1.The Effects of Transmembrane α-Helix Length and Concentration on Phase Behavior in Four-Component Lipid Mixtures: A Molecular Dynamics Study.
Ackerman DG, Feigenson GW. J Phys Chem B. 2016 Apr 15. [Epub ahead of print]
We used coarse-grained molecular dynamics simulations to examine the effects of transmembrane α-helical WALP peptides on the behavior of four-component lipid mixtures. These mixtures contain a high-melting temperature (high-Tm) lipid, a nanodomain-inducing low-Tm lipid, a macrodomain-inducing low-Tm lipid and cholesterol to model the outer leaflet of cell plasma membranes. In a series of simulations, we incrementally replace the nanodomain-inducing low-Tm lipid by the macrodomain-inducing low-Tm lipid and measure how lipid and phase properties are altered by the addition of WALPs of different length. Regardless of the ratio of the two low-Tm lipids, shorter WALPs increase domain size and all WALPs increase domain alignment between the two leaflets. These effects are smallest for the longest WALP tested, and increase with increasing WALP concentration. Thus our simulations explain the experimental observation that WALPs induce macroscopic domains in otherwise nanodomain-forming lipid-only mixtures (unpublished).
2.LXR agonist T0901317 upregulates thrombomodulin expression in glomerular endothelial cells by inhibition of nuclear factor‑κB.
Ding H1, Li Y1, Feng Y1, Chen J1, Zhong X1, Wang N2, Wang W1, Zhang P1, Wang L1. Mol Med Rep. 2016 Apr 15. doi: 10.3892/mmr.2016.5138. [Epub ahead of print]
Dysfunction of glomerular endothelial cells (GECs) induces a variety of symptoms, including proteinuria, inflammation, vascular diseases, fibrosis and thrombosis. Thrombomodulin (TM) acts as a vasoprotective molecule on the surface of the vascular endothelial cells to maintain the homeostasis of the endothelial microenvironment by suppressing cellular proliferation, adhesion and inflammatory responses. Liver X receptor (LXR), a nuclear receptor (NR) and a bile acid‑activated transcription factor, regulates metabolism and cholesterol transport, vascular tension and inflammation. Previous studies indicated that TM expression is upregulated by various NRs; however, it is unclear whether pharmacological modulation of LXR may affect TM expression and GEC function. The current study revealed that LXR activation by its agonist, T0901317, upregulates the expression and activity of TM. This effect was mediated specifically through LXR‑α, and not through LXR‑β.
3.Retinoid regulated macrophage cholesterol efflux involves the steroidogenic acute regulatory protein.
Manna PR1. Data Brief. 2016 Mar 19;7:940-5. doi: 10.1016/j.dib.2016.03.055. eCollection 2016.
Elimination of excess cholesteryl esters from macrophage-derived foam cells is known to be a key process in limiting plaque stability and progression of atherosclerotic lesions. We have recently demonstrated that regulation of retinoid mediated cholesterol efflux is influenced by liver X receptor (LXR) signaling in mouse macrophages (Manna, P.R. et al., 2015, Biochem. Biophys. Res. Commun., 464:312-317). The data presented in this article evaluate the importance of the steroidogenic acute regulatory protein (StAR) in retinoid mediated macrophage cholesterol efflux. Overexpression of StAR in mouse RAW 264.7 macrophages increased the effects of both all-trans retinoic acid (atRA) and 9-cis RA on cholesterol efflux, suggesting StAR enhances the efficacy of retinoic acid receptor (RAR) and/or retinoid X receptor (RXR) ligands. Additional data revealed that atRA enhances (Bu)2cAMP induced StAR and ATP-binding cassette transporter A1 protein levels.
4.Association Between Hemodiafiltration and Hypoalbuminemia in Middle-Age Hemodialysis Patients.
Weng CH1, Hsu CW, Hu CC, Yen TH, Huang WH. Medicine (Baltimore). 2016 Apr;95(15):e3334.
The advantage of hemodiafiltration (HDF) is well known. One of the disadvantages of HDF is loss of serum albumin, but this issue is still obscure. Some risk factors associated with mortality were age dependent. Studies on serum albumin/hypoalbuminemia and HDF in different age stratification were limited. The aim of this cross-sectional study was to assess the role of HDF and other clinical variables on serum albumin values in maintenance hemodialysis (MHD) patients of different age groups.We recruited a total of 1216 patients on MHD. Patients were divided into 4 groups by age stratification of youth (<30 years old), young-middle age (30-44 years old), middle age (45-64 years old), and old age (≥65  years old). Biochemical, hematological, nutritional, inflammatory parameters, and receiving HDF or not were recorded. The associations between age groups, HDF, and variables mentioned above were analyzed.Only in middle-age group, patients with HDF was significantly (P = 0.
