    Uremic toxin indoxyl sulfate induces trained immunity via the AhR-dependent arachidonic acid pathway in end-stage renal disease (ESRD)

    Hee Young Kim, Yeon Jun Kang ... Won-Woo Lee
    Indoxyl sulfate, a key uremic toxin in chronic kidney disease (CKD), induces trained immunity in monocytes via crosstalk between aryl hydrocarbon receptor (AhR)-dependent epigenetic reprogramming by enhancement of the arachidonic acid pathway and AhR-independent metabolic rewiring.

    DHODH inhibition enhances the efficacy of immune checkpoint blockade by increasing cancer cell antigen presentation

    Nicholas J Mullen, Surendra K Shukla ... Pankaj K Singh
    Cancer cell antigen presentation, a requirement for immune-mediated tumor rejection, is induced by dihydroorotate dehydrogenase-inhibitor-mediated cancer cell pyrimidine nucleotide depletion via P-TEFb-dependent transcriptional upregulation of MHC-I and related genes.

    ER-to-lysosome Ca2+ refilling followed by K+ efflux-coupled store-operated Ca2+ entry in inflammasome activation and metabolic inflammation

    Hyereen Kang, Seong Woo Choi ... Myung-Shik Lee
    The role of lysosomal Ca2+ flux associated with K+ efflux, a well-known event in inflammasome activation in metabolic inflammation and inflammasome activation, has been presented.
