effect of dedifferentiation on time to mutation

However it is equally important to note that Foxo activation is limited in time as the deacetylated nuclear protein has decreased stability 26 As Foxo levels decrease the stage is set for dedifferentiation through the loss of gene expression networks necessary to the maintenance of β‐cell characteristics 27 The cancer stem cell might be the outcome of stem cell mutation or of the dedifferentiation of a mutant progenitor cell or even a differentiated cell (the lower row) The effect of p53 on the differentiation of ES cells is closely associated with Nanog The time taken to generate iPS will be shortened if

2012-9-14Cell-Autonomous Dedifferentiation Of FoxO1-Deficient β-Cells To examine whether β-cell dysfunction was due to loss of β-cell number or β-cell function we employed lineage tracing to mark cells in which Ins2-cre had been active In these experiments we used a sensitive approach based on automated localization of confocal immunofluorescence and compared and multiparous

effect non-coding DNA squence may increase/decrease rate of transcription an alteration in a gene that is present for the first time in one family member as a result of a mutation in a germ cell (egg or sperm) of one of the parents a mutation in mitochondrial gene can be passed from the mother to a child via her egg cells

To maintain and repair adult tissues a balance must be maintained between stem cell proliferation and generation of differentiated offspring This review explores recent mathematical and computational models that address stem cell fate decisions in adult tissues in the context of normal tissue regulation and cancer development Quantitative models suggest that upregulation of stem cell self

To address this we mathematically modeled the effect of dedifferentiation on carcinogenesis We considered a hybrid stochastic-deterministic model of mutation accumulation in both stem cells and progenitors including dedifferentiation of progenitor cells to a stem cell-like state

2018-10-11Background Aldehyde dehydrogenase 1A1 (ALDH1A1) encodes an enzyme that oxidizes aldehydes to their corresponding carboxylic acids In colorectal cancer ALDH1A1 marks cancer stem cells and plays putative roles in tumor progression and drug resistance However the potential value of ALDH1A1 as a diagnostic marker or target for therapy remains unclear

2014-3-6For high mutation rates the effect of dedifferentiation is more dramatic because the time from emergence to fixation of two-mutation cells which dedifferentiation also shortens is comparable to the time to emergence (Fig 4D)

Interestingly cellular differentiation is not unidirectional Indeed growing evidence suggests that under specific conditions mature β-cells can lose to various degrees their differentiated phenotype and cellular identity and regress to a less differentiated or even a precursor-like state () This concept termed dedifferentiation has been implicated in the pathogenesis of diabetes (Weir

Dedifferentiation is the progression of cells from a more differentiated to a less differentiated state It is observed in a variety of processes such as cancer organ regeneration and stem cell renewal but it has been difficult to study because there are few experimentally tractable systems that dedifferentiate (1–4) Dedifferentiation in Dictyostelium is an experimentally tractable process

Finally the effect of the mutation P1351L on the structure of the protein was also examined 3D modeling was generated from the aa 480 up to the C-terminal of the protein (aa 1770) using I-TASSER and 91% of the residues were modeled at an accuracy of 90% (Figure 2 )

Purpose: The dismal prognosis of pancreatic cancer has been linked to poor tumor differentiation However molecular basis of pancreatic cancer differentiation and potential therapeutic value of the underlying molecules remain unknown We investigated the mechanistic underexpression of Krppel-like factor 4 (KLF4) in pancreatic cancer and defined a novel epigenetic pathway of its activation

2019-5-25Combinatorial libraries were screened for molecules that induce mouse myogenic lineage committed cells to dedifferentiate in vitro A 2 6-disubstituted purine reversine was discovered that induces lineage reversal of C2C12 cells to become multipotent progenitor cells which can redifferentiate into osteoblasts and adipocytes This and other such molecules are likely to provide new insights

Epithelial tight junctions participate in the regulation of gene expression by controlling the activity of transcription factors that can interact with junctional components One such protein is the Y-box transcription factor ZONAB/DbpA that binds to ZO-1 a component of the junctional plaque Symplekin another nuclear protein that can associate with tight junctions functions in the

Notch signaling is an evolutionarily conserved pathway that plays essential roles in cell fate choice organ development metabolism and tumorigenesis (Gridley 2010 Andersson et al 2011 Guruharsha et al 2012 Tao et al 2014 Bi and Kuang 2015) Notch signal transduction is initiated upon binding of a Notch receptor with a ligand located on neighbor cells which drives sequential

A major concern with the presence of a RAS mutation in a benign nodule is its potential for malignant transformation and dedifferentiation since it is a potent oncogene (4 5) The presence of the BRAF V600E mutation confers a PPV for thyroid malignancy so total thyroidectomy is the appropriate treatment even if the nodule has an

Targeting stem-like cells in cancer is critical to overcoming resistance and relapse post chemotherapy or immunotherapy We elucidate an alternative-splicing driven mechanism of cancer dedifferentiation and define a molecular context wherein stem-like tumor cells show enhanced susceptibility to JNK inhibition MBNL1 and MAP2K7 ∆exon2 can prognosticate patients for JNK inhibition that can

We confirmed the occurrence of degranulation and dedifferentiation in both models (Figure S2A) These data suggest that dedifferentiation is a shared cell-autonomous mechanism of β cell loss rather than a specific response to multiple pregnancies

Quiescent reserve "+4 crypt cells" are thought to be a major source for recovery of ablated intestinal stem cells Shivdasani et al show instead that recovery occurs almost exclusively by dedifferentiation of recent stem cell progeny which requires the transcription factor ASCL2 for this restorative potential
