulate cell shape changes through effects on the...

SARA and Hgs attenuate susceptibility to TGF-beta1-mediated T cell supression

Transforming growth factor-beta1 (TGF-beta1) is a pluripotent cytokine that controls peripheral T cell tolerance mainly in mucosal immunity. It is secreted by regulatory T cells (Tr /Th3) but also by other immununologically active cells. Smad anchor...

Supression of endothelial adhesion molecule up-regulation with cyclopentenone prostaglandins is dissociated from IkappaB kinase inhibition and cell death induction

The cyclopentenone prostaglandins (cPG) 15-deoxy-Delta12,14-prostaglandin J2 (dPGJ2) and PGA1 can inhibit multiple steps in nuclear factor (NF)-kappaB signaling and can induce cell death. Here we characterized the effects of dPGJ2 and PGA1 on the...

IL-10-inducible Bcl-3 negatively regulates LPS-induced TNF-alpha production in macrophages

Interleukin-10 (IL-10) plays an important role in prevention of chronic inflammation in vivo. However, the molecular mechanism by which IL-10 exerts its anti-inflammatory response is poorly understood. Here, we performed a microarray analysis and...

The steroidal analog GW707 activates the SREBP pathway through disruption of intracellular cholesterol trafficking

Recently, a new class of lipid-lowering agents has been described that upregulate LDL receptor (LDLr) activity. These agents are proposed to activate sterol-regulated gene expression through binding to the sterol regulatory element binding protein...
