Estrogen Decreases Cytoskeletal Organization by Forming an ERα/SHP2/c-Src Complex in Osteoclasts to Protect against Ovariectomy-Induced Bone Loss in Mice.

Antioxidants (Basel) 2021 Apr 17;10(4). Epub 2021 Apr 17.

Department of Biological Sciences (BK21 Program), University of Ulsan, Ulsan 680-749, Korea.

Loss of ovarian function is closely related to estrogen (E) deficiency, which is responsible for increased osteoclast (OC) differentiation and activity. We aimed to investigate the action mechanism of E to decrease bone resorption in OCs to protect from ovariectomy (OVX)-induced bone loss in mice. In vivo, tartrate-resistant acid phosphatase (TRAP) staining in femur and serum carboxy-terminal collagen crosslinks-1 (CTX-1) were analyzed upon E injection after OVX in mice. Read More

Mol Med Rep 2021 Jun 26;23(6). Epub 2021 Apr 26.

Department of Nephrology, Faculty of Medicine, University of Thessaly, 41110 Larissa, Greece.

The present study evaluated indoleamine 2,3‑dioxygenase 1 (IDO) kinetics and how it affects cell survival during the two distinct phases of ischemia‑reperfusion (I‑R) injury. Primary renal proximal tubular epithelial cells (RPTECs) were cultured under anoxia or reoxygenation with or without the IDO inhibitor 1‑DL‑methyltryptophan, the aryl‑hydrocarbon receptor (AhR) inhibitor CH223191 or the ferroptosis inhibitor α‑tocopherol. Using cell imaging, colorimetric assays, PCR and western blotting, it was demonstrated that IDO was upregulated and induced apoptosis during anoxia. Read More

Exp Cell Res 2020 11 14;396(1):112288. Epub 2020 Sep 14.

Department of Pulmonary Medicine, Xijing Hospital, Fourth Military Medical University, Xi'an, 710032, China. Electronic address:

Cancer stem cells (CSCs) play an important role in shaping the invasive cancer phenotype by contributing to tumor initiation, metastasis, relapse, and therapeutic resistance in non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC). The Aryl hydrocarbon receptor (AhR), a ligand activated transcription factor, which is well known for mediating the toxicity and tumorigenesis of a variety of environmental pollutants, has been extensively recognized as an important mediator in NSCLC development. Here, evidence showed that AhR was overexpressed in NSCLC tissues, and a high AhR protein level was associated with an aggressive tumor phenotype. Read More

Imidazo[1,2-]pyrazole-7-Carboxamide Derivative Induces Differentiation-Coupled Apoptosis of Immature Myeloid Cells Such as Acute Myeloid Leukemia and Myeloid-Derived Suppressor Cells.

Int J Mol Sci 2020 Jul 20;21(14). Epub 2020 Jul 20.

Laboratory of Functional Genomics, Institute of Genetics, Biological Research Centre, Temesvári krt. 62, H6726 Szeged, Hungary.

Chemotherapy-induced differentiation of immature myeloid progenitors, such as acute myeloid leukemia (AML) cells or myeloid-derived suppressor cells (MDSCs), has remained a challenge for the clinicians. Testing our imidazo[1,2-]pyrazole-7-carboxamide derivative on HL-60 cells, we obtained ERK phosphorylation as an early survival response to treatment followed by the increase of the percentage of the Bcl-xl and pAkt cells. Following the induction of Vav1 and the AP-1 complex, a driver of cellular differentiation, FOS, JUN, JUNB, and JUND were elevated on a concentration and time-dependent manner. Read More

Estrogen receptor-α signaling increases allergen-induced IL-33 release and airway inflammation.

Allergy 2021 01 26;76(1):255-268. Epub 2020 Jul 26.

Department of Medicine, Division of Allergy, Pulmonary, and Critical Care Medicine, Vanderbilt University Medical Center, Nashville, Tennessee, USA.

Background: Group 2 innate lymphoid cells (ILC2) are stimulated by IL-33 to increase IL-5 and IL-13 production and airway inflammation. While sex hormones regulate airway inflammation, it remained unclear whether estrogen signaling through estrogen receptor-α (ER-α, Esr1) or ER-β (Esr2) increased ILC2-mediated airway inflammation. We hypothesize that estrogen signaling increases allergen-induced IL-33 release, ILC2 cytokine production, and airway inflammation. Read More

Inorg Chem 2020 Sep 10;59(17):11976-11985. Epub 2020 Jul 10.

Department of Chemistry, Faculty of Pure and Applied Sciences, University of Tsukuba, CREST, Japan Science and Technology Agency (JST), 1-1-1 Tennoudai, Tsukuba, Ibaraki 305-8571, Japan.

Novel heterodinuclear Ir-M complexes (M = Co, Ni, or Cu) with two adjacent reaction sites were synthesized by using 3,5-bis(2-pyridyl)-pyrazole (Hbpp) as a structure-directing ligand and employed as catalysts for H evolution through formic acid dehydrogenation in water. A cooperative effect of the hetero-metal centers was observed in the H evolution in comparison with the corresponding mononuclear Ir and M complexes as the components of the Ir-M complexes. The H evolution rate for the Ir-M complexes was at most 350-fold higher than that of the mononuclear Ir complex. Read More

Roflumilast attenuates cognitive deficits in estrogen insufficient rats.

Behav Pharmacol 2020 10;31(7):671-687

Department of Pharmacology, Institute of Pharmaceutical Research, GLA University, Mathura, Uttar Pradesh, India.

Estrogen replacement therapy including specific estrogen receptor alpha (ERα) agonist, 4,4',4″-(4-propyl-[1H] pyrazole-1,3,5-triyl) trisphenol (PPT), improves cognitive function in the females with estrogen insufficiency condition. It is well suggested that the cyclic nucleotides are considered as one of the downstream mediators to ERα receptor activity and they can be hypothesized as a potential target in the management of estrogen insufficiency condition. Roflumilast, a phosphodiesterase-4 inhibitor, increases the level of cyclic adenosine monophosphate (cAMP) in most of the tissues including the brain, and is reported to have procognitive activity in the experimental animals.
