macrophages show higher levels of engulfment after disruption of cis interactions between cd47 and the checkpoint receptor sirpα.the macrophage checkpoint receptor sirpα signals against phagocytosis by binding cd47 expressed on all cells - including macrophages. here, we found that inhibiting cis interactions between sirpα and cd47 on the same macrophage increased engulfment ('eating') by approximately the same level as inhibiting trans interactions. antibody blockade of cd47, as pursued in clinical trials against cancer, was applied separately to human-derived macrophages and to red blood cell (rbc) targets for phagocyto ...202031964705
inhibition of endogenous mir-23a/mir-377 in cho cells enhances difficult-to-express recombinant lysosomal sulfatase activity.difficult-to-express (dte) recombinant proteins such as multi-specific proteins, dte monoclonal antibodies, and lysosomal enzymes have seen difficulties in manufacturability using chinese hamster ovary (cho) cells or other mammalian cells as production platforms. cho cells are preferably used for recombinant protein production for their ability to secrete human-like recombinant proteins with posttranslational modification, resistance to viral infection, and familiarity with drug regulators. howe ...202031990124
cytotoxic and genotoxic assessments of 2,4-dichlorophenoxyacetic acid (2,4-d) in in vitro mammalian cells.a combined approach employing alkaline single cell gel electrophoresis (scge) and cytokinesis-blocked micronucleus (mns) cytome bioassays was adopted to assess the deleterious properties of the auxinic 2,4-dichlorophenoxyacetic acid (2,4-d) and its microparticulated low volatility product dedalo elite (30% a.i.) on chinese hamster ovary (cho-k1) cells. cytotoxicity was estimated by neutral red uptake (nru), succinic dehydrogenase activity (mtt) and apoptosis assessment. both compounds were assay ...202031987841
engineering mammalian cells to produce plant-specific n-glycosylation on proteins.protein n-glycosylation is an essential and highly conserved posttranslational modification found in all eukaryotic cells. yeast, plants and mammalian cells, however, produce n-glycans with distinct structural features. these species-specific features not only pose challenges in selecting host cells for production of recombinant therapeutics for human medical use but also provide opportunities to explore and utilize species-specific glycosylation in design of vaccines. here, we used reverse cros ...202032039452
the epilepsy of infancy with migrating focal seizures: identification of de novo mutations of the kcnt2 gene that exert inhibitory effects on the corresponding heteromeric kna1.1/kna1.2 potassium channel.the epilepsy of infancy with migrating focal seizures (eimfs; previously called malignant migrating partial seizures of infancy) are early-onset epileptic encephalopathies (eoee) that associate multifocal ictal discharges and profound psychomotor retardation. eimfs have a genetic origin and are mostly caused by de novo mutations in the kcnt1 gene, and much more rarely in the kcnt2 gene. kcnt1 and kcnt2 respectively encode the kna1.1 (slack) and kna1.2 (slick) subunits of the sodium-dependent vol ...202032038177
heterozygous variant fibrinogen γa289v (kanazawa iii) was confirmed as hypodysfibrinogenemia by plasma and recombinant fibrinogens.congenital fibrinogen disorders are classified as afibrinogenemia, hypofibrinogenemia, dysfibrinogenemia, and hypodysfibrinogenemia. however, difficulties are associated with discriminating between dysfibrinogenemia, hypofibrinogenemia, and hypodysfibrinogenemia using routine analyses. we previously reported a heterozygous variant fibrinogen (γa289v; kanazawa iii) as hypodysfibrinogenemia; however, the same variant had previously been described as hypofibrinogenemia. to clarify the production of ...202031957968

neutralizing antibody against osteopontin attenuates non-alcoholic steatohepatitis in mice.previously, we reported that an extracellular matrix protein, osteopontin (opn), is involved in various autoimmune diseases using a neutralizing polyclonal antibody against opn generated in rabbits. however, the antibody cannot be used for long-term mouse models of chronic inflammatory disease because of the induction of antibodies against anti-opn rabbit igg. in this study, we generated a new antibody, anti-mouse opn mouse igg (35b6). 35b6 inhibited the cell adhesion of mouse and human opn to c ...202032062834
codon and amino acid content are associated with mrna stability in mammalian cells.messenger rna (mrna) degradation plays a critical role in regulating transcript levels in the cell and is a major control point for modulating gene expression. in yeast and other model organisms, codon identity is a powerful determinant of transcript stability, contributing broadly to impact half-lives. general principles governing mrna stability are poorly understood in mammalian systems. importantly, however, the degradation machinery is highly conserved, thus it seems logical that mammalian t ...202032053646
