Akt and ERK activation in human skeletal muscle : dose-dependency of responses to increasing muscle contractions / Protein kinase B and extracellular-signal related kinase activation in human skeletal muscle / Title from approval sheet: Effects of different resistance exercise protocols on Akt and ERK activation in human skeletal muscle

Mazzetti, Scott A. January 2003 (has links)
Akt activation mediates increases in glycogen synthesis in response to insulin in humans, while extracellular signal-regulated kinase (ERK) activation increases gene transcription and protein translation in response to endurance and resistance exercise. Akt activation increases only in response to intense muscle contractions and during hypertrophy in rats. No study has examined Akt and ERK activation with increasing numbers of intense muscle contractions in humans. Therefore, the primary objectives of this investigation were to determine if Akt activation increases in response to resistance exercise in humans, and to compare the changes in Akt and ERK activation in response to increasing numbers of muscle contractions.Akt and ERK activation were compared in muscle biopsy samples from 7 men before (Pre) and after (Post) knee extension and control protocols using enzyme linkedimmunosorbent assays. Baseline information was obtained including body composition and maximal strength (1-RM). Subjects were familiarized with knee extensions performed at 70% of 1-RM and a specified repetition cadence (2sec up, 2sec down). Once/wk, subjects performed one protocol in random order: 1 repetition (rep), 10reps, 3 sets of l0reps (3x10), or 6min of sitting. Akt activation decreased 42%, while ERK activation increased 108% in response to 3x10 (p<0.05). Akt and ERK activation did not change with 1 and 10reps, and thus their responses were not dose-dependent with resistance exercise in humans. The findings from this study represent the first indication that Akt activation is reduced in response to resistance exercise in human skeletal muscle, possibly to help mediate reductions in glycogen synthesis. / Human Performance Laboratory

Role of c-Jun N-terminal kinase (JNK) in mediating mammary cancer cell migration and metastasis

Mitra, Shreya 16 October 2012 (has links)
The c-Jun N-terminal kinases (JNKs) are MAPK family members and are activated by stress, growth factors and cytokines. They are encoded by three separate genes (jnk 1, 2, and 3), spliced alternately creating 10 isoforms. JNK signaling promotes both cell death and cell survival in a stimuli and tissue specic manner and is also implicated in tumorigenesis. Using the Polyoma Virus Middle T Antigen (PyVMT) transgenic mouse model where jnk2 was either expressed or deleted, we found that the PyVMTjnk2-/- tumors expressed higher Epidermal Growth Factor Receptor Substrate 8 (EPS8) mRNA and protein. EPS8 regulates EGFR signaling from Ras to Rac and EGFR tracking via Rab5 and RN-Tre. EPS8 is a prime candidate for connecting the EGFR signaling to actin cytoskeleton remodeling, thus mediating cell migration, a critical step in metastasis. In migration assays, PyVMTjnk2+/+ cells migrated ve fold more than the PyVMTjnk2-/- cells. Re-expression of JNK2[alpha] in the PyVMTjnk2-/- cells rescued this phenotype. Expression of shRNA EPS8 in the PyVMTjnk2-/- cell increased migration in vitro. EPS8 localization at dorsal rues and internalization of EGF-EGFR complexes coincided with JNK2 expression. Expression of shEPS8 in the PyVMTjnk2-/- cells increased EGF internalization suggesting that in absence of JNK2, EPS8 participates in Rab5-RN-Tre complex that inhibits EGFR internalization. Finally, we report that in absence of JNK2, EPS8 protein stability is greatly increased, suggesting that JNK2 is essential for endosomal sorting and degradation of EGFR associated cargo, of which EPS8 is a critical part. In contrast, silencing JNK1 (p46) in 4T1.2 mammary tumor cells, consistently enhanced cell invasion and tumor growth. Tumors derived from orthotopic injection of the 4T1.2shJNK1 expressing cells into the mammary fat pad reached target volume signicantly earlier than non-silencing vector expressing tumors. When injected intravenously, signicantly higher lung metastasis was observed in the 4T1.2shJNK1 group. The more aggressive behavior of 4T1.2shJNK1 tumors was associated with an increase in CCR5 and pAkt as detected by microarray analysis. Taken together, our data suggest that JNK1 suppresses the expression of proteins associated with tumor growth and invasive phenotype, contributing to tumor progression. / text

Dysregulated PAK4 and chemosensitivity in ovarian cancer: an in vitro study

Chu, Chun-ho, Terence., 朱雋皞. January 2012 (has links)
Ovarian cancer is regarded as the most lethal gynecological malignancy around the world. Despite the advancing medical improvements in both surgery and chemotherapy, the mortality rate did not appear to be reduced. This could be account for the late diagnosis of ovarian cancer until advanced stage. Recently, p-21 activated kinase 4 (PAK4), as a potential significant prognostic marker of ovarian cancer, has been widely studied on its contribution in oncogenesis properties. It was suggested that PAK4 proteins were activated and confer chemoresistance in ovarian cancers. In this study, we hypothesized that the up-regulation of PAK4 in ovarian cancers maybe resulted from mutations and amplification in genomic DNA level. Investigations on PAK4 genetic alterations were carried out. Recurrent mutations were found in the kinase domain of PAK4 in three ovarian cancer cell lines and two clinical samples. Single mutation was found in the exon 3 of PAK4 coding for GTPase binding domain (GTB). Amplifications of PAK4 genomic DNA were also found in four ovarian cancer cell lines. On top of that, dysregulated PAK4 level in chemosensitivity ovarian cancer cell line, A2780s showed PAK4 contribution in protection against apoptosis. Meanwhile PAK4 transfected chemoresistance cell line A2780cp also showed similar effect to PAK4 transfected A2780s. Kinase-dead and constitutively active PAK4 did not show any significance contribution to the apoptosis property. This may suggest that PAK4 do not operate all kinase domains towards apoptotic function. Immortalized normal ovarian epithelial cell line, HOSE6-3 was also upregulated with PAK4 transfection. However it did not induce the oncogenesis property of cell survival. / published_or_final_version / Pathology / Master / Master of Medical Sciences
