Tau directs intracellular trafficking by regulating the forces exerted by kinesin and dynein teams

TRAFFIC 2018 FEB; 19(2):111-121
Organelles, proteins, and mRNA are transported bidirectionally along microtubules by plus-end directed kinesin and minus-end directed dynein motors. Microtubules are decorated by microtubule-associated proteins (MAPs) that organize the cytoskeleton, regulate microtubule dynamics and modulate the interaction between motor proteins and microtubules to direct intracellular transport. Tau is a neuronal MAP that stabilizes axonal microtubules and crosslinks them into bundles. Dysregulation of tau leads to a range of neurodegenerative diseases known as tauopathies including Alzheimer's disease (AD). Tau reduces the processivity of kinesin and dynein by acting as an obstacle on the microtubule. Single-molecule assays indicate that kinesin-1 is more strongly inhibited than kinesin-2 or dynein, suggesting tau might act to spatially modulate the activity of specific motors. To investigate the role of tau in regulating bidirectional transport, we isolated phagosomes driven by kinesin-1, kinesin-2, and dynein and reconstituted their motility along microtubules. We find that tau biases bidirectional motility towards the microtubule minus-end in a dose-dependent manner. Optical trapping measurements show that tau increases the magnitude and frequency of forces exerted by dynein through inhibiting opposing kinesin motors. Mathematical modeling indicates that tau controls the directional bias of intracellular cargoes through differentially tuning the processivity of kinesin-1, kinesin-2, and dynein. Taken together, these results demonstrate that tau modulates motility in a motor-specific manner to direct intracellular transport, and suggests that dysregulation of tau might contribute to neurodegeneration by disrupting the balance of plus- and minus-end directed transport.

Visualizing nuclear-localized RNA using transient expression system in plants

GENES TO CELLS 2018 FEB; 23(2):105-111
By modifying the existing cytosolic RNA visualization tool pioneered by Schonberger, Hammes, and Dresselhaus (2012), we developed a method to visualize nuclear-localized RNA. Our method uses (i) an RNA component that consists of an RNA of interest that is fused to a bacteriophage-derived MS2 sequence; and (ii) GFP fused to MS2 coat protein (MSCP), which binds specifically to MS2 as is also the case in the method for cytosolic RNA visualization. The nuclear localization sequence (NLS) at the C-terminal of MSCP-GFP tethers the probe to the nucleus. To reduce background signals in the nucleus, we replaced the NLS with a nuclear export sequence (NES) that anchors the MSCP-GFP probe in the cytosol. Our nuclear RNA visualization method differs from previous methods in two aspects: (i) We used an NES to reduce nuclear background signal so that the MSCP-GFP probe localizes in the cytosol by default; (ii) We added mCherry as a visual marker in the RNA component to increase its efficient usage in a transient system.

Hematopoietic stem cell gene therapy for IFN gamma R1 deficiency protects mice from mycobacterial infections

BLOOD 2018 FEB 1; 131(5):533-545
Mendelian susceptibility to mycobacterial disease is a rare primary immunodeficiency characterized by severe infections caused by weakly virulent mycobacteria. Biallelic null mutations in genes encoding interferon gamma receptor 1 or 2 (IFNGR1 or IFNGR2) result in a life-threatening disease phenotype in early childhood. Recombinant interferon gamma (IFN-gamma) therapy is inefficient, and hematopoietic stem cell transplantation has a poor prognosis. Thus, we developed a hematopoietic stem cell (HSC) gene therapy approach using lentiviral vectors that express Ifn gamma r1 either constitutively or myeloid specifically. Transduction of mouse Ifn gamma r1(-/-) HSCs led to stable IFN gamma R1 expression on macrophages, which rescued their cellular responses to IFN-gamma. As a consequence, genetically corrected HSC-derived macrophages were able to suppress T-cell activation and showed restored antimycobacterial activity against Mycobacterium avium and Mycobacterium bovis Bacille Calmette-Guerin (BCG) in vitro. Transplantation of genetically corrected HSCs into Ifn gamma r1(-/-) mice before BCG infection prevented manifestations of severe BCG disease and maintained lung and spleen organ integrity, which was accompanied by a reduced mycobacterial burden in lung and spleen and a prolonged overall survival in animals that received a transplant. In summary, we demonstrate an HSC-based gene therapy approach for IFN gamma R1 deficiency, which protects mice from severe mycobacterial infections, thereby laying the foundation for a new therapeutic intervention in corresponding human patients.

Systemic Antitumor Immunity by PD-1/PD-L1 Inhibition Is Potentiated by Vascular-Targeted Photodynamic Therapy of Primary Tumors

CLINICAL CANCER RESEARCH 2018 FEB 1; 24(3):592-599
Purpose: PD-1/PD-L1 pathway inhibition is effective against advanced renal cell carcinoma, although results are variable and may depend on host factors, including the tumor microenvironment. Vascular-targeted photodynamic (VTP) therapy with the photosensitizer WST11 induces a defined local immune response, and we sought to determine whether this could potentiate the local and systemic antitumor response to PD-1 pathway inhibition. Experimental Design: Using an orthotopic Renca murine model of renal cell carcinoma that develops lung metastases, we treated primary renal tumors with either VTP alone, PD-1/PD-L1 antagonistic antibodies alone, or a combination of VTP and antibodies and then examined treatment responses, including immune infiltration in primary and metastatic sites. Modulation of PD-L1 expression by VTP in human xenograft tumors was also assessed. Results: Treatment of renal tumors with VTP in combination with systemic PD-1/PD-L1 pathway inhibition, but neither treatment alone, resulted in regression of primary tumors, prevented growth of lung metastases, and prolonged survival in a preclinical mouse model. Analysis of tumor-infiltrating lymphocytes revealed that treatment effect was associated with increased CD8thorn: regulatory T cell (Treg) and CD4(+)FoxP3-: Treg ratios in primary renal tumors and increased T-cell infiltration in sites of lung metastasis. Furthermore, PD-L1 expression is induced following VTP treatment of human renal cell carcinoma xenografts. Conclusions: Our results demonstrate a role for local immune modulation with VTP in combination with PD-1/PD-L1 pathway inhibition for generation of potent local and systemic antitumor responses. This combined modality strategy may be an effective therapy in cancers resistant to PD-1/PD-L1 pathway inhibition alone. (C) 2017 AACR.

Antrodia cinnamomea reduces obesity and modulates the gut microbiota in high-fat diet-fed mice

INTERNATIONAL JOURNAL OF OBESITY 2018 FEB; 42(2):231-243
BACKGROUND: Obesity is associated with gut microbiota dysbiosis, disrupted intestinal barrier and chronic inflammation. Given the high and increasing prevalence of obesity worldwide, anti-obesity treatments that are safe, effective and widely available would be beneficial. We examined whether the medicinal mushroom Antrodia cinnamomea may reduce obesity in mice fed with a high-fat diet (HFD). METHODS: Male C57BL/6J mice were fed a HFD for 8 weeks to induce obesity and chronic inflammation. The mice were treated with a water extract of A. cinnamomea (WEAC), and body weight, fat accumulation, inflammation markers, insulin sensitivity and the gut microbiota were monitored. RESULTS: After 8 weeks, the mean body weight of HFD-fed mice was 39.8 +/- 1.2 g compared with 35.8 +/- 1.3 g for the HFD+1% WEAC group, corresponding to a reduction of 4 g or 10% of body weight (P < 0.0001). WEAC supplementation reduced fat accumulation and serum triglycerides in a statistically significant manner in HFD-fed mice. WEAC also reversed the effects of HFD on inflammation markers (interleukin-1 beta, interleukin-6, tumor necrosis factor-a), insulin resistance and adipokine production (leptin and adiponectin). Notably, WEAC increased the expression of intestinal tight junctions (zonula occludens-1 and occludin) and antimicrobial proteins (Reg3g and lysozyme C) in the small intestine, leading to reduced blood endotoxemia. Finally, WEAC modulated the composition of the gut microbiota, reducing the Firmicutes/Bacteroidetes ratio and increasing the level of Akkermansia muciniphila and other bacterial species associated with anti-inflammatory properties. CONCLUSIONS: Supplementation with A. cinnamomea produces anti-obesogenic, anti-inflammatory and antidiabetic effects in HFD-fed mice by maintaining intestinal integrity and modulating the gut microbiota.
Previous studies suggest that group II metabotropic glutamate receptors (mGluR2/3) are involved in regulating ethanol-seeking and consumption. The mGluR2/3 agonist LY379268 (LY37) and selective mGluR2 positive allosteric modulator biphenyl-indanone A (BINA) were used to investigate the relative contribution of mGlu2 and mGlu3 receptors on ethanol- and sucrose-seeking and consumption. A microinjection study was then performed to examine the role of nucleus accumbens (NAc) core mGluR2/ 3 on ethanol-seeking. For the systemic experiments, separate groups of male Wistar rats [LY37 (0-2.0 mg/kg); BINA (0-20 mg/kg)] were trained to complete a response requirement (RR) resulting in access to 10% ethanol or 2% sucrose (in separate groups) for a 20-min drinking period. Animals then underwent consummatory testing (weekly drug injections with RR1) followed by appetitive testing (weekly drug injections followed by extinction session). A separate group of male Wistar rats was surgically implanted with bilateral guide cannulae directed toward the NAc core and had weekly microinjections followed by an extinction session. Systemic administration of the mGluR2/3 agonist LY37 significantly reduced ethanol- and sucrose-seeking. The same treatment also reduced sucrose consumption and body weight (24-h post injection). Systemic administration of the selective mGluR2 PAM BINA, however, had no effect on either seeking or consumption of ethanol or sucrose. Intra-accumbens core LY37 significantly reduced ethanol-seeking. These findings suggest that systemic mGluR2/3 agonism, but not allosteric modulation of mGluR2, reduces reinforcer-seeking. In particular, NAc core group II mGluR may be involved in regulating ethanol-seeking. (C) 2017 Elsevier Inc. All rights reserved.

Patient HLA class I genotype influences cancer response to checkpoint blockade immunotherapy

SCIENCE 2018 FEB 2; 359(6375):582-587
CD8(+) T cell-dependent killing of cancer cells requires efficient presentation of tumor antigens by human leukocyte antigen class I (HLA-I) molecules. However, the extent to which patient-specific HLA-I genotype influences response to anti-programmed cell death protein 1 or anti-cytotoxic T lymphocyte-associated protein 4 is currently unknown. We determined the HLA-I genotype of 1535 advanced cancer patients treated with immune checkpoint blockade (ICB). Maximal heterozygosity at HLA-I loci ("A," "B," and "C") improved overall survival after ICB compared with patients who were homozygous for at least one HLA locus. In two independent melanoma cohorts, patients with the HLA-B44 supertype had extended survival, whereas the HLA-B62 supertype (including HLA-B*15:01) or somatic loss of heterozygosity at HLA-I was associated with poor outcome. Molecular dynamics simulations of HLA-B*15:01 revealed different elements that may impair CD8(+) T cell recognition of neoantigens. Our results have important implications for predicting response to ICB and for the design of neoantigen-based therapeutic vaccines.

Search for heavy resonances decaying to a top quark and a bottom quark in the lepton plus jets final state in proton-proton collisions at 13 TeV

PHYSICS LETTERS B 2018 FEB 10; 777(?):39-63
A search is presented for narrow heavy resonances decaying to a top quark and a bottom quark using data collected by the CMS experiment at root s= 13 TeV in 2016. The data set analyzed corresponds to an integrated luminosity of 35.9fb(-1). Final states that include a single lepton (e, mu), multiple jets, and missing transverse momentum are analyzed. No evidence is found for the production of a W' boson, and the production of right-handed W' bosons is excluded at 95% confidence level for masses up to 3.6 TeV depending on the scenario considered. Exclusion limits for W' bosons are also presented as a function of their coupling strength to left- and right-handed fermions. These limits on a W' boson decaying via a top and a bottom quark are the most stringent published to date. (c) 2017 The Author. Published by Elsevier B.V.
