Simultaneous Liver Kidney Allocation Policy and the Safety Net: An Early Examination of Utilization and Outcomes in the United States.

Peter J Altshuler, Ashesh P Shah, Adam M Frank, Jaime Glorioso, Hien Dang, Osama Shaheen, Keyur Patel, Carlo G Ramirez, Warren R Maley, Adam S Bodzin,

Rates of simultaneous liver kidney (SLK) transplantation in the United States have progressively risen. On 8/10/17, the Organ Procurement and Transplantation Network implemented a policy defining criteria for SLK, with a 'Safety Net' to prioritize kidney allocation to liver recipients with ongoing renal failure. We performed a retrospective review of ... Read more >>

Organ allocation and procurement in cardiac transplantation.

Peter J Altshuler, Mark R Helmers, Pavan Atluri,

<h4>Purpose of review</h4>There is a critical shortage of organs in cardiac transplantation. Recent advancements in both organ allocation and donor utilization have intended to address this shortage and optimally allocate allografts. This review evaluates several important aspects of recipient and donor management. For recipients, the focus is placed on the ... Read more >>

Alternative splicing of human NT5E in cirrhosis and hepatocellular carcinoma produces a negative regulator of ecto-5'-nucleotidase (CD73).

Natasha T Snider, Peter J Altshuler, Shanshan Wan, Theodore H Welling, James Cavalcoli, M Bishr Omary,

Ecto-5'-nucleotidase (CD73), encoded by NT5E, is the major enzymatic source of extracellular adenosine. CD73 controls numerous pathophysiological responses and is a potential disease target, but its regulation is poorly understood. We examined NT5E regulation by alternative splicing. Genomic database analysis of human transcripts led us to identify NT5E-2, a novel ... Read more >>

Modulation of cytoskeletal dynamics by mammalian nucleoside diphosphate kinase (NDPK) proteins.

Natasha T Snider, Peter J Altshuler, M Bishr Omary,

Nucleoside diphosphate kinase (NDPK) proteins comprise a family of ten human isoforms that participate in the regulation of multiple cellular processes via enzymatic and nonenzymatic functions. The major enzymatic function of NDPKs is the generation of nucleoside triphosphates, such as guanosine triphosphate (GTP). Mechanisms behind the nonenzymatic NDPK functions are ... Read more >>

Mutation of caspase-digestion sites in keratin 18 interferes with filament reorganization, and predisposes to hepatocyte necrosis and loss of membrane integrity.

Sujith V W Weerasinghe, Nam-On Ku, Peter J Altshuler, Raymond Kwan, M Bishr Omary,

Keratin 18 (K18 or KRT18) undergoes caspase-mediated cleavage during apoptosis, the significance of which is poorly understood. Here, we mutated the two caspase-cleavage sites (D238E and D397E) in K18 (K18-DE), followed by transgenic overexpression of the resulting mutant. We found that K18-DE mice develop extensive Fas-mediated liver damage compared to ... Read more >>

Fibrinogen-γ proteolysis and solubility dynamics during apoptotic mouse liver injury: heparin prevents and treats liver damage.

Sujith V W Weerasinghe, David S Moons, Peter J Altshuler, Yatrik M Shah, M Bishr Omary,

<h4>Unlabelled</h4>Fas ligand (FasL)-mediated hepatocyte apoptosis occurs in the context of acute liver injury that can be accompanied by intravascular coagulation (IC). We tested the hypothesis that analysis of selected protein fractions from livers undergoing apoptosis will shed light on mechanisms that are involved in liver injury that might be amenable ...
