Br J Pharmacol 2021 Apr 17. Epub 2021 Apr 17.

Cyclerion Therapeutics Inc., 301 Binney Street, Cambridge, MA, 02142, USA.

Background And Purpose: Reduced nitric oxide (NO) bioavailability, a hallmark of sickle cell disease (SCD), contributes to intravascular inflammation, vasoconstriction, vaso-occlusion, and organ damage observed in SCD patients. Soluble guanylyl cyclase (sGC) catalyzes synthesis of cyclic guanosine monophosphate (cGMP) in response to NO. cGMP amplifying agents, including NO donors and phosphodiesterase 9 inhibitors, alleviate tumor necrosis factor alpha (TNFα)-induced inflammation in wild-type C57BL/6 mice and in "humanized" mouse models of SCD.

The AT-1 Angiotensin Receptor is Involved in the Autonomic and Neuroendocrine Responses to Acute Restraint Stress in Male Rats.

Cell Mol Neurobiol 2021 Apr 16. Epub 2021 Apr 16.

Department of Pharmacology of the School of Medicine of Ribeirão Preto, University of São Paulo, Ave. Bandeirantes, São Paulo, Ribeirão Preto, 3900-14049-900, Brazil.

The renin-angiotensin system (RAS) is involved in cardiovascular and hydroelectrolytic control, being associated with the development of hypertension. The restraint stress (RS) model is an aversive situation, which promotes a sustained increase in blood pressure and heart rate, and stimulation of the hypothalamic-pituitary-adrenal axis. Stress leads to an increase of angiotensin-II contents both in the circulation and the central nervous system (CNS), as well as an increased expression of AT-1 receptors in CNS structures related to stress.

Leucyl-tRNA synthetase deficiency systemically induces excessive autophagy in zebrafish.

Sci Rep 2021 Apr 16;11(1):8392. Epub 2021 Apr 16.

Department of Cell Biology, Oita University Faculty of Medicine, Yufu, Oita, 879-5593, Japan.

Leucyl-tRNA synthetase (LARS) is an enzyme that catalyses the ligation of leucine with leucine tRNA. LARS is also essential to sensitize the intracellular leucine concentration to the mammalian target of rapamycin complex 1 (mTORC1) activation. Biallelic mutation in the LARS gene causes infantile liver failure syndrome type 1 (ILFS1), which is characterized by acute liver failure, anaemia, and neurological disorders, including microcephaly and seizures.

CHK2 inhibition provides a strategy to suppress hematological toxicity from PARP inhibitors.

Mol Cancer Res 2021 Apr 16. Epub 2021 Apr 16.

Blood Cells and Blood Cancer, The Walter and Eliza Hall Institute

Cancer patients treated with poly (ADP-ribose) polymerase inhibitors (PARPi) experience various side effects, with hematological toxicity being most common. Short term treatment of mice with olaparib resulted in depletion of reticulocytes, B cell progenitors and immature thymocytes, whereas longer treatment induced broader myelosuppression. We performed a CRISPR/Cas9 screen that targeted DNA repair genes in Eµ-Myc pre-B lymphoma cell lines as a way to identify strategies to suppress hematological toxicity from PARPi. Read More
