Protein involved in blood clotting stimulates liver repair

(Michigan State University) A team of Michigan State University researchers, led by James Luyendyk in the College of Veterinary Medicine, has uncovered a new pathway in the body that stimulates liver repair.Using an experimental model of high-dosage acetaminophen, the team found that liver injury activated blood clotting, which then stimulated liver repair.The study is published online in the Journal of Hepatology.

If damage is limited, cells can repair lysosomes by means of the endosomal sorting complex required for transport (ESCRT) machinery. Presumably if repair fails, lysosomes are tagged with ubiquitin to initiate clearance by selective macroautophagy, termed lysophagy. Accumulating evidence suggests dama...

ImlayAbstractOrganisms have evolved two different classes of the ubiquitous enzyme fumarase: the [4Fe–4S] cluster-containing class I enzymes are oxidant-sensitive, whereas the class II enzymes are iron-free and therefore oxidant-resistant. When hydrogen peroxide (H2O2) attacks the most-studied [4Fe–4S] fumarases, only the cluster is damaged, and thus the cell can rapidly repair the enzyme. However, this study shows that when elevated levels of H2O2 oxidized the class I fumarase of the obligate anaerobe Bacteroide...

LaPradeAbstractMedial meniscal root tears are often disabling injuries that can occur in isolation during low-velocity, deep knee flexion maneuvers in middle-aged patients. The most common meniscal root tear pattern is a radial tear near the root attachment (type II). Root tears are often associated with meniscal extrusion, identified on magnetic resonance imaging. Relocation of the meniscal root to its anatomic center is a reported current difficulty faced by surgeo...

ConclusionsLPS reduced cell proliferation and VEGF secretion of PDLSCs, suggesting that periodontal pathogens might reduce the capability of PDLSCs in periodontal regeneration. Yet, LPS treated PDLSCs remained viable and VEGF secretion increased significantly over time. Further research is needed to study the potential use of PDLSCs in periodontal regeneration and the relationship of biofilm LPS accumulations.

Dehydrogenase/reductase SDR family member 2 silencing sensitizes an oxaliplatin‑resistant cell line to oxaliplatin by inhibiting excision repair cross‑complementing group 1 protein expression. Oncol Rep. 2019 Aug 22;: Authors: Li JM, Jiang GM, Zhao L, Yang F, Yuan WQ, Wang H, Luo YQ Abstract Oxaliplatin (Oxa)‑based chemotherapy is widely used as the first‑line treatment for colorectal cancer (CRC). However, Oxa‑resistance is common for many postoperative CRC patients. To explore drug resistance in CRC, an Oxa‑resistant cell line, HCT116/Oxa, was established from parental HCT116 cells. ...
