    The MAP kinase kinase kinase TGFβ-activated kinase 1 (TAK1) is activated by TLRs, IL-1, TNF, and TGFβ and in turn activates IKK-NF-kB and JNK, which regulate cell survival, growth, tumorigenesis, and metabolism. TAK1 signaling also upregulates AMPK activity and autophagy. Here, we...

    Autophagy is a highly orchestrated intracellular bulk degradation process that is activated by various environmental stresses. The serine/threonine kinase ULK1, like its yeast homologue Atg1, is a key initiator of autophagy that is negatively regulated by the mTOR kinase. However, the molecular...

    Cucurbitacins, the natural triterpenoids possessing many biological activities, have been reported to suppress the mTORC1/p70S6K pathway and to induce autophagy. However, the correlation between such activities is largely unknown. In this study, we addressed this issue in human cancer cells in...

    The Bcl-2 adenovirus E1B 19 kDa-interacting protein 3 (Bnip3) is a pro-apoptotic BH3-only protein associated with the pathogenesis of many diseases, including cancer and cardiovascular disease. Studies over the past decade have provided insight into how Bnip3 induces mitochondrial dysfunction...

    Autophagy is an evolutionarily conserved process that contributes to maintain cell homeostasis. Although it is strongly regulated by many extracellular factors, induction of autophagy is mainly produced by starvation of nutrients. In mammalian cells, the regulation of autophagy by amino acids,...

    Bnip3 (Bcl-2/adenovirus E1B 19-kDa-interacting protein 3) is a mitochondrial BH3-only protein that contributes to cell death through activation of the mitochondrial pathway of apoptosis. Bnip3 is also known to induce autophagy, but the functional role of autophagy is unclear. In this study, we...

    Several cardiomyopathies, including myocardial ischemia, have been associated with an impairment of gap junction intercellular communication (GJIC) between cardiomyocytes, due to an increased internalization and/or degradation of Connexin43 (Cx43). Recent data of our group, demonstrates that...
