Department of Medicine, Division of Cardiovascular Medicine, Medical College of Wisconsin, USA; Cardiovascular Center, Medical College of Wisconsin, USA; Clement J Zablocki VA Medical Center, USA. Electronic address:

Red light (670 nm) promotes ex vivo dilation of blood vessels in a nitric oxide (NO) dependent, but eNOS independent manner by secreting a quasi-stable and transferable vasoactive substance with the characteristics of S-nitrosothiols (RSNO) from the endothelium. In the present work we establish that 670 nm light mediated vasodilation occurs in vivo and is physiologically stable. Light exposure depletes intracellular S-nitroso protein while concomitantly increasing extracellular RNSO, suggesting vesicular pathways are involved. Read More

Autoantibodies Targeting Intracellular and Extracellular Proteins in Autoimmunity.

Front Immunol 2021 8;12:548469. Epub 2021 Mar 8.

Salivary Disorders Unit, National Institute of Dental and Craniofacial Research, National Institutes of Health, Bethesda, MD, United States.

Detecting autoantibodies provides foundational information for the diagnosis of most autoimmune diseases. An important pathophysiological distinction is whether autoantibodies are directed against extracellular or intracellular proteins. Autoantibodies targeting extracellular domains of proteins, such as membrane receptors, channels or secreted molecules are often directly pathogenic, whereby autoantibody binding to the autoantigen disrupts the normal function of a critical protein or pathway, and/or triggers antibody-dependent cell surface complement killing.

Endogenous Retroelement Activation by Epigenetic Therapy Reverses the Warburg Effect and Elicits Mitochondrial-Mediated Cancer Cell Death.

Cancer Discov 2021 May 18;11(5):1268-1285. Epub 2020 Dec 18.

Division of Hematology, Center for Applied Medical Research CIMA, University of Navarra, IDISNA, CIBERONC, Pamplona, Spain.

For millions of years, endogenous retroelements have remained transcriptionally silent within mammalian genomes by epigenetic mechanisms. Modern anticancer therapies targeting the epigenetic machinery awaken retroelement expression, inducing antiviral responses that eliminate tumors through mechanisms not completely understood. Here, we find that massive binding of epigenetically activated retroelements by RIG-I and MDA5 viral sensors promotes ATP hydrolysis and depletes intracellular energy, driving tumor killing independently of immune signaling.

Specifically Eliminating Tumor-Associated Macrophages with an Extra- and Intracellular Stepwise-Responsive Nanocarrier for Inhibiting Metastasis.

ACS Appl Mater Interfaces 2020 Dec 16;12(52):57798-57809. Epub 2020 Dec 16.

Institution of Pharmaceutics, College of Pharmaceutical Sciences, Zhejiang University, Hangzhou 310058, China.

Metastasis is the primary cause of death for most cancer patients, in which tumor-associated macrophages (TAMs) are involved through several mechanisms. While hitherto there is still a lack of study on exclusive elimination of TAMs to inhibit metastasis due to the difficulties in specific targeting of TAMs, we construct an extra- and intracellular stepwise-responsive delivery system -(aminomethyl)benzoic acid (PAMB)/doxorubicin (DOX) to achieve specific TAM depletion for the first time, thereby preventing tumor metastasis. Once accumulated into the tumor, PAMB/DOX would stepwise responsively (hypoxia and reactive oxygen species (ROS) responsively) disintegrate to expose the TAM-targeting ligand and release DOX sequentially, which depletes TAMs effectively .

Angiopoietin-like protein 3, an emerging cardiometabolic therapy target with systemic and cell-autonomous functions.

Biochim Biophys Acta Mol Cell Biol Lipids 2020 12 8;1865(12):158791. Epub 2020 Aug 8.

Minerva Foundation Institute for Medical Research, Helsinki, Finland; Department of Anatomy, Faculty of Medicine, University of Helsinki, Finland. Electronic address:

Angiopoietin like protein 3 (ANGPTL3) is best known for its function as an inhibitor of lipoprotein and endothelial lipases. Due to the capacity of genetic or pharmacologic ANGPTL3 suppression to markedly reduce circulating lipoproteins, and the documented cardioprotection upon such suppression, ANGPTL3 has become an emerging therapy target for which both antibody and antisense oligonucleotide (ASO) therapeutics are being clinically tested. While the antibody is relatively selective for circulating ANGPTL3, the ASO also depletes the intra-hepatocellular protein, and there is emerging evidence for cell-autonomous functions of ANGPTL3 in the liver.
