Synthetic biology is transforming therapeutic paradigms by engineering living cells and microbes to intelligently sense and respond to diseases including inflammation, infections, metabolic disorders, and cancer. However, the ability to rapidly engineer new therapies far outpaces the throughput of animal-based testing regimes, creating a major bottleneck for clinical translation. In vitro approaches to address this challenge have been limited in scalability and broad applicability. Read More

Copper-induced expression of a transmissible lipoprotein intramolecular transacylase alters lipoprotein acylation and the Toll-like receptor 2 response to .

J Bacteriol 2019 Apr 15. Epub 2019 Apr 15.

Department of Biochemistry and Molecular Biology, The Pennsylvania State University, University Park, Pennsylvania, USA

Bacterial lipoproteins are globular proteins anchored to the extracytoplasmic surfaces of cell membranes through lipidation at a conserved -terminal cysteine. Lipoproteins contribute to an array of important cellular functions for bacteria, as well as being a focal point for innate immune system recognition through binding to Toll-like receptor 2 (TLR2) heterodimer complexes. Although lipoproteins are conserved among nearly all classes of bacteria, the presence and type of α-amino-linked acyl chain is highly variable and even strain specific within a given bacterial species.

Department of Biological Sciences, North Carolina State University, Raleigh, NC

RIPK3, a key mediator of necroptosis, has been implicated in the host defense against viral infection primary in immune cells. However, gene expression analysis revealed that RIPK3 is abundantly expressed not only in immune organs but also in the gastrointestinal tract, particularly in the small intestine. We found that orally inoculated , a bacterial foodborne pathogen, efficiently spread and caused systemic infection in -deficient mice while almost no dissemination was observed in wild-type mice.

Immune effects of glycolysis or oxidative phosphorylation metabolic pathway in protecting against bacterial infection.

J Cell Physiol 2019 Apr 10. Epub 2019 Apr 10.

Department of Immunology, School of Basic Medical Sciences, Fudan University, Shanghai, China.

The metabolism of immune cells reprograms inflammatory responses to protect against infection by pathogenic microorganisms, but the immune effects of glycolysis and the oxidative phosphorylation (OXPHOS) metabolic pathway remain unclear. Herein, the effects of glycolysis or OXPHOS on the neutrophils and T cells were investigated using a pharmacological approach in mice. 2-Deoxy-d-glucose (2-DG), which blocks the key enzyme hexokinase of glycolysis, and dimethyl malonate (DMM), which blocks the key element succinate of OXPHOS, both efficiently expanded the population of neutrophils, but significantly inhibited tumor necrosis factor a secretion and reactive oxygen species (ROS) production.

Department of Biology, Indiana State University, Terre Haute, Indiana 47809

Cyclic di-adenosine monophosphate (c-di-AMP) is a recently discovered second messenger in bacteria. The cellular level of c-di-AMP in is predicted to be controlled by the synthase DacA and two putative phosphodiesterases, GdpP and Pde2. To investigate the role of c-di-AMP in , we generated null mutants in each of these proteins by gene deletion. Read More
