  1. Episode 76: October 2021

    In this episode, we hear about the ways that junk food affects monkeys, grey hair, empathetic rats, using smart phones to fight COVID-19, and how the slave trade spread disease.

    Microglia and CD206+ border-associated mouse macrophages maintain their embryonic origin during Alzheimer’s disease

    Xiaoting Wu et al.
    Inducible fate-mapping analysis demonstrates that neither microglia, CD11c+ activated microglia nor border-associated macrophages are replenished by bone marrow-derived cells in Alzheimer’s disease.

    Monocyte-derived transcriptome signature indicates antibody-dependent cellular phagocytosis as a potential mechanism of vaccine-induced protection against HIV-1

    Shida Shangguan et al.
    Using single-cell CITE-seq to implicate monocytes as the cellular origin of a protective HIV vaccine gene signature.

    Mutational analysis to explore long-range allosteric couplings involved in a pentameric channel receptor pre-activation and activation

    Solène N Lefebvre et al.
    A pentameric channel-receptor was studied by combining allosteric mutations, electrophysiology, fluorescent reporters and normal mode analysis, to dissect the long-range allosteric couplings specifically involved in its pre-activation and activation.

    Innate immune activation by checkpoint inhibition in human patient-derived lung cancer tissues

    Teresa WM Fan et al.
    Pembrolizumab activates innate immune metabolism and function in primary human non-small cell lung cancer, whereas Pembrolizumab and beta-glucan synergize in enhancing immune metabolism and tumoridical action in brain-metastasized lung cancer.

    A proteome-wide genetic investigation identifies several SARS-CoV-2-exploited host targets of clinical relevance

    Mohd Anisul et al.
    Genetic integration of human protein abundance variation and COVID-19 susceptibility identifies proteins with potential causal roles in antiviral responses, coagulation, cytokine activation, and direct receptor interactions with SARS-CoV-2.

    Aorta smooth muscle-on-a-chip reveals impaired mitochondrial dynamics as a therapeutic target for aortic aneurysm in bicuspid aortic valve disease

    Mieradilijiang Abudupataer et al.
    An aorta smooth muscle-on-a-chip model indicated that NOTCH1 insufficiency in HAoSMCs induced phenotypic switching from a contractile to a synthetic phenotype accompanied by an impairment of mitochondrial fusion, implying its potential role as a therapeutic target for BAV-TAA.

    Ascorbic acid supports ex vivo generation of plasmacytoid dendritic cells from circulating hematopoietic stem cells

    Anders Laustsen et al.
    Probing of various culture conditions leads to fundamental advances in ex vivo production of plasmacytoid dendritic cells for use in immunotherapy.
    1. Neuroscience

    Sex-specific pubertal and metabolic regulation of Kiss1 neurons via Nhlh2

    Silvia Leon et al.
    The transcription factor Nhlh2 is a marker of arcuate Kiss1 neurons in adulthood that activates the promotor activity of Kiss1 and Tac3 genes and controls puberty onset and the response of KNDy neurons to leptin in male mice.
