Unraveling the Role of Arg4 and Arg6 in the Auto‐Inhibition Mechanism of GSK3β From Molecular Dynamics Simulation
TLDR
The structural consequences of GSK3β R4A and R6A mutations and the atomic changes that influenced the loss of PKB‐binding affinity are demonstrated and can explain the auto‐inhibition of G SK3β and maybe facilitate type 2 diabetes mellitus researches and in developing the potent drug therapies.
MCL-1 - Guardian of the Ovarian Reserve: Characterization of the Contribution of MCL-1 to Oocyte Survival
TLDR
The phenotype caused by oocyte-specific Mcl-1-deficiency is characterized, its role in the maintenance of the primordial follicle pool, growing oocyte survival and oocyte quality is determined, and MCL-1 is identified as a pro-survival target of these pathways in oocytes.
GSK-3 Inhibition: A Novel Approach to Sensitization of Chemo-resistant Pancreatic Cancer Cells
TLDR
It is shown that while blocking GSK-3 disrupts NF-κB, and has anti-survival effects on pancreatic cancer cells, it does not sensitize to the chemotherapeutic drug gemcitabine.
Macrophage Function and the Role of GSK3
TLDR
Recent findings that have contributed to the understanding of how GSK3 regulates macrophage function are summarized, and the role of GK3 in the development of metabolic disorders and diseases is discussed.
The Synergistic Enhancement of Cloning Efficiency in Individualized Human Pluripotent Stem Cells by Peroxisome Proliferative-activated Receptor-γ (PPARγ) Activation and Rho-associated Kinase (ROCK) Inhibition*
TLDR
It is shown that pioglitazone, a selective peroxisome proliferative-activated receptor-γ agonist, along with Y-27632 synergistically diminished dissociation-induced apoptosis and increased cloning efficiency (2–3-fold versus Y- 27632) without affecting pluripotency of hPSCs.
The redox sensitive glycogen synthase kinase 3β suppresses the self-protective antioxidant response in podocytes upon oxidative glomerular injury
TLDR
The data suggest that GSK3β is dispensable forglomerular function and histology under normal circumstances but may serve as a therapeutic target for protecting from oxidative glomerular injuries.
The Role of Glycogen Synthase Kinase 3-β in Immunity and Cell Cycle: Implications in Esophageal Cancer
TLDR
The current understanding of GSK3β signaling, and its control of the expression and activation of various transcription factors that mediate the inflammatory response are discussed.
