Department of Chemistry and Biochemistry, Université de Moncton, Moncton, NB, Canada; New Brunswick Center for Precision Medicine, Moncton, NB, Canada. Electronic address:

Neutrophils play a key role in the innate immunity with their ability to generate and release inflammatory mediators that promote the inflammatory response and consequently restore the hemostasis. As active participants in several steps of the normal inflammatory response, neutrophils are also involved in chronic inflammatory diseases such as asthma, atherosclerosis, and arthritis. Given their dual role in the modulation of inflammation, regulating the inflammatory response of neutrophils has been suggested as an important therapeutic approach by numerous researchers.

Krüppel-like factor 1 is a core cardiomyogenic trigger in zebrafish.

Science 2021 04;372(6538):201-205

Developmental and Stem Cell Biology Division, Victor Chang Cardiac Research Institute, Darlinghurst, New South Wales, Australia.

Cardiac regeneration requires dedifferentiation and proliferation of mature cardiomyocytes, but the mechanisms underlying this plasticity remain unclear. Here, we identify a potent cardiomyogenic role for Krüppel-like factor 1 (Klf1/Eklf), which is induced in adult zebrafish myocardium upon injury. Myocardial inhibition of Klf1 function does not affect heart development, but it severely impairs regeneration. Read More

Crucial role of fatty acid oxidation in asthmatic bronchial smooth muscle remodelling.

Eur Respir J 2021 Apr 8. Epub 2021 Apr 8.

Centre de Recherche Cardio-thoracique de Bordeaux, U1045, MRGM, Functional Genomics Center (CGFB), CIC 1401, CELLOMET, Univ-Bordeaux, Bordeaux, France

Background: Bronchial smooth muscle (BSM) remodelling in asthma is related to an increased mitochondrial biogenesis and enhanced BSM cell proliferation in asthma. Since (i) mitochondria produce the highest levels of cellular energy and (ii) fatty acid beta-oxidation is the most powerful way to produce ATP, we hypothesized that, in asthmatic BSM cells, energetic metabolism is shifted towards the beta-oxidation of fatty acids.

Objectives: We aimed to characterize BSM cell metabolism in asthma both and to identify a novel target for reducing BSM cell proliferation. Read More

Neural stem cells traffic functional mitochondria via extracellular vesicles.

PLoS Biol 2021 Apr 7;19(4):e3001166. Epub 2021 Apr 7.

Department of Clinical Neurosciences and NIHR Biomedical Research Centre, University of Cambridge, United Kingdom.

Neural stem cell (NSC) transplantation induces recovery in animal models of central nervous system (CNS) diseases. Although the replacement of lost endogenous cells was originally proposed as the primary healing mechanism of NSC grafts, it is now clear that transplanted NSCs operate via multiple mechanisms, including the horizontal exchange of therapeutic cargoes to host cells via extracellular vesicles (EVs). EVs are membrane particles trafficking nucleic acids, proteins, metabolites and metabolic enzymes, lipids, and entire organelles. Read More
