The Warburg effect describes how cancer cells down-regulate their aerobic respiration and preferentially use glycolysis to generate energy. To evaluate the link between hypoxia and Warburg effect, we studied mitochondrial electron transport, angiogenesis and glycolysis in pheochromocytomas induced by germ-line mutations in VHL, RET, NF1 and SDH genes.

Primary aldosteronism is the most common form of secondary hypertension. Somatic mutations in KCNJ5, ATP1A1, ATP2B3, and CACNA1D are found in aldosterone-producing adenoma. In addition, adrenals with aldosterone-producing adenomas show cortical remodeling and frequently multiple secondary nodules. Our aim was to investigate whether different(More)
In this study, we explored the capacity of the naturally occurring compound solasodine to promote neurogenesis in vitro and in vivo. Mouse embryonic teratocarcinoma P19 cells exposed to solasodine for 2 days followed by a 5-day washout differentiated into cholinergic neurons that expressed specific neuronal markers and displayed important axonal formation(More)
