Brucella induces an unfolded protein response via TcpB that supports intracellular replication in macrophages.

Brucella melitensis is a facultative intracellular bacterium that causes brucellosis, the most prevalent zoonosis worldwide. The Brucella intracellula...

Brucella suis Vaccine Strain 2 Induces Endoplasmic Reticulum Stress that Affects Intracellular Replication in Goat Trophoblast Cells In vitro.
Brucella has been reported to impair placental trophoblasts, a cellular target where Brucella efficiently replicates in association with the endoplasmic reticulum (ER), and ultimately trigger abortion in pregnant animals. However, the precise effects

Valproate Induces the Unfolded Protein Response by Increasing Ceramide Levels.
Bipolar disorder (BD), which is characterized by depression and mania, affects 1-2% of the world population. Current treatments are effective in only 40-60% of cases and cause severe side effects. Valproate (VPA) is one of the most widely used drugs

Macrophage activation induced by Brucella DNA suppresses bacterial intracellular replication via enhancing NO production.
Brucella DNA can be sensed by TLR9 on endosomal membrane and by cytosolic AIM2-inflammasome to induce proinflammatory cytokine production that contributes to partially activate innate immunity. Additionally, Brucella DNA has been identified to be abl

The Unfolded Protein Response Supports Plant Development and Defense as well as Responses to Abiotic Stress.
The unfolded protein response (UPR) is a stress response conserved in eukaryotic organisms and activated by the accumulation of misfolded proteins in the endoplasmic reticulum (ER). Adverse environmental conditions disrupt protein folding in the ER a

Trp(250) -hK2 is defective in intracellular trafficking and activates the unfolded protein response.
hK2, a member of the kallikrein protease family encoded by KLK2, is expressed exclusively in prostate and is a putative adjunct tumor marker for prostate cancer screening. The T allele of rs198977, a single nucleotide polymorphism in exon 5 of KLK2,

Estrogen receptor α inhibitor activates the unfolded protein response, blocks protein synthesis, and induces tumor regression.
Recurrent estrogen receptor α (ERα)-positive breast and ovarian cancers are often therapy resistant. Using screening and functional validation, we identified BHPI, a potent noncompetitive small molecule ERα biomodulator that selectively blocks prolif

Reduced endoplasmic reticulum stress-induced apoptosis and impaired unfolded protein response in TRPC3-deficient M1 macrophages.
Endoplasmic reticulum (ER) stress is a prominent mechanism of macrophage apoptosis in advanced atherosclerotic lesions. Recent studies from our laboratory showed that advanced atherosclerotic plaques in Apoe(-/-) mice with bone marrow deficiency of t

Endoplasmic reticulum stress and unfolded protein response in infection by intracellular parasites.
Perturbations of the physiological status of the endoplasmic reticulum (ER) trigger a specific response known as the ER stress response or unfolded protein response (UPR). In mammalian cells, the UPR is mediated by three ER transmembrane proteins (IR

Apoptosis, autophagy and unfolded protein response pathways in Arbovirus replication and pathogenesis.
Arboviruses are pathogens that widely affect the health of people in different communities around the world. Recently, a few successful approaches toward production of effective vaccines against some of these pathogens have been developed, but treatm

Porcine circovirus type 2 capsid protein induces unfolded protein response with subsequent activation of apoptosis.
Porcine circovirus type 2 (PCV2) has recently been reported to elicit the unfolded protein response (UPR) via activation of the PERK/eIF2α (RNA-activated protein kinase-like endoplasmic reticulum (ER) kinase/eukaryotic initiation factor 2α) pathway.
