PKA phosphorylates and inactivates AMPKα to promote efficient lipolysis
The mobilization of metabolic energy from adipocytes depends on a tightly regulated balance between hydrolysis and resynthesis of triacylglycerides (TAGs). Hydrolysis is stimulated by β‐adrenergicExpand

Inhibition of de novo NAD(+) synthesis by oncogenic URI causes liver tumorigenesis through DNA damage.
Molecular mechanisms responsible for hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC) remain largely unknown. Using genetically engineered mouse models, we show that hepatocyte-specific expression of unconventionalExpand

Metabolic Inflammation-Associated IL-17A Causes Non-alcoholic Steatohepatitis and Hepatocellular Carcinoma.
Obesity increases hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC) risks via unknown mediators. We report that hepatic unconventional prefoldin RPB5 interactor (URI) couples nutrient surpluses to inflammation andExpand

Production of cytokines by monocytes, epithelial and endothelial cells activated by Streptococcus bovis.
There are numerous reports documenting the correlation between Streptococcus bovis bacteraemia and endocarditis in conjunction with colonic diseases. The adherence of S. bovis to either buccal orExpand

URI is an oncogene amplified in ovarian cancer cells and is required for their survival.
Abrogation of negative feedback control represents a fundamental requirement for aberrantly activated signaling pathways to promote malignant transformation and resistance to therapy. Here weExpand

Regulation of OGT by URI in Response to Glucose Confers c-MYC-Dependent Survival Mechanisms.
Cancer cells can adapt and survive under low nutrient conditions, but underlying mechanisms remain poorly explored. We demonstrate here that glucose maintains a functional complex between theExpand

MCRS1 binds and couples Rheb to amino acid-dependent mTORC1 activation.
Ras homolog enriched in brain (Rheb) is critical for mechanistic target of rapamycin complex 1 (mTORC1) activation in response to growth factors and amino acids (AAs). Whereas growth factors inhibitExpand

S6K1-mediated disassembly of mitochondrial URI/PP1gamma complexes activates a negative feedback program that counters S6K1 survival signaling.
S6 kinase 1 (S6K1) acts to integrate nutrient and growth factor signals to promote cell growth but also cell survival as a mitochondria-tethered protein kinase that phosphorylates and inactivates theExpand

Platelet GPIbα is a mediator and potential interventional target for NASH and subsequent liver cancer
Non-alcoholic fatty liver disease ranges from steatosis to non-alcoholic steatohepatitis (NASH), potentially progressing to cirrhosis and hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC). Here, we show that plateletExpand

Regulation of Androgen Receptor-Mediated Transcription by RPB5 Binding Protein URI/RMP
ABSTRACT Androgen receptor (AR)-mediated transcription is modulated by interaction with coregulatory proteins. We demonstrate that the unconventional prefoldin RPB5 interactor (URI) is a newExpand
