To study the molecular mechanism of differentiation induction by 2-methoxyestradiol (2ME2) of myeloma cell lines. Differentiation induction effect on myeloma cell lines LP-1, CZ-1 and NCI-H929 which were incubated with 2ME2 and XBP-1, Blimp-1, pax-5 phosphorothioate antisense oligodeoxynucleotide (ASODN) was evaluated by cell morphology, CD49e expression, quantitation of light chain secretion, and the level of pax-5 and XBP-1 mRNA expression. 2ME2 caused morphological, immunophenotypic and the supernatant light chain secretion changes typical of differentiation in all the three myeloma cell lines. 2ME2 up-regulated the XBP-1 mRNA expression. XBP-1 and Blimp-1 ASODNs partially inhibited the differentiation of LP-1, CZ-1, NCI-H929 cells induced by 2ME2; whereas pax-5 ASODN did the contrary. After incubated with pax-5 ASODN for 72 hours, LP-1, CZ-1, NCI-H929 cells exhibited characteristic morphologic feature of differentiation. The expression of CD49e was increased statistically (P < 0.05). Light chain secretion in the supernatant was also increased statistically (P < 0.05). After incubation with Blimp-1 ASODN, the level of XBP-1 mRNA was declined, while the level of pax-5 mRNA increased. 2ME2 could induce cell differentiation and...Continue Reading

Coronaviruses encompass a large family of viruses that cause the common cold as well as more serious diseases, such as the ongoing outbreak of coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19; formally known as 2019-nCoV). Coronaviruses can spread from animals to humans; symptoms include fever, cough, shortness of breath, and breathing difficulties; in more severe cases, infection can lead to death. This feed covers recent research on COVID-19.

Bone Marrow Neoplasms

Bone Marrow Neoplasms are cancers that occur in the bone marrow. Discover the latest research on Bone Marrow Neoplasms here.

IGA Glomerulonephritis

IgA glomerulonephritis is a chronic form of glomerulonephritis characterized by deposits of predominantly Iimmunoglobin A in the mesangial area. Discover the latest research on IgA glomerulonephritis here.

Cryogenic Electron Microscopy

Cryogenic electron microscopy (Cryo-EM) allows the determination of biological macromolecules and their assemblies at a near-atomic resolution. Here is the latest research.

STING Receptor Agonists

Stimulator of IFN genes (STING) are a group of transmembrane proteins that are involved in the induction of type I interferon that is important in the innate immune response. The stimulation of STING has been an active area of research in the treatment of cancer and infectious diseases. Here is the latest research on STING receptor agonists.

LRRK2 & Immunity During Infection

Mutations in the LRRK2 gene are a risk-factor for developing Parkinson’s disease. However, LRRK2 has been shown to function as a central regulator of vesicular trafficking, infection, immunity, and inflammation. Here is the latest research on the role of this kinase on immunity during infection.

Antiphospholipid Syndrome

Antiphospholipid syndrome or antiphospholipid antibody syndrome (APS or APLS), is an autoimmune, hypercoagulable state caused by the presence of antibodies directed against phospholipids.

Meningococcal Myelitis

Meningococcal myelitis is characterized by inflammation and myelin damage to the meninges and spinal cord. Discover the latest research on meningococcal myelitis here.

Alzheimer's Disease: MS4A

Variants within membrane-spanning 4-domains subfamily A (MS4A) gene cluster have recently been implicated in Alzheimer's disease by recent genome-wide association studies. Here is the latest research.
