The Biological Significance and Implications of Planar Cell Polarity for Nephrology.

Eugenia Papakrivopoulou, Daniyal J Jafree, Charlotte H Dean, David A Long,

The orientation of cells in two-dimensional and three-dimensional space underpins how the kidney develops and responds to disease. The process by which cells orientate themselves within the plane of a tissue is termed planar cell polarity. In this Review, we discuss how planar cell polarity and the proteins that underpin ...

Mechanism of lung development in the aetiology of adult congenital pulmonary airway malformations.

Bethany Taylor, Alexandra Rice, Andrew G Nicholson, Matthew Hind, Charlotte H Dean,

Congenital pulmonary airway malformations (CPAMs) are rare lung abnormalities that result in cyst formation and are associated with respiratory distress in infants and malignant potential in adults. The pathogenesis of CPAMs remains unknown but data suggest disruption of the normal proximo-distal programme of airway branching and differentiation. Here, we demonstrate ... Read more >>

Hedgehog-Activated Fat4 and PCP Pathways Mediate Mesenchymal Cell Clustering and Villus Formation in Gut Development.

Abilasha Rao-Bhatia, Min Zhu, Wen-Chi Yin, Sabrina Coquenlorge, Xiaoyun Zhang, Janghee Woo, Yu Sun, Charlotte H Dean, Aimin Liu, Chi-Chung Hui, Ramesh A Shivdasani, Helen McNeill, Sevan Hopyan, Tae-Hee Kim,

During development, intestinal epithelia undergo dramatic morphogenesis mediated by mesenchymal signaling to form villi, which are required for efficient nutrient absorption and host defense. Although both smooth-muscle-induced physical forces and mesenchymal cell clustering beneath emerging villi are implicated in epithelial folding, the underlying cellular mechanisms are unclear. Hedgehog (Hh) signaling ... Read more >>

Time-lapse Imaging of Alveologenesis in Mouse Precision-cut Lung Slices.

Khondoker M Akram, Laura L Yates, Róisín Mongey, Stephen Rothery, David C A Gaboriau, Jeremy Sanderson, Matthew Hind, Mark Griffiths, Charlotte H Dean,

Alveoli are the gas-exchange units of lung. The process of alveolar development, alveologenesis, is regulated by a complex network of signaling pathways that act on various cell types including alveolar type I and II epithelial cells, fibroblasts and the vascular endothelium. Dysregulated alveologenesis results in bronchopulmonary dysplasia in neonates and ... Read more >>

Live imaging of alveologenesis in precision-cut lung slices reveals dynamic epithelial cell behaviour.

Khondoker M Akram, Laura L Yates, Róisín Mongey, Stephen Rothery, David C A Gaboriau, Jeremy Sanderson, Matthew Hind, Mark Griffiths, Charlotte H Dean,

Damage to alveoli, the gas-exchanging region of the lungs, is a component of many chronic and acute lung diseases. In addition, insufficient generation of alveoli results in bronchopulmonary dysplasia, a disease of prematurity. Therefore visualising the process of alveolar development (alveologenesis) is critical for our understanding of lung homeostasis and ... Read more >>

Manipulation of dipeptidylpeptidase 10 in mouse and human in vivo and in vitro models indicates a protective role in asthma.

Youming Zhang, Thanushiyan Poobalasingam, Laura L Yates, Simone A Walker, Martin S Taylor, Lauren Chessum, Jackie Harrison, Loukia Tsaprouni, Ian M Adcock, Clare M Lloyd, William O Cookson, Miriam F Moffatt, Charlotte H Dean,

We previously identified dipeptidylpeptidase 10 (<i>DPP10</i>) on chromosome 2 as a human asthma susceptibility gene, through positional cloning. Initial association results were confirmed in many subsequent association studies but the functional role of DPP10 in asthma remains unclear. Using the MRC Harwell N-ethyl-N-nitrosourea (ENU) DNA archive, we identified a point ... Read more >>

Lung Alveolar Repair: Not All Cells Are Equal.

Charlotte H Dean, Clare M Lloyd,

The lungs are capable of repair but the extent to which this occurs varies widely. Recent data indicate that, following injury, different progenitor cell populations can arise, depending on the molecular environment. In turn, these result in either normal or aberrant alveolar repair. Thus, a key question in lung regenerative ... Read more >>

Lung diseases impose a huge economic and health burden worldwide. A key aspect of several adult lung diseases, such as idiopathic pulmonary fibrosis (IPF) and chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD), including emphysema, is aberrant tissue repair, which leads to an accumulation of damage and impaired respiratory function. Currently, there are ... Read more >>

Atmin mediates kidney morphogenesis by modulating Wnt signaling.

Paraskevi Goggolidou, Nazreen F Hadjirin, Aggie Bak, Eugenia Papakrivopoulou, Helen Hilton, Dominic P Norris, Charlotte H Dean,

The DNA damage protein and transcription factor Atmin (Asciz) is required for both lung tubulogenesis and ciliogenesis. Like the lungs, kidneys contain a tubular network that is critical for their function and in addition, renal ciliary dysfunction has been implicated in the pathogenesis of cystic kidney disease. Using the Atmin ... Read more >>

Planar cell polarity and the kidney.

Eugenia Papakrivopoulou, Charlotte H Dean, Andrew J Copp, David A Long,

Planar cell polarity (PCP) is the uniform orientation and alignment of a group of cells orthogonal to the apical-basal axis within a tissue.
