ADAM17-triggered TNF signalling protects the ageing Drosophila retina from lipid droplet-mediated degeneration.

EMBO J 2020 09 26;39(17):e104415. Epub 2020 Jul 26.

Sir William Dunn School of Pathology, University of Oxford, Oxford, UK.

Animals have evolved multiple mechanisms to protect themselves from the cumulative effects of age-related cellular damage. Here, we reveal an unexpected link between the TNF (tumour necrosis factor) inflammatory pathway, triggered by the metalloprotease ADAM17/TACE, and a lipid droplet (LD)-mediated mechanism of protecting retinal cells from age-related degeneration. Loss of ADAM17, TNF and the TNF receptor Grindelwald in pigmented glial cells of the Drosophila retina leads to age-related degeneration of both glia and neurons, preceded by an abnormal accumulation of glial LDs.

The role of activated leukocyte cell adhesion molecule (ALCAM) in cancer progression, invasion, metastasis and recurrence: A novel cancer stem cell marker and tumor-specific prognostic marker.

Exp Mol Pathol 2020 08 5;115:104443. Epub 2020 May 5.

Recombinant Proteins Department, Breast Cancer Research Center, Motamed Cancer Institute, ACECR, Tehran, Iran. Electronic address:

Activated leukocyte cell adhesion molecule (ALCAM) or CD166 is a 100 to 105 KDa transmembrane immunoglobulin which is involved in activation of T-cells, hematopoiesis, neutrophils trans-endothelial migration, angiogenesis, inflammation and tumor propagation and invasiveness through formation of homophilic and heterophilic interactions. Recently, many studies have proposed that the expression pattern of ALCAM is highly associated with the grade, stage and invasiveness of tumors. Although ALCAM is a valuable prognostic marker in different carcinomas, similar expression patterns in different tumor types may be associated with completely different prognostic states, making it to be a tumor-type-dependent prognostic marker.

Proteolytic processing of PD-L1 by ADAM proteases in breast cancer cells.

Cancer Immunol Immunother 2020 Jan 3;69(1):43-55. Epub 2019 Dec 3.

Department of Biochemistry and Molecular Biophysics, Kansas State University, 141 Chalmers Hall, Manhattan, KS, 66506, USA.

Expression of programmed death ligand 1 (PD-L1) on the surface of tumor cells and its interaction with programmed cell death protein 1 (PD-1) on tumor-infiltrating lymphocytes suppress anti-tumor immunity. In breast tumors, PD-L1 expression levels are the highest in estrogen receptor-negative, progesterone receptor-negative, and human epidermal growth factor receptor 2-negative (triple-negative) cancers. In this study, we show that a portion of PD-L1 exogenously expressed in several triple-negative breast cancer cell lines, as well as endogenous PD-L1, is proteolytically cleaved by cell surface metalloproteases.

NMDA Receptors Regulate Neuregulin 2 Binding to ER-PM Junctions and Ectodomain Release by ADAM10 [corrected].

Mol Neurobiol 2019 12 25;56(12):8345-8363. Epub 2019 Jun 25.

Section on Molecular Neurobiology, Eunice Kennedy Shriver National Institute of Child Health and Human Development, 35 Lincoln Drive, Room 2C-1000, Bethesda, MD, 20892, USA.

Unprocessed pro-neuregulin 2 (pro-NRG2) accumulates on neuronal cell bodies at junctions between the endoplasmic reticulum and plasma membrane (ER-PM junctions). NMDA receptors (NMDARs) trigger NRG2 ectodomain shedding from these sites followed by activation of ErbB4 receptor tyrosine kinases, and ErbB4 signaling cell-autonomously downregulates intrinsic excitability of GABAergic interneurons by reducing voltage-gated sodium channel currents. NMDARs also promote dispersal of Kv2. Read More

Activation of stimulator of interferon genes (STING) induces ADAM17-mediated shedding of the immune semaphorin SEMA4D.

J Biol Chem 2018 05 4;293(20):7717-7726. Epub 2018 Apr 4.

From the Division of Cell Signaling, Fujii Memorial Institute of Medical Sciences, Tokushima University, 3-18-15 Kuramoto-cho, Tokushima 770-8503, Japan.

Stimulator of interferon genes (STING) is an endoplasmic reticulum-resident membrane protein that mediates cytosolic pathogen DNA-induced innate immunity and inflammatory responses in host defenses. STING is activated by cyclic di-nucleotides and is then translocated to the Golgi apparatus, an event that triggers STING assembly with the downstream enzyme TANK-binding kinase 1 (TBK1). This assembly leads to the phosphorylation of the transcription factor interferon regulatory factor 3 (IRF3), which in turn induces expression of type-I interferon (IFN) and chemokine genes.
