Paper: Combating multidrug-resistant Gram-negative bacteria with structurally nanoengineered antimicrobial peptide polymers

Authors: Lam SJ, O'Brien-Simpson NM, Pantarat N, Sulistio A, Wong EH, Chen YY, Lenzo JC, Holden JA, Blencowe A, Reynolds EC, Qiao GG.

Abstract: With the recent emergence of reports on resistant Gram-negative 'superbugs', infections caused by multidrug-resistant (MDR) Gram-negative bacteria have been named as one of the most urgent global health threats due to the lack of effective and biocompatible drugs. Here, we show that a class of antimicrobial agents, termed 'structurally nanoengineered antimicrobial peptide polymers' (SNAPPs) exhibit sub-μM activity against all Gram-negative bacteria tested, including ESKAPE and colistin-resistant and MDR (CMDR) pathogens, while demonstrating low toxicity. SNAPPs are highly effective in combating CMDR Acinetobacter baumannii infections in vivo, the first example of a synthetic antimicrobial polymer with CMDR Gram-negative pathogen efficacy. Furthermore, we did not observe any resistance acquisition by A. baumannii (including the CMDR strain) to SNAPPs. Comprehensive analyses using a range of microscopy and (bio)assay techniques revealed that the antimicrobial activity of SNAPPs proceeds via a multimodal mechanism of bacterial cell death by outer membrane destabilization, unregulated ion movement across the cytoplasmic membrane and induction of the apoptotic-like death pathway, possibly accounting for why we did not observe resistance to SNAPPs in CMDR bacteria. Overall, SNAPPs show great promise as low-cost and effective antimicrobial agents and may represent a weapon in combating the growing threat of MDR Gram-negative bacteria.

Paper: Combined inhibition of DDR1 and Notch signaling is a therapeutic strategy for KRAS-driven lung adenocarcinoma

Authors: Ambrogio C, Gómez-López G, Falcone M, Vidal A, Nadal E, Crosetto N, Blasco RB, Fernández-Marcos PJ, Sánchez-Céspedes M, Ren X, Wang Z, Ding K, Hidalgo M, Serrano M, Villanueva A, Santamaría D, Barbacid M.

Abstract:
Patients with advanced Kirsten rat sarcoma viral oncogene homolog (KRAS)-mutant lung adenocarcinoma are currently treated with standard chemotherapy because of a lack of efficacious targeted therapies. We reasoned that the identification of mediators of Kras signaling in early mouse lung hyperplasias might bypass the difficulties that are imposed by intratumor heterogeneity in advanced tumors, and that it might unveil relevant therapeutic targets. Transcriptional profiling of Kras(G12V)-driven mouse hyperplasias revealed intertumor diversity with a subset that exhibited an aggressive transcriptional profile analogous to that of advanced human adenocarcinomas. The top-scoring gene in this profile encodes the tyrosine kinase receptor DDR1. The genetic and pharmacological inhibition of DDR1 blocked tumor initiation and tumor progression, respectively. The concomitant inhibition of both DDR1 and Notch signaling induced the regression of KRAS;TP53-mutant patient-derived lung xenografts (PDX) with a therapeutic efficacy that was at least comparable to that of standard chemotherapy. Our data indicate that the combined inhibition of DDR1 and Notch signaling could be an effective targeted therapy for patients with KRAS-mutant lung adenocarcinoma.

Paper: 
In vivo activation of a T helper 2-driven innate immune response in
lung fibrosis induced by multi-walled carbon nanotubes

Authors: Dong J, Ma Q

Abstract:
Pulmonary exposure to certain forms of carbon nanotubes (CNT) induces
fibrosing lesions in the lungs that manifest an acute inflammation
followed by chronic interstitial fibrosis. The mechanism of CNT-induced
fibrogenesis is largely unknown. The biphasic development with
drastically distinct pathologic manifestations suggests a junction of
acute-to-chronic transition. Here we analyzed the molecular pathways and
regulators underlying the pathologic development of CNT-induced lung
fibrosis. Mice were exposed to multi-walled CNT (MWCNT; XNRI MWNT-7,
Mitsui; 40 μg) by pharyngeal aspiration for 7 days along with vehicle
and carbonaceous controls. Genome-wide microarray analyses of the lungs
identified a range of differentially expressed genes that potentially
function in the acute-to-chronic transition through pathways involving
immune and inflammatory regulation, responses to stress and
extracellular stimuli, and cell migration and adhesion. In particular, a
T helper 2 (Th2)-driven innate immune response was significantly
enriched. We then demonstrated that MWCNT induced the expression of Th2
cytokines interleukin (IL)-4 and IL-13, and a panel of signature
downstream genes, such as Il4i1, Chia, and Ccl11/Eotaxin, time
dependently. Induction of Th2 cytokines took place in CD4+ T lymphocytes
indicating activation of Th2 cells. Furthermore, induction involved
activation of a Th2 cell-specific signaling pathway through
phosphorylation of STAT6 and up-regulation of GATA-3 to mediate the
transcription of Th2 target genes. Our study uncovers activation of a
Th2-driven immune/inflammatory response during pulmonary fibrosis
development induced by MWCNT. The findings provide novel insights into
the molecular events that control the transition from an acute
inflammatory response to chronic fibrosis through Th2 functions in
CNT-exposed lungs

Paper: Structural and transcriptomic response to antenatal corticosteroids in an Erk3-null mouse model of respiratory distress

Authors: Pew BK, Harris RA, Sbrana E, Guaman MC, Shope C, Chen R, Meloche S, Aagaard K.

Abstract:
BACKGROUND:
Neonatal respiratory distress syndrome in preterm infants is a leading cause of neonatal death. Pulmonary insufficiency-related infant mortality rates have improved with antenatal glucocorticoid treatment and neonatal surfactant replacement. However, the mechanism of glucocorticoid-promoted fetal lung maturation is not understood fully, despite decades of clinical use. We previously have shown that genetic deletion of Erk3 in mice results in growth restriction, cyanosis, and early neonatal lethality because of pulmonary immaturity and respiratory distress. Recently, we demonstrated that the addition of postnatal surfactant administration to antenatal dexamethasone treatment resulted in enhanced survival of neonatal Erk3-null mice.

OBJECTIVE:
To better understand the molecular underpinnings of corticosteroid-mediated lung maturation, we used high-throughput transcriptomic and high-resolution morphologic analysis of the murine fetal lung. We sought to examine the alterations in fetal lung structure and function that are associated with neonatal respiratory distress and antenatal glucocorticoid treatment.

STUDY DESIGN:
Dexamethasone (0.4 mg/kg) or saline solution was administered to pregnant dams on embryonic days 16.5 and 17.5. Fetal lungs were collected and analyzed by microCT and RNA-seq for differential gene expression and pathway interactions with genotype and treatment. Results from transcriptomic analysis guided further investigation of candidate genes with the use of immunostaining in murine and human fetal lung tissue.

RESULTS:
Erk3(-/-) mice exhibited atelectasis with decreased overall porosity and saccular space relative to wild type, which was ameliorated by glucocorticoid treatment. Of 596 differentially expressed genes (q < 0.05) that were detected by RNA-seq, pathway analysis revealed 36 genes (q < 0.05) interacting with dexamethasone, several with roles in lung development, which included corticotropin-releasing hormone and surfactant protein B. Corticotropin-releasing hormone protein was detected in wild-type and Erk3(-/-) lungs at E14.5, with significantly temporally altered expression through embryonic day 18.5. Antenatal dexamethasone attenuated corticotropin-releasing hormone at embryonic day 18.5 in both wild-type and Erk3(-/-) lungs (0.56-fold and 0.67-fold; P < .001). Wild type mice responded to glucocorticoid administration with increased pulmonary surfactant protein B (P = .003). In contrast, dexamethasone treatment in Erk3(-/-) mice resulted in decreased surfactant protein B (P = .012). In human validation studies, we confirmed that corticotropin-releasing hormone protein is present in the fetal lung at 18 weeks of gestation and increases in expression with progression towards viability (22 weeks of gestation; P < .01).

CONCLUSION:
Characterization of whole transcriptome gene expression revealed glucocorticoid-mediated regulation of corticotropin-releasing hormone and surfactant protein B via Erk3-independent and -dependent mechanisms, respectively. We demonstrated for the first time the expression and temporal regulation of corticotropin-releasing hormone protein in midtrimester human fetal lung. This unique model allows the effects of corticosteroids on fetal pulmonary morphologic condition to be distinguished from functional gene pathway regulation. These findings implicate Erk3 as a potentially important molecular mediator of antenatal glucocorticoid action in promoting surfactant protein production in the preterm neonatal lung and expanding our understanding of key mechanisms of clinical therapy to improve neonatal survival

Health Disparities Poster Competition
Mon 4/3/2017 12:00PM - 4:00PM
Starzl Biomedical Science Tower

University of Pittsburgh graduate students, postdoctoral trainees, and first professional students (MD, DMD, PharmD, Rehabilitation Science, and Nursing) in the biomedical and behavioral sciences, including psychology and social work, are invited to submit abstracts for the 2017 Health Disparities Poster Competition.

Sponsored by the Schools of the Health Sciences, this event gives young researchers an opportunity to present their work and expand their scientific professional skill set. The term "disparities" applies to differences in health status in any studied population compared to the comparable majority (or more commonly studied) population. They expect work in disparities based on race or ethnicity, gender, disability, sexual orientation, age, and other parameters.

$100 prizes will be awarded in four categories: master's, doctoral, postdoctoral, and first professional.

Knowledge of copyright is essential for scholarly work, beginning with your thesis or dissertation. To re-use figures and images in theses and dissertations, permissions must be obtained; however, these skills will give you a jump start for preparing for future work that builds on the work of others. In this workshop, learn the basics of copyright in academia: your rights as an author, re-use rights of the work of others, and what you need to know about copyright scholarship.

Knowledge of copyright is essential for scholarly work, beginning with your thesis or dissertation. To re-use figures and images in theses and dissertations, permissions must be obtained; however, these skills will give you a jump start for preparing the future work that builds on the work of others. In this workshop, learn the basics of copyright in academia: your rights as an author, re-use rights of the work of others, and what you need to know about copyright and scholarship.
