The androgen receptor (AR) is a transcription factor that has a pivotal role in the occurrence and progression of prostate cancer. The AR is activated by androgens that bind to its ligand-binding domain (LBD), causing the transcription factor to enter the nucleus and interact with genes via its conserved DNA-binding domain (DBD). Treatment for prostate(More)
Histone H3 lysine 36 methylation is a ubiquitous hallmark of productive transcription elongation. Despite the prevalence of this histone posttranslational modification, however, the downstream functions triggered by this mark are not well understood. In this study, we showed that H3K36 methylation promoted the chromatin interaction of the Isw1b(More)
INTRODUCTION We have previously found an increased mast cell density in tendon biopsies from patients with patellar tendinopathy compared to controls. This study examined the influence of mast cells on basic tenocyte functions, including production of the inflammatory mediator prostaglandin E2 (PGE2), extracellular matrix remodeling and matrix(More)
There is a long-term discussion in the literature concerning the possible link between the improved efficacy of clozapine treatment and elevated plasma triglyceride levels, but no mechanistic studies have been performed to date. The aim of this work was to investigate whether the postprandial hypertriglyceridemia affects the pharmacokinetics and brain(More)
OBJECTIVE Clinical studies have suggested an association between dyslipidemia and tendon injuries or chronic tendon pain; the mechanisms underlying this association are not yet known. The objectives of this study were (1) to evaluate the impact of a high fat diet on the function of load-bearing tendons and on the distribution in tendons of oxidized low(More)
The purpose of this study was to determine whether administration of a mast cell inhibitor (sodium cromolyn, SC) would influence tendon repair and extracellular matrix gene expression following acute injury. CD1 mouse patellar tendons were unilaterally injured and mast cell prevalence was determined. The effect of SC injection on tendon hypercellularity,(More)
The androgen receptor (AR) is a member of the nuclear receptor superfamily of transcription factors and is central to prostate cancer (PCa) progression. Ligand-activated AR engages androgen response elements (AREs) at androgen-responsive genes to drive the expression of gene batteries involved in cell proliferation and cell fate. Understanding the(More)
Human androgen receptor (AR) is a hormone-activated transcription factor that is an important drug target in the treatment of prostate cancer. Current small-molecule AR antagonists, such as enzalutamide, compete with androgens that bind to the steroid-binding pocket of the AR ligand-binding domain (LBD). In castration-resistant prostate cancer (CRPC), drug(More)
