Clin Transl Oncol 2021 May 6. Epub 2021 May 6.

Endocrinology and Nutrition Department, Hospital Clinic Barcelona, University of Barcelona, IDIBAPS, Barcelona, Spain.

Pheochromocytomas and paragangliomas (PPGLs) are rare neuroendocrine tumors that arise from chromaffin cells of the adrenal medulla and the sympathetic/parasympathetic neural ganglia, respectively.

GIPC2 is an endocrine-specific tumor suppressor gene for both sporadic and hereditary tumors of RET- and SDHB-, but not VHL-associated clusters of pheochromocytoma/paraganglioma.

Cell Death Dis 2021 May 4;12(5):444. Epub 2021 May 4.

Institute of Basic Medical Sciences, Chinese Academy of Medical Sciences and School of Basic Medicine, Peking Union Medical College, Beijing, China.

Pheochromocytoma/paraganglioma (PPGL) is an endocrine tumor of the chromaffin cells in the adrenal medulla or the paraganglia. Currently, about 70% of PPGLs can be explained by germline or somatic mutations in several broadly expressed susceptibility genes including RET, VHL, and SDHB, while for the remaining, mainly sporadic cases, the pathogenesis is still unclear. Even for known susceptible genes, how mutations in these mostly ubiquitous genes result in tissue-specific pathogenesis remains unanswered, and why RET-mutated tumors almost always occur in the adrenal while SDHB-mutated tumors mostly occur extra-adrenal remains a mystery.

Department of Clinical Surgical Sciences, The University of the West Indies, St Augustine Campus, Trinidad, West Indies.

Retroperitoneal liposarcomas are rare mesenchymal tumors which carry a poor prognosis because of their late presentation. When symptoms do occur, they are usually nonspecific and related to mass effect or invasion of local structures. Rarely, retroperitoneal liposarcomas can clinically and biochemically mimic phaeochromocytomas. Read More

Leptin Induces Epigenetic Regulation of Transient Receptor Potential Melastatin 7 in PC12 Cells.

Am J Respir Cell Mol Biol 2021 Apr 23. Epub 2021 Apr 23.

University of Pittsburgh Graduate School of Public Health, 51303, Environmental and Occupational Health, Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, United States;

Obesity elevates plasma level of leptin, which has been associated with hypertension. Our recent studies in mice demonstrated that leptin increases blood pressure by activating the carotid sinus nerve, which transmits the chemosensory input from carotid bodies (CB) to the medullary centers; and the effect of leptin is mediated via transient receptor potential melastatin 7 (Trpm7) channels in CB glomus cells. We also found that Trpm7 overexpression and Trpm7 promoter demethylation in CB correlate positively with the hyperleptinemia and leptin receptor overexpression in CB. Read More
