Autophagy Loss Impedes Cancer-Associated Fibroblast Activation via Downregulating Proline Biosynthesis

Jingru Bai, Tong Liu, Bo Tu, Meng Yuan, Zhaoqi Shu, Minghe Fan, Sihan Huo, Yuyao Guo, Lina Wang, Hua Wang & Ying Zhao
Cancer-associated fibroblasts (CAFs) are considered one of the most critical stromal cells that interact with pancreatic ductal adenocarcinoma (PDAC) and promote tumor growth, metastasis, and treatment resistance. Previous studies illustrated macroautophagy/autophagy contributes to CAF activation during tumor progression. Here in our study, we found that autophagy deficiency in CAFs impedes CAF activation by inhibiting proline biosynthesis and collagen production. Furthermore, we uncovered that autophagy promotes proline biosynthesis through mitophagy-mediated regulation of NADK2 (NAD kinase 2,...

Proteotoxic stress disrupts epithelial integrity by inducing MTOR sequestration and autophagy overactivation

Xiaoxiang Cheng, Pei Zhang, Hongyu Zhao, Hui Zheng, Kai Zheng, Hong Zhang & Hongjie Zhang
Macroautophagy/autophagy, an evolutionarily conserved degradation system, serves to clear intracellular components through the lysosomal pathway. Mounting evidence has revealed cytoprotective roles of autophagy; however, the intracellular causes of overactivated autophagy, which has cytotoxic effects, remain elusive. Here we show that sustained proteotoxic stress induced by loss of the RING and Kelch repeat-containing protein C53A5.6/RIKE-1 induces sequestration of LET-363/MTOR complex and overactivation of autophagy, and consequently impairs epithelial integrity in C. elegans. In C53A5.6/RIKE-1-deficient animals, blocking...

Silu Wang, Bowei Wang, Kun Dong, Jing Li, Yadong Li & Haiyue Sun
Blueberries are rich in anthocyanins, which are plant-specific secondary metabolites that are a good source of plant nutrients. Although anthocyanins have been investigated, there is a lack of comprehensive detailed research that includes large numbers of blueberry cultivars, and the anthocyanin compositions of some cultivars are still unknown. Consequently, we determined the anthocyanin compositions of 62 cultivars using ultra-performance liquid chromatography–mass spectrometry (UPLC–MS). In total, we identified 30 anthocyanins derived from five kinds of anthocyanidin....

Probability of Study Success (PrSS) Evaluation Based on Multiple Endpoints in Late Phase Oncology Drug Development

Zhen Zhang, Yong Lin & Jingyi Liu
Phase 2 Oncology clinical trials are increasingly designed with multiple primary endpoints, such as progression-free survival (PFS) and overall survival (OS). While this gives a clearer picture of treatment benefit than trials with a single endpoint, it complicates the decision to begin a registration (phase 3) trial following a phase 2 trial. Methods for calculating the probability of study success (PrSS) assume the distribution of OS is well understood, but rarely consider the case of...

Corporate social responsibility and trade credit during periods of monetary contraction

Daxin Dong & Peng Liu
This paper studies whether firms’ corporate social responsibility (CSR) affects their access to trade credit in response to monetary contraction shocks. Based on US firm-level data from 1995Q1 to 2014Q1, we find that after monetary contraction shocks, firms with higher levels of CSR receive more trade credit than firms with lower levels of CSR. Moreover, the beneficial impact of CSR is stronger for firms in regions with higher social trust and in more competitive industries....

A growing number of studies showed that DEHP could exhibit long-term adverse health effects on the human body, particularly in the liver, kidneys, heart and reproductive systems. However, the impact of oral intake of DEHP on the nervous system is extremely limited. In the present study, the adult C57BL/6J male mice were intragastrically administered with two dosages of DEHP...

Molybdopterin biosynthesis pathway contributes to the regulation of SaeRS two-component system by ClpP in Staphylococcus aureus

Na Zhao, Yanan Wang, Junlan Liu, Ziyu Yang, Ying Jian, Hua Wang, Mahmoud Ahmed, Min Li, Taeok Bae & Qian Liu
In Staphylococcus aureus, the SaeRS two-component system is essential for the bacterium’s hemolytic activity and virulence. The Newman strain of S. aureus contains a variant of SaeS sensor kinase, SaeS L18P. Previously, we showed that, in the strain Newman, SaeS L18P is degraded by the membrane-bound protease FtsH. Intriguingly, the knockout mutation of clpP, encoding the cytoplasmic protease ClpP, greatly reduces the expression of SaeS L18P. Here, we report that, in the strain Newman, the...
