Opiates on the brain
NIH Director's Wednesday Afternoon Lecture Series Dr. Kieffer is a basic scientist and neurobiologist. She isolated the first gene encoding an opioid receptor, a landmark in neuroscience research to understanding molecular bases of opioid transmission and opioid-mediated mechanisms underlying pain control, mood disorders and addiction. Her team elucidated the role of each opioid receptor in both known and unknown areas of opioid physiology and behaviors using gene knockout in mice. She showed that mu receptors mediate both analgesic and addictive actions of morphine, and are responsible for drug and social reward. Her team...

Everything you wanted to know about microtubules but were afraid to ask
NIH Director's Seminar Series Dr. Roll-Mecak will discuss the research of the Laboratory of Cell Biology and Biophysics Section, NINDS. The title of her talk is " Everything you wanted to know about microtubules but were afraid to ask " . In addition to providing structural support, microtubules form a complex and dynamic intracellular " highway " that delivers molecular cargo from one end of the cell to another - which in the case of neuronal cells can span several feet. Given the continually changing cell physiology, this delivery system undergoes constant remodeling as cargo is transported to differe...

Mitochondria control of physiology and disease: beyond ATP
NIH Director ’ s Wednesday Afternoon Lecture Series For decades, the mitochondria have been primarily viewed as biosynthetic and bioenergetic organelles generating metabolites for the production of macromolecules and ATP, respectively. Our work has elucidated that mitochondria have a third distinct role whereby they release reactive oxygen species (ROS) and metabolites such as L-2-hydroxyglutarate to initiate physiological and pathological processes including hypoxic activation of HIFs, cellular differentiation, T cell activation and cancer cell proliferation. Thus, mitochondria function as signaling organelles.For m...

Epithelial molecules shaping immunosurveillance by local T cells
Immunology Interest Group Seminar Series The thesis of conventional immunology is centralized control whereby responses to infection within tissues are decided within lymph nodes, from which effector T lymphocytes are dispatched to quell regional disturbances. But this cannot explain the observation that many tissues at steady state are T cell-rich. Do such cells simply provide responses to infection or do they provide more generalized means to sustain tissue integrity and organ function? Likewise, how are such cells able to respond to acute stress but not drive constitutive tissue inflammation? And, how do immune cell &nd...

In the early 20th century Homer Smith demonstrated that glucose was freely filtered by the human kidney, no glucose was lost in the urine, and phlorizin completely blocked glucose reabsorption. Despite the fact that glycosuria is a hallmark of diabetes, a new class of drugs derived from phlorizin have been introduced to lower hyperglycemia in these patients by increasing glycosuria. Dr. Wright will review the kidney physiology and preclinical studies that led to this unexpected new treatment for diabetes.Air date: 10/17/2016 2:00:00 PM (Source: Videocast - All Events)

The pathway of autophagy has assumed an important position in the analysis of mammalian cellular response to stress, hypoxia and pathogen infection. Autophagosomes mature by growth and envelopment of cytosolic proteins and organelles that are trapped within the inner membrane of a two-membrane organelle. Trapped proteins are delivered by autophagosome fusion to the lysosome where protein and polysaccharide degradation permit amino acids and sugars to be recycled. A pre-autophagsosomal membran...
