Fluid assessment in dialysis patients by point-of-care magnetic relaxometry.

Lina A Colucci, Kristin M Corapi, Matthew Li, Xavier Vela Parada, Andrew S Allegretti, Herbert Y Lin, Dennis A Ausiello, Matthew S Rosen, Michael J Cima,

Magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) is a powerful diagnostic tool, but its use is restricted to the scanner suite. Here, we demonstrate that a bedside nuclear magnetic resonance (NMR) sensor can assess fluid status changes in individuals at a fraction of the time and cost compared to MRI. Our study recruited ...

Betaglycan (TGFBR3) Functions as an Inhibin A, but Not Inhibin B, Coreceptor in Pituitary Gonadotrope Cells in Mice.

Yining Li, Jérôme Fortin, Luisina Ongaro, Xiang Zhou, Ulrich Boehm, Alan Schneyer, Daniel J Bernard, Herbert Y Lin,

Inhibins are gonadal hormones that act on pituitary gonadotrope cells to suppress FSH synthesis and secretion. Inhibin A and B are heterodimers of the inhibin ⍺-subunit disulfide-linked to one of two inhibin β-subunits. Homodimers or heterodimers of the inhibin β-subunits form the activins, which stimulate FSH production. Activins signal through ... Read more >>

Tubular cell necrosis is a key histological feature of acute kidney injury (AKI). Necroptosis is a type of programed necrosis, which is executed by mixed lineage kinase domain-like protein (MLKL) upon its binding to the plasma membrane. Emerging evidence indicates that necroptosis plays a critical role in the development of ... Read more >>

Limiting hepatic Bmp-Smad signaling by matriptase-2 is required for erythropoietin-mediated hepcidin suppression in mice.

Antonella Nai, Aude Rubio, Alessandro Campanella, Ophélie Gourbeyre, Irene Artuso, Jessica Bordini, Aurélie Gineste, Chloé Latour, Céline Besson-Fournier, Herbert Y Lin, Hélène Coppin, Marie-Paule Roth, Clara Camaschella, Laura Silvestri, Delphine Meynard,

Hepcidin, the main regulator of iron homeostasis, is repressed when erythropoiesis is acutely stimulated by erythropoietin (EPO) to favor iron supply to maturing erythroblasts. Erythroferrone (ERFE) has been identified as the erythroid regulator that inhibits hepcidin in stress erythropoiesis. A powerful hepcidin inhibitor is the serine protease matriptase-2, encoded by ...

Distinct mechanisms of induction of hepatic growth hormone resistance by endogenous IL-6, TNF-α, and IL-1β.

Yueshui Zhao, Xiaoqiu Xiao, Stuart J Frank, Herbert Y Lin, Yin Xia,

During inflammation, the liver becomes resistant to growth hormone (GH) actions, leading to downregulation of the GH target gene IGF-I and activation of catabolism. Proinflammatory cytokines IL-6, TNF-α, and IL-1β are critically involved in the pathogenesis of hepatic GH resistance. However, the mechanisms used by endogenous IL-6, TNF-α, and IL-1β ...

The role of TMPRSS6/matriptase-2 in iron regulation and anemia.

Chia-Yu Wang, Delphine Meynard, Herbert Y Lin,

Matriptase-2, encoded by the TMPRSS6 gene, is a member of the type II transmembrane serine protease family. Matriptase-2 has structural and enzymatic similarities to matriptase-1, which has been implicated in cancer progression.

Atherosclerotic lesions grow via the accumulation of leukocytes and oxidized lipoproteins in the vessel wall. Leukocytes can attenuate or augment atherosclerosis through the release of cytokines, chemokines, and other mediators. Deciphering how leukocytes develop, oppose, and complement each other's function and shape the course of disease can illuminate our understanding ... Read more >>

Wenjing Liu, Xiaoling Li, Yueshui Zhao, Xiao-Ming Meng, Chao Wan, Baoxue Yang, Hui-Yao Lan, Herbert Y Lin, Yin Xia,

Dragon is one of the three members of the repulsive guidance molecule (RGM) family, i.e. RGMa, RGMb (Dragon), and RGMc (hemojuvelin). We previously identified the RGM members as bone morphogenetic protein (BMP) co-receptors that enhance BMP signaling. Our previous studies found that Dragon is highly expressed in the tubular epithelial ... Read more >>

Local proliferation dominates lesional macrophage accumulation in atherosclerosis.

Clinton S Robbins, Ingo Hilgendorf, Georg F Weber, Igor Theurl, Yoshiko Iwamoto, Jose-Luiz Figueiredo, Rostic Gorbatov, Galina K Sukhova, Louisa M S Gerhardt, David Smyth, Caleb C J Zavitz, Eric A Shikatani, Michael Parsons, Nico van Rooijen, Herbert Y Lin, Mansoor Husain, Peter Libby, Matthias Nahrendorf, Ralph Weissleder, Filip K Swirski,

During the inflammatory response that drives atherogenesis, macrophages accumulate progressively in the expanding arterial wall. The observation that circulating monocytes give rise to lesional macrophages has reinforced the concept that monocyte infiltration dictates macrophage buildup. Recent work has indicated, however, that macrophage accumulation does not depend on monocyte recruitment in ... Read more >>

Hepcidin regulation by BMP signaling in macrophages is lipopolysaccharide dependent.

Xinggang Wu, Lai-Ming Yung, Wai-Hang Cheng, Paul B Yu, Jodie L Babitt, Herbert Y Lin, Yin Xia,

Hepcidin is an antimicrobial peptide, which also negatively regulates iron in circulation by controlling iron absorption from dietary sources and iron release from macrophages. Hepcidin is synthesized mainly in the liver, where hepcidin is regulated by iron loading, inflammation and hypoxia. Recently, we have demonstrated that bone morphogenetic protein (BMP)-hemojuvelin ... Read more >>
