A great diversity of factors contribute to the pathogenesis of autism and autism spectrum disorder (ASD). Early detection is known to correlate with improved long term outcomes. There is therefore intense scientific interest in the pathogenesis of and early prediction of autism. Recent reports suggest that epigenetic alterations may play a vital role in disease pathophysiology. We conducted an epigenome-wide analysis of newborn leucocyte (blood spot) DNA in autism as defined at the time of sample collection...

OBJECTIVE: To investigate the effect of miRNA-182 on cardiomyocyte apoptosis of heart failure (HF). MATERIALS AND METHODS: HF model in rats was established by rapid ventricular pacing. AAV-miRNA-182 (adeno-associated virus) vector was constructed to upregulate miRNA-182 level and its negative control AAV-NC was prepared. Rats undergoing rapid pacing (pacing group) and sham operation (sham group) were injected with AAV-miRNA-182 or AAV-NC, respectively. Quantitative Real Time-Polymerase Chain Reaction (qRT-PCR) was conducted to determine the miRNA-182 level in rats...

Oxidized low-density lipoprotein (ox-LDL)-induced endothelial cell (EC) apoptosis is the initial step of atherogenesis and associated with Ca2+ overload. Mitochondria-associated endoplasmic reticulum (ER) membrane (MAM), regulated by tethering proteins such as phosphofurin acidic cluster sorting protein 2 (PACS2), is essential for mitochondrial Ca2+ overload by mediating ER-mitochondria Ca2+ transfer. In our study, we aimed to investigate the role of PACS2 in ox-LDL-induced apoptosis in human umbilical vein endothelial cells (HUVECs) and the underlying mechanisms...

RESEARCH QUESTION: Do low doses of dietary nitrate help to attenuate the progression of diabetic reproductive disorders in streptozotocin-induced diabetic male rats? DESIGN: Fifty male Wistar rats were divided into five groups: controls receiving distilled water; controls receiving 100 mg/l nitrate in distilled water; diabetic rats receiving distilled water; diabetic rats receiving insulin 2-4 U/day of neutral protamine hagedorn insulin; and diabetic rats receiving 100 mg/l nitrate in distilled water...

Whole exome sequencing (WES) has led to the understanding of the molecular events affecting neurodevelopment in an extremely diverse clinical context, including diseases with intellectual disability (ID) associated with variable central nervous system malformations, and developmental and epileptic encephalopathies (DEEs). Recently, PACS2 mutations have been causally linked to a DEE with cerebellar dysgenesis and facial dysmorphism. All known patients presented with a recurrent de novo missense mutation, c.625G>A (p...

The loss of p300/CBP-associated protein (PCAF) expression is associated with poor clinical outcome in gastric cancer, and a potential bio-marker for invasive and aggressive tumors. However, the mechanism linking loss of PCAF to the onset of gastric cancer has not been identified. Given that PCAF and its binding partner transcriptional adaptor protein 3 (ADA3) were recently shown to regulate the intrinsic (mitochondrial) pathway to apoptosis via epigenetic regulation of phosphofurin acidic cluster sorting proteins 1 and 2 (PACS1, PACS2), we analyzed PCAF, ADA3, and PACS1/2 expression in 99 patient-matched surgical samples ranging from normal gastric mucosa, through pre-malignant chronic gastritis and intestinal metaplasia to stage I-III invasive cancers...

Developmental and epileptic encephalopathies (DEEs) represent a large clinical and genetic heterogeneous group of neurodevelopmental diseases. The identification of pathogenic genetic variants in DEEs remains crucial for deciphering this complex group and for accurately caring for affected individuals (clinical diagnosis, genetic counseling, impacting medical, precision therapy, clinical trials, etc.). Whole-exome sequencing and intensive data sharing identified a recurrent de novo PACS2 heterozygous missense variant in 14 unrelated individuals...

PACS-2 is a multifunctional sorting protein that mediates cell homeostasis. We recently identified PACS-2 in a functional genome-wide siRNA screen for novel regulators of the metalloproteinase ADAM17, the main sheddase for ligands of the ErbB receptor family. Of note, we showed that Pacs2 -/- mice have significantly reduced EGFR activity and proliferative index in the intestinal epithelium. As EGFR signaling is highly mitogenic for intestinal epithelial stem cells, and plays essential roles in intestinal epithelial regeneration and tumor development, we have now examined the role of PACS-2 in these processes...

The metalloproteinase ADAM17 activates ErbB signalling by releasing ligands from the cell surface, a key step underlying epithelial development, growth and tumour progression. However, mechanisms acutely controlling ADAM17 cell-surface availability to modulate the extent of ErbB ligand release are poorly understood. Here, through a functional genome-wide siRNA screen, we identify the sorting protein PACS-2 as a regulator of ADAM17 trafficking and ErbB signalling. PACS-2 loss reduces ADAM17 cell-surface levels and ADAM17-dependent ErbB ligand shedding, without apparent effects on related proteases...

Background microRNAs (miRNAs) are a class of small, non-coding endogenous RNAs that post-transcriptionally regulate some protein-coding genes. miRNAs play an important role in many cardiac pathophysiological processes, including myocardial infarction, cardiac hypertrophy, and heart failure. miR-499, specifically expressed in skeletal muscle and cardiac cells, is differentially regulated and functions in heart development. However, the function of miR-499 in mature heart is poorly understood. Results We report that cardiac-abundant miR-499 could protect neonatal rat cardiomyocytes against H 2O 2-induced apoptosis...

The human lymphocyte toxins granzyme B (hGrzB) and perforin cooperatively induce apoptosis of virus-infected or transformed cells: perforin pores enable entry of the serine protease hGrzB into the cytosol, where it processes Bid to selectively activate the intrinsic apoptosis pathway. Truncated Bid (tBid) induces Bax/Bak-dependent mitochondrial outer membrane permeability and the release of cytochrome c and Smac/Diablo. To identify cellular proteins that regulate perforin/hGrzB-mediated Bid cleavage and subsequent apoptosis, we performed a gene-knockdown (KD) screen using a lentiviral pool of short hairpin RNAs embedded within a miR30 backbone (shRNAmiR)...

Chromosome 14q32.3 deletions are uncommon, with most described patients harboring a ring chromosome 14. Only 15 deletions have been described not associated with ring formation or other complex chromosomal rearrangements. Here, we describe a child with the smallest deletion of chromosome 14q32.3 reported in the literature. This child's deletion encompasses at most 0.305 Mb and six genes including NUDT14, BRF1, BTBD6, PACS2, MTA1, and TEX22. He has similar clinical findings, including mild facial dysmorphisms and intellectual disability, as other individuals with much larger deletions of the terminus of the long arm of chromosome 14...

Pseudomonas aeruginosa, the leading cause of morbidity and mortality in people with cystic fibrosis (CF), adapts for survival in the CF lung through both mutation and gene expression changes. Frequent clonal strains such as the Australian Epidemic Strain-1 (AES-1), have increased ability to establish infection in the CF lung and to superimpose and replace infrequent clonal strains. Little is known about the factors underpinning these properties. Analysis has been hampered by lack of expression array templates containing CF-strain specific genes...

COMPARATIVE STUDY

The genomic island pKLC102 first detected in Pseudomonas aeruginosa clone C strains can cross species barriers and exhibits the highest mobilization rate of a genomic island known to date. Homologous genomic islands of 81-108 kb in size were identified in the completely sequenced P. aeruginosa strains PA7, PA14, 2192, C3719 and PACS2, but not in strains PAO1 and LES. All pKLC102-like genomic islands are integrated in chromosomal tRNA(Lys) genes and share a syntenic set of more than 70 homologous ORFs, part of which are related to DNA replication or mobility genes...
