Therapy-induced lipid uptake and remodeling underpin ferroptosis hypersensitivity in prostate cancer
TLDR
This work provides mechanistic insight into processes of lipid metabolism that underpin the acquisition of therapy-induced GPX4 dependence and ferroptosis hypersensitivity to standard of care therapies in PCa and demonstrates novel strategies to suppress the therapy-tolerant state. Expand
Novel carfilzomib-based combinations as potential therapeutic strategies for liposarcomas
TLDR
It is found that liposarcomas (LPS) are susceptible to proteasome inhibition, and drugs that synergize with carfilzomib are identified, such as selinexor, an inhibitor of XPO1-mediated nuclear export and cyclosporin A, a known immunosuppressive agent. Expand
Therapy-induced lipid uptake and remodeling underpin ferroptosis hypersensitivity in prostate cancer
TLDR
This work provided mechanistic insight into processes of lipid metabolism that underpin the acquisition of therapy-induced GPX4 dependence and ferroptosis hypersensitivity to standard of care therapies in PCa and demonstrated novel strategies to suppress the therapy-tolerant state. Expand
De novo synthesized polyunsaturated fatty acids operate as both host immunomodulators and nutrients for Mycobacterium tuberculosis
TLDR
Findings suggest that Mtb’s hijacking of host-derived AA may counteract its stimulatory effect on anti-mycobacterial immune responses, and reveal AA as a major FA substrate for intracellular Mtb. Expand
Common genetic variants of the FADS1 FADS2 gene cluster and their reconstructed haplotypes are associated with the fatty acid composition in phospholipids.
TLDR
Carriers of the rare alleles of several SNPs and their respective haplotypes had a lower prevalence of allergic rhinitis and atopic eczema and no association was found for total and specific IgE levels. Expand
Apocryphal FADS2 activity promotes fatty acid diversification in cancer.
TLDR
Isomer-resolved lipidomics reveals the selective incorporation of these unusual fatty acids into complex structural lipids and identifies their presence in cancer tissues, indicating functional roles in membrane structure and signaling. Expand
Altered lipid metabolism marks glioblastoma stem and non-stem cells in separate tumor niches
TLDR
The results suggest that therapeutic targeting of GBM lipid metabolism must consider multiple separate tumor cell populations to be effective, and provide a methodologic framework for studying these metabolically diverse cellular populations. Expand
Anti-inflammatory and analgesic activities of 7-chloro-4-(piperazin-1-yl)quinoline derivative mediated by suppression of inflammatory mediators expression in both RAW 264.7 and mouse models
Background: 4-Aminoquinoline derivatives possess various potential biological properties such as anti-inflammatory and analgesic activity. The introduction of additional piperazine heterocyclicExpand
Anti-inflammatory and antimicrobial activities of the successive extracts of the aerial parts of Rumex pictus Forssk. growing in Egypt
TLDR
It is shown that Rumex pictus possesses anti-inflammatory and antimicrobial activities which reinforce its use in ethnomedicine. Expand
Bradyzoite and sexual stage development
TLDR
This advance addresses a major bottleneck for investigations and has opened the gates to a broader dissection of the sexual life cycle stages. Expand
