  • Calpain Inhibition Promotes the Rescue of F508del-CFTR in PBMC from Cystic Fibrosis Patients. Averna, Monica; Pedrazzi, Marco; Minicucci, Laura; De Tullio, Roberta; Cresta, Federico; Salamino, Franca; Pontremoli, Sandro; Melloni, Edon // PLoS ONE;Jun2013, Vol. 8 Issue 6, p1 

    A basal calpain activity promotes the limited proteolysis of wild type (WT) cystic fibrosis conductance regulator (CFTR), inducing the internalization of the split channel. This process contributes to the regulation in the level of the active CFTR at the plasma membranes. In peripheral blood...

    Growth arrest specific 2 (GAS2) modulates cell cycle, apoptosis, and Calpain activity. GAS2-Calpain2 axis is required for the growth of BCR-ABL+ hematopoietic cells and chronic myeloid leukemia cells. However, the expression of GAS2 in acute leukemia patients remains unclear and what role...

  • Inhibition of calpain increases LIS1 expression and partially rescues in vivo phenotypes in a mouse model of lissencephaly. Yamada, Masami; Yoshida, Yuko; Mori, Daisuke; Takitoh, Takako; Kengaku, Mineko; Umeshima, Hiroki; Takao, Keizo; Miyakawa, Tsuyoshi; Sato, Makoto; Sorimachi, Hiroyuki; Wynshaw-Boris, Anthony; Hirotsune, Shinji // Nature Medicine;Oct2009, Vol. 15 Issue 10, p1202 

    Lissencephaly is a devastating neurological disorder caused by defective neuronal migration. LIS1 (official symbol PAFAH1B1, for platelet-activating factor acetylhydrolase, isoform 1b, subunit 1) was identified as the gene mutated in individuals with lissencephaly, and it was found to regulate...

    We have previously reported the activation of procalpain μ (precursor for low-calcium-requiring calpain) in apoptotic cells using a cleavage-site-directed antibody specific to active calpain [Kikuchi, H. and Imajoh-Ohmi, S. (1995) Cell Death Differ. 2, 195-199]. In this study, calpastatin,...

  • Calpain regulates sensitivity to trastuzumab and survival in HER2-positive breast cancer. Kulkarni, S.; Reddy, K. B.; Esteva, F. J.; Moore, H. C. F.; Budd, G. T.; Tubbs, R. R. // Oncogene;3/4/2010, Vol. 29 Issue 9, p1339 

    Resistance to anti-HER2 (human epithelial growth factor receptor 2) trastuzumab therapy occurs commonly in HER2-positive breast cancer and involves overactivation of HER2 and/or AKT1. Using the model of trastuzumab-sensitive or trastuzumab-resistant HER2-positive cells with wild-type PTEN,...

    Calpains are calcium regulated cysteine proteases that have been described in a wide range of cellular processes, including apoptosis, migration and cell cycle regulation. In addition, calpains have been implicated in differentiation, but their impact on neural differentiation requires further...

    Apoptosis mediated by caspase activation is important in the neutrophil homeostasis and resolution of tissue inflammation. Paradoxically, our previous study demonstrated that broad-spectrum caspase inhibition augmented tumor necrosis factor (TNF)- $$\alpha$$ -induced cell death in the human...

    Calpain is a Ca2+-activated proteolytic enzyme involved in neurodegeneration in a variety of injuries and diseases of the central nervous system (CNS). Many calpain homologs have been discovered. Depending on the tissue distribution, calpains are broadly classified as ubiquitous and...
