BACKGROUND Secretoneurin (SN) levels are increased in patients with heart failure (HF), but whether SN provides prognostic information and influences cardiomyocyte function is unknown. OBJECTIVES This study sought to evaluate the merit of SN as a cardiovascular biomarker and assess effects of SN on cardiomyocyte Ca(2+) handling. METHODS We assessed the(More)
The function of protein phosphatase 1 nuclear-targeting subunit (PNUTS)--one of the most abundant nuclear-targeting subunits of protein phosphatase 1 (PP1c)--remains largely uncharacterized. We show that PNUTS depletion by small interfering RNA activates a G2 checkpoint in unperturbed cells and prolongs G2 checkpoint and Chk1 activation after(More)
The major histocompatibility complex (MHC) class I and II molecules perform vital functions in innate and adaptive immune responses towards invading pathogens. MHC class I molecules load peptides in the endoplasmatic reticulum (ER) and display them to the T cell receptors (TcR) on CD8(+) T lymphocytes. MHC class II molecules (MHC II) acquire their peptides(More)
Early endosomal antigen 1 (EEA1) is a cytosolic protein that specifically binds to early endosomal membranes where it has a crucial role in the tethering process leading to homotypic endosome fusion. Green fluorescent protein-tagged EEA1 (EEA1-GFP) was bound to the endosomal membrane throughout the cell cycle, and measurements using fluorescent recovery(More)
The regulation of Rab expression to modulate cellular function has recently been proposed. Dendritic cells are a prototypic example of cells that drastically alter their function in response to environmental cues by reducing endocytosis, secreting cytokines, changing surface protein repertoires and altering morphology and migration. This is not a binary(More)
Plasma cells (PCs) produce antibodies that mediate immunity after infection or vaccination. In contrast to PCs in the bone marrow, PCs in the gut have been considered short lived. In this study, we studied PC dynamics in the human small intestine by cell-turnover analysis in organ transplants and by retrospective cell birth dating measuring carbon-14 in(More)
DCs are potent initiators of adaptive immune responses toward invading pathogens. Upon reception of pathogenic stimuli, DCs initiate a complex differentiation program, culminating in mature DCs with an extreme capacity to activate naïve T cells. During this maturation, DCs reduce the synthesis and turnover of MHC II molecules. This allows for a stable(More)
Protective T-cell responses depend on efficient presentation of antigen (Ag) in the context of major histocompatibility complex class I (MHCI) and class II (MHCII) molecules. Invariant chain (Ii) serves as a chaperone for MHCII molecules and mediates trafficking to the endosomal pathway. The genetic exchange of the class II-associated Ii peptide (CLIP) with(More)
Mounting adaptive immune responses requires the cell surface expression of major histocompatibility class II molecules (MHC II) loaded with antigenic peptide. However, in the absence of antigenic stimuli, the surface population of MHC II is highly dynamic and exhibits a high turnover. Several studies have focused on the regulation of MHC II, and it is now(More)
The RNA polymerase I transcription apparatus acquires and integrates the combined information from multiple cellular signalling cascades to regulate ribosome production essential for cell growth and proliferation. In the present study, we show that a subpopulation of A-kinase anchoring protein 95 (AKAP95) targets the nucleolus during interphase and is(More)
