It is critical for survival to assign positive or negative valence to salient stimuli in a correct manner. Accordingly, harmful stimuli and internal states characterized by perturbed homeostasis are accompanied by discomfort, unease, and aversion. Aversive signaling causes extensive suffering during chronic diseases, including inflammatory conditions, cancer, and depression. Here, we investigated the role of melanocortin 4 receptors (MC4Rs) in aversive processing using genetically modified mice and a behavioral test in which mice avoid an environment that they have learned to associate with aversive stimuli. In normal mice...

Receptor tyrosine kinases (RTKs) are important drivers of cancers. In addition to genomic alterations, aberrant activation of WT RTKs plays an important role in driving cancer progression. However, the mechanisms underlying how RTKs drive prostate cancer remain incompletely characterized. Here we show that non-proteolytic ubiquitination of RTK regulates its kinase activity and contributes to RTK-mediated prostate cancer metastasis. TRAF4, an E3 ubiquitin ligase, is highly expressed in metastatic prostate cancer. We demonstrated here that it is a key player in regulating RTK-mediated prostate cancer metastasis. We further i...

Abstract Transfeminine individuals are treated with estradiol and anti-androgen agents to transition to a more feminine appearance. The physical changes that occur with estradiol therapy include breast development, body fat redistribution, and decreased muscle mass. Transfeminine treatment regimens require monitoring and dose adjustments to achieve appropriate physiologic targets to enhance feminization and decrease risk of adverse outcomes. Adverse effects associated with estradiol use include thromboembolic disease, macroprolactinoma, breast cancer, coronary artery disease, cerebrovascular disease, cholelithiasi...
