Reading Bond Films through the Lens of “Religion”

Teemu Taira
“Religion” has been absent from the study of James Bond films. Similarly, James Bond has been absent from studies on religion and popular culture. This article aims to fill the gap by examining 25 Bond films through the lens of “religion”. The analysis suggests that there are a number of references to “religion” in Bond films, although “religion” is typically not a main topic of the films. Furthermore, there is a detectable pattern in the...

Parathyroid hormone-related protein activates HSCs via hedgehog signalling during liver fibrosis development

Shuying He, Jing Tang, Na Diao, Yan Liao, Jie Shi, Xiaoping Xu, Fang Xie & Lan Bai
Recently, we showed that parathyroid hormone-like hormone (PTHLH), a cytokine-like polyprotein, is critical for extracellular matrix (ECM) deposition through the activation of hepatic stellate cells (HSCs). Here, we show that N-terminal PTHLH is secreted into the supernatant of injured hepatocytes, its expression is positively correlated with liver fibrosis severity based on mice liver biopsies, and it is primarily expressed in the cytoplasm of hepatocytes along the fibrous septa of fibrotic livers. PTHLH overexpression in mice...
