Bartonella henselae (Bhe) can invade human endothelial cells (ECs) by two distinguishable entry routes: either individually by endocytosis or as large bacterial aggregates by invasome-mediated internalization. Only the latter process is dependent on a functional VirB/VirD4 type IV secretion system (T4SS) and the thereby translocated Bep effector proteins. Here, we ...

Exposure of mammalian cells to oxidative stress alters lysosomal enzymes. Through cytochemical analysis of lysosomes with LysoTracker, we demonstrated that the number and fluorescent intensity of lysosome-like organelles in HeLa cells increased with exposure to hydrogen peroxide (H(2)O(2)), 6-hydroxydopamine (6-OHDA), and UVB irradiation. The lysosomes isolated from HeLa cells exposed ...

ENOX2 (tNOX), a tumor-associated cell surface ubiquinol (NADH) oxidase, functions as an alternative terminal oxidase for plasma membrane electron transport. Ubiquitous in all cancer cell lines studied thus far, ENOX2 expression correlates with the abnormal growth and division associated with the malignant phenotype. ENOX2 has been proposed as the cellular ...

Rabbit anti-HPV16 L2 serum (anti-P56/75) neutralizes multiple oncogenic human papillomaviruses (HPVs). We inoculated HeLa cells with HPV16 pseudovirus (16PV) and with anti-P56/75-bound 16PV (16PV-Ab). Both 16PV and 16PV-Ab attached equally well to the cell surface. However, the cell-attached L1 protein of 16PV became trypsin-resistant after incubation at 37°C, whereas approximately ...

Cdh1 is an activator of the anaphase-promoting complex/cyclosome and contributes to mitotic exit and G(1) maintenance by targeting cell cycle proteins for degradation. However, Cdh1 is expressed and active in postmitotic or quiescent cells, suggesting that it has functions other than cell cycle control. Here, we found that homozygous Cdh1 ...

We have recently demonstrated that the alkaloid colchicine (COL) inhibits glucocorticoid receptor (GR) transcriptional activity. In addition, we described proteasome-mediated degradation of GR in COL-treated HeLa cells. While these effects were previously attributed to cell cycle arrest in G2/M phase, this explanation is not applicable for nonproliferating cells such as ...

Endogenous estrogens have dramatic and differential effects on classical endocrine organ and proliferation. Xenoestrogens are environmental estrogens that have endocrine impact, acting as both estrogen agonists and antagonists, but whose effects are not well characterized. In this investigation we sought to delineate effects of xenoestrogens. Using human cervical cancer cells ...

Mycoplasmas are minimal bacteria whose genomes barely exceed the smallest amount of information required to sustain autonomous life. Despite this apparent simplicity, several mycoplasmas are successful pathogens of humans and animals, in which they establish intimate interactions with epithelial cells at mucosal surfaces. To identify biological functions mediating mycoplasma interactions ...

The combined application of two photosensitisers (PSs), zinc(II) phthalocyanine (ZnPc) and the cationic porphyrin meso-tetrakis(4-N-methylpyridyl)porphine (T4MPyP), on HeLa cells produced an enhanced lethal effect relative to treatments with single PSs. Thus, the proper combination of PSs may constitute a new strategy to improve the efficacy of clinical photodynamic therapy.

Ephrin A1 (EFNA1) is a member of the A-type ephrin family of cell surface proteins that function as ligands for the A-type Eph receptor tyrosine kinase family. In malignancy, the precise role of EFNA1 and its preferred receptor, EPHA2, is controversial. Several studies have found that EFNA1 may suppress EPHA2-mediated ...

HeLa cells are widely used as a model system to study cell division. The last step of cell division, abscission, occurs at an about 1 μm wide intercellular bridge that connects the post-mitotic sister cells. Abscission often occurs long after ingression of the cleavage furrow, and no efficient methods to ...

Hippocampal "place cells" and the precession of their extracellularly recorded spiking during traversal of a "place field" are well-established phenomena. More recent experiments describe associated entorhinal "grid cell" firing, but to date only conceptual models have been offered to explain the potential interactions among entorhinal cortex (EC) and hippocampus. To ...

Adenosine A(2A) receptors (A(2A)Rs) appear to play important roles in inflammation and in certain diseases of the nervous system. Pharmacological modulation of A(2A)Rs is particularly useful in Parkinson's disease and has been tested in schizophrenia. However, little is known about the regulation of A(2A)R gene (ADORA2A). A bioinformatic analysis revealed ...

Melanoma cells characteristically produce increased levels of reactive oxygen species (ROS) because of the metal-binding properties of melanin and loss of structural integrity of the melanosome. Agents that deplete gluthathione or inhibit superoxide dismutase, thereby blocking ROS scavenging mechanisms, may be selectively toxic to melanoma. To determine whether the inhibition ...

Dynamin (Dyn) 1 plays a role in recycling of synaptic vesicles, and thus in nervous system function. We previously showed that sertraline, a selective serotonin reuptake inhibitor (SSRI), is a mixed-type inhibitor of Dyn 1 with respect to both GTP and L-alpha-phosphatidyl-L-serine (PS) in vitro, and we suggested that it ...
