Effects of progesterone receptor modulator CDB-2914 on the expression of the extracellular matrix (ECM) components were examined in cultured human uterine leiomyoma and myometrial cells. ECM metalloproteinase inducer (EMMPRIN), matrix metalloproteinases (MMPs), tissue inhibitors of MMP (TIMPs) and collagen levels were assessed by Western blot analysis, MMP activity assay and real-time RT-PCR. RNA interference (RNAi) of EMMPRIN was performed using small interfering mRNA. In cultured leiomyoma cells, CDB-2914 treatment at concentrations greater than or equal to 10(-8) M significantly increased EMMPRIN, MMP-1 and MMP-8 protein contents and MMP-1, MMP-2, MMP-3 and MMP-9 mRNA levels, and activity of MMP-1, MMP-2, MMP-3 and MMP-9 in the medium. TIMP-1 and TIMP-2 were significantly decreased at mRNA and protein levels by CDB-2914 treatment at concentrations > or =10(-7) M in these cells. CDB-2914 treatment decreased types I and III collagen protein contents. However, CDB-2914 treatment did not affect the ECM component expression in cultured myometrial cells. RNAi of EMMPRIN abrogated CDB-2914-mediated both induction of MMPs and reduction of TIMPs and collagens in cultured leiomyoma cells. These results suggest that CDB-2914 modulates ...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.


Blastomycosis fungal infections spread through inhaling Blastomyces dermatitidis spores. Discover the latest research on blastomycosis fungal infections here.

Nuclear Pore Complex in ALS/FTD

Alterations in nucleocytoplasmic transport, controlled by the nuclear pore complex, may be involved in the pathomechanism underlying multiple neurodegenerative diseases including Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis and Frontotemporal Dementia. Here is the latest research on the nuclear pore complex in ALS and FTD.

Applications of Molecular Barcoding

The concept of molecular barcoding is that each original DNA or RNA molecule is attached to a unique sequence barcode. Sequence reads having different barcodes represent different original molecules, while sequence reads having the same barcode are results of PCR duplication from one original molecule. Discover the latest research on molecular barcoding here.
