Multifaceted role of prohibitin in cell survival and apoptosis

Abstract Human eukaryotic prohibitin (prohibitin-1 and prohibitin-2) is a membrane protein with different cellular localizations. It is involved in multiple cellular functions, including energy metabolism, proliferation, apoptosis, and senescence. The subcellular localization of prohibitin may determine its functions. Membrane prohibitin regulate the cellular signaling of membrane transport, nuclear prohibitin control transcription activation and the cell cycle, and mitochondrial prohibitin complex stabilize the mitochondrial genome and modulate mitochondrial dynamics, mitochondrial morphology, mitochondrial biogenesis, and the mitochondrial intrinsic apoptotic pathway. Moreover, prohibitin can translocates into the nucleus or the mitochondria under apoptotic signals and the subcellular shuttling of prohibitin is necessary for apoptosis process. Apoptosis is the process of programmed cell death that is important for the maintenance of normal physiological functions. Consequently, any alteration in the content, post-transcriptional modification (i.e. phosphorylation) or the nuclear or mitochondrial translocation of prohibitin may influence cell fate. Understanding the mechanisms of the expression and regulation of prohibitin may be useful for future research. This review provides an overview of the multifaceted and essential roles played by prohibitin in the regulation of cell survival and apoptosis.

Involvement of eIF2α in halofuginone-driven inhibition of TGF-β1-induced EMT. J Biosci. 2020;45: Authors: Duan M, Wei X, Cheng Z, Liu D, Fotina H, Xia X, Hu J Abstract Halofuginone (HF) is an extract from the widely used traditional Chinese medicine (TCM) Dichroa febrifuga that facilitates the recovery of wounds and attenuates hepatic fibrosis. However, the role of HF in the epithelial-mesenchymal transition (EMT) of IPEC-J2 cells remains unclear. The current study explored the anti-EMT effect of HF in IPEC-J2 cells and illustrates its molecular mechanism. Transforming growth factor β1...

In this study, we wanted to investigate the significance of BTG1 expression in SCC and adjacent tissues. The expression of BTG1 protein and mRNA in SCC tissues and adjacent tissues were detected by immunohistochemistry technique (IHC), Western blot and reverse transcriptase-polymerase chain reaction (RT-PCR). IHC staining showed that the positive expression rate of BTG1 protein in SCC tissues was 54.00%; and the positive rate was 90.50% in the adjacent tissues. Western blot showed that the expression of BTG1 protein in SCC tissues was significantly lower than that in the adjacent tissues (P less than 0.05). RT-PCR showed t...

We demonstrate here that IGF2 exhibits dual and opposing roles in controlling inflammatory phenotypes in macrophages via regulating glucose metabolism. Such difference relies on the dominant activation of IGF2R by low dose IGF2 and IGF1R by high dose IGF2. IGF2R activation leads to proton rechanneling to the mitochond...

Purpose of review FOXOs are transcription factors that regulate downstream target genes to counteract to cell stress. Here we review the function and regulation of FOXO transcription factors, the mechanism of FOXO3 activation in the kidney, and the role of FOXO3 in delaying the development of chronic kidney disease (CKD). Recent findings Progressive renal hypoxia from vascular dropout and metabolic perturbation is a pathogenic factor for the initiation and development of CKD. Hypoxia and low levels of α-ketoglutarate generated from the TCA cycle inhibit prolyl hydroxylase domain (PHD)-mediated prolyl hydroxylati...

Members of the interleukin (IL)-1 family are key determinants of inflammation. Despite their role as intercellular mediators, most lack the leader peptide typically required for protein secretion. This lack is a characteristic of dozens of other proteins that are actively and selectively secreted from living cells independently of the classical endoplasmic reticulum-Golgi exocytic route. These proteins, termed leaderless secretory proteins (LLSPs), comprise proteins directly or indirectly involved in inflammation, including cytokines such as IL-1β and IL-18, growth factors such as fibroblast growth factor 2 (FGF2), re...

The aim of this study was to describe the clinicopathologic features of a series of gnathic epithelioid osteoblastomas. As high levels of Proto-oncogene c-Fos proteins resulting from FOS-FOSB translocation were recently demonstrated in osteoblastomas, we also evaluated the immunoexpression of these proteins.

Authors: Huang L, Deng J, Lang R, Liao G, Jiang W Abstract An increased level of microbial translocation has been observed in HIV-infected individuals. The host response to microbial translocation is compromised in HIV-infected progressors but remains unknown in HIV-infected long-term nonprogressors (LTNPs). To evaluate microbial translocation in HIV, we assessed lipopolysaccharide (LPS) immunohistochemistry staining in lymph nodes. We found enriched bacterial LPS immunohistochemistry staining in the germinal center of a lymph node from an HIV-infected LTNP, evenly distributed from three progressors with impaired g...
