Mitoribosomal defects aggravate liver cancer via aberrant glycolytic flux and T cell exhaustion.

J Immunother Cancer 2022 May;10(5)

Department of Core Laboratory of Translational Research, Biomedical Convergence Research Center, Chungnam National University Hospital, Daejeon, South Korea

Background: Mitochondria are involved in cancer energy metabolism, although the mechanisms underlying the involvement of mitoribosomal dysfunction in hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC) remain poorly understood. Here, we investigated the effects of mitoribosomal impairment-mediated alterations on the immunometabolic characteristics of liver cancer.

Methods: We used a mouse model of HCC, liver tissues from patients with HCC, and datasets from The Cancer Genome Atlas (TCGA) to elucidate the relationship between mitoribosomal proteins (MRPs) and HCC. Read More

Department of Hepatopancreatobiliary Surgery, Second Affiliated Hospital of Harbin Medical University, Harbin 150086, China.

Inositol 1,4,5-Triphosphate Receptor Family (ITPRs) are necessary intracellular Ca2+-release channel encoders and participate in mammalian cell physiological and pathological processes. Previous studies have suggested that ITPRs participate in tumorigenesis of multiple cancers. Nevertheless, the diverse expression profiles and prognostic significance of three ITPRs in pancreatic cancer have yet to be uncovered. Read More

Directing LRRK2 to membranes of the endolysosomal pathway triggers RAB phosphorylation and JIP4 recruitment.

Neurobiol Dis 2022 May 14:105769. Epub 2022 May 14.

Cell Biology and Gene Expression Section, Laboratory of Neurogenetics, National Institute on Aging, National Institutes of Health, Bethesda, MD 20892-3707, USA. Electronic address:

Coding mutations in the Leucine-rich repeat kinase 2 (LRRK2) gene, which are associated with dominantly inherited Parkinson's disease (PD), lead to an increased activity of the encoded LRRK2 protein kinase. As such, kinase inhibitors are being considered as therapeutic agents for PD. It is therefore of interest to understand the mechanism(s) by which LRRK2 is activated during cellular signaling.

Autosomal dominant and sporadic late onset Alzheimer disease share a common in vivo pathophysiology.

Brain 2022 May 17. Epub 2022 May 17.

Department of Radiology, Washington University School of Medicine; St. Louis, MO, USA.

The extent to which the pathophysiology of autosomal dominant Alzheimer disease corresponds to the pathophysiology of "sporadic" late onset Alzheimer disease is unknown, thus limiting the extrapolation of study findings and clinical trial results in autosomal dominant Alzheimer disease to late onset Alzheimer disease. We compared brain magnetic resonance imaging and amyloid positron emission tomography data, as well as cerebrospinal fluid concentrations of amyloid-beta-42, amyloid-beta-40, tau, and tau phosphorylated at position 181, in 292 carriers of pathogenic variants for Alzheimer disease from the Dominantly Inherited Alzheimer Network with corresponding data from 559 participants from the Alzheimer's Disease Neuroimaging Initiative. Imaging data and cerebrospinal fluid samples were reprocessed as appropriate to guarantee uniform pipelines and assays. Read More

Sperm DNA integrity is critically impacted by male age but does not influence outcomes of artificial insemination by husband in the Chinese infertile couples.

Aging (Albany NY) 2022 May 17;14(undefined). Epub 2022 May 17.

Department of Obstetrics and Gynecology, Key Laboratory for Major Obstetric Diseases of Guangdong Province, The Third Affiliated Hospital of Guangzhou Medical University, Guangzhou 510150, China.

The sperm chromatin structure assay (SCSA) is crucial for assessing male fertility. However, the predictive value of the SCSA parameters, including the DNA fragment indices (DFI) and the percentages of high DNA stainability (HDS), for outcomes of artificial insemination by husband (AIH) remains controversial. This study aims to evaluate the correlations between SCSA parameters and male aging as well as other routine semen parameters, and explore their prognostic powers on AIH outcomes of the Chinese infertile couples.

Attribution of Cancer Origins to Endogenous, Exogenous, and Preventable Mutational Processes.

Mol Biol Evol 2022 May;39(5)

Program in Computational Biology and Bioinformatics, Yale University, New Haven, CT, USA.

Mutational processes in tumors create distinctive patterns of mutations, composed of neutral "passenger" mutations and oncogenic drivers that have quantifiable effects on the proliferation and survival of cancer cell lineages. Increases in proliferation and survival are mediated by natural selection, which can be quantified by comparing the frequency at which we detect substitutions to the frequency at which we expect to detect substitutions assuming neutrality. Most of the variants detectable with whole-exome sequencing in tumors are neutral or nearly neutral in effect, and thus the processes generating the majority of mutations may not be the primary sources of the tumorigenic mutations.

DNA-PKcs-dependent phosphorylation of RECQL4 promotes NHEJ by stabilizing the NHEJ machinery at DNA double-strand breaks.

Nucleic Acids Res 2022 May 17. Epub 2022 May 17.

Department of Radiation Oncology, UT Southwestern Medical Center, Dallas, TX 75390, USA.

Non-homologous end joining (NHEJ) is the major pathway that mediates the repair of DNA double-strand breaks (DSBs) generated by ionizing radiation (IR). Previously, the DNA helicase RECQL4 was implicated in promoting NHEJ, but its role in the pathway remains unresolved. In this study, we report that RECQL4 stabilizes the NHEJ machinery at DSBs to promote repair. Read More

Senescence-associated morphological profiles (SAMPs): an image-based phenotypic profiling method for evaluating the inter and intra model heterogeneity of senescence.

Aging (Albany NY) 2022 May 16;14(undefined). Epub 2022 May 16.

Blizard Institute of Cell and Molecular Science, Barts and The London School of Medicine and Dentistry, Queen Mary University of London, London, UK.

Senescence occurs in response to a number of damaging stimuli to limit oncogenic transformation and cancer development. As no single, universal senescence marker has been discovered, the confident classification of senescence induction requires the parallel assessment of a series of hallmarks. Therefore, there is a growing need for "first-pass" tools of senescence identification to streamline experimental workflows and complement conventional markers. Read More

A Single Dose of BNT162b2 mRNA Vaccine Induces Airway Immunity in SARS-CoV-2 Naive and recovered COVID-19 subjects.

Clin Infect Dis 2022 May 17. Epub 2022 May 17.

Université Côte d'Azur, Centre Hospitalier Universitaire de Nice, Department of Pulmonary Medicine and Thoracic Oncology, FHU OncoAge, Nice, France.

Background: Mucosal antibodies can prevent virus entry and replication in mucosal epithelial cells and hence virus shedding. Parenteral booster injection of a vaccine against a mucosal pathogen promotes stronger mucosal immune responses following prior mucosal infection compared to injections of a parenteral vaccine in a mucosally naive subject. We investigated whether this was also the case for the BNT162b2 COVID-19 mRNA vaccine. Read More

J Cogn Neurosci 2022 May 10:1-21. Epub 2022 May 10.

McGill University, Montréal, Quebéc, Canada.

Aging is associated with episodic memory decline and changes in functional brain connectivity. Understanding whether and how biological sex influences age- and memory performance-related functional connectivity has important theoretical implications for the cognitive neuroscience of memory and aging. Here, we scanned 161 healthy adults between 19 and 76 years of age in an event-related fMRI study of face-location spatial context memory. Read More

Multidimensional frailty and quality of life: data from the English Longitudinal Study of Ageing.

Qual Life Res 2022 May 17. Epub 2022 May 17.

Department of Geriatric Care, Orthogeriatrics and Rehabilitation, E.O. Ospedali Galliera, Genoa, Italy.

Purpose: Frailty has been found to be associated with poor quality of life (QoL) in older people, but data available are limited to cross-sectional studies. We therefore aimed to assess the association between multidimensional frailty, determined by Multidimensional Prognostic Index (MPI), with mortality and good QoL expectancy (GQoLE) in a large representative sample of older adults, over 10 years of follow-up.

Methods: In the English Longitudinal Study of Ageing, using the data from 2004-2005 and 2014-2015, MPI was calculated using a weighted score of domains of comprehensive geriatric assessment, i. Read More
