Synthetic Lethality of Combined Bcl-2 Inhibition and p53 Activation in AML: Mechanisms and Superior Antileukemic Efficacy.

Rongqing Pan, Vivian Ruvolo, Hong Mu, Joel D Leverson, Gwen Nichols, John C Reed, Marina Konopleva, Michael Andreeff,

Evasion of apoptosis is a hallmark of cancer. Bcl-2 and p53 represent two important nodes in apoptosis signaling pathways. We find that concomitant p53 activation and Bcl-2 inhibition overcome apoptosis resistance and markedly prolong survival in three mouse models of resistant acute myeloid leukemia (AML). Mechanistically, p53 activation negatively regulates ... Read more >>

Ubc13 haploinsufficiency protects against age-related insulin resistance and high-fat diet-induced obesity.

Erina Joo, Toru Fukushima, Norio Harada, John C Reed, Shu-Ichi Matsuzawa, Nobuya Inagaki,

Obesity is associated with low-grade inflammation that leads to insulin resistance and type 2 diabetes via Toll-like Receptor (TLR) and TNF-family cytokine receptor (TNFR) signaling pathways. Ubc13 is an ubiquitin-conjugating enzyme responsible for non-canonical K63-linked polyubiquitination of TNF receptor-associated factor (TRAF)-family adapter proteins involved in TLR and TNFR pathways. However, ... Read more >>

Andrea D'Osualdo, Veronica G Anania, Kebing Yu, Jennie R Lill, Randal J Kaufman, Shu-ichi Matsuzawa, John C Reed,

Perturbation of endoplasmic reticulum (ER) homeostasis triggers the ER stress response (also known as Unfolded Protein Response), a hallmark of many pathological disorders.

Inhibition of Mcl-1 with the pan-Bcl-2 family inhibitor (-)BI97D6 overcomes ABT-737 resistance in acute myeloid leukemia.

Rongqing Pan, Vivian R Ruvolo, Jun Wei, Marina Konopleva, John C Reed, Maurizio Pellecchia, Michael Andreeff, Peter P Ruvolo,

Overexpression of antiapoptotic Bcl-2 proteins such as Bcl-2, Bcl-xL, and Mcl-1 is widely associated with tumor initiation, progression, and chemoresistance. Furthermore, it has been demonstrated that Mcl-1 upregulation renders several types of cancers resistant to the Bcl-2/Bcl-xL inhibitors ABT-737 and ABT-263. The emerging importance of Mcl-1 in pathogenesis and drug ... Read more >>
