K-Ras dependent non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC) cells are 'addicted' to basal autophagy that reprograms cellular metabolism in a lysosomal-sensitive manner. Here we demonstrate that the xenophagy-associated kinase TBK1 drives basal autophagy, consistent with its known requirement in K-Ras-dependent NSCLC proliferation. Furthermore, basal autophagy in(More)
Competitive N-methyl-d-aspartate receptor (NMDAR) antagonists bind to the GluN2 subunit, of which there are four types (GluN2A-D). We report that some N(1)-substituted derivatives of cis-piperazine-2,3-dicarboxylic acid display improved relative affinity for GluN2C and GluN2D versus GluN2A and GluN2B. These derivatives also display subtype selectivity among(More)
Kainate receptors (KARs) modulate synaptic transmission and plasticity, and their dysfunction has been linked to several disease states such as epilepsy and chronic pain. KARs are tetramers formed from five different subunits. GluK1-3 are low affinity kainate binding subunits, whereas GluK4/5 bind kainate with high affinity. A number of these subunits can(More)
