Biomimetic synthesis of a novel O2-regeneration nanosystem for enhanced starvation/chemo-therapy.

Nanotechnology 2021 Sep 20. Epub 2021 Sep 20.

Qufu Normal University, qufu, Qufu, Shandong, 273165, CHINA.

Glucose oxidase (GOX)-mediated starvation therapy that effectively cuts off energy supply holds great promise in cancer treatment. However, high glutathione (GSH) contents and anoxic conditions severely reduce therapy efficiency and cannot fully kill cancer cells. Herein, to resolve the above problem, this study constructed a biomimetic nanosystem based on nanreproo-MnO2 with porous craspedia globose-like structure and high specific surface area, and it was further modified with dopamine and folic acid to guarantee good biocompatibility and selectivity toward cancer cells.

Circadian rhythm in hypothalamic leptin receptor (Ob-Rb) mRNA expressions and cerebrospinal fluid and circulating glucose and leptin levels in lactating rats.

Biochem Biophys Rep 2021 Dec 8;28:101129. Epub 2021 Sep 8.

Department of Animal Science, School of Veterinary Medicine, Kitasato University, Towada, Japan.

In lactating animals, the food consumption increases several-fold for milk supply to the pups. The present study was conducted to clarify the relationship between the hyperphagia during lactation and hypothalamic leptin receptor (Ob-Rb) mRNA expression, cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) and circulating leptin and glucose levels. Food intakes significantly higher in lactation than in non-lactation at all time points (3 points: light phase, 4 points: dark phase) of the day. Read More

Activated Pancreatic Stellate Cells Enhance the Warburg Effect to Cause the Malignant Development in Chronic Pancreatitis.

Front Oncol 2021 3;11:714598. Epub 2021 Sep 3.

Department of General Surgery, The First Affiliated Hospital of University of Science & Technology of China, Anhui Provincial Hospital, Hefei, China.

Chronic pancreatitis (CP) is a precancerous condition associated with pancreatic ductal adenocarcinoma (PDAC), but its evolutionary mechanism is unclear. Pancreatic stellate cells (PSCs) are closely related to the occurrence and development of CP and PDAC, but it is not clear whether PSCs play a key role in this "inflammation-cancer transition". Our research found that co-culture with activated PSCs promoted the proliferation, migration and invasion of normal pancreatic duct epithelial cells and pancreatic cancer cells. Read More

Characterisation of the Myocardial Mitochondria Structural and Functional Phenotype in a Murine Model of Diabetic Cardiomyopathy.

Front Physiol 2021 1;12:672252. Epub 2021 Sep 1.

Heart Failure Pharmacology, Drug Discovery Biology, Monash Institute of Pharmaceutical Sciences, Monash University, Melbourne, VIC, Australia.

People affected by diabetes are at an increased risk of developing heart failure than their non-diabetic counterparts, attributed in part to a distinct cardiac pathology termed diabetic cardiomyopathy. Mitochondrial dysfunction and excess reactive oxygen species (ROS) have been implicated in a range of diabetic complications and are a common feature of the diabetic heart. In this study, we sought to characterise impairments in mitochondrial structure and function in a recently described experimental mouse model of diabetic cardiomyopathy. Read More

Ubiquitin pathways regulate the pathogenesis of chronic liver disease.

Biochem Pharmacol 2021 Sep 13:114764. Epub 2021 Sep 13.

College of Pharmacy and Medical Research Center, Chungbuk National University, Cheongju 28160, South Korea. Electronic address:

Chronic liver disease (CLD) is considered the leading cause of global mortality. In westernized countries, increased consumption of alcohol and overeating foods with high fat/ high glucose promote progression of CLD such as alcoholic liver disease (ALD) and non-alcoholic liver disease (NAFLD). Accumulating evidence and research suggest that ubiquitin, a 75 amino acid protein, plays crucial role in the pathogenesis of CLD through dynamic post-translational modifications (PTMs) exerting diverse cellular outcomes such as protein degradation through ubiquitin-proteasome system (UPS) and autophagy, and regulation of signal transduction.
