    • The proteins secreted by human cells (collectively referred to as the secretome) are important not only for the basic understanding of human biology but also for the identification of potential targets for future diagnostics and therapies. Here, we present a comprehensive analysis of proteins predicted to be secreted in human cells, which provides information about their final localization in the human body, including the proteins actively secreted to peripheral blood. The analysis suggests that a large number of the proteins of the secretome are not secreted out of the cell, but instead are retained intracellularly, whereas another large group of proteins were identified that are predicted to be retained locally at the tissue of expression and not secreted into the blood. Proteins detected in the human blood by mass spectrometry-based proteomics and antibody-based immuno-assays are also presented with estimates of their concentrations in the blood. The results are presented in an updated version 19 of the Human Protein Atlas in which each gene encoding a secretome protein is annotated to provide an open-access knowledge resource of the human secretome, including body-wide expression data, spatial localization data down to the single-cell and subcellular levels, and data about the presence of proteins that are detectable in the blood.

  • Association of Early β-Amyloid Accumulation and Neuroinflammation Measured With [11C]PBR28 in Elderly Individuals Without Dementia
  • 2021
  • Ingår i: Neurology. - : Wolters Kluwer. - 0028-3878 .- 1526-632X. ; 96:12, s. e1608-e1619
  • Tidskriftsartikel (refereegranskat)abstract
    • OBJECTIVE: To examine whether early β-amyloid (Aβ) accumulation and metabolic risk factors are associated with neuroinflammation in elderly individuals without dementia.METHODS: We examined 54 volunteers (mean age 70.0 years, 56% women, 51% APOE ɛ4 carriers) with the translocator protein (TSPO) tracer [11C]PBR28 to assess neuroinflammation and with [11C] Pittsburgh compound B (PiB) to assess cerebral Aβ accumulation. [11C]PBR28 and [11C]PiB standardized uptake value ratios (SUVRs) were quantified in 6 regions of interests by using the cerebellar cortex as a pseudo-reference and reference region, respectively. Fasting venous glucose, insulin, and high-sensitivity C-reactive protein (hs-CRP) values were determined. Homeostatic model assessment of insulin resistance (HOMA-IR) was calculated. A subset of individuals (n = 11) underwent CSF sampling, and Aβ40, Aβ42, total tau, phospho-tau, soluble TREM2, and YKL-40 levels were measured.RESULTS: Among the whole study group, no significant association was found between [11C]PiB and [11C]PBR28 SUVR composite scores (slope 0.02, p = 0.30). However, higher [11C]PiB binding was associated with higher [11C]PBR28 binding among amyloid-negative ([11C]PiB composite score ≤1.5) (TSPO genotype-, age- and sex-adjusted slope 0.26, p = 0.008) but not among amyloid-positive (slope -0.004, p = 0.88) participants. Higher CSF soluble TREM2 (rs = 0.72, p = 0.01) and YKL-40 (rs = 0.63, p = 0.04) concentrations were associated with a higher [11C]PBR28 composite score. Higher body mass index, HOMA-IR, and hs-CRP were associated with higher [11C]PBR28 binding in brain regions where Aβ accumulation is first detected in Alzheimer disease.CONCLUSIONS: While there was no association between amyloid and neuroinflammation in the overall study group, neuroinflammation was associated with amyloid among the subgroup at early stages of amyloid pathology.

  • Hepatic arterial therapy with oxaliplatin and systemic capecitabine for patients with liver metastases from breast cancer
  • 2019
  • Ingår i: Breast. - : Churchill Livingstone. - 0960-9776. ; 43, s. 113-119
  • Tidskriftsartikel (refereegranskat)abstract
    • Objectives: Hepatic arterial treatment (HAT) for liver metastases in patients with metastatic breast cancer (MBC) has only been investigated in few studies. Materials and methods: Two phase II trials were initiated simultaneously to evaluate capecitabine in combination with oxaliplatin in patients with MBC and liver metastases. These two trials are reported together. Continuous capecitabine (1300 mg/m2) was combined with oxaliplatin (85 mg/m2) alternating between systemic treatment and HAT followed by degradable starch microspheres with EmboCept® S every second week. Four patients participated in a pharmacokinetic analysis of oxaliplatin. Each patient had samples taken when receiving oxaliplatin systemically and as HAT with and without EmboCept® S. Results: Totally, 52 patients received HAT: 14 with liver metastases only and 38 patients with additional limited metastatic disease. The patients had previously received a median of 2 (range 0–6) chemotherapeutic regimens for MBC. The response rate was 42.3% (95% confidence interval (CI) 28.7–56.8%) with 7.7% complete and 34.6% partial responses. Median progression free survival was 10.8 months (95% CI 6.9–14.7 months) and median overall survival 27.6 months (95% CI 20.4–34.8 months). The toxicity was moderate with hand-foot syndrome (15.4%), neuropathy (9.6%), fatigue (9.6%), and abdominal pain (9.6%) being the most common grade 3 adverse events. There was no clear difference between systemic blood concentrations of oxaliplatin when given systemic or as HAT. Conclusion: HAT oxaliplatin in combination with capecitabine is safe and efficient in patients with MBC. The results are promising with high response rates and a long median progression free and overall survival.

  • GABPA inhibits invasion/metastasis in papillary thyroid carcinoma by regulating DICER1 expression
  • 2019
  • Ingår i: Oncogene. - : Nature Publishing Group. - 0950-9232 .- 1476-5594. ; 38:7, s. 965-979
  • Tidskriftsartikel (refereegranskat)abstract
    • The ETS family transcription factor GABPA is suggested as an oncogenic element, which is further supported by the recent reporting of it as the sole ETS member to activate the mutant TERT promoter in thyroid carcinomas (TC). However, it remains unclear how GABPA contributes to TC pathogenesis. The present study is designed to address this issue. TERT expression was significantly diminished in TERT promoter-mutated TC cells upon GABPA inhibition. Surprisingly, GABPA depletion led to robustly increased cellular invasion independently of TERT promoter mutations and TERT expression. DICER1, a component of the microRNA machinery, was identified as a downstream effector of GABPA. GABPA facilitated Dicer1 transcription while its depletion reduced Dicer1 expression. The mutation of the GABPA binding site in the DICER1 promoter led to diminished basal levels of DICER1 promoter activity and abolishment of GABPA-stimulated promoter activity as well. The forced DICER1 expression abrogated the invasiveness of GABPA-depleted TC cells. Consistently, the analyses of 93 patients with papillary thyroid carcinoma (PTC) revealed a positive correlation between GABPA and DICER1 expression. GABPA expression was negatively associated with TERT expression and promoter mutations, in contrast to published observations in cancer cell lines. Lower GABPA expression was associated with distant metastasis and shorter overall/disease-free survival in PTC patients. Similar results were obtained for PTC cases in the TCGA dataset. In addition, a positive correlation between GABPA and DICER1 expression was seen in multiple types of malignancies. Taken together, despite its stimulatory effect on the mutant TERT promoter and telomerase activation, GABPA may itself act as a tumor suppressor rather than an oncogenic factor to inhibit invasion/metastasis in TCs and be a useful predictor for patient outcomes.

  • The production and turnover of extramatrical mycelium of ectomycorrhizal fungi in forest soils : role in carbon cycling
  • 2013
  • Ingår i: Plant and Soil. - : Springer. - 0032-079X .- 1573-5036. ; 366:1-2, s. 1-27

    • There is growing evidence of the importance of extramatrical mycelium (EMM) of mycorrhizal fungi in carbon (C) cycling in ecosystems. However, our understanding has until recently been mainly based on laboratory experiments, and knowledge of such basic parameters as variations in mycelial production, standing biomass and turnover as well as the regulatory mechanisms behind such variations in forest soils is limited. Presently, the production of EMM by ectomycorrhizal (EM) fungi has been estimated at similar to 140 different forest sites to be up to several hundreds of kg per ha per year, but the published data are biased towards Picea abies in Scandinavia. Little is known about the standing biomass and turnover of EMM in other systems, and its influence on the C stored or lost from soils. Here, focussing on ectomycorrhizas, we discuss the factors that regulate the production and turnover of EMM and its role in soil C dynamics, identifying important gaps in this knowledge. C availability seems to be the key factor determining EMM production and possibly its standing biomass in forests but direct effects of mineral nutrient availability on the EMM can be important. There is great uncertainty about the rate of turnover of EMM. There is increasing evidence that residues of EM fungi play a major role in the formation of stable N and C in SOM, which highlights the need to include mycorrhizal effects in models of global soil C stores.

  • Midlife insulin resistance, APOE genotype, and late-life brain amyloid accumulation
  • 2018
  • Ingår i: Neurology. - : Lippincott Williams & Wilkins. - 0028-3878 .- 1526-632X. ; 90:13, s. e1150-e1157

    • Objective To examine whether midlife insulin resistance is an independent risk factor for brain amyloid accumulation in vivo after 15 years, and whether this risk is modulated by APOE epsilon 4 genotype. Methods This observational study examined 60 elderly volunteers without dementia (mean age at baseline 55.4 and at follow-up 70.9 years, 55.5% women) from the Finnish population-based, nationwide Health2000 study with [C-11]Pittsburgh compound B-PET imaging in 2014-2016. The participants were recruited according to their homeostatic model assessment of insulin resistance (HOMA-IR) values in the year 2000, and their APOE epsilon 4 genotype. The exposure group (IR+, n = 30) consisted of individuals with HOMA-IR > 2.17 at baseline (highest tertile of the Health2000 study population), and the control group (IR-, n = 30) consisted of individuals with HOMA-IR < 1.25 at baseline (lowest tertile). The groups were enriched for APOE epsilon 4 carriers, resulting in 50% (n = 15) APOE epsilon 4 carriers in both groups. Analyses were performed with multivariate logistic and linear regression. Results An amyloid-positive PET scan was found in 33.3% of the IR-group and 60.0% of the IR+ group (odds ratio 3.0, 95% confidence interval 1.1-8.9, p = 0.04). The increased risk was seen in carriers and noncarriers of APOE epsilon 4 genotype. Higher midlife, but not late-life continuous HOMA-IR was associated with a greater brain amyloid burden at follow-up after multivariate adjustments for other cognitive and metabolic risk factors (ss = 0.11, 95% confidence interval 0.002-0.22, p = 0.04). Conclusions These results indicate that midlife insulin resistance is an independent risk factor for brain amyloid accumulation in elderly individuals without dementia.

  • Development and preclinical characterisation of 99mTc-labelled Affibody molecules with reduced renal uptake
  • 2008
  • Ingår i: European Journal of Nuclear Medicine and Molecular Imaging. - 1619-7070 .- 1619-7089. ; 35:12, s. 2245-2255
  • Tidskriftsartikel (refereegranskat)abstract
    • Purpose  Affibody molecules are low molecular weight proteins (7 kDa), which can be selected to bind to tumour-associated target proteins with subnanomolar affinity. Because of rapid tumour localisation and clearance from nonspecific compartments, Affibody molecules are promising tracers for molecular imaging. Earlier, 99mTc-labelled Affibody molecules demonstrated specific targeting of tumour xenografts. However, the biodistribution was suboptimal either because of hepatobiliary excretion or high renal uptake of the radioactivity. The goal of this study was to optimise the biodistribution of Affibody molecules by chelator engineering. Materials and methods  Anti-HER2 ZHER2:342 Affibody molecules, carrying the mercaptoacetyl-glutamyl-seryl-glutamyl (maESE), mercaptoacetyl-glutamyl-glutamyl-seryl (maEES) and mercaptoacetyl-seryl-glutamyl-glutamyl (maSEE) chelators, were prepared by peptide synthesis and labelled with 99mTc. The tumour-targeting capacity of these conjugates was compared with each other and with the best previously available conjugate, 99mTc-maEEE-ZHER2:342, in nude mice bearing SKOV-3 xenografts. The tumour-targeting capacity of the most promising conjugate, 99mTc-maESE-ZHER2:342, was compared with radioiodinated ZHER2:342. Results  All novel conjugates demonstrated successful tumour targeting and a low degree of hepatobiliary excretion. The renal uptakes of serine-containing conjugates, 33 ± 5, 68 ± 21 and 71 ± 10%IA/g, for99mTc-maESE-ZHER2:342, 99mTc-maEES-ZHER2:342 and 99mTc-maSEE-ZHER2:342, respectively, were significantly reduced in comparison with 99mTc-maEEE-ZHER2:342 (102 ± 13%IA/g). For 99mTc-maESE-ZHER2:342, a tumour uptake of 9.6 ± 1.8%IA/g and a tumour-to-blood ratio of 58 ± 6 were reached at 4 h p.i. Conclusions  A combination of serine and glutamic acid residues in the chelator sequence confers increased renal excretion and relatively low renal uptake of 99mTc-labelled Affibody molecules. In combination with preserved targeting capacity, this improved imaging of targets in abdominal area.

  • A novel human in vitro papillomavirus type 16 positive tonsil cancer cell line with high sensitivity to radiation and cisplatin
  • 2019
  • Ingår i: BMC Cancer. - : BioMed Central (BMC). - 1471-2407. ; 19:1
  • Tidskriftsartikel (refereegranskat)abstract
    • Background: Human papillomavirus (HPV) is an established risk factor for oropharyngeal squamous cell carcinoma (OSCC). The aim was to establish cell lines from HPV-positive tonsil carcinomas to be used for treatment development. Methods: Fresh samples from 23 HPV-positive tonsil carcinomas were cultivated in vitro. The established cell line was analyzed for viral characteristics, cell karyotype, TP53 status, and growth capabilities in nude mice. In vitro studies of sensitivities to radiation, cisplatin and cetuximab were performed. Results: After 19 months (eight passages), one cell line, LU-HNSCC-26, was established in vitro and also grew as xenografts. The tumor was from a 48 year old non-smoking man with non-keratinizing, p16 positive tonsil OSCC, stage T2N0M0 with HPV16. It contained 19.5 (CV% 3.7) HPV16 copies/cell (passage 8). The complete HPV16 genome sequence was obtained. Episomal HPV16 was present with an E2/E7 ratio of 1.1 (CV% 2.6). In addition, HPV16 mRNA specific for the intact E2 gene was detected. The viral expression manifested 1.0 (CV% 0.1) E7 mRNA copies per HPV16 genome. The karyotype was determined and the cell line demonstrated wild type TP53. The ID50 for radiation was 0.90 Gy and the IC50 for cisplatin was 0.99 μmol/L. The cell line was inhibited to a maximum of 18% by cetuximab. Conclusions: We established an in vitro tonsil carcinoma cell line containing episomal HPV16. This is an important step towards efficient treatment development.
