Intracellular Progesterone Receptor and cSrc Protein Working Together to Regulate the Activity of Proteins Involved in Migration and Invasion of Human Glioblastoma Cells.

Front Endocrinol (Lausanne) 2021 26;12:640298. Epub 2021 Mar 26.

Unidad de Investigación en Reproducción Humana, Instituto Nacional de Perinatología-Facultad de Química, Universidad Nacional Autónoma de México (UNAM), Ciudad de México, Mexico.

Glioblastomas are the most common and aggressive primary brain tumors in adults, and patients with glioblastoma have a median survival of 15 months. Some alternative therapies, such as Src family kinase inhibitors, have failed presumably because other signaling pathways compensate for their effects. In the last ten years, it has been proven that sex hormones such as progesterone (P4) can induce growth, migration, and invasion of glioblastoma cells through its intracellular progesterone receptor (PR), which is mostly known for its role as a transcription factor, but it can also induce non-genomic actions.

Complement receptor 3 mediates both sinking phagocytosis and phagocytic cup formation via distinct mechanisms.

J Biol Chem 2021 Jan 8;296:100256. Epub 2021 Jan 8.

Institut für Molekulare Zellbiologie, Westfälische Wilhems-Universität Münster, Münster, Germany; Department of Physiology, Pathophysiology and Toxicology and ZBAF (Centre for Biomedical Education and Research), Faculty of Health, School of Medicine, Witten/Herdecke University, Witten, Germany. Electronic address:

A long-standing hypothesis is that complement receptors (CRs), especially CR3, mediate sinking phagocytosis, but evidence is lacking. Alternatively, CRs have been reported to induce membrane ruffles or phagocytic cups, akin to those induced by Fcγ receptors (FcγRs), but the details of these events are unclear. Here we used real-time 3D imaging and KO mouse models to clarify how particles (human red blood cells) are internalized by resident peritoneal F4/80 cells (macrophages) via CRs and/or FcγRs.

The phospholipase D inhibitor FIPI potently blocks EGF-induced calcium signaling in human breast cancer cells.

Cell Commun Signal 2021 Apr 8;19(1):43. Epub 2021 Apr 8.

Institute of Immunology, Center of Biomedical Education and Research (ZBAF), Witten/Herdecke University, Witten, Germany.

Background: Phosphotyrosine kinase (PTK)-mediated phospholipase C-γ1 (PLC-γ1) signaling plays a crucial role in the release of the universal second messenger calcium from intracellular stores, which is mandatory for several cellular processes, including cell migration. However, PLC-γ1 could also be activated in a PTK-independent manner by phospholipase D (PLD)-derived phosphatidic acid (PA). Because both higher PLD expression levels and PLD activity have also been associated with breast cancer cell invasion and migration, we wondered whether there might be a link between PLD and PLC-γ1, which was investigated in this study.
