  • Stat1 activation attenuates IL-6 induced Stat3 activity but does not alter apoptosis sensitivity in multiple myeloma
  • 2012
  • Ingår i: BMC Cancer. - : BioMed Central (BMC). - 1471-2407 .- 1471-2407. ; 12, s. 318-
  • Tidskriftsartikel (refereegranskat)abstract
    • Background: Multiple myeloma (MM) is at present an incurable malignancy, characterized by apoptosis-resistant tumor cells. Interferon (IFN) treatment sensitizes MM cells to Fas-induced apoptosis and is associated with an increased activation of Signal transducer and activator of transcription (Stat)1. The role of Stat1 in MM has not been elucidated, but Stat1 has in several studies been ascribed a pro-apoptotic role. Conversely, IL-6 induction of Stat3 is known to confer resistance to apoptosis in MM. Methods: To delineate the role of Stat1 in IFN mediated sensitization to apoptosis, sub-lines of the U-266-1970 MM cell line with a stable expression of the active mutant Stat1C were utilized. The influence of Stat1C constitutive transcriptional activation on endogenous Stat3 expression and activation, and the expression of apoptosis-related genes were analyzed. To determine whether Stat1 alone would be an important determinant in sensitizing MM cells to apoptosis, the U-266-1970-Stat1C cell line and control cells were exposed to high throughput compound screening (HTS). Results: To explore the role of Stat1 in IFN mediated apoptosis sensitization of MM, we established sublines of the MM cell line U-266-1970 constitutively expressing the active mutant Stat1C. We found that constitutive nuclear localization and transcriptional activity of Stat1 was associated with an attenuation of IL-6-induced Stat3 activation and up-regulation of mRNA for the pro-apoptotic Bcl-2 protein family genes Harakiri, the short form of Mcl-1 and Noxa. However, Stat1 activation alone was not sufficient to sensitize cells to Fas-induced apoptosis. In a screening of > 3000 compounds including bortezomib, dexamethasone, etoposide, suberoylanilide hydroxamic acid (SAHA), geldanamycin (17-AAG), doxorubicin and thalidomide, we found that the drug response and IC50 in cells constitutively expressing active Stat1 was mainly unaltered. Conclusion: We conclude that Stat1 alters IL-6 induced Stat3 activity and the expression of pro-apoptotic genes. However, this shift alone is not sufficient to alter apoptosis sensitivity in MM cells, suggesting that Stat1 independent pathways are operative in IFN mediated apoptosis sensitization.

  • X-ray structure of human aquaporin 2 and its implications for nephrogenic diabetes insipidus and trafficking.
  • 2014
  • Ingår i: Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences of the United States of America. - : National Acad Sciences. - 1091-6490. ; 111:17, s. 6305-10

    • Human aquaporin 2 (AQP2) is a water channel found in the kidney collecting duct, where it plays a key role in concentrating urine. Water reabsorption is regulated by AQP2 trafficking between intracellular storage vesicles and the apical membrane. This process is tightly controlled by the pituitary hormone arginine vasopressin and defective trafficking results in nephrogenic diabetes insipidus (NDI). Here we present the X-ray structure of human AQP2 at 2.75 Å resolution. The C terminus of AQP2 displays multiple conformations with the C-terminal α-helix of one protomer interacting with the cytoplasmic surface of a symmetry-related AQP2 molecule, suggesting potential protein-protein interactions involved in cellular sorting of AQP2. Two Cd(2+)-ion binding sites are observed within the AQP2 tetramer, inducing a rearrangement of loop D, which facilitates this interaction. The locations of several NDI-causing mutations can be observed in the AQP2 structure, primarily situated within transmembrane domains and the majority of which cause misfolding and ER retention. These observations provide a framework for understanding why mutations in AQP2 cause NDI as well as structural insights into AQP2 interactions that may govern its trafficking.

  • Production, characterization and crystallization of the Plasmodium falciparum aquaporin.
  • 2008
  • Ingår i: Protein expression and purification. - 1096-0279 .- 1046-5928. ; 59:1, s. 69-78

    • The causative agent of malaria, Plasmodium falciparum posses a single aquaglyceroporin (PfAQP) which represents a potential drug target for treatment of the disease. PfAQP is localized to the parasite membrane to transport water, glycerol, ammonia and possibly glycolytic intermediates. In order to enable design of inhibitors we set out to determine the 3D structure of PfAQP, where the first bottleneck to overcome is achieving high enough yield of recombinant protein. The wild type PfAQP gene was expressed to low or undetectable levels in the expression hosts, Escherichia coli and Pichia pastoris, which was assumed to be due to different genomic A+T content and different codon usage. Thus, two codon-optimized PfAQP genes were generated. The Opt-PfAQP for E. coli still did not result in high production yields, possibly due to folding problems. However, PfAQP optimized for P. pastoris was successfully expressed in P. pastoris for production and in Saccharomyces cerevisiae for functional studies. In S. cerevisiae, PfAQP mediated glycerol transport but unexpectedly water transport could not be confirmed. Following high-level membrane-localized expression in P. pastoris (estimated to 64mg PfAQP per liter cell culture) PfAQP was purified to homogeneity (18mg/L) and initial attempts at crystallization of the protein yielded several different forms.

  • Accuracy in local staging of prostate cancer by adding a three-dimensional T2-weighted sequence with radial reconstructions in magnetic resonance imaging
  • 2018
  • Ingår i: Acta radiologica open. - : Sage Publications. - 2058-4601. ; 7:2
  • Tidskriftsartikel (refereegranskat)abstract
    • Background: The evidence supporting the use of magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) in prostate cancer detection has been established, but its accuracy in local staging is questioned. Purpose: To investigate the additional value of multi-planar radial reconstructions of a three-dimensional (3D) T2-weighted (T2W) MRI sequence, intercepting the prostate capsule perpendicularly, for improving local staging of prostate cancer. Material and Methods: Preoperative, bi-parametric prostate MRI examinations in 94 patients operated between June 2014 and January 2015 where retrospectively reviewed by two experienced abdominal radiologists. Each patient was presented in two separate sets including diffusion-weighted imaging, without and with the 3D T2W set that included radial reconstructions. Each set was read at least two months apart. Extraprostatic tumor extension (EPE) was assessed according to a 5-point grading scale. Sensitivity and specificity for EPE was calculated and presented as receiver operating characteristics (ROC) with area under the curve (AUC), using histology from whole-mount prostate specimen as gold standard. Inter-rater agreement was calculated for the two different reading modes using Cohen's kappa. Results: The AUC for detection of EPE for Readers 1 and 2 in the two-dimensional (2D) set was 0.70 and 0.68, respectively, and for the 2D+3D set 0.62 and 0.65, respectively. Inter-rater agreement (Reader 1 vs. Reader 2) on EPE using Cohen's kappa for the 2D and 2D+3D set, respectively, was 0.42 and 0.17 (i.e. moderate and poor agreement, respectively). Conclusion: The addition of 3D T2W MRI with radial reconstructions did not improve local staging in prostate cancer.

  • Barriers for industrial implementation of in-process monitoring of weld penetration for quality control
  • 2017
  • Ingår i: The International Journal of Advanced Manufacturing Technology. - 0268-3768 .- 1433-3015. ; 91:5-8, s. 2427-2434
  • Tidskriftsartikel (refereegranskat)abstract
    • The research conducted sheds a light on the question why robust in-process monitoring and adaptive control are not fully implemented in the welding industry. In the research project FaRoMonitA, the possibilities to monitor the weld quality during welding have been investigated. Research conducted in this area has merely focused on technical issues investigated in a laboratory environment. To advance the research front and release some barriers related to industrial acceptance, the studies conducted in this paper have been both quantitative and qualitative in form of experiments combined with an interview study. The quality property weld penetration depth was chosen for in-process monitoring to evaluate the industrial relevance and applicability. A guaranteed weld penetration depth is critical for companies producing parts influenced by fatigue. The parts studied were fillet welds produced by gas metal arc welding. The experiments show that there is a relationship between final penetration depth and monitored arc voltage signals and images captured by CMOS vision and infrared cameras during welding. There are still technical issues to be solved to reach a robust solution. The interview study indicates that soft issues, like competence and financial aspects, are just as critical.

  • Herbal melanin activates TLR4/NF-kappaB signaling pathway
  • 2009
  • Ingår i: Phytomedicine. - 0944-7113 .- 1618-095X. ; 16:5, s. 477-84

    • Expression of many pro-inflammatory cytokines is controlled by the NF-kappaB signaling pathway. NF-kappaB is induced by LPS through activation of TLR4. Melanins extracted from fungal, plant and human sources modulate cytokine production and activate NF-kappaB pathway. We showed that a herbal melanin (HM) from Nigella sativa L. modulates cytokine production and suggested it as a ligand for TLR4. In this study we investigated the possibility that the HM-induced cytokine production is via an NF-kappaB signaling pathway. We found that HM induced the degradation of IkappaBalpha, a key step in the activation of NF-kappaB. Moreover, addition of IkappaB kinase (IKK) specific inhibitors effectively inhibited the observed HM-induced production of IL-8 and IL-6 by TLR4-transfected HEK293 cells and THP-1 cells. Our results have also shown that HM induced cleavage of caspase 8, and that this cleavage was partially abrogated by IKK inhibitors. We suggest that HM can modulate the inflammatory response by inducing IL-8 and IL-6 production via TLR4-dependent activation of the NF-kappaB signaling pathway.
