Genes, Vol. 12, Pages 1665: Histone Variant H2A.J Is Enriched in Luminal Epithelial Gland Cells Genes doi: 10.3390/genes12111665 Authors: Christophe E. Redon Zoe Schmal Gargi Tewary Adèle Mangelinck Régis Courbeyrette Jean-Yves Thuret Mirit I. Aladjem William M. Bonner Claudia E. Rübe Carl Mann H2A.J is a poorly studied mammalian-specific variant of histone H2A. We used immunohistochemistry to study its localization in various human and mouse tissues. H2A.J showed cell-type specific expression with a striking enrichment in luminal epithelial cells of multiple glands including those of breast, prostate, pancreas, thyroid, stomach, and salivary glands. H2A.J was also highly expressed in many carcinoma cell lines and in particular, those derived from luminal breast and prostate cancer. H2A.J thus appears to be a novel marker for luminal epithelial cancers. Knocking-out the H2AFJ gene in T47D luminal breast cancer cells reduced the expression of several estrogen-responsive genes which may explain its putative tumorigenic role in luminal-B breast cancer.

Discussion The hands are one of the most important parts of the body for interacting with the world. They are remarkably adapted having sensitive sensory receptors as well as feedback receptors for grasping, holding, and manipulating objects. Hands, especially with an opposable thumb, multiple joints within the hand, along with the wrist and elbow, allow the hand to move in multiple positions to manipulate the world. Hands also symbolize an emotional caring and sharing between individuals as hands are used to provide a true “human touch” in personal and social situations. Due to their important interactions in ...

In this study, they found these drugs can kill senescent cells from cultures of human fat tissue. The tissue was donated by individuals with obesity who were known to have metabolic troubles. Without treatment, the human fat tissues induced metabolic problems in immune-deficient mice. After treatment with dasatinib and quercetin, the harmful effects of the fat tissue were almost eliminated. Targeting p21Cip1 highly expressing cells in adipose tissue alleviates insulin resistance in obesity Insulin resistance is a pathological state often associated with obesity, representing a major risk factor for type 2...

Purpose of review Systemic treatment is the only therapeutic option for patients with progressive, metastatic medullary thyroid cancer (MTC). Since the discovery of the rearranged during transfection (RET) proto-oncogene (100% hereditary, 60–90% sporadic MTC), research has focused on finding effective systemic therapies to target this mutation. This review surveys recent findings. Recent findings Multikinase inhibitors are systemic agents targeting angiogenesis, inhibiting growth of tumor cells and cells in the tumor environment and healthy endothelium. In the phase III EXAM and ZETA trials, cabozantinib a...

Purpose of review Activating mutations in the mitogen-activated protein kinase (MAPK) pathway play an important role in papillary (PTC) and anaplastic (ATC) thyroid cancer. The aim of this review is to discuss the impact of BRAF mutations on clinical features and treatment of patients with thyroid cancer. Recent findings Despite the unfavorable course associated with PTCs harboring BRAF V600E mutation, its prognostic role remains debated. BRAF V600E-driven tumors exhibit high Extracellular signal-regulated kinase phosphorylation, leading to unregulated cell proliferation and inhibition of the required genes for ...

In conclusion, osmotic burst of inflated complement-damaged cells may occur, but these bursts are most likely a consequence of metabolic collapse of the cell rather than the cause of cell death. The Complement Cell Death Mediator: A Concerted Action of Toxic Moieties Membrane pores caused by complement were first visualized by electron microscopy on red blood cell membranes as large ring structures (22). Similar lesions were viewed on E. coli cell walls (23). Over the years, ample information on the fine ultrastructure of the MAC that can activate cell death has been gathered (24) and has been recently further examined (...
