Glucocorticoid Resistance and β2-Adrenergic Receptor Signaling Pathways Promote Peripheral Pro-Inflammatory Conditions Associated with Chronic Psychological Stress: A Systematic Review Across Species.

Neurosci Biobehav Rev 2021 Jun 8. Epub 2021 Jun 8.

Department of Psychology, University of Pittsburgh, University of Pittsburgh School of Medicine, United States. Electronic address:

Activation of the HPA-axis and SNS are widely accepted to link chronic stress with elevated levels of peripheral pro-inflammatory markers in blood. Yet, empirical evidence showing that peripheral levels of glucocorticoids and/or catecholamines mediate this effect is equivocal. Recent attention has turned to the possibility that cellular sensitivity to these ligands may contribute to inflammatory mediators that accompany chronic stress. Read More

Cellular and Molecular Biotechnology Research Institute, National Institute of Advanced Industrial Science and Technology (AIST), 1-1-1 Higashi, Tsukuba, Ibaraki, 305-8566, Japan.

The rBC2LCN lectin, known as a stem cell marker probe that binds to an H type 3 fucosylated trisaccharide motif, was recently revealed to also bind to pancreatic ductal adenocarcinoma (PDAC) cells. A lectin-drug conjugate was generated by fusing rBC2LCN with a cytocidal toxin, and it showed a strong anticancer effect in in vitro and in vivo PDAC models. However, it is unclear which molecules are carrier proteins of rBC2LCN on PDAC cells. Read More

Germ cells of the mammalian female: A limited or renewable resource?

Biol Reprod 2021 Jun 10. Epub 2021 Jun 10.

Department of Obstetrics and Gynecology, McGill University and Research Institute of the McGill University Health Centre, Montreal Canada.

In many non-mammalian organisms, a population of germ-line stem cells supports continuing production of gametes during most or all the life of the individual, and germ-line stem cells are also present and functional in male mammals. Traditionally, however, they have been thought not to exist in female mammals, who instead generate all their germ cells during fetal life. Over the last several years, this dogma has been challenged by several reports, while supported by others. Read More

DHODH inhibition modulates glucose metabolism and circulating GDF15, and improves metabolic balance.

iScience 2021 May 1;24(5):102494. Epub 2021 May 1.

Department of Microbiology, Tumor and Cell Biology (MTC), Biomedicum, Karolinska Institutet, SE-171 65 Stockholm, Sweden.

Dihydroorotate dehydrogenase (DHODH) is essential for the synthesis of pyrimidine ribonucleotides, and as such, its inhibitors have been long used to treat autoimmune diseases and are in clinical trials for cancer and viral infections. Interestingly, DHODH is located in the inner mitochondrial membrane and contributes to provide ubiquinol to the respiratory chain. Thus, DHODH provides the link between nucleotide metabolism and mitochondrial function. Read More

GLI1: A Therapeutic Target for Cancer.

Front Oncol 2021 25;11:673154. Epub 2021 May 25.

Oncology Department, Drug Discovery Division, Southern Research, Birmingham, AL, United States.

GLI1 is a transcriptional effector at the terminal end of the Hedgehog signaling (Hh) pathway and is tightly regulated during embryonic development and tissue patterning/differentiation. GLI1 has low-level expression in differentiated tissues, however, in certain cancers, aberrant activation of GLI1 has been linked to the promotion of numerous hallmarks of cancer, such as proliferation, survival, angiogenesis, metastasis, metabolic rewiring, and chemotherapeutic resistance. All of these are driven, in part, by GLI1's role in regulating cell cycle, DNA replication and DNA damage repair processes. Read More
