  • Hsp90 inhibitor AT-533 blocks HSV-1 nuclear egress and assembly
    • Authors: Li F; Jin F, Wang Y, et al.
      Pages: 397 - 406
      Abstract: Heat shock protein 90 (Hsp90) has been identified as an essential host factor for the infection and replication of several viruses, including HSV-1. Recent works have clearly shown that Hsp90 plays a role in the early stages of HSV-1 infection, including nuclear import and DNA replication. However, the role of Hsp90 in the late stages of HSV-1 infection remains unclear. In this study, we found that Hsp90 was up-regulated during late viral infection. Treatment with the Hsp90 inhibitor AT-533 significantly decreased the intracellular and extracellular virus titers, and strongly inhibited nucleocapsid egress from the nucleus. More detailed studies revealed that AT-533 inhibited the nuclear egress of the viral nucleocapsid by suppressing the expression and translocation of nuclear-associated proteins pUL31 and pUL34. In addition, we found that AT-533 hindered the assembly of virus particles possibly though affecting the localization of glycoproteins in the endoplasmic reticulum and Golgi apparatus. These results thus invoke a new role for Hsp90 in the nucleocapsid egress and viral maturation of HSV-1, and further promote the development of Hsp90 inhibitors as potential anti-HSV-1 drugs.

  • A novel protocol for the preparation of active recombinant human
           pancreatic lipase from Escherichia coli
    • Authors: Kawaguchi N; Date K, Suzuki Y, et al.
      Pages: 407 - 414
      Abstract: An active recombinant human pancreatic lipase (recHPL) was successfully prepared for the first time from the Escherichia coli expression system using short Strep-tag II (ST II). The recHPL–ST II was solubilized using 8 M urea from E.coli lysate and purified on a Strep-Tactin-Sepharose column. After refolding by stepwise dialyses in the presence of glycerol and Ca2+ for 2 days followed by gel filtration, 1.8–6 mg of active recHPL–ST II was obtained from 1 L of culture. The recHPL was non-glycosylated, but showed almost equal specific activity, pH-dependency and time-dependent stability compared to those of native porcine pancreatic lipase (PPL) at 37°C. However, the recHPL lost its lipolytic activity above 50°C, showing a lower heat-stability than that of native PPL, which retained half its activity at this temperature.

  • C1D is not directly involved in the repair of UV-damaged DNA but protects
           cells from oxidative stress by regulating gene expressions in human cell
           lines
    • Authors: Tomita T; Ieguchi K, Takita M, et al.
      Pages: 415 - 426
      Abstract: A small nuclear protein, C1D, has roles in various cellular processes, transcription regulation, genome stability surveillance, DNA repair and RNA processing, all of which are required to maintain the host life cycles. In the previous report, C1D directly interacts with XPB, a component of the nucleotide excision repair complex, and C1D knockdown reduced cell survival of 27-1 cells, CHO derivative cells, after UV irradiation. To find out the role of C1D in UV-damaged cells, we used human cell lines with siRNA or shRNA to knockdown C1D. C1D knockdown reduced cell survival rates of LU99 and 786-O after UV irradiation, although C1D knockdown did not affect the efficiency of the nucleotide excision repair. Immunostaining data support that C1D is not directly involved in the DNA repair process in UV-damaged cells. However, H2O2 treatment reduced cell viability in LU99 and 786-O cells. We also found that C1D knockdown upregulated DDIT3 expression in LU99 cells and downregulated APEX1 in 786-O cells, suggesting that C1D functions as a co-repressor/activator. The data accounts for the reduction of cell survival rates upon UV irradiation.

  • Metabolomics approach in lung tissue of septic rats and the interventional
           effects of Xuebijing injection using UHPLC-Q-Orbitrap-HRMS
    • Authors: Xu T; Zhou L, Shi Y, et al.
      Pages: 427 - 435
      Abstract: Sepsis is the dysregulated host response to an infection which leads to life-threatening organ dysfunction. Metabolomic profiling in bio-fluid or tissue is vital for elucidating the pathogenesis of sepsis and evaluating therapeutic effects of medication. In this study, an untargeted metabolomics approach was applied to study the metabolic changes in lung tissue of septic rats induced by cecal ligation and puncture (CLP) and investigate the treatment effects of Xubijing injection (XBJ). Metabolomics analyses were performed on ultra-high performance liquid chromatography-Q Exactive hybrid quadrupole-orbitrap high-resolution accurate mass spectrometry (UHPLC-Q-Orbitrap-HRMS) together with multivariate statistical analysis. A total of 26 differential metabolites between CLP and sham-operated group were identified. The altered metabolic pathways included energy metabolism, amino metabolism, lipid metabolism, fatty acid metabolism and hormone metabolism. Among the 26-varied metabolites, 15 were significantly regulated after XBJ treatment. The metabolic pathway network of sepsis was drawn to interpret the pathological feature of lung damage caused by sepsis and the underlying regulating mechanism of XBJ on the molecular levels. Our findings display that LC-MS-based metabolomics is a useful tool for uncovering the underlying molecular mechanism of sepsis, and XBJ may exert therapeutic effect by regulating multiple metabolic pathways.

  • A newly isolated Pex7-binding, atypical PTS2 protein P7BP2 is a novel
           dynein-type AAA+ protein
    • Authors: Niwa H; Miyauchi-Nanri Y, Okumoto K, et al.
      Pages: 437 - 447
      Abstract: A newly isolated binding protein of peroxisomal targeting signal type 2 (PTS2) receptor Pex7, termed P7BP2, is transported into peroxisomes by binding to the longer isoform of Pex5p, Pex5pL, via Pex7p. The binding to Pex7p and peroxisomal localization of P7BP2 depends on the cleavable PTS2 in the N-terminal region, suggesting that P7BP2 is a new PTS2 protein. By search on human database, three AAA+ domains are found in the N-terminal half of P7BP2. Protein sequence alignment and motif search reveal that in the C-terminal region P7BP2 contains additional structural domains featuring weak but sufficient homology to AAA+ domain. P7BP2 behaves as a monomer in gel-filtration chromatography and the single molecule observed under atomic force microscope shapes a disc-like ring. Collectively, these results suggest that P7BP2 is a novel dynein-type AAA+ family protein, of which domains are arranged into a pseudo-hexameric ring structure.

  • Function of the amino-terminal region of human MCM4 in helicase activity
    • Authors: Wang X; Ishimi Y.
      Pages: 449 - 460
      Abstract: The amino-terminal region of eukaryotic MCM4 is characteristic of the presence of a number of phosphorylation sites for CDK and DDK, suggesting that the region plays regulatory roles in the MCM2-7 helicase function. However, the roles are not fully understood. We analyzed the role of the amino-terminal region of human MCM4 by using MCM4/6/7 helicase as a model for MCM2-7 helicase. First we found that deletion of 35 amino acids at the amino-terminal end resulted in inhibition of DNA helicase activity of the MCM4/6/7 complex. Conversion of arginine at amino acid no. 10 and 11 to alanine had similar effect to the deletion mutant of Δ1-35, suggesting that these arginine play a role in the DNA helicase activity. The data suggest that expression of these mutant MCM4 in HeLa cells perturbed the progression of the S phase. Substitution of six CDK phosphorylation sites (3, 7, 19, 32, 54 and 110) in the amino-terminal region by phospho-mimetic glutamic acids affected the hexamer formation of the MCM4/6/7 complex. MCM4 phosphorylation by CDK may play a role in DNA replication licensing system, and the present results suggest that the phosphorylation interferes MCM function by lowering stability of MCM complex.

  • Long non-coding RNA Linc00662 promotes cell invasion and contributes to
           cancer stem cell-like phenotypes in lung cancer cells
    • Authors: Gong W; Su Y, Liu Y, et al.
      Pages: 461 - 469
      Abstract: Long non-coding RNAs (lncRNAs) is essential in regulation of cancer cell and cancer stem cells (CSCs) behaviour. Linc00662 is a newly identified human lung cancer related lncRNA. In this study, we aimed to explore the function of Linc00662 in human lung cancer. The expression level of Linc00662 was analysed by quantitative real-time PCR. Cell metastasis and invasive ability were detected by transwell and scratch wound healing assays. The stemness of CSCs was shown by tumorsphere formation assay and flow cytometry. The interaction between Linc00662 and Lin28 was confirmed by RNA immunoprecipitation and RNA pulldown assay. Overexpression of Linc00662 promoted the poor prognosis of lung cancer. Cell invasion, metastasis and CSCs stemness in H1299 and A549 could be influenced by Linc00662. Linc00662 had direct interaction with Lin28, and the Linc00662 function was dependent on Lin28. We demonstrate that overexpression of Linc00662 enhances lung cancer cell metastasis and CSC stemness by interacting with Lin28 in human lung cancer, which could be utilized as a potential diagnostic and therapeutic target for lung cancer patients.

  • Generation of an anti-desmoglein 3 antibody without pathogenic activity of
           
    • Authors: Funahashi S; Kawai S, Fujii E, et al.
      Pages: 471 - 481
      Abstract: It is ideal for the target antigen of a cytotoxic therapeutic antibody against cancer to be cancer-specific, but such antigens are rare. Thus an alternative strategy for target selection is necessary. Desmoglein 3 (DSG3) is highly expressed in lung squamous cell carcinoma, while it is well-known that anti-DSG3 antibodies cause pemphigus vulgaris, an autoimmune disease. We evaluated DSG3 as a novel target by selecting an epitope that exerts efficacy against cancer with no pathogenic effects in normal tissues. Pathogenic anti-DSG3 antibodies induce skin blisters by inhibiting the cell–cell interaction in a Ca2+-dependent manner. We screened anti-DSG3 antibodies that bind DGS3 independent of Ca2+ and have high antibody-dependent cell cytotoxicity (ADCC) activity against DSG3-expressing cells. These selected antibodies did not inhibit cell–cell interaction and showed ADCC activity against squamous cell carcinoma cell lines. Furthermore, one of the DSG3 antibodies showed anti-tumour activity in tumour mouse models but did not induce adverse effects such as blister formation in the skin. Thus it was possible to generate an antibody against DSG3 by using an appropriate epitope that retained efficacy with no pathogenicity. This approach of epitope selection may expand the variety of druggable target molecules.
